The United States Attorney out of the Southern District of Florida has accused Sanjay Singh of allegedly running a Ponzi scheme. The 43-year-old Coral Springs man reported using his over-the-road trucking company, Royal Bengal Logistics, Inc., to orchestrate the $100 million investment fraud.
Singh has been indicted on multiple charges, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, misappropriation, and engaging in transactions with unlawful proceeds. If convicted on all counts, the U.S. Attorney’s office notes that he could face up to 150 years in prison.
Legal filings indicate that Singh, along with co-conspirators, claimed that Royal Bengal was a successful trucking business when in reality, the company was losing money. In order to dupe investors into believing the business was thriving, Singh (with his co-conspirators) allegedly made material misrepresentations and omissions about the company.
For instance, Singh routinely failed to inform investors about the potential risk involved with investing in Royal Bengal. Additionally, he and his co-conspirators failed to disclose the true profitability of the company’s trucking operations or even how the company would pay investors or use investor funds. It is believed that investors were defrauded out of over $100 million. Unbeknownst to investors, Royal Bengal was reportedly using funds raised by new investors to pay existing investors.
The indictment further alleges that Singh not only defrauded investors out of millions of dollars but that he also misused the money for personal gain. According to federal prosecutors, Singh used the funds received from investors to “renovate his home, make mortgage payments, pay for personal expenses, and trade stocks on margin.” Aggrieved investors are asked to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to provide information.
