So many web pages talk about Michael Prieskorn and how he's being sought after by the local police, the F.B.I., yet we hear nothing about his arrest and extradition to Minnesota. From the website, it seems that he's still sitting in Florida, avoiding legal troubles over his mortgage woes.

What's interesting is that you can search his name and you'll find he's had other issues down there as well, at least two of them involving mortgage issues.*How can the F.B.I. and the local police departments not notice this person?*

My guess is that Mike hooked up with a hot female whom he *thought* he could trust. He put the money in her name to launder it. She dumped him for someone else, taking his money and leaving him high and dry. Now he's back to playing mortgage games and simple property damage like a common thug. Gee, Mikey, did you fall for the skirt and she played you like a harp? Hope she was worth it 'cause now you owe the State of Minnesota 2.2 million dollars, not to mention the untold millions you'll owe the people you scammed. Toss in about 10-15 years in *prison*, not jail, and we'll see you when you're about 45 years old.

Saint Paul – The Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today that Joseph Cole, 45, of New Hope, is facing gross misdemeanor charges by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for failing to file tax returns for tax years 2005 and 2006.

According to the complaint, Cole was a partner in several businesses, including J & J Investment Properties of Minnesota, LLC and Progressive Home Services, LLC. A review of Cole’s bank records shows a large number of deposits from these two businesses during the years cited in the complaint. Several of the checks include the words “salary” or “wages” on the memo line, and are signed by Joseph Cole.

Cole’s income taxes were filed for tax years 2004 through 2006 in the fall of 2007, after he became aware of a pending criminal investigation. In addition, the complaint states Cole admitted to receiving income during these years and knew his income taxes had not been filed.

The name IPM and DMW properties ring a bell, they are on the run along with TJ Waconia. Cole, Joseph - Wallin, Colleen and Manning, Renee are in the process of going down. Just last week they agreed to all the charges ( civil court ) in Wright Co. this is going to force Wallin, Colleen into personal bankruptcy. Wallin, Colleen has distributed millions of dollars into her daughters name and we have traced the path. The house of cards is about to fall hard.
