“Fairly early in my career, I went to an official building to be presented with life insurance, indicates the one who is currently playing at the Hyères club.

They explained to me that all the money I was going to earn would go into this life insurance and that it would grow for my post-career, but that for 8-9 years, I couldn't get that money.

(…) Every December 31, I received receipts for what I had won, they were fake.

The person happened to be in cahoots with the officers.

Because in addition to being the victim of fraud, I was the victim of an organized gang.

It's as if I was in the middle of a table with 17 people and that I was the sheep to bleed.

I discovered that there were accommodation certificates saying that I was staying with my agents.

Consumer loans have been taken out, credits have been taken out by my agents on my behalf.

“I am on trial with all the banks”

In the video, the player who also played in the Russian championship shows a power of attorney that he would have had signed by his ex-agent and a Russian counterpart.

"As the writing was in Russian, I didn't understand," he laments.

I was told it was for an account opening.

And in a single day, he took 500,000 euros.

He sent 250,000 euros to one of his accounts and he withdrew 250,000 euros in cash.

I think he gave them to his Russian friends.

It was my signing bonus.
