Seve Lipman of Sherman Oaks, California represented to us that he was the exclusive agent for a fund that was looking to place large amounts of money as loans to projects in the United States.  My partners and I proceeded to submit loan requests including detailed business plans to Mr. Lipman who (according to him) approved them for funding.  They were then sent to Mr. Giles Disney who was the individual who was lending the money. Mr. Disney proceeded to sent over loan documents in his company name Blue Dragon Financial Consulting Ltd. located in the UK.

Documents were executed between our clients and Blue Dragon.  Mr. Lipman stated that he investigated Mr. Disney and verified  that Blue Dragon had hundred of Millions of dollars in their account to effect the loans.  It was then that Mr. Disney asked our client to wire $15,000 to his account to pay for Swift Fees from the bank.  He produced a document stateing that the bank would charge this amount to Swift the full amount of the loan to our client.  When we objected, Mr. Disney stated that per his agreement with the Bank, he could not pay this fee, that it had to come from the recipient of the loan proceeds. However, he made an agreement with the bank where the recipient could pay half now and half on receipt of the loan proceeds.

Meanwhile, Mr. lipman insisted that he had researched Mr. Disney and that Mr. Disney was legit.  One of Lipman's clients who had been approved for a loan had paid his swift fees and had received his loan proceeds as promised.  I suppose that we should have become suspicious when Mr. Lipman was unable to connect us with his client who had received his loan proceeds to verify such.

Anyway, Upon insistance that the Swift fees would be refunded by Mr. Disney if the money was not sent to our clients account and an agreement for the same, our client agreed to wire the $7500.00 "Swift fee" to Mr. Disney. Our client really wanted to get this loan funded, but I did not want him to risk his money on my say so, therefore, i sent our client money to send to Blue Dragon and Disney for the Swift Fees.

Needless to say, once the money was wired to Disney, no loan funds were sent to our client and Disney and Lipman stopped taking our calls.

Not sure of next step from here, but doing this so others will be on the lookout for these two scammers.
