$100,000 Reward* GREGORY TINDALL

WANTED-GREGORY DENNIS TINDALL & PAMELA M. (Lovestead) TINDALL.

Greg & Pam Tindall

Greg & Pam Tindall

Between 2001 and 2009 GREGORY DENNIS TINDALL {DOB: 2 November 1960} and DALE JOSEPH EDGAR ST. JEAN {DOB: 8-May-1959} Citizens of Canada (Alberta), acted as the ‘Primary’ co-conspirators to defraud hundreds of investors from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and Europe of more than $80,000,000.00 (EIGHTY MILLION DOLLARS), in what is being referred to as one of the most Brazen “PONZI” Schemes in Canadian history.

On or about September 8 2010, GREGORY “Greg” TINDALL and his wife PAMELA “Pam” M. (Lovestead) TINDALL sold their house in the Crystal Shores area of Okotoks, Alberta for $975,000 after putting it on the market in May 2010.

The couple subsequently fled Alberta, along with their two adopted children SHYLER & MIKALA.

Family members concerned for the safety and well being of the children have contacted law-enforcement to report that they consider the children to be endangered.  People close to the Children have stated that it is HIGHLY unusual that the children have not attempted to make no contact although strong relationships were the norm prior to the families disappearance.

The Tindalls may have altered their appearance and that of the Children as well.

If anyone has information regarding the welfare and location of the children you are URGED to contact this forum!

(Additional Photos of the missing children are included below)

GREG TINDALL and his wife remain fugitives and are likely living under assumed identities. Ongoing search efforts are focused on a number of foreign jurisdictions.

  A “Red Notice” is said to be imminent.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol_notice

PAMELA originates from Saskatchewan Canada. The children, Shyler & Mikala-now approx. 16 and 20 years-old respectively have always been home schooled.

PAMELA also has an adult biological daughter residing in Calgary who was born prior to her marriage to GREG TINDALL, for the sake of privacy identified only as RC.

GREG’s family & mother reside in the Okanagan {Kelowna} area of British Columbia, relations in GREG’s family may be strained.

PAMELA’s family with whom relations seem stronger reside in her ‘home’ Province of Saskatchewan.

Pamela’s Sisters {LANA NJAA & ROBYN KONDRATOWICZ} came to Okotoks to help move household belongings when the TINDALL’s fled, they likely know of the suspects whereabouts.

Shortly after fleeing Canada, TINDALL sold a ski type boat to a US citizen in Nebraska without proper paperwork. A criminal complaint is pending.

Investigators close to the case conclude from the outset, that TINDALL was the guiding mind and principle of the scheme  who controlled and facilitated the ‘laundering’ and secretion of the illicit proceeds of the crime.

 

DETAILS OF THE FRAUD:
TINDALL and ST. JEAN founded numerous “Shell” companies under their two Flagship entities firstly TRANSBANC {circa 2001-2005} then changed the name to TRANSCAP {2005 forward} following Canadian regulatory action.

The Suspects formed an additional company-STRATA TRADE as an “exempt market” vehicle in order to make their fraudulent enterprises eligible to solicit and accept RRSP {retirement accounts} investments into the Scheme.

Witnesses and victims describe GREG TINDALL as a semi-intelligent and aloof man who seemed close only to his ‘immediate’ family. 

TINDALL was known to wager both on stocks and online gambling sites and enjoy watching MMA fighting matches and “go-cart” racing.

For reasons unknown-as the scheme began to collapse, ST. JEAN voluntarily took responsibility and acted as the “fall-guy” and  “patsy” for TINDALL.

Witnesses who knew both TINDALL and ST. JEAN stated; TINDALL had very little respect for ST. JEAN, openly talked down and disparagingly about ST. JEAN considering him to be easily manipulated.

The contention of many is that TINDALL recognized St. JEAN as a person he could control and manipulate. The fact that ST. JEAN’s wife {PRISCILLA Wolfe} was an ‘Investment Manager’ may have motivated TINDALL to bring them into the fold.

In early 2006, St. JEAN made statements in ‘confidence’ to witnesses that TINDALL was not providing funds to pay interest payments and that he was forced to use new investors money to make redemption payments.

None of the facts herein are meant to absolve DALE St. JEAN of criminal culpability. Had he not have known at the beginning that the scheme was built on false promises and lies, he certainly knew a significant time before the collapse and was happy to entice new Investors.

 

TIER-2 “Parties of Interest”:
RONALD NORMAN LITTLE {St. JEANS “chief-lieutenant”-prime broker who earned approx. $3M +/- in illicit commissions-is said to be residing in Swan Lake Campground – 7235 Old Kamloops Rd, Vernon BC }

D. GENO BRUNTON {California ‘businessman’ associate of St. Jean & Tindall who elicited approx. $1M from victims in a fraudulent recovery scheme.}

SHERI PIDKOWA {Executive assistant/Bookkeeper for TransCap living in Calgary Alberta}

BLAIR CARMICHAEL {Principle broker for TransCap-netted over $1M in commissions from the sales of the illicit investment}

JIM LANTZ {Principle & Partner broker to Blair Carmichael-netting over $700,000.00 in Commissions}

RICHARD W. DEVRIES {Attorney/Canadian living in the Bahamas who was involved in the initial formation and structure of the scheme}

 

Should anyone have information pertaining to the location of GREG & PAMELLA TINDALL or evidence against them please contact this forum.

Additional information including a full report of the investigation and criminal actions are forthcoming.

 

MESSAGE TO DALE ST. JEAN or GREGORY TINDALL: Should you wish to resolve this matter without further actions you are advised to contact [email protected] immediately.

