GLOBAL INVESTMENTS BANK GIB SCAM?

Are they a continuation of scam? Are they part of the syndicate that also operated GCG Asia as well? Is Darren Yaw part of the syndicate? There are many questions to be asked and many doubts that no one really has the answer now.

Let us compare the similarities the way GCG Asia operated their fraud and how GIB is currently operating as well and we will be able to see and show investors if GIB is also the same syndicate.

WHAT IS FOREX SCAM AND FRAUD

UNDERSTANDING HOW THEY WORK

Forex or Binary scams and frauds, operated by money laundry syndicates, have a unique way, and almost identical to each other. Lavish hotel events and presentations, CEO or Directors with fake credentials, frauds that originates from Malaysia will have Dato as their spokesperson.

They will also quickly create digital footprints to show that they are a legitimate business. However, when you dig deeper into their fake digital footprints and the fake credentials, you will soon notice that there is nothing legit about their business.

If they can afford such lavish events and presentations in a renowned hotel, they cannot be scammers and frauds

The common psychology of new investors, which is something scammers and syndicates love to exploit.  

Let’s start looking at GIB, also known as Global Investment Bank.

HOW DO YOU START A FRAUD

CONFUSE THE LAYMEN INVESTORS

Step 1 in starting a successful fraud, which uses investments or financial gains, is to confuse the layman investors. The best way in accomplishing this is to hijack a name or find a name very similar to a successful business, which is also in similar trades.

The company that supposedly has taken over the clients of GCG Asia, is known as GIB, Global Investment Bank & Capital Trust. For short, we will be addressing them as GIBCT, as not to confuse with other GIB entities.

Firstly, we have on Google, a company known as Global Investment Bank Limited, was established in 2010 headquartered in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) as a prudential category 3 firm.

There is another company also known as Global Investment Bank Limited. Global Investment Bank Ltd was founded in South Africa in 1965 and is owned by CGD, the largest bank in Portugal and a global financial services group that has been in existence for more than 140 years.

ASSOCIATION OF A STRUCTURE ENTITY

CREATION OF A PARENT COMPANY

Step 2 is to show investors, that the company you are about to invest in, is part of a bigger company. And in this case, GIB, Global Investment Bank & Capital Trust, created AFF Multi Finance Group.

In any organization, it is normal to have such a structure. But in the real business world, the parent company will have a board of directors, and they will own the subsidiary legally. They will usually use the parent company to own a certain percentage of shares.

But in the case of GIB, Global Investment Bank & Capital Trust, both GIBCT and AFF, are actually independent companies, with no any legal associations at all.

This is RED FLAG 1

LICENSE, PERMITS

SHOW THE INVESTORS WE ARE REAL

Step 3 is not to make the same mistakes of other frauds and scams. Let’s show the world we have the appropriate licenses. There are a few things to take note. And we will explain in detail their intentions.

FACT NUMBER ONE : Most people recognize the name of certain renowned financial regulatory bodies, such as FINMA, MiFID, FSA etc.

Fraud companies will try to apply for a new but advertise they have all of it. There are few things that investors need to know. Such regulators only have jurisdiction over their own countries. For instance, a financial company who has the FINMA license to operate, does not mean they can legally operate in Singapore. To operate legally in Singapore, the company needs to be approved by MAS. However, should investors choose to invest in a company who has a FINMA license, then the most logical process is that you will be depositing and withdrawing money from a Swiss company.

FACT NUMBER TWO : Not all regulators are the same. Each territory actually has their own regulators, some are easier to apply, some are harder. When choosing a broker, we usually choose who one that has a clean record, operating for a period of time, and they have licenses to operate in more than one territory.

GIB, Global Investment Bank & Capital Trust has a total of only 3 licenses found. They are listed as below. However, their website shows that they have all the licenses from all territories.

  • GIB & Capital Group Pty Ltd. (084 146 403), whereby GIB holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) to carry on financial services business in Australia, limited to the financial services covered by its AFSL according to the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC).
  • GIB Investment Trust LTD (31000163795710) is registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury. GIB is licensed as a Money Services Business (MSBs) pursuant to the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) regulations at 31 CFR 1022.380(a)-(f), administered by FinCEN.
  • GIB Investment Capital Ltd (M20984950) is regulated by the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC). FINTRAC is Canada’s financial intelligence unit.

And once again, the company GIB, Global Investment Bank & Capital Trust, who indeed has applied for a few licenses, is false advertising that they have more than what was approved.

