The Receiver is monitoring all of the phone calls and emails received from investors and others and is keeping detailed records of investor contact information, amount invested, and other pertinent issues. Further, the appointed Receivers in the United States and St. Vincent are working diligently to identify and seize assets in an effort to maximize the value of the Receivership Estate out of which investors’ claims will be satisfied. The Receivers have closed all of the Defendants’ offices and are working with the Securities and Exchange Commission to review documents and other records pertinent to investor issues, the claims asserted in the SEC’s Complaint, and more. Additionally, the Receivers are working with international and domestic financial and criminal authorities as investigations into William Wise and all other Defendants continue.
Please continue to contact the Receiver via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A detailed status report will be made available via this Web site in the near future. In the interim, please note that the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas entered injunctions against the Defendants and Relief Defendants, copies of which are available on this Web site.
