WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating Zhunrize Inc. ("Zhunrize" or the "Company") and its CEO Jeff Pan for potential securities fraud. (Case Number 1:14-cv-03030-RWS)
On September 22, 2014, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") commenced a lawsuit against Zhunrize and Jeff Pan for defrauding more than 77,000 investors of more than $105 million in a massive pyramid scheme. The SEC's complaint alleges that Zhunrize, an Atlanta-based multilevel marketing company, purported to sell "memberships" to online stores through which "members" can sell merchandise. The complaint, however, alleges that Zhunrize operates as a fraudulent pyramid scheme because its commission structure is based on the continual recruitment of new members with the most lucrative returns dependent on the downline recruitment of other members through store sales irrespective of any product sales. Until more recently, Zhunrize did not disclose to its members that substantially all of its revenue (more than 98%) has come from the sale of memberships, not product sales from the online stores. A copy of the complaint is available upon request.
As a result of the foregoing news, Andrews & Springer has opened an investigation to determine whether the "memberships" offered by Zhunrize were unregistered securities, the selling of which would violate Section 12(a)(1) of the Securities Act of 1933.
