VANCOUVER, Sept. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - A British Columbia Securities Commission panel has found that a man made false statements and traded securities illegally.
The panel found that Daveed Zarr (a.k.a. Asi Lalky) made misrepresentations and breached securities laws regarding registration and prospectus requirements when he offered shares in his company, Zarr Energy Corporation, via a website he created, and through numerous Craigslist and other online postings. Zarr has never been registered in any capacity in B.C., and Zarr Energy has never filed a prospectus.
In December 2011, Zarr posted an online classified advertisement promoting the investment in the Financial Services section of Vancouver's Craigslist website. Zarr stated that investors would earn a 50% annual return if they agreed to open a foreign exchange trading account containing $250,000 and give Zarr trading authority over the account.
In response to an email inquiry from a commission investigator posing as an investor, Zarr represented that he was a "professional currency trader" and reiterated that investors would earn a 50% annual return. The panel found that both of these statements were false or misleading.
On Zarr's claims that he was a professional currency trader, the panel wrote, "Zarr admitted in his interview that he is not, and never has been, a professional currency trader. He also acknowledged that he is no good at it."
The panel directed the parties to make submissions on sanctions according to the schedule set out in the findings.
