two tier system in America

Donald Trump lauding his university, courtesy NY Times.

When the presidential front runner is involved, it is all hush hush. I am referring to Trump University that is now the focus of lawsuits of former students claiming that he defrauded them.
See NY Times story here...http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/01/us/politics/donald-trump-university.html?&target=comments&hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&modref=HPCommentsRefer&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0#commentsContainer

Hell, I committed immigration fraud and was thrown in jail worse than a dog, to be in the lions den filled with human gladiators who actually practiced home invasion wrestling techniques in FCI Fort Dix. Imagine a 6'7 350 pound human being sitting on you. That is what I endured in federal prison.

Now if you are a billionaire like Trump you can get away with a lot because everyone thinks he will share his billions. He is there to only aggrandize himself. If Trump becomes president get ready for golden statues of him all over Washington DC and it will paid by taxpayer expense. Wake up America. Most rich people are selfish and only care about themselves. And remember this, as noted by the late Stanley Roy Root, Esq, "with every fortune there is a felony."

Former DA Hynes office under federal probe

DA Hynes in earlier days, courtesy NY Post

According to the NY Post, "Indictments could be imminent as a federal grand jury meets this week in an ongoing probe of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office under former prosecutor Charles Hynes, a source told The Post.
Investigators have been scrutinizing the operation of the office, including allegations that Hynes improperly used money forfeited by criminals.
Hynes, meanwhile, recently suffered a “serious and incapacitating stroke,” according to his lawyer’s office. Hynes, 81, served as DA for 23 years before losing a re-election bid to Ken Thompson in 2013.
The city Department of Investigation found that Judge Barry Kamins improperly gave Hynes campaign advice and communicated with him on cases.
The DOI also found Hynes paid political consultant Mortimer Matz with forfeiture funds.
Hynes’ lawyer, Robert Hill Schwartz, is recovering from open-heart surgery and was unable to comment." See post story here...http://nypost.com/2016/05/28/indictments-looming-in-probe-of-ex-brooklyn-da-charles-hynes/ 

I always said, there must be open transparency where forfeiture money ends up. People need to learn from Moses about accountability as noted in Exodus section on Pekudei. 
It is interesting how you read the get out of jail medical card. Unfortunately, that does not work in Federal Prison. They have medical prisons too.
If indicted and convicted, what can they expect in Federal Prison? I am no stranger as I sat 1316 days in Federal prison. To read more about it...go here..https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011GTWLOG

Gorilla shot at Cincinnati Zoo and boy saved

Gorilla and boy, courtesy youtube

I still am in shock how a boy ends up in a gorilla enclosure. This can be a lawyer's feeding frenzy. I mean, how can there be an opening where a kid can get inside a gorilla cage? This story makes no sense to me. Miracle of miracles and thank G-d the boy was saved. Remember the story in Connecticut where a monkey, 1/3 the size of this gorilla, ripped a face off a human being.

This story reminds me of king kong where kong fell in love with a woman. Even though the gorilla appears to be protecting the child, the Cincinnati zoo officials did the right thing by killing the gorilla. No one will lose a night sleep over that but if the child was killed, there would be tremendous suffering on the part of the parents.

To animal lovers, the zoo did a horrible thing but in my humble opinion and I believe most will concur, a human life has more value than an animal and that is why they killed the animal to save the human. In any event, why could they not tranquilize the gorilla?

The Cincinnati Zoo has a lot to answer the public over the safety of their place. I am waiting to read what they have to say....

Fraudulent Advertising at a Mobil Station

Driving along route 59 I needed gas so I  saw a sign that read unleaded gas 2.19 at the Mobil station. I thought it was reputable. When I went to the pump, it was 2.69. That is fraudulent advertising.

Remember, when you make money dishonestly, you will lose it and be proved a fool

I don't appreciate false advertising and I hope you fix your sign.

