Becoming Financial Advisory Services LLC Owner Charged with Fraud | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
The Securities and Exchange Commission charged former Minneapolis-area investment adviser Isaiah L. Goodman for allegedly defrauding his advisory clients out of approximately $2.25 million.
According to the SEC’s complaint, from at least September 2018 to November 2020, Goodman, doing business through Becoming Financial Advisory Services, LLC, stole more than $2.25 million from at least 20 advisory clients. As alleged, Goodman falsely represented to these clients that he would invest their money in securities, including mutual funds and stocks for their retirement and investment accounts. Instead, Goodman allegedly misappropriated their money by using it for his own personal and business expenses, including home renovation and building expenses, car payments, and vacations. Goodman allegedly furthered the fraud by providing his clients with fake account statements and computer screenshots purporting to show that their funds were appropriately invested and their accounts had appreciated in value, and by making Ponzi-like payments to certain clients.
