just asking why, you know, what happened? and i think were all wondering that. it is finals week here at lakeland university. given that and todays news... its a very stressful week for the students on this campus. in rural sheboygan county, a.j. bayatpour, fox 6 news. they call him taco tim. he's a wisconsin businessman who got elderly investors to bankroll his plan to sell taco-shaped fortune cookies. but polcyn finds he misled those investors and left some retirees in financial ruin. any good investor knows the keys to making money are principal... interest... and time. "i'm... workin' on 81 now."for jim frank and his wife, carol. time is precious. "we're too old to go back to work again."when the stock market
retirement savings took a major hit. so they thought it was meant to be when a local businessman offered to pay them 12-percent interest for a one-year loan. "we put a lot of blind faith..." "we certainly did." "..in what he said." seven years later, they have nothing to show for it but crushing debt. "hey tim, bryan polcyn with fox 6 news, could i have a minute?"now, the state of wisconsin is taking action against a man they once considered a trusted friend. "they found that he definitely had committed fraud."jim and carol frank had paid off their modest farmstead northwest of milwaukee. until
mortgage... and give him the money. 'he was able to get money from anyone.'mcquiston is president of "lucky taco," a now-defunct hustisford business that was supposed to produce taco- shaped fortune cookies. wrapped in plastic."they loaned him 30-thousand dollars to launch the business. then 100-thousand more... and 35-thousand more after that. 'he was wanting to buy a larger machine to fulfill a large order.'but mcquiston complained of equipment problems... and health problems... so the business never got off the ground. and he never paid them back. "why don't you stop and talk to me?"when we first approached mcquiston last year, he locked himself inside lucky taco. then, changed his mind and requested an interview. 'i have a great product."he insisted lucky taco was a good idea that just didn't pan out. 'that happens. businesses fail all the time.' 'thatsit. they do.' t that's not what him in trouble th the statefionsin.e sn
ople up for money all over southeastern wisconsin."i was flabbergasted!e failed to mention he already had other investors. "we practically fell on the floor."by the time the fox 6 investigators got involved, mcquiston owed at least eighteen people more than 2-point-6 million dollars. "nobody knew about each other. everybody thought they were the only person doin' this." 'why didn't you tell the investors about each other?''well, um, it wasnt asked and i, that wasnt pertinent at the time. i just didnt think it to mention that the tens of thousands of dollars in delinquent taxes he owes to the state and federal government. plus, more than a million dollars in unpaid court judgments.

'the more you learn, the deeper it seems to go.'neither hustisford police attorney found evidence that a crime had been committed. but after our investigation, the wisconsin department of financial institutions launched its own investigation. and in september, the state ordered mcquiston to cease and desist all offers or sales of securities. 'too many people have been defrauded by him.'that means he can't raise money anymore. and now, he's trying to avoid the debts he already owes. in october, he filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy. "we're gonna fight it."the franks can't afford their own lawyer, but
debt should be excused in bankruptcy court. in other words, if saving their home means putting up a fight... they'll make time. the u-s trustee has already recommended the bankrputcy case be thrown out, because mcquiston owes too much money. under chapter 13, there are limits to how much debt you can wipe away... and he is over the limit by a lot. mcquiston told the court he is reviewing his options and will decide what to do next by the next hearing scheduled for january 10th. bryan polcyn, fox 6 investigators. the last time we talkd we tried to reach him for comment on this story. he did not call back. and neither did his lawyer. three waukesha businesses -- busted. complaints about them have been coming in for awhile. what customers allege was happening inside. and what police found when they went undercover. plus, a six year old boy's bike -- stolen. the heroes who came to his rescue.
