Ethanol Products Group Loan Scam
Ethanol Products Group LLC (EPG) another Altus OK bank subsidiary's bogus tax credit claim shows yet another way bogus tax credits are laundered (monetized) to disguise as bonuses paid to coconspirators who were allowed to keep.
One tax credit case not charged as a crime, while a related crime that left the FDIC holding the bag was charged. FDIC and DOJ ignored, Ethanol Products Group, a $2 million fraudulent investment claim was one of nine of Affinity Ventures 2006 counterfeit tax credit claims totaling $72 million.
Summary: Case example of multiple scams. One $2 million fake loan.
- October 2006 among other false investment claims Doughty and Anderson created $600,000 counterfeit 2006 tax credits by claiming the $2 million was invested in EPG in 2006. 2009 OTC swapped the $600,000 counterfeit 2006 tax credits $600,000 gross production tax refunds.
- Instead of investing in 2006, the fake $600,000 was moved from the Altus OK bank and deposited at Nateel (2) a Wall Street firm.
- Jan 2008 Quartz Mountain Aerospace (QMA) ($221 million claimed 2006 investment) was broke and the $2 million was withdrawn from Nateel and brought back to the Altus bank. Doughty and Anderson charged $100,000 handling fees.
- 2009 the Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) swapped Affinity Ventures $600,000 counterfeit 2006 tax credits $600,000 gross production tax refunds.
Ethanol Products Group LLC (EPG) formed in October 2006 in Oklahoma is 50% owned by GMI (controlled by Fred Don Anderson) and KSS Investment Consulting LLC (controlled by Paul Harold Doughty), and 50% owned by South Dakota Ethanol Projects Group LLC (SDEPG), and managed by Fred Don Anderson. Ethanol Products Group LLC (EPG) is listed as a subsidiary of First State Bank Altus OK bank holding company.
(1) October 2006 was the deadline for investing money for 2006 tax credit claims that had been previously approved.
2006 Affinity Ventures Capital Company, LLC, claimed FSB Development Capital, LLC, invested $2 million in Affinity Ventures Capital Company, LLC, who claimed to have invested in Ethanol Products Group and took $600K tax credits. $600K went to a profit sharing and bonus pool.
Jan 2008 Doughty & Anderson withdrew the $2 million deposit from Nateel Energy (3), charged the bank another $100,000 handling fee that went to the profit sharing and bonus pool.
Bonus pool was shared by Doughty, Anderson and other coconspirators, some used by the DOJ as witnessed the cover-up trial. All were allowed to keep their bonuses.
