#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Sydney Lye is a Liar

AUTHOR: Robert Georges - ()

This report which has been filed by Mr. Sydney Lye is an absolute lie and I challenge him to provide proof of when I have ever claimed to be a securities trader as implied by him. Nor have I ever taken anyone’s money to place into any private placement program.

I have never taken any money from him, in fact quite the opposite, I have sent him money on several occasions when he has called me stating that he has no money to feed his family. 

I have had the unfortunate experience of knowing Sydney Lye, also known as Sydney Tunku Lye for some time and during that time he has proven he is an unethical and immoral con man. He has never completed a successful deal in all the time I have known him. He has however cheated many people, which I will elaborate on further.

He claims he is ex CIA and shows a fake CIA ID card, which is an absolute lie and anyone who has met him or spoken with him would immediately know this.

He also claims he is a prince in Malaysia (a Tunku is a similar title to Prince in Malaysia), yet when Tunku is used as a title in Malaysia, it is used before a persons name the same way the title Prince is used in English, not as the middle name as it is used in his name. He claims that his family had a fallout with the royal family in Malaysia so they then moved to Sri Lanka, yet when asked why he does not have a typical Malaysian name which is essentially an Islamic name, he claims he changed his name from his Islamic name to an English name as he did not want to discriminated against because of his Islamic background. It is ironic that he claims to have chosen a surname such as Lye and this in indicative of what his character is in being a compulsive liar.

He also claims he is a compliance officer although he has no formal or current qualifications to do so. This is also obvious and proven by his poor English writing. If anyone is to communicate with him, you will see that he cannot write proper English nor can he spell properly or use spell check as is evident by his writing in this post.

The reason Sydney Lye is disgruntled with me is because he claims to have completed his so called “compliance” on a bank instrument from Deutsche Bank Germany with a face value of euro 50 million, yet the instrument is actually fraudulent and cannot be verified by Deutsche Bank Germany or HSBC Hong Kong where he claims he confirmed the instrument is being held.

He claims that he went to London to confirm and verify the instrument in Germany. How anyone can claim they went to a bank in London to confirm an instrument issued by a bank in Germany is beyond me. Nonetheless he charged the client to fly to London and then reported to the client that he had verified everything. They then claimed that they had the instrument sent by swift to HSBC Hong Kong (HK) in order to obtain a credit facility but the supposed transaction failed.

When asked why HSBC HK cannot verify the asset, Sydney Lye’s excuse is that “because the receiving account does not have a designated bank officer, they cannot enact any transactions on the account”.  I still cannot understand this statement, it is as if he is claiming that HSBC HK has only one bank officer per account or has no other bank officer/s, which can deal with different accounts. This is an absolutely absurd comment, how a so-called compliance officer make such a ridiculous statement especially about HSBC Hong Kong is a clear indication of his ignorance and further evidence of his intentional deceit in fabricating such a ridiculous story. 

The client then proceeded with the transaction on the basis that Sydney Lye claims that he verified the asset in London and confirmed it was received in HSBC HK, yet neither bank can confirm the existence of the asset or the supposed swifts that have been sent.

It was these lies and actions by Sydney Lye that caused the client to lose money not any actions on the part of my company or myself.

When it was evident that the transaction had failed, I was then introduced to the client to assist the client with their transaction.

We uncovered the lies of Sydney Lye and proved that what he was saying was absolutely false. Sydney Lye was the one who cheated the client and caused the client to proceed with the transaction even though he knew he was lying about the verification just so that he could get his expenses paid and an airline ticket paid and make his petty fee.

The client now knows the truth of the situation and realises that the transaction cannot be concluded but acknowledges that we have had no part in the dubious dealings of Sydney Lye.

In fact the client has already confirmed to me in writing that they have no issues with my company or me and that they have not made any complaints to Sydney Lye nor have they authorised him to make any complaint or take any action on their behalf.

Sydney Lye has also made direct threats to me since making this report, that if I do not pay money and report directly to his associate (not to the client) that he will make further allegations against me and threatened to do me and my company damage. This is blatant extortion and we will be proceeding with legal action against Sydney Lye for defamation and possibly extortion.

He has also cheated at least 2 people we know claiming that he has completed financial transactions and is just waiting on his commission and just needs some money until he gets his payout so he took money from them promising a share of profit from his alleged transaction but unfortunately both these people were intentionally cheated by Sydney Lye and lost their money. Both parties advised us of how they were swindled by Sydney Lye and it is clear that he blatantly and intentionally cheated them using either fraudulent documentation or making false representations.

