On July 31, 2019 Investment Adviser Dawn Bennett was sentenced to 20 years in jail. Bennett defrauded no less than 46 Investors in a $20 million Ponzi scheme. Reportage is from the U.S. Attorney’s office (District of Maryland).
Bennett was handed the maximum sentence in addition to five years of supervised probation upon her release.
Bennett advertised her purported genius through use of a paid radio show: “Financial Myth Busting.” She was convicted last October of conspiracy and fraud—17 counts in all.
