Scars and Marks Burns has a tattoo on his left forearm of three black triangles interlaced.


Burns' last residence was in Berkeley Lake, Georgia.  The vehicle he was driving was found abandoned in Dunwoody, Georgia.


Christopher W. Burns is wanted for his alleged involvement in a mail fraud scheme in Georgia.  It is alleged that Burns defrauded a number of victims out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. As part of his scheme, Burns allegedly falsely told victims that he was investing their money in a “peer to peer” lending program in which loans were backed by collateral. In reality, the collateral promised by Burns either did not exist at all or was worth substantially less than Burns represented.  He has not been seen since he left his home on September 24, 2020, one day before he was supposed to turn over documents related to his businesses to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  A federal arrest warrant was issued for Burns on October 23, 2020, in the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta, Georgia, after he was charged with mail fraud.
