6 June 2006: In violation of U.S. law, Hossein ESFAHANI, 45, of Lincolnwood, Illinois pleaded guilty to transferring almost $4 million to Iran (his native country) in violation of U.S. trade sanctions. ESFAHANI operated a money transfer business from his home without a license and transmitted the money to Iran between August 1999 and October 2003. He faces up to 57 months in prison when he is sentenced on October 3, 2006.

Prosecutors have also linked Esfahani to Chicago car dealer Amir HOSSEINI, who was charged last year with laundering millions of dollars in drug money. HOSSEINI, also a native of Iran, allegedly laundered money for the Vice Lords and other gangs. Authorities said he sold the gangs luxury cars for cash.
