As African Potash (AFPO) this company was booted off the AIM Casino after its Nomad quid when discovering – thanks to me – that the company had told grotesque lies to get placings away, it had committed fraud. Chris Cleverley, cousin of leading Tory James who is no longer claiming he wants to buy West Ham, then took Potash to the Aquis lobster pot, changed its name to Block Commodities (BLCC) and carried on telling lies to investors for which the company was censured and fined, after I pointed this out to regulators. Could it get any worse? You bet.
Oh dear, Lyin’ Chris Cleverley, the cousin of Tory party bigwig James, is in a spot of bother having been slammed by the regulators of the junior exchange Aquis for misleading investors in his POS company Block Commodities, formerly African Potash. Better still, Aquis acted on a specific letter from my good self sent on 18 November 2019.
On 18 November 2019 I wrote to the clowns and buffoons who describe themselves as the NEX Markets Regulation department, no sniggering at the back please, with slam dunk evidence of three monstrous lies told by Lyin’ Chris Cleverley’s Block Commodities (BLCC), formerly African Potash (AFPO) until it was slung off AIM after I proved it was engaged in wholesale fraud. The twits at NEX acknowledged my letter and have clearly done nothing about it as Lyin’ Chris has issued a new release showing how he has broken all the rules. Again!
There are no guests in this week's show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me and I start with the tale of Lyin' Chris Cleverley, the lying fraudster cousin of Tory Party chairman James. Lyin' Chris runs listed companies and there is no doubt he is a liar and a fraudster so why has the FCA not acted? Then it is onto PureCircle (PURE) a billion dollar fraud, where after six years, myself and Lucian Miers are utterly vindicated. I invite you to read its 2018 annual report and despair at the woke world of best practice in corporate governance. If you like this and can't wait seven days for more of the same and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.
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.
In the years 2015-17 I demonstrated numerous times with articles such as African Potash (AFPO), No No No you are lying bastards and African Potash - now let's look at the lies in the RNS 6 days before the bailout placing in January, that then AIM listed African Potash run by Lyin’ Chris and Labour peer Lord Hain of sleaze had told industrial scale lies to ramp their shares and get away placings. This was fraud plain and simple….
Ok, so Horse Hill is now shown to have been a great big 100 billion barrel piss take. David Lenigas does not mind. He is no longer involved with any of the Horse Hill stable of related party companies he helped to create. He’s probably sold his shares. He’s almost certainly made millions of pounds and so he needs a new game,a new crock of shite to ramp. Step forward AfriAg (AFRI) on the NEX lobster pot and the tweet below.
On 25 October the fraud African Potash (AFPO), now listed on the NEX lobster pot having been slung off AIM, managed to raise £60,000 gross (call it £45,00 net) at just 0.06p to keep the lights on. It is still drowning in liabilities and clearly insolvent. Hey ho, wind forward 12 days to today....
The whistelblower who assisted me in exposing the fraudulent statements made by lyin' Chris Cleverley and African Potash (AFPO) and signed off with no attempt to verify by Stewart Dickson at nomad Cantor Fitzgerald has now assisted those investors who want their money back. Praise be the Lord, Cantor is in the merde.
We asked you a simple question HERE. Look at the mugshots of the honourable chaps below and tell us the odd one out. For those who could not recognise the ugly sisters they were (top row first, left to right): Dodgy bubble Costis from Greek fraud Globo, Roger Lawson ( NOT a fraudster), the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry of Quindell, lyin' Chris Cleverley of African Potash, Peter Shea of Daniel Stewart and Jimmyliar Ellerton of Sefton infamy. So who is the odd one out? No-one got this one correct.
When African Potash (AFPO) goes bust and its boss lyin' Chris Cleverley has to look for another job he should have a crack at comedy. His release at no-one is watching O'Clock yesterday was pure genius.
To be thrown off one market because your adviser tired of signing off on lies is understandable, if you are a fucktard in AIM Regulation who does not care about fraud. But, to paraphrase my fellow Anglo Irishman Mr Wilde, to be thrown off two markets for that reason looks like carelessness. And that brings us to the fraud African Potash (AFPO).
