After his senior role at disgraced broker, Daniel Stewart - enabling China frauds including Naibu - Paul Shackleton should have been banned from financial services. Instead, he is now earning a six-figure wedge at Peel Hunt. But the morally bankrupt bankster is getting a bit forgetful
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most read non-Tom article is Always Prepare for a Good Story Going Wrong as Gear for Music Hits a Sour Note by Malcolm Stacey, leaping back in to the leaderboard after a long absence, at a fantastic Number 1 or Number 8 if you include Bearcasts.
No doubt the ESG loon fund manager mates of Chris Bailey will be gagging to invest in Quob Park,the new venture of Quindell fraudster Rob Terry, becuaseshowing his commitment to diversity, Rob now confirms his correct pronouns to folks who follow him on Linkedin. Rob is "he, him" for the avoidance of doubt, as you can see below. And showing that crime does pay, Knob Park is booming and hiring. I can't wait for the AIM IPO.
I end with a question for you. Who should feature in the Christmas carol here on ShareProphets? Past Scrooges include Chris Oil, Rob Terry, Neill Ricketts and Neil Woodford. Who should join that merry band of fine upstanding citizens? Before then I discuss a chat with a broker about placing ennui, Tungsten (TUNG), what was WPCT (SUPP) and Rutherford Health (RUTH) where we await imminent news of the bad variety.
The top non-Tom article this week is Three Shares You Just Don’t Want To Own as they should all go bust! by Nigel Somerville at number two or number six if you include the Bearcasts.
I discuss the SFO, FCA, FRC, the big four accountants, the media and political classes and the big lawyers and the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry. I fear nothing will change. I go into detail how it could and should, why Rob Terry was guilty as sin giving you chapter and verse. But I fear nothing will change and explain why.
After six years, the Serious Fraud Office appears to have dropped the enquiry into the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry. This is a damning indictment of the SFO though Terry will maintain it proves his innocence. I despair. Quindell was a fraud. It lied to investors. Its accounts were bent. It engaged in crazy related party transactions which allowed a series of hoods to make tens of millions of pounds but the SFO cannot get a case together. Watchstone (WTG), which is the new name of Quindell, has just announced:
You may remember the Equities First Holdings (EFH) scandal which we did so much to expose? Fine chaps like the fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) would take out a loan at a big discount to the value of shares pledged. They did not care as they knew the shares were way overvalued. The “lender,” EFH, would dump the stock at once so locking in a profit and when the shares fell a bit more the borrower would default. Easy! How to dump your entire holding in a worthless company while saying you were not. A document filed at Companies House, below, but natch not admitted to via RNS suggests the CEO of the fraud Supply@ME Capital Alessandro Zamboni has (again) been reading the Rob Terry playbook.
Of course, there are some instances when it is appropriate to take legal action against some critic. If, for instance, the attacks are against wives and children, there is a threat of actual body harm or the allegations are just so outrageous (paedophilia for example) then a company might justifiably take action. But simply to bring in lawyers, who are always expensive, to try to silence someone who criticises a company’s business model, or its valuation, is a monumental red flag.
I start with two bits of civic duty today. I end with an appeal to those of you ( 90%+) listening who are yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks – we are now at over £19,000. Help us get past twenty please by giving HERE. Then I have a warning of “incoming” for loathsome Neill Ricketts at Versarien (VRS), discuss Trevor Brown and then at length Bidstack (BIDS) and its clear rule-breaking. Then Verditek (VDTK) – looking more and more a zero – Watchstone (WTG) – Quindell as was and the jail cell waiting for Rob Terry, today’s update on that.
His company Daniel Stewart (DAN) floated Quindell and a host of other frauds. Rob Terry became an investor in it. His brother threatened to beat me up then ran away when I popped up outside the firm’s Christmas party with a video camera. The oiks he employed abused me then went inside to hide. And as I exposed regulatory scandal after fraudulent client after financial crisis, Peter Shea eventually ordered I be threatened with a lawyer’s letter. Natch I said “see you in Court you fascist Bitchez!” There was no libel case brought!
‘Twas the night before Christmas and as the snow fell faster and faster and harder and harder outside his mock Tudor mock Georgian newly build Gloucestershire mansion, Mr Neill Ricketts was of a troubled mind. The ghost of Christmas Past was bad enough, but then he had been visited by the ghost of Christmas Present. What would happen next?
Try as he wanted, Neill could not quite rid his mind of thoughts of that ghostly apparition, the ghost of Christmas past. He tried counting sheep. But more and more of his shareholders kept running away. So he tried to count RNS statements about bogus deals and collaborations that had never amounted to anything. He started with non-deals from 2013 and this game kept him going for a good three quarters of an hour but at some point in mid 2017 he lost count. And at that very moment, the windows once again burst open and the room was filled with freezing cold air.
On Joshua’s Advent calender the shepherds go to Bethlehem. That is almost true, well a bit true as I discuss. In prior years I have penned a three part Christmas carol featuring a villain of the year: Rob Terry, Neil Woodford and Chris Oil have starred. So please nominate your villain of 2020 for this year’s opus magnus below. In the podcast I discuss the IPO of Sarah Willingham’s company Nightcap on a day when most of its bars go into tier 3. She is ‘avin’ a giraffe. There are other red flags and questions to ask. Then I look at Jubilee Metals (JLP) and Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) asking if, on AIM, anyone gives a toss about the law of the land. Finally I look at Dignity (DTY) where i retain grave concerns.
The most read non-Tom article this week is Centamin – Q3 Report and Updated Outlook: BUY – the market has overreacted (again) by Nigel Somerville (for the second week in a row) at a wonderful number one or at number five, including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
If you lost money on the £3 billion Quindell (QPP) fraud it might be better to look away now. Welcome to Hampshire Life, a publication which describes the king of the fraudsters, Rob Terry, as an “entrepreneur.” The latest issue features an article with a picture of Rob, showing that it is not just his investors who have lost a few pounds, his charming young wife Tracey and their champagne producing vineyard. Meanwhile the SFO Investigation continues…
Someone who does not have a Shareprophets subscription (so cannot see what I write or hear what I say) has been in contact to abuse me. The name rang a bell. David Dunham, Daveycaferacer. His latest missive reads:
Tom Winnifrith says folks should be in jail over the RTO prospectus and assiociated placing for Supply@ME Capital (SYME) with its bogus balance sheet, untrue claims about trading and worse. But if that was not bad enough we have share trades this week, aka hidden and illicit dumping by the CEO accompanied by blatant share ramping, which should have the FCA suspending the shares at once. I start with a chart of the price and trading volumes.
Wind back to 2016. Redcentric (RCN) overstated its cash position and understated its debts as a result of a series of accounting high jinks including a great payroll con straight out of the Rob Terry playbook which we exposed HERE. This pumped the shares up allowing CEO Frazer Fisher to make a killing as I exposed HERE. Finally, the FCA has acted but it has surely got it all wrong and its actions expose the current board to charges of gross negligence
Companies do not commit fraud, individuals commit fraud. Almost invariably in recent years this has been forgotten. Banks break the rules almost no-one is prosecuted and the banks pay a fine which hurts shareholders a bit but is regarded by the corporate as just another cost of doing business. But why should shareholders pay when they have probably suffered a direct pocket book hit from the fraud anyway? This brings us to Watchstone (WTG), the company once known as Quindell (QPP), a £3 billion fraud which I did so much to expose, getting two lawyers letters, a dedicated put-down company blog and numerous other dirty tricks against me for my efforts. Sound familiar Bidstack (BIDS) morons?
If you are an AIM listed company and want t tell lies via RNS your go to Nomad must be Bobbie Hilliam of Cannacord. Hilliam signed off on the RNS statements by Quindell that enabled Rob Terry to commit fraud. Now he is in charge of Versarien (VRS) which has also told repeated lies via RNS.
