CannaFarma Investment Scam – Investors Defrauded Out of $4 Million by a Fake CEO
Written by on October 20, 2021
The indictment explains that CanaFarma’s alleged scheme can be traced back to October 2018. In 2018, the duo, via a straw purchaser, initiated acquiring a dormant Canadian shell company. A few months later, Palatnik and Fargesen reached out to individuals identified as “Co-conspirator 1” (CC-1) and “Co-conspirator 2,” (CC-2). The filing explains that Palatnik and Fargesen informed CC-1 and CC-2 that they had a pool of investors overseas who would fund their idea. The idea was to create a company founded on hemp-derived products. And as soon as they get the funds, they will be up and running.
