  1. Obviously daring to respond to trolls in kind on this forum leads to a lot of paranoia and rubbish. Even from the moderators. Are the moderators actually the ones doing most of the trolling? It’s hard to see why such a paranoid, strange and incorrect outburst would be made by a moderator otherwise.
  2. Chris Thomas issues the final statement on the matter.
  3. Yet another poor trolling attempt. No gold star,. Not even a bronze. Neil need to try harder as he’s still not very good despite years of practice.
  4. What a poor attempt at trolling. No surprises there though from the forums saddest and most persistent troll. I’m sure you might get some points for effort though for someone who seems to be firmly in the troll remedial class.
  5. I have to say I think the idea is nuts and that very few people will take it up. It’s to gain likes on social media from idiots who will probably never come here anyway and nothing else. I’m amazed we’ve not come up with ‘the Isle of Vegan’ campaign yet to appeal to another popular emerging group of gullible idiots.
  6. Most blokes’ ideal woman then?
  7. Yes I’d say that’s right so why do we need 2 sets of people employed by government plus a bunch of volunteers to all to do the exact same thing within 20 feet of each other?
  8. The study also showed that work-cations have become the new norm with 52 per cent of people from the UK regularly checking work emails while abroad and 54 per cent continuing to work through fear of falling behind on workloads or underachieving. If that is a known fact why are they encouraging people to come to the IOM and potentially get sacked by throwing their phones away? I’d agree with you and Charlie Brown it’s a cover for crap phone coverage existing outside of town.
  9. There is a Manx equivalent to the CSA you want to shop them to it. There’s definitely people in the DHSC who do this.
  10. Why would anyone want to have any ire for an economic safety net which ensures that innocent children don't become the victims of poverty and abandonment like the Victorian work house system? It’s the benchmark of a decent progressive society. Throughout history men have very often fucked off leaving their former partners and their abandoned children destitute without any form of financial support. At least we don’t let that happen now through taxpayer funded benefits. It’s very rarely the fault of the mother or the child that they have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
  11. I think you’ll find it wasn’t.
  12. I’m not sure it is though other than for a very small minority. A lot of social security is in my mind picking up the tab for the behaviour of a lot of feckless men who get to piss off and dump what should be their costs onto the taxpayer.
  13. That’s a bit unfair blaming an insecure woman for falling for the lies of a load of chancers like the exact same thing hasn't happened for the last 2,000 years or so. Very few women deliberately get pregnant. I’d say most largely get talked into it by manipulative men. Those condoms can be hellishly itchy for the wrong bloke. And if she loved him really it shouldn’t matter if she ends up pregnant or not. Than there’s religions that prohibit a man from wearing a jonnie. Etc, etc, etc.
  14. Very few of them are for the reasons that you so eloquently highlight.
  15. Most people who work in compliance wouldn’t know what a fraud was if it hit them in the face.
  16. You seem to like making a lot of suggestions but few of them seem to have any real substance other than being a convenient way of starting arguments with other posters.
  17. Even the newspaper uses the word deemed fraudulent not “fraud” as it’s a case of market abuse. I hope you don’t work in compliance.
  18. He’s not really a fraudster though is he as a few have pointed out above. If he was a fraudster surely the AML would indicate that the funds were the proceeds of fraud.
  19. I agree with you Neil Down was trying to claim it was fraud (largely just to create a pointless argument) but as I said if it had been fraud any AML check would likely have said it was fraud. So AML checks either weren’t done, or it wasn’t fraud. I’d argue like you and GKW that it isn’t really fraud it was market manipulation with the regulators being pretty much aware of what was going on as he’d told them everyone else was doing it and they never took any action. Looks like nobody took any action here either when he was then fleeced for £11m.
  20. Sorry I didn’t realize that you were a moderator or had any sort of editorial control on this forum. However aside from a feeble attempt at trolling it doesn’t really matter about the circumstances as the reality is that Directors of a Manx company conned an autistic man out of £11m. How he got the money is incidental. Although actually you’d think the company would have been required to do AML on where the £11m came from in the first place and establish whether it was from the proceeds of fraud or not so it looks like a double fail for the IOM. Failed to do AML then conned him out of the £11m
  21. My title says he was defrauded by an IOM company which plainly he was.
  22. Funny that I’ve never heard of Cranwood and the FSA here has never made any comment or statement in relation to this £11m fraud.
  23. More great publicity. Autistic man who created £45M from manipulating securities markets ultimately cheated out of the money by IOM renewable energy company https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7935969/Taming-Hound-Hounslow-Hes-brilliant-savant-cheated-Wall-Street-bedroom.html “A further £11.5 million was invested with Cranwood Holdings Limited, an Isle of Man company, which claimed it would develop a windfarm and produce profits of up to £400 million. Navs Cranwood investment was spent on salaries for the CEO and a number of his family members (who possessed no relevant experie
