 BE AWARE OF MICHAEL W. FEHRENBACHER married to Amy Eddington Fehrenbacher Address (((REDACTED))) Batavia, IL 60510 I am Anthony William Fehrenbacher, I am Michael William Fehrenbacher's youngest sibling. l strongly recommend that no one does business with Michael Fehrenbacher. Michael called me up one day and told me that he had a great investment opportunity for me and my family, it sounded like a solid investment so I withdrew $55,000 from my E*TRADE account and wired the money to an account that Michael Fehrenbacher set up for me. Michael Fehrenbacher kept giving me the run around every time I asked about my investment, then as more time passed he finally informed me that I lost all my money.

When I requested documentation showing the loss so I could write it off on my taxes he ignored my requests. I have every reason to believe he stole my money. Then when I questioned him about the money in an email this was his reply: "I am not sure what you mean about the 55K, but for the record you choose to invest 50K, not 55K, and if memory serves me correct you sent the $$$ into the New York investor directly, not to me, thus making you liable for your own loss, not to mention I made you the 55K thru Apple and Facebook stock, its not even like you earned it." That's my older brother if he takes care of his youngest sibling like that I'm sure he's gonna do a great job with your investments. Good luck if you do invest . Hopefully, you will have "earned" your money to invest. BUYER BEWARE OF::: Michael Fehrenbacher associated with: United Funding Midwest funding St. Charles, IL & Final expense insurance

Joe Wall


POSTED: Saturday, January 07, 2017

  Joe Wall I was doing research on Mr. Michael Fehrenbacher I read his brothers report and your response as well. 1.It doesn't say that you have to have case numbers or evictions to post anything on rip off reports. It states freedom of speech and to make others aware of business actions that occurred in the past so people are aware and can decide if they still choose to do business with that person. “The fact that society may find speech offensive is not a sufficient reason for suppressing it. Indeed, if it is the speaker’s opinion that gives offense, that consequence is a reason for according it constitutional protection.” 2.For somebody doing research on a paper and demanding information and threatening if they do not give it to you that you were going to post bad reports on them.This is very disturbing to me it is looking like you do have ties with Michael or you are indeed Michael. 3.I noticed when I filled out this response that you can attach pictures you should take a picture of your drivers license or birth certificate and your school ID and post that for your credibility on who you actually are. 4.As well there is a CASE NUMBERS and DATES for each report if you could put all the other case numbers that Joe Wall USA responded to for your research as well. I have not yet found any other reports that you've responded to other than this one for Michael Fehrenbacher 5.I'm looking forward to seeing the photos and case numbers Thank you (Joe Wall USA) it will be nice to no if you are telling or writing a story?

Michael Fehrenbacher PONZI scheme

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Friday, January 06, 2017

 Joe Wall, I am a little confused, you say you are writing a paper on PONZI scheme's? I would think that anyone writing a paper on "something" would have basic research skills. Here is a case number for you to research Case No.11-cv-6279. This is a PONZI scheme case. It was filed in the UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION It states on page 12, "that the court finds in favor of Coexist for the sale of unregistered securities in violation of Fla. Stat. 517.07. Pursuant of Fla State, the Court hold Defendants (MICHAEL FEHRENBACHER, UNITED FUNDING, MWF FINANCIAL & MORTGAGE CENTER,INC and MIDWEST FUNDING BANKCOP) jointly and severally liable in the amount of $694,271.40 plus interest accruing. It was so ordered on August 2, 2016 by US district Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman." It is public knowledge, Google it. Also, this money you state he "won" I would like to see a case number (e.g. like I posted above) and what court system awarded this. Just a heads up from personal experience with Michael Fehrenbacher. He will act like he is someone else so he can justify his actions and look like a good person. He is far from that, just ask ANY of my (and his) siblings. I find it difficult to believe you are who you claim to be. Seriously, how can you claim to be researching "PONZI schemes" but not have any of the information concerning the PONZI scheme Michael Fehrenbacher was involved in? What I do believe is you either have ties with Michael or this is actually Michael Fehrenbacher posing as another person. If I'm wrong I apologize. However, having a brother like Michael makes it very difficult to trust anyone. Here is a suggestion, the best way to learn firsthand about a real PONZI scheme would be to invest with Michael Fehrenbacher you should get plenty of information for your article, you won't be disappointed. Of course, that is if he isn't too busy making YouTube video's selling life insurance to elderly people Sadly, Michael Fehrenbacher is my brother and My opinion is that he is not a good person.

Question for Mr. Anthony Fehrenbacher

AUTHOR: Joey - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, December 22, 2016

Good Day Mr. Anthony Fehrenbacher:


My name is Joe Wall, first and foremost I am sad to hear about your financial loss and dispute with your siblings, I can't image the stress you must be going thru at this time.  Now,  I am in the process of writing a paper on ponzi scheme's and I came across your report (among others).  I would like to reference the report in my paper, but before I do that I would like to get clarity on a few statements in your report.


1)  You provided a statement that You, Anthony Fehrenbacher wired the money directly to a NYC account.  Was this account owned by your sibling?  if the account isn't owned by your sibling, how did you come to the conclusion he was responsible for the loss?  So did he wire Your money, or did You wire your money?  And do you have the wire reciept?  It can trace the owner of the account you wired to.

2)  Your claim stated your brother earned all the money they you,  Anthony Fehrenbacher loss in the investment.  So was this his money or Your money that was loss?  If it was Your money, may I ask how you were able to earn and save that much money?

3)  If I were Anthony Fehrenbacher, assuming everything is 100% true that you reported,  the first thing I would have done is contacted the FBI and filed an investagation.  If the FBI find's Your brother liable, You will be provided a federal court case #, then report the information on here, so everyone Knows your report isn't made up with a bunch a False Claims - No offense intended but 99.9% of the claims on here don't reference any type of court case which ='s No creditability.

4)  I checked on PACER (Public Access to Court Records).  I don't find any filings by Anthony Fehrenbacher, but I did find a case where your brother was declared a victum of a ponzi scheme by the Federal Bureau of Investagation, and awarded a 7 digit restitution, as in over 3M.  Is your investment related?  I read it and it made no mention of Anthony Fehrenbacher, but find this very coincidtal.  

5)  It looks like you cut a paste a portion of an email.  Is it possible you can put the entire email chain up?  Its just much more credital that way.  I would like to see the header, date & time of the email, entire base of the email as well as the email chain.  It looks as though a portion of the email posted was a response to another email.  I would like to see the trigger email that caused the response.


No matter what happens, I appreciate your time and hope you find resolution.  Its sad to me no matter how I look at it and one of the reason's I am doing the research paper.  Last, I don't mean for any of my questions to be offensive, I am just trying to get a clear understanding of the case.


Thank You.
