The narrative

In 2020 and 2021, GNI had massive problems with money laundering and the systematic facilitation of broker scams and illegal gambling. Insiders have provided FinTelegram with information confirming these compliance issues. The compliance team at the time had left GNI; the Lithuanian law enforcement agencies investigated the situation. In June 2021, the Bank of Lithuania imposed a fine on GNI and a temporary restriction on its activities.

The company’s Lithuanian CEO, Liudvikas Kulikauskas, is also a GNI shareholder. He and his wife Egle Kulikauskiene used to run the payment processor Ifind MB d/b/a Findiban (www.findiban.com), which was positioned as a high-risk payment processor, offering businesses a range of financial services, including SEPA IBAN account, white-label FinTech services, or credit card processing. Upon FinTelegram reports, Findiban vanished.
