Hendersonville man indicted for theft & money laundering, son possibly involved

A Hendersonville, Tennessee man has been indicted for stealing more than $60,000 from his employer, according to criminal courts. His son may have known about or been involved in the scams, say insiders.

Roger Finchum Sr. allegedly took money from MedRx Systems’ account at SunTrust Bank for purchases of snacks, fuel, and groceries in mid-2011. His son, Roger Finchum Jr. told coworkers his father had died but no record sustains this allegation.

Finchum Sr. was the founder, chief executive officer, president and chairman of the company Snapshot, Inc. out of Goodlettsville, Tennessee. Snapshot Inc., was incorporated in Nevada in 1999 as Globig.com Inc. and changed its name to Snapshot, Inc. on August 3, 2000. Since inception, the company has lost $1.14 million. In April 2011, Finchum, Sr. was listed as a director of MedRx in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing (see HERE). MedRX is a Hendersonville electronic health records developer.

The indictment was filed April 12, 2013 in Criminal Court (State of TN., # 2013-B-963). Roger Finchum Sr. was indicted on one count of theft of property and on two counts of money laundering. He used the company credit card for personal items. He also withdrew cash from the business account, without MedRx approval, for his own use. See also HERE.

Finchum, Jr. had started a job in a factory in May 2013. In September - October 2013, Finchum, Jr. began acting sorrowful over the health issues he said his father was facing, say former coworkers and friends. He would use his cellphone and leave his workstation to talk to his father. He would run late to work. He then announced his father had died and took at least one day off to attend the funeral. "We all felt sorry for him," says a former coworker and friend who asked not to be named. Finchum, Jr. told everyone he sold his home, a large two-story brick home in a Hendersonville subdivision. He told coworkers he no longer needed such a big house. Surprisingly, he then reported purchasing a 3,000 square foot home with a three car garage outside of Nashville. "He told everyone he was an ex-marine," says a coworker, "and he had a lot of money saved up plus his retirement."

Records reveal the Hendersonville home is located at 100 Newport Circle, an address also used by Finchum, Sr.

Then Finchum, Jr. walked out on the factory job, demanding his coworker/girl friend also leave. He had a dispute with a supervisor and, rather than work it out, he left angry. His girlfriend lived with him only a short time before fleeing, sources report, due to alleged abuse. Friends report they saw a side to him that was abusive and frightening.

Recently, his friends and former coworkers discovered much of what Roger Finchum Jr. told them were lies. The Hendersonville home sits empty; it has not been sold. There is no 3,000 square foot home. Finchum, Jr. had to go live with a relative as he was homeless. A person close to him has searched but cannot locate a death certificate or any proof of Finchum, Sr.'s death. "We think he (Finchum, Sr.) took that money and fled the country," says a source after hearing of the indictment. "And Roger (Jr.) is either involved directly or knows about it all."

Both the Finchums have been called "scammers" on a website.