Don't these fools ever learn? For chancers and crooks like Darren Winters, the shysters at Globo, Blinkx, Quindell and Daniel Stewart and for lyin Chris Cleverley and Lord Hain of sleaze and for so many others, sending me a fascist lawyers letter never works out well. That is not for them at least. But it seems there is one born every day. A new letter is in demanding that three years of articles be removed, that damages and costs be paid and that I put my name to a grovelling apology dictated by this poltroon. Who do you think is daft enough to have sent it? Vote now in our latest poll with a deadline of midnight tonight.
Of course Cantor Fitzgerald is so large that it could afford to compensate all of the 70 or more investors working with Peter Petyt and this website to try to recover losses from the African Potash (AFPO) fraud. But the publicity of a case would be hugely embarrassing so sordid would be the revelations. Anyhow just 10 days more sweating for Cantor...there is an update from Petyt.
You would have thought that having not one but two advisers resign because they would not sign off on its lies, being out of cash, having its shares suspended on NEX after being slung off AIM would be enough to kill African Potash (AFPO). But it appears that the holy water, the garlic, the silver crucifix, the stake through the heart and all the other tools in Van Helsing's bag are not enough. But remember, in the end the Count will die.
"Lyin' Chris Cleverley, fascist lawyers Memery Crystal,, NED Declan O'Brien,clueless accountants RSM Tenon, SA sleazebag MP Mark Simmonds, Phil Edmonds, Andrew Groves, we have beaten them all, we have beaten them all!. Lord Hain of sleaze, can you hear me? Lord Hain of sleaze ... your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!" Yes I think we can now declare victory in the war against African Potash. It never ends well for frauds especially those who hire fascist lawyers to send wanker letters to The Sheriff of AIM.
In this week's contest we were looking for special examples of folks who learned their maths the Diane Abbott way. It seems the regular ShareProphets' rogue's gallery was nominated. But we could choose only one.
ShareSoc it is starting to serve up some opinions of worth. Its latest comment on the RBS scandal is bang on the money and shows why the UK Financial system is flawed and will screw we little people every time.
The case for suing Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald over the African Potash (AFPO) fraud builds. It may be that CEO Lyin Chris Cleverley is also sued by shareholders who lost out although it is suspected that he has little in the way of assets so it may be worth sticking with Cantor. The man running the case Peter Petyt has just sent the following update with intriguing new information:
As you know I have been keen to ensure that all those who cost investors millions of pounds in facilitating the fraud that was African Potash (AFPO) face justice. Thus I have been pushing to assist those who did lose to get some of their cash back with a legal case against the Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald. The man in charge of that is Peter Petyt who has just sent an update to those who have contacted him. If you lost money and want to get on board it is NOT to late. Peter writes...
This week's contest is graciously sponsored by African Potash, AIM, NEX, Chris Cleverly vehicle that is bound to hit the stratosphere.*
As I flagged up over the weekend, in a desperate attempt to keep the fraud from becoming insolvent, African Potash (AFPO) has proposed a RTO of a company called Onshore Energy Limited, OEL. Lyin' Chris Cleverley Potash's boss is also a director and shareholder on OEL. But it gets worse. Much worse.
Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.
This really should have been an ouzo o'clock moment as lying Chris Cleverley, Lord Hain of sleaze and the gang round at the African Potash (AFPO) fraud saw their shares suspended on the NEX lobster pot. But I was a good diabetic and had a Greek salad, medication and water instead. But I am off sick leave this morning because dissecting such unmitigated horseshit brings joy to my heart and is good for the blood pressure and the soul. This is comedy central from lyin' Chris who is still to follow through on his promise to sue me for libel. I can't think why. The Potash statement is in bold, the lie detection service is not. Brace yourself, this is funny.
I have not heard back from Amit Ben Haim, CEO of the fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) about the generous offer I made him earlier HERE. I am just such an all round nice guy am I not? The bad news for him and lyin' Chris Cleverley CEO of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud is that I met with lawyers today to try to see if their is a case for those who have lost money buying shares in either fraud. We think there is and Potash will be first in line. If you have lost money on Potash my email is email@example.com and follow the instructions in this podcast AT ONCE. I also look at Management Resource Solutions (MRS) and Igas (IGAS) and remind you what it means if bonds in a company trade at a big discount to par.
Oh dear, Oh dear. Another source has come forward to expose yet another monstrous lie told by the fraud African Potash (AFPO) back in the autumn of 2015 as part of its pre bailout placing series of ramptastic lies. The undisclosed bungs, the $10m LOCs that did not exist, the bogus orders all were aimed at getting awasy the January 12 rescue bailout. It worked, the shares were ramped higher. But it was on the basis of lies. That is fraud. Let us rewind to 25 September 2015.
