"I can't believe what has just happened" she said. "My father has just been convicted of something to do with his Real Estate Business, and they took him to jail" said Diane, a child of the accused. "We have no Idea what to do...Will you assist us?" "Absolutely" I replied, and at that moment I began to see what has happened to our society in the past 20 years that no logical person could have predicted.
Having known the Defendant Harry W. Blausey of Newark, Ohio for over 30 years, I began to reflect on the relationship that I had with this family and how they had been an instrumental part on the path that I would eventually take in life, as I too had lived in the small bedroom community outside of Columbus, Ohio called Newark, Ohio.
As I had graduated from Newark Senior High School and left Ohio to attend College at Brigham Young University, on a scholarship, I knew that there were differences in lifestyles and people, but I really believed that I could call Newark, Ohio my hometown, and be proud to say that as I spoke around the world, as I continue to do today.

The vigorous task at hand of reviewing the Blausey Case as it was outlined in the local papers and on the Internet was a maze in itself. One thing that I noticed was that there was very regular coverage by a news organization I was quite familiar with, The Newark Advocate, A Division of The organization I was quite familiar with
,. The Newark Advocate , is A Division of The Gannet Corporation, and the Owner of USA Today, whom I also have worked with.
The relationships that I have shared with the Blausey family and the personal knowledge of the man that is now sitting in the State of Ohio Correctional Facility is the reason I decided that this was one task that my company, my employees and my foundations could not pass up. Partially because I knew the Defendant, but mostly because the preliminary research reports I was receiving by my staff was beginning to reach the absurd.
I, as a member of the National Media, and also a National Motivational Speaker and Trainer on Real Estate Matters Worldwide, take this case, a case that is to no longer be a simple State of Ohio Criminal Case, but one that would quickly be thrust into the national media spotlight.
Upon review of the preliminary data, I learned the following:
This was one of the first reports of the story in the media:
Real Estate Agent Accused In Foreclosure Scheme
NEWARK, Ohio — Investigators on Friday filed an indictment against a real estate agent accused of using the mortgage crisis to target homeowners as part of a foreclosure scheme.
Licking County Sheriff's deputies said they were not sure how many people were victims in Harry Blausey's real estate dealings, 10TV's Andy Hirsch reported.
According to deputies, Blausey would offer to help people facing foreclosure as long as they rented a property from him.
However, deputies said that Blausey never took over mortgage payments. Meanwhile some of his properties were also facing foreclosure -- something his renters never knew, Hirsch reported.
Blausey was taken into custody on Friday after a year-long investigation, Hirsch reported.
Licking County Sheriff's Captain Bruce Myers said most victims would never know about the scheme until a bank or a lender notified them to leave their home.
"You've got people that are already down on their luck somewhat," Myers said. "They're having some financial problems. Then you've got a guy who comes along, takes advantage of them and makes it worse than it already is."
Deputies called the scam "unusual," but said the current economy played a factor in the case.
"I think it has created an environment for something like this to flourish in," Myers said. "I hope it doesn't become a trend."
Blausey, who faces 10 counts of grand theft, 14 counts of securing writings by deception, five counts of felony theft and one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activities, was expected to appear in court next week, Hirsch reported.
This report appeared on the local CBS Television Affiliate, WBNS 10 Television in Columbus, Ohio.
"What does it mean in the State of Ohio to "secure writings by deception" I was asked
, by my analysts at Western Capital, the company that I am currently the CEO and President. So we began to dig. Let’s learn a little more about the absurdity that wrongfully imprisoned a long standing member of the community, and personal friend of mine.
We were led on a month long maze that came to this conclusion: The only way we were going to get the true story was to fly into Ohio with our media investigative teams and begin to interview the supposed "Victims".
The results of our investigation are amazing. There is so much data to present to YOU, the American Public, that this will be a large task. The evidence will overwhelmingly show that Blausey was nothing more than a student of Carlton Sheets, Russ Whitney, Ron LeGrand, Trump University, and many other "International Gurus" who teach the business of real estate from a non-conventional aspect.
The local media and those closest to this case may now be seeing the error of their ways because of this preliminary outside third party investigation. You will see that the newspaper that has been covering this matter based in Newark, Ohio, The Newark Advocate, has now little to say about their reports. The Beat reporter Russell A. Zimmer, who was on this story from the beginning, was asked to sit down with us to do a recorded interview. He declined! The Civil Attorney on this case Carl McCoy was asked to do an interview with us, he accepted, and you will not believe what this man would say in 58 minutes. The Chief Trial Counsel for Blausey, Mark A. Serrott of Columbus, Ohio was contacted four times. The only time that he even responded was when we left a candid message on his voice mail about the trial and how it may effect his now pending request for a Judgeship in Ohio.
You will hear from many of the alleged victims of this matter
, You will then be able to compare the statements that they made to the police at the time of the investigation against Harry Blausey, and their statements made to our team one year later.
This is perhaps one of the most serious stories that we have ever covered; because a man was following the teachings of some of the world’s most respected Real Estate Investment Trainers... and now sits in prison in Hocking County, Ohio under the Direction of Warden Ed Banks.
There are thousands of documents and recordings to present to you. We are assembling a team to completely reassemble this case from the beginning with HD Video, Interviews and Documents that will not only show that Harry Blausey is truly innocent, but that this is a case where the judicial system SIMPLY BROKE DOWN.
You will see attorney billing statements that represent investigators that were used in this man’s trial, however, you will also hear from Counsel that there were NO OUTSIDE INVESTIGATORS used, but that yes, the family was charged and paid for these services. You will see how our request to access the trial file was responded to by Lead Counsel, Mark A. Serrott. If you or a loved one were involved in this case please send us your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org and your confidentiality is assured.
Stay tuned to this site for additional information on an assault that took place against Mr. Blausey at the Hocking County Correctional Facility in Ohio. We will present the reports and are attempting to gain a statement from Warden Ed Banks, or the Public Relations Office for the Ohio Department of Corrections in Columbus, Ohio
