Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation re social media promoters paid in shares, ramping, pumping & dumping

I have, today, written to both the FCA and the oxymorons at AIM Regulation, on, what seems to me, sure-fire market abuse. The original letter names two AIM Companies and one “social media influencer” (I have redacted the names below). But I understand that the problem is not confined to these two companies and one “social media influencer”, and I am urging the authorities to work together on tackling what seems a growing issue.

BREAKING: AAA shares suspended – where does that leave the Chris Akers possible market abuse and promised share purchase

Yesterday I exposed how penny shares hucksters Chris Akers and Johnny Mahtani were, in a private Telegram chatroom, discussing concerted share buying by themselves and others, something which looks very much like market abuse. Today the shares have been suspended.

EXPOSE: Are penny share promoter Chris Akers & a high profile SPAC boss committing market abuse in private chatroom? Company response is to smear critics!

The company is All Active Asset Capital (AAA) a grossly over-ramped and over valued AIM sewer promote when penny share spiv Chris Akers is involved. Soo too is Johnny Mahtani the boss of Media Tech SPAC a murky, newly formed, company backed by Akers planning a stockmarket listing within months. There is a private Telegram group where Akers, Mahtani and others pump the stock. The screenshot below is from yesterday evening.

Another red flag at [email protected] Capital - more rogueish e-mail behaviour by the market abusing CEO Zamboni

The chairman of [email protected] Capital (SYME) is an insider dealer, we already knew that the CEO was a market abuser and yesterday it became apparent to all that it is making up its accounting policies as it goes along. Its supposed clients, such as Carrefour, appear to be fiction, and now another email from Alessandro Zamboni surfaces. Oh dear.

Shocker: [email protected] admits that bogus report its CEO was tweeting about was – as I revealed - fake news: #Zamboni4Prison

Last night I revealed how, despite being warned that an article with ludicrous price targets for [email protected] Capital (SYME) shares was fake, the CEO Allessandro Zamboni tweeted it out causing his cretinous followers to pledge to fill their boots today. Last night there was no sign of contrition but, I suspect, my communications with my good friends at the FCA rather focussed a few minds.  So this morning we have an RNS admission of fake news from the company. It is not good enough, Zamboni has committed market abuse and should be in jail and it shows his company is a scam.

Letter to FCA – Full enquiry into Dev Clever, Mark Horrocks and Chris Akers & possible market abuse

Novacyt shareholder commits market abuse impersonating Tom Winnifrith to keep the ramp going

And one particularly deranged individual showed “evidence” of me ramping the stock on May 18. Hang on Henry! This is market abuse. It’s personation. It’s fraud.

Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation re potential Market Manipulation or Abuse at Versarien

BREAKING: The blatant market abuse at Dev Clever – the FCA does seem to be taking it seriously

I contacted the FCA last week about what appears to be blatant market abuse, or possibly even securities fraud, at Dev Clever (DEV) and to its credit it has sent back a non standard reply indicating that it is taking the matter very seriously. As a reminder, Dev did a placing on December 20 2019 and its CEO sold £500,000 shares a month later only to admit in February that sales for the six months to 31 October 2019 were way below forecast. How can a software firm have not had any inkling of that before the placing and CEO share dump. It defies belief. The FCA writes:

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:

Big Dish – at best reckless with its language

This may be the main bearcast or it may be a bonus. It all depends on how I feel and daughter Olaf feels after I pick her up at 4.30 AM Athens time in the Greek capital. In this I look at Falanx (FLX), the red flag of a rapid change in advisers ref Halosource (HALO) but also in more general terms and then at a shameless performance by John Meyer of SP Angel as he is interviewed by Justin the Clown over Bluejay (JAY). Meyer is at best an idiot, at worst he is covering up for what appears to be market abuse by his employer in relation to Bluejay shares. I will not let this one go. The clown's podcast is torture to listen to but can be found HERE if you feel you deserve 20 minutes of torture.

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.

