On Tuesday, the SEC said former Jumio CEO Daniel Mattes has agreed to pay over $17 million to settle charges that he had defrauded investors—allegedly overstating the company’s revenue by more than ten times in a bid to sell off his own existing shares in the company to individuals as well as funds starting in 2014.
