PHOENIX, ARIZ. – Jeremy Johnson was arrested in Phoenix this weekend on an additional charge of mail fraud.
The new charge stems from allegations that Johnson committed mail fraud by sending software to clients for a risk-free trial. He was arrested by IRS agents while transferring planes at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
The Associated Press reports that Johnson, of St. George, was flying home with his wife and children to their house in Costa Rica where they have been living since Johnson and his company iWorks came under fire while being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission for fraud.
The Deseret News reports that, according to the felony complaint, Johnson used false advertising, false testimonials and phony reviews to market his companies. The Deseret News also gave two accounts of alleged victims who said they were scammed out of their money by ordering a CD to show how them how to receive government grants. But instead of receiving a CD, they allegedly were charged multiple times on their credit card.
