I write to lay a formal complaint of fraud and deception against a company I know as “EUROPE TRUCK & PLANT BV” and Adem Sjedic. The details I have of this company are as follows:

Company name: Europe Truck & Plant BV
Company number: K.v.K. 576875440
Company Address: Zwartsluisstraat 34, 2541CW Den Haag, Holland.
Email: sales@europe-truck-plant.nl
Phone: 0031 (0) 702 170 113
Website: www.europe-truck-plant.nl

I first contacted the company, having seen their website and commercial vehicles they advertised for sale on 22 May 2013. I contacted the company by email and got a call back from a gentleman calling himself Adem Sjedic (“Sjedic”). Copies of our email interactions are attached in Appendix 4 to this letter.

I initially requested a third party reference from Sjedic but he suggested he was unable to provide the same due to “confidentiality” but offered to meet me in London, where he was to go and purchase new trucks. Given I needed the trucks urgently, I requested a formal invoice and for the payment to be made to an established bank in the name of the company. I was given the name of TRIDOS BANK and proceeded to make a payment of €30,000 (THIRTY THOUSAND EURO) into this account, on the premise that I would then have the 3 tipper trucks (two FODEN Models & 1 SCANIA Model 32 ton tipper trucks, collectively the “Trucks”), I ordered shipped to Walvis Bay within days. Copies of the invoice, proof of payment from Lloyds TSB Bank plc and the website photos of the vehicles are attached as Appendix 1 to this letter.

Since payment was made on 24 May 2013, I have had a series of excuses from SJEDIC as to why the Trucks have not been shipped including claiming the death of his father. Since payment was made SJEDIC is not longer available by telephone, is always in meetings and the office line is answered by a woman with an Indian sounding accent who calls herself Linda. She appear complicit to the scam.


The bank account to which the payment of €30,000 (THIRTY THOUSAND EURO) was made is as follows:

Bank: TRIDOS BANK NV
Account name: Europe Truck & Plant BV
Account number: 197611737
IBAN: NL70 TRIO 0197611737
SWIFT/ BIC: TRIONL2U

The 3 Tipper Trucks paid for and their UK registration details are as follows (Photos of the vehicles as advertised on ETP’s website are attached as Appendix 2 to this Letter.

• FODEN ALPHA TIPPER TRUCK 2006 – UK REG: NX06 DBZ
• FODEN ALPHA TIPPER TRUCK 2004 – UK REG: CM04 ERJ (Marked with Bardon Asphalt details)
• SCANIA TIPPER TRUCK 2003 – UK REG: EU53 CBM

The TRIDOS BANK may be the best placed entity (given their regulatory obligation to have the full identity and physical address of their customers) that will be able to give the details of the company and the persons behind it as I doubt the identities given of SJEDIC and Linda. TRIDOS Bank is copied in on this email for them to possibly freeze the bank account pending further investigation and protect themselves from complicity to crime and potential negative press once this story breaks as it is sure to.

SJEDIC, despite repeated requests has been unable to forward even a single 3rd party document to collaborate the shipping of the Trucks or indeed that he had them. His failure to do so has therefore highlighted that the website is probably a site set up to defraud persons such as myself and that SJEDIC and Linda are engaged in criminal activity.

I will travel to the Netherlands (as this is the country where payment was made & the country to which ETP claim to be resident) this week to engage with various law enforcement agencies, to visit the bank where payment was made, and to formally lay criminal charges against SJEDIC and Linda.

I have also noted the names of various companies on vehicles advertised on the ETP Website, including on those I have paid for. I have copied all the companies in on this letter and will have my office contact each of them direct/ request (by copy of this letter) that they indeed contact me to advise whether their vehicle advertised was indeed sold to ETP or an intermediary so that we can start the process of identifying who exactly ETP, SJEDIC and Linda are. If indeed the vehicles were not sold to ETP and the company indeed suspects its own elements of fraud then they may also wish to report the crime to the serious fraud office or another UK law enforcement agency. SJEDIC seems to suggest he travels to the UK regularly. This letter is indeed also address to the UK Serious Fraud Office/ UK Action Fraud just in case SJEDIC and Linda are infact UK based fraudsters.

I have also been duped by Adem Sejdic and Linda. I paid an amount of over Euro 28,000 for the supply of one Iveco Trakker 2006 model. These pair of Adem Sejdic and Linda are the most dangerous couple I have ever met in my over 50 yrs of life on this earth. Initially they gave various reason why even though I paid for the truck through Triodos Bank to the company account they could not supply the truck. I have receipts of monies transferred to their collaborative bank, the Triodos Bank. first they told me my truck could not be loaded onto the vessel, later they indicated that they are unable to ship the trucks and asked that I submit i submit my bank account details to enable them refund all monies I have paid them. I obliged but that was then of the communication I had with them.
I have tried to get in touch with them but to no avail. I have in the last month been talking to a private security person to assist me retrive my money by contacting the collaborative bank in this scandal, the Triodos Bank. From what I am hearing it is almost impossible to even talk to the bank about this issue. I would be grateful if anybody can assist me retrive my money from these criminals
