    Default Indictments Unsealed Alleging Pay-To-Play Bribery Scheme By Manager.

    "SALT LAKE CITY – Four indictments unsealed in U.S. District Court Monday afternoon allege several trucking companies in Utah paid more than $1 million in bribes to the Utah FedEx Ground hub manager as a part of a scheme to exploit the employee’s position within FedEx Ground (FXG) to make the trucking businesses as lucrative as possible. Ten individuals are charged in the indictments.

    Announcing the indictments today are U.S. Attorney for Utah John W. Huber, Special Agent in Charge Paul Haertel of the FBI’s Salt Lake City Field Office, Special Agent in Charge Tara Sullivan of IRS-Criminal Investigation, Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey Dubsick of the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General, and Michael Mentavlos, Special Agent in Charge of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service’s Southwest Field Office.

    According to charging documents, FXG operates approximately 39 hubs or distribution centers to move packages around the country. One of the hubs is located in North Salt Lake City in Utah. FXG contracts with local trucking companies to transport packages on behalf of the company. Ryan Lee Mower, age 47, of Bountiful, was FXG’s highest-ranking employee in Utah from at least 2008 to October 2019. His primary responsibilities included overseeing the FXG contract service providers and ensuring that each local trucking company complied with FXG policies and regulations." Read more...

    More info on the "pay to play" game at Fedex.

    Charges against Russian trucking owner now include bribery, kickbacks, murder-for-hire plot
    A federal grand jury recently indicted a Russian trucking owner — who is already awaiting trial on charges that include a $150 million military kickback scam and a murder-for-hire plot — as well as eight other Utah-based trucking company executives in an alleged “pay-to-play” bribery scheme involving a former FedEx Ground (FXG) manager.
    Court documents allege that Leonid Teyf, 58, of Raleigh, North Carolina, and the other executives paid more than $1 million in bribes to former FedEx Ground hub manager Ryan Lee Mower, 47, of Bountiful, Utah, in exchange for lucrative contracts.
    Federal prosecutors allege that Teyf and four other executives of Salt Lake Trucking Group (SLTG) paid more than $300,000 in bribes to Mower over a 10-year period to “fraudulently grow and maintain their businesses” and received preferential treatment.

    Teyf is part-owner of SLTG, which consists of 10 Utah-based companies that contracted with FedEx Ground.
