Sonja Anticevic May Need to Pay This Off in Kuna

SonjaAnticevic230The last we heard from Sonja Anticevic, a 60-something retired Croatian underwear seamstress living on a monthly pension of 1,600 kuna ($263), she was on her doorstep in the city of Omis face-to-face with reporters from the Associated Press. The reporters were asking her why, according to the SEC, $130,000 worth of speculative, out-of-the-money Reebok call options were purchased in an account in her name, and sold off at a profit of over $2 million.

Today, four years later, Anticevic is back in the news, and subject to a $5 million default judgment. Full details are available in this post on my Enforcement Action blog over at Compliance Week.
