The SEC has announced fraud charges against, and taken steps to freeze the assets of, Oxford City Football Club Inc., a Florida-based penny stock company that has falsely touted itself as “The largest publicly traded diversified portfolio of professional sports teams in the world.”
According to the SEC press-release, Oxford City Football Club Inc. “used pressure tactics and a boiler room of salespeople to raise more than $6.5 million from primarily inexperienced investors who were misled to believe that the company was a thriving conglomerate of sports teams, academic institutions, and real estate holdings.” In reality, this company was actually losing millions and turning zero profit from just two lower-division soccer teams in the UK.
Investors being led to believe a company is thriving when it is in fact losing money have every right to hold these companies accountable.
