Allegations of Fraud, 20% Drop In Stock Price, Market Manipulations, Internal Investigations: Nothing To See Here, Move On... Featured

On Wednesday, 17 April 2013 I queried "What Should The US Do If One Of The Biggest Banks In Ireland Blatantly Defrauded US Investors?" In such query, I levied some heavy accusations at the Bank of Ireland. Its worth a read if you haven't done so already. Well, two months later, I read in the Irish Independent the following: Internal probe at Bank of Ireland

AN inquiry is under way within Bank of Ireland's private banking division, as the bank's internal auditors investigate what have been described as "possible irregularities".

The Sunday Independent has learned that Bank of Ireland's auditors have been inside the division, which counts many of Ireland's most wealthy and powerful individuals among its clients, at various stages over the past six weeks, conducting what one source described as a "thorough examination" of its activities.

Hmmmm. Now, that's interesting. Six weeks ago would have been about two weeks after I dropped my bomb of a scorching missive on sheeple who are to this day, much too trusting of the banking system. That two weeks is just about the amount of time it would have taken a big corporation to act on the information that I levied (if it was in a rush). Wholly a coincidence, I'm sure!

The bank's audit team is seeking to establish if any of its private banking clients' affairs have been handled in any way improperly.

The bank's management is understood to be treating the matter "very seriously". Commenting on this, one well-placed source said: "The investigation isn't complete yet. It's difficult to say when it will be complete. We are obliged to follow due process before we come to any conclusions."

Asked if Bank of Ireland had brought in any third parties to assist with the investigation or if it had made contact with gardai even on a preliminary basis, the source said: "No, the matter is being dealt with internally and all appropriate procedures are being followed.

... The source stressed that clients of the division that is under investigation would be notified immediately in the event that the bank uncovered any evidence to show that their affairs had been inappropriately managed.

I have to be honest, I hate it when people ask me for free advice. After all, if my advice/opinion/knowledge was thought to be worth something, then people ought to act like it, no? Well, methinks one should make an exception to the rule this one time and offer some free advice to the "internal audit team" at the Bank of Ireland. I know, I know... Nobody asked me, but since they haven't bothered to bring in any third parties yet, why not invite myself and crash the party?

Let's, once again, reference my post from two months ago - What Should The US Do If One Of The Biggest Banks In Ireland Blatantly Defrauded US Investors? wherein I will update the ADR performance chart for the bank if Ireland.

As you can see, there was a significant and material loss taken by ADR holders during the time in question at BoI. But, following the auspices of this story in the Independent, yet using our BoomBustBlog investigative resources, there's much more here than meets the eye. A document that I made available to professional/institutional subscribers details how the Bank of Ireland sought and received an exemption from SEC rule 102 of Regulation M (click here to brush up on your US securities law). In short, this exemption allowed the bank to literally trade in its own securities, provided it wouldn't abuse the privilege. See an excerpt below...

bank-of-ireland-060711-1-4 Page 01bank-of-ireland-060711-1-4 Page 02


This letter worked literal wonders for the Bank of Ireland stock within days of being issued. Even more miraculous is the fact that it wasn't public information at the time yet the public somehow knew to bid the shares up by nearly 100%. Hmmmm! Coincidence, eh?

image007

Even more damning is the fact that the alleged historical trading volume in the shares in question (a pertinent fact used as an argument to get the Reg M exemption in the first place) spiked by nearly 5X!!!

image009 

...Bank of Ireland Private Banking is, according to its website, "Ireland's largest and oldest private bank. The country's leading entrepreneurs, business leaders, professionals and families trust us to manage their wealth with discretion and integrity."

 If the private banking client's capital was used to churn these shares, then.... Oh Boy~~~

Per WikipediaMarket manipulation is a deliberate attempt to interfere with the free and fair operation of the market and create artificial, false or misleading appearances with respect to the price of, or market for a securitycommodity or currency. Market manipulation is prohibited in the United States under Section 9(a)(2)[1] of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and in Australia under Section s 1041A of the Corporations Act 2001. The Act defines market manipulation as transactions which create an artificial price or maintain an artificial price for a tradable security.

Examples

  • Churning: "When a trader places both buy and sell orders at about the same price. The increase in activity is intended to attract additional investors, and increase the price."

If the stock was churned, the price would have increased temporarily until the performance numbers of the loss making bank would have came to fore. But then again, what would management have to gain by manipulating the stock in such fashion. After all, bankers aren't incentivized or measured by share prices, bonuses, year and reviews, etc., right???

