Russian billionaire dies
About a month ago, the former co-owner of RosEvroBank was hospitalized with cerebrovascular accident. According to the Base, he died on March 6.
Grishin is known for selling his mansion in Santa Barbara to Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle for $15 million.
Grishin also claimed that he almost brought the Russian economy to an economic collapse in the 90s, having come up with an advice note scheme. In 2018, turning to the then head of the United States Trump with a request to grant American citizenship, Grishin stated that he stole so much money in Estonia and Russia that he could not even name the exact amount, because no one knows.
– Many people think that it was the Chechens who came up with the scheme with the advice note. This is wrong. I invented it. It was the biggest scam ever because no one knew exactly how much money was stolen. I found the right people in the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and in Estonian banks. On behalf of the Estonian banks, I made a duplicate advice note, as if the original had been lost. The amount in the advice note was written the one I wanted. It was completely fake and was not backed up by anything,” Sergey Grishin said.
