Catching up with Croucher, the “Bellend from Crouch end”
It started with a simple conversation between two world weary comrades, fighting Copyright Trolls and discussing the latest one Mr Robert Croucher, who had been arrested and then banged up for beating an Uber driver outside of an elite (elitist) Gentleman’s club in London. We had mused how a man such as Mr Croucher could ever be admitted to such an establishment, even as a “Plus One” (turns out he wasn’t).
We had began to discuss how just before he was pulled crying to the cells to start his incarceration, why he had begged the Magistrate not to imprison him, as he was such a hotshot and his business encompassed thousands of people all over the Country and whom without his, to be fair, rather dubious experience, would die and wither away. My comrade Bpaw, had pointed out that the very fact he had no faith in any of his staff to carry the company forward in his absence demonstrated what he thought of them all. It may not have been such a good idea, mentioning Ms Juliet Takacs in the message, although she had already piped up in a different thread, attempting to legitimise the conduct of the scam that is Copyright Trolling.
Suddenly after just a few interactions, in which she tried to justify the indefensible, Ms Takacs had disappeared, and Robert Croucher had appeared, we thought, ..”that’s odd, he is in prison… right?”, I mean 20 weeks had not elapsed, it was a valid thought, a reasonable conclusion that Bobby “Basher” Croucher was still in prison for his “vicious” assault on a taxi driver, whose only crime it seemed was to be there to witness the embarrassment of Croucher throwing his weight around and screaming and shouting about flats he had built in Mayfair in front of his Hungarian girlfriend, and the bemused doormen of the Gentleman’s club he had tried but failed to get into.
What followed, we did not expect, could NOT have predicted, the seemingly flaky, thin skinned Mr Croucher, seemed to lose his sh*t is the only way I can describe it.
Mr Croucher engaged in several days of exchanges, railing about how life always goes his way, and how great he is, my colleague pointed out he was in prison for serious assault, to which he responded, “You think I am in Prison”, this seemed a fairly reasonable point to make as it had been all over the local press 2 and also the Register, the BBC the Scum, and other press outlets had covered the attack and sentencing.
Mr Croucher pointed out that we should, “watch out for a High Court Judgement that had gone against us” coming up in the following weeks, having not been summoned to the High Court I could be quite assured whatever the case was, it had nothing to do with me, or any of my other colleagues. Mr Croucher hit out at the doormen at the Gentlemen’s Club outside of which he had assaulted the Uber driver so viciously that they had to intervene, calling them “Drug Dealers”, or “Extortionists”, as you can imagine, pretty heavy accusations to make from an average joe in the street, but from a big shot CEO of a Mayfair company? Bizarre
Torrentfreak published an account of how Croucher had been released and an extract of a press release, I am guessing this was done to try and show the World that Hatton&Berkeley are some kind of company of distinction, as opposed to the collection of “scum sucking bottom feeding algae eaters” as some others have commented, including a Mr D.N.Ukem (tongue_in_cheek). The article is an interesting read, the Press release is laughable if it was meant to be serious, attempting to paint the doormen who intervened in his assault on Mr Hussein as “Drug dealers” and “extortionists”, and that he Croucher was taking advise on prosecuting the doormen at the club AND the victim of his beating.
Around this time was news breaking that in the US Hatton and Berkeleys partner Patrick Achaches (Maverickeye) other shell company Guardaley had been caught up in such fraudulent behaviour that the Federal authorities could be investigating them.
Into the New Year and we we now have a situation where Robert Croucher, has RESIGNED from his Hatton & Berkeley companies, and his Hungarian partner Ms Brigitta (or Brigite) Kudor has been appointed as sole Director in his place. Ms Kudor was with Mr Croucher at the assault on the Uber Driver, so it isn’t like it is a clean break for reputation purposes, it is just odd.
Even stranger than all this is the fact that one of the Companies has gone into LIQUIDATION and had its name changed, and a different company has had its name CHANGED to seemingly protect the name of the company. This may be legitimate, although I doubt it, the timing is though outrageous.
It turns out the official receiver has shut down one company due to a debt to Office Angels this company used to be called CMI BUSINESS GROUP LTD – Croucher changed the name of it to COLLINS MAXWELL INWRAP LTD company number 09387353 prior to the receiver getting involved. An attempt to hide what had happened.
He’s then used Brigitte (Kudor) to form a replacement company with the old name CMI BUSINESS GROUP LTD company number 10523070 to attempt to evade the official receiver further and continue trading:
A contributor to the cause is quoted as saying;”I’m fairly sure this is a criminal offence on both their parts as official receiver must be complied with by law and all company assets surrendered when placed in liquidation.”. We here at ACS:BORE, cannot verify the legality of this, but it was described as, “a bit whiffy” by a Lawyer we contacted.
This paints a picture of a man and a business out of control.
(We have included the tweet exchanges as evidence of a kind, sadly the tweets were deleted by Mr Croucher, or someone acting for him, (more likely), and so what we have is from archive. It should at least show the kind of people we are dealing with.)
UPDATE: Seems the tweets were offline, thanks Strawman, for the heads up.
