IN A NUTSHELL:
In December 2015 two payments totalling $43,490 were initiated to "The Office of Sean Thurman", allegedly owned by a TD Bank's client named Sean Larvonde Thurman. Following up on the Remittance Information provided by the banks, "/INV/ WARNER INVESTMENTS DEAL-5 STOCK SALE/2897" and "/INV/3012 WARNER DEAL TAX I ANNUAL IRS TAX FOR V ERA SOFT", as well as the Invoices provided by Sean Thurman himself, several months later I found that: 1. There was no "office of Sean Thurman" and there had never been any, either active or defunct 2. Sean Thurman had nothing to do with the "Warner Investments", stock purchases or any other investments at all 3. Sean Thurman's TD Bank account had nothing to do with investments or stock purchases 4. The "Warner Investments" and the Internal Revenue Service had nothing to do with any of the Invoices provided by Sean Thurman The very next month, in January 2016, Sean Thurman changed his name to John Guerrier De'Bey. Sean Thurman was obligated to report his name change to TD Bank. The fake "Warner Investments" deals, fake invoices, fake company's bank account, fake broker receiving $43,000 from a company abroad changing his name shortly after the wire transfer had been made... All this information was available to TD Bank and it should have rung the bell, but the Bank's officers seem to have had no idea what transactions they let go through the system. John Guerrier De'Bey a.k.a. Sean Thurman is suspected of submission of forged, falsified and altered documents. Vladimir Milicev, CEO of VIDYPS 79, contacted the State of New York, Department of Financial Services and the Bank demanding an explanation.
