The lawyer's letter? I must keen you in suspense as I discuss with my lawyers how to respond so you can still vote on who sent it HERE. I also chatted today to Lucian about three slam dunk shorts: Telit (TCM), Purplebricks (PURP) and Tesla (TSLA). Or are they slam dunks? Might disbelief be suspended forever.? I then look at Photonstar Led (PSL) at Conroy Gold (CGNR) and at how AIM gives capitalism a bad name by not letting bust companies such as Andalas (ADL) fail.

As you can see below the blog of Julie Meyer's biggest critic. former employee turned whistleblower John Galt, has been suspended. This happened last night and one can only conclude that the web hoster received a stern lawyer's letter from someone. Who do we know who has a habit of sending out threatening lawyers letters to all and sundry in response to factually accurate articles? Hmmmmm. Hint, might the old Bill in Malta currently be searching for this person after she skipped a court appearance?

I wonder if Julie Meyer's lawyers will be sending a missive to The Times to bully it after a devestating piece appeared today. It really does beg massive questions although Meyer says she has done nothing wrong. Having already chatted to a couple of creditors and investors in her companies today I am not sure that her opinion is universally shared.

If devout Christian Julie Meyer MBE does not like FACT based articles about her and Ariadne Capital Limited ( now in administration) by City AM, The Evening Standard, The Times, ShareProphets ( an avalanche) and ex employees turned whistleblower such as John Galt posting on LinkedIn she could always send yet another fascist lawyers letter to them. But since all that has been written has been based on fact....

It only took 15 days but I have just received my first lawyer's letter of the year, via email. So here is a little quiz. Who sent the letter:

Don't these fools ever learn? For chancers and crooks like Darren Winters, the shysters at Globo, Blinkx, Quindell and Daniel Stewart and for lyin Chris Cleverley and Lord Hain of sleaze and for so many others, sending me a fascist lawyers letter never works out well. That is not for them at least. But it seems there is one born every day. A new letter is in demanding that three years of articles be removed, that damages and costs be paid and that I put my name to a grovelling apology dictated by this poltroon. Who do you think is daft enough to have sent it? Vote now in our latest poll with a deadline of midnight tonight.

Send Tom Winnifrith a fascist lawyers letter as the fraud African Potash (AFPO) did on September 1 and your fate is sealed. Today African Potash was formally booted off AIM. Now it will fail to raise cash on NEX (formerly ISDX) and will go bust soon. Lyin' Chris Cleverley meet Karma. Ain't she sweet? Amazingly there are still some people out there on the Bulletin boards who think its all my fault and Lyin' Chris runs a great British Company. Whatever. In that vein please nominate the most moronic Bulletin Board or twitter comment you can find in the comments section by midnight on Sunday 15th January. Have fun!

I am sorry if I sound a bit one track minded today but you will remember that African Potash (AFPO) sent me a fascist lawyers letter ( c/o now three time losers against me Memery Crystal) demanding I pay it £2,000, unpublish my articles on it, never write on it again and pay it damages on top back in September 2016. Natch I declined the offer and the fraud that is Potash has been in freefall to insolvency ever since. Moral of the story: don't mess with The Sheriff of AIM. Now, I have a question for Lord Peter Hain of sleaze who chairs the company's remuneration committee.

Some of our critics, notably the felon Earley, reckon we go after companies as part of some convoluted con whether those companies are good or bad. Those who actually read our site will know that very few of the companies we have attacked have been anything other than disasters for investors. The one we got wrong and admitted as much was Boohoo. But boy did we make some gutsy calls in 2016 - we had a bumper year of fraud busting.

I start with a quick discussion on how we in the UK just don't get US politics and explain why Donald Trump will win - in fact he is already 8% ahead you read it HERE first! Then I explain why Peel Hunt is probably going to bully me with a lawyers letter regarding the Berkeley Energia (BKY) note HERE. My proposition for Steffi is not to make an honest woman of her...that would be going too far but concerns her worthless client Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and is prompted by her unhappiness at my earlier Bearcast Special HERE. I look at Andalas (ADL), Greka Drilling (GDL) and BlueRock Diamonds (BRD). I am now trying to renew my father's parking permit with Warwickshire County Council and have been kept hanging on a line for ages by the incompetent bastards. String em up with piano wire..

As yet African Potash (AFPO) has not started the process of suing me for libel for pointing out that it committed securities fraud, something it effectively conceded it had done in its fascist lawyers letter/suicide note of last week. One of the joys of the UK libel system is disclosure. That is a process where I can ask the other side to produce certain documents which are relevant to the case. And African Potash knows that disclosure will sink it for good. So let's bring it on and I shall be starting with seeking details of payments made by Potash to Beryl Holdings.

I have today published the lawyers letter sent by Memery Crystal - lawyers to Globo - but which also acts for the fraudsters African Potash (AFPO) demanding money from me, trying to gag me but also admitting that its client has committed securities fraud. The letter also implies that Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald approved releases (and lack of releases) which meant investors in a placing on 12 January 2016 were utterly deceived as to the trading position at Potash. 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.

Bully boy lawyers Memery Crystal want me to pay its costs, damages to the fraudsters at African Potash (AFPO), to unpublish 18 articles about the fraudsters and not to write again pointing out that African Potash has committed fraud. But the lawyers letter itself offers fresh admissions that massive fraud has taken place. The lawyers also warned me not to publish what is effectively a suicide note for Potash, i.e the Memery Crystal letter (sent incidentally to the wrong address, a made up email). So...

