It is obvious that Nationwide REO, Prudential REO, Chase REO and other related REO companies,
US Mortgage Specialists, LLC, First Trans Global, LLC, First Metro Real Estate Services, LLC in Detroit,
and individuals going by the names Joseph Eptein, Tom Martin, John Trumbell, John Roberts are either committing fraud, complicit in fraud or accessories to fraud.
They use fraudulent inducement to talk unwary investors into purchasing worthless real estate with empty statements that they will sell at higher prices, when they have no intention to do so.
(The only property that sells may be the first one they sell to investor which is only sold to a related company).
They have intent to defraud by lying to investors regarding bulk sales of properties to foreign investors which is not the case. They have intent to defraud by switching out properties in purchase agreements with different properties on quitclaim deeds recorded with Wayne County recorder of deeds.
They have intent to defraud by knowingly transferring forfeiture properties while representing same properties to be bank REOs. They have intent to defraud be transferring properties they do not have ownership of but rather Wayne County has ownership in tax foreclosure proceedings.
They are committing wire fraud by obtaining money by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and transmitting wire communications (fax and phone) in interstate commerce,
to include contracts for executing their schemes.
In sum, they are involved in criminal activity and subject to criminal investigation. I highly suggest that all investors who have had contact or been swindled by alleged perpetrators file criminal complaints with their state attorney general and nearest FBI office.
