Investors torture financial advisor

June 24, 2009

A group of four seniors kidnapped, bound, and tortured a financial advisor who they claim was responsible for losing 2 million pounds they had invested in real estate projects. Capturing and binding the advisor took time as his kidnappers kept “running out of breath,” according to MailOnline.

Two of the investors, doctors in their seventies, kept the lender in their basement for four days while they burned him with cigarettes and beat him, MailOnline reported.

Due to the gangs “many infirmities,” police officials brought a physician along when they made their arrests. Read more at MailOnline.

As regards to Guth and Yaguda and their Ponzi scheme at Estate Financial: Unless they get a very long prison sentence… there may be a “Come to Jesus” meeting awaiting the two of them…

Think about it: 2,500 angry “investors”… perhaps the safest place for them is where they are now…

I loved it Karen and I am still laughing. I keep thinking they must of thought he needed a “good beating” and weighed the risk they were taking (jail) and thought it was worth it maybe, based on their ages and infirmities. I am sure it was not premeditated. HEE HEE HEE

Since this news broke they are probably considering putting Guth and Yaguda under protection up there at the county jail, if they have such a thing ,don’t ya think? This MAY scare that Orange County criminal lawyer back home. There may be other spiteful senior citizens lurking around here who would love to get their hands on those two! Just visit the court proceeding at the next hearing and see how many regularly showup. Easy now, they will get theirs. I am lifting MY weights at the senior gymn.

Willpower has not posted anything ban worthy friendindeed, IMHO, but I keep an eye on his postings, A clinton here and a pelosi there don’t rise to the level requiring a ban,YET.

Can we keep WILLPOWER/aka Jerry Dagna from lilnking everything on this site to his own political agenda?? I thought he was banned from this site, George.

There is something about the word, torture, I’d like to discuss.

This article infers that applied sizzling pain under some form of control or confinement is torture. It is just one form of torture!

When someone willfully puts you in bondage, mental pain, fear and physically incapacitated you, that is torture too.

This form of torture is what some advisors do to trusting old people and new to the business world / trained to be greedy people too.

The story title should have read, Torturer Meets Torturer.

Whew!! I’m glad to hear more people have had problems. Probably from reading to many conspiracy’s, I was thinking it was a plot to keep me from posting. ;-)

I’ve also had problems and it started around a week ago. It said too many connections to site. I started wondering if something had happened to the bandwidth. I’ve also been experiencing a lot of automatic, unrelated other sites pop ups (on this site). I think CCN might want to have a tech take a look at whats going on.

No Newsome is right. I had problems the prior three nights between about 5 and 9 in the evening. Same thing saying to many connections to the site (CCN). It started last Sat. was fine Sun. then off and on this week.

Newsome… the slow down in the world wide web today was because Micheal Jackson died from a drug over dose induced heart attack at 2:15PM PST.

At least the children of the world are safe again.

The Net will be normal by tomorrow. (No pun intended)

Congratulations, CCN !!!

I tried to look at the site, and was denied because there were “Too Many Connections,” which must mean that a lot of people were looking at you.

Are you becoming successful? Too big for your current host? Congrats.

This was 2 million pounds which is just shy of 4 million dollars U.S. Man could you picture what the investors here could do to Miller at 80+ mil or Estate at 135+ mil.

I would be nervous if I was any of these groups. They better stay away from their investors at the senior center. Hehehe.

Yup Willpower, I find it funny too. Nothing like a little vigilantism,I guess that DA didn’t receive any brass from Arnold!

By: WILLPOWER on 6/24/09

I know I shouldn’t find this funny but somehow it is so right-on!

Gives me thoughts of nancy “stretch” pelosi!

Nothing wrong with a lil western justice eh?

In Iran that guy wouldn’t have his head…so I guess he’s lucky.

How thoughtful of the investors, they brought two doctors so they would have a second life saving opinion for the advisor. Did the advisor offer the investors a life savings second opinion?

It’s a sad day when the populace believes the only recourse for crime is their own. Too many people are involved in these schemes to want to investigate and prosecute. This is not limited to the financial industry, but also to the abuse of children sexually, and by their exposure to domestic violence.
