Website for Timber Fraud Victims.

Mississippi Secretary of State Gibbit Hosemann issued the following statement. 

A website created by a court-appointed receiver and aimed at providing information to defrauded investors in the multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme involving Arthur Lamar Adams and Madison Timber Properties, LLC, is now accessible at

Potential investors also received letters this week from attorney Alysson L. Mills of Fishman Haygood, LLP, who was appointed receiver of Adams’ and Madison Timber’s estates by a federal court in June 2018, and from the Securities Division of the Secretary of State’s Office.  The Secretary of State’s Office is working cooperatively with Receiver Mills to solicit additional information from investors to aid in a timely recovery of funds and assets for the benefit of defrauded investors.
“One of the most important things investors can do right now is preserve financial records and documents.  This includes agreements, letters, e-mails, or checks, or anything else in writing relating to an investment in Madison Timber,” Secretary Hosemann said. “Our collective goal with Receiver Mills is to identify losses and gather assets of Mr. Adams and Madison Timber.” 
The new website includes responses to frequently asked questions from investors, contact information, and official Receiver Reports.  The first Receiver Report is due to the federal court on August 21, 2018
Court filings from the related federal criminal case United States v. Adams, No. 3:18-cr-00088 (S.D. Miss.) and federal civil case Securities and Exchange Commission vs. Adams, et al., No. 3:18-cv-00252 (S.D. Miss.) are also available on the website.  Receiver Mills’ work is independent from these cases.

Damn - good ole Hibbert, having been kicked in the are by the Judge, is still working hard to seem relevant in this process. Didn't do a damn thing before the frauds exposure, but now is pushing hard to get in front of the band and pretend to be leading the parade. Should be able to do so since he has had so much experience in doing so in each and everything this narcissistic ego-driven pol has done since moving into the Ladner building.

Goobert Hoseman is nothing but a beanpole yellowhammer, useless.

I wish I would of been able to scam some of them. All it takes is a outward love for Ole Miss and trading stories about Van Morrison concerts.

Attn 4:02 Adams never enrolled at Ole Miss. He used stolen money to join elite charity clubs and went from there. As far as I know, he finished high school and not much more. It's a shame he didn't choose Ms. State, but I think his wife had some connections there.

Since Qbert is behind it, is the site called "Y'all Timber Scam"?

I saw a pair of Louis Vuitton black velvet slippers listed on eBay. I wonder if Mike Billings is liquidating.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
