RASCO: THE WITNESS: Ready to go? I'm ready. You represent who again? MR. RASCO: MR. CUSICK: I represent Frank Preve. Counsel, before you begin, I'm just going to put an objection on the record. On behalf of Emess Capital, as to not being permitted time in this deposition to depose Mr. Rothstein, I object to the counsel for the trustee's violation of the protocol orders, an order permitting Emess to depose Mr. Rothstein at this deposition by trying to shut us out of the deposition. THE COURT REPORTER: hearing you, sir. MR. CUSICK: I'm having trouble Maybe you move closer. We object to counsel for the trustee's violation of the various protocol orders in trying to shut us out of the deposition by refusing us time to depose Mr. Rothstein, by failing to timely send over his exhibits, in accordance with the protocol orders. On the same basis, we move to strike the United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2354 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 testimony taken by the Trustee and also the testimony taken by TD Bank, based upon the inability to cross-examine Mr. Rothstein as to that testimony, also the failure to abide by the court order by sending over exhibits timely. We reserve the right to depose Mr. Rothstein at a future date, and we reserve all rights against the Trustee and TD Bank. We further object on behalf of all other entities which are represented by the Law Firm of Kluger Kaplan to the extent that the Trustee served notices of taking deposition that were filed in those cases prior to those entities being served with the complaint; and we move to strike those notices of taking deposition. Thank you very much. your time. MR. LICHTMAN: Let the record reflect in Sorry to eat into the underlying Rothstein, Rosenfeldt & Adler case pending before Judge Cohn, as well as in the protocol orders, neither of them afforded Emess Capital any entitlement whatsoever to take or participate in the questioning of United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2355 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Mr. Rothstein. It was a tightly negotiated order; and, indeed, Emess came late to the table, and as we have told Emess, and numerous other parties, we are hopeful that there will be another round of discrete depositions that don't focus on what we call "the big case" or the other two limited depositions that are commencing today. So I think that the objections are all completely frivolous and baseless and in bad faith. MR. CUSICK: Also let the record reflect that prior to the first date of the deposition, the Court entered an order permitting Emess to depose Mr. Rothstein and that we were not privy to any discussions concerning the protocols that the depositions and -COURT REPORTER: MR. SCHLESIGNER: this during lunch time. MR. LICHTMAN: record later. Whereupon, SCOTT W. ROTHSTEIN, acknowledged having been duly sworn to tell the truth We can put this on the I can't hear you, sir. Guys, we can do all Let's get going. United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2356 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 BY MR. RASCO: Q Mr. Rothstein, my name is Ray Rasco. I and testified upon his oath as follows: THE WITNESS: MR. NURIK: documents? MR. RASCO: exhibits. No. I only have very limited I do. Counsel, did you send me the I'll bring them up to you -- well, actually, you know what, I'll bring them to you right now. I only have a few, and I'm I apologize, probably not going to use them. Mr. Nurik. Here you go. Thank you. MR. NURIK: MR. RASCO: And I'm not going to even get into those just yet. FURTHER DIRECT EXAMINATION represent Frank Preve. I, again, state for the record that we don't feel that this is sufficient time to fully depose you based on the amount of contact between you and Frank Preve by email, 7,000 emails, and the seriousness of the statements you have been making in your testimony regarding Mr. Preve over the past eight days. I just want to try and, with the limited time that I have, clarify some of the issues that we United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2357 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 A Q A discussed on Monday when I first spoke with you about Mr. Preve. The first thing that I want to ask is, you said yesterday in your testimony that one of the things that you learned in this massive crime was that you would keep your co-conspirators in the dark as to who the other co-conspirators were. Does that apply to Mr. Preve? To a certain extent. Can you explain that a little bit more? People on the -- what I'll call "outer circle," people who were doing very specific things, were isolated from other co-conspirators. I'll give you an example. very limited purpose for me. Frank Preve had a I didn't explain to do him what we were doing; I told him what needed to be done. He did it. I did not ever sit down with Frank and tell him Deb knows what's going on. I did not sit down with Frank and tell him David Boden knows what's going on. That's not the way it worked. Okay. With other people, a guy like Mr. Preve, okay, there was need for him to know about certain people; but there was also need, because I knew he was also having conversations with other people and I didn't now -- you United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2358 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 know, it's not like I knew this man for two decade, okay, I tried to limit, as best as I could, given all the vagaries of a crime of this size, people's knowledge to what they needed to know. Q I didn't always succeed. You Well, would that apply to Mr. Preve? tried to limit his knowledge; is that fair to say? A On certain issues, yes; and the unique thing about Mr. Preve is, is his knowledge grew over time. You can tell by his emails. If read his email traffic, you know it's clear that there was a point in time where he really didn't know what was going on; and there's a point in time where he is clearly committing fraud after fraud after fraud. Q And that's based on some of the indicators that you discussed with me on Monday, from his email traffic, as well as certain conversations, for example, that you had with Frank Preve? A You'd have to be more specific with me. I can't remember every word I said on Monday. sit and read the transcript. Q Okay. I'd have to Well, let me ask you this, then: The point at which he began to commit fraud, in your words just this morning, when was that? A You'd have to lay all the email traffic out in front of me, and I would be able to give you an estimate United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2359 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Q A way? A I don't recall. Again, I'd have to see all of the date. Q Would it go back to December of 2008 or would it be later, if you recall? A Q By December of 2008, he was involved. By December of 2008 he was involved in what the email traffic. Q Okay. What was his role? You said yesterday that you tried to limit each co-conspirator's role in the crime; can you explain what you limited Frank's role to be? A Q A Q I'll have to look at all the email traffic. Okay. Okay. He was in command of a major feeder fund. Okay. Was he aware of any other co-conspirators? A To a limited extent, yes. Would you like me to explain? Yes, please. Okay. Let's use -- let's use Jack Simony, as an example. Okay. Jack's involvement was simply, whether he knew there was a fraud going on or not, to lie to our upcoming investor. Frank knew we needed Jack to lie. I United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2360 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 questions. knew we needed Jack to lie, and Jack knew he had to lie. That's all Jack, to my knowledge, knew. He may have had other conversations with Frank about what was really going on; I don't know. That's what he was limited to. If you read emails about -- between me and Frank about John Harris, you'll see there are multiple emails from Frank telling me to get control of John, that he was creating problems. So Frank knew that John was doing things for me that were illegal. We had discussed it. The extent of it, I didn't get into it anymore than I needed to. The auditor, Tracy Weintraub, is probably one of the best examples. pocket. Frank knew that Tracy was in my Frank, knowing that, prepared phony balance-sheet audit statements for me, instructed me to scribble on them to make them look like they were real -- and this is all documented in email, okay -- and then to forward them to Tracy. There were other times when Tracy sent in Frank would tell me, in email traffic, that we can't answer these questions, that I needed to rein Tracy in, that I needed to get control of him. Those are examples of control of certain people, control of the flow of information. Q Well, just going to John Harris, I don't United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2361 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 off. Q A A balance? Q Mr. Preve emailed John Harris stating -recall seeing any emails with respect to Mr. Preve asking to you rein John Harris in; but I do recall the email that we discussed on Monday, which is the email where he discussed where there was a $20-million trust balance in -- for Banyan at Gibraltar Bank. Do you recall that discussion? Who indicated there was a $20-million trust asking for a line of credit requests, enclosing documents, and saying that this was based on a $21-million trust account that they had, trust account, or trust proceeds that they had at Gibraltar that -A I recall something -- I didn't mean to cut you Sorry. -- that they were seeking a line of credit? I remember them seeking a line of credit. I remember there being an issue about the trust balance. I remember Frank being aware, through Mr. Harris, that the money was not there. I don't recall the other specifics of it. You'd have to show me the email traffic around that event. Q Do you recall emailing Mr. Preve and asking him not to further seek a line of credit at Gibraltar United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2362 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 A because John Harris was asking you for settlement documentation? A It's certainly possible. I don't have a specific recollection of it, but it sounds like something I would do. Q Okay. Moving to Tracy Weintraub, there is the There is packet of emails that I just handed Mr. Nurik. one that's dated January 15th, 2009, 11:05 a.m., and it's Bate number FP 112310-0143388/1. Your email to him -- it begins with your email to him stating: Why is Tracy Weintraub asking for I banking data from me, re: Banyan, for your audit. cannot give him anything from my records, nada, zero, zippo. My law firm's records have nothing to do Banyan and audited financials, other than causing a massive explosion that might -- et cetera, et cetera. And that is -That's not bad. It says "burn my wee-wee." It's -- actually, it's not only funny, but it's also clear that Frank and I know that: Okay, we want to have as little information floating around as possible because the more information that floats, the more information that is passed between parties, the more likely we will have a detection. Q If Frank knew that, then why does he have over United Reporting, Inc.

