FIFA, Warner’s Sons ‘Talk dI Tings’ – Update – Part 111

Do not become overly impressed with anyone and dependent on their opinions of ‘you’; a philosophy I live and stand by.

I have shared and in most recent times more frequent. You will become disappointed, alarmed and even hurt by those we relate to but never allow those reactions to ‘pierce’ you. Easier said than done you say, but unless you learn to develop those tools which will enable you to withstand, then continue to live and base your life through mere mortals. Your best chance in this life is to live with integrity, be in truth of your own self, then who you really are will be revealed each and every day of your existence without the ‘surprises’. The more you focus on the lives of others and their apparent ‘successes’ or lack thereof is the gateway to your own fears for ‘self-awareness’, refusing to face your own insecurities leaving you powerless.

Jack Warner’s sons flagged in US$ transactions

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – When the Warner brothers- Daryll and Daryan-attempted to dump huge amounts of cash into several US banks in mid-July 2011, it triggered several alerts while US authorities were probing a massive FIFA bribery scandal.

In the unsealed indictments, both brothers are accused of:
“(a) breaking down sums of currency exceeding $10,000 into smaller sums, including sums at or below $10,000, and depositing the smaller sums of currency into accounts with one or more domestic financial institutions.
(b) conducting a series of currency transactions, including transactions at or below $10,000, at one or more domestic financial institutions, all as part of a pattern of illegal activity involving more than $100,000 in a 12-month period.”

They attempted to deposit US$600,000 in cash at bank branches in New York, Miami (Flo¬¬rida) and Las Vegas (Nevada), the indictment reveals.

In a two-day period, the pair sank some US$128,313.38 in 23 separate deposits at JP Morgan Chase, Well Fargo Citibank and Wells Bank of America through the use of tellers and automated teller machines (ATM).

The complaints against the Warners show they made sure none of the deposits exceeded the $10,000 threshold, above which banks have to file a report to US authorities.

On July 14, 2011, Daryan is said to have deposited 7,500 euros but was told he would have to fill out a transaction report since the amount was more than US$10,000 at the time, triggering anti-money laundering requirements.

The affidavit stated Daryan asked for 500 euros to be given back, which effectively lowered the sum to just under US$10,000.

Earlier that day, a similar amount had been deposited at JP Morgan in Queens, New York.

The following day, another 7,000 euros was deposited at a Broadway branch of JP Morgan.

Those red flags, which the affidavit states were later described by the Chase teller to an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) criminal agent, eventually led Daryan and Daryll Warner to co-operate with the investigation.

When CCN (TV6 and the Express) spoke exclusively with Daryan in March 2013 outside his Miami condominium, at Brickell Avenue in South Beach, Florida, and posed the question whether he had spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as we had been reliably informed then, he had refused to answer.

In 2013, the two brothers secretly pleaded guilty, with Daryan admitting to illegally reselling tickets to the 2006 and 2010 World Cup for substantial mark-ups, with his father’s then close friend Chuck Blazer, former general secretary of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF). While Daryll admit¬ted to a mortgage-fraud scheme, in which he lied about his income and employment to get a US$690,000 loan for a Miami condominium.
