Canadian Named in Billion-Dollar Fraud

Jim Can

Bahamian nationals Rohn Knowles and Kelvin Leach met bail of a hundred thousand dollars on October first, for an extradition warrant. The duo and three others are wanted by the U.S. for their alleged involvement in a tax fraud and money launderings scheme. The scheme involved sham companies and stock manipulations worth more than one billion Belize dollars or five hundred million US dollars. The company, Titans Securities LLC was busted here in Belize back on September ninth, but only Knowles and Leach were arrested at the Phillip Goldson International Airport days after police moved into their offices on Coney Drive.  CBC news of Canada is, however, reporting today that another person named in the scheme, Jim Can, a Canadian stock broker, has a checkered past and is named in the extortion and kidnapping of a Calgary businessman. Can also is under investigations by the Alberta Securities Commission. Can moved to Belize sometime ago, but it is suspected that he is now in Turkey. Here is the report by CBC Canada.
