The BC Securities Commission is doing what they can to ensure a notary public who carried out a hundred million dollar lie can’t do it again…
A BC Securities Commission panel has found Rashida Samji guilty bilking at least two hundred investors out of their money for a winery project that never existed.
Senior Litigator for the BC Securities Commission, Joyce Johner, says this is a unique case
“This is a very large Ponzi scheme. I mean, it’s one of the largest I’ve seen in my time here. Not only was it large, but it just continued on for such a very, very long time.”
Johner says Samji managed to steal from people for nearly ten years because she convinced them so thoroughly they could trust her.
She says sanctions and fines will be set at a later date.
