P.S.I. CAPITAL, INC.

  1. P.S.l. Capital, Inc. (hereinafter P.S.l.) acquired thirty-three Bella Collina lots from a foreclosing bank.
  2. The Conspirator controlled POA immediately served false bills for approximately $3,600,000 in unpaid assessments, including for delinquent club dues, followed by suit in the Lake County, Florida Circuit Court.
  3. The Conspirators offered to end the harassment represented by the lawsuit ifCSBS would surrender its choice lots to DCS.
  4. The conspirators dismissed the suit in consideration for the transfer of thirty lots to DCS, the payment of $125,000 to Ryan’s Trust Account, and the execution of an agreement with a strict confidentiality clause.
  5. The settlement deprived the POA of any benefit from the lawsuit and permitted the conspirators to embezzle funds owed to the POA.
  6. On information and belief, the POA suffered damages of at least $500,000 in annual assessments, interest, late fees and costs from the Conspirators’ use of the POA to ••write-off’ these assessments, and the Conspirators were enriched by the receipt of unencumbered lots.
  7. On December 20, 2013, Ryan filed suit against the owner of P.S.I., Paul R. Ashe (hereinafter Ashe) for use of an irrigation well, which was permitted by the Governing documents but prohibited by the illegal amendments filed by the Conspirators acting in the guise of the POA.
  8. The Conspirators instructed the guard gate to deny the Ashe access to the community to which lot owners were entitled in violation of Florida Homeowners Association Act and deprived him of access to the Golf Club even though he was a fully paid member.
  9. Ryan, as agent for the Conspirators, directly threatened Ashe with financial ruin from continued litigation and judgments related to the special assessment for dues related to the club mandate. 312. Greene, as agent for the Conspirators, by notice to all lot owners in his status as President of the POA, threatened the Ashe with the expired build compulsion.
  10. The Conspirators maliciously deprived Ashe of the right to vote for POA board members or to become a candidate for the POA board, depriving Ashe of his lawful participation in the governance of their community.
  11. The previously quoted letter of Michael J. Ryan dated August 25, 2014 instructed the Aegis and Golf Club book keepers as follows:”IMPORTANT-RE P.S.I
    After reviewing the ledger of P.S.I., I realize that when DCS funded the purchase of the Lots, I disbursed the full amount due the POA ($75,527.23) and only $46,611.64 which was only part of the $146,611.64 due the Club. When we receive the last $100,000 from P.S.I., it should have all gone to the Club-but, I split it between the Club (66%) and the POA (34%)-MY BAD. I can void the Check #1584 and reissue to The Club (See Ledger).”
  12. Thus, the POA sued for about $3,000,000 in delinquent assessments and received about $40,000 and the Conspirators received 30 lots originally worth about $18,000, cleared of all encumbrances, for nothing.

  7. In December of2012, the Conspirator controlled POA dismissed all lawsuits against Sun Trust with prejudice.
