Kas Santa Monica Networks ettevõte ning selle kurjategijatest juhataja Margus Väino ja Peep Aaviksoo kahtlase pankroti loo vahel on side?

Ks mäletate 2015.a. märtsi? Igaüks oli šokeeritud Peep Aaviksoo pankroti uddisega. Neile, kellel oleks vaja meeldetuletust, Äripäeval on olemas suurepärane artikkel Eesti suurima ärimehe / poliitiku kohta http://www.aripaev.ee/uudised/2015/03/16/peep-aaviksoo-pankrotis.

Kokkuvõteks, Peep Aaviksool on seadusega keelatud äriühigut juhtida ning on jäänud 2.5 miljoni eurot kreditoorset võlgnevust.

 

Oli küll üllatav leida selle skandaalse pankroti südames osaühingut ROM INVEST, mis peaks investeerima ja haldama miljonid Rumeenias ja mille osakapitaal on 2556 eurot. Ettevõte oli asutatud A.P & P CONSULT OÜ nime all kurikuulsa Mirjam-Mari Marastu abil, maksude kõrvalehoidmise, rahapesu ja kahtlaste korporatiivsete skeemide eesti kuninganna. Tema eristav “nimemärk” on e-posti aadress, mida ta kasutab äriregistriga kontakreerimiseks – [email protected]

 

Nendel, kes ei mäleta meie eelnevat uurimist Marastu kohta, parim viis tutvuda selle tegelasega on vaadata üsna muljetavaldavat nimekirja firmadest, mida tema juhib http://www.teatmik.ee/en/info/p52861-Mirjam-Mari-Marastu)

 

Nii, Marastu teenuseid kasutades (registreerimine, virtuaalkontor, sekretäri teenused, loominguline raamatupidamine, deklaratsioonid, aruanded jne.) asutatud ja hallatud ROM INVEST OÜ on nüüd likvideerimisel ning on viimaste aastate suurima finantsskandaali keskel.

 

 

Pole vaja öelda, et osaühingu raamatupidamisdokumentide, finantstehingute ja kirjavahetuse põhjalik uurimine läbi viidud määratud likvideerija poolt peab ettevõte kahtlaste tehingute kohta tõdet paljastama.

Loomulikult, määratud pankrotihaldur tegutseb vajaliku hoolsusega ning võib isegi heita valgust sellele, mis täpselt on Mirjam-Mari Marastu roll. Tuletame meelde, et Marastu seisab Peep Aaviksoo taga ka tema mõnedes teistes äriühingutes nagu ASHLEY OÜ, või BOLTON REALESTATE OÜ, kus ta on hoopis juhatuse liige. Võibolla need ongi firmad mis saavad kasu ROM INVEST OÜ pankrotist? Võibolla kreditoorid võiksid nende saada raha tagasi?

Kindlasti, pankrotihaldur teeb oma tööd ning õiglust ikka teostatakse!

Kuid, oodake… Pankrotihaldur on Kalev Mägi. Hea asi on see, et ta on usaldusväärne professionaal. Probleem on aga selles, et tema on ka 2015.a oktoobris registreeritud Eastham OÜ juhatuse liige. Ühendust selle firmaga saab võtta e-posti teel, kirjutades siia [email protected]. Nagu teie võibolla juba aimasite, see on üks teine Mirjam-Mari Marastu “nimemärk”, mis viitab kurikuulsa Office Services Group-ile aadressiga Lõõtsa 8a, 11415 Tallinn – mis on a ROM INVEST OÜ registreerimise aadress. Samal aadressil on registreeritud ka sada teist kahtlast ettevõtet, milles seisnebki Marastu äri.

Tundub küll, et Peep Aaviksoo kreditoorid nende raha ei näegi. Järjekordne klassikaline Marastu skeem, bravo maestro!

 

Neile, kes ei jälginud, Mirjam-Mari Marastu muuhulgas, on Ladies Circle Estonia ajaloolise esimese valitsuse liige (LCE, asutatud 1990.a). Seal ta naudib valitsuse sekretäri Terje Väino seltskonda (Santa Monica Networks juhataja Margus Väino abikaasa), Marje Teeriaho patronaaži all (üks LCE valitsuse juhatajatest).

