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]....

.....  Based on what I now know, Arnaud Massartic does not own any Maybach, nor has he ever owned any such car in the past.  (He rents a white Range Rover Sport, although it may be stolen for all I know.)  After performing a background investigation, I have discovered that Arnaud Massartic lives in a small apartment in Hollywood and is merely a pathetic con man.

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 amassartic@panamerica.ca.  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.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: Arnaud Massartic - ()

There you go,

We did not want to go that low but here is a proof that Andres Pinter is a liar and trying to blackmail us for money.

Number one this is the NON BIDDING LOI which is not a contract as it is stated.This is what Pinter call the famous contract and that's a lie and fraud.The title State it very well and there is also no date on the non bidding which make it absolutely not usable in any shape of form.So he is caught there.

Number two please find his engagement letter where he calls himself my exclusive financial adviser and where we are talking just like in the Non Bidding LOI about a PURCHASE not refinancing or anything else/Note also that at the time he doesnt have a loan broker license and neither a financial advisor license.Which is clearly FRAUD.

Caught there again

And also proof of him getting terminated by us politely and by text.


We Will Post more as it comes and at this point we are pressing charges.This is it Andres.

Skip will also most likely write an affidavit that he didnt know Pinter ,had no idea what he wanted with him and use slender and defamation when referring to  myself.

And other people will testify that you told them you ran a 6Billions $ fund,that you were still at Ernst and young as you advertised yourself on linkedin and this is it.There is nothing you can say now,you are the worst individual and I feel bad for you

You are troubled my friend

Best Regards,

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: Arnaud Massartic - ()


Don't you understand that we all knew that you had no license?Dont you think we were not checking up on you at time as you said you were with Ernst and young and then no longer with them but still under their license which is completely illegal to try to get business done as a financial adviser?Are you that desperate?

Don't you get it that nobody ever returned your calls because at this point we didn't want to do business with you?Don't you get it that we have all your emails that you sent left and right and that my friends were laughing at you and sending you dumb emails response to you when they even did respond?

Are you not aware that Skip is a really  dear close friend of mine and that when I dont know something I ask him immediately?

Dont you finally get it that we were waiting for you to go this far that you would put yourself in that kind of position where now nobody will ever want to do business with you?

Are you that crazy my poor friend?

You are talking about a non bidding letter of intent which do not constitute a contract and you call this a contract?

Have you seen what is written on top of it?NON BIDDING AND NOT IN ANY SORT OF A WAY A PURCHASE AGREEMENT CONTRACT.THERE IS NOT EVEN A DATE ON IT.don't you get it?

Have you ever been providing with an agreement for sale and purchase?no

Did you sign any kind of engagement letter with us which is valid?no?because we never sent you a physical one and you never either send back anything.

On your draft of engagement letter,did you call yourself a financial advisor but you had no license and no insurance?yes you certainly did

Did you know you were committing a felony Andres?To sell securities or arrange for a loan without a broker license?Do you get it or you really are that delusional?

On your draft of engagement letter,is it mentionned anything else but the financing of a purchase of properties?no,nothing else Andres.

Why would you embarrass yourself like that?

Don't you get it that you left a voicemail to one of my lawyer talking about a fraudulent contract when you never had a contract of any sort?Are you completely insane Andres?Who will do crazy thing like this?

The more you write and the more you embarrass yourself,nobody knows who you are Andres.You thought people will care about you and now you will have to make public apologies and I guarantee you that we will finalize everything legally now.We have more than what we wanted.

What you did is not a thing you should have done and this is not sitting well with any of my friends either.

We have been extremely respectful to you until now and never sent any email to any of the parties with whom you are trying to do business with and we know very well.Why?Because we are not little kids Andres.We are gentlemen Andres.

What you are doing is pathetic,worst and  below everything that we have ever seen.

And I'm sad for you,I really am.You really are a poor individual Andres and I think you being done at Ernst and young,your money probably running low and your deals not going through did force you to act like this in some sort of delusional state of mind.It's really pitiful.It is probably why nobody cares for you.

I will make you an offer and that will be it.

