Hello! My name is Alexander Ryabinkin, I am 23 y.o.
Me and my family have a terrible situation. Everything was started about 3 years ago when two persons were appropriated my money and property by using deceit and blackmail. Total amount of money was $52000. It was 80% of all my family money accumulated for a long years.
It is difficult to explain to you why this situation happened, because to understand it you may live just a few years in Russia or show my story to any your russian friends, I think they can explain it to you how could it be, but for now I have such situation.
In 2013, I was offered a joint business. It was a paintball club in the heart of Moscow. It was very profitable at that time, would be one of the most central outdoor paintball club in the Russian capital. They told me that I need to invest not so much money in the same parts like them (3 persons with 33,3% from each person). At first time everything has been looking nice, but then they started to ask me more and more money while showing me fake documents of financial spending in our business, but I understood it too late.
A little bit later I understood that I have been only spending money, while they show me a “big show of big business’’.
At the same time they have been started to understand that their show is not forever.
One of them looked and remembered my password on smartphone, took it when it was on the table and deleted all evidence and information about our business including sсans of documents. He did it after I asked him to bring me all sales receipts.
The original documents with all information about my investment documents were stolen and destroyed. They stole them on the day when they appointed a financial revise of documents.
Later they started to wait me near my house and required more money by using threats. They started to kick the door of my house strongly and tried to break the door handle, scared my grandparents, called to my mother’s phone at night. At once my grandparents called a police, but those guys ran away before the police came and police said “no guys – no claim”.
Such evidences, which I have now (which was not stolen by them), in most cases is not suitable for Russian courts and police. It’s often when the Russian courts and police just need to close the judicial case as fast as they can, without looking through a lot of details.
(It was two times in my life when I asked help from a police and had problems:
-once when I was robbed on the street and get to police department where five policemen tried to urge me that it was just seemed to me, and it’s not their problem.
-second time was when I asked two policemen in metro to look through their cameras when I lost my keys on their station, for that wish they told me “get away, that is not our problem”, I asked “why you can’t help me?”, and after that question they arrested me for “a lot of questions”.
After that moments I never ask Russian police about help, because afraid of them. )
So, I return to my main story. I spent a lot of time by trying to forget that story and start a new life. But a recently in this October 2017 one of guys which I and my family have had problems with, from 2013 till 2016 came back. He filed a lawsuit against me demanding to collect from me a debt for money that I did not take. But he has a document confirming this debt, I signed this paper under the threat when he was aggressive, I was afraid of my life because he had a gun. He wants $ 10000.
When I came to a courthouse for the first time at November 6 2017 and told to associate of trial that this guy who want my money gave me nothing and it was just deception and threat to my life, this associate just smiled at me and told “He has a document, so he is right, we are not interested in another details”.
It is often situation in Russian courthouses, and now this guy hired a lawyer, I don’t have that money and I don’t have a lawyer (there are not free lawyers in my country and I need to protect my rights by myself for now), and also I don’t believe in a true judicial investigation by my question.
So I am not jurist and I can’t protect my rights correctly for now, I afraid of that court will adjudicate me to pay this guy all $ 10000. I don’t have such money because most part of my family money was stolen by fraud by the same people who wrote a statement of claim against me.
Court hearing date is November 29, 2017.
Court hearing was changed for December 18, 2017 because I got cold.
Help me to raise this amount and finally start a new life without fear and get the official documents from the court about the absence of any claims to me.
More to live in such fear is impossible!
Thanks to everyone who is ready to help me solve my problem
