    That's a hefty fine. And to think the SEC "only" fined Elon Musk $40 mil for a tweet about Tesla shares.

    5 More people were charged by the SEC for funneling investors to them as well.

    They had seminars and advertised for investors on the radio etc without disclosures ( illegal )

    There is a civil suit against them for millions in commission they made and an additional breach of fiduciary duty charge to go along with it then can turn into a criminal charge.

    I do not know how Riverdale ever made that much money the rates were not competitive at all


    Regulators also fined 2 Bank executives and charged them with money laundering and the bank secrecy act for touching the money...fined them 2.5 Million