A couple of conversations last week make me convinced that the day when the SFO brings the Quindell (QPP) fraudsters to book for what was a £3 billion con is not that long away. We know that the fraudster in chief, Rob Terry, emerged terrified from his second interview with the SFO in July, as I revealed HERE, and that the SFO has been on the case for almost six years. I believe the wheels of justice are finally starting to turn and in that vein bring you a reminder of our 50 most read articles and listened to podcasts on AIM's biggest ever fraud. I should also say that new documents have fallen into my possession that the authorities do not yet have. They will get them this week AFTER I publish them here as they are explosive. Meanwhile back to the top 50. Enjoy!
Anyone who owns shares in a company that tells demonstrable porkies, via RNS, is by definition a moron. And, after events this week, that clearly includes shareholders in Iconic Labs (ICON). But they do not like the demonstrable falings of Iconic being pointed out to them and a small band of lunatics have taken to twitter to attack me.
I've broken up these lists into articles and Bearcasts for the past year so readers can get a more rounded sense of what is popular each week. But I think that I need to show you the actual, merged, top 11 for this week.
A source acquainted with the Serious Fraud Office Investigation into Quindell (QPP) now known as Watchstone(WTG) has confirmed that the fraudster in chief Rob Terry has now been interviewed by the Serious Fraud Office twice, the most recent time being in late July.
We have not heard from Equities First Holdings (EFH) for a while, but regular ShareProphets readers may remember the scandal which emerged five years ago whereby directors of AIM companies announced they were buying shares when, if fact, they were selling vast numbers of them to EFH with the right, but not the obligation, to buy them back. Such fine enterprises as Rob Terry fraud Quindell (QPP – now Watchstone), Igas (IGAS, under Andrew “piggy” Austin), Cloudbuy (CBUY), Angle (AGL), Optimal Payments (OPP) and, of course, IQE (IQE) were all dragged in. Well now Drew Nelson, CEO of IQE has done another deal with EFH – and the announcement stinks. Has the company learned nothing from last time, when all of the above companies had to restate and restate again?
Rob Terry, Jamie Nimmo, Jeff Prestridge, Neil Woodford, another pointless day of shame for the, increasingly limpdick, Financial Mail on Sunday. I discuss this plus why I do not want to come back to the UK after a chat with lovely Eleni and others here in Kambos in today's bearcast
This week is another chart, from Visual Capitalist, on commodity trends, for what it is worth. Are we in a new Supercycle?
I reflect on two sorts of fraudsters in the news, King conman Rob Terry HERE and chaps at Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) HERE. I offer a cameo of life here in Greece explaining why the economy is such a joke, discuss Versarien (VRS) its latest news, the kiss of death from Zak Mir HERE, and its valuation and also comment on Optibiotix (OPTI) and the demise of the spivs at SVS Securities
If the Quindell fraudster Rob Terry is, this morning, wondering who his roomie will be when he goes down, perhaps he may be able to discuss accounting fun and games with a member of staff from Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) which has today fessed up to the scale of its problems as it admits its days on AIM are almost over.
We know that the Serious Fraud Office investigation into the Quindell (QPP) mega fraud is well advanced. Is this a sign that it is about to get really interesting?
On Wednesday Versarien (VRS) held a 'Transport Infrastructure Technology Preview Event' for 12 'randomly' chosen investors. The whole episode stinks and the hapless Nomad, Bobbie Hilliam of Quindell infamy, now at Canaccord, should be forced to issue a statement
On May 22nd 2019 Telit Communications (TCM) issued an RNS with co broker Berenberg as one of the contacts. From the RNS of June 6 onwards Berenberg’s name has been missing from all releases. So is there, yet again, something that this company, founded by mortgage fraudster and fugitive from justice Uzi Katz, is not telling us?
In today's bearcast I comment on Quindell fraudster Rob Terry in light of my earlier artice, I look at the FRC, PWC and Redcentric (RCN), ValiRx (VAL), Plutus Powergen (PPG) and at Neil Woodford and IP Group (IPO) which might be next to unravel as the contagion spreads.
You could not make this stuff up. Watchstone (WTG), Quenron as was is trying to sue its founder, the king of the fraudsters, Rob Terry and others for breach of the share purchase agreement entered into by the Company with Mr Terry and others on 28 April 2011 in respect of the sale and purchase of shares in Watchstone Limited. But now Terry is seeking to counterclaim for £14.7 million. His claim is utterly ridiculous but will waste more of Watchstone’s dwindling cash pile.
In the dismal annual results for calendar 2018 published on May 9 Watchstone (WTG), Quindell (QPP) as was, claimed to go into great detail on the various legal cases it faces thanks to the activities of its former boss, the King of the Fraudsters, Rob Terry. Except it didn’t. On April 11 it suffered a massive blow in a C$30 million (£18 million claim if faces in Canada from Aviva. This it omits to mention in its finals but luckily I can bring you full court documents and a release from Aviva’s lawyers below….
Today sees the publication of quite abysmal results from Watchstone (WTG), the company formerly known as Quindell (QPP). It confirms that the Serious Fraud Office investigation into the former management team led by King fraudster Rob Terry is ongoing but there is also bad news for the jug eared virtue signaller Gary Lineker who trousered £5 million from selling free shares in Quenron as the company he promoted, Ingenie, is going down the pan.
As the King of the fraudsters, Rob Terry, awaits the next news from the Serious Fraud Office on the Quindell (WPP) fraud he is keeping his hand in with his new venture and its sparkling wine offering, which you can see below. Okay, Quob Park Premiere Cuvee Rose Millesime 2018 will not be ready for shiping until next year but if you order now this untested plonk will only set you back £100 a bottle rather than £200 the "target price". Just send your cheques to Mr Terry and what could possibly go wrong? Bargain!
When running Daniel Stewart (DAN) for the benefit of himself and his family, Peter Shea sent me a lawyers letter trying to stop me exposing what a crock of shit his company was, as it snuggled up to King fraudster Rob Terry. Better still his brother, also a Daniel Stewart employee as were four other family members, threatened to beat me up. So I doorstepped the Daniel Stewart Christmas Party - the brother hid inside the building. Congratulations Mr Shea & your vile family, you have met the Sheriff of AIM.
The Mail on Sunday and its freebie loving Personal Finance Editor Jeff Prestridge are promoting a new innovative company in telematics and insurance where the virtue signalling crisp salesman Gary Lineker is a brand ambassador and shareholder. Among Ticker’s named clients is Ingenie.. hang on does that ring a bell?
The top ten most-read stories this week, the most popular Bearcasts this week, plus a bonus chart: World Stock Markets: 1899 v 2019.
I consider what Rob Terry is doing now as I contemplate the latest threat to Watchstone Group (WTG), Quindell (QPP) as was. I look back on a few other fraud busting successes but view them as fairly irrelevant. I am more proud of my work for Woodlarks and, in that vein, again urge you to sponsor Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE. I consider DeepMatter (DMTR), Audioboom (BOOM), Centamin (CEY), Yourgene (YGEN), Big Sofa (BST), I3 Energy (I3E) and Kavango (KAV)
More than a week after we exposed the coming death of Daniel Stewart & Company the weekend press has finally woken up and is reporting how it went into administration on Thursday. But something bigger happened on Thursday. Daniel Stewart, c/o former boss Adam Wilson is coming back to the market via a standard listing. Let me explain with the documents below..
Following my revelations yesterday the deadwood press have their knives out for Daniel Stewart (DAN) today. Maybe the CEO's younger broker did not threaten tol beat them up and they did not get fascist lawyers letters for exposing this POS, but the firm is almost friendless as it prepares for administration. I say almost...
When the boss’s younger brother threatens to “beat up Tom Winnifrith because of the articles he wrote,” when you get into bed with disgraced king fraudster Rob Terry and then send Tom Winnifrith fascist lawyers letters you know that Mr Karma is going to get you sooner or later. You are either on the side of the fraudsters or you support the fraudbusters and that brings us to Daniel Stewart (DAN).
Last week’s release of half year results from Zafar Karim’s personal plaything (sorry, listed entity) 8 Peaks Group (8PG) provided much amusement here at Karma Towers. Where to start?
AIM-listed former Rob Terry favouorite busted flush Imaginatik (IMTK) yesterday announced another placing, following hard on the heels of the last bailout and oversubscribed open offer of last month. I was very critical of the previous fundraise because is still, as far as I could see, left the company on the edge of insolvency. But with anther £250,000 in the kitty – and a contract also announced yesterday, is it time to change my stance of keep well away?
