Names, details, convictions of modern gold fixers
Amazing how many fines and how much jail time gets allocated to the people who don't exist that never do anything.

Some of the other monsters are..
Navinder Sarao erased $1 trillion in the 2010 flash crash. Anyone remember having money to weather the storm, then having it all taken away? Anyone get $35 silver and suddenly was $15? This bastard right here.
Michael Coscia spent 3 years in prison for spoofing. "In a move that will have commodities traders on high alert, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of Michael Coscia, who was sentenced to three years in prison after a federal jury found the former trader guilty of spoofing and commodities fraud." 
Andre Flotron only paid $100k in fines.
Jitesh Thakkar. Jitesh Thakkar and Edge Financial Technologies, Inc. – a company Mr. Thakkar founded and for which he served as president – agreed to terms with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Enforcement to settle the CFTC’s enforcement action against them. However, none of the terms have been publicized. The conspiracy that doesn't exist runs deep.
WHAT IS WORSE, their day job for wages is more important than all of your wealth and all your coin collections and stacks. They laugh at you and launch disinformation campaigns to gaslight you and confuse you. The goal is to exhaust, overload and muddy the waters until you have nothing.
The lightest of scraping reveals phone numbers, social media profiles, family photos, landline numbers, business addresses, wives maiden names, business associates, work histories, resumes, CV, everything. Vacation homes. Their operational security tells me how much they never cared about being busted.

(Bloomberg) -- Prosecutors behind a sweeping U.S. crackdown on market “spoofing” scored a big win Friday when former Deutsche Bank AG traders Cedric Chanu and James Vorley were convicted of fraud for manipulating gold and silver prices. A federal jury in Chicago, after three days of deliberations, concluded Chanu and Vorley made bogus trade orders between 2008 and 2013 to illegally influence precious metals markets.
The star witness at the trial was their former Deutsche Bank coworker, David Liew, who told the jury he learned from Chanu and Vorley how to use spoof trades to manipulate prices. Liew faces his own criminal charges and agreed to work with the government.
Transcripts of messages the two traders sent show they knew what they were doing was wrong, Young said. In one instance, Vorley wrote: “This spoofing is annoying me. It’s illegal for a start."
Since anti-spoofing laws passed under the Dodd-Frank financial reforms a decade ago, the U.S. has prosecuted about a dozen criminal cases, including Navinder Sarao, the British day trader linked to the 2010 “flash crash” that erased $1 trillion in market value.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission also has stepped up civil complaints and reached many settlements, including a $30 million deal with Deutsche Bank in 2018. JPMorgan Chase & Co. is poised to pay close to $1 billion to resolve market manipulation investigations by U.S. authorities into its trading of metals futures and Treasury securities, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.
In 2015, Michael Coscia was convicted in Chicago and sentenced to three years in prison. In 2018, Andre Flotron was acquitted after a federal judge in Connecticut threw out most of the charges on the grounds that the case should have been brought in Chicago, where the trading occurred. Last year, the case against Chicago programmer Jitesh Thakkar, the first non-trader prosecuted under anti-spoofing laws.
