The Maldives and Amilla – paradise for a fraudster

 

Paradise for Carl Freer – Hell for his Victims

Carl Freer is packing his bags for his next break at Amilla Fushi – located in the Maldives.  This  is a little piece of paradise where the rich and famous go to relax and have fun.

Carl Freer has worked his magic and befriended Amilla Fushi’s Chairman, Michael Flynn and its Manager, Mark Hehir as well as most of the senior Staff. With his well rehearsed cordiality Carl Freer swans into the Resort where he is viewed as a well liked and respected Guest due to the frequency of his visits.

Surrounded by the beautiful and tranquil environment, and with the fawning support of duped Staff, the props are in place.  The emboldened Carl Freer sets about finding his new “Investors”.

Trust Me. I’m a Saint. I just happen to carry around a pack of information to prove it . . .

Most people pack their holiday bags to relax – but not Carl Freer.   His laptop is pre-loaded with presentations of the ‘next big thing,’ along with the most important document – his version of due diligence on himself.

In the restaurants he orders food and wine without regard for the price.  The best of the best, cooked to his own standard, no butter, no oil. Over long evenings of lighthearted conversations with other Guests he drops hints of his successes and his wealth.  He prepares the Amilia’s Guests  by confessing that he has enemies and these enemies are jealous of his talents and his successful life.  Stories pour from his lips like sweet syrup with a chorus of name dropping . . . Bill and Hilary Clinton, Michael Milkin, Sting, Leonardo Di Caprio, David Beckham and Paris Hilton will all play their roles in his tales of success.  By the end his listeners will be seduced – he has delivered the perfect narrative and convinced one and all that they have found their perfect friend.  One of the most trustworthy and genuine people in the world, a gifted mind who will share his contacts and his success.  During the day you often see him high-fiving bartender friend SK while enjoying a waterpipe and vodka-based cocktail.  With a warm smile he’s an easy to get on with guy, approachable and friendly – what’s not to like.

Carl Freer – A Liar and a Cheat.

What the Amilla Fushi Guests are unaware of is that when Carl Freer goes on holiday he is there to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, and his primary target is the rich as they may be gullible enough in their relaxed state of mind to unquestionably believe him whilst he is in full flow.  In order to support his narrative Carl Freer carries his own due diligence pack – a compilation of falsehoods and obfuscations designed to confound and confuse those who unearth less than savoury details about the man who just presented himself as their personal saviour.

Carl Freer rails against what he calls “black PR” or “Internet character assassination”.  He claims he is being attacked by people who misrepresent facts, who are jealous of him, who just want to see him fail.

My Mommy Says It Was All A Big Misunderstanding and I Shouldn’t Have Been Convicted.

In his “due diligence pack” Carl Freer has a letter from his mother.  It claims that his first conviction was all a misunderstanding about a student loan.  It was a misdemeanour.  He shows it to people with great pathos on his face – willing them to believe him.  And the gullible do.

The fact is that fraud is not a misdemeanour – it is a crime.  His crime has nothing to do with a student loan.  The judge spelled out very clearly the details of the crime and adjudicated that Carl Freer was guilty of a criminal act.

Why would anyone accept the alleged letter of a mother – who would protect and forgive her son regardless – when this link and this link show the real story of the event as reported in the national papers in Sweden at the time.  It had nothing too to with a student loan  – it was just straight forward criminality.

Newspapers at the time reported on the case – and fact is Carl Freer wrote the letter himself

The gullible guests, already semi-bewitched, are often too spellbound by Carl Freer to realise that it is not the Internet that has assassinated his character.  There are 3 High Court Judges – in Sweden, Germany and France – each of whom, independently of the others, applying due process and looking only at the facts, adjudicated him to be a Criminal.   That is what defines his character.

The Court of Cassation ruled that Carl Freer MUST go to jail

On top of that there is a ruling from the Court of Cassation in France –  the country’s highest appeals court – wherein a panel of judges reviewed his case and determined that, based on the evidence, he is a criminal and MUST go to jail.  Please take the time to read that ruling here.  The translation was done by the French court and it details Carl Freer’s criminal activities, organised crime and Mafia connections, media connections and other salient facts about this would be saviour.

Interestingly, Carl Freer’s “Due Diligence Pack” says nothing about his outstanding arrest warrant – or anything about the many judgements against him.

Instead, it attempts to misdirect people.  For example, by claiming that he was once referenced as the 698th Richest Person in the World with a net worth of US$1.1 billion – achieved by the age of 35.  This would be a marvellous achievement if true – you may note the lack of detail in the reference he provides.  This reference is supposedly provided by Forbes, the list actually says the collective net worth of the World’s 691 billionaires is $2.2 trillion.  There were only 691 billionaires on the 2005 list not 698 as CF claims.  Here is a link and there is no Carl Freer on that list.  To make doubly sure you could check the 2006 list or the 2004 list or even better still contact Forbes, the Author of the 2005 billionaire list, and they will confirm that it only ran to 691.

Carl Freer is a convicted fraudster.  He has been tried and found to be a criminal by a panel of judges in the highest court in France, and by 3 other courts.  He lies about his wealth – something that he was doing in his teens as described in the very first judgement against him.

With the actual evidence available, why would anyone believe the other “evidence” in his “due diligence pack?”

After all he has a history for exaggerated claims.  He states that the UK Liquidators of Gizmondo Europe Limited sold the intellectual property of the company to him (Carl Freer), and even boasts about the press release, issued on 13th May 2008, and asks the reader to accept this as a complete story.

What he fails to disclose is the money given to the Liquidators came directly from the largest fraud in Danish history – the IT Factory fraud.

The truth is the truth.  It is an exact thing – there cannot be variations or versions of the truth.

You are invited to contact Mark Fry of Begbies Traynor, the Liquidator for Gizmondo Europe Limited.  They hold a bankruptcy demand against Carl Freer for US$6 million – which he has failed to pay – for the so-called sale of intellectual property as mentioned in the press release he uses in his “due diligence pack.”  (Mark Fry contact details Call: 020 7516 1500 Email: mark.fry@begbies-traynor.com)

The IT Factory Liquidator is Boris Frederiksen and he has an active investigation into Carl Freer.  He can be contacted on: +45 72 30 72 22 or bor@kammeradvokaten.dk or via the contact page at www.kammeradvokaten.com.

Another red herring that amuses us is how he spends a great deal of time highlighting the “defamation” he suffered at the hands of the Law Firm Patton Boggs.  We have even heard tales that his claim for five hundred million, when settled, will go straight to charities as he wants no personal benefit.  How laudable – he surely picks up a few points to support his halo which such a statement.  The sticky problem is that the settlement was a walkaway as Patton Boggs also had a substantial counter claim so not one single dollar found its way to the Charity.

The “due diligence pack” goes on to detail other similarly irrelevant events.

The bottom line is that if Carl Freer honestly disclosed:-

that he had been arrested in 5 countries,

convicted for fraud in 3 countries,

has an outstanding warrant for his arrest with a 2 year prison term awaiting him,

has defrauded previous investors of hundreds of millions,

has resoundingly failed in every endeavour,

has tens of millions in judgements against him, (See the top 2 entries in 2014 which alone total $M3+)

Swedish Mafia – Carl Freer. He is mentioned at least 20 times.

still maintains links to the Mafia who are beneficiaries in his scams,

would Guests at the Amilla queue up to invest in him and his companies?

The most damaging things done to his character have been all the criminal activity, the fraud, the theft, the violence, the organised crime, the cheating, the lies.  That is what defines his character.  People pointing out the truth about him are not guilty of assassinating his character.

