Has it occurred to anyone that when Vorce was living in Miami he was actually funneling fraudulently obtained loot to the Cayman Islands?

I think the advent of electronic producing of financial statements that are used to inform decision makers on business matters leave a very big opportunity for fraud and hi-jacking of organizations from banks, to all levels of government, to churches to school boards. People need to demand more accountabilty from people with titles of "business manager" or "accountant".

I think citizens would be surprised at how much gets "slid" under the nose by people they elect to
represent them.

....a great big speed boat [like 50 feet]........with a big Ford truck that pulls it.

Now I understand how that all fits in with the BMW......and land purchases......with plenty of cash to spare.

I'm so sorry for the innocent bystanders and family members as these guys get to face their reality. I sure hope they can be stopped now........instead of after so much more money has been stolen from OUR banks. This affects all of us, here in GR, and many other places as well.

The dipstick if famous LOL

From The Grand Rapids Press
West Michigan's top newsmakers for 2008

"The winner of the house might find a boat via the auction block, too. Michael Vorce made headlines for the second year in a row for alleged fraudulent titles on boats. In 2007, Vorce was arrested for securing millions of dollars in loans on high-end yachts that didn't exist or he did not own. The feds were still investigating that case when he was arrested again this past August for another boat loan that didn't float."
