Prosecutors allege William Marshall Wolfe, as head of MTW Investment Financing LLC, operated a number of smaller firms under the MTW umbrella that sought investors’ money under the guise of putting it toward rehabilitating real estate properties.

The indictment alleges he companies were in bad financial shape and unbeknownst to investors Wolfe “drained the companies of millions of dollars within a short period of time.”

Prosecutors say that, while in the course of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Wolfe fraudulently transferred property from one of his companies, Steadivest LLC, to another, Investline/TFS Fund LLC.
