On the one hand Carl Freer is immensely wealthy, and on the other he is an undischarged Bankrupt. It is easy to make sense of it – you just need to think like a criminal.
Carl Freer has boasted that his bankruptcy in Singapore is an attractive preference to paying off his debts. Furthermore, there are suspicions amongst the other Creditors that the Bankruptcy is a technical manoeuvre to shield himself, and his wife Ericka, from the far more serious charges of income tax fraud as they could both face prison sentences upon conviction.
Carl Freer is a contemptible hypocrite who concocts perverted morality and ‘reasons’ to justify any deed. His willingness to withhold information from, and to mislead, the Singapore tax authorities, shareholders, creditors and staff will lead to prosecutions – this site is dedicated to that goal.
The Bankrupt Carl Freer has a long history of making false statements and dishonesty in his criminal endeavours. He has three separate convictions for fraud, has 10s of millions in unpaid judgments, and has an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the French government. To that list of accomplishments Carl Freer can now add a distinguished Singaporean bankruptcy order – it sits well with the United Kingdom bankruptcy order demanding payment of $6 million.
Carl Freer enjoyed easy access to Singapore acquiring EP status, quickly followed by permanent residency status.
We can confirm the information supplied by paid advisors overseeing his applications deliberately denied and misconstrued Carl Freer’s criminal history. The Official Assignee overseeing his bankruptcy will have to make enquiries into dozens of companies incorporated in Singapore by Carl Freer to get a partial understanding of the dirty money machine which he is so expert in operating.
Last year Carl Freer abandoned Singapore and relocated himself in Dubai. His current wife Ericka lives in Sentosa in a luxury apartment, and receives an envelope with cash every month as her bank account has been withdrawn and closed.
This scandal will continue until the Dubai government, or Carl Freer’s Business partners and Dubai Bank’s abandon him.
One of the great fascinations in following Carl Freer, as with any pathological mythomaniac, is separating facts from fiction.
The way Carl Freer puffs out his chest and preens while telling the story might lead one to believe that his proudest achievement was founding Tiger Telematic Inc and its subsidiary Gizmondo Europe Limited – a fairy tale that anyone associated with Carl Freer, even briefly, will have heard many times. (Link to a series of entertaining articles on Gizmondo by “The Drive”)
Carl Freer did not found Tiger Telematics Inc. It’s a lie. The history of Tiger Telematics reveals that it originated as a Delaware based company called Floor Decor, Inc.
In 2001 Media Communications Group, Inc and Floor Decor, Inc executed a reverse takeover. For the uninitiated, that is a procedure which circumvents usual accounting procedures for a company wishing to become publicly traded. This occurred prior to Carl Freer’s involvement within the company – around the time he was stealing and reselling exotic cars in Europe.
In 2002 Carl Freer was an active director in the UK-based company Eagle Eye Scandinavia Distribution Limited when Floor Decor Inc purchased Eagle Eye Scandinavia Distribution Limited for 7 million shares of its stock on 4 February 2002.
Some months afterwards, in July 2002, Floor Decor Inc renamed itself Tiger Telematic, Inc. The 2002 annual report is where Carl Freer received his first mention – he would later become the chairman of the company.
The biography Carl Freer provided to the SEC claimed that he was a trustee of Kings Medical Research Trust and the founder of a company called Vxtreme. Both of these statements are of course lies. (Link)
Importantly Carl Freer failed to disclose to both the SEC and the board of directors that he had a previous conviction for fraud; that he was challenging an international arrest warrant; fighting extradition from the UK to Germany to face further charges for fraud – which he was subsequently convicted on; and compelled into committing criminal acts at the behest of the Swedish Mafia (or so he claimed as a defence in an attempt to bamboozle the French Court of Cassation – which didn’t work as shown above).
The unsuccessful commercial activities in 2002 finished with the annual report expressing doubts about Tiger Telematics’ ability to continue operating. The company shareholders routinely authorised the increased issue of shares from 100 million to 250 million and then to 500 million. Under Freer’s stewardship the company never produced income and the 2003 annual report held an audit opinion that the amount of equity or debt needed for the company to successfully execute its business plans raised substantial doubts about its ability to continue as a going concern.
