For those directly in the know, particularly those who can demonstrate they have been harmed by Bill & National Marine.

Here's a link to the FL DBPR complaint form:

http://www.state.fl.us/dbpr/re/forms/re-2200.pdf

Here is the important info about his license:

https://www.myfloridalicense.com/Lic...ID=&id=3003153

Note; he obtained his license in Mar of 2005. He was well aware of the National Marine mess & obviously hid it from the State of Florida. My professional opinion (as a licensed FL Real Estate Broker) is that he obtained his license by fraud and there should be demostratable evidence of "moral turptitude" (one of FREC's favorite words).

Here are what I consider to be the important problems with his qualification, from Florida Statutes Chapter 475:


(Bold by me)

475.17 Qualifications for practice.--

(1)(a) An applicant for licensure who is a natural person must be at least 18 years of age; hold a high school diploma or its equivalent; be honest, truthful, trustworthy, and of good character; and have a good reputation for fair dealing. An applicant for an active broker's license or a sales associate's license must be competent and qualified to make real estate transactions and conduct negotiations therefor with safety to investors and to those with whom the applicant may undertake a relationship of trust and confidence. If the applicant has been denied registration or a license or has been disbarred, or the applicant's registration or license to practice or conduct any regulated profession, business, or vocation has been revoked or suspended, by this or any other state, any nation, or any possession or district of the United States, or any court or lawful agency thereof, because of any conduct or practices which would have warranted a like result under this chapter, or if the applicant has been guilty of conduct or practices in this state or elsewhere which would have been grounds for revoking or suspending her or his license under this chapter had the applicant then been registered, the applicant shall be deemed not to be qualified unless, because of lapse of time and subsequent good conduct and reputation, or other reason deemed sufficient, it appears to the commission that the interest of the public and investors will not likely be endangered by the granting of registration. The commission may adopt rules requiring an applicant for licensure to provide written information to the commission regarding the applicant's good character.


Under the first box of the complaint form I would probably check "Other" and explain with "Moral Turptitude & Dishonesty". Under the details, explain what he did & how he did it. Present all copies of correspondance with both Nat'l Marine, Bill himself & any banks that are involved. Demonstrate how his practices caused you financial harm.

This won't get you your money or time back, but very well could protect others from him and hopefully will cost him his current job.

Let me know if I can provide any help.

Andy

If someone provides me with police reports, bank letters, court filings, etc. I'd bee happy to send one myself as this tool makes my industry look bad & creates more gov't red tape for us honest guys to deal with.
