Post Craig Morris Investigated for THEFT 
If you had any business dealings with Craig Morris of Legends Manufacturing or Craig Morris of Alexis Systems Inc, chances are you got scammed.

Craig Morris and his wife Rhonda Morris have been scamming businesses and individuals around the country for a very long time. The Anoka county prosecutor's office is investigating the couple and their businesses. Over the years, Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris have cheated and swindled over $1 million, according the Anoka prosecutor's office. Their victims are not limited to businesses and individuals in Minnesota. They had obtained products from companies in at least one other state (Washington) but they never paid for those products. In the fall of 2008, the Anoka prosecutor's office conducted a search of this couple's home and gathered a lot of evidence.

Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris also worked under the name of Alexis Systems, Inc. Their company Legends Manufacturing started out from Rock Rapids in Iowa. They moved their company to Lino Lakes in the summer of 2007 at the address:

532 Apollo Drive, Suite 10, Lino Lakes, MN 55014.

They mostly worked out their home in Andover, which was foreclosed in December of 2008.

Legends Manufacturing made some accessories for police cars and untility vehicles. Craig Morris was a smooth talker. If the prosecutor decides to charge this couple, both Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris could be facing a long jail time. Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris are in their 60s. It is truly pathetic to live a low life at this age. Their son Courtney Morris worked for Legends Manufacturing. Not sure what role he played in the whole thing.

Anyway, if you got conned by Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris or if you have any information about their scamming schemes, please contact Minnesota Anoka county investigator Tom Rachel: 763-323-5576.

Looks like they landed a Federal contract in 2007. They must be smooth talkers!

Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris may be smooth-talking, but they didn't talk their banks from foreclosing their home in Andover.

Craig Morris goes around telling people he has cancer and he is a tough fighter. I guess he wants to get sympathy from others by faking cancer.

Will be fun to see how he smooth-talks his way through his trials. The case against him is very strong and the amount of money he scammed is over $1,000,000. Hopefully the FBI will go after him. All he can afford now is a public defender.

I just found your story about the Morris's. I and another family member were defrauded by this couple. How did you get involved with these two criminals? What made you write this in the first place. I'm glad you did, but why?

We are in manufacturing as are most of their victims I beleive. Craig and Rhonda came in with some parts well over a year ago and wanted us to duplicate them, with some changes. I did do business with him, but DID and was one of the few to get ALL the monies owed. I refused to allow him more credit than others. We are a small laser cutting facility in Lino Lakes. My father and I did not trust that man from the 1st time he opened his mouth. Came in here telling my dad that WE would one day be working for him, he was going to buy this place. RIGHTO, not in our world. The WHOLE FAMILY are a group of criminals praying on people. I got his cop car, sold it and recoved our ONLY 833.00. I even made money on it. I have made it my one mission to go after them and spread the word about theyre trashy lifestyle. We were shocked when I found all the victims. I tried warning all of the shops I am pals with. It was alot, but most of them took the chance on him (manufacturing) thinking they didnt care they needed the work. All of them got screwed by him so I am making a point to get more info and spread it. I have given the detective pursueing him ALL my info, companies hes scammed, names, numbers and all. I want him to get a peice of everybody they have infected. I hope shortly he will, and Rhonda be serving yet ANOTHER visit to the big house. Please update me on your dealings with them. I have lists if you need them

Thanks for your reply. Tom Rachel told me today in an email that he turned the case over to the US Postal Service to have the US Attorney's office prosecute. It will be late summer before he expects a call back. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the quick reply. I knew this thing had to be a good forum! Hope its big-time, I will be so anxious to see the whole outcome. I have spent several evening hours finding things on those creeps. I was so heartbroken to see that there are really con artists in real life. I will be on the visiting list when he goes in. Obviously, I am not one of Craigs "favorite girls"~

I contacted the Postal Inspector's office and was told that this case has been forwarded to the US Attorneys' office. The US Attorneys' office will decide if they want to bring charges.

At least both the Anoka County investigator and the Postal Inspector think Craig Morris and Rhonda Morris should be prosecuted for what they have done. It sounds like this is a rather strong case.

Called for an update on 1-20-10. It has been turned over and approved for Grand Jury sapenas to be sent out. Taking a bit longer due to the Petters case. It is with Robert Strand at the US Attorneys Office. 651-293-3230 is his direct line. Should be SOON hopefully~
