Cases of Bankruptcy Fraud


In Monroe, a businesswoman was charged with bankruptcy fraud among other charges. Harriet Lynne King, 49 was convicted for bankruptcy fraud, concealment of property, knowingly violating a bankruptcy law, false statements under a penalty of perjury and false testimony under oath.

King runs HL King and Associates Inc., a company that seemingly provides legal services in Monroe. King had committed criminal acts of accepting legal fees and court costs from 3 debtors and masquerading as an attorney. In addition, King refused to return the fees when ordered to do so by the court. Subsequently, King filed for bankruptcy herself and in her bankruptcy petition failed to disclose debts she had and deceptively declared she owned property that she never did. She went on to sign her bankruptcy petition declaring that all she disclosed were true and accurate. During testimony, it was revealed that King lied under oath when questioned about the false information.
