FBI - Gotcha - Hate Crimes Against Amish, Part 2

Hate Crimes Against Amish, Part 2

Mollie Halpern: Perpetrators in an FBI closed case received their sentences earlier this month, but their actions continue to evoke fear among the Amish community.
Michael S. Sirohman: The entire Amish community—at least from New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan—they’re all very aware of this community and still fearful of it.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern, and this is Gotcha, the FBI’s closed case of the week.
Sixteen members of an Amish sect in Bergholz, Ohio launched multiple attacks against other members of Amish communities. In some instances, the attackers and victims were related. Case Agent Michael Sirohman…
Sirohman: They believed it would help bring their victims closer to God by doing this to them.
Halpern: The attackers wanted to shame their victims by cutting and shaving their hair and beards with scissors and horse shears.
Sirohman: The hair and beard of members of the Amish community are symbols of their religious faith.
Halpern: Some victims were also injured.
Sirohman: They wanted pictures to show how funny and embarrassed their victims looked afterwards.
Halpern: For more on this case, visit

The FBI - Investment Fraud / Wire Fraud Charges:

The FBI Podcasts and Radio:

Ahmed Alabadi

Mollie Halpern: An Iraqi poet used the power of his words to cheat his own people out of more than $2 million.
Philip Reed: They said their lives were completely ruined by what he did.  
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the FBI, and this is Gotcha, the Bureau’s closed case of the week. Ahmed Alabadi, a dual citizen of Iraq and the United States, persuaded about 3,000 Iraqis living in the U.S. and overseas to invest in him and his company, Fedek Group. Alabadi promised he would double their money in just eight to 10 months. Alabadi and his associates also claimed he was helping to re-build Iraq. Case Agent Philip Reed of the Detroit Division says…
Reed: They definitely used the economic condition of Iraq to tug at people’s heartstrings.
Halpern: Alabadi’s investment fraud scheme was mostly a cash-only operation—making it a challenge to track the money. Agents got a search warrant for Alabadi’s e-mail account and discovered exchanges that showed…
Reed: …that he was planning a scheme to defraud investors.
Halpern: Alabadi was sentenced to prison for nearly five years on wire fraud charges. He must also pay more than $2 million in restitution.

Laser Attacks on the Rise

Mollie Halpern: The number of reported laser attacks on aircrafts is soaring.
George Johnson: This is almost becoming an epidemic.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau and this is FBI, This Week. Pointing a laser at an aircraft is called “shining.” The number of shining incidents in the U.S. this year is projected to be 3,700- compared to just 283 incidents in 2005.
A law put into effect this year makes shining a federal offense punishable by up to five years behind bars and up to $11,000 in fines per incident. George Johnson is a supervisory federal air marshal who serves as a liaison officer with the FBI…
Johnson: Aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft is dangerous and reckless, just don’t do it.
Halpern: Captain Robert Hamilton of the Air line Pilots Association International has been lased more than once. He explains why shining is so dangerous for those in the cockpit and on the ground.
Robert Hamilton: I had temporary blindness, my eyes were burning, it caused disorientation.
Halpern: For more information visit

FBI Forensic Accountants

Mollie Halpern: The FBI is tackling increasingly complex financial crimes with the use of its forensic accountant program.
I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week.
The nearly 400 forensic accountants in the Bureau collect, analyze, and investigate financial data for FBI cases. They hold advanced degrees and undergo 12 weeks of training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Section Chief Timothy Gallagher of the Financial Crime Section says the forensic accountants work side-by-side with the agents.
Timothy Gallagher: They do everything an agent does except for execute arrest warrants and carry a gun.
Halpern: A Forensic Accountant Support Team—which is like a SWAT team for accountants—is dispatched from Headquarters to quickly respond to an investigation anywhere in the country.
Gallagher: They are not attached solely to white-collar crime squads. They work international terrorism cases, they work espionage cases, they work public corruption cases…we’ve had them assigned to cyber cases as well.
Halpern: For more information, visit

The FBI - "Crime in the United States" - Podcast:

Mollie Halpern: Violent crime in the United States is down for the fourth year in a row. I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week.
The FBI’s annual Crime in the United States report shows violent crimes in 2010 dropped 6 percent compared to the previous year’s figure. Property crime also decreased for the eighth straight year, falling 2.7 percent. David Cuthbertson, the assistant director of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division…
David Cuthbertson: I think you could attribute the reduction in crime across the board to very effective policing. This country has very, very effective law enforcement at the state, local, federal, and tribal level.
Halpern: The FBI compiles the data from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies from across the country.
Cuthbertson: The FBI, in conjunction with our law enforcement partners, certainly will not rest on our laurels as we see crime go down. We will continue the fight to make this country as safe as we possibly can.
Halpern: For more information, visit That’s what’s happening at the FBI, This Week.

The FBI - Podcasts & Radio - Affinity Fraud Scheme:

Mollie Halpern: It’s an FBI white-collar crime case involving a family business that exploited people’s faith, trust, and hope.
Daniel Hemmersmeier: There was no underlying business, just a massive fraud.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is Gotcha. Roy Flucker, Jr. and his son and daughter targeted African-Americans at churches to market his business. Special Agent Daniel Hemmersmeier…
Hemmersmeier: People really believed that Mr. Flucker was a religious person and that he would never be out to hurt them.
Halpern: But, that’s exactly what he did to nearly 2,000 victims in Chicago and across the country who were bilked out of $10.7 million. Flucker promised people a 200 percent profit in one year for investing in his company’s financial program. The company’s housing program purportedly provided a way for people to own their own homes within five years. In reality…
Hemmersmeier: They didn’t make the necessary payments to pay off anyone’s home.
Halpern: An FBI forensic accountant examined the company’s bank accounts. The Bureau and its law enforcement partners gathered evidence that landed Flucker and his children in jail. This is the FBI’s closed case of the week.
