Ouzo for Tom Winnifrith: Aquis Regulator acts on his specific complaint, fines Block Commodities run by Lyin' Chris Cleverly

Oh dear, Lyin’ Chris Cleverley, the cousin of Tory party bigwig James ,is in a spot of bother having been slammed by the regulators of the junior exchange Aquis for misleading investors in his POS company Block Commodities, formerly African Potash. Better still Aquis acted on a specific letter from my good self sent on 18 November 2019.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: it really is time for start firing useless Nomads & Corporate advisors

I start with a few words on Brexit Day and how we celebrated it HERE in Wales. Then with case studies Toople (TOOP) and Haydale (HAYD) I look at clear Nomad and adviser failings harking back to those at African Potash (AFPO) and suggesting why it is vital that, now, heads start to roll. I also discuss Future (FUTR) and Optibiotix (OPTI) and suggest that you all follow the great example of No Gold HERE

Lyin’ Chris Cleverley AGAIN shows that on the joke NEX Lobster Pot, lying and NOT sticking to the rules just does not matter

On 18 November 2019 I wrote to the clowns and buffoons who describe themselves as the NEX Markets Regulation department, no sniggering at the back please, with slam dunk evidence of three monstrous lies told by Lyin’ Chris Cleverley’s Block Commodities (BLCC), formerly African Potash (AFPO) until it was slung off AIM after I proved it was engaged in wholesale fraud.  The twits at NEX acknowledged my letter and have clearly done nothing about it as Lyin’ Chris has issued a new release showing how he has broken all the rules. Again!

EXPOSE: Lyin Chris Cleverley, the fraudster cousin of Tory party chairman James, caught Lying (monstrously) again – why is he being protected?

In the years 2015-17 I demonstrated numerous times with articles such as African Potash (AFPO), No No No you are lying bastards and African Potash – now let’s look at the lies in the RNS 6 days before the bailout placing in January, that then AIM listed African Potash run by Lyin’ Chris and Labour peer Lord Hain of sleaze had told industrial scale lies to ramp their shares and get away placings.  This was fraud plain and simple….

In this bearcast I look at what a dismal failure AIM has become and examine the inherent conflicts of interest which make such failure ( for investors) inevitable.

Bad news for AIM - Class Action against Cantor Fitzgerald re African Potash fraud fails to get off the ground

African Potash (AFPO) released 2 RNS statements about claimed deals in Southern Africa,. The shares raced ahead. Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald and its QE Mr Stuart Dick signed off on those RNS statements but cannot have bothered to check the original documentation about those deals. Because I got hold of that documentation & published it and that showed the RNS's were misleading. But they caused a share spike allowing a bailout placing to go ahead.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My biggest investment mistakes (and there have been a few) and the BMR Mega scandal for WH Ireland and AIM

I start this podcast by reflecting on my biggest investment mistakes of which selling some Optibiotix (OPTI) three years ago must be in the top ten. Stagging Argo Blockchain (ARB) hjas so far been a small mistake but I reflect on that too. Then I reflect on the bombshell by Nigel Somerville on BMR Group (BMR) which shows AIM Regulation not fit for purpose and opens up a mega scandal for WH Ireland (WHI). What happens next i ask, referring to good news on the claims against Cantor Fitzgerald re African Potash (AFPO)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - it has been six bloody hard years

In today's bearcast I celebrate six years of being a full time investigative writer not a crony capitalist. I take issue with Roger Lawson on the deadwood press and how the view me but agree partially with him on Inheritance Tax. I explain why there is a flood of Julie Meyer material and why it is justified. I look at Alfa Financial (ALFA) and its 1 year anniversary profits warning. I update on the African Potash (AFPO) class action against its Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald and how things are moving and why this could be my crowning achievement. Finally.. we are almost at £5,000. We are seeking to raise £20,000 for Woodlarks. that will be a game changer for a great charity. 95% of listeners have not donated. To those who have I say thank you. To the rest, I know you can afford a tenner. Please cough up now HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: AIM Companies starting to surf the wave of Blockchain madness - I've seen this all before

In this bonus podcast prompted by recent events at African Potash (AFPO) and ADVFN (AFN) I look back on other bouts of market insanity. There was the radio boom of the 1920s and the dot com boom of 1999-2001 but is the blockchain bubble at 1999, 2000 or 2001? Among the companies also mentioned are On Line (ONL), Vela (VELA), Milestone Group (MSG)  and Coinsilium (COIN), where we have a small holding. Madness, my friends, is in the air.

