The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced on October 24, 2014, that Judge Lee H Rosenthal of the US District Court for the Southern District of Texas entered a default judgment and permanent injunction against Financial Robotics, Inc. ordering payment of more that $3 million in penalties and restitution.
The order finds that Financial Robotics and its controlling person Mark E. Rice operated a fraudulent scheme that solicited $1.7 million from an individual to trade leveraged off-exchange foreign currency contracts. The order says they told the victim the investment was risk free, insured against loss and that principal was guaranteed. Much of the customer funds were used to pay Rice’s personal and business expenses.