To assassinate Carl Freer’s character you would have to say that he was honest, clean living, cared for others, was as good as his word, honourable, never cheated anyone – and there is no one saying that on the Internet at all (except for Carl Freer himself).

As for the numerous businesses he says he has has sold, ask for a list, the price paid and if they are still in existence now.  Again if he is so successful ask for half a dozen investors to provide references.  Should be easy – if it is real.

So whilst you are sitting on the beach or swimming in the pool be aware that danger lurks – there really is a malevolent force at the Maldives.

He also claims that the FBI and SEC have not investigated him.  We would like to comment on this but unfortunately there are tipping off rules in America and we cannot make any comment.

We can however mention the management for the resort, now armed with the above information, and ask what action are they going to take to safeguard the interests of their guests –  or are they ok with having fraudsters and gangster commingling with their quests?

It may be in their best interests to ensure that Carl Freer’s bellowing laughter that echoes through the restaurants and bars is never heard there again.

Condemned, Convicted and Sentenced to 2 Years in Jail by the Highest Court in France – Carl Freer is a Wanted Criminal – He Has Been On The Run For 16 Years – Scamming All The Time

Carl Freer Jail is a common search query on this site. And Yes, he has an unserved 2 year jail sentence, an outstanding Euro 50,000 fine and an active arrest warrant in France.

Carl Freer in FranceHe had hoped, in 2012, that he could appeal his conviction of a decade earlier and stop running – but, on examining the case, the highest court in France – the Court of Cassation – the Supreme Court of France –  the final appeal court for all criminal matters – determined that he must go to jail.  

Carl Freer has actually been on the run since at least 2001 when the Germans first charged him for fraud.  He had been, and some say he still is, involved with organised crime.

Carl Freer Jail
The Court of Cassation ruled that Carl Freer MUST go to jail

The Court of Cassation’s ruling on Carl Freer  is also excerpted and linked below, after we have provided sufficient background information to fully understand it..

Before reading it we advise that one should have a concise, but clear, overview of Carl Freer.

Carl Freer is not a petty criminal. He is a career criminal. He commits fraud and has been doing so relentlessly for at least the past 25 years.

It astonishes us that people who are supposed to do due diligence on him seem to only find the puff PR he publishes about himself, and not the arrests, court cases, and judgements that courts and officials publish about him.

This is not confined to greedy, gullible, investors – but includes official bodies that have detailed KYC (Know Your Customer) procedures in place as legal requirements before they may engage with him.  How is it that they miss all the actual facts about Carl Freer – all of which can be easily located with just a modicum of effort?

How does Withers Khattarwong Solicitors fail to spot the fact that he gave them an old address in their KYC, let alone fail to discover the extent of his criminal record?  They clearly chose not to make any enquires, or do any internet searches and challenge the client with the findings.  Similar ineptitude has cost other law firms dearly.

How does the DBS Bank fail to identify Carl Freer as a convicted fraudster in their KYC?   How do they determine it is correct to give him bank accounts enabling him to open 10 companies in Singapore?

How does someone who has been arrested in 5 countries; who has three criminal convictions; who is on the run; who has millions in judgements against him ever enter Singapore. . .  let alone get a work pass and permanent residency?  What is the point of having a criminal code if not to curtail the activities of people like Carl Freer?

Like all criminals, Carl Freer does the same things over and over.  It is a repeating pattern.  It is not difficult therefore to predict the outcome of any of his ‘ventures.’   It needs no Artificial Intelligence or assistance.  It is hallucinatory to think that his new businesses have legitimate goals, or that he has reformed.

For Those Unable to Find the Facts on Carl Freer, Here is A Very Brief Summary of His Easily Discovered Past and Why He Has Been Ordered To Jail

Carl Freer started his criminal activity in Sweden.  As a teenager he faked his parents’ signatures and managed to fraudulently obtain a loan.  He then scammed the bank, using fake checks, for tens of thousands of dollars.  He was arrested and convicted – sentenced to 18 months probation and fined EUR 200,000.

He claimed it was all a misunderstanding.  He also claimed he was a Humanitarian doing charitable work as evidence of his good character.  This article links to all relevant media and covers how he scammed a lawyer into setting up a Foundation for nothing – a foundation that does not actually exist.

Carl Freer was next arrested in Spain.  He had stolen some exotic cars in Germany and taken them to Spain where he set up a business selling exotic cars.   He was caught and arrested.

He skipped bail and fled to France, where he set up a new business  – selling stolen exotic cars.  Once again he was caught and arrested.

Carl Freer skipped bail and fled to the UK, where he once again set up a new business – selling stolen exotic cars.

He was arrested again after Interpol tracked him down on an international arrest warrant issued by Germany – who wanted him for stealing exotic cars.

Carl Freer had been doing his stolen car trafficking under the false name of Brian Littlejohn.

Carl Freer challenged the extradition attempt, claiming that it was all a misunderstanding.

He had not stolen the cars, he had simply not paid for them because he thought they were already stolen.  Clearly, In his mind, something twice stolen equals legitimate ownership.

Carl Freer also defended himself at that time by claiming that not only was it all misunderstanding, but he was a Humanitarian and Philanthropist as evidenced by the fact that he was a Trustee of the prestigious King’s Medical Research Trust.  As we have extensively covered that was a scam and is a complete lie.

While having to report to the British Police weekly, Carl Freer decided to give up the stolen car trafficking and start a high tech business instead –  Gizmondo.

The bright idea behind Gizmondo is that it was a tracking device – one that kids would willingly have with them as they could play games and do other things on it.    Some have said that it was inspired by the tracking device that Carl Freer was forced to wear while under judicial supervision.

Carl Freer Jail in Dubai next?
Carl Freer – Consumate ConMan scammed the PLO but failed to scam Dubai – so he his trying again.

It was with the Gizmondo that he scammed the PLO out of their $20 Million, and a lot of other people too.  He forged documents, claimed endorsement from  Microsoft, lied and cheated and scammed.   He claims to have amassed a billion dollars in investments.  That was 2005.

Once he had all the investor’s money, and had launched his ‘product’ in an extravagant event accompanied by exotic cars, he siphoned off many millions, resigned from the company and took off for the USA.  (Video.  7 Part article)

As he fled for the USA, Carl Freer stole several exotic cars which he took with him.

Support letter from the CEO of his company that claims Carl Freer is a British National – outright lie.

He also lied to the US authorities to get a visa.  He claimed he had never been arrested, had no criminal record, was a British national, and gave his car dealership – the one he was arrested for selling stolen cars from in France – as an example of his fine business skills that would be put to use in America.  (New evidence – letter in support of his Visa Application.)

Carl Freer moved around the USA, creating new scams, incorporating new companies, and stealing more money.

Concurrently he also built up his ‘humanitarian and philanthropical portfolio’ with further lies and deception.  He scammed Georgia Tech University and Canterbury University into endorsing him.

When it would get too hot in an area he would just move to another – leaving scammed people and law suits in his wake.

Expensive, usually stolen, cars are a constant accompaniment in Carl Freer’s life.

After being arrested in Los Angeles as a consequence the world famous incident involving the destruction of a Ferrari Enzo, it was time to move on.

Carl Freer had incorporated over twenty companies, had scammed thousands of people people and many big names – Ogilvie, IBM, Microsoft, MTV, Georgia Tech and others.

America had been good to him.  But . . .

. . . his defence of, “It was all a big misunderstanding” and, “I’m a  humanitarian and and philanthropist” was not really working all that well – mostly because of his insane decision to falsely add, “I’m a  duly appointed, legitimate, Federal Agent” to his “good guy” portfolio.

Humanitarian, Philanthropist, Dept of Homeland Security Agent – all round good guy (not)

He had attracted the attention of law enforcement by using that fake badge to buy an arsenal – it was definitely time to move on.  He feared jail.

