Tom Simon - FBI Special Agent
Special Agent Tom Simon joined the FBI in 1995. He currently investigates high-yield investment frauds, major embezzlement, and traditional white collar crimes affecting Hawaii's residents and small business community. He was the case agent on the "Operation Unhappy Returns" initiative to combat investment frauds in Hawaii. In addition to his investigations, Tom also serves as the press spokesperson for the Honolulu FBI office and is a regular fixture on local news programs and radio talk shows.
Prior to transferring to the FBI Honolulu office, Tom worked at the FBI Chicago office for 14 years where he investigated financial crimes, counter-terrorism, and political corruption. Following the 9-11 attacks, he was assigned to a team of Special Agents who dismantled several Islamic charities funneling money to Al Qaeda and other extremist groups. Tom's final case in Chicago was the investigation of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich which culminated in racketeering charges after the Governor allegedly tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by U.S. President Barack Obama. Tom will be presenting a program titled "Fraud Threats to You and Your Small Business" to the chamber.