AIM-listed former Rob Terry favourite Imaginatek (IMTK) published its half year results to the end of September this morning – what a dog’s breakfast! Of course, the majority of the period was under the old management so as much as I would like to point the finger at new CEO Angus Forrest, that would be grossly unfair. Indeed, judging by the balance sheet he’s done very well to have kept the grim reaper at bay – and he nearly pulled off a dream proposal to bring the very saintly Vin Murria in….but that fell apart. The shares as I write are up just 10% at 1.375p in the middle, having peaked earlier in the day at 2.25p in an initial burst of enthusiasm. It looks to me like the market has taken fright at the balance sheet.
Once again, I stand awed that great work by ShareProphets on identifying bad eggs is largely ignored by the mainstream media, in this case MySquar. It's no wonder that Rob Terry has the new to saddle up with Quindell 2.0.
As BBC license fee payers, you will be truly delighted to see how the vast pay cheque given to Gary Lineker is being spent. You may remember that the crisp salesman was appointed as brand ambassador to Ingenie, part of the Quindell (QPP) fraud, now under SFO investigation as the UK’s largest stockmarket swindle for 30 years. Lineker was given millions of pounds of free shares in Quindell which he sold onto poor investors who lost almost everything - having said he'd be a buyer. Well it worked before…
I have got more chance of shagging Cheryl Cole than Rob Terry has of achieving a £1 billion flotation of his latest fraud but let us humour the old criminal and examine his plans for OS3 Digital Limited, formerly Knob Park Estate.
Oh dear. Oh Dear. I pointed out that MySquar (MYSQ) had lied and committed fraud numerous times – notably with the 31 July 2017 placing – but Nomad SP Angel was happy to turn a blind eye and bank its retainers. Marcus Stuttard and the keystone cops at AIM Regulation were given specific warnings but did nothing. Now the whole thing has blown up so who looks like a frigging clown now Marcus? Is it Tom Winnifrith, the real Sheriff of AIM, or Marcus Stuttard, a man who is meant to regulate but instead turns a blind eye to blatant fraud, a useless not fit for purpose fucking poltroon?
As avid readers of ShareProphets will know, we have been bearish on Imaginatik (IMTK) for ever – firstly for being a duff business, secondly for being a Rob Terry of Quindell infamy stock market darling and more recently because it was going to run out of cash. Despite all that, we almost tipped it as a short term play when the saintly Vin Murria was announced to be considering getting involved but were scared off big time by the share price reaction (the stock shot through the roof) and advised many times that readers give it a wide berth, partly because they would be over-paying and partly because Vin Murria could walk.
AIM-listed former rob Terry darling Imaginatik (IMTK) has announced that the deal to bring in Vin Murria is all off. The Nomad, finnCap, is – as it promised it would – resigning as from the end of today and the shares have collapsed by (so far) 76%. What’s not to like?
The former Quindell of Rob Terry infamy, Watchstone Group (WTG) has announced results for the first half of 2018, including on outlook “we are making good progress in developing the underlying quality of our businesses and their long term value whilst simultaneously resolving the group's legacy matters as efficiently as possible. We remain confident of a satisfactory ultimate outcome for our shareholders”. Hmmm…
AIM-listed former Rob Terry stockmarket darling Imaginatek (IMTK) has been on a glorious run since it first emerged that Vin Murria might take the helm and use it as her new vehicle. Of course, that is really good news for Vin Murria walks on water, but 10p to buy? Surely you’re ‘avin’ a giraffe!
Facing a raft of criminal charges for not paying her employees, Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer MBE has now refused to attend five court hearings and indeed has fled the island for good to avoid the Police who are now charged by the Courts with locating her. I can reveal that it is about to get a lot worse for Vince Cable’s favourite lying fraudster as new criminal charges are brought.
In the main bearcast of the day I start by asking what payoff disgraced Dave Whitby got at worthless insolvent POS Andalas (ADL)? And were mugs who backed the latest placing told where much of their cash was going ( i.e. to Whitby). Feel free to contact me if you are an Andalas owning mug. The fat Lady arrives at Nighthawk (HAWK) and looks to be in the wings at Nature Group (NGR) while new problems emerge at Imaginatik (IMTK) - a former Rob Terry fave but I speculate on bigger worries that the Quindell fraudster faces - and at Management Consulting (MMC). I think the fat Lady may well also have an appointment with Widecells Group ( WDC) shortly. I comment on 4 reasons why Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) shares may be falling and on looming results at Optibiotix (OPTI), where we own shares.
Oh well I had not had a take down lawyers letter for at least a few weeks so welcome back to England Mr Winnifrith. The deadline for voting is midnight Wednesday as I shall be responding on Thursday. So who do you think wants to gag the Sheriff of AIM? Vote now:
I had to laugh at the basket case that is the stockbroker Daniel Stewart as it finally came out with the accounts for its trading subsidiary, Daniel Stewart & Co (DSAC), for the year to 31 March 2016, not just as it shows how worthless Rob Terry’s holding is but also, being such a quality outfit, it accidentally provided much more information than it intended to. It is worth taking a look before Daniel Stewart corrects it.
Having on 1st February announced “Strategic review including formal sale process”, Imaginatik (IMTK) now updates…
ADVFN (AFN) has today published its list of big advertisers on its website, oops I meant to say its awards for outstanding contributions to financial services. As ever I take the list of winners with the gravity that is merited. They really are the cornerstone of the financial calendar these days. But one fact screams out at me: BrokerMan Dan Levi was on a hat-trick as share blogger of the year - surely he had the title in the bank. But he's been robbed.
I know that MySquar (MYSQ) prefers to leak speculation and innuendo as news via the fraudsters poodle journalist of choice, Rob Terry's pal Ben Harrington, but perhaps the holocaust denying fraudsters might consider an RNS PDQ!
In today's bearcast I ponder why on days like this I bother. I look at Big Sofa (BST) shares in which, I am delighted to say, we own. I look at Versarien (VRS) owning morons at former Rob Terry fave Imaginatik (IMTK), for strategic review read we are fecked, at SIG (SHI) and at Image Scan (DOG). PS Ben Turner calls me to say we did not fire him. As I said Alzheimers. I am happy to stand corrected.
Yesterday Telit (TCM) got tame journalist Ben Harrington to leak that it had received bids for its only asset of value its auto division. That has forced a statement which is, of course, all spin. Here is the ShareProphets translation service. Our comments are in bold.
Ben Harrington is the go to journalist if you are a fraudster who wants to leak news and get a positive spin on it, just ask Rob Terry or the apologists for genocide and securities fraudsters at MySquar. So natch Telit (TCM) has asked him to leak news of the possible sale of its crown jewels , itts aiuto division. Hmmmm.
For those who think Rob Terry,, the king of the fraudsters, has got away with the £3 billion Quindell (QPP) scam, there was confirmation today that the Serious Fraud Investigation continues. Actually you can see that on the SFO's website but that Watchstone (WTG) - Quenron wi8th a face lift - confirmed it suggests it is still co-operating. Of course it is. Its new managers loathe the criminal Terry. I do expect arrests this year. The other news - a lack of profits warning and again this is Terry's mess.
The Financial Reporting Council has today fined audit firm ArrandCo, formerly known as RSM Tenon, £1 million ( reduced by 30% for co-operating) and audit partner Jeremy Filley £80,000 ( reduced to £56,000) for allowing the fraud Quindell (QPP) to publish fraudulent 2011 accounts. No doubt Snot Gobbler Dan McCrum at the FT is again about to produce a timeline taking credit for this but the FRC has stated explicitly that it widened its enquiries to include the 2011 accounts only because of specific allegation raised by me as you can see HERE. These fines are down to my work, not that the deadwood press will ever acknowledge that. So how did Rob Terry and his associated in the Quenron gang, cook the books with the help of Filley and RSM Tenon.