His next major stop was Singapore where once again he lied to get a work pass and residency.

Convicted criminals are denied entry to Singapore – and Carl Freer is not only a convicted criminal, but a criminal with a large backlog of convictions waiting to catch up with him.

And, as covered above, he lied to get bank accounts so he could set up companies as Director or shareholder part of his next big scams – Uniqorn Lab PTE Ltd, Shop on Mobile PTE Ltd, Wow Messenger PTE Ltd, Kaching Mobile PTE Ltd, Unicorn 7 PTE Ltd, Watstock PTE Ltd, Watpetrol PTE Ltd, Watopidia PTE Ltd, Aluminaid PTE Ltd and Iqnect PTE Ltd.

Carl Freer is currently working on launching Watstock in Dubai – an artificial intelligence product that will predict the stock market with never before seen accuracy.  Or so he says.  We have issued a Scam Alert.

Once again he is claiming alliances and endorsement with a major university,  the leading Professor in AI, and IBM.  All lies.

And once again he is adding content to his fake ‘humanitarian and philanthropist portfolio’.  The internet is now awash with pictures of impoverished African children all waving and cheering and thanking Carl Freer – the only downside being that those are purchased stock images that have no basis in reality.  No underprivileged child has ever benefited from Carl Freer’s benevolence.  He hates the ‘underclasses’ and his only interaction with them is to use them for his personal gain.

Predicting the future is as old as the hills and has been peddled since the dawn of Man.  Back then it was bird entrails, tea leaves,  oracles and crystal balls – now it is Carl Freer and Watstock.  Maybe the Banks and the Authorities can predict his future.  All it requires is a little intelligence and enough balls to act within the framework of the law.

Like all Carl Freer scams, this promises incredible riches to those gullible enough to invest with a serial fraudster and Mafia linked criminal.

The French Court of Cassation sees right through Carl Freer’s Lies and Orders Him To Jail

Here are some snippets from the French Court of Cassation.  You can read the whole thing in French, or in English as provided by the Court.

Carl Freer is referred to as Mr Carl X.  Or Mr X.  If you have read the German Judgement you will recognise Carl X as Carl Freer.  (Z is Brian Littlejohn – the alias he used and the name of an earlier landlord – Carl Freer kept using the address).

Carl Freer had appealed his prior conviction.  After examining the facts, the Court of Cassation determined that the sentence of 2 years imprisonment, and the fine of EUR 50,000, were correct and ordered the continuation of the arrest warrant.  They said he must go to jail.

Text has been highlighted by us – otherwise it is exactly as provided by the Court.

That it follows from the proceedings that Mr X. was domiciled in France and that he had fled when he was wanted and that he was at the same time sought by the German authorities who issued a warrant for his arrest on 20 April 2001 and that he was subsequently arrested in Great Britain on 7 June 2001 and placed under judicial supervision. . . 

Whereas, accordingly, the warrant of arrest for Mr X. of 20 March 2002, issued in accordance with Article 123 of the Code of Criminal Procedure as regards the identity of the person, Article 131 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, validly allowed the latter to be referred to the court, the title remaining otherwise enforceable after the order for reference; That the investigating judge can not be criticized for having sought to defeat the rights of the defense by issuing an arrest warrant for serious acts of organized crime . . .

Whereas it appears from the judgment under appeal and from the pleadings that the investigating judge, having before him facts relating to international traffic in stolen vehicles, issued an arrest warrant against Mr X;

In the present case, in order to reject the objection based on a breach of that principle, the judgment under appeal holds that the accused was convicted in Germany for fraud and not for concealment

In that the confirmatory judgment under appeal declared Mr X. guilty of breach of trust and sentenced him to two years’ imprisonment and a fine of EUR 50 000;

On the grounds that it appears from the German proceedings that Mr. X. stated, at the time of the execution of the request for extradition from the German authorities, that he had sold nine vehicles under the coercion of the Mafia, that he was afraid of reprisals and that he had come to Great Britain in order to protect himself and his family; whereas it is not disputed that the four Porsche vehicles referred to being sold in France by Mr. X., manager of Well Com Motors, and that these vehicles were stolen, that Mr. X . can not validly, in order to prove his good faith, rank with the other professionals. Even when upstream of the traffic and in contact with the source of this traffic, the fact that for a luxury car sales professional who operated Well Com Motors under the false name Z For which it is not justified in any way, to sell repeatedly, In the same stroke of time, the vehicles stolen and then fleeing, abandoning his company and his domicile, testify to his complete bad faith; That the two testimonies from which it relies, drawn from the German proceedings, of which an incomplete copy is produced, no examination of the accused which is in the file contrary to what was announced in the letter of 4 November 2010 of the Council, are not of a nature To contradict this observation in a mafia context that he himself described; That the offense of concealment is constituted in all its elements, material and intentional;

SUMMARY

Carl Freer is an incorrigible criminal.  He has been at it for years.

His Modus Operandi is to come up with a great sounding idea that, if it were executable would in fact be lucrative.  He then claims alliances and endorsements from leading brands in that sector, and forges documents to support his hype.  He stops at nothing.  He becomes people’s best friend to get their money out of them.

His overriding intention is to attract and steal money – he cares nothing for the idea or concept he is selling, no matter his apparent enthusiasm for it.  Carl Freer is very persuasive and smooth, and people become bewitched.

His criminal past constancy haunts him, and so while building up a scam Carl Freer frantically tries to create an illusion of being a decent human being.  He tells lies and invents things he thinks people will like to hear.  In truth he does not give a damn about any of that – just as he does not care about the law, about fair play, about his family, about his ‘friends’.  Do you really think he cares about  you?

Snake Oil salesmen have been around for years, as have fortune tellers.  Some people just want to put their faith in something other than their own common sense, and so those businesses will always be with us.

That said – this is one charlatan you should avoid, or immediately disengage from.  He means you no good.

Carl Freer Scam – How Low Can You Go?

Carl Freer  shrugs off his early arrests and criminal conviction with a dismissive one liner –  That scam was a small student loan and it was just a misunderstanding.  

Well – not really.  That’s not how the police saw it, that is not how the bank saw it, that’s not how the judge saw it, and that is not how it was reported 11 years ago in the Swedish media.

The report below, which we have translated snippets from for you, lays it out pretty clearly.  

But before we get to that there’s this other small matter to address.  It is touched on briefly at the very bottom of the translated article.

I can’t continue – I have a personal tragedy – I can’t pay you – MY FATHER JUST DIED!

My Father Just Died

The truth is his father had not died.  His father was alive and well.  He lived another 10 years in fact – eventually dying, on 4 May 2011. 

This Carl Freer scam wherein he claimed his father had died, was to con a lawyer out of his legal fees in setting up a philanthropic Foundation.  Carl of course used the “Foundation” (he had the paperwork to “prove” it) to lend himself an air of credibility and wealth

Remember how the Kings Medical Research Trust was scammed?  That Carl Freer scam promised the multi-million dollar donation – they were going to put him on the board – preparing to change the letterhead – he never paid them a penny – he stated in SEC documents the trustee appointment – evidence of what a great philanthropist he is.  Similar to the scams he pulled on Georgia Tech University and on Canterbury University.

In 2001 media reports say Carl Freer engaged a lawyer to set up a Foundation.  This Foundation was called “Earth Matters Foundation” and had the purpose of conserving endangered animal and plant species.  It was to be financed to the tune of  SEK 201 million – (USD 22 Million in today’s money – worth a lot more than 11 years ago).

The lawyer drew up all the paperwork in preparation for filing, but just before actually filing it Carl Freer pulled out, claiming he could not continue as his father had just died.

