  1. All about targets

    The only checking an expat adviser firm will do at interview is ask for how much commission was milked from the previous clients. If it was shed loads of money, out comes the new contract. If the interviewee talks about doing the right thing, out the door he goes.

    Still prefer Dogstill. Working on a prototype.
    Seriously though, it looks like some of the scammers might have found a safe haven if only for a short time. The top man at Woodbrook may take a little convincing as he may feel that he has to justify his decision to take on these people. I guess that it is his problem if he allows pride to destroy the company that he has built. Some people have to wait until their underwear is aflame before they will accept that their house is burning down. I am happy to discuss my experiences with him as I guess that many other victims will be.
    Many people now know of the failure of CWM and the reasons for it. We, the victims, do not wish for the same thing to happen to other innocent, hard working and honest folk. It is no problem for me to tell the truth of my situation and to tell prospective clients that some of the senior guys from the organisation that destroyed my financial security during retirement now work for Woodbrook. I believe that many of the other victims feel the same way. There is no deception or untruth in that statement. It would be sad if Woodbrook became collateral damage on the way to hitting the wanted targets. There are casualties in any war. Just ask the victims of CWM.

    Alan Gorringe looks much older than in his wedding photos from 2015. Must be that the life style of excess that he managed while at CWM has taken its toll.

    Kirby in Australia. That continent is already plagued by the greatest number of poisonous species in the world and now another one arrives! Have a number of contacts in Oz. Will alert them. He’ll need a deep hole to hide in. Coober Pedy perhaps?

          Thank you Angie. Would definitely appreciate any information on his whereabouts. Have you dropped him a Christmas card? I was thinking of something else. Something more pagan in origin. The Viking, Ragnar Lothbrok, was known to “draw a blood eagle” on the backs of those who betrayed him. Pity he is not alive now.

      Apparently he fled to Byron Bay to stay with his brother – with empty pockets and nothing except his booze and drug habit to show for years of scamming victims

    I should add that Coober Pedy in the Aboriginal language means “white man’s burrow”. White people built living places under ground to shield themselves from the extreme heat and unrelenting sunshine.
