For years, Chris Balsiger ran the nation's biggest clearinghouse of discount coupons redeemed by consumers at supermarkets. But he still didn't care too much for the industry.
"It's a lying, cheating, dirty business," he says.
Now the 54-year-old multimillionaire is facing a 27-count federal indictment, charged with leading a scheme that bilked some of the nation's largest coupon-issuers out of at least $250 million. He denies the charges.
