"The First International Bank of Grenada will go down in history as one of the biggest banking swindles of all time. Aided and abetted by a corrupt government, Van Brink and his satraps lured hundreds of innocent investors to place their savings in a bank he claimed ""had a vision."" With evangelical zeal he preached the gospel of his bank, playing upon the religious and charitable aspect but also promising outlandish returns on investments.
From Oregon to Nauru, to Grenada, to Uganda, Van Brink left a trail of financial misery behind him.
One Big Fib is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the shady world of offshore banking."
