According to the first versions, Leo Clerc had not been able to return from his trip from Switzerland for allegedly testing COVID-19 positive, but a statement was released shortly thereafter explaining that the model had been arrested for having committed tax crimes when he was an accountant for a major Swiss transnational. According to the document, the fraud also featured an ex-partner of Clerc, who is currently in England and four other friends of the model.

According to Window, fraude would have been committed using credit cards belonging to the company and whose accounting Clerc handled along with his accomplices, so they took advantage of the credit for own expenses. The money was used by Leo and his ex-partner to travel through different countries such as Morocco, Polynesia, Thailand, Milan, Venice, Japan, China, Greece, Cannes and Maldives.

In the statement made known to Leo Clerc, he listed the incident as a bug of youth "of which I repent to this day; a mistake that I publicly admitted and which had a public sanction, an error on which I will not stop until I compensate the society of my country for any harm that has caused it directly or indirectly. I am currently in Switzerland attending to my legal status in total freedom of movement."
