Curt Schilling’s company told employees it was selling their homes; didn’t

Not only did Curt Schilling’s company go belly-up and lay everyone off, it allegedly boned some of them via a relocation program that apparently didn’t do what it was supposed to do:

Some of the hundreds of 38 Studios employees laid off yesterday were hit with a second round of bad news this week when they were told by banks that homes they thought the company had sold for them hadn’t been and that they may be stuck with a second mortgage, Polygon has learned … One former employee said they discovered this week that their Massachusetts home, which they had been told was sold last year, actually hadn’t been. The bank contacted them this week to ask why they mortgage wasn’t being paid.

When stuff like this happens, investigators really start going over a company’s books. And when investigators start going over a company’s books, boy howdy do things get ugly. Because a lot of companies have fishy stuff on the books. If everything else is fine, no one ever knows.

But fired employees getting caught up in mortgages they thought their company disposed of?  Watch out.

    Bobby Valentines’ sources tell him Curt Shilling may have lost the respect of his locker room.

    Start writing checks, Schilling. It’s the only remotely good thing you can do at this point.

    When you get bored waiting for cable, you take a job with an overweight crook. When you take a job with an overweight crook, he tries to convince you he isn’t and overweight crook. When he convinces you he’s not an overweight crook, he tells you to give him your house. When you give him your house, he requires you to move to a new state under a new alias. When you move to a new state under a new alias, his company goes belly up. When his company goes belly up, you lose everything. And when you lose everything, you end up living in your Sister’s basement living on beer and Snickers. Don’t live on beer and Snickers.
