Advanced Oncotherapy is a slam dunk short

I should declare that I am a shareholder in this company. I bought 1 share a few years ago so that I could attend its AGM to quiz the management on the catalogue of lies they had told to investors.  Then covid struck. On a properly regulated market Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) would have been given the order of the boot years ago, but this is AIM.

Another Deepverge turd for Gerry “the arse” Brandon to polish – death spiral kicks in October

On 23 June 2022 Gerry “the arse” Brandon, a man who broke AIM Rules 10 and 11 before his last bailout placing last summer, served up calendar 2021 results noticeable for their prodigious cashburn but the most bullish of statements about the jam arriving tomorrow, or in fact this year.. How things can change.

Revolution Beauty; Lack of profits warning, shares collapse – a new posterboy for the 2021 IPO hall of shame

On 19 July last year Revolution Beauty (REVB) joined the AIM Sewer raising £110.7 million by issuing new shares and with founders dumping £189.3 million of shares at 160p.  After a warning today about dismal trading which is so bad that it begs the question of whether Revolution will go bust, the shares are 26p. This is a new posterboy for the AIM 2021 IPO class of shame and advisers Zeus Capital should be asked some real questions.

After the pump – well, what do you expect from UK Oil & Gas?

Golden rules of AIM, Number 34: If there is a ‘y’ in the day, Lyin’ Steve Sanderson is either pumping or dumping. On 20 July, just three weeks after the last ramptastic update from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), came a full operational update.

Caption contest: What does a fat cat bankster do while mug investors count their losses on his small cap clients?

As you sweat in your place of work trying to earn an honest crust, think of the banksters who list so many crap AIM and Standard Listed stocks for you to lose money on. What are they doing today? It seems that at least one has now decided what sort of champagne to swill and as he rests at his luxury Cornish second home, Mr Andrew Monk of VSA Resoiurces has time on his hands and tweets of his arduous day ahead.

Why, oh why, Is Ironveld turning down Richard Jennings funding offer?

The latest spat involving Richard “nobody likes me and I don’t care” Jennings of Align Research, is with AIM hound, Ironveld Resources (IRON). Inexplicably, Jennings has offered Ironveld money at 1p. Even more inexplicably, Ironveld has said no, forgetting that beggars cannot be choosers. Jennings has fired off the letter below, which is, as you’d expect, forthright and menacing.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Once Again, Deepverge Grotesquely Misleads Investors

Last year, AIM sewer poster boy,  Deepverge (DVRG), did a placing at 30p. It had misled investors on trading, and its ghastly CEO, Gerry “the arse” Brandon, slated me as not understanding investment. Today, the shares are 10.5p, after awful finals in which, as I explain in this bonus podcast, the company again – by omission rather than act – materially misleads investors. If you own this stock, lube up; there is more pain coming your way.

Paul Shackleton starts work at top Nomad Peel Hunt today – a reminder of his work as an enabler of fraud

I guess that enabling crime does pay.  But if bosses at Peel Hunt had a shred of integrity they would not be welcoming  corporate financier Mr Paul Shackleton through the front door today. Indeed, they would be joining me in suggesting that Shackleton should never ever work in thee City again. AIM is a sewer not only because it is home to so many frauds but because of men like Shackleton who enable fraud. Below is a link to a £185 million court case about a fraud where Shackleton was a, if not the, key enabler.

Verditek statement needed asap – the Fat Lady is gargling, is she not?

Each January, AIM-listed Verditek (VDTK) – chaired by Tory toff, Lord David Willetts – would issue a trading statement, covering the calendar year. It was never anything to write home about, as, despite announcing huge orders ahead of a discounted placing, none would turn into actual er….orders. So, this was typically a January confessional. But in 2022, there was no trading statement.

Eurasia – suspension lifted, an insane twist but what did the Nomad REALLY say to the moron?

On Monday 16 May at 7.40 AM, shares in AIM listed Bulletin board darling Eurasia Mining (EUA) were temporarily suspended at just under 8p “pending an announcement.” At 6.18PM on Tuesday 17th  (today) came that announcement. Eurasia “confirms it has no material new developments to notify” and so trading will resume on Wednesday 18th. So the shares were suspended for two days for an announcement that nothing had changed. That is insane. It gets more insane.

Will I make money? I doubt it so this is like most stocks on AIM but this is a good cause.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Union Jack is now the most toxic stock on AIM

I comment on day three of the Greek Hovel olive harvest, a good day but a long one. But I start with Peter Brailey’s piece on Union Jack Oil (UJO) and explain why the company is now possibly the most toxic on AIM. I then look, en passant, at Amala Foods (DISH) and in detail at Tern (TERN) and Argo Blockchain (ARB).

DO THE EFFING MATHS MORONS: Tern - why its shares should more than halve even AFTER today’s circa 20% fall

AIM listed investment dog run by charlatans, Tern (TERN) has dashed the hopes of the Bulletin Board Morons when it issued the Device Authority funding update RNS which revealed that Device was not worth billions or even hundreds of millions but less than $40 million for 100% of the company based on latest funding round which included a new third-party technology investor (which presumably would have been granted access to the latest accounts, budgets and been able to assess the technology). Let us pray for those morons too stupid to listen to our countless warnings and thank heavens that the Salvation Army will be there to assist them this Christmas.

BREAKING SCANDAL ON AIM: Has SP Angel been dumping shares while telling folks to buy yet again? It’s Union Jack Oil

A couple of years ago we exposed how SP Angel had been ramping the arse off Bluejay Mining (JAY) with ludicrous price targets while secretly dumping its entire holding at a fraction of the stated target. In other words it was selling its shares to the same folks who wanted to buy because of its ramping. SP Angel should have lost its license from the FCA then and the regulators should have been pressing charges against the individuals involved. The regulators did nowt and now we come to Union Jack Oil (UJO).

BREAKING: Winnileaks Special - ADM Energy and the $1.75 million legal threat it neglected to mention

During the next 24 hours I shall be published a number of articles showing that AIM listed ADM Energy (ADME) has consistenly misled investors as to the state of its finances while raising money in new placings. I shall look at where some of that cash went and who was aware of it, including former Tory MP Sir (now Lord) Henry Bellingham of the the 3DM fraud infamy who is a NED. At the end of the series you will be in no doubt that this company’s shares are utterly worthless and that those hawk like watchdogs at AIM Regulation, the folks fomerly referred to as the Oxymorons, should be swooping to feel collars both at ADM but also acting against its advisors. I start with a letter sent to the Winnileaks service which ADM received on 9 July 2021.

Surely advisers and AIM Regulation would not allow such scallywags a second chance?

Vox Markets and the Companies House Filings - Has Justin the Clown been rumbled?

As you may recall, the business model of Vox Markets is that companies pay £15,000 a year to get interviewed by Justin the Clown who then asks the CEO whether he prefers Hob Nobs or Jaffa Cakes and whether his schlonger is ginormous or merely massive. The sort of AIM and Standard Listed companies that sign up, hope that such interviews can move the share price so allowing the next bailout placing. Maybe those companies have finally worked out that nobody takes the Clown seriuously and this business model is finally being rumbled. I see interesting filings at Companies House.

BREAKING: Explosive Winnileaks email on Vast Resources - WH Ireland refuses to act for the firm and slates Prelea, Fatty Cornish doesn't care

In March this year WH Ireland was approached to become joint broker to Vast Resources (VAST). It conducted due diligence and that threw up so many red flags about the business but also about boss Andrew Prelea that WH Ireland said that  it could not act.  The email exchange detailing this has found its way via Winnileaks to myself and is published below. It is damning and all credit to WH Ireland for putting principle before profit. But Nomad Roland Fatty Cornish has been made aware of the same issues and appears to think that a) it is just after two so time for the third course of a six course luncheon and b) that he should just carry on taking the cash come what may.  Lunches don’t pay for themselves after all. Enablers like Fatty are why AIM is a sewer. I am aware of a number of matters which WH Ireland discovered and anyone owning shares in Vast is truly certifiable.

But the events of the past two years at Eurasia Mining (EUA) have shown that those who want to run rings around Marcus and the clowns who work for him don’t have to try too hard.  I have written to Marcus and his colleagues about the farce at Eurasia and the supposed bid talks. Enough is enough. Will AIM Regulation force a statement? The answer to that one may involve myself and Ms Cheryl Cole.

[email protected] Capital – More CV Bull-shit

In my article of 22 July, I revealed the piss poor CV of David Bull, the new Non-Executive Director for [email protected] Capital (SYME). In the career summary issued via the RNS, he managed to omit key facts such as his close links to outgoing Chairman Dominic White (in his capacity as a Non-Executive Director of Dominic White’s Eight Capital Partners Plc) and his prior role as CFO of now suspended AIM share PCF Group Plc (PCF) caused by a number of deficiencies in PCF’s financial control and reporting function.

After 2813 days it is ouzo on cornflakes time for the Sheriff of AIM as G3 declared insolvent

2813 days ago after being jerked around and threatened with legal action by its odious PR man, I, nonetheless, published the bloody dossier on Green Dragon Gas, which latterly became G3 Exploration (G3E). Though it has been obviously bust for a while, today it was forced to admit to it. Shame on that PR man, shame on boss Randeep Grewal and shame on those who promoted this enterprise. Today, after almost a year of denial, the Fat Lady has sung.

Tom Winnifrith Photo Bearcast: Celebrating the Eden triumph but humiliated by Andrew Bell again

I start with logistical issues. Thanks to Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR), I need to find another hat to eat on video. This may take a while but I am a man of my word. I discuss Red Rock and why Bell has let me down. I end with a picture of where I was at lunchtime with Joshua celebrating today’s personal triumph re Eden Research and KPMG. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) where surely the FCA or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation must act now. Today’s news begs more questions for the AIM Shit of the year 2012-20, Richard Gill, aka Gollum. Then onto Hurricane Energy (HUR), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Eight Capital Partners (ECP) part of the [email protected] Capital (SYME) swamp.

