A Number of people all over Europe are telling us that when making a police report they more or less always say this is not a criminal offence and that they are looking at it as a civil case between you and JF This is not true. The problem is that these types of scams are so difficult to investigate. Often cross borders and makes it into a nightmare. 5 times more red tape than normal investigations and huge costs. This is why they say they “cant” do it. Its an exuse but they also dont have the resources. Seen it 100s of times. Also another strong reason is that from a legal standpoint which any prosecutor has to look at it, is that its more or less impossible to prove criminal intent from the beginning – beyond resonable doubt. So the criminal could always say they had legitimate reason, that they are happy amateurs.. only 1 of 10 start ups make it so they project themselves as naive. We need to have some kind of reaity check. Even if you got as far as someone being brought to justice and put behind bars, the money is gone anyway. from an investors point of view often the most important thing is to get some money back from whatever source. Therefore, need to find a different strategy than going after the criminals.
I try to be as transparent as possible. I dont want to go public about all my strategies. So i try to answer as many as questions as possible. I need to keep my cards close to my chest. Im happy to answer most questions but there will be things i cant answer. That is the nature of the situation. When it comes to the strategy, these perpetrators have gone with the money. As sophisticated as the criminals have been in building and planning the scam, they are equally sophisticated when hiding the money. The people who are the front men are NEVER the people who are behind the scam. People want to be anonymous in this kind of case due to their relationship with their banks or maybe like some even being employed by the bank. I have made arrangment to make people anonymous. Your ID is only for my eyes Never for anyone else. The list of my clients will be certified by the public notary in Sweden and then made anonymous No names will ever be revealed. My paralegals might know some names but they will never have your ID documents. I have a list of about 60 banks that are involved. There are some standing out as being more so than others. Im also asked alot about the scam when it comes to reporters. I am in communication everyday with reporters They are asking why all these people have been scammed, its so obvious. Dont these people have their own responsability? I have met and i have been representing 100s of people who are smart, intelligent, educated and experienced who have all been scammed. These criminals are so sophisticated in the scam, so anybody can fall for it THere shouldnt be any guilt or feeling stupid for having fallen for it. I always repeat to the reporters: All of you have used your banks and other individuals who have faciliatated this scam. You have trusted these people to have done their due diligence to protect you. Everybody has given the green light to transfer money to JF. There has been nobody flagging up that this is a suspicious/criminal activity. Some banks have said that they need to make a check on JF before allowing the payments and then the bank has given the green light tor ahve said that if you want to, they can send the money. This is a proof of concept for the professionals doing the transfers. You have been scammed because the system let you down. Those who should have had some kind of due diligence and checks have given JF the green light. I have looked at 1000s of transactions to and from JF. According to my knowledge, the system shoudlnt have let more than 1-2% of these transcations go through. 98% of the transcations should have been stopped. That is the normal situation.I could see that at least 95% of the transcations have gone through and been allowed by the banking systems. This is the difference between what should have happend and what did happen. I need to investigate further why this happend, From my point of view, the system failed. Wether it was a technical failure, or deliberate, i dont know yet. I have my ideas, but i need more inforamtion. its very interesting statsistics.
Within a couple of weeks, we have listed a number of facilitators for JF. This kind of scam depends on many facilitators/organisations, large and small. I am targeting all these companies/faciliatators who should have stopepd this, not just the banks. Within a couple of weeks, we will be starting the first legal procedures. I cant say right now any further about this, but it will be a suprise. If any more want to sign up into the claimants group, i can still take them. This gives me more power for when i start the legal proceedings.
Im working more or less 24/7 to try to catch up and help everybody who is a victim in this case. I have clients all over the world, the largest number are in Europe. You can put any questions to me via telegram or email. I will try to do as many digital meetings as possible and help and support you in any way. I am collecting all the questions i am receiving and i will address the most frequent of them in these meetings.
