St. Saviour's developer bankrupt, likely headed to prison

From The Real Deal:

It’s collection time for accused fraudster Tomer Dafna.

More than two years after the investor and developer was indicted for participating in a mortgage fraud scheme, the industry players Dafna borrowed money from are coming out of the woodwork to recover funds they claim they’re owed.

Two of Dafna’s creditors filed a petition for his involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy last week, citing $1.3 million in claims, court records show. But that number could balloon to more than $20 million if the parties behind numerous lawsuits and outstanding judgments against Dafna become creditors.

The case against Dafna and his co-defendants is ongoing. Each man faces a $1 million fine and up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

In the meantime, private lenders are coming after Dafna to recoup funds they say he never repaid.

For those who don't recognize the name, Tomer Dafna was a co-owner of the St. Saviour's property in Maspeth. Karma is not always instant but it is most certainly a bitch, ain't it?

That's what stupid voters get for rewarding asshole democrats & Crowleys with re-election. This was a dirty back handed deal from day one.
Hope voters learned something however I doubt this.
