2018 will be an eventful year for the master criminal Carl Freer.
A year that starts with much anticipation and reveals intriguing orchestration and manipulation as he ducks and dives in a futile attempt to free himself from the snare and its inexorable tugging toward a French jail cell, while appeasing and stalling his handlers for whom he failed to deliver in 2017 – and all while also placating authorities on several fronts.
Before predicting the future let us take a moment to give you some background information in order that you can make your own assessment of what makes this man tick.
Carl Freer’s Father, John Freer, now deceased, was a British Citizen who met and married Maryanne (his mother) in Sweden while working there in a nuclear facility. Carl Johan Freer was born on 19th May 1970.
In 1976 the family moved to San Francisco where his Father became an IBM Programmer. This post lasted for about 2 years before IBM assigned him to duties in France and Belgium.
In 1983, aged 13, Carl Freer’s parents separated and Carl Freer found himself back in Sweden living with his mother.
As a 15 year old Carl Freer dropped out of school and started working full time in Restaurants and Night Clubs. His first fraud that we know of was committed at this time – with no customer demand for it, and on a whim, he ordered in expensive sea food delicacies which he, unsurprisingly, failed to sell and so had to consume himself least it spoil. He was fired for that caper but not criminally charged.
The young Carl Freer had ambition – alas he had neither talent nor inclination to achieve anything by any legitimate means.
With a school friend he decided to get into designer clothing and set his sights on opening a clothes shop – so he went to the bank SE Banken and forged his parent’s signatures to secure a loan and forged various checks. The shop fell through. At the age of 18 Carl Freer became a Father – an event soon followed with his first conviction for Fraud. The Prosecution was brought by SE Banken and his Father repaid the stolen funds and damages.
Carl Freer avoided incarceration as the Judge, regretfully, decided to give him another chance due to his young age and gave him a noncustodial sentence against his better judgement.
A decent man would have learned from his mistakes and changed his ways, but as hundreds of ex-employees, investors, and professionals can attest, Carl Freer is not a decent man. The lessons he learned from his conviction emboldened him and he went on a roll committing numerous frauds at a rate that seems to have overwhelmed the authorities. Swedish Media reports confirm that during this period Carl Freer was directly associated with 14 companies that were abandoned into bankruptcy.
To avoid the Police investigations and creditor actions that were starting to catch up with him Carl Freer moved to Spain where he traded in stolen second-hand exotic cars. By this time we was 26 years old and the Father of two children.
He formed two companies in Spain – Welcom Motors and Riviera Auto Forum – and began a business relationship with Thomas Chelin selling exotic cars that had been stolen in Germany and France.
By the time he was 29 he had been arrested in Spain whence he fled to France where he resumed operations in selling his stolen exotic cars until arrested there whence he fled to Great Britain and resumed the business of selling stolen exotic cars under the alias of Eric Jonsson in a new company – European Car Sales – and was arrested again.
An International Arrest Warrant was issued by the German authorities and Carl Freer spent 3 years fighting extradition by feigning illness and incapacitation until the Germans tried and convicted him (Carl Freer alias Brian Littlejohn) in absentia on 2 counts of Fraud. He was 35 at that point. His then business partner Thomas Chelin returned to Estonia where he was arrested on Drug charges.
Carl Freer felt that a judgement against him in France could be overturned (thereby clearing his name), and after numerous appeals the matter was heard by the Court of Cassation – the highest court in France whose decision is final. To Carl Freer’s great alarm the French High Court investigated the matter diligently and the 3 judges unanimously convicted Carl Freer for his criminal activities, his lies and bad faith, and his involvement with a Mafia ring – and sentenced him to 2 and a half years imprisonment, a large fine and, due to his absence, issued an arrest warrant for his immediate arrest. Carl Freer was 41 at that time and he has been on the run ever since.
(Read this thorough article for more detailed information and documents on his criminal past, including pertinent excerpts of the French case.)
As a serial convicted fraudster Carl Freer has grown accustomed to allegations of embezzlement, fraud and forgery in businesses wherever they are located in the World.
