Former ENNIA Employee Evan Tromp Faces Wire Fraud Charges in U.S. Court
Miami, Florida – Evan Tromp, the son of former Central Bank of Curacao & St. Maarten director Emsley Tromp and a former employee of ENNIA Investments & Holding, is facing wire fraud charges in a U.S. court. The charges stem from his alleged involvement in a fraudulent scheme spanning from 2017 to 2022.
The charges allege that Evan Tromp was involved in a scheme to defraud investors through his companies, including Quanta Capital B.V., Operational and Financial Advisory, LLC, and Quanta Nominee, LLC. Tromp, who resided in the Southern District of Florida, was the Managing Director of Quanta Capital B.V. and had significant roles in the other entities.
Cryptocurrency and False Representations
Tromp is accused of soliciting investors to invest in various opportunities, including Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, and cryptocurrency mining services and trading. He allegedly made false and fraudulent statements to investors regarding the use of their funds, promising that their investments would be used to purchase cryptocurrency mining equipment and generate high returns with little risk.
Ponzi Scheme Allegations
According to the charges, Evan Tromp operated his business as a Ponzi scheme, using funds from new investors to pay off obligations to existing investors. This model allowed him to conceal the fraudulent nature of the scheme and maintain the appearance of profitability.
Wire Fraud Charges
The wire fraud charges stem from Tromp's use of interstate wire communications to further his fraudulent scheme. Investors were instructed to transfer funds electronically to accounts controlled by Tromp in the Southern District of Florida.
In addition to the wire fraud charges, the government is seeking criminal forfeiture of property derived from proceeds traceable to the alleged violations.
If convicted, Evan Tromp faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years for each wire fraud count. He may also be subject to fines, supervised release, and other penalties.
