Between 2016 and 2017, the victims in this incident were befriended and encouraged to invest in the suspects real estate business. The victims invested a combined total of $500,000 with the suspect. Despite repeated promises of returning the money, none of the victims had any of their investments returned and investigators believe that none of the investments were used as indicated.
