SEC Files Action On Fuelless Motor Fraud

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has filed an action against GMC Holding Corporation and its CEO, Richard Brace, for defrauding investors by issuing false press releases touting the company's development of a motor technology device capable of generating unlimited energy.

On February 22, 2008, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed an action against GMC Holding Corporation (GMC) and its chief executive officer, Richard Brace, for defrauding investors by issuing false press releases touting the company's development of a motor technology device capable of generating unlimited energy and negotiations to sell this technology for hundreds of millions of dollars. The Commission's complaint further alleges that these false press releases enabled GMC and Brace to raise more than $2 million from investors through illegal unregistered offerings of the company's stock.

According to the Commission's complaint, GMC and Brace issued press releases in 2005 falsely claiming independent tests, issued by a professional engineer, on the motor device showed it was able to produce more energy than it consumed.  In reality, according to the complaint, the press releases claiming that the motor device produced more energy than it consumed failed to include the professional engineer's limitations, namely that the efficiency lasted only a few moments and that they were unable to duplicate the results in subsequent tests.

The complaint also alleges that GMC and Brace issued false press releases in February and March 2006 stating that it was negotiating with unnamed S&P 500 corporations to acquire the company's technology for $300 - 500 million. These press releases, drafted by Brace, were utterly false.  GMC and Brace never contacted, much less negotiated with, an S&P corporation, or any other company, regarding the sale of the company's technology.

According to the complaint, GMC's false press releases artificially pumped up the company's share price and trading volume and helped GMC raise more than $2 million from investors through illegal unregistered stock offerings, which provided GMC's only source of revenue.

The Commission's complaint charges that the defendants violated Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) by conducting an unregistered offering of securities and making material misrepresentations and omissions to investors. 

The Commission's complaint seeks a final judgment permanently enjoining defendants from further securities laws violations, ordering defendants to disgorge their ill-gotten gains, and assessing civil penalties. The complaint further seeks an order barring Brace from serving as an officer or director of a public company and from participating in any offering of a penny stock.

At odds with the tenor of this severe censure, a notice posted on the GMC Holdings Corp website on Feb. 25, 2008 by Brace states: "We are continuing to pursue possible merger candidates and are in discussions with an entity which is in the environmental and alternative energy arena. This organization could serve as a very viable candidate to assist in the ongoing development of our electro magnetic technology."

On March 8, 2006 the Commission temporarily suspended trading in GMC's securities (Release No. 53442) and instituted administrative proceedings against GMC for failure to make its required periodic filings (Release No. 53448). On April 5, 2006, the Commission issued a settled order deregistering GMC's securities, finding the company had failed to file the required reports of a publicly traded company (Release No. 53601). The Commission acknowledges the assistance of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in this matter.

The GMC Hodings website mentions these actions and has a form for shareholders to sign up for private email notifications of additional business developments.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
