South Carolina Man Indicted for Falsifying FMCSA Records
On March 27, 2018, Cameron Banks was indicted in U.S. District Court, Charleston, South Carolina, on three counts of falsification of records in Federal investigations with intent to impede, obstruct, and influence FMCSA’s process of investigation and proper administration. The indictment alleged that on three separate occasions between 2015 and 2018, Banks accessed FMCSA’s database and completed a Motor Carrier Authority application to avoid out-of-service orders FMCSA had placed on DOT numbers he operated. On each occasion, Banks failed to disclose any relationship with other entities licensed by FMCSA within the previous 3 years. The indictment also charged him with healthcare fraud and money laundering.
DOT-OIG is conducting this investigation with the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigative Division and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
