    Howard Williams Dodgy Background

    Interesting article posted on UK Property Traders this morning, that I thought tribes would like.

    A convicted South Wales conman Howard Williams’  – a man who pretends he is a multi-millionaire and offers financial advice to vulnerable people at property presentations.

    Fraud , deception, jail sentences, tax avoidance, bankruptcy

    Who has sought money from unsuspecting members of the public through a crowd-funding and currently in the property sector doing Training Videos, Quick Sale Properties and so forth.

    It was published yesterday by The Eye.

    Watch your six.

    Wow!  That is quite some revelation.  Thank you for sharing Adam.

    These stories are always very sad to hear as there will be much heartbreak and financial loss and many people's lives may have been impacted negatively and dreams shattered.

    The human pain behind these stories can often be devastating which is why prevention is better than cure, and PT will always host factual warnings and try and educate about the due diligence process to avoid such rogues.

    Howard Williams is another Facebook guru selling a ticket to see a unicorn.  He isn't the first and he won't be the last:



    I've heard rumblings about him recently and then he popped up on a discussion I was involved with last week:



    See - Signs you are about to become a victim of a property investment scam 

    There is another facebook property guru, also based in Spain, who I have considerable concerns about and I am sure it won't be long before he crashes and burns and a lot of people lose a lot of money.

    It's an old post that someone shared on Facebook.

    A very real casualty of guru-ism

    Another bandit exposed

    Though with a record like his, one wonders what level of due diligence people did to miss his 2002 & 2010 bankruptcies before handing over their wedge

    Also, I suspect that the beating & broken legs deterred him more from drugs deals than his 2012 jail term did to deter him from more property seminars

    A number of people have informed me that Howard Williams spoke at pin meetings and I have found this picture that seems to confirm that:

    Interesting the image you have posted Vanessa as the eye says "Williams does not tell clients he is a convicted criminal"..... Well he did a podcast at least.

    I think perhaps Howard Williams had better send a legal letter to EYE if anything they have said is not factual.
