Man from New York after being charged in Michigan added to “FBI Most Wanted” list

A New York man has been placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list on charges of international investment fraud and money laundering conspiracy.

According to the FBI, Robinson founded and was the primary operator of QYU Holdings (QYU), a fictitious professional investment corporation that traded foreign currencies.

According to investigators, from at least 2015 until June 2023, Robinson, also known as QYU, reportedly raised an estimated $100 million from investors in the United States, Canada, Panama, and a number of other countries for accused foreign currency exchange market trading.

Robinson is accused of running a Ponzi scheme in which he used newer investor funds to pay payouts to other investors, cover QYU-related business expenses, and maintain a luxury lifestyle.

Robinson was charged with eleven counts of wire fraud and one count of money laundering, and a federal arrest warrant was issued for him on January 11, 2024, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in Detroit.

According to authorities, Robinson has ties to Panama, the United Arab Emirates, and Colombia.
