90 weeks ago 8 investors in our group had sent 6-digits of BUSD funding to StableFund. None was refunded and the fraudulent project has "rug-pulled" (i.e., money taken; websites and social media channels downed; etc.). Public blockchains show many millions of dollars worth of BUSD were sent from thousands of crypto-wallets. StableFund seems to have been a masterful, "long-con" crypto-scam.

"Did anyone see the [ Day v. Datta 4New, Ltd. ] case that was overturned?

"[Varun] openly scammed in 4New [Ltd., company] and an investor tried to sue but judge sadly sided with Datta. Emboldening him to scam again. This is why I think [Aischylos] was cautious to reveal identity until conviction secured. Datta knows no one in their right mind would invest again in him due to the well publicised scam history about him. Hence I suspect the whole “Michael Ray” thing.

From the PDF -- Case 1:22-cv-22572-JLK Document 1 Entered on FLSD Docket 08/12/2022

"13. Datta is a United Kingdom citizen and has a Florida residence at 3131 NE 7th Avenue, Unit 4304, Miami, FL 33137. 14. Sharma is a citizen of Florida residing at 10201 Sheila Court, Wellington, FL 33414. 15. 4NEW is a limited company formed under the laws of Britain and is a citizen of the United Kingdom for purposes of diversity jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C.§ 1332, with its principal place of business at 6 Lanark Square, 2nd Floor, London, UK E14 SRE. ... 18. 4NEW has its primary office at Sheraton Skyline Hotel Bath Road, Harlington, Hayes, England UB3 5BP.

The horrible truth gets horribler by the day.

Hindustan Times: "Liquor dealer's son held for duping bank" (Nov 2012) -- Bank fraud. Forgery. Auto theft.

Daily Mirror: "GREEN CRYPTO SCHEME SINKS DEEP IN THE RED" (Jan 2020) -- "I received a strange and barely literate email when I last wrote about "entrepreneur" Varun Datta. His company 4New Limited had raised £34million from investors, who wanted to know what had happened to their money..."

A new summary youtube reveals a bit more information:

Stablefund - Is Michael / Ray this man?

20 May 2023 --

"Raychael Kiedos", the leader of the StableFund crypto-scam StableFund, appears to have been identified. Video below (mirrored from youtube) compares "Raychael Kiedos" scammer's voice with suspect. The video below also claims matching voiceprint analyses. Moreover, Daily Mail India in 2014 posted this about "Varun Dutta" which almost exactly matches M.O. while differing by only one letter in the name (article also includes a picture for identification).

Keep up the pressure of public exposure by filing fraud cases.

When you think of how smooth and convincing Raychael was — an highly-polished, coldly kniving psychopath without empathy or care for others — you should think of that trash-heap "savior" in SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE movie, the guy who smilingly, steadily lured the poor orphans with Coca-Cola and food and shelter and false promises of becoming super-star singers — just before he chloroformed them and then destroyed their eyeballs using molten lead in spoons.

THAT is the same psychopathy of Raychael and his #2 accomplice Holger Sochaus. It is a profound, deep disconnection from humanity.

What psychopaths fear most is public exposure; presumably, this is because they inherently know there is something deeply wrong with them, and they are afraid of being found-out by the tribe as the ramifications can be quite grim.

Filing fraud cases and publishing the data is the surest way to cause reaction that may lead to recovery of funds.

First Charged Criminal Fraud Case Involving a DeFi Ponzi Scheme

Crypto Criminals can be prosecuted, brought to justice -- FILE YOUR COMPLAINT IN YOUR COUNTRY NOW -- this has proven to be the only action that has caused any reaction by the criminals.

Update 21 Feb 2023 --

Another case raised: UK: NFRC230205685156

Group effort noticed by the thieves.

"I am working behind the scenes to get these funds released so they can be paid out." -- No doubt this is 100% true; however, the lie-by-ommission (typical of psychopaths), is who gets the payout... in this case IT WILL NOT BE THE INVESTORS.

StableFund and it directly-related, confidence-building precursors amount to a long-con, well-coordinated fraud involving at least two pathological liars.

KEEP REPORTING FRAUD, this is the only reasonable action that will cause results.

Nothing else done so far by anyone has generated such response from the thieves.