According to the feds..."The owners and operators of a purported hedge fund will appear in court today on charges that they defrauded more than two dozen investors by making extraordinary guarantees about investment returns and then used the money for extravagant purchases and to pay off other victims, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced. 
Alcibiades Cifuentes, 33, and his wife, Jennifer Wee Cifuentes, 35, both of West New York, New Jersey, were arrested by U.S. Postal Inspectors and criminal investigators with the U.S. Attorney’s office and charged by complaint with commodities fraud and mail fraud. They are scheduled to appear this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Leda Dunn Wettre in Newark federal court.   
According to the criminal complaint:
Alicbiades and Jennifer Wee Cifuentes allegedly engaged in an investment fraud scheme from 2012 through March 2015. They fraudulently induced victims to invest in the foreign currency and commodity markets through Cifuentes Fund Management (CFM), their hedge fund that purportedly invested in foreign currencies, and then almost immediately spent those investment funds on personal items, such as an Audi R8 and jewelry. The couple would then pay back a portion of the victims’ money with money received from newly duped victims. They allegedly defrauded approximately 25 victims of approximately $590,000. 
The count of mail fraud with which the defendants are each charged carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000, or twice the gross gain or loss caused by the scheme. The count of commodities fraud carries a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $1 million, or twice the gross gain or loss."

The Audi R8 has an MSRP of $162,900.00.  All this high flying lifestyle on the expense of others  will forever come to an end for this couple. What were they thinking that they would never get caught? The law of the universe says that when you make money dishonestly, you will lose it and be proved a fool.

New Jersey Man Pleads guilty in drug ring

According to the feds..."An Essex County, New Jersey, man today admitted his role in a conspiracy to illegally obtain and distribute oxycodone in New Jersey, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.
Rickie Horvath, 54, of Belleville, New Jersey, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Esther Salas in Newark federal court to an indictment charging him with one count of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
Using confidential sources, physical surveillance, and recorded text messages and telephone calls, investigators with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) discovered that members and suppliers of a drug-trafficking organization secured prescriptions for oxycodone and other controlled substances from various doctors in New Jersey, filled them at pharmacies in Belleville and elsewhere, and sold the drugs for a profit. The investigation identified Horvath as a member of the drug trafficking organization.
Horvath admitted that from Feb. 5, 2014, to Aug. 13, 2014, he personally went to various doctors’ offices and obtained prescriptions for pills containing oxycodone, had the prescriptions filled, and sold the pills to members of the conspiracy and others. He said that on a single day in June 2014, he traveled to a doctor’s office in Livingston, New Jersey, where he and two conspirators each obtained a prescription for 60 Endocet pills. Horvath and his conspirators dropped off the three prescriptions to be filled by a pharmacy in East Orange, New Jersey. Horvath admitted that he and his two conspirators then found a fourth conspirator to buy the 180 Endocet pills. Horvath and his conspirators traveled to the East Orange pharmacy with the third conspirator buyer, where Horvath used the fourth conspirator’s money to purchase the filled prescriptions. Horvath and his conspirators then sold the 180 Endocet pills to the fourth conspirator.                                                     
Oxycodone is a Schedule II controlled substance – meaning that it has a high potential for
abuse, a currently accepted medical use with severe restrictions, and abuse of the drug may lead
to severe psychological or physical dependence. The Endocet pills obtained and sold by Horvath each contained 10 milligrams of oxycodone.
The charge to which Horvath pleaded guilty carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 12, 2016.
Of the individuals originally charged with Horvath – Victoria Horvath, 43, of Belleville, New Jersey; Monica Horvath, 22, Tony Marco, 47, and Steven Horvath, 45, all of Rutherford, New Jersey; and Justin Farraj, 24, of Newark, New Jersey – all have pleaded guilty and await sentencing. Brian Perez, 23, was sentenced in September 2014 to 40 months in prison. Luis Rivera, 25, was sentenced in August 2015 to 54 months in prison. In April 2016, Daniel Horvath, 27, was sentenced to 27 months in prison and Johnny Horvath, 46, was sentenced to 30 months in prison. Charges were dismissed against Belleville pharmacist Vincent Cozzarelli after his death in April 2014."

Don't Steal

proof my purchase showing both receipts. 

I wanted to buy some banans for Shabbos so I walked to the fruit store on Kings Highway, Ralph's Produce, At the store I also bought some yellow cherries since they looked so yummy.