You call me tomorrow ,I put you on the line with my partners,all of them and you apologize for your behavior and we square this up like gentlemen and you go away.

If you don't call me tomorrow and do not apologize to me and my partners,we will blast you publicly the same way that you try to do with me.

It's that simple.Its called being a man Andres and not a little boy trying to hurt other people when you have nothing and no power to do anything.

That's it.You call like a man,you apologize and we forget about this.You don't call and act like a maniac and my lawyers and the proper service will take care of this knowing that we are getting a restraining order against you.

So up to you,you call me and we are good.

You don't and we will see how it is going to look for you.

And by the way,if anything is written again here,you will see who will post the next rebuttal.I guarantee you,you will feel sorry.

Best Regards,

More evidence that Arnaud Massartic is a con artist

AUTHOR: RPax - ()

I have attached the signature page to the contract in which Arnaud Massartic claims he owns the three Beverly Hills buildings that are actually owned by LNR.  I have also attached text messages from Arnaud that claim that LNR is his "partner" and that he already owns an equity stake in the buildings.  

I have also attached text messages Arnaud wrote that claim that Skip Paul is his business partner and is like "family" to him.

#5 REBUTTAL Individual responds


AUTHOR: Arnaud Massartic - ()

Andres Paul Pinter is the author of this report and cannot even write his real name and sign on it,


He claimed to be working at Ernst and Young,which he did briefly before he was terminated and contacted us to help him fund his movie company which has no IP and no title or anything after befriending us we invited him to discuss with him in a restaurant with the afro mentionned people that he claims we barely know.

We were very friendly with him even tho he called Ryan Kavannaugh who he never met from Relativity Media a Fraudster and a con in front of witnesses and even tho he called John Davis the producer supposedly on his board 'a cheap b*****d that wont pay a meal or even invest in his own company'  and again all of that in front of witnesses.

Andres Pinter also claimed he had 200M$ coming from China for his fund and wanted us to put 5M$ in the process with a BINDING LETTER OF INTENT.Without a presentation.

At the end of the day he wanted to become my exclusive financial advisor and provide financing for some properties in beverly hills that we were interested to buy so as we negotiated we passed him a Non BINDING letter of intent NON CONTRACTUAL AND CLEARLY STATED THAT IT WAS NOT A CONTRACT and this was just to see what kind of financing he could  bring on the table.

He claimed that he had a relation at ARES MANAGEMENT which was completely untrue as he never has directly done business with them and could give us a 4,5% brigde loan within 30 days which is again a lie since the best loan at the bank you can get from commercial is 4,69%.

Anyway,we did verify his license as a fincancial advisor and turned out he is unlicensed which is by the way a felony crime.

www.brokercheck.fina.org and you can check him out unlicensed with license number Andres P Pinter 5744304

So we very simply decided to stop all kind of business with him immediatelty as he lied about all and everything and he started his rampage of defamation and other slender.

N1) I never lived in Hollywood N2)I met this Guy 3 times in my life N3)He signed a NDA with us and clearly broke the rule N4) he has no idea on what he is talking about regarding my life or anything concerning me and N5) He left a message to my lawyers as defamation and slender on their own VOICEMAIL!

Andres Pinter is now subject to an investigation with the bureau for representing himself as a financial advisor and still trying to operate  under Ernst and young license when he knew he was terminated at the time we met him

You can contact Bruce Thompson directly at 818-68-1765 if he has tried to shake you down for some money or my lawyer James Blatt at 818-489-6500 with information concerning him

Be aware that this Pinter his a complete fraud and thats the truth.Proof is plain and simple,how do you represent your self as a financial advisor when your are unlicensed and this is a felony.


Be aware that

Panamerican Group web site

AUTHOR: RPax - ()

So this is almost comical.  Arnaud Massartic's web site for his "multi-billion oil empire", it turns out all of the language on the web site is stolen from other companies' web sites.

Here's Arnaud's web site:


Now check out the web site of some real oil & gas companies and look for the similarities in language:




If you Google any of the language on Arnaud Massartic's phoney oil web site, it's stolen from other web sites.  

Isn't there some copyright and trademark issues going on here???  When is the FBI going to get this guy?
