Michael Schaefer, 55, charged with 88 felony counts in Johnson County Missouri District Court, was arrested on Thursday. Schaefer is accused of operating a ponzi scheme in which he sold interests in a purported manufactured housing development in Arizona through two businesses: Omnibus Inc. and Schaefer Enterprises. Each investor paid Schaefer nearly $11,000 and was promised a return. The venture unraveled when Shaefer started using new investments to pay earlier returns. Most investors were located near Kansas City, Missouri.
