|TJ Waconia fraudsters say goodbye to family after federal sentencing|
Jim Watkins fled the state of Minnesota and sought shelter in Texas. It is not known why Texas, it is not known with who or where exactly he lives in Texas, nor does it matter. The fact is he is in DFW area and he is promoting himself as a real estate investor and mentor. Anyone notice lots of blogging about houses? The purchasing and selling of, the valuations of, the borrowing against,the subsidizing of... yup, real estate might be the only topic Jim Watkins-Anti-Johnny-Jordan Hawkman can dissect. NOT that everything he has written has been truthful and accurate. He just puts so much up there to make it look like it must be real.

Jim Watkins has two friends who are currently taking a federally subsidized vacation. For many, many years. Yes, they are in federal prison. One prisoner, Thomas Balko, is the self-proclaimed good, close buddy to Jim Watkins. The other prisoner, Jon Helgason, is apparently, according to Jim Watkins, less of a friend and more of just a business associate and acquaintance. These two guys had a company called TJ Waconia and were found guilty of boat loads of real estate fraud, mortgage fraud, investment fraud, whatever kind of fraud you want to call it involving houses, real estate transactions and defrauding investors.