 

Kes ei tea – Marje Teeriaho on Tapani Ensio Teeriaho abikaasa. Tapani Ensio Teeriaho on järjekordse Marastu poolt registreeritud äriühingu juhataja. Äriühing nimega INTERCAPITAL OÜ ja osakapitaliga 2556 eurot on registreeritud ja hallatud samal aadressil nagu ROM INVEST OÜ. INTERCAPITAL OÜ on Marje Teeriaho “tööandja”, ta töötab oma abikaasa firmas projektijuhina. Lisaks sellele, Tapani Ensio Teeriaho on ka MAMAIA OÜ juhataja, kuid esialgu see firma juht oli Peep Aaviksoo.

Samal ajal Tapani Ensio Teeriaho on TL-GROUP juhatuse liige (ikka Marastu toodang), mis omab 20% Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ osadest, mis on omakorda Santa Monica Networks AS emaettevõte.

Muuseas Tapani Ensio Teeriaho on Marastu Office Services Group OÜ osanik ja maksudest kõrvalehoidja AÜRs ja Soomes, kuid see on juba hoopis teine lugu..

 

Hetkel palume veidi tähelepanu Väino / Teeriaho perekondadele – Peep Aavikso / Marastu seosele.

Kõik need isikud on seotud läbi Santa Monica Networks. Äriühingu aadress on Lõõtsa 8a, 11415 Tallinn, ärme unustame, sama nagu hetkel juba äritegevusest väljunud pankrotil OÜ ROM INVEST, mille pankrotihaldur asub samas kohas. See kõik tundub kuidagi pehkinud..

 

Asi hakkab haisma kui me rõhutame selle asjaolu, et Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ ei ole IT firma, nagu paljud arvavad. Ei, see on hoopis finants- ja kindlustusettevõte. Äriühing küll ei tegutse mingi vastava litsentsi all, kuid ikka väidab et pakub finants- ja kindlustusteenuseid.

 

Nagu sellest ei piisa, Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ juhatuse liige lätlane Justas Dargužas (mis on täiesti loogiline eesti firma jaoks!) on ka ühe teise huvitava äriühingu juhatuse liige – VESTA INVESTMENTS OÜ. Lugu on ikka sama, arvasite ära, sama aadress, jälle Marastu poolt tehtud. VESTA INVESTMENTS OÜ teine juhatuse liige on Olli Ensio Heinonen, kelle juhtimise all on tükk teisi Marastu poolt registreeritud äriphinguid.

 

Kõik need isikud omavad otseselt või mitte osad BOLTON REALESTATE OÜ-s, väga jõukas kinisvara firmas, hallatud Marastu poolt. Äriphingut kasutavad musta rahapesuks ka sellised eksootilised tegelased nagu Itaalia maksudest kõrvalehoidjad ja kriminaalse taustaga isikud (hiljem jõuame ka sinna). Võib olla sinna ongi kadunud OÜ ROM INVEST ja Peep Aaviksoo petetud kreditooride raha?

Või pigem see side seletab kuidas ülistatud IT riistvara edasimüüja Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ aastaid jõuas järjepidevalt jaotada miljoneid eurot “kasumit” oma osanikute vahel (kõik need olles Peep Aaviksoo kaaslased) kõva konkurentsiga turul, kus tulu on napp ja investeeringud pole sageli esinevad.

 

Jälgige ka meie järeleuurimist eesti-soome musta äri ja selle aasta poliitilise draama kohta.

Are Mirjam Mari Marastu, Santa Monica Networks and its criminal manager Margus Vaino linked to the shady bankruptcy of Peep Aaviksoo ?

59919_439847238445_2168698_n 1533720_10152286193653350_842842132_n 1614259_10200217214990671_8206792092242310054_o 10014935_1375051882779644_4830721304811978270_o

 

Remember March 2015. Everybody in Estonia was shocked by the news of the bankruptcy of Peep Aaviksoo, one of the biggest Estonian “businessmen” / politicians (for the ones who don’t remember, here is the link to the excellent Aripaev article http://www.aripaev.ee/uudised/2015/03/16/peep-aaviksoo-pankrotis).

To summarize, Peep Aavikso is currently prohibited by the law to manage a company and leaves behind him over 2.5 million Euro losses for the creditors.

