FBI: “Five Charged with Fraud in Wilkes-Barre City Employees Federal Credit Union Investigation”

August 25, 2014

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on August 21, 2014 released the following:

“The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a Grand Jury in Scranton returned indictments Tuesday charging five members of the Wilkes-Barre City Employees Federal Credit Union with conspiracy and bank fraud. The indictments were sealed pending the arrests and/or voluntary surrender of the defendants today.

According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, Tino Ninotti, age 35, Jason Anthony, age 34, Leo Glodzik, age 43, Amanda Magda, age 30, and Jeffrey Serafin, age 35, were charged in three separate indictments related to activities of the credit union. Glodzik is also charged with tampering with a witness. Magda was the assistant manager at the Credit Union; Jason Anthony is a Wilkes-Barre City Police Officer; Ninotti is a former Wilkes-Barre City Police officer; Glodzik is a contractor whose company had a towing contract with the City of Wilkes-Barre.

Four of the defendants appeared today before Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick in federal court in Wilkes-Barre. Ninotti, Anthony and Glodzik were released from custody and ordered to report to pretrial services. Glodzik was ordered to surrender his passport. Serafin was released on his own recognizance. The hearing for Magda is expected to take place later today.

The indictments, unsealed today, allege that the defendants, during 2014, individually or by aiding and abetting one another, secured loans from the Credit Union by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, including the use of false collateral, the stolen identities of others who were not aware of loans in their names, and forgery. Magda and Anthony are charged in one indictment; Ninotti, Glodzik and Magda in a second indictment; and Serafin alone in the third indictment.

If convicted, the defendants face up to 30 years in prison and fines in the amount of $1,000,000.

According to the U.S. Attorney the charges are a significant step in an ongoing corruption investigation by the FBI. The case represents the pursuit of allegations against individuals; the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office value the close working relationships they have with local police departments, including Wilkes-Barre’s, and with honest police officers. These relationships will continue.

The prosecution is the result of a joint investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) which plays an integral role in investigations of fraud and public corruption. Prosecution is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Olshefski.

Luzerne County citizens, as well as employees and officials of local government are urged to come forward and provide relevant information about this case and others involving corruption in local government by contacting the Scranton FBI Office at 570-344-2404.

Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.

A sentence following a finding of guilty is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.”

FBI: “Former Mortgage Broker Indicted for Defrauding First Coweta Bank”

July 19, 2013

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on July 18, 2013 released the following:

“GAINESVILLE, GA— Amy B. Williams, 48, of Buford, Georgia, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges arising out of a scheme to defraud First Coweta Bank.

“Bank fraud is a critical problem throughout the United States, but it has hit Georgia especially hard,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “Georgia leads the nation in bank failures since 2008, with 78 banks failing—including First Coweta Bank, the bank this defendant is charged with defrauding.”

According to United States Attorney Yates, the indictment, and other information presented in court: Williams was the sole owner of United International Mortgage (UIM) Corporation in Buford, Georgia, and was in the business of arranging construction loans for residential builders.

In April 2007, UIM closed three construction loans for one of its customers, Mainstreet Builders Inc. The loans were intended to finance the cost of constructing three new houses in Suwanee, Georgia. The loans, which totaled more than $1.7 million, were funded by First Coweta Bank.

Williams directed an unindicted co-conspirator to forge signatures on loan documents and caused those documents to be faxed to First Coweta Bank. The bank then wire transferred the loan proceeds to an account controlled by Williams. Williams was required to hold the money in trust for the builder and to disburse the money to the builder on a draw basis, as work on the three houses progressed. Instead, she used more than $1.1 million of this money to pay off her personal debt at another bank and wire transferred $60,000 into her personal checking account. After converting First Coweta Bank’s money to her own use, Williams attempted to cover up her crime by e-mailing false documents and misleading photos to the bank.

