CHARITABLE BOILER ROOM SCAMMER BRINGS THAI CASH BACK TO UK

(Where a lot of it was scammed from originally)


Well here are two likely lads in dark glasses and it looks like they’re off to the races - not the Royal Enclosure though. 

On the left with the finely polished top is none other than Paul John Hayward, aka Paul Hilton, aka Hong Kong Paul but he is actually at a gathering of football supporters.

One the right is former Hong Kong bar manager Irishman Mickey Doherty turned supremo of the Eclipse Restaurants and Eclipse Management Group in Bangkok and Hong Kong - a harmless name for a group which has been taking over the sleaze in Bangkok, and Pattaya.

Still, among its subsidiaries is a company called Eros.

It’s a far cry from Hayward’s rounds checking on bar owners in the red light area of Nana Plaza, Bangkok, where he holds the lease through a company called the Nana Group and CIMB bank, or holding court in his 'QBar' – But maybe he has come for a bit of adulation.


Bullard
His business friends, the four other members of the ‘Bangkok Five’ the top boiler room scammers in Bangkok, seem to be dropping like flies.

Glendon Bullard, who owned the leases on seven bars in the plaza dropped dead in Pai, Mae Hong Song province of Thailand in March, just two weeks after his wedding.

Hutcherson
Mark Hutcherson who was the subject of a kidnap attempt in Bangkok several years ago, when he laughably claimed to be an oil man, is also reported shot dead in the United States, but this is as yet unconfirmed, and faking one’s death is not unheard of in the boiler room business, and finally Paul Richard Bell died of a long illness last year.

That leaves only Hayward and Jack Fletcher Prather, also American, left from the old bunch of cowboys from a boiler room called Premium Placements.

Still these guys alone could be worth US$100 million apiece from the many ‘share dealing’ ventures they have been involved in (but not of course on paper). They appear to own swathes of Third World countries and small estates in the First World.

Prather
Hayward has of course been doing his best to cover up his ‘boiler room’ image, now posing as a club owner and land dealer (The Nana Group was formed from Eclipse Management and technically Shane Smith, the brother in law of the late Glen Bullard is the paper boss).

Covering up means merely moving the operations out of town – in some cases out of country but boiler rooms have been operating even more comfortably since the new Thai military government took over – ‘pon prayote’ as the Thais say. ‘Everybody benefits’.

That is of course everybody apart from the thousands of victims who have lost their life savings handing them over to virtual ‘brokerages’ such as Jackson and Cole. Several thousand of those were British.

Still the sun is out and Hayward is enjoying his role as the boss of an English football club – not officially of course. Just as in Thailand he has nominees hold his shares for him. Perhaps he does not want to undergo the Football Associations ‘Fit and Proper’ test.

He has been trying to sell out recently.He has discovered that owning a football club can be like throwing money away unless you do it right. He just wanted his money washed.

Bill Haines - Steve Coppell former Reading FC Manager - Haines a boiler room courier with another Briton David Strudwicke was arrested in Pattaya for possessing cocaine (but fined a mere 100 pounds) Cocaine is a Class 2 drug in Thailand. Its unlikely Coppell knew Haines real business but the pub in Pattaya where this picture was taken is a
favourite hang out for boiler room boys

 If I were a buyer I might wait until the club goes for song. If the FA gets its teeth into it the board may have to give it away.  The Chairman of this club is like Hayward a Brummie..

Hayward has been farming Eclipse's cash back in the £millions to the U.K. to buy footballers  – and to do all that one has to do is to pay a Thai General the equivalent in baht. Hayward does not have to worry about shareholders in his Thai companies though - he has bought them all.

They can be anything from bar girls to close and distant relatives - even his dad who ran 'The Dubliner' in Singapore.

Watch this site for the latest developments.  Here’s two clues. First a club chant taken from the net. then a tweet, I do not think this club chant is their main one though!



i go out and drink ten pints,,

i get totally plasterd,,

i go home and beat my wife,,

you dirty northern bA***rds,,

  1. Being a boiler room boss doesn't seem to be good for your health... As some of the jaded sexpats limestone say sagely "never be worth more dead than alive in Thailand." I can only guess Hayward sleeps with one eye open...

  2. By email - Peter Atki -So if Hayward is back in the UK why hasn't he been arrested and thrown in jail? People have been jailed in the UK for non-payment of the TV licence fee and non-payment of Council Tax. Steal millions from Joe Public and the UK Police don't seem to be interested.

    1. No he's not in UK at the moment but does travel regularly,- but more regularly to Philippines.Maybe his is smarter than the NCA of City Fraud Squad

    2. Couldn't be because either the UK police are no less corrupt than many other forces, or they have no tangible evidence against him could it? The Dutch police had to let Bullard's money man go after he was arrested there and he was much more high profile than Hilton.

    3. No its not that. The City Fraud Squad, the National Crime Agency, the FBI and even DEA are all aware of what is going on. The NCA have full list of British victims. The problems are in Thailand and the Philippines where the local police are on the payroll. The NCA were involved in the arrest of this man (I have now added a picture) who was arrested in Pattaya for cocaine possession. This British man was used to courier cash into Thailand from banks in with him is of course Steve Coppell former manager of Reading FC - who became a director of football at the football club in question. The foreign authorities (honest ones) are aware that when boiler rooms are raided the bosses are never arrested (as they pay themselves off). After a raid in Thonglor Soi 25 the mysterious boss of the 'call centre' was named as a Brit called 'Paul' in the Nation newspaper. He was never nicked by I am told (I cannot quote the source) that he paid out only 600,000 Thai baht about 12,000 quid. Its a nice bonus for police - but would make no dent in the operation at all. When questioned the Thais retort that the crime is not committed in Thailand as the victim is abroad. The UK has little sway over the Thai authorities - especially under the military government which does not even answer many Embassy requests. Police co-operation is limited to Thai police making arrests for wanted criminals who have absconded to Thailand where they find they can do as they please - hence Thailands reputation as an international crime hub. As for Andre Hoogeven who was arrested in Holland that I believe was more than a warning shot - and they could not hold him. The DEA together asked the Thai Crime Suppression to raid Bullard's home in Chiang Mai last year to look for drugs (and possibly documents). They found nothing. Bullard, they believe was almost certainly tipped off. The CSD of course were virtually closed down later when 80 per cent of staff were removed over corruption allegations. The very heart of the Thai Police was Crime Inc. These were the people who were calling me in to "assist them' after I was offered a 'get out of jail free card' by a friend of Hayward - which would be given if I closed down this site.
      Hayward believes he has covered himself - as he told me his name is on nothing - further he claimed he does not have bank account or credit card. He will have of course but maybe not in his own name or it is in will not show anything untoward.We're in a new crime age where hundreds of young Brits have turned up in Asia working phones and conning people on VOIP lines pretending to be in some financial capital but more often than not in a Bangkok condo using their cash for cheap sex booze and drugs which are plentiful.

    4. If the DEA and/or FBI are interested that's at least promising. There's always it seems an ambitious agent looming to make his name/career with the scalp of someone who's regarded as untouchable. The UK authorities are utterly useless as they're record of prosecuting financial crimes shows, harlequin anyone?

      Look at Viktor Bout. The backing of the Russian gov couldn't stop him facing justice.

      I wouldn't be surprised if there's some guy with a buzzcut beavering away at a cubicle in the states with Hayward's mug on his wall to motivate him.

    6. Another interesting link is that the club in question had a high profile director of football a few years back who is a regular visitor to both Thailand and pattaya. Only lasted 6 months though.