Tiger Telematic was essentially a tool used by Carl Freer as a grand PR machine for his various scams. It would pump out press releases regarding sponsorship agreements, joint ventures and strategic partnerships.
As the company entered into 2004 the litigation began.
F1 team Jordan filed a 3 million lawsuit against Tiger for failing to make $500,000 payment due under their sponsorship agreement. 2Games Ltd sued for trademark infringement.
Tiger Telematic Inc was removed from the over-the-counter bulletin board and began trading on the Pink Sheet system. Even though many of the PR statements claimed the company traded on NASDAQ this prestigious goal was never achieved. Yet another Carl Freer lie. Tiger Telematics never became a NASDAQ listed company.
Tiger Telematic Inc’s SEC filings provide documentary evidence that Carl Freer was, and is, a dishonest man, with dishonest intentions for the companies he controlled.
He is a documented liar and cheat who, through persuasion and pathological lying, presents himself as an honest entrepreneur worthy of support and trust.
Every fraud has a beginning, middle and end. In regards to Tiger Telematics the beginning was founded on and laced with lies, the middle was the self-enrichment program, and the end was the company being exposed and abandoned with debts in excess of $200 million.
This exact pattern exists in EVERY Carl Freer venture, company or ‘opportunity’.
Had Tiger telematics conducted due diligence prior to Carl Freer’s appointment events may have turned out differently. As ever the company’s advisors, attorneys, bankers and shareholders were all deceived.
Unfortunately the same can be said of every investor, employee, lawyer, banker or associate that has fallen foul of Carl Freer. Had they done just a little due diligence . . .
That is why this site exists – to make enough of the truth about Carl Freer available and easily discoverable.
The 19th of May 1970 is Carl Freer’s Birthday. That is what is shown on all of his legal documents – his passports, drivers licenses and so on.
However if you go to Wikipedia you will note that Carl Freer’s date of birth is given as 9th May – a very small but deliberate trick so that he can, as needed, invalidate the content of Wikipedia – this has been a deliberate strategy for many years – he can rubbish any negative story by simply saying, “They can’t even get my date of birth correct!” (And then quickly pay to have the truth removed and replaced with false gloss by his stable of ‘editors’.)
For those who understand due diligence a quick visit to the edited history pages demonstrates the enormous lengths and costs that Carl Freer has gone to in order to cleanse his public persona – and yet despite all that effort he couldn’t get his birth date right?

What do you tell them? You have a lifetime of fake achievements – fake companies – fake charitable positions – fake inventions – fake friendships – – – all designed, you thought, to enrich you. So do you feel enriched; does your cup overflow with happiness? We guess not.
Birthdays provide an ideal opportunity to audit your lifestyle, if you have backbone enough to look.

The many wives of the rich and powerful in Dubai have a new app to play with, courtesy of Carl Freer’s Company Watstock Artificial Intelligence Networks Ltd.
The app is AnyWear App, and it purports to allow someone to take a screenshot or photo of someone they see, after which it will identify the clothes and design labels in the photo and take the user to a store where they can buy the same stuff.
Unlike previous launches of Carl Freer products, this one has no countdown timer and no launch party – probably because the convicted felon and fraudster Carl Freer raucously laughs about the fact that it is being released in the Middle East, where most of the woman are required to wear garments that are not particularly known for their flamboyant colors, or variations in style and cut.
In fact, so cynical and disrespectful is Carl Freer that he loudly guffaws about the fact that most of the men wear traditional garb too, and won’t be buying the app either. He finds it hilarious, and the joke in the office is that if it wasn’t for the Westerners, who would you look at in Dubai?
He further jokes that AnyWear is soon to be followed by other Apps in the same family:-
NoWear – an App that allows the user to take a photo of someone and then matches their demeanour, height, body shape and size to Carl Freer’s ‘special’ database and shows the user what that person would look like with nothing on.
