La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié un communiqué dans lequel elle annonce qu'elle accuse Angel F. Collazo et ses sociétés, ACJ Capital Inc. et Solid View Capital LLC d'avoir monté un Ponzi sur le Forex.
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that on February 8, 2012, it filed a federal court action in the District of Puerto Rico charging Angel Fernando Collazo of Salinas, Puerto Rico, and his companies, ACJ Capital, Inc. (ACJ) and Solid View Capital LLC (Solid View), both of San Juan, with fraud and misappropriation in a $1 million off-exchange leveraged foreign currency (forex) Ponzi scheme. On February 9, 2012, the court entered a statutory restraining order freezing the defendants’ assets. On February 14, 2012, the court entered a consent preliminary injunction maintaining the asset freeze and barring defendants from violating various anti-fraud and registration provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act and Commission regulations.
The CFTC complaint alleges that Collazo and his companies fraudulently solicited commodity pool participants by falsely claiming profitable returns, while minimizing and failing to fully disclose the risks of trading leveraged forex. The defendants allegedly misappropriated pool funds to make payments to pool participants and for personal uses, failed to disclose their intended uses of pool participant funds, misrepresented the profitability of pool trading accounts, and distributed statements to ACJ/Solid View pool participants that contained false account values, including showing consistent, substantial trading profits.
