Ya Cayeron
En 8/08/08 El FBI hiso una redada en el "Palacio" de Juan Rangel, arrestando al mismo. Hasta este momento Juan Rangel fue presentado ante un juez el cual le nego fianza. Sus automoviles de Lujo Mercedes, Lamborghini, Limosinas, todos fueron confiscados por el FBI. Este hombre no podra escapar la larga mano de la justicia, ya que la Compania Fiancial Plus Investmets, trabajaba con la promesa de regresar a sus investores un buen regreso por su inversion, eso nunca sucedio y muchas personas perdieron todo lo que invertieron. Juan Rangel simplemente se quedo sin dinero y ya no pudo hacer pagos a sus investores y en vez de comfrontarlos, decidio tomar el resto del dinero y "Desaparecer", Las personas que invertieron dinero en esta compania fantasma, con el tiempo podran recuperar parte de su inversion, ya que el FBI pondra a la venta todo lo que es propieda de Juan Rangel, asi como su mansion en Downey, automoviles, etc.

Con Juan Rangel encarcelado, se pudo evitar que mas gente cayera en las redes de un fraude, que conto ademas de la colaboracion de un tal "reverendo" Luis Berrios y de Imelda Lugo, ojala estas personas devuelvan el dinero de tanta gente defraudada.

Filed under: LOS ANGELES , Investment Scheme

LOS ANGELES (Map, News)- A businessman who allegedly bilked hundreds of investors out of an estimated $30 million faces a federal charge of bribing a bank official.

Juan Rangel, 44, the owner of Financial Plus Investments in Commerce, is accused of trying to use a Bank of America branch manager to cover up large cash deposits associated with his scheme.

Rangel's operation involved paying investors profits by using other investors' money and skimming a large percentage off the top for himself, according to a criminal complaint filed by the FBI.

Rangel, who was arrested last week after FBI agents searched his home in Downey, was being held without bail until a hearing Friday in U.S. District Court.

Report: Union local paid officials' relatives
Former union bookkeeper arrested for embezzlement Prosecutors allege Rangel paid the Bank of America manager to deposit his money without filing the federal report required for all cash deposits over $10,000. The manager told FBI investigators that he did file reports on the deposits without telling Rangel.

According to a court affidavit, Rangel's clients thought they were investing in a program that loaned money to distressed homeowners. The scheme faltered when his business' checks started bouncing and the company abruptly shut down. On July 25 dozens of investors mobbed his offices at Financial Plus Investments and his two other companies, RQ Investments and RQ Properties, the FBI said.

Investigators found 150 victims who reported more than $8 million in losses. At least an additional 600 investors who had not yet been identified lost a combined $30 million to Rangel, said U.S. attorney's office spokesman Thom Mrozek.

Rangel has not been charged with his business schemes, but Mrozek said more charges could be filed.

Rangel's attorney, Bryan Altman of Beverly Hills, said his client had hoped to recover as much as possible for his investors and work with authorities before he was arrested.

"The downturn in real estate values has severely affected the company's ability to pay investors," Altman told the Los Angeles Times. "This is incredibly stressful for Mr. Rangel. His concern is for the investors in his various companies."

Bank of America spokeswoman Colleen Haggerty would not release the name of the manager who deposited money for Rangel but confirmed that FBI agents interviewed a bank employee. She said the bank would cooperate with federal authorities.

Rangel advertised heavily in Spanish-language media, and published flyers and magazines that promised 100 percent returns on their investments. He encouraged investors to borrow from their home equity lines to invest in the program.

One of Rangel's employees told investigators that he believed his boss' schemes brought in $250,000 per day and sent large sums to a bank account in Pachuca, Mexico, according to the affidavit. This employee also said Rangel, a Mexican national, paid a man to meet with investors and persuade them not to withdraw their funds.