A You really have to ask your client, because if 7,000 emails between you and him? that, there is -- he is -A Well, I understand what you're asking me. MR. SCHERER: THE WITNESS: MR. SCHERER: Object to form. I'm sorry? I just put an objection to I mean, if Frank knew you recall my earlier testimony over the last eight days, I was amazed at the level of inculpatory things that Frank would write to me on a regular basis, I mean, right down to the end where he said to me, if he doesn't hear from me, we're going to assume we're on our own. Do you expect us to just sit around and wait to be incarcerated, talking about money missing, talking about the fact that he's given me $25 million without any paper; I mean, one illegal activity after another. You are going to have to ask him why there is so much email traffic. Q Well, I mean, why would he put so much into email and seek so much information from you and seek so much information from third parties, if he was in on the fraud? A You would have to ask him that question; I would be guessing. United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2364 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 mean? A Him, George, other deals, yes, he seemed, to A Q And if he knew how much money you were making and if he was in on the fraud, why didn't he make so much money? Why didn't he have the same financial results that you had? A I was always -MR. SCHERER: Object to form. I was under the impression, and this just my opinion, that he was making plenty of money. BY MR. RASCO: Q Making plenty of money through Banyan, you me, to be very well financially situated, and he benefited from our crime. Q Okay. Going back to the email that we were just discussing about Tracy Weintraub, the -- Frank responds to that email to January 15th, 2009, at 11:00 a.m.: The only thing he should be asking is for you to confirm our outstanding receivables, just like last year. A Q A Q A Yes. And is that what you did? Do you want me to explain that? Yes, I would like you to explain that, please. Okay. The year before, Berenfeld Spritzer, United Reporting, Inc.

I went ahead and met with Tracy, explained to him what I needed to explain to him relative to the fact that we're not turning over these documents; that if he wants to be in this game, he needs to go ahead and simply do as little as possible, okay, and get what we needed out; that if he couldn't do the Banyan audit, we would find someone else to do it. He agreed to do it. through Tracy, tried to get a real significant amount of detailed data from us. Frank knew and I knew that that was a big So when Frank is here saying, "just like last year," okay, he's telling me: Tracy should be adhering to the deal we established previously, which is a simple confirmation, in letter form, just like last year. That's it, nothing more. Q And was that a conversation that you had only with Tracy or that you later indicated to Frank that you had that conversation with Tracy or entered into that deal with Tracy? A about it.

