Several readers emailed or posted the link to the article in the Indianapolis Business Journal Area couple’s bankruptcy filing lists $18.5M in debt.
… Bradley Stephen Snyder of Nashville and Michelle Lenee Snyder of Fishers filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Indianapolis on July 16.
Court documents show the Snyders operated several businesses, including Bellwether Inc. and AM Publishing Inc., at 9102 Fallview Drive in Fishers. Debt attributed to Bellwether is listed at more than $3.6 million, which includes a $1.6 million loan backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the court filing said.
Court records show Snyder also operates or has operated other businesses on Fallview Drive, and at Keystone Crossing and Woodfield Crossing in Indianapolis. The businesses include such names as Chapter 20 Publishing Inc., Consumer Disclosure Mortgage Inc. and Life After Bankruptcy Inc. …” [emphasis added]
Note the “Bradley” in Bradley Ross, Snyder’s HUGE credit repair scam, resulting in disciplinary action against the lawyer he had hired and the subsequent shutdown of Bradley Ross. According to my sources, Bellwether was the company involved with Bradley Ross and other activities during that time. Much more info and links to documentation of Snyder’s scams are at Stephen Snyder Seminars, Bankruptcy Advisor and Junior Partner scam.
What bothers me most about Snyder is that he never disclosed his ownership and affiliation with the companies he recommended at his seminars and in his newsletters.
Here is the link to the page with the lawsuits against Snyder referred to in the article:
So apparently Snyder’s 2010 bankruptcy was dismissed and now he refiled.
That’s bad news for all the people who bought into the BK Advisor / JPO scam. Unless they can prove FRAUD, their claims are probably NOT dischargeable. If anybody wants to get the bankruptcy filing documents available online at the bankruptcy court site I’ll be glad to post them. It would be a valuable resource for pro se filers.
Amazingly, I still get the occasional email or comment from truly naive Snyder devotees telling me what a wonderful person Snyder is and that he never charged them for anything and helped them so much. They just don’t get that SNYDER got the payments to Bradley Ross and that he got PAID by the lenders he recommended at seminars. Snyder knows that there are many gullible people who admire his looks and lavish lifestyle and they want to be just like him.
You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!
