Head of Anti-Money Laundering Agency Tells Senate Hearing He Hasn’t Read the Times Bombshell on Trump, Kushner and Deutsche Bank

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: May 22, 2019 ~

Kenneth Blanco, Director of FinCEN

Reading the New York Times is apparently now seen as being disloyal to the President of the United States if you’re a Federal employee. Just holding the newspaper in one’s hands might be enough to become an early pensioner in the Trump administration. Yesterday it became crystal clear at a Senate Banking hearing just how terrified people are in the Federal government of getting on the wrong side of the President and ending up being publicly bashed on his Twitter page.

The Senate Banking hearing on Tuesday was called to get answers from the witness panel on how to combat money laundering in the United States by shell companies that keep their real owners a secret. But it quickly became a hearing also about the bombshell report from the New York Times on Sunday. That article, by David Enrich, describes how a Deutsche Bank whistleblower, Tammy McFadden, and four of her colleagues had their efforts blocked by the bank when they tried to file suspicious activity reports on bank accounts affiliated with Jared Kushner and Donald Trump. Those reports should have gone to the Federal agency that oversees potential money laundering activity, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network or FinCEN, but they were quashed by a unit of the bank that manages money for the super wealthy.

The Director of FinCEN, Kenneth Blanco, was on the witness panel for the hearing. When Blanco was asked by Senator Bob Menendez if he had read the article in the New York Times, Blanco said that he had not, adding that he had simply been “briefed” on it. This statement appeared to be little more than an effort to appease the anger of Trump toward the New York Times (the President regularly calls it “Fake News”) since it would be negligence on the part of the Director of FinCEN not to read a whistleblower’s account of what went on inside Deutsche Bank – especially given Deutsche Bank’s 2017 fine of $630 million for laundering $10 billion out of Russia.

Blanco also refused to answer any questions as to whether he was or was not opening an investigation as a result of the report in the Times. That elicited a stern statement to Blanco from Senator Chris Van Hollen, who told him that “If FinCen has not already been in touch with that whistleblower, in my view, that’s gross negligence.”

Senator Sherrod Brown

Senator Sherrod Brown, the ranking member of the Committee, also addressed the issue in his opening statement, commenting as follows:

“This weekend we got a reminder of how important these issues are, courtesy of reporting by The New York Times that money laundering specialists working for Deutsche Bank had repeatedly recommended the filing of suspicious activity reports on transactions by President Trump’s and Jared Kushner’s organizations, including transactions with actors overseas.

“But those experts were over-ruled by senior Private Wealth Division officials. Even state regulators or House Financial Services Committee subpoenas to Deutsche Bank can’t get at suspicious activity reports that are never filed – that are effectively quashed within the bank and never conveyed to the experts at FinCEN in the Treasury Department and the financial watchdogs that are supposed to assess these transactions.

“And compliance officials described a pattern at Deutsche of efforts like that to reject SAR filings for lucrative clients. We need to get to the bottom of what happened here. Everyone has to follow anti-money laundering laws and rules – you don’t get an exemption if you have a rich and powerful client. And we have to hold financial institutions accountable if they break the rules. I’ve written to Deutsche Bank’s CEO making that clear, and demanding answers.”

Senator Chris Van Hollen

Brown and Van Hollen earlier had released a letter they had sent to Christian Sewing, the CEO of Deutsche Bank, on the matter of the report in the Times. Among the numerous questions it demanded answers to was this: “Who were the Private Wealth Management or other bank decision makers involved in these decisions?”

David Enrich, the author of the most recent article at the New York Times, had written an article in March of this year identifying Rosemary Vrablic as the Private Banker at Deutsche Bank to both Trump and Kushner. She is considered one of the most powerful Private Bankers in New York City. Clearly, the Senators wanted to know if a Private Banker could kill a Federally-mandated suspicious activity report for a politically-connected client.

The Trump bullying effect appears to be causing yet another disfigurement of government: Members of Congress seem to be afraid to show up and do their job at the Congressional Committees on which they sit out of fear of saying something that will earn the wrath of the President.

Money laundering through global banks, including those on Wall Street, is one of the greatest threats to the national security of the United States since it can be used to finance all sorts of illicit activity from bribes to public officials, drug dealing, terrorist financing and the like. Despite the critical nature of this hearing on Tuesday, 11 of the 12 Republican members who sit on the Senate Banking panel didn’t show up for the hearing. Senator Mike Crapo, the Republican Chairman of the Committee, and Senator Patrick Toomey, were the only two Republicans to attend. The following Republican Senators who sit on the Committee were missing in action: Richard Shelby, Tim Scott, Ben Sasse, Tom Cotton, Mike Rounds, David Purdue, Thom Tillis, John Kennedy, Martha McSally, Jerry Moran and Kevin Cramer.

That lack of turnout by Republicans contrasted against the Democratic Senators on the Committee who did show up to ask engaging questions of the panel’s witnesses: Sherrod Brown, Jack Reed, Mark Warner, Chris Van Hollen, Doug Jones and Kyrsten Sinema.

The other two witnesses who testified at Tuesday’s hearing were Steven D’Antuono, Section Chief, Financial Crimes Section of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Grovetta Gardineer, Senior Deputy Comptroller for Bank Supervision Policy at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. (Their testimony is available here and here, respectively.)

When the history books finally look back on this era from an enlightened perspective, they will surely expend an enormous amount of ink examining how so few within the Republican Party had the courage and love of their country to speak out when faced with an insurmountable mountain of evidence of corruption.





Ms. McFadden said she had told her superiors that dozens of politically exposed clients of the private-banking division, including Mr. Trump and members of his family, were not receiving that added attention.

Her superiors told her to stop raising questions, according to Ms. McFadden and the two former managers.

After taking her complaint to the human resources department, Ms. McFadden was transferred to another division. She was terminated in April 2018. The bank told her that she was not processing enough transactions.

There’s always a Florida connection — More from NYT: “[Tammy] McFadden, a longtime anti-money laundering specialist in Deutsche Bank’s Jacksonville office, said she had reviewed the transactions and found that money had moved from Kushner Companies to Russian individuals. … On two palm-tree-lined campuses in Jacksonville, Deutsche Bank has thousands of employees who vet customers and transactions.  HER and Six current and former bank employees there said the operations were deeply troubled.”

The New York Times interviewed several current and former employees of Deutsche Bank who specialize in tracking money laundering and other illegal activity. What they learned was explosive: On several occasions in 2016 and 2017 — even after Trump took office — accounts involving Trump and Kushner triggered the bank’s anti-money laundering software.

