This property was foreclosed on by a Florida company, Fidelity Tax, LLC. The LLC shared the same address with BankAtlantic in Ft. Lauderdale, until its address changed in 2011 — less than a year before BankAtlantic’s CEO and Chairman, Alan Levan, was charged with real estate fraud by the SEC. Fidelity Tax LLC’s resident agent was Stan Linnick, BankAtlantic’s Senior Vice President and Enterprise Risk Manager.
Until 2006, BankAtlantic’s CEO was the registered agent for a now-defunct Florida corporation, Fidelity Tax Corporation, which became Fidelity Tax, LLC, without Alan Levan’s name in the company’s ownership documents.
