La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle annonce qu'elle condamne Robert Mihailovich, Sr. et Growth Capital Management LLC à payer plus de 9.3 millions de dollars pour fraude.
Robert Mikhaïlovitch aurait abusé 93 personnes et gagné plus de 30 millions de dollars en vendant frauduleusement des contrats à terme et de devises (Forex).
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that it obtained an order of permanent injunction against defendants Robert Mihailovich, Sr. (Mihailovich, Sr.) of Rockwall, Texas, and Growth Capital Management LLC (GCM) requiring Mihailovich, Sr. and GCM to make restitution to defrauded customers, disgorge ill-gotten gains, and pay a civil monetary penalty together, totaling over $9.3 million for fraudulently soliciting over $30 million from customers to trade commodity futures contracts and foreign currency (forex). The order also imposes permanent trading and registration bans against the defendants.
The court’s order, entered on June 26, 2012, arises out of a CFTC complaint filed on July 27, 2010, against Mihailovich, Sr., GCM, and Robert Mihailovich, Jr. (Mihailovich, Jr.), Mihailovich, Sr.’s son. As alleged in the complaint, Mihailovich, Sr. was convicted and incarcerated on federal wire fraud charges, served 27 months, and while on a three-year supervised release, fraudulently solicited and accepted more than $30 million from approximately 93 customers to open managed trading accounts. The complaint also alleged that Mihailovich, Jr., at the time of GCM’s initial registration, failed to disclose Mihailovich, Sr.’s involvement with GCM, and failed to disclose in CFTC registration filings that his father was a controlling principal of GCM. (See CFTC Press Release 5863-10, July 28, 2010.)
