Donato J. Dandreo III (Release No. LR-24177; Jun. 29, 2018)

Litigation Release No. 24177 / June 29, 2018

Securities and Exchange Commission v. Donato J. Dandreo III, Civil Action No. 1:18-cv-11366 (D. Mass.)

On June 29, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged a Massachusetts real-estate developer with making several false statements in his attempts to raise funds from potential investors.
The SEC's complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, alleges that, from 2016-2017, Donato J. Dandreo made several misrepresentations to potential investors in his attempts to finance construction of residential homes through his real-estate development company Bounty Homes Corporation. The SEC's complaint alleges that Dandreo used an internet investment platform to attempt to raise funds. The complaint also alleges that in an attempt to convey the appearance of being a successful fundraiser, Dandreo claimed that Bounty Homes was an "opportunistic real estate investment company" and had "expert first-hand experience at every phase of the investment cycle." The complaint further alleges that Dandreo claimed to have raised almost $1.5 million from investors, despite having raised no money at all.
Without admitting or denying the SEC's allegations, Dandreo has agreed to the entry of a final judgment that enjoins him from future violations of Section 17(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933 and orders him to pay a civil penalty of $9,239. The settlement is subject to court approval.
The SEC's case was handled by David H. London, Susan Cooke Anderson, John McCann, and Michele Perillo of the SEC's Boston Office.

Analysis | The Cybersecurity 202: How the shutdown could make it harder for the government to retain cybersecurity talent

By Joseph Marks 13-17 minutes THE KEY President Trump delivers an address about border security amid a partial government shutdown on Jan. 8. (Carolyn Kaster/AP) The partial government shutdown that's now in its 18th day is putting key cyber policy priorities on hold and leaving vital operations to a bare bones staff. But the far greater long-term danger may be the blow to government cyber defenders' morale, former officials warn. With the prospect of better pay and greater job security in the private sector, more government cyber operators are likely to decamp to industry, those former officials tell me, and the smartest cybersecurity graduates will look to industry rather than government to hone their skills. That’s especially dangerous, they say, considering the government’s struggle to recruit and retain skilled workers amid a nationwide shortage of cybersecurity talent. About 20 percent of staffers are furloughed at the De

Democrats call for investigation into Trump’s iPhone use after a report that China is listening:Analysis | The Daily 202 I The Washington Post. By James Hohmann _________________________________________________________________________________ President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping visit the Great Hall of the People in Beijing last November. (Andrew Harnik/AP) With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve THE BIG IDEA: If Democrats win the House in two weeks, it’s a safe bet that one of the oversight hearings they schedule for early next year would focus on President Trump’s use of unsecured cellphones. The matter would not likely be pursued with anywhere near the gusto that congressional Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Leaders of the minority party have higher priorities . But Democratic lawmakers made clear Thursday morning that they will not ignore a New York Times report that Trump has refused to stop using iPhones in the White House, despite repeated warnings from U.S. intelligence offici