Good news from the land of high culture: Aussie mining boss ( and former investment banker) Benjamin Kirkpatrick has just been sentenced to 12 months in the slammer. His crime? The same thing lyin Chris Cleverley did at fraud African Potash (AFPO), Fancy a roomie Ben?
If you want to sell shares in the fraud African Potash (AFPO) now on the NEX lobster pot, you will now get 0.03p. So the shares are now more than 99% down from the peak. So what news on trying to sue the board or the advisers at Cantor Fitzgerald to get your cash back?
Now booted off AIM and listed on the NEX Markets lobster pot the fraud African Potash (AFPO) is almost out of cash, owes the FD's fragrant wife Katrina Clayton $985,000 so where is the rescue placing it admitted it needed? Admit it CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley your company is almost insolvent - when will you fess up and suspend the shares?
Send Tom Winnifrith a fascist lawyers letter as the fraud African Potash (AFPO) did on September 1 and your fate is sealed. Today African Potash was formally booted off AIM. Now it will fail to raise cash on NEX (formerly ISDX) and will go bust soon. Lyin' Chris Cleverley meet Karma. Ain't she sweet? Amazingly there are still some people out there on the Bulletin boards who think its all my fault and Lyin' Chris runs a great British Company. Whatever. In that vein please nominate the most moronic Bulletin Board or twitter comment you can find in the comments section by midnight on Sunday 15th January. Have fun!
The fraud African Potash (AFPO) has been formally booted off AIM today as no Nomad is prepared to act for it. It is a day of shame for lyin Chris Cleverley the CEO and his senior NED Lord Peter Hain of sleaze. The shares are now only listed in the joke lobster pot that is NEX Markets, it is almost impossible to sell in any size and even harder to raise cash as a company. So Potash will soon go bust. At the weekend I explained the very odd timeline of seven days in September that lead up to the last Nomad, Cantor Fitzgerald, quitting. Now look at lyin' Chris's words since.
It has already been demonstrated here by the publication of leaked documents that African Potash (AFPO) lied to investors via RNS in November 2015 and January (6) 2016 in order to get a placing away. Now another document has fallen into my possession which shows how Potash misled mug punters into piling into the shares on August 4 2015 as it announced "Landmark Trading Agreement with COMESA". Sadly for CEO Lyin' Chris Cleverley I have the original MOU which we can now compare and contrast with the RNS. Oh dear. Kerboom!
You may well remember that one of the frauds committed by African Potash (AFPO) in November 2015 was the announcement of a ramptastic deal with Beryl Holdings. The company announced all the good bits ( which as it happens failed completely to materialise in any way shape or form) but neglected to mention a £600,000 bung it had agreed to pay to Beryl. Unfortuanately for lyin' Chris Cleverley I got hold of the contract and pubished it and also alerted auditors RSM Tenon to its existence.
African Potash stated in its annual report that on the ISDX (now called NEX) lobster pot it might be more difficult to raise money than on the AIM casino. I should cocoa. The last trade was on December 29. Liquidity is just nil and the 0.05p offer prize only applies if you want to sell peanuts amounts. If you invested in this fraud just accept that your shares are now worthless as it cannot get awaqy the £600,000 placing it dsays that it needs to survive. So Potash is going to go bust soon. But your cash might not be lost. There is a small chance.
That African Potash (AFPO) is clearly trading whilst insolvent is beyond doubt. It admits that it needs to raise $600,000 to pay its bills as they fall due but trading volumes on ISDX are often just a few hundred quid a day. It's game over. So where has all the money gone? There is a reason that the board did not want anyone seeing the annual report which finally surfaced today.
No wonder that fraud African Potash (AFPO) did not want anyone reading its accounts which have finally arrived six days after they were signed off. It is a gold mine for anoraks like me. Let us now turn to page 45 and note 21, related party transactions of which there are many. But I refer to the third such transaction which involves CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley.
