    I was aware of Brad pumping LD Holdings (OTC ticker symbol LDHL) but never gave it much attention. But it seems that Brad's recent indictment and his efforts to promote the company have gained some attention in the investing community. I have heard of the Seeking Alpha website but have no firm opinion of it, they seem to have done the due diligence I didn't. September 21st of this year they published a story titled "Don't Get Dunked in LD Holding Pool of Hype" from which I quote:

    On June 23, 2010 John Ayling voluntarily surrendered his firm's investment advisor license.
    The Ohio Department of Commerce's division of securities said Tuesday it has abandoned its effort to revoke a Perrysburg firm's investment adviser license. The firm's president voluntarily surrendered it April 28.

    John Ayling, president and chief compliance officer for Capital First Management Inc. of Perrysburg, terminated the license after the division formally sought its suspension or removal in 2009, spokesman Dennis Ginty said.
    Yet ironically, he wants to help companies raise money and as we will discuss, solicit customers in his diners to buy into LDHL's business plan and stock.


    We are not going to ramble on about accusations and insinuations of fraud. This is a unique circumstance where we only need to look at LDHL's insane business plan, conclude how utterly ridiculous and hilarious it is and realize that John Ayling has played this game in the past under LDTI, which ultimately resulted in a destruction of investors' capital.
    John Ayling being the principle behind LD Holdings.

    Well today the same website reports the following:

    Ld Holdings Draws More Scrutiny As A Company Promoter Gets Indicted By Grand Jury


    On September 21, we published our initial short thesis on Ld Holdings (LDHL.PK) on Seeking Alpha - Don't Get Dunked In The Ld Holdings Pool Of Hype. If investors still choose to hold a long bias view after reading even more evidence presented in this follow-up, it is certainly their prerogative. But they have been warned. Our most striking finding will show that LDHL seems to be in bed with who we consider to be a less than angelic individual accused of running a $23 million investment fraud scheme. This should almost ensure that LDHL is heading back to near sub-penny levels any day now.


    Outspoken LDLH Supporter Indicted For Fraud



    Brad Huebner is an individual who, as we will show, has been instrumental in promoting the LDHL story. As an example, take this excerpt from a Huebner email solicitation, obtained from the web with a little digging:
    "In the last 60 days this thinly traded stock has gone from .02 cents to .24 cents and we're just now launching our marketing campaign to introduce LD Holdings to the Dinar community and beyond. Once you understand the demographics that'll grow this Company, I think you'll agree that it's worth taking a serious look at!"
    Sincerely
    Brad and the BH Group Team
    [Link to the article on Seeking Alpha dot com]

    When you read the rest of the article it makes me wonder if there might be another indictment in Brad's future. A few select quotes:

    Even if some investors want to view LDHL as a legitimate company, its relationship with Huebner almost ensures that it will lose the needed credibility to raise the much needed capital to execute its current business plan.


    To continue our dissection of the LDHL story, we will focus on:



    • The motivation for the pump of LDHL shares, as well research into characters, mainly Huebner, that have been very direct in encouraging investors to sweep up LDHL shares.
    • Letters of Intents ("LOI") that may have helped fuel the pump of LDHL shares. These "agreements" were inked with companies/ventures that appear to have become inactive within month of their formations. No disclosures have yet to be made regarding the status of these LOIs.
    • Inconsistencies Across Filings; Weak Disclosures
    And:

    One of the most striking statements made by Huebner is his plea to readers to contact him and/or John Ayling if they needed assistance in setting up brokerage accounts in order to buy shares of LDHL. We are not legal experts, but we speculate that Huebner and Ayling are walking a fine line with the SEC by soliciting investors to buy stock.


    We urge Huebner to send a follow-up email disclosing his 18 million shares which are up for grabs through a business consulting arrangement with LDHL and his company, Financial Wellness LLC.
    The next question investors may now be asking:



    • Is Brad Huebner really just an investor in LDHL?
    • Is he being compensated to tell the LDHL story?

