fraud offenses. This action is also brought, pursuantto 18 U.S.C. 981 (a)(1)(A),
against the Defendant Properties because the monetary transactions conducted to
purchase these properties were made in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1957(a). The offenses
which give rise to this action arise from an investment fraud scheme perpetrated by
Assured Capital Consultants, Jenifer Hoffman, John Boschert, Bryan Zuzga and ottiers
in which investors have been defrauded out of millions of dollars.
JURISDICTION AND VENUE
2. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction over an action commenced by
the United States by virtue of 28 U.S.C. 1345, and over an action for forfeiture by
virtue of 28 U.S.C. 1355.
3. This Court has in rem jurisdiction over the Defendant Properties pursuant
to:

giving rise to the forfeiture occurred in the Middle District of Florida; and

Middle District of Florida pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1395.

THE DEFENDANT IN REM
5. The Defendant Properties are described as:
a. 17532 Cobblestone Lane, Clermont, Florida 34711, more
particularly described as:
Lot 30, MAGNOLIA POINTE, according to the plat thereof, as
recorded in Plat Book 40, Pages 1 through 6, inclusive, of the
Public Records of Lake County, Florida; and
b. 13045 Hidden Beach Way, Clermont, Florida 34711, more
partiCUlarly described as:
Lot 72, MAGNOLIA POINTE, according to the plat thereof
recorded in Plat Book 40, Page(s) 1-6, of the Public Records
of Lake County, Florida
and are located in Lake County, Florida. The United States does not request
authority from the Court to seize the real property defendant at this time.
6. As set forth in Supplemental Rule G(3)(a) and 18 U.S.C. 985(b)(1) and
(c)(1), the United States will:
a. post notice of this action and a copy of the Complaint on the
defendant real properties;
b. serve notice of this action on the defendant real properties
owner(s), and any other person or entity who may claim an interest
in the defendant, along with a copy of this Complaint;
c. file a lis pendens in county records of the defendant real
properties' status as a defendant in this in rem action.
7. The Defendant Properties are subject to forfeiture pursuant to 18 U.S.C.
981(a)(1)(C), because they constitute proceeds traceable to a conspiracy to commit
"specified unlawful activity," as that term is defined in 18 U.S.C. 1956(c)(7). A
"specified unlawful activity," as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1956(c)(7), includes offenses
3
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 4 of 17
listed in 18 U.S.C. 1961(1). Specifically, 18 U.S.C. 1961(1) includes wire fraud
violations. Lastly, the monetary transactions made to purchase the Defendant
Properties were conducted in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1957(a) because they involved
monetary transactions conducted with more than $10,000 in criminally derived funds
and, as such, are subject to forfeiture pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 981(a)(1)(A).
FACTS
8. Specific details of the facts and circumstances supporting the forfeiture
of the defendant real properties are contained in the Affidavit of United States Secret
Service Special Agent Shelley Kolarczyk, which is attached hereto as Exhibit A and fully
incorporated herein by reference.
9. As required by Supp'l Rule G(2)(f), this complaint supports a reasonable
belief that the government will be able to meet its burden of proof at trial. Specifically,
there is probable cause to believe that the Defendant Properties were purchased with
proceeds of the wire fraud offenses detailed in SA Kolarczyk's Affidavit, and therefore,
are subject to forfeiture pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 981 (a)(1)(C). Additionally, there is
probable cause to believe that the Defendant Properties were involved in violations of
18 U.S.C. 1957(a), and therefore, are subject to forfeiture pursuant to 18 U.S.C.
981 (a)(1 )(A).
WHEREFORE, the United States requests that process, in accordance with the
provisions of Supplemental Rule G, be issued against the Defendant Properties to
enforce the forfeiture and that any person or persons having an interest therein be cited
and directed to appear and show cause why it should not be decreed; and that the
4
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 5 of 17
Defendant Properties be forfeited to the United States for disposition according to law;
and that the United States have such other and further relief as this case may require.

AFFIDAVIT
I, Shelley Kolarczyk, being duly sworn, depose and state as follows:
1. I am a Special Agent (SA) of the United States Secret Service (USSS)
and have been so employed for 8 years. I am currently assigned to the Orlando Field
Office. Among my duties as a SA, I am charged with the investigation of financial
crimes, including check fraud, identity fraud, credit card fraud, bank and wire fraud, and
the manufacturing, possession and passing of counterfeit United States currency.
I have been involved in several investigations involving Ponzi/Pyramid schemes1 that
resulted in the issuance of seizure warrants. As a SA, I have conducted numerous wire
fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes investigations. I have become
intimately familiar with the manner in which criminals communicate by wire (telephone,
internet, fax machine, etc.) in attempts to code their language to disguise the true
meaning of their conversations. Additionally, I have extensive experience in
investigating individuals who attempt to conceal proceeds of illegal acts, such as wire
fraud, including the use of trusts and corporations to disguise the true owner of illicit
funds they control through these entities. I have become knowledgeable about the
methods and means by which money is laundered and the efforts of persons involved in
1 Ponzi schemes promote allegedly lucrative business opportunities, often involving
foreign currency exchange, precious metals trading, or other high return investments.
However, in a Ponzi scheme, there is in fact no underlying profitable business to
support the payments promoters say they will make to the investors. Instead, the
promoters simply use the money obtained from a growing base of latter investors to pay
so-called "profits" to earlier investors. Schemes that depend on growing the base of
new investors to support payments to prior investors are also referred to as pyramids.
Ponzi schemes have evolved with the development of the Internet, but their basic
premise remains the same: later investors' funds are used to pay the earlier investors.
1
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 8 of 17
such activities to avoid detection by law enforcement. As a USSS agent, I have utilized
a variety of investigative techniques and resources, including physical and electronic
surveillance, undercover operations. and cooperating sources of information, including
cooperating defendants.
2. This investigation is being conducted jointly by the USSS, the FBI, the IRS
and the State of Florida, Office of Financial Regulation. Information obtained as a result
of the investigative efforts of each agency is being shared with agents from the other
agencies and incorporated into this affidavit. The facts set forth in this affidavit are
based on my own personal knowledge, knowledge obtained from law enforcement
officers. reviews of documents and computer records related to this investigation.
communications with others who have personal knowledge of the events and
circumstances described herein (including participants.) and information gained through
my training and experience and the training and experience of others. Because this
affidavit is being submitted for the limited purpose of establishing probable cause in
support of the civil forfeiture complaint described herein, it does not set forth each and
every fact that I or others have learned during the course of the investigation.
I. Property to be Seized
3. This affidavit is being submitted for the limited purpose of supporting the
civil forfeiture complaint against real properties located at:
a. 17532 Cobblestone Lane, Clermont, Florida, 34711, titled in the name
of Donald and Jenifer Hoffman; and
b. 13045 Hidden Beach Way, Clermont, Florida, 34711, titled in the
name of Bryan and Mersades Zuga.

Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 9 of 17
II. Relevant Individuals/Entity
4. The following individuals/entity are believed to be involved in this scheme:
a. John Boschert (Boschert)
b. Jenifer Hoffman (Hoffman)
c. Bryan Zuzga (Zuzga)
d. Assured Capital Consultants (ACC) - According to the Florida
Department of State, Division of Corporations, ACC was established in
September 2008. Boschert is listed as the Manager and Hoffman was listed as
the Managing Member. State filings indicate that ACC is engaged in "any and all
lawful business." ACC's principal address is listed as 13148 Summerlake Way,
Clermont, Florida.
III. Overview of Scheme
5. Since January 2009, the above-referenced individuals have been
deceiving investors by making claims to them, both via business meetings and phone
conversations, that investments in ACC would yield exceptionally high returns on
investments not achievable anywhere in the legitimate business world. Specifically,
ACC's Joint Venture Revenue Share Agreements (Agreements) indicate that although
ACC does not guarantee minimum monthly returns to investors, investors could earn
monthly returns between 100%-200% on their investments, with any earnings over
100% per month paid directly to ACC.
6. The terms of ACC's agreements indicate that investor funds would be
placed into what ACC described as a "private placement trade platform," which was
being managed by a confidential Trade Platform. Indeed, Boschert and Hoffman told
3
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 10 of 17
investors that the specific details of ACC's investments were private or confidential and
could not be shared with them.2 As is typical of most pyramid schemes, investors were
advised verbally that the higher initial investment they made with ACC, the higher
returns they would receive and the quicker they would receive their payouts. Investors
were also advised verbally that their funds would not leave the designated escrow
account. Per the terms of the agreements, at any time upon their request, investors' full
principal investment would be returned to them within 10 business days. ACC offered
investment opportunities ranging between $50,000 to $500,000 with the option for
smaller investors to pool their funds and inv~st as a group, as many individuals did.
7. As part of the investment scheme, Hoffman verbally advised investors that
Bryan Zuzga (Zuzga) was managing investors' payments by serving as the escrow
agent for funds disbursed from Assured Capital Consultant's SunTrust Bank Account
#1000085984168 (ACC"s SunTrust Account). Several investors also reported
conversations with Hoffman and ZUZGA wherein Hoffmana and Zuzga held Zuzga out
to be ACC's lawyer. Initial investigation into Zuzga's background indicates that he does
not hold a license to practice law in either Florida or Ohio, as he represented to several
investors. Zuzga also falsely repre~ented to investors via an Escrow Agreement, he
was the sole signatory on ACC's SunTrust Account.
8. An examination into ACC's SunTrust Account, the account utilized by ACC
to accept investor funds, does not indicate that any legitimate investments were actually
2 On at least one occasion, Boschert advised an investor that he could not disclose how
ACG was investing investor funds because the company ACC was investing with did not
want this information disclosed.
4
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 11 of 17
being made on behalf of ACC's investors. Bank analysis reveals that since January
2009, ACC collected over $28 million from various investors, both domestic and
international. Instead of investing funds on behalf of investors, bank records indicate
that Boschert and Hoffman were misappropriating investors' funds for their own
personal benefit. Specifically, these individuals used investors' funds to purchase
vehicles, vessels, buy homes, compensate themselves and send money to accounts
directly under their control. This investigation has revealed that neither Boschert nor
Hoffman have any substantial income other than ACC related money.
IV. ACe is Unlicensed to Operate Its Business
9. I contacted the National Futures Association (NFA) and the Commodities
Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in order to determine whether ACC holds any type
of investment licenses. A check with both the NFA and CFTC resulted in negative
results for any license or registration for ACC, Boschert or Hoffman. According to the
CFTC, ACC is considered a "pool operator" because it collectively accumulates investor
money for investments. Serving as a pool operator for the purpose of purchasing
commodities without a license or registration is in violation of federal law. Registration
with the CFTC requires companies to produce disclosure documents, yearly
prospectuses and incorporation documents. These are necessary to protect investors
from fraudulent practices by unregulated pool operators.
V. Investor Interview
10. On September 16,2009, I received a call from St. Petersburg, Florida
resident Brian Haas (Haas) who was concerned that he may have been victimized by
an investment scheme operated by ACC. In June 2009, Hass, on behalf of his wholly
5
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 12 of 17
owned company, Marketworx Corp., began investing with ACC. Haas learned about
ACC through an acquaintance and was interested in investing his money where he
could receive a high yield on investments. ACC purported in writing to Haas, and other
individuals, that investments were made in private placement platforms. As was the
case with other investors, ACC advised Haas that it was unable to disclose the specific
nature of the investments it would make on his behalf.
11. On June 11, 2009, Marketworx Corp. entered into a contract with ACC.
The terms of the contract indicate that interest, in the amount of 5-25% per week, was
to be paid every ten days once investing began. Moreover, Marketworx had to agree to
pay ACC any earnings earned in excess of 100% per month. If, however, Marketworx
wanted to withdraw its principal, it could do so at any time after it provided ACC with 10
business days notice.
12. Pursuant to the terms of the contract, on June 12,2009, Haas wired
$100,000 to ACC's SunTrust Account for the sole purpose of investing with ACC.
13. Thereafter, on or about July 14, 2009, Hass was verbally informed by
Hoffman that his investment had earned $196,000. With this information, Haas
requested a $50,000 payout from his earnings, which he received on July 22,2009 in
the form of a wire from ACC's SunTrust Account.
14. On July 31,2009, feeling confident in his investment decision, Haas
provided ACC with additional funds for investment. Haas provided SunTrust Official
Check No. 4677029837 made payable to ACC in the amount of $254,000 to add to his
original investment. Bank records reveal this check was deposited into ACC's SunTrust
Account.
6
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 13 of 17
15. In the days following his additional investment, Boschert and Hoffman
communicated regularly with Haas regarding his investment. In early August 2009,
Haas began to have problems reaching Boschert and Hoffman and became concerned
about his investment. Accordingly, on August 3,2009, Haas requested the return of his
earnings and entire principal investment. Hoffman initially agreed to return theses funds
to Haas, but then continued to delay and make broken promises to Haas regarding the
return of his funds. On September 26,2009, after several weeks of attempting to obtain
his funds from Hoffman, Haas called the Orlando Secret Service to file a complaint.
16. Additional victims have been identified and have provided similar accounts
of their dealings with ACC to the Orlando Secret Service.
VI. Tracing of Funds Used to Purchase the Defendant Real Properties
17. According to bank records, on September 8,2008, Jenifer Hoffman and
John Boschert opened SunTrust Business Checking Account #1000085984168 held in
the name of Assured Capital Consultants, LLC, at the Clermont branch located at 581
E. Highway 50, Clermont, Florida, 34711. Bank records list Hoffman and Boschert as
the only signatories on the account in their capacity as Managers of ACC's Escrow
Account. As discussed above, ACC directed investors to send their investment funds to
this account.
18. Between January and September 2009, over $28 million was wired or
directly deposited into this account. Based on a review of incoming wires, and
numerous victim interviews conducted by investigators, with the exception of a small
7
Case 5:10-cv-00468-WTH-GRJ Document 1 Filed 09/14/10 Page 14 of 17
portion of funds,3 it is apparent this account was funded almost entirely with funds
received directly from ACC investors. Bank analysis indicates that of the funds
deposited into this account, $19,761,376.25 was returned to investors, $1,906,525 was
wired to ACC's Secondary Account, $1,093,890 was wired to DAH Management,4
$832,250 was wired to or withdrawn by Boschert and/or Hoffman, $382,000 was wired
to Zuzga, $350,000 was wired to Paul Forkner,5 and $150,000 was wired to Banco
General in Panama and there were $446,300 in counter and cash withdrawals.
19. While it appears that the funds in this account were being used to pay
back investor returns (as it typical in most Ponzi/Pyramid schemes), compensate
Boschert, Hoffman and their family members, sent to overseas accounts and used to
purchase assets for the Hoffmans, there is little to no account activity that demonstrates
that the funds were actually being invested as advertised to investors. Indeed, none of
the account's outgoing wires can be directly traced to any legitimate investment.
20. Additionally, investor funds deposited into ACC's SunTrust Account were
used to purchase the Defendant Properties.
3 A portion of funds, $1,412,690, came from ACC SunTrust Account #1000085983079
(ACC's Secondary Account) and two cash deposits totaling $11,500. With the
exception of a few transactions, the vast majority of the funds deposited into ACC's
Secondary Account came from ACC's SunTrust Account. Both of ACC's SunTrust
accounts were closed on or about September 21,2009 for "non-compliance" with
SunTrust Bank's rules and regulations and after the bank received several customer
complaints.
4 DAH Management is an active Florida corporation listing Jenifer Hoffman as the sole
Officer/Director.
5 Paul Forkner is Jenifer Hoffman's father.

