La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle annonce qu'elle accuse Robert A. Christy (Crabapple Capital) de fraude sur le Forex et détournement de fonds.
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that on April 19, 2012, Judge Richard W. Story of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, entered an emergency order freezing the assets of defendants Robert A. Christy of Milton, Ga., and his company Crabapple Capital Group LLC (Crabapple) of Alpharetta, Ga. The order also prohibits the defendants from destroying or altering books and records. The judge set a hearing date for May 1, 2012.
The order stems from the filing of a federal court action on April 19, 2012, against the defendants, charging them with foreign currency (forex) fraud, misappropriation, and making false statements to the National Futures Association (NFA). Both Christy and Crabapple are registered with the CFTC and are NFA members.
The CFTC complaint alleges that from at least October 2008 to the present, Christy and Crabapple have defrauded at least 20 commodity pool participants who invested at least $1,311,000 in a commodity pool that trades forex and is operated by Crabapple.
