U.S. Fidelis Founders Indicted on Multiple Felony Charges

ST. CHARLES, MO. (KMOX) — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster announced a multi-count indictment against the two brothers who founded and ran the auto warranty firm, U.S. Fidelis.

The indictment lists fourteen counts against Darain Atkinson, and thirteen counts against his brother Cory Atkinson.

They are alleged to have kept refunds due to consumers, charged fees in excess of that stated in contract, and told consumers they would get prorated refund if they canceled intending to keep a portion of any refund.

The two are being arraigned in the St. Charles County court Wednesday afternoon. Their attorneys waived the formal reading of charges and entered not-guilty pleas.

The Atkinsons were freed after posting ten percent of the $250,000 bond and surrendering their passports.

U.S. Fidelis filed for bankruptcy in March 2010 amid accusations it used illegal telemarketing ploys and sold worthless warranties.

    I dated this loser for a period of time, he dumped me when I found out I was pregnant with his baby (about the same time I found out about his nasty crack habit), He went on to marry my BF behind my back and had four children with her! I was devastated when my baby did not survive. I will pray for him and his family.

    Darain Atkinson funneled funds from U.S. Fidelis through his wife, Miyong (Mia) for years. Miyong’s parents were poor when she married Darain. Now they own three homes, wear Rolex watches, drive a Mercedes; nonetheless, they’ve managed to stay out of the spot light and was not named in the bankruptcy complaint brought forth by the creditors of U.S. Fidelis.

    Darain’s nest egg is located in Sacramento, California, where Mia’s parents reside.

    The IRS hasn’t gotten a whiff of this yet; seven years of monthly stipends of stolen funds from U.S. Fidelis, cash payments (one was for $500,000), “gifts,” etc.

    The parents (Chun Kim) reside at 8181 Folsom Blvd. #120, Sacramento, California 95826. They just recently purchased this property with cash.