A  MESSAGE  TO  Nelson &  Mullins   and  Baker  Donelson



James R. Sullivan, Asst. U. S. Atty., Los Angeles, Cal., argued, for defendant/appellee; Andrea Sheridan Ordin, U. S. Atty., Los Angeles, Cal.,…


On July 27, 1979, appellant John Lewis was injured by a vehicle owned and operated by the Los Angeles branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Lewis brought this action in district court alleging jurisdiction under the Federal Tort Claims Act (the Act), 28 U.S.C. § 1346(b). The United States moved to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The district court dismissed, holding that the Federal Reserve Bank is not a federal agency within the meaning of the Act and that the court therefore lacked subject matter jurisdiction. We affirm.


In enacting the Federal Tort Claims Act, Congress provided a limited waiver of the sovereign immunity of the United States for certain torts of federal employees. United States v. Orleans, 425 U.S. 807, 813, 96 S.Ct. 1971, 1975, 48 L.Ed.2d 390 (1976). Specifically, the Act creates liability for injuries “caused by the negligent or wrongful act or omission” of an employee of any federal agency acting within the scope of his office or employment. 28 U.S.C. §§ 1346(b), 2671. “Federal agency” is defined as:

3the executive departments, the military departments, independent establishments of the United States, and corporations acting primarily as instrumentalities of the United States, but does not include any contractors with the United States.


28 U.S.C. § 2671. The liability of the United States for the negligence of a Federal Reserve Bank employee depends, therefore, on whether the Bank is a federal agency under § 2671.


There are no sharp criteria for determining whether an entity is a federal agency within the meaning of the Act, but the critical factor is the existence of federal government control over the “detailed physical performance” and “day to day operation” of that entity. United States v. Orleans, 425 U.S. 807, 814, 96 S.Ct. 1971, 1975, 48 L.Ed.2d 390 (1976), Logue v. United States, 412 U.S. 521, 528, 93 S.Ct. 2215, 2219, 37 L.Ed.2d 121 (1973). Other factors courts have considered include whether the entity is an independent corporation, Pearl v. United States, 230 F.2d 243 (10th Cir. 1956), Freeling v. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, 221 F.Supp. 955 (W.D.Okla.1962), aff’d per curiam, 326 F.2d 971 (10th Cir. 1963), whether the government is involved in the entity’s finances. Goddard v. District of Columbia Redevelopment Land Agency, 287 F.2d 343, 345 (D.C.Cir.1961), cert. denied, 366 U.S. 910, 81 S.Ct. 1085, 6 L.Ed.2d 235 (1961), Freeling v. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, 221 F.Supp. 955, and whether the mission of the entity furthers the policy of the United States, Goddard v. District of Columbia Redevelopment Land Agency, 287 F.2d at 345. Examining the organization and function of the Federal Reserve Banks, and applying the relevant factors, we conclude that the Reserve Banks are not federal instrumentalities for purposes of the FTCA, but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.


Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region. The stockholding commercial banks elect two thirds of each Bank’s nine member board of directors. The remaining three directors are appointed by the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board regulates the Reserve Banks, but direct supervision and control of each Bank is exercised by its board of directors. 12 U.S.C. § 301. The directors enact by-laws regulating the manner of conducting general Bank business, 12 U.S.C. § 341, and appoint officers to implement and supervise daily Bank activities. These activities include collecting and clearing checks, making advances to private and commercial entities, holding reserves for member banks, discounting the notes of member banks, and buying and selling securities on the open market. See 12 U.S.C. §§ 341-361.


Each Bank is statutorily empowered to conduct these activities without day to day direction from the federal government. Thus, for example, the interest rates on advances to member banks, individuals, partnerships, and corporations are set by each Reserve Bank and their decisions regarding the purchase and sale of securities are likewise independently made.

Hello Houston FBI: Robert L. Vickers, W.G. Horne III, WB Etheridge, Thomas Eikel, Donald Clesson, Harreal Blackshear, Western Bank, Eagle Title Company Conroe, The First American Title Insurance Company, Nelda Luce Radabaugh Blair, Lucey Proctor, William Pack and Hundreds of Thousands even MILLIONS of Americans NOW UNDERSTAND how Houston and Dallas Banks were looted with the assistance of Title Insurance Companies like Hope and Mayes of Conroe Represented. Former US Attorney Toney Canales certainly understands as does Marcus Winberry, Jimmie C Dozier, Jimmie Edwards, Mark White, Jim Mattox, Dan Morales and you know the Commissioners Court of Montgomery County, Bill and Hillary Clinton understand AS DOES Quapaw Title and Ken Starr, oh I almost forgot Katheryn Woolford formerly with RTC / FDIC / FLSIC. now with USAID and BEARING POINT.

” Peddling Texas swampland is just one of the dirty jobs facing the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC), the U.S. agency that opened shop in early August to administer the coup de grace to sick thrifts. The mop-up has landed federal regulators in the same muck that mired the S&L industry: Thousands of white-elephant properties, most located in markets as soft as quicksand. ”

Greetings Arizona and Cochise County:

For a little background first I cut and paste an except from your site:


Every Arizona County and hundreds of thousands of trusting land purchasers were victimized by the rampant land scams of the 1960’s.””

My name is Judson Witham and as you may know I have been working on unraveling the MASSIVE land fruads and Bank – S&L lootings in Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, California, New Mexico, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Utah and even ARIZONA to Hawaii just to name a few States. Oooops I forgot to mention ARKANSAS land of the Madison S&L Job traceable to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

You may find it interesting so I refer you to these links and facts: When the Lincoln Savings and Loan Mess of Charles Cheating was abstracted and researched by FSLIC and RTC investigators it was discovered that he had engaged in widespread speculative Dirt Road and Paper Subdivision activities.

FACT : In taking over Charles Keating’s notorious Lincoln Savings & Loan, the RTC acquired some $1 billion worth of property, including plots for 17 planned communities in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Louisiana. One of them is the 20,000-acre Estrella Project in the desert 20 miles southwest of Phoenix. Although Lincoln invested $200 million in preparatory work, only three homesites have been sold. !! That $200 Million was why a PAPER SUBDIVSION can be so LUCRATIVE.

I would kindly ask that any information or records your Office or that Cochise County, AZ and including the same catelgories of information that The State of Arizona reveal and produce the same records and information, that is responsive to my request for information. I ask that it all be catalogged, listed and it’s existance revealed in accordance with Arizona Open Records or Freedom Of Information Laws.

Dreams of paradise have been shattered for scores of Montgomery County landowners who face a seemingly never-ending struggle to obtain various public services.

“You really feel like you’re being abused,” said Tommy Gage.

Gage moved to a southwest Montgomery County subdivision four years ago only to find the roads there so bad that school buses were not allowed on them.

