  4. SEC Emergency Action Stops “Meta 1 Coin” Scam March 23, 2020 Dave Schmidt, Robert Dunlap, and Nicole Bowdler (Source: YouTube/Facebook) Press release from The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that it has obtained an asset freeze and other emergency relief to halt an ongoing securities fraud perpetrated by a former state senator and two others who bilked investors in and outside the U.S. The SEC’s complaint alleges that Florida residents Robert Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler worked with former Washington state senator David Schmidt to market and sell a purported digital asset called the “Meta 1 Coin” in an unregistered securities offering conducted through the Meta 1 Coin Trust. The complaint alleges that the defendants made numerous false and misleading statements to potential and actual investors, including claims that the Meta 1 Coin was backed by a $1 billion art collection or $2 billion of gold, and that an accounting firm was auditing the gold assets. The defendants also allegedly told investors that the Meta 1 Coin was risk-free, would never lose value and could return up to 224,923%. According to the complaint, the defendants never distributed the Meta 1 Coins and instead used investor funds to pay personal expenses and funnel proceeds to two others, Pramana Capital Inc. and Peter K. Shamoun. The complaint alleges that some of the investor funds were used to buy luxury automobiles, including a $215,000 Ferrari. In all, the complaint alleges the defendants raised more than $4.3 million from more than 150 investors in and outside the U.S. “As we allege, the defendants made audacious claims about the Meta 1 Coin and would say almost anything to separate investors from their money,” said David Peavler, Regional Director of the SEC’s Fort Worth Regional Office. “Investors should always look skeptically at promoters who claim that their investment cannot lose value or that investors will receive massive returns.” The SEC’s complaint, filed in the Western District of Texas (Austin Division) on March 16, 2020, and unsealed today, charges the Meta 1 Coin Trust, Dunlap, Bowdler, and Schmidt with violating antifraud and securities registration provisions of the federal securities laws. The SEC seeks permanent and conduct-based injunctions, disgorgement of allegedly ill-gotten gains with prejudgment interest, and civil penalties against the defendants. The complaint also charges Pramana and Shamoun as relief defendants and seeks disgorgement of allegedly ill-gotten gains with prejudgment interest. The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Christopher Reynolds and Carol Hahn, and supervised by Jim Etri, B. David Fraser, and Eric Werner. The litigation is being conducted by Jennifer Reece.

  6. By Kollen Post US SEC Freezes Assets of Alleged Crypto Scam Backed by a Former State Senator 3339Total views 106Total shares Listen to article 2:55 NEWS The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has frozen the assets of Meta 1 Coin, an alleged crypto scam backed by a former state senator that promised investors returns of up to 224,923% without ever having any actual tokens. Per a March 20 announcement from the SEC, the regulator initially froze Meta 1’s assets on March 16 and is charging the firm’s operators with fraud. Currently, the SEC seems to be pursuing fines and disgorgement rather than jailtime for those involved. Claims of art and gold assets Meta 1 claimed its tokens were backed, but the cited backing shifted over time, from some $1 billion of rare art to, more recently, $2 billion in gold. Meta 1’s LinkedIn page currently reads ““META 1 is a Private Digital Currency backed by humanity's greatest assets. We provide the liquidity of gold.” The SEC’s complaint says “In reality, the Coin is backed by nothing.” Former state senator and repeat scammer One of the major backers of Meta 1 named in the complaint is Dave Schmidt, a former Republican Senator for the state of Washington. Shady dealings checker Schmidt’s past. He lost a re-election campaign for his seat in Washington in 2006, after which he faced investigation for misspending over $40,000 in campaign funds. At least one commentator spotted Schmidt feigning access to vast stores of gold via his website back in 2016 — two years before the SEC says Meta 1 began operations. Sky-high promises The SEC claims Meta 1 managed to raise over $4.3 million since April 2018 by promising investors “exorbitant” returns. According to the complaint: Schmidt and Dunlap represented that each Coin (sold for $22.22 or $44.44, depending on when it was purchased) would be worth up to $50,000—up to a 224,923% return—as a ‘very conservative value.’” The complaint continues to reject Meta 1’s claims of providing a backed coin: An ongoing scam The SEC describes Meta 1 as an “ongoing securities fraud.” As of press time Meta 1’s website — which features the central pitch “Empowering Humanity” — was still online. Its Twitter and LinkedIn pages had also been active recently. As Cointelegraph reported earlier this month, a whistleblower recently outed a Ukrainian Bitcoin-trading scam that allegedly netted $70 million in 2019 and employed 200 people.

