On May 23, 2019, the Receiver filed a complaint against The UPS Store, Inc.; Herring Ventures, LLC d/b/a The UPS Store; Austin Elsen; Tammie Elsen; Courtney Herring; Diane Lofton; and Chandler Westover, the notaries and their employer on whom Lamar Adams principally relied to notarize fake timber deeds.

On June 13, 2019, the Receiver amended the complaint to include allegations against Rawlings & MacInnis, PA; Tammy Vinson; and Jeannie Chisholm.

The complaint alleges the defendants’ actions contributed to the success of the Madison Timber Ponzi scheme, and therefore to the debts of the Receivership Estate.