Vicki Burleigh, who lives at a mobile home subdivision in the southeast part of the county, said many residents have moved out because of poor roads, bad drainage, troublesome septic tank systems and uncaring neighbors who litter their property with junk.

“My husband doesn’t want to leave,” Burleigh said. “We had to clear the land and put in a lot of work out here. But I’d almost rather take a loss and start over somewhere else than get this place paid for in a few years and be living in a slum.”

Donna Meek, one of Burleigh’s neighbors in Pinewood Village, said her family’s move five years ago was part of a dream to get “farther out and have some room to breathe.”

“We love it out here,” Meek said. “We don’t want to move, but we may be forced to.”

Landowners with similar problems voice their complaints at almost every meeting of the Montgomery County Commissioners Court.

“We all pay county taxes and yet the county won’t do anything to keep the roads from tearing up my truck,” Gage contended.

But it appears the county’s attitude is changing.

Officials say the problems many of the landowners describe are the result of unscrupulous developers who never recorded plans for their subdivisions with the county.

“They would buy up some acreage, mark off a road, grade it and put a little gravel on it and say the county will take care of it,” said Precinct 1 Commissioner Oliver Hance. County Judge Jimmie C. Edwards III described such developers as “shysters who came in, did the deal, made some money and hooked it.”

By failing to have the development recorded, developers avoided requirements in effect since 1967 that stipulate, among other things, how roads should be built, what type of drainage studies should be done and when septic tanks are allowed.

Officials contend they have no authority to make improvements in unrecorded subdivisions where county building specifications have been ignored. They also concede there are more than 600 such subdivisions in the county.

“Can you believe that number?” asked the county’s new health director, Dr. Sydney Garrett.

He said drainage, sewage and septic tank problems can generate health hazards that should be addressed in any proposed remedy.

The focus of the county’s initial response will be poor roads, since officials said that is the problem most often identified by landowners.

Gage and other landowners said the roads have deteriorated despite their efforts to maintain them.

“My brother and I had a tractor and we tried to keep the roads up as best we could until times got hard and we had to sell the tractor,” said Johnny Thibodeaux, who lives in an unrecorded subdivision north of Splendora. “But grading the road doesn’t take care of the holes or clean out the ditches.”

If the roads are bad enough, buses, postal officials and at times garbage haulers will not come down them, landowners said.

“We’re on our fourth garbage hauler,” said Burleigh. “I assume they quit coming because of the roads . . . I imagine one of the reasons family doesn’t come visit anymore is because the roads are so bad.” Hance said landowners are perplexed when they learn the county can’t improve their substandard roads, noting that commissioners often have yielded to political pressure and provided such improvements.

“Commissioners did that in the past when the county had 40,000 people,” observed Precinct 2 Commissioner Carol Shelton. “But now, the county has grown so much and funding is so limited, you don’t see it anymore.”

Shelton said commissioners do not have enough money to keep existing county roads in proper shape. Adding improvement and maintenance costs on roads from unrecorded subdivisions would “penalize the rest of the citizens for the benefit of these few taxpayers,” Shelton said.

Others contend the county simply does not have enough money to improve all of the roads in unrecorded subdivisions, now estimated to cover some 450 miles.

Edwards said he is most interested in finding those developers “who misled their investors” by telling them roads and other facilities would be upgraded.

He contended the worst violations occurred in the 1960s and 1970s when the area economy was robust and land was cheap.

W.B. Etheridge, a real estate attorney in Conroe who has developed small subdivisions, said some landowners were victimized during those years by high- pressure salespeople who “made promises but never followed up on them.”

“That should never happen,” Etheridge said.

He and other developers contended, however, that in recent years, subdivision regulations have been honored.

It is primarily moderate-income families that were victimized by developers who never recorded their subdivisions, officials reported. They say solutions will take a long time to accomplish.

Inadequately Developed Issues

The trial attorney for Du ROI stated that the corporation was R.V. King’s and that King owned its stock. The defendant’s attorney stated that there were 500 unrecorded subdivisions in Montgomery County and that people who lived in some of these unrecorded subdivisions wanted better roads and maintenance.

Du ROI urged that its rights had been violated, arguing that it had been singled out for unfair treatment. We think these issues were not adequately developed. They may be important as equitable defenses since the county sought equitable relief. The doctrine of balancing the equities and the doctrine of clean hands may become relevant. There was more than a scintilla of evidence to show that the father of a county-wide elected official was alleged to have developed an unrecorded subdivision as well as the husband of the secretary of the elected official. Further, reviewing the whole posture of the case, we perceive that the City of Conroe was a proper party to the litigation and may well have been a necessary party. R.V. King may be a necessary party also.

An order had been entered in this appeal concerning the problem of overburdening this record. That order was improvidently granted. It is set aside. We have examined the entire record.

$14 million frozen in lawsuit alleging mortgage fraud

A federal judge here Friday agreed to freeze up to $14 million in South Texas bank deposits after a New York lender alleged that officials of five companies in Corpus Christi and Houston , including two lawyers, engaged in mortgage fraud.

A lawsuit by Pioneer Commercial Funding Corp. says the defendants created bogus documents to obtain funds from Pioneer, ostensibly to be reloaned to buyers of homes in Houston ‘s Runningbrook subdivision and elsewhere. Instead, it says, the money was stolen.

The lawsuit accuses the defendants of racketeering, which allows the court to award triple damages if proven. Pioneer is seeking $14 million in actual damages and $42 million in punitive damages.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt signed an order taking control of the deposits in two accounts held in the Bank of Robstown by Mortgage CreditCorp Inc. of Corpus Christi .

Pioneer’s attorney Steven Zager said he does not know how much money is in the accounts. He said Pioneer will go after any funds held by any of the defendants, but knows only of the two accounts in Robstown.

The list of 19 defendants is headed by William J. Cartwright Sr. of Corpus Christi , named as president and majority owner of Mortgage CreditCorp and two other companies there, The Cartwright Group Inc. and First State Investors Inc.

Other defendants in Corpus Christi are his sons, William Jr. and Robert H. Cartwright, and Veronica J. Cartwright, who are officers and stockholders in the three companies; Rosmare Saldivar and Melvin Smoots, officers of Mortgage CreditCorp and The Cartwright Group Inc.; William H. Whittle, an attorney and stockholder in Mortgage CreditCorp; and James P. Page. The companies are also defendants.

The Houston defendants are John S. Pipkin, an officer and majority stockholder in Beau-Bay Development Corp. here; his brother Roger W. Pipkin III and his son Roger W. Pipkin IV, both officers and stockholders in the company; and three persons employed by C&P Realty here, attorney Robert L. Vickers, real estate appraiser Steven F. Thomae and Kelly Alan Wohlers.

