J & L Real Estate Group – Complaint Filed by SEC Against Owner | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses

According to SEC Allegations

J&L Real Estate Group, LLC (“J&L”) is a Utah limited liability company controlled by Landon Smith. Landon Smith ran his Ponzi scheme through his J&L account at America First Federal Credit Union. J&L has never been registered with the Commission in any capacity.

Smith issued promissory notes guaranteeing investors’ principal and promising returns of up to 100%.

Landon Smith told investors he was a real estate wholesaler who used investor funds for the earnest money to purchase and then quickly sell real estate. Landon Smith issued promissory notes purportedly for the purpose of obtaining earnest money tied to the purchase of specific properties. Between December 2016 and April 2018 Smith raised approximately $2,441,000 from fifty-one individual investors through unsecured promissory notes. Landon Smith never purchased the alleged properties, but instead used new investor funds to pay returns to earlier investors in a classic Ponzi scheme.

Landon Smith also used investor funds for personal expenses including rent, utility payments, and trips to Hawaii to visit his children. Landon Smith created false real estate contracts to make it appear he entered into real estate transactions. Landon Smith told investors their funds were the only source of earnest money on a specific property, however, Landon Smith used the same fraudulent documents to obtain earnest money from multiple investors on the same property