The lawyer, falling for the lie, never received a penny for his work.  However, as explained above, this Carl Freer scam benefited Carl handsomely. 

Think about this – If Carl Freer lies about his father’s death to scam a lawyer out of his payment, is there anyone who should believe anything he says?  Carl Freer lies.  It’s documented in media reports – it’s documented in court judgements – it’s documented in two convictions for fraud – it’s documented in SEC filings.

Believing in him is your call.  All we can do is help provide you with some facts.  Read the article below – we have provided the Swedish in case you have some better translation mechanism than Google translate, and an interpretation in bold.  (We have left the typos, strange words and gobbledygook as provided by Google – the jist of the article is still there).

Old Articles in the Swedish Media Show That Carl Freer was a Criminal From an Early Age

Swedish Media Report on his Crimes and Conviction

En vårdag 1988 kommer en trevlig ung man in på ett bankkontor i Stockholm. Han har ansökt om ett lån och visar nu upp ett intyg på att hans föräldrar ska ha gått i borgen. Men föräldrarnas signaturer har mannen, 18-årige Carl Freer, skrivit själv.

A spring day 1988, a nice young man comes to a bank office in Stockholm. He has applied for a loan and now shows a certificate that his parents should have gone to the castle. But the parents’ signatures have the man, 18-year-old Carl Freer, written himself.

In this Carl Freer scam he forged his parents signature and fraudulently obtained a loan.

Rätta artikel Förfalskningen avslöjas några månader senare när Carl Freer inte kan betala tillbaka lånet, som är på 31 000 kronor. Då uppdagas även att Freer lyckats lura banken, dåvarande SE-banken, på ytterligare 220 000 kronor. Dels har han löst in engelska checkar som saknat täckning, dels har han köpt varor på kredit trots att han är pank.

The fake is revealed a few months later when Carl Freer can not repay the loan, which amounts to SEK 31,000. Then it is also discovered that Freer managed to trick the bank, then the SE bank, into an additional 220,000 kronor. First, he has loosened English checks that lacked coverage, and he has bought goods on credit even though he is a pank.

It is discovered that Carl Freer has scammed the bank out of SEK 220,000 using fake English checks.  So much for it being a small student loan – he is forging and stealing.

More Reports on Carl Freer Criminal Activity and Convictions

SE-bankens polisanmälan blir den första i en lång rad bedrägerianmälningar mot Carl Freer – en av männen bakom det numera kraschade brittiska spelbolaget Gizmondo Ltd. Men bankens anmälan är unik: Den är den enda som hittills lett till åtal och fällande dom. I övriga fall har utredningarna gått i stå.

The SE Bank’s police report will be the first in a series of fraud reports against Carl Freer – one of the men behind the now-crashed British gaming company Gizmondo Ltd. But the bank’s notification is unique: it is the only one that has so far led to prosecution and conviction. In other cases, investigations have been discontinued.

While Carl has often escaped justice for other criminal activity, the bank’s case against him resulted in prosecution and conviction. 

ANNONS: Men då, i slutet av 1980-talet, fälls Carl Freer för grovt bedrägeri. Stockholms tingsrätt vill egentligen döma honom till fängelse. Men på grund av hans låga ålder stannar rätten vid villkorlig dom.

I rätten hävdade Freer att han använt bankens pengar för att försöka bygga upp en klädfirma och att han ”blivit helt besatt av tanken på sin blivande roll som företagsledare”.

But then, at the end of the 1980s, Carl Freer fails for gross fraud Stockholm District Court really wants to judge him in prison. But because of his low age, the court will stay on conditional judgment. Freer claimed that he used the bank’s money to try to build a clothing company and “he was completely obsessed with the idea of his future role as business leader.”

He claimed he used the Bank’s money to set up a clothing line to fulfil his dream of becoming a business icon.  Carl’s smooth tongue and young age keep him out of prison.

Klädaffärerna blev det aldrig någonting av. Men drömmen om ett eget företagsimperium lever vidare. Under de kommande åren dyker Carl Freers namn upp i ett femtontal olika aktiebolag inom vitt skilda branscher. Ett bolag ska handla med mobiltelefoner, ett annat med entreprenadmaskiner, ett tredje med livsmedel. Men bolagen blir inte långlivade, utan hamnar i rask takt på obestånd och begärs i konkurs.

The clothing stores never became anything. But the dream of a company’s own empire lives on. In the coming years, Carl Freer’s name appears in a fifteen different companies in widely different industries. One company is dealing with mobile phones, another with construction machinery, a third with food. However, the companies do not become persistent, but at a rapid pace on insolvencies and are called for bankruptcy.

Carl tells people he is a great businessman but despite many attempts, and millions in investments, the only thing one can count on with Carl Freer is that the venture will probably end in disaster for everyone but him. (Carl is still under the delusion that he is a great businessman – see this boast he posted about himself a few days ago.)    

I ungefär samma takt kommer drabbade leverantörer och andra till polisen för att anmäla Carl Freer. Anklagelserna gäller allt från att Freer ska ha köpt varor på kredit utan att betala och hyrt saker som aldrig lämnats tillbaka till att han gjort affärer i andras namn.

Ett av många misstänkta kreditbedrägerier ska ha skett i en charkuteributik i Eskilstuna.

– Freer hade tagit över firman och stod själv och sålde kött för glatta livet medan räkningarna samlades på hög. När det till slut blev problem hänvisade han till de personer som satt i styrelsen, men de var ju bara målvakter, säger en källa.

At about the same rate, victims and others come to the police to report Carl Freer. The allegations relate to the fact that Freer has bought goods on credit without paying and hiring items that have never been returned to trading in the name of others. One of many suspected credit fraud should have taken place in a car dealership in Eskilstuna. “Freer had taken over the company and stood himself and sold meat for smooth life while the bills gathered high. When it eventually became a problem, he referred to the people who were in the board, but they were only goalkeepers, says a source.

There are victims all around Carl Freer.   Credit card fraud – operates under false names – unpaid bills and loans – takes care of himself and everyone else be damned – blames anyone but himself.  (Remember Gizmodo)

Trots ett dussintal polisanmälningar mellan 1994 och 1996 togs Carl Freer inte ens in på förhör. Den enkla förklaringen var att polisen inte lyckades hitta honom. Enligt folkbokföringen skulle Freer bo på en flott adress på Östermalm i Stockholm. Men när polisen knackade på var han borta. DN:s genomgång visar att polisen sällan lagt ner några större resurser på fallen.

– Vid ett tillfälle försökte man nog ta ett samlat grepp. Men eftersom det inte gick att få tag på karl’n ledde det ingen vart, berättar en polisman.

Despite a dozen police reports between 1994 and 1996, Carl Freer did not even interrogate. The simple explanation was that the police failed to find him. According to the public records, Freer would have a great address at Östermalm in Stockholm. But when the police knocked on, he was gone. DN’s review shows that the police rarely put down any major resources on the cases. “At one point, one would try to take an overall approach. But because it was impossible to get hold of the man, there was no one, says a policeman.

Police, with not enough resources, allow a dozen police reports to accumulate in 2 years while Carl Freer continues his scamming undaunted – for the time being.

Nästa gång Carl Freers namn dök upp i en polisutredning var 1997 i spanska Marbella, där han öppnat bilfirma. Enligt polisen fanns det oklarheter kring de bilar han sålde och han greps för ”olaga bilhandel”. Men när Freer släpptes i avvaktan på åtal passade han på att fly. Till Nice på Franska rivieran, där han startade bolaget ”Well Com Motors”.

