CBS' Investigation continued the saga that Armen Keteyian began two weeks ago of Louie and Z, the pair of undercover FBI agents posing as Atlantic City wise guys. The first part featured tales of infiltrating the Russian mob. Now we hear about Operation Royal Charm, a hoax wedding that lured leaders of gangs from Canada, Thailand and China into the United States so they could be arrested. Royal Charm was the name of the luxury yacht on which the knot was supposed to be tied. Keteyian explained that "Asian organized crime traffics in everything from human cargo to fake Viagra to ecstasy to weapons." Its specialty is counterfeit brands, with "cigarettes the biggest moneymaker." A carton selling for $70 can be faked in China for as little as $6.
