On July 1, 2021, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York announced that Ross Baldwin of Precious Commodities, Inc. (PCI) and National Coin Broker, Inc. (NCB) has been criminally charged for an alleged fraud related to a precious metals leasing scheme involving millions of dollars. Silver Law Group filed a federal court case (link to complaint) in the Southern District of Florida on behalf of several victims of the alleged scheme. Two other people were criminally charged in connection to the silver lease program, and a parallel civil enforcement action was also filed by the Commodity Future Trading Commission (CFTC) against Baldwin, PCI, NCB, and others. Alleged Precious Commodities/National Coin Broker Silver Leasing Scheme The CFTC’s complaint alleges that from 2014 through 2019, PCI and NCB “engaged in a fraudulent and deceptive scheme to solicit and misappropriate at least $8 million in funds and silver from at least 60 investors in connection with a fraudulent silver leasing program, referred to as the “Silver Lease Program.” The Silver Lease Program promised investors guaranteed monthly payments in exchange for use of silver that investors purchased from NCB or already owned. Investors were told that they would receive about 4%-5% for the lease of their silver, which would purportedly be used to fulfill purchase orders and then be replaced.On July 1, 2021, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York announced that Ross Baldwin of Precious Commodities, Inc.

Silver Law Group represents investors with losses caused by fraud at Miami-area hedge funds.  Hedge funds are investment partnerships that are not as regulated or transparent as other types of investments. Hedge funds can invest in a wide variety of products that other investment vehicles cannot, which can provide very high returns in some cases. Investors may also suffer significant losses in hedge funds, and their minimal transparency can make it difficult for investors to evaluate them.

It’s been said that fraud is one of Florida’s biggest industries.

Silver Law Group is investigating Rekor Systems, Inc. (REKR) regarding potential claims for investors in the company to recover losses. The investigation concerns potential violations of the federal securities laws.  If you have losses from investing in Rekor Systems, Inc. (“REKR") contact Silver Law Group for a no-cost consultation at (800) 975-4345 or at ssilver@silverlaw.com.  The company’s largest revenue stream comes from a contract for their systems for tracking uninsured motorists. This UVED (uninsured vehicle enforcement diversion) partnership is with the state of Oklahoma. Rekor would identify drivers with their ALPR or “automated license plate readers,” and collect fees on behalf of the state.  Despite comments about winning similar contracts with New York, Florida, Texas, and numerous other states, these mandates did not pass, and no new contracts have been signed. Currently, Oklahoma is the only UVED partnership.  Two reports indicate that the ambitious figures for Oklahoma discussed by CEO Robert Berman were speculative, at best, and overstated by 96%. A report from Western Edge indicated that the company’s “potential revenue guidance” may be overstated by as much as 80%. Additionally, the Mariner Research Group published a report titled “REKR—Government documents to not support investor expectations.”Silver Law Group is investigating Rekor Systems, Inc.
