DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Convicted Federal Fraudster Tracy Jedlicki will now wait until July 21st to find out how much time she’ll spend in federal prison — or if her guilty plea will result in a penalty that doesn’t involve lockup. Her sentencing was originally set for today.
As we first reported on April 28th, Jedlicki was indicted and later plead guilty to operating international boiler rooms. Her husband Jeffrey is named as a co-conspirator. He was convicted of a similar federal offense more than a decade ago and now faces 80 months in prison. He’s being held without bond. Prosecutors described the current crime with this official language:
“(Tracy) Jedlicki and her co-conspirators operated international boiler rooms in Panama and elsewhere which used high-pressure sales techniques to defraud individuals who believed they were investing substantial amounts of money in regulated financial products or markets, such as options in commodities and stocks. The majority of the victims targeted by these boiler rooms were located in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
Jedlicki and her co-conspirators laundered the fraud proceeds generated by the boiler rooms through several money laundering rings to overseas accounts; the launderers received a percentage of the funds they had moved. Jedlicki’s duties included, among other tasks, arranging travel for boiler room workers to the boiler room locations, calling victims while posing as an employee of a fake investment firm to set up loading calls for co-conspirators operating the boiler rooms, serving as a liaison between the boiler rooms and a money laundering organization, and reconciling payments between the boiler rooms and the money laundering organization. Jedlicki received a 2% referral fee for referring victims’ funds to a money laundering ring and used the funds to perpetuate the conspiracy and for her own personal enrichment. Jedlicki and her co-conspirators wired or caused to be wired victims’ funds in the approximate amount of $3,244,500 to money laundering accounts in furtherance of the wire fraud conspiracy.”
Federal documents obtained by BocaNewsNow.com do not include a sentencing recommendation for Tracy Jedlicki, 54. The federal government, however, is confiscating her home — valued at more than $1M. Prosecutors say it was obtained with ill gotten gains from the scam.
It is the second home in Seven Bridges confiscated by the United States Government. The home of chiropractor Richard Davidson was confiscated last year after he was sentenced for insurance fraud.
