Oscar Villarreal’s WW Capital III Fund Investigated by Attorney Joe Peiffer

WW Capital III Fund, organized by Cleveland investment professional Oscar Villarreal, is being investigated by New Orleans attorney Joe Peiffer, following allegations of possible investment misconduct reported in the Cleveland media.

Oscar Villarreal raised funds for his WW Capital III fund from several prominent Cleveland area investors, according to a September 5, 2013 article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, available here: Oscar Villarreal WW Capital III fund.

Investigation by securities attorney Joe Peiffer indicates Oscar Villarreal filed a “private placement” notice for his WW Capital III Fund with the federal and Ohio securities regulators in 2009, indicating he intended to raise $20 million from investors nationwide.

Prior to that offering, Villarreal raised funds for another investment vehicle through a private placement, according to regulatory documents reviewed by attorney  Joe Peiffer.

Peiffer identified a number of apparent inconsistencies between representations made by Villarreal in the regulatory filing for WW Capital III with the Securities and Exchange Commision and certain statements made by his investors. They are further investigating to determine whether or not the WW Capital III offering was made in accordance with the securities rules and regulations.
