U.S. federal prosecutors in Los Angeles have filed criminal charges against former KPMG partner Scott London.

Business Insider reports that KPMG recently fired London for allegedly leaking non-public information on Herbalife and Sketchers.

London is said to have tipped off a third party, which the SEC alleges is his friend Brian Shaw. Shaw reportedly made over $1.2m trading off those tips.

Now CNBC has tweeted an image from the SEC complaint that seems to show London allegedly receiving one of many $5,000 payments for the information from Shaw.