Andalas - what it did not flag up in yesterday's results: its 3 months from tits up time!

Yesterday I pointed out that Andalas Energy (ADL) was almost insolvent and that house broker Beaufort was in denial. But now let us turn to something which Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald somehow thought it apppropriate to omit. Sarah Wharry at Caantor you should be ashamed and if/when Andalas goes tits up you may well get sued just as your firm is over its negligence at the African Potash (AFPO) fraud.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - do not get fooled by Watchstone's cash claims & shoot the scumbag "rebels" at Stratex

Those seeking to oust the board at Stratex (STI) have not been playing with a straight bat as an RNS late yesterday made clear. They are vermin who should be sent packing. Ditto Professor Conroy of Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR). I have news on his latest courtroom scrape in Dublin and also on the Afren (AFR) whistleblower to whom I make a generous offer. I am warming to Blur (BLUR) after today's placing and am almost tempted to nibble now that ghastly Phil Letts and his even more ghastly Mrs have gone. There is a detailed analysis of interims from Watchstone (WTG) - Quindell as was. Do not get suckered by that headline cash number. It is not real and the shares are a sell. Finally there is an update on the African Potash (AFPO) and Paragon Diamonds (PRG) litigation.

But that is nothing to the stunning admission today from Andalas Energy (ADL) - a loan repayable in one month at an annualised rate of 150%. Even by the standards of AIM Casino junk - Wowee.

BREAKING: African Potash FRAUD - Nomad Cantors will be sued by 3 investors - case gets green light (Cloudtag next!)

This has massive implications for the AIM Casino. We saw last week that the London Stock Exchange was washing its hands of tackling Nomads who sign off on frauds and so allow investors to lose all their cash to shysters. Now the private sector moves in. I can reveal today that Cantor Fitzgerald will be sued by investors who lost money on the African Potash (AFPO) fraud because it was negligent in signing off on fraudulent releases. If this case wins the floodgates are open...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - The PLC Death List Update - 9 new entrants

I started the PLC death list in June 2015 with 21 members. The aim is to pick stocks that will either go bust or get slung off the AIM Casino. Each departure requires a nreplacement. With nine new entrants today 40 names have joined this select group. So far there have been two outright failures on my part, Mariana Resources (MARL) and Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG). There was one volte face but I was ahead at volte face point and it was a great call both short and long - Wandisco (WAND), two near kills, InternetQ (INTQ) and Monitise (MONI) and thirteen slam dunk kills: Cloudtag (CTAG), Worthington (WRN), African Potash (AFPO), Jiasen (JSI), Camkids (CAMK), China Chaintek (CTAK), JQW (JQW), Afren (AFR), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Sefton (SER), Outsourcey (OUT - boy I enjoyed that one - Afriag (AFRI) and Auhua. So 13 out of 31 = 40%+ - not bad eh?  Arguably that is 15 out of 31 - almost 50%! That leaves:

African Potash - will the fraud be thrown off NEX on Monday or will the establishment bend the rules for Lord Hain of Sleaze?

To be thrown off one market because your adviser tired of signing off on lies is understandable, if you are a fucktard in AIM Regulation who does not care about fraud. But, to paraphrase my fellow Anglo Irishman Mr Wilde, to be thrown off two markets for that reason looks like carelessness. And that brings us to the fraud African Potash (AFPO).

Cantor Fitzgerald, are you sweating yet over the African Potash fraud on your watch... tick tock

Of course Cantor Fitzgerald is so large that it could afford to compensate all of the 70 or more investors working with Peter Petyt and this website to try to recover losses from the African Potash (AFPO) fraud. But the publicity of a case would be hugely embarrassing so sordid would be the revelations. Anyhow just 10 days more sweating for Cantor...there is an update from Petyt.

African Potash - like Dracula, seemingly unkillable but in the end...

You would have thought that having not one but two advisers resign because they would not sign off on its lies, being out of cash, having its shares suspended on NEX after being slung off AIM would be enough to kill African Potash (AFPO). But it appears that the holy water, the garlic, the silver crucifix, the stake through the heart and all the other tools in Van Helsing's bag are not enough. But remember, in the end the Count will die.

