On 8 May 2018, a  former CIA officer was indicted on a charge of conspiring to commit espionage. Jerry Chun Shing Lee was approached by two Chinese intelligence officers who offered to pay him for information. The intelligence officers provided Lee with a series of email address through which they would communicate. The information Lee provided is believed to have helped China unravel the CIA’s spy network in the country.

Reports provide little insight into how much, or how ,Lee was paid for the information he provided, although he ‘made numerous unexplained cash deposits‘, which could potentially have been cash payments for his services.
