Tintra – Two more RNS announcements which clearly vindicate ShareProphets

Published 2 days ago

Tintra (TNT) continues to pump out new RNS announcements. Some are bollocks and a spoof, but one vindicates a major thrust of my attack on this POS.

A question for Bulletin Board Morons: Supply@Me Capital Plc – how will it pay for the Tradeflow Capital Earnout?

Published 6 days ago

We know from the RNS of 6 July 2021 that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) valued the loss making, sub-scale, asset manager Tradeflow Capital at approximately £31 million and that approximately £7 million was paid upfront (£4 million in cash and £3 million in shares) which leaves approximately £24 million to be paid assuming that Tradeflow hits its revenue targets.

Calling any FD’s with a career death wish, a Standard Listed fraud with a CEO on Police Bail wants YOU!

Published 7 days ago

Readers of this website already knew that Umuthi (UHS) a company admitted to the Standard List after full FCA due diligence, was a fraud after our series of exposes HERE. You also knew that its CEO Gert Viljoen and the fraudster Queen Connie Van Nieuwkerk had been arrested as we revealed HERE. Today, it got worse. Much worse.

Supply@Me Capital – how will it pay the first monthly tranche of the Mercator loan which is actually a death spiral?

Published 7 days ago

As I previously explained it appears that the timing of the Tradeflow Capital acquisition was conveniently timed to occur on 1 July 2021 because it meant that the £4 million cash outflow for the acquisition did not have to be reflected in interim balance sheet.  It also enabled the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) to have another 6 months to draw up its consolidated balance reflecting the acquisition of loss making Tradeflow.

Letter to FCA – Chill Brands and the missing trading statement and lack of sales warning

Published 8 days ago

I have again written to the FCA as it is meant to be the regulator, no sniggering at the back please, of the Sub Standard list on which the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) is listed. The company said that it was going to publish quarterly sales updates.  It has not for the three months to September 30 and as the interims will, in due course show, that is because quarterly sales were sod all.  Thus, having claimed that it was profitable the company is sitting on a profits warning. That is a breach of market rules.  The letter follows.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Andrew Bell be fired for Christmas?

Published 8 days ago

I start with the wish of Joshua’s best pal to be a sheep in the school play. Like father like son, natch my boy is one of the three wise men. Then I ask if Andrew Bell will be fired at the Red Rock Resources (RRR) AGM before looking at Simec Atlantic (SAE), Feedback (FDBK), the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and my next missive to the FCA and British Honey (BHC) where, following up from my earlier piece, it seems an entire family was at the trough.

TEK Capital - another Chronic Investor cock-up and a valuation that looks exceedingly full

Published 10 days ago

TEKCapital (TEK) is on a roll. Its 15.1% stake in May AIM IPO Belluscura (BELL) has surged in value to be worth £15 million and to top it off Simon Thompson of the Investors Chronicle — in the past a great cheerleader for AIM listed China frauds — tipped the stock on Friday. But it seems Simon got his sums a bit wrong.

Is this game set and match to Matt Earl, the Dark Destroyer & Shadowfall in its battle with Civitas Social?

Published 13 days ago

The RNS today is headlined “response to further letter from short seller. “ Sure Matt Earl’s Shadowfall is short but he is also a brilliant analyst who has exposed so many frauds over the years. Surely the correct headline should be “lack of response to brilliant analyst who has exposed so many frauds over the years.” For the other thing about this response is that it is not a response at all, it appears a recognition that Civitas (CSH), has no response.

Where is the promised quarterly sales update? – Chill Brands is a most compelling short

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: maybe the FCA might deal with Rob Terry

Published 13 days ago

I ponder yesterday’s news which is terrible for Britain and which I find terribly disappointing at a personal level regarding the fraudster Rob Terry. I have a suggestion for the woke dullards at the FCA. I comment on the arrests of Umuthi fraudsters in Zim South and who in the UK now has massive questions to answer. I consider the Domino’s (DOM) trading statement and the issue Rishi Sunak faces on VAT.  This was a short working day for Jaya reasons, I’ll be back with a longer podcast on what should be a full day on Friday.

BREAKING: Vindicated again, Umuthi arrests now starting in South Africa – will the FCA now accept there may be a problem?

Published 14 days ago

I exposed the fraud that is Standard Listed Umuthi Healthcare (UHS) in a devastating series of articles HERE.  The FCA has the shares suspended but, perhaps because of its own grotesque bungling detailed HERE, has yet to admit there is a problem. Perhaps now that arrests have started in South Africa that might change.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - a bleak day for the good guys in what is the golden age of fraud & white collar crime

I discuss the SFO, FCA, FRC, the big four accountants, the media and political classes and the big lawyers and the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry. I fear nothing will change. I go into detail how it could and should, why Rob Terry was guilty as sin giving you chapter and verse. But I fear nothing will change and explain why.

BREAKING: King of the fraudsters Rob Terry in the clear, USELESS Serious Fraud Office closes Quindell enquiry

Published 15 days ago

After six years, the Serious Fraud Office appears to have dropped the enquiry into the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry. This is a damning indictment of the SFO though Terry will maintain it proves his innocence. I despair. Quindell was a fraud. It lied to investors. Its accounts were bent. It engaged in crazy related party transactions which allowed a series of hoods to make tens of millions of pounds but the SFO cannot get a case together. Watchstone (WTG), which is the new name of Quindell, has just announced:

Supply@Me Capital – Endless delays and the latest the Dog Ate My Homework excuse

Published 18 days ago

The whole team at ShareProphets has long been sceptical about the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the excuses that CEO Alessandro Zamboni regularly trots out to explain the endless delays in inventory monetisation.  Whilst some of the Bulletin Board Morons that have invested in this scam are slowly developing some sense of scepticism others simply swallow Alessandro’s latest bullshit explanation even when the excuse doesn’t stand up to even minor scrutiny.  Take for instance the latest explanation for the non-purchase of the FinTech bank as set out in interim results of 30 September 2021 below:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when's the profits warning from Sosandar & the tale of the unhappy young man

Published 22 days ago

I sart with the unhappy young man. Actually he is in his 40s. But it is a tale which, I suspect, is being replicated across the UK. It will trigger abrain drain as we go back to the 1970s. Then I discuss the scumbags at Abingdon Health (ABDX) screwing PIs ahead of an inevitable placing, I ask when Sosandar (SOS) will warn as it surely must, I look at share trades in the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they mean and then ask what the xxxx (Matthew & dog please insert word) Luke Johnson is doing investing in the lifestyle business run by the upper class twit of the year that is Marechale Capital (MAC). I am sure it will do better as an investment than Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) but not that much better.

Financial Reporting Council launches probe into Crowe UK over Akazoo fraud – but what about Deloitte & InternetQ?

My good pals at the FRC have today announced that it will be launching a full enquiry into the clean sign off given by audit firm Crowe UK into the accounts of the fraud Akazoo for the calendar years 2016, 2017 and 2018. You will remember that Gabriel Grego exposed this UK registered but Greek based and US listed company as a complete fraud in April 2020 and the SEC is now running a full probe. But … the FRC needs to go further.

Lyin' Chris Cleverly’s Block Commodities booted off Aquis Lobster pot – but what is rule 5.2 which it breached?

Published 27 days ago

As African Potash (AFPO) this company was booted off the AIM Casino after its Nomad quid when discovering – thanks to me – that the company had told grotesque lies to get placings away, it had committed fraud. Chris Cleverley, cousin of leading Tory James who is no longer claiming he wants to buy West Ham, then took Potash to the Aquis lobster pot, changed its name to Block Commodities (BLCC) and carried on telling lies to investors for which the company was censured and fined, after I pointed this out to regulators. Could it get any worse? You bet.

For 17 years I have been pointing out the lies and frauds committed by Eden Research (EDEN).

I could paper another few rooms with the online harassment I received from the 3Dimmers, whipped up by shamed promoters Old Mother Mike Walters and Johnny “the Rat” Townsend. Here we are and I am still on the case although how the regulators have allowed this farce to continue for so long really does cause me to despair. Retained losses now stand at £40 million!

Then a look at Real Good Food (RGF) and companies delisting before a look at the pathetic punishments for the enablers of fraud at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) I also look at what Australian regulators are doing to tackle pump and dump twitter gangs while the FCA jerks off on more ESG porn doing nothing about tackling real crime. I flag up Aura Energy (AURA) in this regard.

Eight Capital & the Supply@ME shares – the piss take racks up a gear, surely even the FCA cannot play ball now?

Published 31 days ago

It is hard to know where to start with the ludicrous announcements from Aquis Listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP) controlled by former Supply@ME Capital (SYME) boss Dominic White. But having seen the FCA overlook industrial scale fraud at Supply, in its capacity as , ahem, “regulator” of the Standard List, White says he is going to move Eight to the Standard List. Surely the FCA has to reject this application? Why?

Enabling crime DOES pay – Weedy FRC ruling on Grant Thornton & David Newstead over Patisserie Holdings fraud

Published 31 days ago

Nobody doubts that Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) was a fraud and it was a spottable one.  This website expressed its professional scepticism about how sales were surging while footfall in the malls where patisserie outlets were sited were collapsing. Others questioned how a company claiming huge cash balances has almost no net interest income. Yet Grant Thornton lead by partner David Newstead signed off on its accounts for the years to September 30 2015, 2016 and 2017 without question. They were sheer fiction.

The AIM awards shortlists are out – I'm gutted not to be up for Diversity Champion!

I would like to see some real diversity on AIM. CEOs & FD’s who are not grossly overpaid are woefully under-represented right now. As are Non Execs who hold CEOs and FDs to account. As for directors going for performance related pay & who buy meaningful amounts of shares in the market, they are almost non-existent. How about getting some diversity by getting rid of layers of fat cats, crony capitalists and fraudsters? Oh, that is not what the AIM awards team means with its new diversity champion award is it?

