Oh, Jackson Hewitt, What a Ponzi Mess

It is being reported today that Jackson Hewitt Tax Services is being sued for selling a franchise to a felon who then roped consumers into a Ponzi scheme and took their money.

The felon named his franchise Simple Financial Solutions, and apparently, simple it was.

Jackson Hewitt negligently hired Daniel L. Prewett, who’d pleaded guilty to 12 counts of grand larceny and insurance fraud in 1987, according to two complaints in Sarasota County Court.

Prewett, who is not defendant, is in federal prison, the plaintiff say. In the old case, federal prosecutors charged him with selling at least 19 people fake insurance policies taking their premium payments, according to the new complaints. – Source

Here is a copy of the complaint.
