BULLETIN: Zeek Receiver Sues Alleged ‘Winners’ In United Kingdom

breakingnews72BULLETIN: (3rd update 7 p.m. ET March 6 U.S.A.) The court-appointed receiver in the Zeek Rewards Ponzi- and pyramid case has sued “alleged winners” with addresses in the United Kingdom.

Receiver Kenneth D. Bell identified the defendants as:

Shaun Smith, Bridgnorth, $262,900.31; Peter William Bennett, Wokingham, $257,573.30; Mark Anthony Ferrie, Abergavenny, $212,072.60; Gary Bryan Morris, Abergavenny, $342,405.01; Kalpesh Patel, Newham, London, $140,842.47; Parvis Parvizi, Macclesfield, $90,518.83; Cathal Lambe, Omagh, $90,311.21; Adrian John Hibbert, Sully, $82,103.51; John Noakes, Croydon, London, $59,850.62.

The action against the U.K. defendants is believed to be the second against residents of Europe. Bell sued alleged Zeek winners from Norway last month. The receiver previously sued U.S. residents and residents of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the British Virgin Islands.

Zeek, an MLM “program,” operated from Lexington, N.C. At least three Zeek executives have been charged criminally. Court filings alleged the far-reaching scam that operated over the Internet gathered about $897 million in less than two years.

The SEC sued Zeek in August 2012, alleging a massive fraud scheme involving the sale of unregistered securities.

Bell contends the winners must return their Zeek hauls because they “won” money from victims “in an unlawful combined Ponzi and pyramid scheme.” The case against the U.K. defendants is filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina.

  1. Quick notes: Shaun Smith allegedly had a Zeek user name of “topincometeam.”

    There is a “twitpic” under the name of Shaun Smith with a topincometeam ID that points to Zeek. The twitpic site includes an “I got paid” graphic showing thousands of pounds in payments between May 11, 2012, and June 19, 2012. Can’t tell if the asserted payments were from Zeek because another graphic on the same site shows “I got paid” checks for something else.

  2. Parvis Parvizi should know an obvious ponzi scheme when he sees one.