A I told him that on more than one occasion: my law firm's business, personal business and the Banyan business, yes. Q Okay. And are you suggesting that Frank at any time submitted false financials to Tracy? A Q A Q He did. Can you explain that? You'd have to show me all the records. Are you saying that they audited -- the -- any of Frank's financial information that he sent to Tracy, some of that was fraudulent? A Q A Q A To my knowledge, yes. With Frank's awareness? To my knowledge, yes. And what do you base that knowledge on? You'd have to show me all the financial data, and I could show it to you. I can give you a good example: He knew there wasn't money in a lot of those accounts, and he was saying that the money existed, and he wanted Tracy to say the money existed. Tracy knew the money didn't exist because he was my accountant. Q He knew in January of 2009 there wasn't money United Reporting, Inc.

Based on those emails that we discussed on Monday where there were certain mistakes? A Q Emails and many conversations with him. Okay. If you turn further, there's another email on that subject that I handed you, or to Mr. Nurik. It's dated January 26, 2009, the subject is "Level 3 verification." It's an emailed, on the bottom, from Michael Szafranski to Ari Glass, indicating that he had met with you, and then indicating that trust account 5104 contained $178,857. Frank responds to that email saying, Mike, is it 187,000, or 17,000,800 or 178 million. Do you see that? I do. MR.

Yes. Okay. Okay. I do see that, yes, sir. And are you indicating -- are you saying that that was an indicator that Mr. Preve believed that the money was not in the trust accounts? A Without seeing email traffic on either side of I don't know if this, I can't tell you for certain. Mike wrote that. On occasion Mike would write dollars in thousands, dollars in millions. At this point in time, in January 26, 2009, I don't know what Frank was thinking by reading that. I United Reporting, Inc.

Q So without that, I really can't tell you. Okay. But you agree that Frank's financial statements, to the extent that he produced financial statements to you, were accurate, generally? A Q I can't say one way or the other. Did you rely on him for accurate financial information? A No. I relied on him to tell me what we were You'll see supposed to have in the accounts, minimum. he sends me a lot of emails, in fact you handed me one, where he's telling me what the minimum balance is. There is no investment that I've ever heard of -- maybe you have and you can tell me what it was -- where the investor tells the person handling all the money how much money he should have. Generally you ask me what the balance is. tell what the balance is, and if I'm wrong, you pull your investment. Q That's not how we worked. I If there are occasions where the trust balances were not reflecting what Mr. Preve thought they were -- well, first of all, he was telling you what he thought they were based on the deals that you were United Reporting, Inc.

A Based on the amount of money he was sending me -- you have got to remember, there came a long period of time where there really was no deal paperwork at all; he was simply relying on that little deal blurb and how much money he was sending me and how much, based upon that little blurb, I was sending him back. a lot of confusion. There was also confusion because he would regularly send me money. I would send him payments, and Then he would say, So there was then he would send me half back. just tell me where you apply. Then he would come back and say, tell me what old deals we're going to apply this to or should I have -- great example: Should I have Centurion fund this again, or is that just going to create too much of a headache trying to reverify the plaintiff receiving the money? Q A emails -Q morning? A Q No, I didn't see it here. Okay. Didn't you indicate to Mr. Preve Okay. Not in the ones that I handed you this Are you referring to a specific email there? No, not -- that email is in the prior that -- well, first of all, he was accounting for, on United Reporting, Inc.

A You'd have to ask him what he was doing. He would send me what he thought needed to be in the accounts, and I would instruct Irene to correct it. On many occasions he would actually write directly to Irene and say these balances are off, fix it. Q If there were instances where there were balances that were less than the minimum requirement, do you recall if you indicated to Mr. Preve that that was as a result of you not having -- that was as a result of you putting the money in the wrong Banyan trust account? A Q I did that once or twice. I remember that. And if the balances sometimes weren't accurate, did you indicate to Mr. Preve that could be because you had not paid experts or you had not taken your attorney's fees out? A On certain occasions I did. You have to look at the timing. You have to look at specific emails, look at the timing, and then look at the emails around it to determine the full extent of Mr. Preve's knowledge at the time because at a point in time when he's fully aware of what's going on. There's a lot of Ponzi-speak United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2372 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 example. there.

The email that I just showed you regarding the 178 million, you testified on Monday about an email that indicated that there was a mistake of a billion dollars or about a billion dollars; do you recall that email? A Q A Q I recall those emails. This is not that email, correct? No. The second email in the packet that I just It's gave you is dated November 18th, 2008, 11:06 a.m. from -- the bottom is from Frank to you, and it's subject matter is "stuff." A Q Okay.

You indicate that you're going to provide him the balances in Commerce Bank when you get back to the office this afternoon? A Q Yes, the fake balance numbers, correct.

It's my, also, humorous response to him. Well, you're indicating, now, that Frank knew that there was a fake website and that he wanted you to create a fake website for him? A I'll answer that with a question: Can you think of any reason why he would put the word "online" in quotes if we were really going online? Q I'm not sure why he wrote "online" in quotes, but I do know that he was seeking verification of trust balances from you, not just through this email, but through hundreds of emails. My question is: Was he aware that this -- that TD Bank/Commerce Bank website was a fake website? A Q A Q A Q A Q Yes. How do you know? I told him. You told him in a conversation or by email? In a conversation. Was anybody else present? Never. Do you know if he ever discussed that fact with Szafranski? A I have no idea one way or the other. I doubt United Reporting, Inc.

