Last November 48 year old Michael McNeill and 36 year old Joshua Flynn pled Guilty in federal court to one count each of wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and conspiracy to commit money laundering. McNeil was sentenced to 120 months in prison and Flynn was sentenced to 84 months in connection with a multi-count indictment arising from a fraudulent telemarketing enterprise that often targeted elderly victims. Both defendants were also ordered to pay restitution to the victims and to forfeit assets. Ninety-one Missouri residents are among the nearly 4,000 victims.

The FBI says McNeill, Flynn, and others, took part in a telemarketing enterprise that sold false and fictitious business opportunities as part of a scheme that reached across the United States and Canada and generated in excess of $20 Million in fraudulent sales.
