Click4Support, Ubertechsupport, and Click4Support Tech Services, and their affiliated businesses, including iSourceUSA, LLC, Click4Support, LLC, Spanning Source, LLC, and Innovazion, Inc., are currently in receivership pursuant to a Court Order issued by the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on November 10, 2015 and amended November 24, 2015, in the case Federal Trade Commission et al. v. Click4Support, LLC et al., Civil Action No. 15-5777.
On December 8, 2017, the Court issued an Order and determined the following:
1. Pennsylvania law determines the status of the assets in the receivership estate.
2. Consistent with the Court’s factual findings stated in the Court’s November 10, 2015 Memorandum (Docket No. 40), the Court finds that the assets in the receivership estate were acquired from consumer victims through fraud and other improper means.
3. In order to prevent unjust enrichment, the Court finds that the assets in the receivership estate are subject to constructive trust for consumer victims and should therefore be used for the benefit of consumer victims.
A copy of the Court Order is available here.
On September 24, 2019, the Court issued an Order and determined the following:
1. The Receiver may file the 2018 and 2019 necessary return(s) for the Receivership in accordance with all state and federal regulations. Thereafter, the Receiver may file a Form 56 notifying the IRS upon closure of the Receivership.
2. The Receiver and her professionals are to maintain in storage the Records in her and her retained professionals' possession, for a period of twenty-four (24) months following entry of the Closing Order. After the period of twenty-four (24) months, and following twenty (20) days' notice to counsel of record, in the absence of any objection(s) communicated to the Receiver and/or the Court, the Receiver seeks authorization to destroy and dispose of the Records. The Court will resolve any objections, pending which no destruction or disposal of Records is permitted.
3. The Receiver, with the assistance of her professionals, is authorized and empowered to complete any remaining administrative task(s) that may arise in connection with the Receivership proceeding and to take all actions necessary to implement the relief granted in this Order provided however, that no further fee petitions will be filed in connection with the Receivership.
4. A reserve shall be maintained in the amount of $7,500.00 from which the Receiver may pay the costs and fees associated with any closing tasks, and/or any potential tax liability. The Receiver shall account for all costs and fees within her final accounting of the Receivership Estate, and shall remit any remaining funds upon completion of the case activities to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for purposes of consumer redress.
5. The Receiver may make a final distribution to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) of the sums remaining in the Receivership Accounts less (a) those accounted for in the Receiver's final fee application and (b) the $7,500.00 reserve.
6. The Court shall retain jurisdiction with respect to all matters arising from or related to implementation of this Order.
