The man who allegedly duped the Monterey Institute of International Studies, as well as many other agencies, is facing additional charges.
Bill Hillar claimed to serve across the globe, as a Green Beret. He taught at major institutions, including the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Hillar even allegedly told some of his students that he was the inspiration for the film TAKEN where a former government operative's daughter is kidnapped and forced into sex trafficking.
However, it all came crashing down when a local student started calling him a fraud saying Hillar has tricked people for years.
In January, Hillar was arrested by the FBI and now the US. District Attorney's Office is adding 15 more counts of mail fraud and they are attempting to freeze all of Hillar's money.
