PFI News: Investors Receive Letters From Marin County Law Firm
PFI investors recently received letters from an attorney for PFI indicating that the SEC has begun an inquiry into PFI and its owner, Kenneth J. Casey, who passed away last month. One of the letters states that the SEC is currently conducting a fact-finding inquiry into Ken Casey and PFI, and that
there were legitimate questions involving the structure and investment history of Mr. Casey’s companies.
Further, according to another letter, all PFI officers have resigned from the company. Investors also received a letter from the person appointed as Chief Restructuring Officer stating that PFI and a related company engaged in “serious misconduct” over nearly 30 years.
Professional Financial Investors Lawsuit
Gibbs Law Group and Silver Law Group have filed a complaint against PFI, alleging that PFI created a web of legal entities and investment vehicles that lured individuals to invest in apartment and commercial buildings in and around Marin County. PFI promised investors distributions that would come from rental income and/or profits from the eventual sale of the properties.
The complaint further alleges that since the death of PFI’s owner in May 2020, payments to investors have stopped without any indication as to whether or when they’ll resume. The complaint states that the investments PFI sold were securities that should have been registered with the SEC and/or the State of California, but were not – and therefore were illegally sold.
