BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Boca Raton-based financial advisory group Seeman Holtz is being sued by multiple senior citizens who claim that the company’s financial advisors illegally pushed them to invest money in promissory notes, then refused to pay when those notes matured.

According to the suit, investors were told the firm is undergoing financial problems and that the funds couldn’t be immediately paid.

Seeman Holtz received $4,269,400 in PPP funds on April 7th, 2020, according to public records. Founder Marshal Seeman just listed his home at 1300 Thatch Palm Drive in Boca Raton for $8,650,000.

Attorneys representing the plaintiffs write: “Seeman Holtz which was not registered as a broker-dealer with the State of Florida, U.S. Securitities and Exchange Commission or the Financial Industry Regulator Authority, sold the notes to the Plaintiffs. The notes are unregistered securities. Messrs. Seeman and Holtz managed and control Seeman Holtz and also manage and control PL Holding, the managing member of the PL Entities.”

“Using a network of unregistered dealers, Seeman Holtz sold the Notes to seniors, including Plaintiffs and others, by telling investors that the notes, including the Notes at issue in this case, were safe and secure and would be collateralized by a portfolio of life insurance policies which would provide safety of principal and substantial returns.”

But the seniors — many of whom allegedly invested their life savings with Seeman Holtz — saw nothing in return.

“Upon information and belief,” states the suit, “these representations were materially false and misleading.”

We’ll update if Seeman Holtz responds. The plaintiffs are represented by Sallah Astarita and Cox in Boca Raton; Menzer and Hill P.A.; and Silver Law Group.
