The FBI is seeking the public’s help in identifying additional potential victims.

  • Or any other account believed to be used by Jeremiah “Jerry” Harris

Victims of federal crimes investigated by the FBI may be eligible for certain services, restitution, and rights under federal and/or state law. All identities of victims will be kept confidential.
