I first wrote about the High Street Group 426 days ago. It was the sixth mini bond scheme I had written about. Of the first five, four being London and Capital Finance, Blackmore Bond, Bassett & Gold and Buy 2 Let Cars and all in administration and in the case of London and Capital Finance and Buy 2 Let Cars, the Serious Fraud Office are investigating the Directors. Wellesley Finance managed to pull off a Creditors Voluntary Arrangement and persuade investors to take a significant haircut in order to let the group restructure and avoid administration.

The pattern has always been the same. We issued explicit warnings about London & Capital Finance,, Blackmore Bond, Bassett and Gold, Buy 2 Let Cars, The High Street Group and Wellesley Finance. Companies such as my beloved West Ham United screwed over their fans and continued to support these rogues. The FCA was too busy publishing papers on the gender pay gap, Brexit, climate change or LGBT awareness to do anything until tens of millions of pounds had been lost. But heck it is was only the great unwashed who suffered.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) scheme has today announced grim news for nearly all of those who had their money stolen by Amber Rudd’s good pal Simon Hume-Kendal[l and others at London & Capital Finance. Almost none of these mini-bond victims will be getting any compensation. But every cloud has a silver lining…

The FCA and our elected leaders at Westminster continue to pretend that the London & Capital Finance mini-bond scandal is a one off and not the tip of a vast mini-bond iceberg. Readers of this website know otherwise and we have flagged up a number of times that Blackmore Bond is likely to be the next scheme to topple. Here is more damning evidence for the regulator to ignore.

MPs and the FCA seem happy that London & Capital Finance, which we have done so much to expose, is a one off fraud. Of course it is not, it is part of a much larger mini-bond scandal. Hundreds of thousands of vulnerable savers will face ruin and our leaders and regulators are asleep at the wheel. In fact LCF is one of a number of such schemes to go pop. The next big one to topple will, be….

I commented on the investment case for Simec Atlantis Resources (SAE) a few month ago – I called it a sell and justified my opinion at some length. Having reflected on my prior article, and frankly all writers of opinion on investment cases should reflect on their opinion, I am now clear this company’s retail bond offering is at best immoral. For a “Green Energy” company what could be worse?

In early 2019, I wrote a series of articles on what has become a widely known minibond scandal. On 6 January 2019, I flagged up a swathe of red flags at London and Capital Finance Plc (“LCF”) (now in administration). On 3 February 2019, I asked whether Blackmore Bond Plc was another minibond disaster in the making? Well it looks increasingly like that was yet another incredibly prescient call, the latest warnings signs are:

Independent Oil and Gas (IOG) has been on a roller coaster of a journey over the last few years, with plenty of highs and lows. Some aspects have been of its own making, such as the unsuccessful appraisal drill of Skipper back in 2016 and some due to external influences like funding by what increasingly looks like a chain of fraudulent financial backers in London and Capital Finance via London Oil and Gas.

Dim-witted MPs and poltroons of the deadwood press seem to think that the London & Capital Finance is a one-off. Sure the level of theft by Amber Rudd’s pal Simon Hume Kendall was obscene but as we have flagged up many times there are stacks of other LCF type mini bond scandals waiting to emerge. I highlighted back in February 2019, a number of similarities between Blackmore Bond PLC and, now, insolvent London Capital and Finance Plc.
