Broker Kosta Kovachev was charged Tuesday with wire fraud in a criminal complaint unsealed in federal court in Manhattan. It was not immediately clear who will represent him in court.
The complaint accused Kovachev of posing as the comptroller for a developer whose offices were used to convince a hedge fund to buy a worthless investment.
Earlier this month, lawyer Marc Dreier was accused of causing losses of at least $380 million by scamming hedge funds into buying the worthless securities.
As the head of Dreier LLP, Dreier commanded more than 200 attorneys.
He remains jailed without bail.
