National investment fraud lawyers KlaymanToskes announces that it filed a securities arbitration claim on behalf of a retired special education teacher against National Securities Corporation to recover damages sustained in GWG Holdings, Inc. (OTCMKTS: GWGHQ) L Bonds.
According to the claim, National Securities Corporation’s broker Mark Cline recommended that a Florida retiree invest in GWG L Bonds, which was an unsuitable, highly speculative, illiquid private placement. Incredibly, less than 3 years after the brokerage firm represented the GWG L Bonds as a safe, low-risk investment, GWG halted its interest and principal payments. Shortly thereafter, in April 2022, GWG filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and the Company along with its network of broker-dealers are subject to a SEC investigation into the sales of L Bonds.
According to securities attorney Lawrence L. Klayman, Esq., “Brokerage firms had a responsibility to investigate and monitor red flags associated with GWG and its L Bonds to protect their customers. The firm’s failure to conduct due diligence caused our client to incur substantial harm, and the firm is liable in a FINRA arbitration claim.”
The sole purpose of this release is to investigate on behalf of our clients who purchased GWG L Bonds through full-service brokerage firms, including National Securities Corporation. Former and current customers of full-service brokerage firms such as National Securities Corporation with losses in excess of $75,000, and those who have information relating to the manner in which their accounts were handled, are encouraged to contact Lawrence L. Klayman, Esq. at 1 (888) 997-9956.
