Calls for Vantis, one of the UK’s dodgiest and most troubled accountancy firms, to be removed as receiver to the collapsed business empire of alleged fraudster Sir Allen Stanford (pictured above) are reaching a crescendo. Aim-listed Vantis is nearly bust — it only survives thanks to the generosity of state-owned banks RBS and Lloyds Banking Group — and this is seen by creditors as prejudicing its ability to handle the complex receivership. Texas-born Allen Stanford is accused of defrauding clients through a $7bn Ponzi fraud centred around certificates of deposit issued by his Antiguan bank. In submitting an ... market research, surveys and trends

A lawyer for Facebook Inc. said she was “unsure” whether company founder Mark Zuckerberg signed a contract that purportedly entitles a New York man to 84 percent of the world’s biggest social-networking service. Paul Ceglia filed a complaint against Facebook and Zuckerberg in state court in New York’s Allegany County on June 30.

HOUSTON (Bloomberg) — Former Stanford Financial Group executives shouldn't be forced to testify at an insurance-coverage trial about their roles in an alleged $7 billion fraud run by Allen Stanford before a criminal trial can be held, their lawyer said in a court filing.

Stanford, five of his firms and associates James Davis and Laura Pendergest-Holt are named in the SEC complaint, which is a civil matter. Separately, Pendergest-Holt is accused in a criminal obstruction case based on her talks with regulators in February 2009.
