Arnaud Massartic Investment scam 90210 California
Arnaud Massartic is a con man. There's no other way of putting it. He contacted me, claiming to be a billionaire and then tried to convince me to provide debt financing for real estate he does not actually own. Arnaud Massartic provided me with forged and fraudulent documents, contracts and bank statements. I sent all this information to the FBI and am awaiting a response. In the meantime, I would like other victims of Arnaud Massartic to step forward and help law enforcement put this guy out of business permantently.
Arnaud Massartic contacted me via LinkedIn about six months ago. He claimed to be a billionaire seeking assistance in raising capital for various projects. On the surface, this seemed legit. There is even a Fortune magazine article online which (erroneously) states that Arnaud is the owner of an $8 million Maybach automobile. [continued below]....
Here's a link to the Fortune article:
When I first met him in person, he claimed to have made his billions of dollars in the oil industry. Specifically, he claimed he owned a global oil company called Societe Pan America Oil, located at 9595 Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills. The name of this company sounds very similar to Pan American Energy located in Argentina. This is delibrate -- Arnaud Massartic wants people to believe he owns the real Argentinian company. (Incidentally, I went to this building and there is no tenant there with any relation to Arnaud Massartic or his alleged company.) His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The domain name (panamerica.ca) is a fairly legit-looking site, except it doesn't actually provide any information. This web site is a dummy billboard to convince people that Arnaud Massartic is actually a real businessman.
Arnaud Massartic recently presented me with a legal contract which claims that he (through his company) owns three office buildings in downtown Beverly Hills. The content of this contract is pure fiction -- the phone numbers to various legal entities are fakes. One of Arnaud's company's phone numbers is actually the Hilton's number and another number rings up a chiropractor's office. He presented me with this contract in an attempt to raise up to $100 million in debt financing collateralized by these buildings. Thank god I figured out the scam in time. I called the actual owner of the building (LNR in Newport Beach, CA) and they confirmed that Arnaud does NOT own these buildings.
In the six months I worked with Arnaud, here is a list of other lies he told me:
-He personally knows Vladmir Putin
-He is a business partner with Hollywood legend Skip Paul (this is a complete lie, although he does "know" Skip)
-He owns a $30 million mansion in Bel Air located on St. Pierre Street (the property records show the house belongs to someone else)
-He owns multiple Ferraris. Maybachs and private planes
-His wife is a super-model (a background check says he's not married)
-John Kerry stays at his mansion when he passes through LA
-He owns a $100 million villa in the south of France
-His uncle is the prime minister of Montenegro
-He has already or might buy MGM or Lionsgate
-He has been invited to parites at the White House
-The list goes on forever
As I have mentioned, I have personally attempted to verify all of these assertions and they have turned out to be all lies. Arnaud Massartic is a con man. I have already tipped off the FBI but I need help. Please contact me and let's put Arnaud Massartic behind bars.
