Michael Henschel, a 70-year-old man was found guilty of taking properties from elderly people and those who do not speak English. He appeared as a charismatic guy who was trying to help those people sell their homes but in reality, he filed illegal fake deeds on his victims properties, stole them and charged them illegal fees to clear their titles. He scammed many people in the Los Angeles area who were already struggling financially and collected more than $7 million from these properties using aliases, shell companies and numerous accounts to hide the crimes. Since his victims were either old or did not speak English, the effect was disastrous for them, leaving many homeless and unable to recover from the situation. In May, Henscheel was found guilty of mail fraud and was sentenced to 20 years of prison in September. As for those who lost their money and properties, the FBI is still trying to help them get their money back.
How can the FBI send a message to these scammers so they can think twice before committing these atrocious crimes? How can they help protect those vulnerable victims? The FBI can incorporate the new EyeDetect® technology into their system. EyeDetect, which launched in 2014, is used today in 34 countries by governments, law enforcement, depts. of corrections, investigators, attorneys, therapists and private companies. The test is similar to that of a polygraph, with both tests nearing 90% accuracy, but is fast, cheaper and less invasive than is a polygraph. A person taking an EyeDetect exam sits at a desk and answers true-or-false questions on a tablet. An infrared camera tracks eye movement, blinking and pupil dilation to determine if the subject is lying. After 30 minutes, an algorithm scores their deceptiveness on a scale from zero to 100. That way the criminals will know that there will be methods to confirm their involvement in crimes.