When I went to pay, I saw the bill was $11.38 on the cash register (cherries are expensive) but when I got the receipt since I paid by credit card, it showed  $1.38 . I told the lady, look, how come you undercharged me? She said that she was in a rush (She looks Korean). In any event, she charged me the additional 10.00 dollars as I told her I don't want to steal one penny from the store.

The moral of the story is not to steal and that goes both ways. Always check your receipt to make sure it matches sales price.

What else is new??? Strip club owners guilty on defrauding IRS

According to the feds..."A federal jury sitting in Portland, Oregon, after a six-day trial, found three family members who ran two strip clubs in the Portland area – Cabaret Lounge I at 503 W Burnside Street and Cabaret Lounge II at 17544 SE Stark Street – guilty of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and charges relating to filing false tax returns.
From 2007 through mid-2011, the defendants’ strip clubs collected more than $1.5 million in cash door charges and dancer stage fees. The defendants maintained a set of books at the Cabaret clubs that did not include the $1.5 million in stage fees and door fees and kept a second set of books, which tracked all of the cash receipts, including the stage and door fees, at the home of David and Marci Kiraz. 
IRS Special Agents executed search warrants at the strip clubs and at the residence of David and Marci Kiraz, and seized 85 banker boxes of records and all the files on 11 computers. IRS Special Agents then spent over 600 hours reviewing these records, located the second set of books, and proved David Kiraz filed false tax returns.
David Kiraz reported the business activity of the strip clubs each year on his individual income tax returns. The defendants gave their tax return preparers the false books maintained at the strip clubs, intentionally causing the return preparers to create tax returns for David Kiraz that did not report between $330,000 and $460,000 in door fees and stage fees each year.  In this way, the defendants evaded $500,000 in income taxes for tax years 2007 through 2010.
The jury convicted David G. Kiraz, 34, of Happy Valley, his father George D. Kiraz, 56, of Portland, and David’s brother Daniel Kiraz, 31, of Portland, of conspiring to defraud the IRS by filing false federal income tax returns for David Kiraz. The jury also found David Kiraz guilty of three counts of filing false tax returns, George Kiraz guilty of three counts of aiding and assisting in the preparation and filing of false tax returns, and Daniel Kiraz guilty of one count of aiding and assisting in the preparation and filing of a false tax return. The jury acquitted Marci Kiraz, wife of David Kiraz.
Sentencing is scheduled August 30, 2016, before Senior U.S. District Court Judge Robert E. Jones for the District of Oregon in Portland.  Each defendant faces a statutory maximum sentence of five years in prison on the charge of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and three years in prison on the charges of filing false tax returns and aiding and assisting in the preparation and filing of false tax returns.  They also face a maximum term of three years of supervised release and a maximum fine of $250,000 on each count.
"Every business is required to pay its fair share of taxes," said U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams.  “This office, in partnership with the IRS, will vigorously investigate and prosecute business owners who take advantage of the cash-intensive nature of their businesses to conceal income from the IRS and cheat on their taxes.”
Since they went to trial, the judge may hammer them. Most of these operations are cash businesses. IRS probably has a field day with these type of businesses.
What can they expect in Federal Prison? One thing for sure, they cannot handle dollar bills.

