FBI: New alleged investment scheme could top $1B

Scott Rothstein is suspected of misappropriating millions through a legal settlement investment scam.

                                               

According to the Associated Press Investigators say the alleged fraud scheme run by a prominent South Florida lawyer is likely to exceed $1 billion and involve thousands of investors.  Miami FBI chief John Gilles said Thursday morning that investigators want investors with attorney Scott Rothstein to come forward. Rothstein is suspected of misappropriating millions through a legal settlement investment scam. No criminal charges have been filed yet, but in a civil complaint, prosecutors accused Rothstein of concocting a Ponzi scheme that lured millions from investors. Gilles said the investigation is likely to take weeks or longer.
