Edward Campbell; phony SEAL goes to jail

| July 11, 2018

Another Pat sends us a link to the news that Edward I. Campbell, who we discussed nearly a year ago when he pleaded guilty to bilking his investment clients of over a million bucks, is on his way to prison. While he was taking their money he was pretending to be a Navy SEAL.

The Reynoldsburg man with his own investment firm always had a story for his nearly four dozen clients.

Edward I. Campbell, 41, said he was a former Navy SEAL with international business connections. He told investors his niece had been shot in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He promised big returns on investments and when there were delays, he told of how international catastrophes or some U.S. agency was holding things up.

It was all untrue.

“Campbell blatantly and repeatedly lied and violated the trust placed in him by the individuals who invested with him,” said Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, based in Columbus. “Besides falsely representing experience and expertise, he told contemptible lies about a tragic incident.”

In federal court Tuesday in Columbus, U.S. District Judge Michael H. Watson sentenced Campbell to five years in federal prison on money laundering and wire fraud charges. Campbell earlier had entered a plea agreement to the charges.

As part of the sentence, Campbell also agreed to pay $1,408,854 in restitution – the amount of money he stole from 44 investors between July 2011 and June 2013.

That phony SEAL training is going to come in handy in prison.

    Good. Always nice to see.

  4. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Lowlife shitbag coming to an appropriate life point, prison.

    Here’s hoping it remains a relevant five years for him long after the experience ends.

    Oh and, Fuck That Guy…

    • RGR 4-78 says:

      I bet he will get the point in the end.

    • Hondo says:

      Unless he’s one tough SOB, I hear that’s a distinct possibility in prison. Though I also hear that Federal prisons have less of that activity than state prisons and local jails.

  5. Red Forman says:

    He agreed to pay $1,408,854.00 in restitution?

    He’s gonna have to give a lot of blow jobs in prison to come up with that amount.

  6. SFC D says:

    He will soon have his SEAL broken

  7. USAF (Ret) says:

    He is going to putting on a lot of weight. At a quarter a pop that is almost 6 million. At least that way he will get in arrears for what he owes…Butt then again…

    • 26Limabeans says:

      He is going to have to back his way out of a corner. Daily.

    • Berliner says:

      I see what you did there…
      To help pass the time, his cellmates can engage him in a nightly game of cornhole. As a gracious host, I’m sure he’ll encourage them all to cum again.

  8. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    I wonder how soon Bubba & Thor will pop his cherry? That or he’ll be “Tiny” Tyrone’s cell

  9. ChipNASA says:

    5 years?
    Well it doesn’t seem like much but think about you having to do 1,800+ days in prison looking over your shoulder every day every hour.
    That’s a long FIGMO calendar

  10. 100E says:

    As a way of showing the “no man left behind” tradition, let him know we’re here for him. Send him books like “Mandingo”, which will get his butt kicked by our black bros., and a subscription to Gay Times Magazine, which will put him in touch with his feminine side.
    He’ll get a chance to use some of the Navy SEAL ‘Wang Chung’ he learned in hand to hand.

  11. When he gets out, bet his story will change too claims of “POW” status, in a place where his reputation is not known. Cause- shitheads,are goin’ to shithead

  12. Garold says:

    $1,408,854 in restitution. Damn, that’s a lot of money. How much does one earn making license plates in the pokie I wonder.

  13. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Maybe he can ask his relations who own the Campbell soup company for a loan if he is related. On a side note, I see the Soupy Sales are up.

  14. 5JC says:

    I always wonder what the endgame is with these fraudsters. Maybe they just don’t think that far ahead.

  15. AnotherPat says:

    Do ya think he will be telling his SEAL stories to his new housemates or relaying that his niece had been shot during the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting?

    You never know.
