    Indeed this builder RW Hertel & Sons, Inc. and his multiple bogus LLC's and LP's are just smoke and mirrors to a big fraud, according to the CSLB there license is going to be revoked and they are still under investigation by the board more formal complaints have been filed against them for defective and leaking homes. There offices have closed and are down to just a hand full of unexperienced employee's who know Nothing about construction. The CSLB has several more complaints against them and are awaiting a hearing to finally revoke the license. Per several other victims some special investigators have been obtaining key statements under oath to indict Ron Hertel and his Lover man Robert JS Fowler.

    Has anyone got information on these con men involved with SLO-VERDOT, LLC or VERDOT Group, L.P. run by Robert Fowler and Ron Hertel of the RW Hertel 7 Sons, Inc. I have been notified they are going out of business and have Fraudulently defaulted on many loans and concealed moines into the above companies please provide if you have information or email me. According to the State Investigators there contractors license is being revoked for fraud and unpaid Court Judgments and they have defaulted on so many loans it is unreal. I need the information to give to my Investigators who are assisting some Banks and private lenders for fraud. Ron Hertel, Bobby or Robert JS Fowler William Zech, Thomas Habbick, Michael Shilling and any others you know of... thanks in advance. I was told there Lawyer also has quit since he failed to pay his as well so the sooner they get arrested the better for us all.

    Thank you Mark Garden for your information on Hertel and his Planes being seized, ACI has confirmed Hertel failed to pay his bills as usual and the planes were in fact taken. Too bad the banks can not take back the loans they gave him which are now in default. he cheated many people but the Good News is he and partner signed several applications for loan under federal perjury laws. So the justice system is watching very close to see his next scam.

    It is listed on the www.cslb.ca.gov site under his license 683494 since he failed to pay Court ordered judgments his license is going to be revoked as well. He is hiding his cash but they know were it is.

    Same old story builder rips off banks, investors, and buyers now according to Larry Ward of HOB, Hertel and Fowler have gotten there monies moved to new accounts and other banks all in a crude attempt to conceal the money fraud they are now facing in Federal Court. The only loans the Bank has that are not performing or being paid back are all by Herel and Fowler and Atatscdero Ventures, LLC et al so now we know who the con men are Robert JS Fowler and his boyfriend ron W. Hertel, maybe they can share a 5x5 cell together.

    Well now, where are the people who say Hertel is a good guy now ? the facts and records are all public against them now !

    They are in the Bankrupt arena and have failed and failed and failed to pay millions in loans and wages. Hertel & Fowler thought they could hide the ill gotten monies they have been stealing from us and banks.

    Now they have Court ordered Civil Judgments, Liens and Bank Loans they failed to pay not to mention the bounced payroll checks. Bye, Bye RON HERTEL and ROBERT FOLWLER
    your lying, cheating and scams are coming to a final end. Get ready for a nice Prison Cell...

    Your all correct, yesterday i spent most of the day with several victims of Hertel's State wide scam and fraud. We all shared our information, WOW did we learn what a major scam and theft ring of Real Estate Con Men, Ron Hertel and Robert Fowler.

    They have massive liens all over the State against there projects for failure to pay the subcontractors, Suppliers, Vendors, Cleaning Staff to Carpet Installers. They hide monies in there ACI Leased Planes and Jets in San Luis Obispo to Ventura to a yacht built in Florida to his classic and high end Cars. Talk about Con Men and Crooks.

    We also learned of the many Law Suits Pending and more being filed as we speak all against Hertel. These guys are one major Ponzi Scam Artist of a firm. If you too are a victim of the RW Hertel Fraud get a Lawyer and sue before they go under...

Oh they can run but they can NOT hide, the Gov't is going to get them...then it will be the investors and others they have cheated. Shannon Bennett go for the Gold !

    I appreciate all the information on these crooks of Hertel and Fowler. I met with an Lawyer today concerning them on a fraud matter. The Law Firm is preparing a case and i may join in on it.

    What was interesting is the Hertel Brothers seem to preparing themselves for a Bankruptcy of all their holdings all while apparently secretly concealing monies most of which is borrowed. The Department of Justice apparently is reviewing thousands of documents for a Bank and Financial Fraud case. As I am a victim of Hertel frauds and his ongoing failure to pay his bills. I expect as the Lawyer told me today Hertel and Fowler are in some very serious Legal issues.

    I saw a story yesterday issued by the State that RW Hertel & Sons has been caught using illegal and undocumented workers on his projects. That might be why he has so many defective homes all over the State.

    I also see he has not even paid his insurance bills so he is in deep poop !

    Yes, I saw the home today listed by Coldwell Banker, listed for $659K Hertel's VP Robert Fowler had to buy it back due to massive defects including High Levels of Highly Dangerous MOLD. The home is still ripe with Mold and defects. Fowler is trying to sell it and he is NOT disclosing the Mold or Defects. It is another work of crap. So the Realty Board members are spreading the word stay away from Hertel homes they are DEFECTIVE and MOLD Laced.

    Yes, their are many other Law Suits against Hertel and the one you mention is against RW Hertel & Sons aka The Woodlands Project dba under Atascadero Ventures, LLC it is over Negligent Development, Fraud, Grand Theft of Land, Wilfull Misconduct etc. Hertel stole vacant land and failed to pay for it and tried to develop it and sell it and they got caught.

