One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, “How does Carl Freer make money?”
The simple answer – the thing we have been trying to tell people all along – the whole point of this blog – the bottom line truth – is that Carl Freer doesn’t make money, and never has made any.
“Making money” as a concept suggests the existence of a product or service that is provided to others as an equitable exchange for their money.
Carl Freer does not have, and never has had, any genuine product or service to provide to anyone.
Carl Freer does not make money – he steals money. Carl Freer is a thief.
One does not think of a thief as being someone who “makes money”, any more than one thinks of a beggar as being gainfully employed in his chosen occupation of begging.
Thief is not a legitimate occupation. It does not have a Tax Code. One does not add Sales Tax or VAT to Thieving. There are no ads saying, “Thief wanted – $35 per hour base rate plus commission.” Thieves do not make money – they steal money.
It is an empirical fact that Carl Freer has never made money
Look at the facts. And here we are not just talking about the courts all around the world that have convicted Carl Freer for being a Thief (Fraudster, ConMan, Cheat, Swindler, Racketeer – call it what you will, it is essentially the same) – we are talking about his record as a businessman.
Over the years Carl Freer has formed companies in America, United Kingdom, Sweden, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Brazil, Singapore and Dubai to name but some of the locations.
Every one of those has failed. Not one of those has ever had a legitimate product or service to provide to others.
Of course Carl Freer will insist that they did have – but let’s look at that.
He might for example point to Unicorn Labs Pte Ltd, incorporated on Sept 8th, 2015, trading as ULab. On iTunes and Google Play ULab claims ownership of 17 mobile apps.
Surely ULabs, with 17 ‘products’ it sells to the public was legitimate.
Well, no. Not even ULab – which out of all of his companies came the closest to seeming like it had legitimate products – made any money.
First of all, the apps are freebies – they are given away. Secondly, in 3 years of ‘trading’, ULab has only managed to give away 141 total downloads of all apps combined. That is dismal.
This leads us to the real point here, which is – what is a product or service?
As we all know, people love freebies. If something with even a small value is offered free, stocks will be depleted in minutes. The only free stuff that doesn’t move off the shelves is that which is worthless – or worse than worthless.
A stand by the side of the road loaded with fresh tasty apples and a sign that said they were free would be empty of apples before long. The same stand loaded with rotten apples would not empty. Some stuff is just so bad that it cannot even be given away.
It is the same with service. If some tramp came to your car with a filthy bucket of muddy water and a dirty rag and offered to clean your windows free, you would tell them – politely or probably impolitely – that you did not want their free service.
This introduces the idea that to be worthy of being called a ‘product’ or ‘service’ an item must be something that people actually want.
It is not just ULab that could not give away its products. Look at the Watopedia scam that we highlighted in its infancy and warned people of. This has 2 apps – Hotstock and Anywear – both of which supposedly make use of cutting edge AI technology to give their users the upper hand.
With just 14 downloads between them since their launch a year ago, it is clear that the consuming public can see exactly where Carl Freer is at. What is amazing is that the investing public do not have the same ability to perceive.
Carl Freer does not have and never has had, any genuine product or service to sell. He can’t even give his inventions, apps, services or amazing insights into AI, away.
What Carl Freer does sell is amazing stories of how successful you will be if you follow his advice and guidance – he can produce an app which will allow you to increase your profits.
For instance, if you had a car hire company, imagine how profitable the company would be if everybody in the UAE could download your app!
And therein lies the problem. ”IF.”
Because even dim witted people know that the public do NOT download apps – especially not those created by any Carl Freer Company. The general public seem to have a sense about Carl Freer enterprises. They somehow smell a rat. Not surprising really – he is a rat.
Think about it – would you give a thief your financial details in order to hire a car?
You should also look out for the Carl Freer ‘AI assisted App’ which will help you decide what Horse to bet on in a Horserace, and even encourage you to place your bet through the app. Again why would anybody use an app created and provided by a thief? People are just not that stupid.
But How Does He Keep Going?
Despite his companies never making any money, despite all the court cases awarding the staff their unpaid wages, and investors and institutions the return of their fraudulently stolen money, it is clear that Carl Freer does end up with a lot of money.
