Did you invest funds with Nicholas Schorsch’s nontraded REITs?

The Peiffer Rosca Wolf investor rights lawyers are currently investigating the sale of nontraded real estate investment trusts, or REITs, by Nicholas Schorsch’s Realty Capital Securities, a Boston-based firm also being looked into by the office of William Galvin, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Realty Capital Securities serves as the wholesaling arm of RCS Capital Corp., a broker-dealer holding company.  Schorsch serves as the executive chairman of RCS Capital, or RCAP.

The SEC and FBI have also commenced investigations of ARCP, according to news reports being reviewed by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.

The reports also detail that Mr. Galvin’s office, which also includes the Massachusetts securities division, is specifically looking at what information was given to investors who bought the REITs and what they were told regarding accounting practices.

Recently, Schorsch’s REIT Empire, the largely traded REIT American Realty Capital Properties Inc., revealed an alleged $23 million accounting error over the first six months of this year that was intentionally uncorrected.
