He has been named in several civil lawsuits, by securities fraud lawyers, in multiple states for fraudulent business practices and manipulating consumers into investing with him.

He was also charged in the court, by the Florida state’s attorney for faking his own distress call which is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) www.faa.gov violation. He is currently facing criminal charges filed by the district attorney in Indiana and the states attorney in Florida.