  12. Optimistic cautious offer of the ministerial cabinet within two weeks Sunday, March 29, 2020 Baghdad / Muhannad Abdul-Wahab A state of cautious optimism prevails in some political forces, with the ability of Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi to finish his government booth and present it to a vote before the House of Representatives during the next two weeks, explaining that the accelerated moves by the taxpayer and his dialogues with the various active political forces confirm the near completion of this file Although other groups cling to their positions rejecting the commission. The deputy of the Alliance Alliance, Alaa Al-Rubaie, said in an interview with Al-Sabah: “The dispute within the Shiite house in the nomination of Adnan Al-Zarfi is due in part to the fact that the forces rejecting him feel his strength and are afraid of a prime minister who stands before its interests and privileges,” stressing that “ Al-Zarfi will announce his cabinet in the next two weeks. In turn, member of the House of Representatives Naji Idris confirmed what his colleague Al-Rubaie went to saying that the House of Representatives may hold a session to vote on the new government during the next two weeks. Idriss told Al-Sabah that during the next two weeks, the cabins of the Prime Minister-designate, Adnan Al-Zarfi, will be presented to a maximum of the House of Representatives, indicating that there are no problems in holding a voting session in case the Presidency of Parliament calls for it. For his part, the deputy for the Alliance of Raiders of Riyad Al-Masoudi said: "The Prime Minister-designate has intensified his meetings and dialogues in the past two days, both with the Alliance of Forces and Speaker of Parliament Muhammad Al-Halbousi in the city of Fallujah and other meetings with ambassadors of various countries, in addition to his meeting with the United Nations envoy Janine Blackshart ". Al-Masoudi added in an interview with “Al-Sabah” that “the two tribes in front of the Prime Minister-designate are the Al-Fateh coalition, which clearly announced its rejection of him, and the other obstacle is the Kurdistan Alliance, whether the National Union, the Democratic Party, or the Change Front, which stresses the need to maintain its strategic relations with Shiite political forces. Al-Masoudi pointed out that if some of the main Shiite forces insist on rejecting the taxpayer then he will face difficulty in persuading the rest of the partners in the political process, noting that "this week will be decisive in proving Zarrafi's ability to persuade other political forces to pass his ministerial cabinet." In the context, Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Muhammad al-Ghazi, affirmed that "the constitutional period of the Prime Minister-designate has not ended, and there will be approximately 17 days left to complete his dialogues." Al-Ghazi added, in a press statement, that "voting on the ministerial cabinet needs a regular quorum, as is the vote on laws," noting that "the only solution in light of the current economic and health crises is to accelerate the formation of a government with full powers, and the political blocs have to bear the responsibility Completely, either that Al-Zarfi apologizes if there is a real refusal for him and the President of the Republic submits another costly name, or that the constitutional deadline expires and the cabinet is passed or rejected. ” Al-Ghazi said: “What we have noticed is that the Kurdish and Sunni blocs have no objection to taking over Zarafi, unlike what was at the time of the commissioner, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi. To high-level understandings, because the situation in the country does not allow political polemics or tensions, but rather the exit of a strong government with which everyone stands to face challenges.

  13. 3-29-2020 Intel Guru Frank26 far as when the Iraqi stock exchange will reopen and as far as is it related to the reinstatement of the Iraqi dinar I don't know. You think it would be. If it is - everything [budget, cabinet, rate] before they open is logical isn't it? That's my option... 3-29-2020 Newshound Guru Pimpy ...we need more than a rate change to happen in Iraq in order for us to benefit from a rate change. It must be recognized internationally in most cases for banks to do the exchange. Some Chase locations are already making exceptions regardless of the currency being recognized internationally or not. You can exchange the dinar there...there's gonna be a fee once the exchange happens. I believe it's around 1%. They'll charge you 1% fee to make the exchange...just for the sake of it I'm gonna use round numbers. Let's say I have a thousand dinar and it's now $3 for every one dinar. I would deposit my 1,000 dinar into my account and they would exchange it and in my account would reflect 3,000 US dollars...If I had one million dinars and it was 3 to 1...(Post 1 of 2)... 3-29-2020 Newshound Guru Pimpy I would deposit that one million dinars into my account and in there would reflect 3 million U.S. dollars. That's how it works. And there would be a fee taken out...If you're expecting to come skipping out with millions of dollars in a bag - that's not going to happen. Once the money is put into your account you will have access to some of it right away. I think for some banks there is a process in which they take the currencies and they will send it off and there's a slight hold on far as you wanting the cash money itself, the paper money in exchange, you will have access to X amount of it upfront and then you have to order the rest. If you wanted a million dollars in cash you would have to tell your bank manager to order the money for you because a lot of banks don't hold that much money...(Post 2 of 2)...

