November 7, 2014- Laurie Schneider of Oceanside, who had pleaded guilty to wire fraud earlier this year, was sentenced to three years in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Denis Hurley for running a $7 million Ponzi scheme.
Schneider, age 39, made a tearful plea for leniency apologizing for the fact that some investors lost their life savings.
The scheme involved the operation of two shell companies Janitorial Close-Out City Corp. which falsely represented that it bought industrial equipment from China for resale in the US and Eager Beaver Realty which falsely represented that they were buying and selling foreclosure properties on Long Island.
