O.J. Victim on Tape -- I Set Up Offshore Accounts

9/19/2007 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained an audiotape recorded one hour after O.J.Simpson and his crew allegedly robbed two men in a Las Vegas hotel room.

An hour after the incident, Bruce Fromong, a sports memorabilia dealer and an alleged victim, can be heard ranting, "Nobody puts a gun in my f****n' face. I stood up for that motherf***er in -- in while he was in jail. I stood up for him in the press. I stood up for him on the, on the stand. I helped him set up his f***in' offshore accounts. Don't f**k with me."

If true, this could be a road map for Fred Goldman to go after Simpson's assets.

Fromong had a serious heart attack days after the incident, but is improving. His condition was upgraded to fair this morning.

Is O.J. hiding money?

Yes
No

To the commenter's against Fred Goldman. Talk about off base. I don't consider this a meal ticket for Goldman. You can only imagine the frustration he has seeing the man that killed his son and got away with it, living with no guilt and enjoying every day. I think that if the only way to haunt OJ is by going after everything he has, then more power to Fred. At least OJ knows that one person is keeping an eye on him and will never let him forget what he got away with.

To all of the idiots who are chastising Fred Goldman;

No amount of money will ever bring back nor replace his son and he is not doing this for his financial gain, you morons.

He is doing it because the murderer of his son got away with it because of a racist jury. Since then, OJ has been doing nothing but living the high life and I am sure as a father it makes Fred Goldman sick and it's one way to make OJ "pay" for his hideous deeds since our criminal system failed to make OJ "pay".

If someone murdered your son and got away with it, would you not do anything and everything in your power to be a thorn in the murders side?

Get a clue you morons.

Fred Goldman is not trying to make money for profit sake!!!!! Hew is trying to hurt OJ in the only way he can without him doing wait the juice did to Ron and Nicole.

Fred wants OJ's life to suck because he took his son from him and got off.

I hope OJ sees some jail time for being such a murdering and wife beating jack-ass.

Anytime there is a tragedy in America it has become a time for money grabbing from every source. It looks like the people want to get rich off the dead. It is really sad and shameful. This has happened with the Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11, and the deaths of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldmon. Apparently this is what America has been reduced to.

Egads, stop thinking that Goldman's are just trying to get rich off O.J. When does not have the power to physically hurt someone back for the damage they have done, you look for ways to make that person hurt and if someone loves money, making them hurt in the pocketbook and haunting them with this is a way to do it. I don't blame the Goldman's. O.J. haunts them because O.J. murdering their son for no reason other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Give the Goldman's a break. There is not a bone in my body that believes they revel in getting OJ's money so they can have a cushy life.

Okay "who cares" & "WOW" ;

Where pray tell was Freddy boy when his son was alive..NO WHERE!!!! That a$$ doesn't deserve a damn thing. He is just freeloading off his dead son who he had nothing to do with. At the trial it was stated he and Ron had not spoken in years. Did you ever think that maybe Goldman had his son offed because he could not live with his sons chosen lifestyle and thought it was a disgrace. Its usually the guilty ones who try to hide their tracks by making it look like someone else did it.

And where is your proof Simpson did the murders "beyond a reasonable doubt"?...NO WHERE!! If the jury of his peers couldn't find it, how could you? If you are such good detectives and have all the proof, maybe you should have given it to the prosecutors in the case and then you have the braggin rights to say Simpson did it and everyones nightmare will be solved. Maybe you can even go to Nevada and help them out. Get to the truth behind what when on and why. Put the actual gun in Simpsons hand. Thats all they will need to have a solid conviction. Find the off shore bank accounts. Maybe the off shore bank will have a safe deposit box with a tape Nicoles and Rons murder and an audio tape since Simpson is great at having what he does recorded. Just think, Freddy boy might even let you have his daughter as your reward. Then we can all rest easy at night.

Oh..and after you solve that, find that second gunman who was in the grassy knoll when Kennedy was shot. The whole country will be indebted to you for another mystery solved.

It is pretty obvious, although most of you "knowledgeable" people disagree, that Mr. Goldman has found a goldmine and is milking it for everything he can get. As for rather having his son back????He acted like he didn't have a son when the kid was alive, why would that change now?

First of all, Fred Goldman is no saint either. I bet if you dig deep into his past a few skeletons will fall out of the closet. There had to be a reason why Ron had nothing to do with him.
Secondly, yes, if someone murdered my child, I would want justice, not blood money. I would also like the cops to find the person who did it and have a solid case so he would not get off and I could throw the switch or inject the needle. And that it not be in California where that legal system doesn't even know what laws are for or how to or when to prosecute someone. Those two prosecutors were in such a hurry to make a name for themselves, they messed up. If anyone should have been held liable in a Civil Suit, it should have been them and the Key Stone Cops for screwing everything up.
Thirdly, as for Nevada..Why is the media circus just showing bits & pieces of clips. Lets see/hear the whole thing. Just like the murder trial, you are getting people riled up, starting a linch mob even before the whole story comes out and you all are being sucked right on in as you were before. Why is the Justice System letting the accompliances go free? If they want a solid case, they should keep their lips sealed about any deals they made with them and keep them under lock and key until the trial. The news media leak info that could harm their case more than help it. Thats the problem in high profile cases. Too many leaks, not enough time getting facts straight for a solid case, and too many prosecutors out to make a name for themself instead of just getting Justice.

**Thank you..It seems as if I was the only one who knew Goldman and his son were estranged.

As for Off Shore accounts, you too are correct. Any interest earned on them has to be recorded as income. And do those of you who may think he has any, he would be stupid enough to put them in his own name? Some accounts just are listed with an account number with no registered name and you just need a passcode to access them.

Re #93 - goodgrief needs to read his own words. He looks like a fool. A civil court IS a "court of law" - what do you have in your head? Peanut butter?
The American 'justice' system is bifurcated (two parts), criminal and civil.

OJ escaped criminal liability in criminal court but he was declared GUILTY in a cilil trial in court which is indeed "a Court of Law"

GoodGrief is a good handle for you. Slow down, take a deep breath and get a grip on something. Think your posts through before pulling the trigger - #93 makes you look a fool...

OJ gets low bail on 11 felonies.
OJ gets to leave LV.
Tom Scotto is OJ's best friend.
Scotto only one not arrested and allowed to leave LV immediately.
Sports junk, sports betting belongs to mob.
Scottos are alleged mob family.
Who else would be friend to OJ?
