FBI Brings Securities Fraud Charges in $125 Million Medical Glove Scheme
According to the FBI,Wannakuwatte told investors that his company, International Manufacturing Group Inc., had contracts worth $100 million a year. In reality, the Company’s revenues were approximately $25,000 a year.
The FBI alleges that Wannakuwatte was running a Ponzi scheme, paying investors not with revenues from the government glove contracts but with money provided by other investors.
Last year, International Manufacturing and RelyAid Global Healthcare Inc. , were sued by business lender General Electric Capital Corp. The General Electric suit came after allegedly defaulting on a $4.6 million debt related to a latex glove factory RelyAid purportedly planned to build in Yuba County, California.
