Mr Andy Z. Fan is better than you

This is possibly the finest biography ever submitted to the SEC. [You can find the original here.]


Background of Mr. Andy Z. Fan:

Mr. Andy Fan is a prominent Chinese-American businessman with outstanding connections with the Chinese government, long standing relationships with Chinese media, and has a strong fan base in China where he has appeared in various forms of media over the past few years. He was once the interpreter for China's Head of State -- Prime Minister Li Peng. Later, he was awarded a full scholarship to study on the graduate level in the U.S., and was introduced to former U.S. President Bill Clinton by the University President and served as Clinton's Chinese interpreter.   Mr. Andy Fan's popular book "Clinton and My Life" has made him an idol to millions of Chinese students, and a well-respected sought-after public speaker.

Mr. Fan is currently President, Director, and Chairman of the Board of AF Ocean Investment Management Company [OTCBB:AFAN].  AF Ocean’s mission is to help Wall Street investors identify and work with respectable and reputable Chinese counterparts and companies and assist Chinese corporations to understand that the only way to benefit from the world’s biggest capital market is through strict and consistent adherence to the rules and regulations that govern companies listed on American stock exchanges.

His nine popular books in China, including the No. 1 best seller in China in June 2011, also make him a frequent guest on TV, as well as being followed and interviewed by media everywhere he goes. He has been on numerous magazine covers, including “Chinese Business Leader”, “China Celebrity”, “China Private Capital”, “World Chinese Businessman”, “Discovery”, “Commerce”, “The View”, among others. To millions of fans and their parents across the country, Andy is their hero and a super star. Due to his popularity, he is often invited as the guest of honor and speaker by many prominent organizations, such as being invited to Nobel Laureates Beijing Forum and Forbes China City Investment Forum. In 2009, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Mr. Andy Fan was chosen to be one of “China’s 60 Role Models in 60 Years”, and his portrait was printed on a Chinese Postage Stamp that same year.

He left out the part where he designed the Patriots' goal line defense ...

so...why is such an esteemed member of the CCP mucking around in US penny stocks?

- ChinAmerica Andy Movie Entertainment Media Company (aka, Court Document Services)

- AF Ocean Inv Mgt (aka, Dinello Restaurant Ventures)

I thought the MO of the CCP was to "withdraw" money out of the SOE's and mainland real estate market so they could reinvest the proceeds in Vancouver, Sydney, SF and LA real estate.

He's not perfect though. I saw him walking across the Yangtse River the other day so I don't think he can swim.

A Whois search for afocean.com gets an email address fan4fantasy at yahoo.com, physical address in Nevada. Searching the email address gets an Andy Fan saying he sells real estate in California, so we can add that to his CV too:

I think I have found a bio to rival Andy Z's! This is the funniest thing I have ever read on SEC.gov:

"Thomas Anthony Guerriero. Oxford City FC's President CEO Mr. Thomas Anthony Guerriero has over fifteen years of extensive upper executive experience. Mr. Guerriero began his career in the financial markets in 1998, and soon thereafter earned the position of Senior Vice President of the securities division of First Union (FTU: NYSE), one of the largest institutions in the world with over $400 billion in client assets. After First Union was acquired by Wachovia, (WB: NYSE) Mr. Guerriero continued to build his client base and team through several institutions and think tanks, eventually etching his name in stone industry wide, by becoming the CEO of a Member Firm, TAA. There he gained the prestigious recognition of being one of the youngest individuals to ever head a member firm.

His success at TAA led him towards the second acquisition in his career, this time by High Point Capital. Mr. Guerriero's unique ability to create unique systems both technical and fundamentally, recruit, train, mentor, and inspire individuals through his creative methodologies has led him to be known industry wide. His most recent acquisition was at the helm of Global Wealth as CEO. He was able to maximize profitability and surpass all expectations in the face of the toughest economic climate of our generation, leading towards the third acquisition of his career of Global Wealth and its Institute of Finance.

In 2011, he was nominated, accepted, and confirmed as one of the youngest into Marquis's Who's Who in America. Also in 2011 Mr. Guerriero became one of the youngest owners of a professional sports team. He became an owner of a professional basketball team, the Springfield Armor in the NBA D league (The NJ Nets Affiliate). In 2012 he was named to the Board of Z squared technology.