Mark F. Giuliano, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated, “The actions of Ms. Williams, as alleged in the indictment, directly led to the failure of the First Coweta Bank and, as such, clearly demonstrates the serious nature and impact of those actions. The FBI will continue to coordinate its bank fraud investigations with its various law enforcement partners in an effort to effectively identify, investigate, and present for prosecution those individuals who do so much harm to the banking industry.”

Jason T. Moran, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation-Office of Inspector General Southeast Region, said, “The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is committed to its partnerships with others in the law enforcement community as we address mortgage fraud and bank fraud cases throughout the country. The American people need to be assured that their government is working to ensure integrity in the financial services and housing industries and that those involved in criminal activities that undermine that integrity will be held accountable.”

Williams was arraigned today before United States Magistrate Judge J. Clay Fuller in Gainesville, Georgia.

The indictment charges one count of conspiracy and six counts of bank fraud. Each count carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1,000,000. In determining the actual sentence, the court will consider the United States Sentencing Guidelines, which are not binding but provide appropriate sentencing ranges for most offenders.

Members of the public are reminded that the indictment contains only allegations. A defendant is presumed innocent of the charges, and it will be the government’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.

This case is being investigated by special agents of the FBI and the FDIC Office of Inspector General.

Assistant United States Attorney Russell Phillips is prosecuting the case.”

Bank Employee, Edna Edith Sepulveda, Indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for Allegedly Committing Federal Bank Fraud Crimes

July 17, 2013

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on July 15, 2013 released the following:

“Bank Employee Charged with Bank Fraud

MCALLEN, TX— Edna Edith Sepulveda, 39, of McAllen, has surrendered to federal authorities following the return of an indictment alleging she perpetrated more than $200,000 in bank fraud, United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson announced today.

The indictment was returned July 9, 2013, and she made her initial appearance today, at which time she was permitted release upon posting bond.

According to the indictment, Sepulveda was a former employee of Inter National Bank of McAllen.

If convicted, Sepulveda faces up to 30 years in federal prison, as well as a $1 million fine.

This case is being investigated by the FBI with the cooperation of Inter National Bank. Assistant United States Attorney Jason C. Honeycutt is prosecuting the case.

An indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct, not evidence. A defendant is presumed innocent unless convicted through due process of law.”

Florida Man Indicted in an Alleged $4 Million Bank Fraud Related to Massillon Construction Project

July 3, 2013

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on July 2, 2013 released the following:

“A Florida man was indicted on four counts for a scheme in which he defrauded Fifth Third Bank of approximately $4 million, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Russell W. Spitz, age 75, owned and operated his company, Vision Power Systems, out of the Jacksonville, Florida area, where is currently residing. He was indicted on one count of bank fraud and three counts of wire fraud.

The indictment charges that between in or around December 2006 and in or around August 2008, Spitz knowingly executed a scheme to defraud Fifth Third Bank of approximately $4 million.

The indictment alleges that this scheme began when Spitz’s company, Vision Power Systems, agreed to construct and operate a biomass boiler for FiberCorr, a corrugated paper company based in Massillon, Ohio. The biomass boiler was intended to reduce energy expenses by providing heat and steam power to FiberCorr’s paper mills. The project was financed by the Stark County Port Authority, but Fifth Third Bank issued a letter of credit to guarantee the bonds.

The indictment alleges that Spitz submitted a number of fraudulent documents to Fifth Third Bank during the loan negotiation process, which Fifth Third Bank relied up on when it decided to enter into the loan agreement with Spitz. Fifth Third Bank disbursed approximately $4.1 million for the project.

The indictment alleges that Spitz did not use the funds for construction of the boiler, and, as a result, construction on the boiler stopped in 2008. The project was never completed.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any; the defendant’s role in the offense; and the characteristics of the violation.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Chelsea S. Rice of the Cleveland U.S. Attorney’s Office, following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Father and Son Allegedly Linked to Separate Federal Fraud Schemes Arrested at LAX as They Prepared to Leave U.S. with One-Way Plane Tickets to Russia

May 11, 2013

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 10, 2013 released the following:

“LOS ANGELES— A father and son were arrested yesterday afternoon as they were about to board a plane to Moscow on federal fraud charges that include allegations that the older man sent tens of thousands of bogus “invoices” to small business owners in California in a shakedown scheme that caused at least 5,000 victims to send $225 to a fake company that purported to be a state agency.