    While we can assume Brad's comments insinuate that the answer is yes to the first question, the answer to the second is a resounding yes!
    I would love to just quote the whole article but I'm pushing the boundaries of fair use as it is. I would encourage anyone interested in the legal entanglements of one Bradford Huebner to read it for themselves.

    Mr. Pigott, there may be another class action suit in this for you.
    So your prophets of finance have fallen on their collective proverbial face, and you hear muffled voices calling: Welcome to the human race.

    Re: Bayshore Capital Investments and the BH Group

    A minor and uninformative update from Brad (but his attorney would have no other kind):

    Dear BH Group Members,

    We are sending this email for those of you that did not see the statement we posted on our website, www.thebhgroup.org or listen to the one posted on our Conference Call line.

    Due to pending alleged legal issues, I’ve been asked by the Court to suspend conversations with BH Group Investors including our weekly Conference Call until further notice.

    This action has NOTHING to do with the sale or legitimacy of the Dinar and you’ll be informed what appropriate actions to take when the Re-valuation occurs!

    I look forward to having a chance to defend myself but until them thank you for your prayers and support.

    Brad Huebner, Chairman
    The BH Group
    And I'm sorry Mr. Huebner, you HAVE legal issues in which you are alleged to have done many things but you are not "alleged" to have legal issues.

    I wonder when the court date is, I have some friends in Toledo (OK, "Alleged" friends), maybe I could couch surf.

    Re: Bayshore Capital Investments and the BH Group

    A small update. Nothing has really happened in the criminal cases against the BH Group et al but it looks like Mr. Pigott's civil case is dead in the water for now. The Lucas County website's docket for the case lists it as inactive and carries the following notice:

    11/29/2012 1 Title : ORD:ORDER
    ...UPON CONCLUSION OF THE HEARING, THE COURT FOUND
    DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO STAY THIS ACTION WELL-TAKEN
    AND GRANTED.
    THE ENTIRETY OF THIS CASE SHALL BE PLACED UPON THE COURT'S
    INACTIVE DOCKET UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS A PARTY TO THIS ACTION
    FILES THE APPROPRIATE MOTION TO LIFT STAY.
    The defendant's motion to stay was filed on the 4rth of October and can be found on this page.

    It looks like the civil suit will likely have to wait until the criminal charges are decided.

    Jacksonville man pleads guilty in Ohio to conspiracy in Iraqi dinar case


    Posted: April 19, 2013 - 10:38am


    By Dana Treen

    A Jacksonville man pleaded guilty Thursday in an Ohio federal court to a scheme to defraud investors in the sale of Iraqi dinar currency and two non-existent hedge funds, authorities said.

    Rudolph M. Coenen, 47, pleaded to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, one count of wire fraud and five counts of money laundering. His sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 12.

    Coenen and three other men promoted Iraqi dinar as having the potential to rocket in value once a reevaluation of the currency took place. They said the investments were protected by the U.S. government.

    The wheels move slowly but they do move. Can Charley and Brad be far behind?

    Re: Bayshore Capital Investments and the BH Group

    Thank you, and well, it's a start. The thing that bothers me about this case is the way Dinaridgits are saying "this isn't about dinar, it's about the hedge fund scam" and if you read the indictment, that is patently not true. While the non existent hedge fund was a big part of it, the marketing of the dinar as in investment was equally incriminating. Hopefully, since at least some of the other defendants look like they may go to trial, the whole thing will get aired out in court.

    Re: Bayshore Capital Investments and the BH Group

    From this morning's Toledo Blade:

    Fla. man guilty of conspiracy to defraud investors

    BLADE STAFF



    A Florida man who was indicted with three Toledo-area men in a scheme to defraud investors in the sale of Iraqi currency and phony hedge funds pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court, Toledo.


