Jon Gosselin needs to ask Kate for a loan STAT, because he was just socked with a million dollar judgment for stealing from his former company.

Jon worked for Securus, which sells electronic payment processing systems to merchants. It's the thing that attaches to iPhones to accept credit cards.

So Jon was a sales manager who was supposed to go out in the field and hawk the product. Instead, Securus claims he was a Benedict Arnold, convincing merchants to abandon the company for a competing company he was secretly helping.

Securus sued Jon and he didn't respond, so the judge entered a default judgment for more than a million bucks. 

We tried calling Jon ... not sure if his phone's still in service.