A. Purchase of The Hoffmans' Property
21. Records obtained from the Lake County Property Appraiser's Office reveal
that on July 3,2009, Donald and Jenifer Hoffman purchased their residence located at
17532 Cobblestone Lane, Clermont, Florida, 34711 for $1 ,575,000 (Hoffmans'
residence). Attorney Wade Boyette served as the title agent for the closing. The
following is a summary of the funding of the Hoffmans' residence:
a. On June 19,2009, the ACC SunTrust Account received an
incoming wire of $1,850,000 from United Funding.6 The same day
$230,000 was wired from the ACC SunTrust Account to the
BankFirst account of the Boyette Law Offices in Clermont, Florida.
b. On June 29, 2009, the ACC SunTrust Account received an
incoming wire of $500,000 from Harbour Distribution? The same
day $500,000 was wired from the ACC SunTrust Account to the
BankFirst account of the Boyette Law Offices in Clermont, Florida.
c. On June 30, 2009, the ACC SunTrust Account received an
incoming wire of $300,000 from Aishwariya Enterprises.8 The
same day $303,963.96 was wired from the ACC SunTrust Account
to the BankFirst account of the Boyette Law Offices in Clermont,
Florida.
d. On July 2, 2009, the ACC SunTrust Account received an incoming

The plot thickens...

AUTHOR: LoatheAssured - (USA)

And "As the world turns"... These are "the days of our lives"...


Hold onto your hats everyone... We have another twist to the infamous Jenifer Hoffman saga...





All who have been affected by this horrendous creature and her cult of trolls must go to the website below and educate yourselves on what "Ms. Mastermind" (AKA Jenifer Elizabeth Forkner Hoffman) has involved herself in...



fraudsandscams.com/IFT/IFT.htm



Oh dear.. Anyone who thinks she will be paying you back seriously should think about becoming admitted... If poor Jenifer cannot even pay her water and sewer responsibilities to the City of Clermont, how on earth will she be able repay those who she defrauded?



Hope you all enjoy the new findings...  And as for you, Jenifer, I hope that you soon come to the realization that you will no longer be able to hide behind the lies... Rather than contemplating new lies, you should be making necessary arrangements for the care of your children... Because you, your husband, and associated relatives (your daddy) will be enjoying your "concrete extended stay suite" for a much deserved time. May Bernie Madoff have mercy on your soul...

Elite Marketing Rick Brignole, Jamey Kolka and Luis Cruz Are Scammers too

AUTHOR: JohnBoschertJeniferHoffmanScam - (USA)

These people are most definitely part of the larger scam.

The are tied to Assured and took in hundreds of thousands of $.

They received large amounts of "so called" returns and never paid out but continued to take in funds.

These people should be in the cell right next to John.  Or infact in the same cell as John since they have profited from running the same scam.

Luis Cruz, Rick Brignole and Jamey Kolka need to go to jail too.

The noose tightens...heard it through the grapevine

AUTHOR: JUSTICE COMES SWIFT - (USA)

Jenifer is AMAZING.

Rumor has it that she just got ordered with a civil forfeiture and yet she continues to tell people she has the ability to pay them and she has a plan in place but yet like the rest of the fables people have been hearing since last year, guess what? NO PAYMENT!

I heard they were doing a remake of ANNIE on Broadway. Jenifer should get the lead in that play. With regard to payment she has been singing, "Tomorrow, tomorrow" for over a year so she would be perfect for the part.

Bryan Zuzga? Rumor has it that 1410 won their lawsuit against him last week!

John Boschert? I guess even if you crawl back to Mommy's house in Georgia they can still find you and serve you.

