Springsteen Scammer Caught

The British Ponzi scammer who once targeted Bruce Springsteen has finally been tracked down in Los Angeles. Rodney Tringham was wanted by the FBI, the Inland Revenue, the French police and the Triads, and will face charges for a $14 million Ponzi scheme that funded his glamorous L.A. lifestyle. He promised returns of 30 percent a year with his sham company, Finbar Securities Corp. Springsteen won damages from Tringham in 1998 for selling two unauthorized CDs of his music. The scammer disappeared quickly after the trial.
