The year 2022 was marked for the world as the beginning of hostilities on the European continent. Millions of Ukrainian refugees poured into the EU countries. The worldactivated it’s support towards the disadvantaged and affected by the war. But the European community is far from being a life-saving raft for all Ukrainians. For some citizens this is also a good method for earning. Moreover, earnings that are not always legal. The story further narrates about one of these actor.
Dmitro Vizelman was born in 1965 in Lvov, Ukraine. He started his activity with small business schemes, unatractive in any way. But the 90s became a golden time for many dishonest businessmen. So, the same happened with the hero of our story. In 90s Dmitry lived in Cherkassy, well-known Ukrainian city. Residents of Cherkassy write about this period:
“Like all cities in Ukraine in the 1990s, Cherkassy was characterized by the activation of criminals at the ordinary level as well as in the high positions level: bandits tried to control over the city. Сomparing with other large cities in Ukraine in 90s, Cherkassy took one of the first places by the number of banditism. In the 90s, Cherkassy was marked as one of the first cities with high level banditry as compared to other big cities. The local police tried to suppress the criminals, but it was not possible till uncertain times.”
Being on the wanted list, Vizelman hid himself in Germany as refugee, where he began selling counterfeit cigarettes. Later when he has followed by Berlin police, he escaped to Miami, and immediately fell under legal proceedings there.
Being actively engaged in “business” in the USA, Dmitro Borisovich did not forget about his homeland – Ukraine. At that time, being granted citizen of the UK, Vizelman twice got into scandal schemes for illegally obtaining of building plots providing forged documents. He practiced that further, but more on that later.
Dmitro Vizelman practiced more and more sophisticated enrichment schemes in more exotic jurisdictions. So, some years ago together with his partner in incorporate business, Dmitry Borisovich implemented a project in the Philippines. Nor more nor less – it was a construction and building of a plant costed more than $ 30 million. Investors were found cheated provided false documents for the ownership a number of companies in the Philippines. As a result, instead of the plant, Vizelman‘s partners received a non-functioning warehouse of rusty iron, and most of the investment flew into the pockets of Dmitro and his accomplices.
For the implementation of his schemes, Dmitro Borisovich often uses personal accounts opened in eminent banks – Barclays bank, Raiffeisen, EFG (Monako), etc. They were used for money transfer from partners who strongly believed in the success of Vizelman‘s business ideas.
How did Wieselman found victims of his manipulations? Actually, his wife actively supperted him in his deals. They made acquaintance with wealthy ladies … in the synagogue. The Jewish diaspora of very wealthy people in Monaco is a quite closedsociety. It was the place where Diana Vizelman found the wives of wealthy businessmen, gained their trust and consequently with Dmitro penetrated to local parties. Those were the hangouts, where the husband promoted his business ideas, that turns out to be a loss of money for entrepreneurs.
Bellow is a small list of victims of Dmitro Borisovich: Robert Gaspar, Alexander Bronstein, Mr. Monasir, Tofig Arif. Actually, the last one filed a lawsuit for the amount of $20 million in the London court on Vizelman. As a result, Dmitry was forced to hide his property, transferring it to fake people and selling it in the market (ed. note – an apartment in Miami).
The total amount of stolen funds is approaching $100 million.
