An alleged investment fraud operated by disgraced Florida attorney Scott Rothstein could mount to $1 billion and involve thousands of victims, the FBI said Thursday. In a rare outreach effort, the FBI and Internal Revenue Service issued a public plea asking fleeced investors to come forward. John V. Gillies, the FBI chief in Miami, emphasized the venture was "not a one-man show." The investigation has brought down the operations of Rothstein's law firm, Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler.
