Yesterday afternoon, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes shut down High Class NY, serving 17 people involved in the “high-end escort service” with indictments. According to Hynes, the Sheepshead Bay-based business was patronized largely by customers “from the financial markets, many of them hedge fund people, with nothing but money, willing to pay enormous amounts for God knows what,” from girls of every ethnicity but Irish. The bust, one would assume, ruined the days of every investor and financial services hack who relied on HCNY when they were looking to drop $3,600/hour on some high class loving. Today, we discovered yet more bad news- not only did Hynes ruin some of your colleagues’ afternoons, but their upcoming holidays as well. Read more »

Unfortunate news for those who’ve been patronizing High Class NY: the “high-end” escort serviced based in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn has been shut down by the Feds, who today indicted 17 people involved in the business. For those of you not intimately familiar with HCNY, it was a family affair run by husband and wife Mikhail and Bronislava Yampolsky and their sons, Alexander and Jonathan. According to Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes, customers “came from the financial markets, many of them hedge fund people, with nothing but money, willing to pay enormous amounts for God knows what.” Prices ranged from $400 to $3,600 per hour, and girls of every stripe were available, though, Hynes noted somewhat smugly, no Irish girls sullied their family names by getting involved (“There were full-service options [of women]. There were Europeans, Americans, Australians and people of all races,” Hynes said. “No one Irish.”) When customers wanted to add cocaine or other paraphernalia to their order, they’d use code phrases like “I’d like a bottle of Champagne” and fork over an extra $170. What’d the guy who dropped $170,000 receive in exchange? Hynes doesn’t even want to know.

This is a guest post written by SoFi’s CEO, Mike Cagney.
Recently, there’s been a lot of talk amongst leaders in Washington about how to improve the painful process of repaying student loans. At SoFi, we feel your pain and work hard to offer more flexible, more affordable options for our borrowers. One idea that’s getting a lot of attention is increasing the options for refinancing debt after graduation. The only lender currently focused on refinancing private and federal student loans is SoFi.
We recognized early on that borrowers who have made timely payments on their loans, graduated from school, and have a job should be able to refinance their student loans at a lower interest rate. This may be why, after resuming lending by invitation, the media became increasingly interested in what we are doing.

You know what they say: You can’t choose your family, but you can choose your financial planner. Or something like that. One of the great things of being in charge of your money is choosing who (if anyone) will help you manage it. The choice isn’t always an easy one. How will you know that your planner is reputable and trustworthy?
These five red flags may be good indications of whether the financial planner sitting across from you is someone you should trust with your money. LearnVest Planning also provides an innovative 7-step program for your money where you work one-on-one with a financial planner. To see if this program is right for you, start with a free financial consultation.
1. She Isn’t Certified
“There are a lot of good planners out there who aren’t Certified Financial Panners™,” says Samantha Vient, CFP®, of LearnVest Planning Services. “However, CFPs® are required to adhere to the CFP® Board’s standards of professional conduct.
We believe it’s always a good idea to work with someone who has the CFP® designation, which is issued after completing a CFP® Board-approved personal financial planning curriculum, passing a rigorous exam issued by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, meeting experience requirements and passing an ethics and background check.
