Former TD Executive Indicted in Connection with Florida Ponzi Scheme

Posted on October 23rd, 2014 at 9:23 AM

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law Offices:

Frank Spinosa, a former regional vice president of TD Bank, has been charged for his involvement in jailed attorney Scott Rothstein’s $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme. The bank fired Spinosa soon after Rothstein’s fraud fell apart in late October, 2009.

The federal indictment of Frank Spinosa alleges conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud. According to the indictment, Rothstein paid Spinosa to help prop up the scheme. Specifically by sending investors a lock-letter signed by Spinosa, saying that “the payment of funds from the TD Bank trust accounts was restricted to paying those specifically designated investors”, Spinosa made investors think their money was safe.
