Lawyers for disgruntled investors in Point Center Financial, the Aliso Viejo company owned by Dan Harkey, husband of Assemblywoman Diane Harkey (R-Dana Point), have told their clients the trial is a go this morning.

The investors essentially allege that Dan Harkey lied to them when he sold them on funding developments pushed by campaign contributors to Diane Harkey . . . before those projects went south.

Diane Harkey claimed while first running for state office that she was a self-made woman, financing her campaigns with money she earned during her "six-figure" banking career. But it was later disclosed $16,000 in campaign funds came from three developers who received millions in loans from Point Center Financial.

After a few projects from some of the same developers blew up, leaving investors holding the bag, the Securities and Exchange Commission launched an investigation in 2009. The burned investors followed up by suing for fraud.

Numerous lawsuits had been filed against  Dan Harkey and Point Center Financial.  It is time for the TRUTH to be revealed.  No one is above the law, not even a politician like Diane Harkey.  You reap what you sow.


The investors that are suing are not "disgruntled."  They want JUSTICE.  


The first clue to flaky "investment" is the people you are dealing with are Republican Politicians.

If its fraud did any law enforcement investigate the ca first and make a descsion?


Another fraud everyone should be aware of is the Amway Tool Scam. Google "Stop The Amway Tool Scam Wordpress" for more information, and forward this information to every non-Distributor/IBO you know, so they don't get ripped off.

@paullucas714 As late as last spring, it appeared the SEC case was still open. The FBI was possibly involved. Don't see any state investigations.


@Textex Do you know the difference between a pyramid scheme and Amway The bigshots at Scamway pay high dollar political contributions
