The I-Team at WBRE and Andy Mehalshick are reporting that the U.S. Postal Service has taken jurisdiction in the investigation into J.P.L. Financial and its owner James P. Lake. Andy reported that Lake has talked to federal investigators.
My sources tell me that the whereabouts of Mr. Lake are well known inside Scranton. One of his alleged victims I personally interviewed called an insurance company about a policy that he purchased through James Lake. The insurance company stated they had no record of the policy and the document appeared to be a fake.
I am sure more information will be forthcoming as possible victims step forward. Click on the link to watch the I-Team's report.
