Jeff Parsons' corporate bankruptcy case appears to be winding down
A little more than three years after Jeff Parsons and THR & Associates filed for personal and corporate bankruptcy, the corporate bankruptcy appears to be winding down. A trustee's motion filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Springfield last week to sell a 2010 Haulmark trailer that once belonged to THR & Associates included a notice of intent to close the case. Parsons' personal bankruptcy case remains open. THR and Parsons filed for bankruptcy in September 2012 after the buy-sell-trade company Parsons founded collapsed amid allegations of fraud and thousands of bounced checks written to sellers nationwide.
Parsons founded THR & Associates in Springfield in the fall of 2010 with a promise of hundreds of local jobs and eventual sales of $1 billion annually. The business strategy included buying shows at hotels and convention centers nationwide. Coins, collectibles, antiques, jewelry and other valuables purchased at the shows were resold through THR. By early 2012, the company was the subject of hundreds of consumer complaints of bounced checks written at THR purchasing events. At the time of the bankruptcy filings in the fall of 2012, Parsons and THR claimed more than $100 million in debts. A judge denied debt relief in both THR's corporate and Parsons' personal bankruptcy cases after concluding Parsons had fraudulently attempted to hide assets and transfer cash. Trustees in both cases have conducted dozens of auctions, selling off warehouses full of items purchased by THR and Parsons' personal collections and property. The auctions included the nearly $1 million sale of his former home and real estate in Athens. Another of the largest sales brought $385,000 from Parsons' collection and $850,000 for a lodge and hunting property Pike County. What's next? The personal bankruptcy case remains open, according to court filings, which could mean additional sales of assets. Parsons also faces court-ordered payments in the separate case of $12.3 million in overtime and penalties owed to approximately 150 former THR employees.
Mills set an initial deadline of Nov. 16 for Parsons to report on payments or face possible jail time.

It's been a bad couple of years for little Jeffrey Parsons, who first surfaced on the Guns Save Life radar in 2010 when his show rolled into Champaign-Urbana, IL and offered one of our Colt collectors $225 for a pair of $10,000+ Civil War-era Colts.
Now employees are breaking bad on the owner, telling reporters and investigators that they won't be going to jail to shield little Jeffrey from the long-arm of the law.
Former employees say that CEO Jeffrey Parsons and what they call his extravagant spending habits, are to blame for the bounced checks. Parsons is currently facing civil and criminal charges at the federal, state, and local levels and owes the IRS millions.

Chicago, IL - On April 9, 2014 the United States District Court of Central Illinois entered a $12.2M judgment against Jeffrey Parsons, owner of THR & Associates and Treasure Hunters Roadshow.
Parsons and THR Associates saved millions in payroll costs by failing to follow the law. We intend to force Parsons to comply with the ruling and properly pay his former employees the earned wages the Court has found are due and owing. If Parsons believes he can escape justice by hiding assets, he will soon learn he is mistaken.
