Searchable threads in one long post:

David Levy and Sinclair Research plot to grab control of RCL in March 2016

David Levy along with Elaine Millar engaged the services of law firm Teacher Stern in late March 2016, just 3 days after the initial Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign finished with over £365,000 raised. Elaine Millar was a director of Sinclair Research Limited, and was purporting to represent Retro Computers Limited. This was not true, as Paul Andrews (MD) and Chris Smith (CTO) were the two main active directors of RCL and 50% shareholders in the company.

The shareholders agreement stated that no legal action could be authorised, other than routine debt collection. Planning and plotting to remove fellow shareholders, 50% of active directors, and then later sue and blame them was clearly not routine debt collection.

The leaked bank statements have shown that once David Levy, Suzanne Martin and Sinclair Research Limited gained control of RCL after forcing Andrews and Smith out of the company, they proceeded to rapidly empty all the backer money from Indiegogo into their own pockets. Money meant for manufacturing the Vega+ was instead spent on the two law firms Teacher Stern and Michelmores that were used to force Andrews and Smith from control of RCL and take over the bank account.

This leak shows that despite Levy's repeated claims, it was actually David Levy and SRL that broke the shareholders agreement. Presumably Levy's eyes lit up once he realised the large sum of money that was available in the bank account if he could just remove both Paul Andrews and Chris Smith from the picture.

Dear David

Please find our letter of engagement attached for your kind review.

As you will note, in section 4, we ask that you please transfer £5,000 plus VAT on account of work to be undertaken. You will also see that we have included at the top of that same page (4) a paragraph about you, not Sinclair, being responsible for fees, as we discussed.

I will keep hold of the hard copy letter and give it to you on Friday. What time do you and Elaine expect to come in to our offices?

Kind regards

Clare

David,

The KYC documentation we have on file for you is out of date. Do you still live at 34 Courthope Road? Please confirm so that I can finalise our engagement letter.

If I could ask you to bring your passport and a recent utility bill on Friday so we can update our records. We will need the same from Elaine but I will mention that in our email to her.

Kind regards

Clare
