The Mike Somma Story

Report
THE MORAL MURDER OF MIKE SOMMA
SOMMA HAS NEVER GIVEN, GIFTED OR SOLD
METRA ELECTRONICS CORPORATION STOCK
The parties involved in this documentary, knowingly
or unknowingly, aided William H Jones Jr in becoming
President or owner of Metra Electronics Corporation.
Therefore: Jones was never legally owner or President.
Somma's assets and mental health has endured this
most horrendous situation, which has been going
on for 25 years+ and is still in court.
This documentary is “The Absolute Truth”

Introduction
What happens to us in life is always subject to luck
and circumstance, and this is tolerable because it is
random, but deliberate deceptions and injustices
are cruel and forever painful.
This is an account of the events that forced me out
of the business I founded and nourished. It provides
an accurate record of the unscrupulousness, greedy
and dishonest conduct by members of my own
family as well as business and legal associates.
2
Using my technical knowledge, I started a small
business, which became very successful. I considered
myself fortunate that my skills, perseverance, and
ethical business conduct were rewarding me with a
standard of living I never dreamed possible, and I felt
secure that I would face eventual retirement in
comfort. Sadly that has not happened.
I was in a totally disoriented state of mind due to my
impending divorce, a fact that was taken unconscionable advantage of to extract naive and imprudent
concessions from me. Had I been on a more even keel, I
am confident matters would have ended differently.
3
I remain bitterly stung by the injustices perpetrated
upon me, especially those of my daughter and son-inlaw, who continue to enjoy the high level of wealth and
lifestyle their deceit has denied me. They show no
sense of fairness or pangs of remorse.
My primary objective in publishing all the pertinent
data included in this narrative, is to bring awareness to
those responsible; that their sins will be remembered;
to assure them that in the final tribunal they will be
judged accordingly; and to leave my descendants a
record of standards of behavior I pray they will never
experience in their own future dealings, business or
social.

