Quote :
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission sued a Florida-based precious metals firm and its owner, saying the two committed fraud when they accepted more than $800,000 from about nine U.S. customers and misappropriated nearly all the money, the CFTC said late Monday.

The agency said it filed a civil injunctive enforcement action in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on Monday against Global Precious Metals Trading Company, LLC of Coral Gables, Florida, and its owner Michael Ghaemi, who resides in Miami, Fla.

Typical, they go after the peanuts ($800,000) and ignore the big guys (John Corizine, billions and billions of dollars).
