 I have now identified yet another scammer in the Ottoman Group: Isaac Ofori, who claims to be working with contracts and compliance within the group. Mr. Ofori operates an international fraud scheme conducting 419 investment scams through upfront fees and retainers for investments which never pan out.

Ofori is also scamming investors, who believe they invest in sound business opportunities, only to find their funds disappear, and that their banks close their accounts due to the dealings with this illegal enterprise.

This crime is in breach of regulations surrounding wire fraud, attorney law fraud and federal securities fraud. In dialogue with the National Futures Association, CFTC and United States Attorney’s Office New York, a large number of companies and individuals have been victims of their fraud since their start two years ago.. [continued below]....


Direct and confirmed accomplices from the Ottoman Group are Dustin Collins, Stephanie Hillman, Jean Floch and Brent Purin.

If you are in contact with Isaac Ofori, be advised his association with the Ottoman Group is under investigation with strong evidence of conducting illegal business activities in the magnitude of millions of dollars. All Tier 1 financial institutions have been warned of their activities.

It is your responsibility to conduct background checks when conducting business nationally and internationally. A search in yahoo, bing, google or any of the keywords "scam ottoman group", "fraud dustin Collins" or "scam alert Stephanie Hillman" will reflect some extents of their publicly reported fraud.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Not All Are Guilty

AUTHOR: Isaac Ofori - ()

Dear Lisa Craydon,

I am Isaac Ofori. I understand why the report was written about myself and the company i USED to work for. It is important that you understand a few things. I was never a trader, broker, accountant, advisor or any other position of the same category as the ones mentioned. I began working at the firm only as an Intern (with the title Contract Compliance Manager) in the begining and then became the front Desk Admin. I worked there for a total of 8 months. I left the company and ceased any affiliation with the Company and all others involved in the company after realizing all the shady things that were occurring. I began receiving more and more complaints about services not being provided after payment of fees (which i never received as compensation) so on and so forth.

At first i was reassured by my higher ups that all was fine and not to worry. However, i began to receive more emails again after a small break. It was then that i decided to leave the company and no longer affiliate myself with them as i no longer felt comfortable working there. I write this rebuttal only because we do not know each other and you do not know the full scope of everyones situation who may have gotten their names and reputation destroyed. I was a innocent recent college grad who was promised an opportunity at receiving training and experience needed to become a Financial Advisor. Only to end up getting decieved, exploited and left with a mangled reputation by individuals such as yourself that may have been victims of the actions of the company that i was working for.

I kindly ask that you please consider the removal of my name in the report as my reputation and life has been ruined badly enough. It has become impossible to find employment and credibility, all due to simply chasing my dreams of working in the Finance world but getting taken advantage of early in the statges. I am not a Scammer, rather someone who got scammed. Only difference is Other got scammed from the outside, i got scammed from the inside. I was simply looking for a company that would provide training for the Securities Licenses exams, and this one offered and i took it. I had no knowledge of what was to come.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to hear the entire story.


Thank You

Isaac O.
