Fantasist of the day: Brian McDonnell of US Oil & Gas – “it’s the way I tell em”

2020-12-11 11:00:08

Little Brian is a comic genius. His company may have been booted off two markets junior to AIM for gargantuan regulatory breaches but USOP, once ramped to £500 million, struggles on raising money as a private company. And so it still issues releases to sucker in more investors. They are a scream. Little Brian has won the highly contested “ShareProphets CEO fantasist of the year” several times in the past few years and with a release today, he must be a very strong contender for 2020.


Brian McDonnell of US Oil & Gas you are a liar, a cowardly bully, and your company is a fraud - please sue me for libel

2017-09-29 04:25:59

I have on more than 40 occasions called out Brian McDonnell as a liar and a crook and his disgusting fraud of a company US Oil and Gas (USOP) as an outright fraud which lies to investors. I see that the morally bankrupt London form of Alexander David has today raised another £700,000 for Brian to squander but do his shareholders know just how he squanders it. I have a tale that will shock you before I invite the cowardly lying criminal leprechaun to sue me for libel.


US Oil & Gas - its still avin a bubble

2016-06-25 10:58:54

Serial publisher of lies, US Oil & Gas (USOP) now has cash to spend having found some of the stupidest people on this planet to pony up cash in its 27p placing. Hence now it has to update us all on its quest for oil where there is none. I apologise on missing this gem from comedy central on 17 June but better late than never.


US Oil & Gas raises $771,000 - Good Money after bad

2016-04-19 08:03:24

US Oil & Gas (USOP) has announced that 15% of its shareholders were not just thick but full lobotomy patients. You have to be a fecking imbecile to own this stock anyway but 15% of the FIs were so stupid they took up the open offer at 27p and thus bankruptcy is postponed.


All hail the genius of Google as common sense is searched out - ref USOP

2016-03-22 03:53:59

I just had to laugh, for my smartphone seems to have offered me a spot of interpretation even better than the ShareProphets RNS Translation service. It is running Android, and is thus a beneficiary of the genius of Google. It all relates to the comedy gold at US Oil & Gas (USOP) which has continued today as you can see HERE


Fraudsters at US Oil & Gas are avin a bubble -more pure gold comedy genius

2016-03-22 02:58:50

You will remember that fraudulent and now unlisted joke company US Oil & Gas (USOP) is trying to raise £2.9 million (but will settle for a minimum of £300,000) to keep the lights on. The pure gold comedy genious from our lying friends in Ireland continues.


US Oil & Gas - is it time for comic relief already? The fraudsters excel themselves

2016-03-15 08:13:41

I have been saving a duo of no-one is watching O'Clock announcements from Thursday 10 March and a third the next morning from the fraudsters at US Oil & Gas (USOP) for a day when I needed cheering up. After an hour in the dentist's chair, today is such a day. This is sheer comedy genius from Brian "the dog ate my drilling data" McDonnell. Say what you want about wee Brian but you cannot deny that this guy is the funniest Irishman since Father Ted. Where to start?


A Christmas cracker from the liars at US Oil & Gas

2015-12-24 02:21:22

"It's the way I tell em" used to say Frank Carson, before continuing "Its a cracker". But old Frank had nothing on his fellow Irish comedian wee Brian McDonnell of US Oil & Gas (USOP) which served up a stormer of a Christmas update yesterday. Brian, you crack me's the way you tell em. That classic "The dog ate our drill test results" still has me in stitches. And now this.


US Oil & Gas 5 days to shareholder Death

2015-08-13 00:27:44

Next Tuesday, GXG Markets shuts down which is terminally bad news for shareholders in the joke lie machine company US Oil & Gas (USOP). Other companies are migrating to ISDX but having been booted off that market already for regulatory failings it seems unlikely that liar in chief wee Brian McDonnell will be welcomed with open arms there. Meanwhile the cash situation is now critical. I fear that the end is nigh for my fellow Irishmen.


US Oil & Gas - Results and a placing statement which is simply untrue

2015-05-30 00:44:16

At no-one is watching O 'clock on Friday, the POS US Oil & Gas (USOP) snuck out dismal results and a placing statement which contained an obvious lie and which only postpones death.


