Interactive Investor ( iii) - We are not the only bastards in the stockbroker village

Published 11 days ago

iii, aka Interactive Investor, do not seem happy at being called total bastards for changing the terms for holding client money so that clients, that is mug punters like you and I, get more risk and iii gets more money. It says that this is not the objective of what is going on any anyhow other stockbrokers such as Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are doing the same thing. As such I am happy to clarify " I apologise for saying that iii are total bastards. I meant to say that iii like many other stockbrokers including Hargreaves Lansdown and the Share Centre are total bastards." The iii spokesman is keen that I put this all in context.  iii's comments are in bold, my translation service is below.

Exclusive: Redcentric and the payroll fraud it learned from Rob Terry - how has CEO Fraser Fisher not been fired?

Published 18 days ago

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.

You really do have to feel sorry for Cynical Bear. One minute he has a fully fit squad to choose from and then one by one they drop like flies, either with fitness issues or just simply keel over.

No need to turn to the back pages of the tabloid press for the big stories of sporting drama, we have it all here at ShareProphets: AIM-listed Servision (SEV) is to put in a transfer request.

Excellent expose by The Telegraph: £70k for the Chocolate Teapots' (almost) identical logo

Published 74 days ago

Tom Winnifrith keeps reminding us that frauds, like Labour Governments, always end up running out of other peoples’ money. And that brings us to the Chocolate teapots of the FCA which have been exposed in an excellent piece in The Daily Telegraph as having spent enough to keep a couple of nurses on shift for a year to have its logo redesigned….to almost identical and equally pointless window-dressing for its website and corporate communications. Why not spend the cash on catching criminals? I am reminded of images of yester-year of swanky new deep-pile carpets in the hospital chief executive’s office whilst patients waited for years to regain mobility offered by a hip replacement.

CFD firms whacked as Britain's FCA follows European lead and clamps down

Published 228 days ago

I do not use CFD's. They seem like a mugs game and indeed research by the FCA shows that 82% of clients of the big providers lose money. But then most folks lose on the horses or on betting on football so why target CFDs? It is all driven by MiFD2. We saw this take shape in Cyprus last week although Plus500 denied that it would be affected in a pathetic rebuttal to my scoop. That rebuttal was bollocks and Plus shares are among the big fallers today as the FCA has weighed in with a series of measures.

CloudTag – My plan for great riches hits a new snag

Published 235 days ago

Oh dear, AIM-listed jam- (and product) tomorrow (or sometime, maybe) CloudTag (CTAG) closed last night notching up (or, perhaps down) a bid price of just 6.75p per share. This might be causing a few headaches over at L1 Towers as it seeks to convert its remaining £1.2 million of convertible notes from Tranche 1 of its death spiral funding package. My plan to become a death spiral financier on the Casino seems to have hit a nasty problem – that of headroom in already existing share issuance authorities of the investee company running out and leaving me lobster-potted in unconvertible notes. Of course, I can “persuade” the company to increase the authorities, but time is of the essence: I want to offload ASAP and bank my bunce.

Letter to AIM Regulation & FCA re Advanced Oncotherapy - URGENT enquiry needed now

Published 238 days ago

Yesterday shares in Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) plunged after it fessed up that a critical deal worth up to $120 million with a Chinese entity had encountered problems. Those who backed a big fundraise just weeks ago are already 26% down. But the incident begs massive questions about the timeline of disclosure and RNS statements that appear to be utterly untrue. I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation, as this appears to be market abuse, outlining my very specific concerns and demanding an urgent enquiry and, if appropriate, that sanction be taken against those responsible. The letter is below:

Advanced Oncotherapy - so does it have any orders at all? What does it define as a sale? This stinks

Published 239 days ago

How many commercial orders does Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) have for its Proton beam machines? I put it to you that the answer is zero but that it has always been zero. This company appears to have over-egged the pudding on a serial basis, allowing it to raise vast sums. The FCA should be now launching an urgent investigation into this matter demanding to see original "commercial sales" paperwork in order to see if Advanced has been as transparent as the rules dictate.

