When the greedy get fearful, they run.
Sometimes they hide in plain sight, like David Kaup, who pleaded guilty in 2012 to a series of loan frauds in California. But he never told his family about the case.

In fact, he went to Las Vegas, started a new life, and eluded authorities for nearly four years until his case was featured on an episode of American Greed: The Fugitives.