We have been contacted by a number of shareholders in African Potash (AFPO), which is now on ISDX and will soon be booted off AIM Formally and will go bust within weeks, who have lost money and want to sue someone over this fraud. We will back any such action with a generous donation but the question is who to sue and on what grounds? But, sorry to break the bad news to certain folks on Christmas day, but wheels are in motion...certain folks may wish to call a lawyer PDQ
The fraud African Potash (AFPO) now sees its shares trade on the ISDX lobster pot as it is still yet to find a replacement Nomad to act for it on the AIM Casino following the resignation of Cantor Fitzgerald. Not even Cairn Financial - which pro tem acts for the serial liars at Cloudtag (CTAG) - will act for lyin' Chris Cleverley. So on January 7 the relegation to ISDX will become permanent. The pledges of CEO Cleverley that he was optimistic of finding a new Nomad will be shown to be...er... lies. Quelle surprise. But it gets worse and will get even more worse on Christmas Eve.
Surprise, surprise. After three months of looking for a Nomad to replace Cantor Fitzgerald who did not want to sign off on any more lies, the FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) has found no-one to take on the gig. It says that it is still in talks but who is so desperate for cash that they would want to act for such a slam dunk fraud? If no-one signs up for reputational hari kiri by January 7 Potash will be slung off the AIM Casino for good. Right now its shares are merely suspended. But what about the ISDX listing?
Shares in the fraud African Potash (AFPO) made their debut on the ISDX lobster pot today and for some reason have surged on AIM. This is a dead cat bounce. Tomorrow they will be suspended on AIM and a month later booted off the Casino because no Nomad will act for this company - Cantors having given notice on September 7. The reason that no Nomad will act - despite promises from lyin' Chris Cleverley in a recent RNS that he was confident one would - is that Potash issues lies via RNS to get placings away. Thus it is a fraud.
Last year my three part Christmas Carol series starred white collar criminal Chris Oil. The year before it was fraudster Rob Terry. But who to go for this year? There are so many choices. I have a few ideas on my short list below but what do you think?
Yesterday I pointed out that the FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) had applied to join the ISDX lobster pot as of December 8, the day its shares will be suspended on the AIM Casino if no Nomad is prepared to act for it, Cantor Fitzgerald having tired of signing off on its lies. I also pointed out that lyin' Chris Cleverley had failed to tell his shareholders. Today Potash fessed up..but it gets worse.
For sleazy Lord Peter Hain and lyin' Chris Cleverley and their colleagues on the board at FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) the main priorities are finding a new Nomad who will do anything for money including acting for FRAUDS and finding investors to pony up for a bailout placing PDQ to avoid tits up time. But if the gents at Potash have a spare couple of minutes how about an update on Uganda?
Oh dear, oh dear, the problem with frauds is that eventually they run out of other people's money. And when they can't pay the bills, even morally bankrupt crony capitalist AIM advisers, decide that enough is enough and quit. And thus Cantor Fitzgerald has today said it is resigning as Nomad to the fraud African Potash (AFPO) - which is still not suing me for libel despite promising to do so on September 1st if I did not cease calling it a fraud and pay it £2,000. GOTCHA Potash: you are still a fucking FRAUD now where's that libel letter you bastards? I want to see you fraudster bitchez in Court so badly. So what's going on here. One broker summed it up brilliantly today:
On 1st September the fascist and grubby law firm of Memery Crystal threatened me with a libel suit if I did not agree to hand over to it a blank cheque within 24 hours as well as withdrawing all of my articles about its client African Potash (AFPO) and promising to never write again about Potash. Natch I told Memery to feck off just as I did when it tried to extract cash from me with menaces on behalf of both Pirate Pete Landau and the Globo fraudsters. I really want to see the African Potash bitchez in Court as disclosure will be a hoot. But...
Oh dear it may well be ouzo o'clock round at Sheriff Towers if not all round coke & hookers time, as it has just been pointed out that one of those silly folks who made the mistake of trying it on with legal threats appears to be in a spot of bother. Congratulations, you have just met the Sheriff of AIM....

On 1st September AIM listed fraud African Potash (AFPO)demanded that I pay it money, withdraw all my articles about it and promise never to write again. It stated that if I did not comply by 4 PM on 2nd September it would be forced to take legal action against me. I told the bitchez at fascist lawyers Memery Crystal that I was 2 nil up against its fraudulent clients so far (Globo and Pirate Pete Landau), that I could not wait for disclosure that would bring me a hat-trick and that I'd see the bitchez in Court. So where are we now, a month later? Er....
