LEO CEO Dan Andersson arrested in Pakistan?
A bail application has surfaced, suggesting LEO President and CEO Dan Andersson may have been arrested in Pakistan.
The writ petition in question was filed on July 11th by Dan Gunnar Bjarne Andersson.
A hearing was held on August 13th and the case has been adjourned until August 27th, with no further specific details provided.
What we do know is Andersson’s case is titled “Dan Gunnar Bjarne Anderson-VS-NAB” (note the incorrect spelling of Andersson’s surname, which is believed to be a clerical error).
NAB is the National Accountability Bureau. Andersson (right) has filed his bail petition against in NAB’s regional office in Rawalpindi, a city in Pakistan’s Punjab province.
According to their website, the NAB is
is Pakistan’s apex anti-corruption organization.
It is charged with the responsibility of elimination of corruption through a holistic approach of awareness, prevention and enforcement.
LEO started off as a MLM pyramid scheme flogging personal development DVDs.
Like much of the MLM underbelly, LEO switched focus to the emerging cryptocurrency niche in September.
Since then LEO has been illegally selling securities by way of its LEOcoin investment opportunity.
LEOcoin began publicly trading around September 2015. After a brief pump to $2.15 in late 2016, LEOcoin has since dumped to its current value of less than 20 cents.
99.62% of LEOcoin trading takes place through the TOPBTC exchange, through a LEO/CNY pairing.
Whereas on the trading side of things LEOcoin is being kept afloat by Chinese scammers, Pakistan provides the overwhelming majority of traffic to LEO’s websites.
At the time of publication Alexa cite 67% of traffic to “learnearnown.com” and 75% to “leocoin.org”as originating from Pakistan.
This suggests that Pakistan is by far the largest source of new LEOcoin investors.
LEOcoin going nowhere and LEO itself being an illegal investment opportunity are likely behind authorities targeting the company.
Pending further details of Dan Andersson’s apparent arrest, stay tuned…
Footnote: Details of Dan Andersson’s bail writ petition can be accessed by visiting the Islamabad High Court website, selecting “writ petition” under case category, “2782” as the case number and “2018” as the case year.
Our thanks to the BehindMLM reader who brought this story to our attention.
What was a white guy doing in pakistan? Lol. How did they catch him. Thanks for the news and updates as always oz.
Andersson’s social media profiles have been scrubbed but it appears he was heavily promoting LEO in Pakistan personally.
As per my information Dan just had a webinar last Monday.
And this company seem the most legit. With their DMS service where member can purchase MINING service and gets monthly payments in BTC or eth.
Yeah let’s just ignore the High Court website then shall we?
And there’s nothing legit about LEOCoin. Selling unregistered securities is illegal in every jurisdiction LEO operates in.
Attaching a mining service to your already fraudulent business operation is neither here nor there.
Dan was on a webinar 3 days ago… so no arrested.
Yeah so why is he applying for bail in the High Court then?
So far we’ve had denials with no explanation.
Its a fake news, who ever brings any news you guys just promote it on the website, without knowing the exact details..
its so simple to try to spoil the image of organization who is trying 6 years in the market & registered with all the industry related to the field(DSA,DSAI,DSAUAE,DSAP)etc.
Its just the name confusion, Dan Anderson is not Dan Gunnar Bjarne Andersson.
behindmlm a cool suggestion for you is do a little research before promoting the nasty stuff.
Fake news? It’s on the HIGH COURT website.
No idea what any of those acronyms are but sure they have nothing to do with LEO’s illegally offered securities or pyramid scheme.
Yeah, except that he totally is (I fact checked prior to publication).
Here’s the list of shell companies Andersson has set up in the UK related to LEO.
Evidently the Pakistani contingent of LEO is full of fucking morons. No wonder scams like LEO take off in your country.
what LEO say when you ask them?
Also – not nice to call any PK people f**** morons
Ask LEO what? Anderson’s bail application is publicly available.
And fucking morons are fucking morons no matter where they’re from.
LEO’s fucking morons just happen to be from Pakistan and of a particularly knuckle-dragging variety.
indeed you should.
Thanks for the explanation Oz that you did not mean to call Pakistanis with bad names. It is just the Leo cult who are trying to deny the truth.
