Christopher Anzalone Investigated by Securities Lawyers Following Allegations of Fraud
Christopher Anzalone is being investigated by the investor right lawyers at the Peiffer Wolf law firm, following investment fraud charges filed against him by the federal authorities. Anzalone, a California resident, and the co-founder of the Ft. Lauderdale firms Liberty International Financial Services and Liberty International Holding Corp., recently pleaded guilty to leading an alleged $16 million precious metals investment and commodities fraud scheme, according to documents from the U.S. Attorney’s office currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
From 2010 until December 2011, Anzalone, one of five men charged by federal authorities, charmed customers to invest in gold, silver, and palladium. Liberty International Financial collected about $4 million in investments, but the only problem was that Liberty’s Fort Knox did not actually exist, according to documents from the U.S. Attorney’s office presently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane. The documents further allege that Liberty reinvested less than $200,000.
Anzalone Allegedly Told Investors Liberty had Assets Locked up in Panamanian Metal Depository
Anzalone allegedly enticed investors to sink $9 million into Liberty based on the claim that Liberty had significant assets tied up in a Panamanian metal depository, according to court documents currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
In addition, the aforementioned documents also allege that Miami-based investment firm Allied Financial Strategies also allegedly took part in the fraud, as its brokers also reportedly misrepresented Liberty International Holding‘s assets to investors. Said fraud allegedly led to more than $3 million in wire transfers to accounts controlled by Anzalone and his partners.
