Six months after B.C.’s most notorious Ponzi scheme fraudster known as the ‘Ponzi Queen’ was sentenced, a new claim has been filed in the Rashida Samji saga.
Her bankruptcy trustee has filed a civil claim against a person they describe as Samji’s “romantic partner” identified in the claim as Rajesh Gajjar.
According to the claim, the Ponzi scheme enriched Gajjar by approximately $600,000.
Samji targeted more than 200 investors in the $100-million Ponzi scheme between 2003 and 2012, the largest in B.C. history.
She was sentenced to six years jail, with the BC Securities Commission having already ordered her to pay $33 million in fines and $11 million in compensation.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
