How I miss those days when the then boss of Rossyln Data (RDT) could not remember whether or not he was a former pornographer. His replacement, Paul Watts, might not be so colourful, but, like the ex-pornographer he still has the unpleasant task of trying to polish up regular turds of profits warnings.
In today’s podcast I cover Chill Brands (CHLL) and Guild E-Sports (GILD) as both prepare to publish results.I look at lessons learned, or rather not learned by the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, from Deepverge (DVRG) and I comment on Union Jack Oil (UJO), its disgraced boss David Bramhill and its inevitable cashburn.
As I explained in detail HERE, Gerry “the arse” Brandon and Deepverge breached AIM Rule 11 ahead of last June’s bailout placing. That AIM Regulation has allowed “the arse” Brandon to keep his job shows what a joke market the Casino is. For today, six months after that bailout placing at 30p, the shares are 20.25p, sliding and still monstrously overvalued. Had the Oxymorons publicly censured this company and Gerry the arse, investors might have got out before today’s shambles.
In a world where anyone gave a rat’s arse about the rules, ADM Energy (ADME) CEO Osamede Okhomina would already be doing a stretch for his offer to buy shares at 7p made last August after a conference call at which all participants were told by ADM’s chairman Oliver Andrews that they were insiders. I exposed that HERE but it seems nothing is happening. But now a more serious breach appears to have taken place.
I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation,led by the bogus Sheriff of AIM Marcus Stuttard, following two shock revelations on this website which should mean a 7 AM Monday Suspension of Trading in shares in ADM Energy (ADME) and a full enquiry into Nomad Cairn Financial & broker Ardern. The letter follows:
During the next 24 hours I shall be publishing a number of articles showing that AIM listed ADM Energy (ADME) has consistently misled investors as to the state of its finances while raising money in new placings. I shall look at where some of that cash went and who was aware of it, including former Tory MP Sir (now Lord) Henry Bellingham of the the 3DM fraud infamy who is a NED. At the end of the series you will be in no doubt that this company’s shares are utterly worthless and that those hawk like watchdogs at AIM Regulation, the folks fomerly referred to as the Oxymorons, should be swooping to feel collars both at ADM but also acting against its advisors. I start with a letter sent to the Winnileaks service which ADM received on 9 July 2021.
Let us be clear, Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL) is not on trial itself.But none the less this looming $300 million fraud trial is another red flag for this perennial AIM uber dog.
Back in last July I exposed AIM Wannabee Central Copper Resources. The team behind it had listed a company, Cradle Arc, on the AIM sewer in late 2018 which within a year saw its shares suspended pending clarification, engaged in tax evasion, traded while insolvent and deceived investors before going bust. Surely advisers and AIM Regulation would not allow such scallywags a second chance?
David (Dave) Bramhill of Union Jack Oil (UJO) put an interview into the public domain yesterday. While I am not a shareholder currently, I was most impressed. It is worthy of noting any CEO / Exec Chairman who acts with apparent and demonstrable honesty and openness and I wish many more would do so. He did not duck hard questions – far from it. I should say Tom disagrees with me viiolently and explains why HERE.
The top non-Tom article this week is Ariana – Oh No: Not More Good News! by Nigel Somerville, the Deputy Sheriff of AIM at number 11 or number 18 if you include the Bearcasts.
I set out below four reasons why Tintra’s (TNT) interim financial statements are not compliant with the requirements of IAS 34 for interim financial statements and why new interims are required. Do I expect Nomad Allenby or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do anything about black and white breaches of the rules? No. My faith in regulators or City advisors is at rock bottom. But just for the record:
I start with the two companies beginning with V and articles on this website today: Versarien (VRS) has responded, weakly to this expose. Vast Resources (VAST) cannot respond to this bombshell which exposes the cancer at the heart of AIM Regulation again and makes the shares uninvestable at any price. Then I look at Ben’s Creek (BEN), Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) on product launch day and at Central Copper where an IPO that should be pulled is delayed again.
I imagine that the moronic shareholders in Eurasia Mining (EUA) are lining up to buy me a drink after THIS LETTER yesterday to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation forced the company into a formal update on the bid situation today. No? You shock me. Bear raider Waseem Shakoor was clear of what he thought of the statement:
The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, led by the hapless poltroon Mr. Marcus Stuttard, the bogus Sheriff of AIM, like to claim that they have created the world’s most successful growth market. But the events of the past two years at Eurasia Mining (EUA) have shown that those who want to run rings around Marcus and the clowns who work for him don’t have to try too hard. I have written to Marcus and his colleagues about the farce at Eurasia and the supposed bid talks. Enough is enough. Will AIM Regulation force a statement? The answer to that one may involve myself and Ms Cheryl Cole.
Device Authority Limited states that it has filed abbreviated accounts because it qualifies as a small company which it is why it only files a balance sheet and selected notes. However, even based on the limited information provided we can see that AIM listed bag of puff Tern (TERN) is providing approximately 2/3rds of the current funding to Device Authority in terms of cumulative advances and accrued interest as shown below:
The journalist trolling arse of a CEO, that is Gerry Brandon of Deepverge (DVRG), has already been exposed by this website for breaching AIM Rule 11 and misleading investors ahead of his last bailout placing. But today comes news that such deception has happened before. Gerry, you are a very naughty boy indeed and if you had a shred of integrity you’d be quitting in disgrace right now.
And I fear that this will continue all week. I am pretty pissed off with Jaya’s nursery and thinking that I am in the wrong business. It looks an even better calling than cabbage picking. I cover two companies today: Ben’s Creek and the explicit challenge to and communication with the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and Falanx (FLX) where I am sure good news will be pissed away.
It has been three months and ten days since places in a £10 million offering at 30p from AIM listed Deepverge (DVRG) got their stock. At mid they are now 25% down with the shares at 22.5p. Folks who took part in the placing were misled by the company as to its trading position as it breached AIM Rule 11. I have again written to AIM Regulation demanding that formal action be taken. That letter is below. Meanwhile should punters hang on?
It should not be me contacting the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation about this it should be Nomad and broker Cenkos Securities and Primary Bid which raised money at 0.45p per share on August 19, putting their clients into this serial dog. Indeed, Lagos Securities should be considering whether, in light of today’s share suspension, it can continue to act as Nomad for Mercantile Ports and Logistics (MPL). I believe that should be resigning at once. I have written to the Oxymorons as you can see below.
Clearly Vast Resources (VAST) has misled investors of many years allowing the AIM fat cats who run this company to live the lifestyle at the expense of others. I flagged up one such shocker HERE. Fleet Street legend Brian Basham has tried to get the woke dullards at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do something but neither seem to care. His latest exchange of emails has fallen into my hands.
Two or three weeks ago I clambered off the fence and explicitly told you to short Eurasia Mining (EUA) at 28p. The shares are now 23.6p in the middle. So far so good for we bears but the company is still valued by the market, on a fully diluted basis as there are loads of in the money options, at well over £700 million which is insane. A placing announced yesterday is the cue to add to your shorts.
I have identified Tern (TERN) previously as a compelling short as nothing it says makes sense, the stated NAV is about 9p at best and the shares are 19.25p. But that NAV is bogus! The main component of NAV ,just over 50% is a holding in Device Authority but there is a bombshell out there Tern is not telling folks about. Device looks to be insolvent.
This should be an open and shut case and, if only pour encourager les autres, Deepverge PLC (DVRG), its Nomad SPARK Advisory and its journalist trolling arse of a CEO Gerry Brandon should be served up with a severe public censure. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation below.
The recent share price movement on Eurasia Mining (EUA) looks even more dodgy now in light of today’s announcement of a placing, and I would be surprised if there hasn’t been some forward selling going on.
Six out out the top 10 most-read articles this week were actually Bearcasts, unavailable to the freeloaders on this site which is a testament to the value that paid members put on the podcast. The top non-Tom article this week is Director Dealings, ref Ariana and Panther: follow them! by Nigel Somerville at number six or number 12 if you include the Bearcast and Tom’s new shareshow. I’m also quite pleased to see the Sunday Pub Quiz again crack the leaderboard. And it is good to see Tom “working classs hero” Winnifrith inject some good old fashioned class warfare into the top 10 HERE
After the MyHealthChecked (MHC) debacle of last week, I really do sit here wondering if anybody involved in London’s financial markets cares about the rules anymore. It is not as if anything ever happens to those who break them so why bother playing by them? Meet Mark Fry.
