NewsChannel 3’s digging reveals two of the local owners of Mo’ Money Taxes may be a rap duo out of Memphis. Norfolk Mo’ Money customer Rhoda Williams regrets going there to get her taxes done.

“If I had seen him before I filed my taxes, I would have never used Mo’ Money,” says Williams.

She really wasn’t a fan of the next NewsChannel 3 discovery.

We pulled the Norfolk business licenses for Mo’ Money.

Keith Hill and Patrick Townsend’s names were on the licenses. Search warrants revealed that the men were from Memphis where the Mo’ Money Taxes headquarters is located.

A search of their backgrounds turned up a website for a rap group called “Swat Game.”

It says the group has an album due out soon.

“Are you serious?” asked Williams.

Even more serious is a Norfolk police investigation into local Mo’ Money locations.

Search warrants suggest customers’ returns may have been deposited into Mo’ Money employees’ accounts.

“You just feel like you want to give up,” says Williams.

Mo’ Money’s CEO addressed the company’s problems in a last minute Memphis news conference on Wednesday.

He still blames a computer glitch and the IRS for their problems.

He even specifically addressed hundreds of Hampton Roads customers waiting for their refund checks.

“To the people in Norfolk, to all the customers that filed with Mo’ Money Taxes, I apologize for any inconvenience you were caused. Trust me, you will get your refund,” says Markey Granberry.

“Grow up.  If you’re gonna operate a business, do it right. Stop coming on TV talking as if you don’t care about what’s going on down here in Norfolk,” says Williams.
