Hopefully this guy will be put away for a long time. The world is pretty screwed up when a criminal like this can get loans for millions and I can't get a 15,000 loan to open a practice.

that this guy is still out on the streets after what he did...nearly put several banks on the edge with his scams.

Don't under why or who has kept him out of jail.

Where did the money come from that paid back some of these banks?

His house was auctioned, along with contents and all vehicles. Where has he been living at?

There is more to this story, then what has been reported. Maybe he was allowed to stay out of jail, hoping to get to the other people involved.

Press is reporting that FBI stated this is muliple states and over 12 million dollars.

Why didn't Kent County have this guy in jail for pulling this same stunt here. This should have never happened.He almost broke Macatawa Bank and they never issued a warrant for him.

Mr Vorce and Mr. Jett have NOT been formally charged in Wisconsin. Although the alleged facts of their arrests seem bleak, there seem to be details missing. We all need to remember that these are two human beings and they are good, kind men who seem to have made a mistake. Lets wait to see the outcome before passing such harsh judgments. I surely don't believe everything I read.... do you?

He should be locked up along with all everyone that was involved in FAILING to take him to trial last year.... hang them all out to dry... they are ALL GUILTY FOR FAILING TO PURSUE THE CASE. Of course your city and State Government in Michigan is corupt anyway... you keep voting in the same crooks every election.

I see that you climbed from under your rock and posted over here your BS regarding Mr Vorce....

The outcome should be he goes to prison for a very
long time....he has scammed his way through life!

Pretty pathetic don't you think? Maybe he thought since he didn't get arrested last year that he had
a free ticket? Well think again buddy...this will
be his ticket for a new Prison Condo...heard the
food was bad!

I hurt for his whole family. All that pain and suffering and they are Good people.
Who knows why Michael did what he did- if we or anyone could figure that out then we could help alot of people.
We really need to pray for his family especially his parents--they have to be uplifted not HURT anymore.

Although this doesn't justify theft. I have noticed over the years that kids from more affluent homes tend to think that they, themselves are affluent too.

I think this attitude and the inablility to delay gratifcation, in combination with greed & dishonesty, was this young man's downfall.

That's slanderous my friend. You may think you're anonymous on this board...not as much as you would think.

As for Vorce, I feel no pitty for this cat. He ruined a lot of lives....just ask a few of his unemployed lenders caught in the middle of his BS.

Why are people ripping on Jon Rooks? All he does is work 80 hrs a week and do real business, legal busines. Jon is a great guy. Mike vorce is a fraud and will do his time. I can't believe anybody would stand up for Mike Vorce. All Mike has done for the past years is lie and be a giant fake who was spending other peoples money and other banks money. His whole last ten years has been a fraud. I feel sorry for his parents and family because they are great people. I was in Mikes close circle, traveling with the guy and being a friend. Like everyone else I was fooled and lied to. Mike has lied to everyone he has known. Locked up he will be for a long time. Thats where he needs to be. Hope he has a big big big man for a cell mate.... have fun picking up the soap you POS.
