Jack probably went to legal zoom, paid the fee and then looked up a promissory note and filled in the blanks.

A few hours ago, my father produced a copy to me of his Promissory Note (Joint and Several Contract) from Jack Brown, dated August of 2007. Before that, I was unaware that he (my father) had ever received one. This is not at all as I imagined the promissory notes others were mentioning. In this contract Jack promised to pay my dad the principal sum of his "investment" plus 10% per annum on the unpaid balance until paid or until default. There is no mention of specific places in which Jack was planning to invest. By not getting an exact game plan and not running in the opposite direction when Jack presented this "Promissory Note", my father and other victims made a bone headed mistake. The contract is in typical legal jargon or as I like to say it's in King James form (whilst I am sure that it contains a lot of important information, it is too damn hard to comprehend and understand) and is two pages in length. I do not know if he had it in generic form and simply filled in the client's personal information in the appropriate fields or if in fact an attorney drafted this for him. If the latter is the case, I would be interested in finding out whom the attorney was. I would like to know under what circumstance the contract was born and why it's content was never questioned. Fortunately, the contract for what it is, seems to be in order and would hold up in court if the case were typical. Unfortunately, getting a judgement on this type of tort and getting restitution are two entirely different things especially since the scope of this case presently puts it on yet another realm. Ramifications are sure to go deep and wide, with the victims once again getting screwed by Jack Brown and company. Though this is a moot point, for the record there is no notarization on the contract I have in front of me.

Hightailer or NY groove: Isn't a promissory note a loan from the legal perspective. You give money, get note that says how you will be paid back- no collaterial to secure payback unless stated in note.

A promissory note is exactly that; a promise to pay loaned money back at a later date, with or without interest. Bankruptcy and promissory notes are common. Involuntary bankruptcy isnít as common. I have questions, please, for the forum. How did he allegedly get away with this? Does he have a special way with his words and personality? Is he upbeat, happy and convincing or high pressure and damning? Did he make the individuals feel badly about their religion or commitment? Did he somehow threaten them in that they would be ostracized or refused by their religious organization or community if they did not do it? Did he allure them to prosperity and then tell them the moral thing to do was give him the money? What trait does he have that would convince these people to do what they have done? Iíve read the forum posts and not all of the victims are gullible bewildered widows. Some of the victims are rather intelligent and maybe even savvy. But it does seem that they all have the same thread of religion or a thread of community. Was he well liked or well feared? Did he entice the victims with his display of prosperity? Was he so very successful that everyone wanted a piece of whatever it was that he was doing? From the posts that give reference to their church, loving the Lord, paying in hell, etc., this looks very much like a fraud of affinity. What did he allegedly do to convince the victims to do what they did? What trait does he possess?

Jack is very personable, and presents himself as a very nice person that wants to help you maximize your money! He started out in his home and at first slowly got bigger then started with the Allianz and everyone thought he was just good at investing, and I'm sure people looked at what he was attaining and thought they could do the same with letting him invest their money. He is a smooth talker and made it seem that it was a great investment.

Jack was smiling, happy, loving, always hugging his friends and telling them that he loved them. He claimed to be a Christian and has taught Sunday school and preached at the pulpit. I have watched him talk about God and the things God has done for him with tears running down his cheeks. Jack seemed genuine to so many and always acted like he had your best interests at heart. He conned even those closest to him with his charming ways. I am still in shock over this. I trusted him like a brother and he stole from us all.

I agree with Lucy but at the same time most of the people were elderly and only looking to have a little for retirement medical or what have you maybe put kids thru college or just give grandchildren a better life He preyed on the elders and most trusted him. It is sad that he or anyone would do that.

He was a crook and con artist,plain and simple! He did a lot of people's taxes so he knew what they had. He went to church to hunt his prey. He got the elderly to trust him and then took advantage of them. He wasn't smart, I know him, he was a lazy simpleton! When I first meet him he was working for TVA as an apprentice pipe fitter, where he acted like he got hurt, which he didn't, that was another con! After that he pretended to be a bookkeeper and lived in a trailer. I do not know when he became a brilliant investor? Now the truth is out and the con is over and the whole bunch is headed to jail! Don't blame the poor people he stole from, they all just trusted and put their faith in the wrong person!

I still think Jack knew that sooner or later it was all going to go down especially after he started getting sick more frequently and I think he put money away somewhere to provide for #1 son and the queen bee Janet.

I'm not at all defending Jack Brown or his actions...but facts are facts and when I see something on here that's not the truth, it needs to be corrected. He was not hurt at tva, he was on disability because of his kidney disease, which it is fact that he had a kidney transplant...another thing, there are many elderly folks he may have conned, but also some very intellegent young people

He could have, but I don't think he was smart enough to hide money, he has been in a financial bind for a long time, he borrowed money from a friend of mine just to make payouts! Stupid, plain and simple!

Yes, Jack took the young and the old. He conned friends and family. It didn't matter if you had a little money or alot to Jack as long as he could get his hands on your money. He felt no remorse taking retirement money from the elderly. Jack only cared about getting money from whomever - regardless of their circumstance.

never said he was hurt, how could he, he never broke a sweat, just acted like he was hurt, like all the other lying freeloaders who played the same game at TVA!
