Mariposa37, originally born as Navy II, is a former USA politician, business owner, active citizen, and writer.
In April 2009, Navy II fled the United States for Singapore after defrauding government businesses through financial transfers and the illegal sale of government arms. After filing a guilty plea, he was convicted of treason and major fraud against the United States on April 22, 2009. Navy II announced his intentions to quit eRepublik on 28 September 2009.
On April 7, 2009, Navy II used his authority as a member of the USA Army to transfer large sums of cash and gold from American military installations Fort Dover, Fort Immuno, Fort Korbin, and Fort Nave into the corporate accounts of his company, . Upon discovery of the unauthorized transfers, Navy II fled to Singapore and admitted guilt upon his arrival.
Several days later, now in Romania, Navy II admitted in an interview that he had defrauded the government out of frustration with Congress, and sought to "teach them a lesson." He held out the possibility of returning the cash and gold as a show of "goodwill," but all weapons transferred into Dakara Holdings have since been sold on the U.S. arms market. Navy II claims that he sold these weapons at cost and did not receive a profit from their illicit sale.
Around 10:00 in the evening of April 7, U.S. Attorney General Henry Baldwin filed suit against Navy II for "Major Fraud" against the United States government (evidence was kept on eusforum). Navy II entered a guilty plea and was convicted of treason, piracy, and major fraud on April 22, 2009.
Darka Holdings/Zeira Corp/zC Bank Singapore Scandal
On July 8, 2009, Navy II gained access to the Singapore Armed Forces organization and started sending its stockpiles of weapons to his organizations and himself. He then proceeded to sell these weapons for his profit over the next few days. He sold himself the ticket company attached to the org and sold the tickets for his profit. The weapons company was re-acquired at the cost of 15 GOLD by the Singaporean government. The money from that sale was donated directly from the stolen org to Navy II.
On July 16, 2009, Navy confessed in the #Peru channel to stealing the org and that he would not be punished for it. None of the money was returned to the Singaporean government and it is unknown how he obtained the password to the Organization. An appeal to the admins for this user's permanent removal from eRepublik is still underway with large amounts of evidence having been provided by various eRepublik citizens.
Navy confessed to stealing the Org on IRC (A screen-shot of which is in possession of the Admins). He also returned the org to its rightful owner Arbryn after more than two months.
