The woman, who will remain unidentified, released tax related documents and information to The Daily News citing that Nisbett has amassed a fortune by not paying taxes in the state of New York.
Property records and the like confirmed that Nisbett and his wife Mary have over the course of about 15 years — taken out just north of $500,000 in private mortgages with just over five different banks across New York City.
Nisbett first migrated to New York City just before the turn of the century according to authorities. Police say that Nisbett reportedly owns cruise ships; numerous cars, several homes, and as of late reportedly sold a cruise ship business in AU to start another in Australia.
