Attorney General Bondi’s Office Protects Distressed Homeowners from Mortgage Relief Scam

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office has obtained a temporary injunction and asset freeze against a company that allegedly preyed on distressed homeowners, defrauding them out of thousands of dollars in a mortgage relief scam. According to the complaint filed by the Attorney General’s Office, Edward Cherry, Lawrence Diodato, Paul Gellenbeck, Shane Frankovic, Anthony C. Pintsopoulos and their businesses charged homeowners $3,500 in up-front fees and, in return, falsely guaranteed that the defendants would “void” the homeowner’s “upside-down mortgage.” The Broward County Circuit Court today ordered the defendants to immediately cease operations and freeze their assets.

“This mortgage relief scam targeted hundreds of distressed homeowners who were already facing financial hardship,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “By obtaining a temporary injunction and asset freeze, we have stopped this company from preying on even more of Florida’s homeowners.”

An example of the allegedly misleading claims made by the company is that they would work with property owners who are currently in distress or upside down in their mortgage. The business claimed that they were the only ones that offered Florida homeowners the chance to refinance an upside down mortgage and regain equity in their homes by permanently cancelling or voiding the homeowners’ mortgages.

The temporary injunction bars the company from advertising for or providing services to Florida homeowners directly or indirectly by which the defendants claim to cancel or otherwise void previously recorded mortgages so that the mortgages are not enforceable against defendants or any other party because the mortgage assignments were not recorded.

The temporary injunction and asset freeze were obtained against: Edward Cherry, Lawrence Diodato, Paul Gellenbeck, Shane Frankovic, Anthony C. Pintsopoulos, The Fidelity Land Trust Company, LLC, The Sunshine State Land Trust Company, LLC, Florida Land Trust Services, LLC, Growth Capital Funding, LLC, August Belmont And Company, LLC, Esquire Litigation Support, LLC, Click Media Consulting, LLC doing business as Florida Home Rescue Mission and American Federal Trust, LLC, EsqLitigationSupport.Com, LLC, Zion Partners Irrevocable Trust, LLC, Zion Partners Irrev Trust, LLC, and their officers, affiliates, agents, servants, employees, attorneys and those persons in active concert or participation.

    What I want to know is where is the ‘laughing mouse’? This is just too funny. Bondi is just what Shelley has said where she will take a whole lot of credit for doing something soooo small while she let the rest of her state citizens lose millions! She HAS to show that she is doing SOMETHING. Her fishing pole isn’t long enough to catch the “big” fish and neither does she have the inclination to do so. Her purse strings are tied to the banksters so lets show the ‘dummies’ out there just how great she is! Gonna puke in my mouth.

  2. lies is all they tell says:

    bondi has aloud fraudulent foreclsoures to continuein her state. people can claim the 25 billion settlement money only if they lost their homes certaim years. what about the rest of in a fraudulent foreclsoure. we get no compensation for our paim and suffering. just continue to stress waiting for a judge to decide the fate of our homes. shelly did you write the letters yet. i will and i will send them. lets not let all that flouride and food preservatives effect us we need to keep up the fight. now we know why they put the flouride in the water and the perservatives in the food. they planned this nearly 30-40 years ago. chemical lobotomies. i feel like the movie the planet of apes is about US. we are the humans in the planet of the apes. the apes are our government and wall street. why are we not out inthe streets like savages. they are steeling our homes. yes planned 30-40 years ago. keep us doscile. guess during the 1929 depression that was jsut a test. they needed a scret weapon. to subdue us. sad

  3. Yes to all the before me comments. I will give her credit for this tiny bit. It will make those who do not know the full story, relate to something good she did and she will get credit for being a good AG by tossing this morsel of good grace, when she and the rest of the AG’s could have really done something great and good but failed and betrayed the American people. People with their heads in the sand will say Bondi protected thousands from a con game. When she could have protected millions from bigger crooks. Please get the word out and exspose her for what she is and all the crooks in our government. Then she fights for the little crumbs that are suppose to help the homeowner victims to use for her budjet.

    She included Final Judgments cancelling a Mortgage and voiding an assignment from a sucessful client.

  5. Jason Werner says:

    Amazing how Bondi twists the truth. All the numbers will show that the banksters are the ones whom are distressed, not the homeowners, whereby she’s only been aiding and abetting the banksters in their crimes.

  6. 1ofthemany says:

    of course ….they are under contract with the court first and foremost and do not forget …”ponzie” Bondie gets paid off cause she belongs to the devil.
