New Jersey Accuses Real Estate Development Company of Defrauding 1,800 Investors
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (SSEK Law Firm at investorlawyers.com) is investigating claims of losses by 1,800 investors. These investors may have been fraudulently sold at least $630M in securities by National Realty Investment Advisors (NRIA) between 2018 and 2022. The New Jersey-based real estate development company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on June 8, 2022.
An affidavit filed in US bankruptcy court notes about $600M in claims against approximately $300M of assets. On June 21, 2022, the New Jersey Bureau of Securities ordered NRIA to stop operations and accused the company of fraudulent investment sales. Investors were purportedly fraudulently sold units in the NRIA Fund. The minimum investment that investors could make was $100K.
