@yechiel what platform did you meet Taylor Micheal on? And how was he trying to scam you?

@Carrie Jones Great job in accessing this information for the BP community.

@Carrie Jones ,

He was trying to scam my brother from a forum he went on ,I will try to get the name and post it.

Yes, please. I will let the entire forum know. They guy is very clever.

@Carrie Jones you are phenomenal!  I was actually caught on the other side with a deal.  I was the lender and the "borrower" was VERY slick, he even had two attorneys helping him and an accomplice out.  I'm in the middle of litigation over $340K that was supposed to be collateralized against 6 properties.  The man fooled, myself ( a seasoned private lender), my team of partner investors with over 25yrs of experience, OUR attorney's, & OUR broker.  Its a tragedy being scammed no matter what side of the boat you find yourself on.

wow, how did you and all of your parties determine it was a scam?

I remember checking into his website and email addresses etc... when I first saw his post and thought they look odd. Plus the web address did not pan out.

The dead gave away were in the "language" ---the way these scam artists from foreign land write their posts (unlike legitimate lenders from the US) , the interest rates they offer. 

This guy will come back and ask for INSURANCE to be paid---- no such thing is required in the US to secure a loan. SCAM SCAM SCAM... Stay away.

LOL I get a ton of scammers from craigslist over the years when I list my apartments for rent. You can tell instantly by the language and the religious connections they try to use. 

It never feels good to be scammed.  I have had my brushes with not so honest people in this private lending world.  I have learned to listen to that small voice in my gut and run the other way, no matter how things appear.  Unfortunately there are those who are so talented at scamming that they can get past all our warning signals and underwriting red flags.
