Recently I became curious as to why I hadn't heard anything more about this. I poked around a little on the internet and found that on April 26, 2013 the SEC had issued (34-69469) an "Order Directing Disbursement of Fair Fund", This order says in part:
The Plan provides that a portion of the Fair Fund consisting of disgorgement, prejudgment interest, and civil penalties, plus any accrued interest less a reserve for expenses and taxes, be transferred by the Commission to The Huntington National Bank for distribution by the Fund Administrator when a validated list of payees with the identification information required to make the distribution has been received and accepted by the staff. The validated list of payees, which is for a total disbursement amount of $21,053,635.14, has been received and accepted.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Commission staff shall transfer $21,053,635.14 of the Fair Fund to The Huntington National Bank, and the Fund Administrator shall distribute such monies to investors, as provided for in the Plan.
This started me worrying that my check had been sent to my old address or lost in the mail or something. But when I called the Fair Fund help number they told me that despite the above the SEC was still reviewing the claims list and they had no idea when the money would be distributed.
Hopefully it won't be too much longer. The whole process has been more than a bit annoying. It will be really aggravating if it turns out my claim is valued at less than $10 in which case I won't receive anything (the claims forms provided no useful advice as how to estimate your claim value and thus determine if it was worth expending the considerable effort and some expense involved in filing a claim).