  15. I listened to his recent audio. He said pretty much Iraq can add value to stay afloat and increase when the U.S markets open and increase the rate. Or they could wait to the markets open and come in at a higher value which would benefit us. He said long term trend is the oil will be low and so they have to do something quick. He said we're in a phenomenal spot right now.
  16. Anyone whose been in this for any length of time understands your frustration and skepticism, Starr. But the@KristiD post definitely lays out the evidence of an impending RV. As someone pointed out the value of hopium after I called foul recently, we sometimes need these kind of posts to keep the faith. I was really hoping it was going to happen today, but Easter would be great!!
  17. I like your thoughts Kristi, wishing it so. We are all ready for this thing to pop, and perhaps NOW is the best time for it to happen. What else does IRAQ need to line up before they re value their currency?
  18. Country music star Joe Diffie, '90s hitmaker, dies from coronavirus complications at 61 Matthew LeimkuehlerDave Paulson Nashville Tennessean 0:17 0:59 Joe Diffie, a Grammy Award-winning country music hitmaker, died Sunday from coronavirus complications. He was 61. Diffie's representative Scott Adkins confirmed his death in a news release. The singer told fans Friday that he tested positive for the virus and asked for privacy as he received treatment. "We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic,” Diffie said in his statement last week. Earlier this month, he postponed a concert in Georgia, citing coronavirus concerns. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Diffie enjoyed a consistent run of country hits in the early 1990s. "Pickup Man" was among five chart-toppers he scored in the first half of the decade. He moved to Nashville in 1986, after losing his factory job in Oklahoma. "When I got laid off, I was like, ‘Well, you know what, I think I’m just going to try it,’ ” he told radio host Bobby Bones in 2019. “I just loaded up everything I could get in this old beat up car I had, and off I went.” Stars react:Charlie Daniels, Brad Paisley mourn Joe Diffie: 'I'm devastated by the loss of my friend' He took a job at the Gibson guitar plant, and sang on demos for songs that would become hits for Ricky Van Shelton, Alabama and Billy Dean. After scoring his first hit as a songwriter (Holly Dunn's "There Goes My Heart Again"), Diffie signed a record deal with Epic, and success immediately followed. He topped the charts with his very first single. 1990's "Home" was a natural fit for a young man chasing fame and fortune in Music City, but in its lyrics, he surmised "the only treasures that I'll ever know / Are long ago and far behind and wrapped up in my memories of home."Though he had numerous top 10 country hits under his belt, Diffie truly hit his commercial stride in 1993 with the release of "Honky Tonk Attitude," his first platinum album. Between it and the platinum follow-up, "Third Rock From The Sun," he scored six more hits, including the chart-topping "Third Rock" title track and ode to rock stardom "Bigger Than The Beatles." As Diffie told Rolling Stone in 2019, the key was “finding songs I really liked and that I related to. Really, it’s not any more complicated than that.” Earlier:Country singer Jan Howard, the Grand Ole Opry's senior member, dies at 91 Still, he nearly balked at recording "John Deere Green," a mid-tempo story of enduring love that would become one of his standards. “I said, ‘Well, we can try it. We can can go into the studio and cut it, and if it doesn’t work out then we scrap it.' Luckily, it worked out,” he told Bones in 2019. In 1998, Diffie earned a Grammy Award for his work on "Same Old Train," an all-star collaboration led by Marty Stuart. A project that paid tribute to songwriting tradition, "Train" featured Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss and many others. Chart success didn't follow Diffie far into the 21st century – his final top 10 hit was 2001's "In Another World." But as nostalgia grew for the country music of the 1990s, Diffie was continuously celebrated by modern stars – never more loudly than on Jason Aldean's "1994," which mentioned Diffie's name more than a dozen times. Diffie delivered his songs with a Southern grit that left a sustainable impact on modern country performers – "(I) got my honky tonk attitude from Joe Diffie," Chris Young sang on 2019's "Raised On Country." But his warm, welcoming voice also endeared him to listeners, and was equally suited for drink-raising anthems and tender ballads.
