Securities Investigation – USA Barcelona Realty Advisors
Are you concerned about your investment in USA Barcelona Realty Advisors LLC? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
In August 2015, the Arizona Corporation Commission issued former financial advisor Robert Kerrigan, and his business partners a temporary order to cease and desist transactions in USA Barcelona Realty Advisors LLC, and USA Barcelona Hotel Land Company I, LLC, both Arizona limited liability companies, due to the Commission’s alleging that USA Barcelona’s business practices violated the Arizona Securities Act, including a fraudulent plan of using new investors’ funds to pay off an older note.
As we told you in July 2016, FINRA barred Kerrigan for his alleged refusal and failure to cooperate with their investigation into allegations that he participated in undisclosed private securities transactions and outside business activities. According to his FINRA BrokerCheck, Kerrigan was registered with First Financial Equity Corporation from 10/2008 – 08/2015.
According to the Commission’s allegations, Kerrigan sold numerous customers the USA Barcelona promissory notes, with a total offering of $1,000,000.
