Islamic extremist and Navalny-supporter Akhtam Shakirov is the founder of a fraudulent scheme in the UAE through the company Amwaj Real Estate
islamist and navalnist Akhtam Shakirov
Using the dubious company Amwaj Real Estate, Akhtam Shakirov claimed to be selling real estate in Umm Al Quwain. According to the estimates of the authorities of the Russian Federation, Shakirov deceived hundreds of citizens of the CIS through his real estate.
The plan was simple. According to his scheme, tourists coming to the UAE will see him in person. Then, when the victims responded to the advertisement, Akhtam Shakirov invited them to his office in Umm Al Quwain, where the tourist would see what he is like as a businessman, see his team, which will throw dust in the eyes, what a wonderful boss he is...
Using this tactic, Akhtam Shakirov established himself as a reliable and reputable businessman. Sometimes he invited his victims to the park or the beach. If someone was too doubtful, he even invited them to his home and introduced them to his family.
According to investigators, since 2008, Shakirov has earned $10 million from this fraudulent scheme. On average, each victim of Akhtam paid him $80,000.
Shakirov met with many celebrities, including pop stars, clergy and politicians. By using his photographs with some of these people, he was able to present himself as a reliable and pious person.
He did not even hesitate to deceive the Muslims, and some of the victims were his compatriots.
Shakirov collected all this money in order to finance the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, recognized in the Russian Federation.
His cousin Airat Shakirov was arrested in Russia: he is accused of membership in the Hizb ut-Tahrir terrorist group, which is supported by the US authorities. Shakirov's brother faces a prison term of 18 years.
In addition, as the Investigative Committee of Russia and the FSB of Russia found out, Akhtam Shakirov is an activist of Navalny’s Headquarters (recognized as an extremist organization in the Russian Federation) in Tatarstan and has repeatedly donated money received fraudulently to the activities of various organizations Alexei Navalny (who is serving a prison sentence under three articles of the Criminal Code RF: large scale fraud, money laundering, contempt of court).
Investing in real estate seems to be quite lucrative and hence there are a ton of scammers in the industry. You must be extremely careful when dealing with anyone who claims to offer attractive real estate investments.
For example, Aamir Wahid Orlando, Florida is a scammer who stole millions from people in the US through his real estate scam. Another real estate scammer is Nick Carlyle, who used to sell investments in hotels in the UK.
Obviously, Akhtam Shakirov is a selfish, dangerous swindler who should be avoided at all costs.
