It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of Citadel EFT, Inc. (“Citadel”) because of questions regarding the accuracy of assertions by Citadel in public statements regarding the company's business operations and assets. In particular, there are questions regarding the accuracy, completeness, and validity of Citadel's several recent press releases, Form 8-Ks, and other public statements since January 2014 relating to transactions involving standby letters of credit (“SBLC's”), see Prime Bank Instrument Fraud, TreasuryDirect.gov (U.S. Department of the Treasury), http://www.treasurydirect.gov/instit/statreg/fraud/fraud_primebank.htm (last visited Mar. 20, 2014) and Brazilian Letras Tesouro Nacional (“LTN's”), see Frauds Related to Public Bonds, Tesouro Nacional (Brazil), https://www.tesouro.fazenda.gov.br/en/about-the-federal-public-debt/frauds-related-to-public-bonds (last visited Mar. 20, 2014). Citadel is a Wyoming corporation based in Oceanside, California. It is quoted on OTC Link under the symbol CDFT.
