URGENT >> BULLETIN >> MOVING: Thanh-Viet ‘Jeremy’ Cao Sentenced To 30 Years In Federal Prison; Ponzi Schemer Also Filed False Liens Against Federal Officials, Prosecutors Said

BULLETIN: Convicted Ponzi schemer Thanh-Viet “Jeremy” Cao, who also was accused of filing false liens against federal officials and has been linked to the “sovereign citizen” movement by the Anti-Defamation League, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison in the Ponzi case.

Cao was convicted in December 2010. The U.S. Secret Service and the IRS handled the probe.

In July 2010, Cao was charged criminally with filing false liens for tens of millions of dollars against federal officials. He also was accused of filing for a false tax refund for the astronomical sum of $82 billion.

  1. “60 Minutes” did a segment on “Sovereign Citizens” on Sunday, 15 May 2011. That program and some extra parts that didn’t make it to the TV program can be seen online at: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7366128n&tag=pop;videos

    Bottom line: Some among the movement represent a much larger threat than I’d previously realized.

    Hello Pat,

    Thank you for sharing that link. I hope people take the 13 or so minutes required to watch the “60 Minutes” segment. The story is chilling.

    Donna Lee Wray-Kane filed a lawsuit in Florida District Court over what she calls “torture killings and civil rights violations,” and is asking for damages of at least $75,000 each for the deaths of her husband and stepson — to be paid in gold “at $38 per troy ounce,” according to the complaint.