Versarien – Time for some more honest disclosures about the Graphene business performance

Shoddy AIM promote Versarien (VRS) presents and markets itself as graphene led business.  Its annual reports contain huge narrative detail on its graphene business but the plastics and hardware business barely get a mention (limited to a paragraph or two for each).  Furthermore, its recent acquisitions being Hanwha Aerospace for £4.34 million and Gnanomat for £3.0 million were both in the graphene space and the graphene business now represent the majority of the goodwill on the balance sheet.  It had a recent strategic investment by a South Korean firm called Graphene Lab.  Its retail investor base is clearly focused on the potential for hockey stick growth in revenue and profits from graphene products as relentlessly promoted by loathsome CEO Neill Ricketts.

Is seven Nomads in less than eight years a record breaker? Why does Versarien have so many bust ups?

Most AIM sewer companies have, perhaps, 2 Nomads every five years. Sometimes your company grows so you upgrade to a bigger firm. Or the reverse can happen. Or maybe a Nomad goes bust. Or perhaps you just have a personality clash. But to have multiple Nomads suggests something worse is afoot, that the Nomads might actually be baulking at what is going on. In that vein, consider the record of Versarien (VRS).

Bidstack: now days away from being out of cash, bailout placing needed ASAP but when’s the dire trading warning?

Surely, before undertaking a bailout-discounted placing with bucket shops, a company has to come clean and admit that trading is way below what had been forecast? Those are the AIM Rules but Lyin’ James Draper and Bidstack (BIDS) do not give a rat’s arse about rules and neither, it seems, do the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. On 22 April, house broker & Nomad Stifel slashed its 2021 and 2022 sales forecasts and upped its forecast losses for Bidstack but the company is yet to admit that trading has fallen off a cliff. But today with cash down to almost nothing and staring down the barrel of insolvency, surely it must be made to ‘fess up?  Here are the maths:

Has Bidstack issued a horrible warning but only for clients of Stifel – does AIM Regulation give a feck as insolvency looms?

If there is a material change in your trading outlook, as an AIM Company you have a duty to inform the market at once, as per AIM Rules 10 and 11. But if you are Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS) you do not give a flying fuck about the rules. So has he issued a horrible lack of sales/increased losses warning by simply speaking to the analyst at house broker Stifel who slashes forecasts? Is it the case that as of Friday clients of Stifel heard the bad news, other morons who owned the stock did not. And the news, is rumoured to be dire. Cretinous low grade PR firm Buchanan, employers of the journalist smearing fraudsters PR of choice Henry Harrison-Topham, are failing to answer emails or calls on this matter but should get off its fat collective arse and issue an RNS or at least say this is not true if it is not true.

David Lenigas was unable to float his poxy related party spoof Lenigas Cuba on AIM or the Standard List as regulators objected to the way he awarded himself gazillions of founder shares at peanuts before raising money shortly after from mug punters at a vast premium.  There was no justification for the uplift it was just greed and even the AIM sewer and the FCA regulated (no sniggering at the back) Standard List have some standards. Luckily Aquis has no standards and so Lenigas Cuba listed there. Of course it ended in tears. But that established that Aquis has no qualms about quite appalling greed. Take NFT Investments.

Versarien – another climbdown with a bogus excuse: another Victory for the Sheriff of AIM

On 21 January, joke graphene company Versarien (VRS) published interim results which misled investors as to its net debt position by classifying a £1.96 million (illegal) Government loan as a trade payable not as a loan. Having deceived folks with this presentation, loathsome boss Neill Ricketts was again selling shares, this time 1.65 million of them.  Now, after I complained to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad SP Angel of fraud MySquar infamy, Versarien has ‘fessed. But even so, it does so in a misleading and deceptive fashion reinforcing why its shares are so utterly uninvestable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 4 valuations that are utterly bonkers, one where the FCA must open a new enquiry

I start with the Poulden/Lenigas/Peterhouse/Mir ramp Upper Thames (UPPT). Then it is onto Ridgecrest (RDGC) where I go through the exact timeline of events and all the issues which the FCA should examine in a formal enquiry. Then I have new questions for Zoetic (ZOE) and its loathsome PR Mr Henry Halfwitted-TopHat, formerly the PR of choice to Chinese fraudsters on AIM, about District 8, the RTO and what actually happened and finally comment on the weekend analysis of Versarien (VRS).

A shocker from the small cap sewer: Upper Thames, KR1 and the four horsemen of the rampfest

We live in times of sheer insanity. It is a rampers’ paradise and cometh the day cometh the four horsemen of the rampfest apocalypse. I bring you a tale of sheer insanity from the Aquis lobster pot market, formerly the NEX Exchange. It starts with what was once PGC Entertainment (PGCE), a serial uber dog which was eventually slung off the AIM casino. I should say that its boss is my pal Richard Poulden.

More vindication after 5 years: Bahamas Petroleum shares crash – Simon Potter is a rotter

For years AIM sewer listed Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) has spun the line that all it needed was a farm in partner to unlock massive potential for oil in the Bahamas. For years I have called out CEO Simon “Harry” Potter as a useless and grossly overpaid promoter who should be fired – here is a piece from 2015. And warned that this stock was just not investment grade - you can see a series of exposes and scoops HERE.  Sadly Potter was not fired in 2015 and today – with him having hauled out well over £5 million in compensation – since his 2011 appointment when the spoof started, the house of cards has collapsed. It will get worse.

Terpenetech 2019 accounts out – the Eden Research 2015 Panama Pump fraud (now) endorsed by KPMG laid bare

The 2019 accounts for Eden, signed off by KPMG, still pretend that this is a legitimate deal. But Terpenetech’s own accounts for calendar 2019 are, finally, just out and the fraud is there for all to see.

Letter to AIM Regulation – Verditek: there must be a formal enquiry into the pre-placing deceit

Yesterday Verditek (VDTK) finally ‘fessed that its 2020 revenues would be almost nothing. That is despite it announcing on June 30 that its Italian operation was now “in production and is generating revenue” and the announcement of no less than EIGHT separate orders from 30 June onwards. All of those “orders” were announced before a bailout placing on October 6. And it is not as if this company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, has not got extensive form in announcing big orders before placings which then turn out to be bogus. The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation could have stopped this if they had heeded my calls in letter to them about a full enquiry into past pre placing deceits going back right to the IPO but they did nothing. There now needs to be a full enquiry into the company and into Nomad WH Ireland with public censures resulting. My letter is below:

Vassilios Carellas of Arc Minerals (ARCM) sent me a photo one what his team found in one of the tents last week. This guy won’t be posting on the LSE Asylum any more. Enjoy.

How should a cash-strapped enterprise spend its last pennies? ref. Verditek

What would you do if you were running a PLC with almost no cash and which was burning cash? It is a position I have been in and it is not a good place to be. You cut costs perhaps? Or you just do whatever is needed to raise fresh equity whatever the cost involved in doing that… And that brings me back, once again, to Verditek (VDTK), the AIM listed company that should win prizes for telling outright lies about bogus contract wins in the run up to fundraises. It has offended in this respect so many times since its August 2017 listing that on the Upper Volta Stock Exchange or any other market on this planet it would have been chucked off long ago. But this is AIM and the chairman, Lord Willetts, is a Tory Toff so the show just goes on.

Versarien, Neill Ricketts and sleazy death Spiral provider Lanstead – just who told the biggest lie?

Take Pity and bail out the dogs supported by Richard Jennings of Align

No!  The dogs to whom I refer are not Ascent Resources (AST) and other pond life companies residing at the bottom end of the AIM sewer who are blessed with enthusiastic Align Research reports penned by the halfwitted enabler of fraud and smearer of journalists Dr Michael Green. But to a far more worthy cause as you can see below.

BREAKING: Verditek – now tell us the truth about Optimeyes, time to come clean Tory Toff Lord Willetts

Spotting misleading and deceptive RNS statements made by technically insolvent AIM listed ramp Verditek (VDTK) is like shooting fish in a barrel. The skill is in finding one that is demonstrably true! Given that the company needs a placing pronto to avoid bankruptcy, AIM Regulation and the FCA should be investigating all its statements made via RNS to establish if ANY are true, given how many pre-placing lies I have unearthed. So here is yet another one… Optimeyes.

Even now, having belatedly slashed costs, Xeros (XSG), the company founded to disrupt the world of washing machines, does not expect break even until Q2 2022. What could possibly go wrong? I reckon there is more chance of me shagging Cheryl Cole by Q2 2022 than of this company reaching breakeven by 2022 but we shall see. Anyhow if you are tempted, not by Cheryl – that is a given – but by Xeros here is your chance.

A personal letter to the head of AIM Regulation Marcus Stuttard re Bidstack and investor deception

I have now written not once but twice to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation regarding the misleading RNS Reach issued by Bidstack PLC (BIDS) on Friday 17 April. The Oxymorons and indeed hapless Mark Brady at Nomad SPARK have yet to respond. So enough of monkeys, I have written directly to Marcus Stuttard, head of AIM Regulation, as you can see below.

Another letter to AIM Regulation re Bidstack - time to suspend the shares

The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and hapless Nomad Mark Brady at SPARK have yet to reply to my letter of Saturday about Bidstack (BIDS), the almost bankrupt company led by Lyin’ James Draper which, I believe, (again) deceived investors last Friday. so I have penned a follow up missive. Surely the time has come to suspend the shares. The letter is below.

BREAKING: New explosive Gabriel Grego dossier - Akazoo, InternetQ as was, is a total Norfolk, has to be a zero!

