Case:SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, vs. JUSTIN MOONGYU LEE ET AL.

Jurisdiction:Federal District Court for the Central District of California

Status:Resolved

Civil / Criminal:Civil

Cause(s) of Action:

Securities Violations

Description:

This case involves a scheme perpetrated by two immigration attorneys. The SEC filed suit for defrauding Chinese and Korean investors claiming that their monies would be invested in a program that met the requirements of the US Government EB-5 visa program. From March 2009 to April 2011, the Defendants raised $11,455,000 from twenty-four investors through three offerings, purportedly for Defendant Nexsun Ethanol, LLC to construct an ethanol plant in Kansas. Rather than investing the monies as promised – and as required for the investors to obtain residency – the Defendants misappropriated at least $7,210,000, or 62.94%, of the total amount raised.
