T-Bar Resources LLC and Tommy Eugene Barber

On November 30, 2007, the SEC obtained a preliminary injunction, asset freeze and other relief by consent against T-Bar Resources, LLC and its principal, Tommy Eugene Barber.† According to the complaint, the defendants engaged in fraudulent conduct in connection with three oil and gas securities offerings -- Arrowhead, Sierra and Sidnee -- between May 2006 and November 2007 where Barber raised through the offerings almost $14 million from over 300 investors nationwide.† In regard to the offerings, the SEC alleged that although T-Bar and Barber represented that investor funds would be held in escrow until 80 percent of the total offering amount had been raised, T-Bar and Barber immediately diverted, and to a large extent misappropriated, the funds.†

The Court also appointed Robert Shepard, Esq., as Receiver to marshal and conserve the assets of T-Bar and Barber for the benefit of investors.† If you have questions, you can contact Mr. Shepard at rshepard@phmsw.com.
