attached is the responding email from those holding my fun funds.

it just have to wait till monday before i could respond.

Nakachalet -

I had to submit my Proof Of Claim 3 or 4 times before they finally got it. First, they said they could not read a zip file. Had to be PDF. Then, I think it was too big. A couple of times, I submitted via website, and they said they received it, but later told me they did not. Evetually, I re-re-re-submitted via the website and e-mailed it to them. Then, they FINALLY got it.

After submitting, I suggest you check the "Proof of Claim Docket" and make sure your info is recorded there. That takes a few days.


I find it highly ironic that I have to submit all kinds of claims, paperwork, statements, W-9 forms, photo IDs, etc for the little bit of remaining money that is mine --- when Russ Sr. was able to forge one bank stmt over and over to steal about $200 million.

thx @binary

i just filed my 4th attempt to get my own money from them.

wondering what it would be like, if you were asking something or anything from them that belongs to them and not you....?

are they just too self-indulging and too far removed from those afflicting and afflicted, or;

that i am just too impatient for my own good?.....

I use to have an account with PFG a few years ago. I truly hope everyone receives all of their money that they had with PFG.

Regards,
Jeff

PFG latest at 2012 11 14 wed 03:38 pm est

here is the latest on pfg pilots and destinations and what not....

it is taken from an incoming email just a few minutes ago, it might be old news for many already.

anyway, here it is for those who wish to know further....

Here’s something you don’t hear around our offices too frequently (or possibly ever before)… Good Job NFA ! While the NFA’s handling of the PFG fiasco belongs in textbooks on how not to do public relations in times of crisis, it looks like someone over there finally woke up and is trying to do the right thing – returning PFG customer money that was used to pay PFG’s regulatory fines.

Attain , have you heard anything through the grave vine that additional assets have been located. I read somewhere that the FBI was questioning Russels personal pilot about his destinations etc. I theorize that he started spending t he investors money and next decided that in light of his Brilliance, he could trade and make up for his thefts. I bet he is actually closer to any average trader who got lucky in the financial collapse years ago. And deep greed almost always leads to losses, and that in turn produced the next round of losses and that is where the bulk of the funds are located.....in other traders accounts. But I still have some hope that large assets will be located or a white knight will come forward.

Not a whole lot of money from these items. Hopefully we will see another 10%-20% but that is wishful tihnking.
