Kyiv “traders” from Milton Group continue to work in Kyiv, deceiving pensioners in the EU.
The Milton Group, which was accused of a pyramid scheme worth over $70 million in 2020, continues to operate from Kyiv, with an office in one of the capital’s business centers.
This is stated in the article RBC-Ukraine “Big jackpot. How Milton Group scammers continue to deceive people under the guise of war.”
As you know, Milton Group was established in Israel in 2016. A year later, the company moved to Kyiv, opening an office in the very center of the capital – in the Mandarin Plaza shopping center. “Officially” the company is engaged in financial services and IT business.
In fact, more than 200 employees offer European pensioners a “profitable investment” in cryptocurrencies and stocks. Milton Group employees have scammed thousands of people from over 50 countries. In 2019 alone, the organization fraudulently defrauded more than $70 million.
According to RBC-Ukraine, the company still has its headquarters in Kyiv. Moreover, the swindlers did not even begin to change the location of the office, continuing to rent premises in Mandarin Plaza and Arena City.
According to journalists, for organizations like Milton Group, the war has become a “convenient” background, because in fact the entire power bloc is involved in protecting the country’s territorial integrity, without being able to fully investigate and bring fraudsters to justice.
The journalists sent an information request to the National Police, the Security Service of Ukraine and the Bureau of Economic Security with a question whether cases against Milton Group are open in Ukraine. At the time of publication, no official responses had been provided.
“Such impunity enables scammers to open new call centers in other countries. In particular, it is known about the “representations” of the Milton Group in Albania, Georgia and North Macedonia, but under a different brand. Also, according to employees, the company has an office in Russia. The company still employs hundreds of people.
Recall that the top positions in the company are occupied by Georgians. Some of them are former Georgian officials who have previously been accused of illegal activities.
The only official beneficiary of Milton Group is Georgian Irakli Dadivadze. Dadivadze’s second big business is Lime Consulting online casino.
Journalists call an Israeli of Georgian origin David Todua the real owner of Milton Group. He is associated with the forces of the United National Movement party of Mikheil Saakashvili.
