In this post I analyse the entire IRTA Board Members’ Universal Currency accounts one-by-one looking at historical performance and spotting trends. Some accounts are in good standing but others are NOT. Except for two, I keep the actual names of the IRTA Board Members confidential but any UC Member can identify their Board Member of interest’s historical balances. I show you how to view these graphs in real-time. There are some real shockers in there with Bartercard’s insane indebtedness taking the cake.
As part of the research for my recent post where I analysed the top debtors within Universal Currency, I asked some UC Members to have a quick nosey at Board Members* historical balances. I validated a sample of the data I received, comparing it with more than one source and while they were sometimes in a different format, they matched in content so I’m confident that these are accurate figures, current as of this past week.
The GETS system, as I’ve been finding out recently has a truckload of intersting and valuable information ‘tucked away’ but all in full view. UC Members I’m told can simply click on the little graph button to get these graphics (minus my red-lining of course).
Find the Board Member’s listing and click on the GRAPH icon. That’s it!
I’ve colour-coded the graphs by my usual traffic light coding – GREEN is good. Orange raises questions and RED is bad.
So, that’s exactly half the IRTA Board all in relatively good standing.
A few newbies; a few who seem to know what’s going on and a few in for a rude shock.
Now, to the ones with questions:
So to the bad boys . . .
IRTA Board Members, you have a hell of a lot of explaining to do. UC Committee Chairman and Committee you could easily be facing criminal charges!
I have a lot more that I could share (some of it pretty juicy too if you’re into nights of the long knives) but I’m changing gear a little now.
To be honest I’ve had a hoot exploring this rabbit-warren of deception and outing the crooks, liars and greedy, but there’s a limit to how much lancing the boil is required. If people can’t see what the heck is happening in IRTAcard-land by now they never will, even if I did a full audit of the UC currency; slammed it in their faces; put a loaded gun to their head and said, “Read!”
Over the next week or so when the dust dies down from my massive exposure of the fraud, nepotism and corruption that is occurring in this space, I will be turning my attention to where-to from here for the little people – the ones who are carrying the risk and the ones who do not have a meaningful say in the running of their Association and their currency.
Following that I will be turning my attention to the bigger issues that the industry faces. I’ve always said that I put aside 18 months to explore this topic. A month into it I think I understand the IRTAcard complex pretty jolly well; have made a few enemies; launched a defamation lawsuit to defend my reputation (that’s a first BTW); I’ve outed a few fools, crooks and crazies, played with a bit of satire [one dude actually believed the IRTAcard story BTW, so that must have been pretty well done] and written the equivalent of a decent sized book in the process! Whew!
A few months ago, after completing The Ormita Report. I toyed with the idea of dabbling with a bit of fiction. After the IRTAcard lot poked their noses into my face, I think that would be a real let down now. Exploring real life is much more exciting. Unless I get a rush of blood to my head, I’ll be leaving the fiction to the other guys!
I think I heard from the NSA that there’s a Media Release coming out from IRTAcard about the health of UC and the excellent conduct of the IRTA Board on their UC accounts shortly . . .
Thanks for reading . . . stay tuned and slip me any feedback you want via the tipline or the comments!
* E & OE. I’ve done the best I can to match from my knowledge of the individual Board Members, with their known businesses.