His current lifestyle – supporting wives and mistresses and useless staff/kids in expensive apartments in expensive cities – having to pay continually for reputation management to hide his criminal past from people while he scams them – having to take constant evasive action and the cost of security to avoid the Palestinians – having to constantly appease the Russian Mafia – is estimated to cost close to $500,000 per month.
We have explained in many articles on this site the ways in which he steals, defrauds, cons, or otherwise separates fools from their money.
And yet, it seems, he continues to bring the money in, which in turn could imply that he MUST be selling something of value.
In the interests of finally getting some of the investors to understand what is going on, we have decided to give this ‘product’ or ‘service’ a name.
What Carl Freer Does to Make Money
Throughout history, there are famous examples of people using their position for personal gain.
Prominent among those, and one that most people know of, is Papal Bull 1455 in which the Pope decreed that all lands and all the people South of Portugal – i.e. All of Africa – belonged to Portugal; and thereby set up the slave trade that was to result in mass human trafficking to the Americas – which he decreed, in the less known Papal Bull of 1493, belonged to Spain and Portugal.
The Holy See, God’s representative on Earth, responsible for the souls of all men, was simply seeing to his own personal gain, and through series of Decrees and Bulls, stole not only all property people owned but their lives as well.
People lived in terror of Papal Bulls. When a new one came out the population would, in unison, moan, “Oh Shit!”
And that, of course, is the origin of the term, “Papal Bull – Oh Shit.” Abbreviated now to just “Bull-Shit.” And Bullshit is what our man Carl Freer sells. It stinks of fraud. It stinks of manipulation and personal vested interest. It stinks of deceit.
Carl Freer pontificates endlessly about AI and what a genius he is and the apps he can make that will transform people into millionaires – an endless stream of bullshit. And people buy it.
Obviously “Carl Freer Bullshit” is a genuine commodity wanted by some. Some people like that stinky stuff. And THAT is how he “makes money.”
“I have decided to silence my critics and show that I am indeed a man of honour,”Carl Freer told this stunned reporter last week.
I received a telephone call from Carl Freer who said he was calling from his hospital bed where he was receiving treatment for an old back injury. After 11 minutes of complaints regarding some of the sites articles he astonished me with the following statements.
“Critics point to the fact that in the past, in just about every one of my companies and ventures, my staff have gone unpaid and instead been left with fistfuls of shares and court judgements against me – both of which are unredeemable and therefore worthless.”
“I am tired of being touted as a criminal,” complained Carl Freer, his voice racked with grief. “It’s not my fault that all those companies failed – but people don’t see that. They blame me – all of these people have entitlement issues.”
A Most Amazing Mind and a Man of Honour
“I want to be recognised for what I truly am – one of the most astounding minds of the 21st century; a visionary entrepreneur who revolutionised the world of handheld electronics, spearheaded proper medical care for burn victims, and who is single-handedly ensuring that the development of AI is toward improving the human condition rather than another means of further increasing the power and wealth of a selected few.”
“I am sick to the core of people who only think of themselves and what they can personally get out of any given situation. I will no longer be such a person.”
Carl Freer seemed genuine as he told me this. This was not the man I expected – he was very convincing, and he seemed very open and honest. Carl Freer hates the lies spread by envious people on the internet and in the press – people who claim that he, the great Carl Freer, is a deceitful, multi-convicted, felonious scammer plying his trade in an ever shrinking environment as his criminal past catches up with him and funnels him toward life a cage where his undoubted persuasive skills will be fully tested in a portentially futile endeavour to preserve some sort of dignity and not end up as Big Baba’s bitch.
I will sell my art collection to protect my honour
I asked Carl Freer what he planned to do to ensure that his current staff would be taken care of. His raucous laugh used all the bandwidth before he explained, “Look . . . in the past, I would simply have employed delaying tactics against the staff.”
“I would have strung them along for months with promises of pay just as soon as some investor money came through – and I am good at that one. I can make it seem like the funds are just around the corner.”
“Then I could add in some personal situations – like maybe going to a hospital for a health issue or something like that. I have done that several times and it works every time.”
“And then I offer them stock in the company as evidence of my good faith. That shows them that I value the company and that I do not believe it is failing. They always go for that option.”
