Real Estate Guru Rapist
The sheer depravity of real estate gurus never ceases to amaze me because I expect the unexpected.
Selling bogus get-rich-quick home study courses and seminar tickets and scamming innocent hard working people out of their savings and credit is not enough.
Neither are crooked real estate deals, convictions for foreclosure rescue fraud, blatant illegal shilling for their products, launching anonymous smear campaigns against critics of their industry, even strong direct links to pedophiles and kidnappers. All these have been proven by me in this blog.
I thought a real estate guru selling cocaine out of his property management office to buy rental properties with the proceeds was the bottom, the lowest they could go.
I was wrong.
A famous real estate guru still selling his courses and seminars today has been accused of raping a female attendee at one of his events. According to pleadings submitted in a state court civil filing, this guru lured a woman to his hotel room with the promise of a free home study course after one of his seminars. When she resisted his advances, he forced himself on her for nearly one hour, repeatedly raping her and saying "You should feel lucky" and "Tell me how lucky you feel" while he sodomized her.
After the attack, he threatened the woman with a lawsuit and other violent retribution if she disclosed the rape. His last words to her were "No one will believe you. I'm famous and you are nobody." The woman went home to her husband and together they reported the rape to police three days later. The local authorities are now conducting "a felony investigation into this man's history and the events of this night."
I am not disclosing the name of this guru at this time. He has not been convicted in a criminal court or found liable in a civil one. But the witness statement and evidence against the guru are strong and believable. She did attend his event. He was staying in a hotel room where his seminar was being held. And I also know by reputation what a disreputable sleaze this guru truly is.
The real estate gurus when confronted with the widespread fraud and criminality within their profession often make the argument there are bad apples in every bunch. Wrong. Sellers of get-rich-quick real estate courses are criminals by definition and the whole barrel of them is infected. When criminals consort together some will be more morally decayed than others. The only real question is why any person would want to be a member of this sickening club.