The wheels of justice grind slow and true, but when justice comes, justice comes swift!

#9 General Comment

Captial Company & Paymaster mentioned (another Broker)

AUTHOR: captcaveman - (United States of America)

The amazing part about all of this is the fact that you have chosen to use a paymaster outside of the banks paymaster.  Our company knows of this "attorney" that is being mentioned and he was never able to deliver for us, in fact one of "his" contacts said that they would take our clients into a TP that he highly recommended to us and this source is now being sued for ripping people off.  We know this to be fact not fiction.  We also used this "attorney" you are mentioning for another TP and we had two clients both lose six figures.  The money vanished, gone, no one knows where it is or what happened but what we do know is the money is gone and we keep getting excuses over and over again.

By using an attorney for paymaster all you are doing is basically getting ripped-off.  The bank is the ultimate paymaster not an attorney (broker collecting an extra fee).  This Capital Company is nothing more than brokers by the sound of it.  They are acting as the intermediary between their "contact" and who knows how many other "contacts" and the client.  If they are quoting returns and they are not fully licensed to do so they are in clear violation of S.E.C. regulations.  Unless one or more has their Series 7 licenses than I would steer clear of them altogether especially quoting returns with or without a contract.  It is completely up to you but the crap always rolls down hill and IF the Feds come a knocking because you have quoted returns because this Capital Company has quoted returns and they are not licensed and you are not licensed then all I can say is enjoy the prison bars.

I sure hope not

I sure hope not that we were scammed

To many good people invested there hard earned money based on what John and Jen told them.   I truly believe that Jen is doing what she can but the bottom line is that nothing has been paid out.  Every day the picture becomes clearer regarding John

This is perfect example of why these types of trades/investments get a bad name.  Greed always enter into the picture.  You have to wonder how can people look themselves into the mirror and sleep at night realizing that they have screwed over people

Regardless of how long it takes,  they will have to deal with the long arm of the law.

The person that mentioned that Jen is rectifying this is correct. Believe me we're all tired of the next Monday/Friday/Week etc, but it's getting done. People are getting paid and it's coming to a close. You may not know the people but if you haven't been paid your time is coming. Jen is doing the right thing by everyone and getting us all out of this mess that her partner Johnny Little Nuts got us all into.  C'mon John you used to be a big man telling everyone how it was gonna go down and now nothing?  You're a nutless theif and you will go away to the big house soon enough.  Keep hiding dude-that's a good way to live! Even though we're  paid out from Jen, know that a group of us will still work with the authorities to ensure you can't spend a dime of what you stole-you know what fraudulent things you did-can't wait for the depo.

People like John always amaze me-they have a good thing going but just can't maintain it because they have no clue how to manage it. Just because you can shift gears on your moped doesn't mean you can manage this kind of money-obviously. Why don't you post something on here and let us know what you think about all this and why you didn't help get our money back??

Law Enforcement Updates

AUTHOR: California Dreaming - (USA)

I personally contacted the Lake County Sheriff Office which indicated there is a current Secret Service investigation into the goings on at Assured Capital.

I personally contacted the FL State Attorney General...due to the holidays I expect to speak with them the first week of December to request they open a criminal investigation.

My associate has filed a formal complaint with the FBI and put them in touch with the Secret Service.  The agent in charge indicated they had received NO complaints regarding this company...I say this because I recall reading on this forum someone's post regarding Assured Capital being reported.

So - beginning in December there are 2 ongoing Federal investigations and, hopefully, one State investigation into the crimes perpetrated by Assured Capital and their cronies including, but not limited to -

John C Boschert
Jenifer E. Forkner-Hoffman
Donald Hoffman, Jr.
Scott Forkner
Mark Dellinger
Bryan T. Zuzga
and 1 or 2 others I cannot recall off the top of my head.

There is also 1 lawsuit of which I am aware in the FL Middle Federal District Court (you can find particulars on the Internets)

I am pretty sure the Feds will have a field day with Boschert as soon as he gets his other law issues sorted out.

As to Jenifer - I hope you can find long term child care.

Criminal charges

AUTHOR: Rippedoff and fed up - (United States of America)

   Midwest Money... all information is stripped by the website so email and phone numbers don't show up when placed on here. It's to keep people from getting together without going through Ripoff Report's attorneys to do it. Kind of shows you how they get a little of their money!

   What I'm about to say is based upon you being a real client and not one of these idiotic broker's who seem to be in the back pocket of Assured Capital Consultants and Waterstone Funding. If you had the funds to go into the program then you have your own attorney and should heed their advice over all others. If you don't have an attorney yet, GET ONE! Have them file the criminal charges immediately as this is your best way to get your funds back as quickly as possible. Don't worry about what everyone else is doing, worry firstly about yourself and work with your attorney to get your funds back and secondly about stopping them from doing this to others by helping to put them in Jail where they belong and where John needs to return to.

   Anyway, are you sure the funds went into Suntrust in Atlanta? Suntrust's main corporate offices are located there sure, but the escrow account should have been opened and maintained in Florida by Jenifer Hoffman and Bryan Zuzga, not in Atlanta. I'm just trying to save you from filing in the wrong states and have it thrown out on technicalities. You should also know that Bryan Zuzga is not an attorney and is not licensed by the State Bar of Florida. Just another log for the fire for Escrow Fraud. Definitely check as you may have wired them to another account than ones some of us sent to. Anything in Georgia will have John's name all over it while Florida is usual Jenifer's name. It doesn't matter as they have stolen the funds as a company and therefore are all held responsible for the Fraud.

   Best thing you can do is have an attorney file criminal charges against all the owners/members of Assured Capital and Waterstone for Fraud and Fraud of Escrow. That would be: Jenifer Hoffman, John Boschert, Don Hoffman, Scott Forkner and Randy Blakeslee. Then contact the Florida Bar office and file a complaint against Bryan Zuzga for practicing without a license. After that contact the Attorney General's offices in Florida (for most of Assured Capital), Georgia (since John with Assured is listed as living in that state) and Illinois (for Waterstone). They will give you the numbers for the appropriate offices to contact. Contact them and move forward immediately.
 
   Again don't bother with class action lawsuits or trying to save money by joining with others as it'll only go into a class action. Those are bulky, cumbersome and overly time consuming. So don't try to "lump up" with other groups but initiate things on your own as I did which ends up being more beneficial. Your Attorney should tell you this but that is your best route to go. Don't waste your time with what the rest of us are doing, file and move forward on your own!

Update? ha!

