    I agree with this. Adam Barton owns 40% of the ordinary shares at FB and 40% of the Ordinary A shares. He is also the founder and a director of Generate FS where Darren Roberts claims (LinkedIn) to have worked while Darren Upton was in prison. So if DJR's LinkedIn is false, Adam knows, which means he knew all along that DJR was not giving a true history, and F-B was in on the deception from the beginning. If DJR=DJU, F-B knew the whole time. I wouldn't stick with them.

    I have said that I don't think Dynamo knew. But I don't think I'd be staying with them. Either they actually did know or they are lax about their internal procedures for deciding who has access to sensitive information.

    Darren Roberts was not just a low level flunky, he was allowed to use the title Head of Contractor Services. Like here. If DJR is DJU, I can't believe they put him in that position without knowing. Maybe that could happen 5-10 years after he got out of prison, and built up some recent work history, maybe they wouldn't check carefully that far back. But within a couple years of him getting out? Not very credible, is it? And if he isn't, I can't understand why they won't say so.

    So I'm starting to think there's a strong possibility Dynamo did know. Even if they didn't, it's a bad look.

    I'd be moving elsewhere if they can't come up with something more substantive than 'we can't say anything.' Too bad. If they really can't say anything it is either because they knew, or because they dropped the ball badly.

    Only my opinion.

    AIUI Dynamo aren't saying anything because it's sub judice so we should cut them a little slack.

    But certainly I wouldn't stay with F-B nor, on this evidence, Dynamo.
    Blog? What blog...?

    The identity or alleged identity of a former employee would presumably only be
    sub judice
    if that question of identity was part of a legal case.

    In any event, they either knew, or they didn't verify his identity and work history before giving him that role, which would be bizarre. Or, they did know, and DJR != DJU, in which case it's hard to imagine what outstanding legal matter would prevent them from confirming that. Or at least, from making a generic statement that 'we confirm the identity and work history of all employees.' They aren't even saying that.

    Agree with all of this.

    It's a terrible look for Hentons / Dynamo, FB and Generate.

    Was so close to moving to dynamo a couple of months ago due to the recommendations here. Glad I couldn’t be bothered now.

    As maybe Dominic was part of the same sock drawer?

    He's got a linkedin and work history suggests he's ex-Hentons/Dynamo and he's got a picture as well (not a cartoon character). Unless, this was all part of a elaborate cover up, in which case it would make a very good movie. They should re-make The Accountant and get Ben Affleck to play DU !!

    I reckon he knew it was DU.
