By Robert Brame

an international empire of monetary providers businesses. Billions of greenbacks in resources and deposits. The discounts and livelihoods of tens of hundreds of thousands of consumers and staff in nations around the globe - long gone within the blink of an eye.

Recognizing a "billion-dollar opportunity", in early 2009 a gaggle of Texas attorneys hatched probably the most diabolical con jobs in U.S. heritage. utilising a "legal technique" provided to them via financially-desperate monetary advisors, this historical 'grand robbery' started with the U.S. Marshal's dramatic seizure of the Stanford monetary crew places of work in Houston, Texas.
The 'breaking information' tale broadcast survive CNN...billionaire financier Robert Allen Stanford, accused of working an enormous fraud from his offshore, Stanford overseas financial institution, and during his U. S. dependent broker-dealer, Stanford team corporation - a multi-billion greenback "Ponzi scheme".

It used to be all a Texas-sized lie.

With genuine trial transcripts and different documentation, Brutal Takeover exposes the genuine Stanford tale - how with no unmarried patron loss or criticism, and with none valid authority, legal professionals on the U.S. Securities and alternate fee and the U.S. division of Justice joined forces to fabricate and prosecute an imaginary case of "securities fraud". A headline-grabbing case that might serve to salvage the Madoff-damaged careers on the SEC, enable 1000's of Texas legal professionals in inner most perform to siphon billions from the Stanford resources, be supported via the admittedly "selective and incomplete" findings and "Declarations" of a unmarried accountant with an unlicensed CPA company, and...immediately increase an surely corrupt DOJ prosecutor (Gregg Costa) to a pass judgement on within the 5th Circuit courtroom of Appeals.

On March 6, 2012, after an extreme propagandizing crusade vilifying him as a "Ponzi schemer", a failed test on his lifestyles, and maybe the main outrageously corrupt trial in smooth U.S. historical past, Robert Allen Stanford used to be convicted of this totally synthetic fraud and sentenced by way of a federal pass judgement on to a brilliant one hundred ten years in criminal. just like the jurors who sat via his trial and have been (strategically) swayed by means of the images of his yacht, deepest planes and sprawling Caribbean property, for the earlier seven years Stanford's U.S. and foreign consumers had believed strongly within the government's allegations opposed to him. yet now not anymore.

Written contained in the greatest protection criminal the place Stanford has been held because his conviction, Brutal Takeover unearths a deception of epic share - an awesome conspiracy to snatch his international businesses and resources, and use his sensationalized arrest to redeem the reputations broken by means of the Madoff scandal...and make all of it appear like righteous, American justice.

"A really amazing tale written in a frank, finished and completely soaking up kind, with such a lot of layers and encompassing monumentally epic subject matters. A plethora of key questions raised in a pertinent and very hard-
hitting fashion." - British Broadcasting corporation (BBC)
