Iamfacingforeclosure.com is dead. Casey Serin has pulled the plug.


Probably was the wife.

Anyone got any info?

Any predictions?

Anyone care?

I'll miss the kid. The embodiment of the housing bubble and crash. I can't wait to see him at the Senate hearings though...

Because of your SweetLink, you just became an unsecured creditor....

Better get to the back of the line, Keith

Meh, he was just some dude doing some cash back closes. There's thousands of others just like him. Maybe the majority were'nt stupid enough to buy what he bought, when he bought it, but there are still thousands just like him.

that's a shame, after he finally started making a little money off it.

Johnathan said...

You know...a few months ago I sent that boy warning about the wife...He paid me know mind...look at him now...They just do not make good women anymore. PERIOD...

Thank God someone pulled the plug! Casey really needs to focus on his life instead of the blog. Seems like a walking personality disorder, hopefully he will be open to getting some help.

It ended "Casey style", by taking all the money from advertisers, like Keith's for instance, and running with it.

Regarding the wife, no big surprise here since Russian women are one of the most materialistic and self absorbed people, always seeking an American sugar daddy to make it in life. For example, my wife worked with a Russian girl, married to an American idiot, who was banging all the guys in the office. She didn't even hide, going out for lunch everyday with man only, going out with them on weekends while the hubby traveled, etc. Colombian women are like that, too. If you are married to one, good luck!

I'm calling Bulls*%#.

I think the entire thing was/is a part of an ongoing scam. I think he was milking the negative press to drive traffic in order to sell links and advertisement. I would even bet his wife was in on it. (Who else took those goofy/staged pictures of him?)

We will see something else pop up from him. Maybe he had to redirect traffic in order to profit from his crimes.

I bet there is some other work at play...someone much smarter than him pulling the strings. Someone who knows how to make real money.

Book deal? Where is that? Does that become the only place you can find out how this story ends?

Someplace you have to pay money to find out will be the next we hear from him....

He finally starting making some money from his blog, $2000/month, and he shuts if down? Kind of dumb, no?

Anonymous said...

when all the debt collectors come aknocking,... he won't have time for his wife or blog!

I was wondering if he he showed on his website the other day.

He kept saying that he wasn't a criminal, but how can he say that he was honest if people on his blog told him to stop? i.e. he kept on going with that shell corporation of his, taking on more debt...

sc in dc said...

hasnt this happened like 5 times already? yawn.

Greg said...

Good riddance to bad rubbish...

It was all getting morbid once it became clear there was no way out for him.

Besides, the site made no sense once his last property was gone. He wasn't "facing foreclosure" any more, just a bankruptcy filing. And the whole premise of him somehow turning it into an educational site was a laugh. What exactly would someone "facing foreclosure" learn from him? How to take out additional unsecured (personal) loans? How to start a company, get a company loan, and use it for rent? How to self-incriminate and end up in prison? Real useful...

Ah, but it sure was "sweet" to watch the train wreck as it slowly unfolded, wasn't it.

Did anyone else read the scanned-in hand-written note he had posted on his site last week?

He agreed to have $2500 cash on the table by last Friday or he promised his wive and family that he would close blog forever and become a W-2 slave.

It's just funny.. as I understand it, the links he sold (last week) were supposed to be up for a month (3 more weeks). His very last act on the site was to scam people out of cash. Hopefully he's getting hauled off to jail, someone needs to smack some sense into that boy.

Anonymous said...

I'm bummed.
I wanted it to end with him going to jail. Now if Casey goes to jail we might never know, the web site meant we would know because he would be begging for Bail money the day after he got hauled in.

Did anyone keep a cache of his site?

Anonymous said...

Yeah it's fitting he stiffed his advertisers on the way out. He's a habitual liar and thief and I hope he goes to jail and I mean the kind of jail with hardcore gang members.

I'm glad he's gone. People who make stupid decisions should not be rewarded.

Hi All,

I fully intended™ to give you advanced warning of what I was up too™ but I had to™ many sweet™ deals in the works.

I will soon™ post a detailed account of what transpired leading up to the shutdown. Yes, as some of you will point out G™ is a bit pissed, and G's sister™ hasn't spoken too™ me since mid-March. I almost had to sleep in the Jetta™, but by shutting down the blog, I was able to negotiate sleeping in the shower stall for awhile™.

I am working with my network of highly trained professionals™ to get this going again (we are meeting at Macaroni Grill™ tonight to strategize), and I hope to be falling forward too™ even bigger things.

In the meantime, I am glad I drained my paypal account this morning and closed it permanently. I will still be looking for that $5,000 a month in sweet™ passive income™. It is certainly getting close.

You can still email me at serin.us.

Bye!

"Did anyone keep a cache of his site?"

You can find cached version of his pages on Google. Do a Google search for "site:iamfacingforeclosure.com" and then on the results page, click the Cached option for the link you want to see.

With all that is going on in the area of real estate fraud I will not be surprised to hear he is in trouble with the law and that he took the site down because of legal troubles.

Dumb haters, neither of them are from Russia.

Casey is too much of a force to be gone for good, so we'll see him again. Hopefully after the full 2 years in the penalty box to grow up.

