Tony Habib of GFIC-SA in Brazil worked with Louis Roman of Glacier International Depository Bank in 2007 in order to issue $25 million loan to a real estate project in New Jersey, USA.  Habib and Roman were introduced as the highly successful lenders by a loan broker, Bill Thomas in FL, USA.

According to the contract, GID Bank was to issue a SBLC in the amount of $25M and based on that, GFIC was to approved the loan and pay the amount to the project after receiving the escrow deposit from me.  After confirming all the conditions through a lawyer and a broker, I wired $1.25M deposit money along with $50,000 extension fee.
$375,000 was wired to GID Bank and $875,000 to GFIC by my attorney in June 2007.

However, after receiving the money, GID Bank immediately demanded additional documents to fulfill the requirements of the loan even though all the parties confirmed that all the conditions to issue the loan were met before the deposit was wired.  The documents GID Bank demanded were impossible to get within their required time frame and they both walked away with the $1.25M deposit money plus $50,000 fee after a few weeks of arguments and lip-service online.

I sued GID Bank since GFIC was out of the US but one of the top law firms I hired could not even locate GID Bank.  Even through I have a $2.7M default judgment against GID Bank, there is no way I can collect the money.

My lawyers are positive that both Tony Habib and Louis Roman are con artists ripping of money internationally.  The loss is too much and I am broke due to their fraudulent loan scheme.  I don't know where they are and how they use the stolen money.  I hope that they do not deceive other innocent people and cause such a damage.  Hopefully, they will be brought to justice soon.
