Amthor would receive the withdrawn funds from the runners and distribute proceeds to scheme participants. On 10/01/08, James Paul Amthor was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in the Central District of California, for violation of Title 18 United States Code 1344, Bank Fraud. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Amthor on 10/02/08.