It will be helpful to stop denying the fact that Dan has been arrested and start finding out what are the charges on him so that he could be stopped robbing people in Pakistan and other countries.
DSA, DSAI, DSAUAE, DSAP presumably stand for Distance Selling Association (of India, United Arab Emirates and Pakistan respectively).
It’s amusing that Awais Khalid thinks that the governments of India, Pakistan and the UAE have put a trade association for salesmen in charge of financial regulation in their countries.
LEO is a DSA registered member? Muahahahaha.
Why don’t you go search on DSA website yourself? I just did.
Islamabad High Court has updated their website. Dan Anderson’s bail hearing date is 27 August.
Notably his bail application is before Justice Athar Minallah. He is the same judge who heard cases involving high profile corruption case of ex prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
It only points to the idea that Dan Anderson is involved in some really big corruption case or some sorts of scam.
As far as I searched for this case; I dont think Dan has been arrested.
The writ petition in question was filed on July 11th by Dan Gunnar Bjarne Andersson.
That means he was arrested before July 11th. But this is not the case; he had done many webinars after July 11th.
This must be the petition for bail before arrest and as far as I know the UNAICO case was taken up by NAB Pakistan in 2012. It might be the same case proceedings.
Could be. Haven’t heard anything further.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to just leave Pakistan though, or has Andersson taken up residence?
No, he is not a Pakistani National and I have contacted some of LEO leaders in Pakistan; they told that Dan is not in Pakistan.
They further told that NAB had ordered Dan’s arrest warrants in UNAICO case and writ petition is filed by Dan’s lawyer in IHC to get bail before arrest and also to challenge the accusations of NAB.
Anyhow, still no one is fully confident about this case but current situation points out the fact that Dan is surely not in Pakistan.
So a fair call would be Andersson evaded arrest by fleeing Pakistan.
He’s now applied for anticipatory bail for related fraud charges, that he believes will ultimately lead to his arrest.
What a great look for LEO and testament to its credibility as a reputable business run by reputable management.
Yes…till date the news will look like so..
But on the other hand…if we look at it on a broader lines. The companies often face such cases and its pretty normal specially in Sub-continent countries.
The point is: has NAB found him guilty? or it is the arrest warrant just for the investigation.
There are two points: 1. Has NAB ordered any prison sentence or fine against him?
2. or they want him to arrest just for the investigation purpose.
lets see…but I think Dan will get rid of UNAICO case (If this bail petition is against same case). This case is pretty old and prosecutors have failed to prove anything big against DAN.
I’m not aware of MLM company executives facing arrest being an “often” occurrence.
I know the Amway CEO was arrested (rightfully so) and there’s been a recent spate of crypto MLM arrests (again rightfully so).
The only other time I’ve seen anticipatory bail filed in an MLM case in India was when Speak Asia’s execs and top investors tried to avoid authorities. Didn’t work and they were arrested anyway.
Unaico was a fraudulent investment opportunity tacked onto a pyramid scheme. If authorities are looking to arrest Andersson and hold him accountable, again it seems rightfully so.
Fleeing the country and filing for anticipatory bail would suggest otherwise.
Anyway without confirmation there’s no point getting too worked up about it. Andersson will surface at some point. If he’s outside of Pakistan then it’ll be pretty much confirmed he’s on the run from the law.
Either way LEO is a Ponzi/pyramid scheme hybrid and investors are going to lose money sooner or later.
yup you are right but as the case is still in court so its very difficult to judge right now.
But right now we can’t say that Dan is running from the Law. His lawyers are there to defend him. He will be on the run, once IHC doesn’t grant him bail and orders to issue “Wanted” status.
Old Unaico and Pakistan mean Atif Kamran – lots of scams he now doing fake travelcoin.
Sir Dan anderson is our leader and is good person and not arrested. I will send my friend in UK office to take picture with sir Dan anderson and post on facebook to prove he is not arrested.
You people are making him look a bad guy but he is not a bad guy. This type of fake news is bad for our business so please stop doing this type of news.
My leader tell me that sir dan anderson came to pakistan and left on time after the event.
So Andersson has fled to the UK has he.
Ah well, the authorities will still be waiting for him if decides to return. Bit of a pickle Andersson is in though hey.
LEO’s lifeblood is gullible Pakistani Ponzi victims such as yourself, without which it’s game over. Wonder what Andersson will do if his anticipatory bail application is denied.
