The Proof of Claim (and any supporting documents) may be sent to the Receiver (1) by e-mail attachment to the e-mail address creativecapitalreceivership@gjb-law.com or (2) by mail, overnight courier or hand-delivery to:

You should send to the Receiver all documents that you believe will help show the basis for your claim, including cancelled checks, bank statements, deposit slips, receipts, money orders, letters, investment club records, etc. If you can’t get documents after trying, you should explain on the Proof of Claim why the documents are not available.

Yes, but your claim must be reviewed and verified by the Receiver and approved by the Court.

Back to top
13. Will the Receiver tell me if the information I provide is not appropriate or sufficient?
Yes, if you submit an incomplete or insufficient Proof of Claim form, including insufficient supporting documentation, you will be notified by the Receiver before a claim is finally determined by the Court.

The amounts that will be distributed will not be determined until after the claims process has mostly been completed. The final amount of any distribution must be determined by the Court.

Back to top
23. Can someone I know assist me in filling out the Proof of Claim form?
Yes. You may get help from someone to complete your Proof of Claim form, but you must review and sign your Proof of Claim yourself.

Back to top
24. Can the Receiver give me investment details if I don’t remember how much I invested and when?
The Receiver will review each claim and may be able to provide information about your investment that you cannot provide. But the claims process requires that you gather the records of your payments you made and any repayments from the Receivership Entities. So it is important that you do your best to give as much detail as you can in the Proof of Claim form and include all supporting payment documentation that you do have with your claim.

Your bank or financial institution should be able to provide bank statements, cancelled checks, or records of cash withdrawals and deposits. If you do not remember the specific dates of any transaction, the Receiver recommends reviewing your records or requesting from your bank or financial institution a range of dates during which you believe transfers occurred.

Back to top
25. Is there a fee or charge for submitting a Proof of Claim?
No. There is no fee or charge to submit a claim to the Receiver. You should be careful in dealing with any person who requests or demands a fee or other payment to submit your claim to the Receiver.

NOTE: You must pay postage for a Proof of Claim sent by mail or the cost of any delivery service such as UPS® or FedEx® that you use. There is no charge to send claim information to the Receiver by e-mail.

27. I invested money more than one time in my own name. Do I need to submit more than one Proof of Claim?
No. You should use one Proof of Claim for all amounts you invested in your name and all repayments to anyone based on the amounts you invested. You should give details about the different investments and repayments on page 2, sections 1 and 2 of the Proof of Claim.

Back to top
28. I made an investment in my name, but the investment was for the benefit of someone else. Which name should I use?
The Proof of Claim should be submitted in your name for all investments made in your name. But you must include on your Proof of Claim repayments made to someone else on account of money invested in your name. You should give details on page 2, section 2 and supporting documents showing your investment and all repayments.

Back to top
29. My money was used for an investment in someone else’s name. Can I include those investments on my Proof of Claim?
No. You may submit a Proof of Claim only for amounts invested in your name. However, you may give the Receiver information on your Proof of Claim (or an attached sheet of paper) about other persons who invested with money you gave them. Also, you should encourage anyone who made an investment in their name (with your money or otherwise) to submit a Proof of Claim in their name.

Back to top
