"Ke Liang Radish Chapter defrauded 30 billion" follow-up: JD.com said that Noah Fortune was maliciously sued
IT Home reported on December 4 that JD Group today issued the "Statement on Noah Fortune's malicious prosecution of JD.com and misleading investors and the public".
Recently, the "Chengxing case" has aroused widespread attention from the media and the public. In response, JD.com issued a statement saying that JD.com, as an unwitting victim, was involved in a malicious lawsuit that lasted for four years, and the company's reputation and rights and interests suffered significant losses.
JD.com said that in the process of contract fraud in the Chengxing system, the Chengxing company used fake JD official seals, fake JD employees, fake JD systems and false transaction data to easily deceive Noah Wealth, which is known as a "global comprehensive financial platform", and its Gopher assets, and obtained huge financing from Gopher, which led to a thunderstorm. In the face of fraud that lasted for more than two years, Gopher's asset due diligence work had obvious flaws, huge loopholes in investment and financing management, and senior executive Fang Jianhua accepted huge bribes from Chengxing (sentenced in the first instance), resulting in heavy losses to investors and failing to fulfill their due responsibilities and obligations to investors.
Jingdong also said that according to public information, Noah Fortune has had more than ten similar incidents in recent years, faced problems with the redemption of tens of billions of funds, and concealed information from investors many times, and has been repeatedly warned and punished by regulatory authorities, indicating that it has long-term serious risk control defects. At present, the criminal case related to the "Chengxing case" has been sentenced in the first instance, and Luo Jing, the actual controller of Chengxing, and other fraud suspects have been sentenced. We believe that the court will fairly adjudicate the case by still ignoring the trust of investors, refusing to examine their internal management issues, and maliciously launching an unbelievably high lawsuit against the third party JD.com, in an attempt to confuse the public, continue to mislead investors and the general public, shirk and shift responsibility, and find a "scapegoat" for themselves. It is hoped that Noah Wealth and Gopher Asset Management will face up to their own problems, show sincerity and rectification measures, especially improve the most basic integrity and literacy as a wealth management company, and truly safeguard the rights and interests of the majority of investors.
IT House Synopsis:
On the afternoon of July 5, 2019, Boxin announced that Luo Jing, the actual controller and chairman of the company, and Jiang Shaoyang, director and chief financial officer, were criminally detained by the Yangpu Branch of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau on June 20 and June 25, respectively. On July 8, 2019, Noah Wealth announced that the products issued by Gopher Assets provided supply chain financing for related companies of Chengxing International Holdings, with a total amount of 3.4 billion yuan. The actual controller of Chengxing International Holdings was recently criminally detained by the Chinese police on suspicion of fraudulent activities.
In 2022, the Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court (hereinafter referred to as the "Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court") issued a first-instance judgment, finding that Luo Jing was sentenced to life imprisonment for the crimes of contract fraud and bribery of non-state employees.
According to the criminal verdict of the "Chengxing case" disclosed by investors, between February 2015 and June 2019, Chengxing Holdings and related companies defrauded Xiangcai Securities, Moshan Factoring, Shanghai Gopher, Yunnan Trust, Anhui Zhongxin and other institutions of more than 30 billion yuan of funds through fictitious supply chain trade with Suning and JD.com, and ultimately caused a loss of more than 8 billion yuan.
The judgment also found that JD.com, Suning and other companies and employees were unaware of Chengxing's fraud, and the relevant cooperation contracts, seals, and materials were forged.
According to the verdict, under Luo Jing's instructions and arrangements, a number of employees of the Chengxing Department used forged badges to pretend to be employees of the two companies in the offices of Jingdong Company and Suning Company, interviewed the victim units, handed over materials, and signed contracts in person; Suning Company's materials for the transfer of creditor's rights were courier, and the materials were stamped with false seals and sent back to the victim unit; accounts were opened to impersonate JD.com's accounts to collect money. In addition, Fang Jianhua, a staff member of Noah Capital, accepted a bribe of more than 200 yuan from Chengxing, and facilitated Chengxing's fraud in terms of business docking and return visit due diligence.
In July 2019, Shanghai Gopher claimed compensation of RMB 3.419 billion for JD.com's failure to fulfill its payment obligations as required by the Confirmation Letter for the Transfer of Accounts Receivable, and for the other defendants' failure to assume repurchase obligations or guarantee liabilities as agreed.
After more than four years, on November 24, Gopher Assets and Shanghai Ziyan Car Rental Service Co., Ltd. filed a lawsuit against Chengxing and JD.com, which was heard in the Shanghai Financial Court on the same day.
On November 28, Gopher Assets issued a statement:
Recently, our company has noticed that the content related to the "Chengxing case" (hereinafter referred to as the case) disseminated on the Internet is seriously untrue, which has seriously infringed on our company's reputation rights and misled investors and the public. As one of the victims of the fraud case, Gopher took decisive judicial rights protection actions at the first time of the incident in 2019, doing its best to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of all fund investors and actively promote risk mitigation. The case is in the trial stage, and our company recommends that all relevant parties respect the judiciary and not mislead the public.
