— Federal agents are looking for an Overland Park, Kan., man who failed to appear for a hearing where he had been expected to plead guilty.

The FBI on Wednesday asked the public for information on the whereabouts of 46-year-old Ronald Catrell, who didn't show up Monday to federal court in Kansas City, Kan.

Catrell was last seen Sunday afternoon at his home. He was charged in December with bank fraud, money laundering, wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say Catrell scammed three banks out of millions of dollars in loans and duped several investors in a scheme to sell shares of Facebook last year, long before its public offering last Friday.

He is described as 5-feet-8 inches and 192 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair.

Interesting to note 1. If the banks scam people, the government bails them out. But if people scam the banks, the government prosecutes the people.

  1. He is 5 foot 8 inches tall. He might be hard to spot.

  2. He weighs 192 pounds. That might make it easier.

"Prosecutors say Catrell scammed three banks out of millions of dollars in loans and duped several investors ... ."

Sounds a lot like the recent news stories on the real IPO.
