Fibonatix, founded by the Israeli Tal Miller, is an Israeli high-risk payment processor and used to be a notorious scam facilitator. It was one of the payment processors of Gal Barak‘s cybercrime organization E&G Bulgaria. In his trial, Barak confirmed that in addition to Payvision, Fibonatix was laundering the stolen funds. Since 2018, Fibonatix has been an FCA-regulated payment institution and opened offices in Berlin last year to focus on the DACH region! Here is another update!

Scam Facilitator Legacy
Fibonatix has been facilitating huge binary options scams such as Tradorax or BinaryBook. According to U.S. prosecutors’ findings, Fibonatix laundered at least $22 million for the binary options scam BinaryBook in 2015 and 2016 (see statement right). The operator of BinaryBook was Israel-based Yukom Communications Ltd, whose CEO Lee Elbaz was sentenced to 22 years in prison by a U.S. court in 2019 for operating BinaryBook and other scams for fraud of at least $140M.
Gal Barak was sentenced to four years in prison for investment fraud and money laundering in Vienna in September 2020. Several court cases against Barak’s accomplices are currently underway in Germany. Most recently, his former lieutenant Tal-Jacki Fitelzon pleaded guilty and will receive a prison sentence between 6.5 to 7 years. Kfir Levy was arrested in October 2021 and will stand trial soon. German prosecutors also want to charge Gal Barak and his wife Marina Barak with investment fraud and money laundering. In this respect, it could also become exciting again for Fibonatix in Germany.
