Exclusive: Walter Ng will plead guilty to fraud

There's some discouraging news for people who invested with Walter Ng and sons -- the U.S. Department of Justice Wednesday notified investors that "the government and defense counsel for the Ngs have reached a resolution to these charges and anticipate that the defendants will plead guilty on November 6, 2013."

Those charges involve the relatively minor "Structuring transactions for the purpose of evading a reporting requirement." The government allowed the statute of limitations to run out on more serious charges.

The notice to investors concludes, "With regards to restitution, the government does not expect to recover any loss amounts in this case."

The government still has a civil action against Walter and Kelly Ng. Documents state, "Separate from the charges filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office; please note that the Securities and Exchange Commission has charged Walter and Kelly Ng by Complaint with fraud-related securities violations for their activities involving RE Loans and Mortgage Fund 08."
