Eric Dalius settles Saivian Ponzi securities fraud with SEC
Eric J. Dalius has reached a settlement with the SEC over Saivian securities fraud.
The news follows the Saivian defendants reentering negotiations with the SEC back in June.
As per a Joint Stipulation filed on August 9th;
On August 5, 2022, the Parties participated in a telephonic settlement conference … during which a settlement in principle was reached between the SEC and the Defendants other than Defendant Ryan Morgan Evans.
Defendants other than Ryan Evans in the SEC’s Saivian Ponzi case are Eric J. Dalius, Professional Realty Enterprises, Inc., Saivian LLC, Savings Network App LLC, Realty Share Network LLC.
Details of Dalius’ Saivian settlement are expected to be made public sometime over the next few months.
BehindMLM identified Saivian as a Ponzi scheme back in 2015. The SEC filed suit against Saivian in 2018, alleging Dalius and Evans ran a $165 million dollar Ponzi scheme.
While Saivian’s collapse marked the end of Dalius’ Ponzi scamming, Evans doubled down with Elamant.
Elamant is essentially a clone of Saivian, aimed primarily at African investors.
Despite staring down the barrel of a $100 million plus securities fraud lawsuit in the US, Morgan continues to commit securities fraud through Elamant.
US regulators have thus far not gone after Morgan for continuing to defraud consumers with Elamant. Whether that will change remains to be seen.
SimilarWeb traffic estimates for Elamant’s website suggests investor recruitment has collapsed.
Failing Ryan Evans reaching a settlement with the SEC, his Saivian securities fraud trial has been rescheduled for June 6th, 2023.
Update 8th February 2023 – Eric Dalius has settled his Saivian fraud case with the SEC for $24 million.
Well this is very disappointing. He got away with no punishment. He stole millions and is living the good life traveling the world rn.
Disgorgement and a civil penalty is the best outcome in a civil regulatory case.
Any updates to this? What where the penalties?
Next docket check is on the 21st.
I’m assuming nothing was done. It’s sad to see someone can commit crimes and steal so much money and not get punished.
