NBA Players Had Millions Stolen by Ex-Morgan Stanley Adviser, Prosecutors Say
A former Morgan Stanley investment adviser and three others were charged with defrauding professional basketball players of $13 million, in the latest alleged scheme targeting pro athletes.
Federal prosecutors in New York on Thursday charged the former adviser, Darryl Cohen, along with a financial planner, an NBA agent and a former stockbroker in two schemes to cheat players.
The US claims Cohen and the financial planner, Brian Gilder, fraudulently convinced three of the unidentified players to buy life insurance policies at markups as high as 310%. He used some of the money to pay off his credit card bill, for work on his home and pool and to pay $200,000 to a person with whom he was romantically involved, according to the government.