Earlier today, I broke the news that MyHealthChecked (MHC) where I am, of course, a loyal shareholder is now selling its covid tests via Lloyds Pharmacies. We do not know if it is just online or in any or all of the company’s 1400 stores but this is clearly material. MyHealthchecked has announced nothing. At one point earlier, the shares were up 38%. My job as a journalist is to break news which I did. I will not trade any shares until the company comes clean and probably not even then. The company’s duties under AIM listing rules include maintaining an orderly market in its shares. It has failed in that. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation demanding an enquiry and a statement.
Today’s scoop on MyHealthChecked (MHC) has moved the shares and looks like great news. But it might not be. What I have engaged in is not as one moron on ADVFN suggests “willy waving” or “ramping” but good journalism, that is to say breaking news someone does not want published. MyHealthChecked has broken AIM Rules and so created a disorderly market and though I own shed loads of shares, I must be consistent and report the company. AIM Regulation should be slapping someone’s wrists. I also comment on Helium One (HE1) and Verditek (VDTK).
This is massive. Lloyds has 1400 stores across the UK. And as you can see HERE, it is now selling the MyHealthChecked (MHC) covid test. Boots is selling the test from more than 500 stores and that deal plus sales from MyHealthChecked’s own portal managed to drive sales of c£3 million in May and June alone. So gaining this additional distribution (plus that from partnering with EasyJet) is surely highly material. Why no RNS?
It is only two weeks since Crowd For Angels, the world’s worst crowdfunding firm, closed its failed attempt to raise £500,000 for the serial liars at Verditek (VDTK) and now we get interims which tell you that, by Christmas, those fools lured by Richard “Gollum” Gill’s grotesquely misleading financial promotions into backing the bond will be at risk. These numbers are a disaster for the company led by Tory toff Lord Willetts. Insolvency beckons.
Brian Basham sent my most recent article on Vast Resources (VAST) to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation demanding it take action. Its risible response is below followed by another damning missive from the Fleet Street legend.
The top non-Tom article this week is Escape Hunt – John currently getting away with this ‘growth’ Story… but for how long? by Steve Moore at number eight or number 14 if you include the Bearcast and Tom’s new shareshow.
This will come as a bit of a shock to France’s Warren Buffett – Braveheart Investment Group (BRH) run by spiv pump and dumper Trevor Brown has raised £2.5 million via Peterhouse at just 18p. Wowzer. This stinks to high heaven. Shame on all concerned and here is why.
So says Fleet Street legend Brian Basham. Given that Brian has accused Vast’s (VAST) board of malfeasance and repeatedly called on the useless regulators to act against the company I doubt he has its best interest at heart. This is one case I would love to fight so bring it on Vast: see you Bitchez in Court! So what is Brian’s point?
It is my penultimate Sunday in Greece and I consider the idiot Mark Drakeford and special hurdles I face in returning to Wales. I have spent the afternoon poisoning frigana in the snake fields. Photos tomorrow but I discuss that. Then I ask listeners to do a final chip in to raise another £495 to see loathsome pig Neill Ricketts sweating in court. Please donate HERE. Finally, I ask you to send 2 emails to aimregulation@Lseg.com tonight. One on Central Copper Resources and why the IPO must be stopped and one on why sleazy Tim Yeo must be sacked at Powerhouse Energy (PHE).
Yesterday I flagged up the IPO of Central Copper Resources, a company set to list on the AIM sewer this week. There are numerous reasons why it should not and I have today written to AIM Regulation and broker Brandon Hill asking the former to intervene and putting the latter on notice
On 14 July, a company called Central Copper Resources announced its intention to list on the AIM Sewer. On 22 July, a schedule one announcement came out stating that the IPO was expected ”early August”. In light of what I reveal below, I would argue that if AIM Regulation is to have any credibility at all it must stop this IPO now.
I make no accusation here against UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and its boss Lyin’ Steve Sanderson. It is just that the recent timeline of disaster looks rather compressed to me. And given Lyin’ Steve’s form for er…lying, I have dropped the note, below, to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, cc’ing the woke dullards at the FCA since this relates to the conduct of an open offer.
Shares in Versarien (VRS) are being pumped by Bulletin Board speculation that the company has won a “major role” in HS2. If that is the case Versarien should announce the deal with hard numbers via an RNS. But it has not, it has leaked the story to “Punchline” the No 1 source of Business News in Gloucester. And then cult followers have spread the link all over the internet.
A group calling itself the Block Energy Support Group has emerged, representing around 20% of the currently issued shares in AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE). Unlike some shareholder support groups, such as the Quindell one, this support group is not for the support of current management and already two EGMs – one to remove the chairman and the other to commission a forensic report into the affairs of the company – have been called. One would imagine that such aggressive action might suggest that somebody knows something and via the support group’s website the bombs have started to drop.
Peter Brailey has the scoop on all the nationals. Ex Tory Minister sleazy Tim Yeo has been accused by a judge of lying under oath as he was found guilty of failing to appropriately discharge his fiduciary duties and now bankrupt TMO Renewables.
Such was the scandal when Charlie Wood was ousted from Attis Oil & Gas (AOGL) I thought that the London small cap world was rid of a wrong’ un we would never see again. I was wrong. London markets have no shame or standards. Thanks to Peterhouse Corporate Finance a man not fit to run a public lavatory let along a public company is back.
Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham was once a director of Vast Resources (VAST) but resigned in disgust at what he saw as blatant corporate malfeasance. He has been urging the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the woke dullards at the FCA to act, so far, without success. His latest missive to the FCA has fallen into the hands of Winnileaks and makes accusations that surely demand a response. It is shocking and it is below.
I start with logistical issues. Thanks to Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR), I need to find another hat to eat on video. This may take a while but I am a man of my word. I discuss Red Rock and why Bell has let me down. I end with a picture of where I was at lunchtime with Joshua celebrating today’s personal triumph re Eden Research and KPMG. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) where surely the FCA or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation must act now. Today’s news begs more questions for the AIM Shit of the year 2012-20, Richard Gill, aka Gollum. Then onto Hurricane Energy (HUR), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Eight Capital Partners (ECP) part of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) swamp.
Will Richard Gill, aka Gollum, the AIM Shit of the year 2012-2020, update the Crowd For Angels green ponzi bond prospectus to reflect the lies exposed by today’s full year results from Verditek (VDTK)? I doubt it. Remember that in the run-up to an October 2020 £3.5 million fund raise, this company announced EIGHT sales contracts.
Shares in Bidstack (BIDS) have slumped to just 2.95p today. There are two reasons for that but mad Jew-hating loons on the Bulletin Boards think there is a third. Of course, blame the wicked Jews for everything. Just why does this company attract such total lunatics? Do you remember cross-dressing IT freak Mike Turner from Northants?
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.
The staff at Bidstack (BIDS) should get paid next week, assuming that their employer can delay paying other bills. But it is unlikely to be able to meet next month’s payroll so calamitous has been the shortfall in trading vs expectations. Unless Nomad and Broker Stifel can get away a rescue placing within weeks, Bidstack staff should be brushing off their CVs as a matter of urgency. I have written to AIM Regulation as a statement is needed asap.
The comedy continues at AIM uber-dog Lekoil (LEK) of fake sheikh scam infamy. Three directors of Lekoil have today resigned and have written to AIM Regulation asking those crack regulators to investigate the company. Cripes do they not know about the Oxymorons? You may remember that on June 10 Lekoil fired its CEO, Mr. Olalekan Akinyanmi. On the grounds that he was also CEO of Lekoil Nigeria in which the AIM dog has a 40% stake.
Roland “Fatty” Cornish, London’s worst Nomad, and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation are yet to respond to my damning related party expose of Alien Metals (UFO) of last week HERE. While we wait and, as Roland starts the countdown to his elevenses, here are some more questions that he should be asking of his client.