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.

And that is a clear cut case of fraud. But will Marcus Stuttard, the head of AIM Regulation do anything about it or is fraud now acceptable on AIM? I have written to the man who basks in the title "The Sheriff of AIM" as you can see below.

What makes the fact that these fascist poltroons go after an investigative journalist who has busted so many frauds is that the FCA has not gone after the frauds despite me handing it evidence on a plate.

Yesterday we outed Mr John Molyneux as the WH Ireland stockbroker who had mugged 75 year old pensioners by sticking the cash from discretionary accounts into penny stocks – usually WH Ireland corporate clients doing a fund raise – which had nearly all cratered.  I can reveal that Mr Molyneux has now decided all of a sudden that at 68 it is a good time to retire. With immediate effect. But if he and AIM listed WH Ireland (WHI) think this scandal is over they are mistaken. It is just beginning.

ShareProphets Exclusive: AIM CEOs speak out on City placement corruption and market abuse – Part 2

Published 702 days ago

Yesterday I reported the story of an AIM CEO, who shared his first hand experience of the City corruption that enables the illegal forward selling of placements. Today I publish a second account, from a separate CEO, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity. Over the years, a number of companies on AIM have suffered illicit coordinated market attacks against their share prices. There has long been a suspicion of direct City complicity in these abusive assaults, involving regulated brokerage firms and market makers. Thanks to the vagaries of libel law and the City’s conspiracy of silence this is a story nearly impossible to report on, but the comments of CEO 2 serve as a warning to private investors in this utterly bent market.   

ShareProphets Exclusive: AIM CEOs speak out on City placement corruption and market abuse – Part 1

Published 703 days ago

AIM Regulation and the FCA’s inability or unwillingness to tackle rampant market abuse involving the illegal forward selling of placements on AIM has cost companies and shareholders hundreds of millions of pounds. The problem has become so widespread that it is widely seen as the cost of doing business in the lower reaches of the market. This is unacceptable and two current CEOs of AIM-listed businesses have spoken out about the parlous state of play.  Below I share the first testimonial, given on the condition of anonymity.

Open Letter: FCA asked to drop a line Down Under about Pirate Pete’s war gold salvage caper

The FCA now has two reasons to call its colleagues Down Under, at the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC). First it might like to suggest that perhaps the Australian Women’s cricket team should represent the country in the next Ashes series. Based on recent form, they will certainly offer a greater challenge than their male compatriots. Second, after we pointed out the odd issue or two in Black Mountain Resources’ (BMZ) planned involvement in a so-called subsea salvage operation to retrieve >$1billion worth of lost war gold, perhaps the FCA might like to find out how serious the Australian authorities are in policing their small cap market and protecting British Private investors.

Quindell and regulatory failure: an open letter to Business Secretary Sajid Javid MP

Published 713 days ago

This week’s disclosures by Quindell (QPP)  have shown conclusively that the gargantuan body of work which started back in April 2013 by ourselves and colleagues at ShareProphets was on the button. Along the way there were allegations of securities fraud, accounting fraud, VAT fraud, insider dealing, market abuse in what is simply a staggering litany of revelations. The evidence was passed to the FCA, AIM Regulation, the SFO and others in a series of submissions going back to April 2014. Yet the FCA and AIM Regulation utterly failed to act on the evidence handed over. The FCA took until June of this year to open an investigation – we rather suspect because of a me-too response, once it was known that the SFO was involved and that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) had been looking at Quindell. AIM has yet to confirm any actions beyond a spot of belated flag-waving.

Formerly known as David John Hopkins, Levi has spent sixteen years in jail for two separate convictions involving firearms. There is no indication that either conviction is spent. It will now be a source of major embarrassment both to the London Stock Exchange and the Financial Conduct Authority that a man with Levi’s background was able to become Executive Chairman of Sefton Resources (SER), without anyone picking up on his criminal past.

This morning, Metal Tiger (MTR) announced that its outstanding unsettled position in New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has been settled. Two months late, the failure of regulated market participants to fulfil their contractual terms has materially and detrimentally impacted the fortunes of hundreds, if not several thousand, private shareholders up and down the country. The shareholder action group could not reach the 10% threshold to requisition a general meeting directly because of this. While the London Stock Exchange failed miserably to enforce its own rulebooks, the FCA stood idly by and did nothing. This whole episode is dreadful for the reputation of AIM and calls into question how trustworthy or viable is this market?

Last chance for the London Stock Exchange to save the credibility of AIM ref. New World Oil & Gas

Published 745 days ago

The New World Oil & Gas (NEW) forward selling fiasco has been a disaster for the credibility of AIM. So far, every single safeguard that is meant to be in place to protect private investors has failed. Predatory regulated City firms are on the cusp of making millions of pounds of profit from the chaos they have caused, while hundreds of private investors stand to suffer unacceptable and unjust losses. Had the authorities been doing their jobs properly in the first place none of this would have happened, but such is the paucity of regulatory oversight on AIM that the conditions have been primed for this shambolic situation for a long time. Nevertheless, the London Stock Exchange has one last chance to prove itself deserving of its licence for self-regulation of “the world’s most successful growth market”.

Unfortunately for those who chose Liam as the forward sellers’ poster-boy, he has not behaved well. Posting under the username “Awkward Turtle” across social media, Liam is quite removed from being an “ordinary” private investor.

To be so blatant with your market abuse surely makes you a Bulletin Board Moron but perhaps you have spotted someone tweeting or posting something even more stupid. we suggest that boards for New World, Sefton and Worthington will once again throw up some examples.

Next up is a detailed look at today's news from Environmental Recycling (ENRT), formerly 3DM, then onto Tomco, Rose Petroleum, Tungsten, Blinkx, Sefton and Solgold. And then for some folks out there - including Chris Oil - I explain what constitutes market abuse and/or insider dealing and what the FCA should do about what is NOT a victimless crime.

Quite simply, the firm of Beaumont Cornish is not fit for purpose as a Nomad. It epitomises all that is wrong with the AIM market.

Even with regard to just this one company there have been serial disasters, but there are more cases where Beaumont Cornish has failed in its duties as Nomad.

But it does ask a few questions of AIM Regulation (the gargantuan nature of this Orwellian misnomer is all too apparent these days), and the Nomad to New World – that fine upstanding firm of Beaumont Cornish.

Its cheerleaders, tipster Mike Walters and a City spiv called Johnny Townsend, encouraged all shareholders to report me to the FSA (the FCA of old).

Worthington fraud part 17: Doug Ware running scared and meanwhile can he explain why his financial adviser quit – another leaked letter emerges?

Insider dealing at e-Therapeutics – let’s see if AIM Regulation and the FCA are awake today

Published 877 days ago

e-Therapeutics (ETX) has just issued this statement about the >35% jump in its share price in the last few days. In short, its board has admitted that it thinks price sensitive information has leaked from the company. “Big deal”, I hear our regular readers cry, “this is what we expect on AIM”. Sadly I have to agree with this sentiment, but this instance of seemingly clear-cut insider dealing has caught my eye. This is because, on this occasion, the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Regulation team and Financial Conduct Authority should have an easy time of catching the culprit or culprits. That is, if they are awake. It is, after all, Thursday afternoon.

Formal Request to FCA to investigate David Currie and Quindell for Market Abuse

Published 878 days ago

On Monday 22 February the fraud Quindell (QPP) put out a statement that misled investors as to the status of its discussions with Slater & Gordon as to the sale of QLS. Slater and Gordon was forced to clarify the situation with its own statement. Shares soared on the Quenron RNS but retreated as S&G revealed the truth. As such this begs the real question as to whether David Currie, the chairman of Quenron and old pal of Mr Robert Simon Terry, is guilty of market abuse. I have written to the FCA today asking it to launch a formal enquiry.