Pioneer, a “warehouse lender,” advances funds to mortgage companies, which lend them in turn to home buyers. To obtain funds, a mortgage company sends Pioneer a package that includes the home buyer’s credit application, promissory note, deed of trust, property appraisal, title policy commitment and proof of insurance.

The lawsuit says Pioneer agreed to provide Mortgage CreditCorp up to $35 million for such loans, but sometime in 1989, the defendants began creating packages including “fictitious deeds of trust, counterfeit title commitments, fraudulent credit applications, phony appraisals and bogus insurance policies.’ The lawsuit says William J. Cartwright Sr. and others conspired to buy more than 90 vacant lots, most of them in Runningbrook, at foreclosure sales at bargain prices, then transferred the titles to Beau-Bay and C&P Realty.

Fraudulent packages for a number of fictitious buyers were prepared by other defendants, who presented them to Pioneer.

“Neither the houses nor the underlying mortgage transactions actually existed,” the lawsuit says. It says Pioneer lost at least $14 million as a result.

Zager said that attorney Whittle’s signature is on the deeds of trust and that attorney Vickers’ is on the title policy commitments.

The latter were on Stewart Title letterhead, but a Stewart official said the company did not provide them, Zager said. The title tracking numbers are assigned to Associated Title, but that company also disclaimed them, Zager said.

An affidavit made Tuesday by Wohlers’ fiancee, Leslie Ann Lehman, says she signed false loan documents for four homes at his request after he told her “it was all right.’ “I have never seen the property, did not purchase the property and these documents are false,” her affidavit says.

Page said he worked for Mortgage Credit for about six months and “warehoused mortgage loans with Pioneer,” but knows nothing about the alleged scheme. John S. Pipkin declined to comment until he sees the lawsuit, as did former U.S. Attorney Tony Canales of Corpus Christi, who represents The Cartwright Group. The other defendants could not be reached for comment.

Funds at more banks frozen in fraud case

A federal judge here Thursday froze accounts in four more banks at the request of attorneys in a lawsuit alleging a $14 million mortgage fraud scheme by companies and at least two lawyers in Houston and Corpus Christi .

U.S. District Judge Norman Black issued sealed orders to freeze defendants’ accounts in Memorial Bank and Texas Guaranty National Bank in Houston , Mason Road Bank in Katy and First National Bank Gulfway in Corpus Christi .

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt last Friday authorized freezing two accounts in the Bank of Robstown near Corpus Christi on request of the plaintiff, Pioneer Commercial Funding Corp., a New York “warehouse lender” that advances money to mortgage companies for home loans.

The defendants allegedly prepared fraudulent loan application packages involving vacant lots in Houston ‘s Runningbrook subdivision and elsewhere, claiming they had 20-year-old homes on them.

Pioneer’s attorney, Steve Zager, said Thursday’s orders were sought from Black because Hoyt, whose court has the case, was out of town.

The defendant companies allegedly obtained loans from Pioneer by submitting bogus documents, including credit applications, promissory notes, deeds of trust, property appraisals, title policy commitments and proof of insurance. At least three potential witnesses have said they falsified such documents for a small fee or at a boyfriend’s request, Zager said.

The list of 19 defendants is headed by William J. Cartwright Sr. of Corpus Christi , named in the lawsuit as president and majority owner of Mortgage CreditCorp and two other companies there, The Cartwright Group Inc. and First State Investors Inc.

Other defendants from Corpus Christi are Cartwright’s sons, William Jr. and Robert H. Cartwright, and Veronica J. Cartwright, who are officers and stockholders in the three companies; Rosmare Saldivar and Melvin Smoots, officers of Mortgage CreditCorp and The Cartwright Group Inc.; William H. Whittle, an attorney and stockholder in Mortgage CreditCorp; and James P. Page. The companies are also defendants.

The Houston defendants are John S. Pipkin, an officer and majority stockholder in Beau-Bay Development Corp. here; his brother Roger W. Pipkin III and his son Roger W. Pipkin IV, both officers and stockholders in the company; and three persons employed by C&P Realty here, attorney Robert L. Vickers, real estate appraiser Steven F. Thomae and Kelly Alan Wohlers.

The lawsuit accuses the defendants of racketeering, which allows the court to award triple damages if proven. Pioneer is seeking $14 million in actual damages and $42 million in punitive damages.

Zager said federal marshals served Black’s freeze orders Thursday after wire transfers were traced to the Houston area accounts from the Robstown accounts of Mortgage CreditCorp, which Hoyt had frozen. The latter turned out to contain about $300,000. Up to $14 million may be frozen if found.

Zager said the Mason Road account here is in the name of Vickers, who denies any connection with it. Zager said another attorney here withdrew about $10,000 from the account on Wednesday, emptying it.

Zager said Vickers, 58, was sentenced to five years in prison on Oct. 12, 1988, in Arizona for money laundering and conducting an illegal enterprise.

Investigator Clyde Wilson said he reached Vickers by phone in a Yuma , Ariz. , prison, and Vickers told him his name is being used by others, but he is not involved in the scheme. Zager said Vickers’signature, provided by his wife here, does not match those on the allegedly bogus documents.

Zager said Robert Cartwright was sentenced in 1979 to 12 years in prison for misapplying funds, conspiracy and making false loan applications, but has been released.

Zager said First State Investors has accounts at Gulfway and Mason Road banks; C&P Realty has accounts at Gulfway , Texas Guaranty and Memorial; and Wohlers’ company, Inland Towing and Transportation, has accounts at Memorial.

For sale by owner: junk real estate
US News & World Report, Dec 11, 1989 by Monroe W. Karmin

For the grab bag of less luxurious listings that constitute the bulk of the RTC portfolio – foreclosed homes, motels, shopping malls, office and apartment buildings, industrial parks and vacant land – the market seems even more forbidding. Still, plucky sales agents are rising to the challenge. “The roof dips a tudge on one side, the porch has a hole in it and there are termites,” admits Kat Woolford, who is hawking a $7,500, two-bedroom shack on a third of an acre in Tomball, Tex., north of Houston. “But it’s a cute hideaway.”

Arizona real estate for sale: For sale by owner: junk real estate

For sale by owner: Junk real estate

Just as Americans have grown used to the idea of junk bonds, a new financial bugaboo looms on the horizon: Junk real estate. Set in desirable communities, many of the properties now being jettisoned by insolvent savings and loan institutions seem to be paradise. But like the 9-acre swath of Long Island beachfront off the Texas Gulf Coast, spectacular vistas rarely live up to a developer’s dreams. Over half of the $400,000 Laguna Madre parcel lies underwater. There is no sewer hookup and no sea wall, and there are high fees to maintain a private bridge that connects the island with Port Isabel on the mainland. “It could all go underwater in a hurricane,” admits a spokesman for La Hacienda Savings Association in San Antonio, which holds the property.

