APRU/ARTS/BDGR/CAGR/CLDR/EHSI/SSPT/TIVU/USFM - how does 111 bogus opinion letters making 78 billion shares free trading go unnoticed for so long?

I was just reading the Mike Caswell Stock Watch article about the recent SEC litigation against Guy Jean-Pierre on December 7, 2012

http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C:*SEC-2023993&symbol=*SEC&news_region=C

http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2012/comp-pr2012-257.pdf


Which was actually stuff I had posted about months ago:

http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=79162460


Here are the tickers for which Guy Jean-Pierre wrote illegal attorney opinion letters using his niece's name according to the SEC litigation:

Apple Rush Co, Inc (APRU)
Artfest International Inc (ARTS)
Black Dragon Resource Companies (BDGR)
China Food Services (CAGR)
Cloud Centric Inc (CLDR)
Emerging Healthcare Solutions (EHSI)
Shot Spirits Corp (SSPT)
Tivus Inc (TIVU)
US Farms Inc (USFM)


Just with one ticker alone - Artfest International Inc (ARTS), Guy Jean-Pierre illegally helped to make 69,243,164,790 shares free tradings. Guy Jean-Pierre wrote 71 legal opinion letters for ARTS and 29 of those letters came directly from his personal email.

Many of those 69,243,164,790 shares went to toxic financiers and issuers like:

Asher Enterprises
Mazuma
Equititrend
Brothers Realty and Investment Group, LLC

I am curious as to why the SEC didn't give more disclosure in the Complaint about the other 42 legal opinion letters connected to ARTS. Like who used them. Big Apple Consulting/Boost Marketing?



I had read the Complaint last week, but Mike Caldwell did a very nice job of summarizing it in his article.

A very important part from Caldwell's article is this section - especially the part in BOLD:

Quote:
"The allegations against Mr. Jean-Pierre are contained in a civil complaint that the SEC filed on Dec. 6, 2012, in the Southern District of New York. The complaint identifies him as a U.S. lawyer who has moved from Pompano Beach, Fla., to the Dominican Republic. From 2007 to 2010, he was writing attorney opinion letters for pink sheets companies through his Florida law firm, Jean-Pierre and Jean-Pierre LLC.

Mr. Jean-Pierre's problems, as described in the complaint, began in April, 2010, when the pink sheets banned him from writing legal opinions. The pink sheets had concluded that "repeated missing information and inconsistencies in the issuer's disclosure make it obvious that you have not been performing the diligence necessary to continue writing such letters to Pink OTC Markets."

The SEC says the ban would been devastating for Mr. Jean-Pierre's law practice. Once the pink sheets had barred him, transfer agents began refusing to accept letters from him that would allow companies to issue free-trading shares. According to the complaint, Mr. Jean-Pierre quickly came up with a plan to stay in business.

At the time, his niece was a lawyer in Texas and she was looking for work. Mr. Jean-Pierre told her she could assist him, but to do so they would have to form a corporation. Before they could begin, he asked her to send him three copies of her signature and a copy of her driver's licence, the complaint states. The niece complied, and Mr. Jean-Pierre began using her identity to continue issuing letters, the SEC claims. The letters he subsequently wrote included 111 transfer agent letters for nine companies, which made 73 billion shares tradable, according to the SEC."




111 letters written for 9 Companies illegally making 73 billion shares tradable.

Most of these legal opinion letters (if not all) were fraudulent letters that were making stock tradable that was not legally supposed to be free trading.

The Transfer Agents just accept the letters without question? The SEC doesn't notice 73 billion shares trading that should have been allowed to trade?

The main reason that Guy Jean-Pierre was eventually stopped was because grievances were filed against him with the individual state bars and eventually a bar Complaint filed with the state of Florida got the attention of the SEC and the SEC finally acted.


Quote:
"The scheme, as described in the complaint, started to unravel in early 2011. A Texas state bar complaint was filed against Mr. Jean-Pierre's niece for filing fraudulent attorney opinion letters. A similar action began in California as well. Both of those complaints were dismissed after the niece explained that Mr. Jean-Pierre had written the letters without her knowledge and consent, the SEC says. Around the same time, a Florida state bar grievance was filed against Mr. Jean-Pierre for filing fraudulent opinion letters."




This is confirmed in the SEC Complaint:

http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2012/comp-pr2012-257.pdf


Quote:
"On February 18, 2011, a Florida state bar grievance was filed against Jean-Pierre for filing fraudulent attorney opinion letters (the "FL Grievance"). The FL Grievance led to a Notice of Finding of Probable Cause for Further Disciplinary Proceedings being issued against Jean-Pierre on April 19, 2012. On or about October 10, 2012, the Florida state bar filed a complaint against Jean-Pierre with the Supreme Court of Florida."




