A court date has finally been set in a fraud case involving some area residents.
The Bryan Times is reporting that the case against David and Nancy Jo Frazer of Bryan and Albert Rosebrock of Sherwood will be headed to trial in September.
Last summer the Ohio Attorney General’s office filed suit against the Frazers and Rosebrock concerning their alleged involvement in Defining Vision Ministries, formerly known as Focus Up Ministries Inc., and Profitable Sunrise, which the AG’s office says was part of an international pyramid scheme, that defrauded investors out of millions of dollars. The operation was eventually shut down by federal and international authorities.
The three are accused of using funds donated to Focus Up Ministries for unlawful purposes including personal business ventures, a big-screen TV, no-interest personal loans and compensation of agents who solicited on behalf of the alleged scheme.
Now, a final pretrial conference has been set for 1 p.m. Sept. 4.
The trial is slated to get underway Sept. 15 at 9 a.m. in Williams County Common Pleas Court.
