Courts in Fuengirola to Interrogate Danske’s Managing Director

Share

Klaus M√łnsted Pedersen

Mr. Klaus “Monster” Pedersen has been requested to attend an interrogation at the Courts in Fuengirola in relation to his role in devising, approving and selling a tax evasion Equity Release Product.

Mr. Pedersen is the Managing Director of Danske Bank International S.A. and ultimately responsible for selling mortgages in Spain on the pretext that they would alleviate the burden of Spanish Inheritance Taxes. He is accused by a number of expats of fraudulent publicity.

Marbella Mayor & Nordea Bank S.A. Connection

Nordea Bank Luxembourg has been reported nationally for helping the Mayoress of Marbella, Maria Angeles Mu√Īoz, avoid Spanish Inheritance Taxes.

According to Interviu weekly Nordea Bank S.A., operating from the tax haven of Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and through an office in Marbella, sold a tax evasion mortgage to Ms. Mu√Īoz.

This story was originally published by ERVA when it detected that a company owned by the Marbella Mayor and her husband, Crasel Panoramica S.L., had taken out an Equity Release in 2010.

Nordea Bank S.A. has been publicly accused of cheating customers by making them believe that their product is a legal vehicle to avoid IHT, when such a possibility is tantamount to tax fraud.

 

 

 

 

MEP Andrew Duff Reports the Equity Release Fraud to the European Commission

Share

Mr. Andrew Duff, Member of the European Parliament, has written to the European Commissioner for Taxation and Customs Union, Audit and Anti-Fraud explaining the so-called Spanish Equity Release Scheme (SERS) sold by a number of banks.

In his letter he indicates that a number of banks and investment companies may have allegedly cheated hundreds of retired owners of Spanish property with a tax-defrauding financial product.

Will the European Commission finally step in, take the time to read the deceiptful promotional literature offered by top-tier banks and make a recommendation to the relevant authorities to take action?

 

Thanking N.M. Rothschild & Sons

Big Banner ... very big banner

At ERVA, we wish to thank N.M. Rothschild & Sons. Yes, we are sincerely grateful for allowing our members full¬†access to ‘live’ advertising¬†I¬†(and II) that, introduced in a timely manner as evidence in Court, will dramatically increase the chances of succeeding in declaring the CreditSelect Series 4 sham mortage void.

The advertising, which is being used as the core evidence in support of the victims’ claims that they were ripped off by the Guernsey-based bank, does not talk about investments (and needs not) but it does, an extensively so, about Inheritance Tax mitigation benefits that would come as a result of their ‘specially designed’ CreditSelect Series loans.

The advertising also confirms that Rothschild sells this product “through a handful of selected IFAs”, even if now they claim that the IFAs were selected by their customers.

The only advantage for Rothschild is that they are being tried in Spain, where they can lie as much as they wish!

Is Nordea Bank S.A. helping the Mayoress of Marbella defraud the Tax Office?

Lars Broberg, constructor, propietario de una inmobiliaria y marido de la alcaldesa de Marbella, √Āngeles Mu√Īoz.

 

Early¬†this week, ERVA had lunch with a Malaga-based lawyer. The professional (cannot be named), who¬†has taken a serious¬†interest in the Equity Release scam,¬†discussed with ERVA members¬†prior¬†investigations into the dealings of the husband of¬†Mrs. Angeles Mu√Īoz, Lars Broberg,¬†notably¬†how¬†a company owned by both benefited from a¬†political decision: the modification¬†of the boundary-line separating the municipalities of¬†between Benahavis and Marbella.

As a result of this wheeling and dealing, the couple ended up dramatically increasing the value of their land.

Now you may ask what does this have to do with Equity Release and Nordea Bank S.A.?

SYDBANK AND NYKREDIT IN CLOSE COLLABORATION

Share

 

 

 

 

Sydbank has always denied having collaborated with Nykredit on distributing a tax evasion product from Switzerland and Marbella,¬†and Nykredit has always said that “they were only the lenders” and had no association whatsoever with Sydbank, other than the happy coincidence that British retirees happily living on the Costa del Sol introduced them to each other.

As compulsive-lying Nykredit henchman Frederik Meding put it, Nykredit Realkredit A/S only provided the mortgage which your clients chose to use for investment.

Or more appropriately, Morten Larsen and Kennet Nissen, from Sydbank in Aabenraa stated, the bank has not been involved in Nykredit A/S mortgaging of your clients’ properties and Nykredit has not been involved in the investment advice provided by the bank to your clients.

Furthermore, Frederik (who shokingly has not yet been sacked for allowing his firm to operate jointly with a clandestine firm, in Spain) added, as if to show his firm grip on all law matters whether EU/Danish/Spanish-you-name-it, that it is important for me to state that Nykredit is not a party to or otherwise involved in the investment service provided to you by Sydbank AG. Hence Nykredit is not in a joint venture or other kind of partnership with Sydbank AG. 