Peddling Texas swampland is just one of the dirty jobs facing the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC), the U.S. agency that opened shop in early August to administer the coup de grace to sick thrifts. The mop-up has landed federal regulators in the same muck that mired the S&L industry: Thousands of white-elephant properties, most located in markets as soft as quicksand. The collection includes such exotica as a $900,000 equestrian center (reduced from $1.5 million) north of San Antonio, the $25 million StarPass golf-course community in Tucson, a historic bank building in Houston, a boarded-up lumberyard surrounded by wetlands near Tampa, Fla., 77 condominium units on the tip of Long Island, N.Y., and a 55 percent stake in the opulent $200 million Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. All told, RTC officials estimate they now must dispose of close to $16 billion worth of real estate currently on the books of 268 failed thrifts in 33 states.

Fool’s gold. Most of the properties will fetch pennies on the dollar’s worth of book value – if they can be unloaded at all. The 6-acre McCune Mansion in Paradise Valley outside of Phoenix is typical of the RTC’s daunting task. Built in the 1960s by oil tycoon Walker McCune for his young bride, the 53,000-square- foot house boasts numerous kitchens, a ballroom with an $80,000 chandelier, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and ice-skating rink, a theater, a darkroom, its own beauty salon, a 14-car garage and a guest house. Mrs. McCune refused to move in, and the place saw a succession of owners, most recently Gordon Hall, cofounder of the Nautilus fitness company. RTC inherited the property when it took over the bankrupt Southwest Savings & Loan Association earlier this year. “There’s not a great market for 53,000-square- foot houses,” says Jack Lake, the RTC agent charged with finding a buyer.

For the grab bag of less luxurious listings that constitute the bulk of the RTC portfolio – foreclosed homes, motels, shopping malls, office and apartment buildings, industrial parks and vacant land – the market seems even more forbidding. Still, plucky sales agents are rising to the challenge. “The roof dips a tudge on one side, the porch has a hole in it and there are termites,” admits Kat Woolford, who is hawking a $7,500, two-bedroom shack on a third of an acre in Tomball, Tex., north of Houston. “But it’s a cute hideaway.”

The heat is on for the RTC to speed up its fire sale. The agency has three years to gather up all the nation’s ailing S&L’s and seven years to dispose of acquired properties. Ideally, the feds would like to get rid of their sick thrifts as whole entities, bad real-estate investments and all. But most investors are interested only in the best assets, saddling the government with the white elephants. The longer the RTC hangs on to the losers, the higher the taxpayers’ tab, already estimated at $166 billion.

But the disposal process is being hindered by the fact that no one knows how much sour real estate the RTC will have to offer. An initial inventory of properties currently under its wing will not be completed until the end of this month. And that is just the beginning. Leonard Sahling, real-estate analyst for Merrill Lynch in New York, figures the government will wind up with at least a $50 billion portfolio when it actually takes over all the thrifts that now are technically insolvent. Others put the total at $100 billion as more S&L’s go belly up in the years ahead.

Nor can the RTC simply dump its holdings on the market wholesale. “Everything we have is for sale,” says Thomas Horton, the agency’s deputy director, “but everything is not for sale at any price.” The government is barred by law from selling its assets for less than 95 percent of fair market value in the six depressed states of the Southwest – Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado and Louisiana – where about two thirds of the property is located. Still, “fair market value” is in the eye of the appraiser; Horton admits that properties that cannot be sold at 5 percent discounts will be “re-evaluated” until buyers are found.

The most promising properties in the RTC’s bag, mainly apartment and office buildings whose rents cover expenses, are sure to be snapped up by insurance companies, pension funds and other “deep pocket” investors. But such quality properties are in the minority. The largest proportion of the government’s holdings consists of vacant land, a tough commodity to peddle in the Southwest and other overbuilt areas.

In taking over Charles Keating’s notorious Lincoln Savings & Loan, the RTC acquired some $1 billion worth of property, including plots for 17 planned communities in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Louisiana. One of them is the 20,000-acre Estrella Project in the desert 20 miles southwest of Phoenix. Although Lincoln invested $200 million in preparatory work, only three homesites have been sold. Now the RTC’s agent, Mark Randall, is trying to figure out what to do with the property. “Vacant real estate has not fared well in the Arizona economy,” he observes sadly.

Other parcels may not draw buyers – no matter how attractive the price. “They’ll have to be plowed under to grow soybeans,” predicts Michael Aronstein, president of Comstock Partners, a New York investment firm. But while developers may sniff at many of the government’s offerings, interest is cropping up in some surprising quarters. Conservationists already are picking through the pile of unwanted real estate for wildlife preserves and other ecologically valuable property. The Florida Keys Land & Sea Trust, for instance, paid $1.35 million for Crane Point Hammock, a 63 1/2-acre estate that was going to be turned into a resort before its developers went broke. Now, it is slated to become a nature center.

Road woes continue/Neighborho od battles county over upkeep

GRANGERLAND – The way Linda Collins sees it, road service in the Pioneer Trails subdivision should be a simple matter of the county accepting responsibility.

Collins and other residents of the subdivision near Grangerland pay taxes to Montgomery County for services that include road maintenance. Therefore, the county owes it to the residents to keep the roads – some of which turn to mush in rain – maintained and passable, Collins says.
“It’s as simple as that,” she asserts.

But that, say county officials, is an oversimplification.

Pioneer Trails is one of the county’s 338 “red flag” subdivisions – unrecorded developments that have substandard roads – still entangled in a complex web.

The web was largely weaved during booming economic times, from the late 1960s through the early 1980s, when the county’s population more than doubled. The county in those years had neither the manpower, nor admittedly always the willingness, to ensure that rural subdivisions were recorded and the roads built up to county standards.

And buyers seduced by the area’s beautiful country environment weren’t inclined to read the fine print on sales contracts to learn for sure if the county or the developer was responsible for long-term road maintenance.

The legacy of the boom is most evident on a Pioneer Trails road named Willowisp, which in one secluded area has deteriorated into more of a grassy trail than a roadway.

It was during the county’s boom-and-build frenzy that Collins, 44, and husband, Raymond, bought property on Springfield Road in Pioneer Trails. By 1979, roads in the subdivision had deteriorated to such an extent that Mrs. Collins and residents stormed the county barn of Precinct 4 Commissioner Albert “Bull” Sallas, demanding repairs.