SomeWear – an App similar to the above, but which shows the person in kinky under garments.
There are many Apps in the cynical Carl Freer stable – he has artificial intelligence and ‘deep learning’ working on solving all of mankind’s major problems.
For example, other products in his Watopedia PTE Ltd portfolio include WatStock and HotStock (these make millionaires out of untalented traders); AquaFinder (very useful in the desert according to Carl – it finds Oases frequented by virgins), PetroFind, WatGold, and of course WatSharia.
Recent stats released by the industry say there are over 5 million Apps available to be loaded onto smartphones – 99 .5% of these apps will not make money – AnyWear App will be in good company – regardless of the artificial intelligence, deep learning and other buzzwords Carl Freer can muster the truth is that not one single app (or one single product) produced by Carl Freer or his companies has ever created revenue to replace the investment – which means somewhere in Dubai there are investors who are falling under the spell of the serial fraudster Carl Freer.
Ulab, Carl Freer’s previous company, ceased to trade with multi-millions in debt – this company was based in Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam – investors were told that it was being sold as it held valuable intellectual property – maybe it did – maybe it didn’t – they definitely saw no return.
We do not understand why Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama favours Carl Freer and his companies. Whatever presentations have been made to Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama we are confident – given the documented history of Carl Freer’s lies and deceit – that Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama and his departments’ colleagues have been lied to.
There is only one App that Carl Freer ever produced that really works, and not surprisingly it is kept secret and is NOT available to the general public. It is called WatSucker and it identifies idiots with more money than sense who will buy into any scam.
But – no matter how good that App and no matter how much WASTA Carl Freer claims to have in UAE – history will catch up with him.
His new girlfriend is advised that if asked to open up bank accounts and become involved in Carl Freer’s ventures, she should decline. All his previous wives have huge judgements against them, with more coming, and she would be a fool to allow the same to happen to her.
Finally we should point out that AnyWear is not a new concept. See below. In fact it belongs to a Danish company (so the investors were duped into funding an existing and failing product) which is interesting as . . . there will soon be other news from Denmark . . .
The success of something is measured by monitoring its matrix, and when we say that Carl Freer is Sweden’s most successful failure it is not a spiteful statement – it is an empirical fact. OMG!
Many things in Carl Freer’s life are on an upward trend. We have highlighted the increasing arrests – the increasing number of judgements against him – the increasing number of failed ventures in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates – and the increasing laughter that can be heard whenever his name is mentioned.
(Judgements against Carl Freer companies will be the subject of a later article. There are tens of millions in judgements against his companies, and hundreds of millions awarded to creditors. Here we are covering his personal judgements.)
In the most recent Judgement – achieved just days ago – US Aluminaid’s in-house Lawyer, Terrence Wyles, obtained a $6.1 Judgement against Carl Freer and his wife (and business partner) Ericka Freer.
The Judgement names other individuals who are jointly and severally liable. The Judgement is dated the 17th January 2018 and ordered by District Court Judge, Charles M. Pratt, case number: 2014CV30600 District Court Arapahoe County, State of Colorado.
1. Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren SC – have a judgement against Carl Freer for the sum of $2,543,540.07.
2. Chicago Title Insurance Company have a judgement against Carl Freer for the sum of $475,000.00.
And so in total in the first month of January 2018, Carl Freer has three Court Judgements against him personally totalling $9,122,060.76
On top of these Judgements;
a.) the Gizmondo Liquidators have previously prepared bankruptcy papers to be served on Carl Freer for $6million, and,
b.) the long-running investigation being conducted by the Danish Authorities into the IT Factory fraud keeps moving forward as Carl Freer can be seen as the principal benefactor of that fraud.
c.) we have heard the PLO are not happy about the fraud against them. . . and neither is The King.
2018 could turn out to be a very bad year for Carl Freer. He dreamt of making a fortune and from the criminal records and judgements that stand against him it is clear he did not particularly care how he made it – and that he never intends to honour a single debt.
