Fugitive Investigation – Korea-Based Multinational Company

March 9, 2023

The CFO of a major global company based in Korea was alleged to have embezzled the equivalent of $5 million of company funds and then fled to the United States where he was suspected of staying with relatives.   An investigation was conducted in Flushing Queens where there is a large Korean population.  Investigators visited several addresses identifiable with the subject’s family, performed neighborhood canvasses and circulate “wanted poster” style flyers in the neighborhood offering a reward for information leading to the subject’s voluntary return to Korea.  The investigation resulted in the subject surrendering to a local police precinct and eventually agreeing to return to Korea to face criminal charges.
