Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari Arrested on Terror Finance Charge in 07, Scamed Scores with "FEDI" & Produced Movies at Universal Studios in Orlando FL

The FBI and NYPD arrested Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, a/k/a "Michael Mixon," on attempt charges of terrorism financing, material support of terrorism, and international money laundering, as well as additional charges of conspiracy and wire fraud in Feb 2007.

Alishtari, a 54-year-old resident of Ardsley, New York, facilitated the transfer of $152,000 with the intention that it be used in Afghanistan and Pakistan to help train terrorists.

Specifically, in the latter half of 2006, Alishtari accepted payment to discreetly transfer these funds, believing that they were earmarked for Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Alishtari believed that the funds were being sent abroad to support a terrorism training camp in Afghanistan by funding the purchase of equipment such as night vision goggles. One of these transfers, which is also the subject of the international money laundering charge in the Indictment, relates to Alishtari’s transfer of $25,000 from a bank account in New York to a bank account in Montreal, Canada, with the intent that the funds be used to provide material support to terrorists.

From approximately 1998 through 2004, Alishtari committed a massive fraud in which he stole millions of dollars from his victims through the operation of a loan investment program he called the "Flat Electronic Data Interchange" ("FEDI").

During the time frame of 2003 to 2007, Alishtari was producing movies at Universal Studios in Orlando FL under the name.... GLOBAL PEACE FILM FESTIVAL, INC.
