Zeek Rewards: Jaymes Meyer, Preferred Merchant Solutions, Enters Into Plea Agreement
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.
