Beware of ivan diaz and ikon capital group llc.
He was suppose to help save me from losing my home, and I was supid to give him money thinking he was on my side. He has never contacted me on anything. The sheriff came and threw me out along with all my belongings. It was like disaster for me. He said I was going to keep my home, but it was a lie. Later on I have done some resources on him and I found out that he spent three years in jail and now he professes to be an expert on short sales. He quotes the Bible and is a smooth talker. He does his work seeking people who face foreclosure and promising them help. His idealism and his financial and short sale theories will land you in jail.
He is ripping off poor people left and right and the US Attorney Office and the FBI have been tipped many times
about his activity, but nothing has been done so far. It looks that, maybe they are just waiting to build a bigger case
against him and one day to grab all of the people involved but... Who knows...
To his potential customers, he illustrates a few success stories of those who use his methods. He doesn't, however,
tell you of the dozens who have failed and been jailed for using his fake paper work and ideology. I have friends and
several acquaintances who are devoted followers of his short sale theories. All of them spent time in jail later on and some now are facing sentences of more than seven years in prison. One is facing a 19 year sentence for being a "paper terrorist."
His short sale way to success involves with fake appraisals and fake hardship letters, buying properties for
illegally lowered prices and reselling them with illegally inflated prices.
Selling properties to other members of the conspiracy for drastically reduced prices through short sales can result of
convictions for conspiracy which carry a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both. Making a false short sale statement regarding condition of the properties, and making false hardship letters to the lender to have influence on the action of a bank, can also result a conviction for wire fraud affecting a financial institution and false statements to a lending institution, and each of them carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, a $1,000, 000 fine, or both.in determining an actual sentence judge consults the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide appropriate sentencing ranges. The judge, however, is not bound by those guidelines in determining a sentence.
When his followers ended in jail for contempt of court, Mr. Diaz blamed the defendants for not following his tactics perfectly So my advice is. Just stay away.
