More Information on the Horizon Ponzi Scheme

As of the end of July 2021, investors in the alleged Ponzi scheme were owed over $110,000,000. On August 20, 2021, the SEC filed a complaint against John J. Woods and his affiliated businesses. Woods and certain investment advisors told investors that they would receive returns of 6-7% interest, guaranteed for two to three years, for non-specific investments in a fund called “Horizon Private Equity.” Investors were not informed that their money would or could be used to pay returns to earlier investors.

Other John J. Woods businesses we are investigating include:

  • Livingston Group Asset Management Company
  • Southport Capital
