Notes from Underground: Fraud Follies

Published 23 days ago

Part of the problem with the mainstream press these days is the lack of follow-up. Sure, they love to blow the latest scandal out of all proportion but weeks or months later when the authorities have delivered their reports, they have moved on to the next thing.

Folli Follie… Some people are on the pitch, they think it’s all over….it is now! (Almost)

It seems like just yesterday that burly security guards tried to grab my camera forcing me to flee as I tried to doorstep the 1 billion Euro fraud Folli Follie at its North of Athens HQ. Since then the shares have been suspended, a criminal enquiry began, the former auditors have admitted that 2017 accounts were pure fiction and now… Folli has put itself into the Greek equivalent of Chapter 11.

Folli Follie – the heart of the Greek fraud was, as expected, in China

Another day, another release from fraud Follie Follie to the Greek Stock Exchange and, as we all suspected, it is the bogus Chinese operations that were at the heart of this fraud.

Oh dear, I sense that in my adopted home of Greece there are a few folks heading for the slammer in connection with the Folli Follie Fraud which we helped Gabriel Grego to expose on this website. It seems like just the other day that burly security guards were chasing me away from its HQ North of Athens, as you can see HERE.

Folli Follie - Greek Press reports criminal charges on the way, Gabriel Grego comments

Published 150 days ago

The suspension of shares in Folli Follie on Friday because, after three weeks, it was unable to verify its claimed cash balances is surely the beginning of the end. The Greek Press is today reporting that criminal charges for the bubbles in charge are on the way - see HERE. I like to think I played a small part in its downfall and really enjoyed my doorstepping last week. But the architect of this exposure is my pal Gabriel Grego of QCM although it is only a matter of time before Dan "snot gobbler" McCrum at the FT takes full credit. Gabriel has now commented on the latest news. It is a considered piece. He writes:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Find time to read Popbitch this week

Published 150 days ago

In today's bearcast I start by putting our own in house Bulletin Board loon Wildes in his place over what I write. If you donlt like the Folli Follie and Julie Meyer material ( it will be sub 2.5% of our output this year) feel free to piss off mate. Then I look at the latest bust up at WPP (WPP) which should just come clean over why Sir Martin Sorrell walked the plank. Finally I take apart the latest comments made by the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood on POS AIM ramp Frontera Resources (FRR). Wildes is not the only one NOT to have sponsored myself and Brokerman Dan for our 30 mile Woodlarks walk. If you enjoy bearcast I am sure you can spare a tenner so donate HERE  - to those who have donated I say thank you.

Folli Follie - surely it is double ouzo time now!

Published 151 days ago

Having collapsed by another 25% yesterday to just 4.8 Euro shares in Folli Follie were suspended on the Athens stock exchange first thing today prompting a bearcast ouzo. Initially the company told the Greek media that it was because of all we nasty bears spreading false rumours and creating a disorderly market. Then at 11.30 GMT the awful truth came out.

Hooray. After this week's doorstepping and podcast special and the work back in Bristol this is a great day. I suspect it is game over and discuss the probable demise of Folli Follie. Never buy a stock on a PE of 1. Elsewhere I look at rumours concerning Nomad Northland, at Echo Energy (ECHO), the fraud MySquar (MYSQ), my letter to Julie Meyer HERE, Sound Energy (SOU), Westminster Group (WSG) - with its revolting chairman ex Tory MP Tony Baldry - and Frontera (FRR) and its latest pre placing ramp. Now come on chaps, if you enjoy bearcast - and I know 1000 of you do every day - please donate £10 NOW to the Woodlarks charity walk - HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - picking up Andrew Monk on a couple of things

Published 152 days ago

Forgive the late bearcast. Blame it on Greek Hovel business. In today's podcast I look at Folli Follie, shares in which are slumping again as I warned you the other day HERE - tomorrow might be D (for Death) Day. I then take up Andrew Monk on AIQ (AIQ), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and the idea of consolidating brokers and Nomads via M&A. It makes no sense Andrew. Then I look at the GoTech (GOT) shambles - its now a dope play but frankly you must be a dope to own this stock. Then I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) again with a point folks like Cynical Bear have missed. Finally its i3 Energy (I3E). Thanks to those who have sponsored me as I suffer the dual agonies of walking 30 miles and having to listen to Brokerman Dan drone on all day, but 99% of bearcast listeners have not yet donated a tenner. Please do so HERE

