Union County Company Ordered to Cease Selling Investments

RALEIGH, NC – The North Carolina Secretary of State Division of Securities has ordered a Monroe company and its directors to stop selling financial securities.

The Securities Division issued a cease and desist order against PMC Strategy, LLC on Thursday, February 10. The order alleges that PMC Strategy and its directors and agents offered investments to North Carolina investors beginning in July 2008 despite not being registered with the state to sell securities. PMC and its agents allegedly represented to investors that their money would be invested in the foreign currency market. Investigators allege some investors were told they could earn five percent interest monthly if they invested at least $10,000.

Secretary of State Elaine F. Marshall noted that it is in the public interest to issue a cease and desist order at this time.

“We believe there is strong reason to take this action to protect North Carolina investors while we continue an investigation to determine if further enforcement action is necessary in this case.” Secretary Marshall continued, “I urge anyone who has a complaint about any investment with this company to contact the Secretary of State’s Securities Division.”

Anyone with concerns about having made investments with PMC Strategies, LLC in Monroe is urged to contact the North Carolina Secretary of State Division of Securities at 1-800-688-4507.
