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.

Ouzo Time as Finablr shares are suspended in yet another not-fit-for-purpose FCA shambles. P45 for Andrew Bailey

You were warned and warned and warned again here on ShareProphets to get out of fully-listed Finablr (FIN) as it became clear to us that it was facing the same problems as NMC Health (NMC) which is already surely a zero and with which it shared much of the same senior management (until it was fired by NMC) and where accusations of fraud and theft now abound. Quite why the shares were not suspended weeks ago is a matter for our useless and not-fit-for-purpose FCA which, after all, is supposed to protect investors. This morning the shares were suspended, the CEO has walked, dodgy cheques have turned up and the company’s financial position is unclear (for that, read a zero for shareholders). It would be a mind-bending shock if it had not been so predictable, and it is a calamity.

As Finablr heads for zero, NMC now says it has found evidence leading to suspected fraud – and still the FCA won’t suspend Finablr!

This morning saw a first partial ‘fess-up by Finablr (FIN) and the shares, as covered by Tom Winnifrith, duly collapsed yet again. But on good day to bury bad news, NMC Health (NMC) ‘fessed up yet again, saying that evidence leading to suspected fraudulent behaviour has now been found. Well quelle surprise, given that we were told two days ago that it appeared that some proceeds from undisclosed £2.7 billion of borrowing may have been utilised for non-Group purposes. In other words, it had been stolen!

The threatening legal letter to Tom Winnifrith comes from ...The FCA ( I publish in full)

Over the past six years I have handed over details of numerous frauds to the FCA and they have been so utterly fecking useless that I have now just given up. The FCA is the Inspector Clouseau of financial crime busters. Now I know what they spend their time, and your taxes, sending threatening letters to journalists whose main job is fraud busting! The - name redacted - letter is below.

Tom Winnifrith BearCast Special: Quindell fallout 2 - the Dismal serial failure of AIM Regulation

According to The Times today, the Sheriff of AIM has for the past five years been a fellow called Marcus Stuttard - no offence, phoney Sheriff, but you are useless. You are Inspector Clouseau and your team are the Keystone Cops. You could not spot a felon if I took you on a guided tour of Rob Terry's next home, that is to say Wormwood Scrubs. Your inaction against miscreant Nomads and companies that tell lies and commit fraud is legendary across the globe. That is why the AIM casino is viewed as such a joke. In this podcast I look at how and why Mr Stuttard and his team have failed us all so badly and why they are simply not fit for purpose.
