BULLETIN: (Updated 12:27 p.m. EDT U.S.A.) A TelexFree-related police raid coordinated by prosecutors in the Dominican Republic has resulted in the seizure of cash, at least two weapons and computer (tablets) and phone equipment (smart phones), the Public Ministry says in a statement in Spanish.

The weapons were identified as a pistol and a shotgun.

Alleged TelexFree promoter Carlos Manuel Vanterpool Severino has been labeled a fugitive, according to the statement.

Five TelexFree-related raids occurred in San Pedro de Macoris, according to the statement. The raids appear to have taken place last week.

The total amount of seized cash  was not immediately clear. A Google translation suggests it exceeded $10,000 U.S.

TelexFree is alleged in the United States to be a combined Ponzi- and pyramid scheme that gathered more than $1.2 billion.

  1. Telexzombies will most likely deflect this by saying it’s not one of their offices, but one of their promoters. With crime rate high in DR, I can see why the had guns to safe keep all the cash flowing in. lol

  2. Quick note. Many American baseball fans are apt to recognize the Dominican town of San Pedro de Macoris. Many major leaguers hail from there.

  3. I’ve heard of alleged rapist, alleged bank robber, but an alleged promoter?

  4. Soon, individual criminal charges might start happening in order to hold responsible those that started the scheme to begin with. Without anyone going to prison for the ponzi scheme there is no sense in cracking down on TelexFree. Otherwise, those responsible will simply disappear. Where is Wanzeler? Where is San Rodrigues? Where is Sloan, Carlos Costa (why is not charged? Cooperating with authorities? he was the cheerleader for all Brazilian promoters and a liar, saying that God ran the company. F*ktard!) Where are the key people right under San Rodrigues? WHo is hiding money for whom in this deal?
