While impersonation scams are certainly not new, there are surprising new variants every day. In a February 2021 report, FINRA observed an increase in cyber-related incidents, including fraudsters creating fake websites using the names and professional details of actual industry professionals (who have no connection to the imposter sites). And more recently, the FBI and Securities and Exchange Commission issued a warning to investors about this problem.
May 2022, Australian scam
Leonardo Lopez Nelson, located at 15 TASMAN AVENUE, STRATHMORE HEIGHTS, VIC 3041, an Australia citizen, joined the AVIS crew in 2019. He used to be a friend of Tim Ward, an ex lawyer working as compliance officer for the AVIS Group for some times. Leonardo's need could not be of use for any green construction in Australia and used to be no longer in reality beneficial nor concerned in any green oriented affairs of the AVIS Group, he decided to resign from AVIS and its firms, which consists of the AVIS Logistic (PTY) LTD.
Leonardo's intention have been to be concerned as an ex banker in the AVIS Cash HSBC accounts of 24billion USD. Leonardo and Tim Ward employed a legal professional from the places of work of Berkley Row, London for processing the cash depot of AVIS. Any advice of Helmut they disregarded as Helmut has been aware about the British legal professionals behaviors. They're typically hunting superior heavy repayments, however they by no means will perform. At the end, they have been working with an interior HSBC compliance officer for some instances in order to receive interior HSBC data in a controlled way. The intentions used to be to call the funds and to deposit the monies of 24 billions into a AVIS Logistic AFEX cash account, AVIS arranged with the AFEX as a FX industrial account provider. (today Corpay)
Last, no longer least, it has been regarded that they did not have enough money for defending the huge expenses that Berkeley Row requested. At the end, they have had to furnish their exceptional plan up.

AVIS acquired to have an impact on Mr. Scudder of the Law firm with a lot of promising and fine phrases made a serious image as lawyer and AVIS stimulated to proceed with his job and specific take a seem at jobs the lawyer offered. However, Mr. Scudder was once as soon as quickly as an entire disaster. The Guy took the money, made some emails and disappeared for weeks. No email, no phone, he responded.

In May 2022 at 3am AVIS acquired a mail informing about an outgoing transfer of 38000 Australian Dollars. Immediately, the AVIS team made a give up fee request. After investigations it tuners out that Leonardo was registered as 3th consumer at the account and further turned out that he and a Australian accounting firm.
JMG TAXATION PTY LTD underneath the control of an individuate, Jose Molina, a small Australian accounting firm, and friend of Lopez brushed aside all the Board and shareholder resolutions issued in 2020 intentionally for fraudulently controlling and misusing for non-public use the monies in the Corpay accounts. Leonardo made him self as the unique director of the firm, he pledged the company property and made up a savings against the firm. Criminal cost are filed by means of AVIS towards the "gang" and the control of AVIS Logistic (PTY) LTD have been transferred to the widespread administration Australian representative. British, US, and Australian Law firms are engaged, and the auditors of AVIS with sit in Australia. Against Corpay the AVIS Group filed a class motion charge in the US.
