Gov: Fraudster raised money pitching Giuliani as firm’s face

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors say a fraudster facing sentencing next week lured one investor by bragging that Rudy Giuliani had agreed to be the face of a fraud-busting company that was a fraud itself. The revelation was included in court papers filed late Monday as prosecutors urged a judge to sentence David Correia next week to about three years in prison. The Florida man has pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit wire fraud and making false statements to the Federal Election Commission. His lawyer asked that he serve no prison time. But prosecutors said he deserves years in prison for a fraud that cheated seven individuals of over $2 million. They say he also doesn’t seem contrite.last_img read more

English FA global betting ban comes into effect

first_imgThe Football Association’s global betting ban affecting players, officials and other club employees has come into effect.The new regulations ban football club employees with teams in the top eight levels of English football from placing bets on any matches and leagues worldwide.Previous rules only banned players from betting on competitions their teams are participating in, with Premier League players Dan Gosling and Andros Townsend among those to face disciplinary action for breaches.On top of that, the game has been hit by a number of match-fixing scandals with former Premier League player Sam Sodje among those arrested during investigations into corruption within the sport.The FA has released a film to clubs to explain the new rules, and general scretary Alex Horne says they will take away any grey areas.Horne told Sky Sports News: “What’s interesting is that these rules are easier to police so quite simply, if you play above Step Four (Isthmian League, Southern League, Northern League) you don’t bet on football. “It’s a much easier message to convey, to communicate and to understand if you are a player, a coach, a manager or a referee.”The previous rules were possibly a little bit open to interpretation because it was around the competitions that your club played in.”It’s a simple rule. It isn’t because we believe we have a cultural problem or an issue but it’s a perceptive issue betting on football by people playing in football.”It’s just part of our war on match-fixing. Integrity of the game in England is crucial for us and it’s what makes the English game so exceptional. It is completely trustworthy and we want to do everything we can to keep match-fixing out of our game.”last_img read more