 

What a surprise, at the heart of this scandalous bankruptcy, to find ROM INVEST OÜ. A 2556 EUR capital company supposed to invest and manage millions in Romania. This company was originally incorporated under the name A.P & P CONSULT OÜ thanks to the help of the infamous Mirjam-Mari Marastu, the Estonian Queen of tax evasion, money laundering and questionable corporate schemes, whose characteristic signature is the email she uses as contact for the register of companies : [email protected]

member_61

For those who do not remember our previous investigations on Marastu, the best way to be familiarized with this character is to checkout the quite impressive list of companies she is a manager of (available here : http://www.teatmik.ee/en/info/p52861-Mirjam-Mari-Marastu).

 

So ROM INVEST OÜ, once incorporated and managed using the services of Marastu (incorporation, domiciliation, secretary, and of course creative accounting, declarations and reports….) is now in liquidation, and at the heart of one of the biggest financial scandals in the recent years.

Needless to say, a thorough examination of the company’s accounting documents, its financial transactions and its correspondence by the appointed liquidator should allow all the truth (and nothing but the truth) to be made about the murky deals of this company.

Of course, the appointed trustee in bankruptcy will proceed with all the necessary diligence, and might even cast a light on the exact role of Mirjam-Mari Marastu, (who happens to be standing behind Peep Aaviksoo in a couple of other companies of his, such as ASHLEY OÜ, or even directly under the spotlight, as a member of the management board, such as BOLTON REALESTATE OÜ). Maybe these companies have benefited from the bankruptcy of ROM INVEST OÜ ? Maybe the creditors could retrieve some of their money ?

Sure, the trustee in bankruptcy will do his job, and justice will be done, swiftly !

But…wait….the trustee in bankruptcy is Kalev Mägi. Good : he is a professional trustee in bankruptcy, we can trust him !

Problem, it doesn’t sound so good : our sources signal us that Kalev Mägi is also a member of the board of a recently incorporated company (October 2015) : Eastham OÜ.

What is the email address used as a contact for this company : [email protected]

Wait….could it be…yes, you guessed right, this is the other signature email of Mirjam-Mari Marastu, which is directing to the infamous Office Services Group, headquartered Lõõtsa 8a, 11415 Tallinn, which is also the incorporation address of… ROM INVEST OÜ (and the hundred of other shady companies consisting Marastu’s business).

 

Sounds like the creditors of Peep Aavikso will never see their money ! Again a classic Marastu scheme, bravo maestro !

 

Now, for the ones who did not follow, Mirjam-Mari Marastu is, among other things, a pillar of the infamous historical first chapter (LC1, founded 1990) of the Ladies Circle Estonia, where she enjoys the company of her co-member (and secretary of the chapter) Terje Vaino (yes, the wife of Margus Vaino, manager of Santa Monica Networks), under the patronage of one of the directors of the chapter, Marje Teeriaho.

 

For the ones who do not know Marje Teeriaho (born Suurorg), she is of course the wife of Tapani Ensio Teeriaho, who not only happens to be the manager of a company providing “employment” to Marje (who is a “project manager” at INTERCAPITAL OÜ, another 2556 EUR capital creation of Marastu, hosted and managed from the same address than ROM INVEST OÜ), but also the new manager of MAMAIA OÜ, company incorporated and managed originally by Peep Aavikso.

Tapani Ensio Teeriaho is also the co-manager of a company named TL-GROUP (still a Marastu creation), which is owning 20% of Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ, the mother company of Santa Monica Networks AS.

By the way, Tapani Ensio Teeriaho is also a shareholder of Marastu’s Office Services Group OÜ , and a tax evader in the USA and in Finland, but that’s another story….

 

For the moment, let’s focus a bit on the Vaino / Teeriaho families – Peep Aavikso / Marastu connection.

All these people share the same Santa Monica Networks connection. By the way, Lõõtsa 8a, 11415 Tallinn happens to be the address of Santa Monica Networks, and, let’s not forget, of the now defunct and bankrupt ROM INVEST OÜ, whose trustee in bankruptcy is also installed in the same office. Don’t we smell something rotten here?

 

Doesn’t it stink even more if we underline the fact that Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ is not, as many could believe, an IT company. No, no, it is a finance and insurance company. Well, it doesn’t of course operate with a license for these activitie), but it claims to be a financial services and insurance company.

 

As this wasn’t enough, the Latvian (how interesting and logical for a mainly Estonian group !) manager of Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ, Justas Dargužas, is also co-manager of another interesting company (yes, you’ve guessed again, same address, Marastu again…) : VESTA INVESTMENTS OÜ. The other manager is Olli Ensio Heinonen, who is also managing quite a good number of other Marastu incorporated companies.

