Nevada and Wisconsin Men Convicted in $10 Million Fraud Scheme

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Two men have been found guilty in a $10 million investment fraud case. Anthony Brandel of Las Vegas and James Warras of Waterford, Wisconsin were convicted by a federal jury of conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud.

In the fraud scheme the two worked with a Swiss company, Malom Group AG (Malom an abbreviation for Make A Lot of Money). The team asked investors for up-front payment to access investment opportunities and to make cash loans for a profit. They were accused of forging bank documents to deceive investors, which included a sworn affidavit from Warras.

Sentencing is scheduled in March. Neither of the men could be reached for comment.
