Company President Darain Atkinson, 45, owes the company $28.2 million; and Vice President Cory Atkinson, 40, owes $20.5 million. It's not clear whether those amounts are separate from each brother's $25,000 weekly draw or the large disbursements made to keep them in comfort.Meanwhile, the brothers also spent lavishly on the company's Wentzville office that recently employed 1,100 people but not has just over 100 workers. Those purchases included a custom rug with the US Fidelis logo and a "cash machine" (see video below) in which top-selling agents could enter and grab as much money as possible.
The company paid $445,283 to a high-end home furnisher in Truckee, Calif., the Lake Tahoe resort community where Cory Atkinson owns a 4,695-square-foot home he bought in 2008 for $2.9 million.
Often, the company simply provided cash. Darain Atkinson got $500,000 on April 30; Cory Atkinson received the same amount as a cash advance on May 8.
