In November 2015 Eric Noveshen, along with several others, was sued by Noveshen’s former employer, Multaply INC of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The federal lawsuit, Multaply vs. Kern et. al claims that Noveshen and others scammed to defraud the company in an effort to take it over. In the process, the suit claims, the defendants diverted over $700,000 into their own bank accounts or accounts not belonging to the company. The suit claims that Eric Noveshen took about 1/3 of the pot, over $200,000 in less than NINE months. It’s hard to hide that kind of money when you have judgments over a $1-million dollars against you. Noveshen owes about $1.2-million to KRG Pembrooke Pines, a strip mall in Wellington, FL. He owes over $100,000 to Ralph Desiano of Naples, FL who Noveshen hired to operate the Cosi franchise he never got off the ground. These are just a few of the debts owed.
The traditional money shelters for Noveshen are his Grandmother Estelle Hartman and his Mother Cheryl D Wilson both of Hallandale Beach, FL. They not only hid cash for Eric during his initial business defrauding investors with the now defunct hedge fund NIR of New York, when he was stashing a $300k in his mattress at a time, they also hid homes in their name for him. Hartman acted as a straw buyer for a property off Las Olas in Ft. Lauderdale and Wilson is the straw buyer for the property Noveshen currently calls home but has actively retained and fought off three foreclosures on since 2005. The family has a bad track record of paying bills. They don’t, according to over a dozen unjust enrichment and other cases that have resulted in judgments against Eric Noveshen, his Mother, ex-girlfriend and sister.
Around 2009 Ex-girlfriend Maggie Welter was accused of being a shelter, but she’s unlikely hiding anything for him considering court records show he’s behind on child support and there are claims that Noveshen refuses to pay current child support, unless he is really paying and its a facade maybe she is the perfect shelter? But it seems a lot of trouble to hide money.
It is rumored Best friend Corey Gant might live in an apartment Noveshen uses as the address for his business Envision Capital, maybe Envision kicks in a little rent, but doubtful Gant hides significant money. Gant is going through a divorce of his own and his ex-wife Vivian Gant is an accountant. Vivian and her Ex are pretty straight shooters not likely to be involved.
That leaves the Mother Cheryl Wilson’s boyfriend Glenn Gruen and Noveshen’s Ex-wife Christina Carter Roberts of Nashville, Tennessee.
In our opinion these are the most likely money shelters.
1. Cheryl D Wilson recently purchased a car paid in full for $22,000. This is higher then her yearly income as a bookkeeper. It’s likely Eric Noveshen would have given the money either to Cheryl or to Glenn Gruen to purchase the car.
3. Christina carter Roberts and Eric Noveshen in the last year inserted their daughter into a $22,000 a year private school Brentwood Academy in Tennessee. Noveshen had been overheard by several people discussing with Mrs. Roberts a generous lump payoff, over $25,000, to pay off his child support tab for the remainder of the child’s 18 years.
Best bets – those who have outwardly benefited from a recent influx of cash- Cheryl Wilson (probably masked by Glenn Gruen) and Christina Carter Roberts under the guise of a large child support payment and private school payments. Pretty much anyone who wants to find the money should leave no stone, relative friend or playmate un-turned.