I have released information that has apparently caused quite a bit of high level C-suite types to head for the hills, reference BoomBustBlog Hard Hitting, Bleeding Edge Research Results In 2nd High Level Ouster/Resignation In The UK & Euroland

If you believe that the information above actually identifies a gross misrepresentation of fact, omission or outright fraud, simply contact the SEC and let them know that Reggie Middleton suggested they look into it. You can actually use this form to convey my message


fraud

Those of you in Ireland who may not want to get "Cyprus'd", ie. have your bank accounts fund another bailout, should contact the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement. Click this link, and tell them Reggie from NYC sent 'ya. Seriously! The reason why Irish banks haven't been reformed was because not enough light has been shown on the activities. See a valid attempt at such here. This is the time, for the tea leaves foretell the next bank collapse & bailout will be funded directly out of your bank accounts, reference Ireland, You May Very Well Be Bust & I Make No Apologies For What I'm About To Show You for those who don't believe me. See Global Banking Crisis - How & Why YOU Will Get "Cyprus'd" for an example of a bank statement of a Cypriot who didn't take the regulation of his bank seriously!!!

    Flat shoes a greater replace on comfort

    I became communicating with the actor who have been in the city for all Toronto International Film Festival and also the launch of your new form of hair products she's promoting [url=http://www.ProjectorsPlus.ca/]north face canada[/url] with David Babaii, her favourite hairdresser.

    Hudson had wafted to your Hazelton Hotel in [url=http://www.caisu.ca/]pandora jewelry[/url] vixenly red patent leather pumps by Brian Atwood, worn running a white Lv dress. 4 hours [url=http://www.3weekcough.ca/]the north face outlet[/url] earlier, I was able to seen her at Richard Branson's Virgin Unite lunch at Lobby, in another couple lofty heels.

    "I walk through out Long island in heels. I had not a concern for it," Hudson replied lake asked the house trauma of Festival Feet had kicked in yet. Besides, she added, "Brian Atwood designs for Bally rather then only is he a great person, he designs comfy shoes."

    Toms Shoes are more my style. The spongesoled espadrilles I used begin the Luxury Lounge at Lobby the morning past felt like slippers. The best part is, they're $55.

    "We these [url=http://www.smallchangeexpo.ca/]north face vancouver[/url] in gold, silver, black, speckled pink and electric blue," notes Nicole Bitove, coowner of Canopy Blue, a [url=http://www.offthewagon.ca/]pandora charms[/url] different boutique at 2582 Yonge St. Bitove, a wellknown face about the Toronto modelling scene, opened local store come early july with partner Lisa Gnat of Kick Maternity.

    Smythe, Mint and Jay Godfrey is a labels carried there, and even Toms Shoes, presents male shoes to a bit of a baby in need of assistance each pair sold. A warm style for fall: a red boot that wraps for a Tensor bandage, for $130.

    Basic cool flats around, who should suffer? However not are there more loony shoes on the runways, or with regard to the TIFF party circuit.

    A nicely chic basketball wife attending a Zegna [url=http://www.ProjectorsPlus.ca/]north face canada[/url] event at Harry Rosen confessed which she would have been [url=http://www.smallchangeexpo.ca/]the north face outlet[/url] a student in agony [url=http://www.smallchangeexpo.ca/]north face vancouver[/url] from her fourinch moccasinstyle pumps, and limped away to purchase a chair.

    "I'll be contacting people and maybe they are hanging onto tables, their feet hurt significantly," chuckles Jane Apor, a jewelry designer and [url=http://www.smallchangeexpo.ca/]north face vancouver[/url] Toronto Life magazine's super shopper. Apor has back pain that forestalls her from wearing heels. Yet this woman is legitimately presentable, attending festivities in silver Birkenstocks and gold Grecian sandals through with a terrific French pedicure. Using the Dsquared2 visible on Sunday night, Apor shone in grey patent boots from Browns.

    Like Apor, I am a a part of the Flat Pack women preferring to have firmly planted for the ground.

    Wetenhall was producing clothing freebies to stars in almost TIFF gift lounge, and singing the [url=http://www.offthewagon.ca/]pandora charms[/url] praises of French Connection's newly expanded shoe collection, priced from $98 to $258 and offered in Torontoarea stores.

    FYI: At Holt Renfrew's John Varvatos for Converse party on Friday night, Teatro Verde's Shawn Gibson stated an Assouline shopinshop are going to be component of his expanded decor store on Yorkville Ave. next spring. "When I opened [url=http://www.ProjectorsPlus.ca/]http://www.ProjectorsPlus.ca/[/url] Teatro 12 rice, publishers been essential to convince me to keep books," says Gibson, who also stocks limited editions by Visionaire. "Now I sell a tremendous volume of dollars of books annually."
