Receiver files default judgements against Canadian net-winners
Clawback litigation was filed against Zeek Reward’s top net-winners in Canada back in early November.

Filed on the 18th of December are eight motions for entry of default, naming the following Canadian clawback litigation defendants:
- Catherine Parker ($179,656.05)

- 0937702 B.C. LTD (shell company owned by Eugene Veinotte) ($62,457.23)
- Mei-Ping Liang ($50,863.61)
Note that the amounts in brackets is the amount each defendant stole from Zeek Rewards victims, not the amount being requested via default judgement.
Twenty-six defendants in total have been named in Canadian clawback litigation thus far.
A voluntary dismissals against Don Fitz-Ritson ($121,773.22 ) was filed alongside the eight motions for default, indicating that Fitz-Ritson has negotiated a settlement with the Receivership.
At least three other defendants have filed responses to the litigation. The status of the clawback litigation against the other 14 named defendants is unknown at the time of publication.
