As background, on April 7, 2014, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filed an emergency action alleging that JCS Enterprises, Inc., d/b/a JCS Enterprises Services, Inc., T.B.T.I. Inc., Joseph Signore, and Paul L. Schumack II (the "Defendants") were violating the federal securities laws by, among other things, engaging in a Ponzi scheme. As part of the action, the SEC filed a Complaint and sought emergency relief from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, including an Ex Parte Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order to freeze assets and an Emergency Motion Seeking the Appointment of a Receiver over both JCS Enterprises, Inc., d/b/a JCS Enterprises Services, ("JCS") and T.B.T.I. Inc. ("T.B.T.I.") (collectively, the "Receivership Entities"). Specifically, the SEC's Complaint alleges that, from at least 2011 through the present, the Defendants fraudulently raised at least $40 million from hundreds of investors nationwide through the ongoing sale of investments in virtual concierge machines.
On the same day, the Honorable Donald M. Middlebrooks, United States District Judge for the Southern District of Florida, granted the SEC's Emergency Motion Seeking the Appointment of a Receiver and issued an order entitled Amended Receivership Order, which appointed James D. Sallah, Esq. as the Receiver over both JCS and T.B.T.I. This means that the Court ordered Mr. Sallah, in his capacity as the Receiver, to "take immediate possession of all property, assets and estates of every kind of JCS and T.B.T.I., among numerous other things." On April 14, 2014, the Court expanded the Receivership Entities to include a company named My Gee Bo, Inc. On December 11, 2014, the Court again expanded the Receivership Entities to include two companies named JOLA Enterprises Inc. and PSCS Holdings, LLC. On December 12, the Court reappointed Mr. Sallah as Receiver.
Since his initial appointment as Receiver, Mr. Sallah and his engaged professionals, including accountants, lawyers, and investigators, have been working to identify and secure assets of the Receivership Entities. This web site was created to provide information to investors regarding the efforts of the Receiver to discover, marshal, and preserve for the benefit of all investors the funds and assets of the Receivership Entities.
