Jacqueline Stanfill, a financial planner from Knoxville, who was charged with multiple felonies, decided to take a plea deal. The charges stemmed from an alleged fraud scheme that cost at least ten investors between $3.5-$9.5 million. Charles Schwab Investment Co. Inc. alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigation that it was receiving calls from clients of Stanfill regarding Schwab accounts that did not exist. Stanfill also faces civil litigation for the alleged scheme.
