Commodity Futures Trading Commission v. Cunwen Zhu and Justby




Case No. 2:23-cv-4937

  • Case Summary: The complaint filed by the CFTC asserts that Zhu and Justby, along with other individuals, engaged in a form of fraudulent activity known as "romance fraud," commonly referred to as a "Sha Zhu Pan" or "Pig Butchering" scheme. In this scheme, the fraudsters cultivate a friendly or romantic relationship with potential victims, and “fatten” them up with falsehoods, before soliciting the customer to participate in a fraudulent financial opportunity. The complaint alleges from approximately April 2021 through March 2022, Zhu and Justby accepted and misappropriated over $1.3 million from at least 29 customers as part of this scheme.

  • Case filed on 6/22/2023; currently ongoing
