Case 1: Bank Robbing Babe
Street criminals turn to white-collar crime. The feds say Niesha Jackson teams up with her gangster boyfriend and orchestrates a nationwide credit card scheme. The Sacramento couple is convicted of running a network of scammers that stole more than $2.5 million from banks nationwide. But when the law closes in, the fraud's mastermind hits the road.
Case 2: The Vanishing Internet Millionaire
It was the get-quick-rich days of the dotcom boom. Among the companies that raise millions is a California-based online video startup with a celebrity pitchman and the promise of riches. The FBI says Jim Eberhart and his partner Eugene Carriere ran Yes Entertainment, a sham Internet company that allegedly bilked investors out of millions. When the feds come knocking, both men go on the run. Carriere is arrested in Thailand and sent back to the U.S., but Eberhart remains free until a chance encounter leads to his arrest.
