I can’t believe a Marine would do this (or is accused of doing this). He claims to be a grunt and to be an honor grad from his military schooling.



I say they check his DD 214. I’m skeptical.

Here is the finalt article:

A U.S. Marine veteran bilked his comrades out of nearly $2 million in a hedge fund scam, the Securities and Exchange Commission alleges.

Here is the formal SEC complaint:

This really pi#$es me off and gives every Marine a bad name.

Beware of any money manager that drives a vehicle that costs more than $20k and lives in a more expensive house than you do.

  • I tried to alert authorities to improprieties with this mutt in August 2010. No one would listen, including the initial investors. He demonized me and threatened legal action. I dodged a bullet…unfortunately many others who would not listen to logic, got burned and in doing so, allowed this fraud to continue for 3 years and close to 2M is now gone.