African Potash shares suspended, sheer comedy from Lyin Chris Cleverley and his cowardly advisers at Peterhouse

This really should have been an ouzo o'clock moment as lying Chris Cleverley, Lord Hain of sleaze and the gang round at the African Potash (AFPO) fraud saw their shares suspended on the NEX lobster pot. But I was a good diabetic and had a Greek salad, medication and water instead. But I am off sick leave this morning because dissecting such unmitigated horseshit brings joy to my heart and is good for the blood pressure and the soul. This is comedy central from lyin' Chris who is still to follow through on his promise to sue me for libel. I can't think why. The Potash statement is in bold, the lie detection service is not. Brace yourself, this is funny.

This smells all wrong. Shares in African Potash trade (AFPO) trade at 0.02-0.04p on the NEX lobster pot after being booted off AIM. Since January 9 there have been just 23 trades of which only 2 have been at more than 0.045p. In February there have been seven trades and the most recent to sell have been at just 0.021p.

The shares are now only listed in the joke lobster pot that is NEX Markets, it is almost impossible to sell in any size and even harder to raise cash as a company.

On the ISDX lobster pot (now known as the NEX lobster pot) it can't get a placing away - for reasons explained in this podcast - so it will be tits up within weeks. That has implications for Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Jamie Oliver is blaming Brexit as he shuts six of his over-priced branded eateries. But he is just another celeb tosser don't you think?

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.

Have you lost money on African Potash? Did you buy into the fraud on or after 6 January 2016? Contact me now

African Potash stated in its annual report that on the ISDX (now called NEX) lobster pot it might be more difficult to raise money than on the AIM casino. I should cocoa. The last trade was on December 29. Liquidity is just nil and the 0.05p offer prize only applies if you want to sell peanuts amounts. If you invested in this fraud just accept that your shares are now worthless as it cannot get awaqy the £600,000 placing it dsays that it needs to survive. So Potash is going to go bust soon.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why we must read accounts from the back forwards and Sirius vs Cloudtag

I admit that i am too lazy when it comes to reading report and accounts. I should be more of a geek like Steve Moore. In today's podcast I explain why my sloth is a sin and why we should all read from the back to the front. I also look at investment versus trading, Sirius (SXX) vs Cloudtag (CTAG). Other companies mentioned include African Potash (AFPO), Inspirit (INSP) and Strat Aero (AERO). I am now offline as I tidy up the mess created by Oakley and the different mess created by me before the Mrs and Joshua return home.

African Potash Accounts - A question for Lord Peter Hain of Sleaze

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

African Potash Accounts - how much on travel? And tell us about your expenses lyin' Chris

That African Potash (AFPO) is clearly trading whilst insolvent is beyond doubt. It admits that it needs to raise $600,000 to pay its bills as they fall due but trading volumes on ISDX are often just a few hundred quid a day. It's game over. So where has all the money gone? There is a reason that the board did not want anyone seeing the annual report which finally surfaced today.

African Potash Accounts Note 21 - the £35,000 bung to lyin' Chris Cleverley

No wonder that fraud African Potash (AFPO) did not want anyone reading its accounts which have finally arrived six days after they were signed off. It is a gold mine for anoraks like me. Let us now turn to page 45 and note 21, related party transactions of which there are many. But I refer to the third such transaction which involves CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley.

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.

FRAUD African Potash: why hide the vote as share trading dries up completely?

The fraud African Potash (AFPO) now sees its shares trade on the ISDX lobster pot as it is still yet to find a replacement Nomad to act for it on the AIM Casino following the resignation of Cantor Fitzgerald. Not even Cairn Financial - which pro tem acts for the serial liars at Cloudtag (CTAG) - will act for lyin' Chris Cleverley. So on January 7 the relegation to ISDX will become permanent. The pledges of CEO Cleverley that he was optimistic of finding a new Nomad will be shown to be...er... lies. Quelle surprise. But it gets worse and will get even more worse on Christmas Eve.

What do Ex Nomad to the African Potash FRAUD, Stewart Dickson, charlatan Darren Winters & an associate of fraudster Rob Terry have in common?

When Google receives a notice asking it to remove a link to a website, if it doesn't feel like litigating it, it0 removes the link and sends a copy of the notice to LumenDatabase.org. Often, it is used by copyright holders to prevent people from downloading pirate copies of books, films, or music, as in this case where the publisher of Tom Winnifrith Sr's must read book, Fallen Women of the 19th Century, asked for links to be removed.

