Robert Tweed, between November 2009 and March 2010, allegedly obtained over $ 1.6 million from his retail customers via a false and misleading PPM he implemented to purportedly offer and sell interests in his Athenian Fund LP, a pooled investment fund that he both created and controlled, according to the aforementioned AWC.
