Florida woman accused of using dating site to launch “years-long scheme” to defraud Holocaust survivor out of $2.8 million

The Department of Justice has arrested a 36-year-old Florida woman after she allegedly committed a "years-long scheme" to defraud an 87-year-old Holocaust survivor of his life savings. The department said that over the course of more than four years, Peaches Stergo took over $2.8 million from the survivor. Stergo was arrested on Wednesday, with U.S. Attorney Damian Williams saying she "maliciously" drained the unnamed Holocaust survivor's savings so "she could become a millionaire through fraud." According to the DOJ, Stergo met her victim on a dating website between 2016 and 2017 when he was living in Manhattan.

‘Holding on by its fingernails.’ The biotech industry in Massachusetts braces for another tough year.

Because of all that, startups hoping to go public didn’t dare step foot into a tumultuous and deflated stock market. Many firms are just trying to survive until there’s an economic turnaround. Some have recently gone under, including the once-promising Colorado cancer firm Clovis Oncology and Cambridge neurological disease startup Faze Medicines.“There were a lot of really good companies poised to go public early last year that had the rug pulled out from under them, and they went into survival mode,” said Jeffrey Quillen, a partner at the Boston law firm Foley Hoag who works with biotech startups from formation to stock market debut. By the end of 2022, the biotech industry was “holding on by its fingernails,” he said.Many of those hangers-on were represented at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare...
