Davis allegedly Implemented Shell Corporations to Siphon Approximately $11 Million of BRS Investors’ Funds for His Personal Benefit; Davis, in an Alleged Effort to Legitimize Said Shell Companies, Purportedly Submitted Dozens of False Invoices Claiming the Companies Provided Services to BRS
Davis, from at least March of 2010, allegedly implemented shell corporations that he purportedly controlled to siphon approximately $11 million ($7.8 million during the relevant period of January 2013 and July 2015) of BRS investors’ funds for his own personal use, according to the aforementioned SEC Complaint under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.
Davis, to allegedly make the payments to the shell companies look legitimate, submitted, or caused to be submitted, to BRS dozens of invoices falsely claiming that these shell companies provided services to BRS, the Complaint notes.
For example, Davis also allegedly caused BRS to send an extra $679,000 to an antiques broker to pay for Davis’s personal purchases of ancient jewelry, gold, and other artifacts, including gold pendants, gold crosses, pearl bracelets, garnet pendants, and gold rings, the Complaint states.
Davis, purportedly attempting to make said payments appear legitimate, allegedly created a phony entity called “LS Farrow” and on at least three occasions submitted, or caused to be submitted, invoices to BRS that falsely claimed “LS Farrow” operated from Victoria, Australia and provided “financial services” to the company, the Complaint reports.
In truth, however, no such entity exists and no such services were ever provided, and the Victoria, Australia address Davis used on the invoices was actually the address for a cemetery in Australia where a person named LS Farrow is interred, the Complaint notes.
BRS and Davis, by allegedly engaging in the fraudulent and deceptive conduct described in the SEC Complaint, allegedly violated provisions of the federal securities laws, the Complaint states.
