Regardless, it took two years for my wife to get exonerated and for the state attorneys office to drop all the charges against her. Even though she was given an apology by the state attorney, it wasn't good enough for me. I decided that no matter what, I wasn't going to rest until I exacted my revenge on the criminals that put my family through the two years of living hell that we experienced. After four years or so, I finally nailed the man who recruited the straw buyer that was involved in my wife's case, Alex Orriols. I originally wrote about him here, where I outlined how he had lied to a detective from the Miami Dade Police Department about one of the straw buyer transactions that he was involved with. Despite the fact that I basically laid out his entire fraud in that post, I couldn't get a single person from the Miami Dade PD interested in reviewing the case, instead they just let the case sit dormant without lifting a finger.
With that said, for the last four years, I kept hounding every single law enforcement officer that I could, whether they were from ICE, FBI, the US Marshals service or whatever till I found someone that was interested in taking the case. Thanks to the hard work of the folks over at Homeland Security and a little help from a friend in the U.S. Marshals service, yesterday we got this...

4 arrested, charged in $1.5 million bank fraud, money laundering scheme
MIAMI – Four individuals were arrested Tuesday and charged with various counts of bank fraud, money laundering and wire fraud. The charges resulted from an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Investigation, the Florida Department of Insurance Fraud and the Miami-Dade Police Department.FUCK YES! Just to make sure that I wasn't imagining things, I went over to the federal bureau of prisons website to check whether or not Mr. Orriols was in custody...
Eduardo Hernandez Jr., 32, of Miami, Alexander Orriols, 43, of Miami Beach, Jose Arias, 50, of Miami, and Milena Hernandez, 30, of Miami, were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
According to the indictment, the defendants engaged in a bank fraud scheme using straw buyers as loan applicants to obtain loans using false financial information and documentation. To execute the scheme, the defendants allegedly recruited and persuaded individuals to apply for boat loans from companies owned or controlled by the defendants. They would then submit the loan applications to financial institutions. The applications included false information regarding down payments and deposits made to the defendants’ companies.
The defendants also allegedly falsified the straw buyers’ financial records, including IRS W-2 forms. They then submitted these false financial documents to financial institutions. Based on these false documents and misrepresentations, the financial institutions approved and issued loans to the straw buyers.
The indictment also alleges that the defendants paid the straw buyers a portion of the loan proceeds as payment for their service and to cover some of the monthly payments on the loans in order to keep the fraud from being detected. As a result, the defendants diverted the loan proceeds for their personal use and used some of the money to further the fraud scheme.
If convicted, the defendants face possible maximum statutory sentences of 30 years in prison for conspiracy to commit bank fraud and substantive bank fraud; 20 years in prison for money laundering conspiracy, substantive money laundering and wire fraud; and 10 years in prison for substantive money laundering.
NICE! I hate to gloat at another mans misfortune, but I hope that this mf rots in jail. Like the title of today's post says, patience and perseverance finally pays off. Despite not having written about the original cast of characters that were the genisis of this blog, I haven't forgotten about them and I wont till everyone of them is sitting behind bars contemplating how they got there, especially that fat fuck that fled to Panama after I outed him!