    Once again they are being sued Case CV-071167 but this time Adam Daner is not handling the case Hertel is going broke so once again he filed a false claim with his Insurance company hoping they will take care of it, only problem the insurance company admits Hertel has so many false claims and still has failed to pay for the many damages they owe the Insurance firm. But Zimmerman hired by the insurance firm is again on this one. Yes, Fowler is selling the home he had to buy back in Rancho Obispo from Jane Morton due to Mold and defects because he can not afford to keep scamming people so look for Coldwell Banker to get a sign up this week 1771 Singletree Ct. San Luis Obispo, CA another Hertel crappy home. The ACI information is correct. HF Group, L.P. is converting out but HFL Express, LLC is still an enity.

    Those who do have information on RW Hertel & Sons, et al over Financial Crimes and or Money Laundering notify your local IRS or FBI office. An indepth probe is ongoing.
    Violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, 31 U.S.C. 5324 or C.F.R. 103.63 are crimes.

    Tax Evasion, Money Laundering, Bank Fraud etc. are all of interest to the Gov't. (SAR) Suspicious Activity Reports are being done as we speak. Go to www.FinCEN.gov to learn more and report your information on Hertel and his associates and LLC's. The Financial crimes Network is seeking those who violate the Law.

    Do any of you know where Ron Hertel is keeping his expensive high end car collection ?
    I am told some are concealed in the garages in his Santa Margarita homes that he can not sell if so does any one know the address ? I am pursuing judgments against him and want to find as many of his assets to seize as possible. I will send some one to check out the jets at ACI.

    But anyone with other information on his concealed assets let us know. We were not aware of his fetish for small children until we reviewed his many divorce papers and the allegations in them i guess he is a really deviant and maladaptive wacko.

Some former Hertel employee's are turning States Witness and providing inside information valuable to the Hertel Scams. I do not know of ACI but will have our firms PI's get on it. You can get copies of the file and or contact the Lawyers going after Hertel on his Unfair Dealings and Fraudulent financial Scams including bogus investments and Insurance Fraud.

    Maybe he can sell all of his private jets that he hides though his various LLCs with Aviation Consultants, Inc. at San Luis Obispo Airport (acijet.com). N48HF (HF=Hertel Family) Citation X $12, 000, 000 (MACH MCKENZIE LLC); N43HF Citation Excel $11, 000, 000 (MACH CHASERS LLC); N47HF Citation Excel $10, 500, 000 (APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES FLIGHT INC; N56HX (HX=Hertel Family Express Group) $8, 500, 000(HF EXPRESS GP); N56HX $8, 500, 000(HF EXPRESS GP. That's over fifty million dollars he has stashed away with his friends at ACI. With that kind of hidden wealth you would think he could pay, at the very least, his Service Master bills. I'm sure this is only the very tip of the iceberg of hidden assets. Unravelling Aviation Consultants, Inc. will be a great start. That's where our money is.

    Interesting to note that Hertel Crime Partner Robert JS Fowler has more liens and more past due loans he is now selling the Mold Laced, Defective Ridden Home he built and then had to buy back due to Mold and Defects. The home is located at 1769/1771 Singletree Ct., San Luis Obispo, CA in the now famous Hertel leaking development called RANCHO OBISPO he thought he could sneak out of town. But the honest brokers are all too familiar with his crappy homes. Buyer Beware Hertel homes leak and Fowler is trying to get out of dodge so I think his asking is $650K and i would NOT give you $ 6.50 for it.

    I checked with the San Luis Obispo, CA County Clerks office and there are many Mechanics Liens against Hertel and according to Scott Bales Hertel in fact has failed to pay Service Master whom they hired to remove Toxic Mold from several of Hertel's Rancho Obispo Homes so no doubt Hertel is in some poop !

    However if you have financial information on his Georgia, Florida, Oregon dealings and any information on Money Laundering and Illegal activities could you be so kind to email me or post it so that i can have my investigators follow the Money as they say. This is for a matter of utmost important to gather evidence for a Criminal matter. Ronwald W. Hertel, Robert JS Fowler, Willaim Zech ( Harvard Law ) and Thomas Habbick.

    Saw your request here is what we know, and more is coming in each week on the Hertel clan or con artist's.

    As you seem to know Hertel sued in here in Federal Court case file #07-61031 over a $ 14, 000,000.00 Yacht against several people now he is in bed with MRDF his daddy is Ron L Hertel founder of the Calif firm now known as RW Hertel & Sons, Inc. who started this suit that being son Ronald W. Hertel.

    Ron W. Hertel is a con man and we will fedex you all the records on Tuesday. He also has another con suit in a federal Court in Calif. Case # [protected] with Arch Specialty Ins. a fraud case as well. Ron W Hertel's main parnter is Robert JS Fowler together they do many con's and scams. One is Verdot Group L-Partnership as a winery with Hertel Group LLC. His dad Ron L. Hertel is using a charity to conceal stolen and laundered assets, ( VCCF) Ventura County Community Foundation Fed ID # [protected]

    Hertel's collect many expensive cars etc. all will be in the packet next week. I am told some investigators are going to get footage of him next week under oath so we can get it as well good job exposing these con men. Here in Florida they use the name R.W.H. Properties, LLC daddy ron is the alleged Manager. The California Board of Equalization number for the winery called 5 Mile Bridge is BOE# [protected] i do hope the investigations are looking at the Yacht scam as well.
