Would it be a stretch to say that right here in Cincinnati, we have our very own little version of New York’s Bernie Madoff?
I’m referring to Roger Ach. Once again, there’s an allegation against him.
This time around, he’s being sued by a former business associate and friend (perhaps the “friend” part no longer applies) Chad Wick. Wick is stating that Ach never repaid a $50,000 loan from 1995. Click here to read about the allegation.
And this is the just the latest. We’ve written about Ach many times here. Click here to read the last one.
All these allegations: Is Ach really ripping people off right and left or is he simply misunderstood? I mean for the second time, his mansion in East Walnut Hills was put up for public auction because of lawsuits, and for the second time, Ach somehow got off the hook. Did he do this by clearing up a “misunderstanding?”
I’m playing around here, of course. I’m sure Ach saved his house yet again by doing something slippery. He’s not stupid—you have to give him that. He gets himself out of messes, but hopefully that’s coming to an end.
Those allegations—all that evidence is catching up with Ach. At this point, most sane people wouldn’t give him a nickel.
Unlike Madoff, who’s “allegations” finally caught up with him, Ach is still walking the streets in Cincinnati wearing his expensive suits. Madoff is now pacing around in his jail cell wearing his prison garb.
