Authorities: $600M Scheme Incubated In NC Town
Months later, people in Lexington are wondering what's next.
Kenneth Bell, the court-appointed receiver, said ZeekRewards may have taken in $800 million. So far, he's recovered $312 million. Hundreds of millions were paid out to investors. Just how much is missing? He doesn't know.
Myers said the community is still recovering â¿¿ but the wounds are deep. People are wondering why investigators didn't act more quickly and why no one, including Burks, has been charged with a crime."There are thousands and thousands of victims who might not have lost a penny had the government intervened more quickly," she said.
