"Thanks Don,  I have done a little research and it appears that the companies in several of the fraud cases tie back to Tom the III. also.  Just wanted to hear your thoughts. Thanks."

Thomas E. Coghill, Jr. is a liar, a thief, and a con man. In August of 2005, he pled guilty to two counts of fraud, and in March of 2006 was sentenced to 30 months in Federal Prison.

While operating no fewer than 8 companies in Virginia, he defrauded a Maryland lender and a Virginia lender out of 3 million dollars by forging documents, writing phony deeds of trust, securing debt with property owned by others, securing debt with property that had no equity, and shifting money from investor to investor in order to remain undetected.

Never buy a bike from a con-artist

I found this site as a result of trying to learn something about Fat Sand Bikes in Florida. I wanted to find out what I could about FSB because I was jacked around after initiating a transaction to purchase a $899 bicycle from them. I have cancelled that transaction and have lodged a Transaction Dispute with VISA. I have documented emails and phone calls pertaining to the incident and in short, this is the story:

While on the Oregon coast a couple weeks ago we saw a gentleman riding…

     In a rambling, disconnected 10 page letter to your author, Coghill declares his service to God, ("I have decided to serve God and his wants and needs and not mine") and revealing that he has now read the Bible "going on three times".  In the letter he lays out his plans for the future, including:

A Book for Hungry Children?

How about hungry investors who were duped by this conman? What is the title - How I Screwed My Best Friends and their Families ! This is totally sickening - I hope you, Don, can get him another sentence that keeps in jail. He should be forced to pay restitution for the rest of his life to all the people who lost so much needed money. I almost feel sorry for his family members, if there were any, who lost out also.

Tommy the Charitable Author!

Well, our boy is now planning on publishing a book!  I have been contacted by a publisher he solicited, who did a little research on Junior, and thought I might be interested in knowing that he is attempting to publish a book.   He has apparently written a book for would-be inventors, giving them the benefit of his real life experience.  In his opening letter to publishers, he states:
