SSEK Investigating Centaurus Financial Brokers 

Our brokerage firm misconduct lawyers at Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas, LLP (SSEK Law Firm) are representing investors who were sold structured certificates of deposits (CDs) by Centaurus Financial brokers Cindy Chiellini and Ricky Mantei. 

Both work out of Lexington, South Carolina and are the subject of numerous complaints by customers, many of whom are based in Colorado and were sold these CDs. Now, the Colorado Division of Securities is considering pulling Centaurus’s license in that state over its alleged failure to properly supervise Mantei and Chiellini. 


Over 1000 Investors May Be Victims of Alleged Future Income Payments Fraud

Dozens of stockbrokers, financial planners, financial advisers, and insurance agents are now the defendants of investor fraud lawsuits over an alleged $100M scam that may have bilked over 1000 investors. Many of these investors were retirees, which means that elder investor fraud may have been involved.

InvestmentNews reports that according to the plaintiffs, the advisers breached their fiduciary obligation and were negligent when they sold them structured cash flows offered by Future Income Payments, LLC. At least 370 investment intermediaries in the US are believed to have sold these investments to investors, with the representatives receiving 6-10% in commissions upfront.
