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

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

BREAKING: BDO Narrowly Avoids signing off on a 155 million Euro blooper & the war crimes of FTI Consulting – the Akazoo fraud

Thanks to the good works of Gabriel Grego, Akazoo (InternetQ as was) has now been thrown off Nasdaq and the SEC are crawling all over it, its main backer and author of its corporate deals, Martin Hughes’ Tosca Fund and various advisors. One firm that has narrowly avoided a massive bullet, as I can reveal today, is auditor BDO Global.

EXPLOSIVE: Top fund manager Martin Hughes & Tosca Fund – what exactly were their role in the InternetQ/Akazoo frauds?

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.

Vindication for Tom Winnifrith (yet again): Ouzo time! Akazoo (InternetQ as was) admits it’s a total fraud: sales and users almost all fiction

Those who read my From Athens with Love dossier on InternetQ (INTQ) in 2015 when it was AIM listed will have been in no doubt that its users and sales were pure fiction. Today there is final vindication for me, this is yet another massive fraud from Greece.

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

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

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

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

InternetQ - what are the dodgy bubbles hiding now - accounts overdue....

In December 2015 from my winter base in Greece I ran a series of articles, starting from Athens with Love, which, I believed, quite clearly showed that the Greek, AIM listed company InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud. Specifically I demonstrated that its music streaming business Akazoo was a sham. The company denied this and in the end its boss Panagiotis Dimitropoulos and fund manager Tosca paid c£20 million to buy out minority shareholders and take InternetQ private. It is now called Akazoo Ltd. The Sheriff is still on the case

BREAKING: InternetQ- was I right about the dodgy Bubbles after all? Companies House shocker emerges

In the December 2015 from my winter base in Greece I ran a series of articles, starting from Athens with Love, which, I believed, quite clearly showed that the Greek, AIM listed company InternetQ (INTQ) was a fraud. Specifically I demonstrated that its music streaming business Akazoo was a sham. The company denied this and in the end its boss Panagiotis Dimitropoulos and fund manager Tosca paid c£20 million to buy out minority shareholders and take InternetQ private. A cute deal or burying the truth in private? This is going to shock you.

A letter to Penta & Martin Hughes at Tosca re InternetQ

I have sent this letter. I don't expect a response on the matter of InternetQ (INTQ).

InternetQ, Still betting on Common Sense Over Pride.

On Dec 14th last year I pointed out that if Toscafund and its partner Penta Capital were still happy with their madcap €104 million valuation for Akazoo, the music streaming business they bought in to last year, they could buy out the whole of InternetQ (INTQ), their majority partners, for less than half of that amount and still have the rest of its business thrown in for free.

Quindell - Tosca gives you another chance to short: grab it

Quindell (QPP) has had a good few days after it emerged that Toscafund, a UK hedge fund,  holds 5.4% and upon the appointment of some fairly ropey NEDS, one of whom has already been involved in a mini scandal since he joined Quenron. The shares have tripled from last month's lows to value the company at £393 million, not bad for a concern whose founder has very publicly been involved in all kinds of fraud and skulduggery.
