Tropical Beverage put out several pay to print press releases over the next 4 years always pumping the company but rarely giving any details
This is interesting - 3/31/04 when and amendment was filed with the state of Florida raising the number of authorized shares the attorney that signed the letter was Michael Spadaccini. He is the same lawyer that was involved in the US Wind Farming scandal in 2006 with Raymond J. McNamee. Michael Spadaccini registered several of the businesses entities that were used to sell unregistered shares to the public to make money off the scam. He himself was gifted unregistered shares to sell. http://www.sunbiz.org/pdf/70497247.pdf http://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/2006/lr19802.htm http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/comp19311.pdf http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2006/comp19802.pdf
Chris Lotito filed a news release saying he had hired Michael Spadaccini to get the company fully reporting (which obviously never happened) http://www.allbusiness.com/legal/legal-services-lawyers/5597945-1.html
No 2004 annual report was filed and the company went into bad standing with the state of Florida.
10/28/04 they filed to have the company reinstated again. http://www.sunbiz.org/pdf/70296997.pdf
11/1/04 Tropical Beverage Inc. filed a Reg D: (don't really get the misspelled name or the late date of the filing) http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/browse-edgar?action=getcompany&CIK=0001307698&owner=exclude&count=40
11/10/04 Tropical Beverage Inc. put out a press release saying it was teaming up with Nutmeg Group Inc. (who was paying them $1,000,000) to expand and get back on the OTC exchange: (they never filed anything and never got back to the OTC) http://www.allbusiness.com/marketing-advertising/marketing-techniques/5546258-1.html
The company failed to file it's 2006 annual report and went into bad standing again in the state of Florida.
During the next 2 years press releases continue to go out for the company. They have some legal issues with Nutmeg Group Inc who accuses them of frauded investors with false statements/press releases while giving themselves lots of unreported shares which were then sold through other business entities and the money kept in separate bank accounts away from the Tropical Beverage Inc books. http://siliconinvestor.advfn.com/readmsg.aspx?msgid=22137405 http://www.allbusiness.com/legal/legal-services-litigation/5379249-1.html

9/24/10 they went back into bad standing again in the state of Florida for not filing the 2010 annual report
They are currently an inactive business entity in the state of Florida
They are not currently in good standing in the state of Illinois either.
No filings were ever done with the SEC since 2001 despite 3 name changes and 3 symbol changes
Both Chris Lotito and Raymond J. McNamee were involved in the PTRZ scam and that's what led me to the ViviCell International, Inc. forum. I was just looking for any additional information that could be found.