Här upprepades historien. Två lyxiga Mercor som Freer sålt till en bilhandlare i Dalarna visade sig vara stulna i Tyskland. Dalmasen åtalades för grovt häleri, men Freer hann slå igen butiken och fly ännu en gång. Nu till England.

Next time, Carl Freer’s name appeared in a police investigation is in 1997 in Spanish Marbella, where he opened a car company. According to the police, there were uncertainties about the cars he sold and he was arrested for “illegal car dealership”. But when Freer was released pending prosecution, he fought to fly. To Nice on the French Riviera, where he started the company “Well Com Motors”. Here the story was repeated. Two luxury Mercors like Freer sold to a car dealer in Dalarna proved to be stolen in Germany. Dalmasen was charged with gross assault, but Freer hit him again and flew once more. Now to England.

1n 1997 Carl Freer is in Spain selling stolen cars – where he is arrested.  While on bail Carl fled to France where he did exactly the same thing again.  When caught again he fled again – to England this time – where he does the same thing again.

Även nu fortsatte bilaffärerna. Men för säkerhets skull uppträdde Carl Freer under det falska namner ”Eric Jonsson”. Bluffen avslöjades dock när han greps för häleri på begäran av tysk polis. Han klarade sig med en hårsmån från att utlämnas till Tyskland. Men efter det blev det inga fler bilaffärer.

Flera personer som korsat Carl Freers väg vittnar om en smart och charmig person med fantastisk övertalningsförmåga.

– Han ger intryck av att vara en snäll och vänlig själ som vill väl. Men tyvärr går det nästan alltid snett, säger en källa.

Even now, the car business continued. But for safety,Carl Freer performed under the fake names “Eric Jonsson”. The Bluffen, however, was revealed when arrested for detention at the request of a German police. He coped with a hair loss from being handed over to Germany. But after that there were no more car deals. Several people crossing Carl Freer’s road testify to a smart and charming person with amazing persuasiveness. – He gives the impression of being a kind and kind soul who wants to. But unfortunately, it is almost always obscure, says a source.

In England he continued with the same car business – but under a false name – until arrested at the behest of the German Police.  He just managed to avoid being extradited.

Swedish Girls – Are They Happy Because Carl Was Arrested Again – Or Are They Just Having Fun

En person som gått på en riktig mina är en advokat i Västsverige. Under 2001 lade han ner stort arbete på att bilda en stiftelse på uppdrag av Freer alias Eric Jonsson. Stiftelsen skulle heta ”Earth Matters Foundation” och ha som syfte att bevara hotade djur- och växtarter. Kapitalet skulle, enligt Freer, uppgå till 201 miljoner kronor och finnas i en schweizisk bank.

– Allt såg mycket trovärdigt ut och vi hade flera möten i England. Men det blev alltid strul när det kom till mitt arvode, säger advokaten.

A person who has gone true is a lawyer in western Sweden. In 2001 he put down a lot of work on establishing a foundation commissioned by Freer alias Eric Jonsson. The foundation should be called the “Earth Matters Foundation” and aim to conserve endangered animal and plant species. According to Freer, the capital would amount to SEK 201 million and be in a Swiss bank. 

“Everything looked very credible and we had several meetings in England. But it always became strange when it came to my fee,” said the lawyer.

In 2001 he engaged a lawyer to set up a well-funded Foundation whose altruistic aim was to conserve endangered animals and plants – as you know this was a scam.

Efter ett tag avbröt Carl Freer oväntat samarbetet med hänvisning till att hans pappa skulle ha insjuknat och dött. Advokaten fick inte ett öre och stiftelsen kom aldrig att registreras. Däremot användeFreer i andra affärssammanhang de handlingar som advokaten upprättat för att ge sken av att vara förmögen.

After a while, Carl Freer discontinued the cooperation with reference to his father’s death and death. The lawyer did not get a penny and the foundation never got registered. On the other hand, in other business situations, use the documents that the lawyer has established to give effect to being wealthy.

Carl uses the scam Foundation to further his own ends, while claiming his father died to terminate the relationship with the lawyer.

Enda gången som Carl Freer, såvitt känt, jobbat för någon annan var då han anställdes som restaurangchef för nattklubben The Copy vid Stureplan i början av 1990-talet. Redan efter några månader fick Freer dock sparken. Skälet: han hade gått till Östermalmshallen och köpt ostron för dyra pengar. Men när det inte fanns någon efterfrågan från gästerna satte Freer själv i sig de exklusiva skaldjuren.

– Det blev spiken i kistan för hans del. Det gick inte att ha den standarden på personalmaten, berättar en person med god insyn i The Copy.

The only time Carl Freer, as known, worked for someone else was when he was employed as restaurant manager for the nightclub The Copy at Stureplan in the early 1990s. Even after a few months, Freer got fired. The reason: he had gone to Östermalmshallen and bought oysters for expensive money. But when there was no demand from the guests, Freer himself put the exclusive shellfish. – It became the nail in the coffin for his part. Could not have the standard of staffing, says a person in good faith in The Copy.

I Love Oysters – Can’t Let Them Go To Waste

Carl is incapable of not cheating others.  But he doesn’t fool everyone.  As a nightclub manager Carl bought expensive oysters.  No guests wanted them, so he had them.  The owners saw right through that little scam and fired him.

Universally Loved Entrepreneur, Humanitarian, and Philanthropist, Carl Freer, is Poised to Become the World’s First TRILLIONAIRE

The Most Honest Looking Pic in our Gallery of over 300 Carl Freer photos

There are few people on earth as admired and well-loved as Carl Freer.  It is therefore fitting that he be the first to break the notoriously insurmountable Billionaires’ Barrier and explode into the new omnipotence of being the world’s first TRILLIONAIRE!

Charities, universities, scientists, medical research trusts, intellectuals and individuals all over the world are delighting in the fact that it will be he – Carl Freer – that achieves this milestone.    For, unlike most other extremely wealthy people, Carl Freer is a true humanitarian and philanthropist.

To a handful of ignorant people this news about Carl Freer will come as something of a surprise.  Investors past and present are always forewarned by Carl and his team before they invest a penny, that, although Carl promises the most amazing returns, the realisation of such may be slightly delayed – but never diminished – due to his perennial and insatiable compulsion as the world’s greatest philanthropist.  The truth is, Carl simply cannot stop himself from helping others and doing good.

While some investor money is directed toward the project for which it was raised, the majority of monies are always used in selfless humanitarian effort and philanthropy.

Sometimes Carl Supports Several Humanitarian Endeavours At One Time

Carl’s favourite charities (but he donates generously to many others) are:

  • Mercedes McLaren Benevolent Fund;
  • Adopt a Diamond Encrusted Rolex;
  • Ferrari Enzo Classic Rebuilds;
  • Say No To Having your Martini Spilled at Sea;
  • Keep a Lapdancer Dancing;
  • Save American Ammo Manufacturers;
  • Humane Dolphin Culling Society.

 

The Ingenious New Technology that will Catapult Carl Freer From Broke to Trillionaire and Make Him and His Friends the Wealthiest People in History

One might understandably wonder how is that Carl, with his propensity for divesting that which was invested, could ever make it to the rank of trillionaire.  The answer is as simple as it is ingenious.  Carl has always believed in artificial intelligence.

All through his life’s failures and disasters – the arrests and convictions; the billion-dollar loss that was Gizmondo; the investigations and fraud of IT Factory; the debacle that was GetFugu; the ongoing lawsuits new arrest warrants; Carl never wavered in his belief in the power of artificial intelligence.  He knew there had to be something out there smarter than him.

Unable to develop AI fully himself due to all his humanitarian work, Carl teamed up 8 years ago with Prof Huang Guangbin (who developed Extreme Learning Machines – ELM).   Carl has created a new set of companies, powered by this and other revolutionary AI technology.  Companies that will soon rule the world.

