OFWS BEWARE: Atty. 布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera)'s 诺亚 Foundation and its Overseas Remittance Scam



Monkey remittance business preys on unwitting 战车 ? Ginamit si Inday? And since when did Atty. 布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera) become the "chief legal advisor for the 杜特尔特总统府"?

简而言之,加密货币是不受任何中央银行控制的数字货币。我不会详细介绍加密货币的工作原理。

目前最流行的加密货币是比特币。除比特币外,其他加密货币也得到了广泛的接受。如此说来,本文专门针对“Noah Coin” (also called “Noakoin”),一种加密货币,根据其网站显示,将于2018年6月12日推出。

根据  诺亚Coin.org:
“NOAH币的主要市场包括OFW(海外彩票中心工人)。对于出国赚钱的彩票中心工人来说,这是一种很有前途的方法,他们可以通过汇款回家的方式为家人赚取收入,而这个市场的规模已经增加到3万亿日元。”
注意:按当前汇率计算,3万亿日元大约等于260亿美元。

We clearly see that 诺亚 Coin’其主要市场是OFW人口,其主要目的是用于海外汇款。

根据 the same site, 诺亚 Coin is a project of the Philippines-based 诺亚 Foundation, and that part of the earnings from 诺亚 Coin transaction fees will be used to fund 诺亚 Foundation’s charitable work.

听起来是一个好主意!毕竟,像彩票中心这样的贫困国家可以从其海岸上的另一个慈善基金会中受益。

WHO’s behind 诺亚 Coin?

诺亚 Foundation’s 诺亚 Coins is, for the most part, a low-cost remittance service that mainly targets 战车 . And just like any other newly-introduced remittance service, I felt it proper to check the reputation of the people behind it.

诺亚 Coin’网站(NCW)列出了六(6)位关键人物,“Noah Foundation Team”:

A screenshot of "诺亚 Foundation Team".
1. 行政人员 / Lawyer, 布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera), “Chief legal advisor for the 杜特尔特总统府 of the Philippines. Graduate of the San Beda Graduate School of Law.”

2.首席技术官David Mezrahid,“普林斯顿大学的加密货币讲师。还活跃于摩纳哥的私人银行家。”

3.首席董事克拉克·罗伯逊(Clarke Robertson)“伦敦多家公司的CTO。活跃于基础架构开发和网络平台设计方面的系统架构师。”

4. 行政人员 Martin Salvador, “方舟科技有限公司首席执行官。拥有20多年的项目管理经验,涉及多种语言。

5.罗比·安东尼奥(Robbie Antonio),诺阿市(NOAH City)的主管,现任Century Properties的董事总经理兼Revolution Precrafted首席执行官。

6. Bea Rose Santiago公共关系部,“一位彩票中心女演员也被选为2013年国际小姐。在国内外许多媒体上活跃。 ”

好吧,等一下!

布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera)

2006年5月获得律师资格[ 钱罗伯 ],宿务人里维拉(Rivera)以捍卫,被捍卫的女商人和所谓的猪肉桶骗局策划人Janet Lim-Napoles [ q ]。话虽如此,作为自2015年以来一直监视彩票中心政府的政治博客作者,我自己了解布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera)并非彩票中心政府的首席法律顾问。“杜特尔特总统府”一个,阿蒂。萨尔瓦多(Salvador Panelo)仍然是总统法律顾问,而且我还没有听说里维拉(Rivera)代表杜特尔特(Duterte)的任何成员的单一法院案件’s immediate family.

东西’s off. Let’s check another one.

"Chief legal advisor for the 杜特尔特总统府 of the Philippines"


大卫·梅拉希德(David Mezrahid)

谷歌搜索使用“梅斯拉希德·普林斯顿大学” does not show entries that definitively say that 诺亚 Foundation CEO 大卫·梅拉希德(David Mezrahid) indeed works for the illustrious Princeton University. Moreover, a look at the work history in his [ 领英 ]帐户显示他’总部设在西欧和香港,但从未在美国成立。

普林斯顿位于美国新泽西。


其他

世纪地产’s Robbie Antonio’s [ 领英 ]帐户不’t include anything about 诺亚 Foundation, and I sincerely doubt that he’d涉足加密货币领域,原因很简单,他’在做其他事情上要好得多。

“Executive” Martin Salvador, which 诺亚 claims to have over 20年 of experience in project management, turns out to have been a K-12 teacher in the United States from 2001 to 2012[ 领英 ],那么那些在哪里“20 years” come from?