The latest dossier from Gabriel Grego is damning. I believe he has spotted a nailed down fraud that will go to zero. Grego is presenting in New York this afternoon  and of course at the ShareProphets show on May 9 -  but the dossier is below. We are mentioned at the front of Grego’s dossier for exposing this as a fraud four years ago when it was known as InternetQ (INTQ) - as you can see HERE  . Our work saw the company delisted from AIM with management and Martin Hughes of Tosca Fund taking it private. They then renamed it Akazoo and relisted it in the US. Gabriel shows the company is still a total fraud. Enjoy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Do not celebrate my Optibiotix humiliation too much & the murky uber ramp at AAA

I start with a note on Bidstack (BIDS), which I shall be taking up with AIM Regulation over the weekend and end with Future (FUTR) which needs to issue a profits warning. In the middle I go therough the very murky tale at AIM listed All Active Asset (AAA) which sees uber ramper Chris Akers in action and Peterhouse Corporate Finance boss Peter Greensmith make a £768,000 killing in his private vehicles while acting as broker and pulling the strings at AAA and also acting as broker to suspended AIM stock Asimilar which is involved in this strange tangle. Then it is onto Optibiotix (OPTI) and a small placing. But this is not a bailout as Cynical will no doubt claim but,possibly a gateway, to a mega re-rate as I explain.

Then a look at Debenhams whose demise I regard as a silver lining from the Covid 19 cloud. I think Zombie firms should all perrish. But the main part of this podcast looks at Executive Greed and with firms asking either investors or the taxpayers for a bailout now is an ideal time to lance this boil.

Limitless Earth – yet more evidence of the utter incompetence of Nilesh Jagatia

The prices of all AIM stocks are now essentially a binary bet. They are either 100% overvalued as they will go bust or, having collapsed, are fundamentally incredibly cheap as they are not going bust whatever the share price says. Optibiotix (OPTI) is very much in the latter category. I accept folks are panicking generally or they are facing margin calls elsewhere and have to sell shares to meet them. That however is not what will drive the share price in the long run…

Letter to AIM Regulation: After latest Versarien revelation, share dumping Neill Ricketts not fit to be PLC director, please act now

I am not saying that Versarien (VRS) should be slung off the AIM Casino although it is a worthless POS heading rapidly for a cash crisis as it, again, runs out of other people’s money. However, the latest expose about the antics of its CEO Neill Ricketts makes it abundantly clear that he is not fit to run a listed PLC. Since Nomad SP Angel of MySquar infamy will act for any old fraud and does not care I have written to AIM Regulation, which yesterday- after communications from me – forced the company into a fourth fess up RNS in a little over a month - asking that it force him to stand down from the Versarien board.

But fear not morons, when you have lost all your money and Versarien has been booted off AIM, a then 100% vindicated Sheriff will cease coverage… meanwhile I bet Neill Rocketts is glad he sold so many shares even if he was not 100% honest about the reason!

It was one of Lucian’s sell tips of the year HERE and he, and I, reckon that fair value is sub 10p.  Eurasia Mining (EUA) is another AIM casino ramp which, on fundamentals, looks to be massively overvalued. I would not be a buyer of the stock even if it fell by two thirds from the current 4p.

Last year I forced Versarien (VRS) to issue a clarifying RNS after Neill Ricketts made unverified and it seems untrue claims on twitter. Nomad Bobbie Hilliam at Canaccord read Ricketts the riot act and his twitter outpourings have been greatly diminished. But I can reveal that he has a new conduit on a private chat group on Discord. I doubt his Nomad or AIM Regulation are aware of it but thanks to Winnileaks they will be soon and will be horrified as I have a series of screenshots to share.

AIM Market – another year of decline: fewer companies in total but more bad ones among them, the real data...

The statistics for AIM for December 2019 show that the market contracted to 863 companies its lowest number since 2003.  The real concern for the LSE should be the shockingly low number of new listings a derisory 23, the lowest number of new issues ever since the market as formed in 1995.  The quantum of new monies raised was also very low by historic standards at £489 million and this figure is not adjusted for the impact of inflation.

ValirX: Open letter to Nomad Cairn Financial - time to reissue RNS

I do not wish to be seen as a pedant but an RNS statement is meant to be, you know, like, er, accurate. And thus as an upstanding member of the AIM Casino community I have penned a quick email to my pal Liam Murray at Nomad Cairn Financial about today’s RNS from ValirX (VAL) which appears to fail the accuracy test. I write.

Oracle Power – the insider dealing Sheikh on the Make strikes again and the morons fall for it

How insane is this even by the standards of the AIM Cesspit? In late August this year I exposed how Sheikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum had invested in a placing by what was MX Oil (MXO) got it to change its name to ADM Energy (ADM) in his honour as he became President, saw the shares rocket, and then sold all his shares before announcing he was quitting sending the shares crashing from 20p to 4.5p today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: from Sefton to Bidstack, corporate lying is fraud but at last 1 regulator is smelling the coffee

NoGold has still not been in touch regarding the £50 he owes me. It seems as if my good mates at the FRC really are getting tough on executives who commit accounting fraud. Fabbo. But I ask for more. And what of lying? It is fraud of a different sort and I have strong suggestions for what the FCA and especially the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation already can do and very rarely do do but need to do so more often to drain the swamp and put me out of a job.

Another triumph for AIM: Labour Lord Alli’s Koovs goes bust

Well you cannot say you were not warned about Koovs (KOOV) by this website numerous times. This Bearcast from January 11 2016 (Koovs disgusts me) is pretty explicit. The City Crony capitalists loved the Indian retailer as its momentous losses meant it was a fee cash cow. I dread to think how much coke & hookers cash this company generated for the City.  Our full list of warnings are here and should be preserved as, today, the administrators were called in, the Nomad quit and the Fat Lady moved centre stage.

Top 50 most-read articles and podcasts on the Quindell fraud - this is going to get very topical again soon

A couple of conversations last week make me convinced that the day when the SFO brings the Quindell (QPP) fraudsters to book for what was a £3 billion con is not that long away. We know that the fraudster in chief, Rob Terry, emerged terrified from his second interview with the SFO in July, as I revealed HERE, and that the SFO has been on the case for almost six years. I believe the wheels of justice are finally starting to turn and in that vein bring you a reminder of our 50 most read articles and listened to podcasts on AIM’s biggest ever fraud. I should also say that new documents have fallen into my possession that the authorities do not yet have. They will get them this week AFTER I publish them here as they are explosive. Meanwhile back to the top 50. Enjoy!

Then I look at the 3 most overpromoted stocks on AIM, Bidstack (BIDS), Versarien (VRS) and AFC Energy (AFC), the common themes and why shares in all three will eventually collapse. But there is a warning for the bears too. Then it is onto the up to £15 million Appbox Media, One True View scandal I exposed this week HERE.

Vindication 2, Verseon – Neil Woodford dog to leave AIM, his investors losing 99%+ in 10 months, announces bonkers plans – are the directors on Acid?

`Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); `now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!’ (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off). `Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears? I’m sure I shan’t be able! I shall be a great deal too far off to trouble myself about you: you must manage the best way you can; —but I must be kind to them,’ thought Alice, `or perhaps they won’t walk the way I want to go! Let me see: I’ll give them a new pair of boots every Christmas.’

Neil Woodford disaster of the day 1: Eddie Stobart refinancing via 25% interest rate loan, equity almost worthless

Eddie Stobart Holdings (ESL) still sees its shares suspended as the company can still not get its half year accounts bottomed out and published but a rescue plan today may well see the shares slung off AIM and the nature of the mega high interest loan injection makes it clear the equity is almost worthless. Well done Neil – this was a major holding in the Income Focus and Equity Income Funds.

BREAKING: Has Scotgold Resources misled investors on an industrial scale?

I have never been a fan of this dog from the AIM Casino kennels as my scathing coverage on this website demonstrates. But now a shareholder appears to show that Scotgold Resources (SGZ) has committed market abuse. I’d go further, I believe that it has deceived investors on an industrial scale as to its cash needs, ahead of an equity refinancing. After publication of the company’s annual report the shareholder has written to regulators flagging up the issue. I will now be contacting regulators and also the company’s shameless and disgraced Nomad SP Angel of MySquar and BlueJay Mining infamy, to pursue this matter. The shareholder, Mr C, writes:

Then it is onto reports that the stricken Woodford empire may be selling £500 million of healthcare stocks. But at what price? Then it is onto how Ed Croft of Stockopedia, the company that flagged up mega fraud Quindell as one of the top 10 AIM stocks to buy, is claiming to have “predicted” the  Neil Woodford scandal. Of course it did not but no doubt this persuades more folks to sign up to Ed’s flawed system.  Then I crow as I discuss Nanoco (NANO) which I called out as long ago as 2015 and discuss where next for Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) as its open offer flops.

Charlie Wood of Mayan Energy infamy – an era ends for AIM

News last week that AIM diluter in Chief (and that’s saying something!) Charlie Wood of Northcote Energy/Mayan Energy/Attis Oil & Gas (AOGL) reincarnations has departed stage left at Attis brings to a close a quite unprecedented record of dilution on AIM. This individual raised more than £15 million over the last few years and, in the final analysis, produced the grand sum of just over £100,000 cash at the last set of interim results and a de minimis amount of oil from the company’s Texan oil fields. If ever there was an abject illustration of how AIM is run for the cosy cartel of Nomads, brokers, PR companies and inept management rather than shareholders this is it.

But it was only able to get a placing away at that price because of spurious rumours which the company and its advisors must have been aware of and which it did nothing to quosh. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and to the chocolate teapots at the FCA requesting an urgent investigation into the company, its Nomad Allenby and broker Whitman Howard. It is not as if Tern does not have form in this respect.

If the Quindell fraudster Rob Terry is, this morning, wondering who his roomie will be when he goes down, perhaps he may be able to discuss accounting fun and games with a member of staff from Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) which has today fessed up to the scale of its problems as it admits its days on AIM are almost over.

