Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: One Russian I would send to jail TODAY

Yes it is Mrs Darren Winters and I’d send the snake oil salesman to the salt mines of Rotherham too.  I have spoken to a £35,000 victim this morning and this really is a stain on UK financial services that I hope the FCA will finally act on after 25 years of doing nothing. I explain why I hope they might.

Outside paywall: Charlatan snake oil salesman Darren Winters joins the crypto bandwagon with Afrostar: Avoid like the plague

Has poor Africa not suffered enough? War. Famine. Disease. Visits from Bob Geldof and Bono. Surely the continent deserves a break? Oh no, now it has to cope with conman, charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters whose criminal antics on this website have been exposed so often.

Charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters fleeces another punter for £29,000 – the Teacher’s Tale

I am afraid that I still continue to get a stream of letters from victims of charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters. His courses are worthless and the claims he makes are just untrue, as the ASA noted here. Yet Winters regards brushes with the ASA or The Sheriff of AIM fighting on behalf of victims in the Courts  (and winning!) as just another cost of business and carries on, as he has done for almost 20 years, with industrial scale larceny. What follows is the teacher’s tale

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: on Oxi day why conman, cheat and lying fraudster Darren Winters loves the EU

It is Oxi day here in Greece and I explain the historic context of that which brings me to why the EU has enabled conman Darren Winters to keep cheating the vulnerable and parting them from their money. I then look at Crawshaw (CRAW), Blue Jay Mining (JAY), Great Western Mining (GWMO) which is the ultimate penny dreadful, SalvaRx (SALV) and VR Education (VRE). And I should warn my old pal, the offshore based asset stripper, Jim Mellon that I have more bad news for him over the weekend.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Hey Robbie Burns are you Darren Winters in a cheap suit? And why First Derivatives shares should more than halve!

Apparently Robbie Burns, The Naked Trader, is giving Darren Winters style uber expensive and useless trading courses at which he terms me a drunk. Hmmmm... As a sub 5 units a week man, my PA investing is not going so badly that I have to resort to being Darren Winters in a cheap suit.  The bulk of this podcast is on First Derivatives (FDP). After yesterday's bombshell expose I explain why the shares - down 25% last week - could easily more than halve again from here.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: On the phone today to a woman in floods of tears this Christmas Eve

In this bearcast I look at the role of NEDs and their failings in a bull market. that is a general point I then discuss the NEDs at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) and how they MUST be replaced at once. The COI are surely too great. I then discuss a woman reduced to tears by charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters this Christmas Eve.This story will horrify you. I then discuss Christmas. Whatever you do, however you spend the day I hope that it is in some way joyous. That magical moment at Midnight Mass as you sing "Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning" and you realise it is Christmas Day is now only hours away.

Tom Winnifrith: The most important bearcast ever - news of a big change here on Thursday

I have been thinking long and hard about this all summer but there is no alternative as the great Lady Thatcher used to say. Evil Google provides no content but sucks all of the ad revenue from online media. Our advertising revenue has collapsed so ShareProphets must either accept the custom of utter dirtbags like Darren Winters, continue to be subsidised by the UK Investor Show or fold. Or it must charge for access. I believe that asking you to pay £6 a month for 300 articles and for utterly unique content is something you will agree to and so on Thursday it is pay to play. I explain why evil Google is forcing our hand and what will happen and what the choices are in, perhaps the most important bearcast in our history.

Reader poll: Who has been stupid enough to send Tom Winnifrith a lawyer's letter now?

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

Charlatan & Snake Oil Salesman Darren Winters slammed by Judge, another thrashing due April 3

Oh dear, the charlatan Darren Winters who has made millions over the past fifteen years conning poor folks into paying vast sums to attend his worthless courses is having a bad start to 2017. First there was a total slating by the ASA for telling lies to win custom, now we can publish the Judges's verdict in a case we backed where Winters tried to exact money with menaces. The Judge was damning.

Video: Darren Winters' evil Mrs Tatjana reckons cancer is down to bad thoughts - but she can help cure it

The evil Mrs of charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters lied to a judge the other day saying that I was not a reliable witness and that she was planning legal action against me. Methinks not darling. The scale of just how wicked Tatjana Winters is can now be revealed as she, like her husband, prays on the vulnerable and desperate once again.

