ICE Boston seizes nearly $20 million, arrests Brazilian national in money laundering scheme linked to TelexFree




BOSTON — Federal special agents in Massachusetts seized $19.4 million in cash and arrested a Brazilian national late Wednesday in connection with a money laundering conspiracy, which was part of the massive TelexFree pyramid scheme.

This seizure and arrest resulted from a complex investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), with the assistance of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), Massachusetts State Police, Bristol County Sheriff’s Department, and the police departments of the Massachusetts cities of Boston, Hudson and Westborough.
Cleber Rene Rizerio Rocha, 28, a Brazilian national living in Westborough, Massachusetts, was charged via criminal complaint with one count of conspiring to commit money laundering. Rocha was ordered detained following an appearance Thursday before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Judith G. Dein.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