That's referring to as the shortage? A Without seeing the email, I don't want to I would be completely guessing. Do you think it might be shortage in render a guess. Q Okay. funding; in other words, funding from sources like the Von Allmen Group or the hedge funds? A No. I think the shortage -- and I'm speculating, but I think the shortage he's referring to is, is how much money do we need to put into the trust accounts so that we could pay out everything we were supposed to pay out, had this all been real.

A I actually -- and I would have to see the email traffic; but I actually don't recall using the word "shortage" to describe money that hadn't been funded by the hedge funds. "they haven't funded." shortage in funding. "Shortage," the way Frank is writing it to me is: what is the shortage in the accounts, how much have you stolen, what's missing. But, again, I'm just guessing. Normally I would just say I wouldn't say there's a United Reporting, Inc.

You indicated that email was a false exculpation of Frank, not of George, right? Q Okay. You used, on various occasions, with Frank and other parties, starting with the April 2009 Bar issue, the fact that the hedge funds weren't funding at previous levels -A Q Correct. -- you used that as an excuse to not pay out to Banyan or to other investors; is that fair? A Q Correct. Okay. And you used that again with the Von Allmen group and Barry Bekkedam's group? A I don't recall that. You'd have to show me that email traffic. Q Okay. I will show you this email. This is the Composite Exhibit 206, which I marked on Monday. A All right. Are you talking about the October 31st, 2009, email -Q A Q A Q Yes. -- from me to George? Correct, from you to George. Yes. We have talked about this extensively. I have a few more questions about We have. United Reporting, Inc.

Q A Well, you did indicate. Hang on. It would clearly be an exculpation of Frank -It --- and George, if he needed it. Okay. It would clearly be a false exculpation? A Q Yes, a false exculpation. Okay. You testified on Monday the latter part of the time about being a liar, thief and scum bag; that was true, in your mind at the time? A Q Yes. Okay. And the part about you either going to jail or dying, that was true or accurate in your mind at the time, as well, right? A Q Yes. Okay. And the -- that email was written, if you recall, in response to an email or various emails from George Levin trying to, quote, unquote, bail you out, trying to help you resolve the issues that you were in, without him fully understanding what was going on? A In part, yes. United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2381 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Q And so the part about him asking you -- about you telling him, don't try to bail me out of this, that was accurate in your mind, as well, wasn't it? You already knew that it would be impossible for him to bail you? A I don't how what was possible or not possible. You'd have to define "bail" me out. If he could get access to a lot of money, he could bail out the financial part; but he certainly wasn't going to bail me out of the fact that I had committed a giant crime. Q So the only part of that email that is untrue is the part about the exculpation; you and George did nothing wrong? A The only part in here that I know for certain Frank did nothing wrong. That is that is false is: false. It is all together possible that to a great extent, George did, in fact, do nothing wrong. Q You've testified that this was the first time in your life that -- or at least the several past years, that you were coming clean, that you were being honest with yourself; is that fair, in this time period? A At this moment? I don't think at this moment I think I was trying I was coming clean with myself. United Reporting, Inc.

Until I made the decision to step foot on a plane and leave a non-extradition country, knowing that I was coming back to go to prison, I don't think until I made that ultimate decision that I had fully reconciled with myself that it was time to completely change the person that I am, to change my life and to do the right thing. Q And this was the only email that you recall that you were falsely exculpating Frank; is that right? A I don't recall. You'd have to show me the email traffic. I have sent so many emails, I need to see the traffic to tell you one way or the other. Q Did you -- do you recall falsely exculpating anybody else? A We looked at emails the other day. I don't want to speculate when we have definitive email traffic to establish one way or the other. So I would like to see the emails and answer based upon emails, instead of guessing. Q Just your independent recollection, anybody else that you were trying to falsely exonerate? A I don't recall. I believe there were, but the names are escaping me right at this moment. Q Okay. And to your recollection now, as you United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2383 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Stu. Q A email. Q A Okay. I think -- again, it makes no sense to me to Was that through email? I'm -- yes, I think there was -- there was an sit here, was there anything else that you may have done to falsely exculpate Frank or anybody else? A Oh, wait. I tried -- I falsely exculpated try to have me guess when we have email traffic that establishes definitively one way or the other. Q I'm only asking you because I haven't seen any email traffic that establishes you sending any other emails that would falsely exculpate anybody else. A Q On, no, I did. Okay. And in doing so, when you did do so, do you recall if it was a simple statement like this one with respect to Frank, or was it more detailed? A Q I would be guessing. Okay. And you were aware, by that time, that there were thousands of emails between you and Mr. Preve that indicated that he may have known something was amiss? A Q You're asking me my opinion? Yes.

Q Then why would you think that such a simple statement would be any help to Frank? A Fortunately for you, you've never had to be in When a a situation where your mind is as mine was. multi-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme is collapsing around you,you're picturing destroying your family and all the people that you love. dying in prison. And coming back to potentially The emotional and actually physical stress that your body goes through at the time is not something that I can describe in words. Why I was doing exactly what I was doing in those final days, I would have to sit and really read all these emails again, carefully. something good -Q A Okay. -- that I perceived as good. The truth is, now, as I sit here today, after having made the decision to come clean and admit everything I've done wrong, I don't think that trying to falsely exculpate those people was the right thing. What I should have done was picked up the phone called them, called Mr. Preve and the others that I was trying to do United Reporting, Inc.

