Why does that matter?
Because earlier this month the CFTC secured a $571 million dollar judgment against Reynolds.
Karl-Joonatan Mets is a young man from and living in Estonia. Over the last decade hes made a name for himself as a stand-up comedian and poker player.
Off the bat the similarities between Karl-Joonatan Mets (left) and Reynolds (right) are obvious:
Needless to say if youre going to hang someone out to dry for over half a billion dollars though, similarities doesnt cut it.
This footage is from early 2017, preceding Control Finances launch later that same year.
The last video on Mets channel is dated July 12th, right about the time Control Finance launched.
In the video, titled Night from Tallinn Tinder, ping-pong balls, not smoking cannabis, etc., Mets interviews various people on the street in Estonian.
And if Mets repetitive downward arching speech pattern isnt enough, theres his nose mole towards his left eye (to the right when viewed from our perspective).
You can see the mole clearly in the two photos above. Mets pimples come and go but the mole features in every single photo of him available.
Mets mole sealed the deal for me.
So with Benjamin Reynolds outed as Karl-Jooatan Mets from Estonia, what of the CFTC $571 million dollar judgment?
The CFTCs judgment is against Reynolds who, based on bogus UK incorporation data, they believe is based out of the UK.
Meanwhile Mets, living in Estonia, is more than unlikely to have ever seen those notices.
Hes also probably not aware hes up for over half a billion dollars either.
Does the CFTC care? Does the Southern District of New York court care? Does Karl-Joonatan Mets care?
So many questions!
To be honest I have no idea what happens going forward.
We have the CFTC trying to collect hundreds of millions from someone who doesnt exist. And based on the judgment against Reynolds being final, apparently thats the end of the case.
What a balls up.
