John & Julieanne Dimitrion and Spiro Germenis: Mr. & Mrs. Mortgage Fraud
Julieanne Dimitrion and her husband John, convince distressed homeowners to relinquish their homes under the premise of improving their financial position. But, instead of investing the proceeds of the home sales, the Dimitrions use the money to fund their own lavish lifestyle and multiple families in Hawaii lose their homes. It’s nearly impossible to leave Hawaii without a trace, so how did this couple vanish into thin air?
Spiro Germenis: Heartless Hedge Fund Manager
Spiro Germenis is wanted for allegedly scamming more than 25 victims in a massive investment fraud scheme where no one is spared. Through the use of falsified financial statements showing excellent returns, Spiro allegedly steals from middle-class people and some senior citizens who lose their entire life savings. Spiro tells his wife he’s heading to a Mets playoff game, but instead buys a one way plane ticket out of JFK airport never to be heard from again.
