Anamaria SANDA: Am fost momeală pentru cel mai mare escroc român

popileanPe urmele lui Popilean

Poliţia s-a chinuit ani buni să-l dibuiască, iar ziariştii l-au găsit în doi timpi şi trei mişcări pe unul dintre cei mai mari escroci ai României, Gheorghe Popilean, care, la cei 77 de ani pe care-i avea în 2012, încă se mai ţinea de prostii. N-au contat pentru el nici anii de detenţie, nici faptul că era urmărit permanent; escrocheria asta e boală grea, e un fel de vocaţie de care nu te poţi lăsa decât atunci când ieşi din casă cu picioarele înainte.

În primăvara lui 2012, Popilean o pusese de un nou tun, menit să-i înşele pe creduli cu mii de euro, pe care ar fi urmat să-i obţină din promisiunile că aceştia ar fi putut să câştige bani din proiecte europene. Omul a dat şi anunţuri pe internet, căutând tineri cu vârsta până în 35 de ani, pe care să-i antreneze pe post de consilieri pe fonduri europene. Condiţia era ca, la început, să dai 500 de lei, urmând ca, mai apoi, să câştigi şi 3.000 de lei pe lună. După câteva zile, ţi se mai cereau încă 1.000 de euro, pentru introducerea efectivă în proiectul de îmbogăţire. Evident, la final, dispărea.

Gheorghe Popilean nu lucra singur, ci era ajutat de o armată de oameni, de la şoferi la alţii care se ocupau cu strânsul victimelor. Pentru a intra în bârlogul lui, era nevoie de un tânăr sub 35 de ani, care să fie crezut.

Cum am devenit momeală

Colegii m-au găsit pe mine: singura muiere ziarist din redacţie, fată de provincie, sub 35 de ani, cu accent ardelenesc condimentat cu cel din ADN-ul moldovenesc. M-au sunat, m-au întrebat dacă sunt de acord şi iat-o pe ţărancă mergând spre Bucureşti, spre ancheta vieţii pe post de momeală.

După ore întregi de mers cu trenul, ajunsă în redacţie, am sunat la numărul din anunţul ce împânzise internetul: „Urgent, luaţi-vă banii! Dacă ai până în 35 de ani, primeşti 10.000 de euro ACUM şi credit de 800.000 euro de la stat, după aprobarea dosarului”. M-am împrietenit numaidecât cu Popilean, mai ales că mare mi-a fost surpriza să constat că suntem conţărani, acesta amintindu-şi de tinereţea petrecută la Petrila, când lucra la mină şi făcea şcoala la seral. Ba chiar, pentru că mai aveam puţin şi ne găseam neamuri, mi-a promis că voi fi angajată chiar de a doua zi, pe un salariu de 3.000 de lei brut. Tot ce trebuia să fac era să ajung la sediul firmei lui şi să am 500 de lei, „bani pentru materialul didactic de 1.200 de pagini”.

Băieţii s-au scormonit prin buzunare, mi-au dat banii – cu regret – şi le-am promis că voi face tot ce pot, prin clipiri rapide de gene, să ajungă înapoi în portofelele lor.

Începe aventura

De acolo am pornit spre parcarea din spatele gurii de metrou de la Gorjului, de unde urma să fiu preluată de o maşină. Colegii mi-au dat asigurări că se vor afla tot timpul în spatele meu, într-o altă maşină, deci nu trebuie să-mi fac griji.

La Gorjului mă aştepta o Dacie jerpelită, roşu cu negru, în care se afla un şofer mai bronzat, pe numele lui Vali, care, în loc să iasă în drumul mare (unde se aflau colegii), o ia pe nişte străduţe înguste, spre o destinaţie oricum necunoscută pentru mine. De aici începe aventura. Numitul Vali se trezeşte Făt Frumos şi încearcă să mă convingă că, „dacă ştii să te porţi, nu câştigi numai 3.000 de lei pe lună. Ăştia 3.000 de lei se pot transforma în 3.000 de euro. Aici e Bucureşti, e altceva faţă de Valea Jiului, eu te pot ajuta să-ţi lărgeşti orizonturile, că am mare influenţă asupra lui Popilean”, în timp ce-şi plimba mânda dreaptă pe piciorul meu stâng.

M-am felicitat în gând că am hotărât, totuşi, să-mi iau pantalonii, i-am zâmbit prosteşte, ca o gâscă şi am răspuns la mesajul colegilor, care mă pierduseră: „Unde eşti?”.

„Unde dracu să fiu? În Bucureşti sunt. De unde să ştiu eu unde sunt?”

„Ce vezi?”

