I invested my retirement funds with Cavalier Union

I invested my retirement funds with Cavalier Union Investments in Midlothian, VA. I recently found out that the SEC has filed a complaint against them; the two owners were running a Ponzi-like scheme. They stole over 10 million dollars and spent at least 6 million of that. The other 4 million was spent in either paying investors back their money or paying interest on some investors' accounts. One of the issues the SEC is trying to resolve is the return of the money they stole. Since the SEC is attempting to do that, is there anything else I can do to try to get my money back?One of the owners was arrested; the other was not. The one who was not has filed bankruptcy twice since the fraudulent company was formed in 2010.

I filed my 2014 corporation taxes late because amazon UK

I filed my 2014 corporation taxes late because amazon UK closed my account without any warning so I could not get access to my sales reports and documents I needed to file my taxes. I called amazon many times but they just told me to wait 3-5 business days and call back again. This happened and eventually I was 9 months late in filing my taxes. Can I request an FTA for this situation? And the penalty fee is due 7/25 so if I pay first, can I send in my request for abatement after I pay the penalty and get reimbursed fully or at least part of it?
