Calling any FD’s with a career death wish, a Standard Listed fraud with a CEO on Police Bail wants YOU!

Readers of this website already knew that Umuthi (UHS) a company admitted to the Standard List after full FCA due diligence, was a fraud after our series of exposes HERE. You also knew that its CEO Gert Viljoen and the fraudster Queen Connie Van Nieuwkerk had been arrested as we revealed HERE. Today, it got worse. Much worse.

BREAKING: Vindicated again, Umuthi arrests now starting in South Africa – will the FCA now accept there may be a problem?

I exposed the fraud that is Standard Listed Umuthi (UHS) in a devastating seroies of articles HERE.  The FCA has the shares suspended but, perhaps because of its own grotesque bungling detailed HERE, has yet to admit there is a problem. Perhaps now that arrests have started in South Africa that might change.

10 red flags we all might have spotted at the Umuthi fraud

This weekend’s short letter on the N50 website will look at a company whose shares you can trade. Today, I am feeling pretty proud of my take-down of Standard Listed Umuthi (UHS) whose March 4 IPO was to have valued it at £368 million. A series of articles HERE has seen its sole NED resign and nobody now seems to doubt that this is a complete fraud with no business and that the revelations are truly shocking. Sadly, as it is an obvious zero, its shares are suspended but there are lessons. Here are 10 signs that this was a fraud:

Another Winnileaks bombshell – Gert Viljoen sends a lie packed email to Umuthi shareholders

Thanks to the Winnileaks service I have been sent an email from Gert Viljoen, the CEO of the Umuthi (UHS) fraud, sent on 18 September 2019, almost 18 months before the FCA allowed this con to list. Read and weep at the lies Gert told to folks sold shares in Umuthi by either him or the Queen of the fraudsters Connie Van Nieuwkerk with most of the cash trousered by Gert or Connie and a bit going to Umuthi.

Winnileaks special - FCA assures the fraud Umuthi NO formal enquiry

By June 10 as the FCA suspended trading in shares in the fraud Umuthi (UHS) for a second time it had been aware for a while that this IPO was put together by a fraudster known for cooking the books and banned from doing any financial services work by the South African equivalent of the FCA. But in this letter, passed to the Winnileaks service, sent  to Umuthi while it asks a stack of questions the FCA stresses there is NO formal enqury. FFS why not? And some of the questions it asks, regarding the resignations of Memery Crystal and PKF Littlejohn should surely have been asked back in March, rather than after the shares were allowed to resume trading – albeit for only two weeks – on May 25. The FCA is not fit for purpose as we noted here. The letter is below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - what about the victims?

I discuss a fascinating article about XL Media (XLMHERE in the Times of Israel. If I wanted to list a fraud I’d be big on ESG as was XL. Chris Bailey’s fund manager pals would love it as I stole all the cash. I look at gender targets and ask what they should be, referencing Principals of Cambridge Colleges. I look at Mercantile Ports (MPL) and PrimaryBid and then what I plan, or hope, to do next about the fraud Umuthi (UHS), ask the victims to tell their stories. I look at Paul Johnson’s Power Metal Resources (POW) and its latest news which takes me back to 2007 and Mark Watson Mitchell’s Yellowcake. I comment on Asimilar (ASLR) and then go to town on Deepverge (DVRG) and its journalist trolling cock of a CEO Gerry Brandon explaining why I believe investors were materially misled in the run up to the £10 million June 7 placing and why the company is, for a variety of reasons, a total bargepole. It is just not investment grade material.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus bearcast - talking to a man about Umuthi, forged bank documents and other matters

In between trying to make mint cordial, mint ice cream and damson jam last night I had a call from a man who had done some work for Umuthi (UHS) and what he said about a forged document purporting to show a bank transfer and a blocked site visit is further evidence of what a complete fraud this is from top to bottom. I relay it to you and wonder what the FCA will say about this?

