As noted New York Times, there are people close to Robert Vesco who believe that he may have again tried to avoid justice by faking his d*ath. In the article The keeper, the publication detailed how Nicaragua offered asylum to Vesco, similar to how other countries such as the Bahamas, Antigua and Cuba admired Vesco for the potential he could bring to their country. Nicaragua went even further and gave him the fictitious name “Tom Adams” so that he could use it safely; it could only be one of the aliases that Vesco used. If a scammer once lived off a false name, who knows how many more times he did it and maybe he still does it?
He was able to lay low when he went to Costa Rica. According to The New York Times, he joined a number of technology-related businesses and worked as a dairy and cattle owner in the Central American country.
With a reputation like his, there’s a chance that Robert Vesco, if still alive, would be very proud to have a character based on him on TV, especially on a show as beloved as NBC’s The Blacklist.
