Phoenix Associates Announces Ongoing Investigation

MADISONVILLE, LA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate (Phoenix) (PINKSHEETS: PBLS) announced today that the Company is in the process of an ongoing investigation related to Michael Riley and certain information about Mr. Riley and others that was released about them by the Company in recent news releases. In this regard, Paul Alonzo, CEO and President of Phoenix, has written the following letter to shareholders.

To Phoenix Shareholders:

The following "link" contains public information related to Michael Riley (George M. Riley, Sr.) that has been discovered during our on going investigation into certain background information that had been provided to the Company by Mr. Riley and others that had been made a part of previously released news by Phoenix.

Our investigation is on going and is very detailed and in depth.

There are many possibilities that are being investigated which include false and misleading statements that are being made to certain current or past shareholders by certain individuals which are then being passed on to the public via the "chat" boards as if proven facts by these current or past shareholders. We believe that these actions have damaged Phoenix share value dramatically and those involved will be dealt with at the proper time at the end of our investigation.

Phoenix continues to operate its divisions as usual, while dealing with this very serious issue. We will continue to make news releases from time to time as our ongoing investigation and the investigations of certain local, state and federal authorities that are now involved brings out all the facts on these matters.

Phoenix management apologizes to all of our shareholders for letting ourselves become involved in this situation, but we assure our shareholders that we will overcome this situation.

Paul Alonzo
CEO & President