Yesterday I asked if serial self-promoter Julie Meyer was a bullshitter as she spun the news of the administration of her flagship Ariadne Capital vehicle. Oddly I have been besieged by folks seeking to offer a steer about this member of the Great & the Good. Let's start at Glassdor.com - where employees post reviews of what it is like working for a company. Ho Ho Ho - can you smell the rat?
I start with the issue that has been bugging me all week, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I review a number of villains like Rob Terry, MySquar's holocaust denying fraudster scumbag of a CEO Schaer & also the China team at Pinsent Masons and look at what 2018 has in store for them. I ask very serious questions indeed of the compliance department at Woodford Capital as Cynical Bear continues to take Neil Woodford apart. My experience as a failed fund manager gives me some insight into the mess I think Nomates is now in. I look at the shocking behaviour of London Capital (LCG) and Real Good Food (RGD) on Friday. Tosserrs. And, like Malcolm, I have a Christmas message for you all and send you all my best wishes. That is unless you are Woodford, Terry etc
Normally the king of the fraudsters, Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) infamy cannot keep quiet. He is desperate to tell us all about new disruptive developments at his new Ponzi, Quob Park. But as you can see below, the great man's Knob Park blog has been silent for almost three months. Perhaps there is something else on his mind?
I stiill read the occassional comment and email that wonders why the economics of advertising on a website doesn't work - advertising pays for ITV and the Evening Standard, both of which are paying real salaries to real staff.
This is a small side issue in terms of the greater Quindell (QPP) fraud which will, in due course , see Rob Terry and others go to jail but this week Watchstone Group (WTG) as Quenron is now known suffered a minor setback against Terry and others. We publish the ruling in full below...
Watchstone Group (WTG) has filed its High Court defence against Slater & Gordon's £649 million claim against it for having been sold the fraud that was Quindell Legal Services (QLS). I must admit it makes for impressive reading and is robust. The one person for whom it makes utterly grim reading is the King of the fraudsters Rob Terry.
In its most recent statement Watchstone (WTG) group suggested that the potential class action against it from folks who lost cash as a result of frauds orchestrated by Rob Terry in the Quindell (QPP) era was minimal. Au contraire. The potential liability was estimated at £9 million but the number of claimants has more than doubled to 1,100 according to a letter sent to claimants which they have been told they must not pass on under threat of legal action. Luckily we have the Winnileaks service.
It has taken two years but two former bosses of Afren (AFR) will tomorrow be charged with fraud. Watch out Rob Terry your time will come too. Well done the Serious Fraud Office.
Oh dear me, how long is the shadow caused by the king of the fraudsters Rob Terry and his Quenron (QPP) monster? Slater & Gordon (SGH) the Aussie law firm that bought 94% of Terry's assets in 2015 has now officially been brought to its knees with the board all fired, and shareholders almost wiped out, as part of the end game announced yesterday in Oz.
Relief for Telit (TCM) bulls came at 4.05 PM Monday with news that Davide Serra had bought 1.6 million shares in Telit last week taking his holding from sub 3 to 4%. He only submitted his TR1 after the weekend but paying 160p-180p AFTER we exposed the, then, CEO Oozi cats as the Boston fraudster he clearly knew better than we did. But where did that name Davide Serra ring a bell?
It is almost three years since the Equities First Holdings story hit the headlines with the deal signed up with by Rob Terry et al at what was then called Quindell – now Watchstone (WTG) – whereby the sale of shares via a non-recourse sell and buyback deal was dressed up as a director share purchase.
In five year time, the king of the fraudsters, Rob Terry of The Innovation Group and Quindell (QPP) infamy says he will be floating his latest ponzi, Quob Park Estate for $1 billion. Bollocks. There is more chance of me getting lucky with the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders squad within the next 48 hours. As the SFO investigation into the £3 billion Quenron fraud ratchets up a gear, the only thing Rob Terry will be doing in five years time is praying that his next Roomie at Ford Open doesn't have a taste for ugly older men.
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.
Suffice to say the big winners from this transaction are the old gang, the associates of the King of the fraudsters Robert Simon Terry, not shareholders in Watchstone (WTG), Quindell (QPP) as was. But its remiss of the new team at Quenron not to keep you updated. So let me assist.
Redcentric (RCN) CEO Fraser Fisher is still in place despite his company having admitted to having grossly overstated its 2016 accounts, something that pushed up the shares allowing him to make a killing dumping stock a year ago. The FCA is investigating this matter as are other agencies which almost certainly means the Serious Fraud Office. So far the fall guy has been the ex FD. But I can now demonstrate that Fraser must have been persoinally aware of at least one major fraud, a type of con the King of the fraudsters, Mr Rob Terry, also pulled off at Quindell and The Innovation Group.
I guess if you write for a website that makes the Official Jimmy Saville Fan Club website seem well read and popular, it forces one to also post on Bulletin Boards in order that your words of wisdom/attempts to ramp your flagging portfolio reach an audience of more than three men and a dog. Speaking of dogs - Watchstone (WTG) is stock which bear raider turned Bulletin Board Moron Evil Knievil has long argued is worth 500p. The shares are now 140p ( and falling) after yesterday's massive revelations from me HERE.
Slater & Gordon (SGH) spunked £649 million on buying the worthless, fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) in 2015, a deal that has seen its shareholders suffer a 99% wipeout. It has now filed a UK High Court claim against Watchstone (WTG), Quenron as was for £637 million and we have obtained the papers and, in a major scoop, publish the Claim in full below.
A blast from the past yesterday as I note that the Singapore-based investor, Epsilon Investments, has acquired 10 million shares in Toople (TOOP). As Epsilon’s history shows, it really is the modern day patron saint of lost causes, AIM’s very own St Jude; although I wonder if it recently had a very narrow escape.
Oh boy this is going to be fun. It is one of those battles where you want both sides to lose badly. Like Germany vs Argentina at football or a ratings war between Jonathan Ross and Simon Cowell. But Slater & Gordon (SGH) has now formally served Watchstone (WTG) with High Court proceedings claiming breach of warranty and/or fraudulent misrepresentation for a total amount of up to £637 million plus interest. Watchstone says it will defend this robustly. Boy this will be fun.
It was a keen competition this week. But we have found a winner.
This week's sponsor, serial company founder Rob Terry, has been in the news this past week over a lawsuit brought by Aussie legal poltroons Slater & Gorden claiming to be deceived over the legal division that they bought from Quindell. Slater & Gordon will probably do just fine unless Quindell (QPP) or Watchstone (WTG) as it is called these days, points out ShareProphets sent S&G a docket of articles before the purchase went through. Anything to help the boys and girls at Quindell!
The original caption on this photo tweeted by Quob Park Estate says "Great team dinner in Monaco, prior to TM Forum LIVE, looking forward to meeting with key clients while here". Surely this can be improved. The deadline is midnight tonight. Mr Terry is second from the left next to his charming other half.
Oh dear, oh dear, the net is closing in on Roberty Simon Terry, the man behind the UK's biggest stockmarket fraud Quindell. Aussie Poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) which has almost bankrupted itself after paying £649 million for most of the worthless Quindell businesses from what is now Watchstone Group (WTG) has made an announcement.
More details of how Aussie poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) is suing Watchstone (WTG), Quenron (QPP) as was, for £600 million have emerged in the Aussie press. And for Britain's biggest fraudster of the past 30 years, already under SFO investigation, it is not good news. And top of the morning it is to you Robert Simon Terry.
Oh dear, the curse of wretched Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry strikes again. Slater & Gordon (SGH), the Aussie poltroons driven to the point of bankruptcy because it bought worthless assets from Quenron says it is to launch a claim for £600 million ( the amount it paid) against Quindell - now renamed Watchstone Group (WTG). Slater claims that when it bought the assets it was a victim of "fraudulent misrepresentation." Oh Dear.
Fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) may have been booted off the AIM Casino but in the few months before insolvency the comedy continues. The company has held an AGM the highlight of which was news that the 2 NEDS Tony Reeves and Jerry Bereika have resigned. Lyin' Amit Ben Haim says that the a search for new directors with the requisite skills to match the Company’s future requirements is underway. Hmmm what would that skillset be?
The future of ShareProphets as an independent critic of the London Stock Exchange has come into question after a unexpected declaration of ownership change to Quindell's Rob Terry, as declared by an official government agency.