Dan Andersson bail application will be heard on 10 Sep 2018. There is no evidence that he has been released from police custody.
On their official Facebook page, LEO company has announced that leaders summit is taking place in UK in the first week of September.
If Dan is not arrested then he will be present at this event so let’s wait for the truth.
Sir Dan is not arrested. I have confirmed with my leader. My Leader is going to London to meet the company and join leaders meeting and he said he will take pictures with Sir DAn anderson to prove he is not arrested.
General consensus is Andersson fled Pakistan to avoid being arrested. He’s filed an anticipatory bail application to fend off authorities, which hasn’t been ruled on yet.
Dan on webinars so not in poice custody. Whether in UK or not UK, or any place in world, no evidence he was arrested at any point.
Did he explain why he’s on the run from the law on the webinar?
You can have differences with LEO and Dan but it is unfair to say that Dan is runnig from law. His lawyers are defensing him in court and as per law he is not “Wanted”
This looks a biased view at this point that he is running from the law.
A new update has been received that Dan Andersson has launched another writ petition with case number 1632 in Islamabad High Court to remove his name from Exit Control List (ECL).
“Hearing Details” shows that this writ petition is about ECL matter. This clarifies the situation of Dan being on webinars but not on any company events.
Which means that he is not yet arrested but is not allowed to leave the county.
If he is not successful in getting interim bail then it is possible that he would be arrested at any time.
His best strategy could be to hide somewhere in the country with internet to keep appearing on webinars.
Only people who fear getting arrested file for anticipatory bail.
The fact that he was residing in Pakistan and fled to the UK once he filed for anticipatory bail is also damning.
You can choose to ignore the evidence, that doesn’t change Andersson’s actions.
I just visited the IHC site and found that writ petition 1632 was taken up by court on 30 April 2018 against Dan ANderson but I could not find the basis of case.
There is no indication for the request of name for ECL removal.
As per Islamabad High Court website it is clear that Dan Andersson applied for this writ petition against ministry of interior, National accountability bureau and Federarion of Pakistan. You can see this under the tab ‘Parties’.
Regarding ECL I have already explained in my post above. Go to ‘Hearing Details’ and you can see ECL matter under the column ‘Short Order’.
These days in Pakistan ECL matter is hot as all the corrupt politicians and businessmen are being placed on ECL so that they do not leave the country.
I am confused, I think my leader is lying to me. He said he will take picture with Dan anderson but now he say Dan is not in UK.
I think they are hiding something. I do not like this lying.
The IHC website indicates a hearing today for the ECL issue.
Interessting: If you check the facebook page of Leo Corporate, Dan Andersson didn’t participate at any Leo event at all during the last 3 months !
Normally, there were photos of him at events all the time.
He only made webinars.
So something is going on….
All is fine, according to their BCT thread, although I note the carefully worded answer does not indicate Andersson’s whereabouts.
Where do you see that?
The bitcointalk reference you address is a LEOcoin thread, not LEO – but I know, carefully phrasing is an issue.
Perhaps anything Unaico/Kamran related is not (longer) seen as relevant for LEOcoin.
With regard to LEO: it seems that LEO in Pakistan was involved in the creation of a Pakistani Direct Selling Association and the LEO members in Pakistan work openly and free.
To me, this does not look that LEO is investigated, but rather something/someone else.
Just go to mis.ihc.gov.pk/frmCseSrch.aspx
Advanced Search, Anderson.
You will get three search results.
Two of them with a hearing date of 1 Nov 2018. The last one is the ECL issue.
If you check Leo Corporate’s facebook timeline, you can see the latest “real” picture with Dan Andersson marked Leo Live Seminar, Lahore, Pakistan, 25 March 2018. (Post from 30 April)
The court proceedings start in April, so maybe he is since March/April in Pakistan and can’t leave due to the ECL.
Leo == LeoCoin. Don’t kid yourself, nobody outside of Leo gives two craps about LeoCoin.
The DSA link is meaningless with respect to regulation. And investors will be able to promote Leo, until they can’t.
Dan Andersson has no links to Pakistan other than scamming people through Leo, so what else could they possibly be investigating?
I just came across a court case in Canada between Andersson and Atif Kamran:
This is even more interesting:
From the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
It shows a fight between Andersson and Kamran and Aquino. It also shows how they founded MyTravelBiz.
