Earlier this week, New Jersey property investor and “Flipping NJ” founder Cesar Pina was arrested for wire fraud and released on a $1 million secured bond and electronic ankle monitoring after appearing in a Newark federal court.

Documents reveal that the radio host and his former partner are being investigated for seminars they held across the country, in which they are accused of using to lure in and defraud potential investors. Envy is being accused of using his social media reach to attract people with high investment returns but ultimately milking investors out of millions of dollars.

Envy addressed the fraud allegations on air, saying, “Let me explain some things…so Cesar and myself did seminars. Now, the reason I did these seminars is because I wanted to uplift my community. I wanted to teach my community about real estate. Things that I didn’t know when I was buying my first home. So I did these seminars and brought industry professionals to all these seminars, whether it was real estate agents from different markets, contractors, money lenders. I even brought Auction.com to actually show people how to purchase houses online.”

He continued, “Now Cesar, if he took money, I wasn’t privy to it nor did I even know. But I do understand how people feel if they did give him money because I gave him a lot of money that I didn’t see a dollar of return.”
