Brooklyn Heights Financial Adviser Guilty in Scam

A financial adviser and author from Brooklyn Heights (with an office on Montague Street) pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges that she schemed with two California women to steal more than $1.6 million from investors in a housing fix-and-flip scam.

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, Jennifer Wilkov, 39, admitted she used her job at American Express Financial Advisors to find victims in New York City to invest in a fraudulent scheme to fix up houses in California and resell them for big profits.

Wilkov is the author of "Dating Your Money."
