On October 3, 2014, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office press release and court records, Howard Bloomberg, a forensic accountant and certified fraud examiner, pleaded guilty to one count of failure to file an FBAR reporting his interest in a bank account at UBS in Switzerland. The account, which Bloomberg opened in 1997, held as much as $930,000 in 2001. In April 2008, Bloomberg requested that UBS close his account and wire approximately $540,000 to an American account. His sentencing will take place in federal district court in Atlanta on December 19, 2014.
