This fake navy seal got a 4-year prison sentence for fraud

To our knowledge Williams has only spent three months in jail. But in May 2017 the courts sentenced another man who falsely claimed to be a Navy SEAL to four years in prison for theft and faking paperwork. Punishment does occasionally catch up with criminals.

In the attached document “US Navy Response re Shaun R Williams 16-185”, Captain, U.S. Navy  JD Thorleifson affirms that Shaun Williams is not and was never a Navy SEAL. See also the same finding from SEAL Team One Don Shipley.

Letter to Judge regarding violation of restraining order

After spending about 100 days in the county jail, in June 2016 Williams wrote the following letter to Jefferson County Judge Carpenter:

Your Honor,
I wanted you to personally know my repenting and sympathies to and through my mother which by a court order is allowed for my hateful actions and arguments over money which I explained and I am completely opposed to acting like that especially after the kind of dedication of leadership so many have shared with me.
My guilt of being a jerk is in someway connected to this change. though now I am thankful for the beginning of wisdom of the protection order substance to follow and ethical and respectful behavior to treat all persons.
I do not want to feel in opposition to you the judge or the law. I am also in a self diagnosis stage that will include expert diagnosis on my mental aggression that I hope strongly always to control and be a tender sensitive person to others.
If you feel I’m truly guilty by definition, I know that you do not seek injustice and would ask you talk to my PD John Chase before trial if that’s what you believe to avoid my family further seeing me in opposition to them through this charge, which I would prefer them to be comfortable as much as possible. My mother and I have already discussed how to solve our family issues and address my selfish ambitions through proactive measures. There is even already talk of my relatives removing protection order in one year if I have a job and am responsible. It means the world to me to be loved by them right now. Though I am intensely guilty of being a bad person, and still have major hateful feelings I know needing medical and/or mental treatment. My family arranged me to go to the crisis center which my heart is feeling right about.
Pg 2
Please call me for sentencing if you believe I am guilty. I know this place [jail] allows me to dry out and feel hurt which helps understand the feelings of the victims I’ve hurt. By the
Like the police have been told I was aware a restraining order could exist and told not to go 500 yards from my relatives. I was never told I could be arrested and honestly never dealt in this situation, but glad to be able to self reflect on how important words impact others both good and bad.
I have seen evil in this jail, and I have also seen cracks of God. I do thank you for your destruction upon the evil. And one day I hope to be a part of the movement in Minding Philippines of actual kidnapping prevention and criminals captured. Our (US) efforts are already in midsts of Asian police officer or military training there. I’ve only heard rumors but seen slight lack of justice intelligence against foreignors [sic]. Although we did seize their own country from them and kill many of their own but returned their nation (Philippines) to them upon Independence Day.
The federal agent movie Soccario [sic] and Asian military leader assassin movie Luitenant [sic] ___________ (something like Heisen) from Philippines are true must sees if you appreciate which I’m sure you do historian films and films unvolving [sic] actual severely dangerous criminal movements.

Singapore I heard is a must visit.

Best Regards
Shaun R Williams

Systematic Misrepresentation of Commission

As he has done with other clients, both friends and relatives, Williams misrepresented to CLIENT W.D that he was helping him as a friend and therefore the buyer would save the money that would otherwise go to a Realtor’s commission. In reality, Williams collected a full commission. He used this misrepresentation with other clients including:
• CLIENT J.S.W, of Schaumburg and now Elgin IL. This client fought with Williams for months until Williams finally reimbursed them for the amount of his 2005 Keller Williams referral commission on their real estate transaction as he had originally promised.
• VICTIM J.E was promised by Williams that he would help the victim for free, on the purchase of a W 64th Place, Arvada CO property, specifically, that VICTIM J.E would save the amount of the Realtor’s commission. Not only did Williams end up collecting a full commission at closing, but further, he went from claiming he was helping for free, to threatening VICTIM J.E that legally, the victim could not work with any other Realtor. VICTIM J.E indicates never having signing a Buyer Agency Agreement, and yet, “A staff worker at my old school in Arvada was selling her home, and I wanted to look at it, and Shaun told me, ‘You’re not legally allowed to look at any properties with any other realtor. You have a contract with me.’” This was after Williams had told VICTIM J.E he was helping for free.

Reneged on Promise to Client

Williams promised the buyers, “I’ll give you a $400 gift card at closing,” and when they were filling out their loan application, Williams added $400 to his commission, which increased the loan amount by $400. CLIENT W.D then asked, “What’s that $400 for?” and Williams replied, “That’s for the gift card I’m going to give you.” The client then politely said, “Well, why don’t we just forget the card, and leave that off the loan.”

Attempted Falsified Verification of Rent

Williams forged an already fraudulent Verification of Rent by altering the amount by putting a “1,” in front of the $300 on the VOR that VICTIM B.Js mother had earlier produced. Williams changed that document from $300 per month, to $1,300 per month. When the result looked obviously forged, Williams asked the buyer to obtain a new, false VOR to indicate $1,300 a month rent paid, to fraudulently qualify for a $500,000 mortgage.

Attempted Falsified Verification of Deposit

After VICTIM E.H backed out of the purchase of the Wynspire property, and in similar fashion as recorded elsewhere on this site, Williams put the new buyer’s name on William’s own checking account to falsify income to the lender.
The buyer (VICTIM B.J) realized the severity of the criminal behavior being proposed, and backed out of the deal. Williams then berated the victim for refusing to purchase the home, even though that purchase:
• would be based upon an extensively fraudulent mortgage application; and
• would illegally disguise $80,000 in promised cash back to the buyer;
• would be for a sales price of $500,000 (which is more than 50% above the property’s reasonable market value).

Other Examples of Intimidation

• In January 2007 at Downing St in Denver, in front of his then wife, and VICTIM B.J, and another witness, Williams threatened to smash the victim’s car, and ran off toward the parking garage. Williams’ wife said, “I’ll go stop him,” and ran off after him.
• In the fall of 2006, Williams held a gun in his car at the same Denver address toward a pedestrian who he had a minor confrontation with.
• In February 2007, Williams has indicated suicidal, and homicidal, tendencies. Also, on Feb. 5, 2007 at an evening meeting regarding William’s real estate dealings at Coors Way, in Arvada CO, once again those around him reasonably feared that Williams would get a gun and start shooting people.
