When incontrovertible public proof of Carl Freer’s lies and fraudulent conduct become ever more readily available, it may be time for the Singaporean civil service – whose standards of probity, nationally and locally, are of the highest order – to review the contents of Carl Freer’s Employment Pass – Part 8 – Declaration By Foreign Employee – HAVE YOU EVER: been convicted in a court of law in any country? Yes or No.
It is undisputed that Carl Freer has been convicted for Fraud in Sweden and in Germany – it would be inexcusable not to review the application documents for Carl Freer’s employment pass and now permanent residency to ensure accurate answers were provided.
Individuals convicted on fraud charges in two different countries – arrested in five different countries – had international search warrant issued against them – who have used aliases to conceal their true identity – who have court judgements against them totalling millions of dollars – lied publicly to create a favourable image – being repeatedly named in the book Svensk Maffia (Swedish Mafia) – connected to the largest fraud in Danish history – IT Factory.
Singaporeans – polite – ever trusting – expecting others to match their highest standards of probity in financial and personal matters – expect the Ministry of manpower Systems for detecting untruthful statements to work in order to safeguard all Singaporeans – a review of the documentation submitted will help to identify any misunderstandings.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Good stories are used by Carl Freer to rake in funds from investors – look at Gizmodo – Aluminaid – GetFugu . . . all the previous failures
The evolving Watstock story has so many parallels with the Gizmondo debacle it is mesmerizing to watch.
Amazing technology – leaps and bounds ahead of its time – blows the competition away – endorsements from the top people in the field – riches beyond belief – strategic partnerships – sign up here.
A good story is currency and Carl Freer spends that currency fast. Remember how they say it went down with Gizmondo – even to the extent of faking the signature of the head of Microsoft Gaming to impress investors.
“. . . [We] formed strategic partnerships with firms that would elevate its profile: Microsoft, Samsung, NVIDIA, Toys ‘R’ Us, MTV, and Ogilvy Public Relations.
. . . “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.
“The alleged misconduct is supported by court findings: both Ogilvy PR, who Gizmondo hired to boost hype, and MTV eventually sued Gizmondo for breach of contract, alleging they were never paid for services rendered.
“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.
One of the safeguards that you have is Due Diligence so contact Professor Huang Guangbin – and other companies associated with Carl Freer – and ask some questions – if you’re satisfied, invest your money or work for the company – if not – thank your fairy godmother that you did not fall victim – but had the good sense to ask the right questions.
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 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.
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.
In his mind Carl Freer is Perfect – a Paragon of Perfection
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?
The story about Manches was first published in the Gazette in the UK, detailing how a top UK law firm was outsmarted by Carl Freer.
Manches, a prestigious UK law firm, failed to understand the nature and character of Carl Freer – their lack of due diligence and their casual documentation lead to the largest lost of fees in its history.
All Law firms dealing with Carl Freer should do so with utmost caution – demanding large retainers prior to the commencement of work, and never, ever, working beyond the value of the retainer.
This debacle was a contributing factor in the firm’s downfall – some of the smartest legal brains have been victims of the narrative of huge profits – that the funds have been transferred which never turn up and if they do they are late and less than expected. Just check the article on his ‘philanthropic’ donation to the King’s Medical Research Trust.
Others have learned lessons – in order that you don’t have to suffer the same outcome. (See new article to learn how he scammed another lawyer by claiming his father had died!)
When doing business with Carl Freer and his companies you should ask for a full and detailed disclosure of ALL the legal entities, internationally, he has created or been affiliated with, past and present. If you don’t it’s more than likely you’re going to GetFugu’d. Royally Fugu’d!
Below is a short list of people and companies that gave their trust and services to Carl Freer’s Getfugu Inc in America. They didn’t do due diligence and they got fugu’d.
Since that failure, Carl Freer has established himself in Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam. Numerous companies have been incorporated – some of them are all ready in legal disputes and named in court proceedings. Link.

Remember – this is just one company and it is not a complete list. Similar can be found in other companies – the challenge would be to find of Carl Freer‘s companies that does not have messes stuck to it. He is no Angel.
We told you about the multi-million dollar donation scams Carl Freer pulled on the King’s Medical Research Trust and on Georgia Tech University. The scams where he made promises of multi-million dollar donations, and used the resulting good PR to get more credibility with investors. The scam being that he never donated anything – he had what he wanted – the press release and the prestige – free of charge.
What do they get out of it; a stained reputation for not doing the due diligence on a convicted fraudster and documented liar. Is there another university or charity that has suffered due to the promises of Carl Freer? We are continuing our enquiries, if you know of one please pass on the information.
The scam worked twice before – why not do it again?
This time the victim was to be Canterbury University in New Zealand – and the assailant – Carl Freer in the guise of – Media Power. (Great article on his guises and how to identify him.)
Multi-Million dollar donation to Canterbury University – accepted without due diligence
NEW YORK, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ — The Media Power Group, a leading innovator in the global mobile media market, today announced a private grant of $2 million to Canterbury University in New Zealand. The grant is dedicated to the University’s Human interface technology laboratory research center with the mission of increasing the current available research and education dedicated to Augmented Reality (AR) and mobile computing technologies. This announcement comes on the heels of a recent pledge by The Media Power Group of $5 million to Georgia Tech University’s Graphic Visualization Usability Centre. [Ed: This is the same Media Power as covered in this video, and linked to the missing IT Factory millions].
Professor Mark Billinghurst, Director of the HIT Lab NZ at University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is a pioneer in Augmented Reality (AR) and is focused on creating, together with Media Power, one of the largest AR teams worldwide and plans to leverage the grant to conduct further research and develop various applications. To date, Professor Billinghurst and his team have previously spearheaded advances which brought Augmented Reality to mobile devices.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to collaborate with Media Power and their other academic partners. Media Power have collected together some of the best AR researchers in the world and we are proud to be able to work with them on bringing this technology into the mainstream,” said Professor Billinghurst on the announcement of the grant.
“Previously only viable in the research labs, Augmented Reality is one of the most exciting and promising technologies today,” stated Rich Jenkins, CEO of Media Power. “Media Power is commercializing the technology and plans to make it available to everyone. By leveraging AR, Media Power creates an entirely new advertising paradigm for marketers, and media buyers to reach consumers worldwide as well as enhancing user experience on the handset.”

When applying for an American Visa it is required by Law to provide full and honest answers. Would Carl Freer have the gall to scam the US Government?
The Scandinavian Media have previously, extensively, exposed Carl Freer’s criminal behaviour. They say that he had been arrested in 4 countries, had been fighting an International Warrant for his arrest issued by the German Authorities and had secured bail in the UK on financial terms. The Warrant was set aside after 3 years and a Court date in Strassburg had been set. (Article here with links to media, and translations thereof.) (Also – Carl Freer got arrested in the US – taking it to arrests in 5 countries.)
All of these actions were prior to Carl Freer’s Visa Application and there is a simple question to be answered on the application. It has a ‘yes or no’ answer.
That question is, as you can read below on his visa application at point 38;-
“Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offence or crime, even though subject if a pardon, amnesty, or other similar legal action?”
On Carl Freer’s Application – in responses to a question asked by the US Government – a question that has to be answered honestly – he answered, “No”. He chose not to disclose an honest account of his previous arrests or his conviction on 2 counts of fraud in Sweden.
If there is another explanation, we would like to hear it. We can publish these documents as the Passport belonged to the Swedish Authorities, the Visa and the Application form are owned by the American Authorities and US Government.
This information plus the documentation given to us will be forwarded to the Immigration Services and Homeland Security for their review.
Below is an excerpt from the first page of the application so you can verify it is his application.
