WELCOME TO NOTCLOSEBROS!!
Updated: Aug 31
LIKE MOST OTHER FAT- CAT BUSINESSES, THE USURER CLOSE BROS BANK AND THEIR MANY SUBSIDIARIES FLY UNDER FALSE COLOURS. THEY CLAIM RESPECTABILITY!.
IN RECENT CORRESPONDENCE WITH US THEIR PRESENT SOLICITORS PUFF:
"CIF (CLOSE INVOICE FINANCE lTD), IS PART OF CLOSE BROTHERS GROUP, A LEADING UK MERCHANT BANKING GROUP. CBG EMPLOYS OVER 3000 PEOPLE... CBG IS LISTED ON THE LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE AND IS A MEMBER OF THE FTSE 250. CBG IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATED BANKS IN THE UK ( ALL THE REST ARE INSOLVENT!!!).
AS A RESULT OF THE EXTENSIVE AND CONSISTENT USE OF THE MARK, CIF HAS AQUIRED A SUBSTANTIAL REPUTATION AND TRADING GOODWILL IN THE MARK IN RELATION TO THE SUPPLY OF INVOICE FINANCE SERVICES TO SME 'S AND LARGE BUSINESSES THROUGHOUT THE UK, SUCH THAT THE MARK DENOTES THE BUSINESS OF CIF AND NO OTHER".
THEY COULD TELL US THAT CLOSE BANK IS THE 45TH BIGGEST BANK IN THE UK!!
THAT IS WHY THIS WEBSITE IS CALLED NOTCLOSE BROS! WE WOULD'NT TOUCH THEM WITH A BARGEPOLE, TO COIN A PHRASE! NOTCLOSBROS EXISTS TO WARN ANY BUSINESS, LARGE OR SMALL, THAT THIS "BANK", LIKE ALL THE OTHERS, IS PERFECTLY AT EASE IN FALSIFYING DOCUMENTS AND TRADUCING INSOLVENCY LAW AND COMPANY LAW IF ONE OF THEIR OVER-PROMOTED "OFFICERS" SEES FIT TO THROW A BONE TO A BENT (THEY ARE ALL BENT!) INSOLVENCY PRACTITIONER.
HERE'S SUCH A CASE:-
THE FIRST PAGE OF THE FIRST "REPORT TO CREDITORS AND MEMBERS" of MCR llp
(MENZIES CORPORATE RE-STRUCTURING) STATES:
IN THE MATTER OF COSELEY GALVANISING LIMITED: "MCR WERE APPOINTED ON 17 NOVEMBER 2005 BY CLOSE INVOICE FINANCE LIMITED, THE HOLDER OF A QUALIFYING FLOATING CHARGE UNDER PARAGRAPH 14 OF SCHEDULE B1 TO THE INSOLVENCY ACT 1986".
THAT IS A FALSE STATEMENT! THE OH SO RESPECTABLE LENDER, CLOSE, FULLY SECURED, DID NOT HAVE A "FLOATING CHARGE" ON THEIR CLIENT'S ASSETS. THE SOLE ASSET OF COSELEY GALVANISING LTD WAS ITS DEBTOR BOOK, AS CLOSE WERE AWARE. THAT FACT WAS STATED IN THE SHEDULE TO THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES!
ALL THE ASSETS OF COSELEY WERE OWNED BY COSELEY'S PARENT, CKE ENGINEERING LIMITED.
YOU ARE INVITED, DEAR READER, TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE FILED HISTORY OF THE VICTIM COSELEY GALVANISING LTD.
CLOSE, ADVISED BY MCR, UNLAWFULLY PLACED COSELEY INTO ADMINISTRATION BY SIMPLY FILING FORM 2.12B WITH COMPANIES HOUSE. A LEGAL FLOATING CHARGE MUST BE REGISTERED UNDER THE COMPANIES ACT 1986, S395.. NO SUCH REGISTRATION IS THERE.... FULLY SECURED CLOSE INVOICE FINANCE LIMITED UNLAWFULLY GAVE A BENT FIRM OF INSOLVENCY PRACTITIONERS A LICENCE TO CLAIM OWNERSHIP OF SUBSTANTIAL ASSETS OWNED BY COSELEY'S PARENT COMPANY. IT DIRECTLY CAUSED THE LIQUIDATION OF COSELEY'S PARENT COMPANY.
IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU! (IF YOU ARE DAFT ENOUGH TO PATRONISE THESE USURERS).............. JUST IN, FROM A VERY RELIABLE SOURCE... SAY NO MORE!....
