Background

In early-1998, a man named Gary Wilson Lacy ( Alta Loma, California ) recruited a dentist named Christopher Nix ( McCook, Nebraska ) got act as commission-paid 'independent contractor' whom solicited 'high net worth' U.S. citizens whom included highly paid professionals like Dr. Kenneth Ellis ( McCook, Nebraska ), Dr. Karl Wheeler ( Marsland, Nebraska ), Dr. Thomas Earle Miller ( North Platte, Nebraska ), and many others whom were 'privately invited' to attended specially designed 'offshore investment seminars' supported with numerous personal testimonials from other 'high-net-worth' like-minded individuals whom 'grew their wealth' by investing considerable sums of monies from their own personal life business savings of millions of dollars that went into 'private placement' high-yield investment programs ( HYIP ) where 'bank paper trading' profit returns offered up to 300% to be paid into 'international business companies' ( IBCs ) and/or 'independent offshore banks' correspondent bank accounts in foreign tax haven jurisdictions around the world.


Seminar attendees whom needed further detailed advice on how to arrange this for themselves were encouraged to contact Gary Lacy, a 'world wide privacy consultant', who advised by guiding novice individual investors through unfamiliar territories within the world of offshore financial investments to successfully grow their wealth further and quicker.


In 1998, this rich man's version of the old 'get rich quick scheme' saw hundreds of novices become involved but whom were unaware Gary Lacy always used 'cut-outs' or middle-men, especially one in-particular named Nigel J.M. Francis ( Michigan, Grenada, and Barbados ).


Until August 11, 2000 Nigel Francis was the executive director of the now-defunct independent offshore bank FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA LTD. (aka) FIRST BANK ( registered in Grenada), and he maintained the establishment of hundreds of international business companies and independent offshore banks using specially selected foreign attorneys who facilitated registering them in foreign tax haven jurisdictions with corresponding foreign bank accounts so 'no paper trail' of documents could otherwise lead back to those who actually controlled the flow of monies in-to and out-of those companies and banks, a procedure that Lacy had done many times for himself and others through his U.S. based business WORLD WIDE PRIVACY CONSULTING SERVICES ( Alta Loma, California ).


Many were unaware that Nigel Francis and a woman named Charmaine (lnu) handled numerous FIDELITY INTERNATIONAL BANK INC. ( Nauru ) international business company accounts from inside a Grand Anse, Grenada satellite office of FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA LTD. established in 1997 by James Gregory Ziegler (aka) Zig Ziegler, one of two (2) older brothers of Gilbert Allen Ziegler (aka) Van Arthur Brink who was the first CEO of FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA LTD. and executive director of FIDELITY INTERNATIONAL BANK INC. ( Nauru ) secretly operating for years in Grenada.


Lacy's preoccupation soliciting U.S. citizens into becoming commission-paid 'independent contractors', 'independent offshore bank investors and depositors', and/or 'operators of offshore banks' finally paid off in 2000 when Nebraska dentist Thomas E. Miller, who for 40-years built a respectable dental practice and saved millions of dollars for his life savings, followed the advice of consultant Gary Lacy who encouraged monies be deposited through Dr. Miller's new independent offshore bank LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. ( Grenada ) where in 2001 both Miller's monies and his offshore bank depositors' monies placed into high-yield investment programs 'vanished' under the control of others using sophisticated 'money-laundering' techniques that U.S. federal investigators could 'not' trace or recover without sufficient documentary evidence, government mutual legal assistance treaties, and regulated correspondent bank agreements from certain foreign jurisdictions.


Lacy also made contact with another man, Laurent Emmanuel Barnabe (aka) Larry Barnabe to arrange an international business company for Nebraska dentist Dr. Thomas Miller, however Lacy suggested Miller use one of his own international business companies INVEST MACERATA S.A. ( San Jose, Costa Rica ) and its local correspondent bank account to catch incoming money wire transfers for LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. deposit transfers in-to its primary local commercial bank account at GRENADA CO-OPERATIVE BANK LTD. ( St. George's, Grenada ).


Dr. Miller was also directed by Gary Lacy to redirect LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositor funds into independent offshore bank RENAISSANCE INTERNATIONAL BANK LTD. because Lacy knew Dennis R. Broska, who directed that bank, and who Miller subsequently met whereupon Dennis Broska took Miller's LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors' monies and redirected them into Broska's personal bank account in Las Vegas, Nevada.


In December 1999, Gary Lacy notified Dennis Broska the U.S. government was investigating 'all' Grenada independent offshore banks, not just the independent offshore bank FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA LTD., and suggested Broska return all LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositor monies after Lacy advised Dr. Miller to transfer depositor monies outside the jurisdiction of Grenada. Miller subsequently transferred monies in-to a Canada investment "Club."


