PrePaid Legal Services — Henry Enns, Nicole Enns, Grace Enns, Duane Enns
In 2005 I was introduced to Mr. Henry W. Enns through a mutual business associate. Between May of 2005 and May 2009, I unfortunately became very involved in a business arrangement with Mr. Enns.
Despite his gray hair, charming personality, and self proclaimed "good old fashioned hard work ethic, " this wolf in lambs clothing and his adoring family have turned out to be first class con artists, robbing my company blind.
After being foolish enough to allow him to become an "equity partner" in our Limited Liability Company, simply through what he claimed to be "hard work, " rather than "hard cash investment" like the other partners; this docile, grandfatherly man and his family of grifters, have now managed to destroy the company that I had put my blood, sweat, tears and money into since 1997.
While the rest of us were out hitting the pavement attempting to bring new clients and the subsequent revenue that comes along with those new clients into the firm; he was coming into the office at 6:00 AM every morning, (going home by 2:00 PM most days), and working hard at diverting company contracts, clients, vendors and revenues, away from the company and into the iron grip of himself and his scamming family.
Beginning in late 2008, this professional con artist managed to get rid of essentially every other partner, manager and employee of the firm, other than myself. He then moved his poorly educated 40 year old, ex construction worker son and somewhat younger, but equally uneducated, daughter in law; down to Sacramento from Canada. His next step was to move them into the firm for the final takeover of what was once a small, yet successfull company with a good reputation and bright future.
Within 30 days of the son and daughter in law's arrival from Canada, nearly every remaining member of the firm was either manipulated into resigning or were terminated by the new family "management team" from Canada. By the time the rest of us realized what was taking place, the damage was already done and "Mother Enns" had all of the company's revenue flowing into her filthy little fists.
This small, private firm went from being successfully engaged in the Insurance, Mortgage, Investment Advisory, Estate Planning and professional business consulting fields, to nothing more than a multi level marketing scam and body recruiting mill, allegedly selling Prepaid Legal Services ID Theft and Legal Insurance products to everyone they laid eyes upon.
This group of grifters have apparantly been no strangers to failed business ventures in the past. It would now appear that they had failed ventures in Canada, then came to Sacramento, where the launched another insurance office that failed in just a matter of months, and then opened yet another insurance agency in the Temecula area that quickly failed as well. I assume that my little company simply seems to be just another victim in their business plan designed to use "OPM, " or as better known to most in business as "Other People's Money."
It would seem that once "Father Enns" had positioned himself exactly where he wanted to be within my company, (seizing control of all of the company's assets and revenue without anyone else's knowledge or approval), he then had "Mother Enns" come through the door and act out a major scene of threats and physical violence against the remaining staff and management.
By the time that "Mother Enns" had done her part to divert the attention away from what the true family agenda really was, the son and daughter in law had already managed to steal all of the company's client and vendor lists. After getting their grubby little paws on all of our client's records, they all rode off into the sunset.
Now they are using all of our stolen client and vendor information to try and sell Prepaid Legal Services plans, instead of the financial products and services that our company had actually sold and provided clients with for the last 12 years.
Then, while we were being diverted by "Mother Enns" and her never ending ranting and raving that went on continually for days, "Father Enns" was able to divert all of the company contracts and revenue away from the company and into bank accounts that he and "Mother Enns" controlled.
By the time they were done with what could only be termed as a "Hostile Takeover", (somewhat like a bank robbery without guns or masks), I ended up being fleeced out of around $250, 000.00 of my own personal funds. The company has also lost another $15K-$20K per month in ongoing revenue that belongs to the company and our investors.
Sadly, one of our other elderly investors is a little old 86 year old grandmother, she is now left without another $70K taken from her as well as her church; who has now been fleeced out of around $30K by the antics of the multi level marketing Enns family of Roseville California. Additionally, two of our other company employees and their families no longer have their company paid health insurance benefits either. The entire Enns family simply shows no remorse for what they have done to our small company and the people who worked there.
What is even more disgusting, is the fact that the son, Duane Enns, and the daughter in law, Nicole Enns, are now out there calling on our company's former clients and vendors; with the full knowledge and support of Prepaid Legal Services. Beyond our comprehension, Prepaid Legal Services continues to not only support the Enns' activities, they keep promoting Nicole Enns right on up the Prepaid Legal Services marketing ladder. They promote and glorify her "success", even though she has done this mostly by using the stolen client and vendor lists generated through my company's once good name and relationship with our clients.
Don't let the Enns family of corporate raiders anywhere near your small business or you are very likely to not only be parted from your hard earned cash, but they will do their best to recruit away any and all employees that will give a listen to the Prepaid Legal "money for nothing and checks for free" sales pitch.
