President of Office Equipment Leasing Company Gets Four-Year Sentence

Michael Conway, the president of Choice Office Solutions, was sentenced to four years in prison by a U.S. district judge.

Last February, Conway pleaded guilty to wire fraud in connection to a scheme in which he forged numerous lease agreements, including one with the New York Mets in which he forged an authorization letter from Jeffrey Wilpon, the team’s chief operating officer. The lease agreements defrauded DLL and an individual investor more than $4.5 million.

Conway was also ordered to pay more than $3.5 million to the individual investor and a little more than $1.2 million to DLL as part of the sentencing.

According to court filings, between March 2014 and August 2015, Conway forged lease agreements with various companies in the business of leasing office equipment, and then used these fraudulent agreements to obtain financing from private investors.
