There are more to come.....

Wowza

They are finally doing something about the fraud and deception. Believe me, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

That's a shame . . .

My parents live in this neighborhood and it's ruined a nice neighborhood. People feel uneasy, there are empty houses, oh, and higher property taxes. Even better, one of the three the plead was an acquaintance of my parents.

Anything to turn a buck I guess.

Lone time ago

I knew these guys were doing this years ago when they were trying to get people my neighborhood involved.

It's about time

This needs to come down hard. There is so much of this going on. I'm happy that this is finally coming to a head and those people involved should be penalized

I think innocent until proven guilty. I wish the timing of our news was pushed back, and not reported until there is a conviction. I think it's unfortunate for all the families involved to have this type of news at this time of the year.

casting stones

I totally agree with bhansenjr. This is still America isnt it? Lets see if this task force, that is desparately trying to justify their own existence, can prove anything other than mail and wire fraud. The rest of you remind me of the witch hunters in "Monty Python and The Holy Grail".

What Crazy Times!

With regards to the timing of the news, that's right, this is about the worst time of the year to have this sort of thing happen. We need to remember that the indictment was unsealed by the U.S. Court, not by the news. This is a tough thing but it is something that happens all the time. I agree with this being the tip of the iceberg.

Let's Just Wait

I know for a fact that some of these guys are totally innocent. The ring leader is Bradley Kitchen. Some of these other guys were just victims and others knew what he was doing and backed out. This so-called task force is just letting everyone know that they are around.

Innocent?

These guys are by no means "totally innocent". They all knew what they were getting into. In fact, many of them have been friends for years which does not make them victims but partners and scammers together. They are all just as guilty as Bradley Kitchen.

runaway juror

lets dont hang these guys prematurely...I am anxious to see what this task force can dig up besides mail and wire charges

Hey "Innocent?"

I hope you know the guys as well as i do before you made that stupid comment. Some of these guys really didn't know the extent that Brad Kitchen was going with this. Let's just wait and find out what happens in the courts and if your a decent person i hope you'll take you premature comment back.

The Wall of Justice ***

There is no doubt that laws were broken ... remember the movie "The Firm" Mail Fraud / Wire Fraud is when you place a letter either in the U.S Mail or on a Fax Machine and send it and it contains anything that is not TRUE! The Law has teeth and the Feds will use it to make examples of these 6 persons. Federal guidelines will most likely get each of these guys a minimum of 24 to 48 months. They are now targets and the next thing will be THE IRS & TAX FRAUD

Franchise

Play in the mud and you will get dirty. No one here is innocent. None of them were even trying to hide the scam. Billboards, direct mail, etc... Is Franklin Squires next?

Winter harvest

"Some of these guys really didn't know the extent that Brad Kitchen was going with this" -- Are you saying they knew that something improper was going on but not the extent of it? The law does not look upon that situation favorably for a defendant. If they knew improper conduct was taking place and participated in it anyway then they have a serious problem.

Everybody's a Judge

It's great to see that most of the people around really know the law and have already convicted these people. Why don't you wait until they have their day in court and then you can make your stupid comments!

Annoyed

It's people like this that are to blame for the now ridiculously-inflated home prices of Utah (they and the Californians). No wonder no one can afford their homes here and Bankruptcy and foreclosures are amongst the highest in the NATION!!!

DMCB

HANG ON WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY ? THESE PEOPLE ACT LIKE THEY ARE THE COURT SYSTEM , THIS IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICA TO MANY REALLY IGNORANT PEOPLE , LET THEM HAVE THERE DAY IN COURT !

Brad Kitchen

BRAD KITCHEN IS ROTTEN. HE SCREWED OVER MY FATHER IN A BUSINESS DEAL A FEW YEARS AGO AND GOT AWAY WITH IT!

have some sympathy

It's hard to see all of the things that are being said abut these men. I personally know all of them and live in Ron and Brads neighborhood, these two men have done nothing but help the people arround them. Yes they made a mistake but all of them are sich abouut it and feel horrible, about what happend. You should get to know who they are befor you cast any stones. If david bolock wouldnt have pulled the cash flow nothing would have happend and no one would have lost money it starts and ends with him i know that for a fact. instead of pulling people down lift them up think of the families and small children that are involved. instead of throughing stones send encouagement and love. i thought that was what zion was suppose to be like.
