While working for a broker between September 2009 and August 2010, Graziano submitted nearly 90 fraudulent trade cards that resulted in a remarkable success rate of 90 to 100 percent. The federal judge who sentenced her said the scheme "damaged the legitimacy of the exchange itself."

Graziano was facing a maximum of 10 years in prison.
