Pacific Tycoon Tries to Silence Tom Winnifrith – it fails

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 15 May 2014


A number of financial websites have taken cash from the Pacific Tycoon company in return for promoting its get rich quick schemes to their readers. We absolutely 100% refuse to carry its advertising and now it is trying to get me to withdraw a hostile article I penned more than a year ago. Guess what? I have withdrawn nothing. Indeed…

Readers can do what they wish with their money but, put it this way, I would regard a portfolio of shares in Quindell, Cupid, Iofina, Range Resources, blinkx and Globo  as a better home for your cash than with Pacific Tycoon. I am not saying this is an investment scam. My original article presented the facts and readers can draw their own conclusions.

Pacific complains about my article from February 2013. It stated by email:

 Hi Tom, there is a content in your site that harm our online reputation. Here is the link.........

Please delete it.



Hmmmmmm.  Look fellows, you appear to have a poor grasp of the English language and seem to think that my job is either to obey your demands or to help with your image issues. It is not. You could always hire an expensive PR firm and get PR arse lickers on Fleet Street to write up your investment proposition but that is not really my bag.

So while I will correct any factual inaccuracy, Pacific has not actually pointed out any such inaccuracies in my less than complimentary piece.

As such I will keep the link up on my personal blog and via Shareprophets am delighted to bring this fine piece of journalism to a wider audience.

  2. Hi,

    I agree with you. Ted Mallory said to us that insurance is covered by them. Techinally you’re the owner of the container you have a right to know what’s going in there. He also told us that we wouldn’t need to worry about storage charged and so on, however in his leads docs he states that container owner is liable for this.. Hmmmm fishhhhhy READ YOURE LEASE DOCs BEFORE SIGNING UP CONTAINERS ARE UNDER SINGAPORE LAW ??? Hmmmm

    That error of grammar speak volumes. Although we all make them(!) and it would be petulant to take issue with them in informal, non-professional correspondence, and although their grasp of English is no doubt light years ahead of my grasp of Mandarin (or whatever), how much would it have cost to have had this proof-read / compiled by a professional interpreter?!

    Anyway, keep up the good work and all the best to you and yours for the ‘season’ and the new year.

    If it is based in Singapore, English is the Official language of the legal system. Hmmmm…..
