This Blog is dedicated to making public some of the business activities and methods of Liam Collins, David Bone Jr and their associates. In the spring of 2010, the present authors invested in Collins & Bone (C&B), who were offering an enticing 8-10% interest on the basis of buying houses for cash, renovating them and letting them out to students. We were assured that our money was secured against houses that they owned, including their own homes and the properties held by their associated company, Castle & Gatehouse (C&G). We have emails and brochures that confirm these details, as do others who invested on this same basis at around the same time. The idea worked for us for over a year, then in November 2011 they told us they were insolvent. They refused our every request for clear accounts, which led us to suspect wrongdoing. We began an investigation and then started this Blog. We found our suspicions confirmed: other investors had lost sometimes quite large amounts to C&B and its predecessor CBS, and all requests for repayment were adamantly refused. These people use and have used so many names that we found it necessary to compress them into CoBo (for Collins & Bone) and Coboco (for the whole bunch of them – there are quite a few!) Note that there is an index in the margin at the right hand side.

We have been sent a collection of videos showing CoBo doing their street act, which they call FACES OF DISCO. In the video to which we provide a link below, readers will notice how eager the unsuspecting watchers are to come up and put their money in CoBo's coffers, which appear as floppy top hats each with a Union Jack emblazoned on it. That gives the impression that the money being collected is for some selfless purpose or other, but not of course for the purpose of starting to pay off their huge debts. We can only imagine that the Police and the Taxman are standing by in the crowd, enjoying the show. Have they heard the pair boast, we wonder, that they can make £1,000 a day from this street act? Another plus for Corrupt Britain. This should get the BBC to prick their ears up!