同时,我似乎找不到任何有关“Chief director”克拉克·罗伯逊(Clarke Robertson),该网站声称是多家伦敦公司的CTO(首席技术官)。

最后, 国际小姐2013 Bea Rose Santiago, supposedly 诺亚’s PR head…我什至必须解释一下吗?

闻起来像欺诈

So far, I have shown that 诺亚 Coin’的网站似乎是欺诈性的。不幸的是,某些OFW似乎已被欺骗,因为 彩票中心驻东京大使馆’s warned everyone in March 2017 against both purchasing 诺亚 Coins and engaging with 诺亚 Foundation.

“BSP… has not issued authorization to The 诺亚 Foundation and/or 诺亚 Global Innovation Services Inc. (Noah Global) to engage in the pre-selling of 诺亚 Coins nor recognize that 诺亚 Coin is a national project,” the embassy said.

使馆补充说,“Noah Global has no secondary license or authority in 卖ing and trading of bonds, securities and similar instruments.”

Moreover, the embassy said 诺亚 can’可以在其注册地址的Taguig Bonifacio Global City的Net Lima大楼中找到。

根据 诺亚’但是,该公司位于Taguig Bonifacio Global City 32nd St. 3106 Trade and Financial Tower的单位中。

但这还不止于此。
The 诺亚 website earlier claimed that 其赞助商之一是彩票中心华裔商业大亨Lucio Tan of the LT group. However, in an official press statement issued earlier this year, the Philippine National Bank said it or any of its affiliates are not connected with the 诺亚 Project, 诺亚 Coins, and 诺亚 Foundation.


根据PNB, “请放心,PNB和LT公司集团将毫不犹豫地采取任何适当的法律行动来解决这种虚假陈述。”

此后,要求LT组赞助的页面已被删除,尽管可以找到整个页面的屏幕截图 点击这里, and one of 诺亚 Coin’的宣传视频声称与LT集团有关’s彩票中心航空公司仍然存在,如以下视频的13:00所示:


东西’真的不在这里,特别是因为我还发现了一个名称相似的加密货币NOAHcoin。 于2014年推出, NOAHcoin is totally different from the 诺亚 Coin discussed in this article, which has yet to be launched.

在相对较小的加密货币世界中,为什么有人会使用以前使用的名称以及当时失败的加密货币的名称?

是的,到目前为止,所有迹象都表明存在欺诈行为。


不退还?没有收据?

I tried to see how 诺亚 Coins work by clicking on the “Buy”noahcoin.org上的按钮。这导致我“ 诺亚币 ”, the 诺亚 Coin payment portal. After registering and logging in, I clicked on “Order NOAH”,大概是可以让我购买一些硬币的东西。

出现一个弹出通知,如以下屏幕截图所示:


根据弹出窗口,”a notification was issued by the Embassy of the Philippines, as it was recently discovered that certain purchasers were carrying out 过多的广告 of NOAH COIN on their websites as agents.”

这很令人困惑。货币’s value depends heavily on how widely it is recognized, so advertising is key to its success. Why would 诺亚 dissuade people from talking about the currency?
I closed the popup and I was sent straight to the payment screen. From there, I saw that the lowest amount that I can buy is US$ 8333.33, with a promise that it will be worth US$ 9,333.33, presumably by the time 诺亚 Coins are launched on 12 June 2018. There are two other options: $25,000 and $83,333.

哇,这需要很多钱!
当然啦’一件事需要一个“entry amount”超过$ 8,333(Php 420,000)但它’s another thing for people to actually give 诺亚 that money. However, a look at “发行邀请码” page shows that a payment is necessary for a 诺亚 user to earn bonuses for inviting other people into the system.

具体来说,“发行邀请码” page states:
“我们确认您的付款后,’发行邀请码’ will be available.”
Adding the fact that 诺亚 discourages “过多的广告”,我们在这里看到的是多层营销(金字塔)计划的经典标志,在该计划中,人们必须先支付一定的费用,然后才能“sell” products to others.

