Tom Winnifrith: The Top short sellers, bears and fraudbusters all together on April 1 - don't miss out

5.34pm on a Friday – truly no-one-is-watching o’clock – and up pops an RNS from NEX- (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) listed MiLoc Group Limited (ML.P) detailing the dealings of a NED in the company’s shares: he pledged a bunch of shares in return for a loan back in September and has now released the stock to the lender. Sound familiar? Are we thinking Equities First? So where is the RNS from September? And then there are the other companies on that NED’s CV – which include AIM-China Filthy Forty plays Jiasen (JSI), delisting on Tuesday, and already delisted (no accounts) LED Holdings (LED) as well as PAQ International (PAQ) which quietly disappeared from the Casino back in 2010.

ShareProphets has Red Flagged quite a few companies on AIM, but as we all know there is no problem of fraud on the world’s most successful growth market. This is why we created a diversified portfolio of Casino stocks for AIM head honcho and Sham Sheriff, Mr Marcus Stuttard, to invest his own cash and thereby demonstrate his complete faith in his team of oxymorons at AIM Regulation. With the portfolio heading towards the end of its fifth month, here is the latest update – and it is not a pretty sight.

Shares in ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Jiasen (JSI) have collapsed by another 38% today (last seen) after admitting this morning that having called an EGM proposing to cancel its shares from trading on AIM and move to NEX (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) the application has still not been made. This morning’s RNS makes clear that there is a deadline of tomorrow. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Surely it could not be that NEX, which even found African Potash (AFPO) acceptable, has indicated that it doesn’t want the last remaining listed member of the Fujian Four gracing its exchange, could it? Or is it that the company never had any intention of getting onto NEX?

Having dished up a ghastly profit warning on the last trading day before Christmas, China company and NEX- (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) listed Miloc Group (ML.P) has announced the termination of the appointment of its Corporate Adviser, Grant Thornton, with effect from 6 March 2017. We’ve covered this one before (see HERE if you fancy a good giggle) as its FY15 accounts were pure comedy and the history of its listing on London’s sub-junior market has been a festival of Red Flags for this purveyor of Traditional Chinese Medicines. Sadly, it looks as though the joke may soon be over.

Well, you can’t say you were not warned here on ShareProphets – by the Sheriff himself. Last night at no-one-is-watching o’clock (6.15pm) a small FTSE missive hit the wires confirming the deletion of erstwhile AIM-listed United Cacao (CHOC) from its FTSE AIM All-Share Index, following the continued suspension and cancellation of trading on the Casino, effective on Monday. It is thank you and goodnight.

Yesterday we noted the announcement from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play - and one of the Fujian Four – Jiasen (JSI) that it was proposing to delist from the Casino. Having listed at 82p per share in 2014, the current 3.125p (mid, last seen) seems a trifle disappointing. Today the company has given its reasons for the proposal. Try not to laugh….

Did it jump or was it pushed? ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty posterboy Jiasen (JSI), one of the Fujian four, has announced this morning that it is proposing to delist from AIM and move instead to NEX (the lobster-pot formerly known as ISDX) - just when we thought that the race to AIM departure #24 from the Filthy Forty was down to a two-horse race between Asian Citrus (ACHL)and MoneySwap (SWAP). Jiasen also announced the departure of a NED with effect from the end of February.

Send Tom Winnifrith a fascist lawyers letter as the fraud African Potash (AFPO) did on September 1 and your fate is sealed. Today African Potash was formally booted off AIM. Now it will fail to raise cash on NEX (formerly ISDX) and will go bust soon. Lyin' Chris Cleverley meet Karma. Ain't she sweet? Amazingly there are still some people out there on the Bulletin boards who think its all my fault and Lyin' Chris runs a great British Company. Whatever.

For what it is worth there was an announcement yesterday from FTSE stating that African Potash (AFPO) shares will be delisted from the start of trading on 11 January (next Wednesday). Potash has not confirmed this but it looks like it is game over. It cannot refinance while listed on NEX (ISDX) so it will go bust soon. Legal redress can follow but we can now start to piece together a few fascinating dates from three months ago.

