For over 26 years, I had the honor and privilege of being a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I became a SA in 1988 and was assigned to work White Collar Crime in the San Diego Division where I investigated various criminal violations including bank fraud, ponzi schemes, fraud by wire, mail fraud and public corruption. From 1998 to 2003, I was a Supervisory Special Agent of a Public Corruption Task Force in McAllen, Texas, where I supervised over 12 FBI Agents and Task Force personnel. From 2003 to July 2012, I was assigned to a Public Corruption squad in San Antonio and was the case agent on investigations that lead to the prosecution of multiple subjects. From August 2012 to July 2014, I investigated White Collar Crime, including bank fraud, investor fraud, money laundering and other related violations.

I have extensive experience testifying in both Federal and State courts in both criminal and civil proceedings.

Currently, I am the owner of Fred Olivares, CPA/CFF, PLLC. I also am the Owner/Manager of Talon Investigations. (Texas Department of Public Safety, Private Security Bureau, license number A20784.)
