Joe Simmons factious stories & lies he tells people to gain trust and to glamorize his pathetic way of living. Please protect yourself from fraud and their scams buy reading all points from 1 to 15. If you want to add to this list, we welcome you to comment on this blog

Let's compare Joe Simmons stories and lies in this section. If you have more to add, please comment in this blog.
  • Joe Simmons has been in jail several times dating back all the way to the 70’s.
  • Joe Simmons has never completed an honest transaction.
  • He has never built or developed any real estate property in his life.
If he claims otherwise - ask him to prove it by paying for your flight to the location of the property development (since he is multi-millionaire, he can pay for your flight) and physically speak to the people there and have him provide you a small client list to contact and verify his performance. But be careful as we discovered some of his family members may be in on it too. The best solution is to have a full background check done on Joe Simmons and/or have your lawyer do his duediligence thoroughly on any of these parties. (scroll down to view Joe Simmons’ convicted criminal history)

Joe Simmons and his wife Mary O’Brien claim to be born-again-Christians, is a member of the Christian Fellowship of West Palm Beach Florida, they are to be filthy rich and use their old age as an advantage to gain their victim’s trust. Trust us - they are far from being trustworthy people and far from what God stands for. Do not fall victim to this – this is what they feed on. Here are some of the lies and stories he will tell you to get you hooked to his stories so he can move to the next level of his con.

1. Joe Simmons and his wife Mary O’Brien claim to be multi-millionaires with a lifestyle that is beyond belief – really…it is “beyond belief”

These two work together on victims and claim to be multi-millionaires but to our information Joe Simmons is far from what he claims to be because he has a checking account where his pension check is deposited every month. A “multi-millionaire” does not need a pension check deposited monthly or have unpaid tax liens against him. With this facade and mask, the husband and wife con-team places dollar-signs in your eyes to make it appear that they have the funds to do the deal.

2. Joe Simmons lists of tax liens -- but he is a multi-millionaire, why pay taxes?

A multi-millionaire would not have these kinds of judgments against them. Anyone with this amount of money would resolve these liens with the government. If Joe Simmons is a prominent multi-millionaire, ask him prove it to you and your group, but make sure the information is bonafide as he could have obtained it from another source he scammed from. Below are liens we discovered when doing our research and searching the web.
  • Internal Revenue Service, creditor, Joe E. Simmons, debtor, filed in the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office on July 8, 1992. This federal tax lien sought to collect nearly $4,900 in unpaid federal income taxes for the 1990 tax year.
  • Utah State Tax Commission v. Joe E. Simmons, filed in the Salt Lake County District Court on September 8, 1992. This state tax lien was issued in the amount of $3,308.87 for unpaid state income taxes in the 1987 calendar year.
  • Utah State Tax Commission v. Joe E. Simmons, filed in Salt Lake County District Court on May 4, 1993. This state tax lien was issued in the amount of $1,828.34 for unpaid state income taxes in the 1989 calendar year.
  • Internal Revenue Service, creditor, Joe E. Simmons, debtor, filed in the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office on September 22, 1994. This federal tax lien sought to collect $4,930 in unpaid federal income taxes for the 1991, 1992 and 1993 tax years.
  • Internal Revenue Service, creditor, Joe E. Simmons, debtor, filed in the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office on September 22, 1994. This federal tax lien sought to collect nearly $24,000 in unpaid federal income taxes for the 1983, 1986 and 1989 tax years.
  • Internal Revenue Service, creditor, Joe E. Simmons, debtor, filed in the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office on November 2, 1994. This federal tax lien sought to collect more than $6,400 in unpaid federal income taxes for the 1987 and 1988 tax years, and appears to have been re-issued after
  • Joseph Simmons, debtor, Internal Revenue Service, creditor, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court civil judgment index Book 9777, page 744 on May 5, 1997. This tax lien was in the amount of $47,829, for unpaid federal income taxes for the 1983 and 1985-1993 tax years.
  • Joseph Simmons, debtor, Internal Revenue Service, creditor, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court civil judgment index Book 12337, page 294 on February 27, 2001. This tax lien was in the amount of $9,050, for unpaid federal income taxes for the 1998 and 1999 tax years.
  • Joseph Simmons, debtor, Internal Revenue Service, creditor, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court civil judgment index Book 17430, page 1077 on August 23, 2004. This tax lien was in the amount of $19,358 for unpaid federal income taxes for the 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2001 tax years.
  • Internal Revenue Service, creditor, Joe E. Simmons, debtor, filed in the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office on July 9, 2004. This federal tax lien sought to collect more than $1,200 in unpaid federal income taxes for the 1992 and 1993 tax years. The lien was released on March 27, 2005.
3. Joe Simmons claims to own many shopping malls and plazas across United States and has millions of dollars to buy more and more…