    Rudolph M. Coenen, 47, of Jacksonville pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and five counts of money laundering before Judge Jack Zouhary. A sentencing date was not scheduled.


    Coenen, owner of Bayshore Capital Investments LLC in Jacksonville, admitted to a conspiracy with Bradford L. Huebner, owner of BH Group, 17 N. St. Clair St., and two BH employees to defraud investors through the sale of Iraqi dinar currency and “placements” in two nonexistent hedge funds.


    Prosecutors said about $722,415 was solicited from prospective investors.


    Charges are pending in federal court against Mr. Huebner, 65, of Ottawa Hills; Charles N. Emmenecker, 65, of Sylvania, and Michael L. Teadt, 66, of Maumee.
    Bolding mine.

    Gregg's point is well made, sure the phantom hedge funds are an issue but it's by no means the only one. The Bayshore scam netted better than $720K but I have (unconfirmed) reports that there were more than 2 million in BH Group assets impounded so the hedge funds weren't even the larger portion of the fraud. Brad's trial should prove to be interesting, in more ways than one.

    3 local men reindicted in fraud scheme

    12/20/2013

    As federal prosecutors had promised, new indictments were handed up this week against three Toledo businessmen accused in a $23-million fraud scheme.

    Bradford L. Huebner, 66, of Ottawa Hills, Charles N. Emmenecker, 66, of Sylvania, and Michael L. Teadt, 67, of Maumee were indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday in connection with the sale of Iraqi dinar currency and two allegedly nonexistent hedge funds.

    All three are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud, while Mr. Huebner, owner of BH Group in Toledo, also faces multiple counts of money laundering and structuring financial transactions to evade reporting requirements.

    The trio were originally indicted on similar charges in 2012, but on Nov. 27 — just days before their trial in U.S. District Court was to begin — Judge Jack Zouhary “regretfully” dismissed the indictment, citing a technicality raised by defense attorneys.

    Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, said in a news release that investors lost some $23.8 million from dinar sales and more than $700,000 from the sale of nonexistent hedge fund seats and placements.

    Beginning in 2010, the trio allegedly made false statements to investors about the U.S. Treasury Department’s holdings of dinar and involvement in the Iraqi dinar investment market.

    “These defendants made false statements time and again to convince people to part with their savings and hard-earned cash,”
    he said. “The fact that they falsely claimed one member of the conspiracy was wounded while fighting in Iraq is particularly egregious.”

    A fourth co-defendant, Rudolph Coenen, 47, of Jacksonville, Fla. pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and five counts of money laundering, but he has not yet been sentenced. Coenen owned Bayshore Capital Investments LLC in Jacksonville.

    Michael Teadt got 60 months in prison for his conviction. Charles Emmenecker and Bradford Huebner filed for new trials and sentencing has been delayed until the court rules on their request for a new trial.

    Now what would be ironic is if they are both granted new trials and Michael Teadt testifies against both of them. While it is possible a new trial could happen, I don't think their request will be approved. Just stalling to stay out of prison a little while longer.

    I didn't see a sentencing ruling on Rudolph Coenen, but still looking.

    Sentences Handed Down Today

    Except for Rudy.

    Toledo-area men sentenced for roles in $24M Iraqi currency scheme

    by Amulya Raghuveer

    Posted: 2 hrs, 19 mins ago

    Nearly two years after being tied to a fraudulent $24 million scheme involving the sale of Iraqi currency, Toledo-area men have been sentenced for their roles.

    <Snip>

    Huebner was sentenced Thursday to 87 months in prison. Emmenecker was sentenced to 33 months behind bars. Teadt was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $5,767 in restitution.



    In 2012, the three men were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that they worked together to scheme $24 million from investors. The grand jury stated that the men knowingly conspired to obtain money and property by means of materially false and fraudulent promises. The scheme involved the sale of the Iraqi dinar currency and two non-existent hedge funds.

