Epoch Times CFO indicted in scheme to launder $67 million in unemployment benefits
The CFO of The Epoch Times was indicted in a multiyear scheme to launder $67 million in unemployment benefits and other funds obtained through fraud.
Weidong "Bill" Guan, of Secaucus, appeared before a federal judge in New York on Monday. He pleaded not guilty.
Federal prosecutors say Guan is accused of participating in a "sprawling trans-national scheme.”
They say the company's "make money online" team - managed by Guan - used cryptocurrency to "knowingly purchase tens of millions of dollars in crime proceeds” loaded onto prepaid debit cards.
A spokesperson for The Epoch Times says the company will cooperate with any investigation dealing with those allegations.
The Epoch Times is a conservative, global news outlet.