Metal Tiger £1 million placing: can the morons line up to apologise to me

Last week I broke the news that Metal Tiger (MTR) was working on a placing and that Andy Thacker at SI Capital was the broker doing the placing. I dont make things like this up and gave Mr Thacker a chanjce to comment before publishing. I was lambasted by BB Morons for making it up and was told the company would phone me over the weekend to tell me I was wrong. There was no placing, Metal needed no cash. I was accused of market abuse for saying there was a placing. Well guess what?

Market Abuser Chris Oil flees country to escape a beating from Tom Winnifrith

It seems that Chris Oil is not only a market abuser, a liar, a fantasist and a criminal but he is also a two faced hyprocritical coward, now fleeing the country rather than face an older, unfit man in the boxing match Oil (a self proclaimed boxing champion) had challenged that older man to.

Market abusing criminal Chris Oil: I am going to "kick the brains" out of Tom Winnifrith - here's his chance

Chris Oil has taken to twitter threatenening to "kick the brains" out of me. I guess at least I had some brains to start with. The little twerp says that he will do this if he meets me in the street before going on to boast that he was the U-18 school boxing champion at school. Hmmm. Which school was that you lying twerp? Until 2005 there were only c20 schools in the UK still boxing, I suppose I could check whether the man whose family discovered the North Sea/owned half of Birmingham really is a great pugilist.

Hey criminal Chris Oil & SP Angel what's happening with the IPO of bankrupt basket case Mkango?

Oh dear. Oh dear. This looks like another disaster for the lying criminal market abuser Chris Oil who in October put £100,000 into bankrupt TSX listed Mkango Resources at 2.5 Canadian Cents. The stock closed Friday at just 1 Canadian cent with 100,000 shares traded - that would be £500 worth of confetti. But it is not the lobster pot status of Mkango that should really trouble the twerp Oil....it is the ominous silence.

Of course, what Nomad SP Angel and Mr Oil failed to realise is that Mkango is, as we speak, insolvent, I guess the self-styled Britain's Buffet (sic) is just too clever to do any basic balance sheet analysis. So where are we now Mr Oil?

MX Oil forced to admit to fund raise by Chris Oil lying as he commits market abuse

Earlier today we flagged up that Chris Oil was committing market abuse by revealing information given to him as an insider in claiming that he owned bonds in MX Oil (MXO). We passed this information onto the Nomad by sending it our article - apparently no-one at Cairn understands how twitter works. That forced MX to issue a statement saying it was doing a debt fund raising - which I gather Oil is participating in - but had not yet completed it. So not only was Oil revealing inside information but he was also lying...the issue is not yet done. As for whether you should follow the little twerp and sign up for the issue?

The Mrs listened to me recording Bearcast today and said that I seemed very happy. Maybe it is the thought of the next Afriag (AFRI) article I am working on or perhaps it was the second painkiller of the day kicking in? Or maybe a truly moronic Bulletin Board Moron posting? In this upbeat mood I discuss who should feature in this year's three part Christmas Carol? Fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas or market abuser Chris Oil? Or should I run two series? Then a discussion on when Fitbug (FITB) goes bust. After that - in a bad language section - I discuss Arian Silver (AQG) and its fucktard PR man Dominic Baretto. I move onto Plethora (PLE), Aveva (AVV), Concha (CHA), 88 Energy (88E) and Caza Oil & Gas (CAZ) before rattling off the names of a few other small oilers that really are zeros.

Rob Terry will, I am sure, soon be arrested by the SFO over the Quindell (QPP) fraud but the crook is not finished in his criminal ways.

Next up is a detailed look at today's news from Environmental Recycling (ENRT), formerly 3DM, then onto Tomco, Rose Petroleum, Tungsten, Blinkx, Sefton and Solgold. And then for some folks out there - including Chris Oil - I explain what constitutes market abuse and/or insider dealing and what the FCA should do about what is NOT a victimless crime.

