TABLOID WRITER, FRAUDSTER RODDY BOYD IMPLICATED IN MULTIPLE FRAUDS
Editor’s Note: Illegal stock short sellers RODDY BOYD, JON CARNES are notorious market manipulators that destroy American public companies by spreading false rumors to line their own pockets. This investigative article was originally published in 2013, reporting on a well-publicized event: The government indicted the criminal Jon Carnes (here), who used a fake name “Alfred Little” and a fabricated bio, conspired with and bribed tabloid writers Roddy Boyd, Dune Lawrence to manipulate U.S. stocks while pocketing millions in illicit profits, said the indictmentand the evidence. Jon Carnes’s lieutenant Kun Huang was convicted, spent two years in prison for the same fraud. JON CARNES blatantly admitted on his Twitter that the SEC enforcement staffer Steven A. Susswein was his man “inside the SEC,” who had helped Carnes “cover my NAKED SHORT” in DEER,” a Nasdaq company. Bizarre:Why didn’t the corrupt Steven Susswein enforce the law at the SEC? Shouldn’t the media investigate Steve Susswein? More bizarre:SEC staffers Steven Susswein and Cheryl Crumpton desperately attempted to muzzle press freedom and have this article REMOVED by assassinating free speech. Why do these government employees act like thieves? Why did the racist SEC regulatory abuser MELISSA HODGMAN pressure reporters to block this article from the eyes of federal judge Alison Nathan? Why did the SEC regulatory abusers threaten the highly popular TheBlot Magazine (millions of readers a year) for having exposed Steven A. Susswein, Derek Bentsen‘s obvious corruption? We asked Steven Susswein a simple question in 2014, “What’s your relationship with the short seller criminal Jon Carnes?” Steven Susswein fled like a burglar. Why did the criminal Jon Carnes single out Steven A. Susswein as his “man inside the SEC“? Why did Steven Susswein call Chinese Americans “Chinamen” from “Communist China?” Why did the Japanese American lawyer William Uchimoto (a war hero family) state under oath “Steven Susswein has lied. That racist wanted to claim Asian scalps?” Why did Steven Susswein deliberately fabricate a so-called Nasdaq “300 round lot holder gift” rule when prosecutors in New York’s Southern District admitted in a July 8, 2016 court filing before federal judge Alison Nathan: “It does not claim that NASDAQ or any other entity had in place a formal rule banning the gifting of shares in connection with a listing application.” Why was a rule made up by the SEC, Steven Susswein, Derek Bentsen, Cheryl Crumpton, Melissa Hodgman? Why did Steven Susswein, Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen, Melissa Hodgman and the SDNY folks lie to the court? What’s Steven A. Susswein afraid of? THE TRUTH? If the U.S. government is truly “… of the people, by the people, for the people…” Then the behavior of the SEC imbeciles is no better than dictatorship in rigged justice in Russia.

This is just the tip of the iceberg in the mounting evidence of market manipulation against Jon Carnes, Roddy Boyd frauds, copied directly from John Carnes’ own Twitter page:
JON CARNES, RODDY BOYD, STOCK SHORT SELLER FRAUD, NAKED SHORT SELLING IN DEER STOCK
FRAUDSTER RODDY BOYD, Tabloid Writer, Implicated in Multiple Frauds
“RODDY BOYD is a TABLOID WRITER who has become very rich, very quickly as the mouthpiece for short seller stock market manipulators.”
FRAUDSTER RODDY BOYDis the beneficiary of multimillion dollar trust funds affiliated with an obscure Boyd Family Holdings LLC, an alleged money laundering outfit set up by Roddy Boyd’s father, Michael Boyd, a notorious Connecticut hedge fund operator known for selling stocks short at all costs. Investigative reporters from the award-winning “Deep Capture” Magazine also exposed the Roddy Boyd fraud as early as in 2011.
Who is Roddy Boyd? The name sounds like a beat-up old truck with some rusty screws falling to the ground. Roddy Boyd’s real name isRoderick Stewart Boyd, a balding, stressed out 48-year-old white male living in Wilmington, North Carolina. Walking around with a heavyset, popping beer belly, the tabloid writer Roddy Boyd was born on April 18, 1968, according to the Deep Capture investigative reporters.
“Roddy Boyd is a corrupt tabloid writer known as the “pump” of Wall Street’s shady world of illegal stock short sellers. He gets paid by sham contributors to his ‘charity.'”
