Dear All:

I am currently investigating Stephanie Hillman (Bonino) in the Ottoman Group under the suspicion of investment fraud and in dialogue with National Futures Association, CFTC, United States Attorney’s Office New York.

It appears that Stephanie Hillman is fronting an investment fraud where investors internationally are being solicited with the aim of conducting wire fraud, attorney law fraud, federal securities fraud and violating regulation D. A series of lenders have also been contacted by the group for unsecured loans with no ability to repay these. The Ottoman Group is listed with large losses in previous yearly management reports.

Accomplices from the Ottoman Group (who is also registered as The Firm, OGI, SA, Lynx) are as follows: Dustin Collins, John Schneider, Robert Goodwin, Carter Hammer, Jacques Allouf, Sonny Lee, Bruno Homero Parra Bravo, Jeffrey Miller, Winston Wei,. [continued below]....


Iain Horburgh, Peter Swartz, James Valentino, John Grounds, Noel Brown, Marcus Braga Magarian, George Medina, Stephen Freilich, Ephraim Wainaina, Bernard Oyama, Kristofer L. Harrison, Alexander Blum, Ann Thomas, Bradley Winter, (((REDACTED)))   , Ray Commisso and Isaak Ofori.               

If your name is listed above, please be informed that the syndicate has been known to use professionals’ names in campaigns when marketing and selling their scam.

 Note how this scammer is shooting herself in the foot: 1.All the names above are reported as their associates in the marketing brochure and on the internet. After contacting them all, only 1 out of 10 confirm they have an active relationship with these scammers. 2.Anyone with access to financial reports can see they reported a loss of over $9 000 000 in the last financial year. Is that reflective of a thriving company with over $5 000 000 000 in assets? 3.Note how Stephanie Hillman – who supposedly manages the operation – is trying to distance herself from the company. “Honor, Integrity and Humility”. And "Scams"? LoL After our initial campaign, we have been contacted by a number of groups, individuals and companies who have been exposed to their scam. We now have enough evidence to report it to the banking network, and ensure they fail any background checks and DD. By the end of the month, it should be impossible for them to progress any more fraudulent bank guarantees, secure credit lines and continue their scam. This criminal organization is clutching on straws. The FBI and SEC are involved in the investigation, and I encourage anyone with questions, comments or similar experiences with these fraudsters to contact me at lisa.craydon1984@gmail.com. As a footnote, do a google search on their names – they are all over the web with scam and fraud notices. And she is right, it is impossible to remove these notices allowing us to prevent their next victims from falling in their scam trap. Lisa

LISA CRAYDON is using a fake name and picture posing as an attorney / partner of Sullivan and Cromwell law firm, who recently confirmed she has never worked there.  She also claims to be a prior employee/Attorney at Simpson and Thacher, who also confirmed she was never an employee.  (Both firms are currently looking into this misrepresentation)

Picture used by Lisa Craydon on linked in is a Lisa Fisher Phychologist.

  She is listed on linked in with a fake picture which when goggled comes up under a different name. she also created a fake Face Book page.   This person is making false allegations stating that I'm under investigation by her and  including my clients personal name and business name stating we are working together in specific fraudulent dealings, Mind you, dealings that are not even in the scope of what I do for my client or what my clients firm offers.  This Poser also lists names of so called accomplices that are not even a part of this firm nor do business with this firm. 

This imposter has been trying to discredit my client and defame anyone associated with him for months.  They even went as far as writing slanderous comments on linked in using various fake names. NOTE: Linked In researched the trail of slanderous posts and various fraudulent subscribers and found they all emanate from the same person.  Linked IN has REMOVED any and all comments or links to slander regarding me or my clients firm, along with her membership and profile.   Google has also researched these findings and has agreed to remove the Google links from their site. 

If anyone has ever tried to have a post removed on linked- in or better yet Google, then you know it is virtually impossible to get removed!! The ONLY way to have slanderous statements removed without breaching the 1st amendment “Freedom of Speech” is the sites they are listed on MUST find substantial evidence “beyond a reasonable doubt”  that the comments are both slanderous and false…This WAS concluded in their findings.

I sincerely hope the above information confirms that this poser has been exposed for trying to discredit my reputation via fraudulent and defamatory posts.    I have always conducted myself and my business with Honor, Integrity and Humility which my colleagues and clients will attest to.
