Devil’s Associates

First of all, a big thanks to everyone who contributed to this article.

This article includes only a few side-kicks closer to Brit fraudster Ian Leaf or Ian Andrews who aid him to steal from the innocent. For a completer version of their complex network, please see the Network page.

The Tealeaf James Bond

For starters, this is a great article to know more about Ian Leaf, the remorseless Brit conman:
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/exclusive-54million-tax-tea-leaf-577846

Kevin James Steele

Kevin James Steele (also known as Kevin Macleod) is Leaf’s righthand man and his loyal partner in heinous crimes. Steele is a former partner at Princess Diana’s law firm, Mishcon de Reya. He served a lengthy jail term for helping a conman, Michael Shepherd, pull off a ‘spectacular’ £17.5m fraud on a Swiss bank.

There is a long list of media articles for Leaf’s disciples; this post includes only a few examples to keep it brief.

Luigi Wewege

Highly ambitious Italian-born South African Ponzi Master Luigi Wewege, a man of many faces and owner of dozen identities, is Leaf’s ex-partner in crime. He was frequently in the spotlight at the time of his involvement with HFC and the Vivier Group. Luigi currently lives in Panama City and runs a Vivier-like offshore company called Caye International Bank, established in Belize.

Anita Marion Kohn

Anita Kohn is a long-standing partner of Ian Leaf and is the Vice President of Vivier and related shell companies (as shown on the Network page).

Ali Hashemi Far

Ali Hashemi Far/Ali Hashemifar is an Iranian currently living in Burnaby, Canada. Ali facilitated multi-million-dollar forex frauds for his offshore puppet masters in Vivier. Ali escaped from New Zealand after allegedly defrauding a New Zealand resident foreign trust, the FKC Private Trust, of $4m. In New Zealand, Ali was interrogated by the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) in his capacity as General Manager of Vivier. Ali is still a director of shell companies in New Zealand and is currently under investigation for money laundering and forex fraud in the United States.

Martin Haschka

A furious hillbilly, Martin Hascka, is the CO-CEO of Vivier and related companies. Martin lives in Romania/Austria. He hires his acquaintances under false pretences to do his and Ian Leaf’s dirty work. The most recent example of this was his appointment of his naïve friend, Alan John Court, from Dunedin, New Zealand as a director and proxy shareholder of Vivier. After the departure of Alan in August 2020, Martin became 100% shareholder of Vivier. He transferred 51% shares of Vivier & Company, Vivier Investment Ltd, and Vivier Capital Ltd to a Spanish entity called Larimar Blue 2014 on April 1st 2021 when this article was published.

Sooraj Kumar

Sooraj Kumar is, with Martin Haschka, a CO-CEO of Vivier and Leaf’s other companies. Before the resignation of his predecessor, Leonardo Rodriguez, Sooraj Kumar was a relationship manager with Vivier. Most of Vivier clients will be familiar with his name from the regular emails they receive from him. Sooraj works at the Federal Bureau of Revenue of Pakistan (FBR) as a Tax Inspector while facilitating Leaf’s financial frauds. Sooraj has organized Leaf’s trips to Pakistan using his connections with businesses he was responsible for auditing. Sooraj is currently under investigation in Pakistan for his failure to declare foreign income from Vivier.

Sharon Parbhoo

A South African lawyer, Sharon worked very closely with Kevin Steele/Macleod in the context of dealing with Irish borrowers and Vivier’s investors. People received nerve-wrecking emails from this conscienceless slave of the Brit Fraudsters. The relationship between Sharon and Leaf started to unravel, when, having acquired knowledge of Leaf’s crimes, Sharon started to demand a bigger share of the pie. After leaving Vivier, Sharon wiped from the internet all evidence of her association with Ian Leaf and the company that she had once been very proud to work for. However, the spectre of victims and their digital footprints across the web are indelible reminders of the ongoing impact on their lives of the legacy of Vivier.

The Spanish investors used Vivier to hide their money. Wewege and Leaf always had a plan to scam such people so they cannot go to court.

Wewege and Leaf has shown a middle finger to the Spanish, Japanese and German Investors.

It is good what happened with these Spanish idiots. Their greed of 2% extra interest.

For me a bigger crook than Leaf is this pervert Luigi Wewege. He is one of the lowest standard dirtbags you will ever come across.

The snake thinks he is a charming banker but in reality he is the epitome of fraud.

Kicked out of NZ, IE and US this fraudster has now joined hands with another dirtbag Joel Nagel to spearhead their dirty laundry bank “Caye Iternational Bank” where they launder money for international criminals and fraudsters. Surely Leaf must be associated with these crooks all along.

It is hard to believe these Con Artists are still operational. When we won our case a couple years back we hoped it will be an end to their misadventure. It is sad to see that other defendants had to go through what we went with. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Stealing is the only livelihood of these fraudsters. Scamming is the only skill they have, and they are very good at it. They will starve if they stop stealing hard-earned money from people. Ian Leaf stole from his friends and family members when he could not steal from the public. He would not hesitate to do the same with his children in desperation. Everyone, please stay united & safe from the monster!

Modus Operandi of this racist syndicate

1. Change their names, company names and addresses as frequently as possible
2. Use offfhore companies to hide any details of ownership
3. Use nominee directors and shareholders who have no clue about the crime done using their names
4. Threaten, abuse and blackmail their victims or recruits who refuse to work with them
5. Produce fake documents
6. Hack victim accounts
7. Use traps by sending other crooks to distract you and befriend you to extract information
8. Bribe officers
9. Intimidate lawyers of the victims
10. Route all the crime money to their family member accounts and companies that belong to them only on papers
11. Make the recruits, suppliers and victims sign one-sided contracts
12. Change lawyers to delay the court process
13. Open and close bank accounts to make it dofficult to track money
14. Change company directors so the new ones are not aware of previous crimes – Alan John Court, John John
15. Include other criminals so they can peotect each others back – Luigi Wewege, Kevin Steele, Miroslava Klenova

The entire Leaf family is a group of cheats. The daughter Marisa Leaf is also a colorful personality with a history of scamming investors.

The other son Jarrod took huge sums of money from Home Funding Corporation in Ireland. This money was extorted from the Irish victims. He then flew to switzerland after HFC was confiscated and the other crooks took over showing a fake exchange of shareholders.