I am going to work on getting a copy of the Bar Grievances to see what other information might be available from those documents.



------------------



Other publicly traded companies for which Guy Jean-Pierre (under the disguise of his niece) did legal work writing attorney letters and current information letters besides the tickers already listed in this report for which he did legal opinion letters to free up stock included:

Cannon Exploration Inc (CNEX)

-------------------



Of the tickers named in the SEC litigation that Guy Jean-Pierre helped to facilitate insider enrichment schemes, most have been suspended, revoked, slapped with the skull & crossbones, done large reverse splits, or now trade at no bid:


Apple Rush Co, Inc (APRU) - no bid
Artfest International Inc (ARTS) - suspended

Of those 19 different issuers, 9 of them (nearly half) were Big Apple Consulting shells:

Apple Rush Co, Inc (APRU)
Artfest International Inc (ARTS)
Cloud Centric Inc (CLDR)
Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group Inc (CTYX)
Green Bridge Industries Inc (GRBG)
IJJ Corp (IJJP)
Real Paper Displays Inc (RPPR) - now SutimCo International Inc (SUTI)
Shot Spirits Corp (SSPT)
3D Eye Solutions (TDEY)



Guy Jean-Pierre was a favorite of Big Apple Consulting before he got banned and obviously remained well used by them after he came back fraudulently using his niece's name through his new company, Complete Legal Solutions Inc. Guy Jean-Pierre was also in house counsel for Joseph Meuse/Belmont Partners. The links continue to Charm Investments Ltd (Clinton Greyling).

I think time may prove that Complete Legal Solutions Inc was not the only fake law firm created by Guy Jean-Pierre to continue to write these fraudulent legal opinion letters and that there were actually much more than just 111 letter written by Guy Jean-Pierre after he got banned by the SEC on April 21, 2010

Toxic Financiers like Mazuma/Asher Enterprises (Curt Kramer), E-Lionheart/Fairhills Capital (Edward Bronson), TJ Management Group (Yossef Kahlon), Magna Group (Jason Sasson), Cornell Capital Partners/Yorkshire/YA Global (Mark Angelo), Big Apple Consulting/Boost Marketing (Marc Jablon), NIR Group/AJW (Corey Ribotsky), IronRidge Global (Brendan O'Neil), and the other toxic debt financiers out there need attorneys like Guy Jean-Pierre to write attorney opinion letters to make their discounted stock they receive for dirty debt arrangements free trading.

It is a very lucrative business and attorney's like Guy Jean-Pierre probably make a lot of money facilitating these schemes which is why he was willing to create fake law firms to continue to be a part of it after the SEC banned him.

That is also why there are so many other attorneys willing to go against their sworn duty to help vouch for the legitimacy of these public companies and perform the unethical task of signing their names to bogus opinion letters to help dirty insiders get rich at the expense of the regular shareholders.

Exhibit A: Kimberly Graus aka Kimberly Rudge who also got busted recently for writing bogus opinion letters for toxic financiers including for some of the same tickers and toxic financiers as Guy Jean-Pierre:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/112700332/Object-35B0B9E-0

Like with Guy Jean-Pierre her troubles started with a Bar Grievance filed against her. Is SEC litigation around the corner?


--------------



The lucrative business of facilitating toxic debt financiers may also be why transfer agents are so willing to accept these bogus opinion letters without question or concern.

Is it a coincidence that Pacific Stock Transfer (Joseph Meuse) was the TA for all of these tickers that share both Fairhills Capital and Asher Enterprises?

Artfest International (ARTS)
PBS Holdings Inc (PBHG)
Aqua Liv (AQLV)
Protek Capital (PRPM)
Apple Rush (APRU)

Belmont Partners and Mazuma/Asher (Curt Kramer) once showed up in litigation together several years back

http://decisions.courts.state.ny.us/10jd/nassau/decisions/index/index_new/warshawsky/2008sept/023104-07.pdf

Big Apple and Belmont Partners used to be partners working the shell game as a team before that litigation split them up to some degree

Tip of the Ice Berg stuff

I think time will also prove that many of these toxic financiers are in cahoots with one another working for a much more powerful individual who is quarterbacking all the moves which is why we often see more than one toxic financier sharing the riches from the same ticker working together getting legal opinion letters from the same attorneys and not fighting with each other.

The solution seems simple to me. Make Attorney Opinion Letters part of public disclosure. Since the Transfer Agents just go along with these insider enrichment schemes instead of performing the duty they are licensed to provide, and the SEC is too busy to monitor attorney opinion letters, let the shareholders who are investing their hard earned money into these companies help regulate how the insiders are distributing and dumping free trading stock.