The number of lies told by this company is so great that I have almost lost count. But then Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) is listed on the AIM Sewer where rule 67 states “Any company can lie to investors via RNS or in podcasts with Justin the Clown or that imbecile Zak Mir and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will do absolutely nothing about it.” Okay I made that bit up. And so, with no great hope of it doing anything about quite blatant RNS lying, I have written to AIM Regulation about Remote Monitored Systems and its Nomad and broker SP Angel asking for an investigation into a new £1.5 million lie that emerged yesterday. The letter is below:
This is my second letter this month to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation about Bidstack (BIDS) where some investors have been made aware that trading is way behind budget but others live in blissful ignorance. I demonstrated earlier that Bidstack is now within days of going bust unless it undertakes a bailout placing so AIM Regulation MUST force it to come clean. The letter reads:
Surely, before undertaking a bailout-discounted placing with bucket shops, a company has to come clean and admit that trading is way below what had been forecast? Those are the AIM Rules but Lyin’ James Draper and Bidstack (BIDS) do not give a rat’s arse about rules and neither, it seems, do the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. On 22 April, house broker & Nomad Stifel slashed its 2021 and 2022 sales forecasts and upped its forecast losses for Bidstack but the company is yet to admit that trading has fallen off a cliff. But today with cash down to almost nothing and staring down the barrel of insolvency, surely it must be made to ‘fess up? Here are the maths:
Fleet Street legend Brian Basham is at war with Marcus Stuttard, his team of Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the London Stock Exchange over its refusal to tackle what he sees as industrial scale abuse of market rules and shareholders’ funds at Vast Resources (VAST) where he was once a director. His correspondence with the hapless Stuttard, the self-styled Sheriff of AIM, began on April 20:
Three sorts of investors know that trading at Bidstack (BIDS) is far worse than the company had hoped for and that it now faces a gargantuan cash crisis putting its very survival in doubt: clients of Stifel, those who can afford a Bloomberg terminal and readers of this website. Thanks to the company ignoring AIM Rules 10 & 11, most investors are seeing their savings die of ignorance. I have again written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation urging them to force an immediate statement.
Needless to say, the morally bankrupt PR firm of Buchanan has still not replied to an email from Tuesday night regarding forecasts for its technically insolvent client Bidstack (BIDS). Presumably it is working hard finding a journalist to smear and that is its priority. When Steph Watson says she will reply to an email, what she clearly means is “I am a lying PR harpy and will do nothing of the sort.” But, without the assistance of mendacious Steph, I now have confirmation that house broker Stifel has indeed slashed forecasts which appears to be a clear breach of AIM Rules 10 and 11.
Earlier today, I reported on market speculation that Stifel, the house broker to Bidstack (BIDS), had slashed its sales forecasts and materially increased its loss forecasts for Bidstack (BIDS). This cannot have happened without a company chat so why has there been no official lack of sales/increased loss warning. Is CEO Lying James Draper again in breach of AIM Rules? I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, as you can see below
The company is All Active Asset Capital (AAA) a grossly over-ramped and over valued AIM sewer promote when penny share spiv Chris Akers is involved. Soo too is Johnny Mahtani the boss of Media Tech SPAC a murky, newly formed, company backed by Akers planning a stockmarket listing within months. There is a private Telegram group where Akers, Mahtani and others pump the stock. The screenshot below is from yesterday evening.
How did Versarien (VRS) get its shares, now c40p, from 10p up to 79.5p in 2017, eneabling 4 bailout placings and offering a platform for boardroom share dumping. As history show that was a grossly inflated valuation. Thanks to Winnileaks I can reveal how.
I have communicated with Britain’s finest regulators, no sniggering at the back please, a number of times on the matter of AIM bad boy Verditek (VDTK), the company run by Tory Toff Lord Willetts which is heading rapidly for insolvency. I have written again on the matter of its market abuse, deceiving investors to pump the shares ahead of bailout placings. The letter is below:
Here we go again! Do the BBMs never learn? Shares in AIM-listed jam-tomorrow IoT investment company Tern plc (TERN) took off again last week on more unfounded rumours on the bulletin boards that something is about to happen at principal investee Device Authority. Last weekend the shares were marooned at 7.7p. This week the shares shot higher to peak at 12.95p and closed the week at 10.75p in the middle. But there was no news, and we have seen this all before so many times……
It is not as if this company has not already had problems with Nomad’s quitting because of rule breaches and misleading statements before, is it? But with Eurasia’s (EUA) current Nomad being the fraudster’s Nomad of choice, SP Angel of MySquar (MYSQ) infamy, I guess that sticking to the rules is not actually needed. So that is alright then.
I hope that AIM Regulation is taking seriously the way that Verditek (VDTK) announced a series of EIGHT contract wins last summer to ramp its shares ahead of a bailout placing in October only to admit, incrementally, that almost none, if not none of the contracts had actually landed. Verditek has done this several times before and needs to be publicly admonished if it is not to commit securities fraud in this way again. But there is another matter…
I start with a reference to the covid testing stocks and the £8 billion Government tender I revealed earlier HERE. Then it is onto how companies are circumventing rules about ramping their shares with lies by getting shareholders to do the pumps via folks like Justin the Clown and Zak Mir. The FCA, AIM Regulation and corporate advisors need to stop washing their hands onto a range of abuses by shareholders and deal with it.
Yes, even MyHealthChecked (MHC) where I am a shareholder should have its shares suspended. The reason is a webpage which went live yesterday and which is now being widely discussed on social media which seems to show that the Government is soon to announce contracts worth £8 billion for covid test suppliers. This is going to cause share price mayhem on Monday.
On 21 January, joke graphene company Versarien (VRS) published interim results which misled investors as to its net debt position by classifying a £1.96 million (illegal) Government loan as a trade payable not as a loan. Having deceived folks with this presentation, loathsome boss Neill Ricketts was again selling shares, this time 1.65 million of them. Now, after I complained to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad SP Angel of fraud MySquar infamy, Versarien has ‘fessed. But even so, it does so in a misleading and deceptive fashion reinforcing why its shares are so utterly uninvestable.
As you are aware, Marcus Stuttard, the clueless bogus Sheriff of AIM who heads up the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, continues to insist that his market is a great success. Indeed he recently stated:
AECOM was the arch collaboration that was going to be a company maker for sleazy Neill Ricketts and Versarien (VRS). Just look at the Bulletin Boards back in July 2019. How the morons salivated. And then last spring things were ramped up again. On February 25 2020 we were told:
The whole Eurasia Mining (EUA) story stinks more and more with each day that goes by. Today’s episode started at no-one is watching O’Clock, 6.02 PM, with a statement that begs more questions than it answers. You may remember that on January 27, shares in the company slumped by 40% as it emerged that the company’s high profile boardroom M&A Advisor Alexei Churakov had dumped 27.4 million shares at 29p. That evening, I revealed HERE how Company Secretary Keith Byrne had apparently been reassuring private investors who inhabited a secret Telegram group that this was not an issue as Churakov had left some time ago.
On December 17 Bidstack PLC (BIDS) and its Nomad Stifel Europe, fully cogniscent of the likely outcome for calendar 2020, issued a trading statement which I believe, in light of a confessional and disastrous statement on February 1 2021 was a clear breach of AIM Rule 10. I have written to AIM Regulation demanding an urgent enquiry and that sanctions be taken if appropriate.
Earlier I broke the story of how desperate Supply@ME Capital (SYME) owning morons were gathering on Redditt to try to replicate the GameStop effect in the UK and to “FuckTheLondonStockExchange”, manipulating shares in the, currently suspended, con from a £122 million value to £12 billion! I will have some bad news for them from the FCA later. But there is another group on Redditt now trying to organise a GameStop on a range of stocks and guess which sleazy, share dumping, lying CEO of a cash guzzling AIM listed POS has signed up, as I demonstrate below.
Yesterday, Verditek (VDTK) finally ‘fessed that its 2020 revenues would be almost nothing. 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:
You would have thought that after the last scandal we exposed, where Zak Mir acted as a good German and posted on the private Telegram chatroom false ramps on the orders of a Eurasia Mining (EUA) director, the company would be a bit more careful about how it discloses information. Think again. Today the shares crashed by 40% as it was announced that M&A director Alexei Chukov dumped 27.4 million shares at 29p. On the “private and secret” Telegram chatroom punters panicked as we showed you HERE.
I start with a note on why we should spare a few thoughts at 8PM tonight. I then look at Gamestop, Elon Musk, Melvin Capital and sheer insanity writ large. From there I move onto Cineworld (CINE), Verditek (VDTK) where AIM Regulation really must act and then onto events at Sabien (SNT).
