Four Men Convicted of $18M Global Investment Fraud Scheme
Office of Public Affairs U.S. Department of Justice
A federal jury in the Western District of Arkansas convicted four men yesterday for their lead roles in an investment fraud and money laundering conspiracy that cheated victims out of more than $18 million.
“The defendants abused their positions of trust to entice victims into parting with more than $18 million,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “The defendants then used their financial backgrounds to systematically launder the money through a web of international bank accounts. This case stands as a stark message to those who defraud others for their personal gain: you will be found, you will be prosecuted, and you will be convicted.”
