Anyhoo. there's a few nice new details to keep me entertained. Firstly Johan Bohman has always fascinated me. He is after all the sole reason that xG are still in business. How can one man have so much money, but be so stupid with it? Obviously as we have seen elsewhere on this blog he was conned into investing in xG by our very own Fredrik Wahlman (shyster, unregulated stock-promoter) - whilst they were both on the piss in Bangkok. Now that he's sobered up, and realized what an enormous fuck-up he's made it seems like Johan and Fredrik aren't buddies anymore. When the Treco website was originally made live, the sole representative was our buddy Fredrik. Now look on the Treco site and Fred's name is nowhere to be seen.
But it gets stranger. Perhaps Johan hit the bottle again after getting rid of Fred because who did he turn to to ensure strong honest leadership at Treco? He needed someone reliable. Someone with an outstanding reputation. Marc Dannenberg was busy polishing his head so in June, Victor Suno - an ex-ACH dodgy dealing, stock manipulating arsehole - who also happened to be a xG board member, was named on Treco's site as their representative.
Well that didn't last long! A month or so later and Victor's gone too! Looks like the only people that Johan could find were a random Krav Magna instructor(!), a Welsh bloke, and Richard Kromka. Poor old Fred, poor old Victor, well I suppose they can burn their xG option certificates to keep them warm on the cold winter nights.
But Johan seems to be having even more problems than just the Treco affair. Not least that he's realized his investment in xG is next to worthless, his name is also being splashed all over the Swedish press in a less than favourable manner. We read at Affairsvarden that:
Billionaire Johan Bohman's asset management company, Green Stream Investment Services, violated both the Companies Act and the FSA regulations for years. [If the] Inspectorate had known the truth, the company had received its license revoked.
It seems like he was doing extremely risky deals with money that a CHURCH had invested with him - in violation of the wishes of the church for safe, secure, investments. When Green Steam went bankrupt the church took a huge hit.
In an eerie-echo of Palmi Sigmarrsons' company Spectra Holdings, Green Stream were operating at way, way below the minimum capital requirements to conduct such a business. They illegally covered this up to the authorities, and the shit is only just hitting the fan now. Palmi on the other hand wasn't quite so successful at lying and the authorities caught up with Spectra.
Worse than that Johan blatantly stole around 8 Million from investors! He valued a nearly worthless part of his business at 8 million, sold it to another part of his business, and pocketed the entire amount himself.
There seems to be no corner, no crevice, of xG Technology that doesn't stink of fraud.
