There is disturbing news out of New York which has made many investors sit up and take notice. According to the reports, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently fined a forex broker firm with $20 million due to the fraudulent activity of its sole director, Shimla Yoshai. Mr. Shimla Yoshai was the sole director of the brokerage firm called Interbank Debit and Brokerdealer that worked on behalf of banks who were providing credit facilities to some currency speculators. These forex traders deliberately deceived the banks that they were purchasing large blocks of currencies from these banks in order to make profits. One can only imagine the number of jobs this would have destroyed had it been exposed and acted upon by the authorities.
The government discovered that Mr. Shimla Yoshai falsified information in his applications for tax benefits, as well as misrepresentations of his firm’s trading activities to the forex broker dealers. He will pay a fine of 20 million dollars. This represents the largest fine ever imposed by the Internal Revenue Service on a single individual for willfully making false representations in an attempt to secure tax benefits. The tax penalties reflect the importance of managing the forex capital markets properly. The courts are likely to uphold the decision, as this was a case where the taxpayers had suffered a significant loss and the penalties were an important component of that loss.
The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York has brought the case against Shimla Yoshai. The complaint names Shimla Yoshai, along with six other individuals, including the founder of the Forex Trading Platform Company. The complaint is also lodged against the Bank of India, which is accused of failing to prevent the currency trading platforms from being used by terrorists in Iran to execute terrorist attacks. The complaint seeks damages for injuries to life, health, and property, caused by defendants’ negligence and failures to prevent the use of the currency trading platforms. The court is expected to issue a ruling in the near future.
