Safeguard Properties Sued Under Federal Racketeering Laws

Below is an Article detailing a new lawsuit spun up in federal court against Safeguard Properties (SGP) for Federal Racketeering.  We made the wire fraud accusations back  when we worked Safeguard Properties with respect to changing the bids and reporting on conditions that were not accurate with specificity to a property we serviced and using email to do such.  Amazing how all of our detractors out there felt these were outlandish claims!  I am sure that the very same folks …whom are the cheerleaders for the Corporate World will state that this Publication and the couple and their lawyer of record are wrong as well!  Why do we monitor the Middle East North Africa Financial Network?  Well, our Sources …whom do not exists, as we are always told, find it necessary to ensure we are up-to-date on information.  A BIG Thank You to “our Sources whom do not exist.”

BRIEF: Bethel Park couple sue contractor in federal court

Jun 20, 2013 (Menafn – The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review – McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) –A Bethel Park couple claim in a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday that a national property management company that handles foreclosure services had a local contractor repeatedly break into their home in 2012.

Alexandra and Anthony Hlista claim that Safeguard Properties of Valley View, Ohio, and the local contractor violated federal racketeering laws because they used the mail and electronic communications in setting up the break-ins and also violated state and federal consumer protection laws.

Michael Malakoff, their lawyer, said the contractor nailed windows shut, damaged screens and storm windows and changed the lock on their back door without any type of court order.

“They weren’t even in foreclosure,” he said.

A company spokeswoman and the local contractor couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

The couple have a pending federal class-action lawsuit filed in 2011 against Citi Mortgage of New York, IBM Lenders Business Process Service of Oregon and a Philadelphia law firm over mortgage-related fees that they claim are prohibited by state law.
