(Toledo News Now) -

The Ohio Attorney General and the Ohio Department of Commerce have both obtained temporary restraining orders against Nancy Jo Frazer and Albert Rosebrock after a WTOL 11 investigation revealed questions about an investment business in Bryan, OH.

The allegations against Frazer, Rosebrock, and their companies include securities fraud and violation of Ohio charitable law by soliciting investments in an online scam through an organization called Profitable Sunrise.

The complaint accuses Frazer and Rosebrock of using websites for Profitable Sunrise, Focus Up Ministries, and their related groups – which referenced charitable and religious works - to help build the largest group of investors in Profitable Sunrise. The complaint further states that Frazer and Rosebrock used profits and commissions for personal expenses instead of for charitable work.

Toledo News Now has reached out to Frazer and Rosebrock. Frazer says she can't talk about the allegations.

A preliminary injunction hearing is set for July 22.
