Three men were sentenced Thursday for their roles in a $194 million Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Trevor Cook, according to Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Among them is Jason “Bo” Beckman of Plymouth, who received 30 years in federal prison. Co-defendants Gerald Durand and Christopher Pettengill, meanwhile, were sentenced to 20 years and 7.5 years, respectively, for their roles in the scheme.

The three men were also “solely and jointly” ordered to pay $155.4 million in restitution to victims of the Ponzi scheme.(A total of $155.4 million must be collectively paid; until the sum is paid, however, each defendant is in effect responsible for the full amount, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman.)

Cook was sentenced in 2010 to 25 years in prison for orchestrating the scheme, which is said to have defrauded more than 725 people.

Because the evidence in the record supports the finding that the Thompsons disregarded the corporate form in their involvement with the entities, the district court did not abuse its discretion in (1) piercing the corporate veil to hold the Thompsons personally responsible for the damages arising out of the default judgment; &#8201;and (2) granting the receiver's motion to expand the receivership.

was aware of the fact that investors were being lied to!

A former business associate of convicted Ponzi schemer Tom Petters made a last-minute plea deal on Friday, admitting to fraudulently securing investments for the $3.65 billion scheme.

Frank Vennes, who was indicted in 2011 with a long list of charges, was scheduled to go on trial with co-defendant James Fry, a Minnesota hedge fund manager, beginning Tuesday. Vennes previously denied the charges but did an about-face Friday, pleading guilty to one count of securities fraud and one count of money laundering, according to Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney’s Office.

From 1995 through 2008, Vennes and his company, Metro Gem, solicited money for investment in Petters Company, Inc.(PCI) promissory notes. PCI was owned and operated by Petters, who is currently serving a 50-year prison sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas. Petters raised money to perpetuate a Ponzi scheme by selling PCI promissory notes to hedge funds, which purportedly would finance the purchase of consumer goods to be resold to big-box stores; in reality, no such transactions took place.

Vennes helped create hedge funds known as the Arrowhead Funds for securing investments in PCI, and between 1999 and 2008, the year in which the Ponzi scheme unraveled, all of the paperwork between PCI and Arrowhead went through Vennes or one of his employees. Vennes received more than $48 million in commission payments from Petters for brokering the deals, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Vennes was aware of the fact that investors were being lied to; for example, investors were told that whenever a retailer purchased goods from PCI, the retailer paid for them with funds deposited into a bank account controlled by a management company. Vennes, however, was aware that no payments were received from retailers and they instead came from PCI, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

2 Locals Charged in Multimillion-Dollar Mortgage Scams
Derrick Lance is charged for his alleged role in a $20 million mortgage fraud scheme involving 57 properties. Lindsey Rae Loyear, meanwhile, was charged on Friday for her role in a mortgage fraud scheme involving the Cloud 9 Sky Flats development in Minnetonka.
The U.S. Attorney’s office in Minnesota on Monday announced charges in two separate multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud schemes.
Derrick Ivan Lance, a 40-year-old mortgage broker from Edina, is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud for his alleged role in a $20 million mortgage fraud scheme involving 57 properties.
Between 2004 and 2007, he allegedly conspired with others to obtain mortgage loan proceeds based on falsified documents. Lance’s co-conspirators recruited buyers for residential properties; buyers were told that they’d get “kickbacks” once the deals closed, which could be applied toward the mortgages or be used to improve the properties.
Lance is accused of creating and submitting mortgage applications that misrepresented buyers’ actual finances. The false documents led to loans being approved, and loan proceeds being disbursed to title companies. Lance and others then had title companies put a portion of the proceeds into accounts not associated with the buyers in an attempt to hide the kickbacks, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Lance allegedly received about $200,000 for helping buyers to get loans for 26 properties. He faces up to 20 years in prison, and his co-conspirator, Roger Bill Hanks of Coon Rapids, pleaded guilty last month in connection to the scheme.
Also on Friday, Lindsey Rae Loyear was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud for her alleged role in a scheme to defraud lenders out of more than $5 million.
From 2006 to 2008, Loyear allegedly worked with co-conspirators to defraud lenders in local real estate transactions, including the purchase of the Cloud 9 Sky Flats development in Minnetonka—a $42 million scheme that has led to the charges of several individuals, including Sheri Lynn Delich, who told the court that she received instructions from Cloud 9’s developer Jerry Trooien on how to handle the money she fraudulently received.
As a real estate agent and mortgage broker, Loyear concealed information—including the fact that she had arranged short-term loans to buyers to be used as down payments and had given cash kickbacks to buyers, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Through the scheme—which involved more than 130 units—more than $8 million was allegedly transferred among accounts and used to pay the kickbacks and share proceeds among those involved in the fraud. If convicted, Loyear faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

A Lake Elmo woman faces eight tax felonies following her conviction on embezzlement charges.

Washington County prosecutors charged Catherine Mary Anton, 44, with four counts of filing false tax returns and four counts of failing to pay taxes.

According to the criminal complaint, Anton plead guilty to theft by swindle in March 2012 and was ordered to pay more than $75,000 in restitution. In addition, Anton allegedly failed to report the embezzled income, leading to erroneous refunds.

The charges each carry a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

Local Real Estate Agent Pleads Guilty in $10M Fraud
Barbara Puro and co-conspirators—several of whom have been sentenced for their role in the crime—operated a mortgage fraud scheme that allegedly involved more than $10 million in fraudulent loans.
Barbara Puro, a former real estate agent from Savage, admitted Wednesday to participating in a mortgage fraud scheme that defrauded lenders from across the country out of millions of dollars, Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney’s office said.
Puro pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She was indicted in September, and she faces up to 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors allege that between 2005 and 2008, Puro conspired with others to fraudulently obtain loan proceeds. She was employed by HomStar USE, ReMax Advantage Plus, and Coldwell Banker Burnet during that period.
Puro “routinely produced fraudulent documentation for lenders and title companies,” and she arranged for homeowners to sell their properties to straw buyers at inflated prices, the U.S. Attorney’s office said. She then gave the difference between the amount paid to the seller and the inflated sale price to her co-conspirators.

The receiver is all over this - look at cole - wallin and manning.

Edina's Crown Bank pressured Tom Petters to pledge two properties as collateral for an imperiled line of credit the day after federal agents raided his home and business, according to a new lawsuit filed by receiver Doug Kelley.

Kelley's lawsuit, filed last week, wants Crown to turn over $2 million for the allegedly fraudulent transfers.

Robert Walker, the founder and former leader of Ramsey-based alternative-energy company Bixby Energy Systems, Inc.—who may be best known for inventing the Sleep Number Bed—was convicted Wednesday of 17 criminal counts.

A 12-person jury met Monday to deliberate over Walker’s various criminal charges, which include fraud, conspiracy, tax evasion, and witness tampering.

The jury’s verdict—guilty on all counts—was read in federal court Wednesday in St. Paul, reported the Pioneer Press. While Walker was convicted on 17 charges, the St. Paul newspaper said a guilty verdict on just one of the counts carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison—meaning the 71-year-old businessman will likely spend his life under lock and key.
