Recognizing a "billion-dollar opportunity", in early 2009 a bunch of Texas attorneys hatched some of the most diabolical con jobs in U.S. background. utilizing a "legal process" provided to them through financially-desperate monetary advisors, this ancient 'grand robbery' started with the U.S. Marshal's dramatic seizure of the Stanford monetary team workplaces in Houston, Texas.
The 'breaking information' tale broadcast live to tell the tale CNN...billionaire financier Robert Allen Stanford, accused of operating an immense fraud from his offshore, Stanford overseas financial institution, and during his U. S. dependent broker-dealer, Stanford team corporation - a multi-billion buck "Ponzi scheme".
It was once all a Texas-sized lie.
With genuine trial transcripts and different documentation, Brutal Takeover exposes the true Stanford tale - how and not using a unmarried purchaser loss or criticism, and with none valid authority, legal professionals on the U.S. Securities and trade fee and the U.S. division of Justice joined forces to fabricate and prosecute an imaginary case of "securities fraud". A headline-grabbing case that might serve to salvage the Madoff-damaged careers on the SEC, enable enormous quantities of Texas attorneys in inner most perform to siphon billions from the Stanford resources, be supported via the admittedly "selective and incomplete" findings and "Declarations" of a unmarried accountant with an unlicensed CPA enterprise, and...immediately increase an indubitably corrupt DOJ prosecutor (Gregg Costa) to a pass judgement on within the 5th Circuit courtroom of Appeals.
On March 6, 2012, after an severe propagandizing crusade vilifying him as a "Ponzi schemer", a failed test on his lifestyles, and maybe the main outrageously corrupt trial in smooth U.S. heritage, Robert Allen Stanford was once convicted of this absolutely synthetic fraud and sentenced through a federal pass judgement on to a spectacular one hundred ten years in felony. just like the jurors who sat via his trial and have been (strategically) swayed through the pictures of his yacht, inner most planes and sprawling Caribbean property, for the prior seven years Stanford's U.S. and overseas consumers had believed strongly within the government's allegations opposed to him. yet no longer anymore.
Written contained in the greatest defense legal the place Stanford has been held due to the fact that his conviction, Brutal Takeover finds a deception of epic share - an wonderful conspiracy to snatch his worldwide businesses and resources, and use his sensationalized arrest to redeem the reputations broken via the Madoff scandal...and make all of it seem like righteous, American justice.
"A really outstanding tale written in a frank, entire and totally soaking up kind, with such a lot of layers and encompassing monumentally epic topics. A plethora of key questions raised in a pertinent and very hard-
hitting fashion." - British Broadcasting corporation (BBC)
