If you know Trendon Shavers (www.trendonshavers.com) and you know the make and model of the brand new BMW or the F550 truck he recently purchased on any other assets he has,  you might want to let the IRS know about it.  Any assets Trendon Shavors has or controls could only have been purchased with fraudulent income from his Bitcoin Securities Ponzi scheme.

Bump...any news? Perhaps Trendon should take his story to Hollywood....I'd watch that movie!

If the SEC and the FED can not prosecute executives at HSBC, Goldman, Bear, Lehman and MF Global etc. for fraud then there is no way they are bringing in a piker like Trendon Shavers for scamming with his Internet play money. The only hope is income tax fraud cause no way the Shavers' can afford those vehicles and that home on Ashley's Six Flags income.

Legally would he be ok if he claimed it as 1099 investment income?  If he paid taxes then it wouldn't be an IRS issue, correct?

He probably has very few coins left and sold them for a lot cheaper than they are now.

But do we know where he is?

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

So, did everyone give up or forget about this? Just odd how steady posts were , then suddenly halted.
Nothing will happen.
From what I've seen, everything here is hot air only.
There were lots of threats, but everybody chickened out.
All talk, no action; it's ridiculous.
Expect other scams like this in the future.

No, but mostly because the sort of folks that'd fall for this sort of thing are blissfully poor by now and only getting poorer.

I don't get why people claim he has xxx,xxx coins...if he even had that many on deposit where do you think the 7% came from?

I wouldn't be surprised If he quit paying out before running out of coin entirely but to say mid 6 figures were left seems crazy

If he's really still living at a known location with no personal "visits" it's quite amusing no one is willing to pay a visit

Luckily almost entirely avoided this odvious scam. Made a few week gamble for the 7% and got out in time xD

This is known as picking up nickels in front of a steamroller.  Fun maybe, but really stupid.

The SEC is seeking a court order to freeze the assets of Shavers and BTCST in addition to other relief, including permanent injunctions, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains with prejudgment interest, and financial penalties.

Meaning they haven't frozen his assets yet??

I doubt we see a payday, especially since some of the PT destroyed their data. But this is at least good!

Note that the press release says that Trendon only cleared $150k on the scam.  There won't be any recovery of funds.

And he lost a lot more, but still, they froze his bank assets, and they can sell his assets AKA house, car. So some of the funds can be used to pay back some people.

Pretty sure in texas they cant take his house. Also this is only the sec and not the fbi.

The sec is trying to get a court order... why not do it first then tell pirate?

Seems like they have a weak case or something. Anyway 150000.... that wont go far even if collected.

yeah, I think it will be hard to get a conviction. Still, I didn't expect the SEC to do anything.

It's gonna be interesting to see if they'll do a Madoff trying to claw back from those that profited from pirate, like theymos.
