SEC & Florida Penny-Stock Promoters Settle Fraud Charges

On October 13, 2011 the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida entered judgments against a group of penny-stock promoters arising out of their repackaging of “news” issued by a series of sham energy companies. The judgments, which the defendants consented to as part of a settlement with the Commission, require them to pay penalties and to disgorge profits from their illicit activities. The judgments also permanently ban the defendants from touting and other dealings involving penny stocks.  SEC v. Wall Street Capital Funding LLC, Philip Cardwell, Roy Campbell, and Aaron Hume, Civil Action No. 11-cv-20413-DLG (S.D. Fla.)
