Going on a close to a decade ago, before I was a Phoenix Private Investigator, I was asked by a friend of mine to look at some legal issues he was having.  The subject Jeffrey A. McCoon had purchased thousands of credit card debts and filed liens with the county recorders office in Arizona and California.  The story I took to The Arizona Republic hit the front pages and you can read it here.  Here is a link to some of the California activity: Local Businessman Accused of Fraud

The Orange County District Attorneys office had several dozen charges against him as well and after 5 years dismissed all but one felony.  5 years for the judicial system to wind it’s way through for him to plead out to one out of hundreds of charges?!?!  Outrageous you Say?  He got probation for that charge if my memory serves me.  Sad.  But wait, there’s good news!  Jeff McCoon was on probation in Colorado for bilking businesses out of over $300,000.00.  By taking a felony plea his probation was revoked.  Where is Jeffrey A McCoon now?

Jeff McCoon has been released on parole and it appears that he may be going by the name Jeffrey Allen to solicit and collect debt of behalf of his mothers Kathryn Lauer aka Kathy McCoon‘s agency Glendale Acceptance.  If Googled you will see complaints by consumers against the company, some businesses that are disgruntled clients of the collection agency.  You will find documents in Federal court whereby Glendale Acceptance was previously known as Crane Valley Acceptance.  In the exhibits you will see checks signed by her for the company.  The address for her is listed as 40798 Griffin Dr Oakhurst, CA is owned by, JAM 041966 family trust as of 02/23/2018.  JAM is of course Jeffrey Allan McCoon with his birth date.  Lots of questions, but I have the answers.  If you need assistance with these two, communicate with me.

It would appear some of the other consumers out there are starting to fight back by getting the information out as seen here.

  1. I knew Jeff and knew him when he did the same thing to me on this scam…however, he ended up signing off on the debt and calling it good..no more lien…I am not sure why he signed off but he did and I was grateful…he called out of the blue and told me it was my lucky day…and it was…my heart goes out to his family..it’s hard for me to hate someone who turned my situation around and made a bad thing good…

  2. Jeff McCoon didn’t do that because he was a nice guy. The Attorney General In Arizona and California made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. I get your feelings though.

  3. Thank you so much for the update on this guy. Cynthia, you need counseling. You didn’t ‘know’ that guy. Although it is generous to say, I could never “get’ anyone’s feelings regarding this criminal unless it was ill will. I hope he dies in prison, and horrible death, because he is a bad person.

  4. I met Jeff a couple of times in Oakhurst. My girlfriend befriended his wife for a short time. He seemed like a nice guy. I had no idea, the schemes he had perpetrated. Too bad he ruined his young family’s reputation in this small town.
    Reading about his crimes in the newspaper informed the community with the extent of his shocking fraud.
    Sad that this smart guy didn’t use his knowledge for something good and constructive, instead of causing pain and suffering for so many people.
