UPDATE:
Current status of case:

There are 14 defendants in this case. Due to the complexity of the number of defendants (all of whom have attorneys), some defendants choosing new counsel, the number of victims (over 1,000), and the loss amounts involved, this case will continue to take some time to be resolved.

We presently have a trial date set for August 8, 2011...

...Additionally, defendants, Amit Ezyoni, Barak Braunshtain, and Eli Kaupp remain in fugitive status. If and when they are arrested, you will be notified.

For anyone wondering, our move (as one of apparently a thousand victims) was in July of 2003. Just to give you a timeline of how long the investigation takes to come to fruition. More time for the trial, more time for the collection and sorting of funds (not counting appeals), so perhaps the victims *might* get restitution a good 15 years after being extorted by a scam mover and broker.

The trial was set to start this past Monday. I wish I could have been able to travel out there to attend.

RE: United States v. Defendant(s) CHRISTOPHER A. SARIOL, LIMOR GEFEN, DANIEL G. RANGEL, DAVID R. LAMONDIN
Case Number 2003R00689 and Court Docket Number 07-CR-00788

Dear ----------:

The United States Department of Justice believes it is important to keep victims of federal crime informed of court proceedings. This notice provides information about the above-referenced criminal case.

Defendant Christopher Sariol changed his plea to guilty, on which day he was also sentenced to six months of probation. Therefore, the trial was canceled with regard to this defendant.

Presently, there is a trial set for August 6, 2012, for defendants: Gefen, Rangel, Goldberg, Aycock, Lamondin, Sheinfeld, and Subirats. Unless you receive a subpoena, for this trial, your appearance is not needed.

The maximum statutory penalty for the conspiracy to commit wire fraud and extortion, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371, is five years and a fine of $250,000. The maximum statutory penalty for the counts of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343 is 20 years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000, plus restitution if appropriate. The maximum statutory penalty for the counts of extortion in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1951 is 20 years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000. The maximum statutory penalty for the counts of money laundering in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1956(h) (conspiracy) and 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(1)(A)(i) (money laundering-promotion) is 20 years and a fine of $500,000, or twice the value of the property involved in the transaction, or whichever is greater. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the Court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.



6 Months probation. What a joke, No wonder the business is booming in the scam movers world. No personal jail time, no monetery fines, no retributions. I hope he gave great information in exchange for the light sentence.

I think he was one of the broker's sales guys. I'm hoping he got this great deal because he decided to turn on the others.

BTW, for anyone tracking the timeline, we were one of the later scam victims in 2003.

Yep. :roll:

The trial previously scheduled for defendant(s) STUART H. SHEINFELD on August 6, 2012, 09:00 AM at Courtroom 8, 4th Floor, 280 So. First Street, San Jose, CA has been cancelled. VNS will continue to provide you with updated case scheduling and event information.

On May 25, 2012, defendant STUART H. SHEINFELD pled guilty to the charges listed below. Any remaining counts will be disposed of at the time of sentencing. As a result of the guilty plea, there will be no trial involving this defendant.

Number of Charges - 2
Description of Charges - Interference with commerce by threats or violence
Disposition - Dismissed without Prejudice
Description of Charges - Accessory after the fact
Disposition - Guilty


The post-trial hearing previously scheduled for defendant(s), STUART H. SHEINFELD, on June 20, 2012, 10:00 AM at Courtroom 8, 4th Floor, 280 So. First Street, San Jose, CA has been cancelled. VNS will continue to provide you with updated case scheduling and event information.

Defendant STUART H. SHEINFELD was sentenced by the Court. Court ordered the defendant to the following:

Probation of 1 year(s)
Special Assessment of $25.00.

Key phrase there: INTERFERENCE WITH COMMERCE BY THREATS OR VIOLENCE

I just hope that that sweet deal of probation and a $25 fine came with some juicy testimony against his bosses.

$25 dollar fine? Our drivers get charged more than that if they have a tiny light bulb not working at an inspection station.

I applaud you MM, I would have given up hope long ago.

All the defendents when this was first started were mostly in their 30s...you don't see the Don Corleone of this group age 65 or anything. Not sure why I think that is of any interest but it just was something I noticed.
