On March 10th, the Department of Justice files criminal charges against Jaymes Meyer, of Preferred Merchant Solutions. The criminal Counts charged in this case are 18USC 1503(a) INFLUENCE/INJURING OFFICER/JUROR/WITNESS (1). and 18USC 2 (accessory to a crime).
The Bill of Information charges that Meyers engaged in an elaborate obstruction of justice to conceal millions of dollars from the Government using a series of foreign and domestic banking and brokerage accounts.
“In or about July 2012, RVG and Meyer, through Preferred Merchants, executed a Declaration of Trust establishing the RVG Corporate Trust”. It goes on to say that “On or about August 1, 2012, approximately $20 million of RVG assets was deposited into the RVG Trust account. The next day, Meyer contacted Bay Area Escrow and directed approximately $2.6 million to be transferred to Preferred Merchants.”
But wait, it gets better…. after an Assistant Director of the SEC contacted Meyer (by phone) on August 16, 2012 of a securities fraud investigation and a Court order freezing RVG’s assets, within about 20 minutes of this call from the SEC, Meyer directed another transfer from the RVG Trust in the amount of $4.8 million.
