Important Update

Please note that some victims have received a letter on United States Department of the Treasury letterhead claiming that a government program was created to help investors recover their losses from fraudulent transactions, asking for documents relating to those transactions. Some victims have also received calls from the signatory of the letter, Robert O’Malley. The Department of Justice has confirmed that this letter is a fraud and that this individual should not be provided with any information. A copy of the fraudulent letter can be found here.

This is the official website for the Gunter Claims Administration, as authorized by the United States Department of Justice. This administration is the result of the United States initiating a Remission process to facilitate the return of forfeited assets to victims of fraud in connection with United States v. Gunter, et al., Case No. 8:08-cr-00172-T-35EAJ, in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Garden City Group, LLC ("GCG") was retained by the United States Department of Justice to serve as the Remission Administrator of the forfeited funds.


Background

In February 2013, the United States initiated the Remission process to facilitate the return of forfeited money to eligible victims of frauds perpetrated by defendant Paul Gunter and others (the “Defendants”). Remission occurs when forfeited assets are returned to the victims of the crime underlying the forfeiture. Authority to grant Remission rests with the United States Attorney General, as delegated to the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section of the United States Department of Justice.

The Defendants were charged with violations of United States federal law involving Rocky Mountain Gold Mining, Inc., Mobilestream, Inc. (also known as (“a/k/a”) Mobilestream Oil), Nanoforce, Inc., RegalTech, Inc. (a/k/a Asante Networks), and FOREX (foreign exchange investment a/k/a Continental Clearing). Evidence presented at trial also established that the Defendants were involved in relevant uncharged fraudulent activity involving the following entities: IQ Webquest (a/k/a SpeechLink Communications), Turquoise Development, and Transglobal Oil (a/k/a Transglobal). The Remission process is limited to individuals who invested in one or more of the eight bolded entities listed above (collectively, the “Eligible Entities”). Investments in other entities are not eligible in this administration.
