According to Crime Alerts under the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Christopher Robert Metsos is wanted for conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent of a foreign government as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Metsos is wanted for the first charge because he failed to register as an agent of a foreign government from 1993 to 2005. During the same time, Metsos is believed to have taken part in a money laundering scheme where money was illegally transferred to co-conspirators who also happened to be unregistered agents.
