This is NOT good news for Keith Brooking, as he's in $2 million debt AND being sued!
Apparently, he's the head of a plot to trick Wells Fargo out of $2 million!!
He's being sued in federal court in Georgia, where he allegedly took out 2 separate loans in 2008 which totaled $1,996,224.73!
And the he realized he couldn't pay it back.
He "realized he would not be able to meet his obligations" to Wells Fargo and started on a "systematic effort to hinder, delay and defraud" the bank.
Brooking began to hide all of his substantial assets, like property in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. This was all so the bank couldn't get them to satisfy the debt.
So how'd he do it?
He signed titles and deeds off to people he knew. Allegedly, of course, because here's what a rep for Brooking had to say:
"There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support Wells Fargo’s allegations that Keith transferred any properties … to fraudulently conceal assets. These allegations are completely unfounded and Keith is and will continue to defend himself vigorously against these allegations."
Very, very interesting.
It'll be exciting to see what happens — especially if he did all this! What a huge scandal!
We'll keep you updated!