 

All these people happen to be owning shares, directly and indirectly, into BOLTON REALESTATE OÜ, a very wealthy real estate company managed by Marastu, where many other exotic characters, such as Italian criminals and tax evaders, launder their dirty money (we’ll come back to this later). Maybe this is where went the funds of the poor defrauded creditors of ROM INVEST OÜ and Peep Aavikso ?

 

Or maybe this connection explains why Santa Monica Networks GROUP OÜ, a glorified reseller of IT hardware, managed for years to redistribute to its shareholders (all of them being Peep Aavikso associates) consistently millions of euros of “profit” on a market where competition is tough, margins are scarce and investments not frequent ?

 

Stay tuned, while we investigate another side of the dirty business of the Estonian / Finn criminal business / politics drama of the year.

Hansaworld / Hansaraama / Standard Hansa : the story of the Swedish scam made in Estonia

Recent rebranding of Hansaraama to Standard Hansa made us investigate more this company and the products as a rebranding is always suspicious.

 

Upon our investigations, the business is operated from Sweden with a USA based company, developers and customers dept in Estonia.

 

CEO : Karl Bohlin  just get an idea of the who is behind

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXYLPTonkvY

 

“even my mother which never really understood what I do”

 

we tried to understand what they are doing and the answer is :

 

 

1)   they are providing a crap software, full of security holes, outside international standards which fails and generates looses of datas

2)   they are no providing any support and even insulting their clients

3)   they are cancelling licenses without legal ground

4)   they are cheating at least the Swedish tax board (Skatteverket) and US IRS

 

 

1)   Upon customers and experts reports (from Complus Consulting OU Estonia), Hansaraama and Hansaworld which are used in Estonia to handle accounting datas of thousand of companies is full of security holes. Accounting companies which provide remote access to their Hansa servers are putting the accounting datas at risk, the software is NOT PROTECTED AGAINST BRUT FORCE password attacks. Thousand of accounting datas of companies are almost public.

Hansaraama and Hansaworld is sniffing accounting datas and is sending them to their servers, Windows client is making permanently requests to their servers.

The software architecture is made with an internal database which fails numerous of time and get corrupted (server hard reboot or disk full) without the possibility to repair the database, even MS Access 10 years ago has a repair function. In case of cancellation of license you can loose access to your accounting datas without ANY possibility to access them.

2)   Support in Estonia returns you to read the documentation, they do know that the software is a crap and that there is nothing to do, they even don’t want to help… incredible. The management board is insulting clients, looks like the Swedish alcoholic Karl Bohlin doesn’t like to see the truth…We got report of ex employees which confirmed us everthing.

3)   Reporting your unsatisfaction of the product may result in a cancellation of license with no legal ground, we got reported several customers cancelled for non respect of the license without any explanation, then they explain to their customers that they must pay more (extortion) or go on court against a USA fictive company without office.. good luck they don’t have any asset and there is no money to take there in the USA.

4)   The business is operated from Sweden on the name of Hansaword USA Inc, commercial propositions, agreements, newsletters, legal department are sent from Sweden….according to the ip addresses of the emails :

cinco.canit.se: Host static-213-115-173-164.sme.bredbandsbolaget.se [213.115.173.164]

they are even using fake addresses and redirected phone numbers in different countries, for their virtual legal dept for example :

They are so operating from Sweden without paying income taxes and VAT using an offshore company which is also used to be able to cheat the customers which suffers damages with their software, there is no way to get anything in the US against them. We have been reading tax fraud report made to Skatteverket with all proofs of execution of business on offshore company, we suspect that in the following months a criminal case will be opened against all those people.

As well in the US they have bee reported to the IRS for tax fraud as they are not paying any taxes on their business made with USA companies.

 

 

Conclusion:

Estonia is more time used to host a scam from Scandinavia, we have only 1 advice, run away from that kind of company as well for the quality of the products but also because they are going to disappear for sure putting all the client without any solution and their accounting datas at huge risk.

 

Corrupt MTA agents Oscar Õun, Andres Jermošin, Kristi Aalik and assault a foreign company

Imagine a country where agents of the tax office, using their position, are entering into the premises of a company claiming they are performing a control.

Of course, access is given to them, because that’s the law. Isn’t it ?

But in fact, it appears that these agents are not here for the company, but for some employees of a service company (Laketide OU), who happen to be in the premises at this time.