Q Are you suggesting that Frank in any way I -- I just -- I couldn't bring I spoke to very limited people while I created fake documents in the Ponzi scheme? A Q A Yes. Can you explain that?

Throughout 2009 we created false documents together. Q You actually sat with Mr. Preve to create false documents together?

You'd have to take a look through the email traffic, but definitely verbally and definitely on paper in some format. Q Whether it was handwritten or by email or on the document itself, you're not clear? A There were times when Frank and I would sit down and scribble on documents that we had, notes, that type of thing. We were sitting together. If I was sitting in the office and we were doing something nefarious, I don't think he needed to send me an email to confirm what we just discussed.

He had direct input into As a matter of fact, the contents of the audit letter. if you look at the email traffic, one of the things that is completely off the charts with regard to a, quote, unquote, independent audit of books and records, is that Tracy, pursuant to my request, forwarded a copy -provided a copy of the audit letter to Frank Preve for his comments before completing it, which is a big no-no as I understand it in the financial audit world. Q But what did Frank do that was wrong, as far as providing Tracy comments? A He had added false information, corrected information that would have led potential investors to believe that there was a fraud, cleaned it up so that we wouldn't get in trouble and gave it back to Tracy.

I helped them formulate certain information that they provided that was false to Greenspoon Marder so that they could get them to write an opinion letter.

A I remember at least one or two other firms that they went to, but you have got to remember something: Look at those opinion letters. They, for starters, contain nothing about the payment irregularities that were going on.

Did you tell Frank that because that was occurring and because certain bills were due for Banyan and the Levins, that you were going to bring your own money from New York and pay them out of that money?

First I just want to pick up on a few points. area. Then I want to go into a completely new You said in response to questions this morning that you were amazed that people would write so many incriminating things in emails, correct? A Q Yes. All right. Was it your conscious desire to try to avoid writing incriminating things in emails? United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2459 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 A It was and it wasn't. There were times when I was very careful not to put incriminating things in emails, and looking back on it, there were times when I wrote things I probably shouldn't have written. Q Would it be fair to say that you were conscious of the fact you were trying to leave as few trails as possible of your illegal acts? A Q At times I was and at times I wasn't. The subject of tax fraud has come up at least two or three times in the course of this deposition; and each time, you've said that you committed fraud the wrong way because, I guess, you're suggesting that you paid more taxes than you should have? A Q I did. Okay. Did you include in your taxes all of the cash that you were pulling out in cash and using in your various assorted and sundry matters? A Not by listing it as cash, but I more than accounted for it in the income that I -- that I declared. Q Okay. So you didn't specifically indicate the amount of cash on your tax return that you were -- that you were using or that you had? A I didn't say it was cash. I -- it was more United Reporting, Inc.

What I did was, so you know, Mr. Rabin, was, I wanted to avoid an audit; or if I got an audit, I wanted them to, as they were going through it, determine that, wait a second, this guy doesn't owe any taxes, if anything we owe him money. So I instructed Tracy Weintraub to inflate my income by tens of millions of dollars, which he did. Q So, essentially, what you're saying is you paid more taxes, but you lied about the manner in which you did it? A Yeah. I'm not -- by no means, Mr. Rabin, I'm I'm not saying I I'm just pointing out not trying to excuse my conduct. didn't commit fraud on the IRS. the fact that I kind of did it in a backwards fashion. Q Another theme that you've developed through the course of this deposition in your answers is that you told the people that were involved in your Ponzi scheme just what you needed to tell them in order to get them to do the things that you needed them to do; is that fair to say? MR. SCHERER: Objection. Form. Certain people, I told them just what they Certain people, I probably told them It just needed to know. too little; and certain people I told too much.

A I told Mr. Adler -- to the best of my No, it was honest. Okay. And what -- it was honest, what you varied. BY MR. RABIN: Q Okay. I want to break these down into groups and try and get your best recollection as to what you told different people in order to engage them in your scheme. And I want to start first with the people in Okay? your law firm. A Q Sure. All right. Russell Adler, you generally described the fact that he helped you round up other lawyers to provide false verifications that they were either sending business or cases to your firm, correct? A Q That is one of the things that he did, yes. And what was the -- what was it that you told him was the reason why you needed those lawyers? First of all, was it honest or a lie and what recollection, I told him that we had the hedge funds coming in town and that in order to convince them to continue to do business with us, that I needed these people to lie about the number of cases we had.

