Carl Freer incorporated The Freer Family Tree Foundation which has been soliciting for donations without relevant permits – the Information provided by Carl Freer’s Charity Foundation is verified to be bogus. The complaint additionally highlights the fact that the Fund-raiser is ambiguous or unable to provide answers to queries on the fundraising (e.g. uses of funds received and name of the beneficiary.)
The Foundation’s chairman is Carl Freer and he uses the Foundation as a self-promotional tool. He has paid for articles and press releases claiming that he is a Billionaire philanthropist and humanitarian – articles that aid and assist in hiding the truth about Carl Freer’s true criminal character.
We decided to file this complaint in response to the latest barrage of threats of violence. We know Carl Freer to be a Mafia connected criminal; a fugitive from justice who likes to issue death threats.
On the one hand he threatens violence – on the other he claims to be a billionaire philanthropist who loves to help needy orphans. The two do not go together.
The Singaporean commissioners of charities have been asked to look into Carl Freer’s eligibility newly, with accurate facts to hand, to determine if he is a fit and proper person to be running a Foundation – let alone a Foundation which, in its own video claims to be, “The world’s first cloud sourcing campaign site.”
(Weren’t Watstock and Hotstock the ‘world’s first’ as well? Aren’t all of Carl Freer’s scams introduced as “world’s first”? Watopedia, Watgold, Petrofinde, Intelligentia . . .)
Carl Freer’s Foundation says it, “works with organisations, homes, shelters and orphanages throughout the world.” This message has been repeated for the past 4 years . . . however we have not identified one organisation, shelter or orphanage that has actually worked with or benefitted from Carl Freer’s humanity. And he himself – despite so many self-promoting press releases and videos – has failed to name a single one.
The Freer Family Tree Foundation is a Nonprofit Organization. Its Linkedin page publicly states it has 6 followers as of today’s date.
Despite only having 6 followers, the promotional video claims it has links in the social media network of over 2 million followers. It also claims to have a shop where you can purchase relief supplies at cost. It also claims they are growing a global network. Claims that are belied by the fact that the only factual evidence available is the LinkedIn page of six followers.
Carl Freer is a convicted serial fraudster – Carl Freer is not a billionaire – Carl Freer is not a philanthropist – he is not a humanitarian. Professional scepticism should be adopted when reading material produced by his hand, or paid for and distributed by his publicists.
Here is a small list of puff pieces paid for and posted by Carl Freer.
When we contacted the Commissioners of Charities in regards to filing the complaint, we were thanked and informed, “You are going to have people who enter the charity sector for self-promotion and less than honest reasons – it’s simply a fact of life – the task is to keep exposing them and their misconduct to those who are looking for the truth. A fraudster running a foundation asking for donations – this sounds highly irregular.”
Like any other sector, charities are not immune to criminal abuse from fraudsters. Fraud poses a serious risk to valuable funds and can damage the good reputation of Singapore charities, affecting public trust and confidence in the sector as a whole. Equally important is encouraging a culture of professional scepticism – everyone is encouraged to play their part in stopping fraud and to come forward with any concerns.
Fund-raiser is ambiguous or unable to provide answers to queries on the fundraising (e.g. uses of funds received and name of the beneficiary)
Charity or organisation is soliciting for donations without the relevant permit
Commercial or third-party fundraiser is unable to show proof that they are authorised by charity to raise funds
There is reason to believe that the funds raised are being misused
Now that this foundation has been exposed – let’s see how long it takes for the website to come down – for the foundation to reinvent itself – this foundation provides further evidence that no one is safe from Carl Freer’s greed and self-importance.
He is not a trillionaire either in case anyone fell for that lie.
Carl Freer Due Diligence will always come up with the fact that he has been convicted of Fraud in 3 different countries, by 3 different courts.
Warning: If you do not want to know the truth about Carl Freer – DO NOT READ THIS. You can never un-know what you will read. You will never be able to claim ignorance again. This is due diligence.

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:
The Singaporean Chapter of the Irish Chamber of Commerce invited a serial fraudster to give a lecture – and even charged its members to hear it – on a subject he knows nothing about!
This is not a joke – it really happened.
That is right. Some dolt (that’s an ancient Irish word for a dumb klutz) booked a three times convicted, fugitive from justice, criminal businessman to lecture members of the Irish Chamber of Commerce – on how to be an “Entrepreneur!”