Twice in the past week, most stridently yesterday afternoon HERE, I have made it clear that Verditek (VDTK), the serial AIM sewer deceiver ramped by shamed tipster “old mother” Walters and chaired by Tory toff Lord Willetts, needed to come clean on yet another pre-placing deceit and its lack of revenues. I guess the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation were listening as this morning the company fessed up. It’s ouzo time for me!
Brian Basham has been a legend of journalism and PR for more than fifty years. He moves in the highest circles of the Labour Party, is a serial AIM NED and exposer of corruption, notably the HBOS Reading scandal, and is a man not to be ignored. He has written a letter to AIM Regulation boss, the fake Sheriff of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard which I publish in full below as it makes very strong allegations.
Shares in Ms Willingham’s AIM-listed Nightcap (NGHT) are the 3rd biggest riser on the Casino today, up 26% at 17p on the back of an article in the Mail on Sunday by Ms Harriet Dennys which, as I pointed out yesterday, is total bollocks and a deceipt. It quotes Ms Willingham and the question is has she told a monstrous lie or is Ms Dennys just making things up? With the shares roofing it, I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation as the company needs to comment urgently. This is a false market.
The results were so shockingly bad that it is hard to see why Versarien (VRS) bothered to mislead investors. But it did and in a material way and thus I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to flag this up and suggesting that odious Neill Ricketts and his disgraced Nomad, SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy, be forced to restate reissue a corrected version. The letter is below.
Being on the Standard List, Supply@ME Capital’s (SYME) statements are regulated not by the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation but the floor-shitters round at the FCA. When it comes to regulating the Standard List, the floor shitters make the Oxymorons seem like Inspector Morse, Hercule Poirot and the Sweeney rolled into one. I have already shown the nonsense being stated about Supply’s change of year-end and why it is trying to cover up. Next up is why the shares should be suspended at once. There is case precedent.
Just a few hours before voting to delist Octagonal (OCT) from the AIM Cesspit earlier this week, shareholders in the company were presented with unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2020. With AIM’s worst FD, Nilesh Jagatia, in charge and London’s worst Nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish, signing off, you will not be shocked that there were a raft of howling schoolboy errors.
Bidstack (BIDS) managed to ramp its shares up to 13p the other day thanks to the follow on from a trading statement which was long on ramp but short on critical detail. That AIM Regulation allowed a company with a history of deceiving investors to issue such bollocks is another mark of infamy on its already soiled record. After the pump, you know what comes next and it looks to be underway.
How do you know when sleazy former Tory MP Tim Yeo is lying? Simple: his lips move. Let me give you an example as, the firm he chairs, Powerhouse Energy (PHE) today raised £10 million at 5.5p, a 35% discount, thanks to bucket shop broker Turner Pope. Whilst it is coke and hookers all round as Turner Pope considers its £500,000 commission, I want you to consider this statement from 9 September 2020:
If you have invested in the IPO of her Nightcap (NGHT) company on AIM, I suggest that you have been. This company could go bust by the summer and should never have been allowed on the Casino. What on earth have Nomad Allenby and AIM Regulation been smoking?
Not only have Octagonal (OCT) and its boss John Gunn both been charged by the SEC with breaking Securities laws but both are now shown to have lied to investors in a massive way via RNS. Today they admit to that crime and then lie again. How on earth AIM Regulation think Gunn is fit to run not one but two AIM listed companies, Octagonal and Inspirit (INSP), defies belief.
Oh dear oh dear oh dear. AIM-listed and already suspended pending accounts St James House (SJH) has offered up a rose-tinted trading statement this morning…..oh, and by the way the accounts to January 2020 which were due for release at the end October and were promised in November and then in December will be out in January, honest guv’. It is different this time. But there is one tiny detail the company seems not to have mentioned…….
I have used Excel Sheets, Cray Supercomputers, and consulted the Necromicon and I cannot see a pattern in these 20 articles. The only thing that they have in common is they thare the the 20 most read articles on ShareProphets in 2020.
At 1.25pm AIM-listed POS Inspirit Energy (INSP) issued a statement relating to fellow AIM-listed Octagonal, where its CEO and Chairman John Gunn, and Finance Director Nilesh Jagatia also reside in the same roles, whose subsidiary, Global Investment Strategy is Inspirit’s sole broker – the very same subsidiary which has been charged by the SEC – alongside John Gunn, for aiding and abetting – with violating US broker-dealer registration provisions of the Securities Exchange Act 1934. Given that Jagatia and Gunn make up two thirds of the board of Inspirit, there clearly is a problem here!
On Christmas Eve Octagonal PLC (OCT) and John Gunn issued an RNS which is, with the document below, indicates to be a monstrous lie. The Nomad who signed it off, Mr Roland “fatty” Cornish is – as I showed HERE and HERE – massively implicated in this mess and should be struck off by AIM Regulation asap. But back to the Christmas Eve RNS. It looks to be a massive lie, surely now shares in Gunn’s other AIM listed dog, Inspirit (INSP) must be suspended too.
Yesterday I revealed how Roland “Fatty” Cornish was, as Nomad to Octagonal (OCT), approached by a whistleblower about manifest and multiple regulatory failings but instead of acting on this matter he dobbed the whistleblower into the company which saw the whistleblower getting a lawyer’s letter. This should see Fatty struck off as a Nomad now that the SEC – with FCA help – is charging Octagonal and its boss John Gunn over these matters and others. It gets worse for Fatty.
This is all to do with events at Octagonal (OCT) described earlier. When did Fatty know? The answer is that thanks to a whistleblower, it was aeons ago. But it is what he did about it that is the real scandal and why AIM Regulation must drum him out of the City PDQ if it is to maintain any sort of pretence that AIM is a credible market. PS. Merry Christmas to one and all, even Fatty.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and Neill Ricketts levered his corpulent self into a grand four poster bed in his newly built fake Tudor come fake Georgian Gloucestershire mansion. Bloody Hell, he thought to himself, the boy who left school at 16 with one GCSE in woodwork (grade D) has done good. He stared at the wall at a large picture of his idol. And Elon stared back.
How many letters have I written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation about the lies and market abuse committed by Versarien (VRS)? To their credit, the Oxymorons have, on a number of occasions, forced Versarien to issue a new RNS fessing up to various ghastly truths so they do heed my words sometimes. Anyhow, Versarien has told another porky today and so I have written again.
Following Monday’s bombshell expose on this site about a $20 million funding which clearly breaches Isle of Man Companies Law, Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) has today been forced into a partial ‘fess but still plans to go ahead with the illegal funding
I have been flagging up for ages that AIM-listed Yu Group (YU.) needs to raise money. After all, by its own admission it will run out of cash by the end of the year. Now, all of a sudden and with no news, the shares are off by 10%.
As a loyal former citizen of the Isle of Man I feel that it is my duty to go to my good friends at its Financial Services Authority on Bucks Hill in Douglas to dob in Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) for apparently breaking the law with its disguised death spiral placing announced today. Crime should not pay. Have they abolished birching for naughty Nomads on the island yet?.
Shares in Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS) have crashed by 19% today to 2.05p. Just nine days ago mug punters were paying 5p as, unbeknown to them, the two main directors flogged all of the shares in which they had an interest. This is a massive scandal and surely even the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will figure out that a Stewards is needed ASAP.
As at June 30, thanks to a grubby fund raise organised by Nomad and broker Stifel, Bidstack (BIDS) sat on £5.9 million of cash and bet current assets were only a tad lower. But as we approach Advent and the year end, that position has got much worse. When, I wonder, is the warning and official admission of that?
The Times newspaper today flags up a series of tweets which, almost certainly, break AIM Rules and relate to Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS), a company rapidly becoming the poster boy for the AIM Cesspit. They are not the hanging offence but there is a hanging offence out there…
On 17 April 2020, worthless AIM promote Bidstack (BIDS) published details of an “independent” study that it claimed validated its technology. Following intense pressure from ShareProphets, AIM regulation forced Bidstack to ‘fess on 27 April that the research was not at all independent but was paid for. In that light, I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and to hapless and shamed Nomad SP Angel about the release issued by Versarien (VRS) yesterday.
Over the weekend, I revealed the second reason why the RNS issued by cash-guzzling AIM Casino promote Powerhouse Energy (PHE) was grossly misleading. I have now written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation urging them to force Powerhouse and its shoddy Nomad WH Ireland to issue a full clarification and to face formal censure.
