Swedish Hells Angel Was After PokerListings' Andreas Oscarsson For $2 Million

New details have emerged which may shed some light on the murder of PokerListings.com founder, Andreas Oscarsson, in August 2008.
It has been alleged in Pokerati.com this week, that the 36 year old Oscarsson was being pursued by a 44 year old man who sent Thomas Möller, the former president of the Swedish Hell’s Angels, to collect $2 million on behalf of a company owned by Stefan Bengtsson, the nephew of the richest man in Sweden.
For legal reasons criminals in Sweden are not named in the case until after a verdict is reached and so the extortionist is referred to as the 44 year old man.
Thomas Möller was the Swedish Hells Angels’ president during the Great Nordic Biker War of the mid-’90s which resulted in 11 dead and 96 wounded, and claimed he was operating as a debt collector on behalf of the Stefan Bengtsson owned company.
Moller claims he was contacted to collect $2 million, which was related to Bengtsson’s $250,000 investment in PokerListings in 2003. Bengtsson was expecting to receive $7 million for his investment but only received $5 million for his shares following the introduction of the UIGEA in the States.
Moller then allegedly started contacting Oscarsson’s finance staff, turned up unannounced at a finance employees home demanding the money and started sending threatening phone calls and text messages to Oscarsson.
At one stage Moller attended a meeting with PokerListings finance agents alongside the 44 year old man, and in another incident one of Andreas Oscarsson’s advisors was shot in the leg ouside his home.
In the meantime, as the case continues, Bengtsson has denied any involvement, and has repudiated any financial claims against Oscarsson and PokerListings.
