Retired agent Myron Fuller reviews his role as the case agent and undercover agent in the case code named ABSCAM, originally initiated to investigate and penetrate White Collar Crime and Organized Crime targets in the New York area. Specifically, it was begun as an undercover operation to infiltrate the conspiracy of members of organize crime to purchase a mortgage company for fraudulent and criminal purposes. The sophisticated ABSCAM scenario included a fictitious wealthy Lebanese businessman and a $7 Million bank account. Fuller and his undercover partner, agent John Hauss, represented that they worked for a consortium of foreign banks and a Lebanese businessman who wanted to funnel millions of Middle-East money into ventures in the United States. The scenario, with the cooperation of con man Mel Weinberg, allowed for the successful conviction of organized crime figures, conmen, and ultimately, corrupt politicians.
