Worse, OTC Market’s banned the company’s legal counsel, Guy-Jean Pierre,in 2010, and the SEC later charged him with issuing fraudulent attorney opinion letters that resulted in more than 70 million shares of microcap stock becoming available for unrestricted trading.

Sears is an officer at two companies, Vertifresh and Meadpoint Ventures, with which FusionPharm has done considerable business.

In 2007, Sears pleaded guilty to federal charges involving securities fraud and bribery. He and his wife encouraged their clients, many of whom were retired, to invest substantial amounts of their savings in high-risk securities while failing to disclose that obvious risk, according to the SEC’s complaint .