“There are all kinds of things I can do. I have often given people things – like watches or cars or whatever that are bought with a small down payment and ongoing financing. That one is great. They think they have something – until the repo and debt collectors come round and they realise all they actually have is a shit load of trouble . . .”
“All of the above are legitimate strategies for a start-up company pre-revenue – if you don’t like the environment of a start-up company then the staff should work for multinationals. I am tired of their whining.”
“What is different this time?” I asked persistently. “How do they know that this time you will actually pay them and not screw them?”
Carl Freer’s laughter grew louder.
“This time I am going to sell my art collection and raise the cash to pay them!”
The revelation was astonishing. But I knew his critics would just say that he does not have an art collection to sell, and this is simply another Carl Freer ploy. I asked him to provide some evidence.
Within seconds Carl Freer sent me this picture.
“Here,” he said, “are the three loves of my life. My painting by Marc Chagall called ‘La Concert’, my wife Ericka and my daughter Isabella.”
“That painting alone is worth more than ten times all the money owed to my staff / investors. In fact, a Chagall painting sold at auction last year for $28.5 million.”
Carl Freer forwarded a document and explained it to me. “This is a valuation created by independent experts of some of the art I have collected and own. Together these pieces were all worth more than $21 million – and that was at that time. I have added to the collection since, plus its value has risen substantially.”
I must have sounded surprised because Carl Freer then forwarded me other documents that proved the existence of, and his ownership of, Juanita – the company that holds all of this artwork.
Carl Freer asked me not to support his detractors and doubters, but instead to relay to them that he is an honourable man, a true humanitarian, a genuine philanthropist and that he is as good as his word.
He insisted that no one should doubt him – he will liquidate his art collection through auction houses and private sales – funds will be readily available to pay all the outstanding bills and past judgements against him. He said if his word was not good enough, he also needed to take care of everything so he could relocate his family and businesses to Vancouver, Canada.
I declined his invitation to join him in Dubai to meet with the auction house overseeing the sale of the picture La Concept. I cannot be sure if Carl Freer’s statements were genuine, or simply a delusional concoction resulting from pretended back-pain, too many drugs, and his natural propensity for dis-honesty. Time will tell.
But – always the optimist – I say that we should all give Carl Freer the benefit of the doubt once again and all hold our breath in anticipation of his, for once, doing the honourable thing. And may we all Rest In Peace!
To our friends in Dubai, “Thank You!” We are always grateful for the information sent – we would like to verify the sale of the collection.
What’s the difference between Whattopedia and Watopedia?
They sound just the same.
They both have convicted criminals as their mouthpieces.
Whattopedia is associated with convicted fraudster Stein Bagger. He received seven years imprisonment for his involvement in the IT Factory Fraud in Denmark.
Watopedia is associated wth convicted fraudster Carl Freer. He was involved in the IT Factory Fraud – the stolen funds were allegedly funnelled to him. He has been subpoenaed by the Danish authorities for his part in the fraud.
Stein Bagger’s response to the similarities in the names and spelling was, “Is that right – that is annoying! Freer is an idiot!”
Carl Freer’s response to the similarities in the name and spelling was, “I plead the 5th!”
When its was pointed out to him that he is in Dubai and not America he responded, “Is that right – that is annoying! Freer is an idiot!”
We had to agree.
So . . . what is the difference?
The difference is in the spelling. Whattopedia and Watopdedia.
It is very subtle. It is one of Carl Freer’s greatest accomplishments. If you don’t see it then we suggest that you invest all your life savings in any Carl Freer company.
Might as well bring about the inevitable as rapidly as possible, and earn yourself a Darwinian award.
Almost a year ago, to the day, we published an article, plus extensive evidence, detailing how the internationally wanted criminal Carl Freer had defrauded the Palestine Investment Fund out of $21 Million. (Link) A follow up article and new evidence a few days later showed how he attempted, but failed, to do the same to the Dubai Investment Group. (Link)
The $21 Million scam was a crime against the Palestinian people – he mercilessly stole from people that needed it most – he stole it because he could; he was clever and they were vulnerable – This is the yacht he financed with some of the money.
Carl Freer is after all a notorious International crime figure. There is ample evidence for even the dullest investigator to stumble across on the Internet News sites. Newspapers and courts around the world have collected evidence and unanimously pronounce him to be a hardened criminal and scoundrel.
