Given all the talk and rumors flying around about our hometown Pilot Flying J and the FBI fraud investigation, I thought it might be helpful to collect the information in one location.
I’m not vouching for the reporting, so please make your own judgment.
Pilot Flying J hires prominent attorney as a “special independent counsel” to investigate the fraud claims.
Video: Pilot Flying J owner Jimmy Haslan spoke about the FBI raid on the company last week, describing it as the “most painful 48 hours of business” he’s ever seen. In it he outlined the company’s five-step plan to get back on track.
In order for the FBI to get a search warrant someone must file an affidavit that contains facts that would convince a Federal Court Judge to issue the warrant. The 120 page affidavit that is file can be found at this link.
Finally, Pilot posted a statement on its Facebook page.
Knoxnews reports that petitions to certify class action suits against Pilot Flying J have been filed in Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas.
Management at Pilot Flying J clearly have their hands full on this one.
Do you subscribe to the thought that where there’s smoke there’s fire? Or are you willing to wait until all the facts come out to make your decision about the management of Pilot Flying J? Let me know in the comments below.
