When Aussie Poltroons Slater & Gordon spunked £649 million to buy the worthless fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) circa two years ago its shares were A$8. They have crashed another 30% today to just 7 cents putting S&G in the 99% club. The signs are growing that the end is not just 90 days away (when it must conclude a debt for equity deal with its banks) but perhaps rather sooner.

Oh dear. Oh dear. Interim numbers from Aussie law poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) are out today and are dismal. The company now has just 90 days to cut a deal with its bankers or it is lights out and any deal will see shareholders wiped out. The shares - A$8 when it spunked £649 million to buy Quindell's (QPP) fraudulent assets - are now just 12 cents. Where's the ouzo?

Oh dear. Oh Dear. Another trading statement from Aussie law poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) and it is grim all round. The shares - A$8 when the fraudulent businesses of Quindell (QPP) were bought - are now 20 cents. And they will go far lower IF a debt for equity swap is agreed and that is the best case scenario. The Rob Terry Quenron businesses are now shown as worthless, another day of V for Vendetta, Vengeance and Vindication for the Sheriff of AIM. Crack out the ouzo and make mine a large one!

You think that following director share buys is smart? Not always. I start with Coral Products where old Joe Grimond really is spoofing us all with a recycling of a dividend that really should not be paid. Coral also highlights those scallywags at Cairn signing off on another RNS lie just like they do for the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG). Then I look at Quindell (QPP) in that vein and at Avanti Communications (AVN) commenting on its refinancing completed today. Then it is onto the hot gossip of the cash crisis at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) where I have another story breaking this weekend. Finally I touch on the troubles at Guscio (GUSC)

I am watching high quality TV like Midsomer Murders as the Mrs is away. I am bombarded with adverts for online fashion and holiday booking and am terribly confused - I need health guru Paul Scott to help explain what is going on as something is just not right. Then I look at when the criminal gangs at Quindell (QPP), Globo (GBO) and Worthington (WRN) will face justice. At least one might be in 2017. And I ask why Cloudtag (CTAG) morons want to send cash to a convicted criminal who appears to be living in a £3 million house despite BOTH he and his wife going through bankruptcty. It's all very odd.

That the London market – and especially AIM – is fleecing investors on a regular basis is a given in these parts. Of course, most companies are run by honest individuals but the regulatory set-up is failing to bring those lacking in morals to book and investors need protection. It is not even the community of BBMs who need to be looked after either – consider the plight of those whose cash has ended up in institutional hands such as those of Tom Dobell of M&G and despatched to the great central bank in the sky via the fraud Quindell.

You don't need the brains of Jason Donovan (irony BTW) to see that the purchase of the fraudulent legal assets of Quindell (QPP) by Slater & Gordon (SGH) was a dire error. Surely heads must roll at the Aussie poltroons? Er..no. In fact, with the shares now at A$0.34, down from A$8 at the time of the deal, failure must be rewarded. Speaking at Slater's AGM, chairman John Skippen stated:

I rather like the ADVFN service, and having met its CEO briefly a few times I rather liked him too. And as a house matter, there was much to commend about the staunch resistance to pressure being applied on ADVFN to put clear water between it and ShareProphets was over the way in which, for example, the Quindell fraud was being systematically unpicked in these parts. That was not just an issue of free speech, it was a matter of exposing bad people and trying to save the shirts of our readers. So I have an awful lot of time for Clem Chambers, the CEO of ADVFN.

I then look at the two frauds: Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) and Cloudtag (CTAG) where the morons are as happy today as the Quindell (QPP) Morons where when those shares hit 650p. How the morons laughed at the silly old bears as they told us that £20 was on the cards. But of course those backing the Cloudtag fraud insist that it will be different this time.

As I have pointed out before with Quindell (QPP) there seems to be a strong correlation with the underlying quality of a company and the unblinking loyalty of its hardcore shareholder base.

But now to the NEW board, I have today written to the FCA and AIM Regulation asking whether it mislead investors on August 5 2015 in a material way with regard to its Himex subsidiary

Twelve times, by email and by twitter I asked former Tory leader Lord Michael Howard of Quindell (QPP) why the new board was trying to bury evidence of the fraud committed by the old board by not filing accounts for Quindell Financial Services – the vehicle ex CEO Rob Fielding used to half inch almost £2 million in a sham deal with convicted Nigerian fraudster Andrew O’Dua. Lord Howard has now responded to THIS article and my question. Sadly his answer is er...not factually accurate.

I’ve had an interesting discussion with our stalwart reader Wildrides on my recent 88 Energy piece (88E). Cut a long story short Wildrides has made a number of comments on pieces I’ve written pointing out the obvious flaws in the businesses I’ve covered. Wildrides and I swap the odd email, so I do know his real name. He is an experienced investor and someone whose opinion I respect, but our recent exchange has left me wondering; does AIM make thieves of us all?

The fraud at Himex was one of the biggest at Quindell (QPP) and the new board seems intent on burying the bad news. It has made bullish statements about the state of play at Himex knowing full well that it could not justify those statements. Now the unit’s founder Hassan Sadiq, a long term henchman and near neighbour of fraudster Rob Terry, has left the company. This whole thing stinks and the NEW board as well as the old now faces massive questions.