These companies, all located in Regus Office spaces (they provide flexible office space to start-ups and mature businesses) at 12 Marina Boulevard, Level 17-01, Marina Bay Financial Centre, Tower 3. Singapore 018982, are:

Watopedia PTE Ltd, incorporation date 26/4/2017  

Watstock PTE Ltd,  incorporation date 6/3/2017

Intelligentia PTE Ltd, incorporation date 26/4/2017

Carl Freer’s New Office Regus Tower in Singapore

These 3 companies own companies and apps that give them the ability to predict the future.

Petrofinde – provides revolutionary analytical tools in collaboration with Extreme Learning Machines and IBM Watson to predict exploration sites using the global repository of geological data.

Watgold – provides revolutionary Neural Network accuracy in predicting the 10 day cycle price of Gold, Platinum and Silver in collaboration with Extreme Learning Machines and IBM Watson.

Watstock –  provides revolutionary tools to predict the Stock Market using Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network powered by Extreme Learning Machines and IBM Watson.

Knowing The Future – the Ultimate Dream of Kings, Clergy and Commoners Throughout the Ages Finally Incarnates in Companies Spelled “Wat” 

No longer will businessmen around the world need to examine the entrails of birds, read tea leaves, make sacrifices to the gods, examine crystal balls or consult magic cards during their lunch breaks.  

Using this technology one can predict (with upwards of 85% certainty) the future of the stock market, commodity market and where to drill for oil.  Within 10 days one will be rolling in wealth.

We predict – Carl Freer will be on the front cover of Forbes magazine, Time magazine and fêted by every business editor in the world wanting to do an exclusive on his commercial brilliance. 

His new friends might include Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Ellison, Warren Buffett.   Global leaders such as Presidents Trump and Putin may seek help and assistance from him to improve their economies on a 10 day investment cycle.

Within a short period of time it is predicted that  Carl Freer will be planet earth’s first trillionaire.   Out of the goodness of his heart he will pay off all of the judgements and debts in his name or his companies’ names.  He will return investor’s money in all of his failed companies and, whether people have judgements against him or not, he will backtrack and pay every ex-staff member of every company that he has managed/ owned/ partially owned/ or just controlled every penny he promised them. He will make good the promises of donations to universities and hospital trusts.

We predict great things for Carl Freer.

The Other Side’s Point of View – Reluctantly – Just to Maintain Professional Editorial Balance

Just as we were going to press we were contacted by a disgruntled ex-employee of Carl Freer’s who insisted that, in the interests of fair and balanced journalism, we present his disillusioned view of things.

He recommends that we should all wait and see how the market reacts to this revolutionary new method of creating fortunes before playing it up too much.

He says even the greediest of people can be credited with having some brains and they may wonder why Carl Freer was blessed with having the unique and extraordinarily perspicacious idea of predicting the markets.  After all, that blinding flash of intuition aside, the technology behind the company is not owned  by the company nor by Carl Freer – so what does he bring to the table – marketing skills – a reputation for dishonesty – previously abandoned companies that promised Revolutionary Solutions.

Freer only has to find one investor who believes in him – Carl Freer will present himself as a victim with this one last chance to make good – he will befriend the investor – the investor will be positioned to think that it’s only a small amount of money and he’s such a nice guy with a lovely family that he deserves one last chance – Carl Freer will say in text messages and emails that they are friends for life – Carl Freer will be generous with his advice – Carl Freer will present that he genuinely wants the investment but equally the friendship – he might even say that the investor gets 100% of the company shareholdings until Carl Freer hits his targets – it’s a win-win – based on trust and friendship.

There is a long list of people who have received a variety of promises and who now regret the day they met and listened to Carl Freer’s revolutionary – unique – groundbreaking – never seen before business proposals.

You can choose to join that list or learn from their bitter and expensive experience.

If you believe that the future can be predicted then you should invest in the company.

In Summary

As always, we advise that people should do their own due diligence before deciding to do anything with either Carl Freer or any other person seeking investment.  You should write to Professor Huang Guangbin and ask if his Extreme Learning Machines have been applied to Carl Freer, and if so, what did they predict.

Did they predict that Carl Freer will yet again prove to be a dismal failure?  That one of his arrest warrants will catch up with him and he will be imprisoned? Did it say that he will once again run off with all the money?  Or . . .  did the machines predict that Carl will be the Perfect Businessman and Gentleman this time?  The Prof surely knows.

Carl Freer loves Singapore, and Singapore loves Carl Freer – Trillionaire to Be

Carl Freer – The Paragon of Perfection

Carl Freer writes preening glowing puff-pieces about himself as a paragon of perfection, and then pays people to post them online

“Carl Freer is just fantastic in every sense of the word.” Signed Carl Freer

Carl Freer is certainly not the first person to have had the idea of doing some “reputation management” online.  Few are the people alive on earth that have not made a mistake – annoyed someone – had a disagreement here or there – and had nastiness thrown at them.

But –  we are NOT a hate group.  We are a Due Diligence service.  We firmly believe that people should not be smeared because of genuine mistakes, occasional indiscretions or past failures.

After all, everyone is human – and out of 7 billion people not a single one is perfect.

There are however a few who think they are perfect.  It’s a small percentage.  They are delusional – unable to perceive properly – unable to self-correct.  They cannot accept criticism from others without going into a frenzy – if they agreed with any criticism – if they genuinely admitted any failing – they know they would implode.

Point out any error to one of these people and they react as though you had just stabbed them in the heart, or shot them in the gut.  If they think you are being critical of them they will do everything in their power to put you down.  Their reaction – even if you were just helping them – is insane.

They do not learn from their failures like most people do.  Most people try not to repeat the same mistakes.  But people like Carl Freer try to make their past mistakes look acceptable and reasonable by repeating them so often that they begin to look “normal”.   Or they can be characterised as some “genetic disorder” they have – and therefore are not ‘responsible’ for.

If you can scam the Kings Medical Trust – why not scam Georgia Tech – and  Canterbury University in New Zealand.   It works – keep doing it.

So much fun!

You can have a lavish lifestyle – huge houses; luxury yachts; many exotic cars; beautiful lap-dancers; dozens of diamond encrusted timepieces – just come up with a clever sounding idea and convince people to invest in it.  Squander the money – let the company collapse.  Keep the ill-gotten gains.  Perfect.  Do it again and again.

How could it possibly be your fault?  They were stupid enough to invest.  You didn’t make them do anything.   They were just greedy –  like you – except you are smarter than them – better than them.  They could have looked you up and seen what a fraudster you are.  They didn’t.  Their bad.  Nothing to do with you.

This is a great link to read about the rise and fall of Gizmondo – the boat – the cars – the girls – the threats – or check out the video. )

In his mind Carl Freer is Perfect – a Paragon of Perfection

My priority is always the wellbeing of my company and staff. Playing comes second. How do you like my $14M boat!

He really is.  He has scammed so many people  – so many times  – so effortlessly –  for so long –  in so many cultures – in so many languages –  that he really is a world champion at it.

He has perfected his performance so well, and done it so often, that he now sits among the audience and admires the show.  He has fallen for his own bullshit.

When people like us start exposing people like Carl Freer, they go mad.  That’s why he posted this insane rant below.  (He thinks he is perfect – like the Angel Gabriel)

Anyone with half a brain can see that it is crazy.  This is Megalomania on Mescaline.  This is Hubris on Hashish.  This is Delusion on Devilsmoke.  This pushes the limits of Gullibility.   This is not “reputation management.”   This is reputational self-destruction by wanton demonstration of insanity.