10 red flags we all might have spotted at the Umuthi fraud

Published 39 days ago

This weekend’s short letter on the N50 website will look at a company whose shares you can trade. Today, I am feeling pretty proud of my take-down of Standard Listed Umuthi (UHS) whose March 4 IPO was to have valued it at £368 million. A series of articles HERE has seen its sole NED resign and nobody now seems to doubt that this is a complete fraud with no business and that the revelations are truly shocking. Sadly, as it is an obvious zero, its shares are suspended but there are lessons. Here are 10 signs that this was a fraud:

Winnileaks special - FCA assures the fraud Umuthi NO formal enquiry

Published 42 days ago

By June 10 as the FCA suspended trading in shares in the fraud Umuthi (UHS) for a second time it had been aware for a while that this IPO was put together by a fraudster known for cooking the books and banned from doing any financial services work by the South African equivalent of the FCA. But in this letter, passed to the Winnileaks service, sent  to Umuthi while it asks a stack of questions the FCA stresses there is NO formal enqury. FFS why not? And some of the questions it asks, regarding the resignations of Memery Crystal and PKF Littlejohn should surely have been asked back in March, rather than after the shares were allowed to resume trading – albeit for only two weeks – on May 25. The FCA is not fit for purpose as we noted here. The letter is below.

I look at Mercantile Ports (MPL) and PrimaryBid and then what I plan, or hope, to do next about the fraud Umuthi (UHS), ask the victims to tell their stories. I look at Paul Johnson’s Power Metal Resources (POW) and its latest news which takes me back to 2007 and Mark Watson Mitchell’s Yellowcake. I comment on Asimilar (ASLR) and then go to town on Deepverge (DVRG) and its journalist trolling cock of a CEO Gerry Brandon explaining why I believe investors were materially misled in the run up to the £10 million June 7 placing and why the company is, for a variety of reasons, a total bargepole. It is just not investment grade material.

For £3,000 a month he seems happy to remain a director afraid of no comeback. Perhaps that is because, like the fraudster Chris Cleverly who amazingly enough is linked into this story too, he is well connected to leading Tories.  Or maybe, like Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer (Praise be the Lord), he is doing God’s work?  Here is a news release from our beloved Government.

MAJOR SHOCKING EXPOSE: Umuthi Healthcare Solutions- The Standard List fraud that exposes the slime at the heart of the City of London, part 1 The Fraud Queen

Published 48 days ago

After sending a prospectus for FCA approval again and again since 2017,  Umuthi Healthcare Solutions (UHS) finally got approval on the 24th attempt and on 4th March this year, its shares joined the Standard List. Six days after listing, its auditors quit, joining two legal advisory firms who had already resigned in the previous 12 months. The shares were suspended and then trading restored on 25th May. They were again suspended on 10th June and look set to never come back as this is the most scandalous of frauds as I shall explain with a series of shocking exposes over the next 48 hours.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I do not think camp Optibiotix realises how unloved it has become

Published 49 days ago

I start with the Chris Cleverly West Ham round-up and what says about our attitude to white collar crime in the UK. What it says disgusts me. I move onto Optibiotix (OPTI). I am still a bull but i explian to the company why it is so unloved. Then finally to Cineworld (CINE) a slam dunk short at 63p. This could be a penny stock after an inevitable debt for equity swap but, taking a 30 year view, I would not buy even then.

EXPOSED: Chris Cleverly – the serial fraudster trying to buy West Ham

Published 49 days ago

It has been widely reported that lawyer Chris Cleverly is the key London player in PAI, the company that wishes to buy West Ham and that Cleverly, cousin of Tory high flier James, is colourful. As a diehard hammer I put this article outside paywalls so that supporters of the club, the Ferdinand Brothers who back PAI and the current owners are fully aware that Chris Cleverly is more than colourful, he is a serial fraudster and habitual liar. Everything he touches may see him prosper but everyone else gets screwed. I have exposed his frauds over many years, seen off his intimidation of me as an investigative journalist and ensured that his company was booted off London’s AIM Market.

Perhaps the incredibly dim, journalist£smearing, PR man Henry Harrison Topham advised his clients that sneaking out one of the worst results statements I have ever seen at 6.25 PM on the last day of the month on which it was promised would mean that nobody noticed.  There is a reason why, despite all those expensive Harrow fees, Henry only managed to gain acceptance at Northumbria University when it was still Newcastle Polytechnic.

With the shares at just 43p to sell (and 43p overvalued), I have written to the FCA asking that it act on the latest rule breaches with, at the very least, a public censure.

Having commented on the potential insider trading and undeclared related party deal at Predator Oil and Gas (PRD) only a few days ago and triggered Tom Winnifrith to write to the FCA, I’ve been drawn back again to look at a few further aspects. So often when you find something really questionable going on within a company, it is rarely a one-off and it would appear to be the case for this company.

Friday Caption contest - Zak Mir's pumping of Remote Monitored edition

Published 97 days ago

During the early months of this year Zak Mir was the hero of numerous bulletin boards but notably those for Supply@ME capital (SYME) and remote Monitored Systems (RMS) for his almost non stop buy calls and ludicrous price targets. By contrast in calling out Supply as a fraud and Remote as an overvalued POS, I was the villain of the tale. With shares in both companies heading south at a rate of knots I invite you to consider the cartoon below and offer up suitable captions in honour of my good pal the Sith Lord. Post away in the comments section below. Do your worst.

The Fraud Frontera – now can the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood and Nomad Cairn explain this?

Published 98 days ago

Fat Bastard Malcolm Graham Wood takes fees from companies to write (positively) about their shares without disclosing the payments. He will do this for any company even proven frauds such as the late lamented Frontera Resources (FRR) which is why he is the whore blogger. His defenders insist that he is fundamentally honest but can they explain this away?

Supply@ME Capital Chairman walks – release total Bull

BREAKING: Did Wildcat Petroleum tell a monstrous porky in its very first RNS?

Published 104 days ago

If the FCA was not staffed by such useless mothers, it would have forced Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) to issue a brand new prospectus just 6 weeks after its December 30 2020 listing as it announced a whole new business strategy. But the FCA is not fit for purpose so it will, I expect, ignore black and white evidence that the very first RNS issued by Wildcat was a whopper of a porky. On the (sub) Standard List who cares?

Justin the Clown – this is the real corruption of Vox (in his own words)

I questioned the other day whether Justin “the Clown” Waite was somewhat lax in his personal holdings disclosures with regards to penny share dreadfuls that he was pumping and, perhaps dumping. But that is not the real scandal of Vox Markets where the clown is not only an employee but a director. And who has revealed the real scandal? The clown himself!

Graham Wood – vile enforcer of the cult of Versarien

Published 109 days ago

We have seen previously, through his emails, group chat posts and postings to ADVFN bulletin boards, how Graham Wood had many deeply “interesting” interactions with Versarien management, including CEO Neill Ricketts. It seems that as far back as May 2017 Wood ‘popped’ into the Versarien offices apparently at will whenever he was in Cheltenham (only 27 or so miles from where he lives), where he was exposed – deliberately or accidentally – to highly price-sensitive information which he then relayed to other investors in a series of thinly-disguised nudges and winks. He also openly admitted to meeting Versarien company officers for friendly little chats, relaying what they said in bulletin board posts the next day. None of this is in question, it is all backed up by his own words in verifiable emails and bulletin board posts.

Dukemount Capital – the most pernicious form of share ramping and two death spirals

Published 111 days ago

When a director of a listed company is interviewed by a fine fellow such as my old friend the Sith Lord Zak Mir or Justin “the clown” Waite there are restrictions on what he can or cannot say. Of course some directors ignore the rules and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation do nothing. But there will be at least a note of caution in making ludicrous claims. But in recent times, there has been more evidence of a get-around.

Published 129 days ago

First it was the CEO, then a NED and now the CFO has quit, drowning in debt, AIM dog Lekoil (LEK) of fake sheikh infamy. But the resignation letter of Edward During is dynamite. Lekoil itself has not put out a statement on this matter but Lekoil Nigeria, which it owns 40% of and seems to be at war with, has. Kerboom. How long can these shares remain unsuspended? Is the Nomad, hapless SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy, not considering whether to walk? It should be but, then again, it is morally bankrupt.

How do you know if the fraudsters at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) are lying in an RNS or financial report? Simple. If there is a “y” in the day, Supply is lying. It lied about its net assets in its RTO document, repeatedly lied about its sales pipeline, lied about its sales in 1 RNS and 2 interim reports and lied about so much else. And here is another lie exposed yesterday.  I have written to the FCA which has already suspended the shares once.

Thus the cash guzzling fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) says it has secured a £5.6 million death spiral. And it seems as if once the initial tranche of shares is dumped Supply/Negma can repeat up to nine more times. Talk about a rolling maul of selling pressure!

Is seven Nomads in less than eight years a record breaker? Why does Versarien have so many bust ups?

Published 139 days ago

Most AIM sewer companies have, perhaps, 2 Nomads every five years. Sometimes your company grows so you upgrade to a bigger firm. Or the reverse can happen. Or maybe a Nomad goes bust. Or perhaps you just have a personality clash. But to have multiple Nomads suggests something worse is afoot, that the Nomads might actually be baulking at what is going on. In that vein, consider the record of Versarien (VRS).

Here’s my comments and thought now I have time to write about this farce.

The big red flag is almost always what a company does NOT say in an RNS: Ref Zoetic

Published 158 days ago

Shares in the Standard Listed fraud that is Zoetic International (ZOE) are, at 56p mid, almost 50% off their all-time highs achieved at peak pump earlier this year. To have suffered such slippage amid a bull market for pot and small cap stocks takes some doing and is, in itself, something of a red flag. The posh but extremely dim and morally bankrupt PR man for this firm, Mr. Henry Harrison-Topham, tried to steady the nerves of the fools invested here with a trading update but it was no good. It was a case study in where what the company did NOT say serves as a red flag.

To have your shares booted off not one but three exchanges looks like more than carelessness – it's USOP comedy time again

Published 161 days ago

First, whatever Aquis was called back then booted US Oil & Gas (USOP) off for telling porkies. Then it was the Danish GSX Exchange where this company was once valued at £300 million which booted USOP off for telling porkies. Now we have a hat-trick which is quite some going for wee Brian McDonnell – the liar who runs this fraud which I have documented fully on this website. But this time I think it is Brian who wanted the shares booted off. Let me explain.

