He jotted down his suspicions that his life was in danger and eerily wrote: “If something happens to me, everyone is already warned.”

Children playing near a stream in Ingeniero Budge, Argentina, later found his mutilated limbs and torso in a suitcase next to a stream.

They discovered his bullet-ridden body four days after he had been reported missing when he did not return the keys to his rented flat.

Despite flaunting his luxury lifestyle on social media, Fernando was reportedly drowning in debt before his death.

Reports claimed he owed the tax man a hefty sum, while investors in his “failed” crypto businesses were also chasing him for cash.

The entrepreneur admitted his finances had “got out of hand”, but continued to parade his designer clothes and flash cars on Instagram.

Fernando had recently bungled a £31,000 investment made by the son of a senior member of a local football hooligan firm, according to Argentine newspaper La Nación.

In the mercy message sent to multiple contacts, he reportedly said he had asked the man to “wait a few months for me to settle up.”

But the struggling trader said his pleas had been ignored and he later got a call where he was “threatened”, prompting him to write the disturbing note.

It reportedly read: “Hello, well, in principle I apologize to all the people that I failed them and I could not pay them what they gave me. 

“At first this started as an investment in cryptocurrencies and, little by little, it got out of hand. Nothing that happened was on purpose. 

“In each new attempt to get ahead, there was always the possibility of recovering what was lost. And there was the mistake.”

Fernando’s alleged debts with Argentina’s tax authorities were dubbed “irrecoverable”, further adding to his growing pressures.

His brother Rodolfo Perez Algaba – who travelled to Buenos Aires to help locate him – said he was not a scammer, but admitted he had run into money troubles.

Just days before his remains were found, the self-made millionaire had shared a series of cryptic Instagram posts.

Fernando told his 919,000 followers there were “evil people” in the world and mysteriously wrote about being unable to escape from his “problems.”

His dumped torso and limbs were then discovered before police dredged the water and found his head in a rucksack downstream.

The “cleanly” chopped-up corpse was identified as Fernando thanks to his distinctive tattoos and fingerprint analysis.

He was said to have taken his French bulldog named Kupper on his travels, who is currently missing.

An autopsy found the businessman, who was nicknamed “Lechuga” (Lettuce), was killed by three gunshot wounds.

People are now questioning whether Fernando’s flashy persona was a complete facade to hide his mounting debts and dangerous enemies.

He touted himself as a crypto expert who could help others achieve success, which was propped up by his rags-to-riches tale to the top.

The influencer claimed he had begun working at the age of 14, before he started buying vehicles to repair and resell.

By the time he was 24, the influencer had a huge warehouse jam-packed with high-end motors, motorcycles and jet skis.

He later founded a car and jetski rental company in Miami, US, before moving to Barcelona in Spain, earlier this year.

Fernando had established a crypto investment and currency trading firm in Puerto Madero, Argentina, which had over 25 employees.

He previously said he had “lost everything” on the stock market, before boasting that he turned £78,000 into £310,000 “in four days”.

But several companies he registered through notaries in recent years also reportedly ran into trouble.

It is claimed that one was reported for fraud, another had no tax identification number and a third was in debt.

Although the dismemberment of his body was precise, police do not currently believe Fernando was killed by an organised gang.

Buenos Aires security minister Sergio Berni said the suspects acted “quickly, almost madly” and left a messy crime scene.

“A more professional criminal does it differently, not like this,” he told C5N.

“The situation was very spectacular, a somewhat macabre event.”

A woman is said to have been arrested in connection with the brutal murder after she was linked to paperwork found in the suitcase.

Cops still believe there are other suspects at large. The investigation continues.
