Jamaar Manlove Legal History
In 2011, the president of Florida Merchant Services, Jamaar Manlove, was convicted of two felony theft counts and three misdemeanor counts that included falsification of business records and tax evasion. Prosecutors alleged that Manlove promised nine people who were facing foreclosure that he would “get them cash from the sale of their homes, allow them to continue to live there as tenants, repair their credit, and give them the opportunity to purchase their homes back.” Instead, he allegedly “strip[ped] out the equity homeowners had built in their properties — from $10,000 to $100,000 — through fees at closing which were paid to either himself, his associates or entities he controlled.” Neither Jamaar Manlove nor Florida Merchant Services appears to have been the subject of legal action related to their payment processing services.
