Niesha Jackson: Bank Robbing Babe
A fraud ring based in Sacramento, whose members include former gang members and pimps, orchestrates an elaborate scam to rob banks across the country. The teams are armed with only prepaid debit cards, and instructions from Sacramento on how to use unwitting tellers to help them collect thousands of dollars per transaction. One of the accused masterminds is Niesha Jackson. She admits to exploiting a flaw in the way banks handle prepaid debit card transactions, allowing her co-conspirators to collect millions in total. Jackson pled guilty to bank fraud but escaped before her sentencing. Authorities say she is a master of disguise.
James S. Eberhart: The Vanishing Internet Millionaire
James Eberhart allegedly defrauds investors in a telemarketing scheme that promises big returns, but his 800 victims never see any profits. Authorities say that Eberhart and a business partner raise millions to start a network of online video channels. Some investors fork over as much as $100,000, but never see any return. Instead, Eberhart allegedly transfers the money into offshore accounts in Hong Kong and Singapore then flees the country. In a surprise twist , after years aboard a sailboat as a fugitive, Eberhart is captured and deported from Malaysia in May, 2012 and has returned to Los Angeles to face fraud charges.
