Businessman was sentenced to an 18-month prison for laundering close to $20 million in a U.S.-Canadian telemarketing scam


Gregory H. Whitworth, 45, of Brewton, Ala., was convicted of illegally laundering the proceeds of telemarketing fraud through a Columbus, Ohio, company called Integrated Check Technologies from March 2005 into January 2006. He was sentenced by Chief U. S. District Court Judge William M. Skretny.

Under the scheme, victims’ money was first deposited into bank accounts controlled by Integrated Check Technologies and then transferred back to telemarketers in Canada and the United States. Whitworth admitted that he was involved in the laundering.
