Bank of Montreal refutes the claims of END’s “trillionaires” that they“deposited with them $ 600 billion in the name of Greece

New York. – By Apostolis Zoupaniotis

With a laconic denial, the Press Officer of the Bank of Montreal Ralph Marranca, (Corporate Media Relations, ralph.marranca @ bmo.com, tel.: 416-867-4995)

http://www.bmo.com/home/about/banking/corporate-information/media-contacts),

refutes the allegations of the Chairman of the organization END (End National Debt doctor Manolis Lambrakis and “donor / investor” Artemis Sorras, that they have deposited in CDRs (Custodian Deposit receipts) from IBOEs (international bills of exchange) based on US Treasury Bills (U.S. Treasury bonds) valued at the maturity at 650 billion U.S. dollars in their banking institution.

On Sunday, Oct. 7, in a radio program of Astoria based station Hellas FM with Helen Gkiogka, Dr Lambrakis submitted to the announcer a ‘document’ to read, that stated this contention. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Lambrakis said, “throwing the glove” at Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras:

“If Mr. Stournaras is not willing to test the offer, we will take with us to Greece the director of the Bank of Montreal, along with Mr. Diamantopoulos (AKA Anthony Diamond of the “Diamond & Diamond”), before all Greek the media, to declare that a deposit of $600 billion has been made for Greece in Canada. And they can get it anytime. “LAMBRAKIS-peri_montreal

We assume that this visit to Greece has been already canceled and that these people stop this insanity that created a frenzy in Greece.

Dear Mrs Brown

 

My name is Apostolos Zoupaniotis, I am the Publisher and Editor of Greek News, a bilingual Greek American weekly newspaper based in Astoria, NY.

I am a bit embarrassed to raise this question with you, but the issue I refer to has created a big fuss in Greece. A gentleman named Artemios Sorras announced an “offer” to lend the Greek government the amount of $600 billion. The funds are in IBOEs payable in US Treasury bonds maturing in August 2014.

This Mr Sorras named few Toronto based companies that are “involved” in the deal, one Diamond & Diamond MBG of Mr Anthony Diamond (with quite few cases in the courts), one “Federal Stock Transfer and Custody Agents, Inc.” of a Mr Greg Pappas and a “Federal Funding & Investments Group, Inc.” of one Mr Peter Terzakis.

The “document” attached was revealed by a Greek MP who received it from these people and represents their offer. Now those” triillionaires” claimed to the press that the “custodian” Mr Pappas opened two of – what he call – CDRs (He said Custodial Deposit Receipt I suppose), one for 600 BILLION USD for Greece and 50 BILLION USD for Cyprus.

In all seriousness could you please tell me if you have any knowledge of this? Do you plan to take any legal action in the case there is a fraud?

Best Regards

Yes, Alexis advised that you had called to follow up on reports that individuals or organizations had made a deposit of $600 bn to BMO.  These reports are not credible.  Beyond that we have no further comment.

  1. I.C. France says:

    There are 1.4 million Greek-Americans, according to the American Community Survey, and 400,000 people with Greek origins in the UK. Estimates of the size of the Greek diaspora vary between 3-7 million people worldwide.These figures tell us that there has been something terribly wrong with the culture for a very long time, the fundamental fatal flaws in Greek society did not appear yesterday. A country that its citizens choose to leave in such vast numbers is certainly doomed. A bad apple rots from the inside out and the rancid stench of Greece’s internal decay is becoming more noticeable day by day. A failed country and a failed people can not be revived by throwing some Euros their way any more than beggar on the street can be rehabilitated by someone tossing a few coins in their tin cup.

    This looks better. Use the right language and we don’t have problem with posting your poison.
    Now that you have made your point, I believe you are a totally sick person and we won’t ever post anything from you.

  3. terry fraser says:

    if i was going to deposit any large amount of assets it would already be in hard assets,so why deposit paper,bank cant insure somthing that cant be recreated by your furtune if its lost or stolen because you cant get it back just like the bank.Anyway , most people are private and dont go telling everyone they meet their a millionaire or billionaire and they all have done it diferently or else everyone could easily be one.If i was i trillionaire then i would have billionaire knocking at my door for advice ,when would it stop,just when you think your finished.take care.Just a point everyone puts their open thoughts on the net which should be PRIVATE,nobodies buisness.

    Εσείς δεν είστε Έλληνες. Βρέθηκε ένα παλικάρι να σταθεί απέναντί τους και να πολεμήσει κι αντί να συστρατεύτειτε μαζί του (έχει δεν έχει λεφτά), τον πολεμάτε. Εμένα δεν με ενδιαφέρει φράγκο να μην έχει.

  6. Mr. Anthony Diamond appears to have several judgments against him including contempt court wherein he has being given hefty fines and jail terms. He claims to be a banker worth 3 billion dollars but defaulted in a invoice for 757.00 dollars for which he was sued by me . I have been give n to understand from his landlords that he has defaulted in paying his rent and was therefore kicked out of his office at 18 Wynford drive, Toronto. I have a judgment against him which I am trying to enforce. I and am willing to give copies of the judgment to anyone who desires to use the copy.
    His current whereabouts are not known. He now claims to have to moved to Montreal. I would appreciate if anyone who has information on him to post it on line so as to enable people chasing him to track him down.
