A Most Generous Criminal
- The Con
- McLean is managing millions for his satisfied clients. He claims to invest their money in his own name and offers unsecured promissory notes with returns of 10 to 20 percent. It's a highly unorthodox arrangement. But, the investments are not only unusual — they are illegal.
- Living The Dream
- The once low-profile investor now shouts success. He owns million dollar homes and rides around town in his own chauffeured limousine. He's a philanthropist…donating millions to his favorite causes including the Country Music Hall of Fame. McLean's spending is out of control.
- Tragic Tale
- The limelight fades. Investors become suspicious of a scam. A bank calls in a loan. The U.S. Attorneys Office lays out its criminal case. For McLean and his victims, the worst is yet to come.
