Securities lawyers at Mika Meyers, PLC are investigating potential claims against brokerage firms that sold private placement securities issued by GPB Capital.
Late last year, news reports revealed that the SEC and FINRA were investigating potential securities laws violations by GPB and the brokerage firms which helped to sell GPB securities to thousands of investors nationwide. More recently, it was reported that the FBI had served GPB with a search warrant for its New York headquarters. Although the details of the various government investigations are not publicly available at this time, a complaint filed against GPB in a private lawsuit by a business partner, Prime Automotive, alleges that GPB has been falsely inflating its financials and running a Ponzi-like scheme to defraud investors.
The GPB offerings raised $1.8 billion from investors, tens of millions of which went towards the payment of commissions to brokers. Two of the largest GPB funds have suffered losses of 40% of their value and halted distributions to investors.
