Did anyone contact payb.tc? Does anyone know anything about Trendon Shavers judjement? I'd like to know whether there is any chance of recovering a part of our BTC.

Well, from the sounds of it Trendon didn't have many assets left to seize and still carries a considerable amount of debt.  So I doubt that much, if anything, gets paid out...

Of course it's hard to believe Trendon wasted a quarter million BTCs, with nothing substancial left now. Even when the exchange rate was way lower back then.
We'll see, I guess. He will give his "strategy" a second though when facing two-digit jailtime..

If he does still have a decent amount of bitcoins left then I'd bet that as soon as the judgement is made and reality sets in for him (before sentencing) then he will probably go on the run...

As for evidence: I started to get suspicious when I noticed that coins I sent to Ian were moved in July this year. And from the history of that address, it seems like it was one of Ian's pooling addresses.

Well at least from the SEC document we know that pay.btc was a real pass-through. It could still be though that Ian kept some coins for himself when it was clear that things would collapse.

That would not surprise me at all.  He may have ended up with a lot more than he started with - he seemed a little worried about clawback...

I'm pretty sure he made a good profit. I'm also suspecting that he did not forward everything to Pirate (his way to "transfer" coins makes it impossible to trace them on the blockchain).

For example, 1CWG3oZbDMjFjyZqoaBMcu6HVn9smRCHMp is an address to which some of the deposits from BMax investors were directly transferred so I'm pretty sure it's one of Ian's pooling addresses. According to the blockchain, there still were withdrawals in July 2013 which is after Trendon defaulted; the SEC was already involved. That's why I assume that Ian has the funds to honor the withdrawal requests his investors made before the default.
