Ex-FBI Agent Scammed Woman Out of $800,000 Through ‘Secret Probation’

According to reports, a former FBI agent named William Stone Jr. is now facing charges after prosecutors claim the man scammed a Texas woman out of $800,000 over several years. Stone allegedly convinced the woman she was on “secret probation” for “drug crimes” based on Judge Anderson’s court in Austin, Texas. However, prosecutors pointed out the woman was not on probation and that Judge Anderson isn’t real.

William Stone Jr. was indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday and was hit with one count of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of false impersonation of a federal officer, one count of engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from unlawful activity, and several counts of wire fraud.

Stone Jr. allegedly convinced the woman that her family was attempting to take money she inherited from her grandmother and “that she should distance herself from them,” according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say the retired agent left the FBI’s Dallas Field Office in October 2015 and started the scam only a month after leaving. Court records say Stone used the money he scammed to buy a Mercedes CLS, as well as a home in Colleyville, Texas. Stone is facing up to 178 years in prison if convicted of the crimes.
