Investment Advisor Sentenced To 97 Months In Ponzi Scheme

DETROIT (WWJ) – A Farmington Hills investment advisor has been sentenced to 97 months for spear heading a $4 million Ponzi Scheme.

As part of his scheme, 56-year-old Keith Epstein directed clients – many of whom were elderly – to liquidate investments in order to put them in new, less risky instruments with him. He then diverted those funds for  his own use — and spent it on things like gambling and strip clubs.

In addition to his prison sentence, Epstein was ordered to pay all his victims back.

    If Epstein committed a crime, why isn’t Obama a criminal for stealing half a billion dollars from us and giving it to his Solyndra pals. The DOJ is a very confusing bunch of folks.