This is RED FLAG 2

ESENCE AND PHYSICAL LOCATIONS

SHOW THE INVESTORS WE ARE BIG WITH MULTIPLE OFFICES

Let’s show the world how big we are. Show them our multiple offices. When investors look at how many international offices, the idea of us scamming will be reduced. Let’s make sure we have prestige office addresses.

Fraud companies enjoy doing this. As mentioned earlier, money laundry syndicates are well informed and they know exactly how the average investors think. Lavish launches, hotel events, luxurious and fast cars, showing off cash, nice looking office, awards, huge digital footprints of their founders, association to world-renown financial companies.

Another thing that syndicates have realized, is to pay for the fake news release. The more media coverage, the more authenticate they are. However, it is easy to pay for fake news and releases, it is not easy to get on top news such as CNN.

One of the investors from Singapore, paid a visit to their Singapore address and this is what he found out. The address given as 46 East Coast Road #10-01 Eastgate Building Singapore 428766. Tel: +65 63487115 is a shared office. There was no physical presence of GIB, Global Investment Bank.

Ben Foo, [Jul 16, 2020 at 12:37:48 PM]:
It is a biz registration address. No gcg or responsible staff there. The office staff says dr Tham instructed that mails to be redirected to Australia. Asked ever heard of names of darren yaw, elvin tey, ray ong or gcg and gcfx, she says no.

I just been there. Not prestigious or impressive building.

They use our money for their dream goal, not take loan from bank. How smart….

According to Mr. Ben Foo, who has also taken an image of the invoice paid by GIB, Global Investment Bank, has given instructions that a certain Dr. Tham paid for the rental for 2 months.

And another potential pointer showing that GIB, Global Investment Bank might be a fraud is that address of their headquarters. It is published on their website at Australia Square Tower 264, George Street, Sydney. However, no unit was mentioned. Could GIB, Global Investment Bank occupied the entire building?

How about their Hong Kong address? It is published as Room 1502-3, Connaught Commercial Building, 185 Wan Chai Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. This address is currently occupied by AGM Group Holdings Inc, which is a company that is listed in Nasdaq and few other companies as well.

And how about their NZ office published at Level 15, 171 Featherston Street, Wellington, 6011, New Zealand. Unfortunately, it is also a shared office or co-sharing office space.

And what is really interesting according to our researchers, there is NOT A SINGLE EMPLOYMENT advertisement for either AFF Multi Finance Group or GIB Global Investment Bank. Such big companies do outsource their employment? How strange is that?

This is RED FLAG 3

CREATE A FAKE DIGITAL HISTORY

PAID NEWS, SEO, SERP, AND WEBSITES

This is a very important step. Investors are getting savvier with the internet. Basic searches can be easily performed and if you are able to create a digital footprint, you might stand a higher chance to win the investors over. GIB, Global Investment Bank did the same mistakes, which is to pay for an online and less reputable news manufacturing company. The recent news of GIB, Global Investment Bank Worldwide Soft launch, came from a company known as einpresswire.com

They are a paid service, where you pay them to have them release the news to their partners. Given such magnitude of launch, and according to Darren Yaw, the world largest Digital Bank and Liquid provider, top news website would have been informed with such press release. Unfortunately, it is hard to fake good news, especially when you might be potentially a fraud company.

This is RED FLAG 4

AND NOW FOR THE MORE SENSIBLE RESEARCH

THE FOUNDERS

Finding mistakes in any fraud or scams is rather easier. But to do a detailed and indepth research of their founders. That will take alot of effort and time. But time is what we have right now. To stop the syndicate behind GCG Asia Scam is what we do.

We are a group of really pissed off investors. And for everyone we stopped investing in your scam, it is lost income for you. And we plan to do that.

JOHN JOSEPH FOLEY

CEO AFF MULTI FINANCE GROUP

There are many theories on who John Joseph Foley is. And initially, he was mixed up with John Foley. Founder and CEO of Peloton. What we do know, John Joseph Foley, the new appointed CEO of AFF Multi Finance Group, has a Law Degree from University of Sydney and was admitted to practice as a barrister in the jurisdictions of New South Wales, Victoria, ACT, the High Court of Australia and Ireland. He is also a Non-Executive Chair of QEM, Citigold Corporation and Hudson Investment Group, both public listed companies in ASX.

However, there is some information that is pretty alarming. In April 2019, John Joseph Foley was seen taking a photo with Darren Yaw, and this was the same period of time, that Darren Yaw had a press conference in Indonesia. This photo was taken in Indonesia IDX. What is the relation of John Foley with Darren Yaw?