Sallas acquiesced, patching Springfield Road in spite of the fact, he says, that it wasn’t really the county’s responsibility.

Yet Collins has preserved a newspaper clipping of the encounter at the county barn, where Sallas was quoted as telling the residents, “If you marry a woman with a child, you accept responsibility for the child.”

Collins sees the clipping as an admission from Sallas that he’s responsible for the roads, wryly noting that “the commissioner hasn’t taken very good care of the children.”

Sallas says he never promised the residents he’d maintain all of Pioneer Trails, despite Collins’ claim to the contrary. In addition, he notes that the offices of the district and county attorneys in recent years have tied his hands in legal knots, precluding him from working on roads that aren’t rightfully county property.

“They can send me to the penitentiary if I just go out and fix any old road,” he says.

Sallas and Commissioners Court in 1982 accepted a portion of Springfield Road into its maintenance system, leaving it with a fresh, black-topped surface that’s been well maintained. That portion was accepted largely because it was already in “reasonable compliance” with county standards, Assistant County Attorney Marc Winberry says.

The portion that fronts the Collins property was not in such good shape and consequently was not accepted, the attorney says.

After years of steady deterioration, despite the frequent patchwork done by Sallas, the stretch of road fronting the Collins house became so shoddy – and so hard on a mail carrier’s Jeep – that the postal service last month threatened to cut off delivery to Collins and 50 other residents whose mailboxes line the street.

Outraged by the potential loss of mail service, Collins protested to county officials, who recommended that she petition for the road to be accepted by prescription – a sort of squatter’s rights process that allows a private road to become public after 10 years of continuous public use.

Commissioners Court approved the petition earlier this month and Sallas has since blacktopped the remainder of Springfield Road.

But Collins, though appreciative of the smooth new pavement in front of her house, is unappeased. The county, she says, still owes it to residents of the subdivision’ s back areas – where Willowisp and two other roads are in worse shape than Springfield ever was – to upgrade those streets and keep them maintained, too.

Sallas and the other county officials say they’ll do whatever is economically feasible to upgrade the roads to some degree of higher standards, even though it could be an expensive undertaking.
“The remaining roads have no base and no ditches and would require a considerable amount of work,” County Engineer Don Blanton recently told commissioners.
County officials say the residents may have to consider an agreement whereby the residents would pitch in money or materials and the county would provide the equipment and labor for the road improvements. Such agreements are frequently negotiated with residents of red flag subdivisions, Winberry says.

But Collins isn’t amenable such a proposal.

“That would be double taxation,” she says. “It’s the principle of the thing. These people pay road taxes just like everybody else and are not getting anything for it. They deserve roads that are just as decent as the ones that taxpayers in the rest of the subdivision get.”

Blanton, however, notes that county taxes go to other services besides road maintenance.
“Taxes go for law enforcement, to the health department and a lot of things. Road maintenance is one thing, but that’s actually a fairly small percentage of total taxes,” he says. “If you choose to live inside a city in Montgomery County, you don’t get the road maintenance for your county tax dollars.
“I’m not trying to minimize the fact that those people (in Pioneer Trails) have a road problem. They have a problem we can relate to because we see it every day. The problem goes a lot further than just this single subdivision. ”

Sallas says the Pioneer Trails developer, Kap, Inc., of Houston, should be held liable for improving the roads if at all possible, he says.

Winberry says the developer already has denied liability for the subdivision, but that the county hasn’t ruled out the possibility of suing the company.

The county attorney’s office in recent years has aggressively pursued developers of red flag subdivisions through litigation, forcing many to bring substandard streets up to snuff. The office last year alone recovered $100,000 from developers in agreements reached outside of litigation, Winberry says.

Until an agreement can be hashed out in the Pioneer Trails case, some of the residents there will have to live with the bumps and muddy messes that leave their vehicles in disrepair.

“Pioneer Trails is probably one of the worst examples of an unrecorded subdivision, ” Winberry says. “But it’s by no means unique.”

Crooked Developers & Banking Collapse

Resident’s crusading `fans fire’/Subdivision’s critic outlines difficulties


Kneeling beside a large pothole, Pinewood Village resident Judson Witham recites statutes from the state property code as if they were treasured passages from a favorite poem.

“I about know them by heart,” Witham proclaims, measuring the pothole’s depth with a fallen twig. “I’ve made it my duty. I want to warn people about the Pinewood Villages of the world.”

Around the Montgomery County courthouse, Witham’s name is synonymous with the problem-plagued subdivision he lives in.

It started six years ago with his myriad of complaints to developers and county officials about the unrecorded east county subdivision’s drainage and roads.

Five years later, the 30-year-old disabled construction worker who refers to Pinewood Village as “The Tiger Mosquito Ranch” was sitting in a jail cell, accused of threatening to kill Vice President George Bush and an assistant Montgomery County attorney over his subdivision woes.

“It was character assassination,” bellowed Witham, who claims he never threatened to kill Bush or the assistant Montgomery County attorney, Marc Winberry.

“I got angry at Mr. Winberry. Very, very angry. But I don’t think I threatened to kill him. I said something like `This just got personal and I’d like to rip your head off your shoulders.”‘ Witham said Winberry laughed at him during the telephone conversation, a claim the attorney denies.

“The last thing I wanted to do was do anything to contribute to his highly agitated state,” Winberry said.

Prosecutors said they dropped the third-degree felony charge of retaliation on condition that Witham “go forth and sin no more.”

As for the allegation that he threatened Bush, Witham said he was nervous and angry when he called Houston’s FBI office at 3 a.m. one night in November 1985 after his family was harassed by unknown motorists in a jeep.

“I started telling the FBI person about the problems out here and said if the vice president was being unfairly subjected to what my family and others in this county have been subjected to in Pinewood Village, they’d be all over it. They misunderstood me. I asked `What would you do if I threatened to kill the vice president of the United States?’ Next thing I know, they’re coming to get me.”

The federal charge against Witham was also dropped on condition that he undergo mental analysis.

Witham says he underwent a mental evaluation at Houston’s St. Joseph’s Hospital. “They wanted to see what made me tick. The psychiatric evaluation showed that all areas of my life were in normal parameters, except for the situation with Pinewood Village.”
Witham said he invested $50,000 building a two-story home on land that cost him $27,000. “It’s appraised at zero,” he said. “I couldn’t sell this subtropical swamp if I wanted to.”
He has lawsuits against the subdivision’s former financier, Western Bank on Westheimer; one against the county, its commissioners and county attorney; and another against American Title Insurance Co. whose licensed agent, the now defunct Eagle Title Co., issued title opinions on the land.