The fraud African Potash (AFPO) has until 7 January ( saturday) to find a new Nomad or its shares get booted off the AIM casino first thing Monday. On the ISDX lobster pot (now known as the NEX lobster pot) it can't get a placing away - for reasons explained in this podcast - so it will be tits up within weeks. That has implications for Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Jamie Oliver is blaming Brexit as he shuts six of his over-priced branded eateries. But he is just another celeb tosser don't you think? I look at the real macro headwinds the UK faces. There is comment on Crawshaw (CRAW) and then a very detailed review of Lombard Risk Management (LRM) which is, I reckon a car crash in waiting.

African Potash stated in its annual report that on the ISDX (now called NEX) lobster pot it might be more difficult to raise money than on the AIM casino. I should cocoa. The last trade was on December 29. Liquidity is just nil and the 0.05p offer prize only applies if you want to sell peanuts amounts. If you invested in this fraud just accept that your shares are now worthless as it cannot get awaqy the £600,000 placing it dsays that it needs to survive. So Potash is going to go bust soon. But your cash might not be lost. There is a small chance.

That African Potash (AFPO) is clearly trading whilst insolvent is beyond doubt. It admits that it needs to raise $600,000 to pay its bills as they fall due but trading volumes on ISDX are often just a few hundred quid a day. It's game over. So where has all the money gone? There is a reason that the board did not want anyone seeing the annual report which finally surfaced today.

No wonder that fraud African Potash (AFPO) did not want anyone reading its accounts which have finally arrived six days after they were signed off. It is a gold mine for anoraks like me.

I am yet to get an explanation from Peterhouse Corporate Finance, the advisor to ISDX and (pro tem) AIM listed fraud African Potash (AFPO) as to why accounts for the year to June 30 were signed off on 28 December but not released until 3 hours and 48 minutes after the stockmarket closed for a three day New Year break on 30 December. This is surely a breach of ISDX rules and it shows, again, that the fraudsters are prize rotters. Why is Peterhouse not resigning NOW? But it gets worse, the actual, annual report was promised by 31 December but has only this morning appeared on the company's ramptastic website. Why the delay? How about not wishing to admit to damning comments from auditors RSM Tenon which show that this company is toast? The auditor does not mince its words.

Nomad Cairn has not resigned as adviser to Cloudtag (CTAG) even though it has lied to investors on a serial basis and committed Securities fraud. Cairn's reputation is thus in tatters. It thus begs the question of how any of its other clients are frauds, how many are simply not investment grade material and how many of the few good clients will want to be associated with the disgraced Nomad for much longer as it will not help their share prices to be linked to this rotten, stinking adviser. The clients are listed below by AIM or ISDX category.

Surprise, surprise. After three months of looking for a Nomad to replace Cantor Fitzgerald who did not want to sign off on any more lies, the FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) has found no-one to take on the gig. It says that it is still in talks but who is so desperate for cash that they would want to act for such a slam dunk fraud? If no-one signs up for reputational hari kiri by January 7 Potash will be slung off the AIM Casino for good. Right now its shares are merely suspended. But what about the ISDX listing?

I also pointed out that lyin' Chris Cleverley had failed to tell his shareholders. Today Potash fessed up..but it gets worse.

African says it is confident it will find a replacement Nomad but just in case... the shysters have been busy.

As far as I can see ISDX Rules are perfectly clear. Perhaps as a mere pleb I just don't understand, but my reading of the rules is that companies listed on the ISDX Growth Market will be booted off after a maximum of six months' suspension. China Sports was suspended on 9 July 2015 yet here we are six months and five days on and there has still been no execution. Why? Meanwhile we have a new board and all of a sudden proposals to raise new money....and Beaumont Cornish has been announced to have resigned as Corporate Adviser (the ISDX equivalent of a Nomad).

We have covered ISDX-listed China Sports Development (CSDP) a few times here on ShareProphets already (see HERE). The company has been suspended from trading since 9 July 2015 and as far as I can make out, the shares should have been booted off ISDX by now. Yet despite that, despite having had no Corporate Adviser signing off on its RNSs since 5 June 2015 (and we STILL do not know if Beaumont Cornish has resigned) and despite its interims to June 2015 showing negative assets (which were also the net current assets) to the tune of almost £12,000, just £1,530 of cash at period end but cashburn during the half year of almost £18,000 – and we are now more than six months on – yes, despite all that it was announced yesterday that two new directors had been appointed.