After day six of the olive harvest I am shattered but it looks as if tomorrow may be the final day which means a late night at the press in Kambos, ouzo and no bearcast. You have been warned, the Sheriff may have the whole day off so tomorrow is a good day for shysters on the AIM casino to issue dodgy press releases. I take two reader requests. One is on Sirius Petroleum (SRSP) the other on my specialist subject - what is ISDX. In terms of companies I cover Cloudtag (CTAG), African Potash (FRAUD), RedT Energy (RED), Bilby (BILB). In the ISDX piece I mention Chapel Down and Mechan, we own shares in the latter.

African Potash arrives on the lobster pot - now remember to sack lyin' Chris Cleverley at the AGM

Surprise, surprise. After three months of looking for a Nomad to replace Cantor Fitzgerald who did not want to sign off on any more lies, the FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) has found no-one to take on the gig. It says that it is still in talks but who is so desperate for cash that they would want to act for such a slam dunk fraud? If no-one signs up for reputational hari kiri by January 7 Potash will be slung off the AIM Casino for good. Right now its shares are merely suspended. But what about the ISDX listing?

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.

Frankly Servision would be better off borrowing on Christian T-W's credit card and splitting the difference.

Oh dear, the man who signed off on those ramptastic, but untrue, statements of December 1 2015 and January 6 2016 ahead of the bailout placing on January 12 by African Potash (AFPO) appears to have had a career "incident". Stewart Dickson was head of the team looking after the Potash fraudsters round at Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald, the man ensuring that all RNS's it issued were true. Which, of course, they were not.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - how should I spend that 24p & Graham must be fired for being too nice to FastJet

So the London Stock Exchange (LSE) has just sent me 24p. Fear not, I shall not spend it all at once but on what do listeners think I should splash out? Meanwhile Graham Neary is just too nice to FastJet (FJET) today and unless he can start to act a bit more like a complete and utter bastard I fear that I shall have to fire him as he just won't fit in at ShareProphets. I explain why Fastjet is toast. I look at Charaat Gold (CGH) and also at how sometimes we get carried away by short term events and ignore the bigger picture - I refer in this case to Nighthawk (HAWK). I also ask why after 18 days African Potash (AFPO) has not sued me for libel for pointing out that it is a fraud? Go on you mothers I want to see you bitchez in Court.  The gym I refer to is HERE.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Crashing with China, Krispy Kreme and the trainwreck CV of Lyin' Chris

In today's podcast, recorded before my father in law hogs the TV room to watch Songs of Praise, I look at what the Krispy Kreme IPO in Londron means, at signs of the mother of all crashes in China and what the CV of destruction from lyin' Chris of African Potash (AFPO) exposed HERE earlier - means. Am I a hypocrite on this matter. Er...no.

EXPOSE: Chris Cleverley of FRAUD African Potash - how good is your CV really?

Management is critical to any company. So how good is lyin' Chris Cleverley of the fraud African Potash (AFPO) and, until last week, Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Supporters say that he is a whizz kid. So let's look at all those companies where he also sites on the board. As at December 2015 he numbered five other current posts and 18 others within the prior five years. a busy chap. But what value did Chris create? This will utterly horrify you.

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

He leaves with immediate effect citing a desire to "concentrate on other activities" and we are told the decision is mutual. What horseshit.

Memery Crystal lawyers to FRAUD African Potash - the first time it tried to extract money with menaces from me - for Pirate Pete Landau

As you know the fascist bully boy lawyers at Memery Crystal have demanded money with menaces from me for exposing the fraud committed by its client African Potash (AFPO). Its letter is here and when I kick these bastards into touch it will be a Tom Winnifrith hat-trick against Memery. It also demanded I hand over money when I had a go at its client the fraudsters Globo, 20 months before anyone else had a pop. That fascist letter is HERE. And now I publish the first letter I received from Memery, demanding money for its client Pirate Pete Landau and Range Resources (RRL), now disgraced and facing a spot of bother with the rozzers in Australia. It said that I really must not publish that letter....

