Malcolm Segal—Fraud Scheme
Malcolm Segal Allegedly Ran a $3 Million Fraud Scheme
Malcolm Segal, 69, and of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, allegedly ran a $3 million fraud scheme wherein he stole from individuals who thought they were investing their money in Certificates of Deposit, and from investors who held funds in brokerage accounts while he worked at Aegis, according to an unsealed SEC Indictment from the U.S. District Court for Eastern Pennsylvania.
The Court Documents further allege that, between July 2011 and July 2014, Segal told a client, known only as B.P., that Mercantile Bank and Bear Stearns were offering Certificates of Deposit (CDs) which paid an annual interest rate of up to 12% with a minimum two-year investment of $100,000.
Malcolm Segal Allegedly Stole an Aggregate Total of Approximately $1,885,067 from Ten Investors
Said Indictment goes on to allege that Segal purportedly accepted at least $100,000 from each of six investors, and that he showed that he had purchased CDs on their behalf when he actually had not.
Segal then, the Indictment further alleges, reportedly mailed fraudulent deposit confirmations from National CD Sales Inc. to the alleged victims, and then mailed the victims checks which he represented as interest payments.
According to the Indictment, Segal used his victims’ money to pay personal expenses and to pay off other investors instead of purchasing CDs on behalf of the victims as promised. Segal then, the Indictment reports, allegedly stole an aggregate total of approximately $1,885,067.10 from the victims, representing the purchase price of the CDs less the purported interest payments.