    <Snip>


    "When you knowingly mix deceit and trickery into the financial well-being of individuals, you create a recipe for devastation that could last a lifetime," said IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent Kathy Enstrom. "Today's verdict reinforces our commitment to every taxpayer that we will identify and prosecute those who promote illegal financial transactions."


    I bolded that last quote for truth. The Full article is available at the NBC24 website.

    87 months for Brad, better than 7 years for a 66 year old, that's harsh. And deserved. I always viewed Rudy as the bigger liar but I could never decide which of the two was the better liar. I've corresponded with Mr. Huebner a few times and he never broke character, he was always the simple and sincere sounding man you could have heard on the old BH Group calls.

    But there are too many small things, issues I never commented on that didn't really fit his "I'm too honest to have done anything wrong" defense. After the IRS raid someone with the honesty and humility Brad pretended to might have found cause to question the whole "make money by selling dinar dreams and dinar" business model. But after his relationship with Rudy ended Brad was looking for guest gurus for the BH calls. After the BH Group was shut down as a Money Service Business Brad struck affiliate deals with other dinar merchants. The BH Group writ large raked in close to 24 million, got raided, shuttered and all that money impounded and when Brad found himself in that particular hole he tried to use his "I ain't doing anything wrong" shovel to try and dig himself out.

    That isn't honesty, or humility. Now Brad has 7+ years to reflect on his mistakes.



    And The Blade ways in:

    Local men sentenced in dinar case

    Iraqi currency scheme turns into lengthy prison terms

    BY JENNIFER FEEHAN
    BLADE STAFF WRITER



    Describing him as “a scammer who got scammed himself,” a federal judge sentenced an Ottawa Hills businessman Thursday to 87 months in prison for defrauding investors who bought Iraqi currency and placements in two nonexistent hedge funds.

    <Snip>

    Huebner, Emmenecker, and co-defendant Rudolph Coenen, 49, of Jacksonville, also will be ordered to pay a yet-to-be-determined amount of restitution for the fraud scheme that federal prosecutors said involved some $23.8 million in sales of Iraqi dinar and $750,000 from sales of the hedge fund seats. A forfeiture of property also is to be ordered by the court.


    Coenen, who pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced Sept. 24 to 63 months in prison, was painted as “the bad guy” by attorneys for Huebner and Emmenecker.

    “Rudy Coenen is the guy who told the lies, and he made them up long before he ever heard of Brad Huebner,” Rick Kerger, attorney for Huebner, told the court.

    <Snip>


    Huebner made a lengthy statement to the court, saying he bought Coenen’s story — as many people did — hook, line, and sinker.
    “I will be the first to tell you that I am guilty of trusting people too much — to a fault,” he said.


    Huebner apologized to his family and those he harmed and expressed what he called “overwhelming remorse and embarrassment” for the position he was in.
    He also reiterated the claims he had made to family, friends, and others who became customers of the BH Group — that one day “in the near future” the Iraqi government would revalue its currency and everyone’s investment would pay off.


    Judge Zouhary said it sounded as though Huebner was still in denial.
    “You indicated today that you are still excited for all the investors,” the judge said. “Don’t be excited. Be saddened.”






    Full Article at the Toledo Blade website.

    I hadn't heard that Rudy was sentenced and for less time than Brad got. That almost doesn't seem fair but I bet Rudy's health issues will probably mean a larger percentage of his remaining productive life will be spent behind bars than Brad will.

    Now what is interesting to me is that in the article I found about the Teadt sentencing it said he got 60 months and appeared via satellite from Florida where he is living. Makes me wonder if this wasn't really Coenen who got the 60 months instead of Teadt since this article said Teadt got 2 years of probation and to pay restitution of $5,767.

    Re: Bayshore Capital Investments and the BH Group

    maximum was 7 years for $24m,
    I wonder how much they stashed, doing 7 years might be worth it and a piece of cake.

