The pending complaint alleges damages of $250,000. In a comment on the disclosure, Mr. Keelin denied the allegations, writing: “I disagree with this statement of claim and will vigorously defend myself.”

A second investor complaint, filed in 2019, alleged that as a representative of Money Concepts Capital Corp., Mr. Keelin breached contract and violated securities law when he used the proceeds of a home equity loan to invest in GPB Automotive “with the promise the investment would generate a 8% return dividends.” In 2020 the complaint reached a settlement of $75,000.
