Tony Hoffman and Hal Morris Located? Gurus of the Past Alert

Months ago I asked in this blog whatever happened to 1980s-era get-rich-quick creative real estate gurus Tony Hoffman and Hal Morris. I had a personal reason for asking.

Some of my many loyal readers have come up with the answer.

Apparently both live in Rancho Mirage, California. Tony Hoffman I'm told now runs an Internet gambling website operating out of Costa Rica.

One blog reader actually gave me his home address.

All this has not been confirmed. I haven't knocked on Hoffman's door to see if he answers. But to see him still committed to brazen, cutting edge entrepreneurism is an example for us all.

Well, maybe not.

Hoffman, after all, was the producer of the notorious "O.J. Simpson is Innocent" video. I find it illustrative of the get-rich-quick-in-real-estate industry's low ethics and despicable moral standards that Hoffman could easily move from real estate guru to ally of double murderer O.J. Simpson.

All this aside, does anyone know why these two gurus of all places on Earth would settle in Rancho Mirage, California? Is there a Retired Real Estate Guru Nursing Home there?

Thanks to all who have responded to my question. Keep your answers coming on those gurus of the past.
