ALL INFORMATION VERIFIABLE UPON REQUEST!!!! There exists a criminal organization in Ukraine that is scamming and defrauding legitimate international businessmen in Europe and the United States. The head of this street hustler conmen goes by the name of Samuel Joel Nirushan but use aliases such as J. Samuel, Nirushan Samuel, Irosha T. Perera, and Nirushan Samuel, and Peter Druggan from Peregrine Capital. He is a 53 -54 dark skinned, Sri Lankian, male between 135-150 pounds. His picture and that of his accomplices can be found on the internet and on youtube . He also uses the company D2 International Investments or D2 Investments. He and his group have used the following email addresses: [email protected]; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected]; [email protected] (wife Iryna Parubets); [email protected] (attorney Anastasiia Torop); [email protected] (assistant Margarita Moskaluk). He uses Skype addresses ITP172 or d2invest. The physical addresses that he uses in his scam are 87 Kotelnykova St., apr.153, Kyiv, Ukraine, and the address for Hyatt Regency Kiev Hotel (he uses this location to set up accomodations for clients and to conduct business), Raddison Blu Hotel Kiev, and the notary office at Ms. Ilona Kompaniets Notary office 9B B Khmelnitskogo Str. Apt 19 01030 Kiev Ukraine. He and his cohorts target and steal money from international businessmen that send them money to set up development or project financing transactions via Ukraine subsidiary companies and corporate bank accounts. His group will target unsuspecting clients from site like this one. Their scam is simple. You send money for set up fees for an attorney and accountant. They will ask you to create a Power of Attorney so they can set you up Tax Identification, Residency, and Ukrainian company. Then invite you to come to Ukraine and open a bank account to finalize the transaction. The fraud and scam happens when they use a fraudulent Power of Attorney in order to steal money directly from your personal or corporate bank account. They will inform the banks and others that you owed them money and it was a contractual dispute. His team consist of the following members; his twenty-something blonde wife Iryna Parubets, dark haired twenty-something assistant Margarita Moskaluk, twenty-something blonde attorney Anastasiia Torop, and thirty-something male accountant Vova Abramovitch. Their latest victims have lost over $300,000. The group uses legitimate businesses in Kiev, Ukraine as platform and shields for their crimes. They will use notary offices like Ms. Ilona Kompaniets Notary Office; hotels such as well known Hyatt Regency Kiev and Radisson Blu Hotel, Kiev to meet and conduct business with their victims. They will falsely claim that they are working with Ukrainian financial companies such as Dragon Capital (Investment Bank), Concorde Capital (Investment Bank), UniCredit Bank, UkrSibbank, Universal bank and Citibank (Russia and Ukraine offices), and Raj Rajaratnam and his former hedge fund Galleon Group. They will use these emails to impersonate bank officials and senior executives of finance companies. This was done to a client with fake email conversations with the following individuals; Miltiadis Papanikolaou (CEO of Universal Bank in Ukraine), Raj Rajaratnam, (owner of the now defunct hedge fund Galleon Group), Igor Volokh, (Director of Corporate finance at Universal Bank), Steven Fisher (Head of Citibank in Ukraine), Amith Sah (Consumer Banking Head for Russia and CIS, ZAO Citibank), Zdenek Turek (CEO of ZAO Citibank), and others. The email domain registrations were created out of Russia. Money is then laundered through Western Union or Bank of Cyprus to pay for so called professional fees to set up Ukrainian companies. Samuel Nirushan claims he is able to secure financial guarantees and financing among Ukrainian and Russian banks and financial institutions based in Russia such as ZAO Citibank or Citibank in London. The group is currently being investigated by a number of law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, Interpol, and National Central Bureau of Interpol in Ukraine for crimes such as, identity theft, mail fraud, credit card fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering. If you have been a victim of this group or know of victims, please contact your local authorities, United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, Europol, Interpol, or the National Central Bureau of Interpol in Ukraine.

My name is Rebecca Baldridge, and I am a finance professional and holder of the Chartered Financial Analyst designation living in Russia and working on projects in Russia and Ukraine.

I have worked with Mr. Samuel in the past and will do so again. I am outraged that unfounded and anonymous allegations can be made with impunity against him. The author of this ridiculous posting has included factual elements such as email addresses and insitututions with which Mr. Samuel does business to give credence to what is clearly a hatchet job by someone who bears Mr. Samuel ill will.

These claims are preposterous. Mr. Samuel is extremely well known in both expatriate and Ukrainian circles in Kiev, and counts among his friends and business associates many of Kiev's most promient citizens. There are any number of highly reputable people, myself included, who are ready to vouch for Mr. Samuel's probity. Moreover, in a business community as small as Kiev's it would be very difficult for Mr. Samuel to hide his identity as the "head of a Ukrainian Crime Group." This is simply laughable.

No intelligent person could possibly entertain consideration for these unsupported allegations. The author claims that "all information is verifiable on request." If it is verifiable, why is no credible evidence presented in this misbegotten posting? Why are there no concrete referrals to investigating bodies or individuals within those organizations responsible for any ongoing investigation? The answer appears to be obvious - because the author is lying and attempting to unjustifiably defame Mr. Samuel.

Anyone wishing to do business with Mr. Samuel would be well-advised to seek credible references from well-known professionals who have worked with him rather than reading this nonsense. It is an outrage that his reputation could be damaged by a cowardly anonymous post rife with baseless accusations.

Rebecca Baldridge,

The information concerning this matter can be provided to you directly by several of my clients. In order for these items to be posted and referenced as it relates to law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, Interpol and National Central Burearu of Interpol in Ukraine it could not be a lie. All information can be provided to the relevant parties upon verifiable due diligence on the parties' request. In addition, if this “unsupported allegations” as you claim then Samuel Joel Nirushan, Iryna Parubets, Margarita Moskaluk, Anastasiia Torop, and Vova Abramovitch should pursue a defamation and libel case against my group. But, they will not because they know what they have done and what will be served to them via law enforcement. My clients who have been defrauded by Samuel Joel Nirushan via bank, wire fraud, and theft are the victims that have suffered the greatest loss professionally and personally.

Furthermore, several of my clients met you when they were in Ukraine. Before leaving for Ukraine, two of my client’s sent your husband, Mr. Sergei Roudik, funds via wire transfer to his Bank of America account in Tulsa, Oklahoma so he could fly to Ukraine to deliver it to Samuel Joel Nirushan. These funds were sent to Samuel to arrange funding for my clients via Citibank in Russia, but this never happened. These funds were stolen and misappropriated by this individual and his group. The wire confirmation can also be provided as well. Therefore, how can you be considered impartial to the crime that took place or considered a reliable source? This seems very odd to me and all others that have been victimized by this group.

In addition, another client funds were stolen directly from their bank account at UkrSibbank in Kiev Ukraine. This also can be supported via significant documents such as fake bank documents, bank wire transfers, phone texts from Samuel Joel Nirushan, and fraudulent email domain registrations that he created falsely representing senior officials at Citibank ZAO. This is a very serious matter so make sure you understand all the facts before you jump in and get further involved. You can contact me direct at [email protected] anytime to discuss this matter further. I will direct you accordingly for your enlightenment.