Then I flag up a few personal committments which sees me cooking like a dervish for a few days but then I shall be onto my next fraud expose which is also in Africa but this time with AIM listed companies. Then I look at comedy from ADVFN (AFN) ask a serious question abut Chill Brands (CHLL) and the proven liar John Story and finally discuss Argo Blockchain (ARB)

BOMBSHELL EXPOSE: Umuthi - The Standard List fraud that exposes the slime at the heart of the City of London, part 9: the disgraceful failures of the FCA, not fit for purpose

So far you have met the fraudster Queen, the other South Africans on the board who are mired in this fraud and an enabler, broker Pello and its boss Andy Frangos who are also deeply implicated in  the Umuthi (UHS) bezzle and the patsy UK NED Colin Bloom - now since resigned. Then we established that nobody actually knows how many shares there are in issue. and finally we established that there is almost certainly no real business at Umuthi whatever it accounts state!  And then we exposed the red flags over auditors and the enablers at Jeffreys Henry Earlier today I turned to the resignation of Memery Crystal. Next up is the UK’s regulator and why this episode, again, shows it to be not fit for purpose.

Now we turn to the resignation of lawyers Memery Crystal a firm I have thrice beaten off after it sent fascist bully boy letters threatening me on behalf of crooks like Chris Cleverly. Memery was lawyer to Umuthi.

TomWinnifrith Bearcast: when the facts change what do you do: Umuthi and MyHealthchecked

As folks close to the fraud Umuthi (UHS) start to play the man not the ball I set the record straight. I have agonised about the ethics of this as a journalist but feel I have no choice and then to MyHealthChecked (MHC) where we shareholders have to accept that facts changed today.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - thoughts on 9/11 and the advantages of being older as greed is all around us

I start with a few reflections on that dreadful day 20 years ago. Then look at Oxford Nanopore and Central Copper and the advantages as an investor of having been around the block a few times as greed right now is all around us. Finaly a few more words on Umuthi (UHS) after today’s shocking exposes and what the FCA needs to do asap about this scandal.

Footnote: Will Colin Bloom’s powerful Tory pals or the God he professes to love protect him from the Umuthi sleaze?

Thanks to a reader who points out that Colim Bloom, the patsy English NED at the fraud Umuthi (UHS), is a leading and well connected Tory as well as a devout Christian. For £3,000 a month he seems happy to remain a director afraid of no comeback. Perhaps that is because, like the fraudster Chris Cleverly who amazingly enough is linked into this story too, he is well connected to leading Tories.  Or maybe, like Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer (Praise be the Lord), he is doing God’s work?  Here is a news release from our beloved Government. Pass the sick bag.

Now for a simple question? How many  shares were in issue when this company floated?

MAJOR SHOCKING EXPOSE: Umuthi Healthcare Solutions- The Standard List fraud that exposes the slime at the heart of the City of London, part 1 The Fraud Queen

After sending a prospectus for FCA approval again and again since 2017,  Umuthi Healthcare Solutions (UHS) finally got approval on the 24th attempt and on 4th March this year, its shares joined the Standard List. Six days after listing, its auditors quit, joining two legal advisory firms who had already resigned in the previous 12 months. The shares were suspended and then trading restored on 25th May. They were again suspended on 10th June and look set to never come back as this is the most scandalous of frauds as I shall explain with a series of shocking exposes over the next 48 hours.

Will the late Roy Castle be getting his book out again? Is Umuthi set for the shortest stockmarket career ever covering the FCA ( again) in manure?

Eurasia Mining (EUA), of which more later has already met Roy this week as it became the company to have enjoyed the longest spell ever under a Formal Sale Process without actually getting a bid or admitting there would be no bid. It snatched that record from Best of the Best ( 251 days) on Thursday morning. But before the late Mr Castle thinks his job is over, I sense Umuthi Healthcare (UHS) may also get to meet him Norris and, of course, Cheryl Baker, formerly of Bucks Fizz. In doing so it will show that however many women the FCA promotes it is still useless.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: We are under a DOS attack @ShareProphets and a Zoetic owning moron claims credit

s the Zoetic (ZOE) owning moron really responsible. Clearly he does not believe in a free press, hates me and boasts of it. But we are under a massive attack which is a bit of a distraction. Elsewhere I look at the bonkers turn of events at Umuthi (UHS) and speculate why the FCA has suspended the shares.
