Looking Back: Steven Ziaja had Four Promissory Notes Recorded Totaling 846,000.00 on December 23, 2015

Blogger Update:  Since we initially wrote this blog on Steven (Booger) Ziaja November 2, 2015 we have gathered a considerable amount of information.  Ziaja claims he sold up to 30 vehicles to Title Mart.  There is no record of those sales nor the VIN numbers associated with the sales of these vehicles.  Steven also said he invested $846,000.00 in the Title Marts.  Please see promissory notes below that he claims was his investment in the Title Marts.  S lot of money passed between Greg Steenson and Steven (Booger) Ziaja but no where the amount of money claimed.  It is our hope that as the Bankruptcy proceedings continue that Ziaja is deposed so that he can clear up some of the confusion.  It is a lot different to make claims to the press, your attorney, family, and friends than swearing to the facts in Federal Court.   

Our first blog on the Title Marts was November 2, 1015.  We noticed that Ziaja did not have the notes probated until after we posted our first Title Mart blog.  Ziaja recorded all of the promissory notes on December 23, 2015 at the Morgan County Probate Judges Office. 

We begin our research of Performance Auto Sales late April - Early May 2015.  We begin our blog in October 2015.   We decided to blog our findings of the Performance Auto Sales AKA Title Mart's once we were comfortable with the information we obtained in regards to Sheriff Ana Franklin's purchase of  vehicles from the Title Mart's, verified that Alyssa Franklin worked at the Title Mart's, and that Steven Ziaja had gone into business with Greg Steenson.  

Steven Ziaja entered into the Title Mart Business with Greg Steenson December 1, 2014.  According to the below Promissory Note below the first note was for $100,000.00.  The note states that "THE PURPOSE OF THIS LOAN IS TO BUY AND SALE VEHICLES.  WE AGREE TO SPLIT THE PROFIT 50/50?  What we find interesting is that for some reason Ziaja did not have the Note recorded with the Morgan County Probate Judge's office until December 23, 2015 at 3:49:38 PM.  You will note that the promissory note calls for all profits to be split 50/50.  Our question is 50/50 with whom?

On January 9, 2015 Ziaja loaned the dealership more money.
On March 27, 2015, Ziaja loaned the Title Marts another $20,000.00.  

 This Promissory Note for $200,000.00 appears to have been signed by Harold Jeffreys.  Hum!!

The October 17, 2015 Promissory Note for $526,000.00 appears to be signed by Greg Steenson and Ben Jeffreys

As we previously reported Ziaja has loaned money before.  In each case he had the loan probated immediately.  He made a loan to his aunt, an employee of the MCSO, and Ana Franklin's daughter and her husband, Mrs. Erika Sheats and Mr. Derek Sheats.  All of these notes were promptly probated.

Why would Steven Ziaja loan Performance Auto Sales $846,000.00 without a promissory note.  By Ziaja's own admission he did not know these people.  It appears he trusted Greg Steenson far more than he trusted the people closest to him.