Detailed analysis: First Derivatives cleaning up its act thanks to me, Matt & the FRC but still a joke valuation

Published 161 days ago

Thanks to the pressure applied by major dossiers and a string of exposed published by myself and by the Dark Destroyer, Matt Earl, a new management team at First Derivatives (FDP) has started to clean up its act. I got the FRC to force it to change its misleading accounts. And the old, very whiffy related party/Panama Pump deals of the ancient regime are gone. But yesterday’s results show that without the gloss of aggressive accounting and dodgy deals, what is left is a dull business but still one on a glamour rating. My original bear call – sell at £46 on 28 June 2018 – was spot on. The shares are now £22.25 to sell but still a slam dunk sell. Here is why…

Update: What's happening at David Beckham’s Cellular Goods? The John Story Lock-in and his financial woes as Zoetic shares now almost 50% off highs

Published 162 days ago

As shares in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) slid to a new year low today, this will have caused real pain for some of those holding shares on a CFD basis as they faced margin calls. Amazingly, more than 25% of the free float is held on margin and the largest single holder of CFDs is the proven liar John Story, with c6% of the company at risk of margin calls. We already know that Story has had to walk away from a couple of placing commitments he had made since early April due to his increasing margin pressure at Zoetic.

Zoetic – as the shares tumble again is it worth considering the matter of revenue recognition. You bet!

Published 162 days ago

Shares in the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) are off again sharply today hitting a new year low of 56p. They are still about 55p overvalued and with 25% of the equity owned via CFDs there are going to be an awful lot of margin calls being issued as each new low is hit. That will create some forced selling so making this a sort of rolling maul which will see anyone dumb enough to keep holding racking up ever greater losses far more quickly than they might think. And thus at this juncture I ponder the issue of revenue recognition, now that Zoetic appears to have a bit of revenue. I say “appears” quite deliberately.

A golden rule about companies that threaten legal action

Published 170 days ago

Of course, there are some instances when it is appropriate to take legal action against some critic. If, for instance, the attacks are against wives and children, there is a threat of actual body harm or the allegations are just so outrageous (paedophilia for example) then a company might justifiably take action. But simply to bring in lawyers, who are always expensive, to try to silence someone who criticises a company’s business model, or its valuation, is a monumental red flag.

Today’s podcast looks at Braveheart Investment Management (BRM), Trevor Brown and the sham that is Remote Monitored Systems (RMS). I also look at the murky world of near insolvent Bidstack (BIDS), the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud and the warning from McBride (MCB) – where Naughty Nick is being naughty – what it says about McBride but also about inflation. 

Has Bidstack issued a horrible warning but only for clients of Stifel – does AIM Regulation give a feck as insolvency looms?

Published 176 days ago

If there is a material change in your trading outlook, as an AIM Company you have a duty to inform the market at once, as per AIM Rules 10 and 11. But if you are Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS) you do not give a flying fuck about the rules. So has he issued a horrible lack of sales/increased losses warning by simply speaking to the analyst at house broker Stifel who slashes forecasts? Is it the case that as of Friday clients of Stifel heard the bad news, other morons who owned the stock did not. And the news, is rumoured to be dire. Cretinous low grade PR firm Buchanan, employers of the journalist smearing fraudsters PR of choice Henry Harrison-Topham, are failing to answer emails or calls on this matter but should get off its fat collective arse and issue an RNS or at least say this is not true if it is not true.

Yesterday twitter was buzzing with shareholders in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) trolling me and attacking me about this article which they clearly had not even read. That is double evidence of how dumb they are. But in case you think it is just me who gets this sort of low grade trolling, check out these tweets sent late last week to Fraser Perring, the bear who exposed Wirecard and is now sticking it to Grenke AG. I often wonder if ther wife’s of folks who send such tweets have any idea what their other half’s are up to and such despicable morons they think such behaviour will actually protect their investments in duff companies?

SHOCKING FRAUD at Supply@ME Capital: explaining IFRS to morons at the FCA & elsewhere which means revenue is ZERO

Published 177 days ago

This is so simple that even the woke dullards at the FCA should be able to understand it. If you delve into the geeky world of IFRS you will see why Supply@ME Capital (SYME) cannot have booked any sales at all in calendar 2020. That makes its September 28 2020 RNS claimed booked revenues of £2.2 million and its interim results published on January 29 2021 claiming H1 sales of £386,000 also a lie. Directors have dumped millions of pounds worth of shares at prices inflated by those lies which makes this a fraud. So here, for chatroom and regulatory morons, is a detailed explanation of IFRS and what is going to happen next.

On the whole, it probably does make sense to avoid investing in companies run by rogues but if one is to break that rule, it pays to back a rogue who knows how to generate cash.

The trials of John Story – is he the forced seller at Asimilar?

Published 181 days ago

The shock suspension of All Active Asset (AAA), the plaything of foul-mouthed troll and penny share huckster Chris Akers, was especially painful for one shareholder – the proven liar John Story as he faced big margin calls in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE). How to meet those margin calls? Well I have established that he is on a lock-in at Cellular Goods (CBX) with his 15 million shares. Has he stuck to that lock-in? Enquiries continue. If he has sold even one share then he needs to issue a TR1 as he is on 3% and that would be a bit embarrassing given the lock-in.

Is 4.3p as a target for the Zoetic fraud too high? Green Roads deal suggests 0.5p is more accurate

To be fair, I never said that my target for this fraud was 4.3p, I just explained how, if you made wildly optimistic assumptions about current year sales then on a read-across from Love Hemp, 4.3p was fair value. I actually think 0p is fairer as Zoetic International (ZOE) is a fraud which will eventually run out of other people’s money. But a corporate deal in the US suggests yesterday that, maybe, fair value is 0.5p.

It is to be hoped that the FCA takes a dim view of a company that is now shown to have serially deceived investors as to the size of its client pipeline, so inflating the share price allowing directors such as chairman Dominic White to dump millions of pounds worth of shares on dumb punters. That company is, of course, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and if staff at the British regulator were not so busy jerking off on ESG porn they would have shut this con down ages ago. So today the fraudsters serve up an acquisition update.

Just for the record, I first explicitly warned the woke dullards at the FCA which regulated (no sniggering at the back please) this group that this would end in tears in October 2019. The Serious Fraud Office has, today, launched a formal investigation into suspected fraud at the Raedex Consortium, including the companies Buy2Let Cars, PayGo Cars, Raedex trading as Wheels4Sure and Rent2Own Cars. This is the group run by devout Christian Reginald Larry Cole.

I also beg you again to help Woodlarks – we are now just 7 Rogue Bloggers thanks to an injury and are just shy of £4,000 pledged - help get us over the £4,000 mark today HERE. The bulk of bearcast looks at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the hard numbers which show what a joke its Singapore deal is. Anyone holding these shares is truly insane. My target remains 0p.

Letter to FCA – The FRAUD Supply@ME Capital and 3 more major deceptions of investors

Published 209 days ago

That Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a fraud is beyond all doubt. Put simply, it has deceived gullible investors on an industrial scale allowing directors to sell vast numbers of shares at grossly inflated prices. They get to become multimillionaires as a result while mug punters will lose everything when Supply finally admits that it has run out of other people’s money. Which it already has but has yet to admit to. Yesterday, evidence emerged of THREE more monster deceptions via RNS which pumped the stock allowing insiders to sell. I have written to the FCA as you can see below.

The Fraud Supply@ME Capital – another win for the Sheriff amid a truly dismal trading update

Published 210 days ago

Buried at the bottom of what is a truly dismal trading statement is an admission that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has, as I revealed here, breached the 2006 Companies Act and not actually held its 2019 AGM. That will now be rectified. Yes I was right about that, the morons wrong, time to apologise morons. But it is the trading update or rather lack of trading update which should really alarm the morons who own this stock.

But fear not, the FCA has plans to regulate SPACs so that they can list on the London Stock Exchange and has today launched a consultation exercise. My submission, if there was any point, would be to just say No!

Explosive Dossier: surely the FCA and SEC must act to stop the backdoor stockmarket comeback of Chris Cleverly

Published 217 days ago

When your cousin James is a Foreign Office minister and tipped as a future Prime Minister and you mix freely among the Westminster great and good you might think that you are above the law. That certainly seems to be the case for Chris Cleverly who has spent the past five years lying to investors and raising cash on the back of it. Now he has a new con which he is trying to float on the Standard List of the London Stock Exchange via a backdoor reverse takeover into an insolvent company, and he has now roped in a US listed company which is already lying to its investors. The FCA and SEC must act at once. Cleverly’s crime spree started at AIM listed African Potash (AFPO).

Amazingly, after all the lies, well documented on this website, that African Potash (AFPO) told before being slung off the AIM sewer and all the lies it has continued to tell under its new name of Block Commodities (BLCC) while on the joke Aquis Market, the shares remain listed. Lyin’ Chris Cleverly has, however, stepped down “to pursue other interests”. That announcement came as the company managed to find an adviser to act for it. I wonder if it was a condition.

We may previously have given the impression that old Harrovian Zak Mir was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and was a bit of an intellectual lightweight if not an outright poltroon who could not analyse his way out of a paper bag and was also semi-literate. Moreover, we may have suggested that his analysis of certain frauds such as Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and obscenely overvalued promotes such as Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) might in some way be coloured by the fact that a company he works for, LSE ShareTalk, generates revenue from promoting such rubbish. If so, now is the time to apologise to Mr Mir, aka the Sith Lord.

Here, for such folks, is a tweet from a moron called Spencer Freeman who used to plague me seven or eight years ago.

In many cases it will be tiny. But in others it will be material and the forced closing of positions in these stocks could have knock on effects throughout the small cap world. Punter x meets his enlarged margin call in one stock by banking gains and selling elsewhere. I do not know how big the ripples will be but I sense it will cause some pain in some quarters.

