Holding Criminals Accountable — Part I — Sirius Crimes Reported to British Authorities, Formally Registered With References (Many Victims), Here's What It Means and What Happens Next

Series parts:

  1. YOU ARE HERE ☞ Sirius Crimes Reported to British Authorities, Formally Registered With References (Many Victims), Here's What It Means and What Happens Next

Meme on crime: The secret ingredient is crime.

Summary: Sirius is a good case study, especially for longtime insiders; Techrights investigates what it takes to deal with white-collar crime, starting with evidence-gathering to investigation and prosecution (maybe we'll have some mugshots to share at the end)

PENSION fraud seems rather common in the UK. Companies like pension providers profit from it. It seems to be happening routinely. So much so that it is a special category with loads of options. How many people in the UK report pension fraud each year? Probably a lot.

The crimes of Sirius 'Open Source' go beyond pension fraud, but we'll focus on pensions here. Sirius isn't so unique in this regard, but there are points to note. The CEO escaped the company last month, but people below processed the payslips with fake claims of pension payments adding up. These payslips were basically lies. The company, Sirius, offered us a pension that did not exist. This was done not just to me but also to my colleagues; there are similar letters sent to them too, with accompanying payslips to demonstrate the glaring anomaly.

"Now the company is in hiding, without a physical office."For over 5 years the company deducted money, for "pension" (arranged by Sirius, with alleged contributions of its own), but the money was not given to the pension provider, as formally confirmed by the pension provider itself (final response issued and challenged a week ago).

The company kept deducting for "pensions", for another about 4 years, after it no longer even had any records with the pension provider (see letter).

The company refused to talk about this, even when inquiries came from former staff a long time ago. Now the company is in hiding, without a physical office. The company's CEO abruptly left last month (when all this was exposed and verified by the pension provider).

"NDAs are legally dubious, especially where the D refers to disparagement rather than disclosure."There are at least 3 people who participated in this embezzlement. It must be acted upon urgently as they may be hiding money and tampering with evidence.

As we noted a day ago, there's an upcoming series about the deception as the company may have engaged in debt/tax dodge/bankruptcy. All those pertinent shells of the company can be connected to a secret deal with Bill Gates, signed with an NDA in 2019. They basically use a legal contract to hide potentially illegal deals. NDAs are legally dubious, especially where the D refers to disparagement rather than disclosure.

I've had a lot of time to speak to other victims of this. "Mine is pretty much the same," one of them said regarding the trail of documents. "So it looks like basically nothing ever got paid in to the Standard Life scheme and our contributions were never made from the start, they were just kept instead. I think the only way to get anything back would be to sue Sirius and/or wait for the police to investigate."

"Well, the police will find out there are too many victims to ignore."The police is already investigating. "I have most of my payslips so I can prove I was making contributions," said a former colleague, "have you already provided similar to the police?"

Well, the police will find out there are too many victims to ignore.

If you phone the police, as I have a few months ago, you quickly realise they don't want to deal with such crime and instead ask you to report to Action Fraud. It won't be cheap. It is based in the City of London and would likely progress very slowly as it's not "strategic" or "high priority" to them. However, now that we have a lot more letters and many victims they cannot simply brush this aside. I've got more than just the payslips with me. With cooperation at Standard Life perhaps they can get a detailed list of all the victims and manage to get in touch with all of them.

So what happens next? Stay tuned for Part II.
