Important Information

Third Parties Claiming to be Affiliated with the Receivership

Updated 3/4/2011

Recently, several investors have reported being contacted by an individual or individuals claiming to be able to recover a significant portion of the investor's loss for a large upfront fee.  The individual also requests several years of the investor's tax statements.

The Receiver cannot comment on any actions or claims you may have against third parties relating to your loss.  However, the Receiver is authorized to take exclusive custody, control and possession of all Receivership assets, wherever situated.  All investors and other persons are stayed from, among other things, self-help and attempting to take possession of or interfering with assets of the Receiver Estates.

Only the Court is able to order restitution to Trevor Cook's investors, and only the Court-appointed Receiver is searching (at the Court's direction) for funds in this case.  No other individual or group is related to, approved by, or working with the Receiver, the SEC, the CFTC, or the Court-mandated asset-recovery process in any way.

The Receiver suggests any investor receiving such a call contact their state's attorney general immediately.

The Receiver again reminds investors to be carefuly when giving personal information to anyone.  Be sure to verify that the entity that contacts you is who they purport to be.

 

Fraud Recovery Group

Only the Court is able to order restitution to Trevor Cook’s investors. And only the Court-appointed Receiver is searching (at the Court’s direction) for funds in this case.

Recently, some investors have contacted the Receiver and the SEC to ask if  they were working with a company called “Fraud Recovery Group." Fraud Recovery Group is not related to, approved by, or working with the Receiver, the SEC, or the Court-mandated asset-recovery process in any way.

Several news outlets have also reported that former clients of Bernard Madoff have been targeted by an entity holding itself out as a government agency. This entity is reportedly seeking financial information related to alleged Ponzi schemes, but has no connection with any legitimate government or international entity.

Be careful when giving personal information to anyone. Be sure to verify that the entity that contacts you is who they purport to be.
