Advisory Proceeding in Bankruptcy of Allou Healthcare Inc

Filing of Involuntary Petitions Against Defendants related to EuroFactors International

58. On or about June 30, 2003 an involuntary Chapter 7 petition was filed against defendant Jacob Jacobs by Congress Financial, Citibank, N.A., and La Salle Business Credit Inc. ("Petitioning Creditors").
59. On or about June 30, 2003 an involuntary Chapter 7 petition was filed against defendant Herman Jacobs by the Petitioning Creditors.
60. On or about June 30, 2003 an involuntary Chapter 7 petition was filed against defendant Victor Jacobs by the Petitioning Creditors.
61. Based upon an investigation conducted by Petitioning Creditors, it appears that each of Defendants allowed a $3.2 million Confession of Judgment, dated April 15, 2003, to be entered against them and filed with the Kings County Clerk (the "Confession of Judgment"), in favor of an entity known as Eurofactors International ("Eurofactors") having a post office box in Zurich, Switzerland.
62. Remarkably, the Confession of Judgment alleges that Eurofactors advanced $3.2 million to Defendants individually on March 3, 2003 as a loan with a maturity date of April 3, 2003, a mere thirty days later.
63. That loan was purportedly made on or about the same time Defendants owed $696,000 to the Debtors.
64. Eurofactors is referenced in the Debtors' system as a vendor. The only transaction on file shows that on March 25, 1996 the Debtors wired $500,000 to Eurofactors

Principal of Eurofactors International is Moses Kraus

As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
