‘twas the night before Christmas and Julie Meyer was hanging up some particularly expensive stockings, naturally bought on expenses from her Ariadne days, in the mock fireplace of her rented Zurich apartment. “I know that I have been a good girl this year and if there is nothing in there in the morning that just shows that Santa is just a horrid old misogynist like the rest of them” muttered Julie to herself.
Not all of them, of course. The regulator, on this occasion, is not concerned with the unpaid wages, the unpaid payroll taxes, the criminal charges laid against Meyer and her failure to appear in Court when summonsed. As ever, it appears that while Meyer boasted how her Maltese operations were hugely profitable and had massive asset backing, for some reason, there was never any cash to pay even small bills. But it is not that which the MFSA has opined upon.
That suggestion in Friday’s contest was not the answer I was looking for. Mr Mercer has many failings, not least his despicable part in the Roger Scruton witch hunt, but I bet the ranch that he does not wear women’s underwear. There were a number of suggestions as to who of Amber Rudd MP, Mercer, Simon Hume Kendall and Julie “Lingerie on expenses” Meyer was the odd one out as you can see HERE.
Ariadne Capital, the flagship vehicle of Julie Meyer may now be in administration but with the Insolvency Service and the FCA (as well as the IRS, HMRC and others) formally investigating Ms Lingerie on Expenses, whistleblowers should surely be cherished and protected? Er…
After 365 days of cracking financial journalism, here are the top 20 stories that ShareProphets readers were obsessed by.
Oh dear, oh dear, the cutlure of legging over regulators with false submissions at the Ariadne ponzi scheme headed up by Julie "lingerie on expenses" Meyer seems endemic. In this email thread below followed by the filing submitted by Meyer herself we see Malta employee Chris Cachia and ex in house lawyer Peter Bradley discussing how to avoid financial penalties for Ariadne in Malta by not telling the truth about the date a key officer, Peter Hale, actually resigned. Natch I have passed this on to the MFSA for it to consider as part of its ongoing and wide ranging investigatiuons into Ariadne and Ms Meyer.
Maybe Julie "Lingerie on expenses" Meyer MBE thought Winnileaks was on holiday. Winnileaks never rests. Our latest document shows Julie playing fast and loose with the truth as she ballted to avoid facing justice against the Start Up Loans Company.
Perhaps, when you are on the run from the Maltese Police, being investigated by the SFO, FCA, MFSA and ActionFraud and be chased over unpaid sums dating back, in some cases more than a decade, by 3 banks, the IRS, HMRC, Maltese tax authorities and two folks with CCJs, another Court case is the least of your worries. But for Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer that new Court case came a step closer today. PR legend Henry Gewanter has filed papers.
As you may remember the lyin’, tax evading fraudster Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer MBE, currently avoiding the Police in Malta where she faces criminal charges, has tried to rebrand by dropping references to Ariadne ( her main ponzi empire) and promoting the name of Viva Capital LLP. Uh Oh – a new problemo has emerged. Oh dear Julie…it never rains…..
I note that Julie Meyer is still keen to tout herself as a guest speaker as you can see below. But she now appears keen to distance herself from the Ariadne name, something she has been pushing for a decade and a half. Does she think Ariadne has toxic associations? She now links herself to her private company Viva Capital - the one that has not filed accounts for 2016, 17 and 18 and whose last accounts were clearly bogus but showed cash of nil. Whatever...
In his time as General Counsel to the Ariadne Group run by Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer , Mr Peter Bradley had occasion to send me three lawyers letters on behalf of his boss who is now being investigated by the FCA, the MFSA, the SFO, Action Fraud, the IRS, HMRC and is wanted on criminal charges by the Maltese Police. I had thought that Bradley had parted company with the charlatan, liar and fraudster Meyer in April but the Ariadne website, as you can see below, suggests otherwise.
How do you make a Maltese Cross? Well how about doing that which the regulators at the MFSA have strictly forbidden you to do? Thanks to the Winnileaks service we have another emailed letter from Julie Meyer
Oh dear, oh dear, the Winnileaks service is on fire. Catch up dead wood press! Earlier today I published an email & letter from the Maltese Regulators, the MFSA, to Julie Meyer on 24 November 2017 showing that her version of events which has seen her licenses suspended was simply not true and that she has defrauded at least one investor as you can see HERE. Now here is a second confidential email from the regulator dated 9 January 2018 ...
Another day and another fake news press release lands from cash strapped devout Christian Julie Meyer signed off by her new lawyer from Farrer & Co. Gosh I want to see the Farrer bitchez in Court on this one... On Friday the Maltese regulator the MSFA suspended Meyer's license to operate on the island (and thus under passporting rules anywhere in the EU) and made a damning statement as you can see HERE. Meyer's response is fake news so I serve it up with a Shareprophets translation service. Fake News from Farrer & Co is in italics.
As you can see below, Julie Meyer and her crumbling Ariadne empire are only allowed to conduct financial business - such as managing her crappy fund - in the UK thanks to an EU passport from her Maltese authorisation. With that now suspended how soon will the FCA update the page below. More importantly...
Praise be the Lord! This evening the Maltese Regulator, the MSFA, has finally acted - as I predicted it would two days ago HERE. It has stated that, having been investigating devout Christian Julie Meyer personally as well as Ariadne Capital Malta Limited - her regulated operation - since last November, it has today suspended its license to operate with immediate effect. The statement is no holds barred. The MSFA opines:
Seemingly not content with three lawsuits and sets of criminal charges against her in Malta, Julie Meyer can now expect a fourth to add to Henry Gewanter's case against her in the UK.
