Seal Beach Man Convicted for Elder Financial Fraud in Selling of Foreclosed Properties

John Wesley Martynec, 36, of Long Beach has been convicted today of stealing approximately $302,000 from his real estate investors by falsely promising to profitably resell foreclosed properties. He pleaded guilty to two counts of grand theft, one count of statements in connection with a purchase or sale of securities and the use of a scheme to defraud, one count of financial exploitation of an elder, and a sentencing enhancement for property loss exceeding $200,000. All are felonies.

Two of Martynec’s victims are elderly. Martynec promised them he would invest in foreclosed properties, which he would then re-sell at a profit. Although he took the investors’ funds, he never made any purchases.

Martynec faces a maximum of three years in state prison when he is sentenced this June. Whether he gets to keep his broker’s license will be up to the California Department of Real Estate.
