It is apparently the first known disclosure linking a Southern California white-collar criminal enterprise to BCCI, the Luxembourg-based banking group that is at the center of an international banking scandal.

The government agencies contended that First American Currency Inc. was selling illegal off-exchange futures contracts. U.S. District Judge David V. Kenyon appointed a receiver one day after 35 U.S. Postal Inspectors seized First American's books and records.

One of the toughest sentences ever handed down in a telemarketing fraud case was given Monday to a former Orange County businessman whom the judge dubbed the "king of swindlers" for bilking investors of $12 million, much of which was diverted to a subsidiary of the now-infamous Bank of Credit and Commerce International. Gilbert Traylor Jr., 44, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role as co-owner of First American Currency of Laguna Hills.