Tom Winifrith and Colin Firth say buy Quindell? No Its a Moron breaking the law

Published 895 days ago

The publication of material that you know to be untrue or misleading in an attempt to persuade folks to buy or sell securities is termed market abuse and is a criminal act and that brings me to the latest act of insanity by a Quindell (QPP) owning moron – the creation of the twitter account @tomwinifrith.  You will note that it has only one n and so is not me but you could easily be forgiven for making that mistake.

Quindell, RTA, Rob Fielding and the missing £2 million, new document – Sacking needed now

Published 899 days ago

On Christmas Day I revealed how Quindell (QPP) CEO Rob Fielding had made £2 million for selling a worthless company established by him in December 2013 to Quindell a month later. This should have been declared as a related party deal – since Fielding is a PDMR – but it was not but was instead rolled into a £30 million deal involving convicted Nigerian fraudster Andrew O’Dua. I now have a new document which makes this look even worse – why has Fielding not been fired and the Old Bill called in?

Tern plc– Angus Forrest is STILL not telling the truth about the Cryptosoft Acquisition!

Published 916 days ago

I’ve already scotched a few rumours and outright untruths about Tern plc (TERN) HERE, HERE HERE  and HERE and Tom Winnifrith has added to the opprobium several times, in particular HERE. But in the wake of a ‘clarification’ RNS which appeared to seek to set the record straight, Tern’s company chairman, Mr Angus Forrest, is STILL misleading his investors by giving an overstated impression of Tern’s beneficial ownership of Cryptosoft. I would suggest that this amounts to Market Abuse. It is a disgrace. The FCA and AIM Regulation need to act now to stop this. It is an affront to all the regulatory systems in place to make sure that the market is told the full truth!

Correction: IGas -STILL not in compliance with AIM Rule 17. Time for AIM Regulation to show its teeth

Published 917 days ago

Yesterday I ran a piece saying that IGas (IGAS) was still not complying with DTR 3 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules in the FCA rule book. It isn’t, but it turns out that DTR 3 does not apply to AIM companies, not that I managed to glean that from the DTR rules, although it can be inferred from the AIM Rules in the Guidance Notes. Mea Culpa, then and I apologise for the error. But AIM Rule 17 contains much the same requirements and so here is a corrected version of that piece. For the record, DTR 5 (rules governing disclosure of holdings greater that 3%) DOES apply to AIM Companies.

All those companies were in the end (and some rather more reluctantly than others) forced into clarifications. But it turns out that the FCA has also issued a clarification too!

The Scandal of Tern: An Open Letter to the FCA and to AIM Regulation – I Bloody Told You So!

Published 928 days ago

For over a year I have been providing the regulators with a chapter and verse dossier of breaches, lies, misrepresentations, incorrect filings, missing RNSs, market abuses, contract breaches and a whole lot more besides with regard to the collapse of Digital Learning Marketplace (DLM) in 2012. They were warned that it would all happen again unless they acted. They have not. And so, in the wake of an utter scandal at Tern (TERN) which, one way or another, involves almost ALL of the protagonists from the DLM scandal I have written an open letter to the chief executive of the  FCA, Mr Martin Wheatley and to the head of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard. The latter, laughably, describes himself as The Sheriff of AIM. I think we all know that he is an imposter and who is the real Sheriff.

Market abuse covers many sins but one is to give a misleading impression of the value of securities as a result of false statements.  Quindell had told investors that it would achieve cash breakeven in Q3 2014.