Joe Simmons claims to own many shopping malls across Unites States, which is ALL false and is a complete outright lie. He has also claimed that he owns over 2 million square feet of shopping malls. If this were true – he would own the majority of the shopping malls in North America. This would means he can be in the Guinness Book of World Records for owning so much shopping malls and plazas – maybe someone should contact the media to let them know that we have found the World’s Largest Shopping Mall owner. They can do a story on him and film his shopping mall locations with Joe Simmons explaining how he created his empire of malls and plazas. If this sounds too good to be true, it defiantly is when it comes to this liar named Joe E. Simmons.

4. Joe Simmons was a Banker???? We would like to know which one so we all can do a reference check on his banking background and see if he won any employee of the year awards

It gets better - At some point he will claim to be a banker or have been in the banking business. All the banking he has done is stealing from one. He actually got federal charges against him for falsely applying for a loan and creating fake documents to get money from a federal bank. The only bank he has managed to connect himself with is a sperm bank. To add sugar on that – in one of his legal cases, another con-man, who was working with Simmons at that time, told the Judge how Joe Simmons taught him to falsely obtain and scam funds from a bank.

5. Joe Simmons grandchild has cancer and one of his daughter is always having a baby

According to him, he has kids or grandkids with cancer, and a daughter that seems to be having babies every few months or so - as he is always visiting a daughter who “just had her baby”. Again a part of his cons because at this point everything coming out of Joe Simmons mouth is a lie. If his mouth is moving it is a lie, especially after hearing all the victims stories of his cons.

6. Joe Simmons got his millions from a Peach Farm his family owns in Gerogia, which he sold and now needs to invest all of his millions of dollars

This is far from true and what is true is he uses this story to put glitter in your eyes to heighten his cons. He has never done anything in his life that would give him that status or any status as an honest businessman. I don’t think he has ever legitimately owned anything that is of that greatness.

7. Joe Simmons does this all for the good of God and not for the profit

When we hear all the religious stuff that comes out of Joe Simmons’ mouth and how he uses religious faith like he is good and pure just disgusts us and gives honest religious followers a bad name. Again, just a part of his con game to lure you into giving him money for the good of God. Please do not give this man or anyone associated to him money. There are other honorable and legit charities out there that can use your support. Do not support Joe Simmons’ greedy lifestyle. Joe Simmons does this for his benefit and his profit. All of this will catch up to him and anyone who is involved in his schemes.

8. Joe Simmons is the largest land mass developer in the Bahamas plus, he also owns the Lighthouse Hotel and on top of this, he owns 2,500 acres of land in Andros Island. Move over Kerzner and Atlantis – Joe Simmons is coming to the Bahamas

This is false and is untrue, as we discovered, after we called the Lighthouse hotel and the authorities of the Bahamas. We think Joe Simmons didn’t mean to say that he, “owned the hotel and thousands of acres” what he meant to say is that he actually “owes the hotel thousands of dollars” on past due bills he had racked up. He may even say that he has strong ties in the Bahamas with the government, the police, etc. – according to Joe Simmons' stories, it was the government that graciously presented him the 2,500 acres of the land in Andros “as a gift”.

He will also say that he frequently visits the Bahamas for business, which is false. Joe Simmons has not been in the Bahamas since 2008 as we found out through our research. We wish he would visit the Bahamas because Joe Simmons has many anxious authorities waiting upon his arrival to deal with the defrauding of the Bahamian people.