In January 2000, Dr. Miller met another man in Miami, Florida whose father was Arthur Viechweg of HALIFAX HARBOUR HOLDINGS LTD. ( Grenada ). Arthur Viechweg encouraged Miller to place all LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors' monies into a high-yield investment trading program under Joseph Severin of MOUNTIES INVESTMENTS LTD. through a private placement firm INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD. ( St. George's, Grenada ) whose parent company was INTERSTAR MORTGAGE COMPANY ( Duluth, Minnesota ) because Viechweg knew Garry J. Milosevich, who directed INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD., and who Miller subsequently met whereupon Milosevich arranged to take Miller's LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors' $7,000,000 (USD) million dollars that Arthur Viechweg and his assistant Lisa Thomas transferred into INTERSTAR bank accounts whereupon INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD. then issued its own 'bearer bonds', and guaranteed interest rates of 120% ( see References below ) under the control, of:


- Joseph Severin (aka) Verlin Swartzendruber;
- Garry J. Milosevich (aka) Gary Milosevic (aka) Gary Milozevich; and,
- Daniel TePoel (aka) Daniel T. TePoel (aka) Daniel T. Poel.


[ NOTE: U.S. DRUG ENFORCEMENT foreign reports discovered the son of Arthur Viechweg was involved with illegal narcotic trafficking in the Caribbean while his father lived at the COYABA RESORT ( Grenada ) with Joseph Severin before they both moved to their CINNAMON HILL RESORT ( Grenada ) ]


From February 2, 2000 through April 2, 2001 INTERSTAR provided account balance and interest statements indicating LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositor monies of $7,000,000 (USD) million had accrued an investment balance by April 2, 2001 of $21,475,000 (USD) million.


Unfortunately, for LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors and Dr. Miller, INTERSTAR bearer bonds and statements proved 'worthless' when it was later discovered that Garry J. Milosevich and Joseph Severin money-laundered a good portion of all LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositor monies, and instead of investing it, tried purchasing the CINNAMON HILL RESORT ( Grenada ) from Robert Grant.


Joseph Severin fled from his office at the CINNAMON HILL RESORT ( Grenada ) and took much of the LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositor monies to the Czech Republic where in 2006 Severin was discovered still living in the lap of luxury there, while Milosevich was discovered living in Panama.


Dr. Miller hired attorney Jerry A. Seales ( Grenada ) to file a Supreme Court of Grenada lawsuit [ CLAIM NO.: GDAHCV2001 / 0318 ], on behalf of LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD., against INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD., Gary Milosevich [ Garry J. Milosevich ], MOUNTIES INVESTMENT LTD., and Joseph Severin, and on October 23, 2003 Miller saw the Supreme Court of Grenada award its judgment in favor of LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. for the amount of $24,125,000 (USD) million.


Although Milosevich agreed to make sizeable monthly payments, as his portion toward settling that judgment, Joseph Severin fled Grenada without paying anything.


After meetings between Dr. Miller, his attorney Jerry A. Seales, and Garry Milosevich who asked to have his monthly payments lowered and extended with that Grenada court, Joseph Severin was still being sought by Dr. Miller through his attorney Jerry Seales.


Not having received any further information for months as to the status of payments from Milosevich or how close Seales was to tracking down Severin to freeze his bank accounts on the basis of the Grenada Court judgment, Dr. Miller finally reached Seales who advised that he 'heard' Severin might be living in East Europe but that chances of recovering the largest portion of the LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors' millions was slim to none unless Miller would spend upwards of $2,000,000 (USD) million for costs to go after Severin bank accounts, 'if' Joseph Severin was still using 'that' particular name, as it was understood Severin used several alias names. Miller, not having enough money, offered Seales a contingency deal totaling $2,000,000 (USD) million on the basis of Seales recovering the $21,125,000 (USD) million, which was never done.


Strapped for funds and feeling the weight of LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors monetary losses, Dr. Miller returned for advice from consultant Gary Lacy who introduced Miller to the FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA LTD. network of failed independent offshore banks' "Restoration Project" Lacy promoted as an 'investment loss recovery program' led by Van Brink (aka) Gilbert Allen Ziegler and his brother James Gregory Ziegler claiming they were 'not involved' in any of the Restoration Project 'deals' but only provided those who signed-up for their private broadcast e-mail list with 'news' and 'updates' regarding the 'progress' of Restoration Project business financial 'deals', plus 'special offers' for those who wanted to earn money at home while waiting for all their money to be returned as "soon" as deals were completed.


To encourage Dr. Miller even further, Gary Lacy claimed having personally directed $750,000 (USD) - through his myriad of international business companies and bank accounts - into the Restoration Project because it promised up to 200% returns as soon as Project business financial 'deals' were complete, and Miller subsequently notified LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors about this Restoration Project sign-up list so they too could get reimbursed for their previous financial losses that would encompass their principal deposit monetary loss, their previous high yield interest rates of return on deposit monies lost, and for any monies they chose to send in support of assisting Restoration Project 'deals' it offered to return 'that' money too plus beneficial interest of up to 200%. Miller, again believing Lacy, also put what little funds he had left into the FIBG Restoration Project too.


What subsequently took place was that thousands of Restoration Project privately broadcast e-mails were worded in such convincing terms and sent to thousands of 'previous depositors', who were subsequently encouraged to bring in family members and close friends, that even more individuals added to the Restoration project 'list'.


From mid-2002 thru late-2005 the worldwide Restoration Project took in over $6,000,000 (USD) million dollars from hundreds of people, including Dr. Miller and his LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors, without returning any of their monies.


