I know his parents and they are very good, decent, moral people. They have gone through hell in all of this. No one has the right to bash the parents. Mike made his own decisions in life. He is a selfish, low-life who does not derserve compassion.

alright people. lot of you are wondering why this idiot wasn't in jail. The FBI is trailing the dummy to get one of two things, mike either will go to where the money is or he will do it again if he doesn't have any money. Guess what he did it again and now the process has begun. He will have two diffrent cases going, the one in Michigan and this new one that involves many states and banks. This scumbag will be going away for a very long time. I am glad he is sitting in jail right now and I am sure they will not allow him to post bond considering he just scammed another 2.6 million and he would be considered a flight risk. Believe it or not the FBI has dealt with low lifes like this for a very long time. They were on top of this from the start. Now someome will behind Mike Vorce in a prison cell. getting the only thing he has earned.....

I agree..... I know the family well.... his parents are some of the greatest people I have ever met. What Mike has done has nothing to do with them. Leave them alone....

He learned all his self righteous actions from his dad, who is quite a piece of work himself.

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.

Look at yourself in the mirror! You know nothing about his family. Judge him not the ones who loved him!

Make a mistake? This isn't a mistake.... What Mike has done is lie to friends, family and live a life of fraud and hurting the people closest to him. MISTAKE? c'mon! When you fruad banks over and over and over of millions of dollars, it's not a mistake. When you steal someones ID, that'snot a mistake. It's you don't care about anybody but yourself. Mike has runied business's, families, and career's of innocent people. I feel bad for the family of Mike, they did nothing wrong and people are taking cheap shots at them and that's not fair. As far as mike goes he deserves everything that is about to happen to him. I notice where you are writing from. Family? If so my regards go out to you. It's not your fault or anybody elses for what Mike has done. Oh! I have made mistakes and will make more, but they will be mistakes, not intentionally screwing anybody and everybody to be a fake and pretend that I am a high roller. I can't believe you call what he did a mistake!

His parents were both school Principles in GR
They really dont have a lot of money Mike even scammed them
I was told that Mike put a non existant boat in his dads name and the bank started calling his dad asking for payment on his big Boat
he provided his dad a new corvette for his birthday a couple of years ago and when all hell broke loose Pooffff goes the Vett
I do not think his parents had any idea his dad told me often how proud he was of his son
thinking his buissnesss ventures were legit
I feel bad for his dad

Why did WoodTV stop covering this story? No follow up after the detention hearing? Suspicious ...
