Investment Fraud Attorneys at Meyer Wilson Receiving Calls From Victims in Madison Timber Alleged Ponzi Scheme

SEC Uncovers $85 Million Ponzi Scheme in Madison Timber Properties

Last month, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil lawsuit against Madison Timber Properties LLC, and its owner, alleging that the $85 million operation was nothing more than a Ponzi scheme.

According to public records as well as the investigation of the Meyer Wilson law firm, Investors were told that

their money would be used by Madison Timber Properties to acquire timber-harvesting rights from various land owners on behalf of investors. The company would allegedly later harvest the timber and pay investors with the profits.

In reality, earlier investors were allegedly paid with funds obtained by newer investors, and investor funds were used to pay the personal expenses of Arthur Lamar Adams, the owner of Madison Timber Properties.

Investors were generally told that

they would receive an annual return of 12%-15%, which was to be paid over the course of the year. At the end of the year, investors could either have their principle returned or roll their money over into a new investment.

It is alleged that at least $85 million was raised through the sale of these unregistered securities to approximately 150 investors.
