Securities and Exchange Commission Suspends Trading in the Securities of Six Issuers For Failure to Make Required Periodic Filings
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced the temporary suspension of trading in the securities of the following issuers, commencing at 9:30 a.m. EST on January 25, 2012 and terminating at 11:59 p.m. EST on February 7, 2012.
The Commission temporarily suspended trading in the securities of these six issuers due to a lack of current and accurate information about the companies because they have not filed periodic reports with the Commission in over two years. This order was entered pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act).
The Commission cautions brokers, dealers, shareholders and prospective purchasers that they should carefully consider the foregoing information along with all other currently available information and any information subsequently issued by these companies.
Brokers and dealers should be alert to the fact that, pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 15c2-11, at the termination of the trading suspensions, no quotation may be entered relating to the securities of the subject companies unless and until the broker or dealer has strictly complied with all of the provisions of the rule. If any broker or dealer is uncertain as to what is required by the rule, it should refrain from entering quotations relating to the securities of these companies that have been subject to a trading suspension until such time as it has familiarized itself with the rule and is certain that all of its provisions have been met. Any broker or dealer with questions regarding the rule should contact the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, DC at (202) 551-5720. If any broker or dealer enters any quotation which is in violation of the rule, the Commission will consider the need for prompt enforcement action.
If any broker, dealer or other person has any information which may relate to this matter, they should immediately communicate it to the Delinquent Filings Group of the Division of Enforcement at (202) 551-5466, or by e-mail at DelinquentFilings@sec.gov. (Rel. 34-66232)

On January 24, 2012, an Administrative Law Judge issued an Initial Decision as to Bio-Warm Corp. (n/k/a PHI Gold) in American Capital Partners Limited, Inc., Admin. Proc. 3-14534. The Initial Decision finds that the allegations in the Order Instituting Proceeding issued on September 7, 2011, are true. Bio-Warm Corp.

The Initial Decision revokes the registration of each class of Bio-Warm Corp. (n/k/a PHI Gold)’s registered securities. (Initial Decision No. 449; File No. 3-14534)
Commission Orders Hearings on Registration Suspension or Revocation Against Six Companies for Failure to Make Required Periodic Filings
In conjunction with this trading suspension, the Commission today also instituted public administrative proceedings to determine whether to revoke or suspend for a period not exceeding twelve months the registration of each class of the securities of six companies for failure to make required periodic filings with the Commission:
In the Order, the Division of Enforcement (Division) alleges that the respective Respondents are delinquent in their required periodic filings with the Commission.
In these proceedings, instituted pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12(j), a hearing will be scheduled before an Administrative Law Judge. At the hearing, the judge will hear evidence from the Division and the Respondents to determine whether the allegations of the Division contained in the Order, which the Division alleges constitute failures to comply with Exchange Act Section 13(a) and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13 thereunder, are true. The judge in the proceedings will then determine whether the registrations pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12 of each class of the securities of these Respondents should be revoked or suspended for a period not exceeding twelve months. The Commission ordered that the Administrative Law Judge in the proceedings issue an initial decision not later than 120 days from the date of service of the order instituting proceedings.

SEC Obtains Final Judgments Against Investment Adviser Carlo G. Chiaese and His Firm, C.G.C. Advisors, LLC, and his wife Micol Chiaese
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced today that it has obtained final judgments in its civil enforcement action against investment adviser, Carlo G. Chiaese, age 39 and resident of Springfield, New Jersey, his company, C.G.C. Advisors, LLC, and his wife, Micol Chiaese, a relief defendant.
The Commission’s Complaint, filed in October 2010 in the District of New Jersey, alleged that, since 2008, Chiaese and CGC had misappropriated at least approximately $2.4 million from six of their advisory clients. Micol Chiaese, an officer of CGC, benefited from this fraud by directly receiving at least $289,000 of clients’ funds. The Complaint charged Chiaese and CGC with violating Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Sections 206(1) and 206(2) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
On January 23, 2012, the Court entered a consent judgment against Chiaese for full injunctive relief and acknowledging that while he is liable for $2,464,518 in disgorgement, such disgorgement shall be deemed satisfied by the order of restitution in the criminal action. On November 3, 2011, the Court entered a consent judgment against CGC for full injunctive relief. And on December 12, 2011, the Court entered a final judgment against relief defendant Micol Chiaese, ordering that she pay disgorgement of her ill-gotten gains of $304,860.34, inclusive of prejudgment interest.

