RENUEN VICTIM-ALERT

In order to cover up their fraud, Renuen and its officers,directors, inside and outside counsel are filing frivolous lawsuits and lien actions against Renuen victims and anyone who tries to help them  and are trying to force victims into  signing a paper that says their job was complete and completed satisfactorily so Renuen can get funded.  They are doing this even if the job was never permitted, was permitted after the fact and the equipment was not authorized/approved in the state of Florida.

If you are one of those Renuen victims, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately and file a complaint. Give them all of your documentation and pictures of the work that was done.  Under Florida law, an unlicensed contractor cannot enforce their contract.  So any lien actions by Renuen  are fraudulent and void.  Renuen is an unlicensed contractor. We walk in the truth.  We will prevail.  Love to all, Cathy

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST! EPHREN TAYLOR PLEADS GUILTY! AMEN

Ephren Taylor, II, Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Fraud

 

ATLANTA – Ephren Taylor, II, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud by defrauding hundreds of victims of their retirement savings.

 

“Taylor’s guilty plea brings a measure of justice for the hundreds of his victims, including those hard-working Georgians who lost their life savings to his criminal scheme,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.

 

“Mr. Taylor exploited numerous investors by perpetrating a scheme that was based entirely on lies,” stated Special Agent in Charge Veronica Hyman-Pillot, IRS Criminal Investigation. “Mr. Taylor’s guilty plea today is an opportunity for him to admit to the deception and face the consequences of his actions.”

 

“The United States Secret Service is aggressive in our investigative mission to arrest those who commit financial crimes.  In this case, we were particularly resolved to bring to justice a criminal who chose to take advantage of unsuspecting members of the public in environments of reverence and trust,” said Reginald G. Moore, Special Agent in Charge of the United States Secret Service, Atlanta Field Office.

 

According to United States Attorney Yates, the charges and other information presented in court: From at least April 2009 through October 2010, Ephren Taylor, II, then CEO of City Capital Corporation, and his co-defendant Wendy Connor, the former COO of City Capital Corporation, participated in a conspiracy to defraud investors.  In pleading guilty, Taylor acknowledged that he defrauded hundreds of investors of more than $7 million nationwide.  In a separate hearing, co-defendant Wendy Connor also pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of money taken by fraud.

As part of the scheme, Taylor traveled around the country on a “Building Wealth Tour,” where he gave wealth management seminars to church congregations.  During this tour, Taylor claimed to be a socially conscious investor and falsely claimed that 20% of profits were donated to charity.  One of the churches on the “Building Wealth Tour” was the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga.  While there, Taylor and Connor met potential investors to discuss possible investments.  Over 80 individuals from Georgia lost more than $2 million because of Taylor’s scheme.

The investments pushed by Taylor included investing in promissory notes, where the funds invested would be used to support small businesses, such as laundries, juice bars, and gas stations.  Taylor falsely represented the revenues and returns for these businesses knowing that they were not profitable.

Taylor also pushed an investment in sweepstakes machines.  Sweepstakes machines are computers loaded with various games that allow players to win cash prizes.  Taylor published offering materials that falsely claimed the average sweepstakes machine would generate 300% investor returns.  He also stated that the sweepstakes machine investments were 100% risk free.

Taylor knew that the investments he was touting were not profitable and that investors were not receiving actual returns from their investments.

 

The sentencing for Ephren Taylor, 32, of Overland Park, Kan., is scheduled for December 18, 2014, at 2:30 p.m.  Wendy Connor, 45, of  Raleigh, N.C., is scheduled to be sentenced on December 18, 2014, at 9:30 a.m.

 

This case is being investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation and the United States Secret Service.

 

Assistant United States Attorney Christopher J. Huber is prosecuting the case.

Lerman Law Firm Applauds WPTV Consumer Watchdog Jenn Strathman’s Warning on Home Improvement Contracts

Cathy Lerman, principal of the Lerman Law Firm, has issued  a press release praising the work of Jenn Strathman, WPTV Consumer Watchdog, for her two part series on home improvement contracts and tips on what the consumer should be watchful for when signing these contracts.  Jenn used as an example, RENUEN (RENU) a solar contractor with many complaints who had contracted with two elderly women that Jenn interviewed.  Neither of the Renuen systems worked as promised, they were not permitted and these elderly women  did not receive the promised rebates-until they appeared on WPTV and then the company CEO, Jeffrey Nemes,  offered to pay part or all of them through RENUEN!

