Shepherd Smith Edwards & Kantas LLP Files Claims Involving Mark Marek, Willard Golightly, Matt Bell, WFG Investments Inc., Securities America, Inc. and Alamo Asset Advisors.

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- Lawyers with the Securities Law Firm of SHEPHERD SMITH EDWARDS & KANTAS LLP,, have recently filed numerous claims on behalf of clients involving Mark Marek ("Marek"), Willard Golightly ("Golightly"), and Matt Bell ("Bell"). These brokers were all former and/or current employees of WFG Investments Inc., and Securities America, Inc. They also operated under the name of Alamo Asset Advisors, LLC, formerly known as E & C Private Wealth Management Group, LLC, based out of San Antonio.

According to the claims, Marek, Bell and Golightly improperly recommended their clients purchase illiquid private placements like California Proton Treatment Center LLC, Maryland Proton Treatment Holdings, Keating Capital Inc., Palmaz Scientific Inc., Madison Capital Energy Income Fund, Strategic Storage Trust Inc., Surebooks LLC. The brokers have been accused of repeatedly promising that these were low risk, appropriate investments when they were not. It has also been alleged that Marek, Bell and Golightly also engaged in speculative and wholly inappropriate trading in high risk penny stocks for these clients, including trades of Location Based Technologies, Inc. (LBAS), CodeSmart Holdings, Inc. (ITEN), Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (SOUL), and Towerstream Corporation (TWER).

Typically, when a broker engages in wholly inappropriate trading with one of their clients, there are many other clients who were mistreated, misled, or otherwise hurt without even realizing it. As such, people who currently or in the past have held brokerage accounts with Alamo Asset Advisors, Matt Bell, Willard Golightly or Mark Marek, should carefully review their accounts to ensure that there were not problems.
