Recently I was reflecting on some past issues that were very painful in my life and during this time I realized how many mistakes I have made. One of those mistakes was being cheated out of the property my father and I owned. My name is Todd Taylor and father is Wayne Taylor who died before this horrible event took place. Let me share my story of what happened. A man named Mario & his wife Merida Romero approached me during a vulnerable time in my life.

During this time I was just released from prison, my father had died and I was alone. I wanted to sell the only property I had inherited and this man Mario and his family lied and swindled me out of my property. Let me just name all parties involved. Mario and Merdia Romero, his anut Nellie and her husband Robert Hoffman, they also have a friend named Bernadette, she is the one who stole the deed to the house.

Bernadette convinced me to hand the deed over to my property at 8675 Appian Way in the Hollywood Hills. It was a home my father purchased 30 years prior to his death. See I was in a very bad place, my father was a drug dealer he bought this home because it was a prime location to the actors and entertainment business. Whom most were his clients for many, many years.

This property was notorious for actors buying drugs from Wayne Taylor. This is why he placed himself in this neighborhood being in a prime location of the Hollywood Hills it was good for business and he did this for over 30 years. His clients were actors during 60 and throughout the 90's. Long story short we lived there over 30 years and my life was in a very dark place by the time he died. I wasn't thinking clearly at all, so Bernadette who was a friend of Nelly's swindled me out of the deed (because the house was paid for). Soon after, Mario was manipulating me that the house wasn't worth the value you see it listed at 450,000.

The house never sold for that much, never. All of them cheated me and only gave me less than 60,000 for the property. I won't deny the house was in very bad shape, regardless, the property is valuable. Mario first approached me, then later pushed me to move from the property, so I had to leave and find a place to live. I moved to Orange grove in West Hollywood. One day Bernadette shows up at my house said she was Nellie's friend and that she thought it was best she hold the deed.

I never met her before and I know now that Mario and Nellie put her up to it. Now nine years later Mario is stuck because the reality is he can't sell it. The lot is empty, because Nelly who gave the money to Mario to buy the house,can't afford to rebuild a new house after having to knock down the old house. Its incredibly expensive so now he was waiting, hoping someone will bail him out of this situation. Waiting to make him a deal or go into helping him rebuild.

Either way nobody wants this vacant lot. I know Mario can't afford it, his anut Nelly bitched and complained to me how expensive the castings were that have to be placed into the ground just to lay the foundation down. He uses the excuse about getting Cancer this is why the property has sitting so long. This a*****e is fine he has a speech problem and had a box in his vocal cords for years even when I knew him. He doesn't have cancer, he just wants people to feel sorry for him so he can swindle someone new to get him out for the hole he dug for himself into.

These people still owe me over 300,000 dollars. I had a real estate broker and she sided with them and ripped me as well. I wish I could remember her name. So don't let him fool you or cheat you with the Cancer story, if you find yourself wanting to make a deal with him, just watch out. He is a f*cking liar and thief. His Aunt Nelly, his wife, their friend Bernadette. By the way Nelly owed me a lot of money and refused to pay me because Bernadette had the deed, that was her excuse.

Knowing all along she was the one who had Bernadette get it from me. I never signed any papers, never closed the deal. I believe they forged my name on documents of ownership. I realized it all to late it was all a set up from the start, all of it. They stole my house and now their stuck with a lemon. I guess the got what they deserve!!!! That's what happens when your a crook. Just so everybody knows if you plan on buying this land or doing business with Mario and his anut Nellie, be mindful of the bad elements that are soiled on this land.

I wasn't kidding when I said my father was big time drug dealer and with that comes many horrible things that happened in that house. Nothing good will ever come from any of it.The land is soiled, even if you build a beautiful new home, I truly believe evil resides on this property. All I can say is I am now in a better place far and away from 8675 Appian Way. I thank God for it.

Mario ripped someone else off too

AUTHOR: Jimmy - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, June 11, 2018

   Hello Todd, I’m sorry to hear the tragic story that you posted. It’s unfortunate that I didn’t see this seven years ago. Mario was very quick to strike and found a friend of mine and took everything and so much more from him and his family. Mario approached him and told him he wanted to do business with him. His story is very long and I will try to be as detailed as possible. Mario approached my friend around 2011 or 2012. Mario convinced him to go into business with him as he was a General contractor. Of course, he appealed to him in sympathy due to his cancer. He made my friend move his business into his property on La Brea and pay him $4000 a month in rent plus his property taxes. He would also make deals with him and other people all up in the air, writing things on pieces of paper that no one could understand but bought into them due to him appearing to be a nice person and having had cancer. Initially he told my friend that he wasn’t going to collect any money until his side of the business which was his doors that he makes supposedly, made any money.

Well he wanted to get paid after all starting the first week he worked there. It took one year for my friend to realize that Mario was scamming him. Mario convinced my friend to send one of his relatives to Mexico to work on a big project there and when his relative arrived there, he realized that everything that Mario was saying was a lie. He had several men working in the field from 5 AM in the morning until 6 PM at night getting paid nothing. He would show up every three days bringing the animals food and bringing the workers only a bag of beans and some tortillas expecting them to cook their own food when they’ve been working under the heat long hours. The poor workers would sleep on the floor. He convinced my friend also that he had a property that was for sale in Mexico and if he made him payments wired to one of his wife Merida’s account,

The property with you shortly be his. My friend never got that property. Mario tried to have other relatives and friends of my friend to financially go in on projects having to do with a wood mill and avocado and blueberry fields. One of the projects was your property. Long story short, a lot of the money was given to this man if we should call him that. When my friend decided to part ways, Mario was not having it. I guess he didn’t want to stop receiving his steady paycheck that my friend was providing him. He ended up suing my friend and unfortunately the jury bought into the cancer story too and ruled in his favor. My friend now is in bankruptcy, is losing his house, is divorced and Lost his business due to Mario sucking the life out of it. Mario is still pursuing against my friend to no avail. I randomly checked and noticed that Mario’s own lawyer is now suing Mario.
