PRESS RELEASE

March 24, 2017  TORONTO  ONTARIO: 

Peter Spyros Goudas thanks all the people that have stood by him and assisted him through the recent events in his life. 

Mr. Goudas spent his entire life to provide the best quality foods for Canadian families, was foremost in introducing a line of ethnic products into Canadian grocery chains and independent stores reflecting the multicultural nature of Canada.

Additionally, he has been a very charity-oriented individual providing food assistance to senior citizen homes, churches, the homeless, charitable organizations, food banks, destitute people and nations across the globe.

Peter believed he was making his products available to a wider public in Canada, the USA and the Caribbean by taking the company to the next level by increasing sales to one billion dollars corporation when he was persuaded into selling his business to a public enterprise operated by A.C. Simmonds Group. 
Little did he know that the purchasers were unscrupulous con-artists.

At the end of March of 2014, Mr Goudas sold one of his companies (Goudas Food Products and Investments Ltd. ) to BLVD Holdings Inc. a public company recently incorporated in Nevada and operated by John Simmonds on behalf of A.C. Simmonds & Sons Inc.
Peter was told that A.C. Simmonds & Sons Inc. was a well established company operating in Canada for over 100 years manufacturing products from fluorescent light tubes to mattresses.
Unbeknownst to Mr. Goudas, he had just become a victim of a scam.

It took John Graham Simmonds and his team just four and a half months to drive (Goudas Food Products and Investments Limited) into the ground, forcing the company into bankruptcy.

In the process, John Graham Simmonds and his gang have ruined the good name of  Mr. Goudas and related Goudas trademarks and created havoc in the food market.    

Thankfully, most of the individuals involved in this scam have been arrested by the police for various offences including fraud, forging documents, conspiracy to commit fraud, false prospectus, and they soon will face a criminal trial.

At the age of 75, Peter has lost one of his businesses that he has worked his entire life for and he is now fighting to recover his reputation.

He has launched a civil action against numerous parties who have caused this disaster including the Royal Bank of Canada, the receiver manager (Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Limited aka KSV Kofman Inc.),  John Graham Simmonds and numerous other parties.

Anyone who has attempted to gain compensation from a Bank or large international corporation through the courts will know that Peter Spyros Goudas is in for a difficult and expensive fight. 

Peter values your moral support and is prepared to maintain this fight in the public eye so that others do not suffer a similar fate.

POLICE LAY CHARGES IN $30 MILLION FRAUD INVESTIGATION Dec 2016

 

 

CHARGES LAID IN $30 MILLION FRAUD INVESTIGATION

Posted on Tuesday December 20, 2016

Investigators with the York Regional Police Major Fraud Unit have arrested nine people and laid 42 charges in connection to a criminal organization responsible for defrauding, businesses, banks and private investors of more than $30 million dollars.

In November 2014, York Regional Police commenced an investigation into the accused John SIMMONDS and his company AC Simmonds Group.

Police and the Ontario Securities Commission received several complaints from victims alleging they had been defrauded by Simmonds and his co-accused.
In early 2014, the company BLVD Holdings, one of the 80 shell companies registered by Simmonds Group began the process of acquiring a food shipping company in York Region.

AC Simmonds was to purchase the company for $10 million from the original owner who had started the company and operated it for the past 45 years.

Once Simmonds took control of the business, he replaced the current system for maintaining the financial records to misrepresent the financial status of the company.

Simmonds and his co-accused, systematically submitted fraudulent documentation from one of his many shell companies and business interests to increase the value of the company in order to secure additional money from lenders, creditors and investors.

Between April and August 2014, in the 5 months that Simmonds had taken control of the food company, he funnelled large sums of money out of the existing business to himself, the co-accused and his shell companies to the point of bankrupting the food company.

The total fraud value at this time is believed to be over $30 million.

Anyone with information or anyone who has had business agreements with BLVD Holdings or  AC Simmonds Group are asked to contact Detective Ken Bardai with the York Regional Police Major Fraud Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6671, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, leave an anonymous tip online at www.1800222tips.com, or text your tip to CRIMES (274637) starting with the word YORK.
