In Brooklyn, New York, in the United States of America, he was born in 1945. On August 23, 2022, he passed away at the age of 77.
Steven established Towers Financial Corporation in New York City at the start of the 1970s with the intention of purchasing consumer debt owing to hospitals, banks, and phone companies. He served as president, chairman, and CEO of the company, but in the end, it was shown to be a Ponzi scheme.

The judge sentenced him to 20 years in jail, a $1 million fine, and $463 million in restitution in 1997. He was freed, according to the Bureau of Prisons, in October 2013. He paid $60 million to resolve a civil lawsuit with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