I may have a couple of glasses tonight to brace myself for a period of thirst that lies ahead. In this podcast I discuss Paul’s comments on Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and why I think the FCA may not allow this fraud to relist. I look at Zoetic (ZOE) where I am hopeful of an imminent share suspension, and the pot and small cap bubble in general, also looking at today’s pot float, Kanabo (KNB).

BREAKING: Letter to the FCA: Zoetic and the illegal reverse takeover & other matters

Published 254 days ago

That Path could not get FCA approval for a prospectus involving a deal with Zoetic International (ZOE) as emerged yesterday should confirm that the floor shitters are all over the fraud which has lied to its, very few, customers to investors and to regulators and which is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy.  I have today written to the FCA to raise new concerns as to whether Zoetic can remain listed without issuing a fresh prospectus, which it cannot afford. The detailed letter is below:

Supply@ME Capital – the cash crisis is horrific this is how bust I reckon it is

Published 254 days ago

The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has repeatedly declined the opportunity to say what its cash position is right now when issuing updates on trading, today being the latest case in point.  The reason, as I shall show below, is that it is bankrupt, utterly out of cash. And that may be one, of many reasons, why the FCA does not allow its shares to resume trading. So here is the maths which is so easy that some of the morons who own this stock, perhaps even promoter in chief Zak Mir, might understand it.

ShareSoc still sticking the knife into shorters not the real villains

Published 254 days ago

I thought that ShareSoc, having ceased taking direction from he who shall not be named, had at last recognised the great job shorters do in exposing frauds and overpromotes. But it seems not. Cliff Weight, a self confessed shareholder in Burford (BUR) today makes a number of valid points on Neil Woodford’s comeback while still not admitting that ShareSoc is backing a laggardly and non battle-hardened legal claim for Neil’s victims. But it is on Burford where ShareSoc lets its mask slip. Cliff says of the FCA:

Supply@ME Capital – The liars admit to more delays on relisting but insists that its moronic shareholders have nothing to fear

Oh dear, oh dear. If anyone believes the latest RNS from the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME), I have a bridge to sell them. It is now 18 days since the company asked the FCA to unsuspend its shares, a process that should have taken hours, but still the FCA will not relist and the half-witted owners of the equity are being asked to believe that there is nothing wrong? Whatever.

Supply@Me Capital – Yet More red flags from the income statement

Published 255 days ago

We know that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is not great on accounting matters, given the three attempts to account for the £224 million deemed cost of the reverse takeover which has now been accounted for as an asset in the balance sheet, then written off to the income statement and now charged to the statement of changes in equity as I outlined on these pages and also the two changes of year end which led to its suspension. I note that it is still in the process of appointing a Chief Financial Officer. A Chief Financial Officer is clearly needed when you look back across the results published by Supply and the apparent inconsistencies as detailed below. Yes here are more red flags for Zak Mir and other morons to ignore.

The Crime Officer at the Badger Trust is now also demanding that I rewrite articles though I have committed no crime. He is not apologising for making up false allegations about what I wrote.  He is picking on the wrong man on behalf of morons who own shares in Zoetic (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Does the Badger Trust really think that harassing a journalist whose only “crime” is exposing fraud, at the instigation of those supporting those frauds, is a good thing to do? I discuss both companies and the failings of Standard Listings with regards to frauds which they demonstrate in spades. I also look at house prices in London and here in the boonies.

Having established, beyond any doubt, 9 days ago that the £143 million capitalised Zoetic International (ZOE) has lied to investors, regulators and its, very few, customers HERE, yesterday I showed how it was trying to cover up its crimes and, in doing so, was revealing that it had been using fake customer reviews, HERE.  Quote why anyone would hold the shares now defies belief so let’s now turn to how soon the company will go bankrupt. Because, to misquote Britain’s greatest ever Prime Minister, “the trouble with frauds is that eventually they run out of other people’s money”.  So how close to the precipice is Zoetic and can it be saved?

But Supply shares remained suspended all day. Its moronic shareholders see this as no issue and assume that trading will restart Monday AM. I have bad news for them.

Letter to AIM Regulation – Verditek: there must be a formal enquiry into the pre-placing deceit

That is despite it announcing on June 30 that its Italian operation was now “in production and is generating revenue” and the announcement of no less than EIGHT separate orders from 30 June onwards. All of those “orders” were announced before a bailout placing on October 6. And it is not as if this company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, has not got extensive form in announcing big orders before placings which then turn out to be bogus. The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation could have stopped this if they had heeded my calls in a letter to them about a full enquiry into past pre-placing deceits going back right to the IPO but they did nothing. There now needs to be a full enquiry into the company and into Nomad WH Ireland with public censures resulting. My letter is below:

Belatedly, MPs are waking up to the failings of the FCA with regard to London & Capital Finance but there have been a stream of other mini-bond disasters where I have issued explicit warnings over two years and the FCA has done BUGGER ALL to stop them from continuing to raise funds. Some have already gone tits up so losing vulnerable savers hundreds of millions of pounds. Others are car crashes in waiting. I am so angry at the FCA for letting down those who are most vulnerable.

I wonder what the bill was (way back in 2015!) for thinking up the new name? All I know is, when you (still) have to provide a pronunciation guide (“REL-EX” if you were wondering), it ain’t a good look. Anyhow, the ‘X-factor’ of just sticking the twenty-fourth letter of the alphabet at the end of a logical name is so…2015 but I have to grudgingly admit that the company – which describes itself as a ‘global provider of information-based analytics and decision tools for professional and business customers’ – is a good ‘un…

After his role in anabling the fraud at Sefton Resources (SER), including in smearing the UK’s top investigative journalist, Dr Michael Green should NOT be working in financial services. You know my views. But he is. and his job these days seems to be penning bonkers research notes on small mining stocks setting insane share price targets which are multiples of the current share price. You may remember his classic piece on Bluebird Merchant (BMV) where the target – and I say this as an enthusiastic sharenholder – was just insane. Then there was a classic on the worthless James Parsons POS Ascent. His latest note is on Xtract (XTR) where he predicts profits of 500% for those buying the shares. If you enjoy a piece of badly wfritten fiction and don’t have a Jeffrey Archer to hand, the note is below.

Yesterday in a detailed bearcast I demonstrated industrial scale deception of investors in Verditek (VDTK) and of potential investors in a bond offering by the same company as massively price sensitive, and adverse, information was withheld in 2018.  It is now clear that the company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord David Willetts, has misled or actively lied to investors on a serial basis every year since its August 2017 IPO and on a broad range of price sensitive matters. I have proved 5 major cases of lying. But there may well be more and I have thus written to regulators urging them to suspend trading in the shares until they can independently verify the accuracy or otherwise of all statements made by this company.

The need for AIM Regulation to suspend these shares pending an independent investigation into every claim Verditek has ever made since the repeated nature of its deceptions is now just too great to ignore.

My curate’s egg of slam-dunk sells for 2020 continues its strange performance. On the one hand, Walcom (WALG) has disappeared from view – a zero – and on the other we have two total POS at silly prices because the market is, in my view, just totally mad.

DEVASTATING WINNILEAKS EXPOSE: Verditek and Project Black – proof of active lying to investors ahead of a placing

Published 440 days ago

Last week I exposed how Verditek (VDTK) had misled investors in three placings by NOT informing them that previously announced contracts had not gone ahead and on Tuesday the company fessed up to this. But misleading by omission ahead of a placing is one thing. Actively lying is far worse and thanks to Winnileaks I can now demonstrate that Verditek has done that not once but at least twice.

Yu Group – appoints fraudsters' favourite SP Angel as Nomad/Broker……guess what comes next

Published 441 days ago

Yet another Red Flag was hoisted above AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) Towers this morning as it announced its pleasure at appointing SP Angel as Nomad/Broker. Whilst I have little time for any Nomad, surely ex-appointee Shore Capital carried a little more gravitas than the Nomad to Versarian (VRS) and Eurasia Mining (EUA) not to mentiuon the MySquar )MYSQ) fraud where it turned a blind eye to crime, and SP Angel’s broker side has been hit with the scandal at Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). But did Shore Capital walk, or was it pushed?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: BREAKING, the first member of the Quindell crime gang to face legal action - it should be this week

Published 443 days ago

A source who is 100% reliable tells me that the first member of the Quindell crime gang to face legal consequences will discover the good news this week. I shall keep you posted but I am in the right place to secure barrels of ouzo with which to celebrate. Elsewhere, I discuss Eqtec (ETQ) and why an eminent poster on our comments section is wrong to give it a clean bill of heath regarding its fraud. I debate valuing stocks in relation to NAV with respect to mining stocks and investment companies and I explain why it is different. I look at Cineworld (CINE) and bid rumours, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and lunacy, and at the atrocious results from Versarien (VRS) and its startling admission re its illegal taxpayer loan. I also discuss why I am not panicking on gold and the gold shares I own.

Letter to FCA: Zenith wholesale breach of disclosure rules and securities fraud

Published 444 days ago

Zenith Energy (ZEN) is quoted on the Standard List, so the regulator in charge is the FCA. The FCA is also responsible for policing all cases of fraud among listed companies. So, after today’s shocking fess up as a result of my bombshell of last Thursday, I have dropped the chocolate teapots a note about events since June 4 demanding an urgent enquiry and the suspension of the shares.

Yu Group – Now AIM Regulation says F*** YU!

Published 444 days ago

AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) has this morning updated on the investigation by AIM Regulation into the shambolic mis-reporting of profits/receivables etc which saw the company write off c. £10 million from its 2018 accounts. The result? A £300,000 fine – surely far too light – which has been waived for co-operating with the enquiry! The lesson from AIM Regulation for less than scrupulous AIM Directors is that fraud is no problem – just get on with it and we’ll do nothing at all. There is no moral hazard.

Zenith admits it doesn’t own its main asset, it clearly deceived investors and now it smears Tom Winnifrith.

