04/03/09 Why aren’t these guys in jail? The Noel clan including the son in law’s are involved in all sorts of chicanery

Nobody Covers Greenwich Like The New York Times

Shortly before Bernard L. Madoff confessed to a Ponzi scheme that burned through tens of billions of dollars, partners of Fairfield Greenwich Group, one of Mr. Madoff’s biggest feeder funds, were on track to collect a combined $117 million in pay for 2008.

The estimated compensation figures were disclosed in an exhibit to a lawsuit filed Wednesday by Massachusetts securities regulators, who contend that Fairfield’s inadequate due diligence on Mr. Madoff’s operations amounted to a fraud on its investors.

The exhibit consists of spreadsheets attached to an e-mail that Daniel Lipton, Fairfield’s chief financial officer, apparently e-mailed to himself on Dec. 11, 2008 — the same day Mr. Madoff was arrested by authorities in connection with running a vast investment scheme.

Fairfield’s $7 billion Sentry funds were more than 95 percent invested with Mr. Madoff, but Fairfield also managed billions of dollars in other funds, all of which performed poorly last year. Even before Mr. Madoff’s arrest, the firm had already conducted two rounds of layoffs.

Nevertheless, Jeffrey Tucker and Walter Noel, Fairfield’s co-founders, were each expected to earn about $19 million in 2008, the document shows. In 2007, before the markets went south, both men made over $30 million. Andrés Piedrahita, the managing partner of Fairfield Greenwich and Mr. Noel’s son-in-law, was to make over $28 million for 2008. In 2007, Mr. Piedrahita took home over $45 million.

Massachusetts wants to force Fairfield to disgorge the fees it earned from its relationship with Mr. Madoff; a Fairfield spokesman declined to comment Wednesday.

At the top, an excerpt from the spreadsheet filed with the Massachusetts lawsuit. The initials at the top, in descending order, refer to Mr. Piedrahita, Mr. Tucker and Mr. Noel.

NY brothers arrested in undercover sting by Wilton police

The Hour

A pair of brothers were arrested this week in an undercover sting conducted by the Wilton police and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. Travis Joyce, 26, and Adam Joyce, 23, of Babylon, N.Y., were arrested and charged with one count of larceny in the second degree, exploitation of the elderly, two counts of violation of the Connecticut Home Improvement Act, two counts of tax permit violations, one count of reckless endangerment one count of operation without a trade license, one count of trade name violation and one count of failure to obtain a building permit.

"Unfortunately, Fairfield County attracts the attention of many out of state contractors (which are unlicensed or unregistered)," said Jerry Farrell, commissioner of the Department of Consumer Protection at a Thursday morning press conference.

He said that both out of state and "homegrown" unregistered contractor tend to prey on families in the region.....

....Greenwich police received a similar complaint, said the Department of Consumer Protection. "This happens all the time," said Boucher, who noted that such ...

04/03/09 Greenwich Residents Data At The Greenwich Office Of Bank America Stolen By Witon Resident Jeremy Donefe.



JEREMY DONEFE'S CLIENTS JUST MIGHT WANT TO GET A PEN AND WRITE THESE INSTRUCTIONS DOWN: Immediately Contact Banc America In Greenwich And Demand That Their Account Numbers And Passwords Are Changed, Before Their Accounts Are Liquidated And Transferred To Some Nigerian Bank.

Any Greenwich Banc Of America Client That Did Switch To The Greenwich Morgan Stanley Office Should Cancel And Reverse The Transfer, Because Their New Morgan Stanley Account Number May Also Be On Jeremy Donefe's Home Computer Under "Cake Recipes".

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP: Greenwich Banc of America's Office reports that a month before resigning, Wilton resident Jeremy Donefer e-mailed Greenwich residents account information from his work computer to his home computer.

His first attempt - with "Hi Momma" in the subject line - failed, according to the papers. But he succeeded emailing Greenwich account details in a second attempt with the words "Cake Recipes" in the subject line, the company said.

Apparently, The New Employee Of The Greenwich Morgan Stanley Office Was Clueless Naive By Thinking "Cake Recipes" Would Cover Up The Electronic Trail He Would Leave In Using His Bank Of America Computer.

