MIAMI - The US prosecutor in Florida has charged 37-year-old Evan Daniel Tromp with wire fraud between 2017 and 2022. Evan, a Curaçao native, is the son of the former president of the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten and was a 'ghost employee' at Ennia Investments and Holding from 2010 to 2017. He is also the director of Quanta Capital B.V. and has other involvements with various businesses.
Evan is accused of operating a Ponzi scheme through his various companies: Quanta Capital B.V., Operational and Financial Advisory, LLC, and Quanta Nominee, LLC. He promised investors high returns by investing their money in cryptocurrency mining and trading with virtually no risk.
Evan used new investors' money to pay off existing investors and for personal expenses. He had complete control over the bank accounts of these companies and made fraudulent and false use of investor funds. Multiple international wire transactions to his bank accounts were also traced as part of his fraudulent activities.
Upon conviction in Florida, Evan would be required to forfeit all properties obtained from the proceeds of this fraud to the US government.
The indictment provides a detailed list of false promises and statements Evan made to investors, as well as several specific cases of wire transactions used to facilitate the Ponzi scheme.
