Perry’s Forensic Unit Helps Uncover Investing Fraud
1 million dollars is no small deal. Especially when it’s been stripped from you illegally. Unfortunately, for James Vuksic of Marietta, he’s had to be the one to bear the brunt of the largest fraud case Washington County has ever seen. Perpetrator Kendall Richards approached him with an elaborate funding opportunity that was projected to make him a sizable return on his investment. The plan seemed legitimate and profitable at first glance; however, months into it and over a million dollars later, nothing had materialized.
Paper and money trails were difficult to track, though, as the plan was to originate in Canada with the purchase of vehicles at Canadian auto auctions. An entire team of investigators worked tirelessly to determine and prove the fraud. Perry & Associates forensic unit teamed up with the Sheriff’s Detective Bureau, Interpol, the W.V. State Police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, U.S. Customs and the U.S. Treasury Department Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
