Description

Paul R. Johnson went to Southern Florida in 1998, making quick business friends and raising millions from investors for his package delivery service. But complaints from clients raised suspicion of the company, and caught the attention of the Business Journal. After a series of stories, the SEC, IRS and Dept. of Justice started looking into Link Express, too. Finally Johnson was arrested for securities fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.
