(Anderson, SC) – Federal prosecutors have quietly filed charges against a Anderson, SC man who works for a super secret company that sends millions in clandestine cash payments from South Carolina to Iraqi officials.
53-year-old Charley Dean Hill of Anderson, SC is accused of not sending about $73,000 worth of the payments that were being sent to Iraq, according to the incredible felony information – a tool federal prosecutor use to get someone in custody
Federal prosecutors would only refer to the U.S. contractor as “Company A.”
In fact, the indictment gives no clue about how big the cash payments operation is to send cash payments to Iraq. However, it appears that millions of dollars were routed to Iraqi officials.

Hill is accused of making false statements to an FBI agent who traveled to Iraq to ferret out the scheme.
From February 2006 through February 2009, Hill “was employed in various capacities by a United States company that contracted with and provided integrated security and critical infrastructure services to, among other customers, the United States military (“company A”). company A operated in the Republic of lraq, among other places.,” the felony information states.
“As an employee of Company A, Hill was responsible for working with others, including Iraqi lawyers, translators, and others, to obtain licenses, permits, registrations, and visas in Iraq on Company A’s behalf,” the charges state.
On February 11, 2010, “Hill was interviewed by Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) … at the United States Victory Base Complex, Baghdad, Iraq, concerning payments made by Hill on behalf of Company A to Iraqi entities in connection with licensing and permitting processes,” the secretive information states.
“During that interview, Hill knowingly and willfully made materially false representations to the FBI concerning whether he ever mailed shipments of money from Iraq into the District of South Carolina. In particular, Hill falsely stated that he never sent mail shipments containing money from Iraq to South Carolina, when in fact he did so on numerous prior occasions, amounting to at least $71,900.”
