Rigging a Contest, Jennifer McKinney Style

Standard

jennifer-mckinney-xyngularRemember our favorite serial scammer, MckMama?  Well, the infamous Jennifer McKinney is back and is scamming the sheeple again. (Who am I kidding? She never STOPPED scamming businesses and consumers.)

We’ve talked here at length about Jennifer and Israel McKinney’s unsuccessful attempt at defrauding the bankruptcy court. Of course the McKinneys have scammed many creditors over the years, losing FOUR houses along the way. We have also talked about Xyngular, the multilevel marketing company that MckMama shills for.

And it just so happens that the latest scam involves Xyngular.

On July 30 she announced the giveaway of a “free weekend vacation for two to anywhere in the continental United States.) People could get their names entered multiple times in the drawing… which was supposed to be “randomly” drawn. However, Jennifer McKinney appears to have chosen her winner ahead of time as you will see below. Continue reading

Jennifer McKinney Fraud Update

Standard

It’s been a while since we have looked at the many legal troubles of Jennifer McKinney (aka “MckMama”) and her husband Israel McKinney. In short, Jennifer and her husband have repeatedly stiffed creditors for hundreds of thousands of dollars, losing FOUR houses and having their bankruptcy filing denied after trustee Gene Doeling busted them for lying in their court filings.

This week, the McKinneys lost the fourth house. Marine Credit Union obtained a default judgment against them after they failed to even respond to the lawsuit filed against them for failing to make payments on their house. The bank got a judgment of $334,105 (plus interest) for the house, and $2,528 for attorneys’ fees. The McKinney’s (well, really the bank’s) house at W5441 Innsbruck Road in West Salem, WI will be sold at a sheriff’s auction. Marine Credit Union can pursue the McKinneys for any deficiency (if the sale price of the house does not cover the total that they owe). Continue reading

Bankruptcy and Escalades

Standard

For some time now, we have been following the Jennifer McKinney bankruptcy trainwreck, in which Jennifer and her husband Israel McKinney were alleged to have falsified information and concealed assets. (In the world of forensic accounting, we call that fraud.) For those new to the site, you can read about the origins of the MckMama fraud, complete with solid proof of the lies.

Today a concerned citizen posted some information about the Cadillac Escalade Jennifer McKinney is now driving. Following a very suspicious car accident in October, MckMama began driving a 2005 Escalade. The citizen retrieved a CarFax report on the Escalade, which showed the vehicle being purchased in January 2012 and registered in Onalaska, WI. The report then showed the vehicle being sold in November 2012, which corresponds to Jennifer’s purchase of it. Continue reading

Bankruptcy Fraud: Staying Out Of Trouble

Standard

Recently, I wrote here about the story of Jennifer McKinney (the mommy blogger known as MckMama) and her alleged fraud on the United States Bankruptcy Court in the District of Minnesota. In short, Jennifer and Israel McKinney filed bankruptcy, claiming nearly $750,000 in debts, while failing to disclose the extent of their assets and income.

The bankruptcy trustee has asked the court for a denial of discharge of the McKinneys’ debts, based on false disclosures, lack of disclosure, manipulation of income, and destruction of records. In particular, Jennifer McKinney is accused of falsely claiming her blogging income is $1,500 per month, while she was depositing at least $7,000 to $10,000 per month to her bank account. She reported to the bankruptcy court that her income for 2011 was $55,000, while the records for that year show more than $148,000 of income. In addition, certain assets including cash, accounts receivable, personal property, and (very valuable) domain names and websites were not disclosed in the bankruptcy filing. Continue reading

Jennifer McKinney MckMama Bankruptcy: Fraud Alleged by Trustee

Standard

MckMama BankruptcyWhat is fraud? A false representation of a matter of fact—whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of what should have been disclosed—that deceives and is intended to deceive another so that the individual will act upon it to her or his legal injury.

Yesterday in the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Minnesota, the trustee in the bankruptcy of Israel McKinney and Jennifer Sauls McKinney (known as mommy blogger MckMama, blogging at mycharmingkids.net) filed Case 12-06024, objecting to the discharge of the bankruptcy. Last month I published a lengthy article about the MckMama bankruptcy fraud, and today we’re going to compare what I showed you and what trustee Gene Doeling (my new hero!!!) has alleged.
