USA vs. Rubi

United States District Court, Southern California.

Project Description
A multi-entity, multi-national investigation of a pyramid scheme involving several hundred investors’ investments in fraudulent investment products.

Scope of Work
Douglas Wilson Companies, agent for Receiver, was tasked with collecting, liquidating and distributing assets to the investors. DWC completed a comprehensive forensic investigation to trace funds and assist individual investors in recovering their investment. DWC collected multiple bank, accounting and finance records from investors and defendants in order to recreate accurate records to reconcile funds. The project’s legal complexity required DWC to coordinate with several U.S. government agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and U.S. Customs, as well as several non-U.S. governments including the Philippines, England, and France. After completing the forensic investigation, DWC was able to collect and distribute recovered funds to investors.
