HELENA - The state Securities Department alleges two Montana businessmen duped investors out of more than $1 million in a fraudulent investment scheme.
It's alleged that Missoula businessman Shawn Swor and Hamilton businessman Dan Two Feathers committed securities fraud against at least five investors.
Swor and Two Feathers are charged with convincing the five to invest in excess of $1 million in a fraudulent scheme, claiming investors would receive a weekly return of between 200 percent and 400 percent.
Swor could not be located for comment Tuesday. Two Feathers declined to comment on the advice of his attorney, Milt Datsopoulos of Missoula, who also represents Swor.
Datsopoulous did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