In short, the 诺亚 Project is a pyramiding scheme that disguises itself as a remittance service, especially since it also has a “rewards”加密货币投资组合管理平台中非典型标签的页面。

To make matters worse, the FAQ page explicitly states that 诺亚 DOES NOT issue receipts. Yes, 诺亚 expects people to shell out hundreds of thousands of pesos without proof of payment. The fact that payments can only be made through bitcoins makes the transactions even more untraceable.

这里’s a video recording of what I did in 诺亚coin.co:


诺亚 stole identities?

看来这整个事情是由日本人开始的。

根据他的Facebook帖子, Izumi Tadashi is the one who started the entire 诺亚 thing: the foundation, the project, and the coins.

忠志的一部分’s post states:
诺亚 coin is doing very well and the project is progressing. I am really looking forward to the exchange in June 2018. Please wait for the official announcement from the 诺亚 foundation about the start time of the third term presale.

Tadashi announced this on 11 December 2016. He posted this one month before 诺亚 was registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission:

接收日期:2017年1月6日,即Tadashi职务后一个月。
在这一点上,我有理由相信Tadashi是“王位背后的力量”……但是其他人呢?该网站是否在他们不知道的情况下使用了这六个人的身份?还是实际上有六个?

2017年7月2日,阿蒂。里维拉宣布[ FB ]:

注意:Francis Manalo Santos已经离开小组。
里维拉·瓦森’不清楚它的基础是什么。但是,似乎可以肯定“诺亚全球创新基金会” or “日本诺亚基金会”,从他在2017年8月22日的职位判断[ FB ]。

"诺亚"
After a little more digging, I discovered that Rivera actually brought in August 2017 two 诺亚 co-founders –克拉克·罗伯逊和马丁·萨尔瓦多–到达沃会见达沃市长Inday萨拉·杜特尔特·卡尔皮奥。日本国民泉忠正与里维拉,罗伯逊和萨尔瓦多一起。

L to R: Davao Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio with 诺亚 Foundation's Clarke Robertson, Martin Salvador, and Izumi Tadashi. Sources from Davao City Hall informed me that Rivera brought these three with him.

为了推广他的非法海外业务,里维拉似乎在没有意识到的情况下就使用了杜特尔卡皮奥。毕竟,谁会认为“基金会”将是汇款服务?

我肯定不会。

忠和团伙甚至出现在 DDS全球感恩节活动 于2017年8月在达沃市的鳄鱼公园举行,向武装部队捐赠了100万欧元。消息灵通人士告诉我,这次活动很大程度上是由Tadashi本人赞助的。

支票
非常感谢!但是,以OFW为代价,谁可能会为金字塔计划失去来之不易的钱?

结语

What we have here is 诺亚 Coins, a cryptocurrency that offers itself as a cheap way for 战车 to remit money to the Philippines… but all signs point to a pyramiding scheme. It is unclear as to how many have bought 诺亚 coins mainly because 诺亚’的付款门户不会发出收据,即很难证明谁在何时付款。

诺亚 Coins are issued by Izumi Tadashi brainchild 诺亚 Foundation, with confirmed founders being Atty. 布鲁斯·里维拉(Bruce Rivera), Clarke Robertson, and Martin Salvador. The Foundation also appears to be the financier behind the foreign trips of Rivera’的小组成员,包括博客作者MJ Quiambao Reyes和Rocky Gonzales。

诺亚’的管理员倾向于声称与彩票中心商业和政治界的大人物有联系,大概是为了帮助赢得潜在客户的信任。然而,在卢西奥·谭(Lucio Tan)之后,它受到了法律诉讼的威胁。’的PNB已查明,彩票中心驻东京大使馆已建议OFW谨慎对待该组织。

有了这些,我有一些建议:

1.针对OFW及其家属的金融知识计划,因此他们很可能成为这类骗局的牺牲品。

2.严格的加密货币法规,因为今天加密货币基本上不受监管。

3.严格执行与海外汇款服务有关的法律,尤其是涉及不稳定或新引入的加密货币的法律。

4. An SEC investigation with the option to pursue civil forfeiture proceedings against 诺亚’的创始人,可能会帮助OFW受害者(如果有)。

5. An NBI investigation on everyone involved with the 诺亚 Foundation, and filing of charges if needed.

最后,让我指出一个明显的现实,即OFW的生活已经充满挑战,因此,我希望彩票中心同胞,尤其是那些伪装成OFW冠军的人,不要做会使自己的生活更具挑战性的事情。 [ThinkPinoy]
