The St. Louis Post-Dispatch further reports:

“An infirm Navy veteran from St. Louis County has lost more than $400,000 after his longtime investment adviser persuaded him to lend his lifetime savings to a homebuilder now involved in a criminal investigation by federal authorities. Frank B. Steinberger’s complaint to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, a nonprofit that regulates investment brokers and dealers, says William A. Glaser, of St. Albans, had Steinberger sell annuities he owned and incur $45,000 in surrender charges to invest in two promissory notes with Everett Builders LLC, a company run by Paul Everett Creager.”

What is more, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois also reports:

“On August 9, 2017, U. S. District Court Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division, indicted Paul Everett Creager, owner of Everett Builders, on two felony counts of wire fraud. Mr. Creager was arrested and released on $10,000 bond. The indictment states Mr. Creager financed his business activities with, among other things, promissory notes, borrowing through at least one private lender and by selling interests in his entities to investors wishing to acquire equity.”

Finally, one should also note that, according to the AWC, William A. Glaser neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
