Imtiaz Aslam’s escape to Dubai has been confirmed by The Traffic Monsoon Receiver.
The information was disclosed in a July 19th-filed request to serve Aslam via alternate service.
In 2019, the Receiver sued Aslam (right) and other Traffic Monsoon net-winners.
Following fruitless traditional attempts to achieve service, the Receiver made the motion.
The Receiver had information that Aslam was residing in Manchester, England in 2019 from a variety of outside sources, including a professional asset report that the Receiver had acquired.
However, the initial efforts to physically serve Aslam with the summons and complaint were unsuccessful. Aslam was thought to be avoiding duty.
In early to mid-2020, the pandemic made it challenging to perform monitoring on Aslam or to get continuing information from government institutions.
To serve Aslam with the summons and complaint, the Receiver, through her counsel, hired a more specialized investigative firm in early summer 2020 to determine Aslam’s whereabouts. The firm informed the Receiver that Aslam would have multiple points of presence in Manchester at least through late October 2020.
Although it was strongly believed that Aslam was located in Manchester, service could not be effectuated.
Aslam was discovered in the Middle East in October 2021, and the Receiver was notified that he was residing in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in January 2022.
Aslam has been evasive despite the Receiver’s best efforts to personally serve him with the summons and complaint in this instance, therefore service has been impossible.
Aslam is thought to be presently residing in a country that is not a signatory to the Hague Convention on the Service of Process in the Foreign States.
By using “all physical addresses, email accounts, and WhatsApp accounts that” she has connected to Aslam, the Receiver now tries to serve him.
The Receiver’s application is still pending before the court as of the time of publishing.
Aslam, better known as “Immy,” is a former resident and a citizen of the UK. He also has the highest net profit in Traffic Monsoon.
According to forensic accounting performed by the Receivership, Aslam used the Ponzi scheme to steal almost $5 million.
Only $10,825 of Aslam’s funds were used to fund Traffic Monsoon. Targeting ethnic and religious groups, both in the UK and overseas, he was able to steal millions.
Ponzi scam Traffic Monsoon made $207 million. The SEC shut it down in 2016, which prompted the court to appoint a Receivership.
Aslam’s close buddy and Traffic Monsoon creator Charles Scoville is incarcerated at the moment.
In 2018, Scoville admitted to attempting to sexually assault a kid. There is also an active criminal tax fraud case.
The world’s MLM crime capital is Dubai. The emirate offers a refuge for con artists due to a lack of extradition treaties and a refusal to cooperate with foreign law enforcement.
The rules of BehindMLM are:
You are being conned if a Dubai resident contacts you about an MLM opportunity.
An MLM business is fraudulent if it claims to be headquartered in Dubai or to have connections there.