JOHN JOSEPH FOLEY

POSSIBLE INVOLVEMENT WITH GOLDFINGER FRAUD SCAM

There are many theories on who John Joseph Foley is. And initially, he was mixed up with John Foley. Founder and CEO of Peloton. What we do know, John Joseph Foley, the newly appointed CEO of AFF Multi Finance Group, has a Law Degree from the University of Sydney and was admitted to practice as a barrister in the jurisdictions of New South Wales, Victoria, ACT, the High Court of Australia and Ireland. He is also a Non-Executive Chair of QEM, Citigold Corporation, and Hudson Investment Group, both public listed companies in ASX.

However, there is some information that is pretty alarming. In April 2019, John Joseph Foley was seen taking a photo with Darren Yaw, and this was the same period of time, that Darren Yaw had a press conference in Indonesia. This photo was taken in Indonesia IDX. What is the relation of John Foley with Darren Yaw?

Further information was exposed to John Joseph Foley. According to www.wikifrauds.net, John Foley is also known as Goldfinger.

It is our opinion based on information from an insider, that Foley “sells” his name to the victims of these men in order to promote the credibility of their projects to what turn out to be victims who have lost huge amounts to them. Furthermore, we have been advised that he has benefitted from lending his name to a misrepresentation to advance the interests of this group. This borders on gaining a financial benefit by deception, which is by definition a fraud. We also know that Foley recently contacted Les Cheers, AKA John Alexander (below) to ask him about one George Leamey who has now become associated with McCoy in a joint effort to intimidate Wikifrauds into withdrawing all we have published about this sorry lot.

Quoted from Wikifrauds

The above news was exposed a day after GIB, Global Investment Bank had her soft launch. This website was exposed by Mr. A.

JOHN JOSEPH FOLEY

THE BERLIN GROUP

In less than a week, angry investors of GCG Asia, uncovered another unsettling news about John Joseph Foley. His potential involvement with The Berlin Group Recycle Bot Telegram Ponzi scheme. 

The Berlin Group Recycle Bot Telegram Ponzi scheme IS NOT THE SAME AS The Berlin Group that consists of almost forty banks, associations and PSPs from across the EU.

The Berlin Group, with Joachim Pydde as the CEO and Director, operate in the MLM cryptocurrency niche and appear to be based out of Australia. The current Berlin Group MLM offering appears to be spearheaded by Laurie Suarez.

More information can be found at https://www.hyipforum.pl/topic/21084-recycle-super-bot-btc-eth-ltc-28-dziennie-przez-60-dni/

As far as we can see, based on the existing information presented, while John Joseph Foley might not directly be involved

DR IAIN GRAY (Phd)

CEO GLOBAL INVESTMENT BANK AND CAPITAL TRUST, GIB

On the front, Dr Iain Gray looks pretty decent and harmless. His Doctorate came from Philosophy and focusing on Tropical low-cost housing. There is nothing really suspicious about his profile. Not till we started to investigate deeper into his credentials.

Firstly, he claims that he is associated to China Southern Architectural Design & Research Organization. A quick background audit shows that he is not related to them.

Next, his personal resume listed that he is the Director of Neopharma Technologies Sdn Bhd. Which is rather strange, given his credentials. A Doctor in Philosophy, with no science background, being a Director of a Medical Devices. And a quick search shows that Neopharma Technologies Limited (NTL) has acquired 100% of the shares on issue of the Malaysian company Neopharma Technologies Sdn Bhd (NTSB).

We decided to explore our search on Dr Iain Gray, deeper into the dark web, and what we found was rather shocking. 

In 2006, a company in Malaysia known as Dragon Gold Sdn Bhd was blacklisted by Securities Commission Malaysia (SC). And the known director is no other than Dr. Iain Gray.

SWISS INTERNATIONAL HOLDING TRUST AG

CFO  Nick Barton Grimley

On 23rd August 2020, Global Investments Bank GIB announced that they have entrusted an amount of USD 100 million to Swiss International Holding Trist AD (Zurich). This amount is to be used as a loan.

Who is Nick Barton Grimley? His real name is Nicholas John Barton Grimley. The company Swiss International Holding current Director is Dato Eddy Kok Seng Yeap.

Both Dato Eddy Kok Seng Yeap and Nicholas John Barton Grimley are not new in this scam game. They were both involved with Quantum Capital Inc. As an individual, Nick Barton Grimley was involved with major scam games such as DTM Limited and Broprox Limited.
