Under the version of the investigation, the businessman has based in the beginning of 2006 two companies - United FX - Traders Group (raised money at investors) and Global Gaming Expo (used money of investors for game in interbank currency market Forex). The companies were engaged in trust management by financial actives of inhabitants of some regions of Russia and foreign countries (all about 4 thousand inhabitants of Moscow, St.-Petersburg, Sverdlovsk and Yaroslavl areas, Krasnodar territory, and also Belarus, Ukraine, Germany, Israel and Kazakhstan). Under the version of the investigation, despite the promise of high percent to investors from game in market Forex, actually mister Kalinichenko only collected means from investors and did not deduce them on the currency market. All payments became at the expense of money of new clients.

after to investors have ceased to pay money, and the trading account trejderskoj to the company it has appeared it is empty, mister Kalinichenko has left for limits of Russia. As a result investigating bodies have put the businessman on the international wanted list. However till 2008 the site of the businessman has not been established, while he was detained by the Italian authorities in the area of the Interpol. Initially court of Verona has refused to the Russian authorities delivery of mister Kalinichenko, but after the long appeal of Russia the permission to export of the businessman has been given. However, by this time mister Kalinichenko has already left Italy, and in courts its interests were represented only by lawyers.

After half a year the Geneva committee of the United Nations recognised that the Kingdom Morocco has broken the Convention against tortures, having resolved an extradition of the businessman. However at this time accusations on a number of episodes of swindle have already been brought to mister Kalinichenko.

according to protection of the businessman, the decision of the Geneva committee of the United Nations gives the grounds completely to stop criminal case concerning Alexey Kalinichenko. “ My client considers, and is quite lawful that it have simply stolen.
