Seven Arts Pictures Plc Seven Arts Pictures Plc - In Liquidation (High Court of Justice 9349 of 2011) - List of Directors implicated in Fraud Los Angeles California
The following are a list of Directors of Seven Arts Pictures Plc that went into Liquidation implicated in Asset Transfer Fraud.
We are affected as the group above solicited an investment of $400,000.00 on September 18th 2009 under the direction of Peter Hoffman. He warranted in a contract that the film would be delivered no later than December 31st 2010. No film was ever made and he quietly without informing the investors put the company into liquidation and allegeley sold all the assets at under value to his new company Seven Arts Filmed Entertainment also trading in the UK. He along with his co Directors, Kate Hoffman, Elaine New and Julia Verdin then continued to pretend the film was still being made whilst accepting new investmnets from new investors with the new company, whilst keeping other investors quiet by not telling them the company was in liquidation so they could cause no publicity or harm to his outfit. [continued below]....
The US company Seven Arts Pictures reputation of a long standing film maker was duplicated in the UK with the same name. Investors then gave Peter Hoffmans monies they thought were being invested into movies but instead went directly into the pockets of Peter Hoffman and his Daughter Kate Hoffman.
Investors were then lulled into a sense of false security with emails being sent by Hoffman using the email address of his US company with the same name informing them on the progress of their investment whilst the company they actually invested in was already in liquidation in the UK.
Seven Arts has no contingency for these liabilities and it has not been shown in their financial statements as a contingent liability despite being a public Co.
On July 19, 2011 Officers of Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) raided the offices of Seven Arts Pictures Plc. (the “Company”) in London already in liquidation. Documents were taken appertaining to arrangements involving the subscription for shares in a number of companies which had lost value, resulting in subscribers making claims to tax relief in a Fraud masterminded by Hoffmans daughter, Kate Hofffman. The company had been used to collect millions of dollars in tax relief for movies that Hoffman never made.
