Strawbuyers and the LLC game -


Straw buyers are paid to quickly pick up the property and then it is quickly transferred to an LLC.  In some cases, especially on the east side, straw buyers were paid to take out an inflated subprime mortgage on the home and then to intentionally foreclose. 

On the west side, Jack Peterson bought home after home on Archwood Ave.  Then, defaulted on the mortgage and walked with some properties picked up by Aurora LLC then transferred to Brian Bobula* to Angel Bobula.  Somehow, Jack Peterson ended up "purchasing" a home on Holmden in the "Model Block" Tremont neighborhood...from HUD.

Look, especially at how the taxes are NOT paid on these flipped properties:  Also on my street--Beachwood landlord Lucky Ogor rented Section 8 properties for years and continued to collect rent, while never paying taxes on his properties. 

Believe me, our county treasurer knew of these loopholes for years and this special favor was conveniently overlooked at tax collection time.  I am hoping CMHA's George Phillips will sing on the HUD machine:  Lucky Ogor recently transferred his property to IKAN Associates, Inc. 

Consider these two major LOOPHOLES: Our former county treasurer Jim Rokakis and his buddy Gus Frangos had enough time to legislate the exclusive sale of tax liens to Plymouth Park and the creation of the unregulated quasi-government agency the "Land Bank,"  but OVERLOOKED 1.) the fact that properties in Ohio can transfer title without paying off existing tax liens and 2.) that landlords can continue to collect federal HUD Section 8 Voucher monies, while in tax foreclosure???



Tony Viola and the racket



Richard speaks with a former real estate broker recently released from federal prison who blows the whistle on corrupt state and federal prosecutors who suppressed exculpatory evidence in his case.

GUEST: Tony Viola is a former real estate broker who was indicted three times and tried twice on identical charges by a multi-jurisdictional mortgage fraud task force. Prosecutors alleged Tony duped banks like JP Morgan into making 'no money down' mortgage loans that the bank didn't permit. Tony was convicted in federal court and sentenced to 12 1/2 years in jail. But from jail, and without an attorney, he proved his innocence at a second trial on the same charges using evidence the Justice Department hid before the first trial. Prosecutors possessed evidence proving Tony's innocence all along but never provided it to the defence.

It is inconceivable to me that Tony Viola was set up to take the fall for mortgage fraud on east side and served 10 years while it is still happening and the mastermind of mortgage fraud, Gus Frangos, still helms the Cuyahoga County Land Bank and through his tentacles at City Hall - affects tax abatement, housing prices and development dollars.

Sam Allard I understand that the story is too complicated for the average understanding. But, at very least - look at how the prosecution operated in this case. A woman set to testify in Tony Viola's defense dies the day before the trail of "alcohol poisoning" and it doesn't raise a red flag about the court system here?

From Lily Miller's research:

Meanwhile, Gus Frangos - President of the County Land Bank - has engaged in very suspicious activity regarding real estate in Cuyahoga County.  It is my opinion that Gus Frangos has engaged in MORTGAGE FRAUD.

Gus Frangos has purchased property in his own name, transferred the property into numerous self-created LLCs, received large sums of money via mortgages, failed to pay his property taxes, collected rent money, and then he failed to pay the mortgage.    I believe that Gus Frangos had no intention of ever paying the mortgage and hid the property behind the self-created LLC while collecting rent money.

Gus Frangos has  several foreclosure cases filed against him and his self-created LLCs.   One property tax foreclosure regarding property located at 1158 East 61st Street and owned by Gus Frangos' self-created LLC ( 1158 East 61 LLC) was recently foreclosed upon and will soon go to sheriff foreclosure sale.

It is interesting to note that the mortgage in the amount of $175,000 (documented below) was never released by National City Bank.  I searched high and low to find the mortgage release relative to this property and came up empty handed.  National City Bank was also served a copy of the foreclosure decision- which backs up my research since National City was served court documents- meaning they have an interest in this property- the loan was NOT repaid:

Dan Kasaris aka Rydarowicz- is a Youngstown mobster

 Danny knows how to play the name game just like Frangos' good ole boy George Michael Riley:


From Tony Viola on FB

Senior Assistant Ohio Attorney General Dan Kasaris sent erotic emails describing “hand jobs we got from co-workers” and bragged about “banging a female co-worker … in the car,” from his private email account affixed with his official signature as a prosecutor. These emails, from DanielJKasaris [at] yahoo [dot] com, were sent to government witness Kathryn Clover, who testified in dozens of criminal cases and grand jury proceedings, and who had a years-long sexual relationship with Prosecutor Kasaris. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Bennett stated in court filings that Clover committed perjury, triggering a legal obligation to correct or withdraw false testimony. Instead, Kasaris and Bennett did the opposite – and continued utilizing her fabricated evidence to secure indictments and convictions while also providing Clover with undisclosed financial benefits, cash payments and scholarships, while fighting for years to prevent the release of these emails.
The FreeTonyViola.com investigative team has argued that emails between a prosecutor and government witness constitute public records, especially since taxpayer funds were utilized to pay Ms. Clover. According to the Ohio Sunshine Law, government-related emails – particularly those containing official government signatures – are considered public records, even if they were sent from a private account. Nevertheless, the Attorney General’s Office and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office have refused to search this Yahoo e mailbox for communications between a prosecutor and a government witness. Now, however, the Ohio Court of Claims is deciding whether ALL of the Kasaris-Clover e mails in question must be made public, and whether the Ohio Attorney General and other government agencies are required to search this and other Kasaris accounts for these lewd emails, Ohio Court of Claims Case # 2020-00477-PQ.
“Dozens of prosecutors are aware that Dan Kasaris had a long-term romantic relationship with the government’s lead witness in criminal trials prosecuted by Kasaris,” said Tony Viola. “Still, no one in the Attorney General’s Office or the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cleveland will do the right thing. While pretending to be an upstanding family man, Dan Kasaris used government funds to take Clover to baseball games, bars, restaurants and to his own apartment for sexual rendezvous. At the same time, many American citizens were locked in jail cells based on Clover’s false testimony. We are hoping the Ohio Court of Claims will order the release of all Kasaris-Clover emails, and that every single criminal case where Clover testified will re-opened without further delay.”