On December 18, 2003 a Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI ) Special Agent ( name in file ) was hand-delivered millions of pages of evidentiary 'proof' from one (1) of its foreign information assets sufficient to prosecute all responsible for the fraudulent Restoration Project scheme, however because she failed to review that information and pass it on to the Office of the U.S. Attorney, a federal Grand Jury convened during September 2004 failed to criminally indict anyone responsible for that fraud against hundreds of financial crime victims.


During July 2006, a meeting took place between a Central Intelligence Agency foreign case officer, U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service ( DSS ) Regional Security Officer ( RSO ), Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI ) agent, and the same foreign information asset who again hand-delivered and waited while foreign branches of the U.S. government verified millions of yet additional pages of evidentiary information surrounding foreign operations of the Restoration Project, which were then subsequently couriered under diplomatic pouch to the U.S. Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington D.C.


Although 'that' additional information was personally reviewed by foreign station case officers 'before' it was sent to the FBI in the United States, a few weeks later a U.S. based FBI Special Agent contacted its information asset to ask if they knew any reason 'why' the CIA would erase all the information contained on four (4) DVD information disks because by the time they reached the United States they were 'blank'.


During April 2007, the information asset again hand-delivered four (4) more duplicate DVD disks filled with millions of pages of evidentiary 'proof' to the FBI Special Agent who later acknowledged the disks were set up like an easy to access Wikipedia version of an international criminal information database.


Unbeknownst to the FBI, the information asset had also been closely monitoring activities of several major money launderers and organizers of the Restoration Project since 2002, and used certain pretexts to groom one of the major crooks into gathering all incriminating offshore banking records and address book for all his contacts and meet with him a remote location for a meeting with the FBI to become a witness who then agreed to cooperate with the U.S. government for prosecuting several others operating the Restoration Project.


In September 2007, the U.S. Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation decided that their 'insufficient budget' would curtail their investigation into those responsible for the fraudulent Restoration Project scheme. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the U.S. Attorney would not seek another federal Grand Jury to indict nor would it prosecute those responsible for financial crimes against victims of the Restoration Project. Unfortunately for victims, this is precisely how the U.S. government slammed its door on 5-years of foreign asset information work on 'that' case.

To Whom It May Concern:


A company I consult to has contributed many dollars to the Restoration Project process, not to mention countless hours in discussing thoroughly how the gifting process would work when it comes.


I use "when" since I fully believe (have faith) that gifting will take place. Do I portend to know the intimate details of the primary team? No, I do not, and I am quite content not to be in the know.


I can speak with great authority on the need-to-know basis, for I held the highest security clearance possible with the NSA.


Because of that training, still this day, when I am told something in confidence, it remains that way and does not even get passed along to my wife of over 20-years - which by the way, I trust implicitly!


Someone might ask, "If you trust your wife, why not confide in her?" Frankly, a good question, but easily answered - because I gave my word that I would keep the information in confidence.


There are many ways to ruin relationships and/or business deals - "give up a confidence"!"


Frankly, for over 3-years I have screamed security and I believe, simply because he was a nice guy, Van was one of the worst offenders.


Also, I am glad that the details have been worked out on the ‘gifting’ process, where the ‘giftor’ is not getting into the area of establishing structures, entities and the like to the ‘giftees’.


For as it was in Grenada, and by conversations here via Sealand e-mail, there are still people that are quite ignorant (not in insult - but a reality that someone is lacking in knowledge), but there are a few people bent on remaining ignorant even when they have been educated - now those types are really scary to me and should be to the Big Team and what they are accomplishing! Please not, through faith, I used the word "are", not might!


Frankly, in closing, I cannot imagine the "Big Team" giving up, when they know the finish line will be crossed!

In 2005, a few short weeks before Miller was arrested ( 19APR05 ) by federal authorities in North Platte, Nebraska on federal criminal charges of fraud, money-laundering, and tax evasion charges, a man named Marcus Roehmer ( Arizona ) telephoned Gary Wilson Lacy ( California ) to have Miller's computer hard-drive and any other paper record files erased where Rohmer, three (3) of his business associates, Joseph Severin, and Gary Lacy were named since it was Lacy who had set-up all their computers with a 'special encrypted security' software application program "File Assurity" distributed by ARTICSOFT TECHNOLOGIES INC. ( Colorado ) of ARTICSOFT LTD. ( United Kingdom ).


Lacy subsequently flew out-of Ontario, California airport only to arrive at Miller's residence claiming he was there to review all of Miller's LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. paper records and computer hard-drive records to determine if there was a way Miller could yet recover LINCOLN bank depositor monies for the depositors. Miller, trusting Lacy, left Lacy at his residence and went off to work at his dental office. Miller discovered that after Lacy left Miller's residence, Lacy had apparently ‘erased’ certain LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. and international business company records, e-mails, and FAX files from Miller's computer hard-drive. Federal investigators subsequently arrested Miller.


It is important for the public to realize that while major metropolitan areas may be filled to the brim with 'extremely cautious' professionals whom are acquainted with some of the nuances associated with international financial crime investment fraud schemes and surreptitious pretext representations therein, there still exists today a great number of professionals whom have only lived and breathed their small rural community neighborhood businesses continuing to practice 'trust' more-so than 'verify' principles as a way of life especially when it comes to rural town doctors who have - without fail - serviced such tight knit communities - in so many ways - for nearly 1/2 Century or more.


