Has anyone invested with Matt Skinner? The company was "Real People Real Returns" then it changed to "Empire West Investments" now. I have heard that my investment in Longacre Estates is tied up in court. I haven't heard any communication from him on the status, what's going on, etc. Texts, phone calls, emails. It is all very quiet. Just wondering if anyone has had the same experience. TIA.

Centerpoint -- sorry your investment isn't working out.

If there is a lawsuit and if it is in Federal court, you can check the status of a lawsuit here. It is a free docketing tool provided by the federal court system.

If it is filed locally, you may have a harder time finding out, but a good place to start is the clerk of courts in the county where the property is located.

Let us know how it goes.

I am also thinking about investing with Matt Skinner. If anyone has invested with him, please let me know if you had any problems with your investments. Were you able to get a good return and your principle back from him? Thanks for any advice.

Yes, I have and its not an experience I am going to repeat. Reluctant to give details, investment may turn out fine but journey is not pleasant. EW doesn't seem to be very professionally managed and way below my expectations.

Matt Skinner Investments, Empire West Investments, Empire West Equities, Thrive Capital, Twelvstone Capital, and every other entity Matt Skinner hides behind is a ponzi scheme. Their organization wilfully refuses to provided quarterly updates to their investors as well as any communication at all. He purposefully refuses calls, emails, sms from his investors. And Matt Skinner lives a lavish lifestyle with a brand new Aston Martin. Empire West Investments failed to pay their entire staff in January 2020 ahead of having to pay investor dividends because Matt Skinner has failed to bring in new money for the past 8 months. He has burned through his investors money where he promises 22% returns, and in an attempt to try and have enough funds to pay his quarterly dividends, he was financially tapped and failed to pay more than 8 of his staff. There are numerous lawsuits against Matt Skinner personally and against his entities. BEWARE of doing any business with this fraud.

While I've heard he has always ended up paying investors, it's always a struggle for him every quarter and I believe he is running out of the ability to get new money in in order to pay for the old money.