In 2014 a US Judge found him guilty and ordered him to pay Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren S.C. $2,543,450.07. He was additionally ordered to pay Chicago Title Insurance Company $475,000.00. Unsurprisingly these Judgments remain unpaid as the then 44 year old Carl Freer beat a hasty retreat from the USA and established himself in his new location, Singapore.
As we enter the year 2018 Carl Freer has over $3 million in Judgements against him, a record of 5 arrests in 5 different countries, convictions for fraud in 3 different countries, an outstanding warrant for his arrest in France, and an amazing litany of failed companies and ventures in Sweden, Spain, France, England, USA, Hong Kong, Vietnam – to which he has now added Singapore and Dubai.
He has defrauded people and organisations of tens of millions of Dollars, including the PLO which he relieved of $20 Million alone. He has been sued by Banks, PR firms, and Law firms.
(Update: At the time of updating this article, the above video has received 3891 additional clicks in just 24 hours. This is because the authorities are taking a fresh look into this fraud as Carl Freer has demonstrated ongoing anti-Muslim sentiment and activity. The Scandinavian term “Muslimhat” literally means, “Hatred of Muslims”, and nothing could be a greater demonstration of contempt than to steal US$20 million from the poorest Islamic Arabs in the World – or (as he did recently) disrespectfully establish a Stock Investment site called WatSharia using HotStock technology to allow Muslims to play the stock market.)
Despite his criminality, his disdain for other cultures, his unabashed manipulation and subjugation of anyone he deals with, Carl Freer yet touts himself as a Humanitarian and Philanthropist and writes puff pieces that he posts on the internet claiming to be one of the greatest intellectuals of the century.
As we enter 2018 we have to wonder where the now 47 year old criminal will turn next to support his lavish lifestyle. His last ventures – the AI platforms of Watstock and Hotstock – have failed dismally.
One wonders why he does not simply take the money he has stolen and disappear – he could live out his life on the proceeds of his crimes quite easily. But that is not an option for him.
Officials can easily be accused of incompetence – but only to a certain degree. When it gets too outrageous – like getting permanent residency in Singapore, a country that prides itself on screening out criminals, despite having an international arrest warrant – or imitating the King of Dubai – or defrauding the PLO with impunity – one realises that Carl Freer has been facilitated and provided air cover by powerful people, and has debts to repay. Debts he has to repay one way or another.
Carl Freer has few, if any, friends. His love of defrauding people does not stop with rich investors. Carl has to rip off the staff he employs in his scam companies, he has to rip off the professionals he engages, he has to rip off the partners he involves – and he has to rip off his friends. He can make an enemy out of just about anyone – including people that no sane person would ever antagonise.
Sometimes we hope his family is immune from his deceit. Surely he is proud of the family he created – after all he has involved many of them in previous businesses. He would not turn on them too . . . ?
His first common law partner was Camilla Agerstam and together they had two children, Julia and Adam.
His first wife was Anneli Freer and together they had Simon and Ellina as well as Natalie (child of Anneli’s from her first marriage).
His second and current wife is Ericka Freer and together they have Isabella and Jace (child of Ericka’s from her first marriage).
Carl Freer has accumulated 7 children, a common law wife and two marriages.
Are they isolated or protected from him? As you will see below, if you follow the links and read the documents, he involves them in his criminality, minimally making them accomplices if not directly implicating them.
Carl Freer is no doubt hoping that 2018 will be a more peaceful year after the debacles of 2017. He will however find no peace. He has made enemies of thousands of people, alienated his ‘friends’, disappointed his handlers, and endangered his family.
The French are trying to reel him in, and there is relentless pressure from the American and Danish authorities whose pursuit for justice for the victims in the IT Factory scam continues and is gaining impetus rapidly thanks, in large part, to our documents.
The execution of that scam by Stein Baggar, Mikael Ljungman and Carl Freer was simple enough. Below we outline some of the details – it is a little disjointed and thin as, at the request of the investigating teams, we have omitted a lot.
