Be careful with professional con-artist and convicted criminal Jay Hoffman. He tricked me into investing in a shadow movie project. He also got investments from other wealthy, older individuals.

This is an individual that claims to be a large donor of conservative causes and to the GOP. Well, he is a HUGE scam artist and a thief. But here is the news, he is a convicted felon and CAN NOT vote in any elections. He served over 25 months in Federal Prison for fraud, theft and wire fraud. 

Let's look at his history (this is from public records and only reflects those cases where people sued him. We are sure that he has scammed hundreds of people):

In 2001 Jay Hoffman was CONVICTED and INCARCERATED on several counts of wire fraud and for defrauding and stealing money from real estate clients. He served a 27-month federal prison sentence and was released from jail in May 13, 2004 (Federal Prison inmate: Register Number: 20934-112). [continued below]....

..... (more below)

  • In 2009 he was sued for FRAUD and found guilty (case BC414456 LA Superior Court) 
  • In 2012 he was sued for FRAUD, conversion and was found liable (guilty) and ordered to pay over $600,000 (LA Superior Court Case BC492373) 
  • In 2015 has was sued again for fraud by Gene Bicknell for over $1,000,000 (LA Superior Court BC601348) We have uploaded the complaint document from the court here. 
  • There are about 39 other lawsuits and small claims court filings in the Los Angeles court website alone. 
  • More about his time in jail (for FRAUD):

In 2001 Jay Hoffman was convicted and incarcerated on several counts of wire fraud and for defrauding and stealing money from real estate clients. He served a 27-month federal prison sentence and was released from jail in May 13, 2004 (Federal Prison inmate: Register Number: 20934-112). 

Prosecutors said Hoffman told one client that he could arrange for reduced payoffs on home mortgages because of his connections at the Resolution Trust Corp., the government agency created to take over failing savings and loan associations in the 1980s


He conned the client into giving him a cashier’s check for $169,000 to pay off a mortgage but then used the money for his own purposes, prosecutors said.


In the second fraud case, Hoffman was accused of pocketing $500,000 that a client had given him to place in escrow in the purchase of a $2.9-million office building in Van Nuys. 

BEWARE, this guy is trying all tricks to cover his tracks on the Internet, including hiding his conviction. Click here michaelnotreagan.files.wordp...ommitment1.pdf to view: Jay Hoffman JUDGMENT AND COMMITMENT documents detailing the crimes and the sentence that Jay Hoffman received for Fraud. Note that these documents are public records obtained from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER). We are just re-posting publicly available records of a convicted criminal, Jay Hoffman.

He is trying to get a gig with Rick Perry for president 2016 campaign. He was named a leader in California for Rick Perry in 2012. How? This guy can't even vote with a felony conviction!

To avoid confusion because of popular name, note that Jay Hoffman is also known as Jay S. Hoffman or Jay Sidney Hoffman with residence in Calabasas, California, Los Angeles, CA. Some of his "companies" include 28 Entertainment, USA Global, Bearded Man, USA Global Development, Reagan Group, Reagan Legacy Foundation, Reagan.com, The Hoffman Group.

Jay Hoffman is currently being sued for Fraud, Conspiracy to commit fraud, conversion (theft), money had and received and more! This is in Los Angeles Superior Court Case number BC601348. This guy is a dirtbag. Based on what I am reading, Jay Hoffman, his son Brian Hoffman and his company 28 Entertaintment stole at least a million dollars from O Gene Bicknell. 

I am looking for other public documents including transcript of depositions, but in the meantime, here is the complaint.

It would be a lot of fun of Jay Hoffman starts suing for slander, we can make all his life and crimes public really easily and video tape his depositions... Please, please, have him sue everyone. I am sure that the district attorney would have a field day putting this guy behind bars again.
