One-time East Village resident Brian Kim even appeared on CNBC twice as an analyst and to hawk his company, Liquid Capital Management. Instead, Kim, 35, pocketed investors’ money for himself and created fake monthly performance statements showing bogus gains.

Kim used the millions to make car payments, take trips to Atlantic City and Vermont and on shopping sprees at Coach and Barneys. He faces 25 years in prison.