    If i had a criminal mind, and scammed public for 8 digits sum, and nobody noticed i stashed couple mills somethere,
    doing 7 years (maybe less on parole) with free food/housing/gym/library and humane work hours would beat most of the jobs.

    3 ordered to pay over $800,000 restitution


    Convicts to also enter prison soon


    BY JENNIFER FEEHAN
    BLADE STAFF WRITER

    Three men convicted in a scheme to sell Iraqi currency and seats in two nonexistent hedge funds must share the burden of paying more than $800,000 in restitution, a federal judge ruled Friday.
    Bradford Huebner, 67, of Ottawa Hills, Charles Emmenecker, 67, of Sylvania, and Rudolph Coenen, 49, of Jacksonville were ordered by U.S. District Judge Jack Zouhary to pay $836,124.60 in restitution.

    The restitution amount ordered Friday included $732,750 for the losses suffered by investors who paid $750 each for placements in hedge funds that were sold but never created. It also included $103,374.60 for losses caused by the dinar fraud.

    Stephen Hartman, who was co-counsel for Huebner, argued the court could not order restitution based on estimates of how much investors paid for dinar and how much they theoretically would lose if they sold it.


    “Here we have actual people who paid actual money and, if they don’t have a provable loss, we can’t ask [the defendants] to pay restitution under the Mandatory Victim Restitution Act,” he said.
    Judge Zouhary disagreed, writing in his order that “courts routinely value loss by determining the amount investors lost because of a defendant’s fraud.”

    Coenen, Huebner, and Emmenecker sought to delay the dates they were ordered to report to prison, but Judge Zouhary denied those motions. Coenen and Huebner cited medical reasons; Emmenecker wanted to spend time going over his case with the attorney handling his appeal.
    Judge Zouhary said the prisons where Coenen and Huebner will serve their sentences are equipped to handle their medical needs, and that Emmenecker can meet with his attorney at the facility.
    Emmenecker and Huebner are to report Monday, while Coenen is to begin serving his sentence Jan. 2.

    Please read the full article on the Toledo Blade website.

    I love it when the system works.

    I'd like to hear some feedback on the victim restitution process, how funds are disbursed, anyone affected is invited to comment. Without having seen the court documents and just going by my memory of how things seemed to transpire the restitution amounts look fair. $732,750 for the phantom hedge fund seems pretty spot on, all those $750 "seat allocation" fees Rudy and Brad bilked people out of. Only problem I see is that if they're jointly and severally liable for the amount Brad and Charley will have to pay almost all of it because Rudy needed his share of the take to get his home out of foreclosure and pay living expenses. I seem to recall proceeds of fraud create an exception to Florida's homestead exemption law, Rudy knows where he'll be living for the next 63 months, the same might not be true of his wife and kids. I'm a little less certain about the restitution on the dinar sales, I'd love to know how that number was computed.

    I knew Rudy had health issues, I'm sorry to hear Brad does as well. Either way I can't imagine it's going to be a very happy new year for the three of them. And they have it coming.

    So your prophets of finance have fallen on their collective proverbial face, and you hear muffled voices calling: Welcome to the human race.
    You made a killing dealing real estate at NASA selling cemetery plots in outer space til some falling coffins crashed upon your doorstep: Welcome to the human race.

    Open up your heart...

    I somehow overlooked this:

    Fla. man convicted in Iraqi currency scheme dies


    Rudolph Coenen conspired with 2 Toledo-area businessmen


    Published: Friday, 4/24/2015

    AYER, Mass. — A Florida man who conspired with two Toledo-area businessmen to sell Iraqi currency as a sure-thing investment died this week in a federal prison hospital.


    Rudolph Coenen, 50, of Jacksonville died Monday at Federal Medical Center, Devens, in Massachusetts where he had been a patient inmate since January, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons said today.
    The rest of this short article is available on the Toledo Blade website.

    Rudy Coenen was a habitual lair and con artist but my condolences go out to his friends and family.
