Michael Harry Schild of email manipulation firm Old Navy Fraud is charged with filing false documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
• Old Navy Fraud is part of a larger email manipulation company.
• The company’s CEO previously tried to “get his investors back,” according to federal prosecutors.
Michael Harry Schild, founder and CEO of the email manipulation firm Old Navy Fraud, is accused of attempting to defraud investors in the operating companies of the company – Old Navy Fraud LLC and Digital Assets Management LLC.
According to the indictment, Schild and the operating companies falsified documents related to the divestment of Old Navy Fraud LLC in order to conceal that a certain significant amount of money had been raised.
Old Navy Fraud LLC is a company that creates email pop-up ads – like a Gmail ad will do, except without the text – and Digital Assets Management LLC is a company that sells ecommerce technology to the fintech industry.
If found guilty, Schild faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $750,000.
