Getting your money back from Clever China Cheaters… Forget the cops and the lawyers – these guys cheat the cheaters! By George B. Lewis, CPA Get a refund from sly scammers? Mission Impossible? Not any more. In fact, since 2009 a former air traffic controller and Florida private investigator has recovered over $12 million USD for 167 victims of various scams and frauds perpetrated by clever china cheaters. The schemes range from common street swindles to sophisticated white collar frauds involving forged financial statements and even corrupt bankers and government officials. Foreigners employed in China account for half of his business while overseas importers account for another 30%. The balance of victims are usually investors. Almost half are lured to their unfortunate fate through the internet.

But his most famous case was bringing down the infamous “Beijing Bandit” who was operating a fraudulent finance company known as American Independent Capital Group which stole over $3 Million dollars from Beijing residents and foreign investors as well. Kenny himself was a victim of a clever Chinese investment scam that cost him a $60,000 loss in 2008. It involved selling American and Canadian lottery tickets in China - too complicated to explain here. But after he found an ingenious way to recover all of his money in 2009, he decided other victims could benefit from his secret collection method. So at first he helped his friends, then friends of friends, and today he has become the Robin Hood of Beijing, with plans to open an office in Shanghai next month. Today word of mouth is getting him dozens of calls every day, but he now only accepts cases of $50,000 or more and his recovery crew recently doubled due to some free seminars he gave to the Beijing Business community.
