Man Who Scammed Tech Investors Faces 22 Years


An Illinois man is facing 22 years behind bars after pleading guilty in a $25 million scam in which he duped investors with a device apparently based on a Star Trek gadget.

 

Howard Leventhal even named his fraudulent technology after fictional Star Trek doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy.

 

The “McCoy Home Health Tablet” supposedly worked like a Star Trek “tricorder,” able to pick up readings on vital signs and instantly transmit them to doctors.

 

The pitch was bolstered with a statement from a Canadian health official, but prosecutors say that was a fake, just like the device itself.
