San Diego telemarketer sentenced in real estate investment fraud

San Diego U.S. Attorney Karen P. Hewitt announced that Michael Alexander, who owned several San Diego telemarketing companies involved in a real estate investment fraud scam, was sentenced to serve 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to mail fraud and filing a tax return. Alexander was also ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez  to pay restitution of $1,799,580.78 to his victims of the fraud scheme and to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Alexander pleaded guilty two years ago to mail fraud and filing a false tax return using the Rose Fund, LLC to solicit money from investors. He then set up TRF Holdings, Inc., to capitalize the Rose Fund. The lead salesman Alexander hired was a convicted felon named William Wright.

This case was a joint investigation by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
