The AIM Casino is a Cesspit Cesspit of Crooks and Crony Capitalists and is dying – I’m off to meet real snakes before I vomit

Yesterday evening I was doing a bit of frigana chopping at the Greek Hovel and I heard a rustling in the bush I was approaching. I know enough by now to realise what was making the noise and beat a hasty retreat. But the stench of corruption on AIM tells me where the real snakes operate. It is a cesspit for crooks and crony capitalists who systematically transfer wealth from the many (mug investors) to the few (themselves). I have had enough of this for one day and am heading back to the fields to face real snakes. They are less loathsome. There is a solution but the London Stock Exchange does nothing. It is guilty of abetting financial crime by its inaction.

The big daddy of fraud busting Sam Antar sends tweet to Quindell

Sam Antar was at the heart of the biggest fraud on Wall Street of the 1980s – he was FD of Crazy Eddies. But he plea bargained, escaped jail and has endeavoured to set amends ever since by expositing corporate fraud, accounting wrongdoing and by assisting the SEC in fraud busting. He is THE big daddy of fraud exposure, if he goes after someone it makes my efforts or those of Gotham City seem like those of kids in the park. And yesterday he tweeted to a certain well known AIM Casino listed British company.

Eric Sprott: Get Your Money ‘Out of Banks and into Something Tangible’ - the economy is STILL broken

Eric Sprott the founder of Sprott Asset Management is perhaps the best known resource investor on earth. He says that he now has 80% of his portfolio in precious metals because the economy is just in a very bad place. It is just that people do not realise it yet so shares, cash in the bank is duff money. Sprott says you should but gold NOW because “when people finally decide they want to buy gold, there probably won’t be any gold.”  So asked what he is buying and why Sprott said in a recent interview:

GOTCHA! Naibu - The bombshell revelation - surely the shares must be suspended NOW

I do hope that someone round at Daniel Stewart, Nomad and Broker to AIM listed China fraud Naibu (NBU) has learned to read Chinese since the crony capitalists FAILED to do adequate due diligence on this POS before it listed. Because I have a little press cutting for you chaps from 2008. If you are not too busy spending the £600,000 you have made in fees from Naibu in the past 18 months you need to read it and then resign at once as Nomad and broker and have the shares suspended. This is a bombshell.

iomart Group - takeover off, where now for the shares?

Commenting on the announcement of a bid approach for iomart Group plc (IOM) I concluded that ‘the price action suggests that shares in iomart would materially drop back on a takeover agreement not now being reached and, whilst the long-term investor may be content to hold, those with a shorter-term horizon should be cognisant that a financial interest here currently looks to effectively be a bet on whether or not a takeover can be agreed’. The following updates with the offer talks now terminated and the shares, having been over 280p, currently trading at 226p.

Winners & Losers from the Naibu fraud: Daniel Stewart & Shareholders

This is not my dynamite revelation, I merely set the scene…China fraud Naibu (NBU) floated on the AIM casino in May 2012 at 124p. The shares are now 19.5p. So UK shareholders have lost 5/6 of their cash in less than 18 months. So who are the winners from this farce? Well let me introduce to its Nomad and broker Daniel Stewart. This will appall you and perhaps explains why Daniel Cesspit (which also floated Quenron) is trying not to resign.

Daniel Stewart, Abchurch, AIM Regulation are you ready - Its a Gotcha on Naibu at 7 AM

I hope that Daniel Stewart and upper class twit PR buffoons Abchurch Communications have enjoyed spending the vast fees they have earned in assisting China fraud Naibu (NBU) to list on the AIM Cesspit. And I hope AIM Regulation are ready because at 7 AM the Sheriff of AIM will be breaking news which MUST result in a share suspension if the Casino is to retain any credibility. It is Gotcha time for these bad guys and then we can start moving onto Camkids (CAMK) and China Chaintek (CTEK). Oh.....

Naibu FRAUD watch Day 1: now on a PE of 0.46 and 132% upside in shares if Daniel Stewart believes its own SHIT – why wont it say buy?

Shares in Naibu (NBU) have slumped another 10% today to just 21.5p. The company is an out and out fraud and it is only a matter of time before the shares are suspended. If it had a smidgeon of integrity, its Nomad and Broker Daniel Stewart (which likes acting for China frauds on the AIM Casino and also listed Quenron) would resign. But it seems that the greedy ethics free crony capitalist bastards at Daniel Stewart would rather keep banking fat monthly retainers.

How to defraud investors and falsify accounts – Sam Antar,a man who lied about billions of dollars of fraud, explains

The most spectacular fraud of the 1980s in the USA was Crazy Eddie’s  - an electrical retailer. It was a fraud from start to finish and the FD was Sam Antar. He plea bargained and has since seen the light and become an amazing campaigner and exposer of corporate fraud. And he explains exactly how he engaged in mammoth fraud at Crazy’s.

No sane person should touch any AIM listed China stock with a bargepole

The recent passing of its interim dividend by Naibu (NBU), which would have involved an outlay of £600,000 against claimed profits of £20 million and claimed net cash of £30 million has prompted accusations of fraud and skull doggery at the Chinese sports shoemaker and put the spotlight on other China frauds that might be lurking on AIM.

African Potash - the legal case for victims of the fraud almost underway

Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.

You are hereby on notice as retail bubbles start to pop

Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.
