THE FRAUDULENT SCHEME
Ace Payday holds it self down as being a start-up, Southern Florida business when you look at the company of supplying consumers with "retail pay day loan" and "check cashing" services. Purportedly to boost money to invest in these operations, since at the least August 2001 through March 2002, Ace Payday, Ace Management, Ace Management Inc., and Bianco were providing and attempting to sell unregistered devices of Ace Payday via a purported placement that is private. Through the providing, defendants have now been trying to sell 100 devices of Ace Payday at a purchase cost of $10,000 per device to improve a complete of $1 million. The defendants have solicited investors through the ISOs, who're telemarketers that cold-call unsophisticated investors and so are perhaps maybe maybe not registered as broker-dealers utilizing the Commission. Through the offering, defendants have actually raised at the very least $800,000 from at the least 30 investors.
