Ilya Kligman, Former Drug Kingpin and Arksbank Beneficiary, Linked to New Phishing Scam Businesses

2 Mins read

The financial world is once again shaken by the exposure of Ilya Kligman’s alleged involvement in multiple financial scams, embezzlement, and money laundering schemes. The notorious former Russian banker, also known as a fugitive, has been accused of organizing the withdrawal of billions of rubles from depositors and bank-owned securities belonging to Arksbank, among other financial institutions.

The Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) has revealed that over 55 billion rubles in damages have been filed against Ilya Kligman in the bankruptcy cases of Inkarobank, UM-Bank, Arksbank, Nevsky Bank, and Agrosoyuz LLC. Out of this amount, the Moscow Arbitration Court has successfully recovered 40.5 billion rubles in losses attributed to Kligman.

According to the investigation, Kligman, along with his accomplice Evgeny Urin, was allegedly involved in various fraudulent schemes to withdraw money from multiple banks, including Agrosoyuz Bank, Inkarobank, Gelendzhik Bank, Interkommerts Bank, Time Bank, and Antalbank. The total amount of money withdrawn from these banks exceeds a staggering 150 billion rubles.

The investigation also suggests that Kligman masterminded the theft of depositors’ funds, cleverly concealing them from the official accounting of the bank. Moreover, securities belonging to these financial institutions were also lost under mysterious circumstances, adding to the mounting evidence against Kligman.

Notably, Ilya Kligman left for Germany in 2016 when the Investigative Department of the TFR for the South-Western District of Moscow initiated an investigation into the alleged money theft from Arksbank. As of today, he remains on the international wanted list.

In response to these allegations, the Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal has seized Kligman’s assets totaling 2.5 billion rubles. However, the Moscow Arbitration Court recently rejected the DIA’s request to freeze his assets in certain credit organizations amounting to 10.049 billion rubles, citing a lack of concrete evidence.

This sensitive matter is currently under intense scrutiny, and authorities are working diligently to bring Kligman and his associates to justice. The investigation involves 18 criminal cases and has revealed Kligman’s alleged connection to Vladimir Barsukov (Kumarin), a prominent figure in the Tambov criminal organization.

Given the gravity of these allegations and the potential repercussions, the public is urged to exercise caution and vigilance in any financial transactions or dealings they may have involving Ilya Kligman or related entities.
