To cover his losses, Orvidas created fake account statements and made false excuses for not paying out earnings or returning investments. As a result, he has been ordered to repay the investors more than $2 Million in restitution and pay a $500,000 civil penalty. Orvidas is likewise banned from trading commodities for 10 years and must cease all fraudulent activities.
