This is a real and concrete warning about an imminent and real danger in Sosúa. It's about the most notorious and hated scammer in Sosúa's real estate market. This guy has way over 100 or even more court cases of frauded clients against him but he and his lawyer bend the law to within nanometers of illegality and let their victims run with their head against the wall playing every dirty trick imaginable. Many people have lost their money with this guy ( that's why Western Union is in his building too... pic 3 - lame joke...). His contracts are suicidal for the naive customer who's day dreaming about a little appartment on a sunny island during long and cold winter days.... This guy sold us three appartments ( gosh !!! were we - my exwife and I - easy victims for this SOB...) He kept control over the building where we had two small appartments for renting purposes.... he rented them out but never gave us a cent of the income, feigning that it was barely enough for the overheads of the building ( 12 small appartments...) See next tip about what he did to us regarding the third appartment.... And pic 1 shows one of his signs with his ugly picture on it which I found four weeks ago hanging on a palm tree on my property.... This guy has sold "lots" on public streets (!!) and in non existing projects, back in Detroit where he started he's still wanted by the police for document forging and other crimes, he was presented in newspapers and TV-shows in the DR as the most scandalous , corrupt and criminal real estate broker of the whole island.... And he was a suspect in a murder case but he saved himself , as usual , by bribing police, coroners and judges.... This is also why he has to continue frauding.... so he can pay his protectors..... BEWARE JB AND NCR - NORTH COAST REALTY ! Don't step in this cut throat trap... !
