Zeek Rewards’ Dawn Wright-Olivares Loses ‘Several Motor Vehicles’ To Receiver In Cross-Border Ponzi Case; More Actions Coming Against International ‘Winners’ And Vendors
Bell also signaled to Senior U.S. District Judge Graham C. Mullen that lawsuits may be coming against alleged international Zeek vendors such as Payza and SolidTrustPay, both of which earlier were involved in the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme and are Ponzi-forum darlings.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has been soliciting information on Payza since at least December 2013. Last month, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission identified SolidTrustPay as a vendor for the alleged CashFlowBot (Dollar Monster) Ponzi scheme that operated out of the U.S. state of Georgia.
On another front, Zeek’s former COO — Dawn Wright-Olivares — doesn’t get to keep her cars.
“In the first quarter, the Receiver also took possession of several motor vehicles as part of the settlement with Defendant Dawn Wright-Oliveras,” Bell informed Mullen. “The Receiver has retained an auctioneer and intends to liquidate these vehicles during the second quarter of 2015.”
Wright-Olivares, an alleged Zeek “insider,” has been charged criminally and civilly by U.S. authorities. She has settled the federal civil charges and pleaded guilty in the criminal case. In addition, she faced litigation from Bell.
Bell’s forensic team has tracked Zeek money all over the world. The receiver already has sued alleged “winners” with addresses in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the British Virgin Islands and Norway.
It won’t end there, he advised Mullen in a quarterly update to the court filed yesterday.
“The Receiver expects to file lawsuits against foreign net winners in additional countries during the second quarter of 2015,” he wrote.
News that Bell intended to expand his efforts to gather money for an estimated 800,000 victims of Zeek’s cross-border scheme was received while the nation of Thailand was squaring off against UFunClub/UToken, yet another scheme pushed by MLMers/network-marketers.
UFunClub/UToken possibly gathered more than $1.17 billion, according to reports in Thai media. Questions have been raised about whether North American “sovereign citizens” were involved in the “program” and a separate venture known as SVM Global Initiative.
So-called “sovereigns” were involved in the $119 million AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme in 2008. ASD was pushed in part by Frederick Mann, the purported operator of multiple fraud schemes. Mann appears to have had sympathy for Francis Schaeffer Cox, an Alaskan “sovereign” and militia man implicated in a plot to murder public officials.
A scheme known as Profitable Sunrise also appears to have been pushed in part by “sovereign citizens.”