Let this be a lesson to the consumer, particularly our senior consumers, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING WITHOUT A LAWYER REVIEWING IT!  There are too many fraudsters in south Florida that prey on the elderly.   Senior citizens must stay vigilant and have an attorney review any contract they are signing that involves significant rights-like the right of Renuen to lien their home!  This is a CONSUMER ALERT THAT EVERYONE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO.

The link to our Press Release on Jenn’s two part series is below:

A MESSAGE TO RENUEN (RENU) AND THEIR COUNSEL- ALEXANDER KIM

HERE IS THE EMAIL MESSAGE KIM SENT MY CLIENT:

My company was informed by WPTV that you lodged a compliant against my company. As you know that the company was trying to settle the issue with you over the solar attic fan which the company in its opinion could not be installed on the metal roof, due to it potentially voiding your roof warranty.  You had informed Aqua Finance that you will be retaining an attorney over this issue, and to date, I have not had any communication from a counsel representing you.

The company would like to settle this matter with you so we can move forward. Would you suggest an offer of settlement that the company can consider?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

D. Alexander Kim, Esq.
HERE IS MY RESPONSE:
Mr. Kim, I am in receipt of your email below directed to my client,  Mr. Collier.  Please be advised that you are hereby instructed to cease and desist any further communications with him. Also be advised that Mr. Collier at no time has contacted Aqua Finance and told them he was retaining an attorney. He has never spoken with Aqua Finance. Please produce a copy of the tape of that conversation because that is a lie. I would not put it above your company to have impersonated Mr. Collier to “create” such a conversation.
There is no way to “settle” a crime committed against a resident of the state of Florida except by criminal conviction. Mr. Collier has no interest in any further interaction with your company that forged his name on documents, sold him an unpermitted solar system that it knew would not work on his house with a contract that was void on its face and contained a qualifier who had resigned months earlier,  tried to shut him up by offering money and sending him a settlement agreement with a confidentiality clause and threatened him by sending him more than 7 copies of liens on his house evidencing that Renuen was liening his house because he refused to sign the financing documents indicating that the work performed by Renuen (using the term “work” loosely) was acceptable when in fact this whole operation is a scam, a Ponzi scheme and as the SEC uses the term a “pump and dump” on RENU stock.
You are despicable. I can only hope that you, Jeff, Lynn and all of your cohorts are shortly indicted and spend a long, long time behind bars. The targeting of hundreds of elderly, minorities and naive consumers in Florida to sell worthless solar systems through fraudulent, forged documents is certainly not a simple misunderstanding.
I have no intention of letting all of you get away with this like you did in New Jersey. You will be prosecuted.  Count on it. Very truly yours, Cathy J. Lerman, Esq.

ENERGY SOLUTIONS BY TOTAL IS A NEW JERSEY CORP THAT IS AFFILIATED WITH RENUEN-DO NOT BE FOOLED

PLEASE NOTE  I WAS TOLD THAT Energy Solutions by Total is a duly authorized New Jersey Corporation. RenuEn Corporation uses the name Energy Solutions in its marketing efforts. The President of the New Jersey Corporation, CHRISTOPHER EDWARDS, has requested that this be made known to any consumer that has conducted business with RenuEn (Energy Solutions)  so that consumers understand that Energy Solutions by Total of New Jersey is affiliated with or part of RENUEN. 

 

HOWEVER, UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION TODAY I FOUND THAT THEY WERE AFFILIATED WITH REUNUEN (RENU). PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL POLICE AGENCY IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY THIS COMPANY AND ADVISE THEM THAT THEY MAY BE PART OF THE RENUEN PONZI SCHEME.. PLEASE HAVE THE POLICE AGENCY CONTACT ME AT CLERMAN@LERMANFIRM.COM SO I CAN EXPLAIN THE SCAM AND PROVIDE FURTHER INFORMATION.  DO NOT CONTRACT WITH ANYONE THAT HAS DONE BUSINESS WITH JEFF NEMES OR RENUEN.  THANK YOU.

