Vancouver - On April 7, 2017, the B.C. Securities Commission applied to the Supreme Court of British Columbia for an order appointing Grant Thornton Limited as a Receiver, to distribute to investors, certain funds of Bossteam E-Commerce Inc., Yan Zhu (a.k.a. Rachel Zhu), and Guan Qiang Zhang. The Court granted the order and Grant Thornton Limited will now administer a claims process to return funds to investors.
The Commission issued freeze orders against certain bank accounts that collectively held USD $9,725,899 and CAD $293,233. That money remains frozen. The BCSC also registered a charge on land Zhu owned and has collected approximately $122,810 from the sale of that land.
In August 2014, a Commission panel found that Bossteam, Zhu, and Zhang committed fraud, illegally distributed securities, and withheld information from BCSC investigators. In June 2015, the Panel issued sanctions against the respondents, including monetary orders and prohibitions against participating in the capital markets.
As the Receiver, Grant Thornton Limited will take possession of the frozen funds, receive and decide investors' claims, and return money to investors.
The Commission encourages investors who lost money to Bossteam, Zhu, and Zhang to submit their Proof of Claim to Grant Thornton Limited. Information on how to submit a Proof of Claim, as well as a copy of the Court order and other relevant documents, are available on the website: www.bossteamclaims.com.
