A man has been charged with stalking and harassing an FBI agent who had investigated him by posting a fake Craigslist sex ad that included the agent's phone and address. The interstate stalking charge against year-old Frederick Banks, of Pittsburgh, was unsealed this week.
A federal magistrate on Tuesday ordered Banks jailed until trial. The agent isn't named in the indictment and is identified only by his initials, T. He has since transferred to the Tampa, Florida area, where the Craigslist ad was posted June 25, according to a printout of it filed with the court.
Suspected stalker: Frederick Banks above has been charged with stalking and harassing an FBI agent who had investigated him by posting a fake sex ad on Craigslist. The ad identifies the poster as a 'married white boy' who is seeking a male sexual partner for himself and his wife, described as a 'blonde gorgeous girl next door type.
The ad, which says 'all races welcome can play anytime,' resulted in the agent getting two phone calls in response, prosecutors said. The agent worked in Pittsburgh and helped investigate Banks before he was sentenced to five years in prison for a case in which he sold bogus and pirated computer software online, authorities and court records said.
Banks was later convicted in a case of trying to buy coins and other valuables online with bad checks and sentenced to an additional five years and three months in prison. He was released from prison in but was sent back for 14 more months after he violated his probation by opening foreign exchange s using stolen identities, court records show.
Magistrate Judge Keith Pesto ordered Banks jailed given his recent criminal conduct 'coupled with the very different character' of the Craigslist ad. Banks had falsely claimed the agent held his girlfriend at gunpoint to get her to implicate him in counterfeit software, authorities said, and apparently sought retribution by posting the Craigslist ad.
Retaliation: The fake ad that Banks posted to Craigslist included the agent's phone and address. A judge ordered on Tuesday that Banks remain in jail until his trial.
Banks' attorney didn't immediately return a call and an seeking comment Wednesday. According to the Pittsburgh Post-GazetteBanks has also been labeled a 'frequent filer' of lawsuits in U. District Courts, 'often insisting in handwritten complaints that the CIA is controlling his thoughts with bio-electric sensors and voice to skull technology.