Telit, FinnCap, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation – the endemic problems of the Casino

Telit Communications (TCM) is a case study on why the AIM Casino is such a casino. Not only does it claim to be running at a cash profit while c$20 million of cash disappears in the first half of the year. But rules are broken and the folks meant to stop that, Nomads such as FinnCrap, do nothing to prevent it happening. And the regulators then do nothing about it. So other folks feel free to offend.

St James House (formerly Boxhill Technologies plc) – still a dog as results show, accounts breach IFRS and mislead big time

Lib Dem grandee Lord Timmy Razzall may have changed the name of Boxhill to St James House (SJH) but this company which has been mired in so much corruption and fraud remains an uninvestable uber dog even by the standards of  the AIM casino. Results earlier this week were covered in bearcast yesterday but perhaps merit further scrutiny. They are shocking, breach IFRS on numerous counts and quite simply aim to decieve. Nomad Allenby should be walking.

Diversified Gas & Oil Reported to FRC – IFRS 3 why its accounts are a joke and need mammoth restatement

Yesterday I highlighted the numerous issues which make Diversified  Gas & Oil (DCOG) the most overvalued oil stock on AIM.  The crux of the issue is that its freported profits since IPO have been generated almost entirely from aggressive accounting as opposed to producing hydrocarbons. I believe its accounts breach IFRS 3 and must therefore be completely restated which will wipe out nearly all of its retained profits. Let me explain.

No doubt our wretched Prime Minister Theresa may will be cross about this but folks who care about weeding out failures and rewarding talent rather than daft quotas will not be crying. The question is whether Veltyco’s statement is true or not. Methinks it is not.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Luke Johnson's Cake and the (is it £20m) fraud, a few thoughts

In today's bearcast I start with a look at Patisserie Holdings (CAKE) run by my pal Luke Johnson and I discuss the nature of fraud. I look at Sosandar (SOS) again and get really very angry (warning bad language alert), at FastJet (FJET), Telford Homes (TEF) and the folly of Government policy, Online Blockchain (OBC), and at Urals Energy (UEN) and the folly of the AIM Cesspit.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Versarien is 11p away

In today's bearcast I look at the idea of a bear market on AIM, Cenkos (CNKS) as its CEO walks (again), Versarien (VRS), Plutus Powergen (PPG), First Derivatives(FDP), Mysquar (FRAUD), Mayan (MYN) and Wolfe Minerals (WLFE). Due to a bit of a mix-up there are a newly available handful of tickets to next week's wine, canapes, Falanx (FLX) and Premaitha (NIPT) evening in London with me ripping Dominic Frisby apart on blockchain and bitcoin as a bonus. To grab your seat for 16 October book HERE

TrakM8 AGM – another day another profits warning on the way

My long term bearishness about TrakM8 (TRAK) a company that issues misleading RNS’s, makes ludicrous acquisitions as it racks up its debts and never translates profits (a matter of opinion) into cash (a matter of fact, unless you are an AIM China fraud) is well documented here.  Of course,  Thirsty Paul Scott had cosy chats with the management and knew better than a "nutcase of the first order". Today the shares have tanked to a new multi year low after another dire statement.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: More shameless ramping & sordid Leni-maths from Horse Hill & UK Oil & Gas - the real numbers don't stack up

Below you will find shameless ramping on twitter from David Lenigas and also a link to BMD's take on the latest shameful RNS from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) on the "Gatwick Gusher." The language used in the RNS is misleading and what is served up offers no evidence at all that the shares are not grotesquely over-valued. Only a sordid festering boil on the side of AIM such as Nomad Roland "fatty" Cornish could have signed off on this tripe. There is lso a clear signal of m ore discount placings ahead with the appointment of bucket shop spivs Novum as co-broker. that means just one thing. All is explained in this bonus bearcast as I look at the real data offered not the Leni-maths.

Elon Musk's biggest fan in Greece updates his facebook page - crime does pay for Costis the Globo fraudster

Elon Musk might be forgiven for thinking that few in the business community still lve him. But he does have fans. Step forward Costis Papadimitrakopoulos the founder and CEO of Globo (GBO) which raised tens of millions of dollars in debt and bvia issuing shares on AIM and claimed to have net cash but er... did not. It was a fraud and Costis took stacks of that cash and also sold all his shares before the balloon went up after being tipped off by snot gobbler Dan McCrum lof the FT. Anyhow Costis has been busy on facebook updating his profile last month as you can see below.

Conroy Gold – Share Talk - sordid ramping at the bottom end of AIM

Share Talk is a website that takes money from, usually, crap companies. It does not appear discerning. If you are a PLC with a cheque book come on down! It does not disclose its business model and it then provides what it terms “the Independent voice across social media” or what you and I would term sordid share ramping. Shares in Conroy Gold (CGNR) are up 30%today to 13p to sell thanks to such ramping. But before you get too carried away….

A Letter to AIM Regulation: Is SP Angel fit and proper to act as a Nomad (and should the FCA investigate it as well)

Enough is enough. Yesterday John Meyer, a senior manager and large shareholder in SP Angel went onto Justin the Clown’s podcast to ramp corporate stocks such as Blue Jay Mining (JAY) without declaring an interest – his employer earns vast fees from Blue Jay as its Nomad and broker. But this is the least of SP Angel’s crimes and I wonder if its conduct over Blue Jay and MySquar (MYSQ) is, if not blatant market abuse, simply bringing the AIM Casino into disrepute. I have written to Marcus Stuttard, the head of AIM Regulation, demanding an immediate investigation into whether SP Angel should retain its Nomad license.

I have repeatedly warned against investing in Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy creation Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). Drowning in debt, burning cash and paying vast sums to CEO Rita Whittingham and her ghastly relatives on the payroll this is a dog. Today the company says that it is going to try and sell some of its (crap) assets and to save £100,000 it will delist from AIM. It could save far more by firing its deadwood staff. The shares have plunged 65% and are now just 0.6p to sell. But you should sell. SP Angel guru, the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "The Knife" Phillips sums up this farce perfectly.

On 6th December I said that a token share purchase by Jim Mellon of shares on Condor Gold (CNR) was a spoof as it was so small for Jim. Moreover Condor was running out of cash and would do a placing within months. Mellon's PR man chewed my ear off. Well hey ho today there was a placing.  A pattern of such spoofs and a subsequent placing has continued. Will I get an apology?  I also look at lessons from Flybe (FLYB) and the non bid, at Fevertree (FEVR) director share sales, at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) which is also spoofing, 13 Energy (13E) - "you say it best when you say nothing at all " - R Keating.  Then I look at uber dog Golden Saint Resources (GSR) which is leaving AIM and says it wants to go to the Standard List.

That he was able to get EIS relief added to the attraction although I still worry he will lose money on this company which I have highlighted many times (HERE) as a howling dog even by the standards of AIM. Lawson attended the AGM yesterday and reports back on what appears to have been a curate's egg in his mind. I think he is being well generous.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - if Jersey Oil & Gas needs a 15-20% discount, what price the UKOG placing?

I cannot blame Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG) for raising £20 million today. It's the smart move. But if it has to offer shares at a 15-20% discount when it's on a roll what sort of discount will UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) have to offer as it seeks to raise £5-10 million with things going badly wrong? I also look at MySquar (MYSQ) after today's article that proves FRAUD. What is not allowed on AIM these days? Would complicity in mass murder be a problem? I give up.

Chapter & Verse: How MySquar committed securities fraud on July 31 using related party companies

It is clear that Nomad SP Angel does not care if its client MySquar (MYSQ) issues lies via RNS and it has not bothered to ask the one question that would show very clearly the Securities fraud committed by its client on July 31. It is a sorry state of affairs and I shall be writing to AIM Regulation and to the chairman of the LSE later to ask that SP Angel's license be revoked as it is clearly not fit and proper to run a public lavatory let alone be a Nomad. But now for John Meyer and his fellow dullards at SP Angel here is how your client defrauded investors.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Horse Hill Maths that just don't stack up for UKOG and that $15 million placing by Cornhill "outed"

On the agenda today as I prepare for my weekly coffee morning with my baby son Joshua and the fit young mums is: Andalas (ADL) a joke broker note, MySquar (MYSQ) another RNS which is all smoke and mirrors and a desperate attempt to prop up the shares but SP Angel refuses to force the company to come clean on the lies in the last RNS and the fraud. Pathetic. I look at Interserve (IRV) and its latest dire news. We did warn you. I "out" the company that was truing to raise $15 million via Cornhill yesterday. I look at former ZAI clients whose days on AIM are numbered and finally I read across from yesterday's Horse Hill trade involving Regency (RGM) and Alba (ALBA) to show just how monstrously overvalued is, out of cash and desperate to place,  UK Oil & Gas (UKOG)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another slam dunk lie in the MySquar trading statement - time for correction number 2

Oh dear, oh dear. This is pretty simple maths although clearly beyond the wit of clueless Nomad SP Angel but in this podcast I demonstrate clearly another slam dunk lie in the MySquar (MYSQ) trading statement of last week and corrected version of this week. Time for another correction? But it gets worse. I remind you of what SP Angel needs to establish to show that MySquar only breached AIM Rules rather than committing wholesale fraud (ref July sales) but now suggest that its claims re September comparatives might bear scrutiny as well. And there are some very fishy rumours coming out of Singapore that SP Angel might consider as it decides whether to quit or not.  I move on to cover Paternoster Resources (PRS) after its latest bad news and explain why its NAV is illusory and then ask readers for help in outing which oil & gas stock Cornhill is raising $15 million for today at a discount of 12% to some share price or another.

FRAUD: MySQUAR fesses up to error in profits warning but still will not answer the big question re FRAUD

What on earth is clueless Nomad SP Angel thinking? Its client MySquar (MYSQ) last week issued a (lack of) profits warning which means that it has either committed securities fraud or merely a massive breach of AIM Rule 11. Investors need to know what its sales were in July (as opposed to the July-September average given) in order to know how bad this will be. I have pressed SP Angel to force a statement and indeed the retained broker Beaufort has - to its enormous credit - also pressed but instead...