Another day brings yet another bailout placing for AIM listed sub scale investment company TERN (TERN). It will not be the last but AIM Regulation needs to investigate the circumstances of this placing for there is now a clear pattern of deception emerging. I have dropped the Oxymorons a letter today.
Over the weekend, I published data on the so called Gatwick Gusher which demonstrates that Horse Hill, instead of gushing, saw output more than halve in the four months to July to just 120 bopd One assumes that UK Oil Gas (UKOG) boss Lyin’ Steve Sanderson is now sitting on even worse data from the summer. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation:
If we do not get clarification from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) boss Lyin’ Steve Sanderson first thing Monday then AIM Regulation must surely act.
There is that old saying that when good management (although the jury is out on that) meets a bad company it is the reputation of the latter which survives. And that brings me to AIM-listed uber-dog St James’ House (SJH) – formerly Lib Dem grandee Lord Razzall disaster Boxhill Technology (BOX). We’ve had funding not arrive, vacuous trading statements and now this morning the company tells us it cannot get its accounts out on time. So why has AIM Regulation not suspended the shares forthwith?
Okay, I know that Neill Ricketts thinks that rules are for little people and since his Nomad is the disgraced SP Angel, which is quite happy to act for proven frauds, it probably does not care either. Maybe the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation need to whir into action?
Spotting misleading and deceptive RNS statements made by technically insolvent AIM listed ramp Verditek (VDTK) is like shooting fish in a barrel. The skill is in finding one that is demonstrably true! Given that the company needs a placing pronto to avoid bankruptcy, AIM Regulation and the FCA should be investigating all its statements made via RNS to establish if ANY are true, given how many pre-placing lies I have unearthed. So here is yet another one… Optimeyes
Of course the first order Verditek (VDTK) won in the land of high culture was way back in 2019. But that turned out to be a fake “take or pay” contract designed to ramp the shares ahead of three bailout placings. Having finally fessed that it made that one up, Verditek has today announced a real order from down under. But it is tiny and will do sod all to ease the financial woes of a company that is technically insolvent, having negative net current assets and which is still burning cash.
I am told that you can get borrow in Verditek (VDTK) and that the stock is now shortable. For the avoidance of doubt I am not short, I never am since it would allow folks who own shares in frauds, engage in frauds or promote or enable them to accuse me as having a vested interest and thus compromise my status as an investigative journalist. But if you are into shorting here’s why this company is now at the slow death or quick death point…
I have now proved beyond any doubt that technically insolvent Verditek (VDTK) has misled investors grotesquely during five separate fund raises. If AIM Regulation was not staffed by such poltroons, the shares would already be suspended. They may still be. So what does that say for the integrity of the man at the helm, the chairman Tory Toff Lord David Willetts?
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. I wrote:
I have already demonstrated HERE and HERE and HERE how AIM darling Verditek (VDTK) has deceived investors in peace time and also in wartime, i.e the run up to placing after placing after placing. Now I turn to events from August 2017 to October 2018 which did not start to come to light until June 2019 and show, with regard to the WES operation, industrial scale deception by the company, before and during a fund raise which also involved misleading investors. 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.
The criminal way that taxpayer cash is handed out by Innovate UK to companies that are either undeserving or can raise cash from share issuances in the private sector will, in the end, turn out to be a scandal running into the hundreds of millions of pounds. Yesterday I exposed the £4.6 million, wholly unjustified, spunk on Haydale Graphene and today I flag up £117,377 dished out to a total fraud, Environmental Recycling Technologies then listed on AIM.
Can there be any more red flags fluttering over laughable AIM Company Verditek (VDTK)? You bet there are. First up is today’s news of a share issuance for PR services. What PR you say? Exactly.
I have already demonstrated that AIM listed Verditek (VDTK) misled investors in a material way with regard to phantom orders ahead of placings in September 2019 and March and May this year. But this now gets far worse and AIM Regulation/The FCA needs to step in at once. Let’s start with the high grade Tory sleaze.
In yesterday’s bearcast, I explained why suggestions that Reach4Entertainment (R4E) CEO Marc Boyan was considering merging Reach with his private company Miroma should be investigated by the authorities. Upon reflection, the scandal is potentially even larger than I originally thought. Notwithstanding the fact that two guests at my wedding (Messrs Wray & Yeoman), of which I shall be celebrating the 7th anniversary this coming weekend, are intimately involved with Reach and will be very pissed off with what I am doing, I have now written to the Oxymorons and the Chocolate Teapots and asked them to consider involving the Takeover Panel. The letter follows.
Yes, it is corrupt to claim that with 60 articles a year you are chasing Neil Woodford when you were for two decades his greatest cheerleader on Fleet Street. Jeff Prestidge ignored ALL the warnings and kept on urging Mail on Sunday readers to average down on Woodford funds. He should hold his head in shame. He demands transparency over Woodford while I demand transparency from him so I have 4 questions the loathsome reptile will not answer. I also look at bent PR-led journalism at the Sunday Times ref BT (BT.) Then it is onto Reach4Entertainment (R4E) where the FCA and AIM Regulation should be all over the company, its CEO Marc Boyan, and chairman Lord Grade.
Enough is enough. Two weeks ago, an article HERE forced Verditek (VDTK) to admit on August 12 2020 that the two big contract wins announced in 2019 had not gone through but it had raised money without telling investors of these massive setbacks. On Friday, I showed that it had actively misled investors ahead of placings in September 2019 and March 2020. Enough is enough. How many more lies have been told? I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation asking for the shares to be suspended pending a full investigation into the company, its directors, and Nomad WH Ireland which, at best, has been asleep at the wheel.
On February 4 2018, I asked if Murray d’Almeida of Management Resource Solutions (MRS) would care to explain his links to an outfit called Halcyon as you can see HERE. Natch the FCA and AIM Regulation, the Chocolate Teapots and the Oxymorons, did nothing about this or numerous other matters we raised. Now Management Resource is no more but might the authorities care to reconsider looking at those responsible for its collapse, those who made money from it before the collapse, notably D’Almeida’s business partner, and those City advisors who enabled the sh*t show to run and run by turning a blind eye, or - in the case of legal tosser Peter Reynolds of Fladgate in threatening a journalist who exposed this scam (viz me) – I ask in light of the article below from the Australian press.
Verditek (VDTK) has been forced by my expose of last week to admit today that it DID mislead investors with regards to 2019 contract wins and revenues…
Eqtec (EQT) has always seemed to be one of those companies that is far better at delivering a stream of RNSs than it is at actually delivering anything of substance that actually generates a return for the average PI investor – although warrant holders have done very well as a result in the past!
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.
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. What is happening now is in clear breach of AIM rules. Thus an upstanding and concerned citizen who is, I believe, short of the shares though that is irrelevant has written to morally bankrupt Nomad SP Angel and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, demanding that rules be adhered to. The letter is below:
Between June and December 2016, I commented extensively in a series of article on the greed of William Dewsall, the CEO of Gable Insurance Holdings Inc, who extracted over £15 million in cash from the Group and its dire prospects, which to remind readers ended up being worthless when its insurance subsidiary company was placed into administration on 17 November 2016. Natch Nomad and broker Zeus and the oxymorons at AIM Regulation did nothing until it was too late.
I have noted many times before that SP Angel is so utterly desperate for clients to fund the coke and hookers bills that it will act for any corporate even a brazen fraud like MySquar (MYSQ). It is morally bankrupt and, without doubt, London's worst Nomad. As such with WH Ireland having quit as Nomad to Eurasia Mining (EUA) over the lying and other matters there was only one Nomad to go to, only one that would act for a company like this.
In December 2015 I published an explosive dossier which showed that AIM listed InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud, clearly fabricating its user numbers in its Akazoo operation. This was an operation that top fund manager Martin Hughes hads invested in firstly PA and then via the funds managed at Tosca. InternetQ denied my claims but brought in no independent investigators, instead in a deal bankrolled by Tosca the company went private in early 2016. No scandal. It was all covered up.
Tom Winnifrith and I have covered the FY19 results of AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN) and subsequent discovery of an unannounced change of Auditor is some detail already here on ShareProphets. But amid all our questions, in true Sam Antar style, Tern has remained stum so our questions go unanswered. Top of the list is why former auditor Grant Thornton stepped down – or was pushed – and whether the valuations on Tern’s balance sheet has anything to do with it. Indeed, one might wonder whether a breach of AIM Rule 11 has occurred.
