July 30, 2014
  Washington D.C.--(Newsfile Corp. - July 29, 2014) -     The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced fraud charges against a penny stock company and its CEO linked to a scam artist whom the agency separately charged earlier this month.     The SEC alleges that MSGI Technology Solutions and its CEO J. Jeremy Barbera defrauded investors by touting a joint venture to develop and manage solar energy farms across the country on land purportedly owned by an electricity provider operated by Christopher Plummer. Barbera and Plummer co-authored press releases falsely portraying MSGI as a successful renewable energy company on the brink of profitable solar energy projects. However, MSGI had no operations, customers, or revenue at the time, and Plummer’s company did not actually possess any of the assets or financing needed to develop the purported solar energy farms.         The SEC previously charged Plummer and a different penny stock company and CEO that similarly issued false press releases depicting a thriving business that in reality was struggling financially.         Barbera and MSGI agreed to settle the SEC’s charges.         “It is vital that information disseminated by a company into the marketplace be corroborated and truthful,” said Sanjay Wadhwa, senior associate director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office.