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Loads of Pornography and Welshmen shagging sheep + Sepura and 1 down 1 to go with Phil Edmonds

Pornography, naked women, sheep shagging Taffs. Actually there is nothing of the sort in this bearcast but I mention it just to annoy Kay Larsen,a prudish and stupid PR spinner for Sepura (SEPU). Kay is a really silly cow and we have crossed swords before so I rub her nose in it with her client whose statement today is a scandal. The rozzers really need to have a butchers. Then I cover Modern Water (MWG), Falcon Oil & Gas (FOG) and a trio of uber dogs with uber fleas: Blur (BLUR), Inspirit (INSP) and related party Octagonal (OCT). Then I look at Phil Edmonds creation Sable (SBLM) which is now a month away from AIM casino death. Its sister company is the fraud African Potash (AFPO) and I cover this matter in detail. It looks as if the Mrs will give birth tomorrow so if I take a break and you miss me either listen to the archive HERE or google "tourettes audio" and find something similar. Warning: this podcast contains some very bad language especially for the prude Kay Larsen.

A letter to RSM the hapless Auditors to fraud African Potash

My good friend, the king of the fraudsters Sam Antar, was on cracking form this week reminding us all of how he used to hoodwink auditors KPMG over many years when masterminding the Crazy Eddie's fraud. You can see the genius Sam explaining all HERE. I am keen that the fine firm of RSM UK Audit LLP, does not find itself made to look like KPMG style fools, and have thus penned it an open letter today on the subject of both impending bankruptcy and also fraud at its client African Potash. I am such a nice guy trying to help out these simple City folk don't you think? The open letter follows:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Pronto, Crowdfunding scandal, the SFO & Quindell

I look at the SFO decision on Tesco (TSCO) and examine what exactly it means for the fraudsters such as Rob Terry & Jon Stretton Knowles of Quindell who are now under investigation. And where does it leave smaller AIM listed frauds such as African Potash (AFPO), Cloudtag (CTAG) and Eden Research (EDEN). Then I look at the demise of crowdfunded new media darling of fuckwit millennials - Pronto. This is a massive scandal if anyone cared to look. 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. Does crowdfunder Seedrs feel no responsibility to flag up such matters?  There are also read acrosses to listed tech plays such as Clouldtag to consider.

African Potash, libel and disclosure - let's start with payments made to Beryl

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

In a while I must go asremble a cot. It won't be like a cot of old but is bound to have 85 parts, six types of screw, an Allan Key and instructions designed for a Nobel Prize winner. It is like a heroic task from Greek mythology and I expect to be in a bad mood soon. So for that reason and one other I record early. On the agenda: Cloudtag (CTAG), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Pantheon Resources (PANR), 88 Energy (88E), Vipera (VIP), XCite Energy (XEL) and Strat Aero (AERO) and only en passant the fraudsters at African Potash (AFPO). This podcast is long and detailed.

It is, quite frankly, a shocking admission of guilt on the charge that Potash committed Securities fraud. Yet these shysters are demanding damages and costs from me! My aim is to get Potash booted off AIM and to see all those involved taught an almighty lesson. I will fight the bastards, and their crony capitalist advisers, all the way!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: RIP Maurice Byrne, this is dedicated to you my friend

I start with a dedication to Maurice Byrne, a friend of my family for more than 40 years, a true eccentric and a bearcast listener who sadly passed away on Thursday. 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.

Cloudtag: revenue warning and an admission it lied 4 days before a placing: that is FRAUD

Marcus Stuttard of AIM Regulation: African Potash admits to fraud - will you please act?

I have today published the lawyers letter sent by Memery Crystal - lawyers to Globo - but which also acts for the fraudsters African Potash (AFPO) demanding money from me, trying to gag me but also admitting that its client has committed securities fraud. The letter also implies that Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald approved releases (and lack of releases) which meant investors in a placing on 12 January 2016 were utterly deceived as to the trading position at Potash. And that is a clear cut case of fraud. But will Marcus Stuttard, the head of AIM Regulation do anything about it or is fraud now acceptable on AIM? I have written to the man who basks in the title "The Sheriff of AIM" as you can see below.

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. It really is fascistic, pompous and shows that Memery Crystal will act for the scum of the earth as long as it gets paid.

Moving on I look at ECR Minerals (ECR), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Avanti Communications (AVN) Eden Research (FRAUD) in the wake of the demise of its sister company Environmental Recycling (see HERE), Braveheart Investments (BRH) - run by an old Sefton man, African Potash (AFPO) and its partner in slime Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR)

African Potash telling Porkies AGAIN? - Bailout placing ahoy: Sell!

