I would ask the question Mullard whether they were helping victims of elder abuse, or guiding those who wish to perpetrate elder abuse. Crossley is well versed in the latter, and as you say, nobody does grannies like @thebowdenator.

I know I have mentioned 5 Oak Way (Crossley Mansion) being for sale in the past, but it has definitely been sold now.

Well, Warrens Law went in to administration on 15:44 on 26 April 2019. I just find that funny! 15:43 they were solvent. 15:44 Quantum Leap, sorry, Quantuma LLP took over as administrators! Never mind!

Anyway, Crossley sells his house for £725K in February and Warrens is in administration in April.

You could form an opinion on that.

What is the state of copyright trolling in the UK? I'm new to the country. Articles on Torrentfreak would suggest it's died down.

I'm not well up on "Bankruptcy" but how can "Fat Andy" sell his house for £725,000 when he declared himself Bankrupt.

He tried for long enough, so has he achieved his goal and finally duped the Legal system at last?

How can this disreputable and disgraced specimen of a solicitor get away with it!

I'm confused.

Either whatever net beneficial interest he had in the house was bought out from the trustee/OR, or it was nil or de minimis.

The house sold recently for little more than was paid for it prior to the 2008 financial crash. Taking sale costs into account and the fact that me may not have been the sole owner, it may well be that at the time of the bankruptcy order and the three years time limit that follows, that his interest was valueless in the context of bankruptcy proceedfings.

I am at present watching a BBC4 showing of a program

"From Ice To Fire -the incredible Science of Temperature:

Presented and narrated by "Dr Helen Czerski"!!!

Forgive me but is this the same person associated with ACS et al as an "Expert witness" in "Fat Andy" and others "Speculative Invoicing Scam?"

Stressed - to answer your post from a couple of months ago, there are actually two Jonathan Cohen QCs.

I have come across them both and Jonathan Cohen QC from 4 Paper Buildings is a lovely chap and a real gentleman, who would have nothing to do with GEIL, TCYK, etc. He is the one who has just been appointed a High Court judge.

The other Jonathan Cohen QC (from Littleton Chambers) picked up the brief from the scammers and has acted for them since at least 2012.

I have read over the judgment from July and in my view, it is basically curtains for the scammers. They have had years to get their case in order. However all signs point to the likelihood that the brief to Cohen was a dog's dinner. Sure, Cohen then tried to salvage it with the amendments per Annex 1, but even that couldn't ameliorate a fundamentally flawed application.

They could file again, with an amended application, but they may be advised against taking the risk. They have already taken a bath on costs in respect of the hearing in July, and they may find themselves further in the hole if they try again. In any event, quite how they will come up with the missing evidence is unclear, and it may just not be worth the cost outlay - they only sent 749 letters, and fewer than 100 settled? They should quit while they are behind.

Thanks for the update Strawman.

Also. Came across this article. Maybe the more IT and legally savvy members may be able to use it if it has any relevance to the "Scams" in this country, and if so advise members on the procedure to acheive its aims.

It seems to have advice which may or may not be added to the excellent and informative "Speculative handbook".

Hi stressed. Hope you are well, and all is good my friend!

Getty Images have been, and it seems always will be, one of those low lifes of the internet.

They offer what the internet is all about (Visual content) which is created by creators, but copyrighted by scum bags, and outsourced to bots to seek infringers.

Was a victim of these vermin myself where I work. Not long after my LoC from ACS:Law, so at the time very upset. I had to do the digging myself to realise they "monitored" a website hosted on a Chinese server for a Chinese company who mimicked the company name where I work. Their bots couldn't decipher real life and just decided on similarities.

That is speculative invoicing, and that is also Getty Images.

The difference with speculative invoicing and Getty Images from my perspective is ACS:Law, under the direction of Andrew Crossley were unrepentant in their quest to operate a scam purely for money even to those who denied the alleged infringement, whilst my experience with Getty Images was the phone call I made to them required very little effort to tell them their evidence was completely flawed, which they said sorry and the case is dropped.

ACS:Law operated within a sphere of alleged copyright infringement within a flawed UK Court judgement, whilst Getty just send out completely obscure claims based on algorithms that a bot has decided, for which a phone call from a victim to a well trained call-operative has to say the right words to make them drop the case.

Different levels of a scam, but they are a scam.

Can I just say Strawman that you bridge the line of technical and basic that makes anyone understand. That is a rare gift, and I suppose you use that gift in the work that you do for a living.

I am glad that you are on our side, like having Mullard on our side in all these years.

I, as like others like Hickster will be very happy digging and annoying those who are copyright trolls, and that is our talent. But those like Strawman and Mullard are those who examine the truth as best as they see it, with the evidence they see. That is an amazing talent which I will always be appreciative of.

In my thought, I was expecting a fight! Copyright Trolls obtained an NPO etc. I was on high alert to dig the dirt.

The true situation is the "incoming" scenario we have been used to in the past, where innocent people register on slyck.com and ask for help, hasn't happened.

It's been a while, and I so much am glad of this!