AUTHOR: Rippedoff and fed up - (United States of America)

Well supposedly the money is still amazingly "tied up" and awaiting release so it can be sent to United Title in Saint Charles Illinois. There have been stories of the money in Florida, the money in HSBC New York, money offshore in the Bahamas... but honestly this was OUR, let me repeat that... *OUR* escrow money and should have been readily available for return. That it hasn't has a legal term: Escrow Fraud. But they say they are returning our funds...

So why haven't they? And why are the rest of you sitting on your asses and not doing something? You really just don't want your money back do you? OHHHH you must be listening to idiotic brokers who aren't worried about your money as they are 'their' huge commissions for simply turning your file over to another group who gave it to yet another group and then Assured Capital/MAH management gave it to the real broker dealing with the trade group. Yup they earned those commissions! And I'm sure they'll telling you it'll happen, to just wait as Mrs Hoffman is trying SOOOO HARD to get this done for you! They don't get paid if just the escrow is returned. They also don't get paid if the authorities are the ones who return the funds and not their precious "Jen". So why are you still listening to the people who put you into this boat to begin with? You realize they know its fraud and a ponzi scheme... by telling you to continue to wait they are just implicating themselves as part of this. Why not end it, and go after all involved and let the courts settle this?

Sadly if you haven't woken up by now and realized the money isn't there, it's not coming, that they delayed until the holidays and you won't be seeing it... well then you deserve to lose your money. I know I won't, I've already filed and spoken to the authorities after hearing another client, a Ms Bell did the same thing. She's been the "boogie man" and the reason we've been told the funds are held up. I highly doubt that though after speaking with her attorney. It was the push I needed to file myself and drop the brokers I had involved.

Talk to the authorities in Florida as we did. Had you actually done so last month when it was offered you would have learned by now that they have in fact classified this as a PONZI Scheme and are in process of dealing with the players involved: Randy Blakeslee, Jenifer Hoffman, Scott Forkner, John Boschert, Don Hoffman. (Jen recently changed DAH Management to try and protect her Husband Don but unfortunately for her, it was already filed and he is listed as part of the scheme).

As for the requests about Patricia "Diane" Gruber and Trevor Stebbins.... Patricia worked for Randy in this. Trevor was in Randy's position until Randy underhandedly moved Trevor's clients to him and then placed Trevor under him as an employee.
So why would you go after employees that are small fish and mean nothing? Go after the owners of the companies and the ones who took the money! Don't bother wasting time on the other two as it just wastes resources. If you're going to waste them, then go after the broker's who have done nothing but continue to waste your time.

The only ones left to blame now are the clients who have done nothing. Assured has gotten away with getting to the holidays after stealing our money. I filed with the state and now have criminal charges filed against them in my own state, we're just waiting for it to be moved to a foreign judgement in Florida, Georgia and Illinois so the arrest warrants can be issued and served.

GAME OVER...

AUTHOR: HE WHO KNOWS - (USA)

Jen I believe had been trying to settle this but I believe the problem is not her but may be the people she was dealing with. Unfortunately like Harry Truman said, "The buck stops here." She is responsible and will now have to deal with the fall out.

The excuses of things John did (even though he is a demon), the title companies (last count they were up to three of them) and the banks (they were up to 3 of those too) and the wires that had to hit (Too many to count) and then the funds to clear (Again too many to count) has run it course...

Game over folks...the sh*t has started to hit the fan...sad to say it's about to get ugly

why the lies jen

AUTHOR: reallypissed - (United States of America)

I just found out that it appears that Jen is not even the country. She hasn't been in a few weeks.  She is oversea's and of course John is no where to be found.  

We have all heard the reason's why we haven't received our escrow's back.  It appears that we have lied to and all they were doing is buying time

The only solution is to start legal action and any necessary law enforement involement.    You have all the necessary paperwork and information as to whom to serve and where it should be sent.

I highly doubt that anyone has been repaid there escrow amount since it's been a long time since anyone has posted that they did receive there orginal investment back. Jenifer Hoffman, John Boschert, Trevor Stebbings, Bryan Zuzga seem to be the major players in this so I would strongly suggest that you include them all in any legal action.  If you can find out who Patricia "Diane" Gruber and Randall  Scott Blakesllee II are and have contact information on them please post it asap 

They have all chosen to let this situation get to this point.  The gloves are coming off.  If I were them I would start sending back the escrow money asap and then start sending out the proceeds  Either that or I hope that like the inside of prison cell and enjoy picking up trash on the side of road on the weekend as part of there work release

Nothing worse than a nutless redneck thief! You can hide and you can hide the money you stole but it won't stop the criminal charges... you've done some bad things Johnny and everday that goes by people are finding more and more. I always get a kick out of people, like you who think they hold a lot of power until it's go time and then they disappear as if no one will notice.  I hope you try not paying us back every dime you owe, as we'll have the last laugh as you're haulded off to your new home at casa grande! Do you prefer orange or plad?  I'd ride your moped to the nearest bar like you do everyday, get drunk and beat your girlfriend and enjoy that freedom, because soon you're gonna be the moped and some other dumb redneck who thought he could steal from people is gonna be ridin you.................

AUTHOR: Disappointed - (USA)

I have a solution to the problem John and Jen for stealing our principle.  In light of the recent wave of Ponzi schemes, don't you think you would just pay the money back and make this go away? You are going to go to jail either through us or the feds.  I promise you that this is no threat and it's going to happen as multiple people and companies are filing.  You think a jury is going to feel sorry for you guys? Once this happens the feds are going to get involved so you won't be able to stop the bus at that point.  Get the money back TODAY and move on-Do you not have the money? 


Also John and Jen like to play off each other and make everyone believe they're not in cahoots with each other but we all know they talk and are conspiring together.  You two have got to be two of the dumbest people I know. Again why go through this?  We are going to own everything you own after this and the suits will keep coming.  Run Johnny run!! It's the witching hour.  Enjoy your day today...

what's going on

AUTHOR: reallypissed - (United States of America)

 Does anyone know what is going on.   We had heard that the funds were going to start being released late last week after the errors and ommission's issue was addressed.  Still nothing...no money and no current information.

It's a shame that there is no communication coming from Assured Capital.  Everyone invested in good faith and although we all believe that Jen is doing her best to resolve this issue, no one ever expected it to get to this point.

There are a lot of people who are being hurt financially by the way that this has been handled.  When promises and deadlines aren't met then you really have to wonder what is the real story.