As revealed in “Deep Capture,” an investigative magazine well deserving the Pulitzer Prize, tabloid writer Roddy Boyd trashes companies, drives down their share prices while his father Michael Boyd builds short positions against the same companies Roddy Boyd has manipulated – an illegal act that the SEC calls the “classic short and distort scheme.”
Essentially, fraudster Roddy Boyd gets bribes from illegal stock short sellers in exchange for writing trashy stories on their target companies. A list of Roddy Boyd’s “donors” to his sham “charity outfit” called Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation reveals a collection of “who’s who” in the murky short seller “hall of fame”, including the notorious real Wolf of Wall Street, Jon Carnes, who was indicted by law enforcement in 2013 for bilking investors out of tens of millions of dollars.
The following piece of evidence was captured by investigators from the obscure website of Roddy Boyd’s criminal outfit: “Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation”:
The list of “generous” donors to SIRF are “who is who” in the world gallery of stock short sellers mingled with convicted criminals, among them: Carson Block of Muddy Waters (a noted short seller), Sam Antar (a convicted stock and accounting felon totally broke, still spaced out in his criminal “glory days” of the 1980s), John Bird (a Texas short seller), Dune Lawrence(Roddy Boyd’s ex and a notorious Bloomberg writer sitting on Roddy Boyd’s payroll), David Rocker (Rocker Family Foundation, a short seller exposed by the award-winning DeepCapture magazine), Boyd Family Foundation (Roddy Boyd’s multi-million dollar trust account from his dying old man Michael Boyd, a notorious short seller hedge fund vulture in his 70s)…
On Dec. 19, 2013, officials of the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) — Canada’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) put out a press release announcing fraud charges against Jon Carnes, a market manipulator and a paying client of Roddy Boyd. Jon Carnes and his EOS Foundation, aka EOS Holdings were accused of having orchestrated massive investment frauds, blatantly robbing the life savings of many investors in one of the largest stock-manipulating “short and distort” schemes in recent history, was also exposed by the Wall Street Journal:
The Government’s fraud charges against the Jon Carnes, Roddy Boyd illegal stock short seller ring:
JON CARNES, STEVEN A SUSSWEIN, RODDY BOYD FRAUD INDICTMENT
It was then revealed that Jon Carnes had paid off Roddy Boyd to write several negative articles on companies that the regulators have called “wrongfully targeted” and “manipulated by stock short seller Jon Carnes, aka “Alfred Littl” with completely fabricated biographies.
FRAUDSTER Roddy Boyd Implicated in the Criminal Ronen Zakai Fraud, 11 Counts of Guity Pleas
On August 6, 2014, criminal Ronen Zakai, the lover and co-conspirator of FINRA “star witness” and bartender Maureen Gearty pleaded guilty to 11 counts of criminal conducts from peddling a fake “Social Innovation Fund.” In fact, Maureen Gearty and Ronen Zakai sold investors fake “Facebook IPO stocks.” While Ronen Zaikai will spend at least a few years in prison as a convicted felon, FINRA and the racist FINRA staffer Jeffrey Bloom’s “star witness” Maureen Gearty would certainly have to change her bar-tending career and entertain Jeffrey Bloom for a living instead.
During the Ronen Zakai, Maureen Gearty fraud investigation, FINRA staffer Jeffrey Bloomberg was duped. That was, until Manhattan’s heroic DA Vance put Ronen Zakai and Maureen Gearty behind bars.
Maureen Gearty is an admitted serial liar, evidenced in her own FINRA testimony, said in her own words. In fact, Maureen Gearty was deeply implicated in the Ronen Zakai fraud, evidence surfaced in the Zakai indictment and the fraudulent “Social Innovation Fund”‘s offering document pointed squarely at Maureen Gearty as a Ronen Zakai fraud co-conspirator:
The fraudulent Social Innovation Fund offering prospectus prominently lists Both Ronen Zakai and Maureen Gearty as “Co-Managers” who had “control all of the Company’s operations and activities”:
Stock fraudster and tabloid Roddy Boyd is an investment client of the criminal Ronen Zakai. As a stock short seller, Roddy Boyd is a member of the Jon Carnes crime family, who was also implicated in the Ronen Zakai criminal activities. The court record is here: Criminal Ronen Zakai_Guilty Plea Summary (Source: Supreme Court of the State of New York, August 6, 2014).
