Carl Freer Stole His Father’s Soul

This site receives lots of enquiries asking us, one way or another, why Carl Freer behaves the way he does, and this article is an attempt to give people an understanding of the psychological make-up that is Carl Freer – Sweden’s Most Successful Failure.

John Freer, Carl Freer's Father
An Honourable Man – John Freer – Father of a Dishonourable Man – Carl Freer – International Fraudster and Resounding Failure. Carl Freer’s First Crime Was To Steal His Identity To Defraud A Bank

Bottom line – Carl Freer is a thief.   While he has stolen millions of dollars, the most valuable thing he stole was his Father’s persona – along with much of his good name and the goodwill he genuinely earned.  Carl Freer dons that gentle soul’s personality like a grotesque leper wears a mask to hide his disfigurement.

Carl Freer Trying To Emmulate His Father

People meeting Carl Freer for the first time see a ‘kind and gentle soul’, a ‘thoughtful, sharing and caring individual’ who appears to genuinely have their best interests at heart.

Carl Freer is adept at slipping into that character – his Father – and using that charade successfully cloaks from view the fact that he is a genuinely nasty man.  Lepers are disfigured by disease – not something they desire.  Carl Freer is disfigured by choice – in heart and mind and soul.

Close associates, employees, family – they all know who he really is.

Lyndon Johnson allegedly said that every man is trying either to live up to his Father’s expectations or make up for his Father’s mistakes.   Perhaps he should not have used the word “every” – because Carl Freer does neither of these.

As we will show you below, Carl Freer’s Father, John Freer, was a successful man; an accomplished academic and author; a man who helped improve the world we live in and who applied his many talents to constructive endeavours.  He was well-loved and respected by friends, family and acquaintances and those whose lives he touched usually benefitted from the interaction.  He was, and still is, highly regarded by his peers.

John Freer’s expectations were that his son would grow up to be a valuable, contributing member of society.  A man admired and respected by others; a man who could be counted upon and trusted; a man who would enhance the good name of the Freer’s.

John Freer did not make many mistakes.  He had an excellent career and his track record in his profession is unblemished.  But . . .  he was responsible for conceiving his son, Carl Freer. That was his Big Mistake.

Carl Freer shares none of his Father’s virtues

John Freer BSc, DMS, CEng, FIEE was an accomplished author and academic.  He served as the principle consultant at Software Science Limited when he wrote the book, Computer Communications and Networks in 1988.  The Book sold remarkably well due to it’s timely release and the fact that it filled a vacuum, assisting in the building of technologies which we now use on the internet.  Some years later he thoroughly revised and updated the Book whilst serving as principle consultant at Data Sciences UK Limited, a subsidiary of IBM.

John Freer had a remarkable mind.   He was a regular contributor to academic papers and is viewed by many as a key contributor to our understanding of Computer Networks and the Internet.

On the cusp of global recognition and on the eve of the launch of his book in 1988, John Freer suddenly had to return to Sweden as his only son, Carl Freer (18 years old at the time), demanded his Father’s attention in his court appearance after his arrest for defrauding a Swedish Bank.  The fraud had been committed by forging his Father’s signature on loan documents.  (Forging documents continues to be a staple ingredient in the Carl Freer smorgasbord of Fraud).

Carl Freer's Father - John Freer (A good man)
John Freer, Father of the notorious criminal Carl Freer.

As a loving Father John Freer reimbursed the Bank, paid for legal representation and paid the fines that Carl Freer had incurred by being caught for his criminal activities.

John Freer had some frank discussions with his son and discovered that he had long been involved in criminal activities – it was just that this time he had been caught.  Carl Freer was both incorrigible and unrepentant when confronted by his Father.  He would take no responsibility for what he had done and, like a thief might blame his hand for stealing, Carl Freer found endless ways to explain away his criminal lifestyle.

To his enduring credit, it appears that John Freer realised that his son, Carl Freer, had deliberately and knowingly chosen to live his life by stealing, defrauding, misleading and corrupting and had further realised that there was absolutely not one single shred of decency or honesty within Carl that could be appealed to, because . . .

. . . after Carl Freer ratified his career choice by getting himself  convicted of Fraud, his Father turned his back on him; returned to his career in academia, and applied his many skills to help those who would appreciate him . . .

. . . while Carl Freer accelerated his criminal activity and expanded into the dizzying heights of International Crime, breaking records by being arrested in at least 5 different countries, while evading an unappealable jail term for more than 16 years.

