In January of 2009, Anthony began writing a series of articles questioning the timing of Heartland Payment Systems CEO’s 2009 stock sales that occurred during the same period as a massive network breach was reported to have occurred. One Month later, the SEC announced an investigation into those sales, and Anthony’s articles were later cited as Scienter Evidence in an investor initiated class action lawsuit (See Items 117-119 from HEARTLAND PAYMENT SYSTEMS, INC. SECURITIES LITIGATION http://scas.issproxy.com/pdf/30981cmp.pdf ).
Anthony has worked as a consultant to senior members of product development, secondary and capital markets from the largest financial institutions in the country, and he had a front row seat to the bursting of the credit bubble.
