According to a CFTC press release, “a federal court in Charlotte, N.C., entered an emergency order freezing assets held by defendants Toby D. Hunter of Waxhaw, N.C., and his companies, Prestige Capital Advisors, LLC (Prestige) and D2W Capital Management, LLC (D2W) of Charlotte, N.C.”
The move to freeze the assets and to pursue Mr. Hunter, Prestige Capital Advisors, and D2W Management in federal court arose from a civil complaint filed recently in a U.S. District Court near Charlotte. The CFTC release says that the “complaint alleges that, since April 2008, Hunter, Prestige, and D2W fraudulently solicited and accepted funds from the general public to trade pooled investments in commodity futures, options on commodity futures and managed forex accounts. As a result of defendants’ allegedly fraudulent solicitation, at least six individuals invested $4.65 million with the Prestige Multi-Strategy Fund, LP, a pool established by Hunter and Prestige. In addition, the defendants solicited and received $2.36 million in connection with forex trading accounts managed by D2W. Defendants also allegedly misrepresented the profitability of their trading programs by posting false purported returns on a website called BarclayHedge. The complaint further alleges that defendants misappropriated some of the Prestige investors’ funds and issued false account statements to investors in both schemes in order to perpetuate defendants’ fraud.”
