    SEC and DOJ file insider charges seven using stolen bank data

    The Securities and Exchange Commission charged seven individuals on Wednesday with insider trading in what it said was a wide-ranging scheme that generated millions in profits by trading on confidential information about dozens of impending mergers and acquisitions. The SEC says Daniel Rivas, a former IT employee of a large bank, allegedly misused his access to his former employer's computer system to tip four individuals who traded on confidential information about upcoming transactions and others who also traded and passed along the tips. According to the SEC, the traders profited on market-moving news related to 30 impending corporate deals from October 2014 to April 2017. Rivas also allegedly tipped his girlfriend's father, James Moodhe, who traded on the information and used coded conversations and in-person meetings to relay the tips to his friend, Michael Siva, a financial advisor at a brokerage firm. Siva allegedly used the confidential information to make profitable trades for his brokerage firm clients, earning commissions for himself in the process, and he passed numerous tips along to a client who traded on them. Siva also allegedly traded on behalf of himself and his wife based on two of the tips he got from Moodhe, a former financial services company treasurer. Two of Rivas's friends in Florida, Roberto Rodriguez and Rodolfo Sablon, allegedly discussed tips on an encrypted, self-destructing smartphone messaging application and used shell companies to carry out their insider trading. Rodriguez and Sablon allegedly converted less than $100,000 into more than $2 million in profits by making aggressive options trades based on the confidential information. Rodriguez also is alleged to have passed several tips to one of his friends who also traded. A third alleged trading ring involved Jhonatan Zoquier who profited by trading on inside information communicated through the encrypted messaging application. New Jersey-based Zoquier allegedly passed confidential information to Jeffrey Rogiers of Oakland, California more than once. Rogiers allegedly placed several illegal trades for himself and tipped others to trade. The traders allegedly attempted to evade detection by using shell companies, code words, and an encrypted, self-destructing messaging application. However, the SEC Market Abuse Unit's Analysis and Detection Center used data analysis tools to detect suspicious patterns such as the improbably successful trading across different securities over time. The SEC's investigation is continuing. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York also filed criminal charges on Wednesday against the same seven individuals.
