Today sees the publication of what anyone in the know [and with half a brain] has known from the outset, that Qoin is a con. It was officially declared bankrupt by the Dutch courts on 29 March 2016. In this post I help creditors deal with the two conmen Rob van Hilten and Edgar Kampers who are wriggling like eels in a desperate but futile attempt to try to save the Qoin name and brand. Way, way, too late boys! I also slam IRTA’s nepotism and on behalf of the honest ones in the industry, give this supposedly industry watchdog [but in reality corrupt, greedy, purveyors of evil] a justly deserved single finger salute.
Qoin was the brainchild of Dutchmen Edgar Kampers and his willing accomplice Rob van Hilten, typical conmen with the gift-of-the-gab, who got lucky and then fell from grace believing their own rhetoric, and thinking that they were smart. In a maze of companies and foundations spanning more than a decade, Rob and Edgar fleeced primarily the European public purse, but increasingly private investors, particularly through crowdfunding.
In 2014 I called “FRAUD” on their Tradeqoin business and gave ample warning of the scam. Some heeded my warning and avoided inevitable losses but many didn’t. More fool on them for listening to and believing the hype and utter BS from the Qoin con artists.
I incurred the wrath of IRTA in the process, specifically IRTA’s Executive Director Ron Whitney who stated that IRTA and UC’s position was that my blogging lacked credibility, and Annette Riggs who called me an outright liar in an online industry forum. Other high-profile industry players too chipped in and attacked my credibility.
In 2015 I commenced writing a series of posts in preparation of publishing my book The Qoin Con. In a series of posts I first explained who these conmen were; I showed the world [in real-time] as they conducted their fraud in full view of the world, establishing fact after fact and drawing the only conclusion possible . . . Qoin was simply HOT AIR!
Not only that I advised Creditors of the REAL state of the companies affairs proving trading while insolvent PLUS revealed behind the scenes attitudes and approaches in actual internal documents coming directly from the lair of the conmen, sufficiently damning proof of immoral conduct that bankruptcy was inevitable.
Just published today is the following bankruptcy notice.
Foundation Positive Incentive Techniques And Systems
On 31-03-2016’s Foundation Positive Incentive Techniques And Systems hodn Points to Amsterdam ( Noord-Holland ) was declared bankrupt by the court in Amsterdam. As a curator appointed mr. FGH chips . The insolvency number of this case is F.13 / 16/163. The (main) activity of Stichting Positive Incentive Techniques And Systems ‘s architects, engineers and technical design and advice; inspection and control.
There are (still) no reports available.
For the record, this is the parent entity/company of Qoin as can be viewed at Symbid’s fraudulent crowdfunding campaign FAQ:
De nieuwe juridische structuur van Qoin wordt momenteel ingevuld. Qoin BV is opgericht door en volledig eigendom van de stichting POsitive INcentive Techniques and Systems, die in het dagelijks leven de naam Qoin gebruikt en van waaruit wij de afgelopen 4 jaar hebben ondernomen
Rob van Hilten
Google Translate: The new legal structure Qoin is currently being completed. Qoin BV was founded and wholly owned by the foundation Positive Incentive Techniques and Systems, which uses the name Qoin in everyday life and from which we have undertaken over the last 4 years
One should take a large degree of caution over claims made by proven conmen, ESPECIALLY when I have proven them to be skilled at moving, concealing and stripping assets, capable and natural liars and deceivers; and desperate to save their sorry a*ses from the clink.
A further point of note is that there are (still) no reports! Typical. Investigators simply have to read my blogs and order the book The Qoin Con. I’ve already done the work – it’s all HOT AIR – no assets; huge liabilities and a long sorry story of deception.
In The Netherlands a court can declare bankruptcy when two (or more) creditors seek such a declaration. This has happened in Qoin’s case, and this is highly significant, for while Edgar and Rob have had multiple bankruptcies in the past, in every other case (that I know of) they DECLARED bankruptcy and were thus in control of their assets before the event occurred.
Having bankruptcy declared UPON them by a court will hurt the two conmen for they will now have little realistic chance of hiding or retaining assets and investigators can claw back to transactions undertaken while trading while insolvent. As this has been the situation for several years both Rob and Edgar’s houses (where most of the assets have been shuffled) should rightfully be subject to claw-back.
This is all even without the two other concerns that the conmen are currently facing:
- Criminal charges
A fraud investigation is currently underway in the Netherlands with the fraud-desk passing the matter on to investigators [They wouldn’t do that if there wasn’t ‘something there’!]
- Personal guarantees
The two conmen have underwritten quite a large percentage of Qoin’s debt with PGs. Bankruptcy of the company is simply a necessary step for creditors to activate foreclosure on their personal assets in order to get paid.
Warning to Creditors
In negotiating with the curator [English: The Liquidator] Creditors should be VERY careful not to be caught with trickery in various entities. Claims against the bankrupt entity should be aligned with trading accounts. If you traded, loaned and helped one entity, be very careful that this is the same entity that you are considering a deal with!
Understand that conmen like these two cowboys, particularly Edgar Kampers is highly experienced in creating and playing with multiple entities and it is very likely that even a professional person could be fooled. This is what these boys have been doing for more than a decade. Sure, this time it has been foist upon them due to a blogger from Samoa who “lacks credibility” but as they say, “The leopard doesn’t change his spots” even when in a corner!
To the Conmen
You are unrepentant criminals – fools on a path to inescapable justice. Your disgusting, obnoxious attitude to the people who helped you has been exposed – your selfishness and greed now busted wide open for the world to see.
