Seattle

Securities Fraud in the Great Northwest

Most-notably recognized for the national coffee giant, Starbucks and an explosion of Silicon Valley companies, Seattle has also been the home to some significant financial frauds. It has been recently reported that Donald "Ski" Johnson has been charged with developing several schemes over the years to steal from charity fund raisers and events.

In a widely reported and televised case, Frederick Darren Berg was sentenced to 18 years in prison for defrauding hundreds of investors of more than $100 million through the Meridian Mortgage investment funds he ran for roughly over a decade. This is the largest case of fraud in Washington State but definitely not the only reported instance securities fraud.
