XXXX, from Salt Lake County, pleaded guilty on January 3 0 , 2 0 0 6 to attempted securities fraud, a third degree felony. In April 2005, XXXX was charged one count of securities fraud (a second degree felony) for making false statements and omitting to disclose material information in connection with the offer or sale of an investment. XXXX had told the owners of Exotic Media that they were in violation of Utah's securities laws and had to transfer ownership of the company to him to avoid criminal charges. Exotic Media published Exotic Cars Magazine. XXXX initially was hired as a consultant to Exotic Media, then told the owners they were in violation of the law. He falsely claimed to be an intermediary with the Utah Division of Securities and said the owners could avoid jail only by transferring the company and its assets to him. The fraudulent statements included claims the company's books had been reviewed by the Division of Securities, that the company was in violation of the law, that XXXX could help them avoid criminal prosecution if they gave him the company and its assets, and that the owners would be granted immunity. XXXX failed to disclose that he had a criminal history of bad checks and drug violations and unpaid tax liens of more than $150,000. XXXX was sentenced to three years probation, 200 hours of community service, restitution of $3,800, and an order that he complete mental health evaluation and treatment programs When I questioned him about this he did admit to it, but said that was in the past and he was suing the state of Utah about this. I told him I'm not interested in making the sale and hung up. Scary stuff!
