La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle annonce qu'elle accuse Marina Bühler-Miko et sa société Coventry Asset Managers, LLC d'opérations frauduleuses sur le Forex.
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced the filing of a civil enforcement action in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against defendants Marina Bühler-Miko (Bühler-Miko) and her company, Coventry Asset Managers, LLC (Coventry), both of Washington, DC. The CFTC complaint charges that Bühler-Miko and Coventry fraudulently solicited members of the general public to trade off-exchange foreign currency (forex) contracts on a leveraged or margined basis through a pooled investment vehicle, the Coventry Eire Forex Fund (Coventry Eire). Neither defendant has ever been registered with the CFTC.
The complaint, filed on May 16, 2012, alleges that from at least June 18, 2008, through April 2011, Bühler-Miko and Coventry defrauded customers of at least $300,000 through their scheme.
In soliciting actual and prospective customers, the defendants allegedly made misrepresentations of material facts, including (1) guaranteeing customer profits of six percent quarterly, plus a bonus payment at the end of the 13-month “Asset Management Agreement” by trading forex in Coventry Eire, and (2) downplaying the risk of entering into leveraged forex transactions.