counterfeit perfume ring busted

According to the feds..."Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Angel Melendez, Special Agent in Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigation in New York (“HSI”), Robert E. Perez, Director of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection New York Field Office (“CBP”), and William J. Bratton, the Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), announced that PATRICK BADAL, KAIUM SHAH, KENNY NI, ABUL KASHEM, and PARVEZ SHAZZED were arrested today for participating in a scheme to distribute counterfeit name brand perfumes in New York and around the United States.  The defendants were presented this afternoon in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein. 
According to the allegations in the Complaint unsealed today in Manhattan federal court[1]:
From December 2014 to May 2016, the defendants and others (collectively, the “Counterfeit Perfume Ring”) imported generic liquid fragrances from China, separately imported boxes and packaging bearing counterfeit trademarks from China, packaged the generic liquid fragrances into the branded and trademarked packaging, and then sold counterfeit perfumes to wholesalers in New York and at least six other states, including out of a store located in or around Lafayette Street in New York City.
Based on physical surveillance conducted by NYPD and HSI, the Counterfeit Perfume Ring used seven primary locations to receive, prepare, and distribute its products:
The Port. Inbound shipping containers arrived at the Port of Newark and were transported to a bonded warehouse in Elizabeth, New Jersey, (the “Port”) regulated by CBP.
The Temporary Warehouse. Once shipping containers had been released by CBP, members of the Counterfeit Perfume Ring arranged for the containers to be moved from the Port to a temporary warehouse located in Elizabeth, New Jersey (the “Temporary Warehouse”).  The Temporary Warehouse was operated by a trucking company (the “Trucking Company”).
Packaging Facilities. From the Temporary Warehouse, the Trucking Company typically delivered the containers to premises in Queens, New York, for packaging (the “Packaging Facilities”). 
The Storage Facility. The Counterfeit Perfume Ring then transferred the goods from the Packaging Facilities to a self-storage facility located in Queens, New York (the “Storage Facility”).
The Freight Forwarder. The Counterfeit Perfume Ring distributed certain of its goods to wholesalers located outside the New York City area.  To accomplish this, the Counterfeit Perfume Ring used a freight forwarding service (the “Freight Forwarder”) to pick up pallets of goods from the Storage Facility.  The Freight Forwarder, in turn, delivered parcels to out-of-state addresses.  In addition to distributing its products out-of-state, the Counterfeit Perfume Ring distributed its products throughout New York City.  SHAZZED operated one of these locations, a store located in or around Lafayette Street in New York City.
*          *          *
BADAL, SHAH, NI, KASHEM, and SHAZZED are each charged with one count of conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods and one count of trafficking in counterfeit goods, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.  BADAL, SHAH, NI, and KASHEM are also each charged with one count of trafficking in counterfeit packaging, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.  BADAL and SHAH are also charged with smuggling goods into the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.  The maximum potential sentences in this case are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendants will be determined by the judge.
Mr. Bharara praised the outstanding work of HSI, CBP, and NYPD for their investigative efforts and ongoing support and assistance with the case."
It is interesting to note that the defendants are South Asian, be it Pakistani, Indian or Bangladeshi. How these guys got targeted or how the feds  found out about it, the article does not say. 
I am sure this is the tip of the iceberg in counterfeit merchandise. Every store in America sells something from China. How much is that counterfeit? Does it make a difference? People want bargains so the supply fills the demand.

my thoughts on the passing of Sam Salamon

the late Sam Salamon
funeral of Sam Salamon, courtesy Yakov Grunstein

It is hard to believe he is gone. He was someone with so much life, so much energy and now he is buried? How is this possible? How can this be? It shows the flimsiness of life. One day we are here, the next day we are gone.

His ex wife and son came over to me during Passover where I was staying and told me that he was in a coma, suffering from leukemia and that he got an infection.

When I emailed my brother the news of his passing, my brother emailed back..noooooooooooooooooo.

He was in a state of shock. My brother told me how cancer is rampant today. Moreover, billions of humans have walked the planet and billions have passed away and billions will soon walk the planet till the end of time.

How to spend 52 million in 6 months and then...

Mark Avery
get a prison sentence for 160 months. What a turnaround... What is this is all about? Can this be true?

