Bass Mint Management Group & Carl Edward Osias – BG & SBLC Fraud Confirmed!

Secure Platform Funding has been working closely with several parties who approached Secure Platform Funding asking for help to verify if financial instruments issued by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group operating out of Canada were real or fraudulent.

On the 14th December 2016 we were able to confirm that we have received two written confirmations from two respected Banks Fraud Departments that confirm that Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments issued by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group are Fraudulent.

The Undisputed Evidence of Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Groups Confirmed Fraud

1/ Banco Central Do Brasil Confirms Fraud

Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group offered to sell our client 3 or 4 Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments. After a number of questionable actions by Mr Osias our client became suspicious and the client then held a face to face meeting with Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group were the client presented to Mr Osias the Banco Central Do Brasil documents Mr Osias had previously supplied the client by email and the client asked Mr Osias if:

a) He has personally supplied the Bank Instruments in the clients hand? To which he replied Yes

b) Were the Bank Instruments in the clients hands authentic, genuine and real? To which he replied Yes

Following the face to face meeting with Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group the client sent the Bank Instrument documents supplied by Mr Osias to the Banco Central Do Brasil for verification. The Banco Central Do Brasils written response is below confirming all documents it received are 100% Fake and Fraudulent and they have referred the matter to the Brazilian Federal Police for Investigation.

2/ HSBC London Confirms Fraud

Our client was purchasing the Bank Instruments with the intention to deliver them to HSBC London, so the client also sent copies of the Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments supplied by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group to HSBC London for verification and approval. The clients confirmation of HSBC Londons response is below:

IMPORTANT: Financial Instrument Rules

Grunge rubber stamp with text Know The Rules,vector illustration

The Financial Instrument Rules are a set of rules that 99.9% of all transactions in the industry operate within and very few clients or brokers seem to be aware of them, so here are the rules we live by:

Financial Instrument Rule 1: Leased BGs and SBLCs are NOT accepted into PPP. You have to monetize a leased BG or SBLC first and place the monetized cash into PPP.

Financial Instrument Rule 2: PPP Only accepts Owned BGs, SBLC & MTNs, Cash and Blocked Funds.

Financial Instrument Rule 3: A BG or SBLC, MUST contain the words 'assignable, transferable, irrevocable, unconditional, divisible' to be monetized.

Financial Instrument Rule 4: You CANNOT put borrowed or loaned funds into PPP. You need to prove the source of funds was earned legally by you to be accepted into PPP.

Financial Instrument Rule 5: Monetizers Minimum BG, SBLC & MTN Value is 10M. BG, SBLC & MTNs under 10M aren't worth monetizing.

Financial Instrument Rule 6: BGs & SBLCs No Money Upfront don't exist. It's a fairytale! No one gives away hundreds of millions in value and hopes you pay later! Read more here

Financial Instrument Rule 7: DLC, LC, Payment Guarantees & Performance Bonds cannot be is monetized as the instrument is directly linked to a clients goods contract that must be fulfilled.

Financial Instrument Rule 8: If a MTN is not in Trade 99% of the time it cannot be monetized!

Financial Instrument Rule 9: Less than 1% of Brokers have ever closed a deal and been paid because they mistake activity for productivity and they are so buy passing deals to other brokers instead of dealing direct with real providers like Secure Platform Funding.

Financial Instrument Rule 10: 99% of the Revenue in the industry comes from less than 3% of Clients.

Financial Instrument Rule 11: The Fastest way to money is to Filter every deal through our Banned Assets & Financial Instruments Providers List. Focus on the deals that work, not the deals that don't!

Financial Instrument Rule 12: Bank dollars not percentages! Too many deals fail because brokers/clients are focused on percentages instead of dollars. Bank 100% of something than 0% of millions. Greed kills the most deals!

Menlo Investments Limited Hijacked by Scammers

The Best Scam of 2016! Menlo Investments Limited

This Scammer hijacked Menlo Investments, a legitimate company and used it to scam Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars posing as an authentic BG & SBLC Issuer when the whole time he was 100% Fake.

