This year's October NAFER conference was a GREAT success, and we're grateful for all of you who joined us! Below are a few photos from the weekend:
The keynote presentation was a unique look at the case history of an actual Ponzi scheme featuring the fraudster, SEC enforcement counsel, the receiver, and receiver’s counsel.
In an talk show host format, the SEC’s Marshall Gandy joined NAFER President Greg Hays and Troutman Sanders Partner David Dantzler as they discussed the development – and eventual unraveling – of convicted Ponzi scheme perpetrator Travis Correll's $100M Ponzi scheme.