Interestingly, and still common today - amongst both 'small' and 'large' metropolitan business community professionals - are many 'closet anti-tax and anti-government interference people', and 'this' is precisely where Dr. Thomas Earle Miller and many thousands of other townspeople and their professionals fall as those most susceptible to financial crime fraud because 'they' are less likely to report having been ripped-off to 'federal law enforcement investigators'.


If one finds this analogy difficult to comprehend, the old American television series "Andy Of Mayberry" of the mid-1950s and early-1960s - still viewable on cable TV today - may be a crude but prime example of how a small town community relies on its local law enforcement to handle local problems in curious fashions without calling the FBI or IRS on local doctors, barbers, real estate agents, or other local businesspersons whom have lived in the community for 40-years or more that may refer one another to a so-called 'investment opportunity' that ends-up being fraudulent.


Many religious persons and elderly whom also exist in these small town communities are relatively more susceptible to sophisticated fraudulent pretexts and 'powers of suggestion' simply because many generations were 'not' raised or 'mentally trained' in small town environments and farming communities to detect deceit and fraudulent representations early-on.


Primarily this is the reason 'why' so many fraudsters from southern California and other more fraud-savvy metropolitan areas leave those areas and travel to prey on small community townspeople, the few exceptions of which may be bankers, lawyers, and accountants, however even amongst those small town community professionals a great deal of 'suspicious activity' and 'fraud' still gets overlooked until it mysteriously hits the headlines of their small town local newspaper.


The following small town newspaper article ( immediately below ) is a prime example of what the press published surrounding LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. and Dr. Thomas Earle Miller, the only individual mentioned in the entire federal case:

NORTH PLATTE BULLETIN


NP Dentist Returns To Nebraska After Psych Eval
by, Frank Graham


April 12, 2008


A former North Platte dentist has completed his psychological evaluation at a federal prison in Englewood Colorado and is on his way back to Nebraska.


The Bureau of Prisons is shuttling Thomas E. Miller through the federal prison system until he can be returned to Lincoln.


Miller (75) of 1821 West C Street, was ordered to undergo a competency evaluation after his last hearing at U.S. Federal Court in Lincoln, Nebraska on November 30, 2007 based on Miller refusing to call his federal pre-sentencing officer [ Fred Samway ] after ordered to do so by the court.


U.S. Magistrate Judge David L. Piester ordered that Miller’s evaluation be returned to the court prior to March 24, 2008. Piester also sealed the records and made them available only to the attorneys in the case.


During the hearing where Miller refused to cooperate and was in contempt, Miller continually interrupted the testimony of federal officials and the judge.


“I do not accept and I do not consent,” Miller kept saying even after warnings from U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf.


“I am here under duress, under threat, coercion, threat of my life, intimidation, harm and damage done to me,” Miller said. “I am here against my consent.”


Judge Kopf held Miller in contempt and ordered federal marshals to remove him from the courtroom.


“This is notice that if you touch my private person, you will spend 20-years in jail,” Miller said before U.S. Marshals lead him out of the courtroom.


After a brief recess, Kopf said it was clear from the record that Miller refused to recognize the jurisdiction of the Court and refused to cooperate.


Judge Kopf said Miller sent him numerous documents containing nothing but “gibberish” and are “totally incomprehensible.” Kopf entered the documents into the court file as motions and denied them all. In the documents, Miller accused the federal court officials of treasonous acts and violations of his civil rights. He claimed intending to convene a Grand Jury to seek indictments against federal officials for state and federal criminal acts. An Order, written by Kopf, said Miller’s documents were “filled with utter nonsense.” He said he denied the motions because they were “frivolous and malicious.”


Federal prosecutor Russell recommended Miller receive a psychiatric evaluation to see if he was competent to stand trial. Russell said Miller’s filings themselves are “so incoherent that they evidence a real question of his capacity to contribute to his own defense or even if he knows what is going on.”


Mark Scheffel, Miller’s court-appointed attorney, agreed.


Earlier this month, Kopf denied a request for more time to examine Miller from the Federal Detention Center in Englewood, Colorado, and then ordered the evaluation report to be submitted before March 24, 2008.


The Crime


Miller pled guilty to two (2) counts of fraud and false tax returns in U.S. District Court ( Lincoln, Nebraska ) September 4, 2007 and now faces maximum sentences of 3-years imprisonment for each count, fines of $100,000 or both when sentenced. No sentencing date has yet been set.


Miller is originally under federal indictment for nine (9) counts of tax fraud. The indictment said Miller claimed losses of $1,600,000 million on his 1998 tax return when there should have been none.


In 1999, according to the indictment, Miller reported having no pension or annuity income and a loss of $22,730 when he should have claimed $369,981 in pension or annuity income.


Miller also claimed losses in 2001 and 2002 when there should have been none, according to the indictment.


Miller told the North Platte Bulletin, after the indictments were handed down, that the losses were legitimate and he would fight all charges.


More Charges


Miller is also under indictment for money laundering, swindling, wire fraud, and mail fraud. Those charges are also pending Miller’s evaluation.


The indictment said Miller engaged in a scheme to defraud investors of money by making false representations of high interest certificates of deposit and then converting investments to his own use. Miller pleaded not guilty to the charges.