Boycott ShareProphets if you support market abuse – a statement by Ben Turney & Tom Winnifrith

The share blogger of the year Brokerman Dan is calling on investors to boycott ShareProphets because we accused him of over-promoting Sefton before dumping most of his shares (five days after tweeting  It's back to the rumour mill on #SER for me chaps! Am I selling? Not on your life. Tick! Tock! Goes the Stryker clock!) and for pointing out that his pal Chris Oil committed blatant market abuse bt tweeting bullishly as he dumped ALL his Sefton stock.  Whatever.  IF YOU SUPPORT MARKET ABUSE PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS SITE AND BLOCK BOTH OF US ON TWITTER. However Dan makes a few other points.

Sefton – it gets better: Chris Oil Pumps and Dumps even More than Brokerman Dan - this is market abuse

That crony capitalist Brokerman Dan is today exposed as a pump and dump merchant in Sefton (SER) is horrifying enough – see HERE. But now mad blogger Chris Oil of New World infamy (HERE) is show to be quite frankly guilty of market abuse. This is shameless and revolting.

Progress report on the "boycott ShareProphets" campaign by supporters of market abuse

Hmmmmm, sorry to tell those who are urging investors to boycott ShareProphets because we oppose market abuse but your campaign is, like the share price of Sefton Resources, going down in flames. We are having a great day.

A director share trade is not always a signal for you to trade– ref Interquest, Volex & Quindell

The conventional wisdom is that you should follow the “insiders” that is the board in terms of buying and selling shares. Sometimes the conventional wisdom is wrong. We can start with buys.

A director share buy is only significant if it is truly material in terms of the net wealth and salary of that director. Looking at many director buys I almost think they are tantamount to market abuse. They are not material and their sole aim appears to be to support the share price. One might refer to the serial Quindell (QPP) buys announced a day at a time after Gotham as a case in point. This was nothing more than an exercise in PR – the willingness of any of those buying back in April 2014 to subsequently dump all their shares at far lower prices clearly demonstrates that.

FCA asked to investigate Quindell for Market Abuse (again)

If a quoted company issues a statement that misleads investors it and its executive officers are guilty of market abuse. Quindell (QPP) did just that yesterday and thus I have again written to the FCA asking it to launch yet another investigation into Quindell and its chairman David Currie and CEO Robert Fielding. Yes that is the same Mr Fielding who bought RTA for £68.40 in December 2014 and sold it to Quenron for £2 million a couple of weeks later. Quite why he has not been suspended by Quindell’s HR Manager Jill Harrison for that pending a full investigation defies belief. 

The letter reads.

Vince Cable MP, Andrew Tyrie MP and Peter Hain MP – J’accuse ref Quindell

Just when you thought that our MPs could not sink any lower in talking complete bollocks as they engage in populist pre-election vote grubbing, they turn up en masse to surprise you with a new act of idiocy. Leading the charge on this occasion is the economic illiterate business secretary Vince Cable and the matter at hand is Quindell (QPP).

Cable, Andrew Tyrie (the Tory buffoon in charge of the Treasury Select Committee) and the expenses fiddling permatanned Peter Hain of Labour are lambasting the FCA for not dealing with market abuse at Quenron. Yes…I think you know what is coming next.

Coms – blatant market abuse and is the Nomad set to resign?

Coms (COMS) is the gift that keeps on giving. In today’s instalment we have wholesale market abuse and the question of when the Nomad might jump ship. Meanwhile the company needs to clarify its financial position. Is it trading only thanks to the support of banks who could pull the overdraft at any time? Methinks yes.

The market abuse first. Yesterday a blog post appeared HERE which purported to give specific details of a takeover bid at 5.6p per share even naming the party. I have naturally reported this to the FCA for giving out information one knows to be false is called market abuse. It is a criminal offence.

Update: The page has been changed.

