A few excerpts from Gary;

1st one from http://patrickpretty.com/2013/12/12/urgent...#comment-72615:
"I just found the receiver’s motion and am surprised that ALL the defendants (both insiders & net winners) are basically individuals (& their small entities). I was curious as to inclusion of overseas individual because according to your article each of them got around 1 million dollar over which might satisfy minimum amount to pursue but I originally thought the receiver already included big institutions such as global banks or brokers claiming tens of million dollars return each in the motion.
The industry specialist describes clawback as “While the courts go through the tedious process of determining who owns what and how they got it, trustees typically “grab the low-hanging fruit first,” Henning added — “the Lamborghinis and the yachts. “All of which raises the question: How much of what gets clawed back will ultimately be left to distribute to victims? Sometimes pennies on the dollar, if that. “Unfortunately, a lot of these bankrupt estates can eat up an awful lot of resources,” said Painter. “. Well, the Zeek receiver stressed a lot about its efficient litigation consolidating numerous small cases in class action that can only be done in this $600 million size with huge number of net winners, relatively big for Ponzi and pyramid scheme.
However, read this http://www.publicintegrity.org/2013/10/10/...-spent-receiver , even $7.2 billion case doesn’t look encouraging progress."
- Isn't Stanford receiver not a court appointed receiver?

2nd one (actually Gary quoted this from another person's post) from http://patrickpretty.com/2014/05/08/zeek-r...#comment-89934:
"Bear it in mind that there has been so many evidences that Ponzi receivers eat up the assets that could have returned to victims if they hadn’t done costly & lengthy clawback, such as Stanford case (Ralph Janvey), Legisi case (Robert D. Gordon), J.V. Huffman case (William Walt Pettit) and more & more. "
- aren't these receivers not appointed by the courts?

Unfortunately, the apple & orange comparison doesn't seem to apply generally.

If Gary is to upset or whatever it is he feels, have him come and here and let him and I have a discussion. Not going to deal with an intermediary any longer including Charlie.

Todd Disner lost his appeal trying to keep his ill-gotten gains from Zeek. The court entered a default judgment against him. Todd didn't like that decision, so he filed a pro se appeal with his usual nonsensical arguments that he should be able to keep his ill-gotten gains. I hope the judge tosses his appeal immediately as frivolous and wasting the courts time.

Kenneth Bell replied to Todd Disner's appeal of the default judgment to the court and said this:

Mr. Disner has failed to meet the threshold showing necessary to succeed on a Rule 60(b) motion, as this Court previously ruled when deciding Mr. Disner’s motion to set aside the entry of default. Furthermore, he has failed to clearly establish any of the grounds necessary to allow the default judgment against him to be vacated. The Receiver does not believe the motion warrants further substantive argument, however, if the Court desires a supplemental analysis or explanation why the motion should be denied, the Receiver respectfully requests the opportunity to supplement this memorandum before the Court renders a decision.

The latest report from the Zeek Receiver:

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE RECEIVER – February 5, 2015

At the end of January we mailed another 8,143 first interim partial distribution checks totaling $12,708,427.80 to claimants holding qualified allowed claims. While I am pleased that we have now mailed distributions to nearly 100,000 claimants and distributed approximately $147 million to victims of the ZeekRewards scheme, I very much regret that nearly 75,000 claimants have not yet completed all the steps necessary to be eligible to receive their distribution. Some 60,000 claimants have not even responded to the Letter of Determination emailed to them. Thousands more have failed to provide the release and OFAC certification required by the Court to be eligible to receive a distribution.

We receive many calls and emails from claimants who have not received a distribution check claiming that they have done all that is required to become eligible. That simply is not correct. I again strongly encourage every claimant that has not yet received a distribution check to log into the Claims Portal (https://cert.gardencitygroup.com/zrwdet/fs/home ), respond to your Letter of Determination if you have not already done so, and, if you accept the Letter of Determination, provide the Release and OFAC certification. We will send a reminder email to all holders of a recognized claim who have not completed these required steps to be eligible for a distribution. We will make the next distribution to those who complete these steps and who have not already received a distribution at the end of April.

