Palm House ‘whistleblower’ sends documents to town

The Palm House project took another turn this month when someone involved in the now-defunct condominium-hotel emailed a self-proclaimed “whistleblower” tip to Town Councilwoman Danielle Moore.
The email included three attachments that allege JJW Consultancy, a Delaware-based LLC that solicited money for the project, is involved in a variety of fraudulent projects around the country. The whistleblower also forwarded the email to the Daily News.
“I am an anonymous insider within the Palm House Florida EB-5 projects and have gotten the courage to blow the whistle on significant fraud going on behind the scenes,” the email, dated Jan. 13, stated. “I am prompted to contact you because your recent comments about the project made me believe that you may be sympathetic and helpful to a Whistleblower such as myself.”
Two days earlier, Moore voiced her hesitance at voting to approve a year-long extension that allowed the court-appointed receiver of the property to pursue financing for the project.
“I will tell you I am really tired, and I think the rest of this town are really sick of this project,” Moore said at the meeting.