I can see him out brokering sweet deals and putting some major action together. Hopefully he'll have someone else do the financial analysis for him, if Al Gore gets a second act how much more of a chance for someone likeable!

Casey: May all your deals be sweet and all your shots a full 2 onz until we meet again!

Can someone please explain why new home prices were cut by 10% in April? The government is saying that home prices are increasing while homebuilders are reporting losses.

Are the government reports subject to Sarbanes-Oxley rules? Does any independent entity audit the government figures for accuracy? Is there any reason for the homebuilders to want their stock price to go down? Why did Kara Homes go bankrupt - did they run out of land on which to build new homes?

Casey sighting!
Rumor has it that he is now on a tropical South American beach drinking a pina colada with some native girls, spending all that loot he stashed from his "rip off" of the banks. Bankrupt! Ya right!
Broke like a fox!

John Gage said...

*Sniff* I'll miss Casey. Now I'll never get the chance to offer him money to be with Galina. Oh well, there's always Caseypedia!

wine country dude said...

Lots and lots of people are saying KC is gone forever. I don't buy it. Makes me think of Richard Nixon in 1962--someone who is bright, a whore for attention and who is convinced that people have treated him badly, will always find a way to reinvent himself. With Nixon, it was a question of how many times one had to bury the metaphorical stake in his heart before he really, truly died. It will be the same with KC.

I don't know...I need more closure.
No pun intended.

Is there any truth to the matter that Casey Serin is currently running a million dollar Russian brides website? Supposedly, the brides to be are expensive but you can get a no-doc approval credit over the phone or online.

this sucks so bad. I cant even laugh at him anymore because apparently he was not listed in the internet archives (www.archive.org)... I wish at least one of us had the foresight to add him so we could all rejoice in fond memories and scornful laughter. Damn it, snowflake!

Like hell it's dead!!!

IamFacingForeclosure has more lives to live than Rocky movies.

The foreclosure debacle has yet to begin to come. Though I did see two "real estate auction" handmade signs on the drive home tonight. That's usually the level of the yard sale signs. When you see real estate auction signs on street corners that's the sign it's going to be in every neighborhood in the worst economic debacle the world has ever seen.

Someone want an apocalypse?!? It's coming full speed ahead.

he was embarrassing too many people: the university he went to; the short courses he took; the rich dad books; prbliz; the banks; the mortgage folks; etc...

I was wondering on my ride home today: "did somebody give him a few million to shut down?"

He had a poll: "should I pay back cashcall?" the majority said "no! declare bankruptcy."

If americans start to tell their creditors to "f**k off," what's going to happen to america? i.e. what happens when the little guy starts using the big guy instead of the other way around?

folks, this is starting to get fun! is this culture crashing or what?

AS CASEY WAS FOND OF SAYING "IT'S ALL GOOD!"

-Except for the holders of his property loans
-Except for the banks who had his personal loans
-Except for the credit card companies he owes money to
-Except for cash call
-Except for his advertisers
-Except for others he had agreements with
-Except for his wife

He needs some jail time or he'll just do it again.

Advertisers: Feel free to cancel your PayPal subscription. I will be issuing pro-rated refunds this week.

Does anyone here really believes that Casey will be refunding the money to advertisers?

Anonymous said...

One of the most interesting things to me about this particular blog is the hostility every time Keith posts something about Casey. There are always complaints that nobody cares, that Keith talks too much about casey...but how many more posts have there been about, say, "the corrupt David Learah?" People don't seem to get as worked up about Keith's slightly obsessive grip on the topic.

Based on this, I can only conclude that there is something about Casey that makes certain people profoundly uneasy...yet I can't quite put my finger on exactly why that is. Personally, I find the entire Casey phenomenon fascinating. First of all, rarely if ever does a person open himself up financially like that in public...that in itself is fascinating. Secondly, he is an extreme example of what "the system" allows to slime through...and what the authorities *still* have taken no action to punish or indict. Thirdly, to watch Casey is to get a real-time window into the beating, bloody heart of the bubble in all it's grotesque glory...a blow-by-blow look at the issues and abstract themes discussed here and on other less visceral real estate collapse blogs. Finally, every major trend needs a living human symbol, whether it be Tim Leary with his wraparound grin as the face of LSD, the hideous pets.com sock-puppet, or Casey's "look, I'm clean-cut, so you can lend me money" facade. It's all good.

to me it's the empty wisdom that comes from a charasmatic person!

i.e. his looks and personality draw you in but it a mirage.

to think that a human being is a marage is discomforting.

HI TIMELINE GUY!!!!
EN waz looking for you for the talk cast.
Please check in with da' Alpha Dawg.

Saldek said...

If you go to the page now, it just says "I'm sorry". However, looking at the HTML comments shows some additional information.

In a nutshell:

"I'm very sorry to end like this. I wish I could say a lot more, but it all came down to choosing between my wife and this blog. As much as I resented having to make this choice, I love my wife and am trying to do the right thing. May God help me move on and help us rebuild our lives."

Zoe said...

If you look at the page source it says a lot more.