He is actively being sought by the French penal system, with an active arrest warrant issued against him.
Carl Freer misrepresented himself in order to get close to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan – the photograph (shown above) is currency in the mind of Carl Freer – currency stolen from the hard work and devotion His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has invested in his country.
Within hours of his sting on the Sheikh, Carl Freer had posted it on his website as an endorsement of his scam operation Watstock, and had emailed it to broadly to investors as ‘evidence’ of recommendation from the highest echelons.
The United Arab Emirates, so anxious about its reputation, could take action.
In Dubai we have a location that wants to be the top notch Oasis in the desert, attracting the international jet set from all around the world to the jewel in the wilderness – an unequaled Paradise. No expense is spared to make it look like Paradise, but therein it seems lies the lie.
An Oasis, by definition, is supposed to be a safe space, and Dubai promotes that it is such a place.
On the surface it appears that they filter out undesirables, so that the riff raft and criminal element is kept out, much like bouncers ostensibly keep such people out of the best clubs. And yet, right in the middle of the Dubai Oasis, lurks a predator.
Who is Protecting Carl Freer in Dubai?
Carl Freer resides in Dubai. He’d love to go to the USA, but cannot do so because of his criminal activities and arrest there, and his passport scam.
Europe is not safe. He has the outstanding arrest warrant, and the Danish authorities are actively investigating him and his role in the biggest fraud in Danish history. He recently made the headlines there again as he lost his case.
Singapore is unsafe. We are told there are shareholders and creditors on the look out for him after his frauds perpetrated there caused much hardship on the local population.
He could go to the Maldives; except that he has been kicked out of there as they value the sanctity of their little paradise, and understand that keeping it safe for visitors is a better long term strategy than taking back-handers from a notorious career criminal.
Everyone that should be doing something about him knows where he is and knows that with his outstanding arrest warrant he could easily be ‘solved’ as a problem.
Western diplomats from Sweden, England, France, Denmark, Germany and diplomates from America are aware of his location and Carl Freer’s acquaintance with Sanjay Shah – maybe they are hoping this relationship will blossom and provide valuable information in their global investigation. This site can confirm that Carl Freer’s claims of a great friendship with Sanjay Shah are untrue – he holds no tradable information.
Wasta is powerful stuff. Look at his latest play using His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan
Time and again we have shown how Carl Freer operates his scams. They all run in an exact pattern, and one of his major mechanisms is to falsely claim endorsement from genuine authorities.
As covered above, Carl Freer managed to get a photo taken of himself with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and within hours he had it posted on his website to claim endorsement by His Highness for the Watstock scam; allude to his being a founder of the scam; and emailed it to thousands as evidence of the Sheikh recommending his scam.
This is much the same as he did with Professor Huang Guangbin when he tried to claim he was a co-fouder of Watstock – a falsehood the Professor rapidly corrected. It is also what Carl Freer did when he forged the signature of Ed Ventura, head of Microsoft Gaming Studios, and showed it to investors to get them to dump even more money into his Gizmondo device scam. (Link – see Part 3 or go to the source article)
The truth is most likely that Carl Freer has no endorsement from the Sheikh. That there is in fact no wasta.
Look again at what UAE has welcomed into its midst
1. His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan is sympathetic to the plight of Palestinians and has made very generous, and much needed, donations. These have sometimes been rejected because their pride and integrity are more valuable to them than the temporary physical comfort his donations would provide.
By detaining Carl Freer, the man who defrauded the Palestinians out of $21 million because they were an easy target – the UAE authorities could do much to gain valuable respect from the Palestinians and their global support base – who well remember the fraud against them.
All the documents have been provided. The evidence is there. With the stroke of a pen the situation could be remedied, restoring at least some goodwill for United Arab emirates, the Sheikh and the King.
2. Mr Carl Freer has a 14 year business relationship with a UK company which sold surveillance radar to Qatar. More recently he was attempting to sell the same military grade surveillance radar to groups in Malaysia.
3. The Danish authorities have determined that Carl Freer was the major beneficiary of the largest fraud in Danish history – a fraud that was discovered in Dubai. Carl Freer has just lost his case against the media that were exposing his criminal involvement.
