A three-count federal indictment alleging wire fraud says a 41-year-old Omaha man sent e-mails for a scheme that netted him more than $170,000.
A release from the office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says David Musk used company names of Pavilion Commercial Group, LLC,
and Pavilion Commercial Group, LLC.
He told real estate developers seeking private funding that his companies could do "Interpol" or "FBI" background checks for them.
But prosecutors say Musk had no intention of doing the inquiries.
The first count cited an e-mail sent in July 2008, the last sent in September last year.
Each count carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
A public listing for Musk and the companies is no longer in service. Case records don't list his attorney.
