San Diegan convicted of advance fee fraud scheme

Group fleeced more than 1000 victims of $26 million

San Diegan Joel Nathanson was convicted yesterday (February 19) of his role in an "advance fee" fraud scheme. Six defendants in all were convicted in Philadelphia, according to the United States Attorney's Office there.

An advance-fee fraud scheme is a particularly cruel one. Real estate developers, inventors, and others who cannot get credit from conventional sources pay an advance fee to a company that claims it has connections with lenders. But the company has no intention of finding lenders; it pockets the fees paid by victims.

In this case, the company was named Remington Financial Group (later Remington Capital). Nathanson "was one of Remington's most proficient employees and helped Remington defraud many victims," says the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Philadelphia.

Don - how many con men can you put in your repertoire? Help me, does she expect candy and a cake on Monday for her day just declared on ch10 news? Whatever her name, Filner accuser number don't care. I think they said she was Grandma. Is that Todd Gloria's idea of messing with our collective minds?

shirleyberan: You must be talking about the Shannon lady, who is a great grandmother. At least, she doesn't get money. Best, Don Bauder

I'm sorry, that wasn't nice. It's just the shock of it all. I bet we can find something we appreciate about this crazy BS and ignorant crap.

shirleyberan: Lawyer Gloria Allred's strategy was to round up all the women she could find to besmirch Filner. Allred thought that would lend credibility to McCormack Jackson's suit. In my judgment, McCormack Jackson wouldn't have gotten her quarter million (up to half of which will go to Allred) except that the city attorney was trying to save face. He would have been embarrassed had she, like Shannon, gottten nothing. Best, Don Bauder

It's true. February 24th is Peggy Shannon Day.

shirleyberan: Go out and celebrate. Best, Don Bauder
