Matthew Eckstein Allegedly Raised $1.3 Million for a So-called Investment in Conmac Funding Corp which was Purportedly Operated by His Friend
Eckstein allegedly raised $1.3 million for a so-called investment in Conmac Funding Corp., a purported insurance company run by his friend, identified only as “KB”, according to FINRA Reports under review by attorney Alan Rosca.
The purported investments in Conmac Funding Corp. allegedly appear to be part of an investment scheme run by KB, and that Eckstein did no due diligence on the investment, and that he made material misrepresentations in connection with selling KB’s investments, FINRA states.
Eckstein also made claims to investors that after two years they would get their money back plus an additional 4 percent in interest, according to court records
A few of Eckstein’s clients were allegedly encouraged to deposit thousands of dollars into an account under Conmac Funding Corp., or Conmac Capital Lending LLC, in which he held exclusive authority, said court records note.
Eckstein, rather than investing the money into Conmac, allegedly used it to fund other business enterprises, make personal purchases, and pay other victims of the scheme, according to prosecutors.
