According to the I-Team at WBRE federal investigators are looking into complaints of the J.P.L. investment group in Kingston.
The U.S. secret service which handles these kinds of investigations told the I-Team they have received at least five complaints from J.P.L. customers involving tens of thousands of dollars. The owner, James P. Lake, has been unavailable. One woman told us, she cannot account for some $70,000 dollars that she claims she gave to J.P.L. to invest.
The secret service says they are working with the Securities and Exchange Commission and are urging J.P.L. customers to call their Scranton office if they have complaints. That number is (570) 346-5781.
I personally know of one person who was contacted by investigators from Questar Capital. Let's stress that to this point James P. Lake has not been charged with any crime.
