Victor S. Voronov (CIS Capital Holdings)

Male, 28 years old. 
D.O.B: xx-xx-xxxx
Currently residing in New Jersey
Formerly: New York, NY.  Atlanta (Duluth), GA
Spouse: John "Johnny" G. Weir


Email accounts:

Former employers:
Chadbourne & Parke LLP, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY, 10112

Victor S. Voronov operated a fraudulent/fake investment company called CIS Capital Holdings from 2007 to 2009. His targets were primarily friends, colleagues, former classmates, roommates, and acquaintances. Using the relationship of trust he had acquired with these people, he would con them into believing that he was running a very successful investment company. He would talk about the thousands of dollars each of his 'investors' had made in such a short time, and talk about his investment strategies at length (in person or over the phone). He would send his victims to one of his numerous websites, which were filled with fake graphs and performance reports showing companies like KAZ, WBD, MTL. He would also send a fraudulent 'prospectus' that detailed the structure of the investment, the type of investments being made, etc. He was very careful not to put any promise of earnings on paper, but would do so at length over the phone or in person. Promises of 25-50% returns in a few months, for example. 

When he was certain that he had enticed his victims with an offer that seemed too good to refuse, he would request a wire transfer of the funds ($5,000 - $15,000) to his bank account. ABA XXXXXXXX, US BANK, 721 Locust Street, St-Louis, MO, 63101 (Further credit to: Victor Voronov, AC XXXXXXXX). 

From that point on, exactly what happened to the money is still unknown. But regularly Mr. Voronov would contact his 'investors' by phone and email and talk at length about the performance of the investments. The numbers quoted were in the range of 23%-48% growth. This would sometimes be accompanied by falsified graphs and performance data that back up his story. 

Eventually when the investors asked to receive official reports or cash out, they were met with ignored calls and emails and delays. Eventually Mr. Voronov cut off all communication (changed phone numbers, email addresses, blocked users from Facebook, etc.). Many months went by without any response from him regarding the status of the invested money or when the investors could get their money back. 

Eventually, one by one, the investors were contacted by phone by Victor Voronov's father, Anatoly "Tony" Voronov (owner of CIS Ventures, Inc.). Investors were informed that Victor has been admitted to a drug rehabilitation clinic (for addiction to amphetamines) and would not be able to communicate with anyone for 3-6 months. The actual duration of the rehabilitation, according to his father, lasted approximately 9 months at a private drug rehab clinic near Altanta, GA. 

Through various sources it was eventually discovered that Victor Voronov had spent most of the money on drugs and gambling in casinos in Atlantic City. Voronov is a known gambling addict and poker player (http://vicklanta.blogspot.com/2004/12/racism-at-poker-table.html#comments)

Since 2009, communication from Victor has been sparse. He responds to the occasional email with more delays, lies, and promises to pay back the money in the future.  Also, he occasionally sends intimidating emails to his investors threatening legal action for defamation if any of us contacts the authorities or publishes anything online about him. 

He is a graduate of Emory Univeristy and Georgetown Law. He passed the NY bar exam, but was not admitted to the bar following a review from the Bar's ethics committee due to the fraudulent investment scam that he operated and the vast sums of money he still owes to the investors he conned. He recently married former Olympic figure skater, John G. "Johnny" Weir. The couple lives in New Jersey. Victor Voronov is currently studying for the New Jersey Bar exam, and plans on becoming an attorney in the State of New Jersey.

Victor Voronov has also been arrested numerous times for DUI. (http://beaconcastmedia.com/crime/Man-Fudges-Facts-on-Alleged-Robbery-2642#Victor_Voronov)

Be warned if you come in contact with Victor Voronov: he is very intelligent and social. He knows how to charm people and befriend them easily. He easily gains the trust of those around him, and then takes advantage of them. Do not believe anything this man says, he is a known con artist and is an expert in mind games and knows how to take advantage of his victims. He is easily able to convince them to hand over large sums of money as "investments" or "loans", neither of which are ever returned.