 

Without no authorization, no legal grounds, these agents are now going to search the premises of the company, interrogate the persons which are present……

At no point in time these agents are going to produce a document authorizing their illegal search.

 

You’re not dreaming, this is Estonia 2013. Corrupt agents are :

 

Oscar Õun [email protected]

Andres Jermošin [email protected]

Kristi Aalik [email protected]

 

Check out the video, it is appalling…..

 

 

Bad luck for them, the company occupying the premises is not an Estonian company, but a foreign one……so the classic little Estonian fiesta allowing corrupt agents to do whatever they please without respecting their own Laws might not go through this time….

 

Our sources have mentioned to us that an official complaint had been addressed by this company to their Embassy in Estonia.

 

This is already frightening. What is even more frightening is the fact that this operation seems to be an enterprise of intimidation of an Estonian company owned by foreigners. This company is owned some 400 000 € by the fraudulent company Santa Monica Networks, which has already been mentioned several time on this site. The Estonian company, Laketide OU, has sent a bankruptcy warning to Santa Monica Networks, whose management includes Martin Arva, who has family members working at the legal department of MTA. Surprise, the day after, it is members of this same legal department, which are going voluntarily to the premises of a client of Laketide, claiming to investigate Laketide.

 

Obviously, these individuals, agents Oscar ÕunAndres Jermošin and Kristi Aalik, are corrupt and are rendering service to Santa Monica Networks…..

 

When will it stop ? Will MTA take measures against these agents ?

Margus Vaino Santa Monica AS Director – criminal cases opened

We have received information, that Margus Vaino, Santa Monica AS director has several criminal cases lately opened against him after he tried to racket and extort large sums of money from a foreign investor; he has committed several of private property invasions and harmed physically the mentioned businessman in front of a number of witnesses.

Definitely, during this period of crisis, all the ways seem to be good to make money in Estonia. After fraudulent bankruptcies with the shamelessly hijacked assets just like it happens each day in Estonia, it seems that old good mafia methods are again becoming popular.

Margus Vaino does not seem at his first time to get protection because his enterprise seems to be a supplier of Estonian secret police.

Invest Estonia investigates for you and we will certainly keep you informed – another dirty story that does not encourage investment into this imitation of a civilized country.

Margus Vaino Santa Monica AS direktor – kriminaalmenetlus algatatud

Meieni jõudis info, et Margus Vaino, Santa Monica AS direktori vastu on hiljuti algatud krimnaalmenetlust seoses sellega, et ta on teinud mitu väljapressimiskatset.

Eelmainitud isik nõudis välismaiselt investorilt suurt rahasummat, ta olevat samuti mitmekordselt tunginud eraomadisse ning tekitanud füüsilist kahju sellele isikule mitme pealtnägija juuresolekul.

Näib tõesti, et Eestis on majanduskriisi perioodil «papi lõikamiseks» kõik vahendid head. Pärast petlikke pankrotistumisi häbiväärselt varastatud aktiividega, mis on igapäevane asi, on nähtavasti head vanad maffia meetodid on jälle moes.

See pole, vastavalt saadavatele andmetele, Margus Vaino esimene kord kaitset saada – tema firma on KAPO tarnija.

Invest Estonia uurib asja Teie jaoks ning me lubame hoida Teid kursis – veel üks räpane lugu, mis ei ajeta investeerima sellesse tsiviliseeritud riigi imitatsiooni.

German trade official: Estonia has its problems, but who doesn’t

Maren Diale-Schellschmidt, head of the German-Baltic Chamber of Commerce (AHK), says that foreign investors have some problems in Estonia, but they should not be exaggerated.

In an interview to

Danish investor: it’s a scam!

Karsten Ree, major Danish investor and a shareholder of FjordFresh Holding, developer of the Audru fish farm project iN Estonia, claims that the company’s former executives Thorben Nielsen and Alar Oppar were in scam against him. According to Nielsen, it was Ree who failed to meet his obligations, wrote

Coca-Cola shifts production to Lithuania

Coca-Cola Baltics has confirmed that it has shut down its production facility in Estonia, and has moved it to Lithuania. The company said it has not produced any Coca-Cola brands in Estonia since end-April, leading to the loss of 63 jobs in the country.

The company said production could be re-launched in Estonia if a new factory should be built here.

BBN reported in December that Coca-Cola HBC, the Coca-Cola bottler in Estonia, planned to transfer production and that the company plans to build a new plant in Latvia. “In the meantime,