Published 977 days ago

I nearly spat out my Sunday morning cornflakes when I read on the Telegraph’s finance section that ‘Quarterly reporting quietly comes to an end’.  Yes, apparently, the FCA have concluded that ‘Interim management statements, which generally cover three months of trading, were deemed too short a snapshot of a firm’s performance to properly inform investors’ and in order to encourage longer-term thinking any mandatory requirement to publish detailed has been scrapped. 

Open letter to the FCA; investigate Rob Terry, Steve Scott and Laurence Moorse for market abuse

Published 977 days ago

I’d love to believe that this morning’s statement from the disastrous, discredited and detestable Rob Terry is the last we will hear from this awful man in an RNS. Sadly I fear it won’t be, unless the authorities launch an immediate investigation into Quindell (QPP). Prior to listing Quindell, Terry’s record at the Innovation Group was there for all to see and red flag warning signs were waving long before Tom embarked on his valiant campaign. Once again, the “world’s most successful growth market” has fallen woefully short in offering British private investors any sort of genuine protection. The brokers, Nomad, PR firms and corporate advisors have all been paid handsomely, while thousands of ordinary people have watched their life savings evaporate. This cannot be acceptable. There are dozens of reasons why the FCA and AIM Regulation should investigate Quindell, but let’s begin with a first complaint of market abuse to the FCA.

In this BearCast Special I explain exactly how Equities First Holdings LLC operates. When it sells the shares AIM directors transfer to it and why that means that ALL of the AIM directors involved have broken the law. That is Quindell (QPP), IGAS (IGAS), Cloudbuy (CBUY), IQE (IQE) and Angle (AGL). There then follows the misleading statements. But then I turn to the negligence of Nomads, Cenkos, Canaccord and Hanson Westhouse and why that should be career ending for some. And the to why Equities First and its employees should be struck off by the FCA.  This scandal is enormous and for many involved professional disgrace is the least of their worries.

ShareProphets Exclusive: Bucket shop market abusers find new way to steal from private investors

Published 1002 days ago

Private investors on AIM are used to watching millions wiped off the value of their investments by the illegal forward selling of placements, followed by gratuitous discounts forced by brokers. Not content with the scale of their illegitimate profits, it now looks like the market abusers have struck upon a new method of stealing from shareholders. It’s come to our attention that certain bucket shops are demanding a sizeable percentage of brokers’ fees for participation in placements. Sadly, we have been made aware of at least one broker, which is playing along with this outrage. This helps explain the mystery of the increasing number of stocks we’ve watched trade below placement prices, immediately after the completion of fundraisings. Even by the abysmal standards of AIM’s cesspit, this revelation is a new low.

Tom Winnifrith has today requested that the FCA investigate whether he has committed statements he made on Monday regarding Quenron (QPP) which he claims has committed accounting fraud and lied to investors. So will the regulators back Tom or Quindell? One of the two parties concerned clearly has committed market abuse. Just in case the regulators act swiftly the deadline for voting is 9 AM Monday.

Dear FCA: please investigate whether I committed market abuse on 13th October regarding Quindell

Published 1007 days ago

This morning I have written to the FCA asking it to investigate whether the allegations I made on 13th October 2014 regarding Quindell PLC (QPP) constitute market abuse. The allegations are the most serious I can make, that Quenron has committed wholesale accounting fraud and has lied to investors via RNS.  If the allegations are not true I have committed market abuse. As it happens they are 100% verifiable and I have not seen one person show why they are not. That is because they are verifiably true. The video of my presentation making these allegations is HERE.  The letter to the FCA explains why I have made this request and reads:

Reader Comment of the day: TurboMuncher on the Quindell cash Crisis

Published 1011 days ago

It is abundantly clear that Quenron (QPP) now faces a cash crisis of monumental proportions. I am sure that the FCA is now monitoring its Regulatory capital position with extreme concern. And if you want to know what happens when this becomes an issue have a look at Daniel Stewart HERE. I flagged up earlier today, one way in which Quenron is hiding this time bomb from investors – by delaying salary payments HERE – but the other obvious way is by not paying its bills, something you would not be able to gauge from the cobblers in its trading statement of Monday. But poster TurboMubcher has the data and puts it into context for you in an excellent post:

