Busted! This was a pyramid scheme that fell so hard and is still falling. And, there is much more hidden money apparently in the Boston area. This start up vop company was a scam and they all made mad money, but you can’t spend in jail. Well, maybe a little bit of it. Monty Wilkinson who still remains the director of the DOJ has had a handle on this since nov. 2014, and more and more greedy partners of this scheme are coming back to America to get the tucked away cash. One of the main guys to pull this off, sent back his nephew to retrieve some and got caught.
“According to the complaint, in April 2014, federal agents searched the headquarters of TelexFree, Inc., in Marlborough, Mass. Later that day, Carlos Wanzeler, one of the founders of the company, allegedly fled to Brazil, his native country, where he has remained. Wanzeler and TelexFree co-founder James Merrill were indicted in July 2014 on charges that they operated TelexFree as a massive pyramid scheme. Merrill pleaded guilty to those charges in October 2016 and is awaiting sentencing.” According to the DOJ website.