Really – With all the Leaders of Industry in Singapore who are trustworthy and deserving of respect, how on earth did anyone manage to decide that Carl Freer was worth listening to? They got defrauded. The Irish Chamber of Commerce is another notch on Carl Freer’s belt – another institution he has scammed.
Well, it seems that either the Serial Fraudster Carl Freer is about to repeat the scam, or the Asian Summit organisers are as gullible as the Irish Chamber of Commerce. Because, believe it or not, Carl Freer is scheduled to be a speaker at the Asia Summit 2017. http://www.millennial20-20.com/singapore2017/speakers/
I am not sure what the ancient Singaporean word for dumb klutz is – but someone has not done their homework. We will of course contact the event organisers and highlight his criminal background.
It seems that out of the 30+ individuals who paid for the morning lecture – none of them chose to look up Carl Freer on the Internet – a Google search would have exposed Carl Freer. Maybe the millennial20-20 organisers will find time to conduct their own Google search – we recommend Scandinavian media reports or the many links on this site which highlight crimes.
Carl Freer views events such as talking to the Irish Chamber of Commerce and Asian Summit as valuable endorsements of him as a businessman.
Those within his current circle (i.e. Bankers, PR firms, Solicitors, and Investors) never trouble themselves to research his background with the diligence that should be the hallmark of professionals – they seem to repeat verbatim Carl Freer false accounts of his history and wealth as one would expect any dupe to do.
They have been beguiled, and their stupefied combined silence and inaction lends Carl Freer a facade of credibility. People look at those associated with him and figure that Carl Freer must be honourable. (When the scam is over the PR Firms, Lawyers and Investors try sue him as they wake up to the fact that they have not been paid, and he laughs about it and moves onto a new set of “professionals” to garner credence.)
Just as a quick exercise, look at how he has set up the Asian Summit scam. Look closely at these little cameos. They have a photo of the person; they state that person’s position; and name the company they work for.
Now look at Carl Freer’s cameo. It says Founder Watstock and Contributor – and then has the Singapore Business Review logo.
If you just glanced at it you would think he works for Singapore Business Review.
If you click on him you realise you are looking at a press release that he wrote and got published in Singapore Business Review. He doesn’t work for the Singapore Business Review. He scammed them. And the press release he wrote – lies, falsehoods, untruths, delusion, devilspeak.
And yet – after the event is over (and in fact even now) Carl Freer will try make it look like he was a key speaker at, and endorsed by, the Asian Summit. We will have a selfie with him in front of their banner. And that somehow makes him OK.
What Should Carl Freer Lecture On?
Carl Freer defrauds people. He cons people out of money. In addition to the criminal convictions he has for fraud, there are many civil cases with tens of millions of judgements against him, and an army of irate people.
Carl Freer spends the majority of each day mollifying people he owes money to. He is hounded on daily basis by friends, ex-friends and associates that he has scammed (he has no principles and will even scam “friends”. He actually has no friends).
These are not the hundreds of people that have judgements against him after successfully suing him. These are the people who have his current contact details and who could get very nasty indeed if he was not so good with his tongue.
Each day he has to call people up and tell them; that he is just about to hit the jackpot; his count-down timer is running; he is nearly there; he can taste the money; they are next on the list to be repaid; he won’t let them down; he is their friend; he hasn’t forgotten them; and . . .
Carl Freer should lecture on Fraud. How to con people. How to weasel one’s way into the pocketbooks of the gullible. How to smooth talk judges and police and immigration officers. How to get a visa and citizenship by lying. How to twist any truth into a convincing lie. How to impress the impressionable by exploiting the ineptitude of Patent Offices with re-inventions. How to set up Foundations, Charities and Trusts as mechanisms to facilitate an image as a Humanitarian, without indulging in a single charitable or selfless act. How to be accoladed as Philanthropist without ever donating a cent. These are the things he is good at. They all involve dishonesty.
Carl Freer should not lecture on entrepreneurship. He cannot point to a single successful venture he has created – so what does he know about entrepreneurship? Entrepreneurship has been described as the “capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit.”
Name ONE company that Carl Freer owned which made a profit. We ask because that company doesn’t exist in public records anywhere in America, Europe or the Far East. There is not one single company that would entitle Carl Freer to be described as an entrepreneur. The word that describes him is Fraud. If you tire of hearing that one try Cheat, Swindler, Grifter, Welcher, Scammer, Shyster, Beguiler or just good old Criminal.
