Vahram Daghestani Sam, Bear, also multiple variation of last name: Vahram Dugestani, Vahram, Dughestani, Vahram Daghas Vahram Daghestani committing Extortion, Death Threats, Bullying, Extreme Harassment, Black Mail, Stalking Vancouver BC
Vahram Daghestani, of Persian decent goes by Sam at the moment, though when we met - called himself Alex (later saying that he needs to trust people first before giving his real name because he's too honest and gets hurt all too often by the general public because he deals with large business transactions and prefers to remain invisible so people don't take advantage of his large wealth).
How I met 'Sam' was by walking into a Starbucks in Yaletown, which is also his hangout as he does not have a job (other than occassionly 'helping' his sweet mother and father in a small convenience store just slightly outside of Granville Island.) I am an entrepreneur, a socialite, always trying to build my network and for the most part I am a good judge of character, but Vahram strung me for a loop. He mentioned he had not seen me around the area and explained I used to live in the area and have gotten to know the neighborhood and even though my residence has changed, my choice of shopping has not. [continued below]....
We got to know each other fairly well then he asked to borrow money he mentioned how he's going through a divorce with his wife of 15 years and she froze all the accounts and he has no money (i had become his counsellor over time it had seemed) and he's waiting for lawyers to deal with his accounts and he needed to move out to a small apartment until things settled down. He also asked for it in American dollars, said that he needs to move to the US and clear his head because he has dual citizenship (later after receiving money saying that he is banned from the US and has a fake passport.) I went to the bank - withdrew the money (1000 american dollars), and when we were downtown and I drove him from the Starbucks to his moms at their granville convenience store and when I was done visiting I realized all the papers on my dash and seat were missing, I also looked in my glovebox looking for these papers that suddenly went missing and my registration papers for my car were also gone, I asked him where he put my things because I knew 100 percent they were there and he said "you should get your eyes checked" ...he seemed really distraut after I asked what was wrong and he exclaimed how sick to her stomach his mother was because of something that happened the night before. I asked what happened and he said he shot a guy that was trying to beat up his cousin and spent the night in jail (doesn't add up). I said that it didn't add up in any way and he talked about how he was in charge of all the major transporation of cocaine and has a gang history with the police and because of his huge connections some of the police are on his payrol. No holds bar, he just kept takling about his criminal history. Then I said, why did you wait until I helped you financially to tell me all of this - I trusted you. (He also started going on about how he's cut fingers off to get information out of people in Dubai...etc) He said that I was discriminating against him and his past doesn't equal his future. I said that his past was only just yesterday when he supposedly shot someone....I felt my heart racing and wanted to take off and then he said "But I suppose I deserve what I was told from the doctor the other day" and i replied "what?" and he said "colon cancer" .. I asked for how long he had known and he said a week but that he refuses to go for treatment and is not afraid of death.
Extremely quickly everything became a red flag and I was dissapointed in myself for even getting to know him as long as I had. A friend pulled in the driveway and explained he had just gotton out of jail and that he was head of anti terrorism for iran and was held in jail with Vahram until Vahram got out and this other man just recently got out - they were talking back and forth of stories of when they were in jail and how the guards were afraid of them and how Vahram always ended up in solitary confinement. Basically I was in complete shock, like a bad movie, wondering how I even ended up in this situation. A compilation between bad judgement and too easily trusting a stranger. I always assumed people were inheritantly good people until Vahram.
In between all of this we had met a couple friends of his, one seemed really kind - his friends owns a legit company in Yaletown but behind his back 'Sam' talks extremely poorly of him and his supposed viral diseases and the other guy was extremely sketchy. He also at one point tried getting me to put my car in his name and that if I did so he would put 200,000 in my account as collateral (my car is worth about 140) and I obviously refused to do so and then he said his best friend owns the dealership where I purchased my car and if something happened to it he would simply get me a brand new car. Continually refusing to put my car in his name he then eventually said he bought the exact car in blue but better than mine (even though my car just came out) and when I asked why he needed me to put mine in his name he said that he likes to see how much a person will trust him so that he in turn knows how much to trust that person.
Then he started hitting on me, when it was made clear I would never date him he said that I do not know a good person when I seen one. I explained how I no longer think it is a good idea that we continue to even be friends and the following things started to spiral from him:
A) Extortion (as i'm a public person - details will be given to certain people that request info) requests between 5-15000 dollars in exchange to not have my public career and my family destroyed OR I can be his 'girl' )
B) Stolen Property
C) Money owed
E) Continual phone calls and texts and emails mutiple times a day
F) Internet bullying
H) Physical violence and abuse on second last meeting (as the last meeting he had found me when I was in the downtown core and approached me and threatened me)
I) Threaten of property damage
I have filed a report, officers will have their eye in the area, and I have a restraining order against him, he continues to breach the restraining order. He is a compulsive liar, a sociopath. He makes illegal transacations selling and buying diamond rings, iphones, does check scams not only with complete strangers but with people who know and DID trust him. He is right about one thing...Vancouver IS a villiage and he does not have a good reputation.