 

(*A reward UP TO $100,000.00 is being offered based on production of credible information leading to the location/capture and/or recovery of an established amount of the stolen money. A progressive or negotiable reward is also being offered for credible information leading to just the location of TINDALL and his family and/or facilitation of recovery.)

Mark (aka: “Zio”) Segovia & Betty Segovia

Mark Segovia is now calling himself “Zio” Segovia

(Zio-meaning Uncle or Slang for Brother in Togo western Africa)

Accomplice/Co-conspirators”

Mark Segovia

Mark Segovia (“ZIO” or “Uncle” Segovia)

Kurt Bowker, Lidio Rancharan
(Other accomplice’s names being withheld pending further investigation)
DBA: Vault LLC & “Grupo Bannorth” Banking Services, Panama.

Will steal your money! In this case they stole over $1,600,000.00 and did
knowingly cause losses to investors in excess of $2 Million Dollars

They will promise you they can effect major financial transactions
or investments with incredible returns then rob you blind!

Here’s the summary of the case:

Lidio Rancharan

Lidio Rancharan

In February of 2006, numerous potential investors/victims attended an investment seminar in the state of Washington put on by a group out of Vancouver, WA. One of the local presenters was a man by the name of Kurt Bowker. Other local names are currently being withheld pending further investigation. It is now understood that none of the persons involved in marketing the investment product were licensed to do so.

The investment proposal was purported to produce a high yield with a monthly cash flow using Life Insurance Policies that the group would purchase and subsequently sell at a profit to institutional investors. Then the group would see a return of their investment to the tune of 15-30% monthly.

Based on the convincing presentation, written prospectus and the name-dropping of investment companies like Fidelity, the group bought into the pitch. Over the next several weeks the group put together approximately $2.3 Million Dollars to invest in this scheme.

The group was told initially that the funds invested were being used to purchase 3 life insurance policies, 2 policies with a $10 Million benefit and one with a $3 Million dollar benefit payout for a total of $23 Million US Dollars. Ultimately, the promised returns never came to fruition.

Later it was discovered that these same Life Insurance Policies were utilized by Lidio Rancharan to bilk investors out $100’s of Thousands of dollars from a separate group of victims in Canada.

Early on in the first few months of the scheme, some or the Washington affiliated investors became nervous and were actually able to withdraw or recover approx. $350,000.00.

When returns did not begin as promised, the group began pressuring the local, Vancouver Washington accomplices who finally admitted that they were not in control of the subject policies. In fact the policies were under the control of “Vault LLC” company that was owned by Mark and Betty Segovia who seem to bounce around from the states of New York, Georgia, Arizona, California to Panama.

Shortly after this realization, in September of 2006 the first of many weekly conference calls were held with Mark Segovia/ZIO Segovia. During these calls Segovia continued promising to make good on the investments with various other “Deals” he was making, always indicating that even though the policies hadn’t been turned over for a profit that they still existed and the investors money was secure.

This was the story from Mark Segovia (Zio Segovia) up until the first months of 2008. It was around this time that the investors learned that Mark Segovia had allowed the all three of the Life Insurance Policies to lapse by failing to pay the premiums. On top of that the Segovia’s “Gutted” the cash value of the policies to the tune of $1,600,000.00 and absconded with the money that was rightly the property of the investors.

Once the investors confirmed and collected sufficient evidence to support their findings, they confronted Segovia, who is currently “on the lamb” residing in Panama acting as a financial consultant for Grupo Bannorth Bank. Once confronted with the overwhelming evidence, Mark Segovia conceded that he had indeed drained the cash value from the policies and allowed all of the policies to lapse. . It was also learned that Bowker was allegedly paid off by Segovia to the tune of $250,000.00 and then fled Washington and started another business in Arizona.

Victims of this scam at one point were advised by the Segovia’s, that they were represented by one Mr. Albert Coleman, an attorney out of the Atlanta area. When contacted Mr. Coleman denied any personal involvement in the scam to the victims, however did supply significant information and documentation as to his role and involvement in the set-up and structure of Segovia’s web of business entities.

As late as January 2009, Mark (Zio) and Betty Segovia continue to make empty promises to return the stolen money. But, it is apparent that all have been just a ploy to stall and put off the investors in hopes that they will not actually take any action and just go away.

International Fraud Alert spoke with an official at the GlobalAdvocates.ch, who advised that they had been brought into the matter by one of the investors to examine the issue from a criminal perspective and attempt to possibly mediate the situation to resolution.

IFA has concluded from the information from various sources that Mark Segovia (Zio Segovia) continues to attempt to entice others from his hideout in Panama City, Panama. In fact it is alleged that Mark-Zio Segovia lives a very highlife on the backs of unsuspecting victims with promises of riches and financial success. Our belief is that Segovia does nothing more than entice, induce and scam unsuspecting victims into being defrauded out of their hard earned money.

In fact IFA has learned that this incident is not the first time that Mark Segovia’s nefarious activities have caught up with him. If would seem that he was party to a legal action in 2004 in Federal Court for allegedly the same type of conduct against a Mr. Peter Fagan and Comanche Investments the court issued a judgment against Segovia for approximately $500,000.00.

Mark Segovia is described as: Black Male, approx. 47 yoa, with a dark complexion, 5’10-6’00 ft tall, 180-200 lbs, likes to dress in expensive clothes and speaks with a slight European/Caribbean accent and a silver tongue.

Betty Segovia: is believed to work as a flight attendant out of the Atlanta area on route(s) between Phoenix and San Diego, CA.

Bottom-line WARNING to the public, BEWARE of Mark (aka: Zio) and Betty Segovia, Lidio Rancharan or anyone associated with them. These crooks will claim to be able to assist you in making large sums of money in their investment programs and it is a scam they will take your money laughing all the way to the bank, leaving you broke.
