All pictures are posted on this link. I will list each of their names below with a detail of the crimes.

OIG Wanted Fugitives
Defendants charged with transportation related crimes sometimes flee the court's jurisdiction and/or the United States rather than face prosecution or serve a sentence. When these circumstances occur, they become fugitives from justice. The following are fugitives sought by the OIG’s Office of Investigations.

Do not attempt to apprehend any of these individuals.

Contact the OIG at 1-800-424-9071 or your local police.

Eli Kaupp

Image


Wanted For: Fraud Involving Moving Company
Charges: Conspiracy and extortion
DOB: 02.23.1981
Age: 31
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 176 lbs.
NCIC No.: W563705360
ARMED AND DANGEROUS
In December of 2007, Eli Kaupp, along with 13 others, was indicted on charges of conspiracy and extortion. Investigators believe that Kaupp and his co‐conspirators lured over 1,000 customers with artificially low moving estimates, and then extorted them by holding their household goods hostage until they paid fraudulently inflated prices.

Kaupp was a driver for AY Transport, Inc., a/k/a Progressive Van Lines a/k/a Midwest Relocation Services, a California-based moving company. According to court documents, between April 2001 to October 2005, Kaupp's co-conspirators solicited business for AY Transport by offering artificially low estimates for moving prices. Kaupp and other drivers typically rushed customers through the AY paperwork, causing them to sign blank or incomplete bills of lading and other documents. Once the customers' goods had been loaded, Kaupp would inflate the total price of the move by fraudulently claiming that the customers' goods weighed more than had been originally estimated and/or by overcharging the customers for packing materials. This new, inflated price was often multiple times the initial estimate provided to the customer by AY.

Kaupp and his co-conspirators would demand full payment of the inflated price before AY Transport would deliver their goods. He ignored customers' repeated complaints about the inflated price and when customers refused to pay the inflated price, Kaupp and his co-conspirators arranged to warehouse customers' goods and refused to divulge the location of the goods to customers.

Kaupp was born in Israel and was last known to be residing in Lakeland, Florida.

KAUPP IS CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS. DO NOT CONFRONT OR ATTEMPT TO APPREHEND. CONTACT USDOT-OIG OR LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

In July 2010, Itzhak Omega was indicted by a grand jury in Prince George’s County, Maryland on two counts of theft of over $500. Investigators believe that Omega took possession of the household goods of a Maryland resident for an interstate move, was paid for the move, and then refused to deliver the customer’s goods for almost two years.

Omega was the owner of Omega Van Lines, a Maryland-based moving company. As owner of Omega Van Lines, Omega ran the day-to-day operations of the company. According to court documents, between April 2008 and February 2010, Omega stole the furniture and household items of a Maryland State resident. Omega took possession of the customer’s household goods for an interstate move and was paid several thousand dollars. For almost two years, Omega held the customer’s good and refused to deliver or divulge the location of the goods.

After the indictment was returned, a Maryland State warrant was issued for Omega’s arrest. Omega was born in Israel and was last known to be residing in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

NCIC No.: W223898051
In February of 2003, Tamir Cohen a/k/a “Tony” and “Tommy Chance”, along with 19 other co-conspirators, was indicted on charges of conspiracy, extortion mail fraud and wire fraud. Investigators believe that Cohen and his co‐conspirators lured numerous customers with artificially low moving estimates, and then extorted them by holding their household goods hostage until they paid fraudulently inflated prices.

Cohen was the office manager and dispatcher of Advanced Moving Systems, a Florida-based moving company. As office manager, Cohen handled customer complaints and assisted in running the day-to-day operations of Advanced Moving. According to court documents, Between February 2001 and February 2003, Cohen solicited business for Advanced Moving Systems by offering artificially low estimates for moving prices. Cohen also supervised loading foremen who typically rushed customers through paperwork, causing them to sign blank or incomplete documents. Once the customers' goods had been loaded, Cohen and his co-conspirators would inflate the total price of the move by claiming that the customers' goods occupied more cubic feet than had been originally estimated by Advanced Moving Systems and/or by overcharging the customers for packing materials.

Cohen and his co-conspirators would demand full payment of the inflated price before Advanced Moving Systems would deliver their goods. He ignored customers' repeated complaints about the inflated price and/or lied to the customers about the delivery of their goods, often using false names when dealing with customers over the telephone and in writing. When customers refused to pay the inflated price, Cohen and his co-conspirators arranged to warehouse customers' goods, and refused to divulge the location of the goods to customers.

Cohen fled to his native Israel and was last known to be residing in Hollywood, Florida. Tamir Cohen is the brother of Oshri Cohen also wanted by the USDOT-OIG for extortion by moving company.
