Update: Man jailed in Rusk County wanted in Nevada mortgage scheme

HENDERSON (KYTX) - A Las Vegas man wanted on mortgage lending fraud allegations was arrested this weekend at a flea market near Overton.

Rusk County deputies took 43-year-old William Joseph Chrissikopoulos into custody Sunday at Sexton City Trades Days on Texas highway 42 and hwy. 135 between Overton and Kilgore.

Sheriff's Sgt. David Roberts says Chrissikopoulos is wanted on 15 felony larceny charges from Nevada.

He's being held in the Rusk County jail without bond awaiting transport to Nevada.

According to online records, Chrissikopoulos is president of Paintball Fever, an entertainment and amusement business in Las Vegas.

According to the Reno, Nev., Business Examiner, Chrissikopoulos is among four defendants in a Nevada grand jury indictment alleging the defendants "charged fees between $6,295 and 12,990 for services they failed to deliver. Multiple activities including so-called "forensic audits" and an "administrative process" that may end in the client owning their homes free and clear through different processes including signing their homes over to a non-profit, American Home Rescue, paying rent to the non-profit for a period of time, then the non-profit would deed it back to the clients."
