Everything You Need to Know About Wall Street, in One Brief Tale

If there was ever a news story that crystalized the moral dementia of modern Wall Street in one little vignette, this is it.

Newspapers in Colorado today are reporting that the elegant Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado, will be closed to the public from today through Monday at noon.

Why? Because some local squire has apparently decided to rent out all 94 rooms of the hotel for three-plus days for his daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.

The hotel’s general manager, Tony DiLucia, would say only that the party was being thrown by a “nice family,” but newspapers are now reporting that the Daddy of the lucky little gal is one Jeffrey Verschleiser, currently an executive with Goldman, Sachs.

At first, I couldn’t remember where I knew that name from. But then I looked it up and saw an explosive Atlantic magazine story, published last year, called, “E-mails Suggest Bear Stearns Cheated Clients Out Of Millions.” And then I remembered that piece, and it hit me: Jeffrey Verschleiser is one of the biggest assholes in the entire world!

Check out the rest here…

    One question : How can an accident of forgery of my name to a bill of sale happen if I never signed it.

    HSBC says they own my home by producing a Forged bill of Sale from the one that borrowed money not from them but from Fannie Mae and now claim the own my home.

    The even went so far as to get a QUIT CLAIM from Fannie Mae signed 16 months after a foreclosure sale of my home which they bought back (*still haven’t seen a Receipt of Certified funds to pay some 30,000 more than they say the loan was for in the first place. ** Note Georgia is a Non Judicial state and doesn’t except a Credit bit at Auction it must be paid for at that time with Certified Cashier Checks or Cash. Where the almost $400,000 dollar receipt of their payment and why in earth would they pay more at a foreclosure sale in this day of great low priced deals More of their investors money Nah that would be un heard of HUH.
    So once again why would Fannie Mae Quit Claim a $400,000 property of Taxpayers dollars for $10.00 to the Bank just to save their asses in a Lawsuit. The Attorney that represents the Bank also represents the FNMA Fannie Mae a conflict of interest if the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing . There is so much more fraudulent Affidavits of Closing attorney with her singing as Notary with a Ghost witness that was not at the closing (*her Boy friend that appeared out of the blue but never arrived at my home with her or anyone else. Two live witness signed affidavits to say she was lying . Even more .The Day of trial the Judge then ordered Mediation to settle issues . How can that be done if “I don’t owe them any money on my home since the ?Car (my home could not be involved in the deal since it neve left the garage) I didn’t sign any bill of sale and never borrowed a dime from anyone on what they now say they own.

    amazing If you read this please call me for a hair raising or is that a HELL Raising of a Deal.

  2. Mr Verschleiser should rent the 94 rooms to at least 94 families that lost their homes thanks to his triple massive fraud

    I saw a show on the history channel about the Roman empire….they used to put people inside of a bull that looks just like that bull in the picture….and put a fire under the bull and cook the person inside of it to death..that could be a fair and just punishment for the criminals and traitors to America..

    Nasty thieves!!!!
    while people live in the cold and in the streets because of them this is outrageous, praying for justice every day I am, maybe OWS needs to pay a visit in-force wouldn’t that be nice to show the world what is still going down in disgusting form. I hate to say this but I hope the little party gets riddled with discontent and uprising and hopefully the people will be stating how disgusting this is!!!! I am physically ill at the moment by this blatant show of stolen wealth and this is what we have all been feeling for years now, I am repulsed unbelief, a blatant disregard for the fellow man. Evil and demonic actions I hope ALL see it for what it is. EVIL idiots, the tide will change it will change for the better.