Later Banc America Says: "Defendants sent out a "false and misleading solicitation" to get them to switch"

Defendants serviced customers with $371 million in assets under management. In 2008, they generated more than $3.85 million in revenues

Banc of America says four defectors misused customer information
Lower Hudson Journal news

In a case that demonstrates the fierce competition between financial services giants, Banc of America Investment Services Inc. says four former advisers used confidential customer information to try and get those investors to switch their accounts to Morgan Stanley & Co. Inc.

Banc of America is asking a federal judge in White Plains to issue an injunction that would stop the advisers from using any Banc of America customer information to solicit business. The company also wants Judge Cathy Seibel to order the advisers to return any documents or computer records they took.

Two of the advisers, John Pasacreta of White Plains and John Rotando of Cold Spring, worked in Banc of America's Scarsdale office. Those two, along with Long Island resident Jordan Samuelson, submitted "virtually identical" resignation letters the afternoon of March 20 indicating they were immediately going to work for Morgan Stanley in Purchase, Banc of America said in court papers filed this week.

The fourth, Jeremy Donefer, a resident of Wilton, Conn., resigned a week later from his job in Banc of America's Greenwich, Conn., office, according to the lawsuit. He now works at Morgan Stanley's Greenwich office......

.....sent thousands of Banc of America customers "account transfer packets" dated the day of their resignation, the company said. The cover letter told the customers that "As you have requested" there were account transfer forms enclosed, Banc of America said.......

Long Island Resident And Morgan Stanley Employee Jordan Samuelson

....Samuelson, who worked in Queens, even solicited Banc of America employee Michael Rotunno, a vice president and senior investigator, Banc of America said

....Samuelson and Pasacreta arranged to have calls to their former Banc of America phone numbers forwarded to their personal cell phones. On March 23, a Banc of America senior vice president called Samuelson's former number at the company and Samuelson answered. The executive called again and got a voice message indicating he had reached Samuelson at Morgan Stanley....


.....Morgan Stanley is not named as a defendant, though Banc of America said at least one of the defendants "with the assistance of Morgan Stanley" prepared a mass mailing to be sent to Banc of America customers informing the customers of their departure and suggesting the customers move their money to their new employer......

Greenwich Resident Michael Parrotta Is Charged With Criminal Attempt At Homicide, First-Degree Assault, First-Degree Reckless Endangerment, Violation Of A Protective Order And Carrying A Dangerous Weapon - Bail Is Set At A Million

50 Some Year Old Woman Stabbed Four Times In The Chest And Numerous Times In The Abdomen In Front Of 18 Year Old Son.

A Greenwich woman was stabbed repeatedly in the chest and abdomen Thursday night by her estranged husband, police said.

The victim, whom police did not identify, suffered a collapsed lung and was in stable condition today at Stamford Hospital, police said.

Lt. Richard Cochran said Parrotta's wife had arrived in her car to pick up their son, when Parrotta approached the driver's-side window and stabbed her repeatedly with a Phillips-head screwdriver that had been sharpened to a point....

.....Parrotta, wearing a white jumpsuit issued by police, who retained his blood-spattered clothes for evidence, was arraigned Friday in state Superior Court in Stamford.

The prosecutor, Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss, asked Judge William Wenzel to raise Parrotta's bond to $5 million, citing the 2007 domestic violence incident.

Weiss said Parrotta had been released from custody following the October 2007 incident and a restraining order was issued, prohibiting him from coming in contact with his wife -- an order police say he violated Friday.....
.....Police are still investigating the stabbing and have obtained a search warrant for Parrotta's car and house, according to Cochran.....

Discussion of 2009-10 Operating Budget Reductions
In March, the Board of Estimate and Taxation reduced the Board of
Education's 2009-10 Budget request by $1 million. The BOE's proposed
Budget represented only a 1.6% increase over the 2008-09 Budget,
reflecting approximately $3 million of reductions from the level services
budget, including cuts of more than 20 certified staff positions (FTEs).
The Board must now identify at least another $1 million in reductions.

In anticipation of this reduction, school and District administrators met
in January to identify areas for consideration based on the goal of
minimizing the impact on teaching and learning. The Board reviewed this
list at its Feb. 26 meeting. On April 2nd, the Board reviewed a revised
proposed list of reductions. They will take action on the reductions after
the RTM votes on the budget in May. The RTM has the authority to reduce
the budget, but may not add to the budget. For more information on the
budget process and for budget documents please visit the web site at:
