Villalba Sentenced to Jail Today; Law Firm Continues Investigation

Ohio-based investment advisor, Enrique F. Villalba, Jr., was sentenced to jail today by a federal judge in Cleveland. Mr. Villalba solicited investors in several states through his investment advisory business, Money Market Alternative L.P., by touting an investment strategy that he professed to be conservative and low risk and that investors would realize an eight to twelve percent return while investing conservatively. Instead, Mr. Villalba invested predominately in commodity futures contracts and lost nearly all of this clients' money. The Ohio-based Meyer Wilson LPA is continuing its investigation into the potential liability of third party financial institutions involved in Mr. Villalba's investment scheme. As part of the firm's investigation, the firm's principal, Attorney David P. Meyer, interviewed Mr. Villalba prior to his criminal sentencing for several hours to learn first-hand how he operated his scheme. Mr. Meyer also reviewed trading confirmations and account statements, and examined Mr. Villalba's investment trading strategy in depth. For that past two years, Meyer & Associates has been pursuing a lawsuit against a third party brokerage firm on behalf of a group of individual investors in a separate case with very similar facts. If you, or someone you care about, invested with Mr. Villalba and you would like to discuss how our law firm may be able to help pursue a potential claim to recover losses against the third party financial institutions involved in Mr. Villalba's investment scheme, please contact Attorney David P. Meyer by calling us toll-free, or via email at dmeyer@dmlaws.com.