Published 444 days ago

Anyone who checked out the track record of the once self-styled  “King of Socks” Count Andrea Cattaneo della Volta, would never have invested in Zenith Energy (ZEN). This is a man who trousered vast sums from Pex, a Leicester sock maker, before shutting up shop in the UK leaving workers owed huge unpaid wages.  Last week I published a letter appearing to show that Zenith had lost its main asset, the Tilapia field in the Republic of Congo. Today, a bombshell…..

Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation: Suspend Verditek PLC NOW before more securities fraud committed

Published 445 days ago

Maybe having a Tory grandee, Lord Willetts, as your chairman means that you are allowed to commit securities fraud with impunity on the AIM Casino? As I exposed yesterday HERE, that is most certainly what Verditek (VDTK) has been up to. Given that it is currently technically insolvent and its shares are being ramped on an industrial scale by disgraced tipster Mike Walters of 3DM, Polly Peck, Minmet, etc etc infamy and others, another placing must be imminent. I have today written to the Chocolate Teapots at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking it to try to, for once, stop fraud.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: into battle with Old Mother Walters again as Mike bats - once more - for a company with no sales and which tells lies

I start with reflections on how Boris is begging companies to get the workers back to doing a shift at the office. Sory BoJo but in this mess of your own creation you are dreaming. Then it is onto our major expose of securities fraud at Verditek (VDTK) today, where it seems that Old Mother Walters is again batting for the company with a bonkers market cap, no sales, which lies to investors, and which is technically insolvent. What’s not to like? Oh yes and the company’s chairman is a former Tory MP. More red flags than at the May Day rally in Moscow.

Richard Jennings of Align defends his bonkers valuation of BlueBird Merchant Ventures

Published 446 days ago

I have shares in Bluebird (BMV) and think that at 4.25p they are cheap. They should, IMHO, be trading at 6p and might get into double figures if it can resolve issues with its Aussie, soon to be ex, partners in Korea. But a 34.79p target price, a 69p DCF valuation, is insane as I explained in detail in bearcast yesterday HERE. But that is the target price of Align Research, which owns almost 4% of the shares, and its boss Richard Jennings wants to defend that viewpoint and being a fair man I allow him to do so.

Then at the accounts from troubled broker Novum which came out yesterday. They are truly shocking and get a full debagging from me. I comment on Hammerson (HMSO) and illusory asset values and on Simec Atlantic (SAE) and – en passant – Hurricane Energy (HUR).

Coronavirus spoof of the day? Versarien is on the bandwagon, what it doesn't say tells you all

Published 451 days ago

To put this in context, even morally bankrupt Nomad SP Angel, the Nomad of choice for fraudsters, does not think this news is financially significant and so has forced ramping Neill Ricketts to alert his moronic investors via an RNS reach not an RNS.  Natch, folks who think it’s okay to murder journalists don’t care about facts so Versarien (VRS) shares are up 12% at 46p – an £8 million increase in market cap on news that even the Nomad thinks is financially irrelevant!

Supply@ME – Remembering the fraud Quindell and Equities First: Is this a carbon copy?

Published 454 days ago

It was back in 2014 that ShareProphets nailed Rob Terry and his sidekicks after they did a stock loan with Equities First which turned out to be a discounted outright sale with an optional buyback clause, and spent a tiny proportion of the proceeds on buying a handful of extra Quindell shares. Of course, the transaction was presented to the market as them buying more stock when in fact they were selling vast quantities of shares – the killer punch being that those Equities First deals were non-recourse.

They are worth 0p. So who is to blame for the losses suffered by morons like @Aimfatgreek who takes to twitter? Er…. you will never guess. Or maybe you have seen this play out before.

The continuing suspension of Eurasia Mining (EUA) makes no sense at all, at least not without another statement from the company on why it is still suspended.

Say what you like about AIM dog Angus Energy (ANGS) but it has provided us all with a colourful cast of characters during its short and inglorious history on the AIM Casino.  Right now, the man at the helm is Lord Lucan but how lucky does he feel in having as his non-executive chairman, a fellow Irish aristocrat Paddy Clanwilliam. Paddy also sits on the audit committee and is paid £68,000 a year for his sterling efforts.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Today I laugh with, not at, Zak Mir

Published 544 days ago

I start with a few reflections on recordings I am doing and how lucky I am. there have been a lot of laughs so far today and to his credit the Sith Lord Zak Mir is quite funny. Anyhow, this is all for the Shareprophets Shares Conference where the 70 hours of video content really is, and I say so myself, of a very high quality. If you like bearcast, You really will enjoy what I am producing so book your tickets now HERE. In today's podcast I discuss the latest misguided thoughts of the one global star of the investment world not speaking next Saturday, I refer, of course, to Roger Lawson of ShareSoc, on regulation in the wake of the latest NMC (NMC) news. I then look ata clear failing where the FCA needs to act fast, Akazoo and the role of Tosca Fund. I am on the warpath.

Ouzo for Gabriel Grego & Tom Winnifrith as Akazoo (InternetQ as was) admits its a fraud - Martin Hughes at Tosca, I'm coming for you!

Published 544 days ago

Back in 2015 I demonstrated, without any doubt, that AIM listed InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud. I doorstepped it in Athens. I crawled all over its bogus websites in Greece.  The Greek management and fund manager Martin Hughes of Tosca - a shareholder PA as well as via his fund - responded by taking it private. They then rebranded it as Akazoo and listed it on Nasdaq, Earlier this week Gabriel Grego again exposed it as a fraud. On Friday, the shares were suspended, the CEO fired and investors warned that ALL historic financials may be fiction. The SEC filing below is damning.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - as I prepare a major presentation and celebrate the latest Bidstack triumph I ask what is a fraud?

Published 548 days ago

I am doing a number of presentations at the Shareprophets Shares show but a major one will be on what makes a fraud. I will draw on a number of companies, some now in tita up alley others like Bidstack (BIDS) still listed. It will be a stonker and yet another reason to book your ticket now for the ShareProphets shares show on May 9 HERE. In today's podcast I consider the Motley Crew that is Watchstone (WTG) - Quindell as was - Bidstack (BIDS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Scancell (SCLP) and IQE (IQE)

Good news: Watchstone PLC off the hook for the Quindell fraud, great news Rob Terry et al are not!

Published 548 days ago

Companies do not commit fraud, individuals commit fraud. Almost invariably in recent years this has been forgotten. Banks break the rules almost no-one is prosecuted and the banks pay a fine which hurts shareholders a bit but is regarded by the corporate as just another cost of doing business. But why should shareholders pay when they have probably suffered a direct pocket book hit from the fraud anyway? This brings us to Watchstone (WTG), the company once known as Quindell (QPP), a £3 billion fraud which I did so much to expose, getting two lawyers letters, a dedicated put-down company blog and numerous other dirty tricks against me for my efforts. Sound familiar Bidstack (BIDS) morons?

BREAKING: New explosive Gabriel Grego dossier - Akazoo, InternetQ as was, is a total Norfolk, has to be a zero!

The latest dossier from Gabriel Grego is damning. I believe he has spotted a nailed down fraud that will go to zero. Grego is presenting in New York this afternoon - and of course at the ShareProphets show on May 9 -  but the dossier is below. We are mentioned at the front of Grego's dossier for exposing this as a fraud four years ago when it was known as InternetQ (INTQ) - as you can see HERE - . Our work saw the company delisted from AIM with management and Martin Hughes of Tosca Fund taking it private. They then renamed it Akazoo and relisted it in the US. Gabriel shows the company is still a total fraud. Enjoy. 

The Corrupt Deadwood Press: The Sunday Times on NMC and backing Easyjet’s board

The way it blew off Neil Woodford in return for “scoops" and again and again backs boards, who by dint of underperformance, are quite rightly under fire with dirty attacks on their critics is shameful. Babcock (BAB) is a case in point. Today the paper shows its true colours again with its coverage of NMC Health (NMC) and more especially, and shamefully, of EasyJet (EZJ).

Readers will know that I am a gold bull and think it is a dead cert to go up in the current crisis as governments spend money they haven’t got and central banks roll out the printing presses. Also noticeable is the lack of physical gold supply in the US which has already forced COMEX to change the contract details to allow delivery in London as opposed to New York – a bit of a problem, given that there are no flights to put it on! But why are Gold Futures in June trading $50 above the spot price?

Ouzo Time as Finablr shares are suspended in yet another not-fit-for-purpose FCA shambles. P45 for Andrew Bailey

Published 591 days ago

You were warned and warned and warned again here on ShareProphets to get out of fully-listed Finablr (FIN) as it became clear to us that it was facing the same problems as NMC Health (NMC) which is already surely a zero and with which it shared much of the same senior management (until it was fired by NMC) and where accusations of fraud and theft now abound. Quite why the shares were not suspended weeks ago is a matter for our useless and not-fit-for-purpose FCA which, after all, is supposed to protect investors. This morning the shares were suspended, the CEO has walked, dodgy cheques have turned up and the company’s financial position is unclear (for that, read a zero for shareholders). It would be a mind-bending shock if it had not been so predictable, and it is a calamity.

As a reminder, Dev did a placing on December 20 2019 and its CEO sold £500,000 shares a month later only to admit in February that sales for the six months to 31 October 2019 were way below forecast. How can a software firm have not had any inkling of that before the placing and CEO share dump. It defies belief. The FCA writes:

Is it Better To be Short A Stock Promotion Or A Total Fraud?

Published 609 days ago

As someone who occasionally shorts companies, particularly on AIM, my goal is to find companies which are total  frauds and so their shares ultimately prove worthless and I get 100% profit. However, I also like to short what I term "stock promotions", where management and/or shareholders have used various methods to get the stock to levels which are impossible to justify. On AIM, a stock promotion can take companies which are essentially worthless to a value of several hundred million pounds, depending on the story being spun.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Common misconceptions about fraud & will Neill Ricketts do a podcast with me?

Published 610 days ago

A start with a few more thoughts about yesterday's dire warning from Versarien (VRS), going on to say why the FCA should now get involved. I explain 2 scenarios which might lead to the company going bust within weeks rather than suffering a slow death and I challenge its boss Neill Ricketts to record a podcast with me. Then, following an exchange on the comments section last night about the frauds One True View and Appbox Media I discuss common misconcepions about fraud.

