Finding Dave Ames’ hidden assets: in Thailand!

Thailand asset hunt helps secure Asset Freezing Court Order against Dave Ames

Did Richard Haughton hide cash for David Ames?

Primary amongst the big questions asked by fleeced Harlequin investors is “Where did all that money go?”

Thailand-based investigative journalist Andrew Drummond believes he might have found the trail to some of the missing assets – in Thailand companies associated with Richard Haughton, a friend and business partner of David Ames.

How likely is it that when Harlequin took some £500 million in cash that the silver-tongued Ames didn’t squirrel some of that away for himself? Not likely, most folks would say – and Thailand looks good for some of it. 

Drummond’s latest article lists some of the Thai companies he believes are associated with Haughton and Ames. As was the Ames style in the Caribbean, ‘investors’ in the Ames / Haughton projects in Thailand found that few if any units were built. In Barbados and other locations in the Caribbean, Ames took deposits for 6000 units and built 300. The numbers of victims are unclear in Thailand because some of the “Harlequin” projects were apparently advertised and run under different names.

Hmmmmmmm… that’s interesting, isn’t it? Why would Harlequin / Ames do that? There must be a perfectly legitimate reason for not using your brand, right? (He said knowingly…)
