Joe Francis

My Ex-Accountant

SCREWED ME OVER

EXCLUSIVE

1015_joe_francis_article_tmz
Joe Francis claims his former accountant almost ruined him financially by fraudulently getting him involved in some bogus tax shelters and promising the IRS would be A-OK with it .... and it cost him more than $12 million and possibly a lot more.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the accounting firm, BDO Seidman, admitted to criminal conduct over the tax shelters and agreed to pay fines of $50,000,000.

Joe is seeking more than $20 million in damages, which might make a dent in the $40 million he owes Steve Wynn after losing a defamation lawsuit.

If he wants sympathy, he should look in the dictionary between sh*t and syphilis.

I hope this guy is living in a cardboard box by the time everyone gets through with him. He made millions taking advantage of girls who were vulnerable, often underage, and drunk most of the time. The epitome of S***BAG.....Thanks for your HUGE contribution to society's moral decay..you are a disease on society and no one will be upset if you're never heard from again.

Have you noticed that everything is everybody's fault but his? Must be a vast conspiracy to ruin the lives of innocent folks just trying to make an honest living. Yeah, right...

What is it with this guy?!? His life is filled with drama of the legal kind. You made your money, some may think in a slime ball way, but you made it! Go live your life!!! Sheesh! Stay out of the negative scene man. Get it together...Do something different. Be still...there's a "t" and no "y" in still.

Hopefully he'll end up in a prison cell with one of the fathers of the girls he had in his videos. A big, mean father.