Exclusive: AIM Kills ZAI as a Nomad - the full story the LSE is desperate you do not hear

At 5.45 PM yesterday Denzil Jenkins of the AIM Regulation team called Nomad ZAI. No-one answered so he left a message on its answerphone informing the Nomad that it was to lose its Nomad status at 6 PM that day and that its clients would be contracted at that time with the news. Jenkins followed this up with an email saying that ZAI could appeal but when you are going to lose all your clients what is the point? In fact the events of yesterday are just part of a story which shows AIM in a terrible light as a secretive and oppressive body covering its own failings with scapegoating and showing no regard for natural justice or any sense of fairness.

The next question is when does it run out of cash? Here is my best estimate.

Photo Article - Teeling Distillery Dublin ( Bearcast on tour)

I should say that my friend and comrade in veterans rugby is a non drinker. The Teeling distillery in Dublin is just two years old and is actually managed by John's two sons but the old man takes a massive fatherly interest. I recorded a bearcast in the offices there on Friday but also had a tour of what is a working distillery. You can too and if you are in Dublin I'd recommed it big time. I sould declare that Jon did not try to bribe me with any free samples. But it is never too late and he has my address..

At 2 PM yesterday, Capita Registrars signed off on a shareholder list at that point as being those who could vote at Friday's GM called to oust fat cat bosses Professor Richard Conroy and his henchwoman Maureen Jones from Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). Shortly before 2 PM the Professor called Capita and added 500,000 shares to the register - probably enough to swing the vote. What he has done is wholly illegitimate and must be reversed at once if Capita, Nomad Allenby and AIM Regulation give a damn about their own rules and common justice.

Specifically I demonstrated that its music streaming business Akazoo was a sham. The company denied this and in the end its boss Panagiotis Dimitropoulos and fund manager Tosca paid c£20 million to buy out minority shareholders and take InternetQ private. It is now called Akazoo Ltd. The Sheriff is still on the case.

.Bushveld Minerals (BMN) shareholders, aka the dumbest fucks on AIM, are still largely in denial about the fact that a major placing is imminent. This is because they do not understand the difference between profit and cashflow or indeed much else about basic accounts. I will try again. Owning 27% of a company with modest EBITDA (bullshit earnings) is not the same as having a source of cashflow. In fact I bet you an ounce of Vanadium that Vametco will not generate a free cent for Bushveld this year or next.

Of course our starting point is HERE. The auditors noting that AS AT MID AUGUST 2017 the company needed to raise fresh equity pronto to keep the lights on.

That has to change and maybe Brydon will push for that. I have sent him a letter.

Telit Communications (TCM) is spinning hard to suggest that all is well despite its founder, CEO and largest shareholder Oozi Cats being"resigned" today.

Conroy Gold - sham GM result- rebels will call another, Prof Conroy your stockmarket days are numbered, the Sheriff of AIM is coming to Dublin to get you!

I revealed on Sunday how Professor Richard Conroy had abused shareholder democracy at a sham of a GM for Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). In preventing three rebels from joining the board when that is what shareholders clearly wanted he has shown himself no longer fit to run a PLC. I can only compare his pastoral care of shareholder rights at Conroy to that handed out by the Christian Brothers to their wards at so many boys homes across Ireland in darker days of old. The Professor shames Ireland and shames AIM with his antics. Conroy has today failed to fess up to exactly what went on and also what has happened since.

UK Investor Show attendees know that this has been high on the bear's hit list for a while. Today the train wreck happened and as I write, shares in what was the most shorted stock on the casino, are 39% down at 156p. But a £199 million market cap is still a rum and coke. The shares could be 20p and I still would not buy. Pro tem I count this as another big win for the Sheriff of AIM.

We are told that the report WILL be made availlable on the website but hang on...this is crucial!

Milestone - another bailout placing ahoy from the AIM Rule Breakers

The underlying problem with Milestone Group (MSG) is that it is a crap business that never generates any cash. Thus in order to keep CEO Deborah White in the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed and to keep paying crony capitalist advisers such as shamed PR firm Walbrook (Eden, Fusionex, Advanced Oncotherapy etc) it relies on bailout placing after bailout placing with shareholders seeing value destroyed every time.

Are we starting to see the revenge of the exploited AIM private investor? Or are they being double duped

Few, other than the clowns such as Marcus Stuttard at the LSE, can argue against AIM having delivered absolutely dreadful returns for investors. Since its launch the AIM Index is down by 5.4% (dividends included). The FTSE 100 has doubled over the same period and the FTSE Small Cap Index is 250% ahead. Actually the numbers are even worse. Strip out a handful of massive winners like ASOS and Domino's Pizza and the AIM Index is into double digit losses. But are private investors who have born the brunt of this wealth destruction now getting revenge with spate of attempted boardroom purges? Yes and No.

Oddly some of the crony capitalists running lifestyle businesses on AIM are

Fusionex - last day to sell, Nomad quits, homophobic ADVFN moron J777J19 have fun!

As I had suggested might happen several times, Nomad Stifel has resigned the Fusionex (FXI) account. It could not wait for the AIM delisting on the 26th. Instead it gave notice after hours yesterday that it was quitting as Nomad and Broker with effect from 5PM today. Hooray.Game over.

Servision and that breach of AIM rules with the delayed (lack of) profits warning - is it even worse that we thought?

I have been deeply troubled by the most recent lack of profits warning from AIM listed worthless POS Servision (SEV). My initial view, expressed HERE, is that in not admitting to order slippage from December for almost six months it had committed a massive breach of AIM Rules regarding timely disclosure of price sensitive news. But I fear it may be far worse than that.

Fisking The Times & Standard Life as AIM is lambasted

The Times yesterday ran an article "Investors take aim at LSE’s mistrusted upstart - Stock exchange defends Alternative Investment Market but its critics are losing patience", which it painted as a major attack on AIM. In fact it appears to have found one new critic - Standard Life - which, having done its conkers on Fusionex (FXI) because its fund managers knew better than our writers here who issued repeated warnings, now seems to think AIM has a problem. On which fucking planet has Standard Life been for the past ten years?

So to "fiske" a dire piece by Robin Pagnamenta, Deputy Business Editor, which fails to address any of the real issues showing why journalists on the corrupt deadwood press are part of the problem not the solution. My comments are in bold.

Servision - (lack of) profits warning and surely market abuse & breach of AM Rules?

Servision (SEV) the AIM listed POS has today slipped out a horrible calendar 2016 profits warning but the fact that it has waited five and a half months to do so is surely market abuse. AIM Regulations state that price sensitive information must be anounced as soon as it is known. How on earth can the company's hapless Nomad, Allenby, tolerate this state of play? Or does it not care as long as it is paid?

Market abuse, PCGE, an honest if careless scouse tipster and the sordid underbelly of AIM

Having explained how folks paying up to 0.16p for shares in PGCE fully deserved the rogering they got on Friday after a new media rampfest turned sour I was startled to be told by some professional TW hater "but you tipped it, Doc Holiday said so". Au contraire.

I never tipped PCGE having always been bearish and indeed terming it a fraud in bearcast. But it appears that scouse blogger Doc Holiday did indeed suggest that I, well HotStockRockets, had tipped the share. That was then reported on the LSE Asylum as a fact and folks bought shares on the back of it. So is Doc guilty of market abuse?

Arian Silver: Pump & Dump, Mislead Investors, Executive Greed - why do I bother?

A chap for whom I have some time some of the time asked me why bother sticking it to Arian Silver (AGQ), a worthless piece of crap on AIM. Will it make any difference to the charade, to the game which sees userless tossers like Arian's CEO Jim Williams get ever richer, crony capitalists earn fat fees and investors get buggered again and again and again. No. My writings won't change that. And the chap is right in that it will just make a few more pathetic wretches who would rather lose money than accept the truth hate me. Yup. He is right. 

So there is a case for not bothering writing this article. But, on the other hand, if it saves one person from falling for Jim Williams' next pump and dump that is one person saved. And it is also right to point out the truth. And jusy now and again as we saw with the fraud Eden last week you get a result. So for what it is worth.

Eden: the Terpenetech fraud starts to unravel, has the first body been quietly buried?

Sure the auditors should have kicked up a fuss, the Nomad should have objected but this is AIM who cares about fraud! Of course the far bigger £600,000 fraud waited until August 2015. It was a panama pump classic as you can see here - but this is AIM and Nomad & broker ShoreCap wanted to earn big commission do a placing so everyone again turned a blind eye.

But now it has a bigger problem, OFGEM and I reckon it has every reason to be worried. Then I look at 88 Energy (88E) suspended in Oz but not on AIM ahead of a placing. Then it is on to Amur (AMC) again and to Avanti Coms (AVN) whose shares are just 14,5p. That is 14.5p too high. Finally a long look at changes in retail and what that means for us all.

But documents have now fallen into my possession, here at Winnileaks, which ask even bigger questions about FD Nilesh Jagathia who is pro tem, still FD at AIM-listed Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). After this bombshell I wonder for how long.

FRAUD Cloudtag - why did its PR advisers Tavistock resign the account?

Normally PR firms, being so utterly 100% morally bankrupt, only resign an account for an AIM PLC if the client can't pay its bills. Just now and again a PR firm finds a client so utterly fraudulent that to protect its own reputation, it walks - think the FRAUD African Potash for instance. And so that brings us to the FRAUD Cloudtag (CTAG).

