The criminal files regarding Gal BARAK, Marina BARAK and others are extensive by now – more than 1.000 files with hundreds of pages…. victims´reports, bank statements, eavesdropping protocols, reports from interrogations,… it was a long-lasting read and exhausting work to go through these files.
But as a matter of fact we think that by now we know how these investment scams/boiler room scams work and understand the roles of the different contributors to the financial crime.
A combination of aggressive marketing campaigns combined with unscrupulous boiler room employees and wilingful cooperating payment service providers results in big harm for hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting European consumers.
Fate of the SCAMMERS
And we are convinced that all accomplices to the financial crime have to be held liable:
Gal BARAK has already been found guilty as of September 1, 2020 and is jailed in Vienna Austria and will hopefully be soon delivered to the German authorities for even more justice for his fraud.
Marina BARAK, Gal BARAK´s accomplice in laundering the stolen money will hopefully be found gulity in Vienna in the next trial day (Monday, 10th May 2021).
The German prosecutors have already indicted some of the most aggressive boiler room employees, like Moraliyski Dimitar Pentschev alias James Mor(r)a, he will soon have his trial at the Landesgericht Würzburg (as soon as we have more details, we will come back).
We are also eager to hold the licensed/regulated European payment service providers responsible who have been eager to support the scammers, without them, the fraud would not have been possible at such extent.
PAYVISION`s role in the scams
PAYVISION – a licensed European (Dutch) Payment Service Provider – has for years handled transactions for high-risk merchants such as porn (e.g., PORNHUB), gambling or trading (binary options, forex, CFD).
In addition, however, PAYVISION has also participated in fraud schemes of international criminal organizations in violation of the legal provisions imposed on the company as a regulated payment service provider (mainly on money laundering), but also in violation of the requirements of credit card companies to its licensees.
PAYVISION – founded and run by BOOKER, Gips van de WEEGH, LIEM – has intentionally, knowingly, and willingly provided services to other unscrupulous financial service providers, such as T1 Payments LLC (see section 88f) and Allied Wallet (see section 109ff).
Summarizing we are convinced that PAYVISION was knowingly and willingly involved in the multiple fraud of European and US citizens, and that the fraudsters managed to steal tens of thousands of consumers for their life savings over the years through the deliberate help of PAYVISION, for proof pls refer to:
- Information from the criminal facts of LENHOFF/BARAK at the Criminal District Court of Vienna (730 Js 1545/18).
- Statements of the exCEO of the company Rudolf BOOKER in above criminal files.
- Deposit confirmations (bank transfers and credit card billing) for other scams.
- Information from public records of legal cases pending in the United States involving PAYVISION.
