The newest business venture of a local scam artist on parole didn't last long.
This week, a local judge ordered Nathan Fisher to cease all contact with senior citizens - virtually ending Fisher's month-old business that caters to the elderly.
Fisher started the concierge service last month, in the midst of his parole sentence. After the parole term expires, he'll serve 6 years on probation for writing more than $125,000 in bad checks here last summer.
Lifetime Concierge offers services to the elderly, including handling of their finances and bill-paying, according to the business' website, lifetimeconcierge.net.
Tuesday, however, Lancaster County Judge Dennis Reinaker granted an order requested by parole/probation officials. Fisher, now 22 and living in Lewisburg, is banned from contact with the elderly, including volunteer work, the judge ordered.
"He is to have absolutely no contact with senior citizens," prosecutor Todd Kriner said after the hearing," which, in effect, closes his operation.
Said defense attorney Cory Miller, "The business endeavor cannot continue under its present model."
Fisher served 6 months in prison before being paroled on a number of charges, including felony theft, identity theft and conspiracy.
Fisher and his wife, Tess Fisher, bought luxury cars, put a down payment on a home and obtained high-priced home goods while living in East Hempfield Township.
At sentencing, Miller claimed Nathan's "alter-ego" drove him to commit the crimes. Fisher said he was diagnosed with bipolar, obsessive-compulsive and personality disorders and stopped taking his medication last year, when the crime spree happened.
The business website was launched in late May, according to domain name records. It was still active Thursday.
Fisher initially tried to start the business with donated funds on gofundme.com, but the fundraising site quickly shut down the page. Fisher hoped to raise $5,000 in public donations, the page showed until it was closed. (No donations were believed to have been made.)