Letter to AIM Regulation: After latest Versarien revelation, share dumping Neill Ricketts not fit to be PLC director, please act now

Published 610 days ago

I am not saying that Versarien (VRS) should be slung off the AIM Casino although it is a worthless POS heading rapidly for a cash crisis as it, again, runs out of other people’s money. However, the latest expose about the antics of its CEO Neill Ricketts makes it abundantly clear that he is not fit to run a listed PLC. Since Nomad SP Angel of MySquar infamy will act for any old fraud and does not care I have written to AIM Regulation, which yesterday- after communications from me – forced the company into a fourth fess up RNS in a little over a month - asking that it force him to stand down from the Versarien board.

Hey morons do you now realise that it does not matter how much you troll me, call me a peadophile or harass my wife at work it will not save you from my hard analysis, investigative journalism and from the reality that you have backed a wong 'un?. Versarien (VRS) has been forced to come partially clean and the news is utterly terrible. Even morally bankrupt PR firm Yellow Jersey - which spun for Frontera (FRR) AFTER I showed it was a fraud - cannot polish this turd. I also look at Tertiary Minerals (TYM) and Botswana Diamonds (BOD) and have a Welsh Hovel flood update.

Tom Winnifrith Photo Bearcast: the flood waters are rising once again, now 2 yards from the Welsh Hovel

I start with the rising flood waters here at the Welsh Hovel, which are now about two or three yards from the bottom step leading to the back door. Then it is onto Coronavirus, where it is starting to sink in as to how bad it could be in terms of fear and our behaviour if not actual deaths. Then onto what filing management accounts means and the question of possible securities fraud at Dev Clever (DEV), which I have flagged up with the FCA today. Then, as per the screenshot below, it is the changing behaviour of Neill Ricketts at Versarien (VRS) and what that tells us about the regulatory hole he is in and why Canaccord quit as Nomad. Finally a comment on Bahamas Petroleum (BPC), its piss poor death spiral and crazy valuation.

Letter to FCA – has Dev Clever committed blatant Securities Fraud, please investigate now!

Published 612 days ago

As Dev Clever (DEV) is not on AIM but on the Official List it is the FCA that bears sole responsibility for regulating its activities and which should now be investigating whether the company has committed blatant securities fraud. I have written to the chocolate teapots explaining why an urgent investigation is needed into the company and its directors.

I pass on a rumour about Zenith Energy (ZEN) which, if true, will rapidly accelerate its already inevitable demise and I explain why directors of Dev Clever (DEV) should be in jail.

This really is today's bearcast despite my introduction. Thanks for the kind messages about the flooding, the waters are now recedng fast. In today's podcast I look at China and the Coronavirus and ask WHEN IQE (OQE) will warn and if that will force a discounted placing. Methinks it will. I then look at the rioles of brokers (does research mean anything)? and Nomads (rules on quitting) in general and specifically in relation to Versarien (FRAUD). Then I discussa crazed TW hater and Optibiotix (OPTI) and how ultimately all comment on a company cannot determine its real value.

As I write, ahead of the market open, it is still – with the shares at 49p – valued at c£70 million. Given that its core graphene business generated sales of just £27,000 last year and that the cash guzzling PLC is fast running out of cash, I am sure you’d agree the valuation is bonkers.

Having sent a missive to AIM Regulation yesterday concerning AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) and its Trading Update which appeared to admit to contravention of AIM Rule 11, the company issued a clarification RNS which appeared to me to completely contradict the original one, and both were signed off by Nomad Arden Partners under the watchful eye of the fine upstanding Mr Paul Shackleton, of China-fraud Naibu (NBU) and Daniel Stewart infamy. Call me old-fashioned, but the two statements appear to me to be impossibly contradictory – and that brings me to AIM Rule 10. Thus I have written again to AIM Regulation.

FREE Podcast: ShareProphets Radio Edition NINETEEN with Tom Winnifrith on how housebuilders can collapse, the three top AIM overpromotes and the Appbox scam

Published 694 days ago

There are no guests in this week's show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me and I start with the idea of it's too good to be true at Intu (INTU) and that leads me on to look in some detail at the compelling bear case against all the housebuilders and what that means for other sectors and for you and me. Then I look at the 3 most overpromoted stocks on AIM, Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS) and AFC Energy (AFC), the common themes and why shares in all three will eventually collapse. But there is a warning for the bears too. Then it is onto the up to £15 million Appbox Media, One True View scandal I exposed this week HERE. If you like this and can't wait seven days for more of the same and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.

Top 50 most-read articles and podcasts on the Quindell fraud - this is going to get very topical again soon

Published 703 days ago

A couple of conversations last week make me convinced that the day when the SFO brings the Quindell (QPP) fraudsters to book for what was a £3 billion con is not that long away. We know that the fraudster in chief, Rob Terry, emerged terrified from his second interview with the SFO in July, as I revealed HERE, and that the SFO has been on the case for almost six years. I believe the wheels of justice are finally starting to turn and in that vein bring you a reminder of our 50 most read articles and listened to podcasts on AIM's biggest ever fraud. I should also say that new documents have fallen into my possession that the authorities do not yet have. They will get them this week AFTER I publish them here as they are explosive. Meanwhile back to the top 50. Enjoy!

One of the most important disciplines in this game is knowing when to do nothing and until the UK election is out of the way I think it is wise to stay on the sidelines. My political predictive skills are far from perfect and while Johnson is fortunate to have Corbyn as an opponent and ought to gain an overall majority, which would almost certainly trigger a rally in sterling and the beaten up UK-based companies, I am happy to wait for the result before acting. The gulf between left and right both here and in the US is so huge that the idea that decent companies will prosper whatever the political outcome no longer holds good. As for the short side, as is usual at the tail end of a long bull market, the market is extremely tolerant of frauds and over-promotions which is extremely frustrating for bears...

Then it is onto how Ed Croft of Stockopedia, the company that flagged up mega fraud Quindell as one of the top 10 AIM stocks to buy, is claiming to have "predicted" the Neil Woodford scandal. Of course it did not but no doubt this persuades more folks to sign up to Ed's flawed system.  Then I crow as I discuss Nanoco (NANO) which I called out as long ago as 2015 and discuss where next for Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) as its open offer flops.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will the FCA investigate whether a Dubai Royal Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum, is guilty of AIM casino insider dealing

Published 796 days ago

This looks like a doddle to investigate. The stock is ADM Energy (ADME) but will the FCA dare to challenge Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum or is insider dealing just an offence of you are a nobody? Then I look at the Eddie Stobart (ESL) fraud debacle, the Industrial Heat shambles, Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), the  Equity Income Fund (which has  today insisted it will look to ungate at Christmas... whatever) the Income Focus Fund (soon to be gated) and what today's news says about the stupidity, arrogance and lack of ethics of Neil Woodford himself. Postscript: His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmook bin Juma Al Maktoum is not to be confused with Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Emirates and indeed a very wealthy man. I did confuse him but this is still a Dubai Royal, will the FCA take him on? 

Why Roger Lawson’s gagging proposals would be a disaster for AIM – Tim Baldwin & TXO case study

Published 796 days ago

As you know, Roger Lawson of ShareSoc wants to clean up AIM by, inter alia, forcing websites such as this to remove any article which a company deems defamatory merely on demand, in the way that Bulletin Boards already do. Lawson does not say who would judge when an artiocle could be republished but the implication is that it would be the new regulator he proposes. The case study which shows what utter folly this idea represents is Tim Baldwin and TXO.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast for Roger Lawson: your post Burford proposals are largely unwise & would be, largely, counter productive

Published 799 days ago

In the wake of the Muddy waters attack on Burford (BUR) Roger Lawson of ShareSoc has published a detailed set of proposals to tackle what he sees as a big problem as you can see HERE. He makes a couple of suggestions which we can agree on as being utterly sensible. But he fails to grasp that existing laws can deal with other issues, the problem is that they are never implemented. He goes on to make a number of proposals which are naive and would gag websites like this in the extremis making London markets, already a great place for fraudsters and shameless promoters to do business, even more friendly for such folks. They would be a disaster as I explain in detail.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. So the Muddy Waters report was indeed about AIM-listed Burford Capital which duly crashed by 46% yesterday, to add to the 19% drop on Tuesday, and Neil Woodford’s second biggest stock pick is…er….no longer his second biggest investment. I rather doubt it is in his top ten now. The press, as predicted, has been baying for blood and the queues of gated Woodford Equity Income Fund investors looking to get their money back before any more of it just disappears into thin air will be lengthening. So let’s take a look at the effect of the Burford collapse on the Woodford empire.

IQE – In the dock as the Equities First scandal re-emerges with an incomplete and therefore misleading statement

Published 814 days ago

We have not heard from Equities First Holdings (EFH) for a while, but regular ShareProphets readers may remember the scandal which emerged five years ago whereby directors of AIM companies announced they were buying shares when, if fact, they were selling vast numbers of them to EFH with the right, but not the obligation, to buy them back. Such fine enterprises as Rob Terry fraud Quindell (QPP – now Watchstone), Igas (IGAS, under Andrew “piggy” Austin), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Angle (AGL), Optimal Payments (OPP) and, of course, IQE (IQE) were all dragged in. Well now Drew Nelson, CEO of IQE has done another deal with EFH – and the announcement stinks. Has the company learned nothing from last time, when all of the above companies had to restate and restate again?

I wrote back in March that his employment demonstrated a huge lack of judgement by CEO Neill Ricketts – as did the failure to disclose the matter at the time. That he should be fired so soon (eight days) after publicly standing by him a second time after further charges were revealed compounds the sense of management incompetence...

I don't - but I saw that they literally occupy the old office space of my last business there. If that's not a reason to run another one, I don't know what is.

