  1. Dennis,

    You are out of line making the statements you have during the past couple of years! For example if you took the time before making the defamatory statements you would find:

    – There is no injunction against myself or any company I am involved with
    – We did not send spam to your wife “Debbie” as there has been an existing business relationship and we have never been asked to remove her from any of our lists
    – We have not stolen data and in fact when we were accused of that in High Court last year, we defended ourselves with success and were offered a settlement agreement including court costs form the other party

    You also continue to alienate yourself from our past dealings, even though you have accepted thousands of dollars from me, worked on data collection and compiling together, and have built almost all of your marketing around our products using the very same methods you classify as spam.

    If you feel the need to continue insulting, defaming me and do not simply stop the negative publishing. I can very easily begin to show the public your true colors and just who you are. But I would much rather choose to leave the past (“you”) behind as I have been trying to do. I think you are just bitter because you simply could not manipulate me as you do to those around you…

    I would appreciate it if you would remove the articles you have published and would hope you would be better than trying to provoke me or making me into the enemy…

    • Innocent? I stand behind every word written about you thus far, Brendan. I have chosen all my words very carefully and freely acknowledge your extraordinary talent at scraping and compiling data, creativity in marketing and sheer chutzpah. In that regard your talent borders on genius, but when anyone goes over the line however (and I know that you have more than once) I believe that the truth should be spoken. In regards to what you say about me . . . well, you can think or say what you like freely as the Internet is available to you as it is to me. In regards to the quality of your products, having used them, I would advise the public to pass on them.

  2. Offers from Brendan company seem very good. I know their is bad press when you perform a simple google search but this happens with any successful company. Jealousy is a curse of many…. people will always try to drag you down to feel better.

    In this instance Brendan is defending himself and could have simply erased this if wished. The cases involving spam in NZ, etc are very thin IMO. As probably millions of companies try spam all the time. In terms of yellow Pages allegations he stole information it has been determined in Australia that you cannot OWN a public phone book contents as such, just the branding.

    In affect, people could get Asian data operators to populate their own databases from all these directories and I know people who do. Whether programmers can compile a lot faster, then it up to the company to secure themselves against this.

    Overall in the reports I have seen Brendan is a business guy trying to make a buck and has been singled out. Have a look at the email listers in the USA…. they offer compiled listings all over the place. What you choose to do with the lists you obtain is totally up to you after purchase.

    You should adhere SPAM rules in your own country and stop blaming the compilers. They do offer a service… if they breaking any rules (Spam wise) then they are held accountable for own actions.

    The above person seems to have an agenda of their own, and blames Brendan for business failings or is jealous. Like he stated Brendan is a genius in compiling data. Sounds like jealousy to me. As you performing the exact same spamming with his work.

    What is over the line…. each country has their own rules. You are not the judge of this- neither am I.

    Brendan should have the freedom to compile all the data he wishes. I would love a great deal from him to target my own target market. People can select to opt out of anything I offer- no problems then they taken off the list.

    For NZ to treat Brendan like this- if you click OPT OUT I am sure his database records it. Just an unjust justice system whom have had a few complaints by those far less talented to compile than Brendan.

    Keep up the good work Brendan.

    Cheers Joe

    • Thank you for commenting here Joe.

      Offers from Brendan company seem very good.

      You clearly have not used his data. I have.

      If you are applying these comments to me, you have clearly missed the mark, Joe.

      Arguably I know more about Brendan’s “bad press” than anyone else in New Zealand. I have helped him by speaking the truth against others who have had an agenda more than once in the past, and sometimes to my own personal cost and business disadvantage. I have worked with Brendan and speak with a lot of knowledge and experience but will not repeat personal details publicly. Jealousy has nothing to do with it and I stand behind every word I’ve written thus far.

  3. In fact as far as the below is concerned Brendan offers people to Opt out whenever they wish- just click the button if you do not want anymore mail. This adheres to the Aussie rules…I have no idea in NZ.

    >>You have received this email from IMG (Special Offers) subscribed as “debbie@***.co.nz”

  4. And IMG, it appears, is STILL spamming in 2012 –

    2 of my email addresses have been subscribed to IMG lists without my permission – I have never requested to be on any of the IMG mailing lists or had a business relationship with IMG or any of it’s companies or affiliates. I phoned and asked to be taken off the list yet I still received unwanted emails.

    IMO – Most spammers play on the fact that most people won’t complain – well they picked the wrong person here.

    It’s not rocket science – anyone can compile a list and start sending email but most people adhere to the laws – it appears IMG is in breach of Anti-Spamming laws and I have reported specific details of events to the authorities in NZ, Australia and the USA.

    I hope they deal with companies and individuals that continue to disregard the rules.

    Spammers sux…
