Carl Freer is too old to play this game any longer – a dinosaur in the cutting edge new tech field. He dyes his hair, he does high fives, he tries to talk the talk, but everyone in the industry knows he is faking it. And so does the general public it seems.
Take his latest technology release – the technology that can tell the future, that can make a millionaire out of anyone, that replaces the need to think. Watstock – Remember that?
The one that had a huge countdown timer ticking its way to release. The one that, instead of launching, morphed into Hotstock with a new countdown timer ticking away. When that timer hit zero it all just fizzled away. It simply died. No morphing. No launch. No fanfare. No party. Nothing. Not even a coffin or proper burial.
Here is a link to the site (http://www.watstock.com/) and above is a screen grab of the site taken 2 minutes ago. It announces that Watstock will launch on Oct 1st. Today is the last day of October – where is the launch? How smart is this company? It can’t even predict the month it is going to launch. Its genius founder can’t even be bothered to update the site. (Of course he will do something now that we have posted this. But what does he change the launch date to? November 1st – it is upon us already. Maybe December 1st?)
Investors, backers, collaborators – all have walked away. And so have the public. Only a few were silly enough to download the app – one that was to have made millionaires out of them. Another testimony of failure is this link – https://twitter.com/Hotstockmobile This killer app has two tweets and two followers. We kept a screenshot – below.
Like every Carl Freer venture, the whole thing was a scam – its failure was part of its conception. It joins the last 14 or so “ground-breaking” ventures that Carl Freer has launched – all of which have common denominators of “failure” and “Carl Freer.”
At 47 years old and with 3 failed public companies (Tiger Telematics, Xero Mobile and Getfugu); 15 failed businesses; millions in unpaid judgments; a history as a documented liar; 3 convictions and the need to be continually on the run from the French police, this serial fraudster is an old man in a young man’s game.
Rather than face reality and deal with the fact that at 47 he is too old, Carl Freer has decided to reinvent himself.
The serial fraudster has turned to someone who describes himself as a serial entrepreneur – Chris Reed of Black Marketing.
Chris Reed is the self-proclaimed guru of personal branding. The same age as Carl Freer, Chris Reed is obviously much younger as he sports a mohawk. Carl Freer has become a client.
While we are not sure what the magic is that Chris Reed sells, we can categorically state that truth, common sense, logic, honesty, perceptiveness, and intelligence are NOT core attributes.
Chris Reed has provided an endorsement to assist Carl Freer in repositioning him as a thought leader within an industry – you can now read articles in Singapore Business Review – you can look at Carl Freer’s many videos on youtube where he ponders the future of technology – or read the many promotional bloggers testimonies touting Carl Freer’s greatness. It is all lies – told to hide a sordid truth – fake news with the intention to deceive others. How can Black Marketing operate in Singapore when it’s business is misleading people?
When we unequivocally demonstrated to Chris Reed that Carl Freer is a criminal (an undeniable fact as the primary source were three court judgements) Chris Reed then claimed that Carl Freer is not a criminal in Singapore and maintained his endorsement of Carl Freer – hence you can still read in the Singapore Business Review, Carl Freer’s articles as a contributing editor.
Criminal are criminals. The fact that they move somewhere else does not change that fact. A serial killer from Chicago does not change that fact when he moves to Sydney. A serial fraudster, convicted in 3 countries and arrested in 5, does not suddenly become cured when he moves to Singapore. Singapore is simply the next target. Relocating criminals does not cure them – Australia is evidence of that.
Confronted with the stupidity and immorality of his continued endorsement of Carl Freer, Chris Reed then claimed that Carl Freer is not a client – after just saying he was.
So amazed were we by Chris Reed’s willingness to dodge the truth and endorse a proven criminal, that we decided to check him out – It seems Black Marketing is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Media Group plc which seems to have its own set of troubles. Interestingly it also has a Swedish link – just like Carl Freer.
“The Disciplinary Committee of Nasdaq Stockholm has found that The Marketing Group PLC has breached the regulations of Nasdaq First North (“the Rule Book”) in several respects and, accordingly, has imposed a fine on The Marketing Group amounting to two annual fees, corresponding to an amount of SEK 595,546.”
Mangold are the appointed Swedish adviser. Maybe Mangold could assist Black Marketing and Chris Reed to understand the notoriety of Carl Freer in the Scandinavian media – where he has been described as a hardened criminal, linked to the Mafia, a fraudster still being investigated for his role in the IT factory scandal in Denmark.
In the meanwhile investors, banks, lawyers, police, immigration officials and anyone who ought to have common sense, are advised to be on the lookout for Carl Freer, and exercise their professional curiosity and civil duty by asking one simple question – did Carl Freer provide a false declaration to live and work in Singapore – we say he did – it’s up to others to start questioning.
Carl Freer incorporated a number of companies in 2017, however he is focused on 3 – Intelligentia PTE Ltd – Watopedia PTE Ltd – Watstock PTE Ltd – we urge you to look at the websites – identify the promises – then ask what exactly is the product.
Then search the terms –
Carl Freer + Watstock or Carl Freer + Watopedia or Carl Freer + hotstock
Normally you will find us – we provided additional background and contact details of organisations and individuals who will provide accurate accounts of Carl Freer criminal history.

Do some due diligence
The following people should be wary of dealing with Carl Freer
Investors, shareholders, banks, landlords, staff members, ex-staff, service providers, creditors, public relations firms, accountants, company secretaries, solicitors, Government ministers, police and judges – all of whom have collectively failed to share information on Carl Freer’s criminal activities and all of whom have been victims of his lies and frauds.
