Seeking Victims in Ho Wan Kwok (a/k/a Miles Guo) and Kin Ming Je (a/k/a William Je) Investigation
The FBI’s New York Division is seeking victim information in relation to an investigation of HO WAN KWOK (a/k/a Miles Guo), KIN MING JE (a/k/a William Je), and the following entities known as GTV Media GTV, G|CLUBS, G|MUSIC, G|Fashion, and the Himalaya Exchange.
From at least in or about 2018 through at least in or about March 2023, HO WAN KWOK, a/k/a “Miles Guo,” a/k/a “Miles Kwok,” a/k/a “Guo Wengui,” a/k/a “Brother Seven,” a/k/a “The Principal,” and KIN MING JE, a/k/a “William Je,” the defendants, and others known and unknown, conspired to defraud thousands of victims of more than approximately $1 billion, including victims located in the Southern District of New York. KWOK, JE, and their co-conspirators operated through a series of complex fraudulent and fictitious businesses and investment opportunities that connected dozens of interrelated entities, which allowed the defendants and their co-conspirators to solicit, launder, and misappropriate victim funds.
HO WAN KWOK, a/k/a “Miles Guo,” a/k/a “Miles Kwok,” a/k/a “Guo Wengui,” a/k/a “Brother Seven,” a/k/a “The Principal,” and KIN MING JE, a/k/a “William Je,” the defendants, and their co-conspirators, took advantage of KWOK’s prolific online presence and hundreds of thousands of online followers to solicit investments in various entities and programs by promising outsized financial returns and other benefits. The entities and programs used in the scheme included those known as GTV, G|CLUBS, G|MUSIC, G|Fashion, and the Himalaya Exchange, among others. In truth and in fact, and as KWOK and JE well knew, the entities were instrumentalities that KWOK and JE created and used to perpetrate their fraud and exploit KWOK’s followers. The scheme allowed KWOK and JE to enrich themselves, their family members, and their co-conspirators, and to fund KWOK’s extravagant lifestyle.
