MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The co-founder of Mo' Money Tax Service insists his company has done nothing wrong after police in Norfolk, Virginia raided six offices there, carrying away computers.
"All these people waiting on their money, you know how frustrating that is?" said Brian Mathis as he waited outside Mo Money's main office in Whitehaven.
A Norfolk Police spokesperson said search warrants were served at six locations, and 12 Mo' Money employees voluntarily went to Norfolk PD's Operations Center for interviews.
"All six locations are presently closed and not expected to resume operation," said Chris Amos with the Norfolk Police Department.
In an email to abc24.com, Markey Granberry said, "Just left my atty office.yall have ruined my business!"
"The Norfolk Police Economic Crimes Unit and the Internal Revenue Service opened a joint investigation into the actions of Mo' Money." Amos said. "At this time no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing."
Congressman Steve Cohen said he's talked to Virginia Congressman Bobby Scott and both want a full investigation.
Locally, the Memphis Police Department and the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said they're not investigating Mo' Money, because no one has filed a formal complaint.
