    GA - Aubrey Price for investment fraud, Savannah, 2012

    Just a plain old swindler, he hasn't eaten any people or live animals yet...I feel sorry for his wife and 4 children...


    VALDOSTA — A nationwide search continues for an investment advisor with Lowndes County connections who is suspected of embezzling approximately $40 million.

    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced Tuesday that it has obtained a court order freezing the assets of Aubrey Lee Price, 46, who has allegedly gone into hiding. He reportedly moved recently from Manatee County, Fla., to Lowndes County.

    “In order to conceal mounting losses of investor funds, Price created bogus account statements with false account balances and returns that were provided to investors and bank regulators,” the release continued.

    Price has been missing since June 16. He was last seen aboard a ferry sailing from Key West, Fla., to Fort Myers, according to various media reports. Price’s possible whereabouts have also been linked to Venezuela.

    Other media reports stated that the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for missing funds wired through a New York City bank and is not convinced that Price has committed suicide.

    In addition, the SEC reported that Price sent a 22-page letter titled “Confidential Confession For Regulators — PFG, LLC, and PFGBI, LLC Summary” to individuals. In the letter, Price admits that he “falsified statements with false returns” in order to conceal between $20 million and $23 million in investor losses.

    Feds: Georgia banker missing, so is $17 million


    Atlanta (CNN) -- A Georgia banker who went missing last month is being sought by federal authorities for allegedly embezzling millions of dollars from a south Georgia bank.

    Aubrey "Lee" Price, 46, is charged with wire fraud, and is suspected of defrauding more than 100 investors of at least $17 million dollars over the course of two years, a criminal complaint from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York, said.............

    But federal investigators, including the FBI, believe Price, who owns property in Venezuela and Guatemala, may be on the run. FBI Special Agent Michael Howard said in the complaint that investigators believe Price "may own a boat that would be large enough to travel to Venezuela from Florida."

    I think it is odd that he was caught around 2 hours from Valdosta and not in some other country.

    Here's another update from the AJC. I suppose we can take a guess as to how he was supplementing his income.


    Also, per this article, his family didn't know he was alive. Crazy to think he was living within a few hours drive of them!

    Ah geezzzz. I bet they're going to make the wife pay back the social security benefits. She's been getting $800 a month and added to her teacher salary, she's barely surviving.

    Wow, poor thing.

    What a shocker!
