GREENVILLE, S.C. - Earlier today, the Federal Grand Jury in Greenville, South Carolina returned an indictment as a result of the efforts of the Receiver’s office and continued investigations by the United States Attorney’s Office and the United States Secret Service with regard to those involved in a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Ronnie Gene Wilson and Atlantic Bullion and Coin, Inc.  Specifically, the Grand Jury indicted Ronnie Gene Wilson, his wife, Cassie Wilson, and his brother, Tim Wilson, concerning the hiding and concealment of assets from the government and the Receiver. The Receiver’s office has recovered over $400,000.00 in gold, silver, and cash from Cassie Wilson and Tim Wilson in the last six months. These assets were delivered to them by Ronnie Gene Wilson after his arrest in an effort to hide these assets from the Receiver. This indictment reflects the government and Receiver’s persistent efforts to recover assets for the purpose of paying back the victims of the Ponzi scheme.  This indictment will be followed by a number of lawsuits to be filed by the Receiver against those that profited from the Ronnie Gene Wilson Ponzi scheme.