Formal Request to FCA to investigate David Currie and Quindell for Market Abuse

On Monday 22 February the fraud Quindell (QPP) put out a statement that misled investors as to the status of its discussions with Slater & Gordon as to the sale of QLS. Slater and Gordon was forced to clarify the situation with its own statement. Shares soared on the Quenron RNS but retreated as S&G revealed the truth. As such this begs the real question as to whether David Currie, the chairman of Quenron and old pal of Mr Robert Simon Terry, is guilty of market abuse. I have written to the FCA today asking it to launch a formal enquiry.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 16 February - Market abuse and other matters

In today's podcast I discuss what exactly is market abuse and who commits it. I talk about how I reported myself for market abuse to the FCA when dealing with bully boy lawyers from Range Resources. And who really commits it. At a company level I look at 3 Legs Resources, Afren , TXO, Northern Petroleum and Mosman Oil and Gas.

Tom Winifrith and Colin Firth say buy Quindell? No Its a Moron breaking the law

The publication of material that you know to be untrue or misleading in an attempt to persuade folks to buy or sell securities is termed market abuse and is a criminal act and that brings me to the latest act of insanity by a Quindell (QPP) owning moron – the creation of the twitter account @tomwinifrith.  You will note that it has only one n and so is not me but you could easily be forgiven for making that mistake.

This account appeared over the weekend and I am naturally flattered that the photo chosen as an avatar – as you can see in the screen shot below - is of Colin Firth rather than Ray Winstone. So far it has issued just one tweet which has been retweeted by six other Quindell morons and reads:

Lse.co.uk – fools & bullies with a clown of a lawyer but NOT originators of market abuse

Okay none of you guessed correctly. My first lawyer’s letter of the year came from Lse.co.uk. Apparently I have damaged its good name and caused it distress. Yes, that is the website which each day carries at least 50 posts smearing me with all sorts of abuse and lies. Next up, Prince Andrew is going to give me a lecture for inappropriate behaviour because my wife is six years younger than I am.

I posted the screenshot below and asked in the article who at LSE was responsible for loading it because it carried bogus reports of broker buy notes on Quindell (QPP) and was thus market abuse. I tried to phone and email but no response. LSE.co.uk states that the data is loaded by Digital Look. Fine – someone at Digital Look has a few questions to answer. I am very glad that the FCA is looking into this.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 10 January

In today's podcast I refer to the excellent Black Swan 2015 review by Richard Poulden which you should all read. I cover the issue of how low the oil price could go but also what we as investors should assume that it will be. I touch on IGAS and Northern Petroleum (both shorts). And the I look at the issue of what constitutes market abuse in the Bulletin Board Moron community

Bearcast Range Resources Special - US sale shocker Peter Landau needs life ban from AIM

Range Resources (RRL) was telling its stockholders by unofficial channels  two years ago that its US assets cou;ld be sold for $150 million funding mammoth share buybacks. Today they were sold for $1.4 million. This Bearcast covers the role of Greg Smith in the range tragedy, questions the value of Range's Trinidad assets, points out how Pete Landau misledinvestors and calls on the FCA to investigate Landau for market abuse and to ban him as a director of AIM Casino listed companies. It covers the legal threats I received from him and the spineless approach of other publishers that caused me to set up ShareProphets.

If you feel that Landau misled you over the value of the US assets please write to [email protected] citing your evidence and demanding that they investigate him. 

If you were one of the Bulletin Board Morons who reported me to the FCA for market abuse in Red Flagging Range all the way down from 5.5p to today's 0.54p (susp) you can write to [email protected] and apologise. The Sheriff of AIM is vindicated again.

Open Letter to the FCA & AIM Regulation – Quindell and Market Abuse on 13 October 2014

Market abuse covers many sins but one is to give a misleading impression of the value of securities as a result of false statements.  Quindell had told investors that it would achieve cash breakeven in Q3 2014. In fact it managed to beat this target thanks to a number of covert measures which hid the true picture. This is market abuse (FCA) but also a breach of AIM Rules. I have therefore written to both the FCA and AIM Regulation and cc’d in the hapless chumps at Nomad Cenkos demanding an urgent investigation.  I write:


Dear Sirs.

Tom Winnifrith reported to the FCA by Quindell moron ff2345 – can all the morons please also report me?

