The timeline is a wonderful thing to put things in perspective. It certainly has been helpful in connecting the dots in the bizarre activities of Genex Capital with respect to SSQ.
SSQ Looks Like It's in Hartford but Smells Like It's In Vancouver
SSQ, the acronym of a purported company "Structured Settlement Quotes", (1) soliciting American consumers to sell existing structured settlements, (2) solely using a Hartford CT address (with no record of ever being registered with the CT secretary of state), may very well be simply a mailbox at the Hartford Regus office Center and the axis of power that claims in press releases to have done 11,000 transactions and over $250 million in funding, is operated out of Vancouver, BC, in Canada.
The structuredsettlement-quotes(dot) com website and several other websites created or at one time all or partly owned by Andrew Cravenho and/or Settlement Quotes, LLC, a Connecticut registered company and were acquired by Genex and/or associatde individuals or entities in or about November 2011
SSQ's purported spokesman "Brad Jones", barely comes up "on the grid" except for press releases [ e.g. October 22, 2012 Download ZoomInfo Cached Page Jeremy Biberdorf SSQ]. In May 2012, an officer of a NASP member settlement purchaser, claimed that he had a voice recording of someone who purported to be 'Brad Jones' who responded to an inquiry to freedom1stfunding.com (click link for my contemporaneous report from May 4, 2012), a domain associated with a mirror like parasitic redirect scheme to webuypayments.net. the executive related to me that the voice sounded just like an executive office of Genex Capital. Indeed, the Genex COO, Boris Drubetsky, revealed a card here Download Boris drubetsky on Prezi 2-21-2012, although the voice according to our source was that of Roger Proctor. [There is discoverable evidence that may tie David Springer to that domain as well. Springer has been mired in litigation over the alleged webuypayments.net redirect scheme since 2011.]
Boris Drubetsky Hosted SSQ Website and Staging Server in Canada
I have previously established that Boris Drubetsky, the Chief Operating Officer of Genex Capital and Genex Strategies hosted the SSQ website and its staging server in Canada.
"Regus and Karla Lim"
According to our sources on the ground, the Hartford address was a mailbox forwarding deal that was originally set up with Regus on or about January 10, 2012 on an autorenew. Mail, if any, is apparently forwarded weekly. The original contract was signed by a Gian Karla Limcangco, then having an email address of email@example.com, according to our source. Ms. Limcangco Freiro, from Vancouver BC, is listed as a Sales Adminstrative Assistant at Genex Capital from November 2011- May 2012 on her LinkedIn profile. Download Http___ca.linkedin Gian Karla Limcangco SSQ Regus Hartford signee 1-10-2012 [despite having terminate her employment with Genex Capital more than 2 years ago, Ms. Limcangco is STIll listed as a contact on the Genex Capital for the Maryland Better Business Bureau, along with Roger Proctor]
Setting up such a Regus mail box apparently requires no TAX ID or social security number accordng to our sources.
Between April 2012 and September 2012 the name "Brad Jones" was associated with the Regus Hartford mailbox, according to our source.
On September 4, 2012, despite being informed that I knew Boris Drubetsky hosted structured settlemeent-quotes(dot)com and its test server , in his bizarre response to a request to remove inaccurate information on the SSQ website, Boris Drubetsky, from a Genex Capital email referred me to "Brad Jones". "Brad Jones" did have an email address and despite not comng up on the grid, "Brad Jones" responded to an email. Note that the domain whois record shows Boris Drubetsky's Genex Capital email address.
The Boris Drubetsky Credit Card Bread Crumb
Our source revealed that on November 7, 2012 that the credit card of Boris Drubetsky was used to pay for the Hartford mail drop (in the name of "Settlement Quotes Inc." ) being held out on the SSQ website and its press releases as the sole address of SSQ.
Our sources revealed that on March 27, 2013 a credit card of Boris Drubetsky was used to pay for the Regus drop box being held out on the SSQ website and press releases as its sole address.