Still no lawyers letter from African Potash (AFPO) has arrived at Sheriff Towers. It really is like waiting for Godot. But at least my mother in law has remembered that it is my wedding anniversary tomorrow. I discuss another thing happening tomorrow, that is to say African Potash which has no cash having to repay $1.1 million to its FD's Mrs, Katrina Clayton. I look at Highland Natural Resources (HNR), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Glenwick (GWIK), Opera (OPRA) and then Gable (GAH) which really has posted a most enormous red flag today. Sell - target 0p.

Are you a pissed off shareholder in Teathers Financial (TEA), Inspirit (INSP), Octagonal (OCT) or any other company associated with Justin and Jason Drummond or Nilesh Jagatia? If so you are going to get even more pissed off as I have obtained and publish below a lawyers letter which exposes wholesale fraud and deception at their last outfit Media Corp (MDC). It is shocking.

I shall put the photo up later on TomWinnifrith.com but this is the first snake of the current greek trip - day 6 and one down!. I am a modest man, as you know, but feel that I have little to be modest about in saying that this really is a most excellent podcast covering Nostra Terra (NTOG), Avanti Communications (AVN) and a new lawyers letter,, Outsourcery (OUT) and LGO Energy (LGO) all in some detail.

This is becoming a bit of an annual ritual. And it is always a kiss of death for an PLC that tries to bully UK Investor Show speakers with fascist lawyers letters. Like it really worked out well for blinkx (BLNX) did it not? So which PLC has made its shares a slam dunk sell with a fascist lawyers letter last night reminding us that they have bought a ticket and we are being watched and threatening awful things. You vote in our latest poll - deadline midnight tonight. Is it:

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...

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 have just been tipped off that someone is about to send a lawyer's letter seeking an injunction. I know who. But can you guess? Needless to say I shall see the bitchez in Court. So it is time for another reader poll. Who wants to gag me?

Actually I shall keep you in suspense on that one - so you can still vote in the TW libel poll HERE - but I do discuss what a lamentable effort this fascist missive is when compared to previous bully boy lawyers letters. Then it is onto Guscio (GUSC), Plastics Capital (PLA) and the farce that are LTIPs and then onto the failings of capitalism in the US and UK and why we are sleepwalking on soma with no real wealth being created.

I have not had a lawyer’s letter for seven months and was feeling rather miffed about it but in a great end to the week I have just got one. It goes without saying that this is a fight I shall relish. I shall see these bitchez in Court and I shall win. All will be revealed tomorrow but would you care to guess which scumbag has sent the letter? Vote by midnight Friday.

On 19 August 2014 Quindell (QPP) put a statement up on its website about someone it dismissed as a "blogger" accusing me - for it was me - of making it all up and promising shareholders that it would take legal action against me. A truly fascistic lawyers letter (in full below) from legal eagles Dorsey & Whitney arrived the same day. It demanded that by 4 PM that day (ie within hours) I must withdraw all artices, sign an apology drafted by Quindell and that if I did not that Quindell would seek an injunction and sue me for damages and costs. Fuck you Quindell, Robert Terry and Dorsey & Whitney, see you bitchez in court.

Jeepers, I have not had a lawyers letter threatening me for almost seven weeks. Life was almost getting boring but I am - at a stroke - reinvigorated. It goes without saying that I am not backing down and have sent a pretty terse reply just now. So which POS enterprise is wasting its shareholders cash this time? Time for a new reader poll - I'll reveal the correct answer when we get to the next stage. have fun:

And so the lawyer’s letter – well email – from Worthington PLC (WRN) to me has arrived. And as with lawyers letters from Quindell, Sefton, blinks, Globo and others it is now on display at Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House. In fact it is on display in the gents as you can see below.

Great News! Is it once more into the breach dear friends? Can I add a lawyer’s letter from Worthington (WRN) to those already received from blinkx, Globo, Range Resources, Sefton, Quindell, LSE.co.uk and other scumbags? I wonder. In case you are tempted Worthington “your company is a fraud” – I have seen off bigger scumbags than you and I really do not fear you at all.

Its only taken 15 days and I have just picked up my first lawyers letter of the year. It is full of the usual cocktail of factual innacuracies, made up quotes and threats.

Quindell (QPP) sent me not one but two lawyer’s letters as it attempted to bully me into stop exposing its lies and fraud. What Quindell shareholders might want to ask Rob Terry is how much of their cash he pissed away on this exercise. The second letter came on 11th September from the most expensive law firm in libel, the motherfuckers at Schillings. And I now bring that to you.

On 19th August 2014, Quindell’s (QPP) lawyers wrote to me giving me eight hours to agree to withdraw all articles about Quenron, sign a grovelling apology written by them ( how fucking Stalinist) and not to write again. Otherwise I was threatened with a number of measures including injunction and a libel case. I replied within the deadline that I would see the bitchez in Court.

I have this morning received a lawyer’s letter from Quindell (QPP) as has ShareProphets. It does not cite any specific factual errors made by me but none the less demands that I withdraw all articles on ShareProphets, put my name to an apology and admission of God knows what else drafted by Quindell and that I never write about the company again. Is this not a tad Stalinist?
