Securities and Investment Fraud, Misrepresentation and Theft Litigation and FINRA Arbitration Attorney, Russell L. Forkey, Esq.
Recently, two Texas and two foreign nationals filed a law suit in Broward County, Florida against Immigration General Services Center, LLC., Immigration General Services, LLC., Jenny Coplan, Stephen Coplan and Ana Guzman arising out of the investment by the plaintiffs in an alleged Ponzi scheme connected with the sale to investors of fixed income investment paying interest at the rate of between 4 and 6 percent per month, depending of the level of a client's investment.
Allegedly, the corporate defendants had been in business for a number of years and had been highly successful financially because of a unique niche business that they had found and developed which provided FDIC insured collateral for a nationally recognized "bail bond" company with which it had a long term contractual relationship.
Contrary to the investment representations made to the plaintiffs, it is alleged that the plaintiffs' investment was used by the defendants to pay their personal expenses, pay commissions to "finders" and to make payments to earlier investors.
The deposition of Ana Guzman was taken on February, 8, 2012. Subsequently, the deposition of Jenny Coplan was taken. Based upon information obtained from the deposition of Ms. Coplan, the plaintiffs have elected to amend their complaint to add the additional defendants, Ana Vejarano, Juan Cardona, Carlos Botero and Javier Gomez.
Additionally, the plaintiff is filing a motion, with the court, seeking leave, from the court, to seek punitive damages from all of the defendants.
