5Dimes - (last updated March 2019) - The body of 5Dimes owner Sean "Tony" Creighton was found March 28 after he disappeared in late September.  A dozen individuals have been charged with kidnapping the West Virginia native.  5Dimes, while solely owned by Creighton, has not skipped a beat since news of Creighton's disappearance.  Players are still advised to monitor this situation closely as 5Dimes has said little regarding the matter outside a terse statement acknowledging the company's founder was missing.