4. Carl Freer has been arrested in 5 countries and has an active arrest warrant against him. He’s been convicted by three separate courts for fraud – United Arab Emirates spends large sums of money to international PR firms to promote the positive image the country presents – His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan runs his own International office staffed with highly talented individuals to protect him from embarrassment – the photograph represents a failure – this failure is Carl Freer success, as he posted the picture within hours of it being taken. Sent it via email to numerous individuals claiming to have the sheikh support and friendship.
5. The video (link) showing his association with the King has been viewed more than 10,000 times. We would hope by people who are disbelieving of the stories promoted by Carl Freer that he has royal support.
The dignity of the United Arab Emirates is in the hands of its people – if they choose not to value it why should others? Carl Freer resides in Dubai as a visitor, as a guest – like any other guest, if they do not conform to the laws and to convention they are not welcome.
The United Arab Emirates, very properly, operate strict immigration controls. Known criminals and malefactors are regularly refused entry into the country. The property that Carl Freer acquired by deception and misrepresentation should be sequestered, the government of United Arab Emirates can achieve this almost with a stroke of a pen, and people think it has a duty to do so, to show to the people and to the world that it will not allow crime to pay – such a course of action would be universally popular.
As to the companies in United Arab Emirates who chose to take on Carl Freer as a client, their license to operate should be reviewed. The dignity and integrity of UAE should be above the Financial short-term gains for working for a convicted criminal.
Danish courts reject defamation claim by convicted Fraudster Carl Freer – verify he is a Criminal and Fraudster
In the Danish article pictured (dated 29th of June 2018) we have the details of how his case was dismantled on the facts by the Danish Courts. Despite having retained some of the best lawyers available (check the links to see if they will ever get paid), and having attempted a massive Internet reputation management campaign, they were unable to hide the truth.
The truth being the fact that Carl Freer is a convicted criminal, on the run to avoid a jail sentence, and relying on wasta to stay out of jail in Dubai.
Carl Freer is a documented liar and cheat – a three-time convicted Fraudster with an outstanding warrant for his arrest issued by the French courts.
These things cannot be hidden.
Carl Freer is halfway through the year 2018. It started with the judgement against Carl Freer of $6.2 million in favour of his previous attorney Terry Wyles. That was soon followed by a subpoena issued by IT Factories liquidators Attorneys in New York. That has now been followed by this judgement against him.
We will monitor and report on the next 6 months. There is much more to come.
Systematic indifference from the Dubai authorities casts a shadow over its credibility as a location where honest people can engage in the artificial intelligence sector.
CEO Wesam Lootah of Smart Dubai, a Government Establishment, was pictured next to Carl Freer – the renowned criminal linked with the European Mafia. They were both speakers at the Artificial Intelligence forum 2018 Dubai – the website claimed official government partnership as Smart Dubai.
This begs the question – has due diligence disappeared in Dubai? Carl Freer is a notorious international criminal who was sentenced to 2 years in jail by the French Supreme Court, for his role in the European Mafia car fraud, that ruling (link) was delivered with him in absentia, they also issued a (still active) warrant for his arrest. That by itself should be enough to get the Dubai authorities to act, let alone the plethora of facts and evidence showing Carl Freer to be a rampant criminal that would be uncovered by a simple internet search of his name.
The apparent lethargy and incapacity of the Dubai authorities to fulfil their official obligations lends credence to Carl Freer’s continuous claims that he has negotiated royal family protection (wasta). Carl Freer is supported by elements in the Royal Family, and, in the Four Seasons Hotel restaurant he recently informed his guests that Dubai is a gangster’s paradise and he wished he moved there years ago.
How else could a wanted criminal with a record as long as his attend a prestigious event such as this with impunity – and publicly start scamming people? As is his well-published style, he has used that event to lend credibility to his venture. He is already showing people the photos, telling them he was a keynote speaker, telling them about his Royal Family Friends, and, having convinced them he is the real deal, will con them out of their money. There has never been any substance to any Carl Freer company or venture, and there never will be.
For those not in the know, artificial intelligence and crypto currencies are Carl Freer’s new areas of interest, and he has engaged financial advisors in Dubai to raise funds for an ICO. Carl Freer’s foray into crypto will be a failure – just like every other one he has been involved in. We will bring more details later, but anyone familiar with Carl Freer and his ventures can be assured that this will again be another criminal endeavour – the leopard has not changed its spots nor could it if it wanted to.
