Lawmakers press DOJ to help victims of Ponzi scheme


Seven lawmakers on Monday asked the Justice Department to investigate whether a Swiss bank is illegally blocking the transfer of restitution funds for victims of the second-largest Ponzi scheme in United States history.

 In a Monday letter, representatives from both parties asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review whether Swiss bank Societe Generale is complying with a 2013 settlement meant to return a major portion of $210 million to victims of Allen Stanford’s pyramid investment scheme.

 The lawmakers asked Sessions “to review this issue and re-engage on behalf of U.S. victims to expedite the return of the frozen assets so they can be properly distributed.”

Lawmakers want banks punished over massive Ponzi scheme


Lawmakers are asking a top federal regulator to crack down on several banks connected to a mid-2000s Ponzi scheme, arguing the government hasn’t done enough to get victims compensation.

 The lawmakers called on the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to punish several banks for holding funds for Allen Stanford, convicted in 2012 of running the second-largest Ponzi scheme in United States history.

 In a letter to acting Comptroller Keith Noreika dated Aug. 8, Reps. Roger Williams (R-Texas), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) and Vicente González (D-Texas) asked the OCC to update them on efforts to hold the banks accountable, compensate victims and prevent similar schemes from happening again.