In today's podcast I deal with reader complaints that we have not given enough coverage to the various business interests of fat Aussie share ramper Jabba The Hutt. And so I cover Lenigas Cuba (CUBA), Big Jabba's preposterous claims about liquidity on ISDX and Solo Oil (SOLO) - placing ahoy! I also look at Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) - more shite from poltroons from the land where most folk are descended from convicts - Flying Brands (FBDU), 88 Energy (88), Kea Petroleum (TOAST), JQW (FRAUD), Northern Petroleum (NOP), Optibiotix (OPTI) and African Potash (AFPO). I also deal with some wanker on twitter who thinks I am a sexist and wants to have a fight with me and ask more questions about market abuser Chris Oil AIM IPO car crash waiting to happen, Mkango Resources

I do not understand Bitcoin, blockchain technology and the like. I leave that to smarter folks like Dominic Frisby who will be presenting on it at Gold & Bears and my good friend Jim Mellon who will – I’m sure – mention it in his G&B talk. This could all be the next phooey hype but it could be big so I’m getting a small exposure via Coinsilium – a two year old blockchain investor listing on ISDX later this month. I’m backing Jim’s judgement on this one.

I have already demonstrated that the two “acquisitions” made by Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) post its car crash IPO on the ISDX lobster pot were er…not quite as fantastic as the PR puffery from fat aussie share ramper David Lenigas. Now let’s turn our attention to his partnership with Rushmans which was announced pre IPO. Hmmmmm.

This morning International Mining & Infrastructure (IMIC) quietly left the Casino. Following the resignation of Strand Hanson as the company’s Nomad on 8 October, IMIC was unable to find a replacement. Under the AIM Rules for companies, the requirement to have a Nomad is one of the few rules AIM Regulation bothers to enforce. We are none the wiser as to why Strand Hanson resigned nor do we know why IMIC could not find a new Nomad. As far as transparency goes this is not acceptable. If the company is so toxic that even Beaumont Cornish won’t represent it, shouldn’t shareholders have the right to know why?

An explosive email has emerged, sent by David Lenigas on Friday to various brokers ahead of the disastrous Leni Gas Cuba (CUBA) IPO. Over the weekend false rumours spread across social media that there was a serious stock shortage ahead of the company’s calamitous market debut. The word was that conditions were primed for another potential New World Oil & Gas-style (NEW) short squeeze. If there were any doubt that this was all nonsense, yesterday’s crushing collapse in Leni Gas Cuba’s share price obliterated this. The rumours were completely untrue and it now seems that Lenigas himself forwarded the email below to a number of online stock rampers. Unsurprisingly this email is now doing the rounds.

I hope you had your beer and popcorn ready for the IPO of Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) at 5p because the spread on the shares right now is 1p-1.75p and it gets worse. The “size” is 25,000 to 50,000 which means that you can sell in parcels with a maximum value of £500. If you invested £500,000 at 2p like market abuser Chris Oil did back in July its going to take a long time and a lot of phone calls to get, some of, mummy’s money back.

On Friday Lenigas Cuba released its pathfinder document, prior to its forthcoming IPO - Tom has already savaged it HERE, but it is in fact worse than even he explained. Unlike previous Lenigas debuts, this one has a number of significant cautionary indicators that all might not be well. At 5p most of Lenigas’ adoring legion of fans will ask what can go wrong? The answer is possibly quite a lot, not least because so many of them have already bought in at 2p. We will soon see whether or not the market has exhausted itself of greater fools, but those that ignore the early warning signs could find themselves caught up in a fierce stock market hurricane from 02 November.

In the wake of proposed changes to AIM Rules regarding investment companies and cash shells (see HERE and HERE) I am drawn to an announcement on Friday afternoon from ISDX Growth Market-listed Chalkstream (CHLK).

As the crony capitalists enjoyed their Black Tie dinner tonight to celebrate the world’s most successful growth market, might they have paused for a moment to reflect on the horrific losses which have been seen this year on AIM? Fat chance. One number ought to have had the champagne going down the wrong way, and that is how much capital has been wiped out on the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty so far this year from delistings and suspensions caused by Nomad resignations. I promise you that number is a horror.

Why did the Chairman (Mr Geoff Morrow, of Gate Ventures fame) not quite get around to mentioning that the company was suspended from trading in his Chairman’s statement in those interims?
