Investigation: Noes Used Money For Personal Expenses


(Toledo, OH) A Toledo Tales investigation has revealed that Tom and Bernadette Noe - the foci of state investigations in the Coingate saga - made numerous personal expenditures on the days that checks were cashed by Tom's Vintage Coins business.

Among the thousands of financial documents: a Kroger receipt in the amount of $32.47 dated July 20, 2002, the day a $5,400 check was cashed by Vintage Coins and Cards.

Ohio state auditor Jim Petro confirmed the findings of Toledo Tales.

“We think that as we go through more and more of the transaction records, March 31, 1998, until May 24, 2005 I think we’re going to find more instances where assets could have been converted or abused in one way or another,” Mr. Petro said to a Toledo Blade reporter. "You will even see Bernadette using money - real cash - to buy things like milk and feminine hygiene products."

Among other finds - a gasoline receipt that Tom Noe used to fill up his car in the amount of $20.57 on January 26, 2004, the same day that Vintage Coins and Cards deposited a check in the amount of $500.00.

Petro told Toledo Tales that he was "aghast" that Noe would pay cash for gasoline.

"That's so...so...old-fashioned," he said. "What more damning proof do you need that there was wrong-doing? Who else besides an old-fashioned gangster would pay cash for anything these days?"

Mr. Petro said Noe’s businesses operated in the manner of a “Ponzi” scheme, telling a Toledo Blade reporter that Noe received “investment dollars and you pay the investment dollars out as supposed earnings, when in fact to get that money you bring in more investment dollars.”

“You know, named after that famous scam artist, a guy named Ponzi,” he told the Blade. “Yes, I think it’s a Ponzi scheme.”

Petro said that a state audit revealed that Noe actually walked around with cash quite frequently.

"Noe told associates that he often carried as much as $200 on his person," he said, momentarily glancing into his own wallet. "This bastard is going down!"

Hi ##NAME##, while looking for info on hyip ponzi, I saw your blog ##TITLE##. A lot of people got excited by it. Those may be the same folks who get excited about the idea of ending the day with $150 for every $100 they "spend" in a HYIP. In time they will have to face up to having lost their butts in a scam, fraud, or ponzi scheme. Better to have the hyip ponzi information upfront like in the ##LINK##. You don't have to buy the ebook & membership for $47 to avoid losing - or just don't play - until you know how the pros who wrote it make their money - and yours too!
