On Tuesday, Success Factory’s headquarters in the Netherlands were searched.
The Dutch FIOD, which investigates financial crimes, undertook the operation on behalf of Estonian authorities.
Success Factory was the Dutch arm of the multimillion-dollar DagCoin Ponzi scam.
Success Factory was responsible for the recruitment of new victims into DagCoin. It was run by Dutch citizen Igor Alberts, aided by his wife Andreea Cimbala, and received a regular flow of public relations from Ted Nuyten and BusinessForHome.
In early October, the Dutch Success Factory raid coincided with the arrest of DagCoin creator Nils Grossberg. Genius revealed last week the news of Grossberg’s detention.
Igor Alberts and Andreea Cimbala escaped the Netherlands weeks before Estonian officials sought to capture Grossberg.
Similar to how Bulgarian officials have protected the remnants of OneCoin, Dutch authorities have protected Alberts and Success Factory for the past five years.
BehindMLM suspects Alberts was informed of the DagCoin arrests and impending raid, which prompted him to escape and run.
Quote reported on October 23 that Andreea Cimbala now claims to be Igor Albert’s ex-wife.
Quotient has documented evidence that Cimbala lied regarding Alberts’ ownership of Success Factory;
His ex-partner Andreea Cimbala notifies the FD that she and Alberts were never co-owners of Success Factory.
Because Alberts and Cimbala were pictured together a week ago, I do not believe their breakup story.
FIOD would not confirm if Igor Alberts and Andreea Cimbala are sought fugitives at this time.
Having defrauded people out of over one hundred million dollars through OneCoin, DagCoin, and Success Factory, however, the likelihood of this happening is growing.
Alberts, Cimbala, and other prominent Success Factory and DagCoin con artists have departed the Netherlands for Dubai, the MLM criminal capital.
In late September, Andrea Cimbala removed her social media accounts. Igor Alberts followed suit days before the Estonian arrests.
Alberts and Cimbala are presumed to be fugitives sheltering in Dubai, although their present whereabouts are unclear.
Quote reached out to Alberts for comment but received no response.