Many distribution check recipients have asked whether we will issue IRS Forms 1099 showing the disbursement. We have consulted with tax professionals and determined that the Receivership estate will not issue 1099s, even if requested by the claimant.

Finally, many affiliates call and email asking for a claim status report or help with the claims process. Because there are 175,000 claimants we decided not to offer personal, individualized assistance by phone or email. The costs of such assistance would be great and would significantly reduce the amount of money we have and will have available to send to all victim claimants. Please see my message of November 25, 2014 for further explanation of our reasoning.

We continue to pursue additional recoveries for the benefit of the victim claimants, with great success. You can read about our efforts in our quarterly status reports filed with the Court, available on the Case Documents page of this website. Thank you, as always, for your continuing patience and support.

Judge Mullen issued his ruling regarding the "Class" status of all the major winners of Zeek:

Senior U.S. District Judge Graham C. Mullen has certified a class of more than 9,000 alleged “winners” of more than $1,000 in the Zeek Rewards scheme.

Receiver Kenneth D. Bell sued more than 10 named “winners” in February 2014 in a case styled “Kenneth D. Bell v. Todd Disner, et al.” The suit included class claims against about 9,400 winners of smaller sums.

The ruling by Judge Mullen effectively means the winners of the smaller sums are now defendants who will be represented by the same lawyers representing the larger winners. Bell “proposed that one or more of the following named Defendants serve as Class Representatives: Trudy Gilmond and Trudy Gilmond, LLC; Jerry Napier; Darren Miller; Rhonda Gates; Innovation Marketing, LLC; Aaron Andrews; Shara Andrews; Global Internet Formula, Inc.; T. LeMont Silver; Karen Silver; and Durant Brockett,” Mullen wrote.

Bell asked for the class certification in July 2014, explaining that he “asked that the Court appoint one or more of the largest net winners sued by name as class representatives because they will, by virtue of their own defense to the same claims, be adequate and appropriate representatives for the rest of the Net Winner Class.”

If the Receiver herein was forced to file separate actions against the 9,400 Defendants, he would certainly be risking inconsistent and varying adjudications, Judge Mullen wrote. “If one court found that a fraudulent transfer occurred, but another court did not, then those inconsistent decisions would place the Receiver in a stalemated or conflicted position. If the Receiver attempted to enforce a valid judgment against a particular Defendant, that Defendant might refuse to pay because other Defendants similarly situated were not held to be liable for the same underlying conduct related to ZeekRewards. An additional layer of inconsistency would arise if the Receiver attempts to settle a lawsuit, but the Net Winner Defendant is not willing to compromise since that Defendant is already aware of the inconsistent adjudication based on the same set of facts. These anomalous results would leave the Receiver in an untenable position and circumstances such as these are precisely why class actions exist.”

Judge Mullen specifically found that, with 9,400 defendants, Bell had satisfied the “numerosity requirement” to make a class-action reasonable and efficient. He also found that Bell had established a “commonality factor” in that the smaller winners had things in common with the larger ones.

“Here, the proposed Class Representatives’ interests are not antagonistic to, but rather aligned with, the interests of the unnamed class members because they share the common objective to defend against having to return funds received from ZeekRewards as demanded by the Receiver. Thus, there is no conflict which would defeat adequacy of representation.”

In a footnote to the ruling, Judge Mullen noted: That Court is mindful that despite the large winnings of the Named Defendants, it is possible that much of the net winnings has been dissipated. As stated at the last status conference in this matter, the Court fully expects that the Named Defendants will provide the Receiver with any and all evidence of their financial status and the location of all net winnings received from ZeekRewards, including deposition testimony as to the same. Such financial transparency will not only aid the Court in its determination as to what extent the Receiver shall be required to fund the defense of the class, but will also undoubtedly aid in any settlement discussions.
