SSEK Investigate Investment Fraud Claims Made Against 1 Global Capital

If you are someone who invested in 1 Global Capital notes at the recommendation of your broker or financial advisor, you may have grounds for filing an investment fraud claim. 1 Global is accused of operating a $322M scam and defrauding at least 3,600 investors including older investors who lost their retirement funds as a result. 

Contact Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas, LLP (SSEK Law Firm) today so we can determine whether you have grounds for a broker fraud case to help you recover your money. 

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has filed fraud charges against 1 Global Capital LLC, a Florida-based cash advance company, and its ex-CEO Carl Ruderman. According to the regulator, they allegedly defrauded at least 3,400 investors and since 2014 have fraudulently raised over $287M through unregistered securities sales.

According to the SEC’s complaint, 1 Global worked with a network of both registered and unregistered investment advisors, brokers who were barred from the industry, and other sales agents. The company paid them millions of dollars in commissions for offering and selling the unregistered securities to investors in at least 25 US states.

Investors were promised that they would make money from loans that 1 Global would issue to companies. The investments were touted as “high-return, low-risk” and purportedly involved the issuing of short-term cash advances to businesses that didn’t qualify for financing of the “more traditional” varieties.