„Blocuri şi străzi, ce să văd?”

Vali se uită galeş la mine, apăsând şi mai tare mâna pe piciorul meu şi mă întreabă: „Ce se întâmplă? Cine te supără? Eşti încruntată”.

„Nimic. Mă cert cu prietenul meu. El este foarte supărat că vreau să plec din Valea Jiului. Dar, ştii, cum ai zis şi tu, ai alte oportunităţi în Bucureşti. Şi nu vreau să dau înapoi. Eşti sigur că vrei să mă ajuţi?”, îi răspund eu, în timp ce schimbam mesaje disperate.

Individul mă mai pipăie o dată, de două ori, mai schimbă viteza, iar mă pipăie şi – slavă Domnului – ajungem la adresa la care se afla cartierul general al lui Popilean. Acolo reuşesc să-mi dau seama unde mă aflu datorită unui container de gunoi pe care scria Primăria Chiajna; le trimit mesaj colegilor care, gata, ştiu unde mă aflu şi vin după mine, pentru că ei mai filaseră zona înainte.

În bârlogul escrocului

În faţa casei, aflată la numărul 10, o grămadă de oameni îmbrăcaţi sărăcăcios, care aşteptau şi ei la poartă să preia secretele îmbogăţirii promise în anunţuri. „Nu te amesteca cu mulţimea, stai aici, lângă mine. Tu o să fii mare!”, mă asigură Vali, care, probabil, abia aştepta să-mi fie peşte.

Popilean, anunţat de acoliţii săi, iese din casă, una urâtă, nefinalizată şi mă invită înăuntru. În curte, legaţi în lanţ, nişte câini ascuţiţi ce latră cu spume la gură. Îmi vin în minte toate filmele cu oameni mâncaţi de câini dresaţi special pentru asta.

Ajung înăuntru şi dau peste mizerie, mirosuri neplăcute, mobilier aşezat anapoda, aparate de fitness şi de găuri în pereţi, locurile în care altădată fuseseră camere de supraveghere. Pe birou tronează un cuţit mare de vânătoare şi în sertar, când îl deschide pentru a lua actele necesare, un pistol. Nu ştiu dacă e de jucărie sau nu.

Nu-mi vine să cred că bătrânul din faţa mea, cu părul alb şi ochii albaştri, tulburi, este un escroc. Îmi povesteşte de vremurile când a lucrat la mina Petrila, orizontul 13 şi a trebuit să facă liceul la seral, la Petroşani, până l-au arestat comuniştii.

În continuare, îmi explică că trebuie să-i dau 500 de lei, pentru început şi că sunt un geniu ascuns al finanţelor (în condiţiile în care în liceu eu numai media 5 am avut la matematică şi încă mai am coşmaruri şi-n prezent că aş putea rămâne corigentă):  ”Eu vreau să te formez consilier pe fonduri europene. Vei face un curs de 10 zile, dar în acelaşi timp putem începe şi munca, fiindcă eşti o capacitate. Mă uit la tine şi îmi dau seama că poţi face faţă, aşa că te pot angaja de azi şi în acelaşi timp facem şi cursul. Cursul costă 500 de lei, bani pe care îi dai la început. Chiar dacă nu ai experienţă şi studii, eu vreau să lucrezi cu mine, vreau să te iau sub aripa mea”.

„Bun”, mă gândesc, „altul care vrea să mă ia sub aripa lui! Bărbaţi idioţi!”.

Totuşi, îmi pare rău de banii colegilor şi-i spun că o să-i aduc în seara aceleiaşi zile şi plec. Ies din curte, Vali, de la poartă, îmi face cu ochiul complice, însă mă preia un alt şofer care mă duce la Gorjului. Pe drum, acesta îmi explică faptul că toată afacerea este extinsă la nivel naţional, de la Craiova, Focşani, Giurgiu, Călăraşi, Alexandria etc.

Am scăpat!

Deci scap cu bine, doar pipăită, ajung la colegi şi le povestesc totul, mândră că le-am salvat banii şi că materialul va ieşi fain. „Noi chiar nu am luat în calcul că s-ar putea da cineva la tine, să-ţi lărgească orizonturile”, îmi spun ei, râzând cu gura până la urechi.

După apariţia materialului, Gheorghe Popilean şi ai lui au dispărut pentru câteva luni, după care au luat-o de la capăt, într-un alt colţ de ţară. Cum scriam la început, escrocheria asta e boală grea, de care nu te poţi lăsa decât atunci când mori.

  53. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of „neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune „Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  54. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I ave really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  55. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  56. obviously like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.

  57. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.|
