SEC Halts Fraudulent Real Estate-Related Investment Offerings

Litigation Release No. 25423 / June 15, 2022


The SEC’s complaint alleges that Templeton has raised more than $18.7 million since 2011 by selling securities issued by Boron, BC Holdings, and United in unregistered offerings.

In the United offering, which began in 2018, Templeton allegedly promised investors that they would receive 8% annualized returns secured by a UCC-1 lien and a mortgage on real estate.

The complaint alleges, however, that Templeton never filed the UCC-1 lien and failed to file a deed of trust to secure United’s interest in the real estate until 2021.

The complaint further alleges that, before filing the deed of trust, Templeton, in undisclosed transactions, granted a prior deed of trust to a large BC Holdings investor and signed an agreement subordinating United’s interest in the real estate to that of the large investor.

The complaint also alleges that Templeton falsely represented to investors that United would provide audited financial statements annually and that a renowned business consultant served on Boron’s board of directors.

In the BC Holdings offering, which began in 2021, Templeton allegedly represented to investors that their investments-on which he promised returns ranging from 10% to 12.5%-would be secured by real estate.

But as alleged, these investments too were subject to the large BC Holdings investor’s undisclosed priority deed of trust and subordination agreement.

The underlying real estate purportedly securing the investments of the United and BC Holdings investors allegedly produced insufficient revenue to satisfy promised investor returns, so Templeton made Ponzi payments to some investors.

The complaint further alleges that the note for the large BC Holdings investor matured on December 15, 2021, and the note’s extension periods expired on March 15, 2022.

With penalties, BC Holdings allegedly now owes the large investor more than $4 million, secured by this investor’s superior deed of trust on the property.

However, the complaint alleges that tax-assessor records show an appraised market value of just $2.15 million for the property, leaving investors at substantial risk of losing their entire investments.

At the SEC’s request, the Court issued a temporary restraining order halting the offering, as well as orders freezing defendants’ assets, appointing a receiver, and granting other emergency relief.

The Court has scheduled a hearing for June 28, 2022 on the SEC’s motion for preliminary injunction.

The SEC’s complaint charges Templeton, Boron, BC Holdings, and United with violating the securities-registration provisions of Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act of 1933 and the antifraud provisions of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder.

In its complaint, the SEC seeks permanent injunctions, civil penalties, and disgorgement of ill-gotten gains, with prejudgment interest, against each defendant.

The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Melanie K. Good and Jody Z. Moore and was supervised by Timothy S. McCole and Eric R. Werner of the Fort Worth Regional Office.

The litigation is being conducted by Matthew J. Gulde and supervised by B. David Fraser.

Securities And Exchange Commission v. Boron Capital, LLC


District Court, S.D. Texas, Judge Al Bennett


Albert Black, III

So we were swingin’ past Blake’s YouTube channel with over 300 videos promoting his ponzi scam and we really thought that would be shut down, but he’s still posting away new videos.

What’s even more curious is this N.D. Texas case has been redirected on courtlistener, rather than shown as two separate but related case, e.g. as a separate and additional district claim to property. We find that unusual to say the least.

Update July 1, the redirect has mysteriously been fixed, N.D. Texas case is back where it should be, on it’s own docket and page.

The case is assigned to Judge Al Bennett’s chambers in S.D. Houston.

So there’s somethin’ goin’ on and we’ll be monitoring closely as this case is all about the $$$$.

Boron Capital, LLC. is named after the element Boron; an extremely rare element that in certain forms is stronger than a diamond.

Boron has applied its investment strategy during varying market conditions by identifying supply-demand disproportions and fulfilling market needs in industries and locations with strong present and future economies. Boron accomplishes attractive risk-adjusted returns by specializing in sub-markets of real estate that run counter to declines in the national economy and is highly successful in producing substantial returns, despite downturns in the market such as the recession of 2008.

The national resource base and local presence Boron has in each investment location provides Boron with relevant proprietary information to ascertain and execute prudent investment developments.

Boron invests predominantly in corporate housing, luxury wedding venues, specific business niches, multi-family apartments, and hotels.

The sign of true con men is to make a video about Scams when you’re under investigation by the SEC who file a federal lawsuit the day you publish this video.

Just lookin’ at the pair of them, they are so uncomfortable in this video as they know they are in very hot water with the Federal government and it will take all their sales skills to negotiate this case, which we expect should lead to criminal lawsuits as well.

But this is Texas, and the government and judiciay just love a scam artist – so they have their best chance to ‘settle’ the charge(s) of financial crimes in Texas.