The Danish authorities take action against Carl Freer. Case No. 13-10954 (MG)
Unlike the Dubai authorities, the Danish authorities and Danish media have taken action. Subpoenas have been issued by KOBRE & KIM LLP in Carl Freer’s name in New York, America, and; the Danish media have highlighted his central role in the largest fraud in Danish history in double-page spreads in two national newspapers. Danish and Swedish nationals living in Dubai are aware of Carl Freer and his criminal history and will take positive steps to avoid being scammed.
To the hundreds of people who have contributed to this site, and thereby contributed to the renewed Danish and America interest in bringing Carl Freer to justice, let us simply say that we will not give up exposing this criminal until justice is served.
The recent attempt to bring down our site has been thwarted. With your support, we will prevail. Keep sending us material.
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.
2018 will be an eventful year for the master criminal Carl Freer.
A year that starts with much anticipation and reveals intriguing orchestration and manipulation as he ducks and dives in a futile attempt to free himself from the snare and its inexorable tugging toward a French jail cell, while appeasing and stalling his handlers for whom he failed to deliver in 2017 – and all while also placating authorities on several fronts.
Before predicting the future let us take a moment to give you some background information in order that you can make your own assessment of what makes this man tick.
Carl Freer’s Father, John Freer, now deceased, was a British Citizen who met and married Maryanne (his mother) in Sweden while working there in a nuclear facility. Carl Johan Freer was born on 19th May 1970.
In 1976 the family moved to San Francisco where his Father became an IBM Programmer. This post lasted for about 2 years before IBM assigned him to duties in France and Belgium.
In 1983, aged 13, Carl Freer’s parents separated and Carl Freer found himself back in Sweden living with his mother.
As a 15 year old Carl Freer dropped out of school and started working full time in Restaurants and Night Clubs. His first fraud that we know of was committed at this time – with no customer demand for it, and on a whim, he ordered in expensive sea food delicacies which he, unsurprisingly, failed to sell and so had to consume himself least it spoil. He was fired for that caper but not criminally charged.
The young Carl Freer had ambition – alas he had neither talent nor inclination to achieve anything by any legitimate means.
With a school friend he decided to get into designer clothing and set his sights on opening a clothes shop – so he went to the bank SE Banken and forged his parent’s signatures to secure a loan and forged various checks. The shop fell through. At the age of 18 Carl Freer became a Father – an event soon followed with his first conviction for Fraud. The Prosecution was brought by SE Banken and his Father repaid the stolen funds and damages.
Carl Freer avoided incarceration as the Judge, regretfully, decided to give him another chance due to his young age and gave him a noncustodial sentence against his better judgement.
A decent man would have learned from his mistakes and changed his ways, but as hundreds of ex-employees, investors, and professionals can attest, Carl Freer is not a decent man. The lessons he learned from his conviction emboldened him and he went on a roll committing numerous frauds at a rate that seems to have overwhelmed the authorities. Swedish Media reports confirm that during this period Carl Freer was directly associated with 14 companies that were abandoned into bankruptcy.
To avoid the Police investigations and creditor actions that were starting to catch up with him Carl Freer moved to Spain where he traded in stolen second-hand exotic cars. By this time we was 26 years old and the Father of two children.
He formed two companies in Spain – Welcom Motors and Riviera Auto Forum – and began a business relationship with Thomas Chelin selling exotic cars that had been stolen in Germany and France.
By the time he was 29 he had been arrested in Spain whence he fled to France where he resumed operations in selling his stolen exotic cars until arrested there whence he fled to Great Britain and resumed the business of selling stolen exotic cars under the alias of Eric Jonsson in a new company – European Car Sales – and was arrested again.
An International Arrest Warrant was issued by the German authorities and Carl Freer spent 3 years fighting extradition by feigning illness and incapacitation until the Germans tried and convicted him (Carl Freer alias Brian Littlejohn) in absentia on 2 counts of Fraud. He was 35 at that point. His then business partner Thomas Chelin returned to Estonia where he was arrested on Drug charges.