Witham accuses the county of turning its head from developers who skirted county subdivision regulations, a claim that has put him at odds with several Montgomery County office holders.

“Montgomery County has had years to enforce those regulations, but the good old boys sat back in their boots and straw hats and said `OK, let’s be easy on this one. He’s a good old boy like the rest of us,”‘ Witham claimed. “I’ve done what I’ve had to to get my point across.”

During a 1986 session of Commissioners Court, Witham plopped a jar of water in front of commissioners, challenging them to a “not so refreshing drink fresh from a Pinewood Village tap.”

He exhibits pictures of potholes in Pinewood Village, their widths and lengths duly noted.
“He definitely fans the fire. He keeps it going day and night,” said the subdivision’s developer Donald Clesson. He added that he doesn’t always appreciate the manner in which Witham draws attention to the subdivision.

County officials agree.

“I feel sorry for his situation, but he goes about things the wrong way. He wants to blame everything on the county and that’s not where the fault lies,” said a county official, who requested anonymity.

Counters Witham: “I’ve had a hell of an education and made my mistakes. But my only motivation is putting a stop to Pinewood Villages. I don’t think it’s right for anyone to be defrauded, especially in the purchase of a family home. That’s the sanctity of the family. It’s like people stealing candy from babies.”

POTHOLES & PROMISES/Montgomery County’s crumbling subdivisions/ Homeowners handle property woes


Polish immigrant Steve Szladewski’s ruddy complexion grows redder as he rattles off the sales pitch that led him to buy property in the Shepard’s Landing subdivision in Montgomery County.

Former astronaut Alan Shepard, the subdivision’s developer with former Houston Mayor Louie Welch, was to be his next-door neighbor, a salesman bragged. Szladewski’s land, though bordering the San Jacinto River, was unlikely to flood. And the horseshoe-shaped road winding through the subdivision would be paved.

“Alan Shepard didn’t move next door. A guy from New Jersey bought that lot,” said Szladewski, a small, gray-bearded man who struggles with his English.

The road also failed to materialize, and on one occasion, Szladewski anchored his tiny clapboard house to two large oak trees to save it from being swept away by the rain-swollen river.

“In Poland, I learn people in America help each other. But in America, I learn sometimes they say things so you buy.”

Szladewski is not alone. Shepard’s Landing, developed in Montgomery County’s real estate boom of the late 1960s through early 1980s, is one of hundreds of problem-plagued subdivisions that have come back to haunt the county and its residents during the bust.
They are speckled throughout the county’s dense pine forests, the legacy of a ripe economy gone sour. In many instances, they are the handiwork of unscrupulous developers who skirted the county’s rules to make a fast buck.

Some developers, however, say the county is to blame for encouraging development without spelling out or enforcing any restrictions.

Some of the subdivisions have plats recorded with the county as required by state law. Others – about 600 – are unrecorded or “red flag” subdivisions that do not meet county road and drainage standards and have no plats, or plans, filed.

All of them hold disgruntled, heartbroken homeowners with similar stories:

When Mike and Pam Jordan purchased five acres of land in The Wilderness subdivision off FM 1488 for $21,000, they were told there would be no problem in getting basic services such as electricity to their wooded lot.

“But we found out it really was the wilderness,” said Jordan. The only access to their trailer home is a narrow, muddy gas pipeline easement. No electrical easement to his property exists. The couple lived by a gas lantern for several months and had to pay $2,000 to run a wire through the woods and hook up with an electrical line. Their utility bills run double as a result.

In the recorded Park Place mobile home subdivision near Magnolia, the streets are named after those in the popular board game, Monopoly. But the similarity stops there, says resident Pat Wuensche, whose back yard on West Boardwalk is mushy with sewage.
Thirty families have joined the Texas attorney general in suing the developer, claiming he falsely represented that septic tanks would work in the subdivision’s soil. Wuensche said she is still waiting for the 24-hour security, recreational facilities and county-standard roads she was promised.

In the Indian Hills subdivision off 2978, Richard and Mary Blunk were shown a developer’s plat of the subdivision, reflecting a nice chunk of property on which they later built a home. They later discovered that the subdivision’s road cut through an area reflected on the map as their property.

Residents in some problem subdivisions are denied basic services such as mail delivery because of roads that turn into slick obstacle courses at the first rain. School bus drivers refuse to travel them. Fire and ambulance personnel live in fear of the day someone dies because an emergency vehicle cannot clear the mud and potholes. Realtors won’t waste their time listing such properties.

Hardly a Commissioners Court session goes by where residents don’t plead for help from the county.

The county has decided to go to the courts.

“In the past, I think developers thought `what’s the county going to do? They don’t have the stuff to come after me,”‘ said County Engineer Don Blanton. “I think they realize the county means business now.”

Last year, the county hired attorney Nelda Radabaugh to address the problem and force developers to comply with the subdivision requirements. She has sent numerous warning letters to developers asking them to upgrade their roads and drainage systems and has filed a lawsuit against one developer, S. E. Rutledge, of the Southern Pines subdivision off FM 1314.

In the past, county officials bowed to public pressure, maintaining the substandard roads to please constituents and gain votes.

But a downturned economy, tighter road and bridge budgets and a need to properly address what’s become a monumental problem has all but precluded that practice, say county officials.

Radabaugh said most developers the county has contacted are cooperative. “But some of them are bankrupt, gone to Timbuktu, Kansas, hiding.

“We don’t base our investigation on which residents are screaming the loudest. It has to be on which subdivisions are the worst. It’s not easy explaining to someone `Yes, your subdivision is bad. But you’re number 400 on the list.”‘

Jack and Ernestine Daniel, residents of the Southern Pines development, hope the county’s efforts will pay off.

They joke that they own lakefront property. The subdivision has no drainage ditches. When it rains, the water puddles up in chug holes, some nearly as wide as the road itself. Water moccasins sunbathe on the road after the water recedes.

Mrs. Daniel has named the subdivision’s narrow, dirt roads herself: Rub Board Road, Slip ‘N Slide Drive and Dip ‘N Dive Drive.

“It about says it all.”

To hammer her point home, she sent notices to the developers, inviting them to “The super slide and roller coaster ride in Southern Pines.” The letter continues “bring your bulldozer, dump truck, backhoe or grade as the pot holes and mud holes are at least three to four feet deep. Use of an ordinary car will destroy your tires, shocks and springs and put bruises on your skull.” A postscript reads, “The next invitation will not be as cordial.”

“Our children have been embarrassed to bring friends home,” Mrs. Daniel said. “The head coach at Sam Houston State came out here once to talk to our son. He said he never had to come down such deplorable roads in his life to recruit a boy.”

