Pavel Krymov, Questra World founder to be extradited to Kazakhstan
In February, Russian authorities arrested Pavel Krymov at the behest of Kazakh authorities.
Krymov is believed to be behind the Questra World, Atlantic Global Asset Management, QW Lianora Swiss Consulting and Five Winds Ponzi schemes.
A hearing earlier this week has confirmed Krymov will be extradited to Kazakhstan.
Krymov is wanted for several fraud charges in Kazakhstan, with details of the investigation revealing Krymov’s investigation began in 2017.
Over 15 years of criminal activity, the fraudster has created more than 40 scams, which led to massive investigations around the world.
In the summer of 2017, several criminal cases were initiated against Krymov under Article 190 part 4 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Part of the reason Krymov, a Ukranian national, has been able to get away with scamming people for so long is regulation is virtually non-existent in Russia and the Ukraine.
Krymov is due for court on March 17th, after which he will be deported. He maybe facing up to 7 years in prison if deported.
