Serial fraudster Tim Schools back in business as a 'crisis coach'

January 17, 2017 by David Marchant
Serial fraudster Timothy Schools, who swindled thousands of investors out of more than £100 million via his Cayman Islands-domiciled Axiom Legal Financing Fund, is back in business … as a "crisis coach"!!!

At his newly-created, Schools claims that his long list of business and personal failures and oodles of negative publicity about him on the Internet make him the ideal chap to help you manage a crisis … for a fee, of course.

As is typical with fraudsters, Schools portrays himself as a victim on the site, claiming he has "felt shame for things I haven’t done and endured the knowing whispers of those who believe there's no smoke without fire".

He boasts about "making millions", selling "two successful law firms", and having a "fantastic" family. The reality, of course, is that the "millions" came from fraud, the "successful law firms" were spectacularly unsuccessful (they went bust with massive debts) and were only "sold" to co-conspirators in sham deals that allowed Schools to strip out money fraudulently obtained from investors, and several members of his "fantastic" family participated in, and profited from, the Axiom scam.

Unsurprisingly, the word 'fraud' is never mentioned on the site, nor is there any reference to him being struck off as a solicitor in the UK for professional misconduct or criminally investigated by the Serious Fraud Office.

If Schools lived in the US, he'd likely now be serving a lengthy prison sentence for masterminding a substantial fraud.

Fortunately for him (and unfortunately for society as a whole), he lives in crime-friendly Britain and, therefore, remains free to continue unleashing his lies on unsuspecting clients.
