Congratulations to Vast Resources - a hat trick of spoofs since May 3!

First, there was Atlas' pledge not to dump any more shares - which it immediately did. Then came the idea that it had cleared its death spiral debt, with the buried-deep-in-the-release admission that it had taken out another. Spoof two! Today, Vast Resources (VAST) becomes a hat-trick hero in the AIM sewer hall of infamy.

Vast Resources (VAST) is blessed with having the dumbest investors going.  They fell for the last spoof RNS which, in a just world, would see the issuers banned from the markets, and bid the (worthless) shares up to 2.4p. Today there is a new monster spoof and the shares are 56% up to 1.3p offering the bears another chance for a slam dunk free short.  The company says it has refinanced its Atlas death spiral leading the "marks" to assume that there is no more death spiral overhang.

Vast Resources, death spiral provider Atlas and Nomad Roland “Fatty Cornish” bring AIM into disrepute – letter to AIM Regulation

Today's shocking news is not evidence of illegal behaviour, I am told by a member of the death spiral community. I am not so sure. But investors were indeed deceived by Vast Resources (VAST), Atlas and Beaumont Cornish, which signed off on the May 3 release. The incident brings “the world’s most successful growth market” into disrepute, and I have written to Marcus Stuttard, the bogus Sheriff and head of the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, urging him to investigate possible illegality and to censure all those involved.

BREAKING: Explosive Winnileaks email on Vast Resources - WH Ireland refuses to act for the firm and slates Prelea, Fatty Cornish doesn't care

In March this year WH Ireland was approached to become joint broker to Vast Resources (VAST). It conducted due diligence and that threw up so many red flags about the business but also about boss Andrew Prelea that WH Ireland said that  it could not act.  The email exchange detailing this has found its way via Winnileaks to myself and is published below. It is damning and all credit to WH Ireland for putting principle before profit. But Nomad Roland Fatty Cornish has been made aware of the same issues and appears to think that a) it is just after two so time for the third course of a six course luncheon and b) that he should just carry on taking the cash come what may.  Lunches don’t pay for themselves after all. Enablers like Fatty are why AIM is a sewer. I am aware of a number of matters which WH Ireland discovered and anyone owning shares in Vast is truly certifiable.

Vast Resources: The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation vs Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham (again)

Clearly Vast Resources (VAST) has misled investors of many years allowing the AIM fat cats who run this company to live the lifestyle at the expense of others. I flagged up one such shocker HERE. Fleet Street legend Brian Basham has tried to get the woke dullards at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do something but neither seem to care.  His latest exchange of emails has fallen into my hands.

In 2008, shares in Vast Resources (VAST) traded at 24.6p. Today they trade at 0.082p. In other words, those running this company have, while trousering multi-millions of pounds in fees, managed to destroy 99.67% of shareholder value. While many companies do badly for shareholders, the trick here is to keep the company going so more fees can be extracted as part of an ongoing shareholder screw.

Accordingly, I thought it was more appropriate to write a piece heralding the 7 Mythical Wonders of the AIM Casino instead.

Okay it is house broker so hardly partial but the disposal made by Vast Resources (VAST) and announced today can't be bad news can it? Over to broker Brandon Hill which writes:

Vast Resources – Well done Roy, you worked it out in the end (again!)

Déjà vu this morning with the announcement from Roy Pitchford at Vast Resources (VAST) earlier today as he announced that it was ditching the Bracknor facility, presumably as he realised that it wasn’t doing wonders for the share price. Well, at least you realised before causing any further damage.

Vast Resources: Suspicious share trading activity – FCA need to get involved – and an investigation that even Clouseau could solve!

I appreciate that Tom wrote last week about the expensive loan from Bracknor (HERE) ; however, I wanted to point out a few other aspects of the financing transaction, particularly after the laughably naïve RNS’s that came out this morning. The FCA need to take a closer look.

Vast Resources - The Interest Free loan which will actually cost a minimum of 27.5%

Shitty little AIM Companies such as Vast Resources (VAST) would be better off borrowing on the company credit card than dealing with loan sharks such as Bracknor and Northland Capital. To add insult to injury Vast describes as $2 million loan today as interest free. Bollocks. It is even more expensive as the infamous loan from fragrant Katrina Clayton the wife of the FD at FRAUD African Potash (AFPO).

It’s been a fantastic week for democracy on AIM first with the ousting of the Teathers Financial (TEA) Board early in the week and then, yesterday, even more impressively was the show of strength by the shareholders of Vast Resources (VAST) at the general meeting ousting the greedy financiers, Crede, in the process.

Vast Resources: Shareholder activism at its best – make sure you get involved NOW

Despite Vast Resources’ (VAST) share price taking a bit of a beating last week, it is great to see its private investors getting together to try to make a difference, rather than just sitting back and accepting their fate.  As a big fan of shareholder activism, I’m more than happy to do my bit to publicise the cause and try to get more people involved.

I first commented on the shocking funding deal between Vast Resources (VAST) and Crede HERE in March with the share price around 0.3p and although Vast managed to get out of the second tranche of funding (and got into bed with Darwin instead), yesterday’s RNS gave a disastrous update on all funding and operational matters – what a doozy!

Zak Mir's Bull Call Of The Day: Vast Resources: Continued Upside To 2p And Beyond

As can be seen on the daily chart of Vast Resources (VAST) since the name change from African Consolidated Minerals, the name change looks to have been a good move, at least from a share price perspective.

Vast pursuing big production drive

Roy Pitchford, seasoned chief executive officer of bombed-out Vast Resources (VAST), says the company should later this year be producing gold from the Pickstone Peerless mine in Zimbabwe and a range of metals from gold to copper and zinc from Baita Bihor in Rumania, an incongruous and opportunistic mixture explained by the company’s tortuous history. Vast, which changed its name from African Consolidated Resources in December when it raised nearly £1.6 million at 0.5p to gain potential control of Baita Bihor in Transylvania’s Apuseni mountains, tapped the market again for another £900,000 the other day at 0.6p and, though Pitchford argues it is ‘funded to take Baita Bihor into production’, he adds ‘but we would like to raise a bit more in two months.’
