    SEC charges multiple firms, individuals with microcap fraud schemes, including Barry Honig

    The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a group of 10 individuals and 10 associated entities on Friday for their participation in fraudulent stock sales schemes that ran from 2013 to 2018. A group of South Florida-based alleged microcap fraudsters led by Barry Honig manipulated the share price of the stock of three companies in classic pump-and-dump schemes that generated over $27 million from retail investors who were left holding virtually worthless stock. According to the SEC's complaint, Honig allegedly orchestrated the acquisition of large quantities of the issuer's stock at steep discounts, and after securing a substantial ownership interest in the companies, Honig and his associates engaged in illegal promotional activity and manipulative trading to artificially boost each issuer's stock price and to give the stock the appearance of active trading volume. According to the SEC's complaint, Honig and his associates then dumped their shares into the inflated market, reaping millions of dollars at the expense of unsuspecting investors. Miami biotech billionaire Phillip Frost allegedly participated in two of these three schemes. The SEC charged Honig, John Stetson, Michael Brauser, John R. O'Rourke III, Mark Groussman, Frost, Elliot Maza, Robert Ladd, Brian Keller, John H. Ford, Alpha Capital Anstalt, ATG Capital LLC, GRQ Consultants Inc., HS Contrarian Investments LLC, Grander Holdings Inc., Melechdavid Inc., OPKO Health Inc., Frost Gamma Investments Trust, Southern Biotech Inc., and Stetson Capital Investments Inc. in federal court with violating antifraud, beneficial ownership disclosure, and registration provisions of the federal securities laws and seeks monetary and equitable relief. Riot Blockchain , in which Honig has an ownership stake, tumbled on the news.
