Forcount’s Boris CEO arrested in Spain, extradited to US
Forcount Boris CEO Salvador Molina, played by Spanish national Nestor Nunez, was arrested in Spain on December 28th, 2022.
This wasn’t publicly known until last month, following Nunez’s arrest upon touching down in the US last month.
Nunez appears to have been arrested at the behest of US authorities. He was extradited to the US and landed in New York on April 3rd.
Nunez was presented before a US court for his initial appearance on April 4th. At the hearing Nunez pled not guilty to Forcount related criminal charges filed against him.
Nunez was ordered remanded to custody pending a Status Conference on April 24th.
That proceeding went ahead as scheduled, resulting in another Status Conference scheduled for June 8th.
Forcount was an $8.4 million MLM crypto Ponzi. The scam, a reboot of the collapsed Cointherum Ponzi scheme, was launched in 2017 by “cryptocurrency sheik” Francis Silva (right).
Silva and several Forcount promoters were indicted in December 2022. Silva, a Brazilian national, was arrested by Brazilian authorities on November 3rd, 2022.
Brazilian authorities are investigating Silva for running a wider $800 million crypto Ponzi empire.
Following Forcount’s collapse Nestor Nunez, appearing as himself, released a mea culpa video that was circulated on social media.
To the best of my knowledge Nunez is the first Boris CEO actor US authorities have pursued with criminal charges.
Now this is how you get someone extradited. Arrested in December, on US soil four months later.
Brazil – Carlos Wanzeler stripped of Brazilian citizenship in Feb 2018, still not extradited to US.
France – Frank Schneider arrested mid 2021. Extradition appeal denied October 2022. Current status: ???
Serbia – Krstijan Krstic arrested in July 2019. Extradition to US granted in April 2021. Krstic released pending extradition because reasons in July 2021. Krstic and wife disappear in September 2021.
Some of these countries are beyond hopeless.
To add to the list:
Christopher Hamilton, OneCoin alleged money launderer, is presumably still in the UK after English courts upheld his extradition to NY.
Amer Abdulaziz, hiding in the UAE almost certainly has a US indictment hanging over him.
Jose Gordo has a known indictment in Argentina and is highly likely to have a sealed indictment haunting him in NY. He’s still in Spain.
And yet the US managed to get Dilkinska out of Bulgaria and Greenwood out of Thailand.
