Henry Thomas Hammond of Ponte Vedra Beach Florida was indicted for $6.2 million in fraud schemes. Mr. Hammond was alleged to have constructed three schemes (Blackberry Development, Wire Fraud, and False Seal) that yielded over $6,000,000. Mr. Hammond allegedly promised investors an exorbitant rate of return on their investment, when in fact those investments were used for Mr. Hammond’s personal expenses. The first alleged scheme involved the Blackberry commercial development in Liberty, Missouri. Mr. Hammond, as the general contractor, was responsible for paying the subcontractors but instead manipulated the process and received the funds himself. He received approximately $1.2 million which he used on vacations and a luxurious lifestyle. The second scheme occurred during a 27 month period when Mr. Hammond is alleged to have used wire fraud schemes to pay for his personal expenses of over $5 million, including a one million dollar lake house and over $300,000 on a hunting excursion. The third scheme was a bankruptcy fraud. Mr. Hammond is also alleged to have fraudulently used the Department of Justice Seal and “U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Legislative Affairs” letterhead to convince investors to turn over control of their funds. The federal indictment charged Mr. Hammond with two counts of bank fraud, four counts of wire fraud, one count of bankruptcy fraud, four counts of money laundering, and one count of using the seal of the Department of Justice on a fraudulent letter.