The Serious Fraud Office investigations into the Quindell (QPP) fraud and the fraudster in chief Rob Terry continue but it seems that the old criminal and future jailbird has not changed his mendacious ways. He is now in a spot of bother with the consulting giant Accenture,
On Monday I started a series in which I gave clear reasons why JackpotJoy (JPJ) was an obvious short. Now let us mover on and have a look at the management and their history in commerce. I am sure that there is nothing to read into it but Andrew McIver sat on the Board of Daniel Stewart and seems to be pals with our dear friend the king of the fraudsters, Mr Rob Terry
There are some folks who think that the failure of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to arrest king fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell means that Mr 2+2 can = 5 is off the hook. Think again. A source has been in touch.
When Aussie Poltroons Slater & Gordon spunked £649 million to buy the worthless fraudulent assets of Quindell (QPP) circa two years ago its shares were A$8. They have crashed another 30% today to just 7 cents putting S&G in the 99% club. The signs are growing that the end is not just 90 days away (when it must conclude a debt for equity deal with its banks) but perhaps rather sooner.
Oh dear. Oh dear. Interim numbers from Aussie law poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) are out today and are dismal. The company now has just 90 days to cut a deal with its bankers or it is lights out and any deal will see shareholders wiped out. The shares - A$8 when it spunked £649 million to buy Quindell's (QPP) fraudulent assets - are now just 12 cents. Where's the ouzo?
Oh dear, oh dear. This is not going to make the debt for equity talks Slater & Gordon (SGH) is engaged in to stave off bankruptcy any easier. The Government has published proposals which will screw its UK personal claims business, effectively making it worthless.
I am delighted to say that the snake oil salesman Darren Winters, slammed by the ASA for telling blatant lies as we revealed HERE last week, has decided not to appeal against his latest court room thrashing by one of his victims, a case we funded. Given the Judge's damning verdict in Snake Oil vs Mr O, that was a wise call by the Charlatan. But even now he is trying to swindle us out of 40p. Think again Darren and your frightful wife Tatjana, the Foxy Legals are on the case.
I have flagged up many times before that the Hubio (formerly known as the fraud Himex) and Ingenie operations in Canada faced serious issues because they had simply failed to deliver product as promised to major customers such as Aviva. Now it is out in the open with writs flying both ways. Oh dear...this is not going to end well for Watchstone (WTG), the legacy of fraudster Rob Terry strikes again.
Oh dear. Oh Dear. Another trading statement from Aussie law poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) and it is grim all round. The shares - A$8 when the fraudulent businesses of Quindell (QPP) were bought - are now 20 cents. And they will go far lower IF a debt for equity swap is agreed and that is the best case scenario. The Rob Terry Quenron businesses are now shown as worthless, another day of V for Vendetta, Vengeance and Vindication for the Sheriff of AIM. Crack out the ouzo and make mine a large one!
Criminal Aidan Earley says thatmy work destroys great British Companies. That is what Rob Terry used to say too. What is the difference between those two fraudsters? About £50 million and so far only one has served time. I discuss Winnileaks triumphs today on Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Strat Aero (AERO) and why they vindicated my work so much. Then I look at BT (BT.A), Rosslyn Data (RDT), Cloudtag (CTAG), Sunrise Resources (SRES) and LGO Energy (LGO).
A couple of interesting filings on Companies House leave me wondering whether former AIM-cesspit posterboy Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN) is being prepared for a quiet execution. It was clear from the (stunningly) late-filed 2015 Accounts that is was in serious trouble, and last year a debenture over the parent seemed to have morphed into a debenture over its subsidiary, Daniel Stewart & Co plc. Now the previously wholly-owned subsidiary, which contains the trading business, seems to have been raising money on its own account.
One of the comments made by bulletin board/Twitter morons that I always find mystifying is: "Oh, you guys are just trying to get page views."
Oh joy upon joy, the accounts of ex-AIM Cesspit posterboy Daniel Stewart Securities plc and its subsidiary Daniel Stewart & Co plc have been published. As plcs they should have filed accounts to Companies House for the year to 31 March 2015 by the end of September that year, so the date stamp of Companies House of 22 December 2016 means that they were filed almost a year and three months late. But what joys there are to be had!
This podcast follows on from A-E HERE, F-J HERE, and K-O HERE. It is perhaps my longest podcast for many moons but are you surprised? Think about what I cover: P is for Potash - as in African (AFPO), Q is for Quindell (QPP), R is for Revenue Recognition as in Redcentric (RCN) and Servision (SEV), S is not for smear (as in Citigate Dewe Rogerson you total and utter bastards) or Strat Aero although both are mentioned but for Sam Antar and T is for Terry as in Rob,
It was the night before Christmas and Roland "Fatty" Cornish, a man widely known as the worst Nomad on the AIM casino staggered across the threshold of his £3 million luxury mansion in Chiswick. For the sake of Mrs Cornish he pretended that the stagger was because his chubby little arms were full of presents. The reality was that he had just enjoyed his final meal of the year at his favourite City restaurant, le Corchon Évitement fiscal.
The week that follows Christmas Day is the slowest of the year on ShareProphets reader views - but we'll still be here. The two weeks before Christmas always seem to be some of the highest rated weeks. I don't know whether is some sort of reality avoidance action or ShareProphets readers are actual embodiments of Scrooge - a personal hero on Tom's as he has explained today HERE.
Yesterday, in the late afteroon, Worthington (WRN) promoter Aiden Earley emailed to say that as a result of a bearcast of 4 December he was taking legal action against me. Having relistened to that bearcast HERE he was talking cock. But that was just a pretence, for earlier that day Earley had launched a fantastic website threatening to destroy me which has delighted Bulletin Board morons who invest in frauds. Here are some of the cracking tweets I have received:
When Google receives a notice asking it to remove a link to a website, if it doesn't feel like litigating it, it0 removes the link and sends a copy of the notice to LumenDatabase.org. Often, it is used by copyright holders to prevent people from downloading pirate copies of books, films, or music, as in this case where the publisher of Tom Winnifrith Sr's must read book, Fallen Women of the 19th Century, asked for links to be removed.
Oh what tangled webs we weave, eh Mr Terry? Not distracted by the ongoing Serious Fraud Office investigation that will see him end up in jail, Rob Terry has a new venture. Natch it is one based on an old fraud but that probably won't deter some folks.
This is beyond satire. On Friday night, as it does every night, the UKLA published via RNS its list of companies subject to potential bids and guess what? Worthington is still there. Worthington as in the company where an administrator has now been appointed and a first gazette published? Yes that is the one. But it gets better.
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?
The price for buying the fraud that was Quindell (QPP) will be the death of Slater & Gordon (SGH). When its shares do eventually hit zero, or near as damn it, investors should remember that it was not just Aussie poltroons such as Andrew Grech to blame but also the fraudster in chief Rob Terry. And the shares will hit nil. If you are in any doubt look at the debt.
I am trying to teach my six week old son Joshua a few words for when he meets my wife's mad lefty friends. Naturally "Daddy" is first since this household is not sexist. Then, in view of the US election, I was having a go at the phrase "lock her up!!". That brings me to yesterday's odd one out contest. As you can see HERE, there were a few deluded liberals who tried to dodge the issue. However most of you were on the right lines ...
A couple of days ago I noted how the lamentable London Evening Standard had lifted a cynical bear story from five days previously without attribution and claimed it as its own breaking news. But the Standard is not the only lazy worthless paper on Fleet Street. We now have an even more blatant pinch and this time it is the Daily Telegraph in the dock. No wonder sales of MSM publications are plunging if they run stories that were reported elsewhere on September 27 as their own breaking news on 29 October? This is the tale of Quindell fraudster Rob Terry and his new vineyard funded by the Quob park ponzi.
Equities First Holdings is back. You remember those chaps who "borrowed" shares from folks like Andrew Austin at IGAS, fraudster Rob Terry at Quindell (QPP) and Ronald Duncan at Cloudbuy (CBUY). Shares in all three companies crashed and all defaulted on the loans so completing what was in effect a hidden share sale. After almost two years the disgraced shysters of EFH are back and this time it is Edi Truell of Tungsten (TUNG) infamy who is dumping shares but wants to hide the fact.