On Monday we asked you to supply suitable captions for the picture below featuring Lyin' Chris Cleverley the CEO, and expenses guzzling socialist hypocrite NED Lord Peter Hain of FRAUD African Potash (AFPO). After four weeks, Potash has still not sued me for libel as its fascist lawyers Memery Crystal promised so I guess it accepts that it is a fraud then. Of course it is. Everyone knows that aprt from hapless Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. Your suggested captions reflected that matter as you can see HERE. But the winner is:
Here we have African Potash (AFPO) CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley in action with his senior NED Lord Peter Hain. I am not sure what they are doing but perhaps you know. Can you supply a suitable caption by midnight Thursday which will be four weeks since Potash promised to sue me for libel for calling them out as a fraud. I'm still waiting. Post your entries in the comments section below. My entry is:

And there was I thinking that if AIM listed companies had bad news they had to issue an RNS? Well maybe Chris Cleverley has re-drafted the rule book because Northern Petroleum (NOP) seems in no rush to fess up to the impending collapse of its Argentine subsidiary.
Management is critical to any company. So how good is lyin' Chris Cleverley of the fraud African Potash (AFPO) and, until last week, Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Supporters say that he is a whizz kid. So let's look at all those companies where he also sites on the board. As at December 2015 he numbered five other current posts and 18 others within the prior five years. a busy chap. But what value did Chris create? This will utterly horrify you.
Earler this week, I had an appointment with the Home Office in beautiful Croydon to determine if I may stay in the country. Tom immediately set out a call to readers to convince Amber Rudd that I should be deported immediately.

This morning it has been announced that Lyin' Chris Cleverley the CEO Of fraud African Potash (AFPO) has quit investmentment company Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) where he became a NED on 16 December 2015. He leaves with immediate effect citing a desire to "concentrate on other activities" and we are told the decision is mutual. What horseshit.
So far all the rats remain on board the stinking ship of fools and fraudsters that is African Potash (AFPO). But one rat is going to jump at some stage as either the authorities prepare to swoop or the company finally runs out of other people's money. We asked who would be first to go and you said:
My good friend, the king of the fraudsters Sam Antar, was on cracking form this week reminding us all of how he used to hoodwink auditors KPMG over many years when masterminding the Crazy Eddie's fraud. You can see the genius Sam explaining all HERE. I am keen that the fine firm of RSM UK Audit LLP, does not find itself made to look like KPMG style fools, and have thus penned it an open letter today on the subject of both impending bankruptcy and also fraud at its client African Potash (AFPO). I am such a nice guy trying to help out these simple City folk don't you think? The open letter follows:
Things are moving fast at the fraud African Potash (AFPO). So far it has not - as threatened - instigated legal proceedings against me but in light of specific information now in my possession which is enough to see folks bunking up as Rob Terry's roomie we say bring it on. See you in Court Bitchez! We sense that some of the rats in camp Afpo are getting skittish so the question is which one abandons this sinking ship of fools and fraudsters first? You decide, please vote in our African Potash rat poll below - deadline midnight Sunday.

Aha, let's tell the morons that we are going to take legal action against Tom Winnifrith for pointing out that we are lying bastards who commit fraud. That will allow us to get a rescue placing away but we don't want to go for libel because disclosure would destroy us. Telling spivs you are going to sue the Sheriff of AIM allowed the fraudsters at Sefton to issue more confetti several times and African Potash (AFPO) is using the same playbook. But death for this worthless POS is merely postponed by a few months.

I still await a letter from lawyers to lyin' Chris Cleverley and the fraud that is AIM Casino listed African Potash (AFPO) but since the disclosure process will destroy both lyin' Chris and his company I cannot wait. Meanwhile AIM Regulation has sent a standard response acknowledging anot noting my demand that it investigates Potash and its Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald over the misleading and untruthful RNS statements of December 1 2015 and January 6 2016. I have replied to AIM Regulation putting it on notice...
African Potash (AFPO) has not put out an RNS but it has reassured Bulletin Board Morons that it is is preparing legal action against me. Great news. I cannot wait to see the bitchez in court. The disclosure process will be a hoot. I really look forward to seeing that Letter of Credit from the January 6 RNS because it DOES NOT EXIST. Disclosure here will destroy Potash so bring it on Bitchez;. The statement which PR operatives St Brides has sent to morons by email reads:
Over the past week I have demonstrated quite clearly that African Potash has engaged in securities fraud as lyin' Chris Cleverley has, on a serial basis, lied and misled investors in order to get away a bailout placing. In this podcast I make it clear: lyin' Chris must sue me for libel or must resign in disgrace. I shall up the ante later as more documents fall into my possession. Elsewhere I look at Strat Aero (AERO), Tlou Energy (TLOU), Avocet Mining (AVM), Cloudtag (CTAG) and in a detailed way at Pressure Technologies (PRES).
