Jeffery B. Risinger—Ponzi Scheme and Failure to Provide OTR Testimony
Jeffery B. Risinger Allegedly Participated in a Ponzi Scheme, Failed to Appear and Provide On-the-record Testimony
Jeffery B Risinger allegedly, from 2012 through 2014, solicited at least 80 investors to invest more than $15 million in Farm Loan Holdings LLC and FarmGrowCap LLC (or Farm Grow Cap LLC), according to a recent SEC Complaint currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
The SEC goes on to allege that Farm Loan Holdings and FarmGrowCap purportedly used money to make short term loans to farmers, and that the aforementioned investor proceeds were used to fund said loans.
Jeffery B. Risinger, however, allegedly used said investor funds in order to make payments to earlier investors when those farms did not repay their loans, a telltale sign of a Ponzi scheme, the SEC notes. The Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane securities lawyers are currently investigating Jeffery B. Risinger’s alleged participation in a Ponzi scheme and failure to appear for on-the-record testimony, and are preparing to assist investors.
Jeffery B. Risinger Allegedly Paid Himself Undisclosed Fees, Misled Investors; Barred by FINRA
Jeffery B. Risinger along with several other brokers allegedly paid themselves at least $800,000 in undisclosed fees and on several occasions purportedly misled investors about the risks, nature, and performance of the investments and underlying farm loans, according to a recent SEC Complaint currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Jason Kane.
Jeffery B. Risinger, in addition to the aforementioned behavior, and, according to a FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent, allegedly failed to appear before FINRA to deliver on-the-record testimony, and thus violated FINRA Rules, and therefore has been barred by FINRA from associating with any FINRA Member Firm in any capacity.
One should also note that, according to the Complaint, Jeffery B. Risinger neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
