Wanted Fugitive Flees, Later Found Dead

Something as simple as scamming for money led this stockbroker to believe that there was no hope. A 62 year old fugitive from Indiana, Phillip Ferguson, was found dead in Oregon after disappearing for 12 years. With a gunshot wound to the head, it is believed that he had a run in with the FBI and two local police officers and attempted to flee. He was found dead in the back of his pickup truck next to a rifle. His case had been placed on the America's Most Wanted list for the $30 million that he scammed from investors and the 90 counts of security violations he had against him. Ferguson was selling investments that basically didn't exist and the majority of the victims were elderly people putting aside money for secure investments.

There are some severe consequences for some of the cybercrimes that are considered a felony. They could leave you in prison for several years, but this internet crime should not have cost Ferguson his life. Chapter 164 of the ORS of the Oregon Statutes lists the law codes regarding money laundering. These crimes could be seen as a Federal offense which would then bring about a Federal investigation leaving you way in over your head. A strong defense case can still be developed through careful research and honed skills that only come with experience. With over 35 years of experience this is exactly what you will find with a Polk County internet crime attorney at Ayo and Iken, PLC.
