Director, SEC Division of Enforcement
Feb. 11, 2014
"We’re very pleased the jury found Marlon Quan liable for securities fraud and that he will be held accountable for his deception in funneling several hundred million dollars of investor money into the Tom Petters Ponzi scheme.
“Facilitators of Ponzi schemes are just as culpable and harmful to investors as those who are conducting the schemes, and we thank the jury for sending that message in its verdict."
