Folks, Sheriff Ana Franklin has settled with the Bankruptcy court. However, are there others looking at the Ponzi scheme? Greg Steenson's spreadsheet below. There are others who invested that worked for the sheriff's office as well.
Folks, a lot of folks ask how did it happen? How did Sheriff Ana Franklin get involved with the Priceville Partners, LLC? Greed. Pure and simple. Greg Steenson, Steven Ziaja, and Ana Franklin had a plan. A big plan. Get rich quick. The question is, is that the only plan they had in the fire? Doubt it!
The scheme that Greg Steenson, Steven Ziaja, and Ana Franklin were involved in may not be a Ponzi Scheme, but it sure looks like one. It appears that everyone except for the Jeffreys family got a piece of the pie. I hope I have simplified the breakdown of the scheme for our readers. It isn't complicated; it's just plain dumb.
Based on page # 1 below Steven Ziaja gave Steenson a $10,000.00 check. He received a 45% interest back on his investment which came to a profit of $4,500.00 dollars with a 30 day turn around. Ziaja received a check for his investment totaling $14,500.00 per page 1 below.
Ana Franklin invested $150,000 original check with a 45% profit which should have come to $67,500.00 which comes to $217,500.00. Franklin reinvested the money and her cash profit was 97,875.00. According to the spreadsheet Ana wrote Steven Ziaja a check for $165,375.00.
Based on page # 2 Steven Ziaja cashed the check and gave Ana Franklin $165,375.00 to reinvest. Ana Franklin reinvested a $150,000.00 check plus $165,375.00 in cash totaling $315,375.00. Ana Franklin received a profit of $141,919.00. The $141,919 was divided by 3 people totaling $47,306.00 for Greg Steenson, Steven Ziaja, and Ana Franklin.
You will notice at the bottom of page # 2 Ana received 212,681 in cash plus her original investment of $150,000.00 for a total of $362,681.00.
Why did Greg Steenson prepare these spreadsheets if he, Ana Franklin and Steven Ziaja did not profit from the scheme?
Another important aspect of this spreadsheet is that we know that the other investors got their money back. If the other investors got their money back, you can bet that Ana Franklin, Steven Ziaja, and Greg Steenson got their money back.
If you go back to page one you will also note that Pressley and Hudson also received 45% interest for their investment. While Reggie, Venegoni, Reese, and Bones only received 22% interest for their investment.
The scheme must have gone on for three months. Based on page 1 and 2 of the spreadsheet Hudson received a 45% percent on one investment and a 22% investment in another investment. Pressley must have played three times because he received a 45% interest twice and a 22% interest on another investment. The same goes for Reggie's mother and John Venegoni they both received 22% interest on two of their investments and an 11% on another investment.
Reese and Wilder appeared to have played twice once receiving a 22% investment and an 11% investment on another.
There were several other people who invested in the scheme that is not on page number 1 and 2, to include Deputy Blake Robinson.
