Complaint / review text:
Richard Lechartier: under his name at first glance rather charming, one might think that he is a good business leader, a man with his head on his shoulders, whereas it is rather the exact opposite, namely the typical shameless conman ...
Working in the field of film distribution, Lechartier chained the scams of companies specializing in this field by diverting funds for his personal purposes, breaking agreements or by signing false contracts ...
Where to begin to tell all his abuses?
First with Aventi, a company owned by Eton Investment, English company Lechartier, DVD film company or video distribution and publishing company to speak in more technical terms, in which he is major shareholder and general manager. He planted Aventi in 2014 with more than 18 million liabilities including various banks such as Societe Generale, Natexis Coficine, Bank OBC, BNP Paribas, ABN AMRO, Banque Palatine ... as well as companies Emylia, SND Group M6, Ad Vitam, E1 Entertainment, Antartic Video, Filmedia and Marco Polo Production, all well-known film distribution companies in France whose film rights are unpaid, films released and recipes eaten by Richard Lechartier.
To defraud banks its principle is simple. It produces and places much more dvd on the market that the market can absorb and mobilizes the bills from the banks that advance funds but see a few months later bills amputated many unsold and returns and therefore not paid by the large distribution.
Lechartier abandons Aventi with 18M of liabilities and slates and shares with the money of the company. He buys an apartment in Orlando, Florida, and goes to Ibiza in summer to feast while the victims in France of his frauds are multiple. He transfers the title of his Mougins property to his wife and daughters to avoid the seizure by the Société Générale and seeks new prey.
The company Marco Polo which was one of the companies on the liabilities of Aventi engages it for 4 years as general manager and minority shareholder to 12% through its new English company Trocadero. In June 2018 it is surprised by the shareholders for diverting the company's revenue for more than 650 000 €, released films in France without having paid the rights to rights holders, sold films without having the rights, and for to achieve his ends the guy had to trick and especially sign loan agreements with the corporate lawyer of the company without having the right or the mandate by the statutes and all that discreetly out of sight, while he does not even have the legal rights in the company to sign loan agreements.
Of course, it hides these contracts to shareholders by anti-dating back 1 year to try to cover these fraudulent acts, by flashing them to the shareholders and resigning 1 days later. The company is emptied of its cashflow and must put itself in protection. Once surprised, he goes on vacation to Ibiza and of course creates a new English company.
All he did in these companies Aventi and Marco Polo Production was actually just a way to get money easily and divert it for personal use.
This dark character hides his assets such as his house he owns in Mougins but is in fact declared property of his wife and girls so that the banks to which he owes money can not seize it, as the Company General to whom he had made a loan for Aventi saying and to whom he had given his personal guarantee.
Having scammed Aventi and Marco Polo Production as well as the various banks with his fraudulent loans, he associates himself with the lawyer Olivier Uettwiller, lawyer of Aventi and later of Marco Polo to found a new company in London "ILY films" acronym from "I love you" together while also working with a former salesman of Aventi and Marco Polo Christophe Verneau who also has his own film company: Crome Films, also based in London and which is a cover for Lechartier. The two are in tandem since the time of Aventi where Verneau covered DVD sales to supermarkets and brought bills to Lechartier. We know why.
So they scammed Aventi and Marco Polo to open their own unfunded company in London. Pretending to be resident abroad while they are in France and defraud French tax.
Verneau goes unemployed but also receives monthly payments for his work in different companies for years. He also cheats the allowances.
For Richard Lechartier in addition to being a scammer, he is also a traitor and a coward who does not declare rentals of his apartment in Orlando and who above all cheats on his wife with prostitutes including in Berlin where he goes to Tapin bar during the film festival while his wife is waiting for him in London with his 2 daughters.
Richard Lechartier is also wanted by the police in France for his fraud to banks and the United States for fraud.
If you cross the road of this odious character, go your way!
