Joseph McCool

Joseph “Joe” McCool allegedly solicits millions of dollars primarily from retirees for a European investment program he claims will provide them the good life in their golden years. Touting himself as a former successful manager of a private European trust, he promises investors they can’t lose their initial investments. But, instead of guaranteed returns, investors are left with nothing but story after story. After the FBI gets involved, investors are shocked to learn that Joe McCool is a convicted felon. McCool flees and is wanted for conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

James Hammes

Comptroller James Hammes allegedly diverts funds from his employer G & J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers into a secret bank account he sets up in the name of a company supplier. From there he transfers the money to his personal bank account. After G&J receives a tip from a confidential source, Hammes is summoned to what he believes is a regular meeting. But, it’s really a setup with the FBI. When Hammes is confronted about $8 million dollars gone missing, he demands to see a lawyer and leaves, never to be seen or heard from again. To add to the chase, his daughter and in-laws want him to provide answers to the mysterious death of his first wife.
