FBI Seeking Florida Lawyer On Fraud Charges

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — The FBI is looking for a suspended South Florida lawyer suspected of disappearing with more than $3 million from his law firm’s client accounts.

Federal agents filed a criminal complaint Wednesday against 55-year-old Timothy McCabe of Boca Raton. The complaint charges McCabe with wire fraud and bank fraud. Much of the missing money was from clients involved in real estate transactions.

McCabe’s wife says he has been missing since April 2. McCabe’s partner said he had financial problems.

Investigators have uncovered emails McCabe sent to his partner saying that he had committed unspecified wrongdoing. His wife told investigators her husband sent her an email saying he had made bad business decisions.

The  Florida Supreme Court suspended McCabe’s license to practice law in April.
