Rochester stockbroker fraud attorneyGeorge Bussanich Sr Allegedly Operated a $7 Million Family-run Ponzi Scheme in New Jersey

George Bussanich, along with his wife, son and five others, allegedly operated a $7 million Ponzi scheme in New Jersey, according to Reports from the New Jersey attorney general currently under review by attorneys Alan Rosca and James Booker.

Several Peiffer Rosca Wolf securities practice lawyers are investigating investment recovery options on behalf of investors in Bussanich’s alleged investment fraud.

Investors who believe they may have lost money in Bussanich’s alleged investment fraud funds are encouraged to contact attorneys Alan Rosca or James Booker with any useful information or for a free, no obligation discussion about their options.

Bussanich, of Bergen County, allegedly defrauded 26 investors in a pattern of multi-million dollar scams, according to the aforementioned Reports.

The alleged scams allegedly involved the sale of purportedly fraudulent or bogus investments, the Reports note.

In total, Bussanich and his family members allegedly conspired with other persons to take more than $7 million from potential investors and also allegedly used the cash on luxury items including fancy automobiles, the Reports state.

The spectrum of investor has also come into play. For example, Elie Honig, the director of the state Division of Criminal Justice, states that Bussanich and his son and wife allegedly targeted the elderly in what he deems, “classic Ponzi-scheme fashion”, according to reports from New Jersey.

George Bussanich and Son Allegedly Sold Unregistered Investment Notes for a Fictitious Surgical Center that Was Purportedly Simply a Holding Company; Dividend Payments were Allegedly Produced from Principal Funds

George Bussanich and his son allegedly sold unregistered investment notes for a fictitious surgical center that was purportedly simply a holding company, according to Reports from the New Jersey attorney general presently under review by attorneys Alan Rosca and James Booker.

What is more, dividend payments were allegedly produced from principal funds, said Reports notes. Such behavior is a red flag for investors and often the telltale sign of a Ponzi scheme.

Even though the family was charged in September 2015 after making a settlement over an alleged case of fraud for $5.5 million, authorities further claim that they soon allegedly started another scheme which purportedly preyed on many of the supposed victims of the first case, according to Reports from New Jersey.

In total, eight individuals were indicted on a scope of charges including alleged conspiracy, racketeering and money laundering, Reports from New Jersey note.
