Man charged after allegedly trying to scam Missouri governor

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Michigan man who allegedly tried to collect fake debts from Gov. Jay Nixon has been charged with a felony for alleged deceptive business practices.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster on Wednesday said StarProse Corporation CEO Jeffrey Scott Kowalski tried to get tax information and collect non-existent debts from the governor, lawmakers and others. Online court records on Wednesday didn’t list an attorney for Kowalski. Koster also filed a civil lawsuit against Kowalski.

Koster says Kowalski sent collection notices to more than 70 Missouri consumers, including Nixon, 50 state lawmakers, an associate circuit judge and a school superintendent.

The state previously sued Kowalski in 2004 for allegedly emailing school superintendents and asking for personal information, including their sexual orientations. A circuit court ordered Kowalski to stop.
