JNS BLOG EXCLUSIVE: Larry Maxwell Mortgage Fraud Investigation Document Comes Loose In Course Of Jordan Controversy
The ongoing controversy in the Jordan Neighborhood caused a very interesting document to come loose about an active, ongoing police investigation into mortgage fraud...
The document concerns alleged mortgage fraud by Larry Maxwell. I first heard about Maxwell in association with a property in the Eco-Village area, 409 31st Ave. N.
That particular property is not mentioned in this document. The whole reason the document came into my hands is because Jerry Moore, former executive director of JACC, is named in the document. In the current climate of controversy (with the "New Majority" terminating Moore's employment, and the "Old Majority" saying, "You still work for JACC, and we're JACC" and Moore trying to, good heavens, shut off the utilities at the JACC HQ) information has been known to come loose, in the service of one side or another.
In the course of this struggle, somebody kicked the document toward my inbox. And now I have it. And now I'm going to share it with the whole wide world, because that's what this blog does.
Overcoming Technical Hurdles
I plan to write a thumbnail summary of the investigation document. However, in the meantime, I'm sharing the document in PDF form. Click here to go to a site which hosts the document in PDF form. Just go to the site, then click on the document with "REAPG" in the title.
Allow me to just go into one of my technical blogger things for a moment, here...it turns out you can't host a PDF document on blogspot. Oh, yes, you can host image documents quite easily, but not a PDF. So the way around that, according to a site called "The Blog Doctor," is to create a Google site to host other documents like PDFs.
I didn't come up with this on my own, but had to talk to a serious geek over the phone; Jeff's old college roommate. It was very bizarre, because the roommate calls Jeff "Bob." It has something to do with a shirt Jeff used to wear, bearing the name "Bob." Oh, yes, Jeff still possesses the shirt, actually.
I should talk. I have gym clothing I obtained in Fort Jackson, South Carolina, back in 1990, with my name written in faded Sharpie Marker: Hoff, John.
An Active Fraud Investigation
In any case, the document is detailed and fascinating. It mentions a $5,000 payment received by Mr. Jerry Moore on a mortgage deal which turned out to be fraudulent.
I have some details about the investigation from somebody who has been in contact, recently, with Cory Cardenas, a detective with the Bloomington Police Department. However, I won't be sharing those details at this time. This much I will say: if you have information about Larry Maxwell's mortgage fraud activities, be assured this is A VERY ACTIVE INVESTIGATION. And it's not just the Bloomington Police, either. Contact Detective Cardenas if you have information about Larry Maxwell.
Enjoy the very first PDF document from the website I set up at Google, just to host PDF documents for this blog. Another exciting technological leap here at Johnnynorthside.com.