I am shitting bricks. Not. It seems that the Bulletin Board Morons are again reporting me to the FCA for market abuse because of Monday’s Quindell (QPP) Presentation HERE. The morons forget that I made a formal request to the FCA to investigate me for market abuse over Quindell weeks ago – natch I have heard nothing. But for once I support the morons in their actions and would encourage all Quindell shareholders to report me and here’s why.

Tom Winnifrith, Quindell & market Abuse Update & reader Poll result

At the weekend I asked the FCA to investigate me for market abuse regarding Quindell as I reported here. Well what has happened so far?

Firstly I have reported Quindell (QPP) to both AIM Regulation and the FCA today for telling whoppers about the profits of Mobile Doctors and leading them to believe that a £140 million share buyback was on the way. There is more chance of me getting to shag Cheryl Cole (or whatever she is called until her next divorce) tonight than there is of such a buyback.

Our readers were polled at the weekend as to how the FCA would respond to my request. They said:

BearCast 18 October - Financial Crime on AIM, Tom Winnifrith reports himself to the FCA for market abuse on Quindell

An unusual bonus podcast from me today. In this bearcast I discuss the whole issue of lies and financial crime on the AIM Casino but also the abject failure of AIM Regulation and I will tomorrow be asking the FCA to formally investigate me for market abuse on Quindell. I hope that Rob Terry will also ask the FCA to investigate me.

The nuts and bolts are in today's shock Video HERE. Either I am making it up and am thus guilty of market abuse. Or it is true in which case Rob Terry and Quindell are guilty of wholesale lying and accounting fraud. The facts back me up. And so that is why I want the FCA to investigate me formally for market abuse. If it finds me not guilty as it will then it has no choice but to act against Quenron. As such I say bring it on. I want the formal investigation and I challenge Rob Terry to ask the FCA to conduct such an enquiry.

Dear FCA: please investigate whether I committed market abuse on 13th October regarding Quindell

This morning I have written to the FCA asking it to investigate whether the allegations I made on 13th October 2014 regarding Quindell PLC (QPP) constitute market abuse. The allegations are the most serious I can make, that Quenron has committed wholesale accounting fraud and has lied to investors via RNS.  If the allegations are not true I have committed market abuse. As it happens they are 100% verifiable and I have not seen one person show why they are not. That is because they are verifiably true. The video of my presentation making these allegations is HERE.  The letter to the FCA explains why I have made this request and reads:

An open Letter to AIM Regulation: Please Investigate Mirabaud Securities, Canaccord and Phorm PLC (again) – was there market abuse?

I am sure that AIM Regulation now knows full well who Phorm (PHRM) PLC are. But following my revelation’s earlier today HERE I have asked my good pals to investigate whether Phorm PLC but also Mirabaud Securities (broker) and Canaccord (Nomad) were guilty of market abuse in 2011 and 2012 or of extreme negligence or both or neither.

The letter follows.

Dear Sirs.

A formal Request to the FCA & AIM regulation regarding Quindell and Cenkos regarding the PT lie

The rules of AIM are pretty simple and are based on the underlying principle that you cannot tell a blatant lie to investors. To do so is arguably market abuse and it is certainly a breach of AIM rules. If the AIM Cesspit is to have any credibility those who break the rules must be punished and punished publicly. I have therefore written this morning to both the FCA and to AIM Regulation asking both to launch an urgent investigation into both Quindell PLC (QPP) and its Nomad Cenkos after today’s PT healthcare RNS farce/lie.

The letter follows.

Dear Sirs.

As a great supporter of the work you do to retain the high standing of the AIM casino I feel duty bound to bring to your attention the activities of Quindell PLC and its Nomad Cenkos. To issue statements via RNS or in an annual report which are not true

In Defence of Shorting not of market Abuse

Yesterday I posted a long defence of critical journalism, explaining why it is something that investors should welcome (though they rarely do). Today I move onto shorting which, I note, is one again something that some people want banned. They are wrong and this is why. 

