The Condo Con Was Nothing

New, 1 comment

Remember the "Dark Prince," the guy who had an accomplice speaking fake Chinese "gibberish" in a condo-buying con at One Rincon Hill? That's not even half the story. The guy came here as an exchange student from Nepal, stole more than $500k from a Japanese woman (his fake fiancee!), then coaxed another $41k from her after she found out, and is partly responsible for the closure of New College. All this is nuts, but it gets even worse: he's also facing a trial now for the murder of a 74-year-old Palm Springs retiree. You'd be hard pressed to believe it even after reading it.
