Prolific Con-Man Christian Andrews AKA Drew Christian Donovan AKA Jimmy Wayne Jackson Has Been Caught  #dtla #realestate #fraud

donovan-in-jail-j-c-300REAL ESTATE NEWS ¬†(September 11, 2017)¬†Los Angeles, CA ¬†‚ÄĒ ¬†Thanks to the smart readers of the L.A. Loft Blog, and due to the quick work of the San Diego Police Department, swindler Drew Donovan has been captured before he can destroy the finances of any more innocent victims. ¬†After wreaking havoc on the financial welfare of anyone whom he could get ahold of, including local families with children, disabled persons, even inflicting malevolent damage to sophisticated real estate industry professionals and homeowners in Los Angeles, the bad guy is finally off the street.

The L.A. Loft Blog first covered¬†in May of 2017 the story about the fake philanthropist then going by the name Christian Andrews, taking several Los Angeles area locals by offering to pay off all of their bills, give them new cars, even million-dollar homes such as Downtown lofts and Solaire luxury high-rise condos in Koreatown. His foray into real estate fraud is what brought him down, as he tangled with the wrong group of savvy people. With powerful communication and hard work, the LA Loft Blog and its readers have toppled LA’s dangerous money menace.

The LA Loft Blog first became aware of the charlatan when he contacted our office requesting assistance with a Downtown loft purchase.  After receiving fake proof of funds, fake earnest money deposit initiation receipts and other phony financial instruments, the L.A. Loft Blog learned that the trickster has defrauded more than 100 individuals, families, mothers, children, elderly, disabled out of more than $1,000,000 in the Greater L.A. Area (see the original story).

Arrested ¬†— ¬†Going by the fake name Christian Andrews, and carrying a California driver license that says Drew Christian Donovan, the supremely skilled deceiver has this week been outwitted by the caring community of L.A. Loft Blog readers and writers. When the scammer tried to lure them into one of his “free real estate” traps, real estate agent Norma Fernandez and her quick-witted client Joshua Alvarez checked the L.A. Loft Blog, which confirmed their suspicions. They wasted no time calling police. ¬†San Diego Police Department responded quickly, checked diligently, and then took cheater Donovan into custody on existing felony warrants for violating his probation and writing big, bad checks.

To help keep this menace locked away for a long time, those with any information may share it with police and with the L.A. Loft Blog at report@laloftblog.com or call (213) 880-9910.

REAL ESTATE NEWS ¬†(September 4, 2017)¬†Los Angeles, CA ¬†‚ÄĒ ¬†The L.A. Loft Blog reported in May of 2017 about pretend rich guy Christian Andrews conning many Los Angeles area locals by offering to pay their bills, give them cars, even million-dollar real estate such as Downtown lofts and Solaire luxury high-rise condominiums in Koreatown. The skilled liar with many names promises to help those who are deserving with millions out of his trust fund if they help him avoid his interfering parents. The truth is that the con-man’s parents are dead, and he is really only avoiding his earlier angry victims while spryly hurdling the slow wheels of justice as he cheats his way from small town to Greater Los Angeles.

By gaining sympathy over his made-up terminal cancer, and his bogus story that he wants to help those who are deserving, Jimmy Wayne skillfully leads caring individuals into the void, all but rendering victims into human ATM machines, mindless sex zombies or drug-fetching robots to give him their money, meds, identities and even more sinister. The preying monster seems to have something insidious in store for just about anyone whom he can catch in his finely crafted web.  #jimmywaynejackson #drewdonovan #christianandrews #fraud

The LA Loft Blog first became aware of the swindler when he contacted our office asking for help with a Downtown loft purchase.  After observing fake proof of funds, fake earnest money deposit initiation receipts and other fake instruments, the L.A. Loft Blog has learned that the perpetrator has defrauded more than 100 individuals, families, mothers, children, elderly, disabled out of more than $1,000,000 in the Greater Los Angeles Area (see the original story).

The Latest ¬†— ¬†Going by the fake name Christian Andrews, and carrying a California driver license that says Drew Christian Donovan, the supremely skilled deceiver has this week been outed as Holland, Michigan native Jimmy Wayne Jackson, long-time fraudster on a ¬†mega-extended super-spree of illegal deception using fake checks, sham real estate transactions, phony bank wire transfers, other people’s credit cards and stolen identities.

We have just been contacted by an old-family friend who informed us of the flimflam man’s true origin. He’s been at it a long, long time. Hometown victim Carol reports that she knew him a long time ago when he was 10-year-old Jimmy Wayne Jackson of Holland, MI, from a dysfunctional family living at a mobile home park. Years later, Carol would lose touch as Jimmy turned into an 18 year old college DJ in Grand Rapids and then a DJ in Florida. About 9 years ago in back in Holland, MI, the young fraudster‚Äôs mom had passed away, and Jimmy never new his birth father. Carol and Jimmy grew close, so she thought. But the friendship was mere trickery. Carol reports that Jimmy came back to his home town, claimed he came into lots of money, and wanted to give it to deserving people. He defrauded Carol and several of the local townspeople, causing tens of thousands in damages to Carol alone. Years later, Jimmy did it again, ripped his old friends off a third time, making yet another astonishing round to take advantage of the folks who cared for him the most by claiming that he had come back to make amends. For those who were religious, Jimmy would not hesitate to use God’s name to lie, and take advantage of their faith to bilk and milk them for every penny. Carol said that two more home-town victims called her within the last year to report Jimmy’s latest thievery by false pretenses. His total estimated take is now more than $2 million.

Recovered evidence shows a pattern of fraud motivated by addictions

While his mugshot captures a glimpse of his true character, the perpetrator has not paid for his career of crime. He has told some that he served time, but this super-slippery and talented weasel has even been able to con “friends” into bailing him out, as his supreme charlatan skills have allowed him to evade the law virtually 100%. ¬†He uses advanced real estate knowledge and banking know-how to trick old friends — even to outwit sophisticated business persons. The man with many names is at large and actively taking from innocent individuals and families. His motives are too torrid and depraved to detail on a real estate blog, but evidence suggests that the bad guy’s impetus may involve something weird like¬†Ambien sex addiction, the sad combination that took down golf-great Tiger Woods. All victims are encouraged to immediately contact law enforcement and also to contact the L.A. Loft Blog with further information. The sooner we can get this crafty parasite back into an orange jumpsuit and iron bars, the safer America will be.