Remember when the fraudster Rob Terry told his deluded followers that shares in Daniel Stewart (DAN) were worth 10p each. In those days they were listed on AIM but Terry reckoned that they could be worth even more when delisted. Hmmmm. Now slung off AIM things seem to be going from bad to worse.
Don't break it to the millennial generation but Christmas is actually about a bloke called Jesus not Santa Claus. None the less I reckon that I have been a pretty good boy this year and so I have written to Santa, who like firm contracts for African Potash really does exist, with a short list of what this stockmarket geek wants for Christmas. Here goes...
I see the nutters on Twitter going on about as the share price of some company or other that ShareProphets investigates continues to rise, we're obviously idiots who don't know how to do the only important thing in life - fill yer boots.
In this bearcast I refer to my article on the Trump & Clinton debate overnight and what it means HERE and the latest shocking expose of Quindell fraudster Rob Terry HERE. I warn about bad things happening in Euro land and the worst of tem all is Deutsche Bank. There is a Radio 4 programme tonight on AIM fraud at 8 PM. I am not involved but some fine upstanding members of the community are. that is irony in case the loser Roger Lawson thinks I have forgiven him and ShareSoc for defending the blinkx law breakers by smearing me and Ben Edelman.Elsewhere I look at the role of certain NEDS who are Tim not so nice but fucking dim. I cover the Cloudtag (CTAG) scam, Northern Petroleum (NOP) - placing ahoy _ and Imaginatik (IMTK) as well as China fraud Jiasen (JSI)
The annual report from Quob Park Estate, the new ponzi scheme of Quindell fraudster Rob Terry is out and is a cornucopia of his best tricks of greed and accounting fraud. It is a delight. Leopards do not change their spots.
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.
I look at the SFO decision on Tesco (TSCO) and examine what exactly it means for the fraudsters such as Rob Terry & Jon Stretton Knowles of Quindell who are now under investigation. And where does it leave smaller AIM listed frauds such as African Potash (AFPO), Cloudtag (CTAG) and Eden Research (EDEN). Then I look at the demise of crowdfunded new media darling of fuckwit millennials - Pronto. This is a massive scandal if anyone cared to look. Did anyone backing the funding back in June of this year know the company was already bust? Companies house shows that is the case HERE. Does crowdfunder Seedrs feel no responsibility to flag up such matters? There are also read acrosses to listed tech plays such as Clouldtag to consider.
Following the example set by Paul Warwick the chairman of worthless penny stock Andalas (ADL) in starting a blog, Sir Benjamin Dover of AIM listed Global Mining Endeavours has decided to follow suit and like Paul promises to be Candid in his approach. Blog number twelve....
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has today charged three individuals, Carl Rogberg, 49, Christopher Bush, 50, and John Scouler, 48, with one count of Fraud by Abuse of Position, contrary to section 1 and 4 of the Fraud Act 2006 and one count of False Accounting contrary to s17 Theft Act 1968. These are the first charges brought against folks at Tesco (TSCO) for cooking its books. The timescale is fascinating for those interested in the fate of Rob Terry and the other Quenron fraudsters...
Hooray! The ShareProphets Translation Service, refreshed after its nice summer holiday in a swanky London penthouse suite with plenty of coke and hookers, is back. And what better way for it to get back to work than to take a look at the latest blog from fraudster Rob Terry’s Quob Park Estate – which has now admitted that it is going to write down its investment in former AIM Cesspit poster-boy Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN). So much for 10p a share, ho ho ho - the crocodile tears are flowing at ShareProphets Towers.
This is not quite what Slater & Gordon (SGH) promised its shareholders when buying the fraud Quindell (QPP) in early 2015 - today there was a pre results profits warning. The management tried to polish it up but a turd is a turd however one views it.
Say what you like about fraudster Rob Terry, the man is a comedy genius. I am sure that when he does get sent to prison he will be providing entertainment for his fellow inmates in all sorts of ways. But away from the shower block one way will be as a comedian. Terry's latest commentary on the "blog" of his new ponzi, Quob Park Estate is a comedy classic.
AIM-listed Servision (SEV) has announced the appointement of a new NED. If that is supposed to reassure in the face of Tom Winnifrith's complaint to the FRC over the "interesting" accounting going on at the company then the CV of new appointment Mr Anthony Legge is just jaw-dropping.
The FCA is set to fine Cenkos over the Quindell fraud, the FRC has thanked me as it panned Quindell for fraud, and the SFO is making good progress on the Quindell fraud yet some morons still blame me for the penury they suffer as a result of ignoring our warnings that Quenron was a fraud. These fools really do believe that Rob Terry was a good guy and, unbelievably, are still trying to put me out of business. Step forward a troll on the ADVFN Asylum posting crap under the nom de plume NickyName.
The most excellent BestInvest has today published its annual "Spot the Dog" Review of British based fund managers and - by value - around half of the cash invested in funds it terms dogs sits at M&G. And the worst fund manager among those managing UK equities only is Tom Dobell at M&G, the man who likes chucking other people's money at fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell over and over again. Among the heroes is, naturally Terry Smith of Fundsmith, the best performer in the "global" category. The full listings of dogs in each sector is fascinating. Well done Dobell, you are, if nothing else, consistent. That is to say consistently useless.
Part of the Knob Park Group of ponzis run by Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry, before he is put on trial and sent to prison, Quob Park Solutions has recently published what are the most bonkers set of accounts in Christendom.
Sky News claims to have a source who says that Nomad and broker Cenkos (CNKS) is to be fined £700,000 by the FCA for its lamentable failings in the Quindell (QPP) fraud - Cenkos has now admiited that a probe is underway. Whilst I see this as another moment of vindication for my work in exposing that fraud it is simply not enough. The FCA is telling the City's banksters that turning a blind eye to white collar crime does pay. Its coke and hookers all round if this is the best that the FCA can do.
Even the Quindell fraudster Rob Terry would have been ashamed of this nonsense. Yesterday I flagged up how the latest ramptastic RNS from FastForward (FFWD) was sheer bollocks in the made up numbers department. Today the company has responded with an explanation which will have you pissing yourself. It is so utterly mad that the company's Nomad must surely be considering its position (or have no shame). This is sheer comedy.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear., if my father had not drunk it all, it would be another ouzo moment for the Sheriff of AIM with news that Ingenie Canada is no more. We have been warning for ages that the Toronto based frauds of Rob Terry were falling apart but Watchstone Group (WTG), the rebranded Quindell has been in denial. There you go.
Rob Terry darling, AIM-listed Imaginatik (IMTK) has seen its shares slide by 32% (last seen) this morning, yet there has been no news issued by the company since 28 June when it was announced that Rob Terry’s Quob Park Estate had seen its holding reduced to almost 5%. Surely a statement is needed to explain the share price movement.
Shares in former AIM Cesspit poster-boy Daniel Stewart Securities plc (DAN) were booted off the exchange back on 22 Jan 2016. That must have been a tad galling for Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry and his henchmen at Quob Park Estate Ltd, which had previously suggesting that there was upside to 10p a share on offer. Having been suspended in October 2015 for failing to publish accounts (still outstanding, by the way), the loss of Beaumont Cornish as Nomad in December put the final nail in the coffin.
As predicted HERE there was a blooodbath at the Toronto offices of Watchstone (WTG) yesterday but it could be worse still....
The remaining staff at the Hubio operations encompassing Iter8 in Toronto have been called to a "Town Hall" meeting at 11 AM Canadian time today so by the time their hear of their fate it will be after hours UK so any admission of what has gone on will be on 23rd June, a great day to bury bad news.
It is no shock that the Rob Terry bar of soap caption contest produced a flurry of entries as you can see here which focussed in on a similar theme. Terry knows all about folks getting an unexpected shafting does he not? Soon he will find out that the Good Lord was right after all and that it is indeed better to give than to receive. Anyhow the winning caption is:
I prepare for a celebration lunch with lefties in the grim North. Woe is me. But my mind wanders to what else was happening in 1966? I am really not on the ball today. Then I ask how can we say that investors are protected if fraudster Rob Terry can raise cash for his Knob Park ponzi via crowdfunding? Then I answer the question in today's Daily Mail (a loathsome rag) - in a low interest rate era should you pay off your mortgage?