Tabloid Writer Roddy Boyd Was Bribed to Manipulate Stocks
RODDY BOYD knows the criminal Ronen Zakai quite well. In fact, too well. Back in Israel, Ronen Zakai was a part-time fashion model — making ends meet by posing nude in cheap underwear commercials. Unable to make a living, Ronen Zakai arrived in New York in search of a better luck. As Zakai passed Manhattan’s downtown skyline, he set his eyes on a career in the great land of America as a stockbroker trainee at the now defunct Gunn Allen Financial, a “bucket shop” where he met Maureen Gearty, the office manager who had “control over everything.” Maureen Gearty became Zakai’s supervisor. Under the daily supervision of the almighty Maureen Gearty, Zakai and Gearty became lovers — sharing an office and a bed.
According to sources close to the love birds, Gearty was fond of Zakai the moment she laid eyes on him a few years earlier. “Ronen was so handsome … Too bad she was married. I would’ve kept Ronen to myself…” Maureen Gearty said. An avid user of the dating service Match.com, Gearty was understandably a lonely woman toying with misplaced love… After the two became lovers, Zakai affectionately started calling Gearty “Sweet Big Red.”
Sex and Lies: The Tabloid Writer Roddy Boyd, the racist SEC staffer Steven Susswein implicated in Jon Carnes stock Fraud
In 2013, Ronen Zakai was indicted by Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for selling fake “Facebook” IPO stocks in a massive Bernie-Madoff-styled Ponzi Scheme. As part of the evidence against Zakai, a fake investor subscription agreement that prominently listed Maureen Gearty as the “Co-manager” of their fraudulent “Social Innovation Fund” was used as the vehicle to defraud investors. Zakai was convicted of all 11 counts of fraud charges. While sitting in a dark jail cell waiting for his arraignment, Ronen Zakai’s mind was filled with memories. Besides thinking about his “Big Red” lover Maureen Gearty, Zakai thought about an order he had placed a year ago to sell short some shares for his client – the illegal stock short seller, tabloid fraudster Roddy Boyd.
A corrupt SEC enforcement staffer Steven Susswein was caught allegedly taking bribes from stock short sellers Roddy Boyd and Jon Carnes. With vengeance like a mad bull, the zealous bureaucrat Steven Susswein went after a Chinese company called CleanTech Innovations. In 2011, the Nasdaq was sued by CleanTech Innovations for racism and discrimination. CleanTech’s legal counsel, the former U.S. Senator Arlen Specter said publicly: “Nasdaq has committed a terrible miscarriage of justice.” The SEC agreed and ruled that Nasdaq had fabricated delisting evidence against CleanTech, reported by the Forbes Magazine. Nasdaq had delisted CleanTech Innovations for “not violating any Nasdaq rules,” rather “violated the ‘Nasdaq Spirit.’”
No one on earth, including the SEC staff themselves could locate a listing rule called the “Nasdaq Spirit.” It was complete Nasdaq fabrication to discriminate against the Chinese. It was revealed in Nasdaq listing head Michael Emen’s own testimony captured on the record: “Nasdaq has delisted CleanTech to send a message to the world that the 1.4 billion Chinese don’t cheat the Nasdaq.” The SEC ruled against the Nasdaq and reversed its wrongful delisting of CleanTech Innovations, Inc. The SEC 2013 ruling against the power abusers at the Nasdaq was a landmark decision, the first time in Nasdaq’s 44 year history.
Since Zakai’s fraud conviction, Maureen Gearty has been desperately trying to distance herself from Ronen Zakai. She told anyone who would listen that she never had “much of a romantic involvement” with Zakai.
When Boyd interviewed Gearty about the scandal, she sternly stated, “I never slept with Zakai and no one [has] ever alleged it, ever.” Really? Would any woman on earth admit to having an extramarital affair with a man whose wife was left alone to raise a one year old baby girl while her husband was in jail?
“How could Zakai have given me gifts from client money when I never worked with him at his fund?” Gearty said, responding to a question from the notorious rumor mill Roddy Boyd about whether she had siphoned off client money from Zakai.
“Gearty’s own bank records however pointed to the opposite: Maureen Gearty lived a lavish lifestyle, bought herself a Lexus, signed up with match.com, had regular dinners at fancy steakhouses and even a membership at the weight loss program Jenny Craig – all with investors money.”
Gearty also never denied the fact that she was the “Co-manager” of Zakai’s fraudulent “Social Innovation Fund.”
