I would be happy to share the letter, but I am not sure if I should have a lawyer represent me when contacting them. They are looking for any and all documentation for the questioned information. I would also be happy to explain in further detail
You need an attorney to guide you through the process of FINRA's investigation not only to assist in answering the letter but dealing with potential things down the road. First and foremost, FINRA staff has little patience for those people unrepresented by counsel, as they construe it to mean that the registrant isn't taking the inquiry seriously. Second, I've had cases where FINRA continues investigations and sanctions proceedings through use of a poorly written response serving as the basis for continued questioning on the record. And when you have inconsistencies, that is often blown up into a charge of making a misstatement to a securities regulator, which is often a ground for FINRA to seek a lifetime bar from the business. More importantly, you need counsel to maintain attorney/client privilege of documents and communications. Hiring an attorney for these sorts of things is not cheap, but the risks of proceeding without one make little or no sense.See question

The business is based in Florida, but where is it incorporated? You may be able to bring a derivative action or accounting action in the state of incorporation. You should hire counsel not only to handle litigation of this matter but also filing complaints with the securities regulators in California and Florida, as well as through the SEC's Dodd-Frank Whistleblower program.See question

You say you "researched" the company? Really? Have you gone on www.finra.org and checked up on the principals who run this entity? Have you done a litigation search or judgment search on the principals and their prior companies, as well as this one? A cookie cutter PPM is worthless if not narrowly tailored to the specifics of your deal. And the fact that this guy offered to help raise the money without any diligence on you is even more telling. Don't walk away...run.See question

In a civil sense there would not be a "penalty" other than damages such as rescission of investments, etc. In the regulatory and criminal sense, the SEC has wide discretion to fine and sanction market participants involved in wrongful acts. People can be fined, sanctioned and barred from the securities industry. If you believe wrongful conduct has occurred, you should with the assistance of an attorney submit a Dodd-Frank whistleblower submission to the SEC and CA authorities. Do not forget that California has parallel statutes to the Investment Advisers Act.See question
My bro & family-- long-time GF + kids-- have been struggling financially ever since the 2008 crisis. My elderly mom used her retirement savings to help fund real estate investments through their company (really his in practice). When the propertie...
You are going to have to find the paperwork your mother used to purchase the property to ascertain whether in fact GF had a majority shareholder stake and whether the company was adequately capitalized for her to assert that. On top of this, you have a separation that will likely need to be sorted out through the courts. Virtually impossible to answer this question without seeing the precise paperwork. That being said, visiting and attorney and a private investigator to ascertain what GF has in terms of assets can prevent you from throwing good money after bad.See question
