Geoffrey W. Nehrenz, of Uniontown, Ohio, Accused of Defrauding Investors of $5.5 Million

Geoffrey W. Nehrenz, 36, and of Uniontown, Ohio, has received an eight-count federal indictment for his reported role operating a Ponzi scheme in which 19 investors were defrauded out of approximately $5.5 million, according to reports from Ohio law enforcement officials currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.

Geoffrey W. Nehrenz is looking at one count of securities fraud, three counts of wire fraud, one count of mail fraud, one count of fraud by an investment advisor, and two counts of money laundering, according to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio.

The Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment recovery lawyers are currently investigating Geoffrey W. Nehrenz and his alleged fraudulent schemes.

Nehrenz Reportedly Induced at Least 19 Clients to Invest Approximately $7 Million into his Hedge Fund, Keystone Capital Management, LLC, an Unregistered Firm

Between October 2009 and September 2013, Nehrenz reportedly promoted and sold investment contracts to clients through Keystone Capital Management, LLC, an investment adviser company located in Uniontown, an Ohio limited liability company registered as an investment adviser firm, but not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to reports from Ohio being analyzed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.

The reports further detail how Nehrenz reportedly induced 19 clients to invest in Keystone by falsely representing to potential clients that their funds would be pooled and invested during the day and converted to cash overnight. Rather than investing the funds, the reports claim, Nehrenz used client money to pay his personal expenses, to pay business expenses to promote and prolong his investment scheme, and to make speculative, high-risk trades.

Nehrenz reportedly induced at least 19 clients to invest approximately $7 million into his hedge fund, resulting in losses to his clients in the amount of approximately $5.5 million, according to court documents from Ohio currently being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.
