La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle annonce qu'elle accuse Monsieur Brad Lee Demuzio et sa société, d'un montage Ponzi sur le Forex.
Le montant de la fraude s'élèverait à 1,8 million de dollars.
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced the filing of a complaint in federal court in Idaho charging defendant Brad Lee Demuzio of Chubbuck, Idaho and his company, Demuzio Capital Management, with operating a Ponzi scheme that solicited nearly $1.8 million. The money was primarily deposited into a pooled investment vehicle, in connection with off-exchange foreign currency (forex) transactions. The defendants’ fraudulent scheme is alleged to have caused approximately $900,000 in losses to investors, of which approximately $700,000 was misappropriated by the defendants. Neither Demuzio nor Demuzio Capital Management has ever been registered with the CFTC.
From at least June 2008 to November 2011, Demuzio allegedly solicited prospective and actual pool participants to enter into partnerships for the purpose of trading in forex. During the period, Demuzio allegedly fraudulently solicited and accepted approximately $1.8 million from at least 16 participants. In doing so, he also allegedly misled prospective and actual participants about the intended use of their funds.
