Pakhomov in encashment and cashing of funds from the group of companies "QBF", as V.S. Pakhomov was personally interested, including in the acceptance of cash funds, as it depended on the issuance of their salaries, withdrawal of funds to clients, relations with them in the key to investment, and the reputation of the company.

  • Also, due to his circle of acquaintances, Pakhomov V.S. sent potential nominees to the companies of Shpakov R.V. and the lawyers of QBF group of companies for companies owned by and related to Shpakov R.V. 

  • This was necessary for the continuation of the company's activities during the crisis period, as well as for the development of the company in other periods. 

  • Shpakov R.V. needed, among other things, nominees in critical positions to unconditionally fulfil his instructions, make expenditures and provide external cover for his activities. 

  • Shpakov R.V. sent these instructions, including to Pakhomov V.S.

  • Pakhomov V.S. knew that QB CAPITAL CY LTD (QCCI) did not have a license to carry out brokerage activities and other activities necessary for working with securities. 

  • He repeatedly discussed it with him in personal conversations and telephone correspondence.

  • Roman Shpakov notified him (Z.V. Munayev) about subsequent cooperation with Borzenkov on the part of Vladimir Pakhomov. 

  • Moreover, in oral face-to-face and telephone conversations (his and Pakhomov's), they repeatedly discussed the existence of such a client and the stages of problematic negotiations with him.

  • The fact of problematic negotiations is available in telephone correspondence with the word "Borz".

  • He insists on his testimony in this part.

  • The role of Pakhomov V.S. in the case of the beginning of claim activity in the part of the return of earlier deposited money of clients consisted in the following: in branches of a group of companies "QBF" under the direction of Pakhomov V.S. the system of claim work with clients, at which the term of withdrawal of their investments exceeded conditions of the contract, was introduced. 

  • This system included requesting an excessive and redundant list of documents that lengthened the period of withdrawal of funds due to the long preparation of these documents by clients and the impossibility of preparing some documents in principle. 

  • Pakhomov V.S. communicated this system to branch managers. 

  • The managers trained staff on the system, regulated their work, and the staff ensured that the information was communicated to clients. 

  • In addition to the source of funds and housing and utilities certificates, there were also requests for letters of recommendation from banks, lawyers, sources of other income of clients, availability of alternative identity documents, certificates in English and others. 

  • This request was sent to the clients to the company's employees to formally send the documents received from them to the international back office for submission to the sending banks. 

  • Still, these requests and the whole procedure considerably lengthened the withdrawal of funds due to delaying the entire process.

Scheme Overview:

  • The Moscow-based QBF, in collaboration with its Russian sister company Q.Broker LLC and Cypriot Company Constance Investment LTD, promised investors maximum convenience, reliability, and a significant authorized capital of 333 million rubles.

  • Investigations revealed that QBF did not use investors’ money to buy shares related to IPO options as promised. Instead, the funds were invested in development projects of the beneficiary of the group of companies, R.V. Shpakov, and a significant portion of the client funds were withdrawn abroad.

  • By 2021, QBF ceased paying investors for all over-the-counter products, blaming Q.broker LLC for not fulfilling obligations. Beneficiary Shpakov Roman reportedly disappeared abroad.

Key Players: Roman Shpakov:

  • Roman Shpakov: The beneficiary of the group of companies and the central figure behind the scam.

  • Stanislav Matyukhin: The firm’s head, implicated in creating a convoluted legal structure to shield the core business from liabilities.

Key Players: Linda Athanasiadou:

  • Linda Athanasiadou: Linked with audit services through her firm, AeliusCircle and NOA Circle, she played a pivotal role in the scam’s operations. She was also responsible for the money laundering operations.

Stanislav Matyukhin:

The firm’s head was implicated in creating a convoluted legal structure to shield the core business from liabilities.

Modus Operandi:

  • QBF’s allure lies in its promises of substantial returns, leading investors to believe in the professional management of their funds.

Deceptive Practices:

  • Investors were routinely provided with fabricated monthly and quarterly reports, painting a rosy picture of profitability. However, when they sought to cash out, QBF employed a myriad of excuses to deny their requests.

The extent of the Scam:

  • The financial devastation wrought by QBF ranges between 2 to 7 billion Russian rubles. The list of victims reads like a who’s who of society, encompassing religious leaders, generals, ministers, and directors of major institutions.

Unravelling the Scam:

  • The facade began to crumble when investors encountered hurdles in accessing their funds. Further probes debunked QBF’s claims of leveraging AI for investment decisions.

Legal Consequences:

  • QBF’s dubious operations culminated in revoking its license in July 2021. While some perpetrators faced the legal music, many victims remained silent, possibly due to the questionable nature of their investments.

Consequences:

  • The QBF scandal has tarnished the Russian financial sector’s reputation and underscored the dire need for stringent oversight and transparency. As the saga unfolds, it is a stark reminder of the perils of unchecked financial malfeasance.

This case involves charges of forming and directing an unlawful association and committing fraud violating Articles 210 and 159 of the Russian Criminal Code.


Elements of the Criminal Scheme:


Formation of Criminal Association:

Leveraging his influential position, Shpakov formed a criminal association with a clear role distribution, focused on committing fraud through investment schemes in securities and over-the-counter option contracts.


Methodology:

The association operated through structurally separate units with specific functions. They created and registered legal entities, produced fictitious contracts, and involved direct perpetrators and unknowing participants to execute the criminal plan.


Embezzlement Process:

The scheme involved stages where potential clients were identified, deceived into believing in profitable investments and then persuaded to sign client agreements. The funds were then embezzled through various means, including creating false reports and manipulating transactions.


Roles and Duties:

As the leader, Shpakov was responsible for organizing, financing, and directing the activities, including training in deception techniques and distributing the criminal proceeds. Other key members, such as V.S. Pakhomov, Linda Athanasiadou, Matyukhin S.A., Munaev Z.V., A.S. Golubev, and E.A. Rossieva, were given specific roles in the organization, each heading different structural subdivisions and carrying out assigned functions to further the criminal objectives.


Criminal Activities and Impact:

The organization systematically committed large-scale fraud, leading to significant financial losses for numerous victims. Each specific fraud case is detailed, highlighting the systematic and coordinated approach used in the criminal activities.


Termination of Activities:

The operation of this criminal association was halted by law enforcement interventions, leading to the indictment of its members for their roles in the organization.

The indictment underscores the elaborate and coordinated nature of the criminal scheme, the roles of various individuals in perpetuating the fraud, and the significant impact on the victims involved.