Carl Freer Does Have a Sense of Humour
When he spoke to the Irish Chamber of Commerce, part of his lecture was on Principles! This is really funny. Check this video where he admits to Georgia Tech – when he was scamming them – that he has no principles.
Check out these photos of his boat and cars – he was having fun in California as his “Venture” collapsed in the UK. Investor money bought that boat, bought the multi million dollar house, bought the plane and funded that lifestyle.
Investor money didn’t buy the cars. He stole those.
Principles? No – he has none as he freely admits.
Replace “Venture” with “Fraud” and you will begin to understand Carl Freer. Read this series of articles – they provide entertaining insight into this deviant.
Carl Freer made the Irish look stupid for not conducting due diligence.
Determined not to be outdone the Millennial 2020 organisers for the Asia Summit 2017 have also booked a 3 time convicted fugitive fraudster to speak at their Summit.
Carl Freer is packing his bags for his next break at Amilla Fushi – located in the Maldives. This is a little piece of paradise where the rich and famous go to relax and have fun.
Carl Freer has worked his magic and befriended Amilla Fushi’s Chairman, Michael Flynn and its Manager, Mark Hehir as well as most of the senior Staff. With his well rehearsed cordiality Carl Freer swans into the Resort where he is viewed as a well liked and respected Guest due to the frequency of his visits.
Surrounded by the beautiful and tranquil environment, and with the fawning support of duped Staff, the props are in place. The emboldened Carl Freer sets about finding his new “Investors”.
Most people pack their holiday bags to relax – but not Carl Freer. His laptop is pre-loaded with presentations of the ‘next big thing,’ along with the most important document – his version of due diligence on himself.
In the restaurants he orders food and wine without regard for the price. The best of the best, cooked to his own standard, no butter, no oil. Over long evenings of lighthearted conversations with other Guests he drops hints of his successes and his wealth. He prepares the Amilia’s Guests by confessing that he has enemies and these enemies are jealous of his talents and his successful life. Stories pour from his lips like sweet syrup with a chorus of name dropping . . . Bill and Hilary Clinton, Michael Milkin, Sting, Leonardo Di Caprio, David Beckham and Paris Hilton will all play their roles in his tales of success. By the end his listeners will be seduced – he has delivered the perfect narrative and convinced one and all that they have found their perfect friend. One of the most trustworthy and genuine people in the world, a gifted mind who will share his contacts and his success. During the day you often see him high-fiving bartender friend SK while enjoying a waterpipe and vodka-based cocktail. With a warm smile he’s an easy to get on with guy, approachable and friendly – what’s not to like.
What the Amilla Fushi Guests are unaware of is that when Carl Freer goes on holiday he is there to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, and his primary target is the rich as they may be gullible enough in their relaxed state of mind to unquestionably believe him whilst he is in full flow. In order to support his narrative Carl Freer carries his own due diligence pack – a compilation of falsehoods and obfuscations designed to confound and confuse those who unearth less than savoury details about the man who just presented himself as their personal saviour.
Carl Freer rails against what he calls “black PR” or “Internet character assassination”. He claims he is being attacked by people who misrepresent facts, who are jealous of him, who just want to see him fail.
In his “due diligence pack” Carl Freer has a letter from his mother. It claims that his first conviction was all a misunderstanding about a student loan. It was a misdemeanour. He shows it to people with great pathos on his face – willing them to believe him. And the gullible do.
The fact is that fraud is not a misdemeanour – it is a crime. His crime has nothing to do with a student loan. The judge spelled out very clearly the details of the crime and adjudicated that Carl Freer was guilty of a criminal act.
Why would anyone accept the alleged letter of a mother – who would protect and forgive her son regardless – when this link and this link show the real story of the event as reported in the national papers in Sweden at the time. It had nothing too to with a student loan – it was just straight forward criminality.
The gullible guests, already semi-bewitched, are often too spellbound by Carl Freer to realise that it is not the Internet that has assassinated his character. There are 3 High Court Judges – in Sweden, Germany and France – each of whom, independently of the others, applying due process and looking only at the facts, adjudicated him to be a Criminal. That is what defines his character.
On top of that there is a ruling from the Court of Cassation in France – the country’s highest appeals court – wherein a panel of judges reviewed his case and determined that, based on the evidence, he is a criminal and MUST go to jail. Please take the time to read that ruling here. The translation was done by the French court and it details Carl Freer’s criminal activities, organised crime and Mafia connections, media connections and other salient facts about this would be saviour.
