CAUTION

Salman Shariff is wanted for allegedly perpetrating a scheme to defraud approximately 350 investors out of over $10 million while owning and operating a financial corporation in Miami, Florida. Between December of 1996 and June of 2001, Shariff allegedly operated a "ponzi" scheme wherein he made false promises of annual returns in excess of 80%, utilizing a "conservative stock/stock options investment strategy" while paying out purported monthly earnings.

Shariff is alleged to have lost approximately $1 million in investors' funds in trading, published false monthly/annual returns, and ceased trading entirely by late 2000 despite continuing to receive new investor funds until his disappearance in June of 2001. Approximately $2 million in investors' funds were misappropriated with the purchase of luxury items, including a yacht and several automobiles.

On March 6, 2003, a Federal Grand Jury in Miami, Florida, returned a 43-count indictment for mail fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, and money laundering against Shariff. That same day, a United States Magistrate Judge, Southern District of Florida, issued a federal warrant for Shariff's arrest.
