Bellevue, NE – Federal investigators have arrested a Bellevue man, accusing him of running a background check scam.

FBI agents took 51-year-old David Musk into custody on Wednesday. Musk had previously been indicted on wire and mail fraud charges. Investigators believe Musk formed a company then duped people into believing he could run FBI and Interpol background checks on people.

Authorities say he charged $600 per check. The Feds say he scammed victims out of $170,000.

Investigators say private citizens are not capable of performing FBI or Interpol background checks. Musk is slated to appear in court on Friday.