Between October 15, 1999 and July 31, 2003, Miller deposited more than $2,400,000 million worth of investors' monies into LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD., an international business corporation in the country of Grenada.


Miller was the director and controlled the activities of the bank, including deposits and disbursements, according to the indictment.


Miller converted at least $1,300,000 million to his personal use, the indictment said.


The indictment said Miller received a Class-I banking license from the government of Grenada.


According to the indictment, Miller solicited investors for purported high yield investment programs through the offshore bank, conducted seminars, and mailed solicitations to potential investors promoting offshore banking and investing. He requested investments of $100,000.


Miller told potential investors that all monies invested with him would be placed in certificates of deposit, that their investment was risk free and that their principal was guaranteed, according to the indictment.

The aforementioned case situation may 'not' be a 'competency' issue at all with regard to Dr. Miller because official federal documents indicate he 'first' fell as a 'financial crime victim' to Gary Wilson Lacy, who sits on the "Finance Council" of ST. PETER & ST. PAUL CHURCH ( Alta Loma, California ). Evidence indicates Lacy’s leadership of the elderly Dr. Miller and his LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors were all led down a crooked path into the depths of the devilish murky underworld of independent offshore investment banking and international business companies.


Miller's 40-years of small town community service and old town upbringing saw him at a great disadvantage of understanding how sophisticated international frauds work, and even more-so, helpless to defend against. Too, Miller was undoubtedly shocked over criminal charges having been brought against him and his name, photo, and even home address printed in the local newspaper.


There is also a chance Miller may have been confused as to his having been charged with federal criminal offenses when he knew fellow professionals in the same community were not prosecuted for the same offenses, yet involved in similar investment and seminar activities as well as having failed to file ‘their’ taxes properly too as a result of complexities surrounding ‘tax haven’ jurisdictions outside the United States where move savvy professionals might have known.


What sets Dr. Miller apart from others who fell as victims of financial crime?


Miller was easy for the FBI and IRS to catch. He’s about 75-years old, has lived in his community for several decades, maintained a dental practice locally for 40-years, he and his wife own their own home, and have relatives who live nearby. Miller simply did ‘not’ fit the mold of a fly-by-night con man, fraudster, or money-launderer.


What was it about Miller that invoked the wrath of federal officials and his judges, and should the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs ( BIA ) be reviewing the case situation of Miller or the U.S. District Court?


Miller vehemently refused to publicly admit his embarrassment within the small town community he was a respected professional in for 40-years but then made a fool out-of when taken by a city slicker from southern California, however his refusals to accept the jurisdiction of the court may be because he holds papers documenting him as a PEMBINA NATION, LITTLE SHELL tribe member, a Native American Indian Nation tribe believed granted special sovereignty dating back to the very early 1800s, and although Miller notified federal judge Kopf of this, the judge dismissed it as "gibberish" claiming Miller was "incoherent."


Why has Miller been treated the way he has by federal officials and the court?


That's the easiest to explain simply because Miller has got to be the most cantankerous old man anyone has ever met.


Caring for his wife in ill health for many years, was Miller 'really' a 'fraudster' and a 'tax evader' or was he taken to the cleaners by 'crooks' and now faced with a most difficult to comprehend situation where he takes the fall for the 'real' crooks behind his case situation?


Any person can easily determine the facts of the Miller federal criminal case in Lincoln, Nebraska but only 'if' they bother to investigate 'all the facts' first.


Unfortunately, in this particular case it is understood that federal officials ( Janelle Glenn IRS-CI and several others whom began their investigation in February 2001 with Dr. Miller ) were limited by federal budgetary restrictions leaving them unable to complete their investigation under U.S. Congress mandated guidelines vested in them whereas otherwise had they not been so restricted the 'true crooks' ( Joseph Severin and Garry J. Milosevich ) would 'not' have walked-away with Dr. Miller's millions in-addition to LINCOLN INVESTMENT BANK LTD. depositors' millions.


It is understood that since 2002 federal law enforcement budgets for financial crime enforcement - unrelated to terrorism - was drastically 'decreased', and that only beginning in 2009 - nearly 7-years later - will the federal law enforcement investigation budget just begin its first 'increase' for the purposes of 'non-Terrorist related financial crime'. The question remains, "Is this federal law enforcement budgetary increase too little and too late for victims once again? Unfortunately, in the Dr. Miller federal court case in Lincoln, Nebraska it appears so.


It is understood that one of the strangest situations throughout this entire federal case was that federal agents and other law enforcement agents 'never seized any of Dr. Thomas Miller's computers'.


Now, while that may sound strange to most, it really does not take much rocket-science to understand 'why' and in 'what capacity' Gary Lacy may 'really' have been at Miller's residence deleting files out-of Dr. Miller's computers only a few short weeks before federal agents showed-up and arrested Miller.


One may wonder if Gary Lacy was just talking 'smack' in his e-mail, (further above ) to James Gregory Ziegler (aka) Zig Ziegler, about having held one of the 'highest security clearances' with the U.S. National Security Agency ( NSA ). Even more curious is 'why' Zig Ziegler decided to broadcast that e-mail to 'hundreds' of financial crime victims receiving Ziegler's Restoration Project e-mail 'updates'.

