Yesterday evening, Secret Service agents raided former Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) Commander Ron Wilson’s business. They seized silver, files and computers from Atlantic Bullion & Coin, according to the Anderson, S.C., Independent Mail. The agents also seized items from his daughter Alison Shaum’s business, which is located next door.
Wilson is accused by the South Carolina’s attorney general in a civil suit of running a massive Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors in his company. So far, no one has been charged in the scheme.
On Thursday morning, the doors to Wilson’s business were locked and dozens of angry investors were outside. The Anderson paper reported that Wilson drove out of the back of the building and veered toward a group of reporters, but did not hit them.