Sydney Lye claims he offers his compliance services for small fees and sometimes just for the air ticket. The reason he does this is because his current partner, (who he refers to as his ATM), is an airline hostess and he gets discounted airline tickets so he charges people for the full price ticket and keeps the balance, often stating that he is not charging anything for his time. This is how petty this man is and as outlined above he will create scenarios so that he can charge people for his so-called compliance services.

Sydney Lye often shows a card claiming that he is the Compliance Officer of Sherwood Management Inc., a company that was registered in Canada and owned by his then de facto which was a company he was previously associated with. He has a supposed authorisation number on the card that he claims is his license number yet this cannot be verified and appears to be only an internally issued card not one issued by any regulatory body as he claims.  We have attempted to confirm his supposed license but have been unable to find any record of this in Canada or anywhere else.

Sydney Lye claims he was the Operation Executive Director at Sherwood Management Inc. He then went to Malaysia to supposedly expand the business. During his time at Sherwood Management Inc. the company issued some sort of financial instruments to one of their clients. However, these instruments were allegedly copied and used by an associate of Sydney Lye to defraud some investors. Sydney Lye claims that he had nothing to do with this yet he was the supposed compliance officer who gave the instruments to his associate who then copied them to make fraudulent documents which were used to cheat other investors.

Things also went badly after his de facto found out that he had actually married another lady in Malaysia and had a baby with her whilst he was still in a relationship with the defacto and she had him reported to the authorities for some of his dubious dealings.

Here is his LinkedIn profile where he claims he is a compliance officer but a simple conversation with him will quickly establish that he has absolutely no idea of what he claims he can do and is just a fraudster. He claims he has an accounting qualification from 40 years ago which does not qualify him as a compliance officer. Additionally his sources of information are outdated and irrelevant in the current market and his apparent ignorance of lack of adherence to regulatory standards, current government and banking regulations is a further indication that he has no ability or interest in participating in any genuine business and his sole purpose is an intention to defraud people. He also seems to be oblivious to AML/CTF and KYC requirements and complains when these must be adhered to for all transactions and yet he is supposed to be a “compliance officer”. 

According to current records at the time of writing, Sydney Tunku Lye is not a director of any company in Hong Kong, nor is he licensed to provide any financial services in Hong Kong despite what his implies on his LinkedIn profile. You can also see his email address, which is how he likes to portray himself as Tunku Sydney, although as mentioned above, this is a fraud and he is not a prince or any type of royalty.

hk.linkedin.com/pub/sydney-lye/6a/44b/a76

Here is another one of his LinkedIn profiles where he states that he is a senior consultant at Compliance and Trading yet there is no company in Hong Kong with the name Compliance and Trading. 

hk.linkedin.com/pub/sydney-lye/54/4a0/562

Again you can note his poor English grammar and punctuation but here he claims he offer such services as

“Arrange banking facilities, Monetizing, compliance work for the banking institution facilitate BG and SBLC Buy Sell Programs”

Another absolute lie, he has no bank facilities and no access to any real credit facilities to enable him to do such transactions.

He relies on a broker network of people who think that they are going to close a big deal based on sending a few emails or making a few introductions.

By his own admission, he lost a house and his first wife and family due to gambling and it seems he still stuck in the concept of hitting the jackpot through one of his “deals”.

Another one of his LinkedIn profiles states that he is a GM at Ocean Link International

hk.linkedin.com/pub/sydney-lye/a/882/988

During his time at Ocean Link, by his own admission he introduced a client or possibly several clients from Iran to the company that were cheated of approx. euro 3m which also sparked a money laundering investigation by the Hong Kong CCB (Commercial Crime Bureau).  Needless to say that the company has closed down and the President of the company has disappeared with the clients funds, all thanks to Sydney Lye.

Here he uses another email address also with the tunsyd name again trying to portray himself as Tunku Sydney, although as mentioned above, this is a fraud and he is not a prince or any type of royalty. 

He is currently working at a bakery in Hong Kong which is owned by his current partner although he has a picture of himself sitting at a desk, he was actually baking the bagels for some time and now claims that he operates the business although he is not a director of the company, nor does he have any work permit in Hong Kong.

https://socialcam.com/v/PwzH952a 

In conclusion, once again I state that I have never taken any money from him.

I have never made any representations as to being a licensed securities trader (as implied by him) or anything of the like and I challenge him to provide any proof, witnesses or documentation as to when I have ever made these representations to anyone

I also challenge him to provide any proof, documentation or witnesses that I have taken money from people on the basis that I would invest into any private placement programs.

If you would like any further information or supporting documentation evidencing the dubious dealings of Mr. Sydney Tunku Lye, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you have been cheated by Sydney Lye or need any evidence on his dubious dealings, please contact me and I would be happy to assist you in anyway possible.

If you would like references on my company, or me please also write to me and I would be happy to provide references and testimonials verifying our professionalism and performance.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Robert