It appears that the answer to that question is yes. Terry has not only said he is going to do it but he has told the FCA how he is going to do it. And the chocolate teapots appear happy to let this continue. It is bad enough that Terry boasts that he made in excess of £30 million from the Quindell fraud, but it seems in Britain he can carry on stealing and no-one cares.
You could not make this up but fraudster Rob Terry is getting into crowdfunding working alongside Peter Shea, the boss of disgraced ex AIM Casino listed China fraud specialist Daniel Stewart (DAN). It was, of course, Daniel Cesspit that listed Quindell on a fraudulent prospectus and signed off of the fraudulent deals with TMC Southern, that conjured up entirely fictitious profits for Quenron in 2011. The SFO will sooner or later arrest Terry and he's going to jail, but it seems as if Shea is determined to implicate himself by association.
Watchstone (WTG), Quindell as was, has today admitted to the full scale of the Himex fraud - the Hassan Sadiq Rob Terry con at the heart of Quindell - full details are HERE. In light of this please supply suitable captions, in the comments section below, for the picture below in honour of Robert Simon Terry. Deadline: midnight Sunday.
With the Serious Fraud Office closing in on Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry and his gang, the round up of suspects is going to be made easier by the way more and more of them are pitching up at Rob's new ponzi, Knob Park. The latest gang member to join is Tim Scurry, a Canadian now embarking on his 4th venture with Terry.
Recording in Kalamata, I have one last day in sunny Greece before I head back to the UK for five days of family time. Boo hiss. I start with another reminder of how thick some AIM folk are - London Capital (LCG). Then I look at the different way that private and public businesses account for profits running through how Sam Antar cooked the books at Crazy Eddie's. That makes me reflect on accruals causing me to examing the balance sheet of Lombard Risk (LRM) as Phil "InterX" Crawford drives it onto the rocks and also how Robert Simon Terry accounted for industrial deafness, something that will send him to gaol.
Himex was the biggest single acquisition fraud perpetrated by Rob Terry at Quindell (QPP) and today the scale of that £100 million plus fraud has been laid bare as the re-branded Watchstone (WTG) has published 2015 results. These show that statements made by new management with 2014 results were rash reckless and misleading but also that the Serious Fraud Office is still going after Terry and his cabal.
A curious filing has appeared at Companies House with regard to our dear friends at Daniel Stewart (DAN), the formerly AIM-listed company which used to be a Nomad, used to have a Nomad and which is still a Broker. Back in January a debenture in favour of the mysterious Asian outfit Epsilon appeared at Companies House: it seems that the parent company had entered into an arrangement with its largest shareholder in return for a charge over all its assets, as was covered at the time by Tom Winnifrith. Now we appear to have one covering all the assets of the only operating subsidiary.
Having fallen back towards 3p following a couple of RNS announcements earlier this week, shares in Imaginatik (IMTK) are currently on the rise again. With this coming after the shares had slumped to sub 2p by the start of April before soaring beyond 5p by the commencement of May, the following reviews the goings-on here…
I would like to say that Quindell (QPP) fraudster Rob Terry has Time on his hands but I imagine that using the words Time & Rob Terry in the same sentence might make him feel uncomfortable. Anyhow I am delighted to see that his new ponzi, Knob Park has at least, well in fact just, one fan.
Not only did I get into the AGM of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) but in response to one of my two questions chairman Donald Brydon fessed up to being a reader of my work, saying how glad he was that I had got in this year. And as I chatted to my new best friend afterwards up wandered the bogus Sheriff, Marcus Stuttard, head of the oxymorons at AIM Regulation and guess what?...He's a reader too.
I now conclude my four part series on Rob Terry's remarkable interview with the Sunday Telegraph with the most shocking part, his denial of all wrongdoing, off all known facts. Whatever his actual mental state, Terry sounds like a psychopath.
I start this podcast with a bit of a reflection on one or two excellent pieces this weekend notably my own stuff on African Potash (AFPO) and the Horse Hill ramp but also the cracking piece today by Cynical Bear on Fast Forward (FFWD). In the bearcast I also look at a stack more Brexit lies as well as discussing why Rob Terry has broken cover and where the SFO is with its investigation into the fraudster.
Anyone who uses the phrase "to be honest " or "I'll be honest" before making a statement is usually lying and that brings us to fraudster Rob Terry who uses that phrase in today's laughable interview with the Sunday Telegraph. One claim is that he made £30 million from the Quindell (QPP) fraud. Natch: Terry is lying as he does every time when there is a Y in the day he is speaking.
Rob Terry's interview with the Sunday Telegraph today really is a laugh a minute. Having noted how he things S&G got a bargain buying Quenron assets - a deal that has pushed it to the brink of insolvency, Terry then moves onto the AIM market. Rob is concerned about its standards of regulation. Fuck me this is ridiculous.
Fraudster Rob Terry has given an exclusive interview to the Sunday Telegraph which is sheer comedy at numerous levels but shareholders in Slater & Gordon will not be laughing for Terry really kicks them in the goolies. S&G shares were $7.95 when it bought 92% of the Quindell business. A year later they are 29 Aussie cents. But Terry says:
Non Executive Directors are meant to be there to keep executive directors in check on behalf of other shareholders. That applies if you are dealing with an honest CEO or a psycopathic fraudster such as Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) infamy who now runs the Knob Park Ponzi. So which NED's keep the old crook in check?
The tawdry tale of fraud involving Canadian listed penny dreadful Biosign (as of 2 weeks ago bust) and fraudster Rob Terry is finaly drawing to a close. Terry has fessed up to the final chapter on his lamentable Knob Park blog.
Darren Winters sent me a lawyers letter in the Autumn for calling him a charlatan and snake oil salesman and threatening me with legal action if I did not withdraw what is a statement of fact. I shall see the Winters bitchez in court and he is a moron for thinking I'd say anything else. Anyhow Winters got another courtroom beating from team Sheriff today so maybe he has learned who not to try to bully. Back to real morons and this week's Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest where there was only one winner...
Quob Park Health Limited was incorporated on 31 March 2016, but thus far there is no sign of Rob Terry being directly involved. Not on the surface, anyway, but digging a little deeper there are a few links. One wonders what is going on?
AIM-listed Imaginatek (IMTK) has just responded to Press Speculation - one assumes the Daily Mail story Rob Terry is planning a takeover - but pointedly failed to deny the story. Is Rob Terry about to launch a bid and return to the Casino? I though April Fool's day was last Friday....
Oh dear, it seems that Britain's top share blogger is on the warpath again and has made public a letter of complaint about the language used on this website accusing us, I think, of homophobia.
Maybe it's because it's a big US stock, or maybe because the world just hates working with Microsoft, but Nigel Somerville's Hey! Microsoft! Fuck you and fuck you some more - re Windows 10 comes in at an easy number 16, which is extremely high for a non-Tom story. Particularly one only written yesterday. It apparently has got under people's skin.
Last year in ADVFN's financial services awards the share blogger of the year was Dan Levi, Brokerman Dan, aka the business partner of ADVFN head honcho Clem Chambers. Natch I was gutted not to win so what about this year. Shucks. The awards were announced this morning and once again I am not even mentioned. Double shucks.
Watchstone (WTG) has offloaded another of the joke/frauds bought during the Rob Terry era to its management at a stonking loss. The sale of Quintica for £1.35 million is good news for Watchstone but shows once again what a crook the fraudster Rob Terry was.
This podcast looks at three men. First is the criminal fraudster and expenses thief Rob Terry and I discuss what sort of trial and what sort of punishment needs to take place and be imposed. Then it is fund manager Neil Woodford and I look at his growing biotech headaches. Finally the greedy pig Richard Chase of Nyota. If you have not yet listened to yesterday's special on this failure of a CEO please do so and send the email I request.
