In July, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) filed charges against Medical Capital, indicating that it conducting a number of questionable transactions with itself, some of which appeared to include receivables that did not actually exist. The SEC also indicated that the company made investments that had nothing to do with medical receivables, such as investing $7 million into a mobile phone application consisting of live video feed of a hamster in a cage, and $20 million into a movie.

The class action lawsuit over Medical Capital Notes alleges the brokerage firms violated federal securities laws by selling notes that were not registered with the SEC. The lawsuit also alleges that Medical Capital investments were misrepresented due to false and misleading information given out about the track records, the qualifications of those managing the company and the overall risks of the investments.

A number of investors have also filed individual Medical Capital lawsuit arbitration claims against their brokers through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to recoup their losses. The claims allege that through basic due diligence, brokerage firms should have discovered the Medical Capital fraud and irregularities.
