TOP-SECRET from the FBI – Two Men Arrested for Fraud and Aggravated Identity Theft

SAN FRANCISCO—A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted Ngoc Duong, a/k/a Danny Duong, of Fountain Valley, California, and Hong Lee Wong, a/k/a William Wong, of Torrance, California, on July 19, 2012, with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft, United States Attorney Melinda Haag announced.

According to the indictment, which was unsealed Friday, Duong, 60, a partner in Incom Trading Corporation Inc.; and Wong, 44, a principal in Powell Trading Inc. and Powell Commodity Inc., allegedly defrauded three companies: Cheery Way Inc. (Cheery Way), of Brisbane, California; as well as two Chinese companies, Zheijang Metals and Materials and Zheijang Concentrating (Zheijang), by falsely claiming to have an agreement with the city of New Orleans to recycle scrap metal from a Six Flags amusement park damaged by Hurricane Katrina. To carry out the fraud, Duong and Wong created and sent false documents to Cheery Way and Zheijang in which the defendants fraudulently used names and e-mail addresses of New Orleans city officials.

Duong was arrested on July 26, 2012, at the Houston International Airport. He made his initial appearance in federal court in Houston on July 27, 2012. Today, following a bail hearing held in federal court in Houston, Duong was released on a $100,000 bond. Wong was arrested on July 27, 2012, at his residence in Torrance. He made his initial appearance in federal court in Los Angeles on July 27, 2012, and was released on $25,000 bond and electronic monitoring. Both defendants are scheduled to appear before the Magistrate Judge in federal court in San Francisco, on August 6, 2012.

The maximum statutory penalty for each count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1349 and 1343, respectively, is 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 or twice the amount of the fraud. The statutory penalty for each count of aggravated identity theft in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1028A is a mandatory two-year term in prison, to be imposed consecutive to any sentence imposed for other charges, and a $250,000 fine. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553. The case has been assigned to United States District Court Judge Susan Illston.

Denise Marie Barton is the Assistant U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting the case with the assistance of Elizabeth Garcia. The prosecution is the result of an approximately eight-month investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Please note, an indictment contains only allegations against an individual and, as with all defendants, Duong and Wong must be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Julian Assange is an Australian publisher, journalist, computer programmer and Internet activist, with a net worth of $300 thousand. Julian Assange has earned his net worth as the editor in chief of WikiLeaks, which is a whistleblower website to create open governments, by exposing private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources, news leaks, and whistleblowers. Assange was born in Townsville, Queensland, Australia, on July 3, 1971. He is well-known for his public appearances in many parts of the world, to speak out about freedom of the press, censorship and investigative journalism.

How much is Julian Assange worth?

Julian Assange Net Worth

Assange has won many awards and nominations, including the 2009 Amnesty International Media Award and Readers’ Choice for TIME magazine’s 2010 Person of the Year. In his youth he was referred to as “Australia’s most famous, ethical, computer hacker” by the Personal Democracy Forum. As a youth, he was charged with 31 counts of hacking and related crimes. It took three years for the case to make it to court where Julian pled guilty to 25 charges of hacking. The other six charges were dropped. He was released on bond for good conduct, after being fined AUD $2,100. Assange has never been married, however, he does have one son with an ex-girlfriend. After a custody battle that lasted for years, the couple formed an activist group, referred to as, “Parent Inquiry Into Child Protection,” which created a “central databank” for otherwise inaccessible legal records, related to child custody issues in Australia.

The Director, Central Intelligence Agency’s Historical Review Panel (HRP) was formed in 1995, replacing a panel that was less formally organized and that had met only episodically. Since then, the HRP has met twice a year, with the mandate to:

Advise the Central Intelligence Agency on systematic and automatic declassification review under the provisions of Executive Order 12958 as amended.Assist in developing subjects of historical and scholarly interest for the Intelligence Community declassification review program.

Advise CIA and the Intelligence Community on declassification issues in which the protection of intelligence sources and methods potentially conflicts with mandated declassification priorities.

Provide guidance for the historical research and writing programs of the CIA History Staff, and when appropriate, review draft products.

Advise Information Management Services on its mandatory and voluntary declassification review initiatives and the Center for the Study of Intelligence on its academic outreach programs.

At the request of the Director of Central Intelligence Agency, advise on other matters of relevance to the intelligence and academic communities.

Advise Information Management Services on archival and records management issues.

The HRP, like the other DCIA panels, is convened by the Director to provide him with confidential advice and assessments. Because the HRP’s advice to the DCIA must be completely frank and candid, we are not reporting Panel recommendations. But because this panel’s primary concern is the program of declassification and the release of information to the public, the DCIA and the Panel concluded that it should inform the interested public of the subjects and problems that the Panel is discussing.

The HRP met on June 4-5, 2012, with Robert Jervis, Melvyn Leffler, Thomas Newcomb, and Jeffrey Taliaferro being in attendance.

As has often been the case, we spent much of our time discussing the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, including specific volumes at various stages of compilation and declassification and the general processes involved. We had a long session with the State Department’s Historical Advisory Committee and the Historical Office staff. A great deal of progress has been made in reducing delays and coming to grips with difficult issues. We agreed on the value of continuing communication between the two advisory panels and of course in developing even further the working-level relations between CIA and the State Department, which will have to be expanded to include representatives of the National Security Council staff.

We also discussed the projects of the Historical Collections Division (HCD) and how these can be developed to meet the needs of multiple audiences and to produce material of most interest to scholars, journalists, and members of the interested public.

We continued our discussion of the 25-Year Program, the wider dissemination of material on the CREST system (the CIA Records Search Tool), and the need to get all agencies to devote attention to material from Presidential libraries.

We also discussed options for reviewing Presidential Daily Briefs (PDBs).

We will meet again in December 2012 or January 2013.
