of companies for the provision of mortgage banking, investment and 
consumer credit services, because of questions regarding the accuracy 
of assertions by Amquest, and by others, in documents filed with the 
Commission and distributed to investors and market-makers of the stock 
of Amquest, concerning, among other things, Amquest's ownership of 
certain Brazilian ``Rights'' and other assets, the value of certain 
assets claimed by Amquest, the amount of income, if any, Amquest has 
generated, the acquisition by Amquest of certain entities, and the 
composition and involvement in Company affairs of Amquest's purported

Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the above-listed 
company is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT, May 30, 1997
