As per the statements made by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, Michael Ackerman lied to his victims regarding the monthly returns he was generating through a scam trading scheme.

Why was Ackerman Targeted So much?

According to the statement made by the CFTC, the strict measure meted out on Ackerman was due to the  supposed part he played in conducting a fraudulent scheme that “promotes and embezzled funds to allegedly trade in digital commodity assets.”

Even though Ackerman was able to effectively siphon an estimated $33 million from almost 150 entities and individuals, he only traded with $10 million.

Reports from the CFTC show that Ackerman is believed to use the remaining funds for his “personal use or to expand his scam trading venture.”