US Oil & Gas - the worthless shares are trading again, GXG shows its regulators are as useless as the rest

2015-05-26 01:20:44

GXG Markets has concluded its investigation into US Oil & Gas and given it the all clear. Jeepers are all regulators imbeciles? It was demonstrated that on repeated occassions USOP made statements that were simlly not true and were directly contradicted by authorities in the USA. That has been well documented here. As such we can only conclude that misleading investors is all well and dandy on GXG just as it is on the AIM casino. Really I cannot see what the point is of playing it straight anymore?


US Oil & Gas - so when is the report into your lies due? When is insolvency?

2015-05-16 00:54:52

Once upon a time US Oil & Gas (USOP) was the darling of Bulletin Board loons. Okay it gotr booted off ISDX and had completely worthless assets but it huffed and puffed and its shares raced ahead on GXG markets. But as it teeters on the brink of insolvency surely it should update us all - if only to give us a good laugh - on how the regulatory enquiries into its numerous lies are going and on how close it is to bankruptcy.


US Oil & Gas – the fraudsters are delusional

2015-03-18 04:41:42

Another day and another statement is issued from the madhouse that is the bunker, I mean boardroom at US Oil & Gas (USOP). These folks are delusional. Their Company is also, by my sums, pretty much insolvent within weeks.


The US Oil & Gas fraud – GXG markets shows up AIM for the casino it really is

2015-02-10 06:20:13

We have many, many times accused Bulletin Board darling US Oil & Gas (USOP) of being a total fraud run by a serial liar Brian McDonnell. Wee Brian has huffed and puffed in private to deluded shareholders about taking legal action against me but he has not done so because he is a proven liar and his company is a proven fraud and the little shit knows it. The latest news from the GXG market where USOP shares remain suspended really shows what a casino AIM has become.


US Oil & Gas - Christmas cracker – Suspension & Full Regulatory Investigation

2014-12-16 02:57:03

I have pointed out numerous times that GXG listed US Oil & Gas (USOP) is a worthless POS with joke assets run by liars. Just check the archives on ShareProphets. Wee Brian McDonnell has served up a Christmas treat for us all with an announcement from GXG that trading in the shares has been suspended because of a disorderly market. FFS


US Oil & Gas – More Lies: Target Price 0p

2014-09-21 11:41:10

As I have demonstrated on a number of occasions US Oil & Gas (USOP) lies to the sad band of financial masochists on its shareholder list on a serial basis and its CEO young Brian McDonnell is a liar. In that vein I bring you its latest release from Friday which is par for the course. i.e total bollocks.


US Oil & Gas – Last trade was at 34p – get out now while you can – target 0p.

2014-08-23 08:06:34

Last time I warned about the GXG listed POS that is US Oil & Gas (USOP) was on July 28 HERE when the market cap was £20 million. Based on the last trade at 34p it is now £13.98 million. It is overvalued by £13.98 million sell while you can. My target price remains 0p


US Oil & Gas – Conversation with Alexander David Securities…developing: New target price 0p.

2014-07-28 11:41:07

Yesterday I accused US Oil & Gas (USOP) CEO Brian McDonnell of being a liar and a fraud and said that he should go to prison. I invite him to sue me for libel as this is a watertight case and such a case would only hasten his destruction  I also pointed out that this raises questions for US Oil’s retained broker and advisor Alexander David Securities. And guess who called me this morning?


Brian McDonnell of US Oil & Gas you are a liar and a fraud and should go to prison

2014-07-26 19:22:34

Telling investors something that is untrue in an approved announcement (an RNS) as you endeavour to issue shares to raise extra cash is not good. Not only is it a lie but it is an attempt at fraud since you are raising money on the basis of a lie. I hereby accuse Brian McDonnell of US Oil & Gas (USOP) of being a liar and a fraud.  He should go to prison. And if it does not resign first thing on Monday its advisers Alexander David Securities is a willing party to that fraud. It should quit at once. Brian can sue me for libel if he wishes but this is a slam dunk. The little crook is exposed.


PLCs that are Good Investments Do not issue an RNS at 5.52 PM

2014-07-23 08:21:46

US Oil & Gas (USOP) once issued an RNS at 10 PM on a Friday – that Liam Mcgrattan is a comic genius. But he serves to demonstrate a valid point: if a company starts issuing RNS statements well after 4.30 PM this is a red flag that you should not be invested. Not a reason on its own but the sort of red flag that catches the eye.


