Yes, downtown Cincinnati businessman (and I’m using that term loosely) and the guy who took over the once proud Downtowner newspaper and ran it into the ground, Roger Ach, is back in the news.
For the second time since 2003, Ach finds his East Walnut Hills Mansion foreclosed on and to be sold at public auction.
A lot of you are getting tired of me “pounding” poor Roger. You see, I read the comments. Let me explain why I won’t let this go.
I know a few people he’s had business deals with – all hard working, good people – just like Doug Taylor who’s fighting Ach and good for him. You see, Ach doesn’t see good – he only sees dollar signs and ways to get money from people.
Ach is the kind of guy who would buy two custom-made suits and wouldn’t bother to pay the store where he got them. Seriously. He goes to count on that next month. He owes the store close to three thousand dollars.
With all the court papers filed against him and things written on the internet and from what I know firsthand, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Ach has become known as a rip-off artist, taking hard earned money from folks and never looking back.
If wishing could make it so, once his mansion is sold, it would be great if some of those employees he never paid could finally get their paychecks.
The thing is, Roger has been through this before. He kept his mansion the last time and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if somehow he gets off the hook again. Like a cat, Ach seems to have nine lives. He always finds a way back.
People need to know of his dealings. People need to be educated on him. People need to know the kind of person they are dealing with – and that’s why this man deserves to be world famous.
To Cincinnati and the rest of the world – take a look at the photo at the top of this post. Take a good hard look.
