In this day and age the world is at our fingertips. At work, at home, even on our cellphones we are never far from the World Wide Web. When I was first asked to be a part of what I later found out was the All Freight Logistics scam, I got involved based on trust of my friends. MOSTLY on trust. That’s not to say I didn’t google my ass off as well. I googled Glyn Richards, Glen Richards, Glenn Richards, Glynn Richards, Glennifer Richards, in a addition to a host of “All Freight Logistics” combinations. I was skeptical … ONE bad result on Google would have saved me thousands.
What I found was nothing.
Just like his King’s Highway Audubon office had no signage of any sort, Glyn Richards, (our Glyn Richards) had no “webprint” so to speak of either. (I did find Glyn Richards the author.) I later found out that HAD I googled Garden State Brokerage and Glyn Richards together, I’d have gotten a very helpful freight forwarder board called “ALLEGED CROOKED BROKERS.” (And Mr. Richards is mentioned on that board. Shocked?!?) But with just googling his name, that result was buried 100’s of pages in.
The goal of this blog is threefold. It is part therapy for those that have been victimized, part a place to share information, and lastly, and maybe most important, it’s a warning. A warning that frauds exists in general, and a warning that ours, in particular exists. Glyn Richards will go to jail someday, but for now he is free and may seek new “investors”. If other “investors” are approached, I hope they take 2 seconds to Google “glyn richards.”
This blog will be there waiting for them on the first page of results. (Currently number 2 over all.) Give it a try!
