Black Background

United States Securities and Exchange Commission, v.  Jonathan Larmore, et al.,
No. CV-23-02470-PHX-DLR


  • How much of my investment will I receive?
    It is too soon to determine how much investors will receive from the Receivership Entities. The Receiver is working to protect the assets of the Receivership Entities, but there is no way to predict at this early date how much will be returned to each investor or when that will happen.
  • What authority does the Receiver have?
    The Court’s Order governs the authority of the Receiver. Federal courts have specific powers, known as “equitable” powers, to order relief to advance the purposes of the federal securities laws, preserve investor funds, and ensure that wrongdoers do not profit from their unlawful conduct. Courts may grant broad powers to receivers, including the authority to sue on behalf of the receivership and to gather, manage and liquidate receivership assets on behalf of potential creditors and harmed investors. A receiver is charged with acting in “good faith” and performing duties with “reasonable diligence.” A receiver is generally required to report to the Court periodically.
  • Is the Receiver my lawyer?
    No. The Receiver is an agent of the Court and is effectuating the Court’s orders. The Receiver will, however, be investigating potential claims or methods of recovery that can be pursued for the benefit of investors in the Receivership Entities.
  • I am an investor of one of the Receivership Entities. Can I get my money back now?
    The Court has entered an Order freezing all assets and funds of the Receivership Entities until the Court authorizes otherwise.
  • How can I stay informed of progress in this case?
    The Receiver will post new information on this website from time to time, including Key Court Documents, and Receiver Reports.
  • Can I review the Complaint and the Amended Receivership Order?
    Yes. These documents, and other filings and court orders that may be of interest can be found on the Key Court Documents page.
  • What is a Receiver?
    The Receiver is the individual who assumes responsibility for all assets of the entities in receivership in the civil enforcement action brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Receiver is responsible for determining how the business was operated and where its assets are located. The Receiver also is charged with operating the business and reporting to investors and other interested parties. Ultimately, the Receiver will determine the amounts owed to individual creditors and investors and will distribute available assets in accordance with a plan approved by the Court. A Receiver is an officer of the Court, not an employee of the SEC, and ultimately reports to the Court. In this case, Allen D. Applbaum, is the Court-appointed Receiver for the various Receivership Entities.