What we have not revealed previously is that from the hundreds of millions that he has scammed from people, Carl Freer squirrelled away vast sums into his personal Swiss Bank Accounts.
We can reveal that Carl Freer emigrated to Switzerland in 2002 to serve this very purpose.
Carl Freer is wealthy and chooses not to make these payments as they fall under the heading of Professional Consequences of a Career Fraudster.
We would ask Readers to share this information as we hear that Carl Freer is still managing to entice new Investors into his World changing new products Scams.
As we enter the 10 year anniversary of the largest fraud in Danish history – the IT Factory A/S Fraud – we join with Carl Freer, the Master Scammer, in raising a glass to what has to be one of the most audacious scams in modern history.
Carl Freer raises his glass in celebration. 10 years on he has still never been charged in relation to the IT Factory scam, and still continues to receive payment from it. No wonder that it, of all the many scams he has been involved in, is the one that most fills his heart with pride and his pockets with cash. It is the scam that keeps on paying and the one he boasts about the most – money stolen in Denmark launched the public company in America.
As for us – we raise a glass to signify the launch of a new impetus to the investigation as we release documents that shed new light on what actually happened. Astonishing documents. Documents that by rights should finally result in Carl Freer’s apprehension and incarceration in either America or Denmark.
First a little recap
The cast of characters that set up and managed the key corporations are all convicted felons and needless to say – but worth pointing out – are hardly like to have planned a legitimate undertaking.
Carl Freer – needs little introduction on this site as we have already detailed his many arrests and convictions and have provided evidence to show that he is – to this date – a fugitive from justice; a man on the run.
Mikael Ljungman – previously involved in the Gizmondo saga with Carl Freer. Had been convicted of fraud in Sweden and later received a 7 year sentence for his part in the IT Factory fraud – and a luxury apartment.
e-Commerce paid for the incorporation of LCM Lombard Capitol Management GmbH. This company received shares in Madero/Getfugu and was used a year later to convince the Board headed by Mr. Sandstrom of Sodermalm Tenants Association in Stockholm that it had real income of SEK7million a year to assign a residential lease to Mikael Ljungman from its previous leaseholder the Head of the Swedish Mafia Roland Bjuhr. His apartment on Strandvagen 41 was transferred into Mikael Ljungman’s name due to the stated income from LCM Lombard Capitol Management GmbH.
If LCM Lombard Capitol Management GmbH was an honest company it wouldn’t have been incorporated using money laundered from the IT Factory scam. If LCM Lombard Capitol Management GmbH was an honest company it wouldn’t have been used to launder shares in Madero/Getfugu. If LCM Lombard Capitol Management GmbH was an honest company it would have had a website, telephone number and business activity apart from being conceived and used to channel IT Factory funds through.
Bjorn Hoglund – He has three convictions in Sweden – In 1995 he received a suspended sentence for forging documents – in 1999 he received a 10 month sentence for accounting fraud, tax evasion and forging documents – 2007 he received a sentence of 2 years and six months for serious tax evasion, fraud and accountancy fraud.
The companies involved
IT Factory A/S – set up in Denmark and leasing and utilising Media Power and IBM technology. Had it been an honest operation rather than a scam it would have been one of the largest tech companies in Denmark and a national success. Instead it crashed with DKK 1.1 Billion in debt – Media Power’s subsidiary e-Commerce received multi millions of dollars from the fraud.
Media Power – 100% owned subsidiary called e-Commerce. Media Power Inc. claimed to be at the forefront of augmented reality technology and might have been an amazing success had it not been conceived by a criminal cabal. Carl Freer and Mikael Ljungman were its founders and Bjorn Hoglund was its Executive Vice President. It “Partnered” with IT Factory.
Madero Inc (Later became GetFugu Inc.) – A shell company created to receive stolen funds – it continues to trade on the stock market to this day, a fascade of legitimacy concealing a dirty truth revealed below for the first time.
Much has been written in the Scandinavian media about the IT Factory fraud and if you so choose you can do further research through Google and the Scandinavian media. ( Google “IT Factory + GetFugu” and click “translate this page” on the results).