Re: Securities & Exchange Commission vs. Elfindepan, Case No.: 00 CV 742.


Dear Ms. Myatt:


As you know I represent INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD.


I have received an ELFINDEPAN claim form that does not pertain to INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD., as they were never an investor in ELFINDEPAN. I have changed the form, which was a supplier of credit cards, to INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD.


The money transferred went into ELFINDEPAN S.A. offshore reserve account #D 007066910. INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD. wired / transferred $130,300.00 on July 7, 2000 to ELFINDEPAN S.A. offshore reserve account at Chase Manhattan Bank in New York.


This wire transfer was sent by GRENADA CO-OPERATIVE BANK LTD. from Granada.


The transfer did not reach the final account of INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD. at CHASE BANK in New York and, we presume, was frozen by the SEC.


These funds were from offshore and never deposited in the United States, other than being deposited into CHASE BANK for routing to the appropriate credit card account.


I have included a transfer search detail and asked for repayment of these funds into my Trust account at the above address.


Very truly yours,


Thomas O. Mulligan

BEFORE THE STATE OF WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS DIVISION OF SECURITIES


PETITION FOR ORDER


File No. S-05035 (EX)


In the Matter of:


INTERSTAR MANAGEMENT LTD., GARRY J. MILOSEVICH, and DANIEL T. TEPOEL, Respondents.


Securities, Bureau of Registration & Enforcement, has conducted an investigation in this matter pursuant to sec. 551.56, Wis. Stats, and as a result thereof alleges as follows:


1. InterStar Management Ltd. ("InterStar"), is a foreign business entity with a last known business address of P.O. Box 1245, Grand Anse, St. Georges, Grenada, West Indies;


2. Upon information and belief, Garry J. Milosevich ("Milosevich"), whose date of birth is October 1, 1945 is a male individual who at all times material hereto was an owner, officer and/or controlling person of Interstar, with a last known home address at 5920 Olney Street, Duluth, Minnesota 55807 and a last known business address at that of InterStar;


3 Upon information and belief, Daniel T. Tepoel ("Tepoel"), who was born in January 1951, is a male individual, who at all times material hereto was an owner, officer and/or controlling person of InterStar, with a last known mailing address at that of P.O. Box 248, Lake Nebagamon, Wisconsin 54849;


4 Upon information and belief, during the period of at least 1999, Milosevich and Tepoel offered and sold to at least one person in Wisconsin interests in a bank debenture trading program ("the Program") of InterStar;


5. According to the offering materials of InterStar entitled "BANK DEBENTURE TRADING PROGRAMS," received by at least one person in Wisconsin who invested in the Program, "... This investment opportunity involves the purchase and sale of Bank Debentures within the international market in controlled trading programs. The program allows for an investor to place his funds through an established program management entity working with a major trading bank. ...";


6. According to a document entitled "PRIVATE PARTY PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT" signed by at least one person in Wisconsin who invested in the Program, and by Milosevich on behalf of InterStar, at the time of the investment in 1999, "... 2. 'PARTICIPANT' agrees to deposit funds to 'INTERSTAR' in the sum of fifty thousand U.S. dollars ($50,000.00). 3. 'PARTICIPANT' understands that these funds will be transferred by 'INSTERSTAR' to an asset management group offshore for the purpose of international projects and program operations for the asset management group. 4. 'PARTICIPANT' understands that he will receive at least a 120% annual return, which can be compounded or paid monthly thereafter. ... 7. The 'PARTICIPANT' understands it will have no management power and shall not be entitled to any control of any property, affairs or business of the 'INTERSTAR' nor shall 'PARTICIPANT' have any authority or power to direct or control the 'INTERSTAR. ...";


7. Milosevich and Tepoel were indicted by a federal grand jury in the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin on April 19, 2007, relating to their activities in the offer and sale of investments in the Program of Interstar;


8. According to the indictment, referred to in Paragraph 7 above, at Count 8, Paragraphs a., b. and c, "... in fact and in truth TEPOEL actively recruited investor victims, took part in seminars discussing the supposed investments, signed investor contracts, received investor funds, deposited investor funds into a bank account within his control at Republic Bank, and used investor funds for his own benefit. ... in fact, TEPOEL was on the Board of Directors for Interstar Management Ltd. and also, along with defendant MILOSEVICH, had open a bank account in the name of Interstar Management Ltd. in Grenada, and had even utilized funds from that bank account for the purchase of his own home in Barnes, Wisconsin. .. .in fact, most of the funds deposited in TEPOEL's Rainbow Management Trust / Interstate Mortgage Account at Republic Bank during 1999 and 2000 were investor funds, and TEPOEL knew this was the case, as he was the one depositing most of the money into the account. ...";


9. Upon information and belief, investors can play a passive role in the Program with no duties and responsibilities;


10. Upon information and belief, each investor will not be involved in the day-to-day management of the Program, since there are too many investors for them to each have any meaningful input, and they do not have the expertise or experience necessary to perform its duties;


11. Since the investors will be involved in a common enterprise with the expectation of profits to be derived from the essential managerial efforts of others, the Program offered and sold by MILOSEVICH and TEPOEL are investment contracts as defined by section DFI-Sec. 1.02(6)(a), Wis. Adm. Code, and are therefore securities as defined by sec. 551.02(13), Wis. Stats.;


12. The investment contracts of the Program have never been registered for offer and sale in Wisconsin pursuant to Ch. 551, Wis. Stats.;


13. Staff of the Division of Securities have requested in writing of MILOSEVICH and TEPOEL information of their securities-related transactions with persons in Wisconsin but to date have not received the information requested; and,

Miller Released, Returns To North Platte
by, Frank Graham

April 22, 2010

After a 5-year federal prosecution of a former North Platte dentist who lost millions of investor’s dollars in an offshore banking scam, charges of mail fraud,

swindling and money laundering were dismissed against him.