What is better than hijacking a real, authentic, legitimate company, that has been trading for years with no negative publicity which has a respected UK Attorney as a Director who signs all your documents and the business has disclosed public links to Barclays Bank, has offices in Londons Banking HQ AND has.... Publicly filed accounts showing a 86 Million pound Profit in 2015. Menlo Investments Limited which was Incorporated on the 5th December 1997 was the perfect target and sadly scammers have taken full advantage of it.

This scam has probably only been operating from the 27th September 2016 until today's date 2nd December 2016 and in that period of just over 2 months staff at the "genuine" Menlo Investments office have advised they know of at least 12 clients who have been scammed and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Secure Platform Funding...Warning Ignored!

When this client came to Secure Platform Funding to have us monetize a SBLC from Menlo Investments Limited in the UK issued by HSBC Bank, London, our Compliance Department reviewed the Menlo Investments documents and warned the client not to proceed. The Client ignored our WARNING and was scammed out of $65,000 Euros and the scammers wanted a lot more!

The Secure Platform Funding warning was based on simple maths! Menlo Investments documents offered the client the delivery of a 50M HSBC SBLC for just $35,000 Euros. The Bank fees for the delivery of an 50M SBLC are significantly higher than $35,000 Euros so it was clear there was no possible way that Menlo Investments the SBLC issuer could have delivered the SBLC for the price they were charging the client.

But the client who was motivated to pay as little as he could, ignored our advice and proceeded to engage Menlo Investments to deliver a 50M HSBC Bank, London SBLC to us for Monetization. BIG MISTAKE! In life you get what you pay for. Pay peanuts get peanuts! Banks dont give Bank assets away cheap, they never have and they never will.

The client paid $65,000 Euros (because once the client paid $35,000 Euro to the scammer, he then said they needed more money to deliver the SBLC, so the client paid them another $30,000 Euros, Total Loss $65,000 Euros). And the client  received NOTHING! NO SWIFT, NO INSTRUMENT AND EVENTUALLY NO EMAILS OR PHONE CALLS REPLIED TO!

Here is a brief look at the scam..... The Documents below are real documents from this scam but have been redacted to remove the name of the client who was victim.

Invoice 2:  $30,000 Euro with Two Menlo Investments Corporate Seals

Invoice 2_001

The Scammer even used a Menloinvestments.co.uk email address

The Scammer used this domain name below in all communications to scam clients, so either the scammer registered this domain name so he could use it exclusively or he hacked the "genuine" Menlo Investments email server. Either way the scammer used menloinvestments.co.uk which is actually registered to the "genuine" Menlo Investments address to represent himself as Patrick Brittain Volsey, Menlo Investments Director and Attorney - full details here.

Menlo Investments Whois

Menlo Investments Director & Lawyer Patrick Brittan Voiseys Passport used on all Scammer Documents!

Patricks Passport

Menlo Investments Signature, Company Seal and Director ID used on all Scammer Documents!

Patricks Signature

Summary

This was a sophisticated scam where either Menlo Investments have experienced a significant data breach or the Scammer has taken a lot of time recreating himself as Menlo Investments Patrick Brittain Voisey to maximise the revenue from his scam.

The Scam was finally uncovered when Menlo Investments delivered NOTHING, no RWA, no swift MT799, and no Swift MT760. At Secure Platform Fundings request the client flew from Europe to Menlo Investments offices in London and to HSBC Bank in London to verify sadly that he was the 12th Victim to be scammed using the above documents.

Currently there is no warning about this scam on the internet, we have written this article to save more victims from entering the scam and by disclosing the scam we hope to bring a stop to it.

It should be noted that Menlo Investments Limited is a legitimate business with significant turnover and assets, sadly their legitimate business has been misused seemingly without their knowledge or consent and they are a victim as much as the clients who have lost money to this scammer are. It would be wise for Menlo Investments to issue a public statement on this scam and the misrepresentation of their business by the scammers. We would welcome a public statement by Menlo Investments and would happily publish it here or link directly to it.
