POMPANO BEACH, Fla. - July 24, 2020 - PRLog -- Japanese Investors have hired the securities arbitration law firm Soreide Law Group to recover their more than $900,000 in losses from investments made through Bankoh Investment Services, Inc. ("Bankoh"), and Yoko K. Faria ("Farias") located in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Claimants, who were originally banking clients of Bankoh, were assigned Farias as their financial advisor and were looking for the most conservative investments to protect the proceeds from the sale of a condo in Hawaii. Farias and Bankoh presented to the Claimants Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) Ltd. ("Northstar") investments to what the Claimants understood to offer full principal protection.

The lawsuit, filed by securities arbitration firm of Soreide Law Group, alleges that BANKOH broker FARIAS offered multiple verbal and written assurances that Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) investments were safe, secure and that they would just have to pay a small surrender fee to get their money out at anytime. Bankoh and Farias ended up investing $900,000 of the Claimant's money into two separate Northstar contracts. In late 2018, Northstar, was acquired by North Carolina-based conglomerate called Global Bankers. This company was ultimately owned by Greg Lindberg. Mr. Lindberg was subsequently indicted on corruption charges in his home state of North Carolina in early 2019. No funds have been forthcoming on any of the Claimants' redemption requests. It is unclear why Respondents' would recommend an investment based in Bermuda when many more liquid, higher yielding and safer investments were readily available in the United States. But for the Respondents alleged assurances about their principal and interest being fully guaranteed the Claimants would have never made this categorically unsuitable investment.

The investigation of Farias and Bankoh is ongoing by Soreide Law Group and it is likely that many other customers also bought Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) Ltd.
