Brevard Businessmen, Donald Ray Babb and Ralph Ruth, Allegedly Ran Florida Ponzi Scheme
Have you trusted your hard-earned money with either Donald Ray Babb or Ralph Ruth?
If you have, you may be interested that the Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment recovery lawyers are currently investigating the case, wherein Donald Ray Babb, 58, of Merritt Island, and Ralph Ruth, 61, of Melbourne, have been accused of allegedly running a Ponzi scheme that swindled many investors out of as much as $19 million.
From June of 2006 through December of 2013, many of the victims of Babb’s and Ruth’s alleged scheme claim to have lost their life’s savings, and many of the victims were also senior citizens, according to documents from local, state and federal officials currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
Local officials allege that it is allegedly the largest scam of its type in Brevard in financial terms, and also reiterated that most investors were elderly.
Money was allegedly collected by Babb and Ruth to pay other clients but also reportedly used to purchase “real estate and other luxury items for themselves,” according to documents from the U.S. Attorney’s office currently being perused by attorneys Jason Kane and Joe Peiffer.
