Here's A Photo Of Ex-KPMG Exec Allegedly Getting Cash For Insider Tips

Business Insider

Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles have filed criminal charges against former KPMG partner Scott London.

KPMG recently fired London, for allegedly leaking non-public information on Herbalife and Sketchers. London is said to have tipped off a third party, which the SEC alleges is his friend Bryan Shaw. Shaw reportedly made over $1.2 million trading off those tips.

Now CNBC has tweeted an image from the SEC complaint that seems to show London  allegedly receiving one of many $5,000 payments for the information from Shaw. CNBC reports that London typically got 10 percent of Shaw's profits.

An SEC press release said Shaw gave London at least $50,000 in cash, a Rolex watch, jewelry, meals and tickets to entertainment.
