Fort Collins Real Estate Investment Scam Targets Church and AA Members

Niles Stansfield, a Fort Collins real estate agent, has been accused of running a Texas real estate investment scam that allegedly promised high returns to investors. Through his Fort Lyon Farms, Inc., Stansfield is said to have taken in money from 16 victims, which totaled $865,000. According to the allegation, Stansfield told investors that he would purchase water rights along a ditch near the Arkansas River to be sold to municipalities in Southern Colorado. Unfortunately, not much of that money was thought to have gone into the actual purchase of water rights. Members of Stansfield church and members of Alcoholics Anonymous are both said to have been targeted in this scam. Stansfield faces 15 counts of securities fraud along with several additional counts of theft. His trial had been delayed until this week due to a change in lawyers, as his new representation had to review the evidence in this complicated case. Meyer Wilson represents victims of Texas securities fraud in FINRA arbitration, mediation, and litigation.
