Nevin Shapiro Laundered Drug Money For Turkish Terrorists, Woman Claims In Court

​It seems Nevin Shapiro, the scrawny, debauched Ponzi schemer currently trying to dynamite University of Miami athletics, is even slimier than we thought. A woman now claims that Shapiro, along with his convicted felon stepdad, once helped launder drug profits for the PKK, a notorious Turkish terrorist group. The claims would be incredible -- except most of the facts stated in document provided to New Times and filed yesterday in federal court indeed seem to line up.

Nevin's step-father, a Canadian businessman named Richard Armand Adam, was in fact charged in 1997 with engineering a $6 million fraud. 

The new filing by a co-defendant in that case claims a previously undisclosed part of the scheme involved laundering PKK drug money. After Adam was busted, Nevin and his mother, Ronnie, took over the fraudulent enterprise. 

"The Adam-Shapiro crime family aided the PKK, a recognized terrorist enemy of the United States, through money laundering," charges Barbara Murray, a real estate agent who recruited investors for Adam and is appealing her conviction.

Maria Elena Perez, who is Nevin Shapiro's attorney, also represented Adam in the criminal case. She says Murray's claims are untrue.  

"This is completely crazy on all points," she writes in an email to Riptide. "The issue of Mr. Adam's and Mr. Shapiro and his mother's ties to any terrorist group is a complete fabrication ... Barbara Murray is upset because she opted to go to trial ... and was convicted as a co-conspirator of Mr. Adam while Mr. Adam was fighting extradition in Canada."

Murray's 29-page complaint, filed in Fort Lauderdale's federal courthouse on Tuesday, lays out an international conspiracy that sounds like a spy film. In 1987, Ronnie Schapiro married Adam, an ex-pat Canadian. His firm, RAA International, quickly expanded and the family upgraded from Miami Beach to a Lighthouse Point mansion and a 38-foot yacht.

That life fell apart in 1997, when federal prosecutors charged Adam with running an "advance fee" loan scheme. Adam would collect cash up-front from businesses, promise huge loans at low rates, and then never deliver. 

His financial base for that fraud was Luxembourg, a tiny European banking haven. When another broker got suspicious about the loans that never arrived, Adam flew the man to the country to show him accounts stuffed with tens of millions of dollars.

Murray contends she later ratted Adam out to the feds. Prosecutors, she says, never told her they suspected Nevin Shapiro's step-dad was cleaning cash for killers.

Adam used his stuffed Luxembourg bank accounts to launder drug profits for MED-TV, the propaganda arm of the PKK, Murray writes. The group, also called the Kurdish Workers Party, has killed almost 6,000 civilians in bombings and assaults since the mid-80s in a struggle to establish an independent Kurdish state in Turkey and Iraq.

What's more, Nevin and Ronnie Shapiro knew exactly what he was up to -- and took over his scheme when Adam fled his federal charges to his native Canada, Murray says.

Indeed, court documents confirm Adam had given the son his business and a home when he fled the country, she says. "In short ... the Adams-Shapiro crime family began in 1987 and ... that crime has continued until Nevin Shapiro was indicted," Murray says. 

After Adam pled guilty to U.S. fraud charges in 2003, he was extradited to Luxembourg to face charges of terrorist financing there, according to news reports. It's not clear how that case was resolved, though Perez says he was cleared in court of any ties to the PKK or other terrorists. "Mr. Adam was not convicted of anything in Luxembourg," she says.

Murray, whom Riptide contacted at her home in Connecticut, declined to comment on her court claims.

Here's a copy of the legal filing:

Sods ----- Law.

Dec.---- 2014.

For almost two decades we have strived to get justice for the injustice we have suffered at the hands of a world renowned bank--- PICTET & CIE. BANK.

Two yorkshiremen both running their own small family businesses trying to resolve the problem by taking all the correct legal procedures to recover their monies.

The matter was raised in Parliament – twice-- the FSA investigated the matter concluding that PICTET had rogues operating in their London Bank --- but the rogues had left ---saying no one left to prosecute.??? ----- so there.

We then approached the Financial Ombudsman Service. (FOS) --- our case was dealt with by seven different people ---- then our numerous E-Mails were ignored --- nobody would speak to us -------so there.

We then asked the SFO ( Serious Fraud Office.) to investigate our case ---- the criteria of our case ticked all their boxes. --- we were instructed not to send them

any documents/evidence.------ in fact they wrote to us advising us to go to the Citizen's Advice Bureau.(CAB.)

Richard Alderman the SFO boss ---- who responded to our letter was the same man who would not investigate the “ Madoff” scandal or the “Libor” fiasco.