SCHERER: BY MR. RABIN: Q I don't want you to answer a question you Objection to form. Q So, essentially, what you're saying is, you honestly told him aspects of the scheme or he already knew aspects of the scheme and you told him the honest purpose for which you were lining up these lawyers? that what you're saying? MR. SCHERER: Object to form. Is I don't understand the question but you don't understand. Is your -- what you just summarized or just testified to is that you told Adler that you needed these lawyers to provide false information? A I told Adler -- yes, I told Adler I needed these lawyers to lie. Q Okay. David Boden, generally what was David Boden's role? A He was my general counsel, and he ran a sub-Ponzi scheme, as we've come to call it. Q All right. And what was the lie that you told or the honest information that you gave David Boden in United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2463 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 A order to let him get involved in your scheme? MR. SCHERER: Object to form. I would have to see all the email traffic with him to break that down for you, Mr. Rabin. There were things that I told him that were true about the scheme. There were things that I told There were things him that were false about the scheme. he told me that were true about his scheme and things that he told me that were false about his scheme. There was -- David and I were engaged in so much lying back and forth that without seeing that email traffic, there's just no way I can pinpoint that for you. Q A Q So -It's impossible. Well, you wouldn't put lies in an email, though, would you? A Q A Of course I did. You did? I think I've been saying that for now eight days and a couple of hours. Q So without looking at the emails, is it your testimony that you have no independent recollection of anything that you told David Boden regarding what you needed to say to get him to help you? United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2464 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 A It's not that I don't have -- I mean, I can sit here and start -- try to think about it, but giving me the emails would refresh my recollection and make it a lot easier on all of us. Q And that also has been a common theme throughout the course of the eight days or nine days; but what I'm asking you for today is your best recollection. Because, as you can appreciate, there may not be email trails as to what you told people in your conversations with them. So I'm asking you what was your best recollection or what is your best recollection regarding what you told Boden. MR. NURIK: Are we talking about in emails or in conversations? BY MR. RABIN: Q A No. Conversations. In conversations, I -- let me do it by way of giving you some examples, and maybe you can ask me questions as follow-up that will get you to where you're trying to go. At one point in time I had to explain to David Boden how to use the fake TD website. I took him in, and I showed him how to utilize it, how to log in, how to avoid going to the wrong places that would actually take him to a real TD website. United Reporting, Inc.

RABIN: Q A Q Did you -Prior to that a -Just let me ask a follow-up question, and then you can continue. A Q Sure, sure. Can you tell him what the purpose of the fake TD Bank website was when you showed him that? A I -- he knew what it was. That's why he wanted to use the fake TD website; he was going to use it to induce his investors. Q A Okay. Go ahead. By the same token, early on, before he knew there was a Ponzi scheme, I told him that these were legitimate investments, so he had heard both. It was much like that with many people who originally thought that what we were doing was legitimate; and as they came to detect red flags, realized that there were crimes going on, and they, themselves, made the decision to get involved, based upon requests that I made of -- for them to do various things. I told him in conversations to be very careful what he wrote to me, that I didn't know whether Curtis or Bill Corte -- and this is a specific conversation, because I remember thinking at some point in time that United Reporting, Inc.

And I remember telling him, be careful what you write to me -- this was towards the end, let's say from June, July, until the implosion -- be very careful when he was writing to me because I was afraid that someone might be reading my emails. I was going to try to increase the security level on our email system and the encryption. I told him to be very careful what he told Pearson, Richard Pearson. to worry about Pearson.

I mean, I had a lot of He told me that I didn't need I consulted at length with him the fraud I was committing with Tracy Weintraub, because David was a very, very bright corporate-paper man.

I had conversations with him about what to show people and what not to show people and how best to sell the product. I gave him extensive one-on-one--- let's call them primers on how to sell product. I mean, David was a confidant. that I told him. Q Okay. Let me move on to yesterday, I believe There's a lot it was, you identified Adelita Cabello as a Stuart Rosenfeldt's paralegal and the person that you had act the part of a Florida Bar lawyer? A Q A Q Correct. How many times did she do that? Once. Okay. And was that the only time you had somebody pose as a Florida Bar lawyer? A Q To the best of my recollection. Okay. And what was it you told Ms. Cabello in order to get her to do that? A I gave her some specific questions that they I briefed her on how to answer them, were going to ask. and I told her that if they asked anything that she United Reporting, Inc.

Q asked you. Mr. Rothstein, that wasn't the question I My question was: What did you tell her was the reason for her -A Q A Q A Q I'm sorry. -- to do that? I misheard you. Okay. I didn't tell her the reason. And you're saying that she didn't ask why she needed to do that? A She may have, but a lot of my people were extremely loyal, and they were, unfortunately, used to being asked to do things that were not appropriate. My opinion is, is that that's the way she perceived this and she wanted to be a good, quote, unquote, soldier, and she just did it. Q A Q Was she given any cash? She was not. Okay. Marybeth Feiss was somebody that was involved in drafting fake documents? A Q That's correct. All right. You have already said that with United Reporting, Inc.

A Yeah. Sometimes in the middle of the scheme, when Debra was getting very concerned about continuing it -- this was in 2009 sometime -- I told Debra that I had to continue it, that the mob was involved. a lie. Q Okay. What was the lie that you told her in That was order for her to start doing it, then? A Q I didn't tell her any lie to start doing it. She just -- did she just basically, willingly engage in a crime with you without any preconceived misconceptions? A Actually, one of the things you're going to see through -- in the entire thing, this applies to Debra and many others, is that there is a very slow, apparently smooth glide into the criminal activity. starts with little things and it grows.

What did you tell Marybeth Feiss? A I don't recall telling her anything. I think Deb filled her in. Q So you don't recall any specific conversations with her before she started preparing fake documents? A Other than asking her to hand me documents or I think Deb make sure I get documents on time, no. filled her in on all that. Q A Q A Q Did she leave your firm? For a period of time, yes. Before everything blew up? Yes. And then she came back, I think. When she left your firm, do you know where she United Reporting, Inc.

She had told me that she was leaving to go take care of her children, but Debra told me that she was leaving because she was concerned about what was going on with all these documents. Q Were you concerned when she left that she might go to the authorities with the information that she had? A Q Yes. Same question for Melissa Lewis, she left for a period of time, correct? A Q Melissa had no idea what was going on. Okay. You don't -- you know she was best friends with Villegas, right? A Q Yes. And Villegas knew everything that was going on, pretty much? A Q Debra knew a lot, yes. You really can't sit here and say what Villegas told Lewis, could you? A No, but I was never under the impression, in my opinion, that Melissa knew anything. Q Okay. And with respect to Debra Villegas, you said that she started out just doing illegal things; but at some point in time, she kind of like was -- became reluctant.

