James E Aldridge Jr and his wife, Shirley L Aldridge of both of Lee's Summit Missouri, were sentenced by the U.S. district Judge Dean Whipple, to federal prison without parole. On May 4, 2007 the Aldridges were convicted on five counts contained in a federal indictment of aiding and abetting each other to file false tax returns from 2001 to 2005, U.S. Attorney John Wood said in a release. The Aldridges had operated Concept Marketing International, which marketed trusts and a retail business selling American Silver Eagle coins. James Aldridge also conducted seminars at which he advised buyers of American Silver Eagle coins about how to avoid taxation by establishing a home-based business to deduct personal expenses. For $15,000, CMI members could buy a trust package that James Aldridge claimed would reduce their taxes by 97 percent or more and enable them to deduct 90 percent of their personal living expenses. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney William Meiners and investigated by IRS-Criminal Investigation.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
