A former top executive of Medical Capital Holdings Inc., a private placement-turned-Ponzi scheme that destroyed dozens of broker-dealers, is heading to prison.

Joseph J. Lampariello, 62, the one-time president and chief operating officer of Medical Capital Holdings, was sentenced on Monday to 10 years and one month in federal prison by U.S. district judge David O. Carter. In addition to the prison term, Mr. Lampariello was ordered to pay close to $40 million in restitution to investors who had lost millions of dollars.

Medical Capital Holdings was a medical receivables financing company that operated in southern California. Raising money through a network of independent broker-dealers, the company oversaw funds that were intended to purchase account receivables from accredited medical providers, make secured loans and provide money for general operating expenses.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
