6338 Snider Road #291, Mason OH 45040
Commonwealth of Kentucky
Jessamine District Court
The Estate of Alvina Jewell Burgin,
Case No.: 12-P-00302
Petition for Information, Appointment of Special Public Representative for Investors, & Request for Supervised Administration
I Daniel Monahan of 6338 Snider Road #291, Mason OH 45040 come before the Court as an Individual and an Investor in Alvina Jewell “Robbins” Burgin Sale & Assignment business ventures. I made my first initial investment in December of 2002 with Ten Shares of James A. Meaders & W.R. Meadows investments for $1000.00. Since that time I have purchased and have been connected to the purchase of hundreds of thousands of dollars of investment in Sale & Assignments.
Background Information / History --- Alvina Jewell “Robbins” Burgin (Robbins, as known by investors) has approximately 11,300 Investors. Robbins sold nine (9) different investment avenues (Sales & Assignments) for the recovery of unpaid/unclaimed mineral rights royalties, on agreements she possessed. For James A. Meaders of Dallas County, TX - Robbins sold shares for Jefferson County Federal (10,000 shares), Jefferson County State (10,000 shares), Atascosa County (10,000 shares), Shelby County (10,000 shares), Panola County (10,000 shares), Polk County (10,000 shares) and then William Richard Meadows (10,000 shares). She also sold “Conveyances” for J.P. Barkley of Wichita Falls, TX (a business partner of William Richard Meadows). The actual numbers sold on these conveyances are unknown.
Investors were promised a minimum estimated return of $1,852,500.00 per James A. Meaders share (based on 60,000 shares sold) and $2,037,000.00 per William Richard Meadows share (based on 10,000 shares sold). These estimates where given based on proposed settlement agreements reached.
Robbins sold over 70,000 (SEVENTY THOUSAND) shares at $100.00 (ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS) each. She generated $7,000,000.00 (SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS) or more! …
This fact is well documented with the Kentucky Office of Financial Institutions, now called the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI). Rhonda Paul, Investigator has provided sworn testimony that in her investigation (that she could find by bank records in a short period of time) that Robbins had generated $3.3 Million dollars deposited in five bank accounts, in a three year period just prior to the active investigation against Robbins.
The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office, The Consumer Protection Cabinet for Kentucky – Office of Financial Institutions / Department of Financial Institutions (New Name for Agency) - Franklin Circuit Court, Division II, Civil Action Number 06-CI-00114 – Fayette County Circuit Court and the U. S. Postal Inspection Service all have participated in the investigation, prosecution and subsequent conviction of Robbins.
From the DFI - The Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has investigated the offerings sold by Jewell Robbins, aka Jewell Burgin, and found them to be unregistered securities. Robbins is permanently banned from selling investments in Kentucky. The following information details court actions against Robbins in Franklin Circuit Court Case 06-CI-114, as well as a separate Fayette County Circuit Court criminal case.
• In the 1980s, Robbins began selling unregistered securities in the form of “interests in litigation.” She sold to investors fractional interests in what she might recover as a result of lawsuits filed on behalf of heirs attempting to obtain shares of inheritance from the Spindletop oil strike in Texas.
• Robbins also sold interest in an alleged judgment for billions of dollars and a movie to be titled “Swindletop.”
• Investors have told DFI officials that Robbins claimed the government or a certified public accountant was holding money for disbursement. Robbins has been unable to provide DFI with any documentation to support this claim and admitted in court on May 1, 2007, that she had not recovered any substantial funds.
• In 2003, the state Attorney General’s Office obtained an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Robbins. The document states that Robbins, who signed the document, agrees that she, her agents, employees, representatives, etc., will “immediately cease and desist from advertising, soliciting and accepting money from any natural person for the assignment of any interest in future and/or pending litigation involving the estate of James Meaders or the William R. Meadows’ Estate.”
• DFI obtained a permanent injunction in June 2006 to prohibit Robbins from offering or selling securities without DFI approval. DFI’s complaint alleged Robbins failed to disclose the exact nature of the investment to potential investors and the offering was not registered.
• The injunction also required Robbins to assist DFI in identifying all her investors and furnish DFI with her banking information.
• In October 2006, DFI filed a contempt of court motion against Robbins. The motion alleges three violations of the voluntary permanent injunction: (1) she continued selling securities, (2) failed to assist DFI by identifying her investors and (3) failed to supply DFI with names and locations of financial institutions in which she and her associates maintained accounts.
• In May 2007, Franklin Circuit Court Judge Thomas D. Wingate signed an order finding Jewell Robbins in contempt of court for “a willful, knowing violation” of the injunction. He sentenced Robbins to 120 days in the Franklin County Jail but suspended the jail time on condition that she comply with his order and the original injunction.
• In June 2008, DFI entered a motion in Franklin Circuit Court to hold Robbins in contempt, stating that she continues to defy the court's order to refrain from selling securities.
• In July 2008, Robbins was sentenced to 120 days in jail by Judge Wingate in Franklin Circuit Court. She was found in contempt of court because she continued to sell securities despite the court order. The judge released her from custody for medical treatment, with the provision that she report to the jail when released from the hospital. The Court of Appeals denied Robbins’ motion for emergency relief and motion for immediate relief, and she did serve the jail sentence.
• In a separate case, in September 2008, a Fayette County grand jury indicted Robbins on charges that she illegally sold securities related to the 1901 Spindletop oil strike. She was indicted on four felony counts, each punishable by one to five years in prison. The case was prosecuted by Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson through the work of the Financial Crimes Task Force. The charges were a result of an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and DFI.
• In February 2009, Robbins pleaded guilty in Fayette County Circuit Court to one count of violating Kentucky’s securities laws covering registration. The maximum possible penalty was five years in prison, and the Commonwealth recommended three years.
• In April 2009, Robbins was sentenced in Fayette County Circuit Court to three years in the state penitentiary, probated for five years, for violating Kentucky’s securities laws covering registration.
The Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions communicates to those that contact them that Investors have a right to full disclosure of information related to an investment.
Jewell Robbins has shared with me some time ago that she agreed to a settlement with a Bank/Oil Company for monies due to the Estate under contract. She indicated that this settlement was for millions upon millions & millions of dollars. She further stated that the payment would be paid directly to an Offshore Limited Liability (Foreign Company) located in the Cayman Islands. She had said that the settlement would be tax free and that the money would be placed in NON-Interest Bearing Accounts. She would leave the money in these account(s) untouched until such a time that she would settle other interests for the larger sum of funds she told people that were coming and distribute the fund jointly.
I ask the Court to have the Estate Administration / Special Representatives / Interested Parties to present any information about settlement offers, monies or accounts set up to receive funds in the Cayman Islands or any Foreign destination including but not limited to travel (to or from), phone contact information, account information, banking institutions, companies and the like.
Jewell Robbins shared before her death an additional large settlement proposal /offer with some friends/investors of ours. The settlement offer/proposal was in the billions of dollars. Robbins communicated that the settlement offer dictated the exact percentage that she would pay herself / family. She had declined the offer based on not being happy with the five percent offered as her portion. Our friends / investors saw the physical copy of the settlement offer. Jewell promised to give them a copy of the document. They met her at a restaurant and spoke of it while viewing the documents. No copy machine was available that morning where the couple met Robbins. Shortly after that Jewell got ill and went into the nursing home and died not to long after that. Our friends/investors asked Robert Mercer for a copy of the document and he told them it was not any business of theirs and yelled at them. They then even tried to contact Jewell’s daughters and they will not return any of the phone calls. The couple has specific information that they viewed in the proposal and will provide to the court testimony / affidavits if required.
Mr. Mercer implies that the Robbins Burgin Estate (from his Inventory description) “May range from a few thousands of dollars to billions”.
I ask the Court to have the Estate Administration / Special Representatives / Interested Parties to present any and all information about this Proposed Settlement Offer (or any other). All information including but not limited to … all parties’ names & addresses, attorney’s information, unclaimed funds accounts whether they be located at the Texas Comptroller’s Office, the United States Treasury – Department of Unclaimed Funds Trust, any State or Federal Government Agency, Banking Entities or any other business entity.
I ask the court to appoint a “Special Public Representative” to represent the interests of the approximately 11,300 Investors in Alvina Jewell Robbins Burgin business interests purchased through May 7, 2007.
One of the areas I would ask the Court to have the “Special Public Representative” focus on would be the protection of Investors Information. When we purchased the Sales & Assignments an individual was required to give their Full Name, Address, City, State, Zip Code and Social Security Numbers. Then there is information related to our Method of Payments, i.e. Checking Account Numbers, Savings Account Info, Credit/Debit Card Numbers. There are laws to provide protection of personal information and I would like to see the information is secured and protected. At the current time I understand that several individuals connected to Jewell have obtained the CD’s with all this information and the actual hard copies of the paperwork.
Additionally the Special Public Representative could see that Investors (who would be viewed as creditors of Robbins Estate) would receive any return on investment from current and/or future recovered / unclaimed mineral rights royalties / finders’ fee settlements for monies or any other revenue due to James A Meaders, William R. Meadows & J.P. Barkley. Robbins Codicil in her will projects forth Mr. Mercer’s responsibility for collection of these assets beyond her death.
Additionally, I ask the Court to change the Estate of Alvina Jewell “Robbins” Burgin to a “Supervised Administration” having Angela Carter and Robert Mercer report all of their activities to the Court regarding the Estate on a prompt and timely basis to protect the interests of thousands of individuals.
