A real estate investment guru who hosted a FIRST BROADCASTING News Talk KFXR (CNN 1190)/DALLAS show and investing seminars was arrested in DALLAS on fraud and identity theft charges, the FBI said. CLIFFORD WAYNE ROBERTSON was taken into custody FRIDAY, accused of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft for allegedly trying to obtain financing since 2007 using someone else's personal information.
Earlier this year, WFAA-TV/DALLAS aired complaints from several people who claimed ROBERTSON bilked them out of their life savings.
"You've got a one-man wrecking crew here that is crossing the board on all types of criminal violations -- whether it be identity theft, mortgage fraud, investment fraud, Ponzi schemes," Assistant Special Agent in charge at the DALLAS office of the FBI MICHAEL ANDERSON told WFAA earlier this year. "Our response to that is he needs to be stopped."
If convicted, ROBERTSON faces up to 32 years in federal prison.
