So Glyn Richards once again made it into the paper. It was a nice article and Jim Walsh did a really nice job. I was happy the blog got some press. That was my main goal of starting this blog. To make Glyn Richards findable on the web. I, like may others, searched for him before I invested and found nothing. Any information would have saved me and others like me that searched, $1000’s and $1000’s.
The article comments at the end gave voice to a lot of people that wanted to take anonymous pot shots about how dumb the investors are, how we got what deserved, we were greedy, etc. etc. I do not easily fathom how JOHN Q. PUBLIC reads a story about two teachers that get ripped off by an EX CONVICT with a rap sheet a mile long, and automatically choose to slam the victims of the crime and give the ex-con a pass. Fascinating.
But in the end, no comment is a bad one, and all comments serve what was my original purpose. MORE EXPOSURE for GLYN RICHARDS and his alleged crimes. The comments that call us dumb are just as effective, if not more, at keeping Glyn Richards highly visible and exposed. So, it sucks for people to call you stupid that you invested…No one likes that, but every keystroke positive or negative is worth it to keep the story where potential victims can find it. The biggest mistake people victimized by white-collar crime make is SILENCE. They get embarrassed and never speak of it again.
I took another route. I decided to tell as many people as I know, because I don’t want it to happen to anyone else. I am not embarrassed, or ashamed, or greedy, and I don’t want sympathy. I just want to make people aware. And I have.
So, here you go…comment away. Good, Bad or Different…they all serve the blogs purpose of keeping him exposed. It’s hard to scam people when you are this exposed…
