Jerome Bonnett told a widow who is out $400,000 that he “diverted (her) money to ‘make it right’ with other clients”, according to an affidavit filed in court by a Nebraska Department of Insurance investigator being examined by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
Nebraska officials report that the allegations go back as far as nine years and have “all the makings of a Ponzi scheme”, a process in which someone takes money from new clients to replace money owed to other clients, according to officials in Nebraska.
