William Hogarty, Greg Lomba, James "JR" Rivera and Jim Torpey have now all been charged with 15 felonies related to short pay refinance and loan modifications scams. The charges included: 12 counts of felony real estate fraud and grand theft and three counts of felony criminal conspiracy. In addition, William Hogarty faces an additional count of felony perjury for lying to the Department of Justice by telling them under oath that he refunded $421,000 to his scam victims when they found only about $30,000 had been refunded. There are also enhancements to these charges because of the hundreds of thousands of dollars they are charged with stealing. These new charges are in addition to the felony assault charges William Hogarty has pending against him for felony assault.
William Hogarty's bankruptcy was denied after the DOJ investigated him and were taking him to trial for fraud. He named most of those scammed as creditors in his bankruptcy in order to avoid having to pay anyone back. Thank god it didn't work and the bankruptcy has been thrown out and now he can be sued again.
Now that he has no protection from the bankruptcy court, if you were scammed by him of OF Lending, please file a small claims suit immediately before the statute of limitations runs out. He will likely have to cop a plea in these new charges of fraud, grand theft and conspiracy which would mean he'd likely have to admit some guilt. This should make it very easy to secure a judgment against him since it will involve a guilty or no contest plea. I watch Judge Judy enough to know that an admission in criminal court seals the deal in civil court if someone sues for damages related to the crime. I know that sounds white trash and all, but it makes perfect sense. Even if he claims he doesn't have money and even if he ends up behind bars for years, I believe judgments are good for ten years and can be renewed twice. Therefore if handled correctly, this can haunt him for 30 years and you can go after him in the future.
If you need information on how to reach him in order to serve him, please message me and I can help you locate him. Even if William didn't sell you the program personally, he is personally responsible as the broker and has been charged as such.
By the way, he is now running a used car dealership, I kid you not. So watch out. The dealership is called "Hogarty Auto Sales".
William will be on here in 3....2.....1..... claiming to be a victim and that the world is out to get him and that it isn't his fault he preyed on those most vulnerable by the collapse of the real estate market, and then he'll even give some economic advice/input as if anyone cares what he thinks. Finally, he'll talk about how "blessed" he is because of his family as if anyone cares about these lies either. Let's just say that he threw his "amazing wife" out when she was pregnant with his child so he could carry on with some girlfriend and that he was arrested for beating up a roomate for giving his pregnant wife information about the going ons in the house with the girlfriend". The current wife was the mistress when he was married to the mother of his other children. Ick. Oh yeah, He'll also swear he'll tell "the real truth" when the criminal proceedings are behind him. Ummmmm, aren't you supposed to tell the truth to the DOJ, Federal Judges, DRE and DA?
Let me add "so think about it and have a nice day".

Just in case you missed it, here's a link to an update on the story about William Hogarty that Channel 7 did today. You can go to their web page tomorrow to see the video. His attorney now says he's willing to pay everyone back. Funny how 16 felony charges has changed his position on this.