Yes. going, about the mob, correct? A She became very concerned. Sometime in 2009 she became concerned, and I made up the story about my life being in danger. Q Did you know that her -- at Ms. Villegas' sentencing, that she told the judge that the reason she got involved in this from start to finish was because of your story about the mob? A Q That would actually be incorrect. So she would have lied, then, if she said Steve Goldstein, you identified him as the lawyer who posed as a Judge Marra? A Q Scott Goldstein. I'm sorry.

A Q A Q A Q Marra. A I don't recall. Susan Black? No. Susan Black was an appellate court judge. Right. I'm sorry, Mr. Rabin, state circuit court. Okay. So this Scott Goldstein posed as Judge Do you know who else he posed as? Whoever the real male judge was in one of the Morse cases. Q A Q A Okay. Sorry. Did you tell Scott -- is something funny? Actually, yes. I just remembered Ted Morse And what -- what did you -- saying to me when I said he posed as this other judge, Ted actually said to me at the time that he played -- he had played the circuit judge first; and when he played Judge Marra, Ted actually said to me, you need to get someone else to play one of the other judges because their voices sound the same and my father said something to me about it.

And what did you tell Scott Goldstein in order to get him to do that? A I told Scott Goldstein that Ted did not want his father involved in anymore litigation and that Ted was going to ultimately fund settlements to get -- he was going to funnel money through us and get back to Ed to make Ed think he won these things so this could all be done with, and this was part and parcel of that plan and we were assisting Ted to do this.

They were actually witnesses to each other's payments, but other than that, I don't think so. Q All right. Wayne Koppel was another lawyer who falsely claimed to -- according to you, had falsely claimed to refer cases to your firm, correct? A My recollection is vague as to whether or not United Reporting, Inc.

I seem to believe that he was the one who actually attended the meetings with the hedge fund guys, so yes. Q All right. And what did you tell him in order to get him to play that role? A I didn't have to lie to him at all. I believe that Doug Bates and Russ Adler handled all that. Q So you never made any false statements to him in order to get him to play that role in your scheme? A As I sit here today, other than telling him what I needed him to say, I recall very little about talking to him about anything having to do with this. Russ Adler and Doug Bates handled that. Q All right. Howard Herskowitz was another lawyer that referred -- according to you, falsely claimed to refer significant cases to you? A Not just according to me, it was according to the people that he made the statements to. Q do that? A I didn't say a word to him. I never talked to What did you say to him in order to get him to the man until I got there and he started lying for me. Q All right. And what you -- are you saying you had to tell him nothing in order to get him to do that? A I had Russ Adler handle it. Russ Adler told United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2499 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 him exactly what lies he needed to tell, and when he showed up there, he told all the lies. Q So you had no conversations with him in terms of what he was supposed to do; is that your testimony? A I think, if you recall my prior testimony, when I first walked in there, Mr. Herskowitz is the one who said, it's nice to finally meet you, almost giving me a coronary. So, no, I had no prior conversations with him about what he needed to do. That was handled by, to the best of my knowledge, Mr. Adler. Q All right. Steve Rossi was another lawyer that falsely claimed to refer cases, according your testimony, correct? A Q Yes. All right. Did you have the relationship with him or somebody else? A Q Mr. Adler. Okay. So did you have any conversations with him about why he was to falsely verify that he sent cases to your firm? A Q A Q Through Mr. Adler. Were you witness to the conversations? One of them. Tell me about that one conversation. United Reporting, Inc. (954) 525- 2221 21a897ab-f9ff-49aa-8308-21d465585ba5 Page 2500 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 need. Q A Q And I assume that was cash? It was. I assume there are no witnesses to it, other A I told Mr. Adler to call Steve Rossi and let him know that I would do whatever I could to help him with his political aspirations in exchange for assisting us, and I was present during that conversation. Q All right. Tracy Weintraub, you have talked about him a number of times as preparing -- you talked about him on a number of cases preparing false financial statements? A Q Yes. What is it that you told him why you need the false financial statements? A I told him here's $75,000; this is what I than you and Mr. Weintraub? A The only person that may be able to verify My that was a gentleman who brought me that cash. recollection is he brought me that cash when I was ready to take it up to him.

Here's my issue: I just MR. LICHTMAN: MR. SCHERER: now have realized that we're anticipating closing this record for my case; and then you're going to start with Pearson, and it will a separate record. MR. LICHTMAN: Levinson. MR. SCHERER: When you start with When we start with Pearson, you intend to have that as a separate record in your adversary? MR. LICHTMAN: MR. SCHERER: Correct. I'm going to request that when you get to Pearson, that this transcript -- my record stays open, because he's a defendant in this my case so that I'm going to urge the Court that whatever you do in that case is a part of my record. MR. LICHTMAN: I don't have any problem with that, but I will not have time for anybody to be questioning on the time allotted that we have, except for me and for Mr. Pearson's counsel.

NURIK: Well -I'm going to ask for five minutes at some time, and the basis for that is because people have not complied with the Court's order, as I articulated yesterday, in providing their exhibits to the parties in advance of this deposition in whole, being that Mr. Rothstein is a party and I represent him, and counsel was supposed to receive it, I was denied the opportunity to have it and Mr. Rothstein was denied the opportunity to see it, and as such, I may have some clean-up questions. I will be brief, and in the process Mr. Rothstein may be reviewing some of the documents that were supposed to have been previously provided to him. And as such, I'm going to ask that the record stay open and I have the opportunity for five minutes. MR. RABIN: if we stop -MR. NURIK: The problem, Sam, is I'm not I'm going to give it to you in the position to do that because he's still reviewing them. United Reporting, Inc.

