P.S. We have been advised by our Attorney that we should be 100% clear that we state that these men are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.
Three Toledo area men pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal charges that allege they were involved in a multi-million dollar scheme involving the sale of Iraqi currency.
Bradford L. Huebner, 65, of Ottawa Hills, Charles N. Emmenecker, 65, of Sylvania, and Michael L. Teadt, 66, of Maumee, appeared for arraignment before Magistrate Judge James Knepp II. All three men entered not guilty pleas through their attorneys.
The 83-count indictment issued Thursday also named Rudolph M. Coenen, 47, of Jacksonville, Fla. Mr. Coenen was not in court.
According to court documents, the men were charged for alleged involvement in the operation of a $24 million fraud scheme involving the sale of Iraqi dinar currency and two non-existent hedge funds. Each faces charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud. Mr. Huebner and Mr. Coenen are also charged with multiple counts of money laundering, and Mr. Huebner is charged with multiple counts of structuring and willful failure to file currency and transaction reports.
Steven Dettelbach, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, said that the defendants’ conduct resulted in a loss to investors of nearly $23.8 million from dinar sales and more than $700,000 from the sale of non-existent hedges funds.
“These defendants made false statements time and again to convince people to part with their savings and hard-earned cash,” Mr. Dettelbach said in a release. “The fact that one defendant falsely claimed he was wounded while fighting in Iraq is particularly egregious.”
According to the indictment, the four men began in August, 2010, a conspiracy to operate “BH Group” in Toledo and “Bayshore Capital Investments” in Jacksonville in order to defraud investors through investments in the Iraqi dinar currency and two non-existent hedge funds. The conspirators promoted the dinar and non-existent hedge funds through the dissemination of a series of material falsehoods conveyed primarily through weekly interstate conference calls and through the conspirators’ Web site, according to the indictment.
Attorney Richard Kerger, who represents Mr. Huebner, said today that his client’s business was “entirely lawful.” Saying that Mr. Huebner was a longtime businessman in the area, Mr. Kerger said any noncompliance with federal regulations was “unintentional.”
“I think it’s an unfortunate prosecution,” he said. “…I think at the end of the day, the charges will be found to be not substantiated.”
Mr. Emmenecker and Mr. Teadt were both granted release on a $250,000 signature bond, and ordered to surrender their passports and not travel outside the boundries of the court’s jurisdiction without prior approval.
A detention hearing for Mr. Huebner was set for 10:30 a.m. Friday. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joe Wilson said the prosecution believes he is a flight risk.

Comment: It’s a good start. Let’s hope something sticks. I don’t know the exact charges they face but there is probably nothing illegal about selling dinar. Nevertheless, I hope it puts a fright into the other clowns that are charging for their “super-secret” intel.

Comment: very good!! one group down, how many more to go? i think the us marshalls office needs to take a good look at EVERY dinar dealer and pumper invloved with iraqi dinars to ensure they are in 100% compliance. all these gurus calling for RV’s every week is getting real old should also be looked at with a fine tooth comb to ensure their wording on these conference calls isnt “suggestive” to consumers in dire straits spending all their money on dinars and not paying their mtg pymts etc…… waiting for an RV that could or could not happen.

Comment: This feels SO right! Now let’s see superdirtbagscammer “montana” get his! Talk about a creep who has taken innocent folks already struggling, for loads of money. He has a great income from all the hopefuls on this deal! I planted myself into his nest for about a year just to see what was going on and I’ll tell you it’s sick! Honestly hard for me to even imagine ANYONE could swallow his story. I guess money (or the hope for it) does goofy things to a mind. Hoep they get him and put his fugly mug on the news!

Comment: i am new to the dinar world of gurus. ido have some iqd. i have just become acustomed to the computer [i.e. internet] past 2 months. i have been to so many sights makes me dizzy then i found this one today. the news makes me feel very stupid! did i invest in something that is not there? no i did not buy from these scums.
[ Master Mason, don't feel stupid, and you can learn more about your Iraqi Dinar first on the Central Bank of Iraq's Website (www.CBI.iq) and you can also learn a tremendous amount of information and read daily news from on The IQD Team's site (www.TheIQDTeam.com) If you are physically holding on to your IQD Dinar, then you should have absolutely nothing to worry about. If you were unfortunate enough to send your money to them, and they were "holding" your IQD Dinar, then you may be out of luck! ~ Mr. IQD ]

Comment: Thank you for the posting in regards to the BH Group. I was one of many who listened every week like a school child. I did buy two set’s of dinar from them, as did a couple of my family and friends. Should we worry about any dealings info they have we did with them ?, ( we hold our dinar). One last question if I may, do you have a text message service or just e-mail. I did see the e-mail but not a text service. Thank you.
[ Rocketman, you can follow us on Twitter.com/MrIQD from our Twitter you can receive our Tweets and also send us Direct Messages via Twitter. We also will send out a "RV Tweet" as soon as we confirm from www.CBI.com that the IQD has significantly "revalued" in value! ]

Comment: What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. Come on people lets not persecute these men when we just dont know all the facts. A d do we really think we can trust our FBI @this time and im not sure even about our american leaders im sorry to say. [ Ky. girl - did you notice our "disclaimer" at the top of the page, next to our signature? Of course they are "innocent until proven guilty" that is the law - but, a Grand Jury passed down an Indictment - that leads a reasonable person to believe where there is "smoke" there is "fire"!!! Ky. girl, you can keep buying from BH Group if you feel confident - that is up to you! But we bet they won't be selling much of anything but cigarettes soon! ~ Mr. IQD ]
