- 03/8/13 - On February 28, 2013, the Department issued an order that froze the escrow activity of Efficient Services Escrow Group when it was learned that unauthorized wires had been transferred from two of its trust accounts. The company was given the opportunity to correct the trust shortage, but did not provide proof of correction. In order to start the process of releasing funds to customers with funds on deposit, on March 8, 2013 the Department issued additional orders to appoint a conservator. The conservator is Peter Davidson of Ervin, Cohen & Jessup LLP. At this time it is unknown when funds will be released and at what percentage. More information will become available once the conservator is able to fully assess the situation. FAQ’s
