Defendant in Subscription Fraud Lawsuit Sues Former Business Partner

In May 2016, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in southern Oregon against dozens of third-party subscription companies who allegedly defrauded consumers of more than 375 publications nationwide by charging inflated renewal rates. Dennis Simpson, now living in San Diego, was named in that lawsuit along with business partner Jeffrey Hoyal and dozens of individuals and companies. Simpson has filed a $5 million lawsuit in Jackson County Civil Court against Hoyal, alleging he embezzled millions from Simpson and another partner, reports the Mail Tribune.