Interestingly, Carl Freer’s “Due Diligence Pack” says nothing about his outstanding arrest warrant – or anything about the many judgements against him.
Instead, it attempts to misdirect people. For example, by claiming that he was once referenced as the 698th Richest Person in the World with a net worth of US$1.1 billion – achieved by the age of 35. This would be a marvellous achievement if true – you may note the lack of detail in the reference he provides. This reference is supposedly provided by Forbes, the list actually says the collective net worth of the World’s 691 billionaires is $2.2 trillion. There were only 691 billionaires on the 2005 list not 698 as CF claims. Here is a link and there is no Carl Freer on that list. To make doubly sure you could check the 2006 list or the 2004 list or even better still contact Forbes, the Author of the 2005 billionaire list, and they will confirm that it only ran to 691.
Carl Freer is a convicted fraudster. He has been tried and found to be a criminal by a panel of judges in the highest court in France, and by 3 other courts. He lies about his wealth – something that he was doing in his teens as described in the very first judgement against him.
With the actual evidence available, why would anyone believe the other “evidence” in his “due diligence pack?”
After all he has a history for exaggerated claims. He states that the UK Liquidators of Gizmondo Europe Limited sold the intellectual property of the company to him (Carl Freer), and even boasts about the press release, issued on 13th May 2008, and asks the reader to accept this as a complete story.
What he fails to disclose is the money given to the Liquidators came directly from the largest fraud in Danish history – the IT Factory fraud.
The truth is the truth. It is an exact thing – there cannot be variations or versions of the truth.
You are invited to contact Mark Fry of Begbies Traynor, the Liquidator for Gizmondo Europe Limited. They hold a bankruptcy demand against Carl Freer for US$6 million – which he has failed to pay – for the so-called sale of intellectual property as mentioned in the press release he uses in his “due diligence pack.” (Mark Fry contact details Call: 020 7516 1500 Email: email@example.com)
The IT Factory Liquidator is Boris Frederiksen and he has an active investigation into Carl Freer. He can be contacted on: +45 72 30 72 22 or firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact page at www.kammeradvokaten.com.
Another red herring that amuses us is how he spends a great deal of time highlighting the “defamation” he suffered at the hands of the Law Firm Patton Boggs. We have even heard tales that his claim for five hundred million, when settled, will go straight to charities as he wants no personal benefit. How laudable – he surely picks up a few points to support his halo which such a statement. The sticky problem is that the settlement was a walkaway as Patton Boggs also had a substantial counter claim so not one single dollar found its way to the Charity.
The “due diligence pack” goes on to detail other similarly irrelevant events.
The bottom line is that if Carl Freer honestly disclosed:-
that he had been arrested in 5 countries,
convicted for fraud in 3 countries,
has an outstanding warrant for his arrest with a 2 year prison term awaiting him,
has defrauded previous investors of hundreds of millions,
still maintains links to the Mafia who are beneficiaries in his scams,
would Guests at the Amilla queue up to invest in him and his companies?
The most damaging things done to his character have been all the criminal activity, the fraud, the theft, the violence, the organised crime, the cheating, the lies. That is what defines his character. People pointing out the truth about him are not guilty of assassinating his character.
To assassinate Carl Freer’s character you would have to say that he was honest, clean living, cared for others, was as good as his word, honourable, never cheated anyone – and there is no one saying that on the Internet at all (except for Carl Freer himself).
As for the numerous businesses he says he has has sold, ask for a list, the price paid and if they are still in existence now. Again if he is so successful ask for half a dozen investors to provide references. Should be easy – if it is real.
So whilst you are sitting on the beach or swimming in the pool be aware that danger lurks – there really is a malevolent force at the Maldives.
He also claims that the FBI and SEC have not investigated him. We would like to comment on this but unfortunately there are tipping off rules in America and we cannot make any comment.
We can however mention the management for the resort, now armed with the above information, and ask what action are they going to take to safeguard the interests of their guests – or are they ok with having fraudsters and gangster commingling with their quests?
It may be in their best interests to ensure that Carl Freer’s bellowing laughter that echoes through the restaurants and bars is never heard there again.
One would think that IBM would have enough smarts not to go into partnership with a convicted felon and fraudster in HotStock – let alone with one that has already suckered and embarrassed them in the IT Factory flap.
