R.J. Zayed v. Allen et al. ("Winning Investors"), 13-cv-1896 (D. Minn.)

Click here to return to the Receiver Reports page (with current Orders and Filings)
 

The Receiver has identified nearly 200 investors who received more from this Ponzi scheme than they invested. Starting in December 2010, the Receiver sent demand letters to these “winning” investors, informing them of the Receiver’s legal claims against them and offering to settle for their overages. Of those who received letters, the majority have settled with the Receiver. Although the Receiver has made every effort to work with the winning investors to avoid litigation, 27 of these individuals either declined the Receiver’s settlement offer or defaulted on their agreement to return the overages. On July 15, 2013, the Receiver filed a lawsuit against these winning investors to recover funds properly belonging to all the defrauded investors who were victims of Trevor Cook’s Ponzi scheme.
