Rather than front up to court and fight a lost cause, DFRF Enterprises defendant Jeffrey Feldman has settled. Feldman, a previously convicted felon, was one of five DFRF Enterprises sued by the SEC back in 2015. He was the front man for the company’s non-existent Ponzi insurance claims.
Jeffrey Feldman’s DFRF Enterprises trial has been scheduled for March 2020. The SEC’s initial lawsuit cited Feldman, a convicted felon, as DFRF Enterprises’ fake insurance guy.
Daniel Filho might have dodged prison time but the SEC aren’t letting their civil case go. In a September 25th Motion for Default Judgement, the SEC seek to hold Filho accountable for $10.2 million dollars.
The SEC has filed for default judgement against DFRF Enterprises defendants Daniel Filho, Wanderley Dalman, Gaspar Jesus, Eduardo Da Silva and Romildo Da Cunha. The SEC’s default motions follow the denial of motions to dismiss by Dalman, Jesus and Da Silva. The trio’s lawyers have also withdrawn from the case, following months of non-communication.
In June 2018 Daniel Filho was declared incompetent to stand trial. A year later Filho appears to have made a miraculous recovery. He’s communicating with DFRF Enterprises victims and appears to be planning a comeback.
