HAYS DAILY NEWS PACK !) December 13, 1976 Possible Fraud Investigated CHICAGO (UPI) - A federal task force is investigating possible multimlllion dollar tax frauds jtemming from transactions on the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the International Monetary Market, a JLJ.S. attorney says. .Commodity prices were not affected in the transactions under scrutiny, the board and exchange said in commenting on the disclosure, nor were the prices paid by .consumers on grains, meat, eggs, and other goods on which the boards trade in futures prices. Investigators are seeking to determine whether some trading had been aimed at the '"creation of fictitious and fraudulent trades and tran- •sactions for the purpose of avoiding tax liability," .Skinner said. •.Such trades would involve .phony account nominees, or transactions among traders late in a trading day, using .'prices posted earlier in the cycle so that fictitious .josses could be set up to avoid ; -taxes on profits. Skinner said it was impossible to determine "the magnitude of any fraud that may have occcurred." The Chicago Daily News said a federal investigator estimated' $100 million "would be close" to the possible loss. Skinner said a federal grand jury investigation has been expanded to include currency futures on the International Monetary Market. Existence of a federal grand jury investigation into possibly fraudulent tax dealings in trades'has been known for weeks, but U.S. Attorney Samuel K. Skinner Friday said it is now a "multifaceted investigation" on an "extremely large scale." "The largest task force ever assembled in this district" will be at work on the probe, Skinner said. Two of his men have been working on it for about six months, and he planned to assign two more to work full time, with operatives from the Internal Revenue Service and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Spokesmen for the board of trade and the mercantile exchange said they were gratified Skinner denied any reports linking organized crime with futures trading and that the violations being investigated "do not affect prices of commodities or prices paid by consumers."
