Aruba: Large fraud in VCB Security (Van Cromvoirt) … Remember that name from the Natalee Holloway Investigation


In an article from, Grote fraude bij VCB Security, VCB Security in Aruba has committed “large” fraud. If this company name and its owner William Cromvoirt sound familiar, they should. His son, Geoffrey van Cromvoirt, was held in connection for a period of time in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Interesting how the spot light always seem to come back around.

English translation can be found HERE.

ORANJESTAD – The security company with 130 employees VCB Security is bankrupt in all likelihood by fraud committed by the owner himself. It alleges the former director Suan Sweetnam in a letter to all those involved directly or minister in which he argues that owner William Cromvoirt money from customers has improperly spent. “We’re talking about millions of tons welgezegd who have disappeared from the treasury,” said Sweetnam.

Employees withdrew earlier in the bell when it appeared that they had received no salary and whether too little had been paid. They were back to the line.

      Now I’m still here (vacation).
      I can understand how difficult it is for you all.
      I hope that you all may find the solution.

      Now, wait a minute … are you asking us to believe that there is fraud, dishonesty, and corruption beyond belief in Aruba?

      Is THAT what we have seen over the last three years? Shocking!

      If I remember, GvC is the one who was said to be gay, and a Dutch court released him from any culpability in Natalee’s case on the ground that since he was gay, he therefore couldn’t have been involved in injuring her, or worse.

      That’s what the court said, I believe. Perhaps the single most imbecilic statement to come out of any court: he’s gay, THEREFORE he didn’t harm Natalee Holloway.

      You would think that our own government, faced with nonsense like that, would come to a conclusion about what we’re facing under “Dutch justice.” Guess not. So remember, people, you’re on your own.

      Boycott Aruba as if your life depended on it.

      Who owned the company when this happened???

    4. crossbow on August 12th, 2008 8:06 am

      Just type in VCB

    5. crossbow on August 12th, 2008 8:14 am

      Willeim van Croimvort says he has no security cameras installed at the hotels or the strip. His son and Michael Dompig do not work for the VCB.
      Yet Joe Tacopina says”

      “Van Cromvoirt’s family runs the security company, according to Tacopina. The company provides security for the Aruban government and private companies, including the Holiday Inn, where Holloway was staying, he said. The company installed the security camera and patrols the beach. Van Cromvoirt was part of the team that patrolled the Holiday Inn’s beach in the early hours of the morning, according to Tacopina.
      When he went to the police station, he was detained immediately. The accusations were rape and murder.”

      Well, well, well…..

      Perhaps now we know who has been paying for all the attorney fees for the VDS’ and the Kalpoes.

      Follow the money. The boy was in on the assault and rape of Natalee Holloway. These were the same folks that had installed cameras in the Holiday Inn (and, rumored….in Natalee’s room).

      Perhaps Aruba is slowly getting closer to all of the perps involved….Nah….I will believe it when I see Paulus Van Der Sloot behind bars. Until then, nobody will be punished for anything.


    7. Rusty Bridges on August 12th, 2008 9:03 am

      Guido (pronounced gay-do) was the one who escaped prosecution by claiming to be gay. GVC has a sister on the police force and a father who has bankrupt a security company paying off someone for silence, well, thats just a guess.

    8. Susy Q on August 12th, 2008 9:46 am

      Don’t know who’s paying Joran’s fees but the firm representing Kalpoe is working on contingency. Yhey will only collect if they win in the civil court case.

    9. Miss-Underestimated on August 12th, 2008 9:59 am

      You all make sense today. It only takes time for the gauntlet to fall. Aruba and it’s nasty’s will succumb to their own disease.

      Recalling the security shirt found on the beach. Also I can’t recall who Mickey Johns was employed by?

    10. Carpe on August 12th, 2008 10:14 am

      They are all gay! Whatever floats their banana boat, right… hey, I say pack him and his whole stupid looking, slobbering family up on the COO COO CA NUKU PARTY BUS, and send them all down to
      the mall to paint a mural.

      Oh look mummy, it is a giant pretty rainbow!

    11. Carpe on August 12th, 2008 10:25 am

      Yo Vanderbilt,

      That truly is a work of art! Your artist’s rendering of Geoffrey Van crom squirt.

      A beautiful piece of art like that really
      stands the test of time. I just looked at it
      again for the first time since 2006…

      Yupppp!!! You nailed it. I’d like to know if
      you have a website where I can buy a much bigger
      one to hang on the wall in my living room?