Myself and some friends from here, the last village in Wales, walked the track around the 3 farthest fields at the Welsh Hovel and it is 1.1 kilometres long. That means that on June 13 I shall walk the circuit 50 times exactly raising the money Woodlarks needs just to survive into 2021. Today I did three laps as I faced a busy day. Tomorrow it will be ten. Please donate a few quid today HERE. In the podcast I consider in long detail the timeline of major share dealings at AJ Bell (AJB) which just does not look right to me. There are a stack of questions going begging. Then it is onto Eurasa (EUA) and what will happen on Friday. Will SP Angel again show that it will act for anyone or will AIM Regulation wade in to ensure Eurasa is booted off the AIM Casino? I discuss that matter in detail.
If morally bankrupt Nomad of choice for fraudsters SP Angel has not agreed to act for it by Friday, Euasia Minining (EUA), whose last Nomad quit in disgust at Eurasia's antics, will see its shares slung off the AIM casino. I wonder if even SP Angel might find acting for this company, valued at suspension at a ludicrous £200 million, a step too far.
In today's podcast I look at the pronouncements from the odious leprechaun at Ryanair (RYA), Michael O'Leary. He may be right in what he says but that is no reason to buy airline shares. Then I cover Corero (CNS), Open Orphan (ORPH), where I am both vindicated after Friday's letter to AIM Regulation and also a seller of more shares today, Novacyt (NCYT), Collagen (COS), Falanx (FLX), and Bidstack (BIDS). Thanks to those who have donated to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks but most of you have not yet! Please do spare a few bob as the campsite needs our help urgently if it is to make it to 2021.

Despite incteasingly desperate attempts to ramp its share price, AIM dog Bidstack (BIDS) sees its stock marooned at 6p. Interestingly, the spread is wide enough to drive a bus through, indicating market makers are aware that either one last ramp but also that a deeply discounted bailout placing may be imminent. But the bare fact is that the company cannot both meet May payroll and satisfy short term liabilities. As such, its shares should surely be suspended pending clarification of its financial position. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation today making this request.
We have heard nothing more from AIM-listed IQE over when head honcho Dr Drew Nelson received the dreaded margin call from Equities First Holdings (EFH) in relation to his non-recourse sale-and-repurchase deal involving (now) over 12 million shares. Yet as I noted on Monday, it seems pretty clear that we have not been told the whole truth and I shall be writing to AIM Regulation on that matter later today. But looking back, it seems there is something else which doesn’t quite match what we were told.
Since April 17 I have written to AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Mark Brady of SPARK four times about the latest big lie to investors told by Bidstack (BIDS). At 4.20 PM on 27th April came an RNS ‘fess up but I smell no contrition. This is a company with a culture of deception. But without ShareProphets it would have got away with it.
I have today written to Mark Brady of Nomad SPARK Advisory urging him to take immediate action with relation to the weekend's exatraordinary events, the involvement or otherwise of CEO Lyin' James Draper and other matters from the week before. Natch I cc in my good pals at AIM Regulation. The letter is below.
I have now written not once but twice to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation regarding the misleading RNS Reach issued by Bidstack PLC (BIDS) on Friday 17 April. The Oxymorons and indeed hapless Mark Brady at Nomad SPARK have yet to respond. So enough of monkeys, I have written directly to Marcus Stuttard, head of AIM Regulation, as you can see below.
The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK have yet to reply to my letter of Saturday about Bidstack (BIDS), the almost bankrupt company led by Lyin' James Draper which, I believe, (again) deceived investors last Friday. so I have penned a follow up missive. Surely the time has come to suspend the shares. The letter is below.
AIM-listed Internet of Things jam-tomorrow play Tern (TERN) has seen its shares miraculously rise from a low point of just under 4p last month to (last seen) today’s mark of 8.5p. So has Tern offered up a big contract from one of its investees? Er……no! I do know Tern still needs more cash, and that the BBs are full of a progress update from investee Wyld suggesting big things. But of course, there has been no RNS from Tern – something we have seen before ahead of placings which I would argue were on the back of wild speculation which remained uncorrected by Tern. Is it happening again?
Bidstack really should be clarifying its financial position. By my calculations it can meet payroll this month but will not be able to pay its bloated wage bill at the end of May. Its financial position is certainly perilous and that means that this company, run by a proven liar, Lyin’ James Draper, needs an urgent bailout placing ASAP. That is one issue it should clarify via RNS. The second is to clarify whether a statement it issued via RNS Reach yesterday was misleading. I believe it was, as explained HERE, and have now written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation suggesting that they force a follow up RNS. The letter is below.
I start with a note on Bidstack (BIDS), which I shall be taking up with AIM Regulation over the weekend and end with Future (FUTR) which needs to issue a profits warning. In the middle I go therough the very murky tale at AIM listed All Active Asset (AAA) which sees uber ramper Chris Akers in action and Peterhouse Corporate Finance boss Peter Greensmith make a £768,000 killing in his private vehicles while acting as broker and pulling the strings at AAA and also acting as broker to suspended AIM stock Asimilar which is involved in this strange tangle. Then it is onto Optibiotix (OPTI) and a small placing. But this is not a bailout as Cynical will no doubt claim but,possibly a gateway, to a mega re-rate as I explain.
Just before the long Easter weekend, Eurasia Mining (EUA), shares in which have now been suspended for more than two months, issued a partial ‘fess up. As I flagged up almost two months ago, Nomad WH Ireland has indeed resigned but why?
As I noted earlier, the RNS issued by Versarien (VRS) is a shambles and opens up all sorts of questions about share dumping by boss Lyin' Neill Ricketts last April. I was set to contact AIM Regulation and the FCA about it but it seems that valiant Tim Kempster has beaten me to it. The Regulators really do need to act on this at once. Tim writes
It is like extracting teeth. Getting the proven liars at Versarien (VRS) and the morally bankrupt evil PR spinners at Yellow Jersey, of the Frontera fraud infamy, to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is a nightmare. And we are still not there yet. Today, however, the company has been forced to start to clarify.
I swear i am not joking. I discuss my life with Evil (no, Mt BBM we are not gay lovers, stop sniggering at the back) and his remarkable macro view. I also reveal I have a treat for you all, keep May 8 in your diaries! In terms of stocks I look at the scandalous flouting of almost every rule by AIM Casino posterboy Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) and the wider issue that the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will do SFA about. I look at Burford (BUR) and more vindication for my pal Carson Block of Muddy Waters, at Carnival (CCL) - sorry Three Brains - and at Coro Energy (CORO) where the curse of James "Dracula" Parsons strikes again.
I am afraid it is true. I have today, April 1, given three months notice to ShareProphets as I have accepted an offer from the London Stock Exchange to head up a new unit tackling fraud on AIM. I cannot lie, I am doing it for the money. Marcus Stuttard has been remarkably honest in today’s release announcing the hire. The head of AIM regulation says:
Canaccord quit as Nomad to Versarien (VRS) partly because of the social media antics of its CEO Lyin’ Neill Ricketts. Obviously, new Nomad SP Angel does not care about that as it was happy to act for proven fraud MySquar (MYSQ). Do John Meyer and his cronies have any standards at all? And how will AIM Regulation take Neill’s latest lies
Yesterday Versarien (VRS) announced a death spiral on steroids which will only postpone bankruptcy and will see the share price shredded but the RNS was, I believe, an exercise in market manipulation and market abuse. Only a Nomad like SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy, could have signed off on it. I have written to the regulators demanding that, again, they take action
The Wagnerian opera of the eventual demise of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Walcom (WALG) continues, as we learnt today that the bailout rescue loan from its CEO is still not in the bank, but apparently more orders and perhaps more importantly measures from the Shanghai government in response to the corona virus mean that the company will survive until a week on Monday in the continuing absence of the CEO’s largesse.
Shares in Telit Communications (TCM), the company founded by mortgage fraudster Oozi Cats, have collapsed from 170p two months ago and 150p a month ago to just 114p to sell. There are three possible reasons for this and I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking it to force the poltroons at Nomad FinnCrap to force Telit to issue a statement. The letter is below.
