Ex Advisor Admits to Defrauding Clients

The former president of Coastal Investment Advisors Inc., Michael Donnelly, admitted to defrauding his clients. Donnelly swindled almost $2 million from 13 clients, many of whom were over the age of 65. According to the SEC, Donnelly misappropriated money provided to him by his clients for investment and used it to pay personal expenses. Donnelly was able to perpetuate his scheme by providing false account statements and trade confirmations to the clients. Donnelley's settlement of the SEC's charges requires him to pay $1.9 million in disgorgement and interest of $365,723.
