California Securities Arbitration Lawyers Who Handle Ponzi Scheme Cases
California has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to recommend investments in Ponzi Schemes and engage in all sorts of misconduct which violates Federal and [State] securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Former Carlsbad, California broker Sunil Sharma plead guilty to wire fraud charges in Federal court last week. According to the U.S. Attorney Office (USAO), Mr. Sharma admitted that he stole $6 million from investors by misrepresenting that he was making conservative investments when he actually was pursuing a risky day trading strategy. Mr. Sharma allegedly organized a massive Ponzi scheme in which he used money from new investors to pay an earlier investor’s returns. Ponzi schemes invariably fall apart when markets deteriorate or when the schemer is unable to raise more cash. Mr. Sharma admitted to diverting approximately $2.5 million of investors’ funds for his own personal benefit, including a down payment on a house, a cruise, and leasing expensive cars. The former Merrill Lynch and Raymond James broker, Sunil Sharma, faces 20 years in prison and possible fines and restitution.Experienced Securities Attorneys Who Represent Investors Caught In Ponzi Schemes In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout California and Nationwide
