News of #Encrochat: Road haulage operators convicted of involvement in £100m money laundering


Six defendants including a senior manager and two drivers of a road haulage business have been found guilty on Friday 18 November 2022 of running a large-scale money laundering operation involving in excess of £100 million in cash.

Marcus Justin Hughes (DOB: 08/09/1970) the effective operator of Genesis 2014 (Ltd) UK, a road haulage business, was convicted today at Stoke Crown Court of one count of conspiracy to launder cash together along with Leon Woolley (DOB 3/12/1978) a transport planner at the firm. 

Nicholas Fern (DOB: 10/04/1971) and Damion Morgan (DOB: 20/08/1997), drivers working for Hughes, were convicted of a single count of conspiracy to launder cash over a period of months. 

Liam Bailey (DOB: 29/11/1999), a further transport planner at the firm and Simon Davies (DOB: 09/11/1970) a business associate of Hughes, were each convicted of one count of conspiracy to launder money. 

The Regional Organised Crime Unit for the West Midlands became aware of a criminal operation to launder cash through a haulage company, Genesis 2014 (UK) Ltd. Mr Hughes used an encrypted network phone, known as Encrochat, to communicate with a man in Dubai, Craig Johnson, a convicted fraudster from Stoke on Trent. 

They agreed that large sums of cash would be collected at various places in the UK and elsewhere, on a regular basis, with the intention of transporting the cash to London where it could be transferred onwards and legitimised. The scale of cash involved, the lack of any explanation for its provenance and the surrounding circumstances, provided an irresistible inference that the cash was the proceeds of criminality.  The total amount of cash at issue was between £100 million and £150 million depending on the size of the loads for each journey.

“ If you need to communicate top classified information or you need to store secret data and be absolutely sure that no state-sponsored hackers, no foreign Governments , no intelligence agencies will be ever able to decipher the files, you need an Above Military Level Offline SuperEncryption System” 


Rule number 1 ☝🏼:

EncroChat evidences has been collected from the storage on the devices seized . A real military grade encryption device can’t be ever accessed by any digital forensic tools such as Cellebrite.

Rule number 2 :

Never 👎 use encryption services that are server based . Servers can be hacked easily and all data passing through them can be intercept. Servers also store the messages so that also this cloud based storage can be accessed and used as evidence.

Rule number 3:

Never , ⛔️ ever trust their party encryption services. The moment you trust a third party for generating your encryption keys, manage and store them for you , it’s game over . It’s like giving the keys of your bank vault to a total stranger .

Rule number 4 :

Stop 🛑 trusting cheap online encrypted phone suppliers! ⚠️ The garbage online are fake encrypted phones based on a $ 50 USD cheap Android cellphone bought in China and installed with a very low level security end to end encrypted messaging app.

Work like a pro, like intelligence agencies do ! Stop being scammed by online marketers selling you security illusions .