      Justice for Natalee!

    12. Vicki on August 12th, 2008 10:41 am

      Every DOG has their day….I knew he was involved…they all were. Bankrupt,you say…hmmmm yep, follow the money…

    13. Susan on August 12th, 2008 10:49 am

      Miss U – Weren’t both black security guards unemployed at the time of their false imprisonment?

    14. kayjay on August 12th, 2008 11:30 am

      Seems like it always comes back to the same thing..a bunch of evil, sick perps. protecting each others backsides…all up to their dirty necks in corrupt activities of one kind or another, and all scared their cohorts will inform on them. Nepotism also rife on that island. Bring on the hurricane season! Let the ocean reveal its’ secrets.

    15. Miss-Underestimated on August 12th, 2008 11:54 am

      Susan I am sure they were working security at the time, I cannot recall or locate where they were working.

    16. Victor Lazlo on August 12th, 2008 2:35 pm

      Must look beyond just Aruba for Natalee. Like Alabama. State has a wretched history of corruption, crime, and mobsters.

    17. Diana on August 12th, 2008 2:45 pm

      #2 Richard,
      Haven’t been on here as much in a while but do still check in to briefly review because I haven’t forgotten her. Today I also briefly reviewed a technology magazine and, just as I was going to close it and put it away, did a double-take. On the second to the last page there was a full page ad for various half-day events, all taking place this October, in 8 different locations across the U.S. These events are being sponsored by Vocollect and Aruba Networks. Here is the logon info:
      Maybe several Monkey mini-delegations would be in order for these events. The events are free but, as workshops and seminars go, they will result in profits in some way. I thought everyone should know.
      SM: Last I checked Aruba Networks is a company based out of Sunnyvale, CA. Not directly related to the country of Aruba in that respect. (klaasend)

    18. Maggie on August 12th, 2008 4:08 pm

      Is this the security company Gerold Dompig went to work for? It was his son Michael, who got GVC arrested and then Gerold Dompig came out afterwards and said his son lied, short time later, he left the police force for security work.

      Victor,, Natalee was the victim of crimes in Aruba, by people living in Aruba, not Alabama. That’s a fact.! Soooo mobsters in Alabama, called up Aruba and said the MB students are coming for a vacation, send out Joran and the Kalpoes to get Natalee and leave her on a cold dark beach at 3am,. so our group can get her. Make sure you get the group that has done this 20 times before. Please…throw in the kitchen sink if you want. The runaway bs..going to a foreign country to run away with no money, car, passport, phone, clothes… All she had to do was get in her car and drive away and never come back if she wanted to leave. Beth and Natalee had already bought clothes for Natalee to wear for college stuff in August 2005.
      Natalee already had the dates marked on her calender..

      Lucky for them they picked suspects who had mislead police for 3 years, lied about everything, refered to Natalee as a body, raped and killed her, something bad happened, if I knew where her body was I would tell you, the fact she’s dead isn’t good, if they find her they will see that chit, you will get prison if they find her, Joran raped her, these boys did something terrible to you daughter, 2 of the 3 raped her and they expect them to be charged with rape and murder, she had seizures, I called someone to throw her in the water, she fell and hit her head..I was fondling her while she was going in and out of consciousness, police that were friends with the Sloots and Kalpoes and/or related, a father that was arrested for premeditated murder, GVC and Guido arrested on suspicions of heavy battery of Natalee, framed black men for kidnapping and murder. Arlene was on all the time when GVC was arrested pointing the finger at him until her cousin Guido was arrested, never saw her again. Guido went on to hire the high price Milosevic’s attorney.. Joe T said Joran called Guido the day he was released. Paulus leading everyone away from the house for over an hour on a wild goose chase, when he could’ve just said Joran get home the cops are here.. My guess is Joran was already home.. and they were afraid of being searched. ?

      Also Hans Mos said they bugged the Kalpoes house and heard them talking about what happened that night. Lucky mobsters in find these gems. Pleaseeeeeeee… Mislead police for 3 years, lie lie lie, refuse to answer questions , still their stories don’t match. Even the parents have lied over and over.. Remember Dompig… Paulus knows more.. cleaning your car the early morning hours the night Natalee disappeared, blood that became chocolate in a car that was reported Deepak kept immaculate.. showing Natalee porn tapes in the car..Steve Croes who saw something that didn’t even take place. Lying about things Natalee said and did.. Missing shoes, noone seeing them on the beach.. Not to mention the bizzare behaviour the day after and evening Natalee disappeared by all of these guys.

      Lucky mobsters too who found Straten, friend of the Sloots , no body searches, home searches,(10 days) questioning and arresting 2 black men when it was proven to them Natalee didn’t return that night.

      Fraud in Aruba,, bet that is due to mobsters in Alabama or Beth too..?! Something bad happened alright, but it has nothing to do with Natalee, her family or Alabama.

    19. Allan on August 12th, 2008 7:49 pm

      It is know telling how deep this company was into covering up or participating in, preying upon all tourist girls.

    20. richard on August 12th, 2008 8:31 pm

      Here’s an interesting story … not only are kidnap gangs active in Mexico, they are starting to grab American citizens in southern California, take them across the border, and hold them for ransom there.

      That’s what it says here. Give it a read.

      Where can you be safe? The Caribbean, I guess … after all, no American citizen can be kidnapped there (never mind the Amy Bradley case) for whatever purpose.

      Guess we’ve got to go to Aruba to be safe.

      Mexican drug gang turns to kidnapping in U.S
      Tue Aug 12

      TIJUANA, Mexico (Reuters) – American businesswoman Veronica was stepping out of her car in California when two men forced her into the passenger seat at gunpoint, pushed her teenage daughter into the back and drove them into Mexico.

      Taking advantage of lax Mexican security at the San Diego border, and with U.S. authorities focused mainly on those entering the United States, the kidnappers took the two women to Tijuana in January and held them for a month before their family paid a $100,000 ransom.

      “We got an automatic green light to go through Mexican customs and then we were blindfolded and taken to a house in Tijuana. They held a pistol to my stomach all the time we were in the car,” said Veronica, who declined to give her surname.

      An unintended consequence of Mexican efforts to weaken drug gangs, drug traffickers around Tijuana are turning to abducting U.S. citizens and residents in southern California and holding them in Mexico as a new way to get funds, U.S. and Mexican authorities say.

      Mexican intelligence officials say Veronica is one of around 30 Americans abducted in southern California and taken to Tijuana since last November. Many of the victims are of Hispanic origin and hold double nationality.

      “Transnational kidnappings are a new way of operating for these criminal groups, mainly in California, and so we are seeking collaboration with the United States,” Baja California state Attorney General Rommel Moreno told Reuters.

      The FBI in San Diego says it is investigating 16 cases of U.S. residents kidnapped and held in Tijuana between October last year and May, including some who were abducted in San Diego County.

      Wealthy Mexicans have fled Tijuana since 2006 to live in San Diego’s plush suburbs and escape violence that has engulfed the city as drug gangs kill rivals, police and even children.

      More than 200 people have been kidnapped in Baja California state so far this year, a third more than in all of 2007, according to Mexican kidnap victims’ association Esperanza.

      Mexicans are outraged at the recent kidnapping and murder of the 14-year-old son of a wealthy businessman in Mexico City.

      Kidnapping has for long been a major security problem in Mexico but the cross-border seizures are relatively new.

      In June, the FBI arrested the leader of a Mexican kidnapping and drug trafficking ring in San Diego. Security firms in San Diego County who offer protection, consultancy and technology to avoid kidnappings say business is growing.


      “We have seen an increase in the number of kidnappings of U.S. citizens in Tijuana, including cross-border abductions,” said FBI special agent Darrell Foxworth in San Diego.

      Several Americans have also been kidnapped in Texas this year and held for ransom in Mexico, the FBI said.

      Mexican officials say the Arellano Felix drug cartel in Tijuana is turning more to kidnapping after being weakened by battles with rival drug gangs and the arrest of its top leaders.

      Mexican President Felipe Calderon has made the drugs war one of his main policies since taking office in late 2006. But the violence has intensified with around 2,000 people murdered so far this year and even the weakened gangs are still active.

      “The break-up of the Arellano Felix organization has not been as complete as we would have wished … they have moved into other activities such as kidnapping,” Mexico’s Attorney General Eduardo Medina Mora said in a recent trip to Tijuana.

      Police suspect the Arellano Felix clan is conducting cross-border abductions because so many wealthy Mexicans have left Tijuana and those who remain have heavy security.

      Most of the abductions are done in daylight, with the kidnappers using the victim’s car and threatening the victim with a hidden pistol, Mexican police and Esperanza say.

      A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in San Diego said the agency does not have the resources to carry out southbound checks, although agents do make periodic, surprise revisions.

      Mexican customs officials only check about 5 percent of vehicles entering by road into Tijuana and blame a lack of funds for the lightly-manned border posts, said a Baja California state official, who declined to be named.

    21. richard on August 12th, 2008 8:33 pm

      You have to love the bureaucrats … our people say they don’t have the money to check our side of the border, and the Mexicans say they don’t have the money to check their side of the border.

      Anyone who remembers 9/11 (which I trust are all of us) and the ensuing wave of spending on “national security,” must wonder … are we any safer at all?

      # 16 Victor go back to your slime pit in ARUBA . No one here wants to hear your BULL.


    24. Miss-Underestimated on August 13th, 2008 5:23 am

      Hey Victor, it’s time you all in Aruba stop playing the victim, and give back Natalee Holloway, who was the real victim.

      Funny thing, how come Aruba doesn’t want Joran and Paulass back on the island? What are ya scared for? Your daughters?

    25. super dave on August 13th, 2008 9:20 am

      isn’t this the little kid that pissed his pajamas & had a teddy bear and favorite pillow in jail.
      do all the little boys in Aruba pee their pajamas and sleep with mama ?

    26. Carpe on August 13th, 2008 11:39 am

      Hey Victor,


      Nat was alive in Alabama,

      then dead in Aruba after last

      seen with Joran and the Kalpoes.

      That didn’t change from 2005 – 2008.

      Who’s your daddy???

    27. kaye on August 13th, 2008 1:22 pm

      Larry Garrison who co-authored Dave Holloway’s book on Natalee’s disappearance was on On The Reord last night. He is now the spokesperson for the Anthony family. When asked why he was involved he said something along the lines of “Remember in the Aruba case, when Joran came over and did interviews some people were inclined” (we know he was going to finish with “to believe him” but Greta cut him off before he could finish. I don’t get his involvement in this case but I guess he feels all angles have to be explored. It just seems to me that Casey Anthony and Joran could out lie each other!

      Justice for Natalee Holloway and Caylee Anthony!

    31. A New Girl on August 16th, 2008 1:05 pm

      Casey Anthony is a liar. Very unfortunate now that her family is receiving death threats from the public—her behavior and withholding the truth about her own daughter is dispicable.

      What a sad story that now her parents and siblings have to endure this treatment due to her actions. If her parents know more though, they should be cooperating with the authorities. How can you be the last person with your own child and not know where you left her of where she is???

      Kidnapped my ass!!! What would be the motive? Casey Anthony has nothing to give, and her poor parents aren’t even coming up with the 500k to post her bond. GOOD FOR THEM that they didn’t do something stupid like mortgage their house for their spoiled, lazy, irresponsible child who defiantly sits in jail with her mouth closed and continues to weave her web of lies. Hope she rots in there and her Mother has the courage to give her up….she knows more than she is telling, too.

    32. viet vet on August 18th, 2008 10:21 pm

      Hey Victor, great idea. Why don’t you get your friends, Joran and the Kalpoes along with Paulus and come over to Alabama to help search among the many Mobster hangouts. Van der Sloots/Kalpoes sure as hell didn’t help look for Natalee in Aruba in the very early days. Guess they knew where she was. Alabama would really be glad to have the J2K and dad for a few days for as soul search. Guaranteed results.

    33. Patti on August 28th, 2008 9:23 pm

      No doubt the Van Cromvoit security company was part of the human trafficking scheme. Wasn’t his son the one that found out Natalee was a virgin in the swimming pool, shortly before she and her roomate were moved to another room…

      Who else was in that casino…

      and what was that note about?

      I still think there are others involved.

      Big, big people who have enough money to buy whatever they want…

      even a girl from Alabama!



    34. bull on September 24th, 2008 8:34 am

      You people are all full of shit, why should we boycot Aruba, while America is one of the most criminal countries in the whole world.

      At the same time that Natalee was missing there were 1000+ other people missing ONLY IN ALABAMA! yea let the whole world boycot Alabama, thats a better plan!

      But the 1000+ ppl r not important no, they were not white, blonde and rich + a “important” family.
