Seeking Potential Victims of Tongi Tupe Investment Program

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is seeking to identify possible vicitms of Tilila Siola’a Walker Sumchai, Richmond, who is alleged to have committed wire fraud, mail fraud, securities fraud, and the sale of unregistered securities.

According to court documents, more than 1,000 investors invested over $13 million with Walker Sumchai, who orchestrated a scheme to defraud investors from her Stockton office. Walker Sumchai promised investors guaranteed returns on their investments if they purchased shares of the Tongi Tupe investment program. Instead, she took investors’ money and used it for her own personal expenses, including gambling, and used it to pay back and lull earlier investors.

The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of federal crimes that it investigates and provide these victims with information, assistance services and resources. 

If you believe you are a victim of the Tongi Tupe investment program, please complete this questionnaire. Your responses are voluntary but would be useful in the federal investigation and to identify you as a potential victim. Based on the responses provided, you may be contacted by the FBI and asked to provide additional information.
