Notice to LPL Financial, LLC Customers - Law Firm of David R. Chase, P.A. Initiates Investigation Into Sale of Non-Traded REITS

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Law Firm of David R. Chase, P.A., headed by a former SEC Prosecutor, announces its investigation of the sales practices utilized by LPL Financial in connection with its recommendations of non-traded REITS, including Inland America and Cole Credit Property, to its retail customers.

Just recently, the Massachusetts Securities Division filed a complaint against LPL Financial charging it with fraudulent business practices arising out of its sales of various non-traded real estate investment trusts to its Massachusetts customers. Specifically, the complaint alleges that LPL Financial sold non-traded REITS in violation of certain prospectus requirements and its own compliance practices.

My law firm has represented REIT investors in cases against securities firms alleging that the REITS -- illiquid and highly speculative -- were unsuitable, especially for the elderly and retirees, who sought safe, income producing investments and, further, that the true risks of the investments were either misrepresented and/or not fully and properly disclosed to them.