I accept that those who short are not providing what one might term a “useful” function in society. They are not creating jobs. Instinctively one might think of them as parasites.  Their motive is pure greed. However shorting is risky. The most you can lose going long is 100% while your gains are in theory much greater. With shorting the reverse is true. And so it takes an odd sort of individual to sate his greed via shorting.  

Having said all of that

Quindell: An Open Letter sent to the FCA “Get off your arse and prosecute someone for market abuse”

Over the weekend yet another employee of the Financial Regulator, the FCA, was in touch asking to link up as he enjoyed my writings, found them most educational and thought we knew many “good people” in common. Cripes the TW Fan Club at the FCA is growing apace.  In view of that I have sent them an urgent request regarding Quindell Portfolio (QPP) as someone HAS to be prosecuted for market abuse and sent to prison.

Yesterday Gotham City published a 74 page dossier on Quindell. Gotham is short of the stock. Gotham makes allegations which are extreme and, if proven, would show that Rob Terry and senior Quindell execs are guilty of fraud and market abuse. At this stage I stress the words IF PROVEN.

With a market cap (before yesterday) of more than £2 billion the FCA cannot allow itself to sit on the sidelines.  There are only two possible outcomes here:

FCA backs Dan Levi ( Brokerman Dan) – will he now sue Sefton for libel?

On 29th January the Daily Telegraph ran a piece suggesting that my pal Brokerman Dan was short of Sefton Resources (SER) and that is why he was writing bearish pieces. The source of that story which was untrue was Alex Walters who acts for Sefton as its PR man. The journalist at the Telegraph has contemporaneous notes of the conversation. The paper has now withdrawn the article and apologised to Dan for its role in this i.e. being duped.

On February 25th Sefton announced that it was suing myself and Dan for legal action but also that it had received legal advice that we had breached the Financial Services and Markets Act of 2000 and that it had reported us to the FSA. Dan obtained the letter sent by Sefton’s lawyers Pinsent Masons on 14 January using a FOI request. It took him two minutes to respond and the FCA has now confirmed to Dan that the matter is closed – he has done nothing wrong. It was a spurious and malicious complaint against him (and also me).

I have also explained to the FSA (and to Pinsent Masons) why the compliant was spurious and frankly anyone with a basic understanding of the FSMA would know why it was spurious. As such, to suggest that we had breached the FSMA in a public release was damaging and defamatory. Sefton may regard it as part of a legitimate dirty tricks campaign but I am not sure anyone else would.

Sefton Resources and its agent (Alex Walters) have clearly committed not one but two acts of libel against Dan (also myself). I hope that Sefton will issue an RNS apologising in full to myself and Dan and I’d happily drop the matter there. But I am aware that Daniel is now considering suing Sefton for libel should an apology not be forthcoming.

I am reporting myself to the FSA/FCA to defend free speech from a firm of bully boy City lawyers

Apologies for the tardiness of this week’s column. Half term fun and games are partly to blame. But so is a bully boy letter from a well-known City law firm which is prompting me to report myself to the FSA/FCA to ask the regulator to investigate me for market abuse. I shall report myself at the weekend knowing full well that I have not breached the Financial Services Markets Act of 2000 but I want this clarified in order to protect free speech.

Let me explain what has gone on. My memory is crystal clear. I broke a news story on a company listed on the AIM Cesspit. My source was impeccable. The story was 95% correct and when the truth was finally dragged from the company in question I wrote an immediate follow up flagging the one error (i.e. a correction).  But also pointing out what an investment basket case this was. At no stage until this week did the company contact me. Indeed it declined even to return a phone call when I wanted to run one piece by it.

The company does not like me. And so this week I received a lawyers letter demanding that I remove the articles in their entirety and threatening me by saying that this is market abuse and that if I do not comply they may report me to the FCA for market abuse.  You will note the aim here is not to get a correction on the one small factual error but to get a hostile article (95% of which is verifiably correct) removed in its entirety. 

This is not about ensuring fair reporting it is an attack on free speech. It is the rich and powerful trying to suppress hostile or embarrassing material.
