Did Lawrence Ford Cause You Investment Losses?
Lawrence Ford of Daytona Florida is alleged to have been a part of a Ponzi scheme that took more than $21 million from more than 200 investors. Mr. Ford was president and Chief Financial Officer of Heritage Funding Group and used his status to acquire the trust of many investors. Mr. Ford and the defendants allegedly told investors that their funds would be used to invest in Real Estate Fund and Heritage Funding Group to invest in real estate and secured car loans. For a time, they made those investments for clients. However, when the company didn’t have enough funds due to the excess commission they agreed to pay the salesmen (22% instead of the 10% they told investors) they allegedly resorted to a Ponzi scheme to pay off older investors. Later, instead of investing clients’ monies, Mr. Ford allegedly used the funds on a lavish lifestyle and to repay older investors in a classic Ponzi scheme. Mr. Ford and the defendants allegedly lied to investors about their activities and hid the substantial commissions they received. In agreement with the SEC, Mr. Ford was ordered to disgorge $200,000 in alleged ill-gotten funds. Mr. Ford was also ordered to pay prejudgment interest in the amount of $38,917 and a civil penalty of $6500 for a total of $245,417 to be paid to the court.
