Further to our recent article on Van Gossum Consult and St Johns Asset Management we are pleased to announce the closure of Crest Security Contracts Ltd. This closure was enforced on the company by one of our clients. Van Gossum Consult and St Johns Asset Management were frauds which raised substantial sums of investment from the general public.
Crest Security Contracts was a money mule company which collected money on behalf of the scams. Its role was to act as a cut-out between the investors and the scammers. It was owned and operated by Soren Andreasen, a Danish citizen. We assisted one of our clients in a legal action against the company which has resulted in its closure and a referral to the UK’s Official Receiver for an investigation into the activities of the company and the conduct of its director.
Other money mule organisations involved in collecting money for Van Gossum Consult and St Johns Asset Management were:
Clearline Contracts Ltd of the UK owned and operated by Aren Pedersen (another Danish citizen); and
Parkwood Financial Ltd of the UK owned and operated by Tommy Bishop (aka ‘Dopey’ Tommy Bishop), a bodybuilder type with a brain the size of a walnut; and
Uldis Traders of the UK (any information on this group would be appreciated); and
VesMotion Pte Ltd of Singapore owned and operated by Karen Pang Peng Im, a Malaysian citizen; and
VipCo Holdings Pte of Singapore owned and operated by Sharifah Farhana Syed Sultanal Abidin, a Singaporean citizen and Hoang Dinh Phuong Thao, a Vietnamese citizen; and
ILF Services Pte of Singapore owned and operated by Ahuja Deepak Shankarial, an Indian citizen; and
East Lake Investments Ltd of Hong Kong owned and operated by an untraceable Chinese nominee director .
The enforced closure of Crest Security Contracts is just the first step in helping our clients recover their money. The arrest and conviction of the perpetrators is a secondary aim. We are confident we will catch these people because we are in possession of additional information which we have chosen not to publish at this time.