Read what the feds have to say..."U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that a former Anchorage resident and former municipal prosecutor was sentenced to 160 months in prison for perpetrating a massive wire fraud and money laundering scheme encompassing $52 million.  This is the largest wire fraud and money laundering conviction by amount ever prosecuted in Alaska.  
Mark Avery, 57, who last resided in San Francisco, California, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Beistline.  In addition to the prison term, Avery was also ordered to serve five years of supervised release, pay a $100,000 fine, and pay restitution to the May Smith Trust in the amount of $45,925,737.57.  Avery was convicted on Feb. 29, 2016, following a two-week jury trial, of three counts of wire fraud, six counts of money laundering, one count of bank fraud, and one count of making false statements to a bank. 
Avery was indicted by a federal grand jury in Anchorage in 2013.  The indictment alleged that he defrauded the May Wong Smith and the May Smith Trust, of over $52 million dollars.  Avery was, at the time, a trustee of the trust and used his influence to obtain access to $52 million of trust assets, all of which he expended in a period of six months.  The jury’s verdict found that, in 2005 and 2006, Avery siphoned over $31 million of trust assets in a wire fraud scheme that defrauded the May Smith Trust. 
Avery was re-charged after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Avery’s conviction on similar charges for honest services wire fraud in 2013 based on a Supreme Court decision that found the theory of honest services fraud under which Avery was previously convicted unconstitutional.  The revised indictment filed against Avery charged that Avery engaged in a scheme to defraud the trust and May Wong Smith.  Avery served as a trustee and lawyer to the May Smith Trust from early 2002, and received yearly compensation in the amount of $600,000 in trustee fees for his fiduciary role.  Avery was also owner/operator of Avery and Associates, L.L.C., Security Aviation, Inc., and Regional Protective Services, L.L.C.  Avery’s companies, many of which were created after receipt of trust funds, were engaged in air charter services, aeromedical evacuation, legal services, development of real property, and court imposed electronic monitoring. 
During the trial, the jury heard that May Wong Smith was born in China in 1922 and, shortly after World War II, married Stanley Smith, a citizen of Australia.  Stanley Smith amassed millions of dollars from post-war business investments and became a quiet benefactor of various charitable organizations.  Stanley Smith died in 1968 and May Wong Smith never remarried.    
In the early 1980s, May Wong Smith began to show signs of dementia and her mental condition began to deteriorate to the point where she was not capable of living without assisted care.  The May Smith Trust was established on October 10, 1982, to provide for May Wong Smith’s support and maintenance during her life and certain charitable purposes after her death.  Due to her mental condition, she had full time live-in care, who were hand-picked by Avery, from at least 1991 until her death in Nassau, Bahamas, on July 15, 2006.  In spite of her compromised mental capacity, she remained a trustee until her death in July 2006.
The indictment alleged that Avery engaged in a scheme wherein he pledged assets of the May Smith Trust as collateral to secure a $52 million loan for himself.  The jury’s verdicts found that Avery defrauded May Wong Smith and the May Smith Trust by using the $52 million loan funds for his personal use and to invest in various businesses without any indicia of normal business practices.  The money was obtained and spent with no written business plan, no controls over how the money was to be spent, no repayment terms, no promissory note and none of the common safeguards of commercial investments.   At trial the evidence showed that Avery exhausted the $52 million he obtained from the trust in six months using the funds for various purchases including two World War II era fighters, a P-51D Mustang, and an F4U-4 Corsair, other antique aircraft, real estate, a personal mortgage payoff, a 47' Carver Yacht, and a 37' heavy-duty patrol boat.  
Avery was also convicted of bank fraud and making false statements to Wells Fargo Bank in October 2006 in connection with a $500,000 line of credit.  Avery failed to list the $52 million dollar debt when applying for the loan, which, if listed, would have been material in Wells Fargo’s decision in evaluating the loan.
“Today’s sentencing brings to a close a lengthy investigation of one of the largest fraud cases perpetrated in Alaska,” said U.S. Attorney Loeffler.  “Mr. Avery’s conduct involved a massive breach of fiduciary obligations and just convictions for someone who used his access to these huge funds to defy the wishes and bequests of the Smiths and spend their trust funds on personal debts, whims, wishes and pie in the sky ventures unsupported by any business planning.  I commend the dedication of the IRS, FBI and prosecutors in this office who picked up this investigation and brought it forward to today’s result.”
this means that he is most likely being held in a private or county jail but will soon be in b.o.p. custody 
The psychology of crime is brought down to us in the Talmud at Yoma 86b, where it says that if you a commit a sin a few times, it becomes permitted to you. So this explains it. He probably stole a little bit but eventually the thefts kept growing till he stole it all. I still cannot understand his greed that apparently was endless. He was making a compensation of $600,000.00 a year and that was not enough for him. That is more than most people make in a life time and he still was not satisfied? What was he thinking that he would never get caught. Remember, as noted in Talmud Sota, a sin in secret, G-d makes it public. But he will pay a hefty price as he must do 87.5 percent of the 160 months sentence.   He does not have to wear a suit in jail. His lifestyle will be spartan.  Perhaps he may lose a few pounds as well. He will regret his stupidity that landed him in jail. 
What can he expect in Federal Prison. I am no stranger since I sat 1316 days on immigration fraud so here is my take on the matter...https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011GTWLOG

