We recently had the pleasure of having one of our followers right a post about us. You can find that post here, titled A Little Guy Sticks It to Apple and Jamie Dimon . This really isn’t an update; I just wanted to take a little bit of time and try to bring some clarification to what was written
Enter A Meanss
Imagine you, as a stockholder, file a multimillion dollar judgment against Apple. They refuse to pay up, and you get a court order to confiscate merchandise from their computer stores. After obtaining a similar settlement against Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan Chase, you begin seizing the assets of your nearest Chase Bank.
Although much of the story A Meanss tells on his blog (A Meanns to an End) sounds far-fetched, the level of legal and financial detail lends it a ring of plausibility. If Meanns invented all this, he sure has one hell of an imagination.
Our Court order was to seize assets. In Apple’s case, that happened to be the merchandise they sell. They were lucky we left the tables.
My family and I only wish this was all a work of fiction. Try to keep in mind, what you read on this blog are things that have been approved for me to talk about. Hopefully our announcement on January 13th will clear up any doubt people might have about the validity of anything posted on this site.
Meanns Wins Multimillion Dollar Settlement
Although Meanss, who is under gag order, doesn’t say so directly, his blog suggests the lawsuit he filed against the federal government in 2009 related to malicious harassment (stalking, mail interference, phone surveillance, etc.) by an unnamed federal agency. The settlement was paid into an investment account which couldn’t be drawn as cash or into a private bank account. Instead, for some reason, it could only be invested in stocks or real estate.
The couple ultimately used most of the fund to purchase shares in Apple and Ford. They also transferred $1.4 million to an escrow account managed by JP Morgan Chase to buy a house. When the home purchase fell through, they sought to withdraw the $1.4 million and JP Morgan Chase refused to release it.
Meanwhile Apple and Ford failed to pay quarterly dividends Meanss was due. Neither company offered any explanation. They merely refused to respond to queries from either Meanss or his attorneys. Meanns blames his failure to receive the funds he was owed on ongoing government harassment. He claims to have an email the unnamed government agency sent JP Morgan Chase warning them not to release his funds for reasons of national security.
We haven’t filed a lawsuit against the Federal Government. We did file a lawsuit against ONE Government employee this past spring, which we have temporarily rescinded due to parting ways with the law firm that filed it.
We have gotten a few things from President Obama because of our harassment. We did get an Executive Order of Protection in June of 2009, which hasn’t done a whole lot of good since the harassment has actually gotten worse.
We also got a Federal Tax Exemption through 2012 because of the monies lost in interest due to our harassment.
When President Obama was told that our harassment had continued. Robert Gibbs notified our Attorney that President Obama had extended our Federal Tax Exemption through 2015.
Prior to the 2012 election, President Obama was shown proof of the continuous harassment by a member of his administration from 2009 to 2012. Instead of addressing the problem, he once again extended our Federal Tax Exemption through 2045. We didn’t ask for this, nor want it. All we wanted was to be left alone and have access to our monies.
We’ve had several settlements, the majority of which happened before our harassment began by this Government Agency. There are “no gag” orders pertaining to our settlements. There were standard non-disclosures put in place, but we have recently discovered those might be all null and void due to new evidence that has been uncovered.
Our settlements were put into investment accounts. The problem was, the Government Agency that was harassing us attached something to our social security numbers preventing transfers into our personal bank accounts. Along with preventing transfers, they also made it to where we couldn’t deposit any checks besides our normal paychecks. Because of this we were limited to what we could do with the funds in the accounts. We were able to purchase stock and invest in a Company, which we did. This Government Agency did everything they could to make sure we couldn’t physically touch our money.
We didn’t use most of the fund to purchase Apple and Ford Stock. It was actually a very tiny percentage. Apple and Ford weren’t the only stocks we purchased, there were a few others, but Apple and Ford were the only ones that paid a dividend.