This "investigation" has been going on for how long? If your suspect was in fact suspect, he'd be caught by now. Truth is the entire Voronov family is in big trouble, and no amount of posting threats to anyone, anywhere will solve anything, Victor. Or is this his cousin; since both are aces at making and posting threats to people who find them and their family out and call them out on issue. Stop.

Catching Up With Victor Voronov

AUTHOR: gotcha - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, April 22, 2014

When this report first came out, no one believed it. All of Weir's fans scrambled around trying to explain it away and defend Victor. Blind leading the blind. Now there's a divorce, and all of a sudden people are paying attention. Guess the original author wasn't crazy after all, just a guy trying to get his money back.

Let's get all the truth out there. Victor is still trying to con people, but it looks like it's not going so well for him. Radar Online wised up and dug into his background, they found all the charges in GwinnettCounty from when he attacked his own mother.


According to court records obtained by Radar, around 5:30 p.m. on April 1, 2009, Voronov and his mother Lilya got into a brutal fight. According to prosecutors, Voronov “did intentionally damage [his mother's] black Prada purse … by grabbing it, tearing it, said damage exceeding five hundred dollars.” In the process, he “did intentionally cause physical harm to [his mother],” prosecutors claimed in the affidavit, “by shoving her and holding her down, and by grabbing her purse from her hand causing an abrasion to her left thumb.”

As his mother tried to escape and call the authorities, he allegedly “did physically hinder [her] from completing a 911 call … to request police protection,” the documents claim.

Voronov was arrested for criminal damage, theft (for taking the purse), simple battery by causing physical harm, false imprisonment, and obstruction of a 911 call.

You can look it up for yourself.


You can read the courts docs for yourself.


Examiner has more. Victor isn't just a scumbag, he's a drug addict scumbag.


Police arrested Victor and charged him with criminal damage, theft, simple battery, false imprisonment, and obstruction of a 911 call. Bond was set at $1,300, which Victor paid, but special conditions went along with his release. He was to “stay away, absolutely, directly or indirectly, by person, telephone, messenger, or any other means of communication from Lilya Voronov.” He has to “stay away from the victim’s home, school, and place of business or routes of travel to or from those locations."

Other stipulations include that Victor has obey the local, state and federal laws. He can go back to his mother’s house one time with law enforcement for his personal belongings. He had to consent to random drug and alcohol testing, and to abstain from drinking alcohol and using any drugs without a prescription. Victor was required to check into the Talbott Recovery Campus or other inhouse residential treatment program and complete 30 days of treatment.

He got off because his parents hired fancy lawyer Peter Odom. Now you know why this scum ended up in rehab for most of 2009.

Then he got 4 DUIs after rehab and he's on probation for some of those right now. He sure posts a lot of photos of him drinking alcohol for a guy whose supposed to be going to weekly 12-step meetings. You can look that up too.

Some advise for the author of this report

AUTHOR: LegallyYours - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, October 24, 2012

I'd like to offer a nickels' worth of important advice to the author of this report against Victor S. Voronov. No doubt you and the other investors who trusted Victor Voronov were taken. After research, I discovered some facts I'd like to share. 

The State of Georgia and The Bar Association reports that as of late September of this year, they have no record of a Victor Voronov on file.  Further, there is no cross-reference on file with regards to any name change (Weir-Voronov). They have no record of him as a licensed lawyer, attorney, esquire or para-legal nor have they ever heard of him in the past. So, if he did offer you or any individual any legal advice of any kind, please be advised he gave legal advice and services without a license from the State of Georgia as required by law.

When you contact the State of New Jersey and the State of New York, they report the same as the State of Georgia; they never heard of Victor Voronov. So again, if he is currently practicing law in New York, as he claims to on his Linkedin page, or in New Jersey, know that he is doing this without a license from each State, New Jersey and New York, as required by law. I'm surprised he hasn't already stood before a Circuit-Civil Judge for trial and sentencing, as yet. He should. He really should. I hope your class action lawsuit is successful. Good luck.