Russian Virginian man gets 20 months prison sentence

According to the feds...
 "A Williamsburg man, who was convicted in October 2015 of conspiring to defraud the United States of more than $3 million of employment taxes, was sentenced last week in the United States District court for the Western District of Virginia in Roanoke, United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. announced.
Vladimir Maglnik, 52, of Williamsburg, Virginia, was found guilty in October 2015 of one count of conspiring to defraud the United States and conspiracy to harbor illegal aliens for commercial advantage or private financial gain. Last Week in District Court, Maglnik was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison and ordered to pay a fine of $7,500.
“This defendant used the hard work of migrant workers to line his own pockets with millions of dollars in ill-gotten riches,” United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. said today. “Many of his victims were forced to live in squalor and pay rent, afraid to contact law enforcement, while Maglnik defraud the United States government. We are glad his strong of deceit has been exposed and justice has been served.”
According to evidence presented at previous hearings by Assistant United States Attorney C. Patrick Hogeboom, from at least 2002 continuing through 2007, Maglnik and Makera Galustyants owned North American Management (NAM), a company that contracted labor service contracts with hotels, primarily in Florida, Virginia and Louisiana. NAM agreed to provide temporary employees to perform housekeeping services, would be responsible for hiring and paying all temporary workers as well as complying with all federal regulations, including the deduction and payment of employment taxes from the temporary workers’ wages. The hotels were also assured that the temporary workers held legitimate work permits and were eligible to work in the United States.
However, according to evidence presented in court, NAM routinely violated the terms of the contract and failed to pay employment taxes to the United States Treasury on any of the temporary works employed by NAM. All told, the conspirators pocketed $3,082,097 in unpaid employment taxes. "

I noticed the government targets employment agencies and always finds something to get them. I remember back in the late 90's a company named "clean serve"  that brought in many immigrants to work on temporary jobs and the government shut them down.

Triplet's Killer Father may be blocked from book deal

According to Stltoday.com, " A Cape Girardeau County man serving 20 years in prison for the murder of his wife helped investigators working toward a new federal charge when he wrote a tell-all book about the murder, prosecutors said Monday.
FBI agents on March 8 obtained a copy of a manuscript by James Clay Waller, titled, “‘If You Take My Kids, I’ll Kill You!’: The Public Confession of Missouri’s Most Notorious Wife Killers,” Waller’s May 19 indictment says. It was not clear why the title makes reference to the plural “killers.”
If convicted, he could face a life term on the new federal interstate domestic violence charge. The indictment also seeks to block any profits from a manuscript he wrote about the crime, the U.S. attorney’s office said Monday.
Waller, now 45, pleaded guilty in June 2013 of second-degree murder in exchange for a 20-year prison sentence. As part of the plea, he led investigators to his wife’s body, which he’d buried in Alexander County, in Southern Illinois. He said that he beat her and strangled her.
Waller and Jacque Sue Waller, 39, were in the midst of a divorce when she disappeared the night of June 1, 2011. They had met with their divorce attorney that day.
At the time, she was planning to start a new life for herself and the couple’s triplets with a new boyfriend in Farmington.
In a statement announcing the charge, prosecutors acknowledged that seeking a federal charge against a man already serving a state murder sentence for essentially the same crime was “highly unusual.” But U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan said in a statement that “the facts and circumstances of this case begged for such a prosecution.”
In a phone interview, Callahan said, “The circumstances that I refer to are the particular brutality of the murder along with the fact that he was able to extract an agreement with the prosecutors’ office taking advantage of her family, who did want the body recovered and wanted some closure.”
Current Time0:00
Duration Time0:00
Loaded: 0%
Progress: 0%
Callahan said that Waller was told at the time of his plea that he could still face federal charges.
Federal investigators had been looking at the case after Waller’s plea. “There were some legal issues as to whether we would be able to use his guilty plea as evidence,” Callahan said. “So the manuscript certainly provided for an independent source of evidence.”
Callahan declined to comment on whether Waller already had a book deal or how investigators uncovered the manuscript, but he did say “there was some very good police work that enabled authorities to locate it.”
As federal, state and local investigators worked on the case, James Waller was first charged with threatening his sister. A prosecutor said Waller had confessed to his father, but his father then died.
In January 2012, he was sentenced to five years in federal prison on the threatening charge.
In April 2012, Waller was charged with first-degree murder and tampering with evidence, even though his wife’s body had not been found.
The triplets were later adopted by Jacque Waller’s sister and brother-in-law. They could not be reached for comment Monday.
Waller was named May 19 on the new federal indictment, which was handed down in federal court in Cape Girardeau and unsealed Monday. The indictment says that Waller traveled between Illinois and Missouri with the intent to kill his wife and then did kill her.
It also seeks the forfeiture of any proceeds from “a contract relating to a depiction of such crime in a movie, book, newspaper, magazine, radio or television production, or live entertainment.”"
I think the feds are wrong. They should let him publish the book, get a book deal but all of the profits should go to his three children and the family that are taking care of his kids. That is my two cents advice.