The men—Viktor Ryzhkin, 45, of the Little Armenia section of Los Angeles; and his son, Evgenii Ryzhkin, 22, who lived with his father—were arrested late yesterday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport by federal agents as they prepared to board a Transaero Airlines flight to Russia. The Ryzhkins, both of whom are Russian nationals, and two other family members, all had one-way tickets to Moscow that had been purchased on Monday.

According to a criminal complaint filed Thursday afternoon in United States District Court, Viktor Ryzhkin targeted more than 170,000 California small business owners in a mail fraud scheme that would have brought in nearly $40 million had all of the potential victims complied with demands to send payments to “Corporate Business Filings,” a Beverly Hills company set up and controlled by Viktor Ryzhkin.

The small business owners targeted in this scheme received invoices that appeared to be from the state of California, notifying them that they each owed $225 to the state and directing them to fill out certain forms related to their businesses. The letters sent to the victims—all of which were sent over the course of several days at the end of March and beginning of April—each listed the correct, publicly available California Small Business Administration entity number assigned to the particular small business. The business owners were told in the letters that they would face $250 penalties if they did not remit payment by April 15, 2013, and did not fill out the forms as directed. The letters and invoices that appeared to be from the state of California were completely bogus.

Investigators believe that Viktor Ryzhkin became aware of the investigation into his scheme in late last month. Viktor and Evgenii Ryzhkin, accompanied by the two family members, were about to board a plane at 4:00 p.m. yesterday, when they were arrested by United States Postal Inspectors.

Evgenii Ryzhkin was charged in a separate criminal complaint filed yesterday in United States District Court. Evgenii Ryzhkin is charged with participating in a conspiracy to take over home equity lines of credit in a scheme that caused at least $1.2 million in losses. According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint against Eygenii Ryzhkin, he was caught on surveillance video depositing a stolen check linked to a hijacked HELOC account.

Both Ryzhkins are expected to make their initial court appearances this afternoon in United States District Court.

Viktor Ryzhkin is charged in a criminal complaint with mail fraud, which carries a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.

Evgenii Ryzhkin is charged in a separate criminal complaint with bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud, each of which carries a statutory maximum sentence of sentence of 30 years in federal prison.

A criminal complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in court.

This two cases against the Ryzhkins are being investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service. The Federal Bureau of Investigations and U.S. Customs and Border Protection assisted during yesterday’s arrests.”

Jerry Williams to ask for leniency in Tuesday’s federal court sentencing

June 12, 2012

NaplesNews.com on June 11, 2012 released the following:

“By LAURA LAYDEN

FORT MYERS — Once facing fraud charges that could have put him away for life, Jerry Williams, the ex-CEO of Orion Bank in Naples, won’t spend more than 15 years in prison.

Under his plea agreement, he can’t get any more time than that for his crimes.

But he’s asking for a sentence of no more than five years, arguing through his attorneys that when he crossed the line it was an “isolated mistake.”

His sentencing hearing is at 1 p.m. Tuesday in federal court in Fort Myers.

Williams, 52, pleaded guilty to three counts involving bank fraud at Orion, with each count carrying a sentence of up to five years. He faces fines of at least $250,000 and he’s agreed to pay restitution to his victims. Charges in his original 13-count indictment carried a maximum sentence of 220 years in prison.

“Based on the fact he only pleaded to three of the 13 charges I see no reason for any additional leniency,” said Patrick Miller, Orion’s former senior vice president and one of the hundreds of shareholders in Orion’s holding company who lost millions when the bank failed in November 2009.

Williams admitted to orchestrating a complex scheme that involved illegally raising more capital for Orion and selling off bad loans to a borrower to make the failing bank appear in better financial shape than it was to its regulators.

