A Red Bank man will spend more than five years (63 months) in prison after being sentenced in Newark federal court for securities fraud where he tried to illegally haul in more than $2.8-million dollars from investors, according to U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger.

In December 2015, 55-year-old Mark Marchi was a manager at Precipio Capital LLC, which in followed a similar career stop at Global Alliance Capital, LLC. where he went to investors to ask for investments and then stopped the operations of that company and ended up moving over the account representation to his new company, according to Sellinger, and told the investors to invest there instead as well.

The theft, fraud part of it all came when he used the $2.8--million he hauled in from investment funds and used it for things like paying back Global Alliance investors and then using the rest on himself while telling a lie to investors that their money was being invested and went so far as to give them falsified records, including trading records, performance reports, and K-1s.
