Sean Sladek pleads guilty in Las Vegas USDC
The securities attorneys at The Law Office of David Liebrader have opened an investigation into the investment related conduct of Sean Sladek, who plead guilty on October 4, 2017 to defrauding investors as part of a scheme to support his gambling lifestyle in Las Vegas. Despite not having any securities licenses, Sladek held himself out as a successful securities trader, and told prospective investors that he could generate substantial returns.
FINRA hosts a database that the public can access to check the credentials of their financial advisors. The website, also known as broker check does not contains a listing for Sean Sladek, which implies that he was never licensed either as a broker dealer, a sales representative or as a registered investment advisor.
The indictment against Sladek described a scheme whereby he used social media dating sites, including Tinder and Bumble to lure unsuspecting victims into investing with him. Instead of using the money raised as represented to his victims, Sladek purportedly used the funds to gamble, for fine dining and for entertainment in Las Vegas.
United States District Court Judge Jennifer Dorsey ordered that Sean Sladek be jailed for 46 months, and that he pay restitution in the amount of $1,423,000.
