BULLETIN: Judge Extends TelexFree Claims Deadline

newtelexfreelogoBULLETIN: At the request of Trustee Stephen B. Darr, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Melvin S. Hoffman has extended the deadline to file TelexFree claims until Dec. 31, 2016, at 4:30 p.m. Prevailing Eastern Time.

The deadline had been Sept. 26.

Darr asked for the extension on Sept. 21.

Why was the extension needed?

“The Trustee has determined that, given the unique circumstances of these cases, an extension of the bar date is appropriate.,” Darr advised Hoffman. “These circumstances include the number of participants involved in the Debtors’ program, the geographical dispersion of participants throughout the world, language barriers, and the time that participants may need to complete the assembly of records and to seek assistance in completing the ePOC.”

About 80,000 claims had been filed through Sept. 20, Darr noted.

With a scheme such as TelexFree that affected hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people, it seems likely that many, many more claims could be filed.

Claims must be filed through TelexFreeClaims.com.
