I was asked to become a partner of Lyons Insurance & Real Estate, Inc. by Mike Lyons (owner) in 2004.  I agreed.  He then invited me to become a member partner of an Insurance Group that serviced county entities (Wayne County Insurance Services, Richmond, IN).  The 11 member group split the commissions each year with each member taking home 2 commission checks annually.  I was duped out of my commissions and instructed to deposit my commission checks into our agency (Lyons Insurance & Real Estate, Inc.) advising me that this is how its done in businesses. 
Meanwhile Mike Lyons kept his commissions personally.  Mike Lyons of Lyons Insurance conned me into believing he was making me a "partner" in his agency.  And that putting my commissions into "our agency" account would be "investing" and growing our "mutual business". [continued below]....
.....  In the 8th year of this partnership, I decided I did not want to "invest" in our agency and was threatened and fired.


Mike Lyons then had his friend, the Wayne County Prosecutor, Mike Shipman (whom he vacations with in Vegas) bring charges of theft (for cashing my OWN CHECK payable to ME) to intimidate me into giving Lyons my commission check.


No one seems to want to take on this powerful group.  The prominent business owners control the Wayne County Commissioners including Prosecutors office.  Even attorneys are backing away fearing the County may damage their careers in Wayne County.