According to the feds.."On Friday, May 20, 2016, a complaint was unsealed in Brooklyn federal court charging Djevair Ametovski, a Macedonian citizen also known as “codeshop,” “sindrom,” and “sindromx,” with crimes related to his operation of the website Codeshop.su, a website allegedly created for the sole purpose of selling illegally obtained credit and debit card data and personal identification information for financial gain.  The charges include aggravated identity theft, access device fraud conspiracy, and wire fraud conspiracy.  The defendant is scheduled to be arraigned at 11 a.m. tomorrow, May 21, 2016, before United States Magistrate Judge Roanne L. Mann at the U.S. Courthouse, 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, New York.
The charges were announced by Robert L. Capers, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and David E. Beach, Special Agent in Charge, United States Secret Service, New York Field Office.
“Cybercriminals who create and operate online criminal marketplaces in which innocent victims’ financial and personal information are bought and sold erode consumer trust in modern-day payment systems and cause millions of dollars in losses to financial institutions and unsuspecting individuals.  Today marks a major step in bringing the alleged operator of one such criminal marketplace to justice, and should serve as a warning to others who seek to profit from perpetuating these fraudulent schemes,” stated United States Attorney Capers.  Mr. Capers cited the extraordinary efforts of the Secret Service, the agency responsible for leading the government’s investigation, and also thanked the Slovenian Ministry of the Interior and Ministry of Justice, for their assistance in the investigation and effecting the defendant’s extradition, the United States Marshals Service, for their assistance in transporting the defendant to the United States, and the U.S. Department of State Regional Security Officers in Slovenia and the Netherlands, for their assistance in facilitating the defendant’s extradition.   
“Today’s extradition of alleged cybercriminal Djevair Ametovski from Central Europe is the culmination of a seven-year investigation and demonstrates the relentless pursuit by the Secret Service and its international partners to bring cybercriminals to justice.  Multinational cyber investigations require establishing critical partnerships with our international law enforcement partners.  The immeasurable assistance provided to our New York Electronic Crimes Task Force by the Slovenian Authorities in this case illustrates that our investigative reach will continue to expand beyond the borders of the United States,” said Special Agent in Charge Beach of the United States Secret Service New York Field Office.
As detailed in the complaint, Ametovski obtained valuable data from hackers, who stole it from financial institutions and other businesses or from individuals using “phishing” tactics.[1]  Ametovski then sold the data on his website, a fully indexed and searchable website that allowed users to search through databases of stolen data by bank identification number, financial institution, country, state, and card brand to find the precise data that they wished to buy.  Individuals who bought data from the website generally used it to make online purchases and to encode plastic cards with the data and use the cards to withdraw cash at ATMs.  Ametovski used a network of online money exchangers and digital currencies to pay the hackers who fed him data and to receive payments from the website users who bought data in order to conceal all participants’ identities, including his own.  Over the course of the scheme, Ametovski obtained and sold credit and debit card data for more than 181,000 different cards.  In many instances, the data included personal details associated with the account holder, including email address, billing address, phone number, and account holder name.  The charged scheme resulted in millions of dollars in financial losses to thousands of victims around the world. 
Ametovski was arrested in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on January 22, 2014, and was extradited to the United States today."
