How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Acting AG Whitaker Has Ties to Company under FBI Investigation

Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has ties to a Florida company that is under an FBI investigation for allegedly scamming customers out of $26 million, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Whitaker, whom Trump appointed to replace Jeff Sessions last week, was a paid advisory board member of World Patent Marketing.

The FBI’s Miami office and U.S. Postal Inspection Service shut down the company last year after the Federal Trade Commission accused it of “scamming customers out of $26 million.”

The company is accused of charging customers “thousands of dollars to patent and promote their inventions” while providing “almost no real service.”

People who complained were reportedly threatened.

Whitaker, who was paid $9,375 to serve on the advisory board, reportedly threatened unhappy customers with “serious civil and criminal consequences,” according to documents.
