Who is Behind Fintelegram and What is Their Real Agenda?

Who Is Behind FinTelegram and What Is Their Real Agenda?

In a number of online exposés, it has been revealed that although FinTelegram claims to “take pride in the notion that they actively combat cybercrime and are focused on investor protection”, the reality is that they have neither direction nor the moral compass to be the “crowdsourced financial intelligence” that they purport to be.


Owners of the site are notorious financial criminals, led by Ilan Tzorya and Werner Boehm, who exploit it for their own purposes. Following an in-depth investigation into this criminal enterprise, here are a few of the many findings to avoid future calamities and repercussions:

The Unexplained Approach in Practice

The method used by the owners of FinTelegram is simpler than one might assume. FinTelegram turns on former colleagues who have worked with the owners of Telegram and accused them of criminal activity or refused to cooperate with their criminal ways.

The site is used to systematically lay out false allegations against these colleagues and highlight their involvement in said criminal activities. Meanwhile, the acts are largely under the instruction of or in cooperation with, one or more of the owners of the site until slowly but surely, they discredit any evidence submitted to law enforcement – thus hampering justice.

To elaborate, FinTelegram smears their names unjustly. They manipulate their former partners into concealing criminal activities they were either involved in or privy to through their joint work whilst discrediting any evidence they might provide to the authorities.

The following are two of the most blatant controversies in FinTelegram’s scandalous history to demonstrate just how systemic and vicious its owners are:

Case #1: The Haim Toledano-associated Occurrence

Among the key figures of MICT and ParagonEX is Haim Toledano, who has a long history with FinTelegram’s owner, Ilan Tzorya. As time went by, the relationship soured. Toledano learned that Tzorya had illegally transferred his shares to one of Israel’s most notorious criminals, with no notice to the board of directors.

Stumped, he tried confronting Tzorya about the issue but was met with threats from the former partner. As Toledano discovered that Tzorya had sold him shares in a company in which he has no stake while claiming to be the sole owner of the company under fictitious claims, Tzorya filed a lawsuit against him, demanding a complete refund.

Shortly after the threats were made, FinTelegram started publishing reports about Toledano and his companies. No less than eight articles smeared Toledano and his companies, yet none of the articles mentioned Tzorya or his connections to Toledano.

Case #2: The Uwe Lenhoff-associated Occurrence

Uwe Lenhoff is an experienced tech executive with a rich background in the gaming industry as well as in various fintech companies. Lenhoff previously worked closely with Werner Boehm, one of FinTelegram’s owners.

Gradually, Boehm’s troubled life led to a trial at which he and his partner, Elfriede Sixt, were ultimately convicted for misleading his board and investors, holding fraudulent negotiations and copying the site to run it independently for personal gain. After being convicted, Lenhoff decided to sever ties with Boehm, believing he had been betrayed.

Lenhoff’s rational decision was not well-received by Boehm, who had cast him as an adversary. It appeared that he harboured hostility towards Lenhoff since FinTelegram published 106 articles referring to Lenhoff, accusing him of absurd crimes and immoral ties, going to great lengths to denounce him.

To Conclude

It must be emphasized that FinTelegram is anything but the crowdsourced financial intelligence it claims to be. The site is being used by its criminal owners to promote their personal agendas, stopping at nothing to threaten, coerce, or defame their former partners, now victims. From discrediting evidence to win favour on their part, FinTelegram is now nothing more than a covert extortion tactic and obstruction of justice.
