Fraud Fugitive Caught Through Facebook

If you want to live a life of crime, you may not want to add former Justice Department officials to your friends list. This did not occur to Maxi Sopo who has been arrested for alleged bank fraud after posting his whereabouts on Facebook.

Sopo was posting how he was living the good live in Cancun, after eluding US authorities who sought him for over $200,000 in bank fraud.

“He was making posts about how beautiful life is and how he was having a good time with his buddies,” said Assistant US Attorney Michael Scoville.

“He was definitely not living the way we wanted him to be living, given the charges he was facing,” he told the BBC News.
