This First Amended Complaint seeks to unfreeze the brokerage account of Plaintiff Black Forest International, LLC, which has been frozen as a result of the Defendants wrongful conduct, including the refusal to issue a dividend that BFI is owed. BFI seeks injunctive relief releasing its brokerage account and ordering issuance of the dividend, and monetary damages caused by Defendants’ wrongful conduct. 2. BFI bought common stock shares in Pearl Asian Mining Industries, Inc. (“PAIM”), from Global Development Partners (“GDP”). BFI is informed and believes that GDP’s president is Randy Lithicum. BFI was introduced to GDP and Mr. Lithicum by Mario Pino. Unbeknownst to BFI at the time, Pino and Lithicum were part of a complicated network of securities scam operators intending to defraud BFI through a scheme of manipulating, first, the transfer of the purchased PAIM stock certificates and, ultimately, a dividend owed on the PAIM stock. 3. BFI is further informed and believes that the scheme involved the active participation of a transfer agent named David Korman, who goes by an assortment of aliases and who initially gained notoriety as a founder of a fictitious country known as the Dominion of Melchezedek. BFI is informed and believes that Elvira Pearl Asian, the namesake of PAIM and a self-represented executive of PAIM, is involved and also goes by a variety of pseudonyms and may be the wife of David Korman. BFI is further informed and believes that these individuals have been named as defendants in multiple civil complaints around the country and they are the object of investigations by federal regulating agencies.