THE MORAL MURDERERS
OF MIKE SOMMA
The following biography of Michael M. Somma is the most
incredible and unbelievable story of over $10,000,000.00 in
corporate heist involving coercion, unscrupulous behavior,
ruthlessness, manipulation, counterfeiting and forgery.
And. . .
as a result of this behavior a lifetime of broken families,
financial misery and emotional anguish.
5
This well orchestrated crime was committed
by. . .
Mike’s most trusted
and beloved, “son-in-law”
William H. Jones, and his
accomplices were people
Somma trusted the most.
6
The Most Trusted Person
Involved In This Conspiracy
William H. Jones, Jr: Somma’s Son-In-Law.
Somma hired Jones as a salesman in 1978 after
he married his daughter Jan. Somma promoted
Jones
to
Sales
Manager
in
1981.
In 1986, Somma promoted Jones to VicePresident. Both Somma and Jones received the
same annual salary of $125,000.
7
THE BEGINNING
Somma co-founded Metra Electonics in 1955.
In 1986, Somma moved Metra Electronics from
Brooklyn, NY to Daytona Beach, FL.
In 1988, Jones formed a secret board which
focused on forcing Somma into retirement by
fraudulently acquiring all of Somma’s stock.
8
Somma’s wife, Rosemary had in her possession
all the Metra Electronics shares of stock that
was being held in the Somma Family Trust Fund.
(Total Shares - 174,534)
Rosemary owned 50% of the shares and was in
charge of safekeeping all of them.
9
Stolen Stock Nightmare
December 1988: While visiting in New York, Somma
removed his Metra NY Stock Certificates from the
family’s safe deposit box at Chase Manhattan Bank and
put them in his briefcase.
However, unknown to Mike, his wife, Rosemary Somma
removed the Stock Certificates from the briefcase
without telling him.
Rosemary wanted to make certain that she protected
her interest.
10
Upon Somma returning to Florida from New York,
Jones claimed the shares of Metra Electronic stock
were “Lost."
The stocks were not really lost due to the fact that the
"Trust" still contained all the Metra shares plus 40,000
shares in escrow. The "Lost Stock" was being held by
Rosemary.
Attorney Larry Nixon, who represented Michael M
Somma and Attorney Horace Smith, who represented
Rosemary E Somma were aware these shares were in
the Trust account of Somma at BYN-Mellon.
11
UNFORTUNATELY, what Rosemary didn’t do was to
notify Chase indicating that Stock Certificates were in
her possession.
This would have prevented the STOLEN STOCK
NIGHTMARE.
When Jones heard of this situation, he was advised to
have the shares claimed as “Lost."
12
February 7, 1989: On instructions from Jones’
Attorney, Jeffrey Dean forwarded to Susan Thomas
Metra's secretary, a Letter of Instruction, a Draft
Letter and Assignments that were separate from the
Stock Certificates with instructions for Somma to
sign.
Somma never saw the letter or signed it.
This letter was signed as a forgery.
Attorney, Dean explained to Thomas in this letter that
the Stock Certificates should be transferred back into
the Somma Family Trust and the other shares to the
Jones’.
13
These documents were to be forwarded to Mr.
Emmanual Galfo at the Chase Manhattan Bank (BNYMELLON) as the transfer agent for Metra NY, who
requested replacement certificates be issued for
Somma's "lost" Stock Certificates.
Dean's confusing instructions confused Mr. Galfo.
Therefore, Galfo sent the replacement certificates
directly to Metra.
14
Susan Thomas received the “replacement” Stock
Certificates (NU1172, NU1175, NU1176 and NU1179)
which contained approximately 190,000 shares.
Thomas also received replacement certificates
(NU1159 - NU1169) which totaled 133,534 shares.
40,000 shares were in the escrow account.
Thomas gave the Stock Certificates to Jones.
Somma never saw any of these Stock Certificates.
15
Jones endorsed all the certificates and sent them to
Galfo (Chase Manhattan now BNY-Mellon) with
instructions to have the new shares of Metra
Electronics Corp NY transferred to Jones.
Mellon should never have produced these
“counterfeit” Stock Certificates because they were
shares without value.
16
Mellon’s February 6, 2007 letter illustrates that all
Somma’s shares in his account were debited to Jones
without any supportive documentation.
The creation of these new stock certificates was part
of the conspiracy by Jones to eventually declare
himself Owner and President of Metra.
The Jones account at Mellon most likely has the same
shares (debited from Somma and credited to Jones).

The above stocks are the only legal stock certificates for the Michael M Somma
Trust (190,636). The signature was forged by William H Jones and replaced by
new Metra Electronics Corp stock certificates by BNY-Mellon.
Metra Electronics’ shares in the Somma account were counterfeit shares
produced by Mellon (NU 1160 to NU 1169, NU 1159, NU 1219 - Tota1: 173, 534
shares). These shares were also forged by William H Jones and replaced by new
Metra Electronics Corp stock certificates by BNY-Mellon.
There are a total of 42 stock certificates which Mellon and Jones have failed to
submit after much communication "Where's The Stock" over the past 25 years.
THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS STARTS AT THE SUBMISSION OF THESE DOCUMENTS.

The four backs of these Metra Electronics Stock Certificates were forged by
Jones and guaranteed by Paul Steiner, VP of Sun-Trust Bank.
There were two additional certificate backs only, with Somma’s signature
forged by Jones and guaranteed by Paul Steiner, which had the following:
 One had a forged signature without a date (a template for other stocks)
 One had a forged signature with a date (this is the only forged and
dated stock certificate found in the records)
These Metra Electronics Corporation stock certificates issued by Mellon for
the Michael M Somma Trust fund were stocks sent to Metra (back had
signature forged by Jones). Mellon replaced these stocks in the name of
William H Jones.

These
10
Metra
Electronics Corp stock
certificates issued by
Mellon for the Michael M
Somma Trust Fund were
replacement (counterfeit)
stocks sent to Metra
(forged by Jones) and
returned to Mellon. The
stocks were replaced by
Mellon for Metra stocks
in the name of William H
Jones.
22
The Somma Family Trust Fund had approximately 190,000
shares: NU 1172 - 1179.
The Jones account contained the replacement shares totaling
173,534 shares: NU1159 - NU1169 and NU1219. These were
counterfeit stock which were not a part of the Michael M
Somma Trust fund.
The Jones account is invalid because the stocks have no value
and were generated by BNY-Mellon who did not have any
authority to produce them. Mellon was probably not aware of
what they had done.
23
Neither Jones or Mellon have ever
provided copies of the fronts and backs
of The Somma Family Trust Stock
Certificates or the new Metra shares in
the name of William H. Jones, Jr.