In two days time African Potash (AFPO) must repay its finance director's wife $1.1 million as it is obliged to clear the most expensive loan in AIM history. It has no cash so prepare for mega dilution as the loan will be repaid in shares at 0.29p per share, or lower. Against that background I have, this weekend, shown that on both January 6 2016 and December 1 2015 it lied to investors ahead of its last bailout placing, it engaged in fraud. The man charged with holding CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley to account on this is perma-tango tanned Labour Lord, Peter Hain. I have written to his Lordship today.
I have already shown quite conclusively that African Potash (AFPO) misled investors in a material way with an RNS of December 1 2015 as you can see HERE. That should be enough to see the authorities slam both Potash and Stewart Dickson et al at Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald. But it gets worse. I now accuse Potash of lying in an RNS on January 6 2016 just 6 days before the bailout placing. It is lie after lie after lie from this company.
I have already alerted the FCA, AIM Regulation and the FRC to the growing scandal at African Potash (AFPO) with regard to the non disclosure of a £600,000 bung on December 1 2015 as part of a pre placing ramp. Now it is onto the Serious Fraud Office, SFO, to whom I have written today.
Firstly I untangle Friday's RNS from lyin' Chris Cleverley and the fraudsters at African Potash (AFPO) - folks you need to do the maths! Then I explain why, as at next Thursday, this fruadulent, out of cash piece of Turkish is screwed. The countdown is on as Katrina Clayton knows full well and the the full posse is in pursuit. Congratulations lying Chris..you have just met the Sheriff of AIM. Football fans will understand the phrase - should I get a calling card made?
My man in London has provided me with a new email sent by African Potash (AFPO) CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley. This now allows me to publish the contract signed with Beryl Holdings, so demonstrating to you all how misleading the announcement by Potash was and also the bung involved in this deal. More critically I can now demonstrate the individuals at City firms who were aware how misleading the RNS was and - given that Potash was on the pathway to a placing - how fraudulent that is. Those City figures I name and shame should now all be placed on immediate workplace suspension ahead of a formal enquiry.
On December 1 2015 AIM listed African Potash (AFPO) announced what appeared an incredible marketing deal for its fertiliser with a company called Beryl - of course nothing has come of the deal and what African neglected to mention was a £600,000 bung. A source in London has sent me the signed contract. One month and 12 days ahead of a bailout placing investors were grossly mislead as to the nature of the Beryl deal. Potash shares need to be suspended at once and AIM Regulation and the FCA have to get involved.
Wow! Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) just got an option to buy 7.5% of a great company for just £1. And the company has an amazing gold and copper asset in Bongo Bongo land. It sounds almost too good to be true...precisely. Caveat emptor this looks like a pre placing ramptastic load of horseshit. So lets investigate and "fiske" the news.
Blenheim says that it:
On 6th January 2016 African Potash (AFPO) announced a major sales deal. Six days later it got away a bailout placing. Gradually over the months that followed that sales deal was shown to be bogus, a sham, not worth the loo paper it was written on. But at least the ramp allowed this AIM Casino posterboy to get its placing away. Now the bastards are at it again. 30 seconds on Google is enough to make you doubt a word this company says as it tries to get another bailout placing away. African is teetering on the verge of insolvency.
He tried his best to ramp this crock of shite but even arch twitter ramper Wayne Gibson, aka Big Gib, could not push the rancid wastewater that is Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) uphill. Having bought a stake of 5.625 million shares ( 3.05%) just before Christmas at 0.8-1p, Gib has now bailed, taking a huge haircut.
If anyone sees Chris Cleverley about town make sure he reads this. The "spin" from supporters of African Potash (AFPO) is that the events of yesterday are just a matter of bad PR, nothing unusual on the AIM casino and we should just move on. Ben "flip flop" Turney tweets such nonsense. Boy has flip flop lost the plot. African has been seen to have made statements via RNS, as it worked a placing away that were just, by its own admission, untrue. It raised cash on a false prospectus. That is fraud. Its shares must be suspended and its CEO Chris Cleverley deserves to go to prison. And he might just do that. Flip Flop sent out two tweets on this matter yesterday:
