The Peiffer Rosca Wolf securities attorneys are preparing to take action on behalf of UDF investors against a number of broker-dealer firms who sold UDF investments, and other entities and individuals involved with the UDF programs. Investors who purchased UDF investments through a financial professional may have a cause of action against the professional’s firm and may be eligible to recover the losses incurred as a result of the investment.

UDF Ponzi Scheme Allegations, Subsequent FBI Search Raise Questions as to United Development Funding
The recent issues involving United Development Funding come after an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission that started in 2014, allegations by a hedge fund manager that United Development Funding is running a "Ponzi-like" real estate investment scheme, and a recent FBI raid at the UDF offices.
United Development Funding's top officers were recently subpoenaed to provide business documents to a federal grand jury. Neither UDF nor its officers or directors have been charged with any wrongdoing. This comes after trading was suspended by NASDAQ in United Development Funding IV on February 18, 2016, following a drop in UDF IV's share price to $3.20 and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's raid of the United Development Funding office in Texas earlier that same day.