Winnileaks Special: explosive Singapore Court Docs - MySquar boss Eric Schaer a liar and guilty of theft and fraud

Published 899 days ago

I demonstrated clearly that AIM listed MySquar (MYSQ) was a fraud, founded and run by a lying fraudster Eric Schaer way before it finally folded. The great and the good at AIM Regulation and Nomad SP Angel did nothing about it despite explicit warnings Self important PR fucktard Piers Pottinger stayed on as chairman, standing by his man and ignoring me. PR spawn of Satan Damian McCrystal banked his cheques and carried on spinning. The fraudsters fave journalist  (and ADVFN blogger of the year) Ben Harrington ran bogus stories in the Sunday Papers to get bailout placings away. No-one cared about the lies Schaer told. You guys are the establishment and it is far simpler to bank fat salaries and dismiss me as failed fund manager, pizza restaurant employee, yak, yak yak. Well gents you, 1% er bastards who are complicit in a transfer of welath from the many (shareholders) to the few (yourselves), please now read the Singapore Court Documents below branding Schaer a liar, a thief and a fraud.

DEADLINE MIDNIGHT TODAY: Bulletin Board Moron of the Week Contest in honour of the Frontera fraud - can you beat this one?

Published 999 days ago

The AIM demise of the fraud Frontera (FRR) has unleashed a barrage of Bulletin Board idiocy not seen for years.

You will remember that Independent owes more than £30 million to unquoted London Oil & Gas. That money has to start being repaid within a few months and Independent will go bust unless London provides more funds. But London has borrowed money from LCF a related party firm subject to a full blown FCA raid as it is a ponzi fraud as we showed here yesterday. That cash is repayable on demand. Now read on....

Gamfook in NEX-China flotation: Red Flag central, keep well away!

I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry at the flotation of Gamfook (GAMF) on the NEX lobster pot on Christmas Eve. Was it an elaborate April Fool, carried out in December to fool us all? I’ve no idea. But the Red Flags are everywhere to see. For starters, it is a Chinese jewellery play with one of its main outposts to be found in Fujian Province (which, I gather, is called Fooking in another Chinese dialect). And the Broker is that fine house of AIM-China frauds, Daniel Stewart – the former Nomad and former resident of the AIM Casino. What’s not to like?

On Monday I wondered out loud what was happening about the forensic investigation into various accounting matters – including accrued income recognition and impairment of trade debtors at Yu Group (YU.). Then there was the small matter of a £12 million placing on the back of FY17 accounts which now appear to be somewhat questionable. Well blow me down with a feather: now the FCA has notified the company that it intends to conduct an investigation and the shares (which I called a bargepole of the highest order on the initial ‘fessing up of 24th October) have now fallen below half of the IPO price of March 2016.

You may remember Joshua Adams? Aged 28 he wrote to me to say that he “prayed for my destruction”. Wind forward five years and, playing with Daddy’’s money, he amassed a stake of 16% in the MySquar (MYSQ) fraud. Now looking at both Companies house and the RNS feed I worry that young Joshua may have been a very naughty boy indeed and I have asked the FCA to investigate him accordingly. But fear not Josh, I am a nice guy and will be praying for your salvation as I kneel at the bedside tonight.

Marcus Stuttard, the world's worst regulator receives evidence of fraud at MySquar caption contest

Published 1087 days ago

In October last year I presented thje AIM Regulation team headed by the man who ludicrously allowed himself to be dubbed the Sheriff of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard with slam dunk proof of massive fraud at MySquar (MYSQ). He did nothing. MySquar raised millions of pounds AFTER that from issuing shares which after today are now worthless as the fraud is laid bare. Mr Stuttard's failure to act has cost investors millions. And this is not his first lamentable failure. Is he the most useless regulator on this planet? Anyhow, he is pictured below after receiving my proof of fraud at MySquar last October. Please supply a suitable caption by midnight tonight in the comments section below.

Oh dear. Oh Dear. I pointed out that MySquar (MYSQ) had lied and committed fraud numerous times – notably with the 31 July 2017 placing – but Nomad SP Angel was happy to turn a blind eye and bank its retainers. Marcus Stuttard and the keystone cops at AIM Regulation were given specific warnings but did nothing. Now the whole thing has blown up so who looks like a frigging clown now Marcus? Is it Tom Winnifrith, the real Sheriff of AIM, or Marcus Stuttard, a man who is meant to regulate but instead turns a blind eye to blatant fraud, a useless not fit for purpose fucking poltroon?

Neil Woodford - where, oh where are the Immunocore accounts for FY17?

Published 1089 days ago

Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) held, as at 30 September, 4.95% of its gross funds in unlisted healthcare stock Immumocore. I say gross funds because WPCT has taken on rather a lot of debt over the last while – presumably because Woodford ran out of cash and still had too many hungry mouths to feed. If the entire portfolio goes a load higher then of course being leveraged is a good thing. Unfortunately, it is a bad thing if the portfolio keeps of falling in value.

I look at Frontera (FRR) and its looming bailout placing, at Ascent Resources (AST) and at Rainbow Rare Earths (RBW). I also discuss the market sell off commending a reader who notes both my genius and my modesty on this matter.

The fraud MySquar gets bailout placing away at just 0.35p – the end is nigh

Published 1094 days ago

Back in July 2017 MySquar (MYSQ) misled investors massively about its current trading and thus committed blatant securities fraud in raising £1.2 million  at 3.75p. It stated then that it “does not expect to require additional funds for current operations.” That was a lie. Since then it has raised millions via death spiral funding but with liquidity drying up and the share price tanking it has now raised just £600,000 gross at a pathetic 0.35p. Ouch. It gets worse.

AIM Focus: Broker and Tipster Sentiment

Published 1111 days ago

It’s been an eventful week on AIM. Patisserie Holdings’ (CAKE) announcement of “significant, and potential fraudulent, accounting irregularities” on Wednesday blindsided the investment community. Urals Energy (UEN) is comparatively smaller, but the company’s discovery of an unauthorised loan made with its funds – meaning the firms “working capital position will be significantly constrained” – brought some more unwanted bad press; UEN shares slid 31.3% since the announcement.

My long term bearishness about TrakM8 (TRAK) a company that issues misleading RNS’s, makes ludicrous acquisitions as it racks up its debts and never translates profits (a matter of opinion) into cash (a matter of fact, unless you are an AIM China fraud) is well documented here.  Of course,  Thirsty Paul Scott had cosy chats with the management and knew better than a "nutcase of the first order". Today the shares have tanked to a new multi year low after another dire statement.

Elon Musk's biggest fan in Greece updates his facebook page - crime does pay for Costis the Globo fraudster

Published 1144 days ago

Elon Musk might be forgiven for thinking that few in the business community still love him. But he does have fans. Step forward Costis Papadimitrakopoulos the founder and CEO of Globo (GBO) which raised tens of millions of dollars in debt and via issuing shares on AIM and claimed to have net cash but er... did not. It was a fraud and Costis took stacks of that cash and also sold all his shares before the balloon went up after being tipped off by snot gobbler Dan McCrum of the FT. Anyhow Costis has been busy on facebook updating his profile last month as you can see below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast; The fraudsters face lapdog journalist Harrington is at it again & the definition of stupidity

Published 1145 days ago

Ben Harrington has another tale about Telit (TCM). Truly the fraudsters favourite journalist is a stain on an entire profession. So what to read into this latest Jackanory? Meanwhile some of those attacking me on twitter, after a Steve Holdsworth tweet in support, display almost the classic definition of stupidity. They will, I fear, remain in social housing with this approach. I also discuss Boris, shagging and nasty smears by wretched Theresa May.

Cometh the day, cometh the man: we call on king fraudster Sam Antar to save Tesla and become its new CFO

A great American company is in trouble and there is only one man who can save it. Today we launch a campaign to draft in Sam Antar as the new CFO of Tesla and if you are on twitter here’s how you can help.

Quite simply Serra is a fool and a prick. Natch he has bought up 5% of Telit (TCM), the company founded by the US mortgage fraudster and fugitive from justice Oozi cats, nee Uzi Katz.

A Letter to Marcus Stuttard and AIM Regulation – suspend Andalas now and stop the bailout placing

Published 1152 days ago

Almost out of cash, Andalas Energy (ADL) is gearing up for a bucket shop placing c/o joint bucket shop brokers Novum Securities & Optiva in the usual way: a ramptastic podcast with PR genius Steffi, 2 ramptastic RNS announcements and a ramptastic paid for podcast with Vox.  The trouble is that its claims have now been directly contradicted by its partner in the North Sea Badger field, Atlantic Petroleum (see HERE). If it turns out that Andalas was making unverifiable fantasy claims, as it appears, and raises money at an artificial price on the back of that, this would be a clear case of Securities fraud. In order to stop that the shares must be suspended at once pending a statement.  I have written to the fake Sheriff of AIM, Marcus Stuttard at AIM Regulation as you can see below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the mounting Andalas Badger scandal, a real test case for the AIM Casino

In this podcast I explain why all involved should be concerned that they are not party to Securities fraud, notably Nomad Beaumont Cornish and broker Novum Securities - home to scallywag Gavin Burnell of Globo (GBO) infamy. This is a real test case for the integrity of the AIM Casino and I explain why.

A Letter to AIM Regulation: Is SP Angel fit and proper to act as a Nomad (and should the FCA investigate it as well)

Published 1162 days ago

Enough is enough. Yesterday John Meyer, a senior manager and large shareholder in SP Angel went onto Justin the Clown’s podcast to ramp corporate stocks such as Blue Jay Mining (JAY) without declaring an interest – his employer earns vast fees from Blue Jay as its Nomad and broker. But this is the least of SP Angel’s crimes and I wonder if its conduct over Blue Jay and MySquar (MYSQ) is, if not blatant market abuse, simply bringing the AIM Casino into disrepute. I have written to Marcus Stuttard, the head of AIM Regulation, demanding an immediate investigation into whether SP Angel should retain its Nomad license.