U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf dismissed the charges after holding Thomas E. Miller, 79, in a Federal Medical Center psychiatric unit in Butner, N.C., for more

than two years.

Kopf dismissed the charges December 14, 2009, and released Miller to the care of his family Dec. 23, 2009. Miller returned to North Platte.

Miller was found competent to stand trial in 2007 and pleaded guilty to fraud charges and filing false tax returns in a related case in September of that year. He

could have faced 3-years imprisonment for each count and a fines of $100,000.

But while awaiting sentencing for the fraud charges in 2008, Miller had an outburst in court and was forcibly removed from the courtroom by U.S. Marshalls and

shipped to the psychiatric facility.

In June of 2008, he was found incompetent to stand trial and remained at the Bureau of Prisons psychiatric facility indefinitely.

In March of 2009, in a filing to the U.S. District Court in Lincoln, Miller wrote that he suffered from dementia and a delusional disorder. In a motion to dismiss

the federal criminal charges against him, Miller said he was receiving no beneficial treatment other than “cell therapy.”

Miller said that due to his mental illness he could not have formed the requisite intent for criminal wrongdoing and did not know the difference between right and

wrong. He also said he lacked the capacity to conform his actions to the law due to his “deteriorating mental condition.”

Miller filed numerous motions in his criminal cases both in federal court and in Lincoln County Court.

Kopf called Miller’s motions nothing but “gibberish” and that Miller was “totally incomprehensible.”

In the documents, Miller accused federal court officials of treasonous acts and violations of his civil rights. He said he intended to convene a grand jury to seek

indictments against federal officials for state and federal criminal acts.

Miller claimed to be a member of the Little Shell Pembina Band tribe of Native Americans and therefore not subject to U.S. law.

Kopf said in an order that Miller’s documents were “filled with utter nonsense.” He said he denied the motions because they were “frivolous and malicious.”

Both the prosecutor and defense attorneys, with whom Miller refuses to cooperate, agreed that a psychiatric evaluation was in order.

In his latest motion, Miller argued points of law including the statute of limitations and his mental health.

Miller wrote that he was never arrested in his life before the current charges and he believes he can’t be restored to competency. He asked the court to dismiss the

charges so he could be with his wife of 58-years, Elnora.

Miller then wrote that he was a victim of very sophisticated businessmen who were international criminals and who took advantage of small two professional dentists

like himself.

In his decision, Kopf wrote that since Miller was not competent to be sentenced, he sentenced Miller to a 3-year “provisional sentence.”

Kopf said “it was unlikely that his competence would be restored.”

“Because the sentence was provisional, I assume that I have the power to withdraw the sentence and discharge Mr. Miller,” Kopf wrote.

Kopf said, in a Bureau of Prison report, that Miller would “not post a substantial risk of bodily injury to another person or serious damage to the property of

another due to his mental disease or defect.”

Kopf said the Miller’s conviction remained in affect but the “provisional sentence was satisfied, set-aside and withdrawn. He dismissed the pending cases of mail

fraud, swindling and money laundering without prejudice.

The Crime

Miller pleaded guilty Sept. 4, 2007, in U.S. District Court to two counts of fraud and filing false tax returns.

The indictment said Miller claimed losses of $1,600,000 million on his 1998 tax return when there should have been none. In 1999, according to the indictment,

Miller reported having no pension or annuity income and a loss of $22,730 when he should have claimed $369,981 in pension or annuity income. Miller also claimed

losses in 2001 and 2002 when there should have been none, according to the indictment.

Another indictment said Miller engaged in a scheme to defraud investors of money by making false representations of high-interest certificates of deposit and then

converting investments to his own use. Miller pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Miller was investing those people's money in what turned out to be a scam.

Between Oct. 15, 1999, and July 31, 2003, Miller deposited more than $2,400,000 million in investors' money into Lincoln Investment Bank Ltd., an international

business corporation in the country of Grenada.

Miller was the director and controlled the activities of the bank, including deposits and disbursements, according to the indictment.

Miller converted at least $1,300,000 million to his personal use, the indictment said.

The indictment said Miller received a Class I banking license from the government of Grenada, then solicited investors for purported high-yield investment programs

through the offshore bank, conducted seminars and mailed solicitations to potential investors promoting offshore banking and investing. He requested investments of

$100,000.

Miller told potential investors that all monies invested with him would be placed in certificates of deposit, that their investment was risk-free and that their

principal was guaranteed, according to the indictment.

The Scheme

In early 1998, Gary Lacy, an investment banker from southern California, conducted a financial seminar in Nebraska about how to invest in offshore banks and other

such international business company entities with foreign bank accounts. Miller attended.