9. Joe Simmons goes to the Bahamas and invests his millions of dollars not for profit, but for the Church and God

He tells this lie over and over again that he has put millions of dollars into the USA and the Bahamas for non-profit and for the church. He is so full of lies that when we called there, we discovered that he had defrauded a Reverend N. Hamilton in Andros island out of funds Joe Simmons was “supposed to give” to the church. But instead for the good of God and non-profit, Joe Simmons fraudulently wrote bad checks to the Reverend and leaving bad debts all over Andros Island.

10. Joe Simmons makes fraud checks from closed accounts at banks from the Bahamas and signs it under a different name “John Masters”

This old man will not stop – the Bahamian Banks, Bahamas Investment Board, The Central Bank, and authorities in the USA and in the Bahamas are aware of Joe Simmons’ intentions with frauding the people of the Bahamas and the USA. If Joe Simmons or Mary Simmons (Mary O.Brien) give you a check – you have the right to verify funds with that bank. Also, double check the signature of that check as he sometime will sign checks using the name “John Maters”.

The checks are usually drawn on an account that has either been: 1.) Closed, 2.) not sufficient funds; and 3.) in a location where it is difficult to access and is far from where he is doing his cons. eg.) when the con in is the USA he will provide a Bahamian check and vice versa.

11. Joe Simmons claims to be a prominent and honest businessman and real estate developer

Joe Simmons has never built anything in his life. The only thing he ever created is a trail of destruction, lies, a fake life, deceived and stole hardworking people’s money! He claims to be a developer in Bahamas and the USA for many years, buy he has never built or developed real estate in the USA or in the Bahamas.

12. Joe Simmons Claims to have had tea with Martin Luther King and gave funds to support him when he was down and out

Of course we can never verify this because he is past away - bless his soul. We believe this is false because it is so ludicrous and outrageous, considering all his other lies and false stories that he has told.

13. Joe Simmons Real Estate Con (transaction) from (a) to (d)

(a) do a Sales Contract

(b) 90 days business closing date

(c) gives a check to be held in escrow, which can only process on the closing date (he will not release funds prior to that)

(d) adds many hoops that need to be jumped through before closing so he can get out of the contract

Now at this point, within the 90 days - Joe Simmons take the Sales Contract and presents it to other potential investors in the land, tells lies about himself to gain trust and gets money directly from them (for your property he does not own), then takes the funds and puts it directly into his pockets.

Close to the closing date, he uses one of the excuses in (d) to get out of the contract so he is not bond to it.

Now he has the investors moneys, dream of this great development that he is going to build but then nothing happens except the investors are now out of their money and you have people coming after you and your property.

Mr Simmons then changes his numbers and makes it very difficult for the investors to get a hold of him. We know of approx 25 of these types of victim in the last 4-5 months.

14. Joe Simmons & Mary O’Brien accepts checks, Visa, Mastercard and cash…all of your cash and your identity too.

Last year he was caught with stealing one of his business partners’ identity and racked up over $70,000 USD of debt for this identity and he will do it again.

Do not give Joe Simmons any type of information or leave any personal information where he can get his hands on it. In the past he has used other peoples’ information to obtain credit cards in his name to spend on his so called multi-millionare lifestyle.

15. Practice makes Perfect is how Joe Simmons does it
You may ask yourself why someone would give Joe Simmons money. The answer to this is he has been doing this for over 50 years.

Now he uses the name Bob Warren

Thank you for this web site ...it provides an extremely valuable service to the public. Joe Simmons aka Bob Warren has been attempting to purchase retail strip malls in Salt Lake City. Claims to have buyers ready for relinquished property owned by Chase AAA Shopping Centers Inc (6M square feet in Florida and the Southeast). In his mandatory Addendum #1 he attempts to tie up the property for six months and more for his fraudulent purposes...scamming and skimming. He is extremely credible and knowledgeable about the process of purchasing commercial real estate but any money he has is
ill gotten gain. If his mouth is moving he is lying. It is
incredible that he is still in business after fifty years at age 83. He has attempted to scam us twice...in 1985 and 2011.
Fortunately we stopped him both times. It's unfortunate that our law enforcement officials can't stop the likes of Joe Ed Simmons.
