Lacroix & His PlexCorps Allegedly Marketed & Sold Securities Called PlexCoin Claiming Investments in PlexCoin would Yield a 1,354 Percent Profit in Less than 29 Days

Dominic Lacroix, a purported recidivist Quebec securities law violator, and his  firm, PlexCorps, allegedly claimed that investments in PlexCoin would yield a 1,354 percent profit in less than 29 days, according to an SEC Complaint under review by attorney Alan Rosca.

Attorney Rosca, of the RoscaLaw LLC firm, is investigating activity related to Dominic Lacroix’s alleged ICO investment fraud scheme. Investors who believe they may have lost money in activity related to Dominic Lacroix’s alleged ICO investment fraud scheme are encouraged to contact attorney Alan Rosca with any useful information or for a free, no obligation discussion about their options.

Dominic Lacroix allegedly marketed and sold securities named PlexCoin on the internet to investors in the U.S. and elsewhere and raised up to $15 million from thousands of investors since August of 2017, according to the aforementioned Complaint.

Subsequently the SEC announced that it has obtained an emergency asset freeze to halt PlexCorps’ allegedly fast-moving Initial Coin Offering (ICO) fraud, the Complaint notes.

The SEC has also filed charges in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, and has also  charged Lacroix’s partner, Sabrina Paradis-Royer, in connection with the scheme, the Complaint states.

The Landmark Charges against PlexCorps are the First Filed by the SEC’s New Cyber Unit

Lacroix, Paradis-Royer, and PlexCorps allegedly violated the anti-fraud provisions of U.S. federal securities laws, and Lacroix and PlexCorps allegedly violated the SEC’s registration provision of the U.S. federal securities laws, according to the aforementioned Complaint being reviewed by attorney Alan Rosca.

Hence, the SEC is seeking permanent injunctions, disgorgement plus interest and penalties against Lacroix and PlexCorps, the Complaint states.

The charges against PlexCorps are a landmark case as they are the first filed by the SEC’s new Cyber Unit, the Complaint states.

The SEC’s Cyber Unit was created in September to focus the Enforcement Division’s cyber-related expertise on misconduct involving distributed ledger technology and initial coin offerings, the spread of false information through electronic and social media, hacking and threats to trading platforms, the SEC reports.
