CASE STUDY - GREY SCREEN FUNDS
Bachir El Nakib, Senior Consultant Compliance Alert (LLC)
31st March 2015
"Grey Screen" Cash or Credit Instruments are normally funds, or assets derived from funds, that are "restricted" by reference to their history and origin etc. In many cases they are arise from "assets" that are controlled or supervised by, for example, the Central Bank of a Country, the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve, the ECB, etc. or are derived from previous Placement or Trading profits or have been "restricted" or "de-monetised" ie: removed from normal use because of their historic origins or ownership etc.
In other cases "Inter Bank Screen" or "Grey Screen" Cash/Instruments arise because assets or funds have been placed on long term deposit within Banking Institutions or Central Banks and the Investor & Institution have agreed a basis for allowing the funds or assets based on these funds/assets to be utilized by others for credit purposes for a limited period and under controlled conditions.
The practical position is that in general these funds or assets are only verifiable under certain "Screen based inter bank procedures" and not in other and rather more normal ways and additionally can normally only be "blocked" for transactions by "Screen based inter bank procedures" etc...
These types of procedures are not available to the majority of Traders and also not popular with those that are capable of carrying out the necessary procedures and in most cases are declined for a variety of reasons related either to the Asset, the Beneficiary, the control over the asset, or the fact that co-operation and commitments are required from the Asset Owner, the Beneficiary, The Deposit Bank and possibly others that may not be readily forthcoming.
Certain "Grey Screen" assets cannot be traded at all because of the reasons for the assets being "on screen" and the levels of authorizations required to trade them or because no authorizations are available. Certain other "Grey Screen" assets may only be traded with certain high level approvals by traders with special clearances. Other Inter Bank Screen assets may be considered as referred to above. In all cases a full and detailed file will normally be required before any indications can be given.
As indicated above in most cases the Screen Beneficiary of the Asset is rarely the Legal Owner of the underlying Assets and is often rarely able to supply all of the background information required and in many cases is unable to "control" the asset or ensure that the controller of the asset co-operates fully with the trader's requirements to actually engage the asset.
The grey screen transaction is actual called inter-bank-grey-screen transaction. This is the easy way for the banks and large institution and the governments to send money, bank instruments.
"Bank A" puts all the information on the screen and generates special code for "Bank B" to log into the screen with the special codes and then download the information. It is all done electronically.
The Lord James of Blackheth Case Study
Lord James of Blackheath - a respected British industrialist and former senior adviser to the Conservative Party (passed away Feb 29th, 2012, he passed away only two weeks after he exposed a scam being targeted by a "government who should know better" that involved the movement of $15,000,000,000,000.00 from the Federal Reserve. This exposure came around the same time that and another .
Lord James of Blackheath has fallen for an old scam that’s already documented on the New York Federal Reserve’s website. The name Blackheath brings up, Yohannes Riyadi, is listed in a scam from 2007.
The Federal Reserve is aware of a fraudulent scam involving individuals using the names Yohannes Riyadi and/or Wilfredo Saurin, or persons claiming to be representatives of these two men. In a typical version of this scam, Mr. Riyadi and/or his delegates falsely claim that they have on deposit with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York several U.S. Treasury Checks issued to Mr. Riyadi amounting to billions of dollars.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has been contacted by several brokers and financial institutions worldwide inquiring about the validity of this fraudulent account documentation, which is being offered as collateral for lines of credit or other types of asset based financing. The fraudulent scheme includes multiple documents which purport to have the signatures of various Federal Reserve officials, including Chairman Ben Bernanke.
In some instances, individuals involved in this fraudulent scheme claim to have met with Federal Reserve officials and claim to have verified that the alleged account is in order. We have also learned that the fraud may include the purchase of certain documents by the introducing brokers.
If you have information regarding this fraud please contact either Robert Amenta, Special Investigator at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, or Erik Rosenblatt, Senior Special Agent at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
It’s possible that some of Lord Blackheath’s documentation is legitimate, but until it’s properly verified there’s no way of telling.
