Series Takes Viewers on the Hunt to Catch the Most Wanted White-Collar Fugitives
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., September 26, 2013—On Thursday, October 3rd at 10PM ET/PT, CNBC's original primetime series, "American Greed: The Fugitives," returns to the network's lineup with six all-new episodes. The series focuses on active cases of alleged white-collar criminals, accused of orchestrating elaborate scams to dupe investors and to ultimately evade capture. CNBC interviews law enforcement, prosecutors and victims, all sharing the goal of bringing these fugitives to justice.
The series kicks off with the story of Victor and Natalia Wolf, who are wanted for their alleged involvement in a massive real estate-related scam. The Wolfs stand accused of conducting a fraudulent investment scheme from 2004 – 2006, luring Americans and Russian immigrants to invest in real estate with false promises of high rates of return. The couple throws lavish parties on yachts and drives a $325,000 Maybach, but the good times are allegedly financed in part by the 100 or more victims of the scam who collectively have lost $20 million.
Upcoming episodes include a group who bilked Medicare and insurance companies for an estimated $70 million; a director of a southern Georgia bank who is wanted in connection with an allegedly bogus multi-million dollar investment scheme; and a former CEO wanted for allegedly defrauding investors by misrepresenting annual revenues, expenses and earnings.
The series is narrated by actor Stacy Keach and produced exclusively for CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, by Kurtis Productions.
CNBC's "American Greed: The Fugitives" will air on Thursday nights beginning October 3rd. The series will have six new episodes.