"Brad Jones", Cassandra Byrne and Roger Proctor's $2MM condo
Our source states that one contact for the account is listed as "Brad Jones Vancouver BC" and that call was received from "Cassandra Byrne" with a change of mailing address for SSQ's correspondence to 1011West Cordova Street Vancouver BC V6C 2G8. The address corresponds to the Fairmont Pacific Rim, which includes both hotel and condos,including the condo on the 35th floor believed to be Roger Proctor's. A picture captioned with "view from my room" appeared on Roger Proctor's wide open Facebook page at the time i obtained this information in April 2013 and the landmarks are consistent with the view of Coal Harbour, from the Fairmont Pacific Rim obtained from other sources.
SSQ's Altered BBB to Hide Proctor and Drubetsky Involvement in SSQ
I have previously established that a May 2012 screenshot of the Connecticut Better Business Bureau report for SSQ displayed the names of Roger Proctor of Genex Capital as the sales contact and Boris Drubetsky as the Principal Download SSQ CT BBB w Genex and SSQ LLC ref. Shortly after i revealed this published information, it was changed.
Boris Drubetsky Plays Dumb
As previously reported, on September 4, 2012, when confronted with the knowledge of his hosting SSQ and asked to remove inaccurate information, Drubetsky denied in writing, any Genex connection to structuredsettlement-quotes (dot) com in an email and referred me to "Brad Jones"
Enter Jeremy Biberdorf
"Brad Jones" may have only been an "employee"of SSQ from 2013 to present according to the Manta .com profile recently updated by, uh "Brad Jones". On Manta Brad Jones lists the email of Jeremy@structuredsettlement-quotes(dot)com. Jeremy Biberdorf is listed as an SEO manager for Structured Settlements LLC, which claims a local Hartford CT address. That entity is similarly not shown as registered with the Connnecticut Secretary of State in an April 9, 2013 CONCORD search.
Furthermore, an October 22, 2012 SSQ press release concerning JG Wentworth's sale the name Jeremy Biberdorf is associated with the company, then referred to as Structured Settlement Quotes Inc. That purported entity is one of 3 names associated with SSQ in la very short period of time. Structured Settlement Quotes Inc. as we have previously established through an online search of the Connecticut CONCORD system, has also not been registered wth the Connecticut Secretary of State during the relevant time period
Link to Attorney Dick Risk's Son
On March 1, 2013, Jeremy Biberdorf posted a settlement purchaser listing for SSQ on Robert Risk's website. The listing on Risk's website shows the Hartford CT mail drop. He also listed quotemeaprice(dot)com on March 4, 2013 Download QMAP SSQ Biberdorf on structuredsettlements dot org, although the QMAP listing was later removed.
Genex Capital CEO Roger Proctor's Hilarious Selfie
In late November 2013, "Brad Jones" and Roger Proctor put on a "dog and pony show" in a press release announcing that Assured Annuity, a Genex company that acts as a conduit for individual investors to buy structured settlement payment rights, had become a certified funder with SSQ.
On July 21, 2014 the LinkedIn page for Structured Settlements LLC bears the logo, website URL and Regus Hartford office center address associated with purported entity "Structured Settlement Quotes".The Hartford address is lssued as its "headquarters". Of important note is that the description refers to Settlement Quotes, LLC, Andrew Cravenho's company. Andrew Cravenho sold his interest in structuredsettlement(quotes)com and handed over control of the website in or about July 2011.I
he address that appears on the Genex Capital website at 73 Green Tree Lane #99 Dover, DE is a box at a UPS store. A Genex receivable purchase agreement that Genex has used with investors shows a 2013 form date uses the Delaware UPS Store box [ click above link, see paragraph 8.2(a)]
The Axis of Power is Squarely in Vancouver
So it appears that the axis of power from which the solicitation of American consumers and investors for SSQ is in Vancouver, British Columbia as opposed to Hartford, CT as advertised in consumer and investor facing social media.
And there's the "small matter" of whether or not "Brad Jones", the name that Genex Capital holds out as the leader of SSQ is a real person.
Will there be a structured settlement factoring industry "trifecta"?

- Imperial Structured Settlements/ DRB Capital
[Testimonial from a customer they held out in consumer facing social media as "Kristen", before it was exposed as a possible fake. Facing a challenge to prove that the stock photo testimonial was real, DRB Capital chose to remove it]

Postscript: Following the settlement of litigation brought by Woodbridge Structured Funding against the Genex defendants, in June 2015, Genex began to once again disclose its involvement in SSQ. What did Roger Proctor and Boris Drubetsky have to hide between May 2012 and June 2015?
