Invictus Capital, John Carris Investments and George Carris Investigated

Invictus CapitalJohn Carris Investments, and George Carris are being investigated by the securities attorneys at the Peiffer Wolf law firm, for alleged violations of the securities laws and regulations in connection with the sale of Invictus Capital securities to their customers.

John Carris Investments, a securities broker-dealer firm, and George Carris, its principal and owner, have been charged by the securities regulators with organizing a fraudulent offering of stock and notes in John Carris’ parent company, Invictus Capital.  George Carris is also Invictus Capital’s principal and owner.

Invictus Capital was struggling financially and losing millions of dollars at the time of the allegedly fraudulent offering of securities orchestrated by John Carris Investments and George Carris, according to the regulators.

Investigation by securities lawyers Jason Kane and Joe Peiffer has established that Invictus Capital organized four securities offerings since 2011 and sought to raise nearly $24 million from investors.  All such offerings were to be promoted by John Carris investmentsaccording to regulatory documents reviewed by attorneys Kane and Peiffer.

Evidence assembled by attorneys Kane and Peiffer suggests that Invictus has raised several million dollars from investors nationwide.  Several stockbrokers may have promoted the offerings, including George Carris and Andrey Tkatchenko.

While raising funds for Invictus Capital, George Carris and several John Carris stockbrokers did not disclose to investors the poor financial condition of Invictus Capital and John Carris Investments and misled investors regarding Invictus Capital’s financial condition, according to the securities regulators’ charges.
Part of the money raised from Invictus Capital investors was used to pay dividends to earlier Invictus investors, in Ponzi-scheme fashion, the regulators charged.  Also, some of the investors’ funds were reportedly used to pay for George Carris’ personal expenses, including tattoos, pet care, and a motorcycle.
Attorneys Jason Kane and Joe Peiffer are preparing to take action on behalf of Invictus Capital investors and seek compensation for their investments.
