A British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) panel has permanently banned a B.C. resident from B.C.’s capital markets for fraud. Ayaz Dhanani fraudulently raised a total of $188,800 from three investors in exchange for promises to purchase shares in three resource companies that Dhanani claimed were about to go public.

Dhanani (aka Azim Virani, Michael Lee, Alex Nebris, Paul Dhanani, Samuel Ramos, and Rahim Jiwa) promised each investor that their investments would increase significantly in value over a short period of time.

Dhanani must also resign any position he holds as a director or officer of any issuer or registrant.
