$70 Million Scam on Old Man Alleged

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (CN) - Christopher Devine and Bruce Buzil preyed upon a lonely, frail and elderly man to defraud him of nearly $70 million for their company, Superior Broadcasting, which, contrary to their promises, never owned or bought a single radio station, the man's court-appointed guardian claims in Federal Court.

The guardian for C. Robert Allen III says Devine and Buzil funneled Allen's money through Superior to a slew of other LLCs they controlled. The guardian claims the men did this in a series of predatory moves, beginning in around 2000. Devine and Buzil both lived and worked in Chicago, the guardian says.

Here are the defendants: Christopher Divine, Bruce Buzil, Lakeshore Media LLC, Millcreek Broadcasting LLC, College Creek Media LLC, Marathon Media Group LLC, 3 Point Media Salt Lake City LLC, 3 Point Media Delta LLC, 3 Point Media Utah LLC, 3 Point Media Franklin LLC, 3 Point Media Franklin LLC, 3 Point Media Prescott Valley LLC, 3 Point Media Coalville LLC, 3 Point Media Arizona LLC, 3 Point Media Florida LLC, 3 Point Media Kansas LLC, 3 Point Media Ogden LLC, 3 Point Media San Francisco LLC, Midvalley Radio Partners LLC, D&B Towers LLC, Superior Broadcasting of Nevada LLC, Superior Broadcasting of Denver LLC, Wackenburg Associates LLC, Portland Broadcasting LLC, Desert Sky Media LLC, and Sky Media LLC.
