Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
It has to be devastating, fearful, and embarrassing of have law officials come to your home or place of business to arrest you for a white-collar crime. But, that’s exactly what happened to today’s CrimeDiva, Kari Sonovich, 42, of La Vegas. [Middle age women – have become very much the profile of CrimeDivas.]
According to records, Ms. Sonovich was indicted by a grand jury on three-counts of mail fraud in an alleged investment ponzi scheme where she allegedly received over $3 million from investors. [But check this out, they arrested her before the grand jury announced the indictment.]
The court documents indicated that Ms. Sonovich recruited people to invest in her Las Vegas company, B&B Consulting Group LLC from July 2008 through April 2009. [Wow, that wasn’t a whole year and over $3 million. I don’t know about these kind of things. That may not be a lot of money, but if it’s illegal — it’s a lot of money!] She allegedly assured these investors by telling them she could place their funds with an international trader who operated at an extremely high level, promising returns of up to 500 percent every 90 days, [Wow, you can fool a lot of people big time]. But, some or all the funds went directly to her . . . allegedly. Up until the reporting of this case, no investor has received the promised returns, and in most or all instances, investors have not received any of their initial investment back, according to authorities.
According to records, some of these investors who invested in Ms. Sonvich’s scheme did so at the same time they had been defrauded by an earlier investment fraud scheme through another company, ‘Equity Investment Management and Trading”. [I understand that people want to quickly recover what was lost, but extreme caution should be taken with your funds, especially when you ‘KNOW’ you can loss all your funds when investing. Yes it’s a gamble!]
Ms. Sonovich case was the direct result of an Internal Revenue Service investigation; and remember she is not guilty until proven in the court of law.
