Ravid Yosef Was Likely Arrested. UK Feds Seize $250-400M Worth of Crypto

Crypto Investigations Jul 27, 2021

So a few days ago, several articles dropped, mentioning the fact that hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency was seized by UK authorities

British police seize record $408 million haul of cryptocurrency
British police have seized record hauls of cryptocurrency totalling 294 million pounds ($408 million) as part of an investigation into money laundering after organised crime groups moved into cyptocurrencies to wash their dirty money.

It appears that this was the second such seizure in just a few weeks (spanning from June 2021 to July)

"London police said on Tuesday they had seized 180 million pounds of an undisclosed cryptocurrency less than three weeks after making a 114 million pound haul on June 24 as part of a money laundering investigation." (June 24th they collected some of this crypto prior)

Worth noting is the following statement though, "A 39-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of money laundering after the first haul was discovered and has been interviewed under caution over the 180 million pound discovery."

The age of the woman caused me to wonder about potential culprits.

Who is Ravid Yosef?

That's when my mind instantly gravitated to Ravid Yosef.

Reginald Fowler was apprehended at the time of this press release (April 30th, 2019). However, Ravid has remained at large ever since.

Curiously, just 3 months before the unsealed indictment on Ravid Yosef and Reginald Fowler was published on the DOJ site, she incorporated a company in the U.K. with other high-ranking members of the criminal syndicate.

The company was incorporated on January 16th, 2019 (just one day after the death of Gerry Cotten was announced by his surviving widow on QuadrigaCX).

The filing for that company can be found here is embedded below for convenience.

The document above contains the corporate governance information for Ravid Yosef's company, "Finnovative Holdings" ; the characters that are listed on there are...interesting to say the least.

The company was created in 2019 and remained active for 2+ years later .

Ravid Yosef being on the indictment that I linked above is obviously tied in with Crypto Capital Co., and Global Trade Solutions (if you know nothing about this - keep up, you're way behind)

Below are the entries for the three others that are listed as company 'directors' (governance role).

You probably haven't heard of those names, but they were on the corporate register for Global Trade Solutions alongside Ivan Manuel Molina Lee

They were put in liquidation back in 2019 after being taken over by Swiss authorities (rare that they spring into action like that; must've been prompted by the U.S. or Europe.

Cryptocurrency firm Global Trade Solutions AG, which appears to be caught up in the suspected theft of $850 million from BVI-owned crypto exchange Bitfinex, has been placed under regulatory supervision in Switzerland.

Keeping this in mind, let's take a look at the other individuals that were listed in association with the organization at one point in time.

There's our guy - Ivan Manuel Molina Lee ^^

We need to go check out the other two guys that are supposed to be attached to this company (Eitan Tregar and Amit Raz).

Above we can see the two individuals that were listed in 'management' at the time of the company's liquidation.

  • Ivan Manuel Molina Lee
  • Siegfried Josef Hettegger

Let's also go ahead and take a look at prior management.

Here we have:

  • Mercury Compliance AG
  • Ivo Krämer
  • Christoph Maler
  • Marcus Altenburg
  • Kurt Treyer

I'm going to repost those pictures with the English translation of the words in another language (because I can't fucking speak that language).

I missed two guys

Amit Raz + Eitan Tregar (those are two of the other names that were up there with Ravid Yosef)

Back to Ravid Yosef

Okay, so we know that Ravid is balls deep in this entire operation (for her to be starting a company that has some other generals of GTS at the top of this fleet with her).

Let's go check out that article that I was mentioning again

British police seize record $408 million haul of cryptocurrency
British police have seized record hauls of cryptocurrency totalling 294 million pounds ($408 million) as part of an investigation into money laundering after organised crime groups moved into cyptocurrencies to wash their dirty money.

In the article, they explicitly state, "A 39-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of money laundering after the first haul was discovered and has been interviewed under caution over the 180 million pound discovery."

Hmm, okay. So Ravid Yosef was born in 1982.

If we do the quick math, we can see that 2021-1982 = 39.

Also, the company is in the U.K., which means that despite being an Israeli citizen, we know that Ravid Yosef had at least some orders of business that needed to be taken care of in the U.K.

Conclusion

This article could be entirely incorrect in its conclusions; however, if it is, then it should be mighty interesting to see who else it would be.
