The BridgeMark Scam - Part II

While small investors are counting their losses, Mr. Anthony Jackson closed on the home at 2854 Bellevue Ave. in West Vancouver.

The selling price was a reported $16m for the 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 6,177 sq ft mansion. The home sold on November 2nd, 2018. That price is meaningless to a man of Jackson's caliber.
It was described as...

"This custom built contemporary home features exceptional luxury in an oceanfront setting. The upper floor consists of 3 ensuite bdrms. This custom-crafted, highly exclusive estate stands on a private beachfront, sharing a powerful kinship with surrounding ocean views and mountain landscapes."

Violent Somali gangster Abdullahi Hashi Farah released by Canada - Twice

Somali gang member Abdullahi Hashi Farah has an extensive criminal record and a long history of breaching probation. That didn't stop him from being released twice after illegally entering Canada.

Farah was fleeing an arrest warrant and deportation in the U.S. when he crossed illegally into Canada in late October 2017. Farah told Canada Border Services Agency officials about his criminal record and gang ties. The agency wanted him held, but an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing officer ordered his release.
Six days after Farah was set free, he breached his release conditions and was arrested again. The CBSA gained access to Farah's cellphone. They found recent photos and videos of Farah playing with loaded handguns, doing cocaine, concealing cocaine, and flashing wads of cash. Another IRB hearing officer again released Farah in March 2018. In June, Edmonton police arrested Farah as a prime suspect in a string of armed convenience store robberies. He is now jailed in the Edmonton Remand Centre, awaiting deportation to Somalia. Police aren't saying why he is no longer a suspect in the unsolved robberies.
Investigation revealed Farah had breached immigration and parole conditions more than 30 times in the U.S and in Canada.

The BridgeMark Scam - Part I

On April 18, 2018 Mr. Anthony Jackson CA, a principal at BridgeMark Financial Corp. joined the BoD of LiCo Energy Metals Inc. - LIC.v. On December 7th, 2 weeks after BCSC news of an investigation into alleged securities offenses involving BridgeMark he resigned.

The regulator was motivated ONLY by a complaint from stakeholders of another junior, Blocplay Entertainment Inc - PLAY.c. A shareholder revolt caused by BridgeMark tactics resulted in a complete BoD change. The new board has failed to file financials and is "looking for value". Prospects appear very poor for the company.

The essentials of the scheme are simple and have been repeated dozens of times. The group provides 'financing' but requires the company receiving the money to enter into 'consulting agreements' that returns the vast majority of the cash to BridgeMark. This happens at the same time funds are advanced.
The shares received by BridgeMark 'investors' have a cost base of very near zero. They are basically free. The group blasts out of the paper at any price. Then the process is repeated with some another company.

BridgeMark abused the consultant exemption to obtain free trading paper without need of a prospectus. In some cases, to avoid the 4 month regulatory hold on selling shares they shorted the stock. This is possible for some without a margin requirement. They are shorting from a secured position. An example of this is Micheal McPhie's Prize Resources - PRZ.v which showed a massive short position of some 2.3m shares at the end of October. The short is covered by the PP paper when it becomes free trading. This is a risk free way to unload paper.

The pattern was repeated many, many times. RIO2 - RIO.v announced a $ 10m PP through BridgeMark. Most recent numbers reveal the co blew $ 10.2m in 9 months while doing virtually nothing with their flagship property.

ALL companies involved with BridgeMark scheme are being sold off right now at any price. Most often the seller is tagged as 'anonymous' meaning the public cannot track the brokerage house doing the selling. The principals of BridgeMark, including Chartered Accountant Anthony Jackson are racking millions in gains ... right this instant.

Kingpin Robert Dawes on trial in France for 1.3 tonnes of Cocaine

A British man thought to be one of Europe’s biggest drug traffickers has gone on trial in Paris, accused of importing 1.3 tonnes of cocaine into France. Robert Dawes was arrested two years after the drugs were discovered inside 30 unregistered suitcases, transported on an Air France plane from Caracas to Charles de Gaulle airport. The cocaine had a street value of €240m.
Dawes was arrested at his expansive villa in Spain and deported to France. From his base in Andalucía, Dawes imported vast quantities of cocaine. Dawes mainly used shipping containers to move drugs, but also leisure boats and commercial flights such as the Air France flight.

The discovery of the Air France shipment caused a major stir in Venezuela, where the interior minister admitted the suitcases had gone through security scanners that had clearly shown the presence of drugs. Venezuelan police arrested 25 people, including members of the military and an Air France manager.
Dawes’ criminal empire is said to have stretched from Portugal, France and Belgium to Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Venezuela and Mexico.

Dawes met regularly with representatives of South American cartels at hotels in Madrid. He also dealt with ‘Ndrangheta mafia.

Dawes is facing 30 years in prison.

HA Jean-Richard Larivière tasered, charged for assaulting police

Jean-Richard Larivière had reasons to be grouchy with the police when he attended the opulent wedding of his comrade HA Martin Robert in downtown Montreal. Two days before the wedding, the 50-year-old had been informed that the Attorney General of Quebec was instituting legal proceedings against him to retain $122,000, patches and rings. Although he escaped charges, the state alleges that he and his spouse were involved in HA drug trafficking.

Martin Robert, 44, and Annie Arbic, 32, were married at Montreal’s Windsor Ballrooms.
During the investigation, the biker had $61,000 he lugged to his Infiniti SUV. The Attorney General claims the couple have no legitimate sources of income.

Larivière, who also owns a Jeep Grand Cherokee and two Harleys, is scheduled to appear in January facing a charge of assaulting a police officer in connection with his drunken rampage.

US generic drug cartel - 16 companies, 47 states

What started as a lawsuit over the prices of two drugs has grown to become a 47-state case involving at least 16 generic drug companies and 300 drugs. Prosecutors say executives at many top generic drug companies have been coordinating price hikes for years. “This is most likely the largest cartel in the history of the United States”

The companies named include industry giants such as Mylan, Sun and Teva.

Generic drugs account for 90 percent of the prescriptions filled in the United States.
The exact damages are difficult to guess but certainly total in the billions. Health plans and government programs paid more. Patients who didn’t have insurance or whose coverage required them to pay were also stuck with excessive bills.

Predictably, the companies implicated in the lawsuit have denied any wrongdoing.

Francesco Del Balso pleads guilty to threatening reporter

Francesco Del Balso, one of six men who acted as leaders in the Rizzuto organization appeared before a judge via a video linkup from a federal penitentiary in Laval. Del Balso, 48, was outted in his standover tactics in a report by Félix Séguin in September. Del Balso said it revealed too much about where his family lived and had placed their lives in danger. On Oct. 11, Del Balso met with a prosecutor in an attempt to have a peace bond imposed on the reporter. Del Balso told the prosecutor “that he was in the Italian Mafia" and that he was "a lieutenant in the Rizzuto clan” and that he was upset.
When the prosecutor rejected Del Balso’s request, the Mafioso replied: “Do you want me to take care of this myself? Do you want me to organize this myself so that (Séguin) ends up in a container?”
The Parole Board of Canada has twice revoked Del Balso’s statutory release out of concerns for his own safety, including how fellow Montreal Mafia leader Lorenzo 'Skunk' Giordano was killed in Laval in March 2016 after his release.

Del Balso's release was revoked again after Séguin was threatened. The career gangster will now serve an additional 30 days with 2 years probation.
