A Honolulu man was indicted by a federal grand jury on suspicion of wire fraud and money laundering that began in 2018.
Paul Henri Marie Harleman, 34, was arrested on April 23 for devising two fraudulent plans to receive money from a customer he had as a contract bookkeeper, said the U.S. federal prosecutor in Hawaii. The bureau said in today’s news release.
The first plan is said to have taken place between July 2018 and May 2020, and Harleman is said to have set up a limited liability company with almost the same name as the client’s vendor. He has since allegedly charged the client’s credit card with fraudulent invoices in excess of $ 146,000.
In the second scheme, from September 2019 until Harleman was arrested, he allegedly sent over $ 1 million in salary payments from two clients to the limited liability company he founded. ..
Harleman allegedly incurred money laundering costs as he transferred money from his three clients from his personal checking account to his personal investment account.
He was charged with six wire frauds and seven money laundering cases today and was detained until trial.
