To: Jonathan Cartu, Leeav Peretz, Nati Peretz (the “Peretz Defendants”), Ryan Masten,  All Out Marketing Limited (“All Out”), and Blue Moon Investments Ltd. (“Blue Moon”)

YOU ARE HEREBY SUMMONED and required to serve on plaintiff’s counsel,  Benjamin E. Sedrish of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), 77 W Jackson  Blvd. Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60604, USA, an answer to the First Amended Complaint that was filed against you in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas, within 30 days from  Sunday the 25th of June, 2023. If you fail to do so, judgment by default will be taken against you  for the relief demanded in the complaint. Any response that you serve on the plaintiff in this  action must be filed with the Clerk of the Court for the United States District Court for the  Western District of Texas.


Beginning on or around May 1, 2013, and continuing until at least April 29, 2018,  Jonathan Cartu marketed, offered, and sold illegal, off-exchange binary options to retail  customers on websites under the BeeOptions, Glenridge Capital, and Rumelia Capital binary  options brands. As alleged in the complaint, Cartu, as well as Defendants Leeav Peretz and Nati  Peretz, operated call centers primarily located in Israel that targeted and victimized United States  residents by promising “quick” returns of “between 60-85%” by trading binary options. The  complaint further alleges that, at the direction of Cartu and Peretz Defendants, the individual  brokers soliciting United States customers falsely represented their financial expertise,  compensation structure, physical location, and identity. These brokers also falsely claimed that  the offered binary option transactions were profitable, when the majority of customers lost  money. The complaint further alleges that Cartu controlled the binary options transactions and  manipulated the results of some trades to force customer losses and generate profits for  themselves. As a result of this conduct, Cartu and the Peretz Defendants violated Sections 4c(b),  4d(a)(1), and 6(c)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. §§ 6c(b), 6d(a)(1), 9(1) (2018),  and Commission Regulations 32.2, 32.4, 180.1(a)(1)–(3), 17 C.F.R. §§ 32.2, 32.4, 180.1(a)(1)– (3) (2022).

Cartu also operated Greymountain Management Limited, a now-defunct “payment  processor” that maintained its principal place of business in Ireland. Ultimately, through  Greymountain and other related entities, Cartu and others working with him fraudulently  processed at least $165 million in customer funds in connection with their binary options trading  scheme and misappropriated a significant percentage of those funds by utilizing various  manipulative or deceptive devices, including by artificially manipulating the results of binary  options trades to force customer losses. The complaint alleges Jonathan Cartu owned and  controlled Blue Moon. The complaint further alleges that Cartu used Blue Moon to execute the alleged fraudulent scheme, including by transferring, holding, and concealing funds obtained in  connection with the scheme.

Cartu and the Peretz Defendants may obtain a copy of the complaint by calling Mr.  Sedrish at 1-312-989-9571; by making such request in writing to Mr. Sedrish at the address  above, or by visiting the following website:, clicking on News and Events, and  typing in Press Release No. 8321-20 (or, alternatively, going directly to CFTC Release No.  8321-20, dated September 2, 2020, available at the following URL:
