SEC Enforcement Proceedings:

Anthony John Johnson Sanctioned:

The Securities and Exchange Commission recently announced that Anthony John Johnson (Johnson) has been barred from the securities industry. The sanction was ordered in an administrative proceeding before an administrative law judge, following an August 2011 conviction for conspiracy to commit securities, mail, and wire fraud and an August 2012 conviction for mail fraud. Some of his wrongdoing occurred between March 2002 and March 2003, while associated with Park Capital Securities, LLC, where he engaged in manipulative trading and where brokers under his direction engaged in misrepresentations and material omissions to induce customers to purchase and refrain from selling certain stock. From approximately August 2010 to April 2011, Johnson operated a Ponzi scheme while associated with RAHFCO Management Group LLC, an unregistered investment adviser.