Charlatan Darren Winters Coughs up costs but even at the last tries to cheat us out of 40p - think again pal

I am delighted to say that the snake oil salesman Darren Winters, slammed by the ASA for telling blatant lies as we revealed HERE last week, has decided not to appeal against his latest court room thrashing by one of his victims, a case we funded. Given the Judge's damning verdict in Snake Oil vs Mr O, that was a wise call by the Charlatan. But even now he is trying to swindle us out of 40p. Think again Darren and your frightful wife Tatjana, the Foxy Legals are on the case.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Ouzo time for me but a bad bathtime for an AIM CEO tonight

The ouzo refers to the latest crushing blow for snakeoil salesman Darren Winters. This man has claimed to have fleeced, sorry trained, 500,000 Britons yet still the deadwood press fail to report on our takedown of the charlatan. Pathetic. The bathtime refers to the CEO of Tracsis (TRCS) who claims to listen to bearcast in his bath. I comment on today's trading update. Then it is onto China fraud Jiasen (JSI) and its latest bollocks news signed off by low life Nomad Cairn Financial. And then after an en passant look at Polemos (PLMO) I take a very detailed look at Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR) which is overvalued hype with a bushel of red flags thrown in for good measure. I advise my pal Big Dave Lenigas to take profits and sell and others to do likewise.

BREAKING: Stockmarket Charlatan & Snake Oil Salesman Darren Winters slammed by ASA for more porkies!

I think that makes it ouzo o'clock already, stockmarket charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters, fresh from his crushing Court defeat on 1 February bankrolled by The Sheriff of AIM, has now been slammed by the Advertising Standards Agency for lying to potential investors. The judgement below is damning. We are due in court again on April 3 backing another of his victims so this is very useful indeed.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: V is for Vermin, Vendetta and Vindication

There is a convicted criminal & twice bankrupted man who is barred from being a company director who wants to shut this website down and me with it. Events today at Cloudtag (CTAG) - where the shares will, as I explain, now tank fast - and in the Courts regarding Darren Winters show how vital our work is. And frankly it requires gonads of steel to see off fraudsters and criminals who do not like what we do.  I also cover Stratmin (STGR) and Management Resource Solutions (MRS) today and thank you all for the supportive messages. We are 100% vindicated today. Certain convicted crims should just send me a case of ouzo and STFU

Shameless Tatjana, the wife of Snake oil salesman Darren Winters lies to a Judge about Tom Winnifrith

Yesterday Darren Winters and his company was in court trying to extract money from a mug punter. We funded the defence of Mr O and you can read about the massive victory for us, damning words for the judge and humiliation of Winters here. But let us first deal with Tatjana, the wife of Winters who was representing his firm in Court and lied to the Judge.

BREAKING: Snake Oil Salesman & Charlatan Darren Winters defeated and humiliated in Court - The curse of ShareProphets is upon him

For almost 20 years, the spiv Darren Winters has been making a killing charging mug punters five figure sums for utterly worthless stockmarket courses. His salesman get punters to sign pieces of paper which they say do not bind them to anything then bully and threaten folks for thousands of pounds. In 2015 we started to expose this conman and Winters threatened us with legal action unless we desisted HERE. We said "see you in Court Bitchez!" and he declined that offer. We then started funding various cases of folks who Winters was trying to fleece. Winters has used google to try to stop people finding out about this (see HERE) but yesterday one case came to Court. It was a disastrous humiliation for Winters - who sent his ghastly Mrs Tatjana to represent him - and ouzo o'clock for ShareProphets & the Sheriff of AIM. Here is the story of Mr O.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the Curse of Justin the Clown strikes again

In this podcast I look at Daniel Stewart (DAN) where Waseem Shakoor closed his short today. I look at the lunacy there, the lunacy at Cloudtag (CTAG) and show how it is the same folks, the sort of folks who are also preyed on by conman Darren Winters. On that note please read THIS ARTICLE TODAY - and tweet it out and link to it on Facebook and on any website you can. I look at Strat Aero (AERO), Ferrum Crescent (FCR), Avanti Communications (AVN) and then at another stock cursed by the frothing endorsement of the Clown, MySquar (MYSQ) which is a right old dog and its well spun RNS today can't hide that.

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.

We take up the case of a 4th person fleeced by Charlatan Darren Winters - J's shocking story

We are now working with FOUR victims of snake oil salesman, the charlatan Darren Winters as we fund their Court cases as they try to stop Winters stealing more of their cash. The dirtbag Winters has yet to do anything about his threat to sue me for libel for calling him a charlatan and a snake oil salesman which is a pain as I really want to see him and his ghastly Mrs in Court. I guess the bitchez are scared. But here is an update on three other cases plus the tale of No 4 - J.

An hour at the hypnobirthing "taster session" felt like an eternity

Hypnobirthing is apparently a way to make pregnancy less painful and stressful and so the Mrs and I went on a "taster" session with a private company charging an arm and a leg for full courses. I would rather have spent an hour watching paint dry as it was from beinnning to end both excruciatingly awful and also a really unpleasant sales pitch for old rope.