The Real Carl Freer

Carl Freer is a nomad.  He moves from place to place to place.  He has to.  If he stays in one place too long the authorities find him, the people he has defrauded find him, and he gets arrested.  Carl Freer is not totally stupid.  He knows that he has to keep moving – the repeated arrests in different countries have finally made him correlate criminal conduct with consequences and location.

He has been sued by Lawyers; Business Partners;  Employees;  PR Firms; and The Authorities.  Staff don’t get paid and investors lose their money. When it gets too difficult, he packs his bags and moves to a different country and starts all over again.

The degeneration of his life all seems to have all started when, at 16, he left school and abandoned the education that had been lined up for him, posing instead as a Washer/Waiter in a Restaurant while starting his criminal empire.  As a Teen, he accomplished his first criminal conviction.  At the age of 21 became a father to his first child, Julia.  (He has had 3 wives producing 5 children, Julia, Adam, Simon, ElIina and Isabella.  There are two adopted children through marriage. He is currently engaged in dissolving his 3rd marriage after hooking up with the next inamorata.)

He has lived in Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, England, Switzerland, Belgium, USA, Vietnam, Singapore and now the UAE.  In all of these Countries he has formed businesses to attract Investors, which he does with great ease by assuming his Father’s charismatic personality, before being forced to leave when people discover who he really is.

Swedish Investigator Kjell Soderberg is quoted as saying in a Los Angeles Times feature that Carl Freer could sell sand in the Sahara and refrigerators to Eskimos.  No wonder he is happy living in Dubai.

Carl Freer Dishonors His Father

Carl Freer's Father - John Freer
John Freer – His Biggest Mistake Was Conceiving Carl Freer – The Disappointment Must Have Been Overwhelming

Throughout Carl Freer’s career he has used his Father’s unimpeachable reputation.  It started with faking his Father’s signature to defraud the Bank. It continued with the (fake) King’s College $6million donation by Carl Freer to gain a Trustees position was for the alleged purpose of constructing a new building to be named The John Freer building in recognition of his Father’s achievements.  The truth was that Carl Freer was at that time facing numerous fraud charges in Germany and needed character references to show the Court that he had mended his ways.  Of course, there was no Trustee position, there was no $6million donation and there was no John Freer building.  And, of course, the Court wasn’t fooled either.

We have previously informed our readers that his Father, John Freer, was pronounced dead by his son in order to escape demands for payment from the Solicitors instructed to form a Trust.

Carl Freer wearing the mask

When his Father actually died in the UK on 4th May 2011, Carl Freer did not attend the funeral as he was in fear of being served legal notice in proceedings brought by investors.  But even in death his Father became an asset to be exploited.  In John Freer’s last will and testimony he left his son GBP50,000.00 – however in typical style, within a short period of time investors had been told that he had invested his inheritance of $1.5million into a new project.

As Carl Freer was not a UK Resident at that time he failed to realise that Wills are publicly available documents.   In fact, if you want a copy of the Will you can write to, “In the High Court of Justice the Probate Registry of Wales” and request from the Probate Registrar a copy of the Will of John Freer who died on 4th day of May 2011.

Carl Freer’s achievements

So what has Carl Freer achieved?

He has/had:-

  • 3 public companies which have collapsed;
  • Dozens of bankrupt companies;
  • Fraud convictions, fines and jail sentences;
  • Many millions of Dollars in Judgements against him;
  • Scores of staff and investors who retch at the mere mention of his name;
  • Carl Freer’s Affiliation is Detailed Herein

    Dozens of people who hate him;

  • Authorities in the USA, Denmark and France who are actively pursuing him;
  • And some pissed off dons.

Carl Freer does not have much to look forward to.  He knows the authorities are going to catch up to him soon.  The new case in the USA is a genuine threat, and the Danes are hot on his heels.  While life in Dubai may seem like fun at times, it is where he helped orchestrate the IT Factory hundred million dollar fraud 10 years ago, and it is where he ripped off the PLO for $20 million.

He faces threats on every hand.  Who will get him first?  Some self-respecting Muslim avenging the fraud on the PLO?  The American justice system?  The Dons for whom he has failed to deliver?  The French?

Interpol has been informed of his whereabouts, and his hosts in Dubai are getting weary of the noise surrounding him and his abuse of his Wasta (Royal family protection).

And . . . maybe the tossing and turning of his Father in his grave is finally starting to haunt Carl Freer.

It’s time to hit the road again Carl.

 

UNLOCKED: 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.
