Valesky Barosy’s public life – or at least what he claimed to lead on social media – was lavish: a new Lamborghini Huracán EVO, designer clothing from Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton, and wristwatches from Rolex and Hublot.
Fort Lauderdale’s 27-year-old “entrepreneur” built his wealth working for a Michigan-based credit-score repair and financial literacy company, Financial Education Services Inc. By all accounts, his career was flourishing. Business news wire AccessWire named Barosy one of the “Top 10 Leaders to Watch Closely in 2020,” citing his success as a Haitian immigrant and youngest executive vice president in an organization expected to do “over 6 million dollars in sales and beyond” and calling him an embodiment of the “American Dream.”
Barosy, now the president of V Barosy Solutions, was charged with a slew of financial crimes, including wire fraud, money laundering, and identity theft, according to a federal indictment. A conviction could result in 132 years behind bars.
