DUNE LAWRENCE, Bloomberg reporter is implicated in the Jon Carnes crime family stock fraud.
Dune Lawrence is not only a racist, admitted to be technologically challenged, but she’s been blowing her own horn for years as an “expert on China,” until Dune Lawrence’s self-proclaimed fantasy fell into the waiting traps of a notorious stock market fraudster, criminal Jon Carnes.
Speaking bumpy Chinese in an accent like a Beijing farmer, Dune Lawrence likes to tell people she is fluent in the language. To the good American folks in Iowa, Dune Lawrence probably sounds impressive. To a native Chinese speaker, however, “Listening to Dune Lawrence speaking Chinese is like eating rice with spicy Sichuan tofu made with Greek yogurt … it’s gross.” This comes from a source familiar with Lawrence’s past.

Sources told investigators that Lawrence had studied in Beijing years ago while working as a writer. Due to poor job performance, Lawrence was reportedly kicked out of China after her writing assignments dried up. Unable to make ends meet, she ended up working for minimum wage in New York and barely surviving. Read more: SLICK BLOOMBERG REPORTER DUNE LAWRENCE OILED IN SMEAR, CORRUPTION.

Interesting enough, of the hundreds of articles Lawrence has written about China or the Chinese, not a single article was even slightly positive. In her entire oeuvre, Bloomberg readers won’t find anything good about the 5,000-year-old country — according to her, it is a culture and a people that are about nothing but lies and corruption.
DUNE LAWRENCE, BASHING CHINA IS A GOOD BUSINESS…
“Bashing the Chinese could be a profitable niche for me,” Lawrence told a source. “The Chinese don’t vote, the Chinese don’t sue people, they just sit there taking the shit. How much better can it get? I am making a living out of it!”
How Deep Is Dune Lawrence Implicated in the Jon Carnes Fraud?
Since the fraudster Jon Carnes was captured by law enforcement, Lawrence has turned radio silent, refusing to answer basic questions about her relationship with Carnes. Lawrence’s employer, Bloomberg News, was also mute about making Lawrence available for comments. Bloomberg’s lawyer Thomas Golden was also quiet. What do they have to hide from the American public? Plenty.
According to law enforcement, after the criminal Jon Carnes had published a fraudulent report on his AlfredLittle.com, the share price for Silvercorp listed on the New York Stock Exchange dropped 20 percent, wiping out more than $275 million in American shareholders value and netting Carnes $2.8 million in illicit profits. Carnes authored the negative report under the fake name of “Alfred Little” along with a fake biography that included having 35 years of investing experience, being a former accountant at Deloitte Consulting and having represented Coca-Cola, Proctor & Gamble and Budweiser on their investments in China.
Then, according to a glowing article about Carnes authored by Lawrence called “Short Seller Drops Muddy Waters Model For SEC,” she praised him for having “made over $10 million” off investors. Readers would be smart to ask the following questions: How much did Lawrence get paid to promote Carnes? And what has Bloomberg done to prevent collusion between frauds and its writers?
The collapse of the Jon Carnes crime family marked a rare and successful collaboration between the U.S. and Chinese law enforcement in their joint efforts to combat frauds, with close coordination between the FBI’s Beijing office and top officials in China’s formidable State Security Bureau.
The conviction of the Carnes crime family followed Canadian and U.S. securities regulators’ similar findings of crimes committed by Carnes through his fraudulent EOS Holdings. Last December, Canadian regulators announced Carnes’s indictment alleging securities frauds. In a press release, the British Columbia Securities Commission, assisted by the SEC and the FBI, called Carnes “a major fraud.”
In prosecuting Jon Carnes, Candian law enforcement put out a press release warning the investing public of Jon Carnes’ illegal activities: Securities regulator charges Silvercorp short-seller Jon Carnes with fraud. Disguised under a fictitious name “Alfred Little”, Jon Carnes and Rooddy Boyd engaged in massive illegal stock short selling schemes on Deer Consumer Products, SilverCorp and many others. Read a public statement from Silvercorp Metals in its lawsuit against Jon Carnes: Sivercorp sues Jon Carnes for securities fraud, and Deer Consumer Products, Inc.’s lawsuit against Jon Carnes.
As reported in “Canada’s New York Times,” The Globe and Mail, Carnes “lied about his investing experience and created a fake research group, fake names and fake research in order to help him profit from his negative reports, including his report on Silvercorp.” According to the regulator, Carnes started eyeing Silvercorp in June 2011.
At the time, one of his employees started gathering information for the negative Silvercorp report and said, “Let’s whack [Silvercorp] before others beat us to [it].” Carnes started building his short position in Silvercorp in August 2011. When Carnes caught wind that other short sellers were targeting Silvercorp, he said, “We gotta nail [Silvercorp] quick. I think everyone is about to be onto it.”
Neither Lawrence nor Bloomberg News has agreed to be interviewed on the record, citing “the Jon Carnes matter is under investigation.” Meanwhile, Dune Lawrence was implicated in another fraud – AgFeed Industries.
