PR Newswire

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 1st Global Capital, LLC and 1st West Capital, LLC are being investigated by the Goldman Scarlato & Penny PC investor rights lawyers for potential securities laws violations, in the wake of those two entities' bankruptcy filings and following the securities fraud allegations filed today by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

1st Global Capital and 1st West Capital advertised themselves to investors as merchant lenders that advanced short-term cash to small businesses across the country. They raised money chiefly from individual investors through the sale of promissory notes.

Today, the SEC charged 1st Global Capital and 1st West Capital with fraudulently raising more than $287 million through the sale of unregistered securities to investors by a network of investment professionals. Separately, the two entities disclosed in their bankruptcy proceedings that the U.S. Attorney's office has launched its own investigation.
