Update on Bankruptcy Filing of “Real Estate Scam” Mass Joinder King Philip Kramer

Written by Steve Rhode

I previously published this post on the initial chapter 7 bankruptcy filing for Kramer & Kaslow mass joinder attorney Philip Kramer.

on February 22, 2011 Kramer filed the missing detailed schedules.

But first I present to you this gem.

So let’s take a look at how successful Philip Kramer was with the mass joinder efforts.

Kramer’s bankruptcy filing contained about 4,000 names and address of consumers that presumably had bought into his mass joinder scam. But just because the consumers are listed in the bankruptcy filing does not seem to mean Kramer is accepting any responsibility for the outcome.

Kramer’s attorney says, “By listing every person on Schedule F, the Debtor does not concede that he is obligated to those persons in any way. From that standpoint, every claim is unliquidated and disputed.

Virtually every person listed on Schedule F has a claim against the corporation of Kramer & Kaslow, Inc. to the extent that person has a claim against the Debtor. That entity is therefore a co-debtor as to each person listed on Schedule F.”

It appears Kramer is backing away from any responsibility for his mass joinder clients.

He currently pays out $2,000 a month in the following fashion.

Kramer’s lawyer, M. Jonathan Hayes, has agreed to accept Kramers 105 shares of Exxon/Mobil for his compensation.