Carl Freer felt that a judgement against him in France could be overturned (thereby clearing his name), and after numerous appeals the matter was heard by the Court of Cassation – the highest court in France whose decision is final. To Carl Freer’s great alarm the French High Court investigated the matter diligently and the 3 judges unanimously convicted Carl Freer for his criminal activities, his lies and bad faith, and his involvement with a Mafia ring – and sentenced him to 2 and a half years imprisonment, a large fine and, due to his absence, issued an arrest warrant for his immediate arrest. Carl Freer was 41 at that time and he has been on the run ever since.
(Read this thorough article for more detailed information and documents on his criminal past, including pertinent excerpts of the French case.)
As a serial convicted fraudster Carl Freer has grown accustomed to allegations of embezzlement, fraud and forgery in businesses wherever they are located in the World.
In 2014 a US Judge found him guilty and ordered him to pay Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren S.C. $2,543,450.07. He was additionally ordered to pay Chicago Title Insurance Company $475,000.00. Unsurprisingly these Judgments remain unpaid as the then 44 year old Carl Freer beat a hasty retreat from the USA and established himself in his new location, Singapore.
As we enter the year 2018 Carl Freer has over $3 million in Judgements against him, a record of 5 arrests in 5 different countries, convictions for fraud in 3 different countries, an outstanding warrant for his arrest in France, and an amazing litany of failed companies and ventures in Sweden, Spain, France, England, USA, Hong Kong, Vietnam – to which he has now added Singapore and Dubai.
He has defrauded people and organisations of tens of millions of Dollars, including the PLO which he relieved of $20 Million alone. He has been sued by Banks, PR firms, and Law firms.
(Update: At the time of updating this article, the above video has received 3891 additional clicks in just 24 hours. This is because the authorities are taking a fresh look into this fraud as Carl Freer has demonstrated ongoing anti-Muslim sentiment and activity. The Scandinavian term “Muslimhat” literally means, “Hatred of Muslims”, and nothing could be a greater demonstration of contempt than to steal US$20 million from the poorest Islamic Arabs in the World – or (as he did recently) disrespectfully establish a Stock Investment site called WatSharia using HotStock technology to allow Muslims to play the stock market.)
As we enter 2018 we have to wonder where the now 47 year old criminal will turn next to support his lavish lifestyle. His last ventures – the AI platforms of Watstock and Hotstock – have failed dismally.
One wonders why he does not simply take the money he has stolen and disappear – he could live out his life on the proceeds of his crimes quite easily. But that is not an option for him.
Officials can easily be accused of incompetence – but only to a certain degree. When it gets too outrageous – like getting permanent residency in Singapore, a country that prides itself on screening out criminals, despite having an international arrest warrant – or imitating the King of Dubai – or defrauding the PLO with impunity – one realises that Carl Freer has been facilitated and provided air cover by powerful people, and has debts to repay. Debts he has to repay one way or another.
Carl Freer has few, if any, friends. His love of defrauding people does not stop with rich investors. Carl has to rip off the staff he employs in his scam companies, he has to rip off the professionals he engages, he has to rip off the partners he involves – and he has to rip off his friends. He can make an enemy out of just about anyone – including people that no sane person would ever antagonise.
Sometimes we hope his family is immune from his deceit. Surely he is proud of the family he created – after all he has involved many of them in previous businesses. He would not turn on them too . . . ?
His first common law partner was Camilla Agerstam and together they had two children, Julia and Adam.
His first wife was Anneli Freer and together they had Simon and Ellina as well as Natalie (child of Anneli’s from her first marriage).
His second and current wife is Ericka Freer and together they have Isabella and Jace (child of Ericka’s from her first marriage).
Carl Freer has accumulated 7 children, a common law wife and two marriages.
Are they isolated or protected from him? As you will see below, if you follow the links and read the documents, he involves them in his criminality, minimally making them accomplices if not directly implicating them.
Carl Freer is no doubt hoping that 2018 will be a more peaceful year after the debacles of 2017. He will however find no peace. He has made enemies of thousands of people, alienated his ‘friends’, disappointed his handlers, and endangered his family.
The French are trying to reel him in, and there is relentless pressure from the American and Danish authorities whose pursuit for justice for the victims in the IT Factory scam continues and is gaining impetus rapidly thanks, in large part, to our documents.
