Mike Lee a Fairfield Plantation resident and developer was sued along with his wife Lisa Hubl Lee and SunTrust Bank in December of 2016. The plaintiff in the case makes the accusation that he was defrauded of money by the defendants. Court documents filed in the lawsuit state that " Plaintiff shows that Defendant acted WILLFULLY and WANTONLY is his refusal to repay the Plaintiff’s investment plus the return on investment. Defendant coerced the Plaintiff into investing money with him and made representations that the investment would be safe and return a profit. Defendant assured that the profit would be virtually guaranteed due to the information provided to Defendant MIKE LEE by LISA LEE from Defendant SUNTRUST BANK."
This all stems from a real estate transaction that occurred in Douglasville. It appears that A Quality Storage in Douglasville on Fairburn Rd is owned by Michael Larry Lee, which is Mike Lee's legal name. This is where Mr. Stanley alleges that he and Mike L. Lee entered into an agreement to invest in a property located in Douglasville.
Mr. Stanley contends that on Feb 23, 2015 he wired 20,000 dollars to Harrison & Horan, P.C. for a real estate closing the following day in Mike Lee's name. According to Douglas County tax records, the property was purchased from Mike Lee on June, 29 2015 for substantially more money. Mike Lee has yet to return Mr. Stanley's money to him nor any return on his investment.
The Plaintiff says that he met Mike Lee and his wife Lisa Hubl Lee at Midway Baptist Church, and knew that Mike Lee was a board member for West Georgia Technical College. He also stated "I just thought that Mike Lee was an honest stand up guy...I was wrong." This story was first reported on by The Georgia Citizen. We have included a link to their article.
