Argent Asset Group LLC, First State Depository Company, LLC, and owner Robert Higgins have been ordered to pay a total of $146 million for making false representations to prospective precious metals investors and misappropriating tens of millions of dollars.  Through a fraudulent silver leasing program called the Maximus Program that promised guaranteed monthly lease payments, the defendants convinced some 200 unsuspecting customers into storing their assets with Argent.  Unbeknownst to customers, however, the defendants failed to adequately insure those assets despite making representations about coverage, and misappropriated client assets.  CFTC
