Oct 5 U.S. authorities on Wednesday arrested
Tyrone Gilliams, charging that the commodities trader and
hip-hop promoter committed wire fraud.
The Philadelphia-based Gilliams, known for having promised
his investors superior returns, has been charged in a $4
million scheme that involved trading in U.S Treasury Strips,
according to the government's complaint.
Reuters profiled Gilliams in a Special Report in May that
detailed allegations lodged by an Ohio businessman who had
invested $4 million with Gilliams.[nN12284177]
