Former Texas Financial Planner Facing Charges in $8 million Ponzi Scheme

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law Offices:

Charles D. Jones, a former financial adviser from Texas, was charged with stealing at least $8 million from his clients in a Ponzi-type investment scheme during the past decade.

Jones was the owner of wealth management firm Charles D. Jones Capital Management, Inc. from 2004 to 2015. His company provided financial planning and investment management for individuals, trusts, foundations and retirement funds.

Jones allegedly stole money and property from his various investors and used their money and property as his own. In addition, Jones used some of the money to pay his personal, family and business expenses. Jones was able to cover up his fraud for many years by using inaccurate tax returns, by lying to his investors and by creating false documents and statements, which hid the thefts from his clients.
