SCHERINGER & GOWING HAVE BEEN CONVICTED ON ALL COUNTS!!!

I spoke with the prosecutors last night and they informed me that the trial is over and that EMIL SCHERINGER and DEL GOWING were convicted by a jury in U.S. District Court on ALL COUNTS. I'm told that the sentencing is scheduled for January 2010 and that both defendants are now IN CUSTODY. I'm also told that a Press Release from the U.S. Attorney's Office will be released this week. I'll try to get a copy and post it on this site.

To everyone and anyone who is still dealing with Scheringer, Gowing, or any of their many associates, please know that you are now dealing with CONVICTED FELONS. To those who have had prior dealings with this criminal organization, know that justice has been served.

If you believe that you're a victim in this matter and haven't yet spoken with the government, you should contact one of the prosecutors or email the case agent at rjcinnamo@uspis.gov as soon as possible.

I participated in this trial as a witness and am getting my information DIRECTLY from the government...........the United States government, that is. Please don't let anyone continue to tell you that the criminal case is going to be dismissed because it is now over.

As promised, here is the text from Press Release issued by the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York today. This site does not allow uploads of "pdf" files so you'll have to go the U.S. Attorney's Office website to obtain a pdf version of this document on official letterhead. A simple internet search will lead you to the site very quickly.

United States Attorney
Southern District of New York
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: U.S. ATTORNEY'S OFFICE
SEPTEMBER 22, 2009 YUSILL SCRIBNER,
REBEKAH CARMICHAEL,
JANICE OH
PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICE
(212) 637-2600

TWO FLORIDA MEN FOUND GUILTY IN MANHATTAN FEDERAL COURT
OF DECADE-LONG ADVANCE-FEE SCHEME THAT NETTED
MORE THAN $20 MILLION

PREET BHARARA, the United States Attorney for the
Southern District of New York, and RONALD J. VERROCHIO, the
Inspector-in-Charge of the New York Office of the United States
Postal Inspection Service ("USPIS") announced that EMIL
SCHERINGER and DELMER C. GOWING III were found guilty late
yesterday of defrauding victims through an advance-fee scheme
after a three-week jury trial before United States District Judge
GEORGE B. DANIELS.

According to the Superseding Indictment and evidence
presented at trial:

Beginning in at least 1999, SCHERINGER held himself out
to people throughout the United States and abroad as an owner and
officer of three companies: Adlex Bent, Annuit Coeptis, and
Supreme Oil and Energy Company. SCHERINGER told victims that he
and his companies owned "contracts" in Nigeria and other
countries worth hundreds of millions, and in some cases billions,
of dollars. SCHERINGER described these contracts to victims in
various ways. Typically, SCHERING described them as oil
contracts that had already been performed, which he had purchased
for pennies on the dollar, or which had been given to SCHERINGER
by the Nigerian government. SCHERINGER also told victims that
his access to these assets was blocked by various legal
impediments both abroad and in the United States that required
money to resolve. Year after year, SCHERINGER persuaded hundreds
of victims to give him money -- anywhere from a few hundred
dollars to millions of dollars -- by falsely representing to them
that the money would be used to remove the legal impediments and
promising to pay them back in just a few days with double or even

-2-

triple the money they had given him. SCHERINGER also operated a
network of paid recruiters all over the United States who helped
him lure victims into the fraud.
GOWING, a lawyer who specialized in securities
litigation, joined the conspiracy in or about 2004, after
representing SCHERINGER in a lawsuit brought by one of the fraud
victims. GOWING soon began to defraud people himself through
similar fraudulent misrepresentations, posing as the General
Counsel and President of Supreme Oil, and targeting his own law
clients, among other victims. Both SCHERINGER and GOWING
continued to defraud victims for years after they were arrested
and released on bail, in 2005 and 2006, respectively, by failing
to disclose that they were both charged in a criminal case, or
claiming that the case was unrelated to the transactions they
were peddling and would soon be dismissed.

SCHERINGER, 57, of Deerfield Beach, Florida, and
GOWING, 66, of Boynton Beach, Florida, were each found guilty of
one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and face an
additional penalty at sentencing because the jury found that they
continued to participate in the conspiracy after their initial
arrests and release on bail. SCHERINGER was also found guilty of
nine counts of wire fraud, and one count of failure to appear.

