Tamayo paid Metro from his bootleg gains, according to the SEC.

“As the middleman, Tamayo was the firewall in between Metro and Eydelman.  Metro had the information, Eydelman did the trading, and Tamayo kept them apart,” pronounced Robert Cohen, Co-Deputy Chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s Market Abuse Unit.  “But they were wrong in desiring that this would stop the SEC from detecting their scheme.”

According to the SEC’s press release, Tamayo typically would bond with Eydelman nearby the time at the report counter at Grand Central, where he would show him a post-it note or napkin on that Tamayo wrote the batch ticker pitch of the association to be acquired.  Tamayo afterwards chewed up and infrequently even ate the post-it note or napkin to fall short justification of the tip.

After Eydelman returned to his bureau and collected investigate about the aim company, the SEC recover says, he would e-mail Tamayo ostensible thoughts about because shopping the batch done sense.  That way, they would leave a paper route creation it crop up they done their traffic decisions formed on their own research.