SEC Charges Former CFO of Oak Hill Financial, Inc. and Two Others With Insider Trading
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged three people with insider trading in the securities of Oak Hill Financial, Inc. (“Oak Hill”) ahead of a July 20, 2007 announcement that Oak Hill would be acquired by WesBanco, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSBC). The Commission alleges Dale Shafer, who at the time was Oak Hill’s interim CFO, shared information with his cousin, Jason Gonski, about the anticipated merger. Gonski purchased Oak Hill stock in his account and another account and made approximately $35,500 in illicit profits. In addition, Gonski tipped his friend Joseph Mroz, and the two men together made approximately $15,099 from illegal trading in Oak Hill stock.
The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The complaint alleges that:
Shafer learned of the planned merger on May 14, 2007, and told Gonski about it. Gonski misappropriated the information by trading on it. He later told Shafer that he bought Oak Hill stock. Shafer did not tell Gonski to stop trading and did not tell anyone at Oak Hill what had happened. Over the next several weeks, Shafer continued to provide material, nonpublic information about the merger to Gonski and during this time period, Gonski substantially increased his position in Oak Hill. Gonski also tipped his friend Mroz, and they both bought shares of Oak Hill using Mroz’s brokerage account. Total profits in the accounts Gonski traded in were approximately $50,000, which includes $15,099 in profits from trading in the account of Mroz.
Without admitting or denying the allegations in the complaint, Shafer, Gonski and Mroz have offered to settle the case by consenting to the entry of a final judgment permanently enjoining them from violating Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5. The three settling defendants have agreed to pay disgorgement, prejudgment interest, and penalties totaling more than $150,000, as follows:
Gonski will pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest totaling $59,565.24 for which Shafer is jointly and severally liable for $38,957.81 of that amount and Mroz is jointly and severally liable for $8,766.74. Gonski will pay a civil penalty of $50,686.38. Shafer will pay a civil penalty of $33,484.08. Mroz will pay a civil penalty of $7,459.95. In addition, Shafer has agreed to be barred for five years from serving as an officer or director of a publicly traded company. Shafer has also consented to the issuance of an order under Rule 102(e)(3) suspending him from appearing or practicing before the Commission as an accountant with a right to apply for reinstatement after five years. The proposed settlements are subject to the court’s approval.
The Commission acknowledges the assistance of FINRA in this matter. [SEC v. Dale Shafer, Joseph Mroz and Jason Gonski, Civ. Action No. 1:12-CV-00062-SJD (S.D Ohio)] (LR-22233)
SEC Charges Former Loan Officer With Oak Hill Financial, Inc. and Three Others With Insider Trading
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged four people with insider trading in the securities of Oak Hill Financial, Inc. (“Oak Hill”) ahead of a July 20, 2007 announcement that Oak Hill would be acquired by WesBanco, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSBC). The Commission alleges that Robert Ward, who at the time was a loan officer at Oak Hill, tipped his friend, Benjamin Lewis, about the anticipated merger. Benjamin Lewis then tipped his father, Stanley Lewis, who then tipped his daughter, Jamie Lewis. The Lewises made approximately $100,000 from their illegal trading in Oak Hill.
The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The complaint alleges that:
Robert Ward knowingly or recklessly tipped his childhood friend Benjamin Lewis about an imminent merger between Oak Hill and WesBanco. Benjamin Lewis tipped his father, Stanley Lewis, who then tipped his daughter, Jamie Lewis. The Lewises began purchasing Oak Hill stock. All total, Benjamin Lewis, Stanley Lewis and Jamie Lewis realized illicit profits of approximately $108,000.
Without admitting or denying the allegations in the complaint, the four settling defendants have agreed to pay disgorgement, prejudgment interest and penalties totaling more than $230,000 as follows:
Benjamin Lewis will pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest totaling $50,209.77. Stanley Lewis will pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest totaling $54,715.77. Jamie Lewis will pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest totaling $17,564.70. Robert Ward is jointly and severally liable with the Lewises for disgorgement and prejudgment interest, all of which has been waived based on a demonstrated inability to pay. A penalty has not been imposed on Robert Ward based on a demonstrated inability to pay. Benjamin Lewis will pay a civil penalty of $44,574.55. Stanley Lewis will pay a civil penalty of $48,842.66. Jamie Lewis will pay a civil penalty of $14,995.58. The proposed settlements are subject to the court’s approval.
The SEC acknowledges the assistance of FINRA in the investigation of this matter. [SEC v. Robert Ward, Stanley Lewis, Jamie Lewis, and Benjamin Lewis, Civ. Action No. 1:12-CV-00061-SSB-KLL (S.D Ohio)] (LR-22234)
SEC Brings Fraud Charges Against Former InPhonic Senior Vice President and President of Americas Premiere Corporation
On January 25, 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Commission) filed a civil injunctive action against a former senior vice president and a vendor of InPhonic, Inc., a now-bankrupt online retailer of cellular phones that was headquartered in Washington, D.C. According to the Commission’s complaint, from late 2005 through early 2007, Len A. Familant, then an InPhonic senior vice president, and Paul V. Greene, president of telephone supplier Americas Premiere Corporation (APC), engaged in a fraudulent scheme involving a series of “round-trip transactions” to artificially inflate InPhonic’s financial results.
The Commission’s complaint, filed in federal court in the District of Columbia, alleges:
Greene is charged with violating, and aiding and abetting InPhonic’s and Familant’s violations, of the antifraud provisions of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Exchange Act Rules 10b-5(a) and (c). Greene is also charged with violating the books and records provision of Exchange Act Rule 13b2-1, and with aiding and abetting InPhonic’s violations of the reporting and books and records provisions of Sections 13(a) and 13(b)(2)(A) of the Exchange Act and Exchange Act Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, 13a-11 and 13a-13. The SEC is seeking a permanent injunction, disgorgement, civil penalties and prejudgment interest against Greene.
Familant has agreed to settle the Commission’s charges without admitting or denying the allegations against him. Familant has consented to a final judgment enjoining him from violating the antifraud provisions of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Exchange Act Rules 10b-5(a) and (c), and the books and records provision of Exchange Act Rule 13b2-1, and from aiding and abetting InPhonic’s violations of the reporting and books and records provisions of Sections 13(a) and 13(b)(2)(A) of the Exchange Act and Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, 13a-11 and 13a-13. Familant also has agreed to pay a $50,000 civil penalty and to be barred from serving as an officer or director of a public company. The proposed settlement with Familant is subject to the approval of the District Court. [SEC v. Len A Familant and Paul V.
