CM Capital Management LLC and Edward Lee Moody Charged by SEC – Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
Securities and Exchange Commission Charges CM Capital Management, LLC and Edward Lee Moody
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced charges against a Virginia investment adviser firm and its sole owner, for operating a nearly $5 million Ponzi scheme. The SEC also obtained an order freezing asset in more than 30 brokerage and bank accounts controlled by the defendants.
According to the SEC’s complaint, Edward Lee Moody and his wholly-owned investment adviser firm CM Capital Management, LLC, has operated a Ponzi scheme and defrauded dozens of investors. The SEC alleges that Moody obtained $4.95 million from approximately 60 individuals and entities for investment purposes. The SEC alleges that Moody represented his firm as a successful money management company that profitably invested client funds in securities. In order to maintain this illusion, the SEC alleges that Moody and CM Capital made periodic repayments to investors and sent fictitious monthly account statements that purported to show that clients had earned profitable returns on their securities investments. The SEC alleges that, in reality, Moody invested none of the $4.95 million, but instead, he used the investor funds to pay off earlier investors, to fund his own speculative trading, and for personal expenses. Among other expenses, the SEC alleges that Moody used investor funds to buy a house, a car, remodel his new home, travel, and cover his restaurant and bar tabs.
