Paradigm Capital Group chief David Kushner who, along with his wife Nanci, was charged this week with "unleashing a two-year barrage of anonymous, negative e-mails in a bid to get the[ir] kid’s coach to quit or be fired" apparently used similar tactics (and the same email address) in dealing with a pal.

The Kushners also were charged with harassment last week in Tenafly, where police say they sent anonymous emails to a former friend...In the Tenafly case, the Kushners sent emails under the account of joeydag1@gmail.com to Tenafly resident Cory Hechler, a longtime friend and golfing partner of David Kushner. Hechler had filed a civil lawsuit in 2014 alleging that Kushner persuaded him to invest in business deals that lost a substantial amount of money. In the case of the Cresskill coach, the Kushners allegedly used the joeydag1@gmail.com account four times in the last two years to send messages to school officials "in an attempt to have him dismissed" from his position as a coach and a health teacher, according to police documents. Other emails were sent from an account called coachdoto@gmail.com, police said.

Obviously the Kushners can't go back in time but for the rest of you, let this be a lesson: if you're going to cyber stalk a variety of people, don't get lazy and use the same gmail account every time. This isn't amateur hour.

Kushner resigns as president of Alpine club; couple called coach anti-Semitic, report says [NJ]

Connection To A Company Called "Yeah Baby" Not Even The Best Part Of "High School Buddies" Insider Trading Scam

Over the past several years, much has been made about the supposed incompetence of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The regulator failed to realize Bernie Madoff had been running an illegitimate Ponzi scheme, despite more or less being told by Bernie Madoff himself, "I am running an illegitimate Ponzi scheme." It went after David Einhorn, when it should have been going after Allied Capital, the company the hedge fund manager told them was committing fraud. Its proposal for stepping up investigators' games was to start a Fraud College.* Until recently, it employed individuals in the office responsible for "ensuring exchanges follow guidelines concerning...computer audits, security, and capacity" who had "little or no experience with exchange technical matters." At this point, there have been so many stories about the SEC getting things wrong that the default is to assume it fucked up, even when that is not actually the case. What's more, even when Team Schapiro is on top of its game, resources are so strained that many scams that should be caught fall through the cracks. So you can maybe understand why a group of "high school buddies," along with a few other guys they picked up along the way, who were engaging in securities fraud, weren't too worried about getting caught.

As Dealbreaker historians will recall, last March marked our first Dealbreaker NCAA Tournament Challenge. It was inspired by a financial services hack who made the public announcement that he planned to (anonymously) report any colleagues he caught filling out brackets and keeping tabs on their picks during business hours. At the time, we encouraged you all to enter as many pools as were available, making it impossible for him to keep up with the amount of people and their offenses he needed to rat out, and created one to do our part. Is this guy still on the loose? He very well might be but regardless: never forget. To that end, sign up for the Second Annual Dealbreaker NCAA Tournament Challenge today.