Lord James Blackheath claims to have gathered documentation of a possible monumental financial fraud involving HSBC, RBS, the American Federal Reserve, JP Morgan Chase, the IMF and a man going by the name of Yohannes Riyadi.
Speaking to a handful of his peers in the House of Lords on February 16th, Blackheath called for an investigation in to three alleged financial transactions of $5 Trillion each, with fraudulent backing of 750,000 metric tonnes of gold, an impossibility since that amount of gold has never been mined.
The purported operation began in April and May 2009, with three transfers of $5 trillion to UK bank HSBC. This was then passed on to the Royal Bank of Scotland, which taxpayers were forced to bailout only a few months later following the financial collapse.
says the Lord.
or so the story goes.
Blackheath cites a document dated February 2006, which allegedly shows the minutes of a meeting where then Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, and then President of the New York Fed Timothy Geithner, as well as representatives of the International Monetary Fund, signed off for the New York Fed to give Mr. Riyadi a token cash payment of $500 million, to buy out Bonds held by Riyadi. 750,000 metric tonnes of gold are allegedly backing these bonds, totaling $15 trillion. This of course is ludicrous as nowhere near that amount of gold has ever been mined.
There is clearly a monumental fraud going on here. The gold clearly doesn’t exist, the bonds therefore are clearly not real. It’s easy to pass this off as a complete fabrication. However according to Blackheath the $5 trillion transactions, totaling $15 trillion, do actually appear on the books of HSBC and RBS!
asks his peers.
Perhaps to line their own pockets?
Lord Blackheath then noted that the Federal Reserve audit review from July of 2010 lists 20 banks from all over the world, who have a total of $16.115 trillion in outstanding loans with 0% interest. This would seem to correlate with the mysterious $15 trillion.
1) There has been a massive piece of money laundering committed by a major government which ought to know better and that it has effectively undermined the integrity of the British bank the Royal Bank of Scotland, in doing so.
2) The Federal Reserve has gone rouge.
3) This is an extraordinarily elaborate fraud which but which has been prepared in order to provide a threat to one government or more if they don’t pay them off.
It should be noted that none of Blackheath’s documentation has been independently verified and it’s difficult to determine what (if anything) has taken place. He is calling for an official investigation to see exactly where the fraud lies. That being said if fraud has taken place, anything official may turn out to be a whitewash anyway.
Blackheath first came to public attention when he spoke of a mysterious who was said to be looking to buy off Britain’s national debt.
It’s possible he’s a crazy fantasist or simply falling for elaborate hoaxes. Yohannes Riyadi does not appear to exist under that name and the $16 trillion of Fed bailouts are widely recognized as simply the Fed creating money out of thin air like it usually does. It’s also possible he’s being played for ulterior motives by people that do actually have some kind of influence. Either way, with what’s at stake his claims shouldn’t simply be ignored, and a proper investigation, even just to rule him deluded would be a good idea.
COMMENTS TO “LORD BLACKHEATH EXPOSES POSSIBLE MONUMENTAL FINANCIAL FRAUD”
Strategic Overview: Examples of US Agency use of the London and EU Banking Markets for Wealth Creation, without Congressional Oversight or Supervision.
The purpose of this overview is to highlight the scale and depth of use of EU Markets by US Agencies and Political entities, bypassing Congress, avoiding or evading Taxes.
They are exposed breaching contractual agreements with trusting Principal Funders, then Laundering profits or proceeds earned though a labyrinth of Trusts,
Foundations and Fiduciary fronts. Governments simply do not understand the latitude Banks apply to cross trade in Off Balance sheet, Grey Screen or Black Screen trading. Ponzi money is accrued in vast amounts, all bypassing Revenue collection, and all spent. Derivatives issued and cross traded now exceed in excess of $600 Trillion dollars with no possible Insurer of last resort. Warren Buffet has declared them to be the ultimate Financial Weapon of mass destruction. Neither Governments, nor Banking regulators, understand any of it to an adequate level to contain and eliminate the risks.
The loss to each Sovereign nations Revenue Commissioners, including HMG, is considerable. The lack of oversight risks the perpetration of sophisticated crimes, as has been evidenced already.