On Monday, the largest oil company on the AIM Casino, Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC) will announce annual results and give us an update on its proposed move to the Main market. The shares were 126p back in June when Oarfish Research kicked this off with a stunning four part dossier which has been followed by a series of accounting exposes on this website. The company is clearly in breach of IFRS and I have reported the company to the FRC, so what is happening. The shares are now 76p.
Excluding ShareProphets Radio 26, the most read non-Tom article this week is Is it Better To be Short A Stock Promotion Or A Total Fraud? by, um, TweetingCEO. No, I don't know who that is, either. He or she is in 7th place, or number 15 if you include Bearcasts.
The FCA and AIM Regulation are now looking at Neill Ricketts claim to have sold shares to fund the building pf a laboratory at a school which has not built the lab and claims a much smaller sum is NOT coming from Neill persobnally. While the regulators deal with that act of market abuse here is another twitter lie from Ricketts.
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.
An article has today appeared in the Russian press and has now been picked up on Bulletin Boards. It is damning evidence that Eurasia Mining (EUA) is itself the source of rumours that created a disorderly market and share suspension. How on earth can the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation tolerate this? Surely a statement on various rumours detailed HERE, is needed now. The sixth and critical paragraph of the article with my underline and using google translate is below.
Nine days ago shares in Eurasia Mining (EUA), having rocketed to 7.3p were suspended following “social media” comments which we revealed to be a suggestion that after months of promising to sign an engagement letter with Chinese bank CITIC, that it had signed and was well on the way to making massive disposals. Since then amid a lack of news there has been nothing and he rumour mill is in overdrive. A statement on some of the rumours is needed now as some investors fear they may lose everything while others consider how many Porsches they will be buyng. So what are the rumours?
Yesterday, for the third time in less than a month, Versarien (VRS) was forced by an article on this website and then by AIM regulation to come clean on something, this time a founder director dumping all his shares. Let’s go for a fourth win, the relationship, or lack of it, with BIGT. My letter follows.
Today we have the shock news that Versarien (VRS) has a new Nomad. Not a better Nomad, SP Angel is clearly massively inferior to Canaccord and this begs the question whether Versarien lied to investors on February 10. I have thus written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and to the FCA with a question so simple that even they should be able to answer it.
Yet again shares in Versarien (VRS) have risen on a rumour which appears to come from the company itself. Once again there is a false market and so once again I have written to AIM Regulation urging it to force the company to come clean.
On 5th February 2020 Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) lied to shareholders as it admitted that Matt Lofgran had signed a secret deal that seems to give him a job for life however badly he runs the company.
Nigel Somerville is too nice a guy to ask if a company has been a very naughty boy indeed. I am not. I note his piece earlier on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and it seems obvious that, while Nomad Allenby probably does not give a flying feck, the question should be asked. And so I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking them to investigate
We know that Bobbie signed off on most of the untrue and fraudulent releases issues by Quindell (QPP) so perhaps he will sign off on anything? But the February 4 2019 RNS from Versarien (VRS)? Really?
This is a total omnishambles clusterfuck and it is hard to know where to start. So let’s just note the strange coincidence that yesterday shares in Bidstack (BIDS) were marked sharply lower and today the company has served up the most godawful of trading statements. But this is AIM, supervised by those stormtroopers of propriety, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation with assistance from the chocolate teapots at the FCA so there cannot have been any insider dealing. No really. Stop sniggering at the back please.
Versarien (VRS) has today issued an RNS which suggests that its Nomad, Bobbie Hilliam at Canaccord, has allowed it to drive a coach and horses through AIM Rules 10 and 11. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking that Versarien and Hilliam be sanctioned and that it force the company to issue a clarifying RNS.
As part of the ramp of Versarien (VRS) shares in the summer of 2018 ahead of the September bailout placing, the company announced a string of exciting deals. Hmmm. Given that revenues from graphene are still negligible maybe it is worth hapless Nomad Bobbie Hilliam of Canaccord asking a few questions. He would not want to get caught with his trousers down as he did with the Quindell fraud would he? Take the 18 June 2018 RNS “Collaboration agreement with MediaDevil."
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.
Following my letter to AIM Regulation this morning, AIM-listed Haydale Graphene (HAYD) has attempted to quell the reaction to yesterday’s trading update, which appears to show that the company was allowed by its Nomad to breach AIM Rules by offering a clarification. But it is attempting to clarify the unclarifiable.
Yesterday I showed that AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) appeared to have been breaking AIM Rule 11 upon the disclosure that a new line in the States had seen commissioning delayed until November, despite the company appearing to have told the market that it had been in commercial production since last June in an RNS dated 15 October – when one now presumes that commissioning was known by the company to be delayed.
Oh dear, oh dear, London’s worst Nomad, Roland “Fatty” Cornish really does have a lot on his plate this morning. I refer not to his third portion of finest Manx Kippers dripping in butter, followed by a quartet of hot crumpets with lashings of strawberry jam. No, he is already in hot water over his advice to ADVFN (AFN) that it should break AIM Rules but now Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham has written to Fatty about another of his cash guzzling and worthless clients, Vast Resources (VAST) and, thanks to Winnileaks, I have that letter.
Versarien (VRS) insists that it has one full time employee in the United States, a Mr Brian Berney. But does it?
Thanks to Winnileaks I now have in my possession a damning email sent by London’s worst Nomad, the restauranteurs saviour, Mr Roland “fatty” Cornish to his client ADVFN (AFN) advising it to take a course of action in direct breach of AIM Rules. I do not blame ADVFN for this at all but surely Fatty needs to be given an almighty bollocking by AIM Regulation for his latest crime?
Two days ago Versarien (VRS) was forced by AIM Regulation, following a complaint by me, to ‘fess up that its much vaunted US “hub” was in fact an empty serviced office where nobody works. But in that ‘fess up RNS it made another claim which may or may not have been verified by the hapless Nomad, Bobbie Hilliam of Quindell infamy, now working at Canaccord. Thus, I have again written to AIM Regulation as you can see below.
In May of last year uber ramp Versarien (VRS) proudly announced a major US move. Unfortunately what it said was grossly deceptive and after I wrote to AIM Regulation last week it has today been forced to ‘fess up to this. Neill Ricketts is increasingly like the naughty boy sat outside the headmaster’s study almost every lunchtime hoping it is just another beating not a letter to his parents saying he must leave the school in disgrace.
AIM Regulation has now acknowledged my complaints about the secret chatroom inhabited by Versarien (VRS) boss Neill Ricketts and his disciples where Neill told them what to post on Bulletin Boards and where the disciples discussed how to get around insider dealing rules and how to attack me. The complete radio silence from Ricketts since then suggests that investigations are very much ongoing. In that vein I have another matter to raise with the regulators, that of possible investor deception. My letter just sent is below.
Oh dear, Oh dear. Last week I exposed the private Discord chat room where Versarien (VRS) shareholders discussed how to leak inside information, Neill Ricketts told folks what to post on Bullettin Boards and the groupies discussed how to deal with me. Well guess what?
Neill Ricketts continues to operate an almost Trappist new media silence suggesting that my letter to AIM Regulation and his Nomad Bobbie Hilliam of Canaccord about the private Versarien (VRS) Discord chat room is being taken very seriously indeed. However, over the weekend evidence emerged HERE of just how fragrantly Neill Ricketts breaks AIM Rules and so I have written again.
I have not had a threat of legal action for some months so I knew there was something missing from my life. So can you guess which poltroon or poltroons has or have been daft enough to threaten The Sheriff of AIM with legal action? With a deadline of midnight tonight to guess I offer you six options. Do your best!
All the signs are that AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Canaccord is clamping down on the private Versarien (VRS) chatroom inhabited by Neill Ricketts and his Versarien cronies after shocking revelations like this HERE. However Winnileaks now has material from a similar chatroom on the private Telegram platform where Eurasia Mining (EUA) boss Dmitry Suschov and his proxies are "at play".
Say what you wish about shameless ramper Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) but he is a man who would turn up at his local Women's Institute meeting if there was an opportunity to ramp his shares. He'd never turn down an opportunity, however small, for a spot of ramping. But right now he is embroiled in a regulatory tangle with his Nomad and AIM Regulation over the secret Discord Group exposed HERE and HERE. Ricketts was set to fly on Tuesday of next week to host a lunch in God's chosen lands of Ulster...