If you fall into any of the above categories, Carl Freer counts on the fact that you will not read this – that you will not look him up.
There can be no opinion about whether Carl Freer is a criminal or not. It is a fact. Three different courts, in three different countries, have adjudicated that Carl Freer is a criminal. (Links are below.)
The last of these courts was the French Court of Cassation – the highest court in France, and a court with the highest of reputations internationally.
Carl Freer had taken his case there in an attempt to get an earlier conviction overthrown.
On Wednesday, 25 January 2012, the Court of Cassation heard the appeal by Carl Freer’s attorneys. After examining the evidence and considering the matter the panel of judges issued their verdict as detailed above – guilty of fraud, sentenced to 2 year jail term and fined €50,000. An arrest warrant is active.
Links to all of this are provided below. As much of this is in foreign languages, we provide a brief overview of the relevant data in the hope that it may assist you.
THE SWEDISH FRAUD
The first conviction was in Sweden on 10/10/1989. As an 18 year old Carl Freer had forged signatures to defraud Scandinavian Private Bank (SE Banken) out of 212,772.40 SEK.
Prosecutor: Sandström, Göran, District Prosecutor Stockholm District.
After his Swedish arrest Carl Freer moved to Vallauris, France, where he registered his new company called Well Com Motors located in Nice with other branches in St. Maxime and Cannes. Carl Freer specialised in secondhand luxury cars, which involved further criminal activity – this time acquiring stolen exotic cars, smuggling them to Germany, Spain and France, and selling them from his company, Well Com Motors, using the alias of Brian Littlejohn.
Carl Freer was arrested in France and promptly fled to England. An International arrest warrant was issued and he spent 4 years in the UK fighting extradition to Germany.
I have attached a translation of the German case prepared by the public prosecutors office. The bill of indictment provides the background of the case. Carl Freer German Judgement
Carl Freer was charged at that time with crimes that some say he still does to this very day: Namely, “Damaging the financial position another for gain by fraudulent representation or distortion or concealment of the true facts thereby causing or maintaining a mistake with the intention of obtaining an unlawful pecuniary advantage for himself or for a third party.”
The Stuttgart public prosecutor, said this of Carl Freer – “the accused will be convicted of the offences as a result of this said evidence, and what very definitely speaks against him is the fact that he used a false name, and that after the cheque’s were dishonoured he disappeared”.
Carl Freer even admitted in an official filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that he has a criminal record. He of course tries to explain it away as a “mistake” or an “injustice” – but the fact is that he admits that he has been convicted.
His statement in the SEC filing reads: “In October 2005, Mr.Freer was sentenced to probation and fined by a Court in Germany, for buying four luxury cars with the a check, though Mr Freer contended he had canceled the checks after believing the cars did not have proper title and immediately informed the authorities. Upon being informed that only one of the four cars had a title issue, Mr. Freer resubmitted the check.” (Needless to say, if that were the truth Carl Freer would not have been been found guilty of a crime and sentenced).
Here is the link to the SEC website showing the filing in its entirety.
When you get that page, Click on item v165106_8k.htm and go down the page to the heading “Director” where you will find the statement.
THE FRENCH FRAUD
As covered above Carl Freer was also convicted in France, with the conviction being fully and finally ratified by the highest Court in France. The panel of judges ordered a 2 year jail sentence, a €50,000 fine, and issued a warrant for his arrest.
I provide links below. One goes to the French Court’s web page where the judgement is posted in French; the Second goes to the court provided translation into English.
Due to the French privacy laws, Carl Freer is referred to as “Mr. Carl X, A National of Sweden.”
One can tell that this is Carl Freer as it talks about the matters openly discussed in the German case. The French judgement references, “the conviction pronounced by the German courts,” including, “Mr.X’s alias.” Court papers also refer to, “the fact that for a luxury car sales professional who operated Well Com Motors under the false name.” The cross reference with the German case included Carl Freer alias of Brian Littlejohn. Furthermore French privacy laws do not extend to corporate identities, therefore Carl Freer’s registered company, Well Com Motors, is named in these proceedings, and the German proceedings.
Here are relevant excerpts from the case.
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 byissuing 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 aluxury 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;
The three court cases above provide the proof you requested in relation to Carl Freer’s criminality.
Please take the opportunity to check the information, and then double-check it.
You are a respected media outlet, you have resources available to undertake your enquiries and we urge you to do so immediately.
You have been targeted by Carl Freer as he needs your endorsement to camouflage his true character, and allow him to perpetrate a new fraud. You’re no longer in a state of ignorance and upon examination of the facts your professional curiosity, along with your civil curiosity, will no doubt allow you to conclude that Carl Freer provided a false declaration on the documents submitted to gain a work permit and residency in Singapore.
Doing nothing at this point is not an option. Endorsing him, wittingly or unwittingly, is aiding and abetting a criminal.
Finally – we invite you to examine the due diligence information on the CarlFreer-scammer website. Carl Freer has not been slow to attack those courageous enough to highlight his criminality. He has previously issued defamation proceedings in Iceland – the proceedings fell at the first hurdle as he had lied to his own solicitors. Since defamation was something he couldn’t follow through, he then opted for harassment – through the Singapore courts we receive a monthly notice along with several individuals included in this process.
Perhaps the best series of articles illuminating his criminal character are these – They are interesting, well researched and well-written and provide an clear insight onto the person your organisation has associated with. Each article links to the next:
