Waste2Energy, which purported to possess technology for converting waste into clean energy, filed for bankruptcy in 2011.
According to a recent SEC news release, Gregg Lorenzo, founder of Charles Vista brokerage firm, has been accused by the SEC of making false and misleading statement to solicit investors into risky investments with Waste2Energy Holdings. The SEC news release further states that Lorenzo led investors to believe that Waste 2Energygy was a “risk-free” investment opportunity that would provide lucrative returns, when in fact it was a speculative debt security offering.
According to the SEC’s order, Charles Vista was the exclusive placement agent for the issuance of these Waste2Energy securities, and the firm’s financial interest in the offering was considerable. Documents attached to some of Waste2Energy’s SEC filings indicate that Charles Vista had arranged to receive a 10 percent “commission” on the gross proceeds of all debentures sales, a consulting fee of $10,000 per month for 12 months, and various other commissions and fees.
When brokers make fraudulent statements and deliberately mislead investors, both the broker and the brokerage firm may be liable for investment losses.