I hope there is someone who knows what really is going on.  If anyone has received there escrow or profits within the last week it sure would be reassuring to know that the process is moving forward.

Hang in there----these next few days will yield some results.  I'll make a prediction that you'll either have your money back or everything will be locked up as legal action begins.  I had enough and these people have violated many laws. Once legal action starts the trade will drop her, there's already black marks on her banking record, soon to be followed by the trade people. They can't hide their money off shore as we will still have access to those funds. I hope they think it was all worth it when they're left with nothing. John ---I'd like to see your face when this bluff is called-------idiot! Can't wait...Even after my principle is back I'm coming for the profit!!

Big Bad John Boschert. It is my understanding that Jen is taking all the heat. Where is Big Bad John? This guy disappeared like sugar in hot water.

This whole situation is a mess and he is nowhere to be found. If Jen is truly trying to clean this up I am almost certain he is not helping. Why should he? He was Mr. Wonderful when he wanted everyone to join, and now? Everyone can all go to hell.

I can see that by the posts and from what I hear, good, bad or indifferent Jen is at least in touch. Has anyone physically heard from John offering anything positive?

How sad to hide behind a woman with a young child. It's low. It's pathetic. Step up, Man up and take the heat!

Right now John, she has more testicular fortitude than you.

WHERE'S THE MONEY???

AUTHOR: HE WHO KNOWS - (USA)

Its been frozen at SUNTRUST

Its not clear at WACHOVIA

Its at the TITLE company

Its at another TITLE COMPANY

Its was wired but it is bounced up, bounced back, bounced down and bounced all around...

Its offshore, its onshore, its a bad movie with Pauly Shore...

Its in the end zone of the MEADOWLANDS with Jimmy Hoffa...

The GREAT PUMPKIN is bringing it...

WAIT!! Its clear but wont be released until SHREK, I mean John Boschert, gets a release signed and then they will send ONLY escrow but in the furture you will get proceeds. In other words you just have to trust them for the rest. Which if you have been consuming the gross yearly cocaine production of Columbia you will have no problem agreeing to.

And every day there is another story, everday begins with "Once upon a time"...

Unfortunately no one who invested money is living, "Happily ever After."

Jen can keep in contact and telling everyone everything is going to be all right

But in the end all that is there is an empty envelope. How sad that the clock is ticking away to sad ending. I know most if not all of you have been contacted by the authorities. And the candle is burning the thin string holding up the axe of justice. But it is about to drop.

I know if I was Shrek and Jen and I had the money I would just pay everyone and move on. Why would you not? Unless there is no money....

The weakest excuses yet. From All parties.

AUTHOR: DisHonestJohn - (USA)

Here is the list of the latest excuses from the group we put our money in with that company submitted our funds with Assured.  All of the companies will be exposed soon if we do not get substantial and substantiated updates.
They are all looking like Crooks even the group we submitted to..They come up with the weakest excuses and we have no idea what the real story is.. 
They will all be exposed very very soon.. Do you here that "E" Company?

Every individual.  
Nobody cares to send out any updates or return calls or anything of the sort they just go AWOL.

October 23, 2009
During the earlier part of this week, several wires were sent out to clients.  The title agent started out with the smaller wires and they reached the quota covered by E and O (Errors and Omissions) insurance.  Jen worked with the title company to bond them for a higher amount which will cover "E's"(The group we have out contract with) wire.  This occured today.  We expect to have principle paid by Monday.  In addition, proceeds are being covered by a seperate title company and will not be effected by this issue.  We now have two seperate amounts coming from two different entities.  Whichever comes in first we will immediately send out to all of our clients.


October 21, 2009
To all,

Jen updated us with these words on Monday:

" Funds were released on Friday and sent to title company.  SHe will be collecting W-9 (got from Mr. R last week) and the attached release and then start distributing!
 
She hopes to have wrapped up by Wed/Thurs for all escrow and proceeds"

This was reconfirmed today when I spoke with her. I know that the title agent has already begun sending out smaller wires and working her way up to the bigger clients. If anything is running behind schedule I will let you all know as soon as I get word, but bear in mind all monies are safe at the title company and set for distribution. 

More to follow if we do not get proper updates..

I am ruined from this shit and no company Assured or the group we have our contract with will send out an exceptable reason as to why.  

Previous excuses are ones such as..
Jen put and Extra 0 (Zero) when wiring out so there was a delay.
Funds were blocked by the IRS.
Accounts were Closed by Suntrust.
Jen will be picking up cashiers checks, then they are going to be mailed.  (Mailed?  Really your going to have a multi million $ check Mailed?)  All Bullshit..

I don't trust Assured or the group we put our money in with.


GIVE US SOME ANSWERS.. LET ME KNOW THE TITLE COMPANY.  
SHAME ON ALL OF YOU....

Update

AUTHOR: Disappointed - (USA)

I've alerted the trade bank and according to them they had already been involved once.  They are supossed to get back to me today.  For some reason the retard is back in the picture and the bank stated he was to stay clear of this trade.  I'm sure he's scheming a way not to pay anyone and keep the money for himself. You know what's sad is they just can't do what's right and payout. If I don't get all my principle and what is owed in profit I will sue them and report them to the secret service, which has also been involved before on this trade. Don't think you're above the law -you had/have our money and you've made money while you've had it, so believe what you want but I can assure you assured that your trade will shut down. Also if you're using our money to get into another trade you will go to jail as we have a right to those funds as well. Just give the money back you liars!! Also John although people are sick of your big mouth and stupid letters and no one gives 2 cents about anything you have to say or what you think, please continue to send things out so we can use them against you in court------dah--go have a drink and get use to the inside of a cell again!

still waiting

AUTHOR: esquire 100 - (USA)

I also have a substantial amount of money invested with Jen Hoffman and Assured. I also got in when they were operating very smoothly. I like everybody else here am very upset that my original principal + a few weeks of profit payments have not been paid to me. However I did make a tremdous profit off of my original investment. Not withstanding the mess that has unfolded in the past few weeks I can tell you this. Assured is not a ponzi scheme as some of you may subjest. This is not my first time participating in a private placment platform and I have lost money and have also made a lot of money in varies platforms. These trades do happen all the time via many diffrent state side and internal groups, huge profits are being made, and assured did have a very real PPP. I think that Jen Hoffman and others poorly managed the profit accounts and took in too many small investors. I believe this is what lead to Sun Trust freezing and closing thier accts and to the trading platform cancelling thier trading contract. It is my understanding and please if anybody has heard diffrent please share with us that Jen Hoffman did on either Thursday or Friday of last week receive a cashiers check from Sun Trust. I have been told she is taking it to a title company that has the ability to send out many wires at one time and that at this point we are waiting for the cashiers check to clear which can take 3 to 5 business days.