The ShareProphets Dirty Dozen Resource stocks Portfolio is launched

I think we are in a crazy market for resource juniors and I am expressly NOT recommending you buy any of the shares below. But such is the madness that prevails, all sorts of mining and oil junors are seeing their shares fly. Worthless assets, crap management, no cash. Who cares? Just say you are looking at Lithium and off we go. So this is an experiment.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Corporate lying & using the wrong words: I am sounding like my father

If I sound more like my father that is a good thing for he is honest and precise in his use of language, although he would not use some of the "french phrases" which occur in this podcast. I discuss the use of language and how wording has an exact meaning - this is in relation to Coral Products (CRU) which needs to clarify something. I do not think it is a fraud and it can easily blame its useless Nomad Cairn. After what it has signed off for Cloudtag (CTAG) few will fail to accept such an excuse. I then move onto deliberate lying by AIM Companies which is actually quite rare. Gross over-promotion is quite common. I explain the difference. Cloudtag and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) are mentioned in detail in this section. In discussing what is a fact I refer to my article of yesterday on Holocaust Memorial Day which is HERE

Weekend press reports (not in the UK natch as the British press is ignoring this £2 billion City scandal for reasons one can only imagine) suggest that the FBI is now investigating. Already in France there have been arrests including that of the CEO of Areva - Atomic Anne - which bought AIM & TSX listed Uramin for £2 billion and had written all of its assets off as worthless within three years. There is also a major new investigative book out on the scandal due out on Thursday. I am sure my good friend Jim Mellon will be ordering an advance copy. Elsewhere I look at Vislink (VLK), at the train wreck waiting to happen at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), at Fitbug (FITB) and Cloudtag (CTAG) and then finally at SalvarX (SALV) - placing ahoy on this related party express train to planet hype.

Then I look at woeful lies from fake newscasters at ITN but in a macro-economic session inspired by Next (NXT), Bovis (BVS) and Cambria Auto (CAMB) I look at now clear macro headwinds which are hitting the UK partly as a result of very bad calls by the twit Carney and the poltroon Osborne and his pea brained successor as Chancellor, Phil Hammond. How can you assemble a short portfolio on the back of that? I answer reader Tony, but also suggest another short portfolio.

African Potash Accounts finally out - damning statements by RSM Tenon auditor

I am yet to get an explanation from Peterhouse Corporate Finance, the advisor to ISDX and (pro tem) AIM listed fraud African Potash (AFPO) as to why accounts for the year to June 30 were signed off on 28 December but not released until 3 hours and 48 minutes after the stockmarket closed for a three day New Year break on 30 December. This is surely a breach of ISDX rules and it shows, again, that the fraudsters are prize rotters. Why is Peterhouse not resigning NOW? But it gets worse, the actual, annual report was promised by 31 December but has only this morning appeared on the company's ramptastic website. Why the delay? How about not wishing to admit to damning comments from auditors RSM Tenon which show that this company is toast? The auditor does not mince its words.

It is an open secret in the City that Cairn Financial will, at some stage, cease to act as Nomad for Cloudtag (CTAG). And given that the AIM listed company has lied to investors on a serial basis and also committed securities fraud no other Nomad will take this account on. As such, when Cairn quits, the shares will be suspended and a month later booted off AIM. That will preclude any more fund raisings and so will mean shareholders lose everything as the company goes bust. This situation is unfair on investors and so I have written to Cairn. That is because I am just a nice guy.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Why hasn't Deborah White been fired for breaking AIM Rules?

I have loaded the photos of pressing the olives from the Greek Hovel HERE. There may not be a bearcast tomorrow as I am about to start travelling soon. Today I look at LGO Energy (LGO), Milestone Group (MSG) and its CEO Deborah White who has committed market abuse and should be fired, Strat Aero (AERO), Fox Marble (FOX), Golden Saint (GSR) where I suggest a rule change is needed at AIM to deal with share dumping parasites like PR genius Steffi, and Proxama (PROX).

Cloudtag EGM passes resolutions but shares still suspended & that is BAD News

The EGM of AIM fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) was delayed because the plane carrying CEO Amit Ben Haim was held up by fog on its approach to the Channel Islands. Once the great man arrived all resolutions allowing the issue of vast numbers of shares to death spiral providers, and anyone else who will stump up cash, were duly passed. No shock there, most morons can't afford an air fare so voted by proxy pre suspension at a time when the shares were flying so, natch, they backed management. But....

Lucian Miers writes to AIM Regulation re forward selling by L1 and Cloudtag market abuse

Bear raider Lucian Miers has again challenged the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to take swift and firm action against Cloudtag (CTAG) for market abuse but has also raised the issue of forward selling by death spiral provider L1 Capital. This is effectively running a naked short and should thus be illegal. Miers writes:

Cloudtag: Are frauds allowed to break AIM Rule 26?

In the greater scheme of the litany of financial crimes committed by Cloudtag (CTAG) you may well regard this as small beer. Sure. But it is a clear breach of AIM Rules and yet another thing for hapless Nomad Cairn to address if it has not decided that it has had enough of putting its (increasingly less good) name to outright lies, and resigned. So what is AIM Rule 26 and why has Cloudtag broken it?

Tom Winnifrith bonus bearcast - more lies from Cloudtag, shares to restart trading Friday: SELL

Cloudtag (CTAG) has released an after hours RNS. It beggars belief that Nomad Cairn has signed off on this shite, More lies to compound earlier lies but also an admission of more breaches of AIM Rules and that 2016 sales will be zero, contrary to earlier lies. It is all utter horseshite and in this special podcast I take apart this statement bit by bit. It is a bad day for AIM. Cairn you should be ashamed and is beneath contempt. Cloudtag has lied and committed fraud and its shares are a sell with a 0p target.

BMR Group at 6.125p worth 27p after Kabwe news says WH Ireland

Ok, WH Ireland employs a good selection of total tossers and it is Nomad and Broker to BMR Group (BMR) so its research is not impartial. But the news from Kabwe yesterday was good and, as you know, I am a fully paid up member of the Alex Borrelli fan club. Borrelli has saved BMR after the former chairman stole all its cash and is one of AIM's honest chaps.

FRAUD African Potash shares up 30% (and it was 90%) - a dead cat bounce as it debuts on ISDX

Shares in the fraud African Potash (AFPO) made their debut on the ISDX lobster pot today and for some reason have surged on AIM. This is a dead cat bounce. Tomorrow they will be suspended on AIM and a month later booted off the Casino because no Nomad will act for this company - Cantors having given notice on September 7. The reason that no Nomad will act - despite promises from lyin' Chris Cleverley in a recent RNS that he was confident one would - is that Potash issues lies via RNS to get placings away. Thus it is a fraud.

More damning statistics on AIM, provided by the world's "most successful growth market". Not!

As a boy I would eagerly await the start of each month. Before I went to bed I said hares brown hares and my first words on waking would be rabbits white rabbits. That was meant to bring you luck. These days the start of the month ritual ( well six days in) involves chortling at the latest dire statistics AIM provides about itself. November was as bad as prior months.

Explosive email leak - Advanced Oncotherapy and Sinophi: the real timeline emerges

AIM promote Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and Sinophi have already publicly disagreed as to whether the $120 million order by the Chinese has been "terminated" or not and and on when it was "terminated". Advanced announced the bad news on November 24 suggesting no termination, Sinophi used the T word and said it told Advanced in "early November". A source out East has ensured that I have now obtained access to confidential emails from Sinophi to Advanced which show that Advanced was aware of problems far earlier and at a time when it was soliciting funds from investors. It did not tell those investors. Heads must roll.

In focus: Avanti Communications (AVN), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Telit (TCM), Boohoo (BOO), Tungsten (TUNG), Fastjet (FJET), Cloudtag (CTAG), African Potash (AFPO) and I have a few words about Worthington (WRN)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Speaking at length about AIM fraud to a bird from Bloomberg

She was horrified. I am not sure she agreed with my line that the mainstream press were part of the problem not the solution but she agreed that AIM had its issues. On the bearcast today I look at Red Leopard (RLH), Formation Group (FRM), Mobile Streams (MOS) and its charming CEO - Andalas (ADL) - whose CEO is a tosser - Strat Aero (AERO), Finnaust (FAM), Inspirit (INSP), Plus 500 (PLUS), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO)), TrakM8 (TRAK) and Cloudtag (CTAG) plus one way of looking at it which sees 300 companies on AIM as a sort of fraud.

Our Readers said: Even Roland "Fatty" Cornish not bent enough to act for FRAUD African Potash - its screwed

On Monday Cantor Fitzgerald announced that as of December 7 it would no longer act as Nomad for the AIM fraud African Potash. So Potash needs a new Nomad to sign off on its lies to enable it to commit securities fraud. But who will act for it? We polled you yesterday and while many of you thought that cometh the day there was only on go to Nomad for a fraud, more of you thought that no-one, not even Roland "Fatty" Cornish, was that desperate. But that potential tax issue may prompt an urgent need for cash and that may yet sway Fatty! The results of who you thought would act for the fraud Potash are:

CloudTag – just how secure is that death spiral funding package?

Then it can meet the $5.2 million guaranteed order during 2016 from Second Chance which has morphed into what looks more like an £880,000 expression of interest which might lead to sales some time this year or next, if ever. Until then we can rely upon the death spiral funding package announced on 7 November to keep the company from taking a one-way trip to the corporate knackers’ yard. Or can we?

It shows that a buy note from a house broker, especially one as shoddy as Cannacord, is just worthless. You will remember how Canaccord fired heroic Kevin Ashton, the world's number 1 tech analyst, when he refused to write a buy note on the Quindell fraud.

Remember when the fraudster Rob Terry told his deluded followers that shares in Daniel Stewart (DAN) were worth 10p each. In those days they were listed on AIM but Terry reckoned that they could be worth even more when delisted. Hmmmm. Now slung off AIM things seem to be going from bad to worse.

