Professor Huang Guangbin – associated with the convicted fraudster Carl Freer?

Professor Huang Guangbin’s ELM (Extreme Learning Machines technology) is a key feature of the Watstock algorithms and operations.

We have contacted the Prof and he does not deny the relationship

Carl Freer tells people that “they” have spent 8 years and thousands of hours perfecting its ability to correctly predict stock movements with an 80% or greater accuracy.

While much is made of this technology on the site – reference to Professor Huang Guangbin would seem to have been removed along with his picture and bio.

If you are considering investing or working for Watstock PTE Ltd – you should consider contacting the Professor to find out the true story of his involvement.  Read the article we have on it.

After all – It is his professional credibility and technology that has been used to profile – and promote – the Watstock website and product.

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 – 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?

Top UK Law Firm Manches  -v- Carl Freer

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!)

Manches Loss Carl Freer’s Gain

Don’t GetFugu’d – Protect Yourself with Due Diligence

Who wouldn’t trust a face like this – trust me – lots of people have

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.

Cases against GetFugu

The List below is an example of what can be found if you research court files – please undertake your own research to confirm the accuracy.   And this is just one company . . .  and this is not even a complete list.   Here is an article with are some of his other US companies.

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.

 

If This Multi-Million Dollar Donation Scam Worked Twice Before, It Will Work Like a Charm the Third Time

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.)

Here is a link to an article by Sam Savage – dated 1 August 2008.

The Press Release About the Multimillion Dollar Scam
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.

Did Carl Freer Have The Gall to Scam The US Government?

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?”

 

Carl Freer checks off the “No” box in answer to whether or not he had ever been arrested.

 

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.

 

Carl Freer’s USA Visa – check the passport number here with the Visa Application below. Look at the date it is issued.

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.

Check the name and the passport number against the Visa.

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.

Carl Freer Donation Scam Applied To Georgia Tech

He just had to do the King’s Medical Trust donation scam on Georgia Tech

After successfully scamming the King’s Medical Research Trust with the promise of a large donation that was never to be realised, Carl Freer had to do the donation scam again – why not – worked once and so should work again.  Promise lots of money – lots of press releases about your largess and generosity – use the improved reputation to dupe gullible investors to further your own ends – keep the lie alive by continuing to claim to be a philanthropist.

This time it was to be a sizeable donation to Georgia Tech for research into augmented reality – false reality/augmented reality – is there a difference in Carl Freer’s mind?

Here is $5 Million for research – Oh, it didn’t materialise – well that’s the harsh reality – but why not augment that reality and see if you can’t make it simply appear  – Can’t do that? – can’t magic money out of thin air?  – Carl can – he made a $5 Million donation to you and you bought it – or was that just an illusion?

The story of this generous and benevolent donation is oft told by the media – more often told by Mr Freer – when he is trying to impress new victims investors.

No Due Diligence with Carl Freer . . .  Get Stained

It is not as though Carl Freer was an unknown gangster in 2008.  Simple due diligence would have revealed enough of his past crimes – arrests – failings – theft – to raise a red flag or two – and yet Georgia Tech – a proud and highly regarded institute – which hadn’t received enough money to even buy a bottle of detergent – was left trying to scrub out the stains of its association with Carl Freer.

That is the problem with stains – they don’t come out – that is why they are called stains.

If you don’t want to be Freer stained, do some due diligence on Carl.  Confirm the above – contact Georgia Tech and ask them about his donation scam.