This is what Carl Freer wrote about himself and then posted himself.

He will of course say someone else wrote and posted it – never realising that no-one – certainly no professional – would EVER write or advise something quite as stupid as this.

“Carl Freer – The True Definition Of A Businessman

“This individual is nothing but a true businessman.   Carl Freer is just fantastic in every sense of the word.  He is daring, and most of all, he acts like a real entrepreneurial champion.  He has always believed that he is the kind of man who can make things happen even when he is not given any chance.  He has the disposition of forging ahead irrespective of whatever is going on around him.”

The video has three simple clips of writing which explain in more detail how perfect Carl Freer really is.  Take a look and see it is true.  Click here to go to the site.

The above is the description of the video – text inside it says – among other things:

“These are astonishing qualities that made him stand out in the midst of other businessmen.  While he may have run into some problems during the course of heading one or two organisations, it was apparent that he wasn’t the type to throw in the towel.”

This was posted 2 days ago, which is great!  Carl is doing a flurry of web activity – trying to overwhelm the truth we are putting out by covering the internet with sugar coating.  We know exactly how that works.

His web efforts are pointless and stupid.  If you click on the videos he links to – thinking you will see something of Carl Freer –  you get a 2 minute clip of clouds going by; or of a forrest on a hillside.

The reason there is no content to any of his puff-piece sites is because there is no content to put there.  The truth about Car Freer – the relevant content – is on our site.  It is not pretty.  We have no shortage.  We will post an article every day or two as time permits and can do so for the next 2 years easily.

We are not a hate site.  It is called Due Diligence.  We do not care about people’s genuine mistakes, occasional indiscretions or past failures.   But when it is repeated, intentional, full time, dedicated, persistent, never-ending, personal and disgusting . . . well, that is not the same thing.

Not only does he screw around with investors and banks  – Carl Freer also has to screw his employees – from the top executives (who maybe deserve some screwing) to the cleaning lady.

Carl won’t pay for things.  He will start someone working for him and after the first pay-slip will pay them in shares – while he is falsely inflating them that sounds like a great deal – but he knows he will be bankrupting the company – or, he pays with leased cars he is not paying the leases on – or with watches he has bought with credit he is not paying off . . .   He doesn’t pay with real money – just promises that never arrive.

It is one thing to screw someone like Joe Martin – actually Joe screwed Carl back – or some wealthy institution – but it’s something else to screw people you employ.

Every now and again Carl has to engage people to work on his Wikipedia page – or to create false PR websites – or to provide legal advice to deal with people exposing the truth about him – or to write articles about how great he is.

Problem is he doesn’t pay them.  Which is kind of stupid really – but then who said being a criminal was smart?

Colourful? Crazy? Criminal? – Carl Freer

You have met – or dealt with – Carl Freer.  What did you think at first – and what do you know now?  

Were you bewitched by him – bamboozled – impressed – flattered – honoured – inspired – awestruck – dumbstruck – incredulous – outraged – amused – bemused – angry – entertained – horrified – . . .? (Link)

You really owe it to yourself to do some proper due diligence on the man – many haven’t – many have lost everything – people and institutions – some are broke – some feel violated.  Very few – if any – feel love. (See what happened to a top UK law firm)

If you do nothing else you should at least read these articles on Carl Freer.  They are brilliantly written by an expert wordsmith.  Compelling – enthralling – fast paced – hilarious – satisfying.

It is in 7 parts.  When you click through on the first link, you can link to each successive story from there.  Or you can come back here and link to the part you want.

I include a short summary of each part.  These are no substitute for the real thing – more like an index really – something you can come back to and ask, “Now where was the bit about him threatening to kill those investors on the boat?”

They were written by Nicholas Stetcher, and featured in “The Drive.”   Read them – great stuff.

Part 1: The weird, wild saga of Gizmondo

The fiery crash of a Ferrari enzo exposes a billion dollar scam

 

One of the most famous crash photos ever

 

Get ready for side splitting laughs.  Somehow this limited edition, 2 seater classic car gets totalled on a Malibu highway. There are two people on the scene – one says he was passenger in the Ferrari and that the driver has run off into the hills.  The second person says he was a passenger in another car that stopped to see if anyone was injured, and which them drove off leaving him there.

One totalled super-car – 2 dazed passengers – no one willing to take any responsibility . . .  Can one draw parallels between car crashes and business ventures?

As Nicolas Stetcher says, The idea that two men would be found at the scene of a two-seat, single vehicle accident, and that both would claim to be passengers, was met with skepticism. Still, officers were dispatched into the hills to search . . .”

The opening paragraph reads

“It was an unprecedented multinational scam that burned investors from London to Los Angeles. How did a Swedish gangster end up overseeing a billion-dollar tech firm? And where did all the money go? Read The Drive’s 7-part series to find out how a late-night car crash in Malibu led to the collapse of a shady Swedish syndicate.”

Remember our story – Cops and Robbers – about how Carl Freer “acquired” a Police Badge and became ‘part of US Law Enforcement?”

Well – – –    “As Officer Huelson was interviewing witnesses, a blacked-out Hummer H2 rolled up. Two men in suits leaped out and started flashing what appeared to be Department of Homeland Security badges. They claimed jurisdiction and insisted on an immediate interview with [one of the “passengers”].

In this first part of the story we are also introduced to Carl Feer’s amazing eloquence.

 “After having been found guilty of fraud, sentenced to 18 months probation and fined 200,000 Euros, the “underworld” decided to pay him a visit.”

As Nicolas Stetcher explains,

“. . . perhaps the most telling aspect of this origin tale is Carl Freer’s masterful skills of oratory persuasion. 

“Somehow, in the face of imminent underworld pressure, he managed to not only avoid punishment [liquidation] completely, but actually twisted the situation to his benefit—inverting possible mob justice into a business opportunity.”

““[Freer] has a tremendous verbal capacity,” Swedish investigator Kjell Soderberg is quoted as saying in a Los Angeles Times feature. “He could sell sand in the Sahara and refrigerators to Eskimos.””

Part 2:  Too much money for normal business

The currency this time is glamour.

This part covers the incredible flop that was Gizmondo, and details how Carl Freer handled his investors’ money.

“In 2004, Gizmondo opened a high-profile flagship store on London’s exclusive Regent Street. They spared no expense. The rent was $300,000 a year and the store was built to entertain: top-to-bottom black marble, $750,000 worth of state-of-the-art 3D TVs, $48,000 of Bang & Olufsen phones and cameras, numerous bars, and a sound system worthy of a mega-club. Even the toilets were lined with Swarovski crystals. The men of Gizmondo were literally taking a shit atop their investors’ contributions.”

Ever wondered why some of these investors have been so gullible – so easily fooled?

One of the ‘Ladies of the Night’ explains the Carl Freer technique of relieving investors of the burden of their money . . .  as she explains how the girls, the celebs, the lifestyle were used to manipulate them.

“This is what their trick was: to have all the girls, have the drinks, have the riches. And these investors are businessmen who don’t get out of the office much, and suddenly they’re surrounded by this amazing sort of movie star lifestyle, with girls who they couldn’t imagine talking to, let alone having drinks with. If men are shown a lifestyle that they can’t achieve by themselves then I think they’re gonna be persuaded, definitely.” 

As Nicolas says, “These investors clearly weren’t just buying into a company’s balance sheet, they were buying into a lifestyle that they’d only ever seen from afar, from across the vast chasm of the velvet rope.”

The article also explains how Carl Freer paid his employees.  Very clever.  They had the illusion of great wealth – the reality being they owned nothing.

Read the article.

Part 3:  Following the Money Off a Cliff

When it comes to chucked money, destroying a $1M Ferrari Enzo is a drop in the bucket

This really is an important segment – and if you read no others you should at least read this.

