The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the office of United Development Funding on February 18, 2016. According to reports, a number of computers and documents were taken from the scene. The Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane securities attorneys Jason kane and Joe Peiffer are investigating the matter.
The FBI raid comes after United Development Funding disclosed that it was part of a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation that started April 2014. Recently, hedge fund manager Kyle Bass has been launched udfexposed.com to share his belief that United Development Funding is running a “Ponzi-like” real estate investment scheme.

The Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane investor rights lawyers take most cases of this type on a contingency fee basis and advance the case costs, and only get paid for their fees and costs out of money they recover for their clients.