On 6th January 2016 African Potash (AFPO) announced a major sales deal. Six days later it got away a bailout placing. Gradually over the months that followed that sales deal was shown to be bogus, a sham, not worth the loo paper it was written on. But at least the ramp allowed this AIM Casino posterboy to get its placing away. Now the bastards are at it again. 30 seconds on Google is enough to make you doubt a word this company says as it tries to get another bailout placing away. African is teetering on the verge of insolvency.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My father will need to admit to liking Theresa May

Tomorrow my father faces his interview at the Conservative Club and I have been coaching him on what he can say as a deluded lefty to get access to the cheep beer. Elsewhere I discuss how share prices can defy gravity temporarily and why with reference to Gable Holdings (GAH) and Gulf Keystone (GKP). Then I move onto Nyota (NYO), Avanti Communications (AVN), Strat Aero (AERO) and then, in some detail, the dog run by liars that is African Potash (AFPO)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - My father worries he may be a victim of the peasants revolt

On my personal website I have a podcast HERE about how Chilcot exposes the establishment/rest of us divide again and how this will create even more anger as the war criminal Blair walks free. My father, who is lisening to me record today, fears that he is in the firing line as a member of the establishment. I then move onto the omnishambles Boxhill (BOX), Portmeirion (PMP), Vislink (VLK), Igas (IGAS), Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR), lie and jam tomorrow producer African Potash (AFPO), Frontier Resources (FRI) and finally onto the fraudsters Eden Research (EDEN) where I will be asking for your help, dear listeners, tomorrow.

African Potash shares crash - next stop 0.3p as exercised warrants are dumped, then onto 0p

Death spiral providers Bergen are vultures. They are not nice folks. They are not long term investors. But they are not dumb either. They know that shares in African Potash (AFPO) are set to crash and so today Bergen has exercised 63.7 million warrants at 0.3p under some old deal it had. Oh dear. The shares will be admitted to trading on Wednesday but Bergen won't be waiting for then. Oh no.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: My wife's sneering, patronising, elitist, lefty pals drive me up the wall

Some of my wife's pals are such patronising bastards. They work in the public sector, read the fecking Guardian and are so fucking self righteous they can drive me up the wall as they let it be known that they just know what is good for the rest of us, we ignorant oiks. Today they sent my blood pressure soaring as I explain HERE. Then it is onto Glenwick (GWIK) and why the poltroons can't get their maths right and African Potash (AFPO) which is worth 0p. Finally a division with my daughter & her mother, Big Nose, looms, it is Wales vs Northern Ireland.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: IGAS this is a disaster & a last passionate appeal on Brexit

I start this bearcast by being nice to a bunch of folks: the bosses of Nostra Terra (NTOG), Mirada (MIRA), a junior doctor and British Airways. Then I explain why today's news from IGAS is a disaster and heralds the shares being toast. Then take apart African Potash (AFPO) after being goaded by a poltroon on twitter. Finally a final impassioned but reasoned plea to you all to ignore the lies and smears and have faith in yourself and your country and to vote for Brexit tomorrow

The Mrs is sitting in the room and thinks my analogy is a bit sexist. Fecking political correctness gone mad, that is what I say. In today's bearcast I cover, in some detail, African Potash (AFPO), Avanti Communications (AVN) and Fitbug (FITB).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - why wont African Potash answer my fecking questions?

In a very British way I start by complaining about the weather. Right now it is sheeting it down here in Greece. Then onto Plethora/Regent Pacific before tackling what the phrase "little or no value" actually means ref Circle Oil (COP). Then onto African Potash (AFPO) and I answer the questions it will not. Target price 0p.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - so what happened to Plethora?

I don't feel like writing today. This is what i want to be doing. But ahead of that I start by clarifying what I think of Matt Lofgran of Nostra Terra (NTOG). Then I look at what happened to Plethora (PLE) and that explains in part why shares in Port Erin (PEBI) have tanked. Then I touch on Thomas Cook (TCG) and prepare for ouzo o'clock when Environmental Recycling (ENRT) goes bust as I explained yesterday. Following that piece the shares are the biggest fallers today. Finally I have a warning for shareholders in African Potash (AFPO). Incoming! That is when I can be arsed.