Write to Marcus Stuttard at AIM Regulation NOW to Demand Roland Fatty Cornish is struck off

Today is a very dark day indeed for AIM as the scale of the white collar crime at New World Oil & Gas under its former management team has become clear. That former directors should be investigated by the SFO and others is clear. But AIM Regulation must act quickly to cut one cancer out of the system, it must stop Roland "Fatty" Cornish individually and his firm Beaumont Cornish from ever acting as a Nomad again. I urge you to email the boss of AIM Regulation Marcus Stuttard demanding this happen and suggest what to write below. You can email Marcus at

Shamed Globo Entrepreneur Gavin Burnell drives coach & horses through AIM rules again - Onzima suspended

Oh dear, Oh Dear, Gavin Burnell is in another spot of bother. Gavin, who is now working as a senior broker at bucket shop Beaufort Securities, brought the fraud Globo (GBO) to the market and made vast sums as a well paid NED and via share sales while the CEO stole all the cash. After that no firm with any credibility or self respect would hire him but clearly he fits in really well round at Belfort. But now there is another trainwreck on his watch - Onzima Ventures (ONZ) shares in which have been suspended today.

Gable - when was it toast and why were investors not told? Heads must roll Mr Stuttard

Slung off AIM yesterday, Gable's (GAH) main subsidiary is now in administration and the PLC will surely follow, as I explained HERE. No doubt Marcus Stuttard and the oxymoronic clowns round at AIM Regulation will no doubt just dismiss this as "one of those things" that happen now and again on "the world's most successful growth market".

Vast Resources - The Interest Free loan which will actually cost a minimum of 27.5%

Shitty little AIM Companies such as Vast Resources (VAST) would be better off borrowing on the company credit card than dealing with loan sharks such as Bracknor and Northland Capital. To add insult to injury Vast describes as $2 million loan today as interest free. Bollocks. It is even more expensive as the infamous loan from fragrant Katrina Clayton the wife of the FD at FRAUD African Potash (AFPO).

That brings in £34,851 which is frankly neither here not there. Around 10% of that cash came from the exercise of warrants by FIML and my pension fund. Neither are selling at anything like this price although the shares are well up on a 14p offer share tip.

There are many smaller companies on AIM that are heading for zero as they are either almost out of (other folks) cash - Avanti Communications (AVN), IGAS (IGAS) or are plain frauds like African Potash (AFPO) nor Cloudtag (CTAG). But if you are a looking for a big company with plenty of borrow that is ripe for a share price collapse look to Israeli tech stock Telit (TCM). At 278p the market cap is a monstrous £321 million, call it $400 million. That is a rum n coke.

It was an interesting experience listening to the Radio Four show “File on Four” yesterday evening at 8pm.

And with reference to the China Frauds, it is here that you read it first. So why is it that the Beeb didn’t bother to get in touch with us directly?

BREAKING: African Potash - First adviser walks - will anyone else show they put morality over money?

I sensed that those close to the fraud African Potash (AFPO) were getting skittish and now I can reveal that the first adviser has indeed handed in its notice. And I am not surporised as to who it is that has shown that it puts morality ahead of money.

The adviser quitting is St Brides PR. St Brides, you may remember, acted for the sister company to Potash, Sable Mining (SBLM) which last week said it was quitting the AIM Casino amid its own problems with a major bribery scandal. St Brides quit that account a good while back, whereas Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald hung on to the bitter end.

Congratulations to St Brides which shows that not all folks in PR are total rotters only interested in money. I hope that good companies on AIM who are looking for PR opt to go with St Brides on the basis that there should be a moral dimension to business and this agency - unlike others I could mention - is clearly on the side of the angels.I kinow a lot of AIM CEOs read this website, come on chaps, do the decent thing and hire St Brides first thing on Monday. 

St Brides has put morality and principle ahead of cash considerations and thus shown itself in the best possible light. The question now is

Did anyone backing the funding back in June of this year know the company was already bust? Companies house shows that is the case HERE.

I will miss him, not least as a bulwark against the raging political correctness of my family. Then I turn to Cloudtag (CTAG) and African Potash (AFPO) two companies now exposed as having lied to investors in a material way just days before placings. What does this say about investing in frauds? What does it mean for the shares and what does it mean for AIM? as the Potash story now starts to head towards the Nationals (oh yes St Brides PR brace yourselves, you can smear me but will you continue in that vein?) what happens next in both cases? Maurice would have enjoyed these battles in so many ways.

Still no lawyers letter from Memery Crystal acting for fraudsters African Potash so here's the one they sent us on behalf of fraudsters Globo - it is a scream

As you are aware African Potash (AFPO) has told the morons that it is consulting its lawyers about taking action against me for daring to point out that the the company were liars who had committed Securities fraud. Potash's lawyers are Memery Crystal whose senior partner was aware of at least one Potash fraud as he was cc'd in on the emails ahead of the RNS. That, as I explained HERE, is why Nick Davis should quit the AIM Advisory board now. So far Memery Crystal, has not sent me a letter on behalf of the Potash fraudsters but it did sent me one one behalf of the fraudsters at Globo.

Buy Concepta at 12p and at up to 17.5p - target to sell 28p

Investment Case: The AIM admission of Concepta (CPT) a couple of weeks ago was through a reverse takeover of shellmeister (Adam Reynolds)-saved Frontier Resources International (FRI). We backed Reynolds when he became involved in Frontier, but despite his track-record, then was clearly somewhat speculative as we awaited a deal to be delivered. Now it has and it looks like Reynolds has delivered another promising one…

Beaufort Securities lending cash to Strat Aero boss for bogus share purchase to ramp shares pre placing - Market abuse and Fraud

The more one reads of the explosive legal dossier packed with damning emails, filed by Hulsey Smith in the Texas Courts against Strat Aero (AERO), the more one sees the massive implications for the whole of AIM. In yesterday's bearcast I discussed the massive conflict of interests at Strat's broker Beaufort Securities. Now let's take that further...if you are a Beaufort client this should concern you.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast Declaration of War with Strat Aero - specific instances of fraud & crime

Ok this is my declaration of war because the fraud and crimes at Strat Aero (AERO) concern not just this one POS AIM Casino company but also touch many other players in the game. You can read the explosive 338 page legal document we published on Friday HERE. I am amazed that some of those named in it, Zak Mir for instance, have still not read it. They should. But mark my words, what went on at Strat goes on across the AIM board every single working day. If this really blows up there are an awful lot of folks who will be sweating.

The Scoundrels at FRAUD Strat Aero offer patronising and weedy response to ShareProphets expose: I declare war part 1

Yesterday I exposed the scoundrels at AIM dog Strat Aero with the publication of a 338 page Texas legal disposition containing emails and other evidence that is damning. Not only does this show that Strat is up to no good and thus faces a very real chance of losing the $20 million claim against it and its officers, but it also casts a light on the sordid goings on on the AIM Cesspit. The Strat response is so offensively bad that it merits a declaration of war from the Sheriff of AIM on this piece of Turkish. Strat, as a PLC, you are a dead man walking...you are toast.

It will never make money for shareholders. Hence today we see a laughable bailout placing. Death is merely postponed.

Starcom - le AIM ramp de jour but valuation crackers

Those lucky folks who got in on the most recent bailout placing for AIM dog Starcom (STAR ) in March at 1.5p have done brilliantly.

But the valuation is surely insane at £5.4 million given the ongoing losses, painful lack of tangible asset backing and the inevitability that another placing is imminent.

The roll call name of shame includes pompous PR supremo Piers Pottinger who is a NED, Nomad SP Angel, brokers Mirabaud and Belfort Securities. The shares have plunged to 4p (60% down on the IPO) but are in fact worth 0p. This is a ZERO, an AIM uber-dog.

London Stock Exchange AGM Wednesday - 89% of you think LSE will stop Tom Winnifrith from asking questions

I shall endeavour, as the owner of two shares, to gain admittance to the AGM of the London Stock Exchange tomorrow morning. Im coming up from Bristol so may be a few minutes late but I trust that Lucian will be there for the 10 AM kick off at the Banksters Hall but it seems that only 11% of you reckon that the crony capitalists will take my questions on AIM fraud. We asked how the LSE would treat me - having barred my last year as its press office lied: You said:

Ouzo O'Clock already: Dragon's Den flop Piers Linney admits Outsourcery is almost toast!

Well you cannot say that you were not warned! I have exposed time and time again on this website how the business career of one series Dragons Den flop Piers Linney has been marked by serial failure. The loathsome self-publicist Linney said floating Outsourcery on AIM at 110p in May 2013 was the highlight of his career. Today Linney has admitted that his company is almost toast. What fucking brilliant news.

Fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell infamy slams AIM as not being well regulated - insists he must be quite honest

Rob Terry's interview with the Sunday Telegraph today really is a laugh a minute. Having noted how he things S&G got a bargain buying Quenron assets - a deal that has pushed it to the brink of insolvency, Terry then moves onto the AIM market. Rob is concerned about its standards of regulation. Fuck me this is ridiculous.

Wondering where the cash Costis stole from Globo went? Gavin Burnell might know a thing or two

In case the rozzers want to know where Costis, Konstantinos Papadimitrakopoulos, hid the cash he liberated from the fraud Globo (GBO) both directly and via share sales in the days running up to its collapse, perhaps they should ask disgraced Globo NED and the man who listed it on AIM Gavin Burnell. For it seems that Gavin had dealings with the criminal bubble outside of Globo.

UK Oil & Gas and Horse Hill - the most ludicrous pre-placing ramp in the history of AIM exposed

There are two statements from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) today. One is a hard financial transaction which demonstrates clearly that UK Oil & Gas shares are horrendously overvalued and the other is the most ludicrous attaempt at share ramping in the history of AIM. Defenders of Steve Sanderson, UKOG's CEO, say that he is trying to distance himself from the Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. Frankly even Dave would have struggled to sign off on today's ramping. It is cringe-making and it is noticeable that although it relates to a Horse Hill study, no other Horse Shite company has dared publish these ridiculous claims.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The bank robber is spot on re Andalas ramp and Project Fear Brexit lies on fuel prices

Dave Whitby of Anadalas (ADL), what was once uber ramp CEB, should be in prison for his crimes against AIM. I have linked at the side of ShareProphets to an article by someone who was in prison once, Brokerman Dan, on Andalas and the old bank robber is bang on the money. In five days this company could be booted off AIM. It wont, I think, but will survive only by doing things that stink to high heaven.