Just a few cases will be exampled. The cases merit a thorough review to determine thereafter the real extent and scale of the problems. The lack of US Congressional oversight allows identified US Agencies to fund secret Black Operations activities, with all the leading ethical, moral or criminal implications hidden. Major funds are being accrued in London without transparency or withholding taxes visible as settled, or even intent to do so as demonstrated by the total circumvention of Revenue declarations.
The scale of UK and EU Revenue avoidance witnessed to date is extensive. As is the identified level of personal wealth generated by certain identified by complicit US Political entities, operating in complicity with Lead EU Bankers of notoriety.
The scale of Capital recovery once investigated can accrue a very substantial contribution for our own Exchequers account. One classic case alone, the Edward Falcone Trading Programs orchestrated by Josef Ackermann of Deutsch Bank, can recover so much tax visibly evaded, as would resolve our total Defence over run budgets. In addition to exposing Agency linked parties being operated inside UK jurisdiction enabling our own Intelligence Agencies to monitor use of funds and transgressions. The reputation and integrity of the London Capital Markets necessitates protection and close supervision.
The cases identified as examples alone, will allow skilled and competent investigating analysts to follow the money trail and recover substantial capital as Proceeds of Crime or Tax Evasion. There are sensitive Political connotations, but history is littered with exposed cases and hindsight regret, all perfectly avoidable. Significant transgressions are evidenced within our Capital Markets, with high risk connotations for the UK if not examined and sanitized. Mr Falcone has offered to provide access to all his files and to fully cooperate with any UK and EU investigating officers.
Media exposure is a constant risk.
Our own Agencies need to understand the extent of financial market penetration. Especially so having identified now named account holders at Banks such as Barclays, who then route funds onwards to the CIA, or Bush /Romney etc as has happened with the Falcone trading profits. The extent of cross market penetration by US Agencies and certain compromised Bankers such as Josef Ackermann of Deutsch Bank merits independent investigation. Especially so his network of operations involving British and mainland European banks merits thorough research and clinical analysis with particular emphasis on his cross CIA and other US Agency Bank Program funding links and the extent of his relationships with Bush Sr and other US Political associations. A sophisticated operating web was designed and activated by parties cross linked with FRB NY, fully understanding the capability and blind spots of the Global Bank Transfer and Bank investment systems.
A $15 Trillion dollar total fund was activated, split into 3 x $5 Trillion dollar transfers routed on the instructions of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, (FRB NY) operating with its own clandestine agenda. By phased investigations we have been able to identify and expose the links and transgressions, revealing in turn fundamental questions of probity and potential exposure. Suffice it to say, our own authorities, having ascertained the latter Gold a holdings being used to underwrite the issuance of the transfers declared it as bogus based upon Gold amounts later published, or on bank denials post events. Yet transfer after transfer continued successfully repeating. No one repeats a failed venture.
They transferred on records we hold times and a further sideways transfers which Bernanke himself, Chairman of the actual US Federal Reserve appeared for the first time in the network when he personally flew in to meet with HSBC and enforce side issue transfers to a declared Homelands Security Agency operation? different Banks transfers are on record as taking place as evidenced. With respect, if the first had failed, it would hardly have been repeated, again, then again.
The only banking operation large enough to perpetrate this would be FRB NY.
Its use by Pure heart needs to be determined, but it all transpired at the time President Obama faced a $15 Trillion dollar shortfall in the US budget, which miraculously was resolved without due explanation. Marlon McCall has openly attested that the company he alleges to be the attorney for Pure heart Investments SA. operating an account as LWR/ GOT, Pure hearts a, is a subsidiary of the US Homeland Security Agency, as is indicated by their use of interbank transfers using United Nations Homeland codes on SWIFT transfers.
McCall introduced Wilfredo Saurin into the equation. Saurin appears extensively on many global Diligence warning lists with a high level of notoriety, including also on the official US Federal Reserve Scam warning site itself.