So, unfortunately, I'm going to ask that at some point, since the record will remain open, that I find five minutes to do that, and I will be brief. MR. RABIN: don't know. Well, you know, again, I The agreement is the agreement. I don't know about keeping the record open past the time limit set by the judge. Mr. Lichtman may be able to speak to that better than I can. MR. LICHTMAN: When do you think you would be best suited to ask those question? MR. NURIK: Ideally, by the end of the day today, but certainly tomorrow morning, no later than tomorrow morning. I'm not going to have much of a chance beyond that. So I'll try -- endeavor to try to do it by the end of the day. MR. LICHTMAN: I'm going to guess -- I don't know -- that most people don't have an interest in hearing the Levinson testimony. Many people may have some interest in hearing United Reporting, Inc.

If that's the case, I'm happy to yield five minutes when we begin tomorrow at 8:30 so you can start and ask those questions and I can go into Pearson. MR. NURIK: MR. RABIN: Okay. Thank you. Okay. All right. MR. HERTZBERG: On behalf of Platinum and Centurion, this is Gabriel Hertzberg.

You were asking me about witnesses -Q A Q Tracy Weintraub? -- to money going to Weintraub. Well, the last question I recall: Did anybody witness any of the payment of the 75,000? A And my answer is someone witnessed me receiving the money and taking it up to Mr. Weintraub. Q A Did anybody witness the payment? I don't believe this person was standing there when I -- we only got as far as the door. Q A Q Other -So no. Other than the money that you claim that you gave Mr. Weintraub, was there any other conversation about what you wanted him to do or why? A Q A Q A As to what I wanted him to do? Yes. Extensive conversation. Okay. And the why? The only why that I recall giving him, without seeing the email traffic, is so that he could keep my business and keep the business of Banyan and continue to live well, a nice life. MR.

Did Ken Jenne ever propose to you starting a business similar to Kroll's? A Q Yes. And what he -- what -- explain that to us, what he was purposing in that. A We were hiring a lot of retired law enforcement at the time, former ABT agents, FBI agents, IRS agents, and he wanted to put together something to rival Kroll. Q A And did that go beyond any discussions? Other than him and I hiring people to kind of get it started up, no. Q And did Ken Jenne have any role in your illegal activities? A Q No, sir. Other than, perhaps, that one occasion where he carried boxes -- the Epstein boxes into your office that people are claiming that he did? A No, sir. MR. RABIN: He had no involvement. I'm going to cede the balance of my time to Mr. Rasco. United Reporting, Inc.

RASCO: Q Based on any witnesses that you can point to Withdraw my objection. that are aware that Mr. Preve knew of the fraud? A Q A Q A Q Mr. Szafranski. Beyond Mr. Szafranski? Mr. Boden, Mr. Rosenfeldt. Is that it? And me. Okay. Do you remember the email we discussed on Monday where you indicated that, Frank, you were ending it; and he suggested that that was not the solution and he urged you to come back and told you not to run. He told you that he had been through something, like, analogous before and asked you to come back. Do you remember that? Yes, I do. United Reporting, Inc.

And you indicated earlier today that Q If he was criminally involved, why would he do there were literally hundreds of incriminating emails between -- written by Frank; is that right? A Q A I think there were thousands. Okay. I haven't stopped to count them, but there seemed to be an awful lot. Q If he was aware and involved in the crime, why would he write so many emails that were incriminating? ALL PRESENT: Objection to form. I told Frank on more than one occasion that I thought he was going a little crazy with certain things he was putting in the emails. It never stopped him. You'd have to ask him why he was doing it. It seemed to me like he had some sort of self-destructive mechanism because he put a lot of very bad stuff in emails. BY MR. RASCO: Q Earlier in your testimony you thought Frank was a very smart person. A Q Extremely. If he was so smart, why would he be writing so United Reporting, Inc.

One thing I have learned over the course of this crime, and since coming back, is that I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with a lot of extremely, extremely bright people who did some very, very stupid things during the commission of a lot of very bad crimes. BY MR. RASCO: Q You met Frank in August of 2007, Object to form. approximately, right? A Q A I don't recall when I met him. Was it mid to late 2007, let's say? Again, I don't recall the date I met him. All you have got to do is look and see when I started to doing my very first business with George Levin and go back 30 to 60 days. frame. I would have met him in that time It makes no sense to have We can establish it. me guess to it. Q years? A before. I knew that he worked for George many years I knew that he left and came back to work for Are you aware that he had known George for 30 George, yes. United Reporting, Inc.

A You know, I have, unfortunately, learned that the word "friend" has a very interesting meaning in criminal circles. So, yeah, I believed that he was truly a friend of George's; but the more I examine everything, the more I come to realize he probably took tremendous advantage of George. Q And are you aware that he, himself, invested his own money and his family's money, not just his immediate family's money? A Q Yes. And you knew that he knew that George stood to lose hundreds of millions of dollars if this was a fraud? A Yes, but his ultimate role was the same as all of ours, just the like Morses and other people, that we all hoped to get our money out. The criminals, the people that are involved, always hope to be able to be the ones recouping and, in fact, gaining by the crime. You don't -- even though you know it could explode, you don't necessarily plan on it. MR. RASCO: Okay. Thank you. No further United Reporting, Inc.
