Paul Ricky Mata, who worked as a financial advisor, was sentenced to 14 years in prison and ordered to pay $12.6 million in restitution following his guilty plea on charges related to his fraudulent solicitation of customers for investment in his companies including Secured Capital, which he claimed offered guaranteed returns through investments in “government-backed tax liens,” “asset-backed deed certificates,” and distressed commercial and residential properties.  In fact, Mata, who concealed his long history of disciplinary action by regulators, used investor funds to pay his personal expenses.  USAO CD Cal