McCall attests that Saurin is operated and managed as an Agent for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and is Agency protected accordingly. If so it would explain a lot. Saurin approached the true Bank of Indonesia special BI / US Treasury FRB NY sub account holder, Yohannes Riyadi in Jakarta some 2 years or so ago. We have evidenced the account holder, supported by a BI reference from the now Indonesian Deputy President, and a copy of Riyadi’s highly confidential US Treasury Federal Reserve Bank of New York contract set up to Bank Program trade using the Pentagon managed Grey Screens against Riyadi’s inherited Custodial stewardship of 700mts of gold left in Trust by his Presidential grandfather.
These are old Chinese dynasty assets. Even from the moment Mr Riyadi signed over custodial use of his assets, the $500M dollar cross transfer to the account FRB NY set up for him to be paid on signature via a Singapore bank, failed o arrive. Numerous signatories to the contract are evidenced. Riyadi has amassed a vast paper value asset running now into substantial $ Trillions on the US Treasury FRB Treasury Cheque Grey Screen controlled accounts.
This is primarily a Ponzi money asset as part of the Pentagon and US Treasury / FRB NY self-monetizing system run beyond reachor the awareness of Congressional oversight. FRB NY, for the first time in its century history, was audited last year. They showed then a c$16 Trillion deficit, and an extent of cross lending to British and mainland European banks on a scale which merits questions. Riyadi was asked by Saurin for permission to use his FRB NY account operated within BI Jakarta.
His reason given to Riyadi was to “Save the US Dollar!” Riyadi complied without understanding the details or what was about to be perpetrated. Using the Pureheart accounts as the receiving operating entities, 3 x $5T transfers were instructed by FRB NY to be routed by JP Morgan Chase via HSBC to RBS to nominated Pureheart accounts. They were supported by an FRB NY directive to transfer against the supporting asset of an alleged Gold au holding which had been creatively accommodated by BI to hold a convenient and alleged 750,000 metric tons of Gold au used to underpin the dollar transfer.
Saurin would fail all KYC account allocation rules once Diligence checked. UK banks have questions to answer.
Saurin has no Gold.
The BI account, against which this Fraud was predicated, holds just 700 metric tons. Riyadi himself has never claimed more. This was a Saurin FRB NY operation with complicit banks, further cross transfers were instructed as part payments for HSBC to make to Pure heartin both euros and dollars which appear to have invoked the personal appearance of Bernanke flying to London to pressure HSBC to release.$15 Trillion has been created, supported by a clearly false, non-existent asset by an FRB NY Cabal operation for the cross benefit of a US Agency.
Where are those funds now?
Once receiving terminals are scrutinised they can be traced.
Who holds title to false money now raised?
Who is now Debt obligated for redemption?
Is RBS, a British part owned bank?
McCall has made a number of allegations which at least merit independent Professional investigation. He has alluded to previous senior Governmental entities having “known” and accommodated UK participation.
The Beneficiaries of those funds need to be identified, as also their use?
Cross combining similar aspects of the use and control of the Falcone program accounts within the UK and EU Banking systems, and the extensive labyrinth of Offshore Bank accounts used to evade taxes, co combined with the sheer scale of transfers for CIA benefit, raises numerous probity issues.
There are many Blogging sites tracking and releasing allegations. Mainstream Media exposure at some stage may be inevitable with potential Global consequences. The perceived integrity of the London Capital Markets is only part of the risk equation we face. $15 Trillion dollars have been raised by an identifiable fraud. Their whereabouts are currently unknown. As is their current use, who is benefitting and to what use are they being applied with no Congressional oversight or supervision?
What is our Duty of Care obligation to inform Congress?
What is the scale of US Agency penetration and use of our UK and EU capital markets?
If the Falcone issue alone can allow us sufficient Capital recovery to underpin our own Defence Budgets shortfalls, is this worth pursuing?
Falcone’s investigators have identified well in excess of $1 Trillion having been accrued in profits, giving a combined UK and EU Withholding Tax recovery target of over $200B with potentially $300B being attainable. This entraps many named, senior US Political entities and is now becoming ever more public via growing internet exposure.