David Lenigas ramps up the smears and threats: Tom Winnifrith I shall not be silenced

By email and by twitter last night David Lenigas sank to new depths in an attempt to bully me into not speaking out at UK Investor Show on April 30 explaining why the fat Aussie share ramper has no place on AIM. Mr Lenigas should be truly ashamed as he wakes up this morning to what he posted last night. I doubt he will be.

Rare Earth Minerals: Between a lithium-bearing rock and a hard place despite more Lenigas twitter lies

Filthy Forty – an open letter to George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer on AIM China Fraud

We have today penned an open letter to George Osborne regarding the ever-growing scandal of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty.

Under the circumstances we are deeply concerned about this and call for a full investigation.

Given the statistics of Nomad resignations (fourteen so far since the start of 2015, eight in the past six and a half months) it is crystal clear that there has been a serious problem: Nomads do not resign on a whim – business is hard to come by these days.

Having hinted previously that its AIM days may be numbered, last night at no-one-is-watching o'clock (5.29pm on a Friday) erstwhile AIM-listed Daniel Stewart (DAN) released an "Update on Suspension" RNS which admitted that following the resignation of Beaumont Cornish, the Nomad of last resort, the company had been unable to find a replacement. In other words no other Nomad is prepared to act and we should expect an AIM execution announcement on Friday of next week.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 14 January - Blenheim disgrace, Rosslyn ramps & other AIM shockers

I start with last night's/this morning's twitter tag team trolling of me by David Lenigas and Yusuf Kajee of Afriag (AFRI). I really feel pity for them and next time I go to Church ( December 24th) will pray for them. Then it is on to ADVFN (AFN) and its share price movement, to Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) & African Potash (AFPO) an AIM tale of shame. Then I move into Riosslyn Data (RDT) and the looming placing, blinkx (BLNX) and Restaurant Group (RTN)

Buy FDM Group at a 530p offer

Investment Case: Despite in its current form only listing last year, principally IT personnel provider FDM Group (FDM) is a company we have have previously followed – its shares having previously been on AIM before the group was taken private in 2010. The shares were re-listed, this time on the main market, in June 2014 at 287p and exceeded 575p a couple of months ago before slipping back to a current 530p offer price. This makes its operational growth momentum and (growing) dividend interesting and sees the shares now rated as a buy.

This is an extra bearcast for today. The main one on UK Companies is to follow. This one covers the biggest lie told by shite companies on AIM, told today by Golden Saint Resources (GSR) but it is far from alone, the real crisis in big PLC crony capitalism, ref Macy's and many others, and also why I remain bearish on equities.

Reader Poll - who was the biggest stockmarket villain of 2015?

We have featured a range of total wrong'uns on these pages during 2015 but who do you think was the biggest stockmarket villain of the year?  Rob Terry for the Quindell fraud but also for his Knob Park antics at Imaginatik and Daniel Cesspit or was he the 2014 villain? David Lenigas for the fiasco at Lenigas Cuba and the disgraceful antics of Afriag as well as the Horse Hill fiasco? Peter Landau for finally getting his comeuppance? Criminal and liar Chris Oil who surely gets his collar felt in 2016? Naibu's Houyan Lin? What about Costis from Globo? The AIM Casino short list is in fact a depressingly long list but you can vote from the dirty dozen I have shortlisted below. Deadline midnight 3rd January.

Tired of smearing and attempting to bribe Tom Winnifrith, Afriag's Yusuf Kajee demands questions - ok, part 1

AIM Listed Afriag PLC (AFRI) shares should be suspended on Monday because of the mass of questions I have flagged up on this website HERE. One of the two principal players in the business, Yusuf Kajee, has spent the holidays sending me more than 130 tweets smearing me in the most repugnant manner possible (HERE) and also trying to bribe me (HERE). Now he asks for questions.

Anyhow in this podcast I refect on post stockmarket crashes and how and why they cause  certain white collar crooks to finally face justice. Yes Chris Oil and Rob Terry are mentioned.

Afriag - why this company is not fit to be on AIM: Yusuf Kajee, Paul de Robillard and the criminal activities

AIM Listed Afriag (AFRI) the brainchild of David Lenigas purports to be in investment company. This is a smokescreen. Sure it has small investments in five itty bitty AIM stocks connected to African Agriculture but its main business, which dwarfs everything else, is s 40% stake in Afriag SA which is 60% owned by DRK a British company jointly owned by Paul de Robillard and Yusuf Kajee.

A Reminder of my 12 Questions for ex AIM boss David Lenigas - he never answered

Jabba The Hutt has yet to announce his resignation from the board of Inspirit (INSP) but it must be imminent as he has quit four of his five remaining AIM directorships this morning. I guess in the boiler room they are not at full speed yet. Why the sudden departure from AIM? More on that later but here is a reminder of 12 questions I posed on 28 November for David Lenigas and of why you should have sold shares in EVERY company associated with him. Update: Big Dave quits Inspirit too.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 17 December - Concha another day of shame for AIM

I am sitting here with my father in Shipston. We have just had a long argument about the deaths of Cranmer, Latimer & Ridley. Naturally we both insisted we had the facts right. I am now 1p better off as I was right. My father has gone to the White Bear early in protest. Back to the podcast, I start with US base rates and why the UK will follow and what that means (house price crash, bad for certain equities). Then it is the AIM disgrace of the day Concha (CHA), onto Afriag (AFRI), Inspirit (INSP), Ultimate Sports (USG), Fastjet (FJET), and the shocker of a July IPO Adgorithms (ADGO). It is another day of shame for AIM.

Afriag - David Lenigas caught lying in another RNS and hello again to an old friend from Lonrho

Does anyone at AIM actually care whether David Lenigas tells the truth in any RNS statements any more? It appears that Nomad Cairn and AIM regulation do not give a FF. I shall now demonstrate to you a slam dunk and material untruth in an Afriag (AFRI) RNS.

David Lenigas panics over Afriag revelations and signs its AIM death warrant on twitter

Sometimes when the bad guys come under pressure it all gets too much for them and they panic and make a silly mistake. The Quindell "response to a blogger" statement actually gave proof of certain frauds. It was a blunder made in panic. And that brings us to David Lenigas who was so panicked by yesterday's Afriag (AFRI) bombshells and so effectively signed the AIM death warrant of the company with one single panicked tweet.

SHOCKER: AfriAg plc – Er…about that investment in AfriAg PTY Ltd?

Lots of questions are being asked about AIM-listed AfriAg plc (AFRI) at the moment, notably HERE. A few more arise out of the company’s Annual Report for 2013 which lead back to the acquisition of 40% of the South African entity called AfriAg (Pty) Limited. We’ll call that AfriAg SA. It seems to open something of a can of worms, as shall become clear in what follows.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 13 December - From a pain in the back to David Lenigas

I start with back news, not good but at least I have a handy tip for dodging passport control. Then it is onto the son of the late Brian Schneider of OEM infamy. He wants you and I to pay far more tax from our legitimate earnings though he has lived a privileged life - and still does - thanks to the proceeds of crime. He is a leading Jeremy Corbyn organiser. Right on Comrades. I look at Petropavlovsk (POG) and the idea of buying shares for the bid.  I move onto a new biotech IPO, Levrett. I explain why its a bargepole but also how the coverage of this in the Mail on Sunday (Simon Watkins) shows again the corrupt nexus between certain financial journalists and the PR world with an aim to dupe you, the investor. Then it is onto Jabba The Hutt's Afriag (AFRI) where I follow on from today's bombshell HERE and the follow up HERE by explaining the real problem it - and AIM - now faces.

Tobacco smuggling and a tale of two AfriAgs - the ghost of LonRho with David Lenigas

Fridays focus of ramping for David Lenigas was AIM listed AfriAg (AFRI) But what is this company and who is involved? I sense the ghost of LonRho, what follows makes this an uber-bargepole stock

Note: There are two AfriAgs in this tale – a UK Listed AfriAg (plc) with the ticker AFRI.  Confusingly there is also a private South African company with the same name - AfriAg (Pty) Ltd.  I will refer to the UK company as AfriAg plc and the South African one as AfriAg SA.

Olive Harvest at the Greek Hovel over - it has been dismal but that is not the point

Even without my, pretty pathetic, assistance, George and his team completed the olive harvest today as I sat in the hospital. Last year it took us 5-6 days, this year it was just three. The sacks now lie at the village press whose boss greeted me like an old friend, forgetting that my Greek is somewhat weak but gabbling away happily. Tomorrow afternoon we press.

I shall take 16 litres in a can back to England for Christmas presents (Foxy Bex I have not forgotten) and personal use for the next 12 months. The rest I shall sell and that will cover George's wages, a bus fare back to Athens and maybe my flights. That is not really the point. Unless

Octagonal – another David Lenigas AIM car crash – looking at its investments number 2

Anyone who was mad enough to back the Octagonal (OCT) placing at 2p this June is already 57.5% down.

I first touched on Octagonal as a car crash underway HERE and yesterday discussed its first rum and coke balance sheet entry HERE. But it gets worse (for Dave) and better for me.

The shares are now 0.85p to sell, so in five months they have only lost 57.5%. Compared to other Lenigas car crashes that is not too bad.  Now let’s start a series looking at what they actually bought.

Aha Octagonal (OCT), an AIM listed company where the aforementioned Mr David Lenigas is involved - needless to say its shares have slumped.

Can Malcolm Stacey reallysay the are ethical investments? I commend you all to watch it. Remember I grew up in a hippie self-sufficent family so maybe I am biased but I was horrified.
