Clarice Saw Charged with Defrauding Customer in $2.4M Scheme

According to an SEC complaint filed on July 28th, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, from approximately December 2021 through March 2022, Saw engaged in a fraudulent scheme to misappropriate $2.4 million from a 87-year-old brokerage client, while registered with Cetera Investment Services.

Saw allegedly manipulated her elderly customer into signing a document granting her power of attorney, and liquidated all of the customer’s securities holdings without his authorization. Saw also allegedly used some misappropriated funds to purchase securities in her name for personal brokerage accounts.

The SEC further found that “Saw used a portion of the misappropriated funds to pay for her personal expenses, including approximately $100,000 in car and mortgage payments and thousands of dollars of cash withdrawals.” The regulator is seeking injunctive relief, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains with prejudgment interest and civil penalties.