Lacy controlled several foreign bank accounts and offshore international business companies registered in foreign tax haven jurisdictions including Anguilla, where

he had his personal friend Nigel J.M. Francis register many of them in Grenada and Barbados.

Court records indicate Lacy was in full swing soliciting and directing U.S. citizen investor money participation into the First International Bank Of Grenada Ltd.,

a network of independent offshore bank accounts, by establishing international business companies.

Francis was executive director of First International until Aug. 11, 2000, when the Grenada government seized the bank.

By 1999, Lacy was preoccupied soliciting U.S. citizens into becoming commission-paid independent contractors, investors, and depositors like Miller to drum up

business.

Christopher Nix, a McCook dentist, recalled meeting Miller and Lacy at the 1998 seminar.

Like Miller, Nix said he invested a “substantial sum” in the scheme. Like Miller, he lost it all.

Miller, who had built up a successful dental practice in North Platte for more than 40 years, invested millions from his life savings into the offshore banks. He

began marketing the plan to his friends, patients and others as an investment.

But as the U.S. government began to investigate the scheme, it could not locate where the vast millions went because the United States has no cooperative agreements

for any legal recovery with those countries.

Court records indicate Lacy told Miller to redirect his Lincoln bank funds into the Renaissance International Bank Ltd., owned by Dennis R. Broska.

Under pressure from U.S. authorities, the Grenada government demanded a more transparent financial statement. That move caused Broska to withdraw Miller’s Lincoln

investor bank funds. Miller routed the money to a Canadian “investment club” that proved to be a fraudulent scheme.

In January 2000, Miller met Arthur Viechweg in Miami, Florida Viechweg convinced Miller to move the money into an investment bank called Interstar Management Ltd.

in St. Georges, Grenada. It was connected to the Interstar Mortgage Company in Duluth, Minnesota, which promised guaranteed interest rates at 100 percent secured

with their own bearer bonds.

Interstar was run by Joseph Severin, Garry Milosevich and Daniel T. Poel.

From Feb. 2, 2000, through April 2, 2001, Viechweg directed about $7,000,000 million of Miller’s Lincoln Investment bank funds into Interstar accounts. In return,

Miller received bearer bonds plus an Interstar statement that indicated Miller’s Lincoln bank held $21,475,000 million in already-earned, 300-percent interest

including its deposits.

But Miller never saw any of that money.

The bearer bonds proved worthless after Severin laundered the money out of Grenada and fled to the Czech Republic, where he is reportedly living in the lap of

luxury to this day.

Miller sued Severin, Milosevich and Poel but not Gary Lacy.

Miller was awarded a foreign court judgment for $21,475,000 million but it was later amended to a slightly less amount.

Miller tried to track down Severin and freeze his bank accounts to retrieve the money but Jerry A. Seales, who was investigating the case, told Miller he would have

to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to go after Severin, and that tracking the money could be difficult and expensive.

Miller was unable to afford what Seales suggested so he tried to contact his attorney again in Grenada. But the attorney had heard that Miller couldn’t afford to

pay the recovery money and never returned Miller’s calls from 2004 through 2006.

Miller again contacted Lacy for advice. Lacy introduced Miller to yet another investment bank, the First International Bank Restoration Project of Granada.

Lacy said he personally directed more than $750,000 into the bank that was operated by Gilbert Allen Ziegler, aka Van Arthur Brink, and his brother James Gregory

Ziegler.

Miller, believing Lacy, subsequently put what funds he had left into the FIBG Restoration Project. The Zieglers encouraged Miller to refer all his Lincoln bank

investors who lost money as well to contact the FIBG Restoration Project.

Some of Miller’s investors invested even more money with the Zieglers, who promised they would receive up to 300 percent interest.

The FIBG Restoration Project took in more than $6,000,000 million in 2-years but never repaid a dime, including to Miller and his bank investors.

In 2005, just a few short weeks before Miller was arrested by federal authorities in North Platte, a man named Marcus Roehmer from Arizona telephoned Lacy and told

him to make sure that Miller's computer hard-drive and any other paper record files were erased.

Lacy had set up all the computers with a special encrypted security software program.

Lacy flew to North Platte from Ontario, California, and told Miller he was there to review all of Lincoln Investment Bank’s paper records and computer hard-drive

records to see if there was a way Miller could recover his and his investors' money.

Miller, trusting Lacy, left Lacy at his residence and went off to work at his dental office. Miller discovered, after Lacy left his residence, that Lacy erased

certain Lincoln bank records, e-mails and fax files from Miller's computer hard-drive.

A few short weeks later, Miller was arrested.

The Final Chapter

Lacy was never indicted.

Severin is in Eastern Europe, having walked away with millions.

The Miller’s sold their house and moved into a condo in North Platte. Miller served nearly 3-years in federal prison, including a year in Leavenworth. In Lincoln

County District Court, Miller had judgments of $4,509.98 levied against him by Discover Bank, $13,966.88 from Capital One Bank as well as delinquent taxes of at

least $5,479.64, according to court records. Some of the taxes were for 44.9 acres of land the Millers own near Maxwell in Lincoln County.

Oddly, the federal agents never seized any of Miller’s computers.
