Did Frank Vennes Cause You Investment Losses?

Frank E. Vennes of Stuart Florida and two other defendants were charged with fraud and money laundering. Mr. Vennes was a business associate of Thomas Petters (the CEO who committed a $3.65 billion Ponzi scheme and the third largest hedge fund fraud case in U.S. history) who owned and operated Petters Company Inc. (PCI). The defendants misrepresented that funds invested in promissory notes would be used to finance the purchase of electronics and other consumer merchandise to be sold to retailers for a profit. However, no merchandise was ever bought or sold and Mr. Petters diverted hundreds of millions of dollars for his personal use. According to the indictment, Mr. Vennes directed two other defendants to defraud investors in four Palm Beach hedge funds. Later, as PCI notes were on the verge of default, Mr. Vennes directed the defendants to engage in a scheme to swap more than $1 billion in PCI notes to give the appearance PCI could repay the notes held by the Palm Beach funds. Mr. Vennes received $60 million in commission based on Palm Beach investments in PCI but was later sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for lying to investors.