Has this been told to anybody else?

Update...

AUTHOR: Prism - (USA)

In regards to the issue I stated with Kaplan as the Escrow Attorney listed above... to refresh...

   Further, review your contracts. It's my understanding, your issue is with the escrow attorney not Assured Capital. That attorney was David Kaplan, who was immediately dropped the moment it was brought to Assured's attention of the wrong-doing and fraud he was committing in their name. I'm sure at the bottom of the emails you'll probably see where it has his name, not Assured Capitals. I will even go as far as to say, the email itself was probably sent from him with the "embedded body" of the email from Assured Capital.

He was the paymaster, yes. As for having funds wired to an account with him as the signatory on it to act as the escrow agent, I am waiting on the wire confirmation to come from the client to show without a shadow of a doubt if this is the case or not. If they can't provide it then there is no substantial proof; if they can then that's another story.

As for the statement earlier about the other escrow agent, contact the Florida Bar and find out yourself. You'll learn simply what I did about this person and the truth of them acting as an escrow agent. Request a complaint form if you like, it will be mailed to you to fill out and return to the appropriate office in Clermont.

And finally as to the payouts from the program shutting down... all we've been told to my client is that it won't happen until they are out of contract regardless of any wrong doing that is not being admitted to. We'll see if it happens and we've been informed this is the principal amount AND the proceeds coming. If it doesn't happen, speak to legal counsel and get a clear idea of what rights you have and what you can do about it without speculating. In other words, instead of sitting here complaining, do something about it or stop.

Escrow Finally Paid

AUTHOR: Brian - (USA)

Nope, I'm a real person who was invested in Assured's program. Just trying to keep everyone up to date on this. I would expect you to be skeptical, though, considering the obviously bogus evangelical posts earlier.

I know the SunTrust account was closed, I didn't believe them either and I verified it with the branch manager listed on the letter. That part of the story is true. Like I said, the funds were transferred from some title company. According to Jen, everyone should have received them on the same day. The other folks I know who have received their principal got it weeks before I did.

According to Jen, per my conversations with her last week, people would "start" being paid proceeds, or profits if you prefer, this week. If you'd like to contact me directly to verify, my email is(((Redacted))).

#59 Consumer Suggestion

Solution to Rip Off.

AUTHOR: Ndom - (USA)

They are now saying that Jenifer is closing the trade and returning the money she has been using, because she has ten days to return the money according to the contract. Supposedly everyone is to be paid in ten days, but that is what they have been saying for awhile now.

What happened to the money of the past four to six weeks that was not returned and nothing was paid out.

My solution to the problem is that we should quit using initals if we have a legitmate complaint and discuss each situation among each other and I have a friend with the authorities that is ready, willing and able to follow up on this now.

It seems the traders are beginning to get fustrated with these types of transactions as they are giving the legitimate traders a bad name.

We are large enough so that these people's name should be put out there to traders and clients and the clients that have dealt with these people should be brought forward and if they feel that their privacy would be exposed they would lean harder on these people and see that everyone is properly compensated.

Again lets all communicate and make this happen.

It sounded like this company was on its way to turning the corner with him out of the picture, but. My attorney has done enough research to determine Ive been damaged by this and if I dont get my money back Monday (Tuesday I don't want it back) Im starting the legal process, both criminally as well as civil theft-I will be in touch with those of you that I know that are in a similar situation.

I believe those that have not been paid have been patient enough and it's time to begin legal action along with notifying law enforcement.

Get Your Facts straight

AUTHOR: PONZI SCHEME - Assured Capital - (USA)


You need to get your facts straight, My issue is NOT with the escrow attorney David Kaplan or a broker named Tonya. I don't know who these people are.


My Issue as I stated before is with Assured Capital Consultants LLC. John Boschert  and Jenifer Hoffman.


You ask me to show documents, I don't know who you are??? Are you a Broker? Investor? I don't think so, why would an investor or a broker want to see my documents? That would only lead me to believe that I'm corresponding with ether John or Jenifer. which only proves my case. One minute your speaking as Assured and then in the same post as an investor. Speaking out of both sides of your mouth. Nothing has changed (First were getting our money Then we're not)


 I have so many questions about where my money went after I made my deposit.  Like I said before, 4 months of using my money with 0 return. (Not bad) if your Assured Capital Consultants LLC.


Why don't you sell your Fancy Estate Houses, that was paid for in cash and pay back everybody what is owed to them. Principal and Interest.


Do the people at Assured have a conscience? or even a soul? Or did you sell it to the Devil for all the money your reaping. ( It sure looks like it) Enjoy it now...


I know my investment may not be alot to you, But it's alot to me, I will probably loose my house, So enjoy yours,


Tell me what I should say the next time my Wife and kids ask how my investment is going?

Is it better to say I got scammed? Or that in this world there are many evil people?

 

I'm glad I was able to help you purchase your lake front Estate.

You need to get your facts straight, My issue is NOT with the escrow attorney David Kaplan or a broker named Tonya. I don't know who these people are.


My Issue as I stated before is with Assured Capital Consultants LLC. John Boschert  and John Boschert.


You ask me to show documents, I don't know who you are??? Are you a Broker? Investor? I don't think so, why would an investor or a broker want to see my documents? That would only lead me to believe that I'm corresponding with ether John or Jenifer. which only proves my case. One minute your speaking as Assured and then in the same post as an investor. Speaking out of both sides of your mouth. Nothing has changed (First were getting our money Then we're not)


 I have so many questions about where my money went after I made my deposit.  Like I said before, 4 months of using my money with 0 return. (Not bad) if your Assured Capital Consultants LLC.


Why don't you sell your Fancy Estate Houses, that was paid for in cash and pay back everybody what is owed to them. Principal and Interest.


Do the people at Assured have a conscience? or even a soul? Or did you sell it to the Devil for all the money your reaping. ( It sure looks like it) Enjoy it now...


I know my investment may not be alot to you, But it's alot to me, I will probably loose my house, So enjoy yours,


Tell me what I should say the next time my Wife and kids ask how my investment is going? Is it better to say I got scammed? Or that in this world there are many evil people?

 

I'm glad I was able to help you purchase your lake front Estate.  

