DOJ Charges Orland Park Investment Adviser with Stealing more than $5 Million from Clients

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The Department of Justice has charged Orland Park investment adviser, Daniel Glick with one count of wire fraud for allegedly stealing more than $5 million from clients, including his elderly in-laws.

According to the DOJ, Mr. Glick, through his three businesses, Financial Management Strategies, Inc., Glick Accounting Services, Inc., and Glick & Associates Ltd. represented to his clients that he would invest their money in safe investments. However, instead of investing his clients’ money, Mr. Glick used their funds to purchase luxury items and to pay off his mortgage.

Mr. Glick concealed the fraud by continuing to pay the bills and expenses on behalf of certain clients by using his other clients’ funds in a Ponzi-style scheme. Moreover, Mr. Glick also misappropriated at least several million dollars of funds from clients by providing financial institutions, such as Citizens Financial Bank and U.S. Bank National Association, with forged checks and other documents.

If convicted, Mr. Glick could face up to 20 years in prison. Earlier this year, Mr. Glick also was sued by the SEC for orchestrating the fraud.
