GPB Capital Class Action Lawsuit Alleges Ponzi Scheme

GPB Capital Class action Lawsuit Alleges Ponzi Scheme, featured by Top Securities Fraud Attorneys, The White Law Group

Concerned about your investment in GPB Capital?

The White Law Group continues its investigation involving broker-dealers who may have unsuitably recommended GPB Capital private placements to investors.

According to news reports this week, a class action lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in Austin, Texas alleging misconduct in the sales of GPB Capital private placement investments.

The firm, which raised close to $1.8 billion from investors in the past six years, purportedly promised investors returns of 8% annually, but those returns were allegedly not generated by investments in auto dealers or other businesses but purportedly paid for by using the capital from the next round of investors, or in some cases the capital of the investor himself, according to the allegations.

Although GPB’s business plan called for a partnership with independent broker-dealers to sell private placements to wealthy investors, instead of generating high returns for clients,  “the GPB Capital Ponzi scheme was a garden variety Ponzi scheme,” according to the complaint.

Investigating Potential Lawsuits

The White Law Group continues its investigation into FINRA-registered broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended GPB Capital’s offerings to investors, including the following offerings:

Armada Waste Management LP (f/k/a GPB Waste Management LP)
GPB Holdings II
GPB Holdings I
GPB Automotive Portfolio
GPB Cold Storage
GPB NYC Development
GPB Holdings Qualified LP
GPB Holdings Automotive LLC