We will not rehash the information that you can find by looking up what the media have written. Rather, by adding the missing pieces to the IT Factory puzzle we will show you how the stolen millions were washed through Media Power and its subsidiary e-Commerce and used to purchase assets which have produced even more millions for the participants of the IT Factory fraud for almost a decade.
When investigating any fraud one follows the money. Bank accounts, emails, corporate brochures, US Patent Office and the Securities and Exchange Commission all provide key data, and demonstrate that Carl Freer was, and still is, the primary beneficiary of the audacious IT Factory fraud.
We will show you that the funds from this fraud were money laundered through technology patents and shares in Madero Inc. renamed Getfugu Inc. which is still trading shares in America today.
August 29, 2008: A Public Statement issued by Media Power said that Media Power Inc. had purchased 48% of Madero, Inc. for $264,000, and received 4 million shares of common stock (non-tradable).
Madero was a shell corporation. This statement was false. The truth that Carl Freer, Mikael Ljungman were hiding was that e-Commerce purchased 100% of Madero, Inc. stock utilising the funds stolen in the IT Factory fraud. So sure were they of their ability to muddy the facts that e-Commerce even paid for the office lease for Madero Inc in Rowayton $38,833.50
The documented evidence clearly demonstrates that e-Commerce purchased Madero,Inc with two payments:-
(1) $100,000 on the 1 August, 2008.
(2) $286,000 on the 28 August, 2008.
These payments were made by e-Commerce to Anna Krimshtein’s law firm.
Not satisfied with the public lie about the purchase, Media Power Inc compounded the felony by withholding the fact that the remaining 52% of Madero Inc had ALSO been purchased by e-Commerce. This 52% was the unrestricted stock.
The 52% of unrestricted stock was transferred into companies paid for with e-Commerce funds and incorporated by Sovereign Corporate Services located at PO box 62201, Dubai, United Arab emirates, on e-Commerce directions. (For evidence of this check these three links. LCM LombardMandalay and Stone HarbourLynx)
Further proof of Carl Freer involvement is the email he sent on 23 December to Latham Stearn (who was later appointed Chairman) saying approximately 51% of Madero’s shares are free trading, currently held by a group of “friendly” non-affiliated shareholders (Part of email by CF)
Several months later the unrestricted stock was secretly transferred from these companies into accounts owned by the immediate family of Carl Freer, and thereby put under his control and ownership. The funds used to purchase these shares came directly from the fraud in Denmark’s IT Factory.
So you can see why we said Carl Freer can be characterised as the largest beneficiary of the IT Factory fraud. The monies from this fraud were money laundered through the shares in Getfugu Inc. (previously Madero Inc.)
Unrestricted shares in Getfugu Inc, are still being traded to this day. What shareholders have not known is that all the unrestricted shares were purchased using stolen funds, that the unrestricted shares were placed in offshore companies located in Dubai (see linked data above) and later transferred into Carl Freer’s control through his family members.
In keeping with his dreams of grandeur Carl Freer’s family were registered to the “Paradise Foundation” – no doubt another of his great humanitarian and philanthropic endeavours. Match the Certificate number on this with the number listed on page 2 of he transfer document above.
The documents we have acquired provide the missing evidence of how this fraud was orchestrated. Media Power’s audited accounts are false; Media Power’s statements to the SEC are false; and Madero Inc (renamed Getfugu Inc.) statements to the SEC are false.
We will pass all the data collated on to the SEC, the IT Factory investigation team, American tax authorities and the FBI. We will explain to the authorities in Dubai the role they played in the fraud.
Finally, if there are shareholders in Getfugu Inc who decide to take a class action, all of our information and sources will be made available to you.
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.
Convicted of: Serious Fraud, and Serious Fraud by means of document plagiarism

French Court – Highest Appeals Court whose ruling is FINAL
•Guilty of Fraud,
•Sentenced to 2 years imprisonment,

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;

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:
