Seems like the authorities have finally decided to tackle the issue...According to Swiss newspaper Le Temps, the companies have been shut down by SEC.

Some of these folks could help the local economy and use a flower shop in the good ole USA!!

Transactions with United Trust of Switzerland
As described above, on October 25, 2006, FXLQ wire transferred $1,000,000 to United Trust of Switzerland (UTS). UTS has an account at Commerzbank in Frankfurt, Germany. Subsequently, UTS wire transferred $500,000 to TMA on November 10, 2006. FXLQ recorded the $1,000,000 payment to UTS as "Funds at Prime Brokerage, Commerez."

The entities associated with Arno Arndt in Switzerland reveal a corporate structure only a puzzlemaker could love or figure out. For your amusement, here are some of the companies - their members and auditors:

United Trust of Switzerland
M Werner Stoffel
A Swiss Management Trust

Swiss Management Trust
M Stoffel
A Swiss Guaranty Trust

Swiss Guaranty Trust
M Max Noser
A M&S Finance & Trust

M&S Finance & Trust
M Joann Charbonnier
A OIC Octomar

OIC Octomar
M Stoffel, Erich Schworer
A First Swiss Int'l Trust

First Swiss Int'l Trust
M Max Noser
A First Securities & Trust

Swiss Royal Trust (who I think may be the successor of First Securities and Trust)
M Stoffel
A M&S Finance

United Securities of Switzerland (Arndt's former employer according to Millennium website)
M Stoffel
A M&S Finance

United Securities 1980 (Yes Hunter a different company)
M Fritz Kern
A Ibusco

M Erich Schwander
A PGA & Partner

PGA & Partner
M Pius Glanzmann
A Ibusco

KS Management (c/o in the address for United Securities 1980)

The cycling cast of players, as well as the conflicts apparent in accountant/audit relationships, are nothing short of amazing.

M&S Finance has an interesting history. Possibly connected to Lugano Synergy and that nice flower shop in Switzerland to name a few.

As you (Tripledeuce) have shown interest in Arndt in other threades, here is an old post from the KYC Alert Message Board:

Re: Extradition
By jc - running slow - Arndt connection on 9/1/2003 7:44:49 PM

I feeling a little slow today. David Marchant had already made many of the connections I made in this thread in an April 30, 2003 story in the Story Library. (Search for Betts, Varra or British Trade)

Interestingly, at least for a period of time, there was some connection between BTCB and the Noser/Arndt entities, Lugano Synergy and M&S Finance.

From a Google archive version of the Lugano Synergy Investment Group website:

"Real-time FOREX market trading system allows LSIG Ltd.'s clients to trade major currencies over the Internet or direct-dial up connection from the convenience of their home or office. This program is provided in cooperation British Trade & Commerce Bank of Dominica and with M & S Finance Trust, SA of Switzerland."

Also associated with Lugano Synergy – Dr. Arno E. Arndt of United Trust, S.A.

So, postings on message boards have caused concern for Millennium Bank and United Trust. To allay those concerns Arndt, Schwörer, and Stoffel will resign. I am curious as to who will Central Casting in Zurich send in to take their place? Here are some possibilities - people that have been involved in companies related to Arndt Stoffel and Schwörer:

Max Noser (First Swiss Int'l Trust and others)
Joanna Charbonnier (M&S Finance & Trust)
Fritz Kern (United Securities 1980 and KS Management )
Frey Christian (Swiss Corporate Trust SA)
Alfred F. Stöckli (Swiss Commerce Trust SA)
Gilles Corset (First Capital Securities SA, en liquidation)
Erik H. Söderström (OIC Octomar) (Swedish resident)
Per-Arne H. Hemmesthorp(OIC Octomar) (Swedish resident)

On August 19, 2003, Werner Stoffel was replaced as manager of United Trust by ...

Michael Engeler , de Ellikon an der Thur, à Langnau am Albis

Werner Stoffel shouldn't feel too bad, after all, he is still the manager of United Trust AG's auditor, Swiss Management Trust, AG. Swiss Management Trust AG's auditor is Swiss Guaranty Trust AG

Swiss Guaranty Trust, AG has Max E. Noser as its manager and OIC Octomar AG as its auditor.

The circle goes on ...

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
