Dear Mr. Rodriguez,

Please be advised that this communication constitutes a formal notice under 18 U.S. Code § 4, as well as relevant state statutes. Your attention to its contents is imperative and should not be disregarded.

My name is Vincent B. Le Corre. We are connected on LinkedIn, and I obtained your email address through our 1st-degree connection on the platform. However, please note that due to a recent unjust suspension of my LinkedIn account, possibly as an attempt to silence me, you may currently be unable to verify our connection directly on the platform, as my profile is inaccessible.

Please kindly confirm receipt of this email using the built-in acknowledgment feature of your email client. If your email client does not support this feature, a simple acknowledgment stating “I’ve received your email” will suffice. Additionally, I kindly request that you promptly add my email address,, to your contact list to prevent it from being inadvertently directed to your junk or spam folder. In the event of no response, I will continue to follow up to ensure acknowledgment of receipt.

Under 18 U.S. Code § 4, commonly referred to as the “Misprision of felony” statute, any person who has knowledge of the commission of a felony against the United States must report it to a federal judge or other authorized government official. The report must be made as soon as possible, either directly to the authorities or through an intermediary.

As an Assistant District Attorney at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, I believe you qualify as an intermediary. However, and as you will soon understand, I believe you should not only report the content of the communications I am going to send you to a federal judge or other authorized government official but also deal with the crimes I am going to report directly at the district level for the crimes falling under your jurisdiction.

This is one of the reasons for my communication today: to inform you that you will soon receive emails in which you will be copied, containing explanations and evidence regarding crimes committed by McDonald’s Corporation and their accomplices.

These crimes encompass various offenses, including but not limited to mass-marketing frauds that target, among other people, vulnerable demographics, including children, as well as money laundering and potential illegal lottery. The implicated accomplices extend beyond McDonald’s Corporation, which is based in Illinois, and include franchisees across the United States, including the franchisees located in Manhattan (New York County).

I could notify the FBI, and I’ve already begun this process. However, I am contacting you directly for another crucial reason. I harbor strong suspicions of wrongdoing at higher levels. There are indications that there may be, or may have been, a conspiracy to conceal the serious crimes that have been committed.

However, whether or not there has been an attempt to bury this case should be irrelevant to you. I can now incontrovertibly prove billions of fraudulent transactions within the United States, not only beyond a reasonable doubt but beyond a shadow of a doubt. Consequently, I believe that some of the crimes that have been committed fall under your jurisdiction.

By broadening the scope of officials being alerted and formally notifying them, I am achieving two interconnected objectives: I am informing officials at state and district levels about the crimes that have been committed, thereby making it significantly more difficult for these offenses to go unnoticed or potentially be covered up by high-level officials, whether within the federal government of the United States or within the French government. Additionally, I have already begun notifying various Inspector Generals regarding what I believe might be mishandling or misconduct.

I have also initiated contact with Empower Oversight Whistleblowers & Research (EMPOWR), “a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization dedicated to enhancing independent oversight of government and corporate wrongdoing. EMPOWR works to help insiders document and report corruption to the proper authorities while also seeking to hold authorities accountable to act on those reports.” You can visit their website at the following address:

I urge you to diligently read the upcoming emails in which you will be included as a recipient. While some emails may not be directly addressed to you, it is crucial to understand that the information provided is relevant to this case. Therefore, I emphasize the importance of carefully reviewing all correspondence to gain a comprehensive understanding of the situation. Even if an email is not explicitly directed to you but includes you as a recipient, please consider it pertinent to your jurisdiction and treat it with the same attention as if it were directly addressed to you. Your thorough attention to these communications is essential.

Furthermore, I invite you to review the entire exchange between myself and EMPOWR, which is attached to this email. Please examine it thoroughly.

To uphold transparency, this communication will be shared on multiple platforms such as or, which is a non-official website on the FBI dedicated to transparency in this extraordinary financial and white-collar criminal case. Please be aware that while your response may also be published online, certain portions may be redacted to safeguard privacy or improve readability.

Yours sincerely,

Vincent B. Le Corre

Vincent B. Le Corre

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.