Skimmed through a few decisions, this seems to be the meat of it:
So basically Andersson is suing Kamran for ousting him (after he was allegedly fired), and Aquino, a former employee who fronted LEO’s Canadian shell company, is caught in the cross-fire (she sided with Kamran over Andersson).
The order quoted above reduces Kamran’s request Andersson put down $150,000 as a security deposit to $50,000.
Not really sure if it’s worth a separate writeup given this happened back in early 2017. And given Andersson’s apparent problems with Pakistani authorities.
Sidenote: Is there some easy way to search and keep track of the case as a whole? Every decision appears to have a separate case number 🙁
Andersson and followers are still preying on unsuspecting victims.
In a recent court decision below, UK judges agreed with Andersson’s former partner and LEO Cofounder, Kamran who made protected disclosures about missing money that he suspected Andersson of taking.
Andersson tried to keep Kamran quiet by unjustly firing him. Now Andersson claims LEO is insolvent. This trail is easier to follow than a paint-by-numbers board.
Guess where all the money went? Don’t they put people in jail for stuff like this?
Detailed reasons of the judgement can be found here.
It is clear that Dan Andersson has misused his position and took money from LEO to the point to bankrupt the company.
Thanks for keeping on top of this one guys. Much appreciated.
You are funny, learn how to let up, so he’s arrested so what, so he’s not arrested so what.
Do you know that as arguing here since last year about Dan Anderson, people have and I mean poor people’s lives have been changed for better, scratch that I’m from Africa, people here have millions with LEO yet you assholes are still the same no progress in your life.
I think I know the problem with you people, it’s lack of ideas to develop yourselves, and you hate to someone become successful at something you couldn’t do so you decide to trash talk about the MLM successful leaders.
stop wasting time go out there and make money Dan Anderson has given people the platform to make money, arrested or not that man is a great man and successful.
look at this way I lose money in LEO it will be my fault not Dan’s why am I saying this, coz I can point out over 200 people in my area who are living better life because of leo.
(Dan Anderson’s idea, whether you are right or wrong right now you are nothing but a hater.
Lol. Classic MLM Ponzi moment.
If you have to resort to using “haterz” to defend your Ponzi scheme, you’ve already lost.
Thanks for the laughs and as always, sorry for your loss (ditto your 200 imaginary friends).
LOL….. really Classic MLM Ponzi moment for fool people. hahahaha.
It is 1000% correct that Dan Anderesen is under arrest by Pakistani Police for Leo ponzi scheme as well as Sitetalk and Uniko ponzi schemes he run in pakistan in past.
These are really fool people whoever is in network under ponzi schem. They are not reading from where we reading. they just belive on their leader . hahahah. my leader will go to london and will goto office and will take a picture with sir Dan Andersen who fucked him. hahahaha.
I need these kind of people to fuck again by another ponzi scheme . I can make million and i can make few pens who they did not worked in life to make some money . i will make them but they need to collect million for me. hahahaha.
Network industry people dont have brain. they belive on their fool top leader who dont know who is using them. they teach them that LEO is your own business , dont do jobs and jobs seeker like a servent etc.
but they forgetting here that they are still on job under someone who is not only fucking them while he is also fucking to their families and friends. they brocking their relations.
And the next in line is Mihir Magudia arrest in South Africa.
He has defrauded so many people in Africa and should face the consequences.
Mihir Magudia arrest in South Africa and still in Jail. LEO decepted with African People.
Now I can see LEO is operating with another Name: LBL (Learn Build Lead) that will another big scam with Pakistani people.
These are non professional People without education and technical skills. Dan Andersen is still in Pakistani Jail with police because of this big scam.
its very hard for me to teach MLM people about this scam in Pakistan.
Mihir Magudia stole people’s money in LEO coin and now selling a book about cryptocurrencies as if he is an expert.
He probably is an expert in conning others and stealing from them.
This guy writing about his downline or did he just write bitcoin fanfiction?
Same like leo has scamed and after lbl company emerged they Traped alot of Peoples and Billions in dollars investment in the shape of Fake Lc4 coin Stealed.
Liaqat khan magray is big scamer and Involved in this scheme. Now they are Scaming On the name of resto coin and Gwader property fraud..
