Millions of customers of Cisco’s three gas stations along the Georgia border with North Florida have been defrauded in a multi-million dollar scheme. Now a federal grand jury has indicted the owner, a Camden County businessman, and his family members.
From 1995 through March 2008, the family is accused of deliberately miscalibrating the fuel pumps giving consumers less fuel than they paid for. Millions of dollars were lost by cheating customers; at least $7 million total said the Acting U.S. Attorney Joseph Newman in announcing the 17-count indictment.
The stations were located along I-95. Besides the one in Camden County, another was a truck stop in St. Marys, and one in Kingsland, Georgia that all catered to traffic between Florida and Georgia. The stations were reported to be very popular and always busy.