The MP's committee ---- said he was sloppy--- and the SFO was run like “ Fred Karno's Circus” ----- it was an office of fraud.----- so there.

Our M.P. approached our local Chief Constable to investigate----- he was called---- Sir Norman Bettison--- Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police ---- a force that made “ Dad's Army” look like the S.A.S. They were inept – corrupt ---malicious --- from top to bottom. We were criminally dealt with by the Forces Solicitor---- the Head of the Economic Crime Unit ----and the Chief Constable ----- so there.

We were then advised to pass our complaint against West Yorkshire Police to the I.P.C.C. – which we did --- they advised us to make our complaint to ---- the West Yorkshire Police --- we did with reluctance --- all we got was abuse and obfuscation. ----- so there.

Sir Norman Bettison ---- The Forces solicitor--- and the Head of the Economic Crime ---- have all been removed from their posts and facing criminal allegations.

------ so there.

We even sought justice through the Courts --- culminating in a visit to the Court of Appeal-London.--- On leaving the Courts of Appeal that day our barrister a “rising star” informed us --- that if that was British Justice then you can keep it. He quit the law and moved to Canada ----- so there.

A few years later we learned that one of the judges ( Lord Justice.) in our case at the Court of Appeal was related to a senior executive of the Pictet Bank -----so there.

The Ministry of Justice passed our case to Lord Myners to investigate --- we would rather have had Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck do it. --- to this day we don't know

---whether he did anything or not ---- probably not --- seeing that his wife was on the Pictet Prix Board.

Pictet & Cie .Bank --- voted private bank of the year 2013.

Ivan Pictet ---- Voted banker of the year 2012. ---- the senior partner --- lied on numerous occasions and had documents destroyed --- also said genuine documents were forgeries. ----- so there.

Ivan Pictet in Oct. 2013 ---- Given the Legion of Honour --- but saying that ---- honours were given to Hitler --- Eichmann --- Mussolini ---Franco --- he's in fitting company. ----so there.

MONTY RAPHAEL.Q.C. -- Peters & Peters.London. They were the banks lawyers.

Monty Raphael.Q.C. along with Ivan Pictet withheld crucial documents requested by the High Court ---- the FSA ---- and the police Fraud Squad. ----so there.

Monty Raphael.Q.C. became an Honorary Queens Counsellor in March. 2012.

Monty Raphael.Q.C. became a Master of the Bench in Nov.2012.

An expert in Fraud ---the Doyen of Fraud Lawyers. ----- so there.

This says a lot about Banks --- the consensus of opinion is that they are highly paid “crooks” ---- no wonder they voted Ivan Pictet banker of the year.

It appears that crimes in the “establishment.” are honoured by their peers.

Ivan Pictet/ Monty Raphael Q.C.


Swiss Bank Accounts. Dec..2014.

Is your monies safe in these accounts ---- definitely NOT.

Would you get your money back if every body decided to withdraw all their accounts – NO WAY.

Economic Experts say that there would only enough money to repay 50% of their clients.

Are you going to be in the 50% --- that loose your money.-- Get it out NOW.

2012 -- - June. -- Published in Anglo INFO .Geneva.--- USA Trust Fund Investors were sent false and fraudulent documents by Pictet Bank.Switzerland. in order to collect large fees. ( Like MADOFF) ---Even after the SEC in the USA uncovered the fraud Pictet continued to charge fees and drain whatever was left in these accounts. Estimated that $90,000,000 million lost in this Pictet Ponzi scheme.

2012 - - - July. -- De – Spiegel. -- states – Pictet Bank uses a letterbox company in

Panama and a tax loophole involving investments in London to gain

German millionaires as clients.

2012 - - - August ---- German Opposition Leader accuses Swiss Banks of "organised crime."

All the fines that crooked Swiss banks have incurred in the last few years exceeds £75.Billion.

It is also calculated that the secrecy " agreements" with regards to tax evation by their clients will cost the banks another £450 Billion.( paid out of your monies.)

The banks are panicking --- the are quickly restructuring their banks ---- from partnerships --

to " LIMITED COMPANIES." ----- this will probably mean that in the future --- they could

pay you only 10% of your monies " if you are one of the lucky ones" ---- and it be legal.

Google ---- The Crimes of ---- Pictet & Cie Bank.


PKK isn't a turkish terrorist group. They threatened Turkey's territorial integrity.They are kurdish people.


Maria Elena Perez must be wetting her pants right now.  She really doesn't want people going down this alley!  Life was so much better when she could blame the entire Ponzi scheme on some black NFL football players.  Poor Maria.