" There is SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY going on within Close Brothers Limited who are using forged documents and invoices within the Civil Court, to harass their targets and steal their assets, then laundering the proceeds of crime by false accounting, contravening the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Theft Act 1968"
If you Google me you will note a recent Judgement of the auspicious Business Names Registry concerning me and a firm called Close Bros Invoice Finance Ltd.
In the name of the late Jethro, what 'appened waaas!:
I sued Close Bank plc, trading as Close Invoice Finance Limited, No. 00935949 for their corruption way back in unlawfully appointing Administrators, Stoneman and Clark, to wipe out 2 viable companies I owned in the West Midlands,
Close instructed the second-line solicitors Addleshaw Goddard to defend. Close offerered no defence, their Director Fiona Parkinson saying they had no record or recall of ever having dealt with me.
All the documents of the expensive solicitors stated the defendant to be Close Bros Invoice Finance Limited, No 13328837.
There were 3 hearings in 2020/21, 2 remote,and an all-day in person hearing in Brum before a creepy, wierd Judge with an interesting history. Before the final May 2021 hearing, I looked at the Companies House Register to check on the status of Ms. Parkinson. As I suspected, she had fibbed.
The C.H. website openly stated that the company said to be the Defendant Close Bros Invoice Finance Ltd, No. 13328837 was a legal entity, a dormant company, for sale, price £39.00. For some reason I cannot explain I promptly bought it, paying online by debit card.
Thus, throughout a long legal process, being aware that the real Defendant was a different legal entity, I knew that any judgement and sanction would be void, ab initio.
Surprise, surprise, with their usual perjured evidence, Counsel, dismissive Judge etc. and over £100K fees for the useless "Lawyer", the "court" found for Close, who predictably applied for a Civil Restraint Order on me. At a subsequent 1/2 hour online "hearing", the "go to" senior Judge much used by briefs for the purpose, Justice Marcus Smith QC, obliged.
The Company Names Register has ordained that Close Bros Invoice Finance Limited change its name within a month. The Board of Directors of the company are happy to oblige, the purpose of the charade having been achieved! Why would I want the good name of David Lawrence Fabb being sullied by any connection with Close Bank, other than a website entitled..................... "NOTCLOSEBROS" ?!!!
STOP PRESS: CLOSE BROS INVOICE FINANCE LIMITED IS NOW ALPA INDUSTRIAL LIMITED!!
WHAT MEANS THIS?
In Law, this means the "Judgement" and CRO were obtained by deception and are void!! HIGH- FLOWN SOLICITORS HAVE BEEN EXPOSED AS STUPID AND INCOMPETE NT!!
Does it matter? Be warned, if you ever have the urge to do business with these shysters
MORE JUICY TITBITS, WIDELY PUBLISHED AND SENT TO EVERYMAN AND HIS DOG AT CLOSE AND THEIR BENT SOLICITOR ADDLESHAW GODDARD LLP, ( WE HAVE THE WHOLE NINE YARDS!), ON CURRENT MATTERS BEFORE THE COURTS!!......
"I can confirm an application was submitted to the Magistrates Court on Friday 8.7.22 re: Ms Emerton, Mr Cross (current emplyees) and Mr Derbyshire (ex-employee for whom Close are vicariously liable), for a private prosecution.
......It is very apparent that Mr Derbyshire has caused Close Bros serius reputational damage by his nefarious conduct. Forging documents to give a concocted deal a veneer of legitimacy is outrageous, but for Close Brothers Limited to cover this up by litigation tyranny using shareholders cash to fund such is highly irregular"
AS WITH ALL BANKS, FORGING SIGNATURES, FORGING DOCUMENTS, IS COMMON PRACTICE, ESPECIALLY AMONG THE TERTIARY CREDIT PROVIDERS!! MOVING ON..........
Dateline..... August 10th 2022.... LETTER BEFORE CLAIM POSTED TO MIKE BIGGS, NON-EXEC CHAIRMAN AND MARK PAIN, SENIOR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CLOSE GROUP Plc... They have 14 days to respond....
UPDATE!!! 30 August 2022
It is likely there has been an a..se-kicking party, upon the top brass at Close Bank realising what incompetent dopes their lawyers are!!, They have applied to court requesting the court to change the wording of the invalid, useless CRO willingly supplied by the "go-to" Judge in such matters, Mr. Justice Mervyn Smith. 2 firms of (they think) top drawer solicitors run a case for months with the wrong legal entity named, repeatedly referred to, then when it dawns on them that any judgment/order made on a non-existent party or a legal entity with a different name and Company Number is VOID!!!
MORE FEES ANYONE?.....