Williams isn’t the only bank executive to find himself in trouble after doctoring financial documents and lying to state and federal regulators. Some of the more recent cases resulted in sentences ranging from a few months to more than six years in prison:

** In late 2011, a former Georgia banker was sentenced to six years in federal prison for a scheme that netted him kickbacks for fraudulent loans made to a Florida real estate developer. On top of his sentence, banker S. Pope Cleghorn Jr., the former president and CEO of Hometown Bank, had to pay more than $2.5 million in restitution to SunTrust, which acquired the bank after its collapse in 2008.

** Earlier this year, Mary S. Becker, a former vice president of Jersey State Bank in Illinois, was sent to prison for five years and three months for bank fraud and ordered to pay restitution after siphoning $4.45 million from the bank, putting it into her accounts.

** About a year ago, William Sandison, the former CEO of Community National Bank in Minnesota, got a four-month prison sentence and had to pay a $30,000 fine after he pleaded guilty to defrauding nearly two dozen other banks that invested millions of dollars in a failed town center project.

** A little more than two years ago, David Kennelly, a former executive with the Bank of Clark County in Washington, was sentenced to four months in prison after he hid appraisals on 17 properties that had fallen in value. Based on the appraisals, regulators would have required his bank to set aside nearly $17 million in reserves for loan losses.

** In late 2010, Jeffrey Thompson, former president of Hume Bank in Missouri, got a 6-and-1/2-year prison sentence after admitting he concealed problem loans from regulators and altered records. Loan losses caused the bank to fail in March 2008.

Peter Turecek, a senior managing director in the New York office of Kroll, a leading risk consulting company, said though plea deals can often result in lighter sentences for the accused, there are benefits to others. There doesn’t have to be a costly trial, saving taxpayer money, and it keeps the courts from getting clogged.

If Williams went to prison for life he wouldn’t be able to pay restitution, Turecek noted.

Bank fraud often doesn’t involve hardened criminals, he said.

“They are people who probably went into it with a high ideal and a desire to run a business and somewhere along the way something came up and when faced with an ethical decision or hard decision they made the wrong choices,” he said. “Then they tried to continue to cover it up, which led to more lies.”

Fred Gibson, deputy inspector general for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and a bank regulator, said his office has 210 open investigations and about half of those cases involve allegations of criminal activity against bank officials.

Some think there hasn’t been enough prosecution of bankers.

“The general feeling of a lot of people is that with this current crisis there weren’t enough put in jail,” said Ken Thomas, a Miami-based economist and independent banking consultant. “There is a public sentiment out there that ‘How could we have this terrible crisis with so many losses and very few people going to jail?'”

In the case of financial fraud, a judge needs to look closely at the victims and consider how they’ve been hurt, he said.

“You’re not talking about a lost life or someone who has lost a leg, or who is injured for life or paralyzed,” Thomas said. “But financial disaster can also ruin lives. They cause relationships to break up, foreclosures, lost homes, lost businesses.”

Williams’ co-conspirators already are serving time in federal prison and will have to pay restitution to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which lost $844 million when Orion failed. Their sentences ranged from two years to 5-and-1/2-years.

Nicole Waid, the federal prosecutor in the Orion case, wrote in a memorandum to the judge that Williams “clearly had the most to gain financially” from the fraud. He owned 24 percent of Orion Bancorp’s stock and was the largest single shareholder.

In 2009, Williams reported a net worth of about $78 million, but if his bank had failed at that time and his stock had become worthless his net worth would have dropped to $65,000, according to the court filing.

Waid’s recommending the court not go easy on Williams.

In a motion for a lighter sentence, Williams’ attorneys paint him as a community leader, a family man, a philanthropist, a caring employer. Attached to the motion are letters from his wife, Heather, and other supporters.

“He offers neither excuses nor qualifications,” his attorneys wrote. “And yet the facts of this case compel one to recognize it for what it is: a critical aberration from an otherwise exemplary life and career.””
