Jean Chauvel is wanted for his alleged involvement in a securities fraud scheme based in Florida. From January 2011 through September 2014, Chauvel and a business partner used their fraudulent company, Forex Monthly Income Fund (FMIF), LLC, to conduct the fraudulent investment scheme. It is alleged that FMIF solicited money from investors nationwide, primarily elderly individuals, convincing them to use their retirement funds to conduct foreign exchange trading in international currency with promises of high rates of return on their investments. The victim investors' money went to Chauvel and his partner, where it allegedly was used to enhance their investment scheme and enrich themselves. There are at least 100 known victims of the scheme who have lost in excess of a total of one million dollars.
On April 23, 2015, federal arrest warrants were issued by the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, Miami, Florida, after Chauvel and his partner were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and mail fraud. Chauvel's partner has since been taken into custody, however Chauvel remains at large.
Jean Chauvel is believed to be in the United States and has ties to South Florida. He also has ties to Haiti and to Canada, and may travel to those places.
