zeekrewardsFollowing the regulatory shutdown of Zeek Rewards, Darryle Douglas was classified an insider and pursued by the court-appointed Receiver.

After years of ignoring proceedings against him and then attempting to launch a new scam, Douglas was finally slapped with contempt proceedings.

On December 10, 2015, Judge Mullen found Douglas in contempt of court. A warrant for Douglas’ arrest was issued, however up until now we’ve had no updates as to Douglas’ status.

A filing in Douglas’ contempt case dated March 3rd, reveals Douglas was arrested for civil contempt in Riverside, California, on March 2nd, 2016.

In December Judge Mullen ordered Douglas’ arrest until he ‘agrees to comply in full with the Court’s Order dated September 15, 2015.

The September 2015 order in question saw Douglas required to

  • return any copies of the Zeek Rewards database he has in his possession
  • appear for a deposition by the Receiver and
  • produce all financial records from November 1, 2011 to the present for his personal and business-related accounts (prior to being deposed)

Presumably Douglas will remain incarcerated until the above orders are carried out.

Update 30th April 2016 – As per the Zeek Receiver’s first quarter report for 2016, Douglas has or is about to be released.

The Receiver has subpoenaed NewBridge bank for Douglas’ financial records, with the report stating ‘a deposition of Mr. Douglas was scheduled to take place during the second quarter of 2016‘.