Perhaps it is all just “human error.” And perhaps IBM Watson is asleep at the switch – it certainly doesn’t seem very ‘switched on’ as it is endorsing a known criminal and fraudster.
Perhaps there is something else at work – and perhaps you can figure out how IBM, and their flagship Artificial Intelligence incarnation “Watson” are seemingly so involved in a scam being fronted by a notorious criminal.
Maybe IBM Watson has simply been overwhelmed by one of the most gifted intellectuals of the century – see the article he wrote and the end of this post.
Here is the story so far.
When Carl Freer launches a scam he does so with a count down timer on the front of his site. It is a tool he uses to pressure the gullible into investing in the scam – one of many tools. It is a signature tool. It is something he ALWAYS does.
Usually it works well for him – people are told that if they haven’t paid their money by the time of the launch they will be big losers who will regret their stupidity forever.
Parents around the world use this trick daily to control children. “I told you to go to bed! I’m going to count to 5. One . . . Two . . . “ And the kids scurry off.
It is the pure genius of Carl Freer that he worked out that the same counting trick works on adults who have too much money and not enough sense. The gullible. Those in whom angst can be introduced by the simple act of counting.
Carl Freer had a count down clock for WatStock. Then we came along and told people to do some simple due diligence on the man – the kind of due diligence that one would think anyone would do.
We told people to look. Not believe what we say – just take a look at the available raw data. To look at things like the French Court of Cassation’s ruling that Carl Freer is a criminal and that he must go to jail. That is the highest appeal court. ( Read a translation – done by the Court – here).
The first big sign that people were waking up to who Carl Freer really is was when he missed his initial deadline to launch WatStock and had to reset his launch timer. That second timer ran for a while and then missed its deadline again.
Now the whole WatStock idea has been changed into HotStock – and a new countdown timer started up. Carl Freer hopes that once again people will be too gullible and stupid to question why, and will simply be mesmerised by the counting.
WatStock Fails and Morphs Into HotStock
When we started exposing Carl Freer’s scam, he was claiming loudly that a prestigious professor (and the leading name in ELM) was a Co-Founder and partner and had collaborated with him for 8 years in the development of his App. He also claimed that the professor’s University had collaborated.
The Professor’s publicly withdrawing all connection with WatStock delivered a serious blow to Carl Freer.
Just as he uses the counting trick, Carl Freer also uses the ‘endorsement trick’. And just like the counting trick, he does the endorsement trick every time. He ALWAYS claims support and endorsement from prestigious companies and firms to dupe people into falling for his schemes.
Carl Freer CANNOT sell his scams without riding on the genuine reputation of others. When he scammed hundreds of millions in the Gizmondo fraud, he forged signatures of Microsoft execs, showed false Bank references, fooled Ogilvie into supporting him, had a top UK law firm endorsing him, claimed to be a trustee of a prestigious trust – he will stop at nothing to use and abuse the good names of others to fill his pockets. Another Carl Freer hallmark.
With the Professor gone, a number of potential investors acting on sound and reasoned advice have all walked away from the opportunity of investing in WatStock hence the need to reset the time followed by the need to abandon ship and launch another.
A Brand New App From Carl Freer – HotStock – In Partnership With IBM
Not only that – IBM are also partners in HotStock. If IBM are partners with Carl Freer, then he must be trustworthy – right?
Carl Freer has done a great job of ensnaring IBM. What is mind boggling is that this is not the first time he has done so. IBM and Carl Freer crossed paths in the IT Factory scam – the largest scam in Danish history and one that tarnished IBM – especially in the Middle East
IBM have also collaborated with Carl Freer to create another product – called WatSharia. It encourages people in the Middle East to make money by investing and gambling in the stockmarket.
IBM taking a risk endorsing a criminal and scam artist seems rather ill-advised to us . . . but messing about with Sharia . . .
Perhaps it is only targeting Christians. But then why is it called WatSharia? If it was targeting Christians it would be called WatPsalm or something. Or maybe WatSon.
We leave the subtle nuances of international business and public relations to IBM. (For the record – we do not for one minute think that IBM are actually partnering with, endorsing, or associated with Carl Freer – they are simply the next in a long line of companies that have been duped by him.)
The Major Problems With HotStock
If you listen to the fountain of lies you may be lulled into thinking that it will truly provide riches for all.
