There is an even bigger story with more crooks to be arrested, if someone looks into the mortgage fraud and embezzlement. The same people were robbed again when their construction money and land down payments started disappearing. Someone should look into this side of the business.

These people have ruined countless families hopes of a future in the US.

I am a relation of one family, and have seen the hurt and destruction caused by Barrett and Leggett.

In our research to see how to move to Florida we met with a man called Eric Hallam from Royal Developments, it seemed a very plausible scheme. We took advice from our realtor/management company in Florida and didn't pursue it. I find it hard to believe that someone would take another persons hard earned money in this way. I hope the American courts can seize his assets and reimburse the defrauded investors some how.

I know a number of Rick and Mick's victims, all of them innocents who put their lives and dreams in the hands of men with no redeeming value. But they did not operate alone, the digging needs to go deeper where unethical realtors several of them fellow brits, and mortgage brokers commited mortgage fraud, all the while hamstringing their clients who could not work to support themselves as their money drained away.

All of them despicable.

Ive know Mick Leggett since 1985 - I was once his wife. He left me when I was 6 months pregnant ( does this despicable deed suprise you ?) he left me for the recently widdowed Katrina - she turned his life support machine off on or arround the 2nd Nov 91 and the fatithful husband Mick moved in on 22nd Nov - this people tells you exactly what kind of people mick & wife katrina are like. And of course 15 years later not a penny in maintenance money ( but does that suprise you either ?)
ROT IN HELL LEGGETT !
you forgot to mention that you actually were having an affair with mick while working with him i was then at home with his four young children. seems to have slipped your mind . i remember you laughing when my children and i were left homeless so dont be a hipacrit and i warned you about him at the time

I love you english folks. Your spelling is terrible and some of your words Im still learning to affix to certain sayings or meanings.
First off, Mick is a scumbag, truly morally and spiritually bankrupt...but thats ok because 4 seconds after his heart stops beating he will be overcome with sadness and regret it all.
At least he is in the can as we yankees call it. And trust me, those big scary blacks will love his petite arse and cute little accent!
Chris Barrett was in on it to the max. I worked with those two idiots and saw it all first hand. I heard the conversations, I saw the liens on all the homes, I heard the subcontractors complaints etc etc etc.
And now?...I will NEVER get involved with ANY British person in ANY way whatsoever. Im even tempted sometimes to randomly punch people in the throat that sound english. I do apologize, I know thats not right. But in all my years of being a businessman Ive never seen people so ruthless and self centered and heartless.
chris Barrett resides in harmony, FL at 7013 Five Oaks Drive. Its a great big 2 story, in law suite, with pool and garage and of course, was built right on schedule with no delays and no money skimmed off the top! welcome to America!

you should all listen to yourselves i have known mick for a lot of years and he has never done any wrong to me ok maybe he has done wrong to a lot of people in the past for which i am sure he may pay for now but lets not forget mick and katrina were not the only ones involved and lets not forget that they also have kids to worry about the same as most of us have and they also need some consideration it isnt their fault so chin up kids if you are reading this and good luck mick and katrina

round 2.
I was once told by one of the investors that English people are cold and think small, but when they come here to vacation to disney, they see loads of potential and sunny weather and straight uncapped teeth, well at least for the most part!
Im wondering if anyones got any juice on Butterfield, I know he was an enemy of Micks when he stood up and demanded that the money be acounted for.
I remember mick and Chris used to swear by the church of england and the queen. there you have it...two things that certainly represent evil. Its a shame Princess Di had to be "wacked" because she was pregnant with a Muslums baby...so sad but normalcy in the world we live in today. She was the only thing english I loved...besides the Dyson vacuum! How did this english poison seep onto American soil?
oh well at least one of them is in jail and the other's probably nervous as all hell that his ship is goin down next! What a feeling to wake up to every morning.
And what about Mark Hallett, the latest British investor that is (or was)using his own $ to finance royal (now Suburban construction). Anyone know anything about him?

ya I know. the bad mouth thing. thats not right.
Its funny now Im researching my english roots with some of my older family. Perhaps Im related to Mick?
I must say all English arent bad. all anyone arent bad.
But my dealings with them have ruined it before it began.
They ripped me off, I did some work for them. And coincidently, everyone else I knew that worked for them....got ripped off!
It just didnt seem to be true. He did have balls that Mick. Balls ye steel.
I know for real...that theres no feeling quite like a prison cell door slamming.
God save us all.

I have a British friend who was also scammed by Mick Leggett. She and her chldren were deported back to the UK. What I don't understand is why didn't these "investors" question the fact that Mick went from one luxury car to another every couple of months, travelled back and forth to the UK repeatedly "looking for new investors"? He built a multi million dollar home for himself but the investors couldn't see that no homes for sale were going up? I feel deeply for these people but they got in it of their own free will, unfortunately they got taken. If they are still in the US illegally because their visas didn't come through, I say, with heartfelt sympathy, send them home and let them take it up in the courts in the country where they did business and perhaps have a contract with Mick and fight it out in the courts over there.
Lynne Woods you’re talking through your rear! The Leggett "investors" that are still in Florida are here LEGALLY. In most cases they did business here so are taking action in the US courts. Your "friend" was having it off with Leggett and was complicit in the fraud and scam until she herself was ripped off. Leggett did not build a "multi-million dollar home". He paid $561,000 for it. What makes you think he was deported? He wasn't! 20:20 hindsight is easy, we all have it, but there were NO signs or bad references to be found when most of these investors paid their money. So if you can't get your facts right, I would suggest you mind your own business.

R G Crooks (aptly named if you are a friend of Leggett I assume) You might catch up with the scum bag at Orange County Jail if your quick, otherwise he will probably be spending a very long time in a Federal Penitentiary, hopefully in the company of a big fat ugly S.O.B. with a passion for short poncey men with died black hair. For the time being at least, Katrina is still at home at 6132 Waterfield Way, Saint Cloud, Florida.