The execution of that scam by Stein Baggar, Mikael Ljungman and Carl Freer was simple enough. Below we outline some of the details – it is a little disjointed and thin as, at the request of the investigating teams, we have omitted a lot.
IT Factory stolen funds were used by Media Power to build intellectual property in the “Augmented Reality” sector. This led to a number of Patent Applications being filed on behalf of Media Power. Under American patent law an officer has to be named in the patent application therefore you will see Carl Freer’s name attached to these patents.
Mikael Ljungman had had his name attached to the patents too, but he paid to have his name removed from them in order to hide his involvement.
With the patents filed, Media Power next claimed to have purchased 48% of the restricted shares in Madero Inc. and made public statements to the Security Exchange Commission and through its Accounts that it executed the purchase. However, both statements are false as the company Madero Inc. was paid for by eCommerce LLC and 100% of the shareholding was distributed to a number of entities and natural persons including Carl Freer and Mikael Ljungman.
The above highlights and documents the fraudulent partnership between Carl Freer and Mikael Ljungman in the money laundering of IT Factory’s funds.
The intellectual property, represented by patent applications, was transferred to Carl Freer who in turn transferred it to a company called the Mara Group, a company wholly owned by Carl Freer. The public company Madero Inc. (that was purchased with IT Factory stolen funds) engaged Corporate Evaluation Advisers Inc. to issue a valuation report. They valued the patent applications (regarding the technology called Augmented Reality) at US$35million to US$52million.
Upon receiving the valuation, Madero Inc. purchased the patents from the Mara Group for 25 million shares. At the time of the transaction the shares were valued at US$60million. Madero Inc. then changed its name to GetFugu Inc.
GetFugu Inc. as a public company had to continue to file reports with the SEC. Like all of Carl Freer’s companies it ultimately failed to deliver the product and the promises made to shareholders. The purchase of the patent application occurred on 9th April 2009 and by the 19th May 2010, with the company facing financial ruin, GetFugu assigned all of its assets into a promissory note with Remington Global Capital LLC for $170,000.
8-K Filed May 25, 2010, Line 313:
“On May 19, 2010 , we obtained a bridge loan and issued a Secured Convertible Promissory Note in the initial principal amount of $170,000 to Remington Global Capital, LLC, payable in six months and bearing interest at 1% per month for the first month and 10% per month thereafter, secured by all our assets including intellectual property, and convertible after 6 months at holder’s election into shares of our common stock at $0.004 per share, subject to downward adjustment.”
It will come as no surprise to note that Remington Global Capital is a Carl Freer owned company.
Logovision Inc. (another Carl Freer company) comes into being and they now claim to own the IPR. This carries on for a 12 month period after which Logovision is taken over by Serge Media Group, who now claim they own the IPR.
Upon Serge Media Group’s take over of Logovision it presents a document claiming to buy out Carl Freer’s interests and John Freer Inc’s interests effectively on a promissory note.
After the Serge Media Group had failed to pay Carl Freer, and his name had been unconnected to the intellectual property for a two year period, along with his now being relocated in Singapore, he felt confident enough to come back onto the scene.
Carl Freer terminated the deal with Serge Media Group for non-payment and assigned the IPR Rights to Harrisburg (BVI). Harrisburg (BVI) is owned 50/50 between Carl Freer and a trusted business partner.
Carl Freer had incorporated a company called Tynkerbell in Singapore and then changed its name to iQNECT – who now claim ownership of the IP in sales documentation and marketing material. It somewhat bizarrely resubmits the original patent applications to the US Patent Office in iQNECT’s name. Please note Richard Jenkins wife ( Elizabeth Marie Jenkins) as a shareholder
More bizarrely, the same patent applications were filed with the US Patent Office in Logovision Inc’s name on the exact same day.
This concludes and evidences the fraud, iQNECT’s technology portfolio did not exist, all patent applications have to be unique and original. The applications fail on both counts as Media Power’s/GetFugu/Carl Freer patent applications had been previously abandoned. The correlation being that abandoned applications cannot be re-submitted as original or unique as they have existed prior in the abandoned filings. Carl Freer and Rich Jenkins must have known this as the applications have yet again been abandoned by iQNECT.

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.