England Cricketer Phil Edmonds, Andrew Groves, African Potash and an explosive dossier on AIM fraud

African Potash (AFPO) was one of seven companies listed on the AIM casino by former England cricketer Phil Edmonds and his business partner Andrew Groves. My attention has been drawn to a recently published dossier on the two men which can only be described as utterly explosive. On the basis of what is in this dossier any company associated with the two looks to be, pro tem, 100% uninvestable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a Nightmare about bars in Sunderland Edition

A reader says that ahead of bearcast he now gets an advert for bars in Sunderland. Poor fellow. Perhaps he should move from the welfare safaris of the grim North to the hard working South of England? I discuss this and then move onto Nyota Minerals (NYO), Aureus Mining (AUE), Driver Group (DRV), Harvest Minerals (HMI) and - in detail - the piece of excrement that is African Potash (AFPO).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 7 May - back in Greece & despairing of humanity

I have landed in Kalamata and start with a look at where Greece is now. My friend John the bike man seems to have gone bust. He is not alone. There is a three-day general strike underway but the EU reckons that Greece has solved all its problems? The EU is the problem, or rather the Euro is. Then I look at why I sometimes despair of humanity and notably some of the people in the world of small caps and AIM. I am taking it easy for the summer as a result. Finally some praise for Marcus Stuttard the bogus Sheriff of AIM but then also some criticism and suggestions re African Potash (AFPO) and Ascent Resources (AST)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bullshitting Finals - Rose vs Linney vs Brokerman Dan vs Golden Saint

Today's Bearcast contains bad language. Brokerman Dan Levi is not the only four letter word used. In it I cover Avocet Mining (AVM) and Waz Shakoor, Rose Petroloeum (ROSE), Outsourcery (OUT), Golden Saint Resources (GSR), Wishbone Gold (WSBN) and bullshitting by Brokerman Dan, New World Resources (BWR), African Potash (AFPO), the china fraud Jiasen (JSI), Blenheim (BNR) and Andalas (ADL) and bullshitting by Flip Flop Ben Turney, Big Gib and other rampers. As ever they are talking cock.

Postscript: I now have Wishbone Gold on the record. No placing is underway. It looks like the bank robber wins today's bullshitting contest.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Chris Cleverley for Jail, African Potash for Insolvency

responding to Chris Cleverley of African Potash (AFPO) starting to do soft interviews and the failure of his company to answer basic questions about Butterfly Corporate Finance I explain why Chris must go to prison for securities fraud and lying to investors and why his company must go bust, the only question is when net current assets go negative. One imagines Cleverley wants a bailout placing asap but who would be mad enough to get involved?

Bulletin Board Moron of the week contest sponsored by Ben Turney & Zak Mir

The Dave Whitby fan club (life presidents Ben flip flop" Turney, Justin the Clown, Doc Holiday and Zak "Judas" Mir) are delighted to be sponsoring this week's Bulletin Board Moron contest in honour of events at Andalas Energy (ADL) which are generating some cracking comments on the LSE Asylum and elsewhere as well as on twitter. Of course you can nominate a post on any subject or company and African Potash (AFPO) clearly has a shareholder list made up of complete imbeciles. The deadline is midnight Sunday May 1st. Or as they say in Greece: Easter Day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 24 April: More Brexit lies as fraudster Rob Terry breaks cover: why?

I start this podcast with a bit of a reflection on one or two excellent pieces this weekend notably my own stuff on African Potash (AFPO) and the Horse Hill ramp but also the cracking piece today by Cynical Bear on Fast Forward (FFWD). In the bearcast I also look at a stack more Brexit lies as well as discussing why Rob Terry has broken cover and where the SFO is with its investigation into the fraudster.

Will the birth of Prince be celebrated in two hundred years or his death in 400. I start with a reflection on a chat with my father. Then it is onto the first red flag at African Potash (AFPO) and why folks should have run a mile back then. Finally I point out after today's bombshell why folks are looking at valuing all the Horse Hill stocks, but especially UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) in just the wrong way altogether.

