BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — An alleged area scammer was busted Thursday after a joint investigation by Boca Raton Police, Boynton Beach Police, and the Florida Office of Financial Regulation. Gulfport Dieuvil (booking photo to right) is accused of scamming homeowners facing foreclosure.
From the investigators:
The Boca Raton Police Department, in conjunction with the Florida Office of Financial Regulation and the Boynton Beach Police Department, conducted a joint investigation into the business practices of Guilfort Dieuvil, president of Nationwide Investment Firm (NIF) Corporation.
NIF was originally located at 1375 Gateway Blvd. in Boynton Beach, but moved to 301 East Yamato Road in November, 2009. It remained there until December 2011, when it moved to 515 Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach. Dieuvil advertised on numerous radio stations, including Haitian and Spanish language stations, as well as YouTube. He also distributed flyers to facilitate the fraud.
The investigation found that Dieuvil solicited homeowners to transfer their homes, which were in the process of being foreclosed by their financial institutions, to him with the promise that his company would pay off the delinquent amount. Fifteen cases were selected for an in-depth investigation. The victims transferred their properties through either a Quit Claim Deed or Warranty Deed to Dieuvil, who did not pay off the delinquent mortgages and retained ownership of the properties for his own use. A total of 17 properties were transferred with an aggregate market value of $2,550,822.00.
Detectives arrested and charged Dieuvil with 13 counts of 1st degree grand theft, four counts of grand theft, obtaining property by false representation, and 17 counts of mortgage fraud.
