The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today filed and simultaneously settled charges that Ghassan Tawachi of Coral Gables, Fla., defrauded customers through sales of his software trading systems by falsely claiming expertise as a successful professional trader and by misappropriating $40,000 from one customer.