How much did the fraudsters at Quindell (QPP) pay - with ther folk's money - to their mates who owned the duff entity at Ingenie which was going to conquer the world? Remind me did Jug ears Gary Lineker make £5 million or was it only £3 million. How about Rob Terry’s pal Richard King? We always knew it was a load of hot air and now as the Serious Fraud Office prepares to swoop on Terry and others (not Jug ears, I stress) the new board at Quindell is quietly shutting down the fraudulent non-operations.

Thanks to an avid reader I have been alerted to a very interesting filing at Companies House from Quob Park Estate. Anoraks of the world unite at ShareProphets! It concerns the issue of 2,855,566 shares in Quob on 29 Dec 2014. The consideration was originally notified (see HERE) as being the ratio of Quob Park Estate Limited shares issued for listed securities to settle consideration value of £2,855,566 (with roll-over relief claimed). But a replacement filing now notes simply a cash consideration of £1 per share (see HERE).

I have written to Lord Howard and the SFO to alert them to this and ask why?

Needless to say, when a fraud scandal breaks one of the questions which gets asked is where were the auditors? In some cases the audit is shown to be hopeless - I would imagine that some will view KPMG's efforts with Quindell (QPP) in that category.

The company is then acquired for £1,354,000 just two months after filing accounts showing a net worth of £2,501. Quindell then incorrectly disclosed the acquisition in its 2013 accounts. The new Board then writes off all the acquisition as goodwill.

The Quindell (QPP) scandal keeps raining blows on AIM’s reputation, further calling into question how much longer this market can limp on in its current guise.

This week’s disclosures by Quindell (QPP) have shown conclusively that the gargantuan body of work which started back in April 2013 by ourselves and colleagues at ShareProphets was on the button. Along the way there were allegations of securities fraud, accounting fraud, VAT fraud, insider dealing, market abuse in what is simply a staggering litany of revelations. The evidence was passed to the FCA, AIM Regulation, the SFO and others in a series of submissions going back to April 2014. Yet the FCA and AIM Regulation utterly failed to act on the evidence handed over. The FCA took until June of this year to open an investigation – we rather suspect because of a me-too response, once it was known that the SFO was involved and that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) had been looking at Quindell. AIM has yet to confirm any actions beyond a spot of belated flag-waving.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the London Stock Exchange has begun an investigation into Monday’s share price fall of Quindell (QPP). Specifically, the Telegraph believes that the LSE, and by extension AIM regulation, is going to examine whether or not the company withheld price sensitive information, when broker Cannacord Genuity submitted its notice of resignation on October 21st. Given the market reaction to this news on Monday, when Quindell finally bothered let its shareholders know this slightly important little titbit of information, it is probably fairly safe to assume that Cannacord’s notice of resignation was price sensitive.

I’d love to believe that this morning’s statement from the disastrous, discredited and detestable Rob Terry is the last we will hear from this awful man in an RNS. Sadly I fear it won’t be, unless the authorities launch an immediate investigation into Quindell (QPP). Prior to listing Quindell, Terry’s record at the Innovation Group was there for all to see and red flag warning signs were waving long before Tom embarked on his valiant campaign. Once again, the “world’s most successful growth market” has fallen woefully short in offering British private investors any sort of genuine protection. The brokers, Nomad, PR firms and corporate advisors have all been paid handsomely, while thousands of ordinary people have watched their life savings evaporate. This cannot be acceptable. There are dozens of reasons why the FCA and AIM Regulation should investigate Quindell, but let’s begin with a first complaint of market abuse to the FCA.

I came face to face with a serpent yesterday; the pernicious temptation to short a stock on the basis of a piece I knew Tom was about to publish. I spoke with Tom in the morning and he told me about the £4.5million bombshell he had uncovered. This revelation was so explosive I don’t mind admitting it was the first time the thought of opening a position against Quindell (QPP) crossed my mind. I am human and just as flawed as anyone else. I also have a young family and the lure of easy money is all too enticing. I could easily have opened a spread bet or got a friend to short the stock on my behalf. But I didn’t. You see this is what most of our critics completely fail to see. We have positioned ourselves at ShareProphets to attack market abuse as vigorously as we can. Whatever else you might say about us and our editorial style we are not stupid people; far from it. How dim would we have to be to throw stones in a glass house we have chosen to build?!!!!

And then myself and the chaps from the FT and the Sunday Times were also booted out of the building. Not even allowed to wait to interview folks coming out of the AGM or management as they left. Why is Quindell (QPP) running so scared?

As it happens I was just having a long chat with my good pals at the UKLA (part of the FCA) today. What fine fellows they are. So they have turned down Quindell’s application to move up from the AIM Cesspit to the main market. Rob Terry tries to spin it as a minor issue but this is a disaster. Across the UK Bulletin Board Morons are feeling the pain as the shares have plunged to 12p. Guys you should have listened to The Sheriff of AIM with my many red flag warnings (another one today HERE) rather than slating me. You can all buy me a drink after the AGM next week to say sorry.

It's great that the 2014 AIM Cesspit Awards are this year being held once again at The Real Man Pizza Company, Clerkenwell, London. I hope there are chips on the menu this year! The food was rather poncy/rich for my taste buds! The last known case of gout in Northern England was actually a Southerner who relocated for the BBC. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time last year. Not to be taken too seriously it's just a bit of a laugh or if you're from London "Larffff"

Probably I am not as clever as your average Bulletin Board Moron but here is another case of why I just do not understand maths Quindell (QPP) style. I have asked the company to explain the following which is based 100% on documents from the Quindell website…It has had four days to comment but has not done so.
