In a recent Instagram Live stream on Tuesday, October 24, Cesar Pina, the New Jersey real estate investor, and influencer who is currently facing wire fraud charges, expressed his disagreement with DJ Envy’s assertion that he too was a “victim” of the alleged real estate scam.
Pina, who is also known by the moniker Flipping NJ, was arrested last week on allegations of promising investors an excessively high rate of return only to divert the funds for personal use. DJ Envy, known for his association with Pina and participation in various videos and seminars, found himself connected to Pina’s Ponzi scheme.
Pina, who has staunchly denied any wrongdoing following his arrest, was quite candid in his Instagram Live session. He remarked, “I’m at the point now that I can’t communicate with anybody because now everybody’s a potential co-conspirator, everybody is a witness, everybody is a victim. Nobody’s an investor anymore; everybody’s a victim.”
Pina then shifted his focus to DJ Envy’s defense, given the radio host’s repeated attempts to have his name removed from several lawsuits connected to the case.
Regarding DJ Envy’s claims of victimhood, Pina didn’t mince words, saying, “DJ Envy’s attorney’s defense that DJ Envy is a victim — that’s the dumbest sh*t I ever heard in my life,” he continued. “Me and him were partners in the real estate seminars. We were partners in a couple of real estate transactions. That’s it. He’s not a victim. He was my partner. He was an investor.”
In the same livestream, Pina criticized the unwarranted connections made between DJ Envy and the multiple lawsuits surrounding his case. He emphasized that “DJ Envy has nothing to do with any of these 20 lawsuits filed by those suing me.”