We were one of five couples. I was the only person in the room who has been through this birth process business before and the naivete of the other members of the Bristol middle classes present was jaw dropping. We started in a session where we split into three groups and had to say how many weeks we were, what our names were and what we brought us to the session. Honestly, I relayed that I thought the whole thing was a total con and I was there becuase my Mrs wanted me to be there. Our group spokesperson had to summarise what the 4 folks in our group thought but for some reason omitted my remarks. 

This was a session about beng "nice" to everyone. A woman who was 28 weeks and had a face like a horse

Bulletin Board Moron of the week (11/16) in honour of charlatan and snake oil salesman Darren Winters

Darren Winters sent me a lawyers letter in the Autumn for calling him a charlatan and snake oil salesman and threatening me with legal action if I did not withdraw what is a statement of fact. I shall see the Winters bitchez in court and he is a moron for thinking I'd say anything else. Anyhow Winters got another courtroom beating from team Sheriff today so maybe he has learned who not to try to bully. Back to real morons and this week's Bulletin Board Moron of the Week contest where there was only one winner...

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 11 April - my keyboard wont let me say fecking hell

On the markets I look at Iofina (IOF), Avanti Communications (AVN), Imaginitik (IMTK), SFO Prosecutions, Strat Aero (AERO) and I also again comment on the great news about Darren Winters from earlier today.

Oh happy days, oh happy days! Darren Winters the snake oil salesman who cons punters out of tens of thousands of pounds for his worthless stockmarket Win Investing courses has suffered another courtroom thrashing at the hands of the foxy legals, the lawyers who work with the Sheriff of AIM in tackling white collar villains. The foxy's remain undefeated in the Sheriff's wars, Winters is again shown for the scumbag he is - the case ( again) is Miss L.

Snake Oil salesman & Charlatan Darren Winters - Karma: Gotcha

Snake oil salesman and charlatan Darren Winters has been a plague on financial services for more than a decade, raking it in with his worthless but costly training courses. Last year he objected to my revelations about his shoddy scam and sent me lawyers letters demanding a retraction - naturally my reply was "see you in Court bitchez". Yesterday Karma bit the charlatan on the backside.

I was contacted by a number of folks who Winters had already screwed out of their hard earned cash but who had received legal looking letters from Winters demanding additional five figure sums for coursses they did not want to undertake. Among them was Ms L from London.

Snake Oil Salesman and charlatan Darren Winters is at it again – the appalling tale of Mr. O

So far Darren Winters has declined to take up my kind “see you in Court Bitchez” offer. The charlatan and his Wealth Management Training LLP threatened me with a libel case but has done nothing which is a shame as the disclosure process would be a scream. But we have funded and taken up the case of Miss L from whom Winters wishes to extract cash. We fight and look forward to that day in Court. Now we are taking up another case – Mr. O. Prepare to be horrified.

Video of UK Investor Show Presentation by Rare Earth Minerals

Darren Winters Stockmarket Charlatan Expose – Part 2

In a few hours Mr Darren Winters will stand up as a main stage speaker at a marginal investor show in London. Most media organisations will not give him airtime but some are so devoid of principle that they will take his money to allow him to peddle his snake oil.  I explained yesterday why so many of his claims are bogus HERE, now to how he gets folks to part with their cash.

Darren Winters – the stockmarket’s greatest Charlatan – part 1

Darren Winters claims to be the UK’s top financial trainer and to have assisted over 400,000 people learn about the stockmarket. Yet most reputable financial companies including ADVFN and ourselves refuse to have anything to do with him, viewing him as an utter charlatan. Having spoken at length to a former employee of his I shall over the course of two articles explain why you should have nothing to do with this man or with any media organisation that takes his cash to allow him to peddle his snake oil to its customers. Only unprincipled scumbags deal with Winters taking his cash to allow their customers to get screwed.

Winters claims that his critics are driven by jealousy. Whatever. My motivation in writing this is to expose a man who has made millions from mug punters and seems incapable of telling the truth and to shame those who – like a trivial trade show in London tomorrow give him a platform and so betray investors, in return for hard cash.

Has anyone been “trained” or “fleeced” by the charlatan Darren Winters? Get in Touch please

For years I have been meaning to “do a piece” on financial trainer Darren Winters because he is a proven liar and a charlatan. Next week I plan to run a multi-part series on the man and its gloves off time. Can anyone assist? Winters claims to have “trained” more than 250,000 folks in the UK so I assume some of them will be reading this and I’d like to hear from you.
