Jason P. Unangst
Jason P. Unangst, 34, formerly lived in the Pittsburgh suburbs of McCandless Township and Wexford. His last verifiable address was listed as Virginia Beach, Va., prosecutors said. He was indicted in June 2009 on charges of defrauding investors of “at least $1,987,060 by devising a scheme to persuade prospective investors to invest money into a purported mobile home venture, which was actually a pyramid scheme,” prosecutors said. Unangst is now listed as a fugitive in a pyramid-scheme and money-laundering case, federal prosecutors said. (Source: PatrickPretty.com)
The 15-count indictment charges 34-year-old Jason Unangst, formerly of Wexford, with fraud and money laundering. The U.S. Attorney's Office on Wednesday released a photo of Unangst because they've been unable to locate him since the indictment was unsealed last month.
Unangst is accused of defrauding several people out of $1.98 million by persuading them to invest in a mobile home venture. Prosecutors say it was actually a pyramid scheme.
The scam allegedly ran from 2003 to 2005.
