So here we have a newly established corporation BioCan Renewables LTD. Getting ready to start a grease collection business in the GTA. But it isn't really new is it? The new corporation and its officers are busy moving over assets from Enviromax to BioCan Renewables.
Wait, is it legal to
disband a corporation for reasons which appear to us to be largely
driven by trying to avoid paying debts, avoid contract and do so just days after you take
from someone? In addition to recently securing funding for Enviromax operations, Enviromax has substantial outstanding
debt, both locally and to companies in the US. Employees are owed
back pay, back rent due, mechanics due for repairs, liens on trucks,
on and on. [6/6/16 1:40 PM] Anthony (+1 647-390-1630): That's why I have a
corporation and nothing is held to myself.
Most people, and generally the law, doesn't think it is legitimate to take someone's money and close the business just a few days later, but Anthony seems to:
Update June 16th, coming from Corporations Canada regarding the closing of one corp and moving over of assets to a new corp, in effort to evade debt, breach of contact, and/or move/sheild assets:
So quite clear there is a potential of criminal activity on the part of the officers of Enviromax and BioCan Renewables.
Who are the officers in BioCan? Glad you asked!
[6/6/16 1:40 PM] Anthony (+1 647-390-1630): That's why I have a corporation and nothing is held to myself.Yeah, but you made personal guarantee, and while it is clear you don't understand what that means, it is significant and generally means the holder of the guarantee can attach your and your wife's personal assets. Anyhow, corporate protection doesn't work like that in the real world in anycase. Many would think taking a loan for a company and within days shutting down and moving assets to a new corporation to avoid contracts and debt is actually fraud. And, many would also think the officers performing such action would also be involved as accomplices and implicated in potentially criminal activity.
Well shucks, BioCan Renewables is a family business! Anthony, Mommie and Auntie.
Hey wait, are mommie and auntie involved with the moving over of Enviromax assets to BioCan Renewables? Glad you asked, seems like they are!
Pretty sure Mary Lou was the bookkeeper at Enviromax too. Hmm, interesting things going on. Did you accidentally expose your family and their assets to potential legal action for criminal activity such as fraud? That would be a bad son indeed!
So what is the story with this Anthony guy? Sounds like a lot of people have had issues with him or his company. Well, according to himself, he moved to Oakville some time ago, and this is an actual quote: "I became an asshole", "I lied, I manipulated, people needed to be the way I needed them to be" "you would manipulate situations, you would do anything it took to get what you needed. So I was bad, I wasn't a good son... and I wasn't a good friend"
Seriously? Are we making this up? No, this is an actual quote, abbreviated, but exact words. Check it out here, appended from his YouTube vlog.
Wow, that is some far out stuff. Sadly, from our experience this behavior isn't over, far from it actually. In our experience, we have documented lies and manipulated us to get what he wants, we allege to the point that he perpetrated fraud and theft by deception, that's our experience and we are working to prosecute for it. Sadly it would appear his actions have the potential to drag his family into trouble as well, so yeah not a good son if that is actually the result. And it appears he is in fact a bad friend, look how one ex employee and supposed friend was treated after not being paid:
Wow, that's kind of messed up, especially since Anthony was lent funds specifically to make back payments to employees just two week prior to this email. But, we had to verified this, it was an unsolicited email we received. So what does Anthony have to say to this?
[5/19/16 12:10 PM] Anthony (+1 647-390-1630): But as for [edited] he can go fuck himself I'll deal with him
hmmm. "I'll deal with him..." Ominous isn't
it? Kind of threatening? Okay, so still an asshole and bad
friend it would seem.
On that note, Anthony accused several employees of what basically amounts to collusion or racketeering, and sabotage, stealing product and trade secrets (client lists). I heard from some people perhaps some clients went with one employee the supposed "ring leader", but when asked specifically for evidence on the more serious accusations, no proof was provided by Anthony, just more threats:
I came across these messages showing just how far off Anthony's view on things can be, seems somewhat delusional to me. I experienced such behavior, efforts to manipulate me or make me do something he wanted, completely out of touch with reality of the situation. In example, Anthony is texting me about how this customer likes him and is begging for this or that and misses their friendship, whereas the email I received from this person paints a very, very different story. How do you account for such disparate views?
It is clear to us that not only are ethically
questionable actions taking place, but we see multiple criminal
actions have transpired, including grease theft, vandalism/destruction of
personal property, abandoning/dumping grease and food waste on
private property, receiving stolen goods (oil), selling stolen
goods(oil), and our favorite- fraud. We are in the process of investigating these
actions further, we already have some definitive proof and are
working to gather additional statements and will subpoena police
reports and video footage of theft and vandalism, for which we
understand there are several sources showing Enviromax trucks
stealing oil and/or breaking into containers.
We're looking for other people who would be willing to discuss and provide proof if they have had issues with Anthony and/or Environmax employees, issues such as stealing oil and/or stealing or vandalizing equipment. If you would like to report any problems of theft, threats, destruction of property, etc. please feel free by emailing us here. We will keep your contact information confidential, or if you don't want to talk with us, we can put you in contact with our local Canadian Barristers/Solicitor's office located in Toronto.
We would like to be able to include any meaningful information we are provided related to Enviromax within our reports to local officials and our barrister, but will will ask you prior to doing so. As such any information provided must be factual, supported by evidence or sworn statement, not opinions or hearsay which cannot be verified.
Finally, we wanted people to be aware that
BioCan Renewables should be considered a rename to cover for Enviromax.
I wouldn't expect much to change other than the name.
We want to set things straight. In our opinion, people who lie, steal, cheat, don't pay their employees, breach contract, threaten people and leave their customers stranded- such an operation does not deserve to be in business and inevitably the market will correct itself, competition will prevail.
On that note, I bet there are a lot of restaurants which need a new service provider. Guessing by the list we are looking at, I would say over 500 in the GTA. Might be good time to look up any past clients you lost, they might be grateful for some good competitive service.
like there are a lot of restaurants needing service. I am getting
contacted by people wondering about Enviromax containers and what is
current status of the company.
According to Enviromax CEO Anthony Caputo, Enviromax has been dissolved, "tanked bottom line". See the accompanying text message and draw your own conclusions but we see the situation around Environmax containers as follows:
