A new piece of investigative reporting is unveiling a real estate flipping scheme that's stolen money from dozens of people. The scheme centers around Cesar Pena, who they describe as a social media influencer known for his seminars about real estate. In the report, they claim that Pena was taking money from investors with the promise of quick massive gains and then never paying them back. They cite at least 12 different lawsuits filed against him and interview two of the victims of his scam.
That's where DJ Envy gets involved. Envy has appeared alongside Pena at numerous talks before and pictures of the two together made the rounds on social media. While many suspected that he was part of the scheme as a result of their association, his lawyer claims that he is also a victim. "DJ Envy also gave $500k as an investment, which he has not received back yet." The report also claims that Pena was collecting investments for properties that he never owned or had already sold. The lawsuits filed against him already amount to more than $10 million. Check out the full report below,
