Eric Bartoli is wanted for his alleged involvement in stealing millions from hundreds of investors across the United States and Latin America. Bartoli created and operated a company called Cyprus Funds, Inc. where he sold certificates of deposit and unregistered mutual funds to unsuspecting victims. He raised approximately $65 million from an estimated 1,000 investors, but law enforcement alleges that he used the money to fund his lavish lifestyle. An investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation results in an indictment, but Bartoli is nowhere to be found.
