NELL Fraud Recovery Fund
Conversations with other leagues and the St. Petersburg police make clear that we should hold little hope that any funds will be recovered directly from our vendor.
Approximately 60% of our funds are derived from registration fees. NELL is in the rare situation of owning the facilities on 1st Street and we are responsible for all operating expenses related to the facility. Largely because of this fact, this is a potentially catastrophic loss - not just for our ability to fund the day to day operations of our league, but also for the necessary long term maintenance and other improvements we had hoped to make so our kids have a better place to play.
NELL has been able to operate for nearly 60 years not only because of the support of its families but also the support of the local community. It is in this spirit that we ask for any contribution you can make to help us keep the league thriving while we pursue all avenues to collect the money illegally withheld from NELL.
In closing, it is heartbreaking to have to bring this news, but we know the type of community we have and we will persevere through this crisis. Thank you for your support to the kids of NELL.

Default Judgment in the Ohio case is imminent. Ptak and his Jevin scam ignored the suit. He should be slapped with a 100 grand judgment. Those lawsuits need to keep coming so we can shut this creep down for good!
PARTIES 1. The Wauseon Recreation Association, Inc. ("WRA") is an Ohio non-profit corporation with its principal place of business located in Wauseon, Ohio. The WRA assists the City of Wauseon in conducting its sports recreation programs. 2. Plaintiff is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that Jevin, Inc. ("Jevin") is a Texas corporation with its principal place of business located at 1223 Ashfrod Lane, Allen, Texas 75002. Jevin is in the business of providing software and programs for the purpose of aiding in the registration of management of particular sporting events. 3. Plaintiff is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that defendant Daniel E. Ptak is, and at all relevant times herein was, the president and principal of Jevin. FACTUAL A VEREMENTS 4. In or about December 2015, Plaintiff and Defendants entered into an agreement pursuant to which Defendants agreed to provide to the WRA certain software and programs for the purpose of aiding the WRA in the registration for and management of particular sporting events in the City of Wauseon. According to the parties' agreement, parents in the City of Wauseon who desired to register their children to participate in a sports program offered by the WRA andlor the City were permitted to register their children through the internet by accessing the software and programs provided to the WRA by Defendants. At the time of registering on line, a parent was required to pay the registration fee to Defendants, which would be deposited into an account at a Merchant Bank maintained and controlled by Defendants. Defendants were then required, through the Merchant Bank, to remit the registration fee, less an applicable fee to Defendants, to the WRA' s designated bank. Pursuant to the parties' agreement, beginning in early 2016, and continuing through early 2018, parents of children in Wauseon registered their children in sports programs offered by the WRA andlor the City of Wauseon through Defendants, and paid the registration fees on-line through Defendants. Defendants, however, have failed and refused to remit to the WRA in excess of $27,843.70 in registration payments which it is required under the parties' agreement to remit to the WRA. Attached hereto and incorporated by reference is a true and accurate copy of the Bank Reconciliation provided by Defendants which establishes the amount of $27,843.70 owed by Defendants to Plaintiff. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION [Breach of Contract] 6. Plaintiff realleges the averments contained hereinabove, and restates the same as if fully rewritten herein. 7. As set forth in paragraph 5 above, in late 2015, Plaintiff and Defendants entered into an agreement pursuant to which Defendants agreed to provide to the WRA certain software and programs for the purpose of aiding the WRA in the registration for and management of particular sporting events in the City of Wauseon, in exchange for a percentage of the registration fees to be paid to Defendants. 8. Plaintiff has performed its obligations under the parties' agreement. 9. Defendants have breached the agreement by failing to remit to the WRA in excess of $27,843.70 in payments which it is required under the parties' agreement to remit to the WRA. 10. As a result of Defendants' breach of the agreement, Plaintiff has been damaged in an amount in excess of$27,843.70. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION [Theft Offense: R.C. § 2307.61] 11. Plaintiff realleges the averments contained hereinabove, and restates the same as if fully rewritten herein. 12. Defendants, with purpose to deprive Plaintiff of its registration fees, knowingly obtained and exerted control over the entirety of Plaintiffs registration fees in an amount in excess of $27,843.70 by deceit and deception. Defendants' actions constitute a "theft offense" pursuant to O.R.C. Sections 2307.61 and 2913.02. 13. Plaintiffs are entitled to liquidated damages equal to triple the amount of their damages in the amount of $83,531.1O. THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION [Intentional Misrepresentation] 14. Plaintiffrealleges the averments contained hereinabove, and restates the same as if fully rewritten herein. 15. Defendants, through Defendant Daniel Ptak, represented to Plaintiff that upon receiving registration fees on-line from parents registering their children for sports programs offered by the WRA and/or the City of Wauseon, and deducting applicable fees for handling such registrations, would remit the registration fees to Plaintiff. 16. Such representations were false. At the time Defendants made such representations, they had no intention of remitting the registration fees to Plaintiff. 17. Plaintiff was unaware of the falsity of the representations, and relied upon the truth of the representations in agreeing to allow Defendants to collect the registration fees. 18. Defendants' misrepresentations were made willfully and with malice. 19. As a result of Defend
Dan Ptak and Jevin got their a$$ handed to them in court. I creamed him in appeals: http://www.search.txcourts.gov/SearchMedia.aspx?MediaVersionID=051ef7b3-55ba-4278-a199-c29e8a7ff4de&coa=coa05&DT=Opinion&MediaID=be92054f-c1e6-49c0-b33a-3293c8665c54 https://giphy.com/gifs/fireworks-gif-13n4Hd98ewKJsQ

PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Florida Office of Financial Regulation announced the arrest of a Texas man Friday for stealing more than $37,000 of little league participation fees. Daniel Ptak stole the money through his company, Jevin Inc., an online scheduling and payment service company. OFR says Ptak accepted payments from more than 250 families in Florida for the Northeast Little League team, which is based in St. Pete. However, Ptak allegedly used the money to fund his lifestyle instead....... [/quote]

Yet another group that is owed money by Jevin contacted me just after I posted yesterday. This would be approximately the 25th group out money by my count. That brings the total of late and missing payments to well over $500,000.00. They asked for contact information for the Allen, TX police and Dallas FBI. I gave them that and information for other law enforcement agencies across the country that have been involved. How many more leagues are out money that have not contacted me???
Since my last post here two additional groups out tens of thousands and thousands respectively have come forward. That brings the total number of groups affected to around 24 and the total of late and still missing payments to well over $500,000.00 Please keep sharing this story and contacting law enforcement.

The ever charming Dan Ptak has included me in his harassment suit. He is desperate to terrorize his critics and customers into silence. He doesn't seem to appreciate his victims going to the authorities either. I talked to several leagues that were threatened by Ptak. Keep the complaints to the authorities coming!
Jevin / Dan Ptak suing the charity and the parents that he ripped off is beyond disgusting. The court papers for this sickening harassment suit are linked below: http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=11374 Please forward this to the media and lets get this scam the media coverage it deserves!

A 17th organization is reporting payment issues with Jevin. They have not received a dime of their fall registration money. Please find following an update from SkyView: SVYF Update 10/17 To the Parents of SVYF: We are aware that some of you, maybe all of you, have received a threatening letter from the attorney of Jevin. This is the mess we have been dealing with all season. We have representing legal counsel from Olsen & Hoggan Attorneys at Law in Logan to help us with this case. This threatening letter is designed to scare and panic parents into paying. Please do not respond, or pay a dime to Jevin. You as parents have done nothing wrong or committed any fraud as stated in the letter from Jevin. Nor has Sky View Youth Football. Remember we did nothing wrong, we were the victims in this. If Jevin would have paid us our money when they were supposed to we would not have had any of this mess. We are currently working with Olsen & Hoggan to respond as needed both to Jevin and to you as parents. We are trying to get a letter by tomorrow. We have talked to 4 other groups who say they are missing money. A reporter working with one of those groups told us he has uncovered 15 groups just this year who have had money issues with Jevin. We stood up to Jevin and it seems they did not like that at all. We will be strong and we will not back down. Please understand that we as a Sky View Youth Football board are aware of the concern and hassle this is to you as parents. We have tried to ensure that your kids have had a good and enjoyable season while dealing with this headache that was not brought on by anything we did. We have over 100 pages of supporting documentation we have submitted to our attorney regarding this mess. Again you as parents are not legally liable for this and that will not change no matter how many demanding letters Jevin sends out. Why does Jevin feel they are owed money? When Jevin failed to pay the amount of money that was owed to SVYF we had no other choice but to take the legal and law enforcement route. We were counseled to send out the case number to parents and have them do all they could to get their money back. Some parents were able to get money back and then paid us. Some banks and credit cards took the entire 8 weeks or longer that they had to figure out the fraudulent claim. Then Jevin turned around and paid us the full original amount of money owed to us knowing full well there were people who got their money back. Jevin then claimed to the banks, when they did their investigating, that they paid us the money. Some banks pulled the money back out and gave it to back to Jevin. This has become an accounting nightmare for all involved. The board has spent hundreds of hours to trying to sort this out. During the summer when Jevin first approached us about getting money back we told them that we would work through the accounting nightmare they caused which would require contacting all of the parents involved. After doing all of this, we thought that we were close to having it complete and giving Jevin the money that was collected by us, minus all extra fees that SVYF incurred because of not having our funds when needed which was over $6,000. Jevin turned around and added thousands of dollars in fees and other charge backs that we were unaware of and were unaccounted for. Jevin is claiming that we owe over $20,000 back to them. That is outrageous. Because of Jevin’s unwillingness to pay us when they were supposed to, the fees that where accrued and the extra time and resources that have been required on the part of the board and parents exceeds any amount owed to Jevin. But because we want to make sure everything is done legally and honestly we have turned everything over to legal counsel to determine the amount if any is owed. We will keep you informed. Thanks, SVYF Board This entry was posted in Uncategorized on October 18, 2016 by Karin Kunz.
Jevin Software has been responsible for late and missing payments totaling well over $300,000.00 for just this calendar year. 13 organizations have reported to me that Jevin owed them between 2 and 50 grand since May 2016. I was on the Garland Soccer board in 2013 and that group had numerous late payments and then a missing payment in the amount of $8,000.00. Wild stories and lawsuit threats have been flying: http://www.realscam.com/f12/jevin-inc-dan-ptak-online-sports-organization-management-software-david-arciniega-garland-soccer-chargebacks-3939/ Please join the many other groups that have filed with the Allen, TX Police and Dallas FBI. Several groups, some that have attorneys on their boards, are getting their money back through chargebacks. They have parents reference the police report number from the reports they have filed. Jevin is run out of Ptak's home and he is not likely collectable in Texas, so do consult an attorney about doing chargebacks and other options. This is now the 14th group reporting issues. When is this Jevin scam going to be shut down???
