CAUTION

Eric Bartoli is wanted in Ohio for his alleged involvement in a ponzi scheme. During 1995 through 1999, Bartoli allegedly created and operated Cyprus Funds, Inc., (Cyprus), which was based out of Doylestown, Ohio, and incorporated in Central America and Belize. Bartoli and his co-conspirators allegedly operated Cyprus to sell certificates of deposit and unregistered mutual funds. Cyprus raised approximately $65 million from an estimated 800 investors in Latin America and the United States. Additionally, some of Cyprus's victims included retirees. It was also reported that Bartoli allegedly used the majority of the money invested with Cyprus to operate various business entities and for his personal use. It should be noted that one of Bartoli's partners died while the case was pending and the other individuals have since served their prison sentences.

On October 15, 2003, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, after Bartoli was charged with the following crimes: conspiracy; securities fraud; sale of unregistered securities; wire fraud; mail fraud; money laundering; and attempted income tax evasion.
