Leon Vaccarelli Securities Fraud Recovery Options

According to a recent complaint filed in federal court for the District of Connecticut, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Connecticut-based broker representative and investment adviser Leon Vaccarelli  (Lee Vaccarelli) and his company with fraudulently persuading several elderly customers to invest with him and then spending their money on his own living and business expenses.

The SEC's complaint alleges that instead of investing the customers' money in such things as conventional brokerage accounts and so-called separately managed accounts as promised, Vaccarelli deposited customer funds into his personal and business bank accounts. He allegedly commingled the funds with his own money and used them for his own purposes, and in some instances he used customer funds to pay returns to earlier investors. According to the SEC's complaint, Vaccarelli asked one customer to sign an agreement that she would not provide certain information to FINRA or the SEC. Vaccarelli allegedly sold more than $450,000 in securities that were held in trust for the care and maintenance of a beneficiary and used some of the proceeds to pay business and personal expenses.

The SEC alleges that Vaccarelli defrauded clients of more than $1 million, and the agency is seeking an asset freeze against Vaccarelli, individually and doing business as Lux Financial Services, and his company, LWLVACC, LLC.

According to the Complaint, from no later than September 2012, through early 2017, Vaccarelli personally and through his entity LWLVACC induced at least nine of Vaccarelli’s brokerage customers and other individuals to invest approximately $1 million in what Vaccarelli represented were private loans and investments. Vaccarelli used the money raised for those so-called investments to pay personal expenses or to make Ponzi-like payments to prior investors.

If you are a victim, you may have investment loss recovery options.
