PLAYA DEL CARMEN, SOLIDARIDAD - June 1, 2013 - Not withstanding that 1-1/2 years ago it was made public that Americans Richard Houghton and Sean O’Neal, of the real estate company Investment Propertiesmexico.com, located in Playa del Carmen, was found to have defrauded foreign investors and also had charges pending in the US for fraud amounting to US$8 million, the federal authorities have taken no legal actions and so they continue taking in money. This is according to a complaint from Leslie D. Dent.

Leslie D. Dent, an American who lives in Plays del Carmen, said that she was the victim of a fraud by Richard Houghton and Sean O’Neal with the sale of a nonexistent property in Chunyaxché, located between Tulim and Felipe Carrillo Puerto, for an amount of US$175,000...

[Fulano's comment: Now here is something interesting. Those two fraudsters, Richard Houghton and Sean O’Neal, wrote a totally bullshit glamor piece on investing in Mexico and it was picked up and reposted by Gustavo Torres.

"Fulano's comment: Now here is something interesting. Those two fraudsters, Richard Houghton and Sean O’Neal, wrote a totally bullshit glamor piece on investing in Mexico and it was picked up and reposted by Gustavo Torres."

Of course it was. He is the one allegedly selling the Playa Bonita Condos. You can't make this shit up, and in Rosarito Beach- you don't have to.

I heard an old radio show yesterday, from before TV. It was "Mr. X" and the radio voice was a British actor. The plot involved phony Hawaii land sales to veterans of WWII (of course before Hawaii was a state).
The locations change, the stories don't.
Funny if you really want to live in a place in Mexico you only need to speak Spanish. Don't buy, rent or even easier (sometimes) just co-habitate. Learning Spanish is a must however.

From their website:

Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt

Fulano peels onions like an Iron Chef. I do get his point, but why shoot the translator? Doesn't he speak enough Spanish to take the author on?

I never translated the entire article. Here is the best part:

Leslie D. Dent dijo que primeramente contactó a Richard Houghton y Sean O’neal por Internet, quienes le ofrecieron en venta el terreno ubicado en el ejido Chunyaxché-Muyil, 30 kilómetros al sur de Tulum, en la carretera federal que conduce a Felipe Carrillo Puerto, y debido a que le pareció interesante, en julio del año 2010, visitó a sus connacionales en sus oficinas Investment Propertiesmexico.com, localizada en la plaza Progreso al sur del Bulevar Playa del Carmen, acordando la venta de un predio de 18 hectáreas por un monto de 175 mil dólares estadounidense.

Finalmente, manifestó que una vez que se firmaron los papeles de compra-venta del predio en mención, desde la Unión Americana trasfirió en el año 2011 los 175 mil dólares al corredor público Gilberto Guzmán Rivera número 12 plaza Quintana Roo; y hasta la fecha el terreno no le ha sido entregado y de acuerdo a reuniones sostenidas con las autoridades ejidales de dicho núcleo agrario, Richard Houghton y Sean O’neal y la empresa Investment Propertiesmexico.com no tienen propiedad alguna en ese sitio.


Leslie D. Dent said that first she contacted Richard Houghton and Sean O’Neal via internet, who offered her the land located in ejido Chunyaxché-Muyil, 30 kilometers south of Tulum on the federal highway to Felipe Carrillo Puerto, which was for sale. Because she was interested in it, in July, 2010, she visited with her fellow Americans in their offices of Investment Propertiesmexico.com, located in the Plaza Progreso, south of Boulevard Playa del Carmen, and agreed to the purchase of the 44-acre property for US$175,000.

Finally, she said that once the real estate purchase papers for the property were signed, she transferred the US$175,000 from the United State to public notary No. 12, Gilberto Guzmán Rivera, in Quintana Roo. As of now, she has still not been transferred the land. According to meetings she held with officials of ejido Chunyaxché-Muyil, neither Richard Houghton nor Sean O’Neal nor the company Investment Propertiesmexico.com have any property at that location.
