BREAKING NEWS—Denver Based Corporation Charged By SEC With Alleged $55 Million Ponzi Scheme

On July 26, 2018, the SEC announced that it was unsealing fraud charges against a group of companies and their principal for allegedly perpetrating a $55 million ponzi scheme.  Daniel Rudden, a resident of Colorado, operated a group of companies named Financial Visions, LLC, Financial Visions West, LLC and Financial Visions West I, LLC.

From approximately 2001 through approximately July 2018, the Financial Visions Companies raised as much as $55 million from as many as 150 investors in multiple states through a promissory note offering.  The Financial Visions Companies paid annual interest rates of 12% on promissory notes by allegedly earning profits through “life insurance assignments.”  The SEC complaint alleges that since 2010-2011, Financial Visions used new investor funds to pay interest and redemptions to existing investors.

The SEC has frozen assets in an effort to maximize the recovery to defrauded investors.
