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.
Even the most cursory examination of publicly available information on the Internet would have informed the reader that Carl Freer has been convicted of FRAUD 3 times. He has been arrested in 5 different countries for involvement in criminal activities. His (unserved) 2 year jail term was ordered and set by the highest appeal court in France – the Court of Cassation.
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 Needs Props To Con People – the Millennial 2020 Asian Summit 2017
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.
