In the 1990's everyone remembers the McDonald's promotions and rewards programs. Buy some food, and maybe you will become a millionaire. Well, a former police officer working as a vendor for McDonald's saw an opportunity to rig the contest and line his pockets with a portion of the winnings over 12 years.
However, a tip from an informant led to its unraveling, and a team of dedicated FBI agents, led by Special Agent Chris Graham (Ret.), took down the ring of fraudsters and sent eight people to prison.
The McMillions fraud and investigation were chronicled in a six-part HBO documentary about how $24 million was stolen from the McDonald's Monopoly game and how Graham and his team dismantled the fraud.
On today's episode of The Protectors Podcast, Mike and Mark welcome Chris Graham, who headed the investigation. Throughout his illustrious 26-year career, Chris held various critical roles, but his tenure as the lead agent in the McDonald's Monopoly Game Fraud case made him "famous."
Join us as we peel back the layers of this incredible story, exploring the highs and lows of a two-year-long investigation and the dedicated agent at the heart of it all.