US Oil & Gas – The Kilkenny Ramp, the jokes just keep on coming

2014-06-10 10:14:31

US Oil & Gas – why won’t wee Brian McDonnell accept some boardroom scrutiny?

2014-06-10 08:27:32

The long running farce that is GXG listed US Oil & Gas (USOP) is a gift that keeps on giving and at the centre of it all is the greatest Irish comic genius since Dave Allen, CEO wee Brian McDonnell. “It’s the way I tell ‘em.” No that was Frank Carson but wee Brian might use that line too.


USOP Comedy Genius Liam McGrattan is coming to the AIM Cesspit – you could not make it up!

2014-06-06 15:26:30

Well this is the acid test for AIM – will it accept a listing from Liam McGrattan the Irish fellow who has brought us the stockmarket disasters US Oil & Gas (USOP), TeknoMining and many others. If the Cesspit allows Liam to list IMC Exploration then it is officially a joke market.


US Oil & Gas – The Joke Continues

2014-05-24 22:38:53

At No-one is watching O’Clock (5 PM on the Friday before a Bank Holiday weekend) GXG listed US Oil & Gas (USOP) served up its interims and an operational update.

US Oil & Gas – More Jam Tomorrow from this POS

2014-02-28 09:02:59

 Today we finally have an update on the state of play at US Oil & Gas (USOP) – possibly the worst stock ever to gain a public markets listing. Not by choice does US come clean but eventually it had to serve up (predictably dire and predictably, as yet, unaudited) results for the year to September 30th 2013.


The US Oil & Gas Scandal - More Urgent Questions

2013-09-21 08:39:42

More from the growing US Oil & Gas (USOP) scandal. The Eblana1 workover 2 daily reports have now been released by the Nevada Division of Minerals and they're a mystery. They can be seen here Apart from the fact that key daily reports seem to be missing (including the reports immediately after an alleged oil flow), the data we can see, and the timeline, just doesn't add up.


US Oil & Gas Announcement – Sheer Comedy

2013-05-27 07:14:04

When US Oil & Gas goes tits up, its CEO Brian McDonnell should become a comedian. He really is very good. As our fellow Irishman Frank Carson used to say “It’s the way I tell ‘em.” The latest press release dated 23rd May has had me in stitches for days. It is comic genius. Oddly out there in la la USOPian land some folks seem to believe it. That is less funny.


US Oil & Gas – Award winning Bullshit

2013-05-17 09:44:27

Another day and more documents emerge. Among the absolute classics is an email from Brian McDonnel (the hapless CEO) to a shareholder demanding that the shareholder cease ringing contractors and officials in Nevada to discover things about life in Hot Creek. Brian says that it is illegal for shareholders to do such due diligence. What piffle.

US Oil & Gas Statement – an Irish joke

2013-05-08 01:50:45

Dave Allen, that chap from Father Ted, Oscar Wilde...all great Irish writers of comic prose. And now we can add to that list whichever genius crafted today’s operations update from joke company US Oil & Gas (USOP). Truly you have to be a class one crack-head or have an IQ of less than 15 to own this share.


US Oil & Gas Reports Production and I am an Olympic Sprinter

2013-05-07 00:38:26

A few weeks ago I reported to the Irish Olympic Committee that I had run 100 metres in sub 10 seconds. Since Ireland has never won a sprint gold, the lads were over from Dublin pretty quick to see me.


The Teknomining scandal – I accuse more Company Directors of being liars. Meanwhile: US Oil & Gas – avoid like the plague

2013-04-21 04:55:15

This is a story that started in an office above a pub in a part of Dublin where muggers go out in pairs for their own safety.


US Oil & Gas: Irish Danish Crapshoot in Nevada

2012-11-17 13:23:53

I have been urged to tip shares in US Oil & Gas all summer. I resisted the urge. Every day an email or a tweet seemed to land one of a dedicated band of believers pointing out how the shares were already a 100 bagger as they headed up to £6.90. The believers reckoned that fair value was anywhere between £15 and £100 per share and that I should get on board as soon as possible. Today they are 89p. They were 35p on Thursday before the CEO embarked on a media blitz to start the ramp all over again. So should I clamber on board now? Er...