THERE MAY BE A VIABLE CLASS ACTION SUIT FOR RENUEN (RENU) VICTIMS-BUT NOT AGAINST RENUEN

YESTERDAY, I CLARIFIED THE RUMOR THAT THERE WAS A BIG CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST RENUEN AND NEMES BREWING.  THERE IS NOT.  THE REASON A PONZI SCHEME GENERALLY COMES TO LIGHT IS BECAUSE THE PONZI SCHEMER RUNS OUT OF NEW VICTIMS AND/OR MONEY.  RIGHT NOW MY PRIORITIES ARE:

1. STOP NEMES AND HIS COHORTS FROM DOING BUSINESS

2. PUT NEMES AND HIS COHORTS IN JAIL AWAITING TRIAL

3. HAVE NEMES AND HIS COHORTS  CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR A REALLY LONG TIME-NOT 5 YEARS PROBATION LIKE HIS LAST FELONY SENTENCE WHICH WAS JUST PLAIN STUPID

4. INVESTIGATE THE ACTIVITIES OF OTHERS WHO FACILITATED AND AIDED NEMES AND HIS TEAM OF CRIMINALS.  NO ONE RUNS A PONZI SCHEME ALONE. THEY HAVE LOTS OF HELP.  OUR FIRM IS INVESTIGATING SEVERAL THIRD PARTIES WHO APPEAR TO HAVE PROTECTED NEMES’ SCHEME FROM DISCLOSURE TO HIS TARGETS AND FACILITATED HIS THEFT OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM UNSUSPECTING VICTIMS, MANY OF THEM ELDERLY. 

TRUST ME-IF OUR INVESTIGATION REVEALS THAT THERE ARE THIRD PARTIES WHO ARE FINANCIALLY VIABLE TO HELP PAY A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR JUDGMENT FOR THE VICTIMS-WE WILL SUE ALL OF THEM.  JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT I WAS CLEAR.  THERE IS NO POINT IN SUING A MAN AND A COMPANY THAT IS WORTHLESS AND ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE. 

YOU HAVE TO FIND CULPABLE PEOPLE AND COMPANIES WITH MONEY.  WE ARE WORKING ON THAT.  REGARDS, CATHY

PS  JUST A NOTE OF THANKS FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE COME FORWARD TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO OUR FIRM TO ASSIST US AND LAW ENFORCEMENT IN INDICTING NEMES AND HIS CRIMINAL COHORTS.  I KNOW YOU WILL BE RICHLY BLESSED FOR HELPING THESE POOR PEOPLE.

LET’S SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON JEFF NEMES AND RENUEN (RENU)-THERE IS NO MONEY FOR THE VICTIMS

THERE IS NO VIABLE CLASS ACTION SUIT ON RENUEN.  JEFF NEMES AND HIS WIFE, LYNN NEMES, AND HIS CRONIES HAVE ALREADY BLOWN THREW ALL OF THE MONEY FROM THE VICTIMS AND INVESTORS. DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO THINKING THAT A CLASS ACTION SUIT IS COMING AND YOU WILL BE COMPENSATED FOR WHATEVER MONIES YOU GAVE OR INVESTED IN RENUEN.

THIS IS  A CLASSIC PONZI SCHEME.  NEMES IS RUNNING OUT OF MONEY. YOU DON’T SUE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE THE MONEY THEY TOOK FROM YOU- THAT IS A WASTE OF TIME-YOU PUT THEM IN JAIL!

 

OUR LAW FIRM IN COOPERATION WITH SEVERAL WITNESSES, WHISTLE BLOWERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT ARE WORKING TO PUT NEMES AND HIS CRIMINAL TEAM BEHIND BARS.  BUT DON’T BE FOOLED INTO BELIEVING THAT THERE IS SOME BIG PAY DAY COMING FOR THE RENUEN VICTIMS.  WHATEVER MONEY NEMES, HIS WIFE. AND HIS COHORTS HAVE STOLEN IS LONG GONE.
