Lying thieving stockmarket fraudster James Longley forgets Sam Antar's first and second rules of fraud

By Tom Winnifrith, The Sheriff of AIM | Wednesday 6 December 2017

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

The great Sam is clear. The job of a fraudster is to steal as much money as possible. So rule one is never do anything which distracts you from theft. Rule two is to ignore your critics completely. Firstly because attacking them breaks rule one, it leaves less time for stealing and secondly because it only goads the critics and gives them the oxygen of publicity. That brings us to James Longley of Plutus Powergen (PPG), Fandango Holdings (FHP), Papillion Holdings (PPHP) and Stranger Holdings (STHP) who is a liar, fraudster and thief.

Natch he is the sort of man any decent stock exchange would have nothing to do with but in London it is okay to list a company saying you had invested £200,000 and would only take out £50,000 in fees but not actually put in that money ( while other investors did thinking you were in too) but then take out £216,000 in fees. So that is lying, fraud and theft and that is what Longley and business partner Charles Tatnall did at Papillion as Cynical exposed HERE.

So James Longley is a liar, a thief and a fraudster. We all know that yet many in the City seem happy to continue to act for him. Those with a moral compass would cold shoulder this scoundrel at once. Anyhow back to Longley breaking rule 2.

You may remember how Longley seems so convinced that I am Cynical Bear who has unmasked him ( I am not for the avoidance of doubt, as any typo watcher could spot easily) that he set upo a dormant company Whinny-Froth Limited as I revealed here.

James has now changed the name at Companies House as you can see in the screen shot below.

Well Mr Longley you may regard me as a halfwit. You may be right. I am the first to agree with Socrates on the subject of my own intelligence. But what is beyond doubt is that you are not only a liar, a fraudster and a thief but also a very silly boy for breaking Sam's golden rules of fraud.
