  • creating two false bank accounts in the names of his clients;
  • falsifying documents to open the false bank accounts;
  • causing withdrawals to be made from client funds to the false bank accounts and misappropriating client funds; and
  • impersonating his clients to attempt to obtain access to funds in the second false bank account.
