UPDATE: Renner Begins Sentence In Tax Case; INetGlobal Operator Housed In Minnesota

Steve Renner, the operator of the Minneapolis-based INetGlobal autosurf, is an inmate at the Federal Prison Camp (FPC) in Duluth, Minn., according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP).

Renner, 55, was sentenced in May to 18 months for income-tax evasion. He was indicted in September 2008 and convicted in December 2009.

The Duluth FPC is a “minimum security” facility located at the former Duluth Air Force Base. FPCs have “dormitory housing, a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, and limited or no perimeter fencing,” according to the FBP. “These institutions are work- and program-oriented; and many are located adjacent to larger institutions or on military bases, where inmates help serve the labor needs of the larger institution or base.”

Renner was listed last week as in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and “in transit” to an unnamed federal facility. For security reasons, there may be lag time between when a federal prisoner is being transported to a facility and when he or she is listed as an inmate at a specific facility.

As of this morning, Renner was listed as Inmate No. 14166-041 at FPC Duluth. Renner’s conviction occurred prior to allegations by the U.S. Secret Service that he was operating a Ponzi scheme through INetGlobal and related businesses.

A federal probe into Renner’s business practices continues. He has not been charged with a crime, and has denied wrongdoing.

  1. Those who are US tax payers may be interested to know that Duluth FPC is listed in one of the best places to go to prison.

    The Duluth FPC is noted for it’s access to musical instruments – Steve Renner is also noted for his blues guitar playing so he may be able to get some practice in. I wonder if there is a gift shop where he can spend some of the $150K he will be getting from the court release funds?

  2. Good! I’m glad Steve Renner is going to prison! He is a crook and a scam artist! I hope he’s found guilty in the inetglobal ponzi scam as well, so he can rot in prison!

    I thought all blogers should re-study the definition of words: bias vs. non-bias.

    Or in your case…scam vs non scam. Bias has nothing to do with determining what is a scam or not.
