$100M Swindle

Nemazee Accused of Defrauding Others

Heavyweight Democratic fundraiser Hassan Nemazee was arrested last week for defrauding Citigroup of $74 million—and now prosecutors say he cheated other banks out of more than $100 million more. Bloomberg reports that man who raised hundreds of thousands for Hillary Clinton and Obama, and is now out on a $25 million bail, is thought to have used his ill-gotten cash to acquire additional fraudulent loans, turning dirty money into more dirty money. Though prosecutors haven’t identified the two additional banks Nemazee is accused of defrauding, his attorney recently complained that Nemazee’s JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America accounts were frozen.
