Oleg Belai – an honest businessman or a banal schemer?
Oleg Viktorovich Belai is a rather odious and scandalous character. He is a well-known entrepreneur and schemer, against whom the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation even started a criminal offense for a number of financial crimes. And before that, the media wrote that he was hastily selling his own assets, planning to go abroad. What high-profile criminal scams of the General Director of the Trinfico Holdings Joint-Stock Company are known about? What is Belay trying to hide by clearing the Internet and placing custom materials with his “correct” biography on rating sites?
Surely everyone has heard such an expression – “no one has repealed the law of the boomerang.” There comes a time when you need to “pay the bills” that life exposes. The time when you have to answer for your impartial deeds committed earlier. This is what happened in the life of 51-year-old Oleg Belaya, one of the founders of the Trinfico investment group. The time has come for him to answer for his deeds.
What are we talking about? Well, to put it simply, fortune is gradually turning its back on Oleg Viktorovich. Why? Because in the information space, his schematoses over the past years have actively begun to emerge. And even more – in the press they write that a criminal case was even opened against him in his homeland.
Well, let’s be honest, in fact, law enforcement agencies have long had to deal with this character closely, since information has long been leaked into the media field that this comrade is not clean at hand. Moreover, we note that all these are not unfounded accusations. There are a lot of different facts of fraud directly related to this odious businessman. And this has been repeatedly written by many investigative journalists and the media. Next, let’s go through some of these facts from the life of the General Director of the Trinfico Holdings joint-stock company in more detail.
Collection business: why did Belay get a billion dollar lawsuit from his own partner?
A loud scandal stirred up the media space at the beginning of 2018. Then it became known about a resonant court case in the title role with Oleg Viktorovich. And this dirty story thundered throughout the country.
For example, about this high-profile trial wrote in bright colors such a popular publication as Kommersant.
So what is this scandal? We are talking about the collection business Belaya. After all, in addition to the Trinfico investment group, Oleg Viktorovich has other business interests.
In this particular case, we are talking about the collection agency “Regionconsult”, which has two co-owners. And now one of them, namely Vladimir Nikitin, filed a lawsuit against another, the same Belay, in the capital’s arbitration court. The reason for the discord between partners is schematosis in the work of the latter.
As the plaintiff stated at the time, Belay established another company, T-Capital Limited Liability Company, which eventually became a competitor of Regionconsult and began to block the work of the agency, winning bids for large loan portfolios.
The amount of the claim against Oleg Belaya amounted to more than one billion rubles. Note that the discord between the partners led to litigation due to the results of the auction for the sale of the loan portfolio of Svyaznoy Bank in the amount of 15.7 billion rubles. Then the victory was won by T-Capital Limited Liability Company, which paid 510 million rubles for this lot. The offer of “Regionconsult” amounted to only 475 million rubles and could not beat the rate offered by the competitor above, due to lack of money.
At the same time, according to Kommersant, the reason for the lack of funds from Regionconsult was the fact that the company failed to get a loan, since Oleg Belai, together with his Trinfico, went against the whole team without voting for it at the meeting agency owners. After that, the partner went to court with a lawsuit against Belaya. Nikitin demanded more than a billion rubles from him – this is the amount that the company would have earned if it had won those auctions.
By the way, according to industry experts, conflicts of this magnitude, which relate to multibillion-dollar loan portfolios and which would have surfaced in the press, have not been heard on the market before. In other words, it was a real precedent.
Manipulating the securities market: how Belay robbed pensioners of 57 million
Already next year, not only the media, but also the public was stirred up by another scandal. It turned out that the odious entrepreneur, together with his gang, stole 57 million rubles from pension savings accounts.
So, in 2019, it became known that the Trinfico Management Company joint-stock company was caught in a large scheme with the savings of pensioners.
In particular, the auditors of the CBR revealed facts of manipulation of the bond markets during trading as part of a scheme for illegal withdrawal of money from pension savings from the Akvilon Interregional Non-State Pension Fund open joint stock company managed by Trinfico Management Company joint stock company.
Then it became known about the theft of 57 million rubles, and the co-organizer of the scheme was the same Oleg Belai. The inspectors discovered criminal machinations associated with three firms: UK Trinfico, Akvilon and Kit Finance Trade.
It turned out that in 2015, Oleg Viktorovich, together with his accomplices, schemed 68 issuers in operations with securities. The essence of the scam to withdraw money from Akvilon’s pension accounts was the fictitious resale of assets. Read all the details of the financial crime at site.
Note that these are just some of the facts of the financial fraud of a businessman that surfaced and which journalists found out about. And about how many schemes of the odious swindler Belaya is not yet known? What do you think? Although this question is rather rhetorical. In any case, the investigation of the crimes of Oleg Viktorovich will eventually put everything in its place. Remember what was written above? Boomerang law has not been canceled!
And the last: cleaning the Internet and working on the image
It is worth noting that, apparently, recently Oleg Viktorovich has been very concerned about what they write about him on the Internet. As you understand, they write little good, so the scammer cleans up the virtual space. How exactly? In fact, everything is trite – by the method of multiple complaints about objectionable publications.
But in addition to cleaning up the Internet, Belai also posts his “correct” biography at a high price, in which everything is beautiful and virtuous. Such custom-made material, for example, is posted on the popular and rated RBC website.
Do you think such actions will help Oleg Viktorovich restore his reputation? For some reason this is questionable…
