Sean O'Neal WANTED- Fraud, Extortion, Theft, Defamation and Rape
The 2 criminal complaints in Mexico against Sean that are approved by the District Attorney for arrest warrants and waiting upon the signature of the local judges. The first charges were filed by a 66 year old woman living in Nebraska. Sean O'Neal defrauded the woman of $375,000 USD by having her send her entire life savings to Sean's 5 year old son's bank account in California under the guise of buying a condo in Puerto Aventuras. He has since threatened her physically. Nebraska police are investigating the case and have subpoenaed the bank accounts at Wells Fargo in California and have now subpoenaed Sean's personal HSBC bank account in Playa del Carmen where some of the funds were sent. The rest of the money was taken out in cash at the bank's branch store in Palos Verde, California where he is now living. The FBI have been notified of the offense for alleged wire fraud.
The second criminal complaint was filed by Investment Properties Mexico against Sean O'Neal for fraud, extortion and theft. Sean O'Neal used IPM's name to defraud not only a woman of her entire life savings but also his father-in-law, Hector Aguilar Leyva, of $185,000.00 USD. Sean O'Neal often told the victims that he was going to invest in golf carts, an OXXO franchise and even that he needed the money to pay for an abortion of one of his mistresses. Other charges files by Investment Properties Mexico against Sean O'Neal are for extortion and theft of a company vehicle.

For many of Sean's schemes he used his son's bank account in California which his 93 year old mother, Eleanor Jean Sipos was a co-signor on. This account received and laundered money from his unsuspecting victims.
These are just the criminal cases in Mexico against him. There are several other law suits against him in the USA and Mexico from both the victims and the company. There is also a defamation case filed against Sean by IPM in the USA for the 50+ aliases and numerous websites that he has used to post falsified stories and negative reviews.

Fraud $375,000 USD
66 Year old retired lady defrauded of her entire life-savings
Sean O’Neal (aka Sean Sipos, Andrew O’Neal, Andrew Sipos) defrauded an elderly woman of her entire life’s savings of $375,000. You can hear him leave her a threatening message where he calls her a “f**king c*nt” and lets her know he is not letting his mother (whose account was where she sent the money to) get her mail or calls, and then makes fun of the fact that she has to find a job cleaning toilets in her 60’s. See detail.
Fraud - Investment Properties Mexico
After Sean O'Neal decided to leave Mexico around December 2013 and sell his shares on March 4th 2014, we discovered that he was defrauding clients using the Company name. At this moment we stopped paying him and start the legal process against him. Since then he has been threatening and extorting clients and employees of the company.
Extortion / Threats
Sean has on numerous times threatened Richard H. and/or IPM that if they don't send him money then he will do all types of things.
4/16/15, Sean O'Neal: "You need me more. I have nothing to lose. If I lose my family so be it. Maybe I will be able to sleep again. If I go to jail then I can write my book. I have been there before. Send me 50 k which is still less than you owe me in past due payments and I will do everything in my power"
4/25/15 Sean O'Neal: "Pay me my money before I get angry and twist your head like a pimple.
4/28/15 Sean O'Neal: "You are the one that is going to need luck to determine whether I decide to use a lubricant when I stick my cock up your ass you disloyal, coward."
When Sean left Mexico in his midnight move he took with him a vehicle owned by IPM, this has since been reported stolen. Sean has used his wife Ana to try to sell the vehicle.
Sean has put all of his efforts into defaming Richard H., Richard's wife Allison Zaner and even their 4 year old child. A defamation suite has been filed against Sean where it is alleged that he has used over 50 different aliases to attempt to destroy the reputation of Richard and IPM. See detail.
Fraud $185,000 USD
Sean defrauded his own father-in-law
Among his several crimes, he even defrauded his own father-in-law, Hector Aguilar Leyva of $185,000 USD. Sean had his father-in-law send different amounts at different times totallling $185,000 USD under the guise of investing with IPM. However, the money was sent to Sean's personal account and the money was never transferred to IPM's account.
The Truth of Why Sean O’Neal Left Mexico
Sean O’Neal tells a story of him leaving Mexico after discovering a fraud and wanting nothing to do with Investment Properties Mexico, which like the rest of his stories, is just another Sean O’Neal lie. Sean O’Neal told Richard that he wanted to move to California to be near his elderly mom and asked Rich if he would buy him out so he would have the money to move and open an office in California and continue working for Investment Properties Mexico remotely. He only “left” IPM when Rich no longer allowed him to work for the company almost a year later. See detail.
Impersonating a Detective
On March 7th, 2016, Sean hired someone to hack into IPM's email server and then what is called “fished” for passwords from there by sending an email to IPM staff asking for their passwords. He even set a rule whereby if anyone responded to Susana’s email then it would go to the trash. He used this info to call a client and pretended to be an Detective "Jacobs", and use scare tactics.
Threatening a 66 year old Woman
Sean O’Neal left one of his fraud victims this voice message (she is a 60+ year old retired woman), a woman he claims is like family: “You listen to me you f****** c***. Do you really think I am ever going to let my mother receive one of your emails or one of your mails? No! You are f****** crazy lady, you are stupid” (apparently Sean O’Neal is intercepting his mom Eleanor Jean Sipo’s mail and email so she won’t know what he did or the crimes he committed or the fact that he used her bank account). “If you continue to harass my mother or try to because she doesn’t even know you exist, I will take it very personally you old bag. Enjoy cleaning that s***.” (making fun of the fact that she now has to find a job at the age of 65+ since Sean O’Neal stole her life savings). “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMAuK8CxFoo".
When Sean made his midnight move, along with his 6 employees, he also neglected to tell his Landlords. Why you may ask? Quite simply because he took all the furniture with him that came with the house when he rented it. He even took the safes that were bolted in. The total estimated value being $190,000.00 PESOS ($10,800.00 USD)
And of course, in true Sean O'Neal style he sent the 70+ year old landlords a threatening email after hearing they had been talking bad of him.
"I understand that full blown alcoholics like yourself who have nothing better to do love to gossip and spread unfounded rumors"
"So instead of continuing to spread your infantile little lies maybe you should just say thanks and suck my dick?"
"If you were younger and not a loser alcoholic, I would educate you properly. Instead I feel sorry for you. Go to hell... Now you have a story to tell all your other shallow boozer friends."