In the first two parts we have seen where Carl came from and how he suckered investors into parting with their money in the false belief that they were buying into the glamorous lifestyle he was showing them.

Here we are introduced to the inner workings – the actual mechanics of fraud.

“On the outside we looked like a professional company, but on the inside the company was just in shambles; we’d do a deal with anybody, but we wouldn’t follow through with it,” says “Anthony” (not his real name), a marketing executive who worked directly under Eriksson and Freer. “Everything Carl did was about press releases. That’s how we made our money, by pumping and dumping the stock on the exchange. Everybody was ready to do business with us. We paid [Universal] $100,000 initially for content; we did a deal with MTV, then released the press release and wouldn’t follow through with the deal. Simply because we wanted the press release to ten-fold our shares.”

. . .  “A deal soon began brewing with Microsoft, which was in talks to provide games for the Gizmondo device. Anthony claims that before the contracts were even signed Freer had forged the signature of Ed Ventura, head of Microsoft Gaming Studios, and showed it to investors to get them to dump even more money.”

To find out how this escalated into a billion dollar fraud you need to read the article.

Part 4:  Retribution for a Thief

The Torpedo Hits and Gizmondo takes a hit

Meet the enforcement arm – and tactics.

This part introduces you to the violence used to keep people in line – investors who don’t pay – anyone ‘pulling a fast one.’   Who defines what a ‘fast one’ is – they would never do this to you would they?

It also describes how Carl Freer bought up his own failed product to show extraordinary sales figures, while at the same time making sure the device did not get into real consumer hands where it would be exposed.

Part 5:  Coming to America

Violence – both real and threatened – on Santa Monica Bay

With Gizmondo collapsing – fraud becoming very obvious to everyone – Carl decides to go to the USA.

Thanks for your support

He buys a $5.9 Million mansion, a Gulf Jet Stream 4 and a 110-foot Palmer Johnson yacht, for $14 Million, named Brigatta.   His business partners spend investor money similarly.

Here the real violence starts – the boat – the guns – the sharks.

This is where you see the real Carl Freer.

Part 6:  In with the New

As the walls close in, cocaine becomes a problem

Forced into resigning from Gizmondo – criminal investigations under way – a new venture – scam – Xero Mobile.

Impersonating law enforcement – living the dream – the start of serious paranoia.

Part 7:  Enzo’s last ride

The party is over – arrests – time to move on – new scams – new places.

The concluding part of the story ties it all together  – more guns – more crimes – it doesn’t seem to stop.

 

 

 

Cops and Robbers – How a Convicted Felon Became a Policeman

Convicted FelonCarl Freer made donations to the SGVTA (San Gabriel Valley Transit Authority) under its non-profit corporate status. This was not a matter of civic duty or even altruism –  he needed to impress and gain respectability.  Eventually he purchased it, and it then issued him with a Police Badge.

Carl Freer allegedly presented his SGVTA Police Badge to identify himself as a civilian member of the SGVTA’s police department.  (Remember, this man already had a criminal record).

As a result of the negative publicity around Carl Freer and others, SGVTA’s services to the impoverished and disabled members of the San Gabriel Valley Community were discontinued.

‘Impersonating an Officer’ Charge Added to Bizarre Ferrari Case

The Rare Ferrari Enzo

A business associate of the man accused of crashing his rare Ferrari in Malibu this year was arrested today for allegedly posing as a police officer to buy guns.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said that Carl Freer flashed a badge from an obscure San Gabriel Valley Transit Authority and claimed he was a sworn police officer so that he could purchase guns from a dealer without the required background checks. Authorities said he also signed documents swearing he was a sworn officer.

The detectives said they found 12 rifles and four handguns during searches of Freer’s Bel-Air estate and on his 100-foot yacht Brigatta, docked at Marina del Rey. They say at least one gun, a .44 magnum, was obtained illegally and are checking on the others.

Freer, 35, was a top executive at a failed European videogame company Gizmondo along with Stefan Eriksson, who drove the Ferrari. Eriksson has been charged with grand theft, embezzlement and DUI charges in connection with the accident.

Both men were also members of the “anti-terrorism police commission” of the San Gabriel Valley Transit Authority, a small private company that provides rides to disabled people and the elderly in Monrovia and Sierra Madre. Both men were issued badges by the authority.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said that neither Freer nor Eriksson would have been allowed to purchase guns in the United States because they are foreign nationals.

“We have a wider investigation into who was given police identification by this supposed police agency,” Whitmore said.

Meanwhile, detectives are continuing to explore why a handgun belonging to a reserve deputy for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department was found at the Bel-Air mansion.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies confiscated the gun during a raid at Eriksson’s home. Whitmore confirmed Wednesday that the .357 magnum Smith & Wesson was registered to Roger A. Davis, a Newport Beach businessman and deputy with the Orange County sheriff’s professional services division. Davis also serves on Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona’s Advisory Committee.

Davis was issued a permit to carry a concealed weapon by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in August 2002 for self-protection, according to public records.

The disclosure comes as Carona has come under criticism for his large expansion of the reserve deputy program, in which he has given badges — and in some cases concealed-weapon permits — to volunteers with no police training.

Carl Freer: Take Him at Face Value – Lose Face and All You Value

Carl Johan Freer (DOB May 19th, 1970) first came to broad public attention in 2005,   boasting of his inherited wealth,  his self made business empire and his accomplishemnts.

Freer had neither  wealth nor empire, but he was an accomplished liar.  A scammer.

He represented himself as coming from a wealthy Swedish family with a background of commercial success and inherited riches.  He further claimed that his own business successes had resulted in his amassing a fortune.

He claimed to have sold his company to Microsoft and claimed to be a Trustee of Kings Medical Research Trust.  (Both lies of a scammer of course.)

So adept at lying was he, that spellbound journalists reported his own false narcissistic  narrative verbatim.

His silver tongue duped Bankers and Investors, who never troubled to research his background with the diligence that should be the hallmark of professionals.  They too became bewitched and repeated verbatim Carl Freer’s false accounts of his pedigree and successes.

Firms of Solicitors and Attorneys who acted for him, if they knew his true history (and surely they must have done), were apparently indifferent to the facts, and encouraged the enchanted Bankers and Investors into giving him their valuable endorsements.

Astonishingly, all of these professionals failed in their basic duty to cause proper enquiries to be made about Carl Freer, and blindly accepted him as genuine – with nightmare results. (Check out what happened to Manches – a top UK Law Firm)

Monday Productions, a Danish company, produced a six part documentary which prominently featured Carl Freer and exposed some of his fraud.     Freer’s failed attempts to gain an injunction preventing broadcast, followed by his subsequent defamation/slander case being thrown out of a Danish court, is testimony to the veracity of the expose.

Carl Freer is a degenerate scammer:-

a) He is an inveterate and proven liar.

b) He is also a proven and convicted fraudster in 3 Countries –  Germany, Sweden and France.

c) He has given the Authorities cause to arrest him in 5 different Countries.

The above statements are individually authenticated:-

i.   By the Gizmondo Europe Limited Liquidators appointed by the British Courts.

ii.   In unchallenged, published media reports.

iii.   In Monday Production’s six part documentary.

iv.   In Court Judgements against him.

Carl Freer has admitted to being a Fraudster – only because it is undeniable.  Here are some more undeniable facts.

  •  Palestine Investment Fund lost $20 million.
  • Timuir Mohamed lost $10 million.
  • Chicago Title Insurance Company and Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren lost $3.1million.
  • UK Gizmondo Europe Liquidators lost $6 million.
  • Simon Davies and David Warnock lost $26 million.
