Former J.P. Morgan Adviser Michael Oppenheim Admits to Stealing $22m From Clients

In April of 2015, our securities fraud lawyers posted a blog about former J.P. Morgan adviser Michael J. Oppenheim (CRD# 3021013). Oppenheim was accused of stealing $20 million from his J.P Morgan customers. Yesterday, Oppenheim pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud and one count of embezzlement for stealing what turned out to be around $22 million from his clients. The sentencing hearing has been scheduled for February.

Prosecutors accused Oppenheim of defrauding numerous clients over the course of seven years. The clients expected their funds to be invested in low-risk municipal bonds. Instead, Oppenheim allegedly used the money for his own expenses and sent fake statements that showed profits earned to the clients. Oppenheim was accused of using the funds to pay bills, pay for a home loan, gamble, and pay other investors back.
