MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Mo' Money Taxes is in trouble again, this time in Virginia. Six offices in Norfolk shut down as police there investigate Mo' Money's practices.
According to ABC News affiliate WVEC-TV, The Norfolk Police Economic Crimes Unit and the Internal Revenue Service are conducting a joint investigation into the Memphis-based company's actions.
Back here in the Mid-South, customers are being told their missing refund checks will arrive Friday. The troubles in Virginia aren't making people in Memphis feel any better.
Now the owner of Mo' Money is blaming ABC 24 News for all of his problems.
The company headquarters over on Millbranch were busy all day with everybody looking for the same thing: money.
ABC 24 News was told to leave. The big Mo' Money boss, Markey Granberry, wasn't in, we were told. Outside, we were told that something else wasn't in the office: their IRS refund money.
Mo' Money customers said they've been told to come back for their money three or four times. Each time they leave frustrated and empty-handed.
This time, customers looking for their refunds were told to come back on Friday when the checks would be in, at least that's what Mo' Money workers told them.
ABC 24 News received an e-mail from Granberry, who told us he had just left his lawyer's office and "y'all have ruined my business."
