We have been contacted by an auction house, 2 galleries, 5 people claiming to be private collectors, 2 insurers, law enforcement in 2 countries, and many holders of judgement, creditors, investors and past and present employees. All in all we have so far received 32 communications regarding Carl Freer’s claimed “art collection” and in particular his ownership of a piece by Marc Chagall.
We have been informed that the painting featured in the picture has been previously put up for sale – the private buyer refused to continue with the purchase without the proper ownership paperwork, stating that his enquiries led him to believe that the artwork was fake and linked to the legendary art fraud incident committed by the New York art dealer Ely Sahkai who created Chagall’s fake paintings for the Japanese and Taiwanese art markets.
Chagall’s paintings are highly valued in the world art market, so when a three-time convicted fraudster, currently a fugitive at large, provides documentary evidence along with a photograph of the picture with his family, the global art market takes notice.
Their enquiries are ongoing. Predictably, however, there are claims that the art collection is fake – which leaves Carl Freer in an unusual position.
On the one hand he can provide the Providence and insurance documentation and claim legal ownership of this multi-million dollar work of art, and the other pieces in his collection.
If he did that it would leave his first wife, Anneli, in a precarious position as she is the 50% owner of Juanita (the company holding the art collection), and the collection, including the Chagall’s existence and value were not disclosed in her bankruptcy.
It would also be of interest to his current wife, Ericka Freer, who he is currently divorcing. She naturally would have an interest in the value of assets by her husband.
And naturally it would be of interest to the many ex-employees, investors and others who have judgements against Carl Freer that have yet to be satisfied.
Proving the Chagall to be genuine could be very expensive for Carl Freer.
So his other option would seem to be to claim that it is indeed a fake and of no value.
The problem with that approach is that it shows him yet again to be a liar, scammer and fraudster. After all, he used his art collection, and this very piece, to scam banks into financing his House in Stone Canyon, Beverly Hills.
What will Carl Freer do? Prove it is genuine and that he has the wherewithal to discharge his debts; or claim it is worthless and nothing more than a prop in a scam?
We will be providing further information on this ongoing expose as it unfolds.
In the meantime we pass our genuine gratitude on to Carl Freer for providing us with this excellent story in the first place.
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.
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?
Has It Been Worth it Carl NotMuchFreerThanAFishInABowl – and not free for very much longer?
Enjoying your wonderful lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel – your guests may wonder where your family members are – where your business associates are – but more importantly, where your friends are?
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. Any attempt to establish yourself as a legitimate businessperson will fail unless you first deal with those that you have cheated and lied to. You should start with the first person you cheated and lied to and whose self respect you destroyed – yourself.
If you can’t straighten yourself out, others will do it for you.
Readers have reported that the American subpoenas are starting to bear fruit – in addition, there is growing information regarding the litigating of a cryptocurrency fraud.
We will gather the data and provide the readers with an update in due course.
You can either deal with the truth, or forever have to pay for lies on Wiki, for fake videos on YouTube, for false PR articles in fake media, for Wasta to stay out of a Dubai jail, and for bots to slow our website down.
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.
In May (6 months ago), using simple human intelligence and logic, we predicted that Watstock and Hotstock, two apps being introduced to the market by the infamous Carl Freer, would prove to be yet another scam perpetrated by him against his new investors. How could we be so deadly accurate with our prediction?
The standard Carl Freer formula was executed – ingratiating himself with the big names in the field to gain credibility by association, articles in the media, paid for blogging, glossy business plan, quick trips to Amilla Fushi in the Maldives to part the rich and famous from their money while they are under the false illusion that they are immune from evil while relaxing in paradise, a pack of lies to ‘dis-prove’ all the negative exposure of his scams on the internet – it is that simple and that easy.
More paid for glossy drivel from Carl Freer to impress the gullible
The investments came rolling in, and Carl Freer continued rolling out the winning strategy. As with every one of his scams, Carl Freer announces it as “The World’s First . . .” (this time an app that uses artificial intelligence to predict the market over a 10 day period) and sets “The Countdown Clock” – for 70 days and counting to the launch of this phenomenal moneymaking app.
More excitement is produced – more investment is made prior to launch date – in the last 10 days Carl Freer is jumping in and out of meetings telling everybody who would listen that this app will change the world as we know it – it predicts the market with 85% accuracy. Artificial Intelligence, Mass Data Management, Predictive Analysis and Outcome Bias are the trigger words – the 70 day frenzy rolled towards its launch date and then – a day before launch – Watstock changes to Hotstock and a new Countdown Timer starts ticking away.
Watstock is abandoned – the website says it is on its way on 1 October 2017. Well that was 54 days ago – and where is Carl Freer?
He is working on his new project. The “World’s First” crypto currency which uses artificial intelligence.
Ravi Menon, managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, says he wants to use a “regulatory sandbox” approach as a testing ground for ICOs. Coin offerings use cryptocurrencies to raise funds for valuable fintech projects. Carl Freer’s new project wants to be in that sandbox so it can attract more money from investors in as little as half an hour by using blockchain technology.
Ravi Menon you are about to be tested.

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.
