SEC Obtains Final Judgment Against Defendant, Bingqing Yang of Luca International, LLC in Oil Company Scheme Targeting Chinese-Americans and Eb-5 Investors

WASHINGTON, DC (STL.News) On June 9, 2021, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California entered a final judgment against Bingqing Yang, the CEO of Luca International, LLC, in a previously filed action against eight defendants alleging an affinity fraud scheme that generated more than $68 million from illegal sales of securities in an oil and gas venture.  The entry of a judgment against Yang fully resolves the Commission’s lawsuit.
