FBI's most wanted Social Security scam leader nabbed in Honduras: Report
07 December, 2017, 07:34
Eastern Kentucky Social Security lawyer Eric Conn had an unusual YouTube campaign underway to get himself appointed to President Obama's Social Security advisory board back in 2010.
When he disappeared June 2, Conn faced a dozen years behind bars for his role in a scheme that defrauded the Social Security Administration of $550 million.
Conn was still out on bail while awaiting sentencing when he cut off his ankle monitoring device and fled, with the help of a henchman.
After almost six months of being on the lam, fugitive Kentucky lawyer Eric Conn is where he belongs: Behind bars. The Technical Agency for Criminal Investigation (ATIC) had been following Conn for several weeks, according to the report.
"If in fact Eric has been lawfully captured and is legally returned, then. this comes as no surprise". The fraud reached into the hundreds of millions of dollars, mostly affecting his clients in impoverished parts of Kentucky and West Virginia, who then had to fight to try to keep their disability checks. "The FBI usually gets their man", White said in a statement.
The paper in Honduras reports Conn will be transferred to the United States on Tuesday.
A photo of Conn distributed by the office shows him with close-cropped, reddish-gray hair and a blue polo shirt sitting at a table, with police agents wearing ballistic vests and carrying assault rifles behind him. "Social Security." He fueled that persona with outlandish TV commercials and small-scale replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial at his office in eastern Kentucky.
Conn was indicted on 18 charges related to the massive fraud against Social Security. Timothy Dye went on disability for chronic arthritis after working decades in coal mines.
White said he anticipates prosecutors will go after Conn on those charges, though he will research contesting whether the government has authority to do so. It's just been nothing but pain and struggle and worries.
Attorney Ned Pillersdorf who represents Conn's former clients said the news of his capture came as a relief.
Griffith and Carver worked at the Huntington, W. Va., branch of the Social Security Administration's Office of Disability Adjudication and Review, and they began expressing concerns in 2005 about an administrative law judge and his relationship with Conn. Now, those hearings are almost complete, and so far about 700 have been found eligible to maintain the benefits, Pillersdorf said.
The FBI had been looking for Conn for about six months.
The FBI released photos of him taken at a Walmart and a convenience store in New Mexico a few days later, but for months had not released any additional information about his suspected whereabouts. Wyatt has pleaded not guilty to charges. An indictment said that in late April Wyatt crossed the U.S. -Mexico border in Nogales, Ariz., and Columbus, N.M., to check security measures.
