Still some hope for victims

From the article by Attain Capital:

1) CFTC lawsuit of U.S. Bank proceeding, followed by class action lawsuit possibly 2014 or later.
2) Trustee anticipates a 2nd distribution before end of year.
3) Another distribution for futures accounts.

Email received today.....from PFG?

I just received the following email with regard to the PFG bankruptcy. I believe it is a scam but haven't had a chance to check it out yet. I've never heard of these people before and from reading it (I copied it exactly as I received it), from the content, spelling, grammar, etc., I believe it is a scam or phishing to get your information. If anyone else receives an email like this, please use caution. The email was from olivia@jftoys.com .

Here is the email:


ATTENTION:

I am contacting you in regards the bankruptcy Case: 1:12-CV-05383 filed 09-13-12 that was held in the United States Bankruptcy Court, Northern Illinois .Well, everything was legal and legit only for a list of names was out before the US Gov. was shut down. Now those who have their names of the list have been said not to be among the list that was provided before the Court would be compensated for the stress and the inconvenience.

For us to really verify that your name is among the list, we would need you to get in touch with the Financial Admin Department for proper check and confirmation, if you name happens to be in the list you will be compensated with the sum of $250,000. We wish you to make this notice very confidential, because this message those not goes to everything involved in the bankruptcy.

I think the email author still uses 56 kbit/s modem to follow PFG news.

It's a scam. The trustee posted about it here: http://omnimgt.com/CMSVol/CMSDocs/pub_46535/435831_Fraud%20email.pdf

When I first went to the Rust Omni site to file a claim, I noticed that the customer/client
names were listed with mailing addresses and was available for anyone to see. They
also listed a dollar amount which I assumed was the dollar amount each PFG client had
in their trading account. I didn't think it was very private or secure, so anyone could have
gone to that site and downloaded customer information.

It's interesting that they were able to get an email address for me. If they were able to get that
information, God only knows what other information they've managed to collect on former
PFG customers. That Rust Omni site should either be taken down or have better security/privacy
measures in place to protect former PFG clients.

Has anyone used their own counsel in this case?
Maybe requests to buy our claims etc, but they have stopped now.

Yes, the link is still there. When I received that email I went to the site
and it's the same site where I filed a claim last year. I haven't tried recently
to access the list, but at the time I filed my Proof of Claim a year ago I was somehow
able to access the entire list! I just remember being shocked at having access
to all those names, addresses and the amount of the accounts.

There were quite a few companies who had their pension funds with PFG.
I could tell they were pensions because the word "pension" was in the
title/name of the company.
