On 2022-04-28, I sent an email to the F.B.I. to give them my reference for the case targeting the transnational criminal enterprise McDonald’s Corporation for fraud and money laundering.

I am also reminding the F.B.I. that the law firm representing McDonald’s France was Péchenard & Associés, a law firm which belongs to and/or used to belong to the parents of the former General Director of the French National Police.

FROM : Vincent B. Le Corre

TO : Mahonri Manjarrez (FBI language specialist)

SUBJECT: Case number McDonald’s

Note: the email has been redacted for readability and privacy.

Dear Mr. Manjarrez,

My reference for the case regarding the frauds and money laundering committed by McDonald’s Corporation and/or its subsidiary companies and/or its suppliers is:


Please try to remember to systematically quote this reference in all future communications.

If the F.B.I. has assigned its own reference to that case and if you want me to quote it in my communications to you, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I think it’s important since I am going to file at least a second case with the F.B.I.

I started to transcribe the phone conversation I had with the Field Office of the F.B.I. in Chicago back in December 23, 2015.

I believe I might have been misled by the F.B.I. considering that there is extraterritoriality of U.S. laws in this case according to me. I believe that some French officials might have been corrupted and no matter what, there is obviously a case of money laundering: it should have been obvious for the American executives that frauds were being committed in Europe by their subsidiary companies.

I am going to upload the audio recording on the cloud and I will send you the link soon. I will also send you the transcript to make your work easier. The conversation took place on 2015-12-23 at 20:30 Beijing time.

It’s late in China and I am very tired but if I recall correctly, I mentioned at some point public corruption. Remember that at some point in time, the law firm representing McDonald’s France was Péchenard & Associés, a law firm which belongs to and/or used to belong to the parents of the former General Director of the French National Police, Frédéric Péchenard.

Considering that there was a time McDonald’s France was suspected of running an illegal lottery in France, when exactly did McDonald’s France decide to hire Péchenard & Associés to defend their interests?

There is obviously a conflict of interests since it’s the Police who is in charge of investigating crimes like aggravated frauds.

Furthermore, there are ties between Frédéric Péchenard and François Molins.

Please don’t keep silent. I don’t believe it’s the right way to treat a victim of organized crime who is seeking your help. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

I am the key witness and whistleblower in the major criminal RICO case targeting McDonald’s Corporation and their accomplices for fraud, money laundering, and corruption of foreign officials and magistrates. Initially granted anonymity by the European Court of Human Rights (Rules 33 and 47 of the Rules of Court), I made the decision in August 2023 to temporarily go public with my identity. This decision, driven by concerns for my own safety and that of my loved ones, was taken despite the potential risks, hoping it will be temporary only and that I can return to anonymity soon.