Folli Follie doorstepping photo & podcast special

Published 153 days ago

For reasons to do with burly security guards explained here I could not record this at Folli Follie. That is probably good as I can now explain the similarities with another Greek fraud (Globo), the looming deadlines and the unresolved questions which make this company likely to implode. That is not to say it does not have some real operations, the photos below are of its flagship store at 19 Ermou St in Athens, which I visited on Monday

Video from Folli Follie HQ Athens - the photos its burly security guards don't want you seeing

Published 153 days ago

As promised, I trekked up the Great North Road to the HQ of Greek fraud Folli Follie to record a video. My driver was a burly Albanian arranged by friends of mine to ensure my safety. He was a bit more than a driver. I got out to take some photos which you can see below and then I was approached by two very burly security guards who don't want you seeing these photos. The video below shot from the other side of the Motorway explains what happened next.

Yes, this is the place where many AIM CEOs are not fit to run the public toilets. What better place to record? Excuse the background noise. Yes I am back in Greece - I kept that a secret - and have today door-stepped Folli Follie at its lavish HQ camera in hand. It was an experience. Thank god I had a burly Albanian in a car with a motor running parked down the road. In this podcast I discuss Andalas (ADL) which is still not coming clean and is a prize dog, Roger Lawson with whom I have a good chat last night and who does not trivialise hate mail and R4E (R4E) whose results statement is er.. a mixed bag for we loyal shareholders.  PS If you appreciate my bravery and dedication GO SPONSOR ME FOR £10 NOW HERE

Gabriel Grego PROVES that the Folli Follie Rebuttal just does not wash - it is lying about POS numbers

Published 166 days ago

With a little, acknowledged, help from yours truly, Gabriel Grego of Quintessential Capital Management has reviewed the list of 587 POS ( Points of Sale) claimed by Folli Follie on Monday and demonstrates cleary that it is way overstated. Any company caught with its pants down lying about something this basic is clearly engaged in fraud. The shares have recovered to 8.4 Euro but are worth ZERO. This is still free money as a short.  Gabriel writes:

Photo Article - PROOF that Greek fraudsters Folli Follie LIED to the Athens Exchange today

Published 169 days ago

Folli Folie, the Greek fraudsters, today attempted to refuse claims by Gabriel Grego that they were lying, inter alia, about store numbers and so in a release to the Athens Stock Exchange published a list of 587 stores. It has taken me one hour to prove clear and big lies on this list as I shall demonstrate below.

Gabriel Grego hits back at response to statement from Greek fraudsters Folie Follie

Published 169 days ago

Folli Follie (FF) the Greek luxury goods seller has denied the bombshell claims made in Gabriel Grego's devestating dossier we published on Thursday. I have today verified for myself that FF is lying about its British operations in a release to the Athens exchange today. So as far as I am concerned it is an open and shut fraud and a zero. But here ios Gabriel, the boss of Quintessential Asset Management (QCM) 

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I ask for your help wherever you are

Published 169 days ago

I start with a discussion on regulation, estate agents and a doomed UK prompted by the excellent Sunday Times Column yesterday by #LukeJohnsonforPM. Then it is onto Folli Follie. The British may be idling their way through another bank holiday but hard working Greeks are back at work. So we have a weak denial statement from Folli Follie but its Athens based shares which were off 30% are now off only 18% and are bouncing fast. I think this is still a zero and ask you if you can examine this manifest of claimed stores and assist. FWIW I explain why the manifest just does not wash. I am off right now with my camera to the House of Fraser in Bristol. I have made a call already and this will be a "win" for the Bears. Watch this space... - if anyone can do other HoF stores, Selfridges or the Irish ones on this list  and get me photos plus what the stores say J'd be grateful.

At this very moment the man who exposed Greek based AIM superstar Globo (GBO) as a total fraud, Gabriele Grego, has just concluded a speech in New York. Ed Croft need not worry, for once the mega scam Gabriele has debagged, is not a stock he has tipped, as he did with Globo. We have the full dossier Gabriele has prepared and it is explosive.