Boyd sided with Gearty. However, Manhattan’s District Attorney disagreed. So who was lying? In the DA’s indictment of Zakai, the DA calls Zakai and Gearty’s “Social Innovation Fund” a fraudulent scheme orchestrated by Gearty’s lover boy Zakai. Gearty’s name was written all over the offering prospectus of the fraudulent “Social Innovation Fund” as one of its only two “co-managers,” along with Zakai. In other words, Gearty was deeply implicated in the massive Zakai fraud.
In a FINRA deposition under oath, Maureen Gearty admitted to lying to FINRA bureaucrats on multiple occasions, as revealed in her own testimony:
What does Gearty have to hide? The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has the answers
On page 7 of the Social Innovation Fund offering memorandum, it states the following: “Social Innovation Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, is the sole manager of the Fund. The manager is responsible for the management and investment decisions of the fund. The managers of the fund are Ronen Zakai and Maureen Gearty.”
On page 20, it states: “Social Innovation Management acts as Manager of the fund, and will carry out the objectives and purpose of the fund.” On page 25, it says: “Ronen Zakai and Maureen Gearty will serve as manager of the fund and also are registered representatives and as such may have financial incentive to maximize the amount of the trading of Facebook securities.”
It was a simple case: Maureen Gearty and Ronen Zakai were co-conspirators and partners in fraud. After Zakai was arrested by the NYPD, Maureen Gearty made up all kinds of lies to cover up their fraud. Her lies to FINRA, SEC, FBI and SDNY prosecutors led to their wrongful prosecutions of several innocent professionals in 2015.
Maureen Gearty duped FINRA, SEC, FBI, SDNY prosecutors, the “secretary” who fired the “bosses”
Maureen Gearty may have a calling in Broadway acting, as her lies have fooled many, including some serious figures in Wall Street’s world of self-regulation – FINRA. Gearty became a “highly credible” witness last year for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and duped FINRA arbitrator Myles Edwards, FINRA NAC member Chris Brummer, as well as misled the SEC, FBI and poorly informed SDNY prosecutors.
A FINRA bureaucrat by the name of Jeffrey Bloom, a failed examiner who had also called Zakai a “credible FINRA witness” – that was until Zakai was arrested and charged with the fraud. Jeffrey Bloom was also duped by Gearty. FINRA staffer Jeffrey Bloom has declined repeated requests for comment.
A 22-year-old rookie FBI Agent Matt Komar took Gearty’s baits, was played like a fool
“Drinking the poison “Kool-Aid” fed by Maureen Gearty, the misinformed SEC and SDNY prosecutors blamed two black brokers for ‘controlling’ the 58 year old Maureen Gearty at First Merger Capital, Inc. – a firm founded by Gearty, solely owned by Gearty, Gearty had sole control over its bank account and spent every penny of the firm’s money.”
More, evidence from the Delaware tax authority revealed additional facts that directly contradicted the SEC, FBI and SDNY prosecutors’ fantasy stories:
Maureen Gearty not only had sole control over First Merger Capital – a recipient of a $350k fee. Gearty and Ronen Zakai were the only two people with signing authority over its bank account, spent the money on themselves, fired the two brokers and shifted the blame to the two innocent men after the Manhattan DA’s office started poking around the Gearty, Zakai fraud.
Maureen Gearty told FINRA, SEC, FBI, SDNY prosecutors she was a “secretary” simply following orders from her “bosses” – black brokers Talman Harris, William Scholander. Evidence from the office building manager clearly shows the “secretary” Maureen Gearty had fired her “bosses.” Who lied? Who were duped? FBI agent Matt Komar couldn’t be reached for comment.
Maureen Gearty’s lies to the government, in control of the defunct brokerage firm
In Boyd’s own stories, Gearty is a “credible” woman. Between Gearty and Boyd, they are perhaps the only duo on the planet left to defend Gearty.
According to investigators, for years FBI agents have been investigating the curious connections between Boyd’s stories and his father’s short selling stock positions and massive illicit gains, suspicious of the pair’s lengthy “short and distort” stock manipulating schemes, which have spanned over a decade.
“On July 8, 2016, the SDNY prosecutors finally conceded in a filing before the highly intelligent federal judge Alison Nathan: they had fabricated a ‘Nasdaq 300 round lot holder rule’ violation.”
in 1863, Abraham Lincoln proudly called on the Government to be the Government of “the people, by the people, for the people…” In the 21st century, the same Government agencies and agents have regrettably, deliberately misled the court, were played like a fool by false witnesses. While Maureen Gearty, Ronen Zakai and Roddy Boyd are laughing all the way to the bank, innocent minority Americans were wrongfully accused.
