OneCoin’s Mark Scott disbarred in New York
OneCoin money laundering attorney Mark Stanley Scott has been disbarred in New York.
The decision was made in an opinion published by the New York State Law Reporting Bureau on October 29th.
The reason cited for Scott’s disbarment is his OneCoin money laundering and bank fraud convictions.
These convictions stem from respondent’s involvement in a wire fraud scheme in which $400 million in cryptocurrency was transferred to and from accounts in the United States and foreign locations, as well as his role in defrauding federally backed financial institutions of moneys and other property through the misrepresentation of material facts.
Despite Scott (right) having yet to be sentenced, New York judiciary law ‘provides for automatic disbarment when an attorney is convicted of a felony.’
The court found Scott’s money laundering conviction failed ‘to meet this standard’. The conspiracy to commit bank fraud conviction however was enough.
Scott had argued his pending conviction acquittal motion meant that disbarment proceedings in New York were premature. The argument was rejected.
That said, if Scott somehow prevails in his motion, he’s free to seek an overturn of his disbarment.
As of October 29th, Scott’s name was stricken from the New York attorney roll backdated to November 21st, 2019.
He has also been commanded ‘to desist and refrain from the practice of law in any form in the State of New York’.
Scott had been a practicing attorney in New York since 1996.
As of 1998 Scott was also admitted in Florida. A decision on his standing there remains suspended, pending the outcome of Scott’s acquittal motion.
Following multiple delays, Scott is currently scheduled to be sentenced on December 17th.
I find it quite exciting!
Well, Scott’s wife Lidia and Allan Kronfeld working for Scott’s former business associate, David Pike (d/b/a Venoma LLC, venom with an -a), are moving full steam ahead on their cannabis shop in South Wellfleet, Massachusetts called CCC Wellfleet NV LLC (Cape Cod Cannabis).
And I am the only person in town trying to alert local officials as to their criminal past but nobody believes me.
They somehow got an illegal building permit with no approved plans and want to open before the end of November.
US Attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling’s office HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!!! Since he won’t, can someone help us please?
I can’t speak to the legalities of permits etc, but I can see Lidia getting into cannabis to cope. Hubby is going away for a long time.
Mark S Scott’s cannabis business was mentioned in one of court filings recently, so the Feds certainly know about it already:
As to the Mark’s lesser known criminal past — that the Feds most certainly are aware of, as it mentioned in the OneCoin FinCen SAR file — is his involvement in laundering money for the SpotFN investment fraud with Zala group criminals Gilbert Armenta, William Morro, Giselle Valentin, and Diane Cook. See:
The Zala group criminal gang used the Georgian branch office scheme for various other companies too. They most likely were involved in various criminal enterprises. Here is the list by person of Zala group’s Georgian companies, if someone wants to investigate them:
At least Cadavitech (companyinfo.ge/en/corporations/672466 — a branch office for Morro and Armenta’s BVI based Cadavitech Ltd) seems to be another company which is alleged to have been associated with criminal activity:
Interesting that one of the persons alleged to be behind Cadavitech is Michael Alcocer Roa — a convicted wire fraud felon:
meh, i was actually gonna say “duh” and duh things generally make me yawn.
Sorry to hear you’re bored. You found the time to comment I notice. It’s Sunday so you should have your allowance from your old lady and will be able to get back onto pornhub again. See you next week.
In the meantime all of us that watch and anticipate the slow unravelling of OC wonderland and enjoy other people not being hurt going forward will stay tuned. Happy w@nking!
ya i get it, scadenfraude is a real thing. can’t blame you.
it’s really a miserable time, so schadenfraude doubles as distraction. I’m enjoying it too.
Thanks @Semjon! But I still then don’t understand why they are allowing it to continue.
Are we as a town just going to get used? Because we really don’t need this is our small town that has approved other Host Community Agreements.
Not sure the authorities are focusing enough on Mark Scott’s relationship with David Pike and a young man named Allan Kronfeld who set up Venoma with Lidia Scott and is the money behind Cape Cod Cannabis.
A new proposed delay.
I agree money for the cannabis business is from onecoin and actually Mark Scott wife is running it with her friend Larisya kavaleva and the registered agent is Allen Kornfeld.
Since Mark s Scott and David r Pike is convicted. Mark s Scott put his wife Lidia v Scott.
I would contact the New York State atterneys Office Mr Christopher DiMase (Ozedit: phone removed)
Mark S Scott and his wife are Crooks. They have stolen a lot of money from Innocent people.
I hope this helps.
