His Cash Flow, Inc. was raided and shut down by the FBI, IRS, and USPS on 5/9/97 according to the Orlando Sentinel. The paper said the company had been charged with racketeering and that it was being investigated by the Florida Attorney General for deceptive advertising and unfair business practices based on more than 50 complaints about inability to get refunds.
The Wisconsin State Bureau of Consumer Protection published a Guide for Wisconsin TV stations, which lists several questionable infomercials, among them those of William McCorkle, a/k/a Cash Flow, Inc. and Fortunes in Foreclosures. Tom Brokaw did a Fleecing of America piece on McCorkle on 9/8/98. NBC TV Dateline did another longer piece on 5/19/99. It revealed that McCorkle lied about his background, used actors and friends to make false testimonials in his infomercials, rejected all deals brought to him by at least one of his customers, and rented for only a few hours the executive jet and yacht which appeared in his infomercial with his name painted on them.
A federal grand jury in Orlando indicted McCorkle and his wife on 90 counts of fraud, telemarketing conspiracy, and money laundering on 6/21/98. The indictment accused him and his associates of defrauding people out of $28 million including refusing to give refunds, failing to provide money for deals found by customers, and misleading customers about his true net worth. McCorkle's lawyer, F. Lee Bailey, argued that the refund pledge was mere puffing that was never intended to be taken at face value.
McCorkle and his wife Chantal were convicted of fraud and money laundering and are in jail awaiting sentencing. They got 24 years. They already forfeited their home, four cars, and $7 million in cash seized in a raid in May of 1997. The FL Attorney General's office says they have several similar investigations in progress at their Orlando office.

Clearly, I do not need to go on any further.
For obvious reasons I do not recommend any of his past information. You can find plenty of good honest information in regards to real estate if you just look hard enough. If you are interested in investing in real estate then read the following paragraph:
