James Stunt admits he was so rich he did not have a front door key for his own £10million home

That Stunt was rich.

Not sure whether I believed it was some recycling of his wife’s money or something to do with his family connections. The family best described as “interesting”. Providing, possibly a cash flow but not wealth in the sense claimed.

But I never did believe the stories about summat on the internet, art dealing and so on. As I’ve mentioned before that foray into being a gold dealer being what poor people think of as a rich man’s business instead of what it is, one of the world’s most efficient and thus profit light trades around.

“Mr Stunt said the safe had been completely emptied. “The whole thing had been cleaned out. There was literally not a receipt left. They took both my passports – my diplomatic and citizen ones.”

Seriously?

  1. James Stunt admits he was so rich he did not have a front door key for his own £10million home

    Maybe whoever actually owned it didn’t trust him enough to give him one.

  2. They took both my passports – my diplomatic and citizen ones

    Oh. That old lark. The “Diplomatic Passport” lark. I thought that gimmick had died with W.G. Hill and the old Scope International Limited newsletters of the 80’s?

    Legally avoid taxes by being a Perpetual Traveller or become an Honorary Consul for Guatemala and other 3rd world sh*tholes for only £999. Get them before they close the loophole!

    All of which amounted to little more than “Tax evasion for idiots”. Even my father (who was a 419 scammers wet dream) never fell for that one.

    Why am I not surprised that someone like James Stunt has.

    Then again, there’s a lot of it about.

  3. To be fair, for a podgy nonce-faced cashwasher to net an attractive* heiress is more impressive than his pretend wealth.

    *kind of, she still looks like a dead-eyed Ukrainian hooker…

    For all his professed love of his daughters and showering them with his wealth, Bernie Ecclestone took a surprisingly non-indulgent approach of Petra’s getting married to such an obviously dodgy geezer as James Stunt (even the name sounds like something he got out of a wheaties box).

    Is that because Bernie was involved with Stunt in some way? (Perhaps as the “cash washer” for his Formula 1 side deals?)

    I don’t know, but James Stunt’s entire lifestyle smells as dodgy as week old fish. I literally don’t believe a word of it.

  5. “I lost diamonds, some gifted to me. I’m not going to say from who in this court because it was a deceased member of the royal family”

    pull the other one mate its got bells on.

  6. pull the other one mate its got bells on.

    Bells presumably fashioned by the House of Fabergé and given to him by Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia herself.

    Having expressed my incredulousness about this fat idiots claims of fame and fortune I must admit to being just a bit fascinated as to what the actual truth is. Probably have to wait until he’s served his multi-year term for fraud and tax evasion though.

  7. John G- yeah i wonder. One option is the security guard is in on it. He thinks 5 years(?) porridge worth a cut of millions. Trouble with that is – as serious time gets closer and closer and very real very easy for doubts to creep in. Is this guy i’ve done a deal with the most trust worthy of citizens. A lot of people would not be able to keep it up in the face of police and prosecution offering to help. Another option security guard has been done up like a kipper. Some costume jewelry was repeatedly dangled in front of him and some guy (a mate of James) says if he ever needed to fence anything he’d give a good price. Once Security guy gives in to temptation then fence disappears and suddenly plod has an anonymous source that fingers him.
