Now all 7 LLCs appeared to have vanished, or more likely never materialized?
Securities and Exchange Commission filings reveal Oklahoma Venture Capital Fund LLC (OVCF) reported investing a total of $9,733,750 as of November 13, 2006. View SEC Filing
Oak Hills Capital Company (or OHCC, the CAPCO) claimed OVCF invested $75,348,000* in 7 LLC's prior to November 1, 2006, the grandfather clause "post cutoff" date.
* $75,348,000 consist of $54,362,910 through Oak Hills Capital Company, the CAPCO; and $20,985,090 invested "in conjuction." View 2006 Rural Small Business claims
The 7 LLCs were:
|All-State Equipment||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
|Carter County Car Company||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
|Eagle Builders||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
|New Century Medical Equipment||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
|Oklahoma Agri-Builder||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
|Sentry Storage.||Shared mini storage unit, Yukon OK|
OHCC received $22,604,400 in tax credits for this claim, which failed multiple qualifying requirements.
Now after 3 years and a considerable effort to learn what happened with the 7 LLCs, no trace of any one of the 7 has turned up. Like all other claims there were numerous other reasons to have questioned the claim. The question of whether the $9,733,750 was actually invested in legitimate ventures, remains suspect and unanswered.
Additional questions about legitimate qualifications are raised by the following. All 7 LLC's were registered long after the March 16, 2006, grandfather "pre-cutoff" date. All 7 LLCs are listed at the same address, a mini-storage unit (not Sentry) in Yukon. A ploy to claim the more lucrative 30% rural tax credits. All 7 LLC's along with the investing entity OVCF and CAPCO, OHCC, can be traced back to Donald L. Dillingham. The money was funneled back to the origin after picking nearly $23 million in tax credits.
To illustrate why the false claim was $75,348,000, remember this fraud is a scheme used to give "so called investors" $2 in tax credits for each $1 they invest. Subtracting the out of pocket cost (excluding fees and commissions) from the $22,604,400 in tax credits leaves a tad over $22.2 million. Twice the $11.1 million invested. Also, remember this offers an instant 2 for 1 payout, refuting state officials' claims this is a legitimate investment. Off the record CAPCOs have been reported as telling investors they are not concerned about picking good investments. The money is in the tax credits. This is proven out by the record of failures, and how quickly the failures occur.
Make no mistake this is nothing like a legitimate investment. This operates like a rigged slot machine that pays off every time, and pays off immediately. This has nothing to do with any loophole, and everything to do with state officials allowing false claims to go unchallenged and miss-using secrecy to hide the scheme.
Like Altus Ventures and Scissortail, Oak Hills is not a one pony show. Stay in tune, more is coming soon.
Comment: It is reasonable to assume that if they had $75 million they could have afforded to at least rent some space that had windows, heat and air conditioning. Maybe that explains the disappearance? 7 businesses couped up in a metal shed for 3 years with no windows, heat or A/C. It would not be unreasonable to expect those conditions to have resulted in everyone killing each other off?