African Potash this is not about bad PR this is about FRAUD - the shares must be suspended, CEO should go to jail

If anyone sees Chris Cleverley about town make sure he reads this. The "spin" from supporters of African Potash (AFPO) is that the events of yesterday are just a matter of bad PR, nothing unusual on the AIM casino and we should just move on. Ben "flip flop" Turney tweets such nonsense. Boy has flip flop lost the plot. African has been seen to have made statements via RNS, as it worked a placing away that were just, by its own admission, untrue. It raised cash on a false prospectus. That is fraud. Its shares must be suspended and its CEO Chris Cleverley deserves to go to prison. And he might just do that. Flip Flop sent out two tweets on this matter yesterday:

Sorry for the late bearcast - just back from the 20 week scan. All on track, fingers crossed. I end with news about Mr Bagot, the penioner mugged by WH Ireland. I start with Metal Tiger (MTR) and my story of earlier and the comments of morons. I then move onto African Potash (AFPO) and Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) before ending on Andalas (ADL) - where's the RNS Mr Dave "I break the rules" Whitby? I also cover Strat Aero (AERO), see HERE,  and Goldenport (GPRT).

Tom Winnifrith to AIM Regulation: Formal Complaint - African Potash & Cantor Fitzgerald

Shareholders in African Potash (AFPO) should be on the warpath. Not with myself and Lucian who they have, to date, berated for pointing out what a piece of Turkish this company is. But with its management for issuing statements which are just not true - as explained HERE. Following my earlier article I have now asked AIM Regulation to launch a formal enquiry into both Potash and also its Nomad, Cantor Fitzgerald, which signed off on its RNS statements having somehow verified them as true. The letter reads:

African Potash, No No No you are lying bastards

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 4 March - Arguing with a Drunken Sailor as rats jump ship from AIM

Rules are rules and whether it is soccer playing sex offenders or AIM Companies you have to stick to them. Moreover a COI is a COI even if sign off on and some may be legally kosher but are morally wrong. I refer to my rows with DS on 3Legs Resources (3LEG). I look at Monitise (MONI), rats leaving AIM, viz Edge Resources (EDG) & UMC Energy (UEP). I ask where is the fraud at African Potash (AFPO)? And then - to entertain Wildes - I look at LGO Energy (SHITE) again as well as at Iofina (IOF) - when will it fess up? I also ask a question of Audioboom (BOOM)

I look at African Potash (AFPO), LGO Energy (TOAST) and the total farce at Petroceltic (PCI  - bad language alert in that section.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast St David's Day: Sheep Porn, Barclays & More Horse Shite

In today's St David's Day podcast I wish my Welsh listeners a happy national day and - especially for you - discuss why sheep porn matters. I then move onto Horse Hill and today's news and why Ben Turney and the other silly rampers are talking shit.  To make it simple, I use the analogy of Ms Cheryl Cole and Mr Wayne Rooney. I discuss African Potash (AFPO), letters of credit and thus Environmental Recycling (ENRT) and its fellow FRAUD Eden Research (EDEN). Its PR man Queenie McManus is - I assume - still smearing me as he chats to his pals the Bulletin Board Morons - but the company refuses to meet for an interview. What - other than fraud - is it hiding? I discuss Greka Drilling (GDL) as it heads down the pan and - after today's results from Barclays (BARC) - banks in general and why Old Getafix is wrong to be such a bull.

African Potash - Run for the Hills: this stinks

African Potash (AFPO) was on a crazy valuation prior to today but has just run a red flag up the mastpole which must make any sane investor on this planet (and perhaps even some of its deranged groupies on the LSE Asylum) run for the hills.

On January 6 2015 this company announced the sale of a stack of fertiliser in Bongo Bongo land. The terms were explicit:

African Potash - after the pump comes the dump but how long till the next fund raise?

It was all so predictable. On 6 January African Potash (AFPO) issued an RNS which was both utterly pointless but also just about credible enough to have the Bulletin Board Morons/Zak Mir frothing. The morons ploughed into the aftermarket - not noticing that the RNS was in fact just confirming that part of a deal already announced several months prior had been completed but that no financials were revealed - paying up to 2.1p per share. The crony capitalists said "thank you very much cannon fodder" on the back of the pump and today came the dump... a placing raising gross proceeds of £825,000 at just 1.7p. However...

Back in the UK I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP), African Potash (AFPO) and LGO Energy (LGO)

This company is drowning in red flags and is a 100% bargepole stock. It is just worthless shite on the AIM Casino. The shares are a storming sell.

It may be delayed again if I have to head to Athens on Global Shorting Conspiracy business. Things are starting to get interesting as I mention briefly and this is NOT Globo (GBO). Elsewhere I cover Edenville (EDL), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Sweet Group (CSG), Atlantic Coal (ATC), Iofina (IOF) and African Potash (AFPO).
