United States v. Rachael Winslow et al

Case Status Information

United States v. Rachael Winslow et al

The United States alleges that from at least as early as March 2009 through in or about December 2013, the defendants were involved with others in a conspiracy to commit money laundering. Victim-investors were convinced through high-pressure sales techniques, sophisticated mass-marketing, and misrepresentations into believing they were investing in regulated securities, financial products, stocks, and other investments. Some victim-investors sent additional funds for a purported investment opportunity, or related fees and expenses, in order to obtain the return or profit that was initially promised. Victim-investors were instructed to wire transfer funds to various shell companies—fictitious corporate entities that existed only on paper and had no legitimate employees, physical presence, or business functions—and accounts at financial institutions in the Middle District of Florida and elsewhere. These entities included: First Assured Contact LLC, Guardian Holdings Group LLC, Connect Progress LLC, Guardian Partners LLC, Buy and Sell Real Estate Inc., Buy and Sell Realty and Investment LLC, and Clear View Group LLC.
