On March 3rd, 2020 a jury found Anthony Williams GUILTY of all 32 counts in the Superseding Indictment in the case of United States v. Anthony Williams in Federal District Court in the District Of Hawaii, case number 2017-cr-00101.
Williams was charged with wire fraud and mail fraud in connection with a fake foreclosure rescue scam on the islands of Hawaii. Williams targeted homeowners facing foreclosure and promised them that he would stop the foreclosure of their homes and cut their monthly mortgage payments in half if they would pay him an up front fee plus an amount equal to half of their mortgage payment every month thereafter. So, Williams simply replaced his victims’ mortgage holder with HIMSELF on the receiving end of his victims’ mortgage payments every month. Williams provided his victims with a written money-back guarantee that he would be successful in this endeavor.
Thereafter, Williams did nothing to stop the foreclosure on his victims’ homes, except to file worthless “VOODOO” documents in public record which had no effect whatsoever on the foreclosure or on the property in question. Williams did not honor a single written money-back guarantee. Williams sent the money he stole from his victims in Hawaii to his mother in Texas to hide it from his victims and from law enforcement authorities in Hawaii.
Williams is scheduled to be sentenced on July 24th, 2020. Williams was ordered to be held in custody until sentencing. Williams was previously convicted in Florida for a similar scam in that state and was sentenced to 15 years in prison there. Williams will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.