Julie Meyer - her new flagship - its also insolvent surely - new Companies House Filing

With former flagship Ariadne Capital Limited in administration and Julie "Lingerie on expenses" Meyer facing serious questions about that, Vince Cable's fave entrepreneur has to find a new flagship to stand behind her joke annual conference, this year to be held, to the dismay of local regulators, in Croatia. It would have been Ariadne Capital Group Limited of Malta but what with it facing regulatory probes, having no cash and with the criminal charges against Meyer in Malta that is perhaps not suitable. So Meyer has suggested her new flagship is Viva Capital LLP, formerly the company that booked her speaking fees. Problemo!

Tern – “Updated Director Information” = WE LIED

Published 1176 days ago

Another day and another shocking disclosure from AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN). Yesterday, at 3.10pm, after releasing details of two director buys which were trivial and showed Tuesday’s news of Device Authority’s elevation to “2018 Emerging Star” to be just a ramp (or insider trading by the chairman, take your pick!) we were told that disclosures in relation to two directors of the company had not been entirely truthful: the published directorships of the two had omitted not just the odd one which might have slipped the mind. No, it was TEN!! More to the point, it was ten insolvencies which should have been declared when they were appointed – and a further two which should have been disclosed after appointment.

Shares in AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN) are down sharply this morning by 20% (last seen) on a clarification from the company regarding its principle investee Device Authority. In short, forecasts were, shall we say, a tad optimistic. That, in the wake of a placing at 26p. Perhaps some kind person can explain why that might not amount to securities fraud, for as a humble non-lawyer all I can say is it stinks.

Globo – Grant Thornton is not off the hook despite the FRC dropping investigation

Now the Financial Reporting Council says that it is letting auditor Grant Thornton off the hook and dropping its enquiry.

At the last AGM of Naibu (NBU) before it was booted off the AIM casino I attended its AGM, held at the offices of its Nomad Daniel Stewart, and accused the company of fraud.  Only the NEDs were present - Chinese executive directors failed to show. As I asked about a loan to the CEO’s mum that had not been repaid, the NEDs said they were unaware of this.  I pointed out where the loan was referenced in the annual report and the NEDs said they would go away and investigate. They did not. Only when they stopped getting paid did these useless upper class twits start to ask questions. Wind forward to today and it is time to shift the blame.

It gets worse.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: naughty, naughty Jim Mellon, I WAS watching at no-one is watching O'clock

Published 1225 days ago

I start with the announcement late last night from FastFoward Innovations (FFWD) the overvalued investment company run by my good friend the offshore based asset stripper Mr Jim Mellon. I move on to the FRC dealing with Russell McBurnie the disgraced ex FD of RSM Tenon and discuss book cookers, fraudsters. Sam Antar theories and crime and punishment generally. I look at Akers Biosciences (AKR) where book cooking ahead of a placing is alleged, at Zenith (ZEN) and at LPA (LPA) where i would not bottom fish after today's warning for a variety of reasons. Then I note MySquar (FRAUD) is down to 1.15p and I ask John Meyer of SP Angel once more if he will act or is he happy to wash his hands and turn a blind eye to crime. Tonight is a 6 mile training walk and Joshua and I will do two miles this morning. With Gift aid my charity walk on July 28 has now raised almost £10,000. I explain exactly what that means to Woodlarks. If you have not donated, please chip in now with a tenner to get us over £10,000 HERE

I am still recovering from yesterday's 14 mile training walk for the Woodlarks 32 mile charity walk. Yesterday's trip did not go quite to plan and ended up being a tad longer than expected. I explain all HERE. If you enjoy my suffering I shall do a 20 mile walk next weekend so how about you spare a tenner and sponsor me HERE. In the podcast I ask very hard questions about the sacking of the CEO and FD at Cabot Energy (CAB), formerly Northern Petroleum. I think I know why the P45s and black bags were handed out but Cabot must come clean NOW. Same Nomad, different dog, more questions - MySquar (FRAUD). Then I look at Audioboom (BOOM) and Wishbone Gold (WSBN) where I am a long suffering shareholder. And I smile to myself as I remember watching Germany vs Argentina four years ago in Kambos HERE

Bombshell – emails sent to Winnileaks show Julie Meyer MBE lying and committing fraud to raise cash for ACE Fund

Published 1228 days ago

I have been contacted by a man persuaded by Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer MBE to invest £23,000 into her ACE Fund in September 2016. I have in my possession emails sent by Ms Meyer to the investor and it is clear that she told two very blatant lies and has defrauded him. I have urged the individual to take this matter straight to not only the FCA but also to the City of London Police as this is slam dunk fraud.

The members were all companies we had Red Flagged here on ShareProphets – but not to worry, because no action had been taken and investors were still free to lose (oops, sorry) invest their cash in those shares. It is some nine-ish months since I looked at this portfolio. I wonder what has changed?

Yesterday, in order to avoid a strike off at companies house Julie Meyer finally filed accounts for Ariadne Capital Entrepreneurs Investments Limited – that is to say accounts for calendar 2016! The accounts are fraudulent and there is a real question as to whether she should have been filing them at all – perhaps Andrew Duncan of administrators Leonard Curtis has a view. Let me explain.

I start by praising Ed Croft who despite all that I have said about him has donated £30 to my charity walk for Woodlarks. To those 90% of you listening who I have not insulted at all surely you can spare a tenner. We have now raised £6,263.16 (before gift aid), surely you can donate £10 HERE. Then I look at Martin Sorrell (ex WPP) and the hookers on expenses, Lord Browne of BP and the rent boy on expenses and natch I mention someone who put a sex toy and batteries and lots of lingerie on her expenses. Their crime is nothing to do with sex it is theft and I discuss that. Then it is onto Connect (CNCT) where I ponder its banking covenants and to Haydale Graphene (HAYD) where I wonder if the cash position is enough. Finally I explain to another J Meyer ( this time John not Julie, no relation) of SP Angel why the MySquar (MYSQ) fraud is HIS responsibility and what he needs to do ASAP

Of course you and I know that it went into administration in July 2016.

Shareholders in Lombard Risk Management (LRM) do not care – they got a 13p cash offer from Vermeg and have banked the cash. But now the low countries acquirer is hopping mad. It has fired Lombard’s CEO and FD announced widespread redundancies and stated that the Lombard team lied about their prospects so results for the year to March 31 2018 will be way below forecast. The statement is damning and begs big questions of many. Surely the Lombard bosses stand accused of fraud? Should not the FCA and SFO have a butcher's?

Finally the FCA Acts – Julie Meyer’s companies no longer UK Authorised

The Maltese FSA suspended the regulatory permissions of Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer's Maltese operations almost a month ago but the FCA – for some reason – authorised the old charlatan to continue conducting financial services operations via EU passporting. That was until very late last week. Now the FCA has acted and Meyer’s operations ( as you can see below) can no longer operate in this country either. So just how is she being allowed to continue to try and raise money for her fraudulent fund? This is not the end of the story.

In what has been the longest running bull market that I can remember, in which stocks have risen, pretty much in a straight line for over nine years, it has been hard for bears to witness the benign tolerance with which evidently flaky and fraudulent companies are treated by the investing community. In these times patience is required, and it is worthwhile preparing a watchlist of names that are likely to be the most vulnerable when the market finally rolls over. While this list should comprise for the most part those with over-leveraged balance sheets and questionable accounting practices, solid companies should not be discounted out of hand.

The populist policy agenda of the new coalition government in Italy would in any normal circumstances be enough to send markets into meltdown as the Five Star/League combo is planning a flat rate tax, a citizen’s allowance for the impoverished south, a general rolling back of pension reform, restoring the retirement age to 60, and the establishment of a parallel currency as a precursor to leaving the euro. Yet there has been no panic, last week yields on Government bonds barely changed, and the stock market actually went up. Markets are underestimating the risks, both to Italy and the continued integrity of the euro. Complacency in the face of all of this is a classic, late bull market condition.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - when a scam unravels... the 3xs are talking to me every day about Julie Meyer

Published 1265 days ago

The 3xs are the best friend of a fraudbuster or an investigative journalist and right now xs are lining up to me to chat about Julie Meyer. The Winnileaks service is buzzing. Julie's reign of terror over the xs is over. Away from that I comment on whether it is better to travel to arrive, the idea that UK Equities have only been this cheap during world wars - bollocks in the Telegraph - Interquest (ITQ) whose management are A grade a'holes and Westminster Group (ditto) where the issue is not where earnings will be in 4 years as our in-house BB loon Wildes suggests - but whether the company will be bust in 4 weeks.

SHOCKING Julie Meyer email - was she committing fraud as she tried to raise money for Ariadne

Published 1265 days ago

 Oh dear. Oh dear. Losing her Maltese regulatory license yesterday was bad enough for Julie Meyer MBE. Having the HMRC open an investigation on Thursday was also bad. And having Maltese magistrates blast her on Wednesday about her fleeing criminal charges was really bad.

Judge for yourself...

Gabriel Grego PROVES that the Folli Follie Rebuttal just does not wash - it is lying about POS numbers

Published 1267 days ago

With a little, acknowledged, help from yours truly, Gabriel Grego of Quintessential Capital Management has reviewed the list of 587 POS ( Points of Sale) claimed by Folli Follie on Monday and demonstrates cleary that it is way overstated. Any company caught with its pants down lying about something this basic is clearly engaged in fraud. The shares have recovered to 8.4 Euro but are worth ZERO. This is still free money as a short.  Gabriel writes:

Folli Folie, the Greek fraudsters, today attempted to refuse claims by Gabriel Grego that they were lying, inter alia, about store numbers and so in a release to the Athens Stock Exchange published a list of 587 stores.

Published 1270 days ago

Folli Follie (FF) the Greek luxury goods seller has denied the bombshell claims made in Gabriel Grego's devestating dossier we published on Thursday. I have today verified for myself that FF is lying about its British operations in a release to the Athens exchange today. So as far as I am concerned it is an open and shut fraud and a zero. But here ios Gabriel, the boss of Quintessential Asset Management (QCM)

Published 1271 days ago

Nick Trew, the CEO of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP) is currently attempting to fight off an EGM request to oust him and Toff Tory MP Sir Henry Bellingham of 3DM infamy from the board.

Nomad WH Ireland and AIM Regulation must investigate this at once.