There are some folks out there - Evil Knievil - who under under the illussion that what is left in Watchstone Group (WTG) has a value, that somehow the collection of frauds assambled as Quindell that even Slater & Gordon was not dumb enough to buy is worth something. Au contraire. I see that the Maine Finance subsidiary has finally filed its December 2014 accounts with a directors’ report disclosing;
This is the least of the problems facing fraudster Rob Terry. A looming arrest by the Serious Fraud Office and a likely multi year jail term is top of his worries but now Watchstone (WTG), formerly Quindell (QPP), is accusing him of six figure expenses theft.
I start with Jimmy Savile as I have no apologies for running this yesterday.The BBC enquiry is just another establishment cover up and I explain why. Then it is onto investor denial at Petroceltic (PCI), not at Premaitha (NIPT), but at LGO Energy (LGO). I explain why Volex (VLX) is - and always will be - a shit company. Then I ask Rob Terry and Knob Park to unblock me on twitter as we should all have an online beer and popcorn party late on Sunday when Slater & Gordon (SGH) reports its results. I'll be up to do a special podcast and it will be fun. I hope you'll be joining me and that Rob will unblock me so he can take part too. There is also a brief comment on Nyota (NYO) where the piggery by a useless CEO is about to stop.
We warned you two days ago that Independent Resources (IRG) was trying to spoof investors with a bogus announcement in order to get a discounted placing away...it has not taken long, the placing today is a shocker. the FCA and AIM Regulation must investigate.
There were a bevy of cracking entries in the Motive TV (MTV) in Administration Caption Contest from yesterday and you can see them all HERE. But unlike investing on AIM where everyone's a loser in our contest there is an actual winner. In fact two joint winners. We asked for your captions for the photo below. And the winners are:
Two matters in this bonus podcast. Secondly proposed changes to pension rules. The odious twit Jacob Rees Mogg MP calls this socialism. It is not, it is fewer tax breaks for the uber rich and I explain why chancellor Osborne should go further and tell the son of privilege Rees Mogg and others where to stick it. But first, someone accuses me of being jealous of David Lenigas as he is rich. Folks used to say I was jealous of Rob Terry's wealth and that is why I attacked him. Au contraire, fraudsters and shysters will always have more money than I but it is not their wealth that angers me but how they accumulated it as I explain for Judith W who - pathetically - posts:
And there was I thinking that the good Lord Howard and his colleagues on the board at Watchstone (WTG) formerly Quindell (QPP) wanted nothing to do with fraudster Rob Terry. How wrong was I?
We covered the total fraud that was Quindell's (QPP) dealings with Canadian listed company Biosign - a fraud the new management has tried to paper over - HERE . You will never guess what has happened now.
Warning: perhaps it is best not to play this podcast in front of the kids. On the agenda today I remember when Evil Knievil was a 3Dimmer - good investors accept that facts change, I note this in reference to MX Oil (MXO). I also discuss the folly of leaping to conclusions with reference to Falanx (FLX) and cover DQ Entertainment (DQE) and why Nomads are so skittish these days. Then it is on to Imaginatik (IMTK) and my old sparring partner the fraudster Rob Terry before I end up with a discussion of spraying ones todger and what to make of the situation at Plethora (PLE), the baby of my old friend Jim Mellon
I exposed the massive panama pump fraud at TMC Southern and Quindell (QPP) back in August 2014 and Quindell/Watchstone (WTG) now admits I was 100% right - having first said it would sue me for libel. It would be appreciated if the new management might apologise for that. Now we have some answers as to why TMC has not been struck off despite now being late on THREE sets of accounts. Companies house and I have swapped emails.
We really have not had enough coverage of (now) delisted from the Casino Daniel Stewart (DAN), have we? We already know that the accounts for the year to March 2015 are overdue by four months (and counting) but I note today that its Annual Return is now also marked as overdue by Companies House. One wonders how long it will be before Companies House files a first gazette notice of compulsory strike-off.
There are some folks out there, notably on the LSE Asylum, that think that an unlisted Daniel Stewart (DAN) which is almost out of cash is actually worth anything? Think again, morons.
A raft of folks who enjoy financial hari-kiri were unearthed in last week's Bulletin Board Moron of the week contest but there is a clear joint winner. Can we do better this week?
The fraud that created nearly all of the fictional profits reported by Quindell (QPP) in 2011 was the panama pump involving Mark Ford's TMC Southern. I exposed it HERE in August 2014, got a fascist lawyers letter in response, and Quindell admitted that my allegations were correct in the summer of 2015. But still Rob Terry and his pal Mark Fraud are trying to cover up this ford. Check out Companies House HERE
I am sorry for the delayed podcast but I am only just back from time in the Grim Northern welfare safari with the mother in law and thus can now let myself go with a volley of bad language. I end with an explanation of who benefitted from the £150 million + Himex fraud at Quindell (QPP) laid bare earlier HERE and how it also affects Watchstone (WTG). Before that I talk of my annoyance on the silly blogger spats and the explain the difference between a cash shell and an investment company and why I regard our work on exposing the latter as invaluable. In the middle segment I have more bad news for oil companies such as XCite (XEL), IGAS (IGAS), Petroceltic (PCI) & Gulf Keystone (GKP) and for the sector as a whole but also for the markets. Dont blame China, we bears are still in the driving seat.
Disgraced corporate adviser Daniel Stewart will have its shares thrown off the AIM Casino on Friday. Its balance sheet is a train wreck, it is burning cash, its reputation is in tatters and its shares are worthless. So what happens next?
I have only just finished celebrating the AIM demise of Daniel Stewart (DAN) a shite firm that mistakenly sent me two bully boy lawyers letters trying to gag me. Karma has now come for Daniel Stewart as it did for another firm that pissed away shareholders cash trying to shut me up, Globo. So who is next? You are not going to have to wait long. Karma struck today and I shall reveal all on Tuesday.Why not have a guess who got a dose of Karma today in our readers poll. Its easy...
I'm still pinching myself. Have I been at Tom Winnifrith's magic mushrooms again? Surely it cannot be that ShareProphets has anything in common with Rob Terry's Quob Park Estate? But in the wake of the admission by AIM Death Row in-mate Daniel Stewart (DAN) that it cannot find a new Nomad to replace Beaumont Cornish (and thus is scheduled for the execution chamber next Friday morning) we find that Quob has been tweeting out its approval:
Having hinted previously that its AIM days may be numbered, last night at no-one-is-watching o'clock (5.29pm on a Friday) erstwhile AIM-listed Daniel Stewart (DAN) released an "Update on Suspension" RNS which admitted that following the resignation of Beaumont Cornish, the Nomad of last resort, the company had been unable to find a replacement. In other words no other Nomad is prepared to act and we should expect an AIM execution announcement on Friday of next week.
I deal with three sorts of folks who are in denial. Quindell (QPP)/Watchstone (WTG) owning BB nutters who still insist that Rob Terry may be innocent and I may be guilty, Paul Scott who sees value in retail stocks and the other China nutters who cannot accept that what is going on is more than a little blip. Once again I warn that this podcast contains strong language.
Heck,it may have a new name but it seems that the bury the bad news approach of fraudster Rob Terry still pervades at Watchstone Group (WTG), the company formerly known as Quenron (QPP). Perhaps it would like to tell us about the Canadian lawsuit it picked up this week?
I published a book last year "49 Red Flags" - there are actually 50 listed and the book explians why each is important in avoiding piss-poor investments. As a little exercise the deputy Sheriff of AIM and I have applied the check list to Inspirit Energy PLC (INSP) and the results are appalling.
Watchstone Group (WTG), formerly known as Quenron (QPP) has today sold its property services business BE Insulated and Carbon Reduction Company for just £1. The statement is telling.
You thought that Aussie poltroons Slater & Gordon (SGH) - target price ZERO - were trying to be clean and transparent when it comes to the crap they bought from Quindell (QPP). Think again. We have obtained internal emails which show that the reverse is true.
As we revealed here our poll on the stockmarket villain of the year 2015 was rigged by someone in Manchester voting numerous times from the same ISP, encouraged by the lying criminal Chris Oil. And so we have three potential villains of the year.
