Billboard Campaign Launched to Find Md. Man Accused In $50M Scheme

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—A nationwide manhunt is underway for a Lutherville man accused of operating a multi-million-dollar telemarketing scheme.

The FBI has now launched a billboard campaign desperate to put the alleged ring-leader behind bars.

Fifty-two-year-old Brian Keith Wallen, of Lutherville is the man federal investigators are on the hunt for.

“When you see a scam like this it’s shocking they were able to succeed for so long,” said U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein.

Wallen is one of two men named in an unsealed indictment.

The judge alleges Wallen was the CEO of several disguised companies that shipped unwanted items to businesses and jacked up the prices, specifically for light bulbs and cleaning supplies.

Unwanted goods or services; exorbitant prices; no accountability. Did Obama appoint him to a cabinet position?

This isn't new. You have some minimum wage office girl in charge of payables who blindly sends out checks. What's worse are the signers who think the poor fool vetted the bills and don't even look at the check when they sign it. I lived it.

Don't hire a minimum wage "girl". you sound like the kind of man that an ex wife took you for more than half. Hire a n educated woman, pay her the same as you would a male counter part and have oversight on the AP system. What fool gives a minimum wage anyone signing authority?

I'm always amazed owners of companies don't sign their own checks and know every dollar going out. 9 out of 10 close. Every dollar leaving my company makes two dollars coming in. " office girls" ? Please try to stay current it's 2016??

Unbelievable... There is more to this than told. I have had these phone calls and they usually offer me a "gift" shipped directly to my home for authorizing the purchase. And then, what is the status of the law in Maryland that classifies shipments of merchandise that were not authorized to be considered a GIFT and uncollectable?.
