BOY OH BOY.YOU SURE ARE SELF DESTRUCING NOW HUH?
Open message to OF Lending victims: If you were contacted by ANYONE 'working' on behalf of OF Lending after the date Bill Hogarty says OF Lending went out of business, (on the bankruptcy paperwork either December 31, or January 31), please contact me. I have some good news for you. SamuelsOhana1@yahoo.com
For those of you following this OF Lending/William Hogarty saga, I wanted to give a quick update. Please know that I have not independently had the opportunity to verify this myself, but I believe it to be 100% true.
Gregory Lomba, who has posted on here and who worked for Bill Hogarty as his VP for the Loan Modification Team, was arrested 3 weeks ago on charges of larceny related to his loan modification scam. Bail was set at $100K and he apparently was just released, I'd have to assume on bail. There's hearing tomorrow which I believe is the preliminary hearing and several of his victims have been asked to testify. The hearing is at 8:30 tomorrow, 2/14/2012, at the courthouse in Contra Costa at 725 Court Street in Martinez. The wheels of justice take time, but looks like time ran out for Greg Lomba.
I realize there hasn't been many updates on Bill and Cristy Hogarty and James Rivera, but please don't believe that it's because this has been forgotten or that they won't be held responsible at some point. Alameda seems to take a little more time in reviewing cases for potential criminal charges as do the feds, but please know it's not becase this has been dropped. I promise this is not the case and at some point I think these three will likely learn the lesson that Greg Lomba is, but in a much bigger way.
Email me if you have any questions or still need help. The statute of limitations will run out before too long for some of his first victims so if you haven't taken action, please think about doing something sooner rather than later before it's too late. My email address is email@example.com.
