SEC charges Canadian man with fraud

first_img The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has brought fraud charges, and secured an emergency asset freeze order against a Canadian man who it says was behind a platform of microcap stock promotion websites. The SEC is alleging that John Babikian used AwesomePennyStocks.com and its related site, PennyStocksUniverse.com, to commit a form of securities fraud known as “scalping”, which involved touting a penny stock (America West Resources Inc.) via email, and immediately selling his own large position in the stock. The SEC says this generated ill-gotten gains of more than US$1.9 million. James Langton Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords FraudCompanies Securities and Exchange Commission Imposters among us, CSA warns Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe sayscenter_img DoJ launches task force to tackle Covid-19 fraud Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The allegations have not been proven. In the meantime, however, the SEC has secured an order from a federal court judge in New York, which freezes Babikian’s assets, temporarily restrains him from further similar misconduct, requires an accounting, prohibits document alteration or destruction, and expedites discovery. The SEC says that Babikian was actively attempting to liquidate his U.S. assets, which are held by various front companies, and to wire the proceeds offshore. According to the SEC’s complaint, Babikian, 26, used to live in Montreal, but left Canada in 2012 “in the wake of tax evasion charges by Canadian authorities”. It says that his current whereabouts are unknown, and that it’s believed that he holds passports issued by Lebanon, Nevis and Guatemala. “The enforcement division, including its Microcap Fraud Task Force, is intensely focused on the scourge of microcap fraud and is aggressively working to root out microcap fraudsters who make their living by preying on unwitting investors,” said Andrew Ceresney, director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. The SEC says its investigation is continuing, and it noted that Quebec’s Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and OTC Markets Group Inc. have provided assistance.last_img read more

Another $200 million for regional councils’ Works for Queensland projects

first_imgAnother $200 million for regional councils’ Works for Queensland projects JOINT STATEMENTRegional Queensland’s economic recovery will shift up a gear thanks to a $200 million investment into 65 regional councils, part of the Palaszczuk Government’s hugely successful Works for Queensland program. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the allocations to each of the 65 regional councils would continue a program that local mayors have praised.“We made a commitment to regional communities during the election that we would continue this fantastic program and we are living up to that commitment,” the Premier said.“The $200 million fourth round of Works for Queensland means that councils outside the South East corner have now been allocated $800 million dollars from the program, helping to create local employment opportunities and improve liveability in regional Queensland.“So far, more than 21,000 jobs have been created or supported in areas of the state where they are needed most.“That is a fantastic result with the State delivering for local businesses, local tradies and most importantly, local families.”Deputy Premier and Minister for Local Government Steven Miles said Works for Queensland has had a positive impact on communities throughout regional Queensland. “This further funding will help councils deliver roads and pathways, parks and playgrounds, all while creating local jobs,” Mr Miles said.“Previous rounds of Works for Queensland have delivered a diverse range of projects, from new netball courts and returfed football fields at the Fraser Coast Sports Precinct, to upgrades to Charles Maroney Park and Heatley Park in Townsville, and a new cycling and walking track near Lake Moondarra in Mount Isa.“I encourage councils to put forward projects for consideration that are shovel ready and can start delivering jobs for locals right now.“I’ve seen firsthand the impact some of these projects have had for their communities, I know that this fourth round will deliver even more.”Local Government Association of Queensland President and Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said Works for Queensland stands as a powerful example of what can be achieved when both levels of government work together to create jobs and improve local communities.“This program’s success comes from its targeted focus on funding projects that can be rolled out quickly to provide opportunities and improved facilities for local communities,” Mayor Jamieson said.“Councils have strongly supported the continuation of Works for Queensland and we welcome the release of this new round of the program at a time when job-creation has never been more important. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Queensland Government to maintain this program into the future.”Eligible projects range from roadworks to town beautification, parks and playground upgrades, renewable energy installations, tourism, water and safety.Project submissions close on 9 April. /Public Release.

This brings diverse skills and perspectives which is crucial as we all work together to find solutions.“We are particularly interested in applications from people with expertise in transport planning and public health.“This is because the transport sector contributes to approximately 60% of the ACT’s emissions, and we have also seen how climate change can vastly affect our community’s health, particularly through what our community experienced during the 2019-20 bushfire season.”You can find more information on the desired skills and details on how to apply on the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development website.

CU-Boulder Takes Steps To Improve Student Safety

first_imgThe University of Colorado at Boulder has taken several steps, many as part of long-term programs, to help ensure the safety and well-being of its students for the fall semester. In the past three years, approximately $1 million has been spent on safety improvements on campus including new emergency call boxes and lighting, according to Chief Jim Fadenrecht of the CU Police department. Currently, there are 31 freestanding call boxes located throughout the campus and 16 wall-mounted units in parking garages. Community service aides check the call boxes on a weekly basis to be sure they are working properly. “The response has been that the improvements made on campus have been effective and now there are things being done off campus as well,” Fadenrecht said. “New call boxes have been installed on the Hill, as well as some lighting improvements to help in areas that are heavily used by students off campus.” According to Fadenrecht, the future initiatives include a safety campaign to let people know what programs are out there. The CU-Boulder Police force will be staffed with a total of 40 full-time officers to respond to reports of criminal acts and emergencies. Depending on the time of day, there will be between three and nine officers patrolling the campus. In addition to the police patrols, NightRide/NightWalk provides students, faculty and staff with escorts around the CU campus and anywhere within the Boulder city limits upon request.  NightRide/NightWalk began in 1985 and has increased in both use and funding over the years. The program’s main operation is housed in the University Memorial Center. For students who want to improve their ability to defend themselves, self defense classes are offered at the student Recreation Center. According to Larry Schwarz, instruction program coordinator at the student Recreation Center, women’s self defense courses – and a variety of martial arts classes — will be held during both the fall and spring semesters.  For information on self defense classes call (303) 492-6880.
