In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agent Richard Velasquez reviews his Disney theme park fraud case against Thomas Lucas Jr., who concocted a story that the Disney Company would build a theme park called Frontier Disney DFW in North Texas. Lucas Jr. used this false information to solicit doctors, lawyers, professional athletes and others into investing in the land surrounding the alleged Disney site, assuring them that when Disney announced plans for the theme park, the new landowners would become instant millionaires. Investors lost over $60 million in the scheme. Rick is the author of Texcot: Dreams, Lies and Fraud, his account of the FBI investigation that finally brought Lucas Jr. to justice.
