Investor Alert

On Feb 4, 2021 the SEC arrested three men for running a $2 Billion Ponzi scheme called GPB Capital. It was based in New York and Texas. The SEC, following an investigation and criminal indictment by Massachusetts, charged GPB Capital with violating securities laws and conspiracy. Between $1.3 and 1.9 billion of securities were sold to U.S. investors as being secure investments, producing monthly income. As a result many older and retired people invested in these, including:

GPB Capital Holdings, LP
GPB Capital Holdings, II
GPB Automotive Portfolio
GPB Waste Management
GPB Cold Storage
Armada Waste Management

Several brokerage firms sold interests in these Ponzi schemes without completing adequate due diligence. They received commissions between 4-7%. They are liable to investors looking to recover their losses if they failed to conduct adequate due diligence of the securities before selling them.

The Nygaard Law Firm has been contacted by investors who purchased GPB securities from Sagepoint Financial, Vanderbilt Securities, FSC, and other brokers.

It is difficult to believe that someone you have trusted with your savings might have abused that trust. However, the securities laws require active supervision of all investment advisors. Most cases I have handled could have been prevented had the brokerage firm or advisory firm complied with the supervisory regulations. Cases can proceed against the firm. It is not legally necessary to name the individual broker.