It is at this point where one wonders whether lying is endemic to bankers or, more particularly, Danish bankers.

The article, currently posted on Sydbanks’ website, states completely the opposite. Who is therefore lying? Sydbank or Sydbank, Nykredit or Nykredit?

Mr. Mogens Asmund, a Dane that seems to tell the truth, states the following:

Sydbank has developed mortgage offer in cooperation with Nykredit.

 

 

In Nykredit we look forward to expanding the cooperation with Sydbank financing solutions to private clients in Germany.

 

Based on experience with the financing of private homes in France and Spain, we can now offer our Nykredit Danish Mortgage to Danish and German Sydbank customers, says deputy director Erik Urskov, from Nykredit.

Jyske Bank Targeted for Tax Evasion

Share

Jyske Bank has been targeted by a Danish TV company in respect to advice on how to defraud the Danish Tax Office.

The programme, largely filmed with a hidden camera, shows how Jyske uses the Gibraltar and Swiss branches to conduct illegal activities, described as “disgusting” by the Danish Tax Minister.

El Confidencial newspaper, who a while ago published an article that was inspired partly on an ERVA posting, is again sniping at Jyske Bank.

Great job by Niels Fastrup!

ERVA considering criminal action vs. Rothschild

Share

ERVA is considering joining criminal case 527/2011 in Denia (Alicante) pursued against N.M. Rothschild & Sons, Steve Dewsnip and others.

The case seems to have stalled after attempts to deliver Court papers to IFAs failed to materialize (as a result of them not living in those addresses).

Joining this case may help the acting solicitors and their clients by pushing proceedings with fresh new publicity evidence, broker affidavits and other relevant information which has already been filed with the Malaga Courts.

 

Nordea Bank S.A. in Switzerland Tries to Hide Crucial Info

Share

 

Nordea Bank S.A. in Switzerland is in the process of downsizing in the way Sydbank did, we believe. We may recall that this other bank, after cheating the tax offices of several European countries out of millions, was forced to close down (an acclaimed Julie Toft, from the Jyllands Posten, was responsible for the mess Sydbank got involved in).

Now Nordea, keen to cover their tracks, have been erasing very incriminating web-based information so that lawyers acting for Spanish-based Equity Release victims could not prove certain questions of fact, principally related to Inheritance Tax evasion.

 

These are the links they have erased (in the last few weeks):

Erased link number 1

Erased link number 2

Erased link number 3

 

Watch this information whilst it lasts in Google cache!

(Naughty Nordea, you did not really have to stoop so low…)

 

 

Bankia Employee Had No Knowledge of What He Sold

Share

An employee of a Bankia bank branch has confirmed to the Judge that he had no understanding of the financial product he was selling to a pensioner. What he did tell his client though was that Bankia would soon be topping the lists of the most important banks in Spain: as it happened, it went bust and was bailed out.

Pernille Bering, pictured below, was responsible of signing off the largest ever Equity Release tax-evading product to a Spanish property owner (circa ‚ā¨3 mm) when she worked for Finansbanken. Unlike the Bankia simpleton above, we resist cynicism and continue to¬†believe that she was just not a pretty face sent overseas to charge unencumbered homes owned by pensioners with huge mortgages, but a discernibly intelligent person with a conscience.

Pernille Bering

 

But Pernille let everyone down: desperate to get ahead in her carreer but unwilling to get her hands dirty, she employed a locally based housewife, Maria Tremurici-Falter, to sell to unwarned Costa del Sol pensioners millions of Euros worth of Finansbanken Strategic Asset Allocation Revolving Credit Agreements to purchase investment grade bonds (with a rating not lower than BBB- By Standard & Poor), with a special taste for participations or constributions in non-leveraged hedge funds.

Busy with appointments with her local beauty salon to have her toenails done, Maria could still spare some time to loyally fulfil the Finansbanken Equity Release Sales Programme that consisted on the following:

– Maria would advertise on locals papers on a miraculous way to avoid the horrific consequences of Spanish IHT (thankfully, we now know that the correct word is evade).

РMaría would explain to panic-stricken pensioners that, with her recipe, they would be alright.

– Pernille would review potential customers’ income documentation (provided she could find any that is) and, the day before signing millions of Euros worth of fraudulent Strategic Asset Allocation at the Notary Office, she would fly down from Denmark for a quick afternoon sum-up meeting with the client at the NH Hotel, or Guadalpin, meetings that generally lasted 45 minutes.

– Next morning, execution-day, the client would be led to the Notary Office to crystalize the fraud.

It is believed that Finansbanken, later called SparLolland and later taken over by Jyske Bank, sold a total of 20 million worth of Equity Release in Spain.
