Bloomfield Township police are looking for anyone who also may have been duped by a man who is charged with lying about being a securities investor and taking $143,000 from a woman.
Police said the family of a 72-year-old called with concerns regarding an investor who said he was with JAC Investments LLC and had convinced the woman to give him money. A five-month investigation into the alleged investor, Sam Sesi, revealed he wasn't registered as a security broker or agent. The victim's family went so far as to plug Sesi's name into an internet search and his name appeared on the website RipoffReport.com.
Police said he talked about being a man of God to get close to investors.
Sesi has been charged with violating the Securities Act, a 10-year felony.
He turned himself in on Aug. 21 and has since posted bond and was released. He will be back in court later this month.
The Bloomfield Township Police would like to speak with anyone who may have invested with Sesi or JAC Investments.