Thank You

Mud Slinging

AUTHOR: Bruce - (USA)

    I wanted to respond to some of the mud being slung on this blog.

1. I know that Assured has performed on this private investment opportunity. It is   unfortunate that this investment is closed.
2. I know of several buisiness associates that contracted David Kaplan of Global  Paymasters to serve as their paymaster for above mentioned investment opportunity.  It is my understanding that Mr. Kaplan has performed per his contract obligation.

   I aso know Mr. Kaplan never acts as ESCROW agent on any transactions, only as a paymaster.

   We have done very extensive due diligence on David Kaplan of Global Paymasters. We will be using his service in the near future as our paymaster.

Assured Capital Escrow Agreements

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

This is a specific rebuttal to the inaccurate reporting of the following:

"It's my understanding, your issue is with the escrow attorney
not Assured Capital. That attorney was David Kaplan, who was immediately dropped the moment it was brought to Assured's attention of the wrong-doing and fraud he was committing in their name. I'm sure at the bottom of the emails you'll probably see where it has his name, not Assured Capitals. I will even go as far as to say, the email itself was probably sent from him with the "embedded body" of the email from Assured Capital."

I know David Kaplan personally. He has never served in any capacity with Assured Capital, and has certainly NEVER executed any escrow agreements affiliated with the lawful Assured Capital financial transactions. There have never been ANY allegations against Mr. Kaplan for any fraudulent activity. ALL escrow agreements associated with the Assured Capital transactions were either signed by Jenifer Hoffman of Assured Capital, or the lawyer, Bryan Zuzga, to which several earlier posting refer.

The person who posted the above allegation should post even ONE escrow agreement signed by Mr. Kaplan or immediately retract the accusations.

Mr. Kaplan, as the supervising attorney for a very well known and highly respected paymaster firm - Global Paymasters, has served as an attorney retained to DISTRIBUTE PROFITS to a handful of clients who have been paid by a joint venture partner under contract with Assured Capital.

I would encourage ANY of those clients who have relied on Mr. Kaplan's professionalism as a paymaster in this transaction to also join me in clearing his name in this public forum
.

I have completed full due diligence on Mr. Kaplan and encourage others who may wish to confirm his professional status as a licensed California attorney in good standing by referring to the following California Bar website, and using his bar number: 154254.

Hmmm...

AUTHOR: Prism - (USA)

Just a couple of things to point out here... First you're already in violation of Terms of Service to Ripoffreport.com for posting full addresses of people you've attacked. But that's another issue for you to deal with and has no bearing except for Libel suits from those said people... good luck with that by the way. Putting such dribble on an open public forum... pretty much open and closed case for them to win their suits.

That said... you're facts seem to be wildly off base. As such, please provide, in their entirety here for us all to view, the email body of the emails you've gotten showing that funds would be returned and when. Not simply stating that you've been told you'd get them back. Also *WHO* told you. If it came from a broker named Tonya... well there you go, look at the source.

Further, review your contracts. It's my understanding, your issue is with the escrow attorney not Assured Capital. That attorney was David Kaplan, who was immediately dropped the moment it was brought to Assured's attention of the wrong-doing and fraud he was committing in their name. I'm sure at the bottom of the emails you'll probably see where it has his name, not Assured Capitals. I will even go as far as to say, the email itself was probably sent from him with the "embedded body" of the email from Assured Capital.

They're doing what they can to get the funds and have them sent back, but keep in mind, the ESCROW attorney held them, NOT Assured Capital. So before you start throwing out wild claims, at least get all of the facts straight. The fact they are working hard to get those escrow funds back shows their commitment to their program and to their clients.

Now for me, I've received my payouts from Assured and love working with them. I'd recommend them repeatedly (and have done so) to others who actually have the funds to send and are not simply pooling several people together with false claims.

So for now I'll just wait for you to pony up the proof of what you state.

Assured Capital

AUTHOR: Anthony - (Canada)


 I just wanted to take the time to let everyone know that I am fully satisfied with the product and service from Assured Capital. I have personally had phone conversations with Jenifer Hoffman, Trevor Stebbins, Randy Blakeslee, and Diane Gruber. I have been paid and pleased with the returns promised to us. Mr. Trevor Stebbins IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for any wires to investors. All of the payouts have been from Assured Capital NOT Trevor. This program is inside SEC guidlines, please everyone get the facts right.

UP-DATE

AUTHOR: PONZI SCHEME - Assured Capital - (USA)


                                         Assured Capital Consultants LLC.



I have been waiting for almost four months for any kind of return all we have received are empty promises and changes.
 
We went into this trade with a contract stating that we would be paid-out every 10 business days.  When our pay-out date came due Assured Capital decided to change it from a 10 day pay-out to a monthly pay-out followed by endless pay-out dates that never paid, just new target dates that never happened.  Here we are 4 months later and No interest payment  No principal and No rollover.  
And now Assured Capital says they will return my initial investment WOW! 4 months of using my money for FREE sounds like a good deal to me.   Not holding my breath Assured Capital said all money will be returned last Friday. This is what has been returned $0

And people say this is not a scam a Ponzi Scheme.

Assured Capital

AUTHOR: nopressure - (USA)

I brought a couple clients into this platform and they have gotten their principle back. to put this into perspective, Jen Hoffman has been nothing short of professional through all of this.  she answers emails, phone calls, and is working really hard to make this right.  unlike that other idiot named John Boschert who acted like a total jackass and thug through this whole experience.  has anyone gotten a phone call back from him recently?  he use to  deal out phone calls left and right threatening everyone. where is he now?

Assured Capital

AUTHOR: Booja - (USA)

I have received a return before.  I did received my escrow back Wednesday.  I expect to receive my remaining returns in the next month. 


I'm not sure exactly what has transpired, but I believe they are trying to make the best of the situation.  I would agree, sometimes their communication skills are slow, however I believe that will improve as things stabilize. I am giving time to correct whatever issues they are experiencing and recommend others do the same.

I think we should all should give Assured Capital time to make everything good.  As mention in one of the rebuttals.   Per the email they are working on returning all escrows deposits and returns.  I agree that communication must improve!!  I believe  they will meet their obligations.   Lets give them some time and work with them.  I do understand in order to work with the company there need to be effective communication.

My experience with these 3 individuals has been very positive.  While communications could be improved, they have managed to always come through with their obligations.
To suggest they promoted a Ponzi scheme is preposterous and disingenuous. 
They HAVE PERFORMED in the past and I hope for the future...
