SEC Shuts Down Cloud Computing Scam Targeting Asians, Hispanics

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday said it has shut down a worldwide pyramid scheme that falsely promised fast gains to tens of thousands of Asian-American, Hispanic and foreign investors from cloud computing services.

A federal judge on Thursday granted the regulator's request for an asset freeze over entities operating as WCM and WCM777, which are based near Los Angeles and in Hong Kong and run by Ming Xu of Temple City, California.

WCM and WCM777 allegedly raised more than $65 million since March 2013 by promising people they could double their money in 100 days by investing between $399 and $1,999 in cloud services such as website hosting, data storage and software support.

But instead, according to the SEC, Xu and the WCM entities would use some new money to pay older investors, and spent other funds on two California golf courses and other properties, and to play the stock market. Xu is also known as Phil Ming Xu.

U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder in Los Angeles imposed the asset freeze and ordered a temporary receiver over the defendants' assets. The SEC is also seeking to recoup illegal gains and impose civil penalties.

The case is SEC v. World Capital Market Inc et al, U.S. District Court, Central District of California, No. 14-02334.

Fandango, Credit Karma in Security-Flaw Settlement

The Federal Trade Commission says the mobile apps of movie ticket seller Fandango and credit report provider Credit Karma may have exposed millions of users' sensitive personal information, including credit card data and social security numbers.

The FTC said Friday that the companies failed to properly secure their apps for several years, potentially exposing information users sent or received through the apps.

Fandango and Credit Karma fixed the security issue last year. The companies say they are not aware of any individual's information being stolen. The FTC says that would be difficult to trace.

Fandango, owned by cable provider Comcast Corp., and Credit Karma agreed to settle the FTC's charges.
