Possible relationships Edit
Moshe Pesach Edit
The stepup-marketing.co.il domain was registered by Moshe Pesach of Hod Hasharon, Israel,  whose LinkedIn account lists him as "Entrepreneur & Digital Marketer" since December 2000.  Moshe Pesach of Stepup is listed as the administrator of Siggy's Good Food of New York City, an organic restaurant chain run by Israeli chef Siggy Sollitto.  Sollitto had helped launch the Earth Matters health food shop. 
The name of Moshe Pesach is similar to that of a Moshe Pesach of Israel who had a business dispute with Romanian-Israeli Sorin Beraru in mid-2001.  Beraru was alleged to run a mafia empire  and is reported to have changed his name to Bar Or Shmuel. 
The details include: 
In 1992, Moshe Pesach on behalf of Beraru created the Romanian business Ocean 92 Investment Ltd. The only partner in the firm was owned by Sorin Beraru MT Trading. Later, the company name was changed to Off-Shore and within a short time the S.C. became Atlantic Business LTD. In 1998 it united with the S.C. Phoenixmed-del, whose CEO was Balcacean Cosmin. Pesach with Balcacean sold bonds outside the securites market, with the authorization of the National Securities Commission (CNVM). At the CO-CI scandal hearing Moshe Pesach denied knowing that the basis for the Beraru empire MT Trading was registered in Nevada in 1989 and later disbanded due to non-payment of taxes. As it turned out, he also took part in its creation.
MT Trading of Nevada was listed as the company of Andrew James Vale of the Cartland Holding company listing an address of 26a Regent Street in Belize.  This is the site of the Caribbean Palms Inn.
The headquarters of Lord Ashcroft's British Caribbean Bank International used to be at 21 Regent Street, Belize City, Belize.
