Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Receiver?

The Receiver is the individual who assumes responsibility for all assets of the entities in receivership in the civil enforcement action brought by the SEC.  He is responsible for determining how the business was operated and where all of the assets are located.  He also is charged with reporting to investors and other interested parties.  Ultimately, the Receiver will determine the amounts owed to individual creditors and investors and will distribute available assets in accordance with a plan approved by the Court.

Will I get my money back?

It is too soon to determine how much investors will receive or when.  The Receiver is working to protect the assets of the entities in receivership, but there is no way to predict at this early date how much will be returned or when that will happen.

How can I stay informed about the progress of this case?

You can contact the Receiver’s office at: (786) 347-2563 or by email at: naturaldiamondsreceivership@lklsg.com. You can also continue to check this website, which is updated on a regular basis.

Is the Receiver my lawyer? Should I hire a lawyer?

The Receiver is not your lawyer, and he cannot provide you with legal advice.  He was appointed by the Court and he is an agent of the Court.  He is executing the mandate of the Court.  As authorized by the Court, the Receiver will be investigating all potential claims or methods of recovery that he can bring for the benefit of investors.

You certainly have the right to hire or consult with your own lawyer.  You can also have that lawyer contact the Receiver if he or she has any questions about the case.

Should I send copies of my papers proving that I am an investor to the Receiver?

Not at this time.

How do I register my information as an investor?

You can submit your information by filling out the Registration Form.  If you have left your information with the Receiver’s office, however, then we have your contact information and you need not submit a Registration Form.