IT Factory stolen funds were used by Media Power to build intellectual property in the “Augmented Reality” sector. This led to a number of Patent Applications being filed on behalf of Media Power. Under American patent law an officer has to be named in the patent application therefore you will see Carl Freer’s name attached to these patents.
Mikael Ljungman had had his name attached to the patents too, but he paid to have his name removed from them in order to hide his involvement.
With the patents filed, Media Power next claimed to have purchased 48% of the restricted shares in Madero Inc. and made public statements to the Security Exchange Commission and through its Accounts that it executed the purchase. However, both statements are false as the company Madero Inc. was paid for by eCommerce LLC and 100% of the shareholding was distributed to a number of entities and natural persons including Carl Freer and Mikael Ljungman.
The above highlights and documents the fraudulent partnership between Carl Freer and Mikael Ljungman in the money laundering of IT Factory’s funds.
The intellectual property, represented by patent applications, was transferred to Carl Freer who in turn transferred it to a company called the Mara Group, a company wholly owned by Carl Freer. The public company Madero Inc. (that was purchased with IT Factory stolen funds) engaged Corporate Evaluation Advisers Inc. to issue a valuation report. They valued the patent applications (regarding the technology called Augmented Reality) at US$35million to US$52million.
Upon receiving the valuation, Madero Inc. purchased the patents from the Mara Group for 25 million shares. At the time of the transaction the shares were valued at US$60million. Madero Inc. then changed its name to GetFugu Inc.
GetFugu Inc. as a public company had to continue to file reports with the SEC. Like all of Carl Freer’s companies it ultimately failed to deliver the product and the promises made to shareholders. The purchase of the patent application occurred on 9th April 2009 and by the 19th May 2010, with the company facing financial ruin, GetFugu assigned all of its assets into a promissory note with Remington Global Capital LLC for $170,000.
8-K Filed May 25, 2010, Line 313:
“On May 19, 2010 , we obtained a bridge loan and issued a Secured Convertible Promissory Note in the initial principal amount of $170,000 to Remington Global Capital, LLC, payable in six months and bearing interest at 1% per month for the first month and 10% per month thereafter, secured by all our assets including intellectual property, and convertible after 6 months at holder’s election into shares of our common stock at $0.004 per share, subject to downward adjustment.”
It will come as no surprise to note that Remington Global Capital is a Carl Freer owned company.
Logovision Inc. (another Carl Freer company) comes into being and they now claim to own the IPR. This carries on for a 12 month period after which Logovision is taken over by Serge Media Group, who now claim they own the IPR.
Upon Serge Media Group’s take over of Logovision it presents a document claiming to buy out Carl Freer’s interests and John Freer Inc’s interests effectively on a promissory note.
After the Serge Media Group had failed to pay Carl Freer, and his name had been unconnected to the intellectual property for a two year period, along with his now being relocated in Singapore, he felt confident enough to come back onto the scene.
Carl Freer terminated the deal with Serge Media Group for non-payment and assigned the IPR Rights to Harrisburg (BVI). Harrisburg (BVI) is owned 50/50 between Carl Freer and a trusted business partner.
Carl Freer had incorporated a company called Tynkerbell in Singapore and then changed its name to iQNECT – who now claim ownership of the IP in sales documentation and marketing material. It somewhat bizarrely resubmits the original patent applications to the US Patent Office in iQNECT’s name. Please note Richard Jenkins wife ( Elizabeth Marie Jenkins) as a shareholder
More bizarrely, the same patent applications were filed with the US Patent Office in Logovision Inc’s name on the exact same day.
This concludes and evidences the fraud, iQNECT’s technology portfolio did not exist, all patent applications have to be unique and original. The applications fail on both counts as Media Power’s/GetFugu/Carl Freer patent applications had been previously abandoned. The correlation being that abandoned applications cannot be re-submitted as original or unique as they have existed prior in the abandoned filings. Carl Freer and Rich Jenkins must have known this as the applications have yet again been abandoned by iQNECT.