SCHERINGER faces a maximum potential sentence on all of
the charges of 220 years in prison, as well as a maximum fine of
the greater of $250,000 or twice the gross pecuniary gain or loss
from the offense, on each of the eleven counts of conviction.

GOWING faces a maximum potential sentence on the conspiracy
charge of 30 years in prison and a maximum fine of the greater of
$250,000 or twice the gross pecuniary gain or loss from the
offense. Both defendants also face forfeiture of up to $10
million.

SCHERINGER and GOWING are scheduled to be sentenced on
January 14 2010, by Judge DANIELS.

Mr. BHARARA praised the USPIS for its outstanding work
on the case.

This case is being prosecuted by the Office's Major
Crimes Unit. Assistant United States Attorneys SEETHA
RAMACHANDRAN and LEE RENZIN are in charge of the prosecution.

I was one of the victims- suckers, that unfortunately got involved. I was at the trial or some of it, I did not testify and no one there knew who I was, I just observed. Emil took money from anyone,, even a single lady with a disabled son. Took her last dollars and she lost her house. One family had a severely injured son...didn't matter, he'd tell them anything, promise riches beyond anything they had ever had (they lost their house because of Emil). There wasn't anyone he wouldn't try to take money from and nothing he wouldn't say. Lot of sad stories at the trial and many people lost their houses, farms, businesses and spouses, went deep into debt, took loans to finance Emil's lies and many now face the IRS with huge debts or retirement without any money. The biggest question is...where is all of that money now? Most of it was sent overseas in money grams or western unions or money transfers from bank to bank. It is somewhere and someone is enjoying it...maybe Emil and the other attorney, Gowing, have a plan once they get out in a few years. Actually, many of the names of people money was sent to were revealed in the trial as evidence. If someone had any money now or were so inclined could they find these people? The FBI, who prosecuted this case didn't appear interested in where the money was or try to recover it, or return it to the 'investors', but just to get Emil, or that is the feeling that I got at the trial or I missed that part because, I did not see the whole trial.

I never invested directly but through one of his 'associates'. I admit, I was taken in, got greedy, thought this is the once in a life time opportunity that won't come again. I even read on the internet the previous legal problems he had but they were all conveniently explained away and that the IRS was 'out to get Emil'. Well that was true and they did and fortunately they did or how many others would be scammed?

below is the press release regarding the trial. for the victims, you should be able to use this information. the IRS has allowed victims of fraud such as this to write off their loss or part of it, contact your accountant and/or attorney for details.

A friend of mine is currently being scammed in India. An individual who I will not name (Mr V), has been in contact with my friend for over 3 years. He supposedly has $25m to invest in my friend's company originating from Emil Scheringer.

For 3 years my friend has been telling me about this deal on and off. I didn't realise the extent to which my friend has been taken in by Mr V. Only now have I found out that my friend has been sending money to Nigeria to help with paperwork. I do not know the total amount he has sent but I estimate it to be thousands of dollars.

The money is always coming tomorrow and when tomorrow comes another form or complication arises.

I have also heard the Dick Cheney story and was initially impressed. Until I googled Emil Scheringer and found this board.

I'll keep you updated...

Dishvuljag:

If the person to whom you are referring is VULIMIRI JAGDISH, you are wise to suspicious of him. He is an unindicted co-conspirator of Scheringer and Gowing and is probably looking over his shoulder every time he steps outside. If he's not, he should be!!!

Where oh where has my Dr. J gone, oh where, oh where can he be??? With Emil locked up, and Delmer locked down, how much longer will Jagdish be free???

What is disgusting is that the authorities permitted Scheringer et al. to continue to scam people after 2005. How did these crooks get away with this for so long? By permitting the perpetrators to remain on the street the authorities subjected others to be victimized. Also, the victims should do everything in their power to get the US Attorney to recover their money. Are these people any less important than those victimized by Madoff?

interesting how someone's post is 'edited' -- was something offensively written, or obscene? I'd like to think that all that is written is being posted; otherwise why would we bother