However, just the slightest engagement of a single grey cell would tell you to walk away, even if you did not already know that Carl Freer has a 30 year history of scams and cons and that he knows nothing but cheating and lying.
If his App is so good, why would he let you use it? Why would he need investors?
If someone discovered a vein of pure gold running through their back yard, nuggets that could just be picked up by hand, would they tell everyone about it? Would they charge people $23.99 to go to the vein and pick up $1 Million in gold? Would they persuaded people to invest in heavy mining equipment if all that gold was just lying there waiting to be picked up?
If you believe Carl Freer his App is a money maker for everyone. If you believe him he has almost 10,000 followers on the Watstock Instagram.
However, if you look at the facts you will be disappointed with Carl Freer once again. Carl purchased 9,500 followers – they all joined within minutes of each other. Old move Carl – one that most people are wise to.
So let’s imagine it is the best App in the world and it actually can predict the future of the Stock Markets – It still has a few insurmountable problems.
Why do you have to buy it for $23.99 from Carl Freer himself? If he is such a nice guy that he will sell you a tool that will make you millions for such a petty price, why does he not just give it away? After all, he is a Humanitarian. Plus he must have so much money that it would cost him more to collect your $23.99 than he could make in the same time just picking up that gold himself.
And why do the investors only make money if millions of people download and rank the App? Investors are essentially investing into an empty App.
The whole point of the App, the reason it exists, is it predicts the future. And yet the small print says something else.
“Hotstock’s prediction prices are based on AI and forecasting models and the App does not guarantee a return.”
Are people really going to buy an App which predicts the future but doesn’t guarantee a return? How is that any better than using a horoscope, looking at bird entrails, or sacrificing a goat to some oracle?
People have been selling the “Foretelling The Future” scam since before dinosaurs roamed the earth. It is the oldest scam going.
Instead of thinking that a serial criminal may have finally cracked the code of the universe, look instead to what can be easily proven as his accomplishments. He has left a trail of broken dreams and ruined lives behind him. The evidence is overwhelming. He has been arrested in 5 different countries. He is a wanted International Criminal.
Any potential investor in HotStock would do well to look at the facts surrounding Carl Freer, and using human analytics figure out what the likely outcome is for him.

If you have satisfied yourself thus far, look into the company structure. Records are publicly available.
Watopedia, Watgold, Petrofinde, Hotstock, Katching and Watstock are controlled by Carl Freer. The trademark for Watstock is being registered in a different company called Watstock Inc. All company structures have been arranged to hide as much as possible and protect Carl as much as possible.
The facts are that Carl Freer’s companies operate from a temporary serviced office address to give him validity – the Companies are less than a year old – have not filed accounts – have no notable assets as the technology used is open source.
If you still cannot see the light – then read and enjoy this article Carl Freer wrote about himself. (Link to a PDF of the below)
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?
Carl Johan Freer (DOB May 19th, 1970) first came to broad public attention in 2005, boasting of his inherited wealth, his self made business empire and his accomplishemnts.
Freer had neither wealth nor empire, but he was an accomplished liar. A scammer.
He represented himself as coming from a wealthy Swedish family with a background of commercial success and inherited riches. He further claimed that his own business successes had resulted in his amassing a fortune.
So adept at lying was he, that spellbound journalists reported his own false narcissistic narrative verbatim.
His silver tongue duped Bankers and Investors, who never troubled to research his background with the diligence that should be the hallmark of professionals. They too became bewitched and repeated verbatim Carl Freer’s false accounts of his pedigree and successes.
Firms of Solicitors and Attorneys who acted for him, if they knew his true history (and surely they must have done), were apparently indifferent to the facts, and encouraged the enchanted Bankers and Investors into giving him their valuable endorsements.
Astonishingly, all of these professionals failed in their basic duty to cause proper enquiries to be made about Carl Freer, and blindly accepted him as genuine – with nightmare results. (Check out what happened to Manches – a top UK Law Firm)
Monday Productions, a Danish company, produced a six part documentary which prominently featured Carl Freer and exposed some of his fraud. Freer’s failed attempts to gain an injunction preventing broadcast, followed by his subsequent defamation/slander case being thrown out of a Danish court, is testimony to the veracity of the expose.
Carl Freer is a degenerate scammer:-
a) He is an inveterate and proven liar.
b) He is also a proven and convicted fraudster in 3 Countries – Germany, Sweden and France.