We know for a fact that the failure of Apple and Ford to pay our dividend was due to the ongoing government harassment. Tim Cook and Alan Mulally explained how the dividends were paid to our Attorney. In our case, a dividend check would’ve automatically been issued. Both Cook and Mulally looked into it and found no record of a dividend check done for us. They tried to issue the checks manually and it still failed.
We ended up getting permission from Cook and Mulally to send agents into their companies. NSA agents went into Apple and Ford and were quickly able to find out what the problem was. At Apple and Ford, an employee who handles stock information had responded to an email from a “Government Agency”. This email asked for them to click on a link to confirm information regarding our account. Something in that link disabled the ability for Apple and Ford to issue checks for our accounts.
Something I want to make clear. Tim Cook and Alan Mulally led us to believe they would do everything they could to make it right for us. They even came up with alternatives such as Apple product, gift cards, vehicles, etc. to make up for not being able to pay our dividend and tide us over. They both failed numerous times on their own deadlines.
Once Jamie Dimon failed to comply with his order to release our funds, we knew there was something else going on. Agents were able to find an email sent to JP Morgan Chase telling them not to release our funds under any circumstances. Who was this email from? The same Government Agency that’s been harassing us all these years.
Meanss Obtains Court Order
After an extensive legal battle, Meanns ultimately obtained a court order requiring JP Morgan Chase to release the $1.4 million. They also obtained court orders requiring Apple front up with $12.6 million in unpaid dividends and Ford $600,000. In September, Apple was given 30 days to begin payments according to the schedule the judge set up.
Apple and Ford were both given 30 days initially and it wasn’t for the full amount. The first 30 days was a quarterly payment.
Meanss Begins Confiscating Merchandise
When Apple failed to comply, Meanns applied for and was granted a seizure of assets order. On October 11, federal marshals assisted him in executing the order on the Apple store in Keystone Crossing Indianapolis. In total he confiscated $275,000 worth of merchandise. On October 19th marshals arrested three retail staff at the Columbus Apple store when they tried to interfere with a seizure of assets order that netted Meanss $2.75 million of computer equipment. In early November, marshals assisted him in carrying out seizure of assets orders in two Apple stores in Louisville Kentucky, in which acquired $3.7 million worth of electronic equipment.
Meanwhile on October 31, Meanns started in on JP Morgan Chase with a seizure of assets order at the Chase Bank in Indianapolis. Everything in the bank was seized except for the server and records containing customer information. The process also netted him approximately $126,000 in cash in addition to rolls of coins.
It wasn’t Federal Marshals; it was the FBI who executed the order. The three in Columbus were arrested because they didn’t understand it was a Federal order. The manager and the other two employees saw where it came out of a Federal court in Indianapolis, IN. The three kept telling the agents this was Ohio and the order had no jurisdiction there. Local police were called to the location and confirmed to the three apple employees that they were idiots and it was a Federal Order.
In early November, the seizure was executed at three apple stores. One in Louisville, Ky and the Keystone location in Indianapolis once again. The third took place in New York City.
The JP Morgan Chase information was correct. We also got word today Dec. 5th, another Chase Bank location was served with the seizure of assets order. I will post something more about it when I have more detail.
Is Meanss’ Story Believable?
Obviously there are details missing from this story that would be useful in evaluating its believability. Meanns claims a gag order issued with the settlement prevents him from disclosing factual details. Even so, it would be useful to know his occupation and the circumstances that caused him to become the focus of government harassment.
There are details missing from our story. I am only writing about what I’ve been authorized by our Attorneys to do. There are other Government Agencies that have been extremely helpful to us over this period of time. We would like for this help to continue, so I’m only writing what I’m allowed to.
I cannot legally comment on the reason for our Gag order, but I can tell you it has nothing to do with any of our settlements.
I cannot comment at this time on the circumstances that caused me and my family to become the targets of the harassment we’ve been through. We have recently found a link between us and 140 other people who’ve been harassed by the same agency. We all have ONE thing in common.
I’m sorry I can’t be more open about specifics. The announcement on January 13th wouldn’t be happening if my blog was full of crap. Please be patient.
