An FBI informant investigating a terrorism sting in Palm Beach County is accused of a long-running scheme to commit fraud.
Mohammed Agbareia, whom the FBI classified as a “national security asset,” is expected to plead guilty Friday after his arrest in June on six federal charges alleging he committed fraud for 10 years beginning in 2007, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports .
Prosecutors said Agbareia posed as a “stranded traveler” and defrauded victims out of more than $300,000.
Agbareia became an undercover informant a year after he was released from prison for a prior fraud conviction.