Polish immigrant Szladewski hopes the county’s efforts will benefit him as well.
His property in the unrecorded Shepard’s Landing subdivision off FM 2854 is not only in the flood plain, it’s in the river bed. County officials have told him his home would have to be built 21 feet off the ground to be above the 100-year flood plain.

Shepard, Welch and businessman Jack Coogan initiated the project. A now-defunct Conroe real estate brokerage company sold the lots.

The county filed misdemeanor charges against the three investors in 1980, claiming the subdivision was falsely represented as county approved. The investor’s attorney, Dan McCrary, said the charges were without merit and were dropped on condition that certain things be upgraded at the development. None were.

McCrary said purchasers in Shepard’s Landing signed letters acknowledging the land was in the flood plain.

“This is nothing my clients have escaped from unscathed,” he said. “They’re still paying for this flood plain property.”

Szladewski, with the help of a neighbor, keeps the lone road in the development graded. But land that he paid $4,000 an acre for has been appraised at $500.

He said he relied on the word of a salesman “and got taken. They told me it was recorded subdivision. They promise to fix the roads. They say they build a nice entrance to subdivision, something beautiful. We have nothing.”

Szladewski said he figured the subdivision would be well maintained when he was told Shepard would be his neighbor. “And Louie Welch, they say he build on lot 11 or 12.
“In Poland, I learn nobody cheats in America because everybody helps each other. If one person’s house burns, neighbors build another. That was America in my mind.”

In the Park Place subdivision off Dobbin Huffsmith Road, residents are hoping Attorney General Jim Mattox’s lawsuit against the developer will stop an odor the development on hot, humid days.

Mattox visited the recorded subdivision in 1984, declaring it unlivable. He then sued developer C.L. Conner, alleging he misrepresented that septic systems would work in the subdivision’s soil.

Residents want the developer to install a central sewage system or buy them out.
“When the wind blows just right, the smell can knock you over. It’s like living in a cesspool,” said resident Ralph Schafer, who chose the mobile home subdivision as his retirement home four years ago. He paid $10,000 for his lot.

“I wouldn’t have paid that much if it weren’t for all the amenities promised. They advertised this place like your favorite vacation resort. My wife and I used to like Las Vegas, but boy, this is no where close. My wife is even ashamed to have friends over to dinner because of the smell.”

Schafer and other residents say they were promised 24-hour security and recreational facilities that never materialized.

Conner claims the soil is suitable for septic tanks but several residents had systems improperly installed. He denies misrepresenting the development, and said he sued his contractor for not completing road shoulders.

Park Place civic association president Wuensche said residents suing over the septic systems have proof they were inspected by the county.

She is convinced a lingering kidney infection was caused by the problem with septic overflow.

“Our drinking water is well water and if the sewage is seeping into the ground, it would be in our water,” she said. “I had a $3,000 water-filter system put in and have had no problem since.

“The sad thing about situations like this is you’ve got so much money invested and you’re just stuck.”

Joe and Judy Patterson, residents of The Wilderness subdivision southwest of Conroe, can sympathize.

They purchased 18 acres last year and were not told by salesmen that the development could be under water in a few years, the potential site for the Lake Creek reservoir.
“It’s not so much the things they did tell us, it’s the things they didn’t,” said Mrs. Patterson. “We were misled on a lot of things.”

The couple was told that the dirt roads would be graded by nearby oil company workers.
“And that’s not true,” said Patterson who has repaired the suspension on his new truck twice within a year because of the rugged roads.

“We’d like to sell,” he said. “But where are you going to find another fool like us?”

Report: Developers owned almost all troubled S&Ls

United Press International

DALLAS – Real estate developers who bought their way into the troubled savings and loan industry in the early 1980s owned virtually all of the most deeply insolvent thrifts in Texas, it was reported Sunday.
An investigation showed real estate development entrepreneurs either own or owned 20 of the 24 most financially troubled savings and loans in Texas and that most of the remaining four went broke by copying the aggressive strategies of the developers-turned-thrift owners, the Dallas Times Herald said in a copyright story.
Most of the 24 institutions, which lost money at the rate of $8.94 million a day in the first quarter of 1987, are now in ruin.
They have lost all the money invested by their owners and $3.8 billion of depositors’ money that had to be replaced in part with emergency loans from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas.
Reports from the Federal Home Loan Bank, which has advanced at least $2.4 billion to the ailing thrifts, indicate the Texas 24 have been forced to repossess $2.7 billion worth of property from delinquent borrowers.
Seven of the institutions have been declared insolvent. All are under the strict supervision – if not outright control – of federal and state regulators.
Thrift experts place the two dozen institutions at the heart of an epidemic of risky lending and outright fraud that virtually bankrupted the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corp.
The Texas thrift crisis required Congress to pump $10.8 billion into the agency that insures S&L deposits up to $100,000. More than half of the FSLIC bailout funds will be used in Texas, where the agency expects to pay $6 billion and spend five years cleaning up failed S&Ls.
During the height of the Texas economic boom, one developer-thrift planned to open a branch office on the moon, another loaned $3 million to buy the Rolls-Royce fleet of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, and a third funded a real estate project that called for a private overpass spanning the 10-lane LBJ Freeway in Dallas. A fourth thrift operated a chain of barbecue stands, the newspaper said.
“Developers got us where we are in the savings and loan business through greed and a failure of ethics,” said Paul Hardy, a principal with Commercial Banc Group, based in Dallas, which specializes in resolving troubled real estate projects.
“They bought S&Ls with the idea of becoming real estate giants by using depositors’ money and taking advantage of inflation,” Hardy said.
Don R. Dixon, accused of looting Vernon Savings and Loan Association, said thrifts were taking advantage of powers granted by the Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982 to get an ownership stake in their borrowers’ projects.
Dixon told the Times Herald that builders turned around and acquired thrifts to assure themselves of financing and to tap into the profits of lenders.
Dixon, Vernon’s former owner, is named in a $350 million lawsuit filed by the FSLIC that accuses him and six other Vernon officers of plundering the S&L. Vernon Savings was declared insolvent in March, when it was $616 million in the red.
Dixon blamed federal regulators for Vernon’s failure.
The Federal Home Loan Bank began examining Vernon in summer 1985. In April 1986 it barred the S&L from renewing customer loans, almost all of which Dixon said were about to be renewed.
“I’m not a guy who flew into town to rape the savings and loan business,” Dixon said. “The regulators in Washington decided that entrepreneurs are bad and said: `We’ll sink the ships to kill the captains.”‘ wrote: | News, search and shopping from the Houston Chronicle
