The Securities and Exchange Commission accuses the owner of a bankrupt Spokane-based payday loan business with conducting a massive Ponzi scheme.
The civil complaint alleges that Doris “Dee” Nelson stole investor money to pay for an upscale lifestyle that included expensive cars and gambling jaunts to Las Vegas.
Nelson lives with her family in Colbert. The SEC alleges she defrauded investors in her company, Little Loan Shoppe, by misrepresenting the profitability and safety of their investments and giving them the false impression that their money was being used to grow her business.