Oh dear, The Quenron (QPP) shareholder list does contain more than its fair share of complete and utter nutters. On an almost daily basis I am alerted to a post which has been made by someone who really is truly bonkers. I was entertained to see some cretin on ADVFN discuss the “TW Red Flags” on Quenron – apparently having a strong opinion which is not buy is deemed a Red Flag.  However, The Bulletin Board Moron of the Day is “Mr Palmer” on the LSE Board. On a day when another Quindell nutter who boasted on twitter of having a "hitlist" which included myself and Dan Levi has been reported to the Old Bill (not by me as I regard the Met as useless), Mr Palmer takes centre stage.

And so Quindell Legal Services, the biggest part of the Quenron Group (QPP) has filed its accounts. Also of interest is the fact that it filed two annual returns for last year. Would Quindell care to deny that it had a spot of bother with its capital adequacy forms filled in with the FCA? That might explain a few of the red flags but not all.

Daniel Stewart – Crony Capitalism on the AIM Casino in a Nutshell – new shock revelations

The Naibu fraud – two critical questions and tests of integrity for Daniel Stewart as the stock heads to 0p and/or a delisting

Published 1043 days ago

Apparently at 31p shares in Naibu now trade on a 2015 and 2015 PE of c0.7. Any stock trading on such a rating is either the cheapest stock on this planet or an outright fraud, a Norfolk. Naibu is a fraud. My target price is 0p and this stock will lose its Aim listing soon. It could be very soon. If Daniel Stewart, nomad and broker to this POS – and the firm that listed Quenron – had any integrity it would resign at once as Nomad and broker. As such I ask two questions of Daniel Cesspit.

I have today asked it to formally review the accounts of Quindell (QPP). The letter follows.

Bulletin Board Morons might not like this but it is their company and their cash (as owners of the company) that has been spent and this needs to be formally investigated.

The real red faces are round at the FCA which (under its previous guise as the FSA) visited Christie in 2009 and gave him a clean bill of health.

Open letter to the FCA; please investigate Kibo Mining’s placement of March 31st

Published 1093 days ago

On March 31st this year, Kibo Mining (KIBO) raised £750,000 at 2.5p. The price of this placement was horrific, at a 42% discount to the previous close’s 65 day Moving Average (65MA) closing price. On March 28th Kibo’s 65MA closing price was 4.28p. In percentage terms, this was one of the worst recent cases of placement value destruction I have come across and there was a very strong suggestion that Kibo, and its shareholders, had been victim of blatant (and sloppy) forward selling. Forward selling is the term used to describe a version of market abuse whereby certain parties, armed with confidential “inside” information, use this to profit, by going heavily short a stock, which they know is trying to raise money. We see possible cases of forward selling of placements regularly on AIM and there is an impression that that the regulator is doing little to nothing about it. Below I have drafted an open letter to the FCA to ask them to investigate this matter.

I have therefore written this morning to both the FCA and to AIM Regulation asking both to launch an urgent investigation into both Quindell PLC (QPP) and its Nomad Cenkos after today’s PT healthcare RNS farce/lie.

Why, at ShareProphets, do we call London’s Alternative Investment Market a cesspit? Because it’s too easy to cheat. If you are of a certain corrupt mindset, then AIM is the perfect breeding ground for you to hatch all manner of devious plans to con people out of their money. You can plot your nefarious schemes, safe in the knowledge that absolutely nothing will be done to stop you. In any other walk of life theft is a criminal offense. However, thanks to the veneer of respectability that the London Stock Exchange affords to AIM, this inconvenient social convention is not only ignored it is trampled all over. Wearing a white collar, it seems, grants you immunity from prosecution.