Rob, your feckless condemnation of me in a public forum following previous endorsement of my work shows how closely you grovelled up the IRTA Executive’s you-know-what for political and commercial gain, let alone your ego. Was it worth it? For you, probably. For me, not in a million years would I prostitute my reputation for mere money, not even the sorts of money and lifestyle you boys have enjoyed!
I’m pleased that today the world can see – slam-dunk – that Qoin was a Con, yes, a little for my sake, yes a little to show up IRTA [yet again] for the corrupt greasy little lot that they really are particularly under Ron’s watch, protecting one of their mates through a messy and public shaming, yes even a little pleased in that you boys are likely to lose your houses and perhaps even go to jail, but most importantly because the few straight shooters in the Barter and Reciprocal Trade Industry have seen, yet again that crooks like you and Daniel Evans can eventually face the music.
To that I say, “GOOD JOB! Bring on more suckers like you so I can do the same again!”
When you robbed, lied and defrauded the little people, you boys crossed a line. You are now forever firmly in my sights. I’d like to try and explain something to you about me, just for a moment. It’s a concept that you smart-alecks don’t understand, and it is that some people are driven by principle and that for us, we play for keeps. You care about results and looks. Not me. I care about the truth and the facts.
It’s the reason why the GET’s Summary Report into Universal Currency will eventually come into the public arena and will show how the IRTA Executive have covered up crimes and to what extent they have and are still debasing the currency – even though there is nothing in it for me personally to do so.
It’s also the reason that I tracked Daniel Evans for more than a decade. It is the reason that I can smell him at a million paces (yes he and I still communicate believe it or not – he uses aliases) and it is the reason why just like with IRTA and Daniel, where ever you go and whatever you do and whoever you call yourself from now on, I will be there, warning those around you that you boys (whether apart or working together) are incorrigible conmen, crooks with [probably very shortly] criminal records.
Welcome to your new world post-Qoin where I will make sure that your BS will always lose out over truth.
IRTA and others
Since I exposed, located and eventually closed down conman Daniel Evans’ Ormita Fraud, I have been critical of the Executive of IRTA. Ron Whitney and Annette Riggs have shown me time and again that detractors’ criticisms of IRTA as an “old boys’ network” with rampant nepotism to be valid.
IRTA’s handling of this Tradeqoin and more lately Qoin fraud proves beyond a shadow of doubt that IRTA has NO INTEREST in integrity, the truth or indeed anything that resembles the good of the industry. For nigh on three years while I have painstakingly investigated another con on the other side of the world from me, right in the centre of the industry body I might add (Rob van Hilten was a Global Board Member right through my investigation and expose), IRTA has been actively doing everything it can to hide and protect one of its own AND to destroy my credibility.
Today I can show the world the formal proof that my words have credibility. I not only took on the two giants by way of IRTA and Qoin, and won, I predicted totally accurately Qoin’s demise. I could predict this because I did the hard yards, I asked the questions, I worked with facts, applied perfect logic, then blogged fearlessly at personal cost. Yes there have been three dozen or more who have helped me but I did the bulk of the work and spearheaded the entire investigation.
IRTA’s conduct has been utterly despicable in the extreme. Vindication can be seen online today.
To the others who have variously contributed to attacks on my work I speak of your gutless approach to an investigative blogger who simply speaks the truth. In the absence of any apology to date despite ample evidence of fraud within the highly favoured [in many quarters] Qoin Con, I leave you with the mental picture that represents my thoughts and feelings over your conduct in an industry that I know so well and love. A single-finger salute.
You (pl) have no love for the truth. I do.
You have not the slightest morsel of decency or integrity and are thus my clear adversaries:
- Ron Whitney
- Annette Riggs
- Rob van Hilten
- Edgar Kampers
- Stephen DeMeulenaere
- Scott Morris and
to all others who have variously defamed and bad-mouthed me, I ‘salute’ you!
I finish with a warning, a threat, or a promise however you want to take it. I write, exposing crims, crooks & crazies like these two fools in The Netherlands because that is who I am and by choice.
I don’t do it to GET anything or to ACHIEVE anything for myself, other than what is naturally mine by right BUT I can tell you that seeing the world rid of another con makes me feel really, REALLY good.
I tracked him for a decade and it took me six months full-time to research & write The Ormita Report that caused Daniel Evans to scurry away into the darkness of his own mixed-up little world.
It took me more than two years to research the Qoin Con and tens of thousands of stunningly accurate, damning blog words before the truth got out and the world can see what I’ve been saying is fact. Watch as Edgar and Rob too now scurry away like cockroaches when the light comes on.
Now . . . I speak directly to Bartercard . . . and I told you Bartercard that this was coming.
I know you don’t care because you think you’ll get your payout in July 2016, so be it, but I first joined you when we had only 300 members and Kerry Gordon owned the New Zealand franchise. I almost bought a franchise from him for Fiji and had the legal documents prepared before the political situation blew up for us and I pulled out. That’s a VERY long time for me to get to know you.
That I do . . . VERY well!
You’re next. Mark my words . . . for the fools above haven’t taken note of my words and this has been to their detriment . . . the only difference between Ormita, Qoin and you [Bartercard] is that they were small-fry and to be quite frank, were tricky to locate and to pinpoint their crimes.
You’re neither. You are too big to miss and there is too much evidence out there with people across the globe just itching to spill the beans left right and centre!
See you soon at www.BartercardExposed.com.
To everyone else, thanks for joining me!