Yesterday's shocking expose of how Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) was using a private chat room to pass unverified and price sensitive information to select investors should have forced AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Bobbie Hilliam of Canaccord to act. So far nothing. So thanks to Winnileaks I have more screen shots, maybe this will finally see order restored...
Earlier today I exposed how in a private chat room group, Neill Ricketts, the shameless boss of AIM listed Versarien (VRS) was communicating information not verified by his Nomad and therefore not demonstrably true but clearly price sensitive. I have now written to AIM Regulation and to the company’s Nomad Canaccord which, surely cannot be aware of this. The letter follows:
Last year I forced Versarien (VRS) to issue a clarifying RNS after Neill Ricketts made unverified and it seems untrue claims on twitter. Nomad Bobbie Hilliam at Canaccord read Ricketts the riot act and his twitter outpourings have been greatly diminished. But I can reveal that he has a new conduit on a private chat group on Discord. I doubt his Nomad or AIM Regulation are aware of it but thanks to Winnileaks they will be soon and will be horrified as I have a series of screenshots to share.
The statistics for AIM for December 2019 show that the market contracted to 863 companies its lowest number since 2003. The real concern for the LSE should be the shockingly low number of new listings a derisory 23, the lowest number of new issues ever since the market as formed in 1995. The quantum of new monies raised was also very low by historic standards at £489 million and this figure is not adjusted for the impact of inflation.
Bidstack(BIDS) has a CEO who is prepared to lieu to investors as he demonstrated on August 8. That the company’s Nomad SPARK Advisory and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation have not ensured that Mr James Draper is fired shows you what a joke the Casino has become. Now we have clear evidence of a double breach of AIM Rules. I have written to the Regulators today, demanding a full investigation. My letter follows:
NoGold has still not been in touch regarding the £50 he owes me. It seems as if my good mates at the FRC really are getting tough on executives who commit accounting fraud. Fabbo. But I ask for more. And what of lying? It is fraud of a different sort and I have strong suggestions for what the FCA and especially the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation already can do and very rarely do do but need to do so more often to drain the swamp and put me out of a job.
I have today written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation with regard to Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS) and its disgraced Nomad SP Angel of Mysquar (MYSQ) infamy, asking if monthly management accounts can be produced to justify statements made just three weeks before the last bailout placing on October 18. If they cannot be produced the regulator needs to take severe action against the company and its Nomad. I write
The board of Plutus Powergen (PPG) has now conceded that it has received a valid request for a GM to sack current directors Charles Tatnall, James Longley and Tim Cottier and to appoint Nicholas Lee, David Horner and Dr Nigel Burton to the board of the Company. This should be entertaining but it could be more so.
I have now arrived at the Greek Hovel, photos here. In today's podcast I discuss the pitiful way Sam Smith of FinnCrap (FCAP) blames Neil Woodford for the state of AIM. For once I defend the disgraced fund manager. I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA), I3 Energy (I3E) and also at Fastjet (FJET), a company that uses journalist smearing Citigate to polish its turds. The Eurasia podcast I refer to which should now be looked at by AIM Regulation is HERE
Once again, as happens several times each week, the word vindication springs to mind. You cannot say that you were not warned countless times, right from the time of its IPO to the near reading of the last rites today, that this crock of shit would end in tears. That moment is almost upon us.
On Friday I demonstrated that Lyin’ Chris Cleverley’s NEX listed Block Commodities (BLCC) had told material lies to investors, lies tantamount to fraud, since March 27 this year. I have today written to NEX Regulation and the FCA demanding that action be taken against Cleverley and Block, starting with its delisting but not ending there, and that corporate adviser Alexander David Securities lose its NEX license for enabling this mendacity. The letter follows.
AIM dog Brady (BRY) will shortly be taken over by PE firm Hanover at 10p a share. If the deal is not supported by shareholders the company will go bust. I have already twice written to the FCA and AIM Regulation demanding that they investigate how Brady and its Nomad Cenkos mislead investors. Today the scale of that deception has become clear.
Of course what Bidstack (BIDS) should be doing is issuing a trading statement via RNS. Does it still expect to have 24 games live by December 31 as forecast by Peterhouse. Or to have FY revenues of £5.75 million (having managed £26,000 in H1) or to achieve FY losses of just £500,000 (having lost £1.5 million in H1). The answer of course is No, No and No which is why the company should be issuing a formal profits warning and if Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK was not such an utter poltroon he’d be forcing the issue. Instead Lyin’ James Draper has issued a trading statement on LinkedIn. My guess is that his nose is just that bit longer as a result.
In today's podcast I look at the looming General Election, at a pathetic excuse from Hargreaves Lansdowne (HL.) for not commenting on Neil Woodford, at Sound Energy (SOU), the ramp du jour Euraisia Mining (EUA), at the scandals at Tern (TERN) and Big Dish (DISH) and what they say about the institutionally useless FCA and AIM Regulation and at the profits warning from Empressaria (EMR).
This morning we discover that AIM listed jam tomorrow purveyor Tern (TERN) has again passed the hat around with a discounted placing raising £1.75 million at 11.15p. But it was only able to get a placing away at that share price because of spurious rumours which the company and its advisors must have been aware of and which it did nothing to quosh. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and to the chocolate teapots at the FCA requesting an urgent investigation into the company, its Nomad Allenby and broker Whitman Howard. It is not as if Tern does not have form in this respect.
Individuals not companies commit fraud, lie via RNS and break securities rules. And it is individuals not corporates who must be punished for their crimes. Otherwise getting caught for white collar crime becomes simply another “cost of doing business”. In that vein I have again written to the FCA and AIM Regulation about Brady (BRY) where I do not accuse anyone of fraud or lying but I do accuse them of heinous rule breaches.
I have already written to AIM Regulation and the FCA about Bidstack PLC (BIDS) about the way its CEO James Draper materially misled investors in a podcast with Justin the Clown on August 8 2019 with regard to half calendar year results. I trust that action will be taken. But I now have cause to write again on the matter of the full year lack of profits warning the company should be issuing and is not. The letter follows.
In a mere 80 years, neither Europe, nor the Americas, nor China will have any cities in the top ten by population, according to this video. Where is the growth? Africa.
On 3 October I write to Bobbie Hilliam who looks after shameless Versarien (VRS) at Nomad Canaccord Genuity and cc’d in AIM Regulation. I have yet to receive a reply but the matters raised are grave as you can see below: The matters and the failure to address them compel me to stay short as one day this will implode.
My comrade Evil Banksta has today exposed how AIM listed Bulletin Board darling Bidstack (BIDS) has misled investors and is also clearly sitting on a lack of profits and sales warning. For the former naughtiness the FCA should open an enquiry at once into possible market abuse, for the latter AIM regulation must force a statement. Being a fine upstanding citizen I have today written to the regulators. My missive follows:
Eleven days ago I exposed the funding crisis at AIM casino dog Brady (BRY) which it, and its Nomad Lagos Securities, had hidden from investors for a long time, The shares were then 26p. Thanks to my correspondence with AIM Regulation it was forced to, at least partially, ‘fess up to its problems. As I write the shares are now 4.05p having crashed another 46% today. Time for an urgent statement and share suspension methinks. Specifically we need to know:
Last week I reported Brady PLC (BRY) and its Nomad to AIM Regulation and the FCA over material non disclosures. As a result, the former forced Brady to issue an RNS in which it came clean as to the horror of its financial position. Now it seems as if the latter is looking at my material and might just launch a formal investigation. The FCA has been in touch with its favourite investigative journalist and writes:
Yesterday I revealed, HERE, the shocking way that Brady PLC (BRY) had withheld damaging price sensitive information from the AIM Market and investors, in part with the collusion of Nomad Cenkos. With the company now having to raise £3 million in just six weeks simply to meet November payroll but needing far more to be viable, it and Cenkos are still dissembling about the nature and scale of its problems. I have today written to AIM Regulation and the FCA asking for a formal investigation and to force Brady to come clean. The letter is below
Yesterday AIM Casino listed Altitude (ALT) served up a very nasty lack of sales and profits warning relating to the six months to June 30th as Steve Moore described HERE. What absolutely stinks to high heaven are three share transactions made by founder and NED Martin Varley. Those trades would have had to be cleared by the board and the Nomad, hapless FinnCap, to whom I have written in today, copying in the regulators. There is another big issue that needs investigating too...