Letter to Jones
2011.05.12
Dear Billy:
Having worked for over forty years, I accumulated
$10,000,000 that I intended for my retirement and for
the purposes of helping my children, relatives and
friends. You ruthlessly took it away with no reason, no
motivation and no explanation..
This letter is part of my story. The deed is done. What
you did to the Somma family was a premeditated
destruction of a family. The only missing piece is why.
25
But that's what you do when you have complete (blind)
trust in someone. I never believed that you would
betray that trust.
You coerced Metra's executive secretary, Sue Thomas,
to do unscrupulous things behind my back as part of
the steps you were taking to steal Metra from me and
lock me out of my own business. She told me that the
last time you threatened her to do as you instructed,
you would fire her if she didn’t do it. Because she had
integrity, she couldn't stand it anymore, refused to do it
and quit. She said she enjoyed working for me,
respected me and regrets her actions that were
detrimental to me.
26
Jim Napolitano was Metra's accountant and a close
friend. However, as Metra's accountant, he was also
working for you. He was "The Architect of My Debacle."
Did you make him CFO of Metra in 1996 as his reward
for assembling papers for you that would enable you to
secure all of my assets-stocks, properties and Metra?
Jeffrey Dean, whom I also trusted, composed a letter to
Chase-Manhattan (Mellon-Bank of NY).
Paul E Steiner,VP-SouthTrust Bank of Volusia County
witnessed forged Metra Electronics Corp stock
certificates of The Michael M Somma Trust Fund on
4/19/91.
27
The fact that Attorney Vukelja was prevented from
deposing you is suggestive of the fact that you had
something substantial to hide. This was legal manipulations resulting in the failure to require you to submit
critical evidence. Evidence took the form of the Metra
Electronics Corp of NY stock certificates for The Michael
M Somma Trust Fund.
Counterfeiting and forging were the main issue. After
over twenty years of many requests to produce copies,
Mellon has refused to submit them. Dennis Manion of
Mellon Investor Services refers (conveniently) to the
Statute of Limitations. Because no evidence was
produced, how could a Statute of Limitation be in
effect?
28
Rosey, Linda and Michael are all suffering financially
while you and Jan have two homes, luxury cars,
property, etc. Your actions have caused a bitter rift
in our family. Rosey and Michael are estranged from
me because of this. Why should you and Jan have
all the money and they have none?
They have asked me this repeatedly. It all boils
down to this: I trusted the wrong people: you, Jan,
Jeffery Dean, Jim Napolitano, Sue Thomas and Larry
Nixon, who turned over my properties to you. I
cannot give my other children money to help them
in their need because I don't have it to give! You
have it all.
29
Your net worth in 1989 was less than $1,000,000 and
less than 20,000 shares.
(10,000 shares acquired with my help) of the Metra
Electronics Corp of NY.
At present, your net worth is multimillions of dollars.
How?
As a result of the fraudulent acquisition of my assets.
You were never President or Owner of Metra
Electronics Corp of NY or any other Metra.
This brings to the fact, THAT ANY DOCUMENTS THAT
YOU SIGNED AS PRESIDENT WERE A FRAUD.
This especially includes the agreement of June 14,
1995.
30
Who or what created this condition is a mystery to me
and my readers of the Moral Murder Documentary.
My guess is that the state of New York and the state of
Florida, together with you and the transfer of
documents, contain the answer.
If anyone can explain HOW YOU GOT IT ALL, it will be
short of a miracle. How you can live with yourself is a
greater mystery.
IS THERE ANYONE WHO CAN REALLY EXPLAIN IT?
More importantly, how can you live with yourself
knowing what you’ve done?
Mike