Oh dear, even by the standards of Julie Meyer MBE this is prize bullshit from the fake news department . She has today announced that having invested more than 1 million Euro in Malta ( my arse she has) she is quitting the island. Naturally everyone else is to blame. Ms Meyer states that:
I was reminded today about numerous ways Julie Meyer has bullied her critics to silence them - defamatory internet posts, lawyers letters, the works. Thanks to the Winnileaks service we can now see confidential emails which show how she managed to silence ex employees posting on the workjplace review site Glassdoor.co.uk. First up is an email from Julie to key lieutenants within Ariadne including lawyer Peter Bradley. It is dated 26 November 2017.
Oh dear it seems that the myriad of Ariadne companies just got that bit less complex with two more biting the dust for failure to submit accounts for the year to March 31 2017. So what were they hiding as they have now been formally struck off as you can see below...
"Other internal matters include the missing stationery from the meeting room. I now understand this was misplaced by myself and I apologize for the last email missive which blamed ex-employees"... Take a wild guess about which paranoid devout Christian somewhat in the news might have authored this missive. I am grateful to a reader who highlights a treasure trove of such gems.
Noting yesterday that Julie Meyer MBE had hired a new high powered lawyer (to replace the half dozen or more to whom her companies owe money for unpaid bills) I wondered why ace PR spinner Henry Gewanter did not have his name on the release. Henry has answered with a post on the article. It reads:
Given the administrators bombshell report into the demise of Ariadne HERE, the administrator's shocking report into the demise of Taggstar HERE and all the other shocking exposes on Julie Meyer we have run HERE would you be rushing to hand this woman any of your cash? But it seems she wants it.
Is it that it is the organisation that threatens poor people ( and disproportionately women) with jail if they don't pay the BBC poll tax so that very rich women can get pay rises? Or that Neil Woodford is such a big shareholder and has said so many funny things about what a great investment this is? I discuss the woes of Capita (CPI). I also look at Rosslyn Data (RDT), and its interims which are out today and show that it is 100% fecked. I discuss the Ariadne bombshell of today and the red flag lessons for those who buy shares in listed companies. And remember today is tax deadline day!
Julie Meyer MBE, of the Ariadne Group, has this weekend launched the most scathing of attacks on the former MD of Ariadne Capital (now in administration) Amit Pau who quit before it went under - essentially she accuses him of dishonesty and incompetence and says the he was told his days were numbered from early 2017. But sadly for Julie Meyer the Winnileaks facility has thrown up a confidential email she sent to a prospective investor in Ariadne on 6 October 2017.
There is a new kid on the twitter block, @ariadnecapitals seems to ask a lot of questions of the Ariadne Group and Julie Meyer as you can see below. How long before Julie sends a lawyers' letter to get it shut down?
In today's podcast I consider Julie Meyer and Ariadne, Provident Financial (PFG), another Neil Woodford dog, UtilityWise (UTW), OnlineBlockcrap (OBC), Mayan (MYN) and Carillion (CLLN) and how we capitalists keep on scoring own goals.
Lawyers for Ariadne Group and Julie Meyer have demanded that I withdraw an article of 9th January about Ariadne Capital Ltd (in administration) and Ms Meyer - a letter to the FCA and publish their statement. I am always happy to help those doing God's will and have removed the piece.
As you know I got a lawyer's letter from the Ariadne Group run by Julie Meyer yesterday. I explain why the in house lawyer poodle chap is a very confused young man. He has not, as he said he would, got back to me to clarify his confused position. I urge you to read Nigel's AIQ expose today as it is most excellent. I discuss Haike Chemical (HAIK) and why it is by definition a bad company as is - as per today's article here - Purplebricks (PURP). Then it is onto the looming bun fight at Paternoster Resources (PRS) - if any of Nick Lee, Amanda Van Dyke and Melissa Sturgess which to dish dirt on the oppo, I am here and happy to publish it all. You see I am everybody's friend.
The woman branded borderline "hysterical" and accused of giving evidence that was "not credible" by a High Court Judge in 2016, Ms Julie "Praise The Lord" Meyer MBE has lashed out at the administrators of Taggstar Ltd accusing it of misleading folks over allegations made by Meyer's successor as sole director, in a report itr publishbed that Meyer is a thief and a fraudster. She is the victim, natch. Poor dear.
To misquote a fellow Anglo Irishman, to have one company called Ariadne go into administration is understandable but two would look like carelessness. I flagged up 4 days ago that Ariadne Capital Entrepreneurs Investments Limited was an accident waiting to happen. It looks like we will not have to wait that long...
In the UK the former Dragon's Den star who is a fully paid up member of the great and the good, Julie "Praise be the Lord" Meyer MBE stands accused of fraud and theft as we revealed HERE. - this is a charge she vigorously denies see HERE The FCA has now said that it is looking in to her and her flagship company Ariadne is in administration. But what of her offshore bolt hole in Malta where she runs five companies and is, pro tem, regulated to run her fund?
There is religion. There is evangelical religion. And there is Holy Trinity Brompton Religion. HTB to its pals. It is a church, dominated by the rich and well heeled, whose pastor Nicky Gumbel pioneered the Alpha Course, the zealous evangelical outreeach programme designed to breath fresh life - and an uncompromising message - into the Cof E. And Praise be the Lord...I see that Julie Meyer MBE tweets away for she is among the faithful.
