United States v. $541,395.06 United States Currency, et al

Case Number: 10-CV-6555CJS
(Assets of Ashvin Zaveri)

The United States District Court recently ordered forfeiture of approximately $9 million to the United States in the Ashvin Zaveri fraud matter.  These funds will be distributed to the victims of the fraud through the remission process, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section (AFMLS).  If you already submitted a petition for remission to the United States Attorney, no further action is required on your part unless you are contacted directly by AFMLS.  You will be notified by AFMLS regarding the final decision on your petition. 

The United States Attorney has now completed the forfeiture phase of the case and AFMLS has assumed jurisdiction of the remission phase.  The remission process will take at least additional 180 days due to administrative and regulatory requirements.

The Department of Justice has also published a guide to the petition for remission or mitigation process that you may find helpful. That pamphlet can be accessed directly from the following link:
